Monday 23rd March

Good morning from Miss Chapman! Here are today's Daily Five:


1. The Daily Five - Maths

In maths every Monday we focus on learning and consolidating our number bonds. I would like this to continue every Monday over the school closures. This will require you to use 1 or 2 (I will say on the day) of the number bonds sheets provided in the home learning pack so please don't use these at any other times. Today please can your child complete the first number bonds to 10 sheet in their resource pack. This should be called 'part-whole number bonds to 10. Could they then follow this by listing the number bonds to 10 on their sheet as a number sentence on the whiteboards e.g. 1+9=10, 2+8=10 etc. 



2. The Daily Five - Literacy

In school this term we have been learning about traditional tales. Today, please begin thinking about and writing a traditional tale story based on one image that can be found in the home learning pack that was sent home on Thursday (this can also be found online). Please complete this the work book provided. In school we write in short bursts, this does not need to be finished in one day. Tomorrow's Literacy task is to finish this story. 



3. The Daily Five - Outside Time

Go outside and think about the different trees you might have outdoors in your garden or local area. Are they deciduous (a tree that changes through the seasons) or evergreen (a tree that keeps its leaves all year round). This link will give some extra information to the children about deciduous and evergreen trees although we have learnt it before



4. The Daily Five - Project

(Plants and the seasons)


In science this half term we have been studying two science units, seasonal changes and plants (in forest school). Over the course of this week I would like the children to think about how trees change over the seasons and create some art work each day to show a tree in the summer, autumn, winter and spring. You can find examples of what I expect below under 'resources'. 


5. The Daily Five - Phonics

Todays sound: 'ay' 

Below is the structure in which we teach phonics through the letter and sounds scheme. I will guide you through each step daily to keep it as consistant as possible for the children. We begin each session with a review of previous sounds learnt usually using sound cards. You could make your own sound cards by cutting up large squares of cards, and as you learn a new sound write the digraph onto it and keep for the revisit stages. We then teach our new sound, practice it in the context of words containing that sound and then apply it to dictating sentences.   


Revisit: Make sound card for ay 


Teach: ay 'as in -day' (using Mr Thorne Phonics video, this will give you a clear pronunciation of the sound - see resources below for link)


Practice: together discuss words that contain the ay sound and write on w/b (pay, day, say, play, pray). Play buried treasure, phase 5 (ay). Click on the link Login using the details given (found in the home resource pack). The 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 souns (ay). 


Apply: Parent read out this sentences: In the day I like to play children to write on whiteboards. (You may need to repeat this a couple of times so they have time to listen to each word)
