Children who are returning to school will be reading all of their books in school with a Teacher or Teaching Assistant as we cannot send materials home. There will be no book bags or reading journals.
For those children who are not returning to school we will allocate 2 books on Bug club on Fridays for the following week.
Remember all the books previously allocated will still be available for the children to re-read and please continue to use any other books you have at home. Children will also enjoy finding words in books you read to them as well as the environment.
Continue to use the bumblebee tricky word mat for children to recognise and read on sight and begin spelling accurately too.
Oxford Reading tree have also released their scheme for you to use at home for free. This is in the national book band colours. You will need to create an account.
If you would like a little more help here are some swashbucklinginstructions to help you.
Once you have painted and decorated the outside of the treasure chest you can start adding the shiny coins and jewels to the inside. Perhaps you have some fancy dress jewellery you could use or ask a grown up if you could cut some coins out of foil.
Don’t forget to ask your grown up to take a photograph of your treasure chest and send it to us.
Ahoy there Shipmates!
For today’s activity, you are going to need 20 pirate coins with numbers 1 – 20 on. You can print off and use the coins we have provided or you can make the coins at home with some foil or with paper.
When you have got your 20 coins and they all numbered, put them into the treasure chest you made yesterday. Give your treasure chest a shake so the coins are all jumbled up and then take 5 coins out. Read the numbers on the coins carefully and then see if you can put them in order from smallest number to biggest number. When you have done it, put the coins back into the chest and give it another shake. Then you can play all over again!
Perhaps you could give your map to someone in your home and see if they can follow your map and find the treasure!
Good luck shipmates and don’t forget to send us your photographs of your treasure maps.
