Hello Crocodiles,

Thank you for all the lovely emails of your superhero pictures yesterday. I am so proud of all of your letter formation, you have been working hard to write each letter correctly! 🙂

Here are today’s home learning activities:

Phonics-

Please can you run through each letter of the alphabet with your child on the video below- encourage them to say the sound for each letter.

Speed Read

Speed Read with support

Can you please recap the letters a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h.

Introduce I:

i as in insect

Write down these letters with spaces inbetween on a piece of paper:

a  d  g  i  c

b  i  e  f  h

Can your child say the sound for each letter? Can your child find the sound ‘i as in insect in both lines?’

You could play a letter hunt for these letters in your house using everyday objects. Can they find the letter ‘i’ in the title of a book? On a phone?

Make it easier- Can your child find the first letter of their name on objects in your house?

Challenge– For our older children can they read the words by reading the sounds individually and then blending them together. E.g – “p i t – pit”

Maths-

Can you watch the following video with your child? Do they recognise a circle, square, triangle, rectangle?

Remind your child of the features of each shape:

Circle- a circle has one side and goes round and round. (Some children may say wheel- you can say “It does look like a wheel as it goes round and round but it is called a circle”)

Triangle- has three sides and three pointy corners.

Square- has four sides all exactly the same length as each other and 4 corners.

Rectangle- has four sides- two long and two short and 4 corners. (like a door)

Can you go on a shape hunt either in your house or in your local area? Our older children can take some paper or a checklist to record their findings on while our younger children will enjoy discussing what they see as they walk round. Your child could also take a photograph of each shape they find on a tablet or mobile device.

Thank you

Miss Crossley
