Good morning superstars, it is the weekend time to relax.  Well done to you all on all the work you have been doing, you really are superstars!

Don’t forget to work out with Joe Wicks and name writing.

Literacy

The snail went on adventures with the whale and even though he had found a new friend I am sure he missed his family and friends back home. Yesterday my children received a letter from their Nan and Grandad, which really brightened their day up.  At the moment we can’t see everyone we want to, so I want you to make a postcard and send it to someone you are missing.  Below is a template to draw your picture on the front and write a short message on the back.  Remember to use your finger spaces and sound each word out. Think about how the letters are formed and don’t forget to put your name at the bottom.

Ted our class bear came home to my house, so that he wasn’t on his own.  Below are some photos of what he has been up to.  Sunbathing in the hammock, playing football (he did manage to save a goal from Josh and Sam), bouncing on the trampoline with Sam and meeting Chester. Ted also has written a postcard to you all, hope you enjoy reading it. He is missing you all so much and missing his cuddles.

Maths

Can you count to 10 and back with your grown up? Next can you have a go at counting to 20 and back?

Today I want you to pick a number between 3 and 12 and have a go at completing the worksheet below. It asks you to pick a number and find that number of blue objects.  When you have found them draw them on the worksheet.

The second worksheet is naming and matching shapes.  I want you after to see how many shapes you can spot around your house.

Below is a link to a game to recap on our sounds.  The sounds that appear on the pirate ships say them out loud to your grown up. They will then click on the button if you are right. Have a go at phase 1.  Have fun.

Extra

If you go on to class dojo there are two activities set for you to have a go at.  One is show and tell, to video something you want to show.  It could be something you’ve made, a song, a dance, something you have discovered while out on a walk.  Anything you want!  The other one is to share what you have been up to over the coming half-term.

Hope you have a fantastic half-term and I will be back soon with more activities for you to do.

Good morning my lovelies, I hope you have had fun in the sun this week!

Don’t forget to begin your day with Joe Wicks and name writing.

Literacy

If you went on your minibeast hunt yesterday can you remember all the different ones you found? Today I want you to draw a picture of your favourite minibeast and then have a go at writing a few words to describe what they are like.   Might be the colour, how they move, what they feel like. Carefully sound out your words and have a go at writing down the sounds you hear. My favourite minibeast is the ladybird, so I have a picture of a ladybird.

red, black spots, small, smooth, crawl are my describing words.

One of the describing words I thought of is red. I can sound this word out. It has three sounds in r-e-d. Remember to say the rhyme when writing your letters if you are unsure of where to start.

Have a go and I look forward to seeing your minibeasts!

Phonics

Today’s sound that we are recapping on is the ‘k’ sound. K is a bouncy sound : k, k, k kangaroo   k,k,k kite  k,k,k  king can you think of more things beginning with the ‘k’ sound?

Let’s have a go at writing a ‘k’ in the air. Remember we loop our ‘k’ so the rhyme we say to help write it is a little different. The rhyme is: down the kangaroo’s body, loop the tail and down the leg. Have a go at writing it on your writing pad (hand) with your Peter pointer remember to say the rhyme as you write it.

Science

Today I thought you could be explorers. We are looking at snails I thought you could go on a minibeast hunt. Look in your garden and maybe if you go for a walk you can look for some too, but remember to be careful!  Below is a sheet for you to tick off or write in the box how many of each Minibeasts you find.  Which are your favourite Minibeasts?

This week we are going to revisit sounds. Today we are going to look at the sound ‘b’.  The sound b is a bouncy sound: bbb ball, bbb big, bbb boat,  bbb bin.  Can you think of anything else that begins with the ‘b’ sound?

Now let’s have ago at writing a ‘b’. The rhyme to help us is down the laces to the heel and around the toe. Can you write a ‘b’ in the air?  Can you write a ‘b’ on your writing pad (your hand) with your Peter pointer?  Don’t forget to say the rhyme each time.

Creative

I thought we would look at the artist Henri Matisse(1869-1954) who was a French painter. One of his master pieces was ‘The Snail’

The collage has been made by cutting brightly coloured pieces of paper.  Does it look like a snail to you? Look closely at the colours that have been used and put next to each other.  I want you to have a go at creating your own snail collage using scissors to cut shapes out of coloured paper and then stick them onto a white piece of paper. Remember it is your creation of a snail.  Have fun and I look forward to seeing your masterpieces.

Love Mrs North xx

Below is a link to a recipe to make some fish shaped biscuits. I know you probably will not have a fish shape cutter, so you will need your grown up to help with making the shape.  If you have a star shaped cutter, maybe they could be starfish biscuits instead.

Maths

This week we have been looking at 1 more than a given number.  Below is a link to the number blocks looking at what happens when we just add 1.

Phonics

Our next sound is qu. This is a bouncy sound. Qu,qu,qu queen,  qu,qu,qu quick,  qu,qu,qu, quack, qu, qu, qu quiet.  Can you think of anymore words beginning with qu?

Let’s have a go at writing the qu sound. Here is the rhyme to help you write the q. Round her head, up past her earrings, down her hair, and flick.  Then you need to say the rhyme to write the u. down and under, up to the top and draw the puddle. Q always has their friend u with them.  Let’s write it on our writing pads (hand) with our Peter pointer round her head, up past her earrings, down her hair, and flick. Remember to then write the u sound next to the q. On a piece of paper have a go at writing the q sound, it is a tricky one!

RE

Last week we looked at Jonah and the whale.  Can you remember the story? Tell your grown up what you remember about the story. Below is a craft of Jonah and the whale to have a go at making.  You will need your grown up to help with the gluing together of the craft.

JONAH and the GREAT FISH Craft

Don’t forget to log into Charanga for music and have a look at the work set on there.  If you can’t find your login details message me and I will resend it to you.

Morning lovelies.  The weather isn’t so nice this week so far, but I hope you are all managing to go out for your walks.

Don’t forget to start your day with Joe Wicks and handwriting.

Literacy

Over the next few weeks we are going to be doing a lot of work on rhyme. Rhyming is important because it helps us with our reading and writing.

Today I want you to play a rhyming game called my rhyming hat.

Below is a word sheet to print off and some pictures.  If you are unable to print them off, then your grown up may be able to write the words onto a piece of paper and find some objects that rhyme with those words.

My rhyming hat

Scissors

Instructions

Cut out the pictures and put them in to a hat.

Shake the hat well

Pull out a picture from the hat and match it to your word rhyming sheet.  Eg picture of a hat would match the word cat.

Continue playing until all the words and pictures are gone.

Maths

Below are two addition counting sheets of sharing a shell. One is up to 10 and the second up to 20. You can have a go at one or both of them.

Good morning superstars, I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Don’t forget to start your day with Joe Wicks and name writing.

Literacy

We are continuing our theme of under the sea. Below is the link to this week’s story, which looks at friendship.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpJumAZx1t8

Maths

I want you to count to 20 and back with your grown up.

Today we are going to count different actions like last week, but I want you to count 1 more than the number I have given you.

1 more than …

4 claps

6 jumps

3 hops

12 taps on your knees

8 big steps.

Phonics

Today we are going to look at the w sound.  W is a stretchy sound.  www water, www wink,  www worm,  www wing,  www win.  Can you think of any more things beginning with w?

Let’s practise writing the letter w.  Down, up, down, up. Let’s practise writing it in the air: down, up, down, up.  Can you write w on your writing pad (hand) with your Peter pointer? Remember to say the rhyme down, up, down, up.

PE

Today I want you to play a game, it is important you listen to the instructions your grown up gives you. We have played the game a few times at school, it is the bean game.

The Bean Game

Your grown up calls out the name of a bean and you have to do the action. Possible beans might include:

  • Runner Beans – run into spaces
  • Jumping Beans – jump into spaces
  • Kidney Beans – hop around holding onto a knee
  • Baked Beans – lay flat on your back as if you are baking in the sun
  • Broad Beans – move around making broad shapes with your body
  • String Beans – move around making skinny, string-like shapes with your body.
  • Chilli Beans  –  act as if you are chilly
  • Jelly beans – run around wobbling like jelly.

Your grown up may also like to call out ‘Freeze’ from time to time for which you should freeze in the position that you are in.

Can you think of any other beans and an action for it?

Creative

For this activity you will need a pebble or stone.  I want you to decorate it with a sea creature of your choice.  You may want to draw a fish, crab, starfish etc… Think about the colours you will use.  When it is finished I thought it would be nice when you go out for your walk if you leave them for someone else to find. You never know one of your friends may find it while they are out walking! Below is one Mrs North made and I am going to leave it for someone to find when I go for a walk.

Challenge

Last week’s challenge was to put your shoes on by yourself, which I know you have been trying hard with.  This week’s challenge is to have a go at getting dressed all by yourself.

I hope you have lots of fun with the activities today.  I am missing you all lots, but I am so proud of each and every one of you. Keep up your good work and listening to your grown up.

Don’t forget to send me your pictures.

Maths

I know many of you have been enjoying the interactive maths games.  Below is a link to a game to put numbers first 1-5 into order and then moving onto 1-10.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ordering-and-sequencing/caterpillar-ordering

Phonics

The weather is nice at the moment, so I thought we could do our phonics outside.  You will need a paint brush, a pot of water and chalks. If you haven’t got chalks this activity can be done with just water and a paint brush.

Ask your grown up to write the sounds below outside with the chalks.  Then I want you to dip your paint brush in some water and trace over the letter sound that your grown up has written.  If you don’t have chalks have a go with writing the sounds with the paintbrush and water. Remember to say the rhyme for the letter sound and start in the correct place.  Most letters begin at the top, but some begin in the middle.

M – Down Maisie mountain, mountain

e –Lift off the top and scoop out the egg.

n- Down Nobby and over his net

o – All around the orange

r- Down the robots back and curl over his arm

u – Down and under, up to the top and draw the puddle.

PSHE

This activity I would like you to send your pictures to me through your Class dojo profile so that I can build a collage to put on to the class story.

When we are in difficult times, it is hard to always be thankful. Sometimes we think of things that may make us feel a bit sad.  I want the collage to help us remember there is always something to be thankful for.

What I want you to do is make a hand print and then write something you are thankful for on it.

I look forward to receiving your thankful handprints.

Have a lovely weekend and I will be back on Monday with a new story of the week and lots of fun activities.

Don’t forget to go on to class story tonight for another story time.

Keep safe my lovelies

Phonics

Today we are going to look at the sound ‘u.’   U is a bouncy sound: uuu umbrella,   uuu under,  uuu up,  uuu uncle can you think of some more things that begin with the ‘u’ sound?

Let’s practice writing the u sound down and under up to the top and draw the puddle.  Say the rhyme and write it in the air.  Can you write it on your writing pads (hand) with your Peter pointer down and under up to the top and draw the puddle.

History

The time we are in at the moment is very different and a good time to make memories for the future. I thought it would be a good idea to make a time capsule.

What you need is a container. Decorate your container to make it personal.

If you are hiding it inside the house a shoe box or cardboard box will be fine. If you want to bury it in the garden than a plastic container with a lid, a metal coffee tin etc..

Inside your time capsule put a photo, picture you have drawn, maybe a comic, a small toy, newspaper cutting, hand/footprint anything you think would be good to look back on in the future.  Don’t forget what you put in your time capsule you won’t be able to get back for a long time so don’t put your favourite toy in.

Remember to put todays date on your time capsule so that we remember when it was made. Below is a link to help with ideas.

https://www.mykidstime.com/things-to-do/how-to-make-a-time-capsule-with-kids/

I hope you have fun with today’s activities.  I am going to have a go at making my own time capsule and will post a photo for you to see!

Tuesday 21/4/20

Morning superstars.  I have enjoyed looking at the Rainbow fishes you created yesterday and hearing about what your favourite part of the story was.  Here are some more activities to do following our Rainbow fish theme this week.

Don’t forget to begin your day with Joe Wicks and name writing.  You are doing amazingly with your name writing, keep it up!

Literacy

The Rainbow fish learnt to share with his friends in the end.  At the moment we can’t be with our friends and that is hard.  Think of your friends and what you would share with them, it doesn’t have to be a toy it maybe a hug or your favourite food.  When you have thought about what you would share draw a picture of it. Then have a go at writing what it is either just the word or a sentence. Don’t forget to sound each word out.  What sound can you hear at the beginning, middle and end? Remember to use your crocodile snap grip when holding your pencil.

Maths

Today I thought we would have some singing in our maths.  Below are some links to some counting songs. 10 little fish, 5 little ducks went swimming one day and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 once I caught a fish alive.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dg0cQtVisLw

Phonics

Yesterday we looked at the r sound.

Below are some words that begin with the r sound.  Can you sound them out in Fred talk and then blend them.

r-a-t      rat

r-o-t      rot

r-a-n     ran

r-e-d    red

r-i-p      rip

Science

Because we are looking at colour with the Rainbow fish I thought it would be fun to try out a messy science experiment.  It may be a good idea to try this one outside. Below is a link to the experiment. The site is an American one, so just normal baking soda and vinegar will work.

https://www.messylittlemonster.com/2019/02/rainbow-baking-soda-science-experiment-for-kids.html

Monday 20/4/20

Good morning lovelies, I hope you have had a lovely Easter break.

Don’t forget to begin your day with Joe Wicks and writing your name.

I thought we would look at the theme of water this half-term.  After our energetic work out I think we need some relaxing time, so let’s take a pretend trip to the ocean.  Time to use your imagination, which I know you are fantastic at doing. Close your eyes and imagine you are going to the sea.  Tell your grown up what sounds you can hear? I can hear the waves crashing and the sun is shining and making the sea sparkle.  What is the weather like at your ocean? Pretend to put your feet in the water, it is lovely and warm.  What does it feel like on your toes? What can you see swimming in the sea? I’ve just seen a crab and a starfish. I’ve enjoyed pretending to be at the sea, hope you did!

Literacy

Listen to the story the Rainbow fish, the link is below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFORvXhub28

Here are some questions for your grown up to ask to help remember the story.

Who was the most beautiful fish in the ocean?

What did Rainbow fish’s scales look like?

Who wanted one of the Rainbow fish’s shiny scales?

How did Rainbow fish feel when the little blue fish asked him for one of his scales?

Maths

I am going to put some numbers on here.  Maybe your grown up could write them on a piece of paper to show you.  Each number has an action that I want you to do that many times.  Remember don’t do any more or any less than the given number.

4 claps

7 jumps

5 hops

10 taps on your nose.

Below is the link to play an underwater counting game. Start with numbers to 5, then move on to numbers to 10.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/underwater-counting

Phonics

Today we are going to look at the ‘r’ sound.  Rrrr is a stretchy sound (say rrr as if you are growling): rrrr robot, rrrr rabbit, rrr race, rrr ribbon.  Can you tell your grown up some other things that begin with r?

Let’s practise writing the letter r.  Down the robots back and curl over his arm. Let’s practise writing it in the air: down the robots back and curl over his arm.  Can you write r on your writing pad (hand) with your Peter pointer? Remember to say the rhyme down the robots back and curl over his arm.

Creative

The Rainbow fish had beautiful shiny scales.  With the resources you have at home can you make a Rainbow fish?  You may want to draw a fish and colour it in or you may want to draw a fish and stick lots of different coloured pieces of paper on. I look forward to seeing the creative Rainbow fishes you make.

Challenge

Before Easter I set the challenge for you to put your coats on all by yourselves and have a go at zipping them up.  I hope you all managed to have ago.

My new challenge is to have a go at putting your shoes on all by yourself.  Remember to check you have them on the right feet!

Yesterday we looked at the ‘p’ sound.  How many things can you find around your house beginning with p?

Below is a link to Alpha blocks all about the p sound.

Below is an easy recipe to make for play dough. Remember to make this with your grown up and be careful near boiling water.   Playing with play dough will help your fingers become stronger for writing.  If you are able to get the ingredients to make the play dough, maybe you can have a go at making the letter p.

Play dough recipe

1.5 cup of flour

1 cup of boiling water

½ cup salt

2 tsp cream of tartar

2 tbs oil

Food colouring

Add all of the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Flour, salt, cream of tartar

In a separate bowl mix the food colouring and boiling water.

Mix the dry ingredients, the oil and coloured boiling water and mix with a spoon.

Once the water cools down a bit, you can start kneading the dough.

Add a little more flour if the play dough sticks to your fingers.  If put too much flour in and feels dry add a little more water.

Hope you have lots of fun with your play dough.  I wonder what colour you are going to make.

Don’t forget to take photos and make lots of memories.

Go outside and sit in the garden what sounds can you hear?  Remember to stay quiet for 1 whole minute and tell your grown up what different sounds you heard.

Going to look at the sound ‘p’.

What foods in the story begin with the sound ‘p’?

Can you think of a different food that begins with the ‘p’ sound?

Finally use the worksheet to practice writing the letter ‘p’.  If you are unable to print off the worksheet then your grown up can write the letter p on a piece of paper with a highlighter pen or a yellow felt tip.

P worksheet

Don’t forget your crocodile snap grip.

Science

Do you know where the hungry caterpillar’s foods come from?

Do apples grow on a tree or in the ground?

What do plants need to grow?

Enjoy your day, don’t forget to have lots of fun in your garden. Take lots of photos to make memories and I look forward to seeing all that you have been up to.

Today we are going to look at the story of The Hungry Caterpillar.  Below is a link to the story being read by the author Eric Carle himself.

Can you answer these questions for your grown up?

What foods did the hungry caterpillar eat on day 5?

Which is your favourite food?

Can you remember what a cocoon is?

Can you think of different foods for the hungry caterpillar to eat for example

Day 1 -1 banana

Day 2- 2 grapes etc

 

Finally can you draw a beautiful butterfly.

What colours will you choose?

Remember the pattern must be the same on both wings because there is a line of symmetry.

Enjoy your day. Don’t forget to have fun in your garden and play lots too!
