Thursday 26th March

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


1. The Daily Five - Maths

Please complete lesson 2 of weight and measure. 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

Finish your second story. Please remind children to use capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and neat handwriting. Please see examples of neat handwriting on the 'resources you will need everyday' at the bottom of our home learning page. Also available for you to use is our letter formation guidance. As of next week we will have a handwriting practice focus one day a week. 



3. The Daily Five - Outside Time/ Be Active 

It is important that all children have at least 1 hour of exercise every day. Today I would like the children to do some relaxing yoga, telling stories through movement. Cosmic kids is a brilliant youtube resources! Do this as much as possible over the school closures, everyday if you can, there are plenty of different sessions available. The children really enjoy it and it can calm their busy minds!  



4. The Daily Five - Project

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. 



5. The Daily Five - Phonics

New Sound: /ea/ 

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: Revisit ay, ou and ie - ask child to give 1 example of a word containing that sound. 


Teach: ea as in 'bead' (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: together discuss words that contain the ie sound and write on w/b (pea, tea, bean, clean, leaf, cream etc). Play buried treasure, phase 5 (ea). 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 (ea). 


Apply: Parent read out this sentences: I had a pea and a bean for my tea. 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)
