Good morning Team Teal and Team Periwinkle. Welcome to the start of another new week of home learning. We hope you had a lovely weekend.
Once again, thanks to the children who have been sending in pictures and videos of what they have been doing at home (home learning and other activities). It really is a pleasure to open up our emails and see what you have been up to! Please do continue to send them in.
Here’s today’s learning:
The RWI videos will be available, but will take a slightly different form. All videos will be available from 9:30 am so you can choose from set 2 or set 3, whichever you feel your child needs to focus on. There will be reading opportunities for longer words and red words included in each session. Use the link below to find the lessons you need under the different categories.
If you would rather not use the videos, teach the lesson as follows:
1. Find the sound ‘u-e’ on your sound card and say it lots of times, make sure you are looking at the sound to ensure you remember what it looks like, also say ‘u-e huge brute.’ Explain that these are chatty friends (they are not allowed to sit together as they chat too much so have to be separated!) When you're finished, point to some other sounds (about 10).
2. Write down the following words for your child to read (cute, flute, mute, brute). Remember they need to find the special/chatty friends, Fred talk (say the sounds) and then read the word.
3. Now write down some words for your child to read as a recap of previous sounds learnt (flea, blow, mean, soil, plate). This time encourage your child to say the sounds in their head and then say the word aloud.
4. Ask your child to show you their alien faces! Write down the words: shufe, mude, pluje. Ask your child to spot the special/chatty friends, Fred talk and then read the word.
5. Now it's time for spellings! One at a time say the following words to your read (cute, flute, mute, brute). Repeat the word back to each other then ask them to pinch the sounds. When they know how many sounds in the word they can write it down. Help your child to tick or fix (correct) their work.

Think about the following:
- Do you know what Shepherd’s Pie is?
- Why did the children sit at the Packed Lunch table that day?
- What does the word ‘weird’ mean?
- Do you think Mrs Kidd is evil?
Then have a go at answering these questions:
- What day is it?
- Why did Maisie say it was weird?
- Where did the children sit?
- What is Maisie terrified of?
- What is the evil dinner monitor called?
Let’s warm up our maths brains! Ask an adult to choose a number, use your hundred square or number line to say what 2 more and 2 less is. For example, if your adult chooses 23, you would: say ‘2 less than 23 is 21 and 2 more than 23 is 25’.
This week in maths we will be focusing on measurement (length, mass and capacity). Today we will be learning to measure the length of different objects using non-standard units of measurement. We will use parts of our body to measure. To measure smaller objects we could use our fingers and to measure larger objects we could use our feet. Click on the sheet attached to have a go!
Monday is PE day! Today we will focus on balancing! See if you can balance in the following ways:
- Balance on 2 feet
- Balance on 1 foot
- Balance on 1 hand and 2 feet
- Balance on 1 hand and 1 foot
- Balance on 2 feet and 2 hands
- Balance on your back
Can you hold each balance for 5 seconds without wobbling? Can you think of some other ways to balance? Which other body parts could you balance on? Now think about how you could put these balances in to a routine. Remember to hold each balance for at least 5 seconds before moving on to the next balance.
We would love to see some videos or pictures of the routines you put together. Happy balancing!
Viking Games Week 2 - A message from Miss Knight
Thank you so much for all of the pictures and videos that you have sent to me this week. It has definitely been great to see all of your attempts at the challenges.
This week, can you challenge an adult to beat your score!?
The Challenges are:
Can you complete 30 star jumps in 1 minute?
Good luck and I look forward to seeing more pictures and videos!
That is it for today. We hope you have enjoyed your learning! Have a lovely day.
