Thank you to all of our children, parents and families who are working with us during this difficult time of COVID 19 and school closure. Our class pages are full of great ideas for you to use at home. Please come and collect packs of paper and pencils to help you with your great work at home. We are open between 9am and 11 am each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Week 2 (23.3.2020)

Literacy

 

Due to not being at school we did not have chance to finish our Handa Surprise topic.  Please read through the story and try to write short sentences about the story.

Ask your child....

Can you tell me what happened in the story?  (we made up some actions to support)

Say the sentence you want to write.

Clap the sentence you want to write.

Count how many words are in the sentence.

Write the sentence. 

Repeat with each sentence. 

Please remember I don't expect children to write the whole story.  4 or 5 short sentences will be great and they don't have to do it al in one go! smiley

Why not take a photo?

Topic Challenge

 

Challenge 1!

Draw a picture of an animal from our Handa's Surprise story. 

Label it or challenge yourself to write a sentence about your drawing. 

 

eg The elephant took the mango. 

Please be aware that your child has not been taught every sound and they need to use their phonics and sounds which they know to support them to write.  They should have the RWI sound mat to support them. 

 

Challenge 2!

Lets take advantage of this lovely weather! Go on a hunt around the garden.  What did you see? Draw and write what you saw. 

I did this with my children and they loved finding spiders, bees and ladybirds. 

 

Don't forget to bring back to school or email me all the activities you have done at home! This can be pictures, photos, writing or anything else you can think of! 

 

 

Please feel free to email me all the activities you are getting up to at home!
