Good Morning

I hope that you're all well. Thank you to those that have sent me photos and videos from last week. You should have received a reply from me. Here are this week's activities for you to have a go at.

Keep safe and well.

Mrs Coll

 

Each week:

 

All parents are invited to send photos and descriptions to 2Simple to inform their child’s profiles. Please email inbox@2buildaprofile.com or reply to Friday’s emails.

 

 

Choose a recipe and help a grown up to bake it. See if you can be in charge of the measuring/ Can you read the recipe book and measure the ingredients correctly?

Write an email to your teacher to tell them what you’ve been doing. Maybe you can send a photo. Your teacher will write back!

Go outside for a walk and notice signs of Spring. Can you find buds on trees, flowers growing, baby animals? Take a photo or draw what you find.

Ask a grown up to show you how to make paper aeroplanes or use YouTube to help. Test them outside and measure the distance with a tape measure. Which one goes the furthest?

Make an obstacle course outside like Ninja Warrior. What can you use to travel over, under and through? Time yourself to complete the challenges using a grown ups timer. Can you improve your time?

Draw, paint or make a model of a spring flower.

 

 

 

Maths – spatial awareness

 

Day 1

Please stay familiar with naming the numbers to 20 and being able to put them in order.

I always say to the children that a good counter can count on or backwards from any number (it doesn’t always have to be from 1). Challenge your child to count on from a number. Show a keyring number at random and ask them to count up or backwards from that number.

 

Learning about positional language (where things are.) Talk about where things are in the house. E.g. The photograph is on the shelf.  The toy is inside the box. Can they hide something and then give you clues?

 

TO BEGIN WITH THE CHILDREN MAY JUST RESPOND WITH “IT’S THERE” AND POINT. ENCOURAGE THEM TO USE LANGUAGE TO GIVE CLUES.

 

Choose something to hide and give the child clues about where it is. E.g. it is in the living room. It is next to the window. It is behind the chair etc.

 

Positional words are – up, down, next to, besides, under, on top, behind, in front of etc.

 

 

Day

2

Please stay familiar with naming the numbers to 20 and being able to put them in order.

I always say to the children that a good counter can count on or backwards from any number (it doesn’t always have to be from 1). Challenge your child to count on from a number. Show a keyring number at random and ask them to count up or backwards from that number.

 

Repeat yesterday’s activity but take your child into the garden.

 

 

Day

3

Please stay familiar with naming the numbers to 20 and being able to put them in order.

I always say to the children that a good counter can count on or backwards from any number (it doesn’t always have to be from 1). Challenge your child to count on from a number. Show a keyring number at random and ask them to count up or backwards from that number.

 

Continue with positional language. Use toys at home e.g. a dolls house, train track, farm, dinosaurs. Encourage children to set up their toys and place a play person or object inside. Can they use positional language to describe to a partner where the person is?

 

Day

4

Please stay familiar with naming the numbers to 20 and being able to put them in order.

I always say to the children that a good counter can count on or backwards from any number (it doesn’t always have to be from 1). Challenge your child to count on from a number. Show a keyring number at random and ask them to count up or backwards from that number.

 

Continue with positional language. Call out instructions for children to follow, for example: Stand on the bottom stair, sit in the middle part of the settee, stand behind or in front of the table, lie under the window. Children can then create their own instructions for you to follow

 

 

Day 5

Please stay familiar with naming the numbers to 20 and being able to put them in order.

I always say to the children that a good counter can count on or backwards from any number (it doesn’t always have to be from 1). Challenge your child to count on from a number. Show a keyring number at random and ask them to count up or backwards from that number.

 

Continue with positional language. This session gets the children to think about viewpoints. Can the children use positional language to explain why the teddy can or cannot see different objects? Using paper, can the children draw what teddy is able to see.

 

Explain to the children that you cannot see things behind you without altering your own position (turning your head or your body).

 

Reading/ Writing/ Phonics

 

REGISTER FOR A FREE ACCOUNT WITH TWINKL. https://www.twinkl.co.uk/ There is a wealth of packs and resources that you can use. You do not need access to a printer for all of them. You can keep the work on the screen and use your exercise book to record the work.

 

One writing activity a week - Write about something that you have done in your exercise book.

Take photos and send to 2simple if you would like this adding to their profile.

 

Phonics

Register your child for Oxford Owl online and use their guidance as to how you can support your child. Most children are working on Phase 3, of the Letters and Sounds section, but some children will benefit from looking at Phase 2. https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/what-is-letters-and-sounds/

Watch Mr Mc’s daily phonics lessons on YouTube.

 

Phonics

Day 1

 

Continue to Sing the alphabet – YouTube has lovely animated videos. Choose a different one each day.

 

Choose 5 of the boxes below and write the words in your exercise books. The sound is there to give the children a clue.

 

Day 2

Read and match up the captions to the pictures.

 

Day 3

Can you write the tricky word in your books 3 times?

Day 4

Can you write the words in your exercise book?

Day 5

 

Reading

Access Oxford Owl for free eBooks that are pitched at your child’s ability. There are Read Write Inc books and also Julia Donaldson’s Songbirds books that the children can read online. Read one a week as a minimum. For those children that are not yet accessing a reading book – please read a story to your child but stop and ask them to read every 5th word, for example, (ideally a word that can be sounded out.)
