Tuesday 28th April

1. The Daily Five - Maths

Today, can the children again spend 10 minutes practising finding one more and one less from any given number to 100. If you think your child might struggle with this too 100 they can do it with numbers to 50. You will need to provide your child with a selection of numbers to 100 using number cards or just ripped up pieces of paper with numbers on. Place these in the middle and ask your child to select a number. In their work books could they please record the number that was picked, the number before and the number after. 


Then please complete lesson 1 of Summer Term 1 week 2 (w/c 27th April) Find a half (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.


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.


2. The Daily Five - Literacy

Following on from our project focus of the three little pigs last week, over the next couple of weeks we will be focusing on this story in Literacy as I love how it fits well with our houses and homes topic. I have recorded a video of myself reading the story and this video will come in handy with the writing tasks this week. 


On class dojo, watch the video of Miss Chapman read the story of the three little pigs. When you have done this, in your work book, draw a picture of the big bad wolf. Underneath write a sentence that describes the big bad wolf. E.g. The big bad wolf has a long bushy tail and wide angry eyes. 

Remember your capital letters and full stops!!


3. The Daily Five - Outside Time/Be Active

Have a go at making a paper boat together following the instructions under 'today's resources'. When you have done this, have a race in the padding pool. What can you do to make your boat go the fastest? Blow, wave a book etc. 


4. The Daily Five - Project

Following on from yesterday, I would like the children to consider their own house. Look at it from the outside, what kind of house is it? When you have established what kind of house it is, either take a photo of yourself standing out the front of your house or draw a picture of it. I would like everyone to share themselves and their houses on class dojo, with a little summary of their house e.g. 'This is me and my house. My house is a bungalow and it has 4 bedrooms and a garden'. I will upload an example of me and my house as a guide. I feel like this is a great opportunity for the children to see each other, all be it through photographs!


I have created an activity on class dojo, we are all new to this so if you cannot find the activity to submit the work on, just add it to your child's portfolio or find any way you can! 


5. The Daily Five - Phonics

Todays sound: /e-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:  e-e as in 'delete' (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 (e-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 e-e sound and write on w/b (delete, these, theme, pete). 


Apply: Parent read out this sentences: I complete my work and then I delete it. 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)
