Wednesday  1st April

Good Morning Class One! Happy April Fool's Day! Are you going to play a trick on Mummy and Daddy today?!

READING BOOK SWAP - FRIDAY 3RD APRIL AT SCHOOL

Every three weeks you will have the opportunity to swap your child's pack of reading books. However, with two weeks of holidays approaching, we will be making our first swap a little sooner, this Friday. The swap is entirely optional and you don't need to have read all your books to participate. If you would like to join in, the more the merrier! In order to maintain social distancing, there will be a plastic tub outside Class One's door, where you will be able to leave your pack between 9am-12pm and pick up another between 12-3.30pm. Although this will involve two trips out, hopefully this will mean that there will always be at least one pack to swap with. Please can you pop a piece of paper in with your pack, labelled with your child's name, in order to differentiate between them, e.g. Daisy's Pack.

 

We appreciate that this system may be tricky for those of you who are not near to school, and if you're not able to swap your pack, perhaps you would like to sign up to our Class's account with Epic Books, which is an app that will provide further opporunities for your child to read books at their level and on topics of their interest. Signing up involves Epic Books sending you an invitation via email, therefore I will need your consent, in order to register your child, which you could send me on your next EvidenceMe observation or via the school office.

Here are our jobs for today:

 

Keep practising our dance from last week - perhaps you could send me a video of your dancing, to show your friends!

Phonics 

  • Here are some 'Yes/No' questions for you to read today! Why not send me one of yours for tomorrow, using the sounds we have learnt so far!

  • Can you remember our new sound, 'ur'? Can you remember the action (like an electric mixer!).
  • Make a 'ur' password for your bedroom and some of the rooms in your house. Each time you or someone in your family enters or leaves the room today, they must read your password! You could draw a picture next to your word. Don't forget your sound buttons and bars! Can you send me your password, to upload on the webpage?

Maths

This week we are practising our numbers to 20 and learning how to recognise and order the numerals.
  •  Practise counting to 20 and back with our class powerpoint! Can you spot your number?

  • Play'Bunny Ears': Grown-ups - With both hands on top of your head, use the fingers on each hand to make a number bond to 5, e.g. show 2 fingers on one hand and 3 on another. Ask your child to tell you the number, copy your fingers and tell you their 'Number sentence' (including 'add' and 'equals'). Ask them to try to find another way of making 5. For a challenge, play bunny ears to 10. 
  • Play 'The Circles Game!'. While your grown-up counts to 20, you must draw as many circles as you can. Count your circles and write your score in the corner of your paper. Swap over and ask your grown-up to draw hexagons! Can they beat your score?!
 

Music

Mrs Atkinson, who will be teaching us music after Easter has uploaded a fun music lesson onto the website, which you might like to join in with. She will send a new lesson every week, which you will be able to find on the school's home page.

Projects

The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about the area in which they live. Learning may focus on your local area, famous people, key landmarks and links to your city.

● The rooms in my house- ○ Support your child to create a map or cross section of their home. Can they name all of the rooms? An adult could hide an object in a room and mark where it is on the child’s map. Can they use their map to find the hidden object? Label each room using phonics knowledge. ○ Gather an object from each room and challenge your child to return them to the appropriate room e.g. toothbrush from the bathroom, teddy from their bedroom. ○ Hide objects around the room and describe where it is e.g. “it’s under something red” Can your child hide an object and describe where it is for you to find?

● Go on a numeral hunt- ○ Search for numerals around the house (clocks, books, house numbers, car registrations, oven, washing machine). Can they record the numerals on paper?

● Find your house on google maps- ○ Explore using google maps to look at your house from above and on street view. Use the arrows to move up and down the road and around your area. Can they find key places e.g. the corner shop, their school, grandparents houses. ○ Search for a house in a different part of the world and discuss how it is similar or different to your own. You could use places children have visited on holiday or search places that are significantly different.

● Junk model your house- ○ Using old packaging (shoe box, cereal box etc.) support your child to make a model of your house. Can they count how many windows there are and stick on the right amount? Can they write their house number on the front? ○ Junk model your dream house. Use materials from around your house to decorate e.g. old wallpaper, fabric, wool. 

● Use construction blocks to build your house- ○ Using lego, duplo, wooden blocks make a model of your house. Can they add in the rooms and doors in the right places? Write labels to match each room on pieces of paper. ○ Build your dream house out of construction blocks.

● Create a furniture collage- ○ Using old magazines and catalogues support your child to cut out and stick or sort objects into the room they would belong in. Support your child to use the correct scissor grip using this guide.

● Exploring with your senses- ○ Gather a collection of household objects e.g. fork, cup, toothbrush, teddy bear, book and show your child. Use a scarf/ material as a blindfold and pass your child one of the objects. Can they figure out what it is through touch alone? Give clues if they are struggling. Swap roles and ask your child to give you an object to figure out. ○ Explore the textures around your house. Can children find something rough, smooth, bumpy.They could take a wax rubbing of each texture (Lay a piece of paper over the top and rub over with the side of a crayon). You could continue this into the garden.
