Wren Class wc 13th July

Hello Wonderful Wrens,

Wow! We cannot believe this is our last home learning of the year. It really feels quite emotional to be writing this, knowing that our little Wrens are going to fly the nest to Year 1.

We are so proud of you all, for how hard you have worked whilst the school has been closed. We are sad we didn’t get to spend more time with you and do all the fun things we had planned during the Summer Term. However, we will be sure to pop in and see you in your new classroom in September and help you settle in. We are only next door and we know we will see you happily playing with Mr Allard in no time at all.

We look forward to seeing some of you on the school field to say a proper goodbye on Tuesday 21st July, and Mr Allard is looking forward to saying hello too. If you are not coming to school for this session, we would like to take this opportunity to say goodbye to you now. We hope you have a truly wonderful Summer and we will see you at the school gate on Monday 7th September. I bet you will all be taller!

Best wishes

Mrs Leaford and Mrs Nixon 😊

Phonics:

For the last few weeks of the year we are going to focus on some key activities for our daily phonics lessons. We believe that these activities will really help your child to prepare for the move to year 1 in September.

The daily Read, Write, Inc. lessons are still available to watch at the website below.

Literacy:

This week the focus for our literacy work is continuing with the seaside. The children are going to write a longer story, over the course of the whole week. We would ask children write a minimum of one sentence each day, but if they write more then this is great! Try to encourage children to add new sentences to the same piece of paper, so that at the end of the week they have one story on one piece of paper. We would love to see them on Tapestry.

Maths:

This week we will be completing Maths activities around our seaside theme. They will incorporate a range of areas covered in our maths lessons this year.

Monday

  • Watch the Read, Write, Inc set 2 speed sound lesson on You Tube. – ar
  • Complete the set 2 spelling lesson with Rosie.
  • Spend 5 minutes on Teach Your Monster to Read (details sent to Tapestry)

Logon to Espresso to watch a story about going to the seaside. We hope this might give you some good ideas for your own story.

Understanding the World – Journey to the Coast – Videos – Lucy and Tom at the Seaside.

Today you are going to write the introduction to your story. Write 1 sentence about how you travelled to the seaside. Did you go by car, bike, maybe even train? You could also write a sentence about what you saw on the journey. What did you see out the window?

 

Everyone enjoys filling buckets with water from the sea.

Look at the PowerPoint named Capacity Monday, to remind you of the words we use to describe amounts of water.

Look at Monday maths sheet.

Ask a grown up to read the speech bubbles to you. Draw a line to match each person to their bucket. Finish the speech bubbles using the words empty, nearly empty, half full, nearly full and full.

Why don’t you have a go at filling a bucket. Ask a grown up to tell you how much to put in the bucket using the words above. Can you make sure you get the right amount in each bucket?

Tuesday

  • Watch the Read, Write, Inc set 2 speed sound lesson on You Tube. – or
  • Complete the ‘hold a sentence 1’ lesson with Rosie on the RWI You Tube page.

Today you are going to write the ‘build up’ to your story.

Write 1 (or more) sentence about something you did at the seaside. Did you build a sandcastle. Did you eat an ice cream? Did you go in the sea?

Watch the Espresso video on solid shapes, to remind you of the names of 3D shapes (Espresso – foundation – maths – shape – videos – solid shapes).

Have a look at Tuesday Maths sheet. Can you find the shapes hidden in the seaside picture? Tick once you have found them, and then write the name of each shape.

Some shapes are easier to find than others!

Wednesday

  • Watch the Read, Write, Inc set 2 speed sound lesson on You Tube. – air
  • Complete the set 2 spelling lesson with Rosie.
  • Spend 5 minutes on Teach Your Monster to Read (details sent to Tapestry)

Oh no! Today is the problem part of our story!

Something must happen in your story. Write a sentence to explain the problem.

Maybe a big wave knocked over your sandcastle? Maybe a seagull stole your swimming towel? Maybe you got lost?

Let your imagination run wild!

Look at Wednesday maths sheet.

First you need to crack the code!


Once you have cracked the code can you work out the answer to the addition calculation?

Thursday

  • Watch the Read, Write, Inc set 2 speed sound lesson on You Tube. – ir
  • Complete the ‘hold a sentence 1’ lesson with Rosie on the RWI You Tube page.

Solve the problem from Wednesday!

How does the ‘problem’ get resolved. Maybe you come up with an idea to protect your sandcastle, or you got the seagull to drop your towel. Maybe you got lost but were quickly found by the lifeguards or found your way to the ice-cream van!

We have talked about patterns before and how they repeat over and over again. It is best to say your pattern out loud so you can hear how it keeps repeating.

Have a go at making your own pattern using beach objects or the sheet provided. (Thursday Maths Sheet)

Maybe you could collect stones or shells next time you are at the beach and make a pattern with them.

Friday

  • Watch the Read, Write, Inc set 2 speed sound lesson on You Tube. – ou
  • Complete the set 2 spelling lesson with Rosie.
  • Spend 5 minutes on Teach Your Monster to Read (details sent to Tapestry)

Today, it is time to end of your story.

Think about a nice ending sentence or two. You might want to say how the whole day at the beach made you feel. Maybe you can’t wait to go back. Maybe you were so tired after such a briliant day, you fell fast asleep on the way home!

Now get an adult or older sibling to help you read your WHOLE story out loud to see how amazing it sounds.

Well done you!

A day at the beach is such a great day!

Have a look at the pictures in Friday’s Maths Sheet and have a go at sequencing the events.

Now it is time to add your own time to each event.

Talk to an adult about the different times that some of the things could have happened and draw these on the clock faces provided.

You could use this sheet to tell a story too!
