J2blast - This week's spellings

an, in, nip, pan, pin, tin, tan, nap

I have added a new list of spellings on J2blast for you to access. Well done to the following children who have been going on J2blast and practising their spellings: Jordan, Arta, Luke, Nicholas, Unika, Constance, Nahom, Nathan, Ruby, Valentina, Shalom, Haris and Caleb!

A reminder of useful games/websites/apps - click on the picture to see more

NumbotsThis is a great game online which focuses on basic skills in maths. You should have your log ins at home, but please email me on the address above if you need them again.
ActiveLearnThis website has lots of ebooks for you to read at home. This would be great to use as you don't have your school reading books at the moment! Obviously still continue to read any books that you have at home too. 
J2blastThis is a spelling game that you can find on BGFL - there isn't a link to this, just find the app on BGFL. Each week I will post a new set of spellings for you to practise spelling. You can of course play the games as much as you want to and you may want to learn additional words!

Teach your monster how to readIf you haven't already downloaded this app, it's a great one to help with phonics at home. Lots of games to play to help learn the phonic sounds.

The website/computer version is free!

Morning routine

We always start our morning by talking about the date and weather. We sing the days of the week song and we discuss the date - what day was it yesterday, what day is it today...tomorrow? If yesterday was the 17th, what is today? What is one more than 17... Perhaps you can talk about the date and weather at home. There is a youtube link of the days of the week song below.

Days of the Week song

Basic skills

1. Practise writing your name - If you can already do this, have a go at your surname or even your middle name if you have one. smiley


2. Have a look at the 'I can see document' below. Take a look at Day 1. 

I wonder if you can write something about this picture? I wonder if you can think of your own sentence or perhaps you could write another ‘I can see’ sentence. I can see... It is up to you! If this is a bit tricky, you could have a go at writing some sounds/words.


3. Word of the day - Take a look at the document of slides below. Take a look at Day 1 and complete the activity!

Collective Worship

Please click on the document below to see this week's Collective Worship. Please look at Monday - 1.) Daily devotion. 2.) The Bible story. If you have a Bible at home, perhaps you can read it with an adult.

Today we are starting a new story. Over the next few weeks we are going to focus on a traditional story each week. This week's story is the Jack and the beanstalk. There will be a little activity each day linked to the story

I have added the story powerpoint below and all the other resources you will need in one document. Today I would like you to read the story and then have a go at sequencing the story using key pictures from the story. I wonder if you can retell the story using the key pictures? Think about the key language, e.g. “Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman!”

Phonics - oa

We will practise our new sound 'oa' today.

In phonics, we do the following things:

1. Sing the alphabet song (the video below is slightly different to the one we sing at school, but the children know it).

2. Practise all of the sounds that we have learned so far.

3. Practise reading words with the previous sound in.

4. Watch a video of our new sound.

5. Practise writing the new sound (pre-cursive letter formation).

6a. Practise reading words with our new sound in. We segment the sounds and blend them together to say/read the word, e.g. the word -  cat - segment ---> c-a-t - blend ---> cat!

6b. Practise writing words with the new sound in.

1. Alphabet Phonics Song

2. Practise all sounds learned so far!

3. Practise reading these words

 Lunch time 

Little Big Maths

Please take a look at this week's Little Big Maths powerpoint (resource below). These are basic skills to practise throughout the week.

Understanding the world

Take a look at the slides below. I wonder if you can talk about nocturnal animals with an adult at home.

Perhaps your comments could be written down - what are the key facts/key features of a nocturnal animal?
Take a look at the focus task. If you have the resources at home, you might like to make one of the animal crafts. smiley

I have also added some extra activities that you could have a go at too. Enjoy!

End of the day story

Today's end of the day story - Oi duck-billed platypus! I hope you enjoy it!
