Good morning - it's Fish Finger Friday!
It has been a week now since we saw you and we have thought about you every single day. We really hope that you are safe and
well and that you are all being kind to each other. Have you had time to do some of our learning activities? Here are some new
ideas for you to try today.
Sing the 10 Green Bottles number song - if you would like to watch the Numberblocks sing it again watch it here
Talk to your grown up about what is happening to the numbers
Do you know which number will come next?
What would happen if 2 bottles fell off the wall at the same time?
It is going to be another beautiful sunny day. Why don't you choose your favourite book and read it in the garden in the
sunshine. You could email us a photo. We would love to see what your favourite book is.
Remember you can keep practising your tricky words and watch your Read, Write, Inc phonics lesson.
We hope you have a lovely day xx
We have some challenges for you to do this week:
Phonics (Try to do this every day if you can) - watch with your grown-up so they know how to help you with your phonics.
Read Write Inc. is a scheme that is already familiar to all our children and is something that we use throughout school.
The link attached will direct you to their YouTube channel. On the channel, they are doing LIVE LESSONS at set times throughout the day as follows:
- Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30 am and again at 12.30 pm
- Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00 am and again at 1.00 pm
- Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30 am and again at 1.30 pm
These lessons are live and will not be available to re-watch. Set 1 and Set 2 are the ones we have covered in school already, and these are the ones we want to consolidate this year.
In addition to this, there will also be a live poetry reading each day at 2:00pm for children to join in with. This will be available to watch at a later time.
Maths - try to watch an episode of Numberblocks every day and talk about what happened with your grown-up.
We have already begun talking about subtraction, and how the number gets smaller/less than.
Watch Numberblocks episode - What's the difference? https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0bn57fv/numberblocks-series-3-whats-the-difference
and later in the week episode - The Legend of Big Tum https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0bp2v6x/numberblocks-series-3-the-legend-of-big-tum
Do Maths sheet 1 from the pack that we gave you last week.
Can you find something to count in your house or garden? What would be one less? What would be two less?
Some new maths games have been added on Active Learn:

Playing in your garden is great for developing your muscles, and Joe Wicks is doing a live PE lesson every day on his YouTube channel.
