Starter - Ask and discuss the following questions:
- What day is it today?
- What month are we in?
- How many days in a week?
- How many months in a year?
- What special events do you know? Which month are they in?
Today we will be working on learning the months of the year!
Today's challenge is linked to ordering the months of the year using what we have learnt from the video and powerpoint.
Circles, Triangles and Squares
Ordering the months of the year. You could print off the activity sheet underneath, children cut out the months of the year and order. Or write the months of the year onto pieces of paper and they have to order into their books by sticking or writing.
Rectangles and Pentagons
Ordering the months of the year with some months names missing. You could print off the activity sheet underneath, fill in the missing months, cut and stick in order. Or write the months of the year onto pieces of paper with 3 missing. Children order/write into their books and fill in the missing months.
Today we are going to have a look at the middle of 'Owl Babies'. We are going to write sentences to describe what is happening in the pictures from the middle of the story.
Blue & Green Pencils: Write sentences about the middle, using 'and' or 'because' to extend your sentence or use adjectives to add detail.
Red & Yellow Pencils: Write sentences about the middle of the story.
Challenge: Use 'and' or 'because' to extend your sentence or use adjectives to add detail.
Orange: Cut up the words and stick them down in the correct order. Ask your child to write the missing words in the spaces.
This week we are recapping the alternative ways of spelling ay, ai and a_e.
This is our final lesson working on our animal eBooks using Purple Mash 2Create a Story. You will need to open up your saved work and then add another new page. This time your page will be about animals that live in the jungle. You will need to add an animation and sound effect too. If you would like to do an extra page then you could also complete a page about woodland animals as that is our theme in Literacy this week. Please remember to save your amazing books, they are something that we will be able to share in class when we are allowed to return to school and I am sure that Miss Scott would love to have a look at them.
This week in infant agility we are still looking at gymnastic skills and today we are going to learn how to do a few types of roll. You will need lots of space around you and if possible a soft floor to practise on. Once you have warmed up your bodies you can watch the videos or look at the help cards to learn the different types of roll.
If you would like to think about a little routine putting together some of our jumps and rolls that would be fantastic - perhaps you could send us photos or a video on Tapestry?
Remember to stay safe when doing your P.E. and if anything starts to hurt you need to let an adult know and stop.
Today we warm up our hands by using them to turn our pencil round and round like a windmill. It took me a little while to get the hang of it, as you’ll see in the video, so don’t worry if you don’t master it at first either. It’s good to learn from our mistakes. Once you’ve got the hang of it see if you can concentrate and do it for the count of 10.
Then you’ll need your pattern sheet that we’ve been working on to do the next 2 pattern boxes, before moving onto writing our number digits and words.
