Work From Home 

 

We are very impressed with how busy you have been whilst you've been at home.

Ruben has sent in some of his writing. Your writing - and drawing - is duper Ruben. Well done! Keep it up.

                    

We can see that you have been learning your tricky sounds and writing sentences with those sounds in! Fabulous Phonics Ruben!

  

We are very impressed with how busy you have been whilst you've been at home. Emily has sent in some of her work to share. We think it's fabulous Emily!

  Look at Emily's super writing and drawing! She has remembered all her high 5 rules!

 Emily has been a busy bee using her number line to add and take away. Well done.

Emily and her mum looked at some Jackson Pollock spatter painting. She made her own spatter picture. It looks good enough to go in a gallery Emily! 

You have worked very hard, well done!

Maths

Maths challenge!

In the 'Files to Download', (or you could just look at them on your screen), is a robot number bond sheet. Can you help the robot to find the missing numbers?

To do this count out 10 objects such as grapes, sultanas, buttons etc.

Have a look at how many the robot is holding, e.g. if he is holding 5 as in the picture below take 5 away from your pile. How many are left? That is the missing number! Can you say your number sentence? e.g. '5 and 5 more make 10 altogether!'

Write it on the sheet or on a piece of paper if you can't print it out. Check how to write your numbers on a number formation mat.

Here is a lovely book offers support to children who are feeling worried about Coronavirus and the changes it has brought to their lives.

Story Time

Look out for a story each week from your teachers in F2!

Last week Miss Steele read 'Emily's Paintbox'. Have a look to see which book Mrs Wellens has chosen this week.

Miss Steele has been busy making a rainbow out of objects in her house. Can you spot the pattern? Can you have a go at making your own rainbow using objects from your house? I wonder what patterns you will make?  We would love to see some photos on our twitter page. 

 

The Literacy Trust  website below is useful and has lots of age appropriate ideas to support learning at home.

Writing

We use our high 5 rules to help us with our writing (you can download one at the bottom of the page). Try to write a sentence or two every day. Remember to say your sentence out loud and keep reading it as you write to check it makes sense. Sound out words as you write them. Use your word mat (see the link at the bottom of the page) to help you form your letters properly. 

 

Reading

It is important to read a little every day.

 

Read together every day

Reading with your child continues to be really important so keep reading lots of different books together. Most picture books will be too hard for a child of this age to read alone, but it’s good for them just to listen to a story or information book and talk about the pictures with you.

Talk about the book before you begin reading

Before reading a book together, always talk about the title, the pictures and the information on the cover (front and back). If it’s new, ask what your child thinks the book might be about. If it’s an old favourite then talk about the bits you love most! Don’t worry if some books get chosen again and again!

Read with different voices

When reading aloud use lots of expression and try different voices for different characters. Get your child to join in with bits too, such as, ‘They pulled and they pulled!’ and ‘Fee, fi, fo, fom...’. See if your child can copy you!

Ask each other questions

Talk about the stories and information books when you’ve finished reading together and ask questions. What did you like best? Why did the tiger let Floppy go? Have you ever played a trick on anybody? Get your child to ask you questions too.

Retell stories and events

Ask your child about things that happened at school or with their friends. Sometimes, after you’ve shared a story or watched a TV programme, ask your child to tell you about it. Help them by asking 2What happened first? What next? And then what?2

Why not share an eBooks together now?

Below are free, downloadable resources aimed at homeschoolin. The activity sheets  include simple tasks, questions, prayers and adapted scriptures. They’ll help children learn, reflect, and stand in solidarity with children around the world.
