Week Beginning 30.03.20
Dear Parents and Children,
I hope you are all staying safe and well at home. I have listed below some homework activities for the next week. Remember that you do not need to be spending hours on each activity, just a short burst.
- Please keep up with daily reading - either the children reading to you, or you reading to them. Maybe you could start a short chapter book to enjoy together, such as a Roald Dahl story.
- Research your favourite animal in either books or online - write a simple fact file about your chosen animal.
- Practice your handwriting. Try the Jumper Family - h,b,n,r,m,p. Think about where you need to start. Are you starting at brave monkey or scared monkey?
- Continue using the websites given last week to ensure that the children are confident in all of the sounds. Practice writing 'tricky words' as regularly as possible.
- Keep up with learning our maths facts - particularly how to count confidently in 2's, 5's and 10's and counting backwards from 20.
- Use any resources you have and practice sharing into equal groups. For example - What is 20 shared between 4? Are your groups equal? What about 19 shared between 4? Are the groups still equal? Now share 12 between 3. Children to count and check that the groups have equal amounts.
- Remember to keep as active as you possibly can! Warm up your body and your brain. Take a look at https://www.cosmickids.com/ for some yoga activities that you can enjoy as a family.
- At our home, we have been particularly enjoying following Joe Wicks on YouTube at 9am to start our day. https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1
- Finally, you could add 'Hampshire Schools Games Organisers' via Facebook or Twitter and follow their daily challenges!
With Easter just around the corner, it would fantastic if you could complete some RE based tasks.
- Read a simple version of the Easter story and draw a story map to explain what happened.
- Research the Paschal candle and create your own one using rolled paper. Add the symbols that you have researched.
