Welcome back everyone! We hope you've had a lovely week off and have been able to enjoy the sunshine! We welcome you back to our home learning activities! Our new topic is 'Walking through the Jungle' we hope you enjoy coming on this adventure with us!
You will find all of today's activities for you here on the class page and all of our extra afternoon activities are available all week so you can 'pick and mix' which activities you choose when. We have a link at the bottom of this page to take you straight there. As always we love to see what you are getting up to so please do share your work and pictures on the school blog or by email firstname.lastname@example.org Have a great day!
Phonics and reading
Please continue to learn/revise the sounds by joining in with the Read, Write Inc. lesson. Even if you know the sounds now the lessons are good to help develop your reading and writing skills.
Please watch the Set 3 sounds lesson. This is now available from 9.30am daily. There are also new videos to watch which will be helpful if your child is confident with the sounds. There is a video focusing on reading longer words and another reading Red Words. If your child is a confident reader, please watch the Red Words 2 video, this will be suitable for most Year 1 children but if your child does find this difficult watch the Red Words 1 video instead.
Here is the link to the Read, Write Inc. video and also some information of what Red Words are. This information sheet also mentions another activity called 'Read and Hold a Sentence'. The 'Read and Hold a Sentence' videos will follow in subsequent weeks so there's no need to read this at the moment, just focus on the Red Words.
Today's maths lesson is reviewing what you learnt about halving before the holidays. There isn't a presentation to view today but you have 3 things to complete; an activity colouring in half, a game finding half and an investigation to find a half. I hope you enjoy your challenges!
