Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero

Monday 15th June

Good morning Galileo class,


I hope you have all had a nice weekend, enjoying the lovely sunny weather. Welcome to the start of another week learning from home!


Here is the plan for today...



We hope you are continuing to learn your sounds with Rosie by watching the Read, Write Inc. lessons. The lessons are available from 9.30am, but you can watch them anytime within 24 hours. Please watch and join in with the following videos:

  • Word Time - learning the sound and reading the words. Today's sound is 'ow'
  • Spellings - learning how to spell words using the 'ow' sound.
  • Reading Red Words 2
  • Reading Longer Words including the 'oo' sound. 

These four videos are key to developing reading and writing skills. There are parts of the lesson which involves reviewing what they have previously learnt. Reviewing previous learning is important as it is making your child more confident reading and writing with these sounds. The new videos (Reading Red Words and Reading Longer Words) are essential to support your child become a more fluent reader.



Today I would like you to read the Blue Read, Write Inc. book called 'Save the Whale'. This book has more challenge than previous books read and has been chosen as it links to topic. You will learn lots of new facts about whales from reading the book but as it provides more challenge a little support may be needed to read the text. 


Today's maths lesson focuses on describing position. Use the PowerPoint presentation lesson 3 to learn about this. Discuss the following questions:


Can you describe how this object has been turned?
Can you describe how it can be turned back to its original position?
Has this object moved left, right, up or down?
Can you record how it has moved on the grid?


Then complete the worksheet called 'Describing positions (1)'. You should find this in your Home Learning pack. Once you have completed this why not have a go at the activity called 'Doughnut positions'. That sounds very tasty! smiley



Choose a lesson from the topic page for this afternoon. There's some more Geography work, learning about seas, and also some Father's Day activities which you may enjoy doing. 


Have a great day everyone. smiley
