Monday 29th June

Good Morning Everyone! If you aren't returning to school today, don't worry - you can find home learning here!

As always - please remember to just manage what you can and take things at your own pace. There is no expectation that you need to complete absolutely everything, everyday.

Good Morning! Time to get active!

Can you follow the England Lionesses' moves in the play-along video to build your strength, agility and stamina like Simba? It's time to find your roar!

Reading/ Phonics

Reception

Today spend time working on your tricky words and high frequency words. I can't emphasise enough the importance of learning these words. The more confident you are with recognising these, the more fluently you will be able to read.

Please try to use your phonics flashcards and tricky word cards every day! Remember to check out our phonics page for creative ways to learn your tricky words.

Year 1

You should be able to read most common exception words/ tricky words up to Phase 5. Play Tricky Word Trucks and select Phase 5. Can you read them all?

Year 2

Complete the 'Crabs' comprehension below. This can be done verbally, discussing answers with an adult, or you can write answers on the sheet provided. Do what works for you! :)

Maths

As we come to the end of the academic year, much of our focus in maths is on consolidation of the curriculum for your year group. This week we're going to apply lots of different mathematical skills in a range of contexts. You're going to have investigations each day which will require you to apply your maths skills. Hopefully you'll also find these investigations really enjoyable!

Reception

Use the NumberBlocks to make these numbers. Which of them can go together to make these totals?

5

10

11

16

13

Can you find more than one way to make each number? What if you combine 3 NumberBlocks?

Year 1 and 2

Can you find all of the possibilities?

Can you find a way to work systematically and record your findings in a logical way?

Writing - Transition Project

Watch my introduction video to find out about this week's writing!

I have tried to make my video lessons accessible for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 this week, so feel free to join in whichever class you're in.

This week your writing is going to be a little bit different. You are going to work on a fact file, adding new information each day, to give to your new teacher for September. This fact file is the perfect opportunity for you to tell your new teacher a little bit more about you!

Hopefully this will be an enjoyable activity and will give you a break from our usual writing routine. I have included a template to the right (the Reception one has larger lines for those who need it). However, you can choose to create your fact file in your own style, without using the template. You might like to use this as an opportunity to be creative! Finished fact files will not be published on the website, but given to the next class teacher of each child.

There will be further information on transition from Mr Rivers soon.

Today

Today, I would like you to fill in the key information box and the family box and then draw a self-portrait! You don't need to send me a picture of each section every day. Just send me the finished fact file at the end of the week! :)

Afternoon - PE

You have been set the challenge of completing Sports Day 2020 at home.

If you haven't already done your Sock Olympics, use your PE slot this afternoon to complete your challenges. All of the information you need is on our school website (click the green button).

If you have been super keen and completed your Sock Olympics already - can you design your own Olympics, using items you can find at home? Come up with 3 or 4 events and consider how they can be scored. Perhaps you could get your family to try out your activities?!

Mindfulness and Well-Being

Every day we will give you a suggested mindfulness or well-being activity. This is just an idea and is optional.

Join in with Mrs Newman for today's mindfulness task.
