Hello Monkeys and Elephants,

We hope that you enjoyed yesterday’s activities. Remember to complete the activity that matches the coloured sticker on the front of your work pack.

Remember to share your reading book or another story every day. 

Floppy’s Phonics

We would like you to start your day with some phonics. You can practice your speed sounds every day by following the links on our class pages.

Red group – Today we would like you to look at the letter group ‘oa’ as in goat. Ask a grown up to write this list of words. coat, road, float. Use your phonic knowledge to read the words. Now ask a grown up to read the words so you can write them. Listen carefully to the sounds in the words. Can you put one of the words into a sentence?

Blue group – Today we would like you to look at the sound ‘ve’ as in glove. Ask a grown up to write this list of words. have, give, love. Use your phonic knowledge to read the words. Now ask a grown up to read the words so you can write them. Listen carefully to the sounds in the words

Yellow group – Today we would like you to look at the sound ‘o’ as in octopus. Ask a grown up to write this list of words. on, got, pod. With your grown up use your phonic knowledge to read the words and have a go at copying the words.

Remember, say the sound, read the word.

Maths

Red– Number bonds to 10. Can you solve the number problems? How many more spots do you need to make 10? Draw the part whole model in your workbook. You can use a number line/ objects to work out your answer. 

Blue– Take two plates and use objects, lego/ animals/ raisins/ sweets, count ten out. Place 7 objects on one plate. How many is on the other plate? 3. Can you write this as a number sentence 7+3= 10. Repeat this to make different ways to make 10.

Yellow– Ask an adult to write the numbers 0-10 on a piece of paper and cut them out, if you have a set number cards you can use them too.

Ask an adult to hide the numbers around the home/ garden. Go on a number hunt. What number did you find? When you have found them, can you put them in the correct order?

Mindfulness/PSHE

Pinwheel breathing

Having an object to focus on is a great way to help improve concentration during mindfulness activities. The first step is to use the template to create your own pinwheel. Decorate your pinwheel however you like. It will be your secret weapon so make it special.

Pinwheel Pattern | Printable Arts, Crafts and Skills Sheets

Now we are going to practice making the pinwheel spin as we exhale.

Take a deep breath in… 1… 2… 3… Now blow out… 1… 2… 3…

Ask your child these questions as they blow their pinwheel.

What is moving your pinwheel?

Can you feel the air moving in through your nose?

Can you feel the air moving out through your nose?

Does the air feel cold or warm on the way in?

Does the air feel cold or warm on the way out?

Can you hear your breath?

What does it sound like?

Thank you.
