1. The Daily Five - Maths
Please complete lesson 5 week 1 of weight and measure (capactiy). 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
Think of as many adjectives (describing words) as possible to describe the image found under the resources section. Stick the image at the top of a new clean page and write the adjectives below. When you have thought of as mnay as you can, use them to write a describing sentence about the picture e.g. the sunny meadow has lots of colourful flowers.
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 the story of the bear hunt through movement. Cosmic kids is a brilliant youtube resource! 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. You can find examples of what I expect below under 'resources'.
5. The Daily Five - Phonics
Todays sound: /aw/
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 all sounds learnt so far using flashcards.
Teach: aw as in 'saw' (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 ue sound and write on w/b (saw, claw, fawn, drawetc). Play buried treasure, phase 5 (aw). Click on the link https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/ 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 (aw).
Apply: Parent read out this sentences: Do you stretch your jaw when you yawn? 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)
