Continue to practise 'Dinosaur Stomp' and the other movement sessions you chose earlier in the week. It is important to be having fun whilst you exercise and following your own interests will help with this. Practising the same workout will help you develop fluency in all of the different movements. 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 "oo", followed by New: Set 2 Spelling with Rosie "oo" 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 sit on the chair and look at my book.
Writing Challenge: Now ask your child to write the sentence, I look in the book and then I cook the food.
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. This week please practise the following words; their, were, do, I, they, the, old, was. Can you now read these words at speed?
Look at and discuss the following coins, 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1.00 and £2.00 coins. Discuss the shape, colour, patterns and symbols on each side. Sort a selection of coins by value, naming the coins as you are sorting them. Place the coins in value the smallest at one end; 1p and the biggest amount at the other end of the line; £2.00.
Draw outlines of purses and in the first purse place a 2p, in the second purse place 2p and 1p, in the third purse place 2p and 2p in the fourth purse place 5p and 1p etc. Ask the children how much money is in the purse? How many 1p coins would they need to make the same value. Make the value with the 1p coins. Lay the amounts next to the equivalent amounts so children can visually see that there are different ways of making the same amounts.
Can you write a postcard to the Worrysaurus and tell him why he shouldn't worry? Can you use the word 'because' in your sentence to explain why you think the Worrysaurus does not need to worry? Perhaps on the front of the postcard you could draw a picture showing the Worrysaurus the reason he should not be worried? Keep your postcard to remind you that we all have worries but we can find ways to help us cope with our worries.
