Term 3 Home Learning

 

Please use the Tapestry website to access your child's Home Learning activities. You can use the image below to go directly to the Tapestry website:

 

 

I will be uploading documents to Tapestry which you can download and use with your child. You will only be able to access these documents through the Tapestry website and not through the Tapestry app. If you are using an iPad, you can access the website through the 'Safari' app. 

 

You will find the 'Documents' tab here:

 

 

Once you have clicked on the Documents tab, you can then access and download the documents. Click on the green 'Download' button and then print the item if you are able to. If you do not have access to a printer, then use the document online or if you have the time, you could create your own.

Monday 25th January - Phonics

Still image for this video
Today in phonics we are learning the 'ch' sound.

Can you talk through the video with your child and make the 'ch' sound with them? Perhaps they can move around the room like a train making the 'ch, ch, ch, ch' sound.

Writing Activity:
- My ch workbook

Reading Activity:
- Reading ch words card game

Physical Activity:
- ch initial sound snap cards
- Phase 3 dinosaur stomp - only use the sounds we have learnt so far please.

You do not have to use any of the printouts, you can simply write the sounds and words on pieces of paper. The dinosaur stomp game could be played outside by drawing chalk letters on the floor!

Monday 25th January - Maths

Still image for this video
Today in maths, we are going to find 1 more with numbers 0-10. We are going to use a number line to add on one each time.

Can you talk through the video with your child?

Activity:
- The 1 more sheet of the '1 more than, 2 more than jumping' sheet.

Challenge activities:
- The 2 more sheet of the '1 more than, 2 more than jumping' sheet.
- One more chili cards (you do not need to use Play-Doh). Please focus on the deepening question. They will take the learning further.
- Use the words greater as well as more.

You do not need to use any of the sheets. You could bring the sheets up on a tablet or phone and then get your child to write the answer on a piece of separate paper or just say the answer.

Monday 25th January - My teddy is poorly!

Still image for this video
My teddy has blue fever! I need you to create a cure/medicine for his illness!

Please can you use your ideas from Friday to write 3 ingredients for the cure/medicine?

I have modelled an example in the video. Please encourage your child to write the sounds they are familiar with. It is okay if the letters don't look perfect! You can scribe the letter they intended to write underneath. It's important that your children have opportunities to mark make and make mistakes. It's one of the way we all learn.

We don't want writing to become a battle though, so if your child is really struggling, perhaps they can point to the sounds on a sound mat or they can practise writing the letters in something less permanent e.g. flour, sand etc.

Your child could also write the numbers for how many of each item is needed. In the video I chose the numbers which matched our phonics ('ten' and 'six'.)

You do not need to use the scroll paper!

WE ARE NOT WRITING THE INSTRUCTIONS TODAY. Please do not write them, we will do that on Tuesday.

Thank you!

Term 3, Week 3, Monday 18th January

 

Please find the children's home learning resources for Monday 18th January. Once the children have completed their work, please continue to upload to Tapestry, when you can.

Monday 18th January - Phonics

Still image for this video
Today we are learning the 'y' sound.

Can the children join in with the video and remember the Phase 3 sounds we have learnt so far?

Activity - I have uploaded the activity sheet from the video to the Documents area but you do not have to use it! If you want to create your own, it took me about 2 minutes to write the Phase 3 sounds we have learnt and a few of the Phase 2 sounds that the children get muddled up! You could use a Bingo dabber if you have but I didn't so I used a felt tip pen to colour the 'y' sounds in. You could encourage your children to find the 'j' in a different colour, the 'v' in a different colour and so on.

As always, if you want to use the 'y' workbook you can.

Monday 18th January - Maths

Still image for this video
Today in maths we are going to be thinking about all of the way we can represent 6!

Your child may already be familiar with the number 6 and might even be able to count past it! What's important though is that your child can recognise all of the different ways that we can represent 6 and use them in their learning.

Activity - Either complete the 'All about 6 activity sheet' or try out one of the home learning activity ideas.

Challenge - Use the '6, 7, 8 burying dog bones' activity to represent 6, in a 10 frame or playing the 'I spy a number 6' game with the sheet. You can do this on an iPad or computer. You do not need the physical sheet.

Monday 18th January - Who committed the crime?

Still image for this video
Watch the video to see who stole the honey! Were you right? Did you guess the right character?

After the video, can the discuss the questions with your adult?

What do you think should happen next? In Burglar Bill, he and Betty returned all of the item that they had stolen. What should Sally Spider do?

Why do you think Sally Spider took the honey?

Should we take things without asking? Why?

What day is it today?

Tuesday 12th January - Phonics

Still image for this video
Today's phonics focus is the sound 'v'.

In the video, I play a game of Silly Soup. Please encourage your child to join in with the chant and words.

Activity ideas:
Below is the 'v' workbook. If you would prefer to doing something practical then you could try one of the ideas below:

Writing the letter:
- In sand
- In glitter
- In paint
- In shaving foam
- On an iPad
- With chalk

Outside activities:
- Play hopscotch but place the sounds 'v', 'j' and other familiar sounds in the boxes rather than numbers
- Play hide and seek with the 'v' sound and other familiar sounds
- Ride their balance bike/bike or scooter around to find the sound when you say it
If you have chalk, write the sounds out on the ground and encourage the children to:
- Wash the sound away with a paintbrush and water
- Use a spray bottle filled with water and pretend they are a firefighter putting out the sound fire

Online games:
Play Obb and Bob or Dragon's Egg on Phonics Play with the 'v' sound.
To recap Phase 2 sounds, play some of the games on https://www.phonicsbloom.com/uk/game/list/phonics-games-phase-2

Tuesday 12th January - Maths

Today in maths, we are thinking about using a 5 frame to add. You do not need to print the 5 frame off, you could simple draw one on paper. You also don't need counters. You could use lose buttons, stones, Cheerios, anything which fits inside each square.

Please encourage the children to count along with the video. If you need to pause it any any point please do. Once the video has finished, can your child/ren have a go at answering my questions? There are some challenge questions there too!

Phonics

Today in Phonics we are learning the 'j' sound. This is a brand new sound!

Once your child has engaged with the video, please play some games with the 'j' sound. You may choose to complete the booklet below or do one of the activities suggested.

You could:
Place some sounds written on paper around the room. Use 'j' and then some other sounds the children are familiar with e.g. 's'. 'm', 'u'. Say a sound and the children have to run to the paper or island before the sharks get them!

If you have some waterproof bath letters, you could put them in a bowl of water and go fishing for the sounds.

If you have magnetic letters, perhaps you can use the 'j' sound and others to play a game on the fridge.

You could play a hide and seek game with the sound! Can they find all of the 'j' sounds before the time runs out?

You may even choose to get your child to write the sound in a tray of glitter (if you're brave!)

Maths

Can you your child engage with the video and then have a go themselves?

For the game you will need 5 items and a tea towel or a towel.

English

 

Unfortunately, I cannot share the video for English here. Due to publishing reasons, the video is to be share on a private location with the children. Hopefully Tapestry will be more cooperative this afternoon!

Days of the Week song

Here you will find our days of the week song.

Can your child sing along to the song?

What day comes before Thursday?

What day comes after Thursday?

Thursday 7th January - Phonics

Still image for this video
Today our focus is reading CVC (consonant vowel consonant) words. Can the children help me read the words in the video?

Activity - in the Documents ares find the CVC word and picture match activity sheet. Can your child segment the sounds in the word first? Then, can they blend the letters to read the word? If they are finding the blending a little tricky, that is okay. Either model how to blend the sounds back together e.g. c-a-t, cat or segment the sounds with your child and help them say the word by saying the first sound.

Challenge - Use the Phonics Play website to play the game Obb and Bob. Click on 'Start' and then choose 'Phase 2'. Select 'Revise all Phase 2'. If you noticed yesterday, that your child is struggling with a particular sound, you could focus on that sound instead. This is a challenge as it relies on the children knowing the meaning of the word as well as being able to blend/segment the sounds. https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/picnic-on-pluto

You usually need a subscription to be part of Phonics Play but during lockdown they have made the website free. These are the login details:

Thursday 7th January - Maths

Still image for this video
Today in maths, we continue to think about one more and one less.

Activity - Can you help The Three Bears sort out the numbers? Start by giving Mummy Bear a number shape between 1 and 5. (It might help to lay out the number shapes as I did in the video.) You need to give Daddy Bear 1 more and Baby Bear 1 less. If your child is confident to do this, move onto numbers 1-10. For this activity you will need Three Bears Number shape cut outs, Three Bears pictures, Three Bears Simple Challenge Cards.

Challenge - One more or one less jumping. Can your child perform more or less jumps than the number given. You can add a time challenge in to make it even trickier!

If you don't have a printer, you can always use your children's toys. Start with a number of toys, find one less, find one more.

Thursday 7th January - Curriculum

Thank you for all of your brilliant ideas! You know lots of people that can help you.

Activity - Can you create a picture of someone that helps you? You could paint or draw the person. You may choose to make the person out of Lego. It is entirely up to you!

If you don't fancy the activity above, you could always try the Hand print Firefighter picture. There are instructions in the Documents area.
