Friday 27th March

Normally a PE day with Coach Rob so why not replace him with Andy for a wild workout!  Click here to go on an adventure Under the Sea.

At this very worrying and unprecedented time where your child is not in their normal routine and may be missing school and their friends, spend some time together talking about the world around them as it is.  Together, make some worry dolls following the instructions below.

 

Maths: (26/03/2020)

Give your child a set of number cards from 0-11 (these can be 12 small pieces of paper with the number written on.)  Ask your child to put the numbers into the correct order from 0 - 11.

Use the shape mat below to look at 3D shapes.  We have learnt cone/cuboid/cube/cylinder/sphere. Send your child off on a shape hunt, possibly in the kitchen. Ask them to find real objects and see if they can name the 3D shape. Can they also name the properties (number of corners/vertices, edges. faces?)

Don't forget to upload pictures to tapestry of what they find!

Maths: 25/03/2020

Practice writing numbers 1-11 using the number formation patters in your pack.

Take 2 plates from the kitchen and those 11 pennies from yesterday. Split the pennies between the two plates and count how many are on each then say "4 add 7 equals 11." Keep doing this to find as many combinations. Can you record each one in your purple book:

oooo + ooooooo = 11    OR     iiii + iiiiiii = 11    OR    4+7 +11

Maths: (24/03/2020)

Practice counting in tens today. Watch this video on you tube to help. Click here. Post your groovy dance moves and singing on Tapestry!

Next show your child the picture mat below, or real coins would be better if you have them to hand!

 

Ask your child if they know what each coin is (they don't need to know it, it's just good practice to become familiar!) Make sure your child says either p or pence/pound...not dollar! Once your child is a little more familiar with the coins you can refer back to yesterdays number (11). Can they recognise the number. Ask your child to count out 11 (real) pennies if you have them, if not, circles of paper coloured in would work.  Remind your child that we learnt yesterday that 11 is the same as 10 and 1 more.

Can they use real coins to make 11p? Can they get a 10p and 1p? That makes 11.

Throughout the day when your child asks for a snack from the kitchen show them a price list (with prices up to 11p) and ask them to count out the correct coins to pay for their food. If you don't have any coins, they could draw the coins they would use to pay for their snack!  

CHALLENGE...  If your child can count out the total cost of the snack in pennies up to 11p write a new list tomorrow in multiples of ten (e.g. 40p) and have them count out in 10p coins (just like we counted at the start of the maths lesson on you tube!

Maths: (23/03/2020)

Take an object (such as a small ball, a teddy or a shell) and pass it between you and your child. As the ball is passed you each say the next number, counting from 1-20 and backwards. If they are fab at this start on a number between 1 and 20 e.g. 7, 8, 9, 10...

Watch the Number blocks video (click the picture)

Now practice writing the number 11.

Find 11 objects from around the house and make them into a pile of 10 plus 1 more equals 11. What different things can you find?

Ask: "What is 1 more than 11? Find it with the objects and practice counting. What is 1 less than 11?" Again, find and count.

Some of our distanced learning this week

 

Topic: (26/03/2020)

 Let's get Creative!!!!

 

 Show me your Supertato and your Supertato home on Tapestry! If you haven't got any building bricks maybe you could use some junk modelling from your 3D shape hunt in the kitchen earlier!

 

 

Topic: (25/03/2020)

Share the story Supertato with your child again. The link to it on Youtube is here or if you have the book you could read it together. 

 

Write a sentence about the story at the front of the purple book. Encourage your child to sound out the words independently using the phase 2/phase 3 phonics mat in your pack to help. It doesn't matter if the words are spelt wrong as long as your child has tried hard and used their phonics!

Topic: (24/03/2020)

Following our topic of Superheroes, share the story Supertato with your child. The link to it on Youtube is here or if you have the book you could read it together.

If you have an Ipad or an Iphone download the free app Superhero Comic Maker. Ask your child to retell the Supertato story on the app choosing a setting and the characters. Record the story as it is retold using the function in the app.

If you don't have an Ipad or Iphone can your child use some Superhero toys or draw their own characters to retell the story? Videos of your child's story can be uploaded to Tapestry.  Have fun!

Topic: (23/03/2020)

In February the children looked carefully at the plants growing in the tyres. They then drew them, trying to use the correct colour. I promised we would look at them again in March and as time is ticking I thought we could do that now.  Here is the before picture:

 

 

This is the plant now!

 

 

Ask your child to talk about the changes they can see. Use the word daffodil. Ask your child to draw a picture of the daffodil in their purple book. Encourage them to use the correct colours. Can they write a sentence about the changes they can see? Upload the work to Tapestry.
