Look at a range of shape poems.
What are shape poems? How do they look? What can they be about?
Read a range of poems and discuss your opinions about them. What do you like and dislike about them? Can you perform a poem to everyone in your house?
Explore the sounds they can make with their own body (e.g. pat knees, pop cheek, blow raspberries, whistle, click fingers and clapping).
Explore how the sounds can be changed- faster/slower.
Write all your number bonds to 20. Practice with someone in your house so you can remember them without looking (Jack Hartmann – number bonds 11 -19 YouTube).
Run at different speeds.
Jump from side to side.
Throw a variety of objects, using a small range of techniques.
Plan a poem about a season.
Think of as many different things you can do in different weather and write them into a list. E.g going to the beach in summer, building a snowman in winter
Research the sounds different animals make- are they high pitched or low?
Can you fill in the missing number bonds?
12 + __ = 20
16 + __ = 20
10 + __ = 20
15 + __ = 20
20 + __ = 20
Challenge: Can you make your own missing number sentence bonds for addition?
Children to be still and close their eyes. Think about the special times we celebrate with family and friends and be thankful. Make a list of them and write down why they are important to us.
Have a go at writing a short poem about your chosen season! Use your research for inspiration!
Type your poem onto Purple Mash so your teachers can see.
Now use their own body to re-create animal sounds. E.g loud stomping for elephants.
How many ways can you make the number 19? Think about what you can use around the house
Today you need to write the story for the key events and save your work.
Read the text ‘Taking care of a dog’. This can be found in the English folder. Choose the version best suited for your child. Is the text fiction or non-fiction? How can they tell? Read the text together and see what diagraphs the children can spot. Recap some of the key information within the text. Why do they need a water bowl or bed for? Why is it different looking after a puppy than an adult dog?
Once your child is confident with the text and information let them have a go at the comprehension task. Once they have finished you can go through their answers and understanding.
Can you use different items around the house to make a noise? Think about making quiet noises and loud noises.
Write the numbers 0 to 20 on a sheet of paper.
♦ Ask your child secretly to choose a number on the paper. Then ask him / her some questions to find out what the secret number is, e.g. Is it less than 10? Is it between 10 and 20? Does it have a 5 in it? He / she may answer only yes or no.
♦ Once you have guessed the number, it is your turn to choose a number. Your child asks the questions. For an easier game, use numbers up to 10. For a harder game, use only 5 questions, or use bigger numbers.
Practise creating a routine with body shapes learnt and include different ways to travel.
Read ‘Formidable Sid’
Before you read the story create some predictions about what might happen in the story.
As you read the story discus the events and how the characters are feeling. What kind of pets did the children have? What pets do you have or want? How did they describe Sid? Was he really that scary? How would you describe him?
Children can create a picture of Sid and describe him using noun phrases.
Listen to a song. Re-create the song using equipment at home. Think about the equipment used for loud noises/quiet noises.
When walking down the street with your child, look at house numbers. These will probably be following a pattern of either odd or even numbers. Can your child predict what number will be on the next house? Talk about the pattern.
Research how to brush your teeth and create a poster on why it is important.
