Listen to the Gruffalo in Scots
First listen to the Gruffalo story
And then to the Gruffalo in Scots
What is the difference?
Can you understand all the words on the second video? Which words are the same and which ones are different? Could you make a list?
Do you think you could give it a go at describing the Gruffalo using some Scottish words? Here is a list for the adult working with you to help you.
- I am learning that two letters together make one sound.
- I am learning to recognise the diagraph ee
- I am learning to segment, word -build and blend using ee
- I can identify that t and h together make the sound ee (two letters make one sound)
- I can read words that have the sound ee
- I can write words that have the sound ee
- I can identify words that contain the sound ee
Please revise the ee sound from yesterday. Also continue to work on all the sounds worked so far and make words. Ask your child to make words and read them.
This week are: are / they. Please practise spelling and reading these words.
- To practise recognising these words make tricky word flash cards and test each other on reading them!
Letters r and b (for Robert Burns!)
Watch the videos below. You can use a white board or a paper. It is useful for the children to have lines, so they have a reference and they can do all the letters the same size.
- We always start where the dot is, we go from the low left corner of the square to the top right corner of the square.
- We use the lines on the paper to help us to follow.
Today try to read the reading book without support. Take your time, it doesn’t matter if there are words that you find tricky and adult will be able to support you.
If you want you could design a new front cover for your book: remember to include the title and author’s name.
Today’s number brain warm up is to do some number bond to ten practice.
Ask an adult to say any number from 0-10, How quickly can you reply with the partner number? (e.g., adult says 6, child quickly answers 4)
If your child is consistently quick and accurate with pairs to ten, you can try pairs to 20,
To develop strategies including counting on and counting back
I can identify a ‘missing addend’
Now ask an adult to give you some more examples.
You will need – a collection of two different types of small items.
A piece of paper or card to screen the items.
Remember always to explain to your grown up how you worked out the answer.
You and your adult together can choose the level of challenge.
Can you use this skill in an every day situation ?
e.g. There are 4 forks on the table, but 6 people are having tea. How many more forks will I need to get?
You can also login to your sumdog account and try the challenges which we will set for you there. Everyone should have received their sumdog login details by email.
Starter – Discuss with your child what they remember about the story. If you wish to watch the story again, here is the link:
Task: Create a bug hotel.
The story is about caring for all creatures, no matter how small. Show how we can take care of the smallest creatures on the planet by inventing or designing a bug hotel. For example, a ladybug sleeping in a soft, cosy bed or a butterfly cooking yummy food. Be creative and draw/paint/build with your imagination!
