# Thursday

PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT

Did you enjoy the Tiny T-Rex yoga? If you did, then follow the link again or alternatively choose another yoga session that is based on your own interests. Have fun, whatever you choose to do.

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.

LITERACY: PHONICS

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 "ar", followed by New: Set 2 Spelling with Rosie "ar" 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; We went in the car to the farm.

Writing Challenge: Now ask your child to write the sentence,  I had a mark on my arm.

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.

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?

MATHEMATICS

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. Place the coins in value the smallest at one end; 1p and the biggest amount at the other end of the line; £2.00. Sing 5 Currant Buns in a Baker's Shop.

Look at two purse images, the first with a 5p in, the second with a 1p, 1p, 1p in. Discuss how much money is in each purse. Remember more coins doesn't mean that you have more money to spend. How many currant buns could I buy with each amount? (5 buns with 5 pence and 3 buns with 3 pence) Which value is worth the most? (Five pence is more than three pence). Repeat with different amounts in the purse images.

EXPRESSIVE ARTS AND DESIGN

Draw, colour/paint and cut out a picture of your favourite dinosaur.  Think carefully about the colour of your dinosaur if you want to make it realistic or have fun decorating a new imaginative dinosaur. Add on an eye, nostrils, ears and mouth to bring it to life. Then decorate an egg shape, cut it out and cut a zig zag line across your dinosaur egg. Place your dinosaur behind the dinosaur egg to create the effect of the dinosaur popping out! Finally, add some ripped paper or packaging to create the nest.
