Week Beginning: 6th July 2020
Hello Wonderful Wrens,
We hope you all had a great week last week designing your rafts and bridges for The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Well done to Benjamin, Ellisia, Georgie, Nancy, Rosie, Samuel and Toby for earning your first reward on Teach Your Monster to Read.
This week we are off to the seaside! Who wants an ice-cream? Who can build the best sandcastle? What have caught in your fishing net in the rockpools? I bet you love the beach as much as we do…..
We will use all of these ideas in a story this week and your Maths problem solving involves ice-creams! Yum.
Take care and have fun.
Mrs Leaford and Mrs Nixon 😊
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.
This week the focus for our literacy work is The Seaside.
This week we will be completing Maths activities linked to our seaside theme. These activities will cover a range of topics linked to our work in Maths this year.
We are off on a trip to the beach today. Can you write a list of the things we need to take with us?
What will we need to keep us safe in the sun?
What will we need to play with?
What will we need to eat?
Complete the addition colour by number activity today (named Monday Maths).
Use 1 of the methods below to find the answers (^^^ is the most tricky method):
^ use objects to help you find the answer
^^ use a number line to help you find the answer
^^^ count on or back mentally
Wow! It is so beautiful at the beach. Draw or paint a picture of yourself on the beach. Can you add extra details to your picture?
Look at the example pictures (named Literacy Tuesday) to give you some ideas.
Ice cream problem solving today. Look at sheet named Tuesday Maths.
Do you think you will be able to find all the different ice cream choices?
(If you do not want to print the sheet your child could draw ice creams on a piece of paper to show the answers)
Using the picture you created yesterday complete the seaside senses poem (named Wednesday Literacy).
Remember to try and sound out words on your own.
We would love to see your completed pictures and poems on Tapestry. If you are happy for them to be included on the school website then please let us know in the observation.
It’s hot at the beach today. Time for an ice-cream to cool down.
Look at the activity named Wednesday Maths.
Work out the cost of each ice cream.
Decide whether you want to do the single scoop ice creams or the ice creams with 3 scoops (or all of them!). The ice creams with 3 scoops are the trickiest.
(If you do not want to print the sheet your child could work out the answers on the screen, and write the answers on a piece of paper)
Watch out for the crabs! Today you are going to draw and label what you might find in a rockpool. Use the tock pool template to draw on or create your own and look at the rock pool pictures and identification sheet to help you think of some good ideas.
Have a go at playing this fish game called ‘Fish Tank.’ You have to look at the number in the box, work out a Maths number sentence that gives you that answer and then catch that number of fish. E.g if the number in the box is 5, you might write down 4+1=5 or 7-2=5. Then catch 5 fish.
Pick one interesting animal or thing from your rock pool and try and find out some more information about it. Using kiddle with an older sibling or an adult is a good place to start. Take a look at the rock-pool powerpoint too to give you some more information.
Can you write down some facts that you didn’t know before today?
Have a go at setting up your own seaside shop. You might decide to sell ice-creams, fishing rods, beach balls, sweets, swimming costumes or shorts, googles, summer hats, beach toys. You can go round your house to find any items that might be sold in your shop or you could use the pictures provided.
Now think about how much they might cost. 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50, £1 or £2. You could label your items and then role play playing the part of the shop keeper or the customer. Have fun!
