Wednesday 25th March

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


1. The Daily Five - Maths

Please complete lesson 1 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

Choose a different picture from the home learning pack. Write a story based around this picture. Please encourage the children to think of a new story starter, describe the setting and the new character. Think of a problem for the middle of the story and a resolution to the problem for the end. Please also remind them to write using their neatest handwriting, use capital letters and full stops and finger spaces. 



3. The Daily Five - Outside Time/Be Active

It is important that all children have at least 1 hour of exercise every day and our resident PE Mr Coggins has been provding daily PE sessions. Please can your child watch this and join in with him!



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: /ie/ 

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 and ou - discuss what words contain the ay and ou sounds.  


Teach: ie is in 'tie' (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 (tie, lie, cried, tried,dries, flies, pie etc). Play buried treasure, phase 5 (ie). 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 (ie). 


Apply: Parent read out this sentences: I tried to do my tie after my pie. 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)
