May is the month of Mary. In May we say the Hail Mary every day. Try this prayer together with your child.

Week 8

Phonics:

We have now covered all of Phase 3 phonics. It is important that the sounds your child has learnt become 'sticky' so we will follow the format below each day to retain what we have learnt:

Revisit/ReviseThrough quick fire oral recognition of digraphs/trigraphs and tricky words. Repeated practise makes knowledge sticky.
Practise
Using that sticky knowledge of digraphs/trigraphs to read/spell words through fun games.
Apply -  
Applying that sticky knowledge of digraphs/trigraphs to read and write sentences.

It is important your child completes all 3 parts of the activity. It shouldn't take more than 20 minutes.

New game today! Click the picture below to go to the youtube video. Towards the end one of the options is the digraph ea. Please tell this digraph to your child as they have not been taught it (Year 1, phase 5). Explain that some words with the ee sound are spelt with ee and others with ea. For example seen and leaf! Otherwise the video is a great game!

Friday 15th May:

Have a night time adventure as you do Friday PE with Andy!

PSED:

Think about the story of the Stick Man. Lots happens in the story but how does Stick Man feel through his journey.  Look at the image below and see if you can tell your adult a time when Stick Man is happy or sad...

Talk to your adult about a time when you have felt sad or happy. Can you say why? If you were sad or lonely how did your feelings change?

Maths: 

Let's start today by learning to count in 2s!

Yesterday we were learning to halve a number, which means splitting it in 2 equal groups. Try this ladybird activity sheet. If you haven't got a printer draw the ladybirds. Get the correct number of objects to help you.

For example: Get 2 pens and split them on to the 2 sides of a ladybird. Half of 2 is...

Maths: 13/05/2020

We'll start today by practising counting in 10s!

Yesterday we watched a video where the NUmberblocks had to Double. At the end the Numberblocks halved.

When we double we add a number by itself so Double 3 is 3+3 and the answer is 6.

When we halve a number we have to split the number into 2 equal groups, in half. So half of 6 is 3 and 3.

Today we are going to halve numbers, we are splitting them into two equal groups. Have a go at halving the Numberblocks on the worksheet below.

  • If you haven't got a printer, draw the Numberblock in your book.
  • Make sure you use the correct number of objects (sweets or raisins work well) and half them. Maybe try using two plates or take a piece of paper and cut it in half and let your child share the objects 1 by 1 to each half of paper.

Maths: 13/05/2020

Practise doubling numbers today.

Click on the Numberblock underneath to watch the episode 'Double Trouble' to find out more about doubling numbers! Watch very carefully at the end....we'll use our learning tomorrow!

Maths: 11/05/2020

Practise counting in steps of 1, 5 and 10!

This week let's look at all the numbers we have learnt so far...and learn the new number 17!

RE:

Last week we read the story 'The Jolly Postman' and thought about times where we had had good news. Have you had any good news this week?  

Now we're going to learn about a time when the Disciples (Jesus' friends) had some good news. Watch the youtube video below.

When we talk about the Holy Spirit we often talk about it being represented by the wind because the wind is something that is there but you can't see it or feel it although you can feel the effects of it. Use the template below and make a windmill to take outside. You don't need to print it out if you don't have a printer, you need a piece of square paper and cut as prompted. Attach it to a straw.

 

Once your windmill is complete see if you feel the effects of the wind on your windmill.

Topic:

The book this week i;s another one of my favourites - Stick Man by Julia Donaldson. I would suggest starting the topic off by watching the youtube video or reading the book if you have a copy. Again, in school I would read the story every day so that the children become familiar with the language and pattern of the story and can recite (most of it) by heart!

There are 16 activities to choose from and this week I have included some number activities which will link really nicely with the everyday learning in maths. I would still suggest completing 4 writing activities over the 2 weeks, starting with the smaller writes first. Have lots of fun, can't wait to see what you have all been up to!
