Below you will find the Home Learning for this week. These opportunities and activities will support your children to embed and extend the learning they are doing in school. You are also welcome to continue with the Phonics and Maths booklets included in your Home Learning packs. These do not need to be returned to school.
Home Learning challenge:
You also have access to the Phonics Play website, which is a fantastic way of practising those Phase 3 skills:

You should be continuing to read with your child daily, as well as sharing Bedtime Stories as these are so important. You still have access to the online reading books on the Home Learning.
In Maths this week, we are returning to thinking about number. To bring us back to focusing on number we will be having a number hunt and focusing on number formation as lots of the children are still writing numbers backwards or forming them incorrectly. Once we are back in the 'Number Zone' we will be finding out about odd and even numbers by exploring socks, number lines and number patterns. Below you will find the number formation rhymes we use in school to practise at home this week and some odd and even number activities that you can do at home. Talk to your child about odd and even numbers. You could cut out some number cards and sort them into odd and even numbers, create a number line and lift the odd numbers up or discuss them as you pair up socks from the washing pile.
Across the Curriculum
To extend your child's learning around 'Once There Were Giants' you might like to look back through baby photographs and family photographs and talk about the ways your family have grown and changed over the years. You could also use a mirror to help your children create their own self-portrait (drawing, painting, natural materials etc) or draw your whole family. Talk together about your hopes for the future and reinforce the importance of being happy and healthy.
