Thursday

Hello everyone!  Please find your activities for today down below, take part, enjoy and don't forget to send your pictures to me on twitter!

 

Phonics

Please join in with the daily RWI sessions on YouTube (link below). Each lesson is available for 24 hours so you can access it at whatever time is best for you. Each session has 3 parts which all link together, it would be fantastic if you completed each part. For set 1 sounds they should be completed in this order:

1. Speed sound lesson.

2. Word time lesson.

3. Spelling lesson.

If you are up for a challenge and already fully confident with your set 1 sounds (including writing words) you should access the set 2 sound and spelling lessons. I would be so pleased to see some of your fantastic writing, so if you could send it to the school twitter it would make me very happy.

 

Extra Challenge

Watch the tricky words youtube video on the link below. Sing along and then write a list of the tricky words. Can you use one in a sentence?

 

Reading

As well as your reading during your phonics sessions I would love if you could read a book at home with someone, can you sound out some of the words? Can you find any tricky words? You can also access e-books on the Oxford Owl website for free! You just need to create a log in. Follow the link below and sign yourself up and select age range 4-5 and get reading! Today I am challenging you to reading a RWI book independently, today try 'The Trunk and the Skunk'. Can you read the words by using Fred in your head? Can you find any special friends?

 

Maths

Before you start today's activity have a go at the powerpoint quiz below. How many shapes could you identify? Now you know so much about 3D shapes it's time we learnt to describe them using mathematical language. We have already done this for 2D shapes and you are great at it! So the properties of 3D shapes are:

  • Faces - A face is a flat or curved surface on a 3D shape. For example a cube has six faces, a cylinder has three and a sphere has just one.
  • Edges - An edge is where two faces meet. For example a cube has 12 edges, a cylinder has two and a sphere has none.
  • Vertices - A vertex is a corner where edges meet. The plural is vertices. For example a cube has eight vertices, a cone has one vertex and a sphere has none.

Using some of the shapes/objects you found around your house try and find each of the properties. Can you count how many faces each object has? Does it have any edges? (edges are long you should be able to run your finger down it) What about vertices? These are pointy!

 

Come and See

Topic - Pentecost

On Monday you read The Jolly Postman by Janet & Allan Ahlberg (if you missed this go to Mondays page and click on the youtube link) and you shared your good news with each other and looked at pictures, cards and other items which reminded you of your good news. Today I would like you to write a good news letter, email or text message to a friend, teacher or family. You can send this in via twitter. We would love to see it. 

 

Physical Development/Health and Self Care/Understanding

I'm sure lots of you have been busy during your outdoor time whilst we have had such lovely weather. Has anyone been riding their bike? Do you know how to keep safe when riding your bike? Find the 'cycle safety activity' link below and see if you know how to keep safe when riding your bike.

 

Picture News

I have added this weeks picture news to the main home learning page, can you complete some of the activities? Read the question and give your opinion. The picture news activities will really get your brain working and I would love for you to have ago at it, possibly one small activity each day and let me know some of the ideas and thoughts you have. I will add a new picture and new activities for it each week.

 

Please find any links to websites I mention at the bottom of this page or on the main home learning page. 

 

Keep up the super work and keep sending me pictures to make me smile! I’ll be back tomorrow with more challenges for you all.
Take care, Miss Pinnington.
