Tuesday 12th May

1. The Daily Five - Maths

Today, can the children spend 10 minutes practising counting backwards from any given number to 50. If your child can do this easily, do numbers to 100. Just like with the finding one more and one less task, ripped up bits of paper with numbers on will be fine for this. The children don't need to go from 46 down to 0. Count back 5 numbers e.g. 46, 45, 44, 43, 42, 41.


After this, can they please spend 20 minutes on their Numbots accounts. Their logins can be found in their blue home school diaries on the very first page.


Then, please complete today's WRMH lesson and the math's worksheet provided (add by making 10). We are still following the WRMH scheme but they have stopped providing free resources. We have decided to take advantage of the premium subscription so we will be continuing the programme. This means that the way you access it will change. The videos will still be on the website in the exact same page but I will upload the worksheet you need each day on to 'today's resources'.


2. The Daily Five - Literacy

Please take a look at my newspaper article I have written for the children, THE WOLF HAS BEEN CAUGHT! When you have done this, watch the video of me reading the True story of the three little pigs on class dojo (if the book has been delivered in time, if not please read the story to your child by following this link)


This week we are going to be focusing on letter writing based on the true story of the three little pigs. They will be writing an apology letter to the last little pig from wolf with his excuses from story. E.g. I am sorry I destroyed all of your houses and ate your brothers, all I wanted was a cup of sugar.


We will follow this learning structure (very similar to last week) 

  1. Look at letter examples
  2. Plan letter
  3. Write letter


Today, please look at examples of letters and discuss and highlight their features, address, date etc (please see features on example provided and letter writing powerpoint). 


3. The Daily Five - Outside Time/Be Active

Use a bucket or a big bowl - throw the ball into the bucket. How many times can you get it in? Post your achievement onto class dojo! 


4. The Daily Five - Project

Houses around the world (Geography)

Houses differ around the world, mainly due to the countries climate and resources. Use the resources included and the internet (with help from an adult) to learn about different houses in the given countries. 

Over the week choose 2 countries/house types out of the following:

Kenya (Inkajijik)

Switzerland (Chalets)

New Guinea (Tree houses)

Greenland/Canada (Igloos)

Australia (Bungalows/Air-conditioning/Solar panels)

  • Locate the country on a map of the world.
  • Research online (with an adult) the types of houses they have in that country.
  • Make something to present on class dojo to Miss Chapman e.g. a labelled poster, power point, video or a written summary telling me about the houses you have researched.
  • Consider: Do all houses have different rooms like ours? Do they have kitchens? How do they cook food in their house? Can they wash in this house? 
  • Consider making reference too how your chosen countries house differs from our houses and why (different weather, different materials).


5. The Daily Five - Phonics

Remembering the 'ir' sound. 


Look at these 'ir' words - choose a word and write a sentence containing this word. Remember your capital letters and full stops. Do this 3 times. 








Challenge: write a sentence containing 2 of the words! 

Then play buried treasure with (ir).
