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

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 chalks?  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; l, t, i, u, j, y. 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, look at the book). 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; b oo k, then say the word in full; book. Now ask your child to apply the sound of the day into reading a sentence; I look at my book with my mum.

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 book? 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 can cook 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. 

Then using chalks, water and a paint brush, felt pens or coloured crayons practise forming the numbers 0-9. Observe and inform their formation as necessary. It is important they start and finish the number in the correct place and have the correct action when forming each number. After the numbers have been practised roll a spotty die and then extend to two dice. Can children identify the number of dots rolled then write the correct number?


Listen to the story of Goldilocks and the Three bears. After you have listened to the story discuss the character Goldilocks and talk about her appearance, such as her curly, golden hair, her red hair clip, her pink rosy cheeks, her long sleeved, yellow cardigan, her green skirt with red, yellow and white flowers on and her long pink boots. 

Then draw a picture of Goldilocks, including as many of the features that you have discussed as you can. Refer back to the illustrations to help you. Save your work for tomorrow's writing task.
