Wednesday 1st July
We've made it to the middle of the week. I hope you have been enjoying your learning so far this week and well done to all of you still working hard! Multiplication has been going well in school but can sometimes be a tricky concept so keep trying and don't give up if you're finding it hard. Have a lovely day.
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. On the channel from Monday you will also find a Hold a Sentence video to watch to help your child get used to remembering sentences which they wish to write down. Just scroll down as you would when selecting your sounds video and it is after the red words videos.
If you would rather not use the videos, teach the lesson as follows:
If the videos do not work for you then the lesson is detailed below:
1, Find the sound ‘aw’ 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 ‘aw yawn at dawn’.
2. Write down the following words for your child to read (yawn, dawn, lawn, law). Remember they need to find the 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 (enjoy, fire, door, complain, rain). 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 shume, chuge, pluje. Ask your child to spot the chatty/special 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 child (yawn, dawn, lawn, law). 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.
It is also important for children to practise reading red words which cannot be Fred talked. These words need to be learnt by sight but can be done so through a variety of fun games. You could write some of the red words down on pieces of paper and play snap, bingo, put them around the room/ garden for children to run to when called out or children could practise writing them out in chalk, paint, sand etc. Knowing these red words will help children become speedier and more confident when reading.
Today we will be writing our own counting poems. Watch the video on BBC Bitesize and complete activity two.
Today, we will be continuing with multiplication. To warm our brains up take your 100 square; ask your adult to say a number between 10 and 90. See if you can use you 100 square to find 10 less than that number.
Have a look at the teaching slides to remind yourself how to find the answer to a multiplication question.
Click on the questions attached and pick one set of questions to answer.
For example 5 x 2 = (5 groups of 2).
Draw 5 circles for the 5 groups. Put 2 crosses in each circle. Count the total number of crosses to find the total.
Continuing from yesterday’s learning, recap on the school and class rules. Now imagine a new child started the school, how would they know what the rules are? Would they be clear?
ACTIVITY: Create a poster of the class rules to display for anyone entering our classroom. They would then know what our rules are that they need to follow.
We hope you have a wonderful day.
