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.

►Topic/Phonics

Today we are going to be writing a speech bubble for the Gingerbread Man.

Watch the video below and then either print out the speech bubble sheet or ask your child to draw a picture of the Gingerbread Man. Draw a speech bubble with lines inside for your child to write their speech bubble.

Examples of things that they would write are:

Let me out!

Run, run as fast as you can!

Look, I can see a fox!

Blue challenge: ask your child to give your a speech bubble and segment the words together. Write the speech bubble and ask them to copy it, concentrating on letter formation.

Green challenge: as your child to segment the words in their speech bubble and write it down. You may wish to provide sight words for them to copy if they are unsure.

Purple challenge: after completing the Green challenge, ask your child to write 'said the Gingerbread Man' underneath.

EYFS Speech Bubbles introduction

►Maths

Today we are working on consolidating our doubles facts.

Play the Archery Doubles Game which I have attached below.

Blue challenge: ask your child to read the number which needs to be doubled and then count the apples to find the answer. If they are unsure where the answer is on the target, tell them which numbers make it up (e.g. 16 = a 1 and a 6.)

Green and Purple challenge: ask you child to answer the questions whist hiding the apples with your hand. Reveal the apples so that they can check their answer. When they find the answer, say "Double ____ is _____ so half of ______ is ...." and ask you child to tell you the answer. (e.g. "Double 8 is 16 so half of 16 is...").

►PE

Today we are introducing the next Quad Cup Challenge.

BoxFit With Leona Knott

Today we are going to be learning about the Bible Story 'The Paralysed Man.'

Watch the story video and then talk to your child about what the people who were present might say, following on from our speech bubble work earlier today.
