Tuesday 24th March - home learning
Let's do this!
Day 2 of home learning.
Today your focus sound is ur (nurse with a purse). On your sound chart that was sent home look at the sound ur and together say ur- nurse with a purse. Then point to around 10 other sounds randomly on the sound card to keep other sounds fresh in your child's mind. Make a note of any sounds your child seems unsure of and these can become focus sounds later in the week. On paper, write down the words turn, burn, fur, church and curl (underline the ur sound so it is easier for them to identify). Get the children to read these words by saying the special friend (ur) sounding it out, then blending by saying the word. After that, click the link below to play buried treasure. Click on phase 3 and choose the ur sound.
Now time for some spelling with our Fred fingers. Hide your focus words from today. Say the word turn. Ask your child to repeat turn and pinch the sounds. They then write the word. Repeat this with the other focus words.
Dictation - say the sentence 'The nurse with a purse can surf.' with your child. Repeat this a few times. Ask your child to write down this sentence checking after that they have use a capital letter and a full stop.
Read a book: Visit the website below. Click on the free e books and read the book 'Baboons'. There are other books available if you feel this is not best suited to your child's ability.
Ask your child what they notice about this non fiction book- how it is different from fiction books (Sub headings, information, photographs and bullet points. Complete the questions to talk about at the end of the book.
Writing task: Write a few sentences about your favourite animal including information about it eg I love dogs because they are cuddly and soft.
Today, we are learning to find a quarter of a shape. Open the document below called 'Finding a quarter- teaching pages'. Talk through the slides with your child and spend some time getting your child to repeat the word quarter so they become secure with it. Find some things around the house you can fold/cut into quarters e.g. a tea towel, piece of paper, an apple- this will give some context to their learning. Ensure your child understands a quarter is one of 4 equal parts. If you can, print off the document 'Tuesday- finding quarters' and get your child to complete.
On a Tuesday in year 1 we have music. Below is a link to a website where children can be a part of the band, learning about beats and keeping in time to the music.
Helping at home challenge
Each day we will set your child a helping at home challenge - to teach them that we all need to pull together. Today, we would like them to thank a community hero. Encourage your child to choose someone they have been inspired by and would like to thank. They could maybe write them a letter of thanks or design a thank you card for them.
If you upload any photos of home learning, we would love to see it! Please use the hashtag #chiltonhomelearning
Hope you have a great day and wishing to see you all happy and healthy in the near future.
