EXTRA TRICKY 

 

Numeracy

Today we would like you to follow the link below and complete the activity. Once each activity has been done, you can write the number sentence in your jotter.

 

Wednesday 12.5.21 

Numeracy

Today we are going to continue to think about 'doubling'. Remember doubling means adding 'the same again'. 

 

Draw a ladybird on a blank piece of paper. Ask a grown up to place a number of objects on one half of the blank ladybird. Can you then double the amount by placing the same number of objects on the other side? How many have you get at the end?

Now repeat the activity with different amounts up to and including double 5.

Today we are going to write about what Jasper did on Monday and Tuesday in our own words. Can you remember?

In your jotter write the heading Monday and then can you have a go at writing 'he had a seed' and for Tuesday can you write 'he put it in the mud/soil'

 

Phonics - Mr Klair's Group 

Today we are recapping 'ch' 'sh' remember to look for the digraph first and then blend the phonemes to say the word. 

 

After that there are some sentences to read as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If your child is ready for the an extra challenge then they can try the phonics below:- these contain non-sense words, these words are designed to aid blending skills

 

Miss Gordon/Mrs Wirth's Group

Today we are looking at tricky words, remember these are words. Use the roll and read below to practise 

 

Miss Allen's group 

 

Today we are going to be looking at the tricky words we have learnt so far. Play roll and read and practice reading the tricky words. Remember, a tricky word is a word we can't blend or segment, we just have to remember it. 

 

 

 

 

Tuesday 11/05/21

Literacy

Today we would like you to retell the story of Jasper and the Beanstalk. We would like you to do this by Making a Film: Jasper’s Beanstalk is a relatively simple story that only contains one character and is based in one location, which makes it an ideal choice to make into a film. All you need is a camera with the capacity to record video, a toy cat (or you could draw a cat and make your own puppet) and a selection of garden tools, if you do not have any tools, you can always be creative, for example, use a fork for a rake, a spoon for a spade. These can be recorded in smaller clips i.e. one clip for Monday, one clip for Tuesday etc. 

 

If you are unable to record the retell, do not worry. Retell the story without recording it, but do try and use some props.

 

Numeracy 

Today we would like you to carry on looking at doubling. If you can't find a box, use a similar container. As an extra challenge, can you write the double as a addition sentence, for example, 2+2 = 4 

 

Phonics 

Miss Allen's Phonics 

 

Today we are going to be blending. Look at the words below. Use your blending skills to read each of them. Once you have successfully read the word you can add a counter to your rocket. The aim is to fill the rocket so that it is ready for blast off!

This is Gustav Holst. He was an English composer, which means that he wrote music for orchestras to play. He lived a long time ago; he was born over 150 years ago. He lived until he was 59 years old. Gustav Holst wrote 7 pieces of music, about 7 of the planets. It took him 2 years to complete. Here is the music that Holst wrote about Jupiter.

 

We would like you to listen to the music and think about how it makes you feel. After you have listened to the music, write some of your feelings down in a list.

We have looked at 3 ways of using your part part whole model for addition.

 

-We have chosen numbers and represented the amount using objects to find the total.

-We have put amounts into a 10 frame and then used our part part whole to find the total.

-We have read number sentences and solved them using a part part whole model. 

 

Today we would like you to chose the method you feel least confident with and practise this one. All of the resources you need are included in your pack.

Using your part whole model and your objects we would like you to have a go at working out the number sentences below. For example, if the number sentence was 5 + 3 = you would put 5 objects in one 'part' and 3 objects in the other 'part'. Then you would add the two parts together to find the 'whole' using your model, just like you did on Monday. 

 

Complete these number sentences using your part whole model. 

 

3 + 2 =

Home Learning 13.01.21

This week we have been thinking about different types of transport. 

 

Watch the video below. After watching the video tell your grown up one fact that you learnt about transport. 

 

 

History of Transport

Can you imagine a world without any vehicles, ships, or airplanes? Well, that's what traveling used to be like many years ago! What came first bikes or cars?...

If you are in Miss Allen's phonics group or Mrs Marren's we would like you to practise recognising the following tricky words: 

I no go

Tricky words are words we cannot blend so we just have to remember them.

 

Once you have practised saying the tricky words we would like you to play roll and read. We have included some other tricky words we have learnt so far. 

If you are in Miss Gordon/Mrs Wirth's phonics group we would like you to practise your segmenting skills. We use our segmenting skills to help us write words. 

 

Remember your steps for learning:

-say it

-count it 

-write it

-blend it

-check it 

 

Can you write the words using your segmenting skills? Write these words in your jotters.

answers: 

map, mad, pat, dad, dip, man, tin, pip

If you are in Mr Klair's phonics group we would like you to practise recognising the following tricky words:

I no go to the it is in

A tricky word is a word that you cannot blend so we have to remember it. 

 

Once you have practised recognising the tricky words play roll and read. We have included some additional tricky words that you have already learnt too. 

 

 

If your child does not feel confident after they have completed an activity, please repeat the activity the following day, before moving on.

Before beginning the main activity below, we would like you to complete the 'counting objects' sheet which was included in your pack.

Watch the video below and listen carefully. 

 

Once you have watched the video use your number line which was included in your pack.

 

Get your grown up to put something (lego brick, penny, counter etc) on a number; can you move the object to the number that is 1 more?

 

After you feel confident doing this, can you say the number that is one more, without moving the object? If you’re super confident move onto 20.

Remember to use your segmenting skills when writing each word. 

-say it 

-count it 

-write it 

-blend it (read it) 

-check it 

If you are in Mrs Marren's phonics group we would like you to practise forming the graphemes: 

s a t p 

 

You could form them in your jotters with a pencil or can you find some other exciting ways to form your letters? You could try forming them with chalk, a wet paintbrush on the floor outside or in some flour or sand. 

If you are in Miss Allen's phonics group we would like you to practise forming the graphemes:

Yesterday we learnt what 'greater than', 'less than' and 'the same' means. 

 

Today we would like you to work with your grown up with this challenge.

 

Your grown up will gather an amount of objects (any amount from 1-10 - you could use items such as buttons, pasta shapes, toys etc) We then would like you to collect another amount of objects that is 'greater than' your grown ups amount, then 'less than' your grown ups amount, and finally 'the same' as your grown ups amount. 

 

Don't forget to count your objects carefully to check you have the right amount.

This week the children have been learning about the festival of Diwali and how it is celebrated around the world. We learnt that during this time Sikhs and Hindus may create Rangoli patterns using rice or chalk. 

 

Foundation A and B enjoyed making their own beautiful Rangoli patterns using chalk. 

FA's Rangoli Patterns

The children have been busy this term settling into the EYFS Unit

FC Sukkot building

Foundation A enjoyed making Sukkahs after learning about the Jewish festival of Sukkot. 

On Friday FB made Sukkahs when we learnt about the Jewish festival Sukkot.

Foundation B have been really busy since starting school!

P.E

 

Each class in Foundation Stage 2 have one session of P.E a week. Currently the children do not need to change into P.E kits, however, we do ask that they are dressed appropriately for P.E with earrings removed. 

 

Our P.E days 

 

Foundation A (Miss Allen) - Friday 

Foundation B (Miss Gordon and Mrs Wirth) - Wednesday 

Foundation C (Mr Klair) - Tuesday 

 

Phonics

We teach children to read by blending sounds and write by segmenting sounds.

 

Blending  means combining sounds to make a word. Divide the word into the individual sounds. For example /s/ /i/ /t/

 

Segmenting means using knowledge of sounds to break it down to /p/ /i/ /n/ in order to write the word.

 

 

Below are some high frequency words and tricky words which children are to learn to read onsight
