Using a large ball can you practise your throwing and catching skills. How many times can you catch the ball before you drop it? Can you throw and catch the ball with a partner too? Can you throw the ball against a wall and catch it?
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 ou (as in, shout it out). Using the green phonics folder, practise the ou sound. The sound is made up of two letters but makes one sound, which is ou. Then practise reading the ou words. Firstly encourage your child to identify the special friend in the word, (in this case ou) then Fred talk the word; s ou n d, then say the word in full; sound. Now ask your child to apply the sound of the day into reading a sentence; I tap and bang to get a sound.
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 round? Four sounds, hold up four 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 run round and round the bench. 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; it's, see, looked, very, look, don't, come. They can be written on paper and added to your word wallet.
MATHEMATICS: SHAPE, SPACE AND MEASURES.
Today we are learning to explore characteristics of everyday objects and 3D shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
Watch the video clips on the links below to further develop your knowledge of the 3D shapes and the different language you can use to describe them. Remember what you learn as you will need this language when describing your shapes later on.
So, can you name some 3D shapes (sphere, cuboid, cone, cube, cylinder)? Remember what you learnt on the video clips and use this language when discussing your shapes.
Put one of each 3D shape into a bag, describe the shape but don't name it, can the other people playing guess the shape you are describing? All have a turn so you learn to use the language to describe each shape and learn to listen to the language and work out (reason) which shape is being described.
This week we are focusing on the following 3D shapes; sphere, cuboid, cone, cube, cylinder and using language such as; side, edges, end, corner, vertices, flat, solid, round, curved, straight, face, surface, etc. to describe them.
EXPRESSIVE ARTS AND DESIGN
Can you remember the song 'When Goldilocks went to the house of the bears'? I've included a link to the song to help you remember. We usually sing it slower than this version and add some actions too. If you can't remember them make up some of your own.
