Wednesday 6th January
8:45 - 9:00 Handwriting Practise
Today's phonics sound is 'ee' so I would like you to practise writing this sound.
You need to try to write the 'ee' sound on the line whilst using lead ins and lead outs.
Please see the demonstration video and example below.
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 'ee' sound with the help of Green Froggy.
We will watch the power point 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 'ee' words using the flashcards below.
Then, I would like the children to practise their segmenting skills by spelling 'ee' words which their parent/carer says out loud.
For an extra challenge, I would like the children to write a sentence including at least one of the 'ee' words. Remember to use a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end.
If you have time, try to practise some off the high frequency words. See high frequency words flashcards below.
10:30 - 11:30 Writing
LO: To be able to describe action.
An action is something that someone does.
Walking, talking, cooking, smiling, playing and sleeping are all actions.
To be able to describe action we need to write about what a character is doing.
e.g. Paddington was waving. Paddington was waving and smiling. Paddington was happily waving and smiling.
Please see the page from Paddington Bear below.
Parents/carers should read the text whilst the children listen to what is happening and observe the illustrations.
Discuss what Paddington is doing on this page.
Please try to write more than one sentence describing Paddington's actions.
Remember to think about what you want to write and say it out loud first.
Remember to sound out (segment) words when you are spelling them.
Remember to write on the line; use finger spaces between words; use lead ins and lead outs; use capital letters at the beginning of a sentence and for Paddington's name and use full stops at the end of a sentence.
Extra challenge - Try to write about more than one action by using 'and' to join words/phrases.
Try to add detail by describing the objects that Paddington interacts with.
He climbed up onto the table to look at the snacks.
Paddington was touching the sticky buns.
The bear was eating the tasty treats.
Paddington jumped up to raise his hat.
He trod on a strawberry tart.
The bear skidded on the cream.
He fell over backwards.
11:30 - 12:15 Maths
LO: To be able to represent numbers 11 to 20.
Please watch the Maths input powerpoint below.
Choose a number between 11 and 20.
Write that number as a numeral and as a word. Then, draw pictures to show the amount.
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 example below.
If your child is finding this activity too difficult, try doing the same activity with numbers 1-10 instead.
Try to do the same activity using some numbers between 21 and 50.
Please look at the Maths plenary document below. Discuss the 'True or False' question.
13:15 - 14:15 RE
LO: To be able to explore the love and care shown in the family.
Discuss how a family loves and cares for each other.
Explain that having a special meal together is a wonderful way that a family can show their love and care for each other. A special meal allows family members to care for others by feeding them and making them happy. A special meal allows a family to spend time together and talk with each other.
