Friday

Good Morning Brilliant Butterflies!

You've achieved another week of home learning, well done!

I'm sure that you knew that the picture was of sunflowers yesterday.

Do you know this flower? They aren't always red.

READING

Please can you choose a non-fiction book and spend 10 minutes+ reading/sharing it with an adult or older sibling. It can be a book that you have at home or an eBook on the Oxford Owl website.

 

**Today I’d like you to find a book that has a glossary.**

 

Key questions of the day…

Why do we need a glossary?

What is special about how it’s ordered?

How can you tell which words are in the glossary?

What does it mean when a word is written in Bold writing?

 

PHONICS:

Brain warm up: Warm up your brain by recalling Phase 3 tricky words (or phase 4 if you are confident with them).

You could use word cards to play a game of pairs or snap. You could use tricky word trucks on Phonics Play or listen to the tricky word songs on You tube from last week.

 

Phase 4 learning:

Have fun playing one of the Read and Race games to practice reading Phase 4 words. Look out for the difficult consonant clusters! Always remember to be a good digraph detective and look for Phase 3 digraphs and trigraphs!

 

Maths: Investigating sharing in equal groups.

 

Follow the link to todays maths lesson to investigate what happens when things can’t be shared equally.

 

You will need 10 objects for counting and 2 containers to count them in to.

 

**Share with the people in your household. What can be shared equally and what can’t? How many do each of you have? Is there anything left over?**

 

Writing: 

Follow the link below to access the Oak Academy Lesson ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears Story writing (Part 2)’

 

You will need a pencil, lined paper, your story map and a teddy talk partner. 

 

**Today, you will finish writing the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears**

 

I can't wait to read your stories!

 

Things to remember to be a good writer:

  • Think about your letter formation (use letter families poster)
  • Are there any phase 3 digraphs/digraphs you can use in the words? (You could use your phase 3 sound mat)
  • Any longer words, remember to chop them up into parts to make it easier to sound out for writing

e.g. Gol-dee-locs

  • Finger spaces needed between each word
  • Remember to use capital letters for names e.g. Goldilocks

 

*If you want more challenge then, instead of using the sentences that the teacher suggests, you could stop the video and use your story map to write your own sentences. Also, instead of using the word bank, have a go at the words yourself! Try to use some story language e.g. Once upon a time, the End.*

 

It's Wellbeing Friday!

Follow the link to the Cosmic Yoga page. Choose a 'Peace Out' video (usually less than 10 minutes) For example Sleeping Dragon Guided Meditation.

 

It's good to be active and busy but it's also important to know how to relax your body and mind. 

Try to stay still and relax, use your listening ears and enjoy 10 minutes of peace!
