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 c, a, o, q, g. 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 "00", followed by New: Set 2 Spelling with Rosie "00" 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; I took my black dog to the park for a run.


Writing Challenge: Now ask your child to write the sentence, I hurt my foot so I had to hop about.

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.

Week 9 words to learn at speed.


Word Aware, word of the week; above. Hold up one hand. Then hold the other one above it. Look at a set of drawers. Identify a drawer in the middle and talk to children about the drawer above. Talk about what you can see that is above a certain point in the room, such as a window. Make a tower of different colour bricks, point to and name a brick then talk about which ones are above it. As the week progresses continue to talk about things that are above other things. 


Count in steps of 1 to 20, then order a mixed set of 0-20 numeral cards. (Turn over the odd numbers; 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19). Now chant from 0-20 in steps of 2 using the number line created to help, then 20-0 in steps of 2. Can you manage this without referring to the number line? Next to the numerals layout pairs of items, such as shoes or socks. Then count up to 20 again in steps of 2, touching the physical objects.

Then play how many do we have, encouraging children to count in 2's. If you had 5 pairs of shoes, count as 2,4,6,8,10 (touching each pair as you count in 2's) you would have 10 shoes altogether. If you had 7 pairs of socks, count as 2,4,6,8,10,12,14 (touching each pair as you count in 2's) you would have 14 socks altogether. Count various sets of objects up to 10 in 2's so that the largest quantity would be 20. Challenge: draw a picture of 5 shoe boxes, how many shoes would be in 5 boxes? (Children can touch each box picture as they count in 2's). Outdoors; write the numbers 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20 for children to jump on and shout out the number throughout the day, so that they develop fluency in counting to 20 in steps of 2. 


Listen to the story of Little Red Riding Hood (follow the link below).  After you have listened to the story discuss the physical appearance of Little Red Riding Hood and talk about her appearance, such as her short brown hair, her long sleeved blue dress, her red and blue stripped tights, her blue shoes, her red hooded cape, and how she carries a brown basket with food covered by a red and white checked cloth. Then draw a picture of Little Red Riding Hood, including as many of the features that you have discussed as you can. Refer back to the illustrations to help you. Save your work for tomorrow's writing task.
