Happy New Year! This isn't quite the start to Spring term that any of us thought, but I hope that you are all staying safe at home.
I am sorry that we can't be together just yet but I hope to see you soon.
Each day I will post the learning that I would like you to do here on this blog. The day and date will be at the top.
The activities are designed to be short (no more than 15 minutes) and you can do them throughout the day, like we would at school. If you are enjoying them you can spend a bit longer but if you are finding them tricky you can do a little bit of the activity and go back to it later. If you have any problems or questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to share anything you have learned that would be great too!
Here are your activities for today:
Phonics: The sound for today is j
Watch this Youtube video for today's sound.
Now it's time for some reading.
Watch Rachel again and practise reading the words along with her.
Writing: Practise writing your name. Don't forget you only need a capital letter for the first letter. All the other letters should be lower case.
If you can already write your name without help try writing some of your high frequency words. Can you write a sentence and read it to someone who lives with you?
I can see the dog.
I like to run.
My mum and I went to get the dog.
Maths - Practise counting - start at 0 and count all the way to 20.
Our number of the week is 6
Do you know anyone who has a door number 6? What about someone who is 6 years old? Can you show 6 on your fingers? How many different ways can you make six using your fingers?
If you have a dice - find the face that has six dots.
Can you find six objects to count? You could use spoons, pegs, forks, leaves - anything you can find.
Sort the objects into 2 groups - 5 and 1, 4 and 2, 3 and 3. Put them altogether and count them - you still have 6.
Put them in a straight line and count them. Put them in a circle and count them. Spread them all out and count them. Which way was easy to count? Which was hardest? Could you say there were six before you counted them?
Watch this Numberblocks episode for the number six
Practise the days of the week song that we sing in class. See below for the song on Youtube to remind you. What day is it today? What day will it be tomorrow? Have you got a calendar at home - you could look each day to see what day it is and what number the day is (the date).
