Monday- Live Phonics

Tuesday- Live Phonics 

Wednesday-  Phonics task

Focus: Tricky Word splat. Create flash cards of tricky words and spend time practising reading the words (discussing what makes the word tricky- the bits that you can't sound out using our phonic sounds) and playing splat! Lay the cards on the floor and get an adult or someone at home to read a tricky word. See how quickly you can splat the word with your hand. 

You might even ;like to see how many words you can splat in 1 minute!

splat the tricky words!

Please note: In school we do not always complete our Power maths books everyday. This will be the same during remote learning. We do this so that we can be sure that children have a secure understanding of the learning. 

Please put the PowerPoints into Presentation mode so that you can see examples clearly when you open them!

Monday- What? I can compare numbers of objects

Please see today's lesson input and then complete the tasks in your Power Maths book Pages 64-66

Tuesday: PE

What? I can create animal movements.

Get your list of animals that you created last week and this time choose 5 different activities. Maybe you might like to choose letters of your surname. You then have to create a movement for each of the animals. Act like this animal for 30 seconds each. Try and make your movements energetic to really get those heart rates pumping!! 

List of animals if you have lost yours!

Wednesday:  DT

What? I can create a shelter

Last week you designed your own shelters. Today have a go at creating a shelter either inside or outside. Use resources that you have to do this. How are you going to make the shelter stand up so that you have space? How might you cook in it? Have a think about what you might need to take with you to detect different animals. I would love to see photos of you in your home-made shelters! It might even be a good place to do some quiet reading too!

Thursday: RE/ Science 

Last week you went exploring to find signs of spring.

Easter is usually associated with spring because of the signs of new life. Christians believe that Jesus died and rose again from the dead. Have a look at the story and sort the flashcard pictures.
