​Hello Everyone

I will be adding activities here on our class page each day for children to complete.  Click the links for each lesson and you will be directed to an explanation video of the activity and the activity to complete.  There is no expectation for children to complete all activities every day. I am fully aware at this age it is difficult for children to sit and concentrate for long periods of time, especially when children are not in a school environment. All activities will remain on the page so you can complete them as and when you wish at a time that suits you! I will put on a mixture of numeracy, literacy and topic activities each day, not necessarily all every day.

Wake Up Shake Up

Wake Up Shake Up is something we do every morning in class to wake up our bodies and brains. Children might enjoy doing this at home each day before they start their home learning.

Topic

We will begin to start learning about our new topic 'Under the Sea'. Below is a link to the telling of the story 'The Rainbow Fish'. After listening to the story children can complete the activity. The Rainbow Fish has sent a letter to children asking for their help to give him back his colourful scales. Children can colour or decorate the fish any way they wish. I'd love to see pictures of everyone's Rainbow Fish!

Numeracy

This week's work will be focusing on addition and subtraction. Today's session is focusing on combining two groups of numbers.

Before the Christmas break we were learning all about number sentences and how we represent a calculation e.g. 2 + 1 = 3. Children can complete these calculations using a number of objects from home for support e.g. blocks, teddies, toy cars plastic cups etc.

Autumn Term - 1st Half 

​​​​​​This half term our topic is 'Characters'. So far we have looked at the story 'Dogger' by Shirley Hughes where the children talked about the different characters and used our story chair during a 'hot-seating' activity to imagine that they were the different characters from the story.

Next we looked at 'Each Peach Pear Plum' by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. We looked at the characters in this story and focused on a different one each week. We talked about good and bad characters and enjoyed taking part in some more 'hot-seating'. The children helped to create a story map for Each Peach Pear Plum and could use this to retell the story to each other.

We are currently looking at 'The Enormous Turnip' and will be linking this in to our phonics and also looking at keeping healthy. The children will be having a go at changing some of the details in the story to create their own versions.

 This PowerPoint presentation shows children how lowercase letters of the alphabet should be formed in the precursive way:

Dough disco involves moulding dough in time to music and performing different actions such as rolling it into a ball, flattening it, putting each individual finger into the dough, rolling it into a sausage and squeezing it. This activity helps to strengthen children's fine motor muscles to enable them to develop their pencil grip which in turn will help to develop their writing skills. But most of all it's fun!​
