I hope you are all happy and healthy.
Please find below some learning activities for you to complete at home with help from an adult whilst school is closed.
New activities will be added on Tuesdays and Thursdays during term time.
Young children should be appropriately supervised when using online resources. I appreciate that not everyone will have access to a printer so you may want to record your work in your home school sharing book, an exercise book or a notebook.
Remember to use your superhero mindset!
This week, in addition to any new reading scheme books you took home last week I would like you to read some ebooks.

Teach Your Monsters to Read
I have registered the class with the online phonics/reading resource ‘Teach Your Monster to Read’ which can be accessed at http://www.teachyourmonstertoread.com/u/768037.
Your child’s logon details are the same as their PurpleMash logins.
(KH – I have corrected spelling of your name on PurpleMash. Sorry!)
I have started your child on one of three levels to suit their ability but they may find the start a bit easy but this will build their confidence before it becomes more challenging as their journey in the online game progresses.
This app is free to use online and for a limited time it is free to download the apple / android app due to disruption caused by coronavirus (usually £4.99). If you use the app then set the star code to 768037.
- Listen to an oral story
‘Dragon/Dinosaur’ is told by Wilf Merttens at https://player.hamiltontrust.org.uk/story_telling_display.php?cid=197
- Respond to the story
- What fierce, scary creatures did the people in the town try to frighten away the dragon dinosaur with?
- Draw the creatures on the Fierce, Scary Creatures page or in your exercise book/notebook. Label each one with their name.
- In the empty spaces, draw and name other fierce and scary creatures that could have been used to frighten the Dragon Dinosaur.
- Now for some writing
- On My Favourite Part of the Story page or in your exercise book/notebook, draw a picture of the bit you liked most.
- Write sentences explaining why you liked that bit the most.
- The Useful Words will help you with spellings.
When writing remember to think it, say it, like it, write it and read it again.
Choose your writing peak challenge below.
|Can I use finger spaces?|
|Can I use capital letters and full stop for every sentence?|
|Can I use the conjunction ‘because’ in a sentence?|
See separate activities to practise counting in 10p and 1ps. This includes a reminder, two levels of practice sheet (if no printer, write answers in home school sharing book, exercise book or a notebook), guidance if you get a bit stuck and a few questions to check your understanding. All the answers are provided so that you can ‘tick or fix’ your work with an adult.
