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.
Our sound of the day is ir (as in whirl and twirl). Using the green phonics folder, practise the ir sound. The sound is made up of two letters but makes one sound, which is ir. Then practise reading the ir words. Firstly encourage your child to identify the special friend in the word, (in this case ir) then Fred talk the word; s t ir, then say the word in full; stir.
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 stir? Three sounds, hold up three fingers, then pinch each finger as you say the sound. Children can then write the word. As an extension, you could ask your child to write the sentence, I stir the mix to cook. 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, and air, 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.
MATHEMATICS: SHAPE, SPACE AND MEASURE
For this task we are going to be looking at the work of the artist Paul Cezanne who was a still life artist. He painted what he saw. Look at the bowl of fruit (image below). Is the bowl full or empty? Do you think anymore fruit might fit in? How many pieces of fruit are there in the bowl? How many pieces of fruit are on the table? How many pieces of fruit are there altogether?
Can you draw three bowls of fruit; one that is full, one that is half full and one that is empty and correctly label them. If you have a bowl and some fruits you could explore using the fruits then draw what you see.

UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD
With your parents I would like you to watch Beginners Bible the Easter Story to help you understand why we celebrate Easter. We would have made a Easter card this week, perhaps you could make one at home and send it to someone who you can't visit at the moment. You could write a special message in your card.
During the holiday you might also choose to make an Easter bonnet, take part in an Easter Egg Hunt, decorate a hard boiled egg, make chocolate Easter nests, make a Easter themed basket and even an Easter garden to help you recall and retell the story. There will also be some interesting clips to watch and discuss on Discovery Education, follow the link on the home learning page.
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!
