English - The Squirrels that Squabbled
For today's English home learning, I would like you to listen to the reading of the story of The Squirrels that Squabbled which I will upload after our story session, which is attached below. I would like you to share the story with your grown up. Once you have finished listening the story, I would like you to answer the following questions, with your grown up:
1. Where is the story set? (The place – where are we?) Where are we? Are we in a park, a forest. Point to some of the features in the pictures on the board and conclude where the story is set.
2. Who are the characters in the story? (People or Animals – who is the story about?) Who do you think is the main characters or the most important character that the story is based around?
3. Which characters are good or bad? Why do you think this? Identify some of the different characters and discuss whether they are good or bad.
I look forward to hearing what you have learnt after reading the story of The Squirrels that Squabbled.
Maths - 2-D Shapes
For today's maths home learning we will be beginning to look at the concept of 2-d shapes. I would like you to being by looking at the power-point which will show you all the different types of 2-d shapes. I have attached the 2-d shapes power-point below.
I would like you to go on a 2-d shape hunt around the house and I would like you see if you can find as many of the 2-d shapes which are included on the power-point. Once, you have found the shapes, I would like you to take a picture of all the 2-d shapes you have found.
I look forward to seeing all the 3-d shapes you have found around the house, on Tapestry.
Understanding of the World - Habitats
For today's home learning, I would like you to look at different woodland creatures and their habitats (where they live) in the woods.
I would like you to look at the different habitats on the power-point. Once you have look at the different habitats, I would like you to sort the creatures the different habitats. You can either cut the animals and stick them onto their habitats or your can draw the animals in their different habitats.
I look forward to seeing your hard work on Tapestry.
Phonics 'air' sound
For today's home learning, I would like you to revise the 'air' sound. I would like you to practise saying the sounds:
Remember the rhymes are as follows:
'air' - that's not fair
I would then I like you to practise writing some simple sentences with the words with both these sounds in them.
'air' words - fair, pair, stair, lair, air
An example sentence would be:
'If there are two, that's a pair'
I look forward to seeing all your hard work on Tapestry.
Phonics 'r' sound
For today's sound we are going to be recapping the 'r' sound. First, I would like you to practise saying the sound and the rhyme, remember first you need to say, 'r' and the 'r, down the robot's back and then over his arm.'
Then you need to practise saying the words with 'r' sound in them, which are 'run', 'rest', 'ran' and 'red'. Once you have practise saying the 'r' sound and the words. I would like you to practise writing the 'r' sound.
Then I would like you to practise sound out the word using Fred talk:
red - r - e - d
run - r - u - n
rest - r - e - s - t
ran - r - a - n
I look forward to seeing all your hard work on Tapestry. I have attached the link to video for the 'r' sound for you to use whilst you are learning you are sounds.
