Thursday 30th April

1. The Daily Five - Maths

Please complete lesson 3 of Summer Term 1 week 2 (wc 27th April) find a quarter (2). 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.


This will be a difficult concept for children, I would really encourage the use of objects when finding a quarter (making 4 equal groups). This can be anything you have a lot of, even lego bricks!


2. The Daily Five - Literacy

Following on from yesterdays task and based on my 'what happens next' prediction. I would like the children to create a wanted poster for the big bad wolf. Find some example under 'today's resources'. There is no set template I would like the children to follow, but I would like a 'WANTED' title that needs to be big and bold, a picture of the wolf, a description of the wolf and a sentence about the crimes he has commited E.g. Wanted for destroying property and bullying the three little pigs. 


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 - this week spider man! 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

Complete junk modelling version of own house. 


5. The Daily Five - Phonics

Todays sound: /o-e/ 

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:  o-e as in 'bone' (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 (o-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 o-e sound and write on w/b (bone, phone, hope, cone). 


Apply: Parent read out this sentences: If you are home alone and you find a bone, will you get on the phone? 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)
