Term 6 week 5
This week we are looking at pirates. See if you can find any pirate stories.
What might you see through a telescope. Write a sentence. Label a pirate ship.
Early Learning Goal
Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They also read some common irregular words. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read.
Early Learning Goal
Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.
Keep counting, we should now be secure with in 20.
Early Learning Goal
Children count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.
Early Learning Goal
Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.
Have a look at the map, use direction and positional language to plot some point.
Pretend you are a robot and give directions - 2 steps forward, 1 back etc.
Go through all of the sounds we have learnt, what word starts with that sound, play eye spy.
Make cvc, ccvc, cvcc words using the sounds. How many letters? How many sounds?
Play full circle on ICT games.
Use sentence starters to write sentences.
I can see .......
I went to ........
I like ..........
Read all tricky words.
Write tricky words.
Put tricky words in a sentence.
Listen to the tricky word song.
Term 6 Week 4
Continuing Mr Grinling's adventures.
If Mr Grinling had to get to his lighthouse another way how would he travel. Maybe he likes to surf.
Try to write a sentence. I like to surf because .......
Label a light house using the sounds you know.
Make up a picnic for Mr Grinling, what would he like to eat?
Number bonds. Try to find all the numbers which add up to 6, then 8, then 10. Can you find a pattern if you write the number sentences down.
Sounds oy and ir
Try to read and then write some words with these sounds in. Practise tricky words and play some games such as bingo or poop deck pirates.
Knowledge of the world
Read through the PP and discuss some of the points to keep safe.
Term 6 Week 3
Our learning this week will be based on the story The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch.
Have a think about light houses, what are they for? Where would you find one? Can you draw a lighthouse or make one with junk modeling.
Listen to the story.
Write a list for lunch. Draw your favourite lunchbox and label.
Have a think about measuring. In school we will use some cubes to measure. At home you could use a rule or tape. Use language longer, shorter, identify objects which are longer or shorter than others.
Read through the PP, try to read and write some of the words.
Have a look at the yes no questions.
Term 6 Week 2
Hi Acorns, I hope you are all well.
I look forward to welcoming some of you back this week. Online learning will be following the same theme so you won't miss out if you have chosen to stay at home.
This next week I will obviously need to recap what the children have been doing and attempt to assess where they are. Therefore phonics will be very much a recap and consolidate week. This is fairly normal at this time of year so that we really try to embed the prior learning so no one will be missing out on new learning.
English and Knowledge of the World
Have a look at the PP and find the waters cycle song. Draw a picture similar to the one on the PP and label with some of the words, rain, cloud, sun, sea.
Pour some water onto a pathway or pavement. Draw a line around it, what happens? Talk about where the water goes. It needs to be a sunny day.
Have a think about teen numbers, what do those numerals mean? Look at the PP, the language we use is, 1 lot of ten and ?1s.
Remember counting to 20 and knowing what those numbers mean.
Go through all of the sounds learnt.
Read words and then write some words.
Then try to put some of the words in a sentence.
Keep learning the tricky words.
Term 6 Week 1
Hi again Acorns, I hope you had a lovely half term. I have been in to the class room to try to get it ready for when some of you come back. It looks a bit different now and you will each have your own separate table. If you are staying at home for a bit longer I will continue to put weekly learning online and in Acorn class it will be the same as we are going to attempt at school.
This term we will be learning about water, starting with rock pools.
English and KW
Have a listen to the story and look at the rock pool clip.
You may even be able to go to the sea and find some rock pools to have a look in. I think that’s allowed now?
If you can print off the sheet you could label the creatures in the rock pool or try to write a few on your white board. Try to think of some adjectives, words which describe the creatures. A spiky starfish. A stripy fish.
Have a look at some real coins. Can you recognise what the coins are? What is their value? Why is a 5p smaller than a 2p? What coins do you need to buy the ice cream? Can you use different coins? Make a shop with prices to 10p and try to work out different ways to make the value.
This week the new sound is ue, which can be written ue, u_e, ew. Have a look at the PP, read the words, write some words down on your white board, try to put some words into a sentence.
Carry on practising the tricky words and play some games to consolidate the sounds already learnt.
Handwriting this week is p,q,r,s,t
