Reading

For today’s reading task, log on to www.oxfordowl.co.uk.

Choose any book to read from the book shelf. Have a go at reading the words yourself by sounding them out or clap them if they are tricky words.

Grown ups - look at the front page and back page and there will be pointers on there for you to ask/do while reading the book.

Writing

Today you are going to use the adjectives that you wrote down yesterday to help you to write a sentence about your favourite zoo animal. It is important that you remember all of the things that make a great sentence:

  • A capital letter at the beginning of your sentence.
  • Finger spaces.
  • A full stop at the end of your sentence.

Maybe you could write 2 or 3 sentences!

Challenge: Use the connective ‘and’ to make your sentence longer.

Maths

Today is the last day of April. Let’s recap the months of the year! Have a go at singing the months of the year song and to make it extra fun see if your grown up will teach you the actions to the macarena to do at the same time!

Reading

Today, listen to Julia Donaldson's - Monkey Puzzles - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxpJnk3QO-8

Answer these questions...

Who is the monkey looking for?

What animals were in the story? 

How do you think the monkey feels when he finds his Mum and Dad?

Why do the butterfly’s babies not look like her?

Challenge:

Find the rhyming words in these sentences from the story:

“My mum isn’t a great grey hunk. She hasn’t got tusks or a curly trunk.”

“She doesn’t curl round a nest of eggs. And anyway my mum’s got more legs.”

“She’d rather eat fruit than swallow a fly. And she lives in the treetops, way up high.”

Writing

In your home learning books, we would like you to draw a picture of your favourite zoo animal. Next, think of some words to describe your animal. These words are called adjectives. Write these words underneath your animal. Try hard to listen for the sounds in order and form your letters correctly. 

Maths

Today we are going to use the number cards you made yesterday to practise ordering numbers. Once you have put them in order, ask your grown up to set a timer and see if you can order them in 30 seconds!

Now that they are in order, use your number line to answer these questions.

What is 1 more than 3? What is 1 less than 3?

What is 1 more than 6? What is 1 less than 6?

What is 1 more than 9? What is 1 less than 9?

Challenge:

What is 1 more than 12? What is 1 less than 12?

What is 1 more than 15? What is 1 less than 15?

What is 1 more than 19? What is 1 less than 19?

Writing

Today we are going to practise writing some tricky words. First of all, watch the video for your phonics group. Then ask a grown-up to tell you which words to write down. Remember tricky words are words that we cannot sound out, so we have to remember how to spell them. It might help to clap the letters like we do in school.

Mrs Sharkey and Miss Thompson’s Groups: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R087lYrRpgY

Mrs Dowling’s Group: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvMyssfAUx0

Challenge: Can you write a sentence with one of your tricky words in?

Maths 

Let’s start with some counting. Can you teach a grown up how to do a rally robin count? So you say 1, your grown up says 2, you say 3, your grown up says 4 and so on. See how high you can count up to!

This week, we will be learning to recognise, write and order numerals. Today, have a go at playing ‘Bud’s Number Garden’ on BBC bitesize:
