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 ‘ee’ as in eel. Ask a grown up to write this list of words. bee, see, week, need, tree. 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 ‘v’ as in van. Ask a grown up to write this list of words. van, vet, vest. 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 ‘a’ as in apple. Ask a grown up to write this list of words. ant, sat, tap. 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.

This half term our topic is Transport, we are going to be providing activities based around the ‘Barefoot Books’ Magic Train Ride.

Stop the video when it has reached 2:42 when the train leaves the Magic Wood

Literacy

We have arrived in a magic wood.  Imagine that you can see lots of magical creatures.  Can you design your own magical creature?

Red – Draw a picture of your magical creature.  Now write sentences to describe it.  What does it look like?  What can it do?  How does it move? Can you use adjectives to make your writing interesting and exciting?

Children in red group can write their words and sentence independently.

Remember use your phonics to sound out the words you need, use your tricky word tree for words that do not sound out and remember finger spaces.

Blue – Draw a picture of your magical creature.  Now write sentences to describe it.  What does it look like?  What can it do? How does it move?

Children in blue group are getting good with their writing but will need some support.  Remember use your phonics and listen to the sounds in the words you need and have a really good go with your letter formation.

Yellow – Draw a picture of your magical creature.  Can you give your creature a name?  Can you write an ‘It is…’ sentence to tell us something about it?

Children in yellow group will need you to write the word so they can copy the writing.

Maths

This week we are learning Subtraction. Can you solve these word problems? You can use objects to help you work out the answers.

Red- If you had 20 squares of chocolates and you ate 15 of them, how many squares of chocolate would you have left?

If you had 20 jellybeans and you have eaten 6 of them, how many would you have left?

If you had 20 plums and you use 13 to make jam, how many would you have left?

If you had 20 milk cartons and drink 2 of them, how may would you have left?

Can you make up your own subtraction word problems?

Blue – If you had 10 marbles and 2 of them roll away, how may would you have left?

If you have 10 sausages in a pack and you cooked 4 of them, how many sausages would you have left in the packet?

If you had 10 currant buns and 8 of them have been eaten, how many would you have left?

If you had 10 glass bottles and 3 of them smashed, how many would you have left?

Can you make up your own subtraction word problems?

Yellow – Can you work out the answers to these subtractions?  Draw the animals and cross out the correct amount to help you find the answer, count how many are left.
