Phonics

Remind your child of the sound learnt yesterday ‘air’

Download the story ‘Clair at the Fair’ at the top of the screen.

Encourage your child to sound out and blend the words. How many words can you find with the trigraph ‘air’?

Now play ‘Reading Robot’ on Phonics Play. A great way to practise sounding out and blending real and non-real words. Click here to play.

https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/reading-robot

 

 

There will be two sounds that may appear that your child doesn’t know ure and er – just read these words for them.

 

Topic – Mini Beasts

Download and watch the ‘Mini Beast’ PowerPoint at the top of the screen. Ask your child if they have seen these mini beasts before.

Then if it is safe to do so, go on a mini beast hunt with your child. Take out some paper and a pencil, when you find a mini beast get your child to draw it OR if you have a printer download and print the checklist, tick off what you find!

 

 

Remember to wash your hands when you have finished outside!

It would be great to see your child taking part in the Mini Beast Hunt.

Please take photos and send them to me at Receptionhomelearning.derby.sch.uk

 

 

Physical Activity – Yoga

Here is a perfect Cosmic Kids Yoga Story to end the half term.

Remember to have a look at the activities in ‘The Joy of Moving Booklet’ at the top of the page. It would be great if you could do just one activity and send me a photo of your child doing it!

 

I would like to thank you all for the superb job you have done with home learning over the last half term.

You have all been truly amazing! So have an enjoyable and restful week off!

There will be fun activities for you to try on the ‘Half Term Activities’ tab. Click on ‘Subjects’ and you will find it at the bottom of the menu

I'm missing you all very much! Stay safe and take care.

Maths – Doubles

Click on the link to play this doubles game. Press ‘Doubles’ and then ‘Doubles to 10’. Encourage your child to think of the answer mentally but if they are unsure, have some objects such as coins they could use to help them work out the answer.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Now download the ‘Lift the Flap Doubles’ activity sheet at the top of the screen. Cut the sheet as directed, read the doubles number sentence, get your child to write the answer under the flap.

 

Phonics

Today we are going to learn a new sound ‘air’.

Click on the link.

This is a whole phonics lesson (20mins) – just like I would deliver in class. Your child will need to listen to the teacher on the screen and join in when instructed to do so.

It begins with a recap of sounds and then teaches the new sound ‘air’. 

‘air’ is a trigraph – it has three letters that make one sound

If you would prefer to recap the sounds on your sound mat that is fine – pick up the new learning on the video clip at 5 min 58 seconds.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOdSE-ATXI8

Now download the writing ‘air’ words sheet, you don’t have to print the sheet. Ask your child to look at the picture on the screen and then write the word.

Ask your child how many sounds each of the words has? For example the word chair has 2 sounds ‘ch’ and ‘air’.

 

Topic – ICT

There are two activities to do in ‘Mini Mash’ today. Save both pieces in the ‘Butterfly’ tray.

The first activity is to colour a butterfly. As your child draws on one side, it will automatically produce a symmetrical pattern on the other side. Talk to your child about this. Here is my butterfly!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Click on the link  https://www.purplemash.com/#app/pap/animals/butterfly

 

The second activity is to colour and label the life cycle of a butterfly.

Whilst your child is colouring, see what they can remember about the life cycle of a butterfly. Have they remembered key words such as caterpillar, egg and chrysalis?

PE – The Joy of Moving

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have teamed up with Derby County to be part of the ‘Joy of Moving’ Festival.

It would be great to see your child taking part in at least one of the activities. You can download the booklet at the top of the screen.

I would recommend the ‘Scavenger Hunt’ on page 7.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It would be great to see your child taking part in this activity. Please send photos of your child to Receptionhomelearning@bishoplonsdale.derby.sch.uk or upload to Twitter using @bishoplonsdale1 @Joyof MovingUK @EFLTrust @DCCTSuperSchool #JOMHomeFestival

Maths – Doubles

 

Recap all the doubles up to double 10 with your child using the ‘Butterfly Doubles’ PowerPoint at the top of the page. Encourage your child to tell you the answer without counting the spots up to double 5 at least. However, count the spots if they are unsure.

 

 

Now download complete the ‘Butterfly Doubles’ sheet. Spend time ensuring your child is clearly drawing the correct number of spots on the wings, before checking the double.

Challenge: Read the following word problems to you child. Can they identify the double in the problem and work out the answer mentally?

 

Flora invited 10 friends to a party. A magician waved his magic wand and doubled the number. How many friends did Flora have at her party?

There were 7 ducks swimming in the pond. A magician waved his wand and doubled the number. How many ducks are there altogether?

 

 

 

 

Phonics and Reading

Begin by re-visiting the ‘ear’ sound learnt yesterday. Click on the link.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvq9bdm/articles/z4p3pg8

Then use your Phase 3 sound mat to go through all the phase 3 sounds up to ‘ear’. Today you say the sound and your child points to the matching grapheme/letters.

Now download ‘The Meerkat with the Big Ears’ story at the top of the screen. Encourage your child to sound out and blend the words. How many times can you spot ‘ear’?

 

Topic - Science

Yesterday we listened to the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. If you have time listen to the story again. Click below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75NQK-Sm1YY

 

 

 

 

 

Now let’s watch the life cycle of a butterfly, watch the egg turn into a caterpillar, then a chrysalis and finally turn into a butterfly. Click on the link below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcokL7PRrnY

Now download the ‘Life Cycle of a Butterfly’ sheet cut out the pieces. Can your child sequence the pictures correctly? Discuss the lifecycle whilst you do this activity. If you prefer a challenge, download the ‘Life Cycle of a Butterfly’ sheet writing. It still has the cutting activity, but gives your child a chance to practise their writing too!

Extra activity – Healthy Eating

There are some recipes for smoothies at the top of the screen. The fruit used relates to the ‘The Very hungry Caterpillar Story’. A great idea to get your child eating fruit!

Topic and Literacy

This week we will be learning about ‘Mini Beasts’ and the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar.’

 

Watch this short animation of the story by clicking on the link below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75NQK-Sm1YY

 

 

 

 

Now download the discussion sheet at the top of the screen. Ask your child each of the questions. Give them time to think before they answer, if they don’t know straight away, give them a little prompt rather than just tell them the answer.

If you have a printer, print the sheet, write down what your child says and send me a copy Receptionhomelearning@bishoplonsdale.derby.sch.uk

 

Monday 18th May 2020

Good morning everyone! I hope you have all had a good weekend and are ready for another week of teaching and learning at home!

It would be really good if each day your child could spend just 10 minutes on Numbots. I can see how they are progressing in the game and so it keeps me up to date with their maths learning!

 

 

 

 

If you haven’t been on before you will need a username and password, just email me at Receptionhomelearning@bishoplonsdale.derby.sch.uk

The site is https://play.numbots.com and the school postcode is DE22 3HH.

 

As always we will begin the week by waking up our bodies!

There is now a ‘Go Noodle’ app available on Apple and Android. There are over 300 songs, dance routines and exercises for your child and it’s free

 

 

 

 

Maths – Doubles

This week we are going to focus on doubling. The children have already done some work on doubles at school.

Begin by counting out two objects, you could use coins or pencils. Then count out two more, explain to your child you have doubled the number. Ask them how many there are altogether. Then say ‘double 2 is 4’. Get your child to repeat this.

Then count out three objects and repeat the above. Ensure your child clearly says ‘double 3 is 6’.

Now download the ‘Ladybird Doubles to 10’ sheet at the top of the page. Encourage your child to count the spots, double the number of spots. How many altogether?

Challenge: If your child completes the activity easily then have a go at these doubling problems, also at the top of the page.
