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, focus on the careful blending of sounds in unfamiliar words (that can be decoded) using alphabet sounds and digraphs/ trigraphs. Why not copy out some of the words and show where the sound buttons would go? Remember, a digraph/ trigraph will only have one sound button for it as it is one sound with two/ three letters **



Key questions of the day...

Q. Is there a PROBLEM in your story?

Q> What is it and how is it resolved?

Q. How would you sort out that problem?


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 - Why not make yourself some easy phase 3 digraph/ trigraph flashcards at home? You just need bits of paper/ old food boxes cut into squares and write on the sound. How many sounds can you say in 1 minute?!



** Use/ refer to the sound button cards to pick words to practise blending using the phase 3 digraphs/ trigraphs you've learnt.


WRITING – So the plan is coming together!

Evil Pea and the pea gang won’t get away with mischief for much longer!




** Use the story map (you can just draw three big boxes/ circles on paper) to show the beginning, middle and end of the Evil Pea capture.



BEGINNING – Draw pictures and add relevant labels to show where Evil Pea and the pea gang are (the story setting).


MIDDLE – Supertato and/or the Super Veggies come along and use the equipment from your list on Monday to capture Evil Pea and pea gang.


ENDING – Supertato and the Super Veggies celebrate!


Things to remember...

- Use the story telling language

'Once upon a time... happily ever after... the end'

to explain your story.


MATHS – 3D (fat) shapes


** Let’s be a SHAPE DETECTIVE!

Use the 3D shapes mat to help you learn the names for these ‘fat’ shapes.

Have a look around your house and see what real-life everyday 3D objects you can find, eg. tin of beans is a cylinder…



** Practise being able to NAME the different 3D shapes found…
