Literacy

This week we will reading 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen. We are going to be learning about WOW words and descriptions of settings in the story, using drama and sequencing the different parts of the story. We will also be writing our own sentences.

 

Remember, we love to see the children have a good try with their writing, using their phonics. This means that the spelling may not always be correct but shows that the children are using what they know and building skills. For some children, this may look like a collection of letters or lines on the page, for others this will be a sentence with words separated with finger spaces. We love to see it all! Just try your best! 

 

Monday - Read the story. Think about the amazing descriptions and sound words. Think of other words to describe what each setting is like. Draw a picture of your favourite part and label it using amazing WOW words!  
Tuesday- Act out your own version of 'Bear Hunt'. What will you keep the same and what will you change? Perhaps you could go on a bear hunt when out on a walk! Use lots of describing words as you hunt! 

Wednesday- Write a sentence about a setting in the story using an adjective.

Eg. 'The long grass is swishy.' 

Thursday- Write a sentence describing how you travel on your hunt. Try and use a verb. Eg. 'I can stomp in the thick mud.' 
Friday- Sequence the pictures from the story in the right order. 

 

 

Phonics

This week we are going to learn the digraphs ai, ee, igh and oa as well as using all the previously learnt letter sounds. We will also be learning about syllables in words. 

 

Monday - Digraph ai - watch Geraldine. Go on a hunt for items with ai in the word. Make a RAINY picture and label it. 

Tuesday - Digraph ee - watch Geraldine. Go on a hunt for items with ee in the word. Draw a bee picture and label it or complete the sheet. 

Wednesday - Trigraph igh - watch Geraldine. Go on a hunt for items with igh in the word.

Thursday - Digraph oa- watch Geraldine. Go on a hunt for items with oa in the word. Draw op in a boat and label it. 

Friday - Listen to 2 syllable words. Cut up the words and pictures to match them.

Maths

This week in Maths, we will be learning to use our clever maths words to describe position. This includes using words like above, on top, below, under, in front, behind, over, forward and backwards. Towards the end of the week, we will be starting to look at the area of money. 

 

Monday- Take a teddy bear on an adventure around your home - put him in different places and describe where he is using positional language. Eg. He is behind the bed.' 
Tuesday- Give instructions to your grown up to place toys in different places. Use clever positional language to describe where it should go. Eg. 'Put the blue car in front of the red car.' 
Wednesday- Have a go at sorting different coins into pots. Eg. 1 p coins in one pot, 2p coins in another etc. Look at the coins carefully - how are they different?  

Thursday- .Make  towers of 1p coins - count them and say how much money is in each tower. 
Friday- Make a shop using items from your home - ask family members to come and be customers. You could make price labels and shopping lists too!
