Panda Class Overview of Learning w/c 15th June 2020 Hi Panda Class – I hope you have had a good week. Our first week back at school went well. All of the activities below are being done in school and will be fine for work at home too. Maths – This week in maths in class we are recapping recognising and writing accurately our numbers to 20. Then, there are a series of Maths Activity sheets which all involve working with numbers to 20 and other aspects of maths. Maths Activity Mats 15th June Please aim to complete all the sheets in a week. If your child does not like sitting to complete the work, by all means work practically where possible and use resources to hand to pose similar questions. Reading – Please aim to read each day with your child. There are resources on Oxford Owls website if you have run out of books. Phonics – Ruth Miskin’s Read Write Inc work is still being shown on line – the first lesson is at 9:30 am daily, but if you don’t see that one then they are usually available to view at another time. Please review all Set 1, 2 & 3 sounds. The aim is for your child to say the sound when shown and then to be able to have a go at writing the sounds accurately too. Writing – As we are growing runner beans in school, I thought it would be nice to read the story of Jack and The Beanstalk with the children. The writing activity this week is to use the writing prompt pictures to think of a sentence, rehearse it, say it out loud and write the sentences about the pictures shown. Jack and the Beanstalk writing activity Something a bit different… This week we are going to do a little bit of an experiment, we are going to grow some cress just like Mr Bloom! You can watch how to make his cress-head here https://childrens-binary.files.bbci.co.uk/childrens-binarystore/cbeebies/cbeebies-pdf-mr_blooms_nursery_cressheads.pdf We are going to try growing cress in the shade, the sun, sand, cotton wool and soil. We are going to predict which cress will grow the best and check it each day to find out if we are right! Have a good week and keep sending in the super work! Best wishes Mandy Turner.
