Maths

Today in maths we are going to we learning about fact families again. To begin with we will recapping on how to write 4 number sentences when we know 1 number sentence.

Phonics

In Key Stage One phonics is taught in phonics groups rather than classes. The phonics groups each work at a different ability level, therefore there are different phonics videos for each group. Your child will know who their phonics teacher is, but if you need clarification please message your child's class teacher on class dojo for confirmation.

Let's have a look at some short comics.

For the first comic, read it through and then can you spot all of the words that contain the letter ih as the "i" sound as in ink and also the "igh" sound like in the word grind?

In this comic, can you spot all of the words that contain the letter o as the "o" sound as in lost and also the "oh" sound like in frozen?

Let's have a look at alternative sounds, this is where a single letter or diagraph (two letters that make one sound) can make multiple different sounds e.g. the letters ow can be used in low and down. Both of the words use the same letters (ow) but each sound is pronounced differently. Try the game below to practise your alternative sounds knowledge by reading words.

After you have opened the link please select, e for the first game and then play again and please select ie for the second game and ea for the third game.

Let's review our tricky words by using the game below. Please select "Phase 5 All HFW" to begin the task.

For our last task we are going to look at sentences. Can you blend the words to read the sentence and then play around with the words to make new sentences?

After you have clicked on the link below, please select the sentence "Kay must pay for her new bike".

For our last task we are going to be focusing on compound words, these are similar to polysyllabic words as they usually have more than 1 syllable except that compound words have to be made of two words separately that come together to make a new word. For example- hand and stand make handstand

Mindfulness

Mindfulness focuses on paying attention to the present moment (thoughts and feelings) as well as the world around you. This can improve mental wellbeing. The link below is to a motivational song that may be familiar to the children. We hope you enjoy listening to the uplifting message of the song.

Task 2: Can you read through the book "Our Class Tiger"? You can do this either independently or use the audio function on eBook.

Let's find the Index and Glossary in the text "Our Class Tiger".

What does a glossary and index do?

A glossary is an alphabetical list of tricky words or phrases from the text with an explaination of what it means.

An index is an alphabetical list of subjects with reference to the pages on which they are mentioned.

Let's try a quiz

2. What information can you find about sanctuaries on page 8?

3. What information can you find on Sumatra on page 11?

4. On what pages would you find the word swimming?

5. What information can you find about cubs on page 15?
