Thursday – nearly half way through January already! We can’t wait until the mornings and evenings get lighter.
Online Phonics Lessons
Owls start at 9:15 . Please log on at 9:10 to be ready and waiting.
Hedgehogs start at 10:00. Please log on at 9:50 to be ready and waiting.
We will have a quick hello with the children before the lesson starts.
You will have received an email invitation to join a meeting at 9:15. We have invited all of the children in each class who are learning at home to this one session at the same time.
After our initial hello please make sure:
- a parent is in the room with you
- your microphone is muted
- your camera is turned off
We need you to do this so we are sure that the Internet signal is strong enough to deliver the lesson to a large number of children at once. You will also need a pencil and paper. Parents will need to help with these sessions to ensure their child is speaking at the computer and trying to sound the words out accurately with writing.
Phonics lesson – Go on Bug Club and play the ‘igh’ language game.
Please work through the PowerPoint about Instruction Writing. Can you remember any of the features of instruction writing. Today we are looking at imperative verbs. Can you spot the imperative verbs on slide 8. On slide 14 spin the wheel to choose an imperative verb and write a command on a piece of paper.
Thursday 14th January – Introducing imperative verbs
We are starting to practice our mental maths. On WordPress there will be mental maths sheet for the children to practice their number bonds to 10. We are working towards the children being able to complete one column in 2 minutes or faster! Please only complete one column per day – the sheet is for a whole week. They can use their fingers to help if they need to.
Children build on comparing numbers to 10 by comparing numbers up to 20.
In this step, children will be given abstract numbers and need to be encouraged to use previous learning to choose an efficient method to compare numbers.
Within examples, make sure children are also continuing to compare numbers below 10 as well as 10 and aboveWhen you have worked through the PP please complete your worksheet either One Star, Two Star or Three Star. Your groups for maths work has been sent out to you on an email. Please only complete one set of work.
