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

Continue to 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 shaving foam and a baking tray? Spray a small amount of foam and flatten down 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; d, e, s, f. Remember to form each letter accurately. Refer to the hand writing ditty sheet to help you. 


Our sound of the day is oo (as in, poo at the zoo). Using the green phonics folder, practise the oo sound. The sound is made up of two letters but makes one sound, which is oo. Then practise reading the oo words. Firstly encourage your child to identify the special friend in the word, (in this case oo) then Fred talk the word; m oo, then say the word in full; moo. Now ask your child to apply the sound of the day into reading a sentence; I hid from my mum, then I said boo.

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 moo? Two sounds, hold up two 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 went to the zoo with my dad. 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. 


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. Are your scores faster or slower than yesterday? Remember, if you need some help you could look at a number line, use your fingers or even use a set of objects. 

Today can you use your counting skills to help you prepare a fruit salad? You might need help to prepare the different fruits to start with. As you are watching, look carefully at the fruit, at both the outside and the inside of the fruit that is being prepared. Talk about the colour of the skin, what you find inside the fruit; flesh, pip, core etc. Look at how the different fruits are both similar and different to one another.

Now your in charge, you will need to get a bowl for each person who would like some of your fruit salad. In each bowl put in 20 chunks of (apple), 12 pieces of (banana), 16 pieces of (grapes), 14 pieces of (strawberries) etc. (Fruit may need to be cut up into smaller pieces than usual to enable children to count out amounts between 10-20 into each bowl). Now your ready to serve your fruit salad, knowing everyone has the same amount in their bowls. Eat and enjoy. 

To finish can you count the objects on the screen and match the picture to the correct bee using your finger? 

Counting pictorial objects to 20.


This afternoon we are going to be encouraging hedgehogs into our garden by providing them with a safe home. The hedgehog may even stay in your garden in the Winter months when they choose to hibernate. Can you find out some information about hedgehogs using a book or the internet? There is also some information on the sheet under the section, "Did you know?" Perhaps you can find out what the word hibernate means too?
