MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS PICNIC
This week is Mental Health Awareness week and our school is holding a ‘Virtual Picnic’ no raise awareness for this event. PLEASE have a picnic with your family at home – on the floor of the living room, in the garden or even on your parent’s bed (watch out for those crumbs!!)
Bring along your favourite toys to join in and have a lovely time.
It is so important during this time for us all to take time for ourselves and to unwind. Our mental health at this time is as much at risk our physical health.
Take a quick picture of yourselves doing this picnic and send us a picture. Keep a look out for some of the photos which might appear on our Facebook page this week.
Watch this story and read along with our book, Ten Little Dinosaurs:
f and b
Listen to our Jolly Phonics song:
In your Essential Learning Pack complete the cut and stick activity for f and b. Look at the pictures, think of the first sound of each word.
How are your High Frequency Word rockets coming along? Have got them stuck up somewhere you can see them? I hope you’re all so proud of the work you are doing with your High Frequency Words.
This week our words are he, the and to.
Go ahead and do your High Frequency Word rocket. Can you think of any sentences with those words in them? Can you see them anywhere in books you are reading?
To complete your rocket cut the words out from the table and stick under the correct word on the rocket.
Design your own Dinosaur:
Over the last few weeks we’ve seen a few different dinosaurs – some walk on two legs (Raptors), some walk on four (Ankylosaur); some have sharp teeth (T-Rex), some have beaks (Triceratops); some have long tails (Diplodocus) and some have long necks (Brachiosaurus).
This week you are going to design your own dinosaur. Before you start have a think what you want them to be able to do – do you want them to be able to eat meat or eat leaves, do you want them to be able to charge at other dinosaurs, do you want them to be camouflaged or stand out?
Once you know all this then get creating. We can’t wait to see and hear about your finished dinosaurs!! Your imaginations always amaze us!!
Please email your teacher a picture or pop a picture under our year group comment for the week.
Use the worksheet from your Essential Work Pack (Week 7) to cut and stick the sentence, ‘He went to the park.’
Some clues to help you with this are:
Please continue to read with your child every night. This is so important for their learning. Bug Club has lots of books allocated to your child to read.
Check out this week’s new HFW book:
This week we focus on number 9
Below is a link to number blocks number 9. A fun video your child might enjoy to get them thinking about number 9.
Below are some ideas of questions to ask your child.
Ask your child to set out 9 cubes.
If you haven’t got cubes use any object like lego, pennies or cutlery.
Can they touch each object with a finger as they count.
Now your child is ready to complete the pages on number 9 in the 'Essential learning pack'.
Estimate and Counting:
We continue to develop your child’s counting skills. In class we would spend time counting objects to make sure they feel confident. Counting objects around the home would help your child.
Play a guessing game. Set out a set of objects e.g. 6 spoons. Ask your child to guess how many there are (without counting). After they have guessed, ask them to count to see if they are right.
Games from Topmarks Maths are excellent for counting. Below are links to some games your child might enjoy.
