Phonics: We have now finished all of Set 3 sounds! Well done Squirrels! I will not be setting phonics home learning today. I will be assessing children’s phonics when we are back to see where we have gaps in learning or where we are struggling a little with a particular sound. We will then spend time recapping these sounds and consolidating our phonics knowledge.
Please feel free to recap any sounds your child is finding difficult by re-watching any of the videos posted online throughout lockdown.
Literacy: Today’s Literacy will consist of handwriting practise, spelling practise and a chance to do some free writing.
Free writing: Free writing is a chance for you to explore any writing you wish. You may want to write a story, a diary entry, a letter, a poem, anything you wish to write is perfect! I’d love to see what you have written today so please don’t forget to email me (email@example.com)!
Today’s handwriting – Diagonal join to Set 3 letters: ar
Spellings: This week’s focus is on the sounds ‘ear’ and ‘ure’ + numbers written as words as an extra challenge.
Maths: Friday’s Maths lesson in class is an Arithmetic lesson. We usually start with a quick arithmetic test and then go through this together as a class. Please have a go at the test and then ask an adult to help you make any corrections if you need to.
Year 1: Year 1 Arithmetic Test
Year 2: Year 2 Arithmetic Test
RE: Our topic in RE is – Salvation – Why does Easter matter to Christians?
Today’s LO: As a Religious explorer, I will write how I would be feeling/what I would say if I were Mary, arriving back at the empty tomb.
Look at the picture of Jesus’ body missing from the tomb and Mary Magdalene next to it. Discuss what you would be saying if you were Mary Magdalene.
Activity: Children to have the picture on their page and to write how they would be feeling/what they would say if they were Mary. Discuss this together.
Golden Time: Enjoy the rest of your afternoon!
Have a fantastic weekend Squirrels Class! I cannot wait to see you all on Monday 🙂
