Choose your 30 minute daily exercise from Joe Wicks, Oti Mabuse, Just Dance or something else that gets your heart beating fast.

Continue to practise developing your fluency in running, jumping, hopping and skipping. Maybe you can side step or even combine some actions and hopscotch around? Can you do these actions in a straight line? Maybe you can follow a curved path (wobbly line)? 


Do you have any crayons? Can you explore different ways of making marks; circles, dots, dashes, straight, curved and zig zag lines. Can you now practise forming the following letters; v, x, w, z. Remember to form each letter accurately. Refer to the hand writing ditty sheet to help you. 


Our sound of the day is ay (as in may I play). Using the green phonics folder, practise the ay sound. The sound is made up of two letters but makes one sound, which is ay. Then practise reading the ay words. Firstly encourage your child to identify the special friend in the word, (in this case ay) then Fred talk the word; p l ay, then say the word in full; play. Now ask your child to apply the sound of the day into reading a sentence; I like to play with my toys in the house.

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 play? 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, I play with my toys and then I put them away. 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. 


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, choose your own book.

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; it's, see, looked, very, look, don't, come. They can be written on paper and added to your word wallet. 


Reflect on the week. Can you name and describe 2D and 3D shapes using the language accurately? Can you discuss, copy, continue and create your own patterns? Use this time to practise and sharpen your skills in weaker areas. Not all children will have the same strengths and weaknesses, return to an activity where extra practise would benefit your own child. 


Today is 75 years since the end of World War 2. People up and down the country celebrated. On VE day, street parties took place all over the country to celebrate.

No party is a party without some decorations and this was the case when people held their celebrations at home. Can you design and create your own party decorations. You might make bunting, flags, posters, party hats etc. Can you design a picnic with all your favourite foods to have at your very own VE Day party?
