Today in maths we are doing to be solving addition word problems and using out understanding of the methods to add to find the answers. In school we usually would get out magnifying glasses out and hunt for clues.
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.

Our Music lessons are themed alongside our topic of Dinosaurs. We will build upon on the skills and knowledge in music each week.
In today's session we will be learning a dinosaur rap and using some "instruments" to help us play the beat too.
Task 1: Let's learn the dinosaur rap. Click on the link below to view the dinosaur rap video.
You can pause and rewind the video as many times as you like to learn the lyrics (the words that go with the melody).
Task 2: Can you put some actions with your dinosaur rap that match what the lyrics are saying?
Task 3: Can you be resourceful and create a musical instrument at home? Have a look at the pictures below for some ideas. Once, you have an instrument can you try to follow the beat of the dinosaur rap whilst singing the lyrics?
Task 4: Performance time! Can you record or take pictures of your performance? Try to include yourself singing the lyrics, doing some actions to match the lyrics and using your instrument to show the beat of the rap too.
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 image below describes how to carry out a calming mindfulness activity.
Shared reading involves children joining in with the reading and comprehension of a text whilst guided and supported by an adult. The text can be read by an adult if it is tricky or the child can read it themselves. The reader should be encouraged to use expression in voice and note the features of the text e.g. the title, any illustrations, the author/ illustrator and the structure of the text. Shared reading aims to improve comprehension skills known as VIPERS (vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval of information and sequencing). During shared reading the children are encouraged to ask and answer comprehension questions either verbally or in written form and any feedback about the text should be encouraged and discussed.
