This week our text is about dinosaurs. Complete the Dinosaur Stomp on Koo Koo Kanga Roo. What other things interest you? Choose some other dances that get your body moving and exercising. Have fun following your own interests.
Now we will practise 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.

Reading Challenge: Now ask your child to apply the sound of the day into reading a sentence; I throw the dog a hoop.
Writing Challenge: Now ask your child to write the sentence, I can bend low and jump up high.
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. This week please practise the following words; their, were, do, I, they, the, old, was. Can you now read these words at speed?
COMMUNICATION AND LANGUAGE
Word Aware: Word of the week 'around'. Firstly follow the link below where this week one of the fabulous team of speech therapists will introduce the term 'around' with the help of Concept Cat. Then go for a walk and when you come to any obstacles, talk about going around them. Use a toy figure and an object such as a toy tree or toy furniture. Act out and talk about the figure going around the objects. Talk about sitting around the table or walking around brothers and sisters who are playing. When riding on a bike or scooter, place some obstacles that the children need to go around. Continue to use the word around throughout the week.
Look at and discuss the following coins, 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1.00 and £2.00 coins. Discuss the shape, colour, patterns and symbols on each side. Sort a selection of coins by value, naming the coins as you are sorting them. Sing 5 currant buns in a Baker's shop. How much would it cost to buy three cakes? If I had 4p how many cakes could I buy?
In one hand look at 1p, 1p and the other hand a 2p coin. Both sets are worth the same value. The two coins are worth 2 pence and the 1 coin is worth 2 pence. Then in one set, look at x5 1p coins in the other set look at a 5p coin. Again both sets are worth the same value. The five 1p coins are worth 5 pence and the one 5p coin is worth 5 pence. Then in one set, look at x10 1p coins in the other set look at a 10p coin. Again both sets are worth the same value. The ten 1p coins are worth 10 pence and the one 10p coin is worth 10 pence. Then in one set, look at x20 1p coins in the other set look at a 20p coin. Again both sets are worth the same value. The twenty 1p coins are worth 20 pence and the one 20p coin is worth 20 pence. We need different coins otherwise we would have to carry too many coins if we only had 1p coins.
Then create a 1p shop label items of different prices from 1p-10p. Each player starts with x20 1p coins. They buy different things from the shop. Do they still have enough money to keep going and buy more? Eventually they won't, so if you don't have enough money you can't buy it. Draw a picture and label with the amount the purchases you are able to make today.
The Worrysaurus liked it when he knew what lay ahead. What does 'lay ahead' mean. Talk about how you could make a plan. Would making a plan make you feel better? It made the 'Worrysaurus' feel better. Draw your own map of something you plan to do. It could be a special day in the garden. It could be a walk you like to go on. What might you expect to see along the way?
