This week we will be completing various Koo Koo Kanga Roo dance, movement and exercise routines. Each day choose a new routine and continue to practise the routines you have already learnt the day before so by Friday you should be up to 5 dances. This will enable you to get really good and develop your fluency in all of the different moves you will be completing. Follow the link below to access the dance, movement and exercise routines, have fun.


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 r, h, b, n, m, k, p. 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 "ee", followed by New: Set 2 Spelling with Rosie "ee" 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 keep a soft toy in my bed.

Writing Challenge: Now ask your child to write the sentence,  I need to sleep in my bed at night. 

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; make, an. 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.


Count in steps of 10 to 100, showing 10 fingers as the count increases by 10 each time. Write numbers 0,10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90 and 100 on small pieces of paper and muddle them up. Can the children order the numerals in steps of 10? Turn a number in the sequence, which one is missing? Can children use their knowledge of the pattern in the tens number to identify which number is missing? Repeat a number of times. If I'm counting in 10's what number will I say after 80? What number would I say before 60? (Children can chant and use the number line to help them). Repeat a number of times.

Using the cards from the number line write p after each number so that they read 10p, 20p, 30p, 40p, 50p, 60p, 70p, 80p, 90p and 100p (£1.00), discuss how 100p is the same as a £1.00 and show the children a £1.00 coin. Collect ten, 10p coins. Shuffle the pack (10p-100p) then turn a number. Count out the amount needed in quantities of 10 pence pieces. So if 50p was turned, count out as 10p, 20p, 30p, 40p, 50p as each 10p coin is put down. Repeat with the other values. Challenge create a shop where the items cost between 10p and 100p, children use their coins to buy various items then take a turn as the shop keeper checking the amounts given.

Outdoors; write the numbers 0,10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100 for children to jump on and shout out the number throughout the day, so that they develop fluency in counting to 100 in steps of 10. Once confident practice counting backwards from 100 to 0.


Listen to the story of Little Red Riding Hood then think about the following questions. What should Little Red Riding Hood have done to keep herself safe when walking through the Woods? What did her Mummy tell her? Was it a good idea for her Mummy to send her to Grandma's by herself? How could Grandma have prevented the Wolf from entering her house? When we go out how do we keep our homes safe?

Can you draw and label someways that Little Red Riding Hood and her family could keep themselves safe in the future?
