This week we will be completing various Koo Koo Kanga Roo dance, movement and exercise routines. Each day choose a new routine and continue to practise the routines you have already learnt the day before so by Friday you should be up to 5 dances. This will enable you to get really good and develop your fluency in all of the different moves you will be completing. Follow the link below to access the dance, movement and exercise routines, have fun.
Now we will practise 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 "ay", followed by New: Set 2 Spelling with Rosie "ay" 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; The hen can lay an egg.
Writing Challenge: Now ask your child to write the sentence, I play in the day and sleep at night.
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; make, an. 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 10 to 100, showing 10 fingers as the count increases by 10 each time. Write numbers 0,10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90 and 100 on small pieces of paper and muddle them up. Can the children order the numerals in steps of 10? Turn a number in the sequence, which one is missing? Children can chant the numbers in steps of 10 from the beginning of the number line to help them work out the answer. Repeat a number of times. If I'm counting in 10's what number will I say after 60? (Children can chant and use the number line to help them). Repeat a number of times.
Gather sets of ten; such as a bundles of 10 straws, bundles of 10 lollipop sticks, bundles of 10 crayons or felt pens etc. Model counting in 1's to create each set of 10 so that children understand there are 10 objects in each set. Using the cards from the number line, shuffle the pack then turn a number. Count out the amount needed in quantities of 10. So if 50 was turned, count out as 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 as each bundle of 10 is put down. Repeat with the other numbers.
Outdoors; write the numbers 0,10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100 for children to jump on and shout out the number throughout the day, so that they develop fluency in counting to 100 in steps of 10. Once confident practice counting backwards from 100 to 0.
EXPRESSIVE ARTS AND DESIGN
Discuss some of the things you might pack in Grandma’s get well basket. What are some of the things they enjoy eating when they are poorly? What foods do they enjoy? Whilst treats are nice we mustn’t have too many but must ensure we eat healthily too. Have we included healthy choices for Grandma? Children to create their own food and basket that they would take to Grandma’s house. Maybe they will choose to use play dough, salt dough, paints, crayons or collage items. Maybe they will choose to do some baking. It is totally up to them to follow their own interests and imagination when completing the task. Have fun, this one might get a little messy!
Grandma may be too poorly to look through the basket so might prefer to read a list of the items in the basket. Can you write a list of foods that have been included in your basket? Use your phonic skills to help you write each of the words. Remember words will not be spelt accurately, grapes may be written as grayps, apples as apuls and raspberries as rasprees. This is great, just encourage your child to sound out unknown words. I look forward to seeing the completed lists.
