First we are going to practice reading some Phase 4 words. Some of these words you can sound out, but others are tricky words, so you will need to sight read them.

Today's job is to sing the alphabet song using your alphabet strip to help you. Make sure you point to each sound as you go along.

 

Maths

Today, we are going to be looking at ‘sharing’

Sharing is different to halving as halving is between 2 toys and sharing can be between more than 2 toys.

Collects 3 toys and a group of objects. Share the objects between the 3 toys. Make sure that it is still fair!

 

Extra Activity

Look at the life cycle of a butterfly PowerPoint again and focus on the facts at the end. Use some of the facts to write a sentence about a butterfly.

E.G. ‘They taste with their feet.’ Don’t forget to count the words in your sentence using your fingers. Then use a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop.

 

We hope you are all well and keeping safe!

Today we are going to continue our alphabet strip.

Take the alphabet strip that you started yesterday.

Today we are only going to write the upper case letters from A - Z underneath the lower case letters we wrote yesterday. 

E.g. a  b c d

      A B C D

If you have room, you could even draw a picture of something beginning with that letter.

 

Maths

Collect a group of objects or food and choose a favourite teddy.

Halve the food between you and your teddy, so that it is fair. That means that you both have an equal (the same) amount. You have half each!

 

Jerry the Sheep and Matthew Mole had 6 tea cakes to share.  They halved the 6 tea cakes. How many did they each get?  Half of 6 is 3!

(Don't worry, Mrs Clarke had a word with them about healthy eating and not ending up feeling sick like the Hungry Caterpillar!wink)

 

Extra Activity

 

Look at the Hungry Caterpillar. He is feeling a bit sick!

Write a sentence about the Hungry Caterpillar.

E.G. ‘He is sick because …’

Don’t forget to count the words in your sentence on your finger. Then use a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop. 

 

We hope you are all well and keeping safe!
