This week we will be completing various dance, movement, exercise, fitness and yoga routines. Each day we will practice a routine to support our understanding of the Little Red Riding Hood story. Some days we will repeat a session already completed to enable the children to get really good and develop their fluency in all of the different moves they will be completing. Follow the link below to access the dance, movement and exercise routines for today, have fun.

Now we will practice 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 l, t, i, u, j, y. Remember to form each letter accurately. Refer to the handwriting ditty sheet to help you. 


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 "or", followed by New: Set 2 Spelling with Rosie "or" 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; I like to press the horn in my car; beep, beep. 


Writing Challenge: Now ask your child to write the sentence, I play with my torch when it is dark. 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. 


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! 

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; too, by, day, made, time, I'm, if. They can be written on paper and added to your word wallet. If children are still learning previous sets of words, continue to practise the other words then introduce this set as and when they are ready.


Count in steps of 5 to 50, showing 5 fingers on alternate hands as the count increases by 5 each time. As counting refer to the 100 square, what do they notice? (When they get as far as two digit numbers the tens digit order is 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4, and the ones digit alternates between 0 and 5).

Write numbers 0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50 on small pieces of paper and muddle them up. Can the children order the numerals in steps of 5, using the 100 square to help them? Turn a number in the sequence, which one is missing? Children can chant the numbers in steps of 5 from the beginning of the number line to help them work out the answer. Repeat a number of times. If I'm counting in 5's what number will I say after 40? (Children can chant, use the number line or 100 square to help them). Repeat a number of times.

Play shops; each item costs 5p. If I buy three things how much will it cost?  Choose 3 items, children to count in steps of 5 to count the amount touching each set as they chant, 5,10,15. It would cost 15 pence altogether. Repeat a number of times.

Outdoors; write the numbers 5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50 for children to jump on and shout out the number throughout the day, so that they develop fluency in counting to 50 in steps of 5. 


Listen to the story of Little Red Riding Hood (follow the link below).  After you have listened to the story discuss the physical appearance of The Wolf when he is dressed in Grandmother's pink night dress and night cap, (video clip timing; 4:21). Talk about his appearance, such as his grey and black hairy fur, his sharp teeth and claws, his big eyes and ears, his pink night dress and night cap and his black, wet nose. Then draw a picture of the Wolf, 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.
