Good Morning Team Lime and Willow!
It has been good to hear how some of you have been continuing to enjoy the learning on time last week, I hope this continues daily as ‘Maths is everywhere’ and the real-life experiences allow us to master these skills as we become fluent in them.
You may have noticed that I have not uploaded activities to ‘Maths with Parents’ this week. The feedback has been very mixed, therefore, I have decided to revert back to putting a maths meeting activity on the email. I will endeavour to make sure that these are open ended and those that need an extra challenge will be able to take the learning to where appropriate. Please remember that the purpose of maths meetings is to practise what we know, reason, explain, be fluent and to solve problems.
Today you might like to:
Get some fresh air by going for a walk, into your garden or complete an exercise video online (see website list). Alternatively, complete the colour by number – Back to Earth with a Bump. Can you stay within the lines whilst colouring and holding your pencil correctly?
HAVE A CIRCLE TIME (PSED)
Continue to reflect on your time at home by creating a ‘Home Learning 2020 Time Capsule’ with your family. Think about objects, pictures, photographs that might be included in it. You might like to use the attached sheets for guidance.
COMPLETE A MORNING ADULT DIRECTED LEARNING ACTIVITY (L)
There are lots of rhyming words in the story. Can you think of a word that rhymes with ‘star’? What about a word that rhymes with ‘Moon’? Or ‘Sun’? Challenge: Can you write a sentence or two that contains rhyming words?
Write a list of some things Hal sees on his adventure. What else might you see in space? Try writing a list of 5 things. Sound out the words carefully.
Challenge: Can you write a story about travelling in to space?
LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
Play for at least an hour in the morning and in the afternoon with no TV or electrical gadgets.
Enjoy a drink and a healthy snack with your child. You might like to talk about how and why it is important to keep healthy and where food comes from.
READING FOR PLEASURE
Read to your child a story or two. Don’t forget to talk about: the title, author, illustrator, blurb, what is happening and where, what has been said, how characters are feeling and what they might be thinking. Can you recall the sequence of the story? Beginning/middle/end?
READ TO LEARN SKILLS AND APPLY THEM
Write the sentence below on a piece of paper. Can you read the sentence (Phase 3), applying what you know about sounds? (‘x’ sounds like ‘cs’) Where is the tricky word (the)? Can you circle this when you have found it? Where are the capital letters? Where is the full stop? What is a fox, a vixen and cubs? What is a den? What might the den look like or be built of?
The fox and vixen had cubs in a den.
Listen to your child read and discuss their book. Look on the website Oxford owl for free eBooks if required or you can use books from your book corner. Read the book together stopping to allow your child to read the words you think they might know.

HAVE A 5 MINUTE MATHS MEETING
Draw a picture of a clock you have at home. Look carefully at the clock. What numbers can you see? Write the numbers onto your clock picture. Can you draw the hands of the clock? Which numbers are they pointing to? Do you know what time it is?
