Monday 8th June

Good Morning Class One, I hope you have had a great weekend!

Don't forget the BOOK SWAP today.
(or at 'drop-off' if your child is currently attending school)

Here is some of your Wonderful Work from last week.
Well done everyone and keep up the hard work,
you are all doing brilliantly!
(Click on the 'play' icon and double click no the screen to enlarge).

Do you know which day it is today?
Sing along to find out!

I have found a new fun song for us to practise.
It's about a dog called BINGO!
Remember, you can you send me your videos of your 'groovy moves'
to share with your friends!

Our sound of the week is the 'oi' sound.
Can you remember the 'oi' action? Cup your hands around your mouth,
as if you're a sailor, shouting 'oi'!
Look at this picture and the join in with the clip.

Watch this brief Alphablocks clip all about our 'oi' sound.

Can you robot-talk 'join' and 'coin'? Watch this powerpoint video
practise reading 'oi' words.
(Click on the 'play' icon, then double click on the screen to enlarge).

Now play 'Cross The River' to practise robot talking these 'oi' words:
c/oi/n, f/oi/l, b/oi/l, s/oi/l, 
Now play again. This time write out the words, to make 4 stepping stones. 
Help your teddy to read and cross the river.

Fun with Phonics - Scholes (Elmet) Primary School, Leeds

At the top of the page you can find some worksheets
to practise writing your 'oi' words

Look! I have found a
Jungle Exercise Video.

I wonder which animals you might spot in a jungle? 


Let's practise our number formation to 20 today first.
Use your laminated number sheet (Fountains)
or you can find a worksheet at the top of the page. 

We're going to look at something new today, called 'doubles'
Sometimes I call them 'Number twins'. Double means two of the same thing.
Can you find any 'number twins' or 'doubles' on your body?

Watch this clip to learn some more! To join in, you will need ten bricks.
If you have a 'portable' mirror...even better!
(click on the play icon and then double click on the screen for full-screen).

Now practise making your own doubles. Use a mirror if you have one.
Be a 'Doubles Detective'. Can you make all the doubles up to 5 and count them?

You will find lots of fun worksheets at the top of the page,
to practise making your own doubles. 

Here are some fun ways to practise making doubles!

                    Look! I have found a story for us to join in with.
You might know this one! It's called 
 The Hungry Caterpillar.

You can find lots of colouring, cutting and sorting butterfly and caterpillar
worksheets at the top of our class page.

 Look everyone! Somebody has a beautiful baby sister, Beatrix!
What a fantastic big brother you are!

What exciting news! I have found a story about a new baby.
Maybe you can draw a picture and write a sentence about what
you would do, if you had a new brother or sister?


This week's project

The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about the world’s rainforests. Learning may focus on the plants, animals and insects that inhabit the rainforest, food that originates there and weather patterns. It could look at plants and animals that can be found in the garden too.
Which Animals Live in the Rainforest?
● Watch this video about animals in the rainforest. Can your child tell you about some of the animals that live in the rainforest? Can they remember any facts? Can they describe the animals?.
● Ask your child to make their own explorers outfit (e.g. binoculars, sunhat, backpack) and head out to the garden or on your daily walk. What creatures can your child find? Are they similar to any you might see in the rainforest? Take photographs.
Draw a Picture of a Rainforest Animal on the Computer.
● Ask your child to draw a picture of a rainforest animal. Can they use computing software to recreate their picture? Try Paint.
Play the Animal Jungle Quiz.
● Listen to the clues. Can you match the clue to the correct animal?
Create your own jungle.
Drag the animals onto the picture. Where do you think the animals should go? Why? i.e. on the ground, in the trees…
● Use collage to create your own rainforest animal using recycled materials from around the house. Share your finished creation to inspire others on Twitter at #TheLearningProjects.
Make an Animal Home.
● Create an animal home e.g. a bug hotel using things from the garden. Use a plastic tub or cardboard box. Ask your child what the animal will need in the home in order to survive.
STEM Learning Opportunities #sciencefromhome Rainforest Materials
● A rainforest has lots of tall trees and grows in warm countries that have a lot of rain. People use the wood from the trees to make paper and furniture. They also take lots of ingredients like sugar and oil to make food. Here you can find a list of food and ingredients that grow in rainforests.
● What plants can we find in the garden? Can you name the different parts of a plant? Stem, leaves, branches, roots, flower? Try using some of the material found in your garden to make something useful. For example, a nature paint brush. Additional learning resources parents may wish to engage with White Rose Maths online maths lessons. Watch a lesson video and complete the worksheet (can be downloaded and completed digitally).

Have a great week, everyone!
Love from Mrs Hebblewhite, Fred the Ted, Boris and Croccy! xxx
