I hope you have enjoyed the weekend.
This is the final week of home learning online, as term ends this Thursday, 16th July 2020. I have to say I have been blown away by the effort your children have put into the home learning tasks and it’s been so lovely to see the work, videos and pictures on Class Dojo. It’s not been easy for anyone but we have all pulled together and you have done a great job! Thank you.
In maths this week we are looking at solving mathematical problems – putting into practice what we have learnt so far. Remind your child to read the question and then say what the problem is asking them to do; ask them to tell you what they know about the question (who, what, how many) if necessary underline what the question is asking you to do. Then get them to say how they might work it out – don’t forget drawing pictures or using props for these problems are a great visual support.
In English we are looking at rhymes. It is important to be able to hear rhymes and be able to match and predict/suggest a matching pair of rhyming words. Enjoy the poems.
Can you write any poems of your own?
In phonics we are practising set 2 and set 3 sounds from Read Write Inc. These can be found on you Tube
Set 1 and set 2 Red words should be practised as well so that your child can read and spell them independently.
I would recommend carrying on with some aspects of learning through the summer holidays, by listening to your child read regularly, getting them to write notes, letters and lists etc. I have also added a summer activity booklet with a variety of activities for them to complete if they want to – hopefully they will enjoy it.
Take care and enjoy the summer holidays and I am really looking forward to welcoming everyone back in September.
