Please read with your child for 20 minutes each day. This could be a story book which you read, a phonics book which they read or a mixture of the two.
Oxford Owl have a library of free books which can be read on a phone or tablet.
Follow the link below and sign up yourself. You can then access a variety of books which are age-appropriate. Start on age 3-4 (Oxford Level 1) and work your way through as your child gets more confident.
Today we are using our phonics to write a description of our monsters.
Use your ideas and description from yesterday to write sentences about your monster using the sentence starter 'It is' or 'It has'. Remind your child that we need an adjective to describe the body parts in each sentence.
Blue challenge: ask your child to give you sentences to write. Cut the sentences up into individual words ad then ask your child to stick the words in order on another piece of paper.
Green challenge: ask your child to help you to sound out the words for you to write. Ensure you write exactly what they say (I would rather see words which are phonetically correct than spelt as adults would spell them.) Then as your child to copy their sentences onto a piece of paper with their picture of their monster attached.
Purple challenge: ask your child to write sentences about their monster independently. Remind them that they need a capital letter and full stop.
Today we are going to play a similar Bingo game to the game that we played on Tuesday. However, this time we will be concentrating on asking your child to find one less than a number instead of one more.
I have attached the 0-10 and 0-20 Bingo sheets below, should you need to print them or recreate them again.
Blue challenge: give your child a 0-10 Bingo card and ask them to find the number which is one less than the number which you call out. It may be helpful for them to have blocks or toys next to them so that they can line up the amount you give and then take one away if they need to.
Green challenge: play a Bingo game using the 0-10 Bingo cards. Give your child a number from 1-10 and ask your child to say the number which is one less and then see if they have it on their Bingo board.
Purple challenge: use the 0-20 Bingo cards. Give your child a number from 1-10 and ask them to say one less than that number and then see if it is on their card. Once they are confident, ask them to find 2 less than numbers which you give them.
As an extension, I am attaching a work sheet which you can print for your child where they need to write one more and one less than the numbers on the lorries.
Today we are learning about the Bible story where Jesus heals a blind man.
This story is about faith and how sometimes we need to put our faith and trust in others.
Watch the video below and then talk to your child about trust and trusting other people to keep us safe.
Which people does your child trust and why?
Play a game where one of you is blindfolded and the other gives instructions regarding how to get from one place in the room/garden to another. Model first where you are blindfolded and your child gives instructions. Talk to them about how you trusted them to get your there safely because you know that they love you and wouldn't want you to get hurt. Then repeat the activity with your child with their eyes covered (if they are comfortable to do so.)
