This week we will be completing the Mr Move It - Lets Get Moving workout. We will repeat the workout each day so that we get really good and develop our fluency in all of the different moves we will be completing. Follow the link below to access the ten minute workout, have fun.
Now we will practise our letter formation, use different writing resources across the week to ensure children don't become bored but maintain their interest and enthusiasm. Today focus on the letters v, x, w, z. Remember to form each letter accurately. Refer to the handwriting ditty sheet to help you.
Our sound of the day is ou (as in, shout it out). Using the green phonics folder, practise the ou sound. The sound is made up of two letters but makes one sound, which is ou. Then practise reading the ou words. Firstly encourage your child to identify the special friend in the word, (in this case ou) then Fred talk the word; s ou n d, then say the word in full; sound. Now ask your child to apply the sound of the day into reading a sentence; I bang and stamp to get a sound from my feet.
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 round? Four sounds, hold up four 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 found a black dog in the park. 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.
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; will, into, back, from, children, him, Mr. They can be written on paper and added to your word wallet. If children are still learning previous sets of words, continue to practise the other words then introduce this set as and when they are ready.
Count forwards to 30 and back from 20. Can you rescue Jack from the top of the beanstalk?
You will need: the 1-12 leaf numbers; made Wednesday, a die, a character for each player, 5 - cards and 5 + cards facing down in a pile.
What to do: place Jack at the top of the beanstalk on number 12, each player chooses a small world character and puts their character on 0. Turn a card (+/-) then roll die, follow the two instructions, so +4 would mean the player moves on four leaves, remember not to count the leaf you are on. Next time they may get -2 so they would have to count back 2 leaves, again remember not to count the leaf you are already on. Who will manage to rescue Jack from the top of the beanstalk? Repeat a number of times so that the children learn how to count on and back and understand that this links to the + and - symbols.
