PE With Joe

9:30 - 10:00 Phonics Zoom with Mr Elks


I have sent the Zoom link to parents via email.


Today we will be exploring the 'ea' (silent a) sound with the help of the Silent Ghosts. 


We will watch the powerpoint together during the zoom meeting.


After the Zoom Meeting, please watch the video below.


I would like the children to practise their blending skills by reading 'ea' (silent a) words from the powerpoint.


Then, I would like the children to practise their segmenting skills by spelling 'ea' (silent a) words which their parent/carer says out loud. 


Extra Challenge:

Write sentences including at least one of the 'ea' (silent a) words. Remember to use a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end. 



Practise your alphabet by singing and dancing along to the ‘Alphabet Song’. Then, watch the alpha blocks video about letters A to Z. See video and link below.

10:30 - 11:30 Writing


LO: To be able to write instructions.


See the pages from Paddington Bear below. 


Parents/carers should read the text whilst the children listen and explore the illustrations. 


Discuss what Paddington is doing.


Explain that we will be writing instructions about how to take a bath like Paddington.


Instructions are a list of commands that tell you how to do something. 


To write commands you need to use imperatives (e.g. fill, add, write, draw, jump, splash, call and bail).


You can sequence commands (write them in order) using fronted adverbials (e.g. firstly, secondly, then, next, afterwards, and finally)


Key skills:

  • Think about what you want to write and say it out loud first. 
  • Sound out (segment) words when you are spelling them.
  • Write on the line.
  • Use finger spaces between words.
  • Use lead ins and lead outs. 
  • Use capital letters at the beginning of a sentence.
  • Use full stops at the end of a sentence.



Draw and label pictures to represent the instructions instead of writing full sentences.  


Extra challenge:

Try to use adjectives/adverbs to add detail to your instructions (e.g. steamy, creamy, slowly, deep, loudly, quickly and old).

Try to use joining words (e.g. and/then) to join two commands together.



Firstly, fill the bath then add lots of bubble bath.

Secondly, write your name in the steamy mirror.

Thirdly, spray creamy shaving foam all over the floor.

Then, slowly draw a map of Peru in the foam.

Next, jump and splash into the deep bath.

Afterwards, you must forget to turn off the taps then loudly shout for help.

Finally, try to quickly bail out the water using your old hat until someone helps you.

11:30 - 12:15 Maths


LO: To be able to represent Tens and Ones (continued).


Please watch the Maths input powerpoint below. You can also watch the Numberblock video below to reinforce understanding of Tens and Ones.


Choose a number between 11 and 20.


Split the number into its Tens and Ones and represent this by using objects and drawings.


Make sure you are identifying the Tens and Ones. You could do this by writing a statement (see examples below).


Do this again with other numbers between 11 and 20. You can do each number in order from 11 to 20 or go backwards from 20 to 11.


Please see examples below.



Use objects to represent the Tens and Ones of a number between 11 and 20. Verbally explain how you have represented the Tens and Ones. 


Extra challenge:

Please see ‘Extra Challenge Examples’ below. Write Tens and Ones statements in different ways. Use language of ‘equal to’ and try to write some numbers as words. 



Please look at the Maths plenary document below. Discuss the 'True or False' question.
