Wednesday

PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT

Get your heart beating fast with Joe, Oti or Just Dance movement sessions or even make up your own workout session. Keep going for 30 minutes to give your body the full benefit of your choice of fitness session. 

LITERACY: PHONICS

Our sound of the day is ay (as in may I play). Using the green phonics folder, practise the ay sound. The sound is made up of two letters but makes one sound, which is ay. Then practise reading the ay words. Firstly encourage your child to identify the special friend in the word, (in this case ay) then Fred talk the word; p l ay, then say the word in full; play. Now ask your child to apply the sound of the day into reading a sentence; I like to play with the tray and cups.

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 play? Three sounds, hold up three 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 spray the tray then I can  play. 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. 

LITERACY:READING

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; them, do, me, down, dad, big, went. They can be written on paper and added to your word wallet. 

 

MATHEMATICS: NUMBER

Today we will be learning to recognise, count out and sequence numbers to 20.

Start by counting by rote from 0-20, emphasise the 'teen' part of the word when counting (thirteen, fourteen), then count backwards from 20-0. Using a mixed pack of number cards from 0-20 check that the children can accurately read the numbers at speed. Teach the numbers that the children are struggling with. Then the children need to create 11 bags of objects; in the bags they need to put either 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 or 20 objects. Then the adult can place the numbers 10-20 around the room or garden. Children should then choose a bag, count how many objects are in it then find the number that will match the amount of objects and place it on the bag. Finally can the children order a mixed pack of number cards 0-20? Get the children to look away and turn over three numbers. Can the children identify which numbers have been turned? Can they explain their thinking using the following language (1 more than, 1 less than, is in between, comes before, comes after, is bigger than, is smaller than)? 

LITERACY:READING

Follow the link and listen to the story of Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose. What information do we find out by listening to the blurb? Who is the author and the illustrator of this book? What do you think will be special about this book? 

LITERACY: WRITING

Can you listen to the story again pausing each page and identify the rhyming words in the text? Can you create a list of the words that rhyme in the book?
