Wednesday 1st April

Good morning! Here are a few fun ideas for today plus don't forget to use the  Twinkl and White Rose Maths websites if you want extra ideas.

  • Play a game - pick one of your favourite games or you could make your own: number bond pairs (make cards with numbers up to 10 and then 20 on for you to pair up to make the two numbers), Simon Says (who will follow the instructions best?), Guess my number (pick a number up to 50 and see if anyone can guess what your number is by asking questions: 'is it bigger than...', 'is it smaller than...', 'what number is one more than your number...', 'what number is one less than your number..')Guess my shape (who can guess the shape you have spotted around home?).
  • Tell a story - this could be reading a story to your family or you could create your own story. Use voices and actions to make your story more entertaining!
  • Get creative - can you draw a spring picture? If you look outside you will see that lots of flowers are blooming and the trees are looking more colourful.

Friday 27th March

Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a good week. Here are some ideas for today...

Maths

Yesterday I asked you to think about all the different ways that you could think of to make 10. Today I would like you to think about making 20 - do the same as you did yesterday, add two numbers together or use subtraction and challenge your family to see how many you can all find!  I have included a couple of activities for you to do if you want to extend this further.

English

As it is the end of the week, one idea for you to do today could be to write a diary entry for the week. Write about the different things you have done, games you have played or even tv shows you have watched! If you save these diaries you can show them to me when we go back to school! It will be fun for me to know what you have been doing!

Phonics

This week we have looked at 4 different sounds: aw, are, air, eer.

1. Write the trigraphs 'air', 'are', 'eer' and the digraph 'aw'.

2. Ask an adult to write stairs, share, deer and saw for you - now have a go reading the words and also dot and dash them, putting them under the correct digraph or trigraph.

3. Think of a sentence with the words fair and cheer in - either write this or say it.

4. Our tricky words for this week are: they, said and where. Try reading them and spelling them. Now that you have been looking at these all week, can you get an adult to test you and see how well you know them?

Thursday 26th March

Good morning! Here are some ideas for today...

Maths

Today I thought we could think about number facts. How many ways can you find to make 10? You can add two numbers together or you could subtract. Maybe you could challenge your family to see how many different ways you can find! You could also make a pairs game with two different numbers that make 10 for you to match together.

English

Today I thought it might be good to do some handwriting. Focus on the letter n - I have included a worksheet to get you started. Think carefully about how you are writing the letter, start in the correct place (see the worksheet for help). Then write some words that begin with n - all the time making sure you are writing it correctly.

Phonics

Today we are going to focus on the sound 'air' - this makes an /air/ sound in words like hair, fair, pair.

1. Write the trigraph 'air'.

2. Ask an adult to write fair, hair, stairs for you - now have a go reading the words and also dot and dash them.

3. Think of a sentence with the word stairs in - either write this or say it.

4. Our tricky words for this week are: they, said and where. Try reading them and spelling them.

Extra ideas:

If you have puzzles at home, today could be a day to see if you can complete one of them. You could also play a game with your family - you could even play Simon Says and see who is the best!

Wednesday 25th March

Good morning everyone! Here are some ideas for you to try today...

Maths

Today we are going to be thinking about addition and subtraction.

Remember that when we add (+) the number is getting bigger. You might count on from the first number, use objects to count all of them together, or you could make your own number line or simple ten frame. When we subtract (-) the number will get smaller. You could count back, take objects away or use your own number line or ten frame.

Under this block is a snakes and ladders game for you to try - it even has a dice you can make! If you can't print anything off, why not ask an adult to give you 2 random numbers for you to first add together, then subtract. They can then check you answers for you!

English

Retelling a story that you know really well. This could be a story we have read in class such as 'The snail and the whale', 'The three billy goats gruff', 'Pattan's Pumpkin' or 'Goldilocks and the three bears'. It could also be story you know well that you have at home. When you retell the story remember to include the beginning, the middle and then the end of the story.

Phonics

Today we are going to focus on the sound 'are' - this makes an /air/ sound in words like scare, hare, care.

1. Write the trigraph 'are'.

2. Ask an adult to write care, glare, square for you - now have a go reading the words and also dot and dash them.

3. Think of a sentence with the word square in - either write this or say it.

4. Our tricky words for this week are: they, said and where. Try reading them and spelling them.

RE

Wednesday is usually our day for RE so I thought today we could think a little bit about Easter. In class we started to look at Holy Week which is the week before Easter. A simple activity that you could try at home is to draw an Easter egg (or get an adult to help you) and decorate it as colourfully as you can. 

Tuesday 24th March

Good morning everyone! Hope you are all keeping well and safe! Here are some ideas for you to do today......

Maths

Work through the capacity worksheet  (you should find it under this) - if you can't print it off then write the answers down and get an adult to check for you. If you can't look at the worksheet for some reason - draw bottles or cups with the following amounts of water in them.... full, half full and nearly full. 

English

Tell a story. Can you make up your own story? Use any toys you have and create a story - have some key characters and then think of a problem they might face and what will happen. Will they go on an adventure together? Will they travel the world? Will they find a magic key? You can draw a simple story map to remember your story so that you can tell it again - and if you want more challenge, write the story. Maybe you can write a collection of stories over the coming weeks!

Phonics

Today we are going to focus on the sound eer - this makes an 'eer' sound in words like deer, sheer, cheer.

1. Write the trigraph 'eer'.

2. Ask an adult to write cheer, deer, sneer for you - now have a go reading the words and also dot and dash them.

3. Think of a sentence with the word deer in - either write this or say it.

4. Our tricky words for this week are: they, said and where. Try reading them and spelling them.

Art

Look outside and pick a tree or flower that you think is nice. Think about the colours you can see and if the wind is blowing any movement such as the leaves blowing in the wind. It is a lovely sunny day so maybe the sun is causing a shadow. Have fun with what you do.

 

Monday 23rd March

Capacity - this is something you can do at the kitchen sink or in the bath! 

Can you fill a cup or plastic bowl so that it is full?

Can you fill a cup or plastic bowl so that it is half full?

How many small cups will it take to fill a larger cup, jug or bowl?

Extension: find a measuring jug - look at the lines on the side with an adult. Can you measure 100ml? look at how the water needs to be as close to the measurement as it can. 

Can you measure 200ml?

Writing information on animals:

In class we were beginning to look at lions and writing about what we know and then finding out some extra information from books and the internet. 
Can you write about an animal you know well? Maybe you have a pet or have a favourite animal?

Draw a picture of your animal.

Write some simple sentences to give some information about it.

Share it with your family - maybe they can learn something new from you!
