Week 9 - 18th May
Monday 18th May
To begin this new week of home learning we are going to focus on some famous buildings.
Look at the photos and choose your favourite famous building. Research the building and find out when it was built, why it was built and what it is used for? Try and draw a picture of the building and write a sentence to tell me what you like about the building or a fact that you have learnt.
Number formation using building blocks, pasta or any materials you have available. Begin to practise reciting numbers to 100 by watching the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGetqbqDVaA. Grown-ups will then call out a number for you to form using their chosen material. To begin work on forming numbers 1-20 but as they grow in confidence increase the numbers.
I look forward to seeing your learning.
Tuesday 19th May
Here are today’s challenges.
Today we are going to learn about doubling. Doubling is when we add the same number together e.g. 1+1, 2+2, 3+3… Watch the Numberblocks episode below
How many double number sentences can you write?
Tricky word race – for this you can use a timer or you may wish to race against a family member.
You will need a grown-up to read out the Phase 3 tricky words. How fast can you write them? Can you go faster if you do it again? You will get one point for every correct word and there is a bonus 5 points if all your letters are formed correctly or sit on the line.
Wednesday 20th May
Today we are going to be looking at the wonderful birds that we have in our country.
A bird hunt – look out your window or go into your garden and look for birds. Record the birds that you have seen. To do this you could use tally marks to record how many birds you see, you could draw the birds that you saw or you could write the birds name if you know them. I would then like you to research one of the birds you have seen or a bird that you know lives in our country. Please find out as many facts as you can and create a poster about your chosen bird.
Art – Can you create a picture of your chosen bird? You could use colouring pencils, paint or maybe create a collage using natural materials.
I look forward to seeing your posters and pictures.
Thursday 21st May
Here are today’s challenges
Phonics- Today we are going to play a game called Corners. Your grown-up will need to write th, ow, ee and ng on separate pieces of paper and put them into the corners of the room. Grown-ups will then need to segment the following words, now ask your child to blend the sounds and tell you the word. Finally, they will then need to run to the sound that is in each word. E.g. you would say b-a-th, your child will blend and say the word ‘bath’, and they will then run to the ‘th’ piece of paper.
Bath, cow, sheep, sting, think, crown, green, king, three, bow, sleep, strong
How many can you remember? Try and write as many as you can.
For this next activity we are going to explore the different technology that we have in our homes. First, watch the attached episode of Maddie’s Do You Know? How does the television work?
Write down any facts that you have learnt or you may like to investigate a different form of technology in your home. You could find out when it was made? Did your grown-ups have it when they were your age? How does it work? Does it need batteries or does it work off electricity? Where does electricity come from? Why is electricity dangerous?
Friday 22nd May
Here are today’s challenges.
Handwriting- Today I would like you to practise writing all your one-armed robot letters (k,h,b,r,n,m,p). Remember all of these letters start at the top, go down and then back up. As an extra challenge these letters cannot be written with a pencil. I look forward to seeing your creative alternatives.
Physical Education - Practise your throwing and catching skills with a member of your family. Can you make up a new throwing and catching game - maybe you could put a video on tapestry? Write the rules for your game and send them to me or a friend.
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
