For ALL Pandas
Phonics – following the live daily Ruth Miskin YouTube lessons.
Reading – Oxford Owl Reading books – here is a direct link to the reading books which match your child’s book band colour. If you are not sure which colour they are on please ask.
Writing – Positive Thinking is so important, especially at the moment, so here are some tasks with positivity in mind. Year 1 use your neatest writing and push yourself to use adjectives and a range of punctuation (!?,). Reception you can draw on your sheet and a grown up can write what you say or you can write too if you want to stretch yourself.
Challenge – How many ice cubes can you stand in a tower before it falls over? To make it even harder perhaps use tweezers or tongs to pick them up. Good luck! Take a photo and count how many ice cubes are in your tallest tower.
Reception – Maths
Adding to 20. Again if possible add to this with some everyday adding around the house. Add the total number of knives to the forks etc. when eating together.
Enjoy playing this Polar regions Bingo Game.
Year 1 – Maths
Subtraction – Crossing ten (2)
Please encourage your child to read the questions independently, then ask them what needs to be done (try and avoid telling them what needs to be done so that they have some thinking time). If they need some more support perhaps draw a number line for them to work with. We do not use formal column methods for addition or subtraction in Year 1.
I have scheduled a Zoom Class Meeting for Friday 15th January, at 2pm I thought it would be nice to have a catch up. If you are going to join us can you ask your child if they have anything they would like to share with everyone, perhaps some news or a piece of work they have enjoyed. I will post the link on Class Dojo shortly.
