Tuesday’s Learning at home

 

I hope your first day of learning went well – thank you for the Tapestry posts!  (I know it is a little over-run with demand, but it does get through eventually).  If you have not managed to post then do try so I can see how your learning is going.

Remember all the below activities can be broken up with play – playing in the garden improve those ball skills!  Listening to music or sharing a story.  Going for a walk or riding your bike.  Get outside!

 

What are we learning today?

 

 
   

 

 

As part of our daily Literacy Learning....

Reading today

Spend 10 minutes reading.  Again, grab a reading book and use your sounding out skills to read new words. Log on to Bug Club for a good book that will really help you develop those sounding out skills.   Talk about where the story happened – the setting.  Have you read any other books that are set in the same place?  What others settings have your stories been in? 

 

 Next Phonics…

If you cannot get on the link below then grab your Set 1 cards and practice saying them quickly.  Remember these are not letter names but sounds (if you want to check the way to say them properly check out this link:

Explain that we are focusing upon the m sound today and practise saying this ensuring that the children have their lips together to make the sound correctly.

After reading the sounds singularly, now try them in words.  Write the following words on pieces of paper or card and then model how to say them by sounding out first and then saying the word, e.g. m-u-g…mug.  This really helps with blending.

Words to write on the cards today are:

mug      man      mop     map     mat     met      mill

(You’ll need to highlight the two -ll’s at the end of this word).

Next cover up the words and say we are focusing upon writing the words.

Use the words that you have read and, as before, sound them out before saying the words and get the children to write the word.  Do this for four words of your choice.  If your child is finding it too easy then try them with a simple sentence.  Here are two to get you started:

The mug is hot.       The mop is wet.

 

Or use the Read Write sessions below…

Spring into Sentences and Sounds

Today it is all about the birds and the nest picture!

What can you write about baby birds?  What do they look like?  What can they do?  Where do they hatch from?  Can you spot any in the garden?

Try and use the word The in your sentence today!

 

Now Learning Theme!

Spring Time – Learning Theme booklet!

Hope you enjoyed finding out about Spring babies yesterday.  This time see if you can find out about a different animal today.  Use the same idea as yesterday use book or the internet to find out information about your chosen animal.  What do they eat?  Where do they live?  What are their young called?  See if you can draw or write to communicate your learning!

 

Maths Activities

Let’s get those brains warmed up first – count up to 30 forwards and backwards.  Write some teen numbers down and show them individually to your child, can they read them?  Repeat for different numbers increasing them to 20+ or going down if they finding recalling them tricky.

What next…Sticking to the bird theme

Create a 2d chick – by cutting out the different 2d shapes.  Whilst your practising your cutting skills can you name the shapes?  Can you describe them using the words:

                     Curved sides      straight sides    and     corners                                                               

 

If you like create a family of chicks and this will give you the opportunity to think about sizes too!  (and also get a bit creative!)

Spring into Sentences and Sounds

Spring flowers – have you got any in your garden?

Today look carefully at the flowers.  What colour are they?  Are there any other Spring flowers that you have found?  Are they tall or short flowers?  Why do you think they are such bright colours?  Where can you find out? 

See if you can write a sentence about Spring flowers using your sounding out.  Don’t forget to use a capital letter at the beginning!

 

Now Learning Theme!

Spring Time – Learning Theme booklet!

Let’s get thinking about life cycles.  Where does a frog come from?  How does it life start?  How can we find out?  Using books and the internet learn about the frog lifecycle.  Learn new words such as tadpole, frog spawn, froglets and life cycle.

Now show me a frog life cycle.  You can use the template diagram in the Spring into Learning booklet or you can create your own.  You can draw and stick images o to a paper plate make a collage or paint a picture of what happens.  Can you label it with the key words too?

If you can get out and see if you can find some to really look at it.  Remember if you collect any to put them back after you have looked at them they are much more at home in the water they came from – and you don’t want froglets all over your house!

Number learning….

I have muddled all my digits up - can you help me put them in the correct order?

13     15    19    20    11     17     12     10      14    18    16

 

If you’d like a hot challenge try this!

29   30   23  22   25   21   20   26    28   24    

Unjumble and find which number is missing.

Use this as an opportunity to form your numbers correctly too.

You could go on to get objects, anything will do lego pasta shapes pencils or smarties (although these might rapidly disappear!) to count out objects to match the numbers above  Notice how some numbers have more – and these come later in the number sequence.
