Tuesday 9th June

Good morning Galileo children and parents,

I hope that you have all had a good start to the week and managed to get some home learning completed yesterday. Today is International Batten Disease Awareness Day so as well as your usual tasks for the day we thought you may like to get involved. The document below gives a lovely idea of thumbprint art. 


International Batten Disease Awareness Day - thumbprint art

Today you have your phonics, reading and maths activities to do and then you get to choose a lesson of your choosing from the Topic web page. 



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 'aw'
  • Set 3 Spelling Lesson
  • Reading Red Words 2 
  • Reading Longer words - you will read Green words focusing on the sounds aw and or

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


After completing your Read, Write Inc. lessons please read your chosen book for the second time - either 'No Way!' or 'A Hungry Fox'. Remember the second read of the book should be more fluent with less sounding out. Once you have read the book complete the comprehension activities which can be found at the back of the book titled 'questions to chat about'. You can either discuss the questions or write the answers in your Home Learning book.

Today you are reviewing all that you have learnt about fractions. There's a game to play and also a problem solving activity you can challenge yourself with. I hope you have fun showing your family how great you are at knowing your fractions! Please note that there isn't a PowerPoint presentation for today's lesson. 


Head to the Topic page to choose a lesson for today and don't forget about the International Batten Disease Awareness Day activity. I hope you learn lots of new things!
