Week beginning: Monday 8th June – Thursday 11th June
Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well. We don’t have long to go until the Summer holidays so keep doing what you can. Continue to keep the work manageable for you and your child and remember if you need to contact me about anything or even to just say hello and fill me in on all the lovely things you have been doing, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I love to hear from you all! I would also love to see some of your Sport’s day photos from this Saturday! Also remember you were to be off school this Friday – so have a day off and enjoy yourselves!!
NEWCOMERS – continue to revise all initial sounds. Continue to work on CVC words. Continue to work on ‘Addition to 5’. See NEEWCOMERS folder in Home School Activities.
LANGUAGE & LITERACY
APPLES – This week will be the last week of spellings and phonics. We will continue to focus on mixed CVC words with lots of practice sounding out and blending the sounds. Continue to work through the CVC booklets at your own pace to help with sounding out, blending and writing CVC words. I have given you one extra activity this week – I spy and read. You may continue to play the games from the IXL website uploaded last week. (Attachments – in Home School Activities/Literacy/CVC words).
PEARS – This week will be the last week of spellings and phonics. We are continuing to revise over our sounds already covered earlier in the year. The sounds for this week are the oo (moon), ay (hay), er (her) and ar (park) sounds. The spellings will be a mix of all four sounds but for those who just wish to stick to 1 or 2 sounds I have given just the ‘oo’ and ‘aw’ sounds (PEARS 2). Do what is manageable!
1.Continue to use the powerpoint to recap on some of the sounds taught this year. There is also a spelling revision activity page for each sound (oo, ay, er, ar). If you wish, you can use the poem/story for each sound previously uploaded (see in each sound folder). Again, if you wish to just stick to one sound this week to revise that is perfectly fine. Do what best suits you and your family!
2.I have also attached a new link to a game on the IXL website.
Remember to try some of the suggested practical ideas with your phonics as well, i.e. paper square work for word building (see below). All linguistics work is in the ‘oo, ay, er, ar sound folder in ‘Home School Activities/Literacy’.
NUMERACY & MATHEMATICS
WORLD AROUND US
We have completed our work on our topic ‘Animals in their Environment’. I hope you all have enjoyed learning about different animals and have remembered some of the facts and information. This week you could record some of the things you have learned about our topic. You may want to record yourself, write a list, draw pictures etc. You could also write 3 facts that you now know about the topic of Animals. I have added a general WAU booklet which includes work on Animals. You may work through this booklet for the remainder of the term at your own pace. It is good for recapping on animals and looking at the different groups of animals. Find attachments in Home School Activities/World Around Us.
PE – The Healthy Kidz Virtual Sports Day is this Saturday 13th June. This week is your chance to practice all the activities from the previous weeks and select your best/favourite activities. Even if you don’t want to submit your times to the Healthy Kidz app you can just have fun at home yourself with the activities. Get the whole family involved and have a great Sport’s day everyone. Remember to send me photos of your sport’s day so I can add them to our photo gallery for others to see.
