Now for the reading.
Practise reading these words.
Writing : Keep practising your handwriting. Follow the direction of the arrows. Use your magic writing finger at first, don't stop writing until you finish the pattern or letter. Next, try writing it on paper.
Literacy - Today, listen and read along to the story of 'Owl Babies'. Who are the characters in the story? Where does the story take place? When does the story happen? Why do they wake up at night? Why do you think the baby owls flapped and danced and bounced when they saw their mother?
Can you find the words below in the story?
Maths: What day is it today? What day was it yesterday? What day will it be tomorrow?
Can you remember when we sang 5 currant buns at school? We got cakes and coins and some of you took turns to buy currant buns and take them away. The cakes got less but the coins got more. Can you remember why that was?
Watch the video from White Rose Maths - It's the Alive in 5! Week 1 Session 1 video
Once you have finished watching the video, have a go at home acting out the 5 current buns song. You can use anything to represent the buns and buttons or coins to be the pennies.
It has been so cold over the past week. That's because it is the season of Winter. When we go out, we put our coats, hats, scarves and gloves on. When you go out, practise getting dressed all by yourself. When you put your coat on, practise doing the zip. Can you put your gloves on by yourself? It can be tricky, but as Marissa always says, 'Practise makes perfect!' We can't wait to see how much you can do for yourself when we see each other again.
