Reading

 

The children in school each week will continue to change their books as normal, bringing home the new books they have read with an adult during the course of the week.

For children not in school we will allocate 2 books on Bug Club at the appropriate level for your child to read and answer the questions to the quizzes as they go by clicking on the bugs so we can see how they are doing. We will ensure all children  (not attending school) have the minimum books allocated to them as of Sunday afternoon. Please see instructions for how to login to Bug Club in Reading journals.

 

For additional books please use this link for online books. You can find books appropriate to the coloured level they are currently on- lilac, pink, red etc.

Focus activity- Creative Activity

Today the children in school will be creating their own Elmer design using either a paper plate or a blank mask template found below. This will be used to take part in our own Elmer parade on Friday. Look at all the different designs the elephants painted themselves in the story for inspiration; now create your own. You can use anything you have at home to create your design: paint, crayons, collage, natural materials or anything else you can think of. Please bring it in on Thursday when we return to school.  Have lots of fun!

I Spy the Sound

‘I Spy the Sound’ is a fun way to build phonics skills and phonemic awareness. In this variation of the classic game, ‘I Spy’, ask your child to spy words that begin with a certain sound, rather than a letter. For example, “I spy with my little eye, something beginning with mmm.”

Focus activity- Maths- Counting and Addition Activity

This week the children in school will be introduced to the terms 'add' and 'subtract' and the symbols that go with these terms. In the briefing I will introduce them, explain what they mean and show the children what they look like along with the sign language to go with it. We have to use the word subtract and not take away. The children need to understand 'add' as putting things in and the group getting bigger, and 'subtract' as removing things from a group and it getting smaller. Please practise addition using the sheets in the masters section below. There is a counting sheet for help recognising numbers, an addition sheet with numbers up to 10 and, for a challenge, an addition sheet with numbers to 20.

Letter Race

This game requires a magnetic board, magnetic letters, and a lot of space! Set up the magnetic board on one side of the room, and place the magnetic letters in a basket or bowl on the other side. Call out a sound, or a word starting or ending in a particular sound. Then ask your child (with a ready, set, go!) to pick out the correct magnetic letters and run over as fast as they can to stick it on the board. Extend with full cvc words such as cat, hat, mat etc. If you do not have a magnetic whiteboard, use bits of paper with the sounds written on them. Sounds covered so far are; s,a,t,p,i,n,m,d,g,o,c,k,,b,f,v,j,z,w,l,e,u,r,h,y,x

Phonics Hopscotch

This game helps children develop their ability to match letters to their sounds. All you need for this fun phonics activity is a piece of chalk and the ground. Simply draw hopscotch markings on the ground (how many squares and in what shape they are arranged is up to you). In each square draw a letter of the alphabet (you may want to draw both the upper and lower case letters in each). There are many ways you can play this game – you can call out a letter or combination of letters and ask your child to jump on those letters, and as they do, for them to sound out each letter. Or you can ask your child to jump on the letters in alphabetical order, sounding them out as they go along. You can also roll dice and ask your child to jump to the square that matches the number rolled, counting the squares as they jump and sounding the letter out at the end.

 

Focus activity- Reading Comprehension Activity
