I hope you had a good weekend.
Just a reminder that each of these activities should only take about 15 minutes at a time and can be spread throughout the day like we do at school. You should break up your learning by doing other things e.g spending time playing with your toys or getting some exercise.
Here is your learning for today:
Use your sounds to complete the sentence. e.g I go to the prk. (park) Remember it is ok to only write the sounds you hear. It doesn't have to be spelled correctly. As always, don't forget a capital letter for the start of the sentence, finger spaces and a full stop at the end. You can write more than one sentence if you want to.
Phonics: The phoneme for today is ch
Watch this Youtube video with Josh for today's phoneme.
Now it's time for some reading with Josh.
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 letter. Next, try writing it on paper. We learn to write c and h together because it is a digraph - 2 letters that make one sound.
Literacy: Now that you have learned the story of 'Owl Babies', make some owl puppets and retell the story to someone in your house, using them. Draw your own pictures of Sarah, Percy and Bill and cut them out. Turn them into puppets by sticking them with sellotape onto a fork or spoon. Or use the pictures below.
Now it's your turn to have a go. Set up your own picnic for two then three of your own toys. Share some food (or you can pretend any objects are food) between the two then three toys. Which toy has more? Which toy has less/fewer? Do they have the same (an equal) amount? Is it fair?
Last week we looked at night and day in Maths. During the day, the sun makes light but at night we have to turn lights on in our homes. What objects can you find in your house that make light? Record what you find on a piece of paper. Look below to see what light sources I found in my house.
If you have a torch, shine it on a wall. What shadow shapes can you make with your fingers and hands? Put your toys in front of the torch to see their shadows. If you put the toy near the torch, does it make the shadow bigger or smaller? Now move the toy away. What happens?
