This week we will be completing various dance, movement, exercise, fitness and yoga routines. Each day we will practice a routine to support our understanding of the Little Red Riding Hood story. Some days we will repeat a session already completed to enable the children to get really good and develop their fluency in all of the different moves they will be completing. Follow the link below to access the dance, movement and exercise routines for today, have fun.
Now we will practice 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.
Watch the online phonics session with Rosie, this will be played at 9:30 then available for 24 hours. Find the lessons on You Tube: Read Write Inc: New: Set 2 Speed Sound with Rosie "ir", followed by New: Set 2 Spelling with Rosie "ir" and to finish either Red words 1 with Rosie or Red words 2 with Rosie.
Reading Challenge: . Now ask your child to apply the sound of the day into reading a sentence; The dog ran in the wet mud then shook the dirt on me.
Writing Challenge: Now ask your child to write the sentence, I ran fast and was first to get back to the car. 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.
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!
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; too, by, day, made, time, I'm, if. 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.
Practise counting in 1's from 0-20 and back from 20-0. Count in 2's from 0-20 and in 2's starting from 1 to 19. Count in 10's from 0-100 and in 5's from 0-50. Use a number line or 100 square to help you count. Either verbally or through copying and completing the ladders, complete the missing numbers on the ladders to help you improve your knowledge of counting in 2's, 5's and 10's.
Use the rest of the time to continue to practise skills learnt Monday-Thursday where children would benefit from continuing to practise with counting in steps of 2, 5, or 10 or consolidating their knowledge of odd or even numbers.

Many of you have been on walks through lots of lovely woodland areas during lock down. Can you talk about some of the things that you saw in the woods. You may have taken some photographs that you can refer to or could even go an afternoon walk before you complete your writing activity. I want you to think about the woods Little Red Riding Hood went though to reach her Grandmother's house, the woods you have been through and use this knowledge to help you describe the woods in the picture below. Think about some of the things you may see, hear, smell and touch. Can you write some sentences to describe the picture. I look forward to reading your description of the woodland setting.
