An example of a Home Learning Timetable to help with anyone struggling for a routine similar to school.

Timetable example for home learning

Maths:

The children would benefit from lots of counting to 100, practise partitioning numbers into tens and ones and comparing numbers using the language ‘more than’, ‘less than’ and ‘equal to’.

Literacy:

The story “Slowly, Slowly, Slowly,” Said the Sloth By Eric Carle, links nicely to our class topic ‘Jungles and Rainforests’. A link to the Youtube version of the story – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZX39Nc20Ys

Here are some ideas for reading and writing activities that can be used with the children at home.

Slowly Slowly Slowly said the sloth activity ideas

Science:

If you are able and have a garden, a nice idea would be to plant your own seeds/plants – I have received some lovely photos of children making their own vegetable gardens – apologies for not uploading more examples of children’s home learning! When I upload the photos, for some reason they don’t upload properly and cut parts of the photos off (usually the children’s’ heads)!!!

Phonics:

Alternative pronunciation for ou.

Examples of alternative ou = you, soup, group

= could, would, should

= shoulder, mouldy, boulder

Also to practise reading and spelling the high frequency words many, good, away (if the children were to sound these out to help with spelling then they could be spelt wrong, they need to recognise them from memory).

I have loved seeing some great work already, so thank you to those who have emailed! If you would like to email me photos of your work, any arts or crafts or activities you have been doing, I would love to see them! You can email me on edwards.l@shawburystmarys.co.uk

Keep safe and keep smiling 🙂

I have made an example of a Home Learning Timetable to help with anyone struggling for a routine similar to school. This is for you to use if you wish but please do not feel pressured to follow!

Timetable example for home learning

Maths:

A useful link for Maths is below, following the White Rose Maths scheme of learning.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

Please practise making number bonds to 10 and 20 e.g. 9 + 1 = 10, 6 + 4 = 10, 19 + 1 = 20, 16 + 4 = 20 and counting in 2, 5 and 10. Having these skills embedded in the children’s learning helps support all areas of Maths.

Literacy:

Some ideas linked to our topic ‘Jungles and Rainforests’ –

  • Introduce children to ‘A rumble in the jungle’ https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/rumble-in-the-jungle/. Encourage children to think about how the animals move, what they look etc.  Try to get some adjectives (describing words) for each animal. Children to record the animal (you can draw it or write its name) and write down the adjectives that are used to describe it, can you add anymore adjectives of your own?
  • Read the Lion section from Rumble in the Jungle, without expression. Ask the children how we could make it more interesting? Read again using an expressive voice and actions, ask them which version they preferred and why? You could role play the story using masks (look on Twinkl for these or make your own); remember to use lovely expression and actions. https://www.twinkl.co.uk/ Why not record your performance and email it to me at edwards.l@shawburystmarys.co.uk – I would love to see your work!
  • You could have a go at filling in this table to describe different animals found in the poem; this will support writing your own poem. Found Animal poem table
  • Using the found poem table, we can use this to write our own animal poem. A structure in mind could be: Where it lives, what it looks like x2, how it moves, what it sounds like.
  • Once you have your poem draft, you could write it out neatly and illustrate it. Here is a lovely page border you may wish to use. Again, I would love to see any poems you come up with! Lined jungle border

Science:

Our Science topic this term is Plants. There are lots of games, activities and worksheets I have put onto Education City, so please have a look at these. If you are able and have a garden, a nice idea would be to plant your own seeds/plants – I am trying to grow some strawberries in hanging baskets (I hope they work)!

Phonics:

Alternative pronunciation for y.

Examples of alternative y = sky, reply, fry, by, my, spy (makes a long ’igh’ sound)

= lolly, merry, crunchy, happy, very, funny (makes a long ‘e’ sound)

= gym, crystal, cygnet, mystery, pyramid (makes a short ‘i’ sound)

Also to practise reading and spelling the high frequency words mouse, once, put, could (if the children were to sound these out to help with spelling then they could be spelt wrong, they need to recognise them from memory).

I have loved seeing some great work already, so thank you to those who have emailed! If you would like to email me photos of your work, any arts or crafts or activities you have been doing, I would love to see them! You can email me on edwards.l@shawburystmarys.co.uk

I hope you are all keeping well!

Well done Daisy, keep up the hard work!

Topic/Literacy

If we were in school this half term, our Topic would have changed to Jungles and Rain forests. Twinkl have some great ideas and resources to support this topic! I have attached the Twinkl mind map of lesson ideas to refer to if you wish.

A nice idea for a Literacy lesson over a few days could be to research different jungle animals and make an information book/leaflet.

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/

Lesson Ideas for Jungles

Maths

I have updated Education City and put lots more resources online for the children to access. Please also have a look at White Rose Maths online as this is what we follow in school and the children are familiar with it.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

Science

Our Science topic this term is Plants – I have set work on Education City. Also linked to our topic of Jungles and Rain forests, you could research animals that live in the jungle/rain forest. Think about where they live? What they eat? How they adapt to their surroundings? Etc.

Phonics

Alternative pronunciations for  ie and ea.

Examples of alternative ie = chief, field, thief, yield, shield, die, pie

Examples of alternative ea = head, deaf, ready, bread, heaven, sea, read, leaf

Also to practise reading and spelling the high frequency words thought, any, and saw (if the children were to sound these out to help with spelling then they could be spelt wrong, they need to recognise them from memory).

Art

You could draw your favourite Jungle animal and colour/paint it. Maybe make a collage of a jungle animal or get some chalk and draw one outside on the pavement. You could look at the fur of a jungle animal and draw/paint the pattern on the fur.

I hope this helps to give some ideas for home learning – take care and enjoy the sun!
