Friday 1st May

1. The Daily Five - Maths

Please complete lesson 4 of Summer Term 1 week 2 (wc 27th April) problem solving. On this website you will find a video tutorial, a worksheet and the answers. Let the children watch the video, then they can either complete the worksheet independently if you are able to print it off, or in discussion with an adult talking through the answers when viewing on the screen.


2. The Daily Five - Literacy

Today, I would like the children to write a recount of their week and the things they have done. The children have written many recounts before. They are encouraged to include time words (e.g. first, then, next) and write in the past tense (I went), please see an example recount under the resources section. 


When they have finished they can draw a picture showing what they have done. 


3. The Daily Five - Outside Time/Be Active

Collect as many daisy's as you can from your garden. Count how many you have in total, then find a quarter by splitting into 4 equal groups (make sure they have an amount that will allow them to do this e.g. 48). 


4. The Daily Five - Project

Complete junk model version of own house. 


5. The Daily Five - Phonics

Todays sound: /u-e /    



Revisit: Revisit all sounds learnt so far using flashcards.  


Teach:  u-e as in 'cube/flute' (using Mr Thorne Phonics video, this will give you a clear pronunciation of the sound - see resources below for link). Write the digraph in air and on table with finger. 


Practice: Play buried treasure, phase 5 (u-e). Click on the link Login using the details given (found in the home resource pack). Then click on 'resources' and then buried treasure should be the first option. Wave your mouse over the picture and it should let you click on a phase, select phase 5 and follow the steps through until you can choose your sound. Together discuss words that contain the u-e sound and write on w/b (cube, tube, rude, flute). 


Apply: Parent read out this sentences: Can you put a huge cube in a tube? Children to write in exercise books. (You may need to repeat this a couple of times so they have time to listen to each word)
