Monday 30th 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.


Today please can your child complete the Second number bonds to 10 sheet in their resource pack. This should be called number bonds to ten ten-frame. 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

Today we will be looking at grammar. For this you will need the login details for 'espresso' which can be found on the passwords and login sheet provided in the home learning pack or see below. It will work best if you login first and then follow this link. I would save the login details as we will be using this site a lot over the weeks.


The link should take you straight to KS1 grammar an punctuation and today we will be looking at 'sentence' - combining words to make sentences - activity 1 and 2. The children will be ordering the words in a sentence so that it makes sense, something that we practice a lot in year 1. An alternative or an extensions to this could be for parents to write a sentence, cut up the words and the children can move the words around until the sentence makes sense.

3. The Daily Five - Outside Time/Be active

Let's get Messy!!!! (Sorry not sorry)


Miss Chapman loves to get messy and has a 'muddier the better' approach to playing outside. Today I would love for the children to complete a mud painting. I have done this lots of times before. All you need is mud, water, paper and a paint brush. Mix a little bit of water with some thick mud and begin painting! Please see the example below. 


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). As part of the seasonal changes unit we spend some time looking at the weather in different seasons. This week I would like the children to complete a weather diary. Everyday the children should go outside and complete the diary. Please find the diary sheet at the bottom of this page under 'todays resources'. If you have no access to a computer the children can use the sheet as a guide to record in work books. At the end of the week please complete a written summary in work book. This could be a sentence or longer. E.g. it has been mostly sunny this week. 


5. The Daily Five - Phonics

Todays sound: /oy/

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: Last weeks sounds using flashcards or parents to show written sounds.


Teach: oy as in 'boy' (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 (oy) sound and write on w/b boy, toy, enjoy. Play buried treasure, phase 5 (oy). 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 (oy). 


Apply: Parent read out this sentences: The boy plays with his toy. (You may need to repeat this a couple of times so they have time to listen to each word)
