Brilliant Butterflies!



I hope you have a great day of learning at home.


** Remember, your adult can upload any examples of the learning we set for you at home to Tapestry to share with Mrs Lilley, Miss Blake and Mrs Goodridge. We'll enjoy seeing what you've been up to and can make a comment back **


Here are the activities for the day...




READING: Please can you spend 10 minutes+ daily reading/ sharing books  (story or non-fiction) with an adult or older sibling. See the 'Reading weblinks' folder for Oxford Owl free online eBooks if you want some new ideas.


** Today, pick a book you're not familiar with and use the front cover with title and picture clues to PREDICT (crystal ball) what you think the book will be about **


Key questions of the day...

Q. Is your book a story or non-ficton book?

How do you know/ can you tell inside?

Q. What is your favourite part of the book? Why?


Things to remember to be a good reader...

- Look at front cover to work out the title.

- Can you find the author's name?

- Be a good digraph detective!

- Track words with your finger.

-  Look out for any tricky words you know how to read by sight.

- Use WORD BREAKDOWN to say when there's a word you don't understand or know what it means in the story context.



PHONICS - Use BBC Supermovers alphabet song to practise letter NAMES.





(or if you'd rather, another alphabet song/ letter names video you're given permission by an adult to watch from You Tube)


** Use/ refer to the attached worksheet to practise using your phase 3 digraphs to add labels for the picture clues.

You can add sound buttons to help you break up the words to write.


** If you want to challenge yourself, why not choose one of the labels and make up a funny/ interesting/ factual simple sentence!




WRITING – So Evil Pea and his pea gang are still on the lose! But you have a plan (from yesterday) of how you are going to try and trap them!




** Independently/ with some adult support, write a speech bubble for Supertato to explain how he is going to finally capture them, eg. I will…



Things to remember to be a good writer

- Sound out the word carefully to hear as many sounds as you can

- Use your digraphs/ trigraphs sound mat

- Recall tricky word spellings from phase 2 and 3

- Remember to put a finger space between each word

- For longer words, chop them up into two bits to make sounding out easier, eg. clap the parts (syllables) to break up the word.

- Look at the letter formation mat to help you remember where to start (robot, caterpillar, zig zag monster, ladder letters)


MATHS – 2D (flat) shapes


** Have fun making your own 2D shapes (circle, square, rectangle, triangle, oval, semi-circle, diamond) using whatever resources you have at home! Make sure you practise describing the 2D shape using key vocabulary, eg.









Ideas: cutlery, lollipop sticks, straws, line up toys, construction bricks…



** If you’ve got paper/ coloured paper/ card/ crayons at home then why not have a go (with adult help to cut out the shapes) creating a 2D picture. Photos of your work can go on Tapestry remember!
