Practice speedy green words at the back of the book with your child.

Repeat for sounds, story green words and red words (page 4,5,6,7). N.B just read each red word and get your child to copy, you do not need to sound them out.  Your child should now be becoming more confident as they have been practicing the same words for a number of days - they may just be able to read the words without sounding them out. This is great as it is developing their fluency! Get your child to read the whole book to you! 

Then.... 

Turn to the back cover of the story book - Questions to talk about. Give children the page number and give them time to find the page then ask them the questions.

Topic activities (W.B 1.6.20)

 

Music Task Using pots, pans and baking trays from the kitchen lay out your own ‘drum kit’. Allow your child to explore by banging and tapping the pans to see the different sounds they make. Extend this activity by tapping out a rhythm and asking your child to listen to it then repeat it. You could make this more difficult by adding in a blindfold so they have to rely on the sound to identify which pot or pan they need to hit to copy.

 

The change that Covid-19 has caused to our lives has been difficult and has provided countless challenges. For many children, the uncertainty and disruption to everyday life has caused worry and anxiety. These tasks are designed to help children process the current situation, begin to make sense of it and plan for returning to a different normal.

 

Think

  • Ask your child to think about how they are feeling about returning to being at school, whenever that may be! Can they list two or three feelings? Explain to your child that it is okay to feel like this and many children across the world are most likely feeling the same. Your child could draw a heart or a rainbow for other children and list kind words for them.

Talk

  • Does your child have any questions about what school will be like when they eventually return?  Discuss the changes that will be in place when they return e.g. more handwashing, how to social distance, etc. Then talk about all of the things that will remain the same e.g. wearing the same uniform etc. 

Do

  • The thought of returning to school will fill many children with a mixture of excitement and apprehension. Why not make a positivity box? Your child could add items to this box that make them feel safe and provide comfort. When they are feeling apprehensive, they could choose an item from the box to hold and think about a time when they felt calm.

Weekly Topic work (W.B 27th April 2020)

The topic  this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about their home! 

 

  • The rooms in my house-
    • Support your child to create a map  of their home. Can they name all of the rooms? An adult could hide an object in a room and mark where it is on the child’s map. Can they use their map to find the hidden object? Label each room using phonics knowledge.
    • Gather an object from each room and challenge your child to return them to the appropriate room e.g. toothbrush from the bathroom, teddy from their bedroom.
    • Hide objects around the room and describe where it is e.g. “it’s under something red” Can your child hide an object and describe where it is for you to find?
  • Go on a numeral hunt-
    • Search for numerals around the house (clocks, books, house numbers, car registrations, oven, washing machine). Can they record the numerals on paper?
  • Find your house on google maps- (Children LOVE doing this at school!)
    • Explore using google maps to look at your house from above and on street view. Use the arrows to move up and down the road and around your area. Can they find key places e.g. the corner shop, their school, grandparents houses.
    • Search for a house in a different part of the world and discuss how it is similar or different to your own. You could use places children have visited on holiday or search places that are significantly different.
  • Junk model your house-
    • Using old packaging (shoe box, cereal box etc.) support your child to make a model of your house. Can they count how many windows there are and stick on the right amount? Can they write their house number on the front?
    • Junk model your dream house. Use materials from around your house to decorate e.g. old wallpaper, fabric, wool.
  • Use construction blocks to build your house-
    • Using lego, duplo, wooden blocks make a model of your house. Can they add in the rooms and doors in the right places? Write labels to match each room on pieces of paper.
    • Build your dream house out of construction blocks.
  • Create a furniture collage-
    • Using old magazines and catalogues support your child to cut out and stick or sort objects into the room they would belong in. Support your child to use correct scissor grip. 
  • Exploring with your senses-
    • Gather a collection of household objects e.g. fork, cup, toothbrush, teddy bear, book and show your child. Use a scarf/ material as a blindfold and pass your child one of the objects. Can they figure out what it is through touch alone? Give clues if they are struggling. Swap roles and ask your child to give you an object to figure out.
    • Explore the textures around your house. Can children find something rough, smooth, bumpy.They could take a wax rubbing of each texture (Lay a piece of paper over the top and rub over with the side of a crayon). You could continue this into the garden.

Repeat for sounds, story green words and red words (page 4,5,6,7). N.B just read each red word and get your child to copy, you do not need to sound them out.  Your child should now be becoming more confident as they have been practicing the same words for a number of days - they may just be able to read the words without sounding them out. This is great as it is developing their fluency! Get your child to read the whole book to you! 

 

If your child is not yet onto reading books please practice green words 1.1-1.5 encourage children to Fred talk e.g. s-a-t and then say sat and also practice speed sound flashcards. 

 

Turn to the back cover of the story book - Questions to talk about. Give children the page number and give them time to find the page then ask them the questions. For 'FF' this stands for (fastest finger) your child has to find the answer and point and then tell you the answer.

Weekly Topic work (W.B 20th April 2020)

Our topic this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to gain a better understanding of their own family. 

I have provided you with some ideas of some activities you could do with your child over the course of the week. 

 

  • Look at a selection of family photographs and discuss the changes over time. Show your child a photograph of them as a baby, a 1-year-old, a 2-year-old. What could they do at that age? What can they do now that they couldn’t do then? Look at a picture of a family member as a baby (this could be parents, siblings). Discuss how everyone was a baby once. Are there any black and white photographs? Why are these photographs black and white? Do they show older family members when they were younger? Talk about how life was different then.

 

  • Draw a family tree- How does your family link together? Can your child draw out their family members and link them together using lines?

 

  • Do a picture survey of the people in your house. How many family members have blonde/ brown/ black/ red hair? Can you record this with pictures? How many people have blue/ brown/ green eyes?

 

  • Have a family picnic. Lay out a blanket in the living room or garden. Can children make sure everyone has a plate, fork, spoon, cup? How many do we need all together? Give your child a selection of food and ask them to share it fairly between everyone? If there is one left over what could we do?

 

  • Sort out the clean clothes. Who do they belong to? Can they deliver them to the right place in the house? Pair up socks. Can they match the patterns/ colours? Can they count in twos to work out how many there are all together? Peg clothes on the airer (this will support children to develop hand strength which will impact on their writing).

 

  • Lay the table for your family for dinner- How many people are there? How many knives, forks, cups do you need? Write out name cards for everyone in your family to show them where to sit. Write a menu to let them know what is for dinner that night. Roleplay as a waiter/ waitress. What would everyone like in their sandwiches for lunch? What drinks would everyone like to have with their dinner?

 

  • Make a birthday card for the next family birthday-  How old are they going to be? Can they write the numerals to show the correct age? Write a message inside for your family member and sign it with your name.

 

  • What jobs do the people in your family do? Talk to your child about your job and what you do. What would they like to be when they grow up? Can they draw a picture of themselves in the job they would like to do?

 

  • Use play dough to make your family members- Use ready made play dough or make your own using this recipe:
    • 2 cups of plain flour, one cup of salt, a tablespoon of oil, a cup of water (add gradually), a couple of drops of food colouring (optional), a teaspoon of cream of tartar (optional, but will make it last longer)
    •  
  • Play a family board game- Play a game together. Talk about taking it in turns and playing fairly. Dice games will support your child’s number recognition. You could use a spinner with numerals on to help develop numeral recognition. If you don’t have a spinner you could make one using an old cereal box and a split pin.

 

  • Find out everyone’s favourite song in your family- Listen to each person’s favourite song and make up a dance to match. Do you like the same music? What is your favourite song?

Easter Holidays

N.B just read each red word and get your child to copy, you do not need to sound them out.  Your child should now be becoming more confident as they have been practicing the same words for a number of days - they may just be able to read the words without sounding them out. This is great as it is developing their fluency! Get your child to read the whole book to you. 

 

If your child is not yet onto reading books please practice green words 1.1-1.5 encourage children to Fred talk e.g. s-a-t and then say sat and also practice speed sound flashcards. 

 

Hold a sentence - This is something the children are all familiar with so should know the routine! See below for the sentence you will be working on today (this depends on which colour your child is currently working on). Say the sentence to your child and get them to repeat until they are able to say the sentence independently. Then model to your child writing the sentence out encouraging them to remind you of capital letters and finger spaces (e.g. what do we need at the beginning? What do we need between words, what do we need at the end? etc). Encourage children to use 'Fred fingers' to sound out words. Read the sentence to your child and get them to repeat. Then hide the sentence you have written and get your child to write the sentence down independently. Your child may even show you how we mark them when they have finished!

Today's task involves making ladybird biscuits (on the website it also gives alternatives so see what you have in your cupboards) Utimately the children are going to be learning how to double numbers! E.g. make ladybird biscuits and put 2 spots on one side get your child to put the same number of spots on the other side "How many all together?" Adult to model language "yes double 2 equals 4". 

Don't worry if you do not have the ingredients in to make biscuits! (See day 6 maths task in home learning booklets instead). It is gingerbread man doubling today! I have left them blank so that children can see you drawing the sweeties on (can just use spots). E.g. for double 3. You draw 3 spots and get your child to draw 3 spots - get your child to count to see how many there is all together. Adult to model language "double 3 equals 6" etc.  Put emphasis on the fact that double means adding the same number again. Get your child to write the answer.

Makaton Signing

Our class love learning new makaton signs and we have been learning at least one new sign each week since we started in September, this is helping all children in our class communicate, and all the children love it! I thought it would be a real shame for children to miss out while not attending school so thought I would share some links to things your child might like to do at home! Please remember the importance of using vocabulary alongside signing to encourage children to use their voice. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/user/SingingHandsUK   (This is a great you tube channel and has lots of topic based makaton signing e.g. wild animals, farm animals as well as lots of makaton signed stories and songs)
