Tuesday 16th June

Good morning Galileo class,


I hope that you are all well. Mrs Davies, Mrs Tildsley, Mrs Tempest, Mrs Wadley and Mrs Malam and I had a very busy day yesterday turning our 'messy' classroom into a nice tidy one. I think you will be very surprised how great it looks when Mrs Davies shares some photos later in the week. It's nearly ready for some of our Year 1 children to join us back in school next week. We miss you all and hope to see you soon. 


Here is the plan for your learning today...



Continue to learn your sounds, words and spellings by completing the following 4 Read, Write Inc. lessons:

  • Set 3 Speed Sound Lesson - today's sound you will review is 'ai'
  • Set 3 Spelling Lesson
  • Reading Red Words 2 
  • Reading Longer words - you will read Green words focusing on the sounds 'ar'. 

Each video is only 10/15 minutes long and they are available to watch from 9.30am. You can watch these anytime within 24 hours.


Today I would like you to read the book 'Save the Whale' again. Once you have read the book a second time complete the questions at the back of the book. You can either answer the questions through discussion or write the answers in your Home Learning book.

Today you are going to continue to learn about describing position. Share the PowerPoint presentation lesson 4 and discuss the following questions:


What is in front / behind you?
What is to your left / right / above / below?
How we can describe the position of ___?


You then have two activities to complete for today's lesson. The first practical activity is called 'What will you see?' where you will explore what you can see around you and describe it. Then you will have another activity writing sentences describing what you can see. You will be using the new language;  top, middle, bottom, above, below, left and right to describe the position. Once you have completed this there is another optional challenge called 'Position grids' which you may enjoy. 


Head to the Topic page to choose a lesson for today and don't forget about the Father's Day this coming Sunday!

Have a super day. smiley
