Week beginning 13th July
This week I'd like you to carry on with your own learning about mini beasts. You can choose an insect to learn about in more detail or find out about lots of different ones - the choice is yours!
Remember to take some photos of your learning to send me or you can stick your work into your 'snail' project book that we started in class.
There is a PDF down below in the 'other' section with tasks for you to complete this week.
Pupils: continue to read daily to an adult or an older sibling for 10 minutes. This could be your school reading book or another home book of your own choice. Remember to record this in your school reading diary. Even better, take a photo to show me what you are reading! You could also read an ebook on Oxford Owl, Collins Big Cats or use your EPIC login.
Adults: remember to ask questions about the text both as you go along and at the end. Ask your child to think of a different ending or predict what might happen when the story is over. Talk about the setting, characters, meaning of new words and enjoyment of the story.
This week we have some extra reading activities based around the story 'Open Very Carefully'. You can find this at: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/open-very-carefully/
There is an activity to complete every day. This can be in addition to your daily reading.
There is a PDF below which shows the activities for the week. As some children will be returning to school and we are able to see more of our family and friends, this week we are thinking about what makes us amazing.
The spellings this term will focus on being able to write the common or tricky words which are useful to be able to spell before entering year 2. I have added a list of these below. Please add/change the spellings to fit your own child's needs and abilities.
Continue to work on the following skills throughout the week in short bursts as these are great skills to take into year 2.
Count up to 100 in 1s forwards and backwards
Count in 2s, 5s, 10s
Practice quick mental recall of your bonds to 10, both addition and subtraction
Write the numbers 0-10 as words
Find 1 more/less than a number up to 100
As always allow your child to use resources to help them solve problems such as number lines, hundred grid, pasta, buttons, stones.
I have added some number lines and 100 grids for those who may need them.
Extra activities this week
Week beginning 13th July
Make a memory jar of your time in JOY class.
Over the last year, your child will have created many school memories that they will cherish forever. Capture these memories in a fun way by asking your child to create a ‘Memory Jar’. Using coloured paper ask your child to draw or write down their favourite memories. They can use different colours to show different categories of memory e.g. blue for friendship, yellow for teachers, red for favourite lessons, green for school trips. Use a jam jar or a plastic bottle to collect their memories; they could even personalise their jar with decoration
Family Friday – enjoy some family time today!
