Remember to take regular learning breaks throughout the day and to do your daily reading at a time that suits you and your adult.

 

Thank-you for all the work you have been sending me. I always love to see your work and photographs - a big well done to you all. Have a super learning day today.

Session 1 - Literacy

  • We are going to be looking at a non-fiction book in our literacy session today. I have allocated the book, 'Different Homes' by Vicky Shipton onto your Bug Club accounts. Please login and find this book on your Bug Club.
  • This is a non-fiction book so it has different features to a fiction book. Photographs are used instead of illustrations, there is a contents page, headings and labels on some pages and at the back there is a glossary.
  • Read the book with your adult and discuss the different homes that you can see. I particularly likes the 'Strange Homes' on pages 4 and 5, especially the giant boot house in America.
  • As you read, make sure you read the labels and captions on each page as well as the main text.
  • After reading, look at the Glossary at the end of the book. There are some new words listed here and their meanings. Can you remember these words and discuss what they mean with your adult; energy, reflects, ridge, sett?
  • After reading the book, please choose your favourite house. My favourite is  the giant boot house because it looks just like a boot. Discuss with your adult your favourite house and say why you have chosen it as your favourite.
  • Draw a picture of your favourite house and write your own labels / captions to go with it. We are trying to sound out our own words when writing, so say each word clearly and listen carefully for the sounds in words.
  • I look forward to seeing your pictures of the different houses. I wonder which one will be your favourite.
Session 2 - Phonics
  • Let's start by identifying the initial sound of each word. Look around your house and name different objects i.e. window, door, plate etc. Say the sound that each word begins with i.e. window begins with the 'w', door begins with the 'd', 'p' for plate etc.
  • Click on the video below to say all the speed sounds that we know so far.

  • Read the tricky words that we have been learning. How many words do you know? We are going to be focussing on the tricky word, 'they'. Write this word on some paper and read it with your adult. Then cover the word and have a go at spelling it. Did you spell it correctly?
  • Ask your adult to write down other tricky words that we have covered so far i.e. to, the, go, I, no, into.
  • Read these words and then have a go at spelling them.
  • Well done everyone - another super phonic lesson. I am really impressed with all the phonic work you are sending in from home. 
Lunch Time - Have a delicious lunch everyone and a well deserved learning break.

Session 3 - Mathematics

  • We are going to be learning the names of solid (3D shapes) today. Click on the video below to see the shapes and to name them.
