Learning Together at Home

23/03/2020

Hello Warty Gruffalos and welcome to our online classroom!

I hope you have had a lovely weekend with your families and are ready to continue learning and having fun together.

We will be posting daily at 12.00 to give you ideas for ‘learning together at home’.

Please use this blog to support you at home – work at your own pace and find a way that works for you and your family. You will not be asked to provide any evidence of your learning and there is no pressure to do all the tasks – the blog posts are designed to be supportive so please use them in a way that works for you!

Please feel free to email a photo of your learning at home and let me know if you are happy for me to put it on our Friday blog post – it will be lovely to see some photos of each other and stay connected!

I will post ideas for Literacy, Numeracy, Health & Wellbeing and keeping active at home!

 

To start we will be revising previous learning.

 

Let’s begin…………………

Literacy

Reading

Reading – We are learning to identify verbs.

Clink the link below to watch a clip recapping what verbs are. There is also a sentence activity and short quiz to try too.

Read one of your reading books and see if you can spot any verbs (doing/action words).

Also try reading a story of your choice to your teddy/sibling/mummy/daddy – remember to look out for verbs.

Spelling

Your child knows which block of tricky words they are working on – all blocks were handed out in the packs but there is also a copy on P2G’s blog dated 07.02.20.

Spelling – We are learning to read and spell our tricky words.

Write your spelling words like a rainbow, then read them and get someone at home to give you a spelling check-up.

Example:

Challenge:

Can you put your tricky words into sentences, try writing at least 3 – remember to underline the tricky words.

Example:

Writing/Handwriting

We are learning to write questions and question marks.

Practise writing question marks neatly in your jotter. Can you think of 4 questions to ask your family? Write these in your jotter in your neatest hand writing.

Example:

What game would you like to play?

Star Steps

Remember:

  • Questions are sentences which ask something.
  • They end with a question mark instead of a full stop
  • Use question words at the beginning of your sentence. Here are examples of question words: who, when, where, what and how.

 

Numeracy and Maths

Mental Maths

We are learning to understand different adding and subtracting vocabulary.

Play the Mental Maths Train game below choosing addition and/or subtraction.

Numeracy

We are learning to identify numbers 1 more/1 less and 10 more/10 less than a given number.

*Remember you can use your 100 squares from your packs to help you.

Please find below a game and a worksheet to support your learning:

Inter Disciplinary Learning/Skills

Spring officially began on Friday 20th March. The days are now getting longer and lighter and hopefully a little warmer! If possible, go out for a walk with an adult or into your garden or even just have a look out of your window. Can you see any signs that spring is in the air? What can you see, smell and hear? Can you see any flowers, hear birds singing, maybe even spot a bumble bee?

Have a chat about what we see in spring. You can use the link below to draw a colourful and detailed picture or do it in your jotter/on a piece of paper. Then write a sentence about what you have drawn. Remember to use capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and neat hand writing.

Some fun Ideas

If you have any questions about the ideas provided, please send these to the school admin email and I will be happy to help you with anything.

Remember to be Ready, Respectful and Safe at home too and make time to explore through play. Good luck, have a lovely day and enjoy the learning we have provided. 

Thank you for your continued support in your child’s learning,

Mrs Williamson and Mrs Graham 😊
