‘Be The Best You Can Be’

W.B. 12.10.2020

Week 7 - Week Beginning 12th October 2020

 Name Writing

  • Practise writing your name everyday.

 

Phonics

We are learning to read and write a different letter each day:

Monday - m

Tuesday - a

Wednesday - s

Thursday - d

Friday - t

Watch the video on espresso about the letter.

Now tell your grown-up some words that start with today's sound. Finally have a go at writing the letter a few times.

Grown-ups: Every day, revisit the previous sounds that they have learnt.

 

Topic

This week our theme is 'From Head to Toe'. This theme will explore all of the amazing things our body can do. This week we are thinking about our 5 senses. 

  • We see with our eyes.
  • We hear with our ears.
  • We smell with our noses.
  • We taste with our tongue.
  • We touch with our skin.

Activities:

Book: 

  • Peace at Last https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U9y35kWBvM - What sounds stopped Mr Bear from getting to sleep? - Draw a picture of something that happened in the story. It could be a picture of Mr Bear trying to sleep in the garden. Now write some labels on the picture. You could label 'bear', 'hedgehog', 'cat'. Focus on listening for the initial and final sounds in the words and form the letters. -Extension: Write a sentence about something that happened in the story. For example, 'The clock went tick tock'.

Remember to:

  • Say your sentence to your grown-up.
  • Sound out each word carefully.
  • Write the letters down in sequence.
  • Put a finger space between each word.
  • Put a full stop at the end of your sentence. 

Maths

Counting Activities (Please do at least one counting activity every day)

  • I can count to 20 song with actions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0VLxWIHRD4E
  • Rally Robin counting to 20. (Adult and child face each other. Adult says 1, child says 2, adult says 3, child says 4 and so on until you get to 20)
  • Every time you go upstairs, count the steps. Remember to say 1 number name for each step.
  • Counting actions. Jump 10 times and count as you do it. 

This week, we are learning to say the number 1 more or 1 less than a given number.

Vocabulary: more, less, add, take away, how many?

1 more activities:

  • Listen to the one elephant song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAangIPkQ8A
  • Get some coins or counters. Put 4 in a line. If you add 1 more, how many will you have? Repeat with a few numbers within 10. When you are confident at doing this within 10, extend to within 20. 

1 less activities:

  • Get some coins or counters. Put 4 in a line. If you take 1 away (have 1 less), how many will you have? Repeat with a few numbers within 10. When you are confident at doing this within 10, extend to within 20. 
  • Listen to some rhymes on BBC Bitesize that help us to think about '1 less'. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/nursery-rhymes-counting-songs/zn67kmn - 5 Little Ducks - 5 Little Speckled Frogs - 5 Little Men in a Flying Saucer - 5 Currant Buns

Grown-ups: By the end of the week, after lots of practise using counting resources and listening to rhymes, encourage your child to say the number 1 more or 1 less than a number by working it out in their head.
