PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT

Get your heart beating fast with Joe, Oti or Just Dance movement sessions or even make up your own workout session. Keep going for 30 minutes to give your body the full benefit of your choice of fitness session. 

LITERACY: PHONICS

Our sound of the day is igh (as in, Fly high). Using the green phonics folder, practise the igh sound. The sound is made up of three letters but makes one sound, which is igh. Then practise reading the igh words. Firstly encourage your child to identify the special friend in the word, (in this case igh) then Fred talk the word; m igh t, then say the word in full; might. Now ask your child to apply the sound of the day into reading a sentence; The light was bright in the night.

Children can then practise spelling the words, this can be done by listening to the word and wiggling your fingers. How many sounds can you hear in night? Three sounds, hold up three fingers, then pinch each finger as you say the sound. Children can then write the word. Now ask your child to write the sentence, At night I put on my light. Encourage your child to start the sentence with a capital letter, after they sound out and record each word remind them to leave a finger space before starting to write the next word. Finally remind them to finish the sentence with a full stop. 

Now flick back to ay, ee, igh, ow, oo, oo, ar, or, air, ir, ou and oy, encourage your child to identify the sound without seeing the picture clue and read and spell some of the words. Continue to watch the Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons on either Facebook or You Tube, set 2 sounds are now streamed live at 10.00 then are available for 24 hours. 

LITERACY:READING

Remember to practise your reading at least three times a week by either reading your book in your book bag or logging onto Reading Buddy. Develop your fluency by re-reading the same text a number of times. Practise makes perfect! Today, read the book, Rocket.

Also remember to practise the words in your high frequency word wallet so you don't forget them. The words you are able to recognise in your wallet should now be read accurately when you are reading a text. Each week we will focus on new words to build up the breadth of words you able to recognise. This week please practise the following words; them, do, me, down, dad, big, went. They can be written on paper and added to your word wallet. 

 

MATHEMATICS: NUMBER

Today we will be learning to recognise and sequence numbers to 20 and compare amounts using the language more and fewer.

Start by counting by rote from 0-20, emphasise the 'teen' part of the word when counting (thirteen, fourteen), then count backwards from 20-0. Using a mixed pack of number cards from 0-20 check that the children can accurately read the numbers at speed. Teach the numbers that the children are struggling with. Then play a game with either dice or playing cards or even have a go at both games!

Dice game; roll two dice, one from each hand. Encourage the children to identify which has more spots and which has fewer spots or even the same amount of spots. Then roll four dice, two from each hand. Which set of dice has more spots, which set of dice has fewer spots?

Card game; using the cards ace to 10 (remove Jack, Queen, King) children to turn over two cards and identify which card has more or fewer symbols on. 

Finally can the children order a mixed pack of number cards 0-20? Get the children to look away and turn over five numbers. Can the children identify which numbers have been turned? Can they explain their thinking using the following language (1 more than, 1 less than, is in between, comes before, comes after, is bigger than, is smaller than)? Can they identify 1 more and 1 less than a given number to 20? 

EXPRESSIVE ARTS AND DESIGN

Using some clean recycled materials such as boxes, tubes, tubs, lids, foil and plastic trays can you create your own model? Use your own imagination to think what you would like to make. Use scissors, glue or tape to shape and join the materials together to achieve your planned effect. Think carefully about the size and shape of the materials as you are selecting them.
