Please can you choose a 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.
If you would like another activity, then read/listen to ‘Doing the Animal Bop’.
You can listen to the story, or mute it and read parts of the story. You can also dance along and do some animal actions!
Maybe you could also try to listen out for some rhyming words!
Brain warm up: Warm up your brain by listening to the Phase 3 or 4 tricky words songs. Ask an adult to help you search on YouTube.
Phase 3 song: ‘Phase 3 tricky words song say hello to’
Phase 4 song: ‘Phase 4 Tricky Words Song Sight Words Song for said, have, like, come, some, what, when’
*Remember to take photographs of the tricky words and sing along too!*
Phase 4 learning:
If you would like more challenge, then when you roll the dice, write that word in a sentence.
Today I’d like you to practice Capital letters and small letters. Choose letters that you know that you need to improve.
Practise forming letters in different ways:
1. In the air – SKY WRITING
2. On a family member’s back (or your pet- gently!) – TICKLE WRITING
3. On paper – PENCILWRITING
Are you using the correct pencil grip?
Are you starting the letter in the correct place?
Are your letters sitting on the line?
How did you do? What are your stars and wish?
Q. What have you done particularly well?
Q. How could you make your letters even better?
Maths: Investigating number combinations within 20
You will need:
A number line 0-20, number cards 1-20, 20 small objects for counting e.g. pennies, 4 small bowls or containers (or you could draw circles/purses on a sheet of paper).
**Have a go at sharing 14 objects into your 4 containers. How many different ways can you find? Make sure you do careful counting using your counting finger! Have a go at recording your thinking using a parts whole diagram. Now choose another number and do the same**
Can you be a superstar learner and use the maths key vocabulary today? *same, different, share equally, groups*
How many objects are in each container?
Does each container have the same amount of objects?
How many are in each container?
How many objects are in each group?
Can you share this number equally between the containers?
Does each container have the same amount or a different amount?
You've worked hard this week, so it's time to take some time to relax your body and calm your mind. Follow the link below to Cosmic Yoga and listen to 'Peace Out: Friendly wishes'. When you've finished, think about how it made you feel. Could you relax? Did you have pictures in your mind? Relaxing, being still and slowing down your breathing takes practise but you get better each time you do it. Have a lovely weekend.
