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

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 some flour and a baking tray? Sprinkle a small amount of flour over the tray to cover the base. Then use your finger to create some patterns. 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; c, a, o, q, g. Remember to form each letter accurately. Refer to the hand writing ditty sheet to help you. 



Our sound of the day is ow (as in, blow the snow). Using the green phonics folder, practise the ow sound. The sound is made up of two letters but makes one sound, which is ow. Then practise reading the ow words. Firstly encourage your child to identify the special friend in the word, (in this case ow) then Fred talk the word; b l ow, then say the word in full; blow. Now ask your child to apply the sound of the day into reading a sentence; You can see the snow on the path.

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 blow? 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 like to play in the snow. 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; help, Mrs, called, here, about, asked, saw. They can be written on paper and added to your word wallet. 

Week 4 words to learn at speed.


Word Aware, word of the week; rough. Place rough and not rough objects in a feely bag. Take turns in selecting objects from the bag. Support the children in identifying if the object is rough or not rough. Sort into two piles. Walk around the house and garden looking for rough things. Remember and discuss all of the rough things touched throughout the week.  


Start by counting forwards and backwards to 30. Using the pack of shuffled number cards to 20 can you identify 1 more than all of the numbers? Can you identify 1 less than all of the numbers? Are you quicker at identifying 1 more or 1 less? Perhaps you could play again and time yourself and see. Keep your score and see if you can beat your time tomorrow. If you need some help you could look at a number line, use your fingers or even use a set of objects. 

Today I would like you to make a number book, number poster, or number line, you may have your own to give you some ideas. After you have made it you could keep it to help you with your own learning or give it to a younger sibling as a gift. You will need to form each number accurately then draw pictures or cut out pictures from an old catalogue or magazine to represent the number. You will need to check you have accurately drawn or glued the correct amount of objects to match each number. I look forward to seeing your work on Tapestry tonight.
