We are all different...
As we go through our daily lives our children are always very observant about the differences they see in each other. They notice people who wear glasses; people who have long hair; people who use walking sticks and people of different race. We should discuss these differences openly with our children and reassure them that we are all different and all equal. Use the book below to discuss some of these differences with your child.
This week we begin by sequencing numbers in order. Below are some warm up ideas
- Mix up number cards. Ask your child to put the cards in order from one to 10.
- Play missing numbers. Set out cards and hide one. Can your child guess what one is missing?
- Count up to ten in different voices. Can they count in a loud voice, quiet voice, a squeaky voice?
Complete dot to dot page in essential pack.
This week we are thinking of adding two amounts together and finding a total.
Warm up game
Play the 'make 5' game shown in link below. This game is a great practical way for your child to begin adding two numbers together.
Complete the page from your essential home pack adding two numbers together.
I Spy with my little eye:
Ask your child to count each of the spring objects and write the amount in the next page.
Ask your child have to check over their work and see have they written the correct number formation for their answers?
You could give them a number line so they can refer to and check to see if they have used the correct number formation.
We continue to teach how we use numbers to describe what order things come in. 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc.
In the home learning pack there is a cut and stick activity.
Your child has to order the runners 1st, 2nd 3rd until 10th place.
Below is a link to an ordinal number game where your child has to order from 1st to 10th.
Watch this story and read along with our book, The Treasure of Pirate Frank:
This book has so many wonderful learning opportunities in it.
While you are listening to the story you can stop the video and ask your child:
- Are there any rhyming words in this story? (Rhyme)
- Can you join in with the places our pirate has been? (Memory)
You may need to watch the story a few times to get these questions answered but they are super opportunities to learn.
x and u
Listen to our Jolly Phonics song:
In your Essential Learning Pack complete the cut and stick activity for x and u.
Look at the pictures, think of the first sound of each word.
This week our words are this, like & have. To complete your rocket cut the words out from the table and stick under the correct word on the rocket.
Can you put any of these words into sentences? Maybe your adult could write your sentence down on your whiteboard and you could find your High Frequency Word.
- I like ice-cream.
- I have a fire engine.
Could you get a prize for each of your High Frequency Words you find in your sentence?
This week we have a pirate labelling activity to complete. The words you need are in at the bottom of the page. To help we have given you the initial sound of each of the words.
This week’s pirate story had wonderful opportunities for us to practice our memory skills. Have a watch at a video below of me playing a memory game called Kim’s Game.
Join in with me and if you want try your own version at home.
Use the worksheet from your Essential Work Pack (Week 9) to cut and stick the sentence, ‘Here is my map.’
Remember to use the pictures below to help you with your writing.
If you get this done why not try making your own Pirate Treasure Map.
Here’s a picture of one I have done – do you think you would be able to find my treasure?
Can you remember what special symbol marks the treasure on a map?
Bug Club has more books for you to read. Please read everyday with your child. This is so important.
