Home Learning if you are self-isolating w/c: 23/11/2020

Literacy

This week we are reading the story Kipper's Birthday. We are learning about birthdays and thinking about turning five.

 

Listen to the story (see link below)

Discuss what happened. Why did they get the day wrong?

 

 

Can you write your own party invitation?

Kipper's Birthday by Mick Inkpen

Can you identify the sounds on the sound mat? Use the sound mat to find the letters that you are writing!

Maths 

This week in maths we are thinking  about different ways of making the number five. 

 

Watch the Number blocks episode 'The Whole of Me.'

Discuss the different parts that make the whole. 

 

Can you use the part-part-whole model to show different ways of making five? Use or draw 5 objects and share them in different ways.

 

Can you explain your model using the words 'part' and 'whole'?

 

Phonics

This week we are learning the sounds:

 

h   b   f  ff

 

Can you say their letter names and sounds?

Listen to the Jolly Phonics songs for these sounds on Youtube.

 

Play the 'I spy' game, attached below. Can you find objects starting with 'h' 'b' or 'f'?

 

'ff' is a digraph, this means that two letters make one sound. This digraph usually comes at the end of words like cuff, huff and puff or in the middle of longer words like muffin or puffin.

 

We are also learning to read and write the tricky word 'go' (remember tricky words are words that we cannot sound out).

Listen to the tricky words song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvMyssfAUx0&t=6s

 

Can you practise writing the new letters and tricky word that you have learned?

This week we are learning about friendship and kindness, using the story of The Rainbow Fish.

 

Literacy

Listen to the story below and think about Rainbow Fish's choices.

 

  • How did he make the other fish feel when he kept all of the scales?
  • How did they all feel when Rainbow Fish shared his scales?

 

Can you write how to be a good friend? Complete the sentence 'A good friend...'

Can you think of a time when someone has been a good friend to you? Make a card to say thank you!

Maths 

 

This week, in maths, we are learning that when we separate or arrange  numbers in different ways, the number is still the same.

 

Watch the Numberblocks episode: 'Stampolines'

 

  • Can you get 3 objects and arrange them in different ways?
  • Can you do this with 4 or 5 objects?
  • Now make a poster to show some of the different ways you arranged them

Phonics

This week we are learning the sounds:

 

ck   e   u  r 

 

Can you say their letter names and sounds?

Listen to the Jolly Phonics songs for these sounds on Youtube.

 

Play the 'I spy' game, attached below. Can you find objects starting with 'e' 'u' 'r' or ending in 'ck'?

 

'ck' is a digraph, this means that two letters make one sound. This digraph usually comes at the end of words like duck rock and lock.

 

We are also learning to read and write the tricky word 'no' (remember tricky words are words that we cannot sound out).

Listen to the tricky words song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvMyssfAUx0&t=6s

 

Can you practise writing the new letters and tricky word that you have learned?

Please send your work (pictures of your work) to me at: chough@intakefarm.notts.sch.uk

Pre-cursive letter formation

At Intake Farm we use cursive writing. We start in the Foundation Stage, using pre-cursive letter formation. This helps children to start all letters from the line and prepares children for joining letters later on.

 

Please use the rhymes on the document to help your child to practise forming letters correctly. 

We have been learning about the real superheroes, who help us everyday!

We took on the role of Police officers and detectives to investigate the crime of our stolen dinosaurs!

Campfire Day!

Phonics

 

We have been doing lots of listening, exploring environmental sounds, instrumental sounds and rhythms we can make with our bodies. We have also been learning about rhyming words and spotting these in songs and stories.


We are now starting to learn letter names and sounds. So far we have learned s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r and the tricky words 'I' 'the' 'to' and 'no.' 

 

We have enjoyed singing the Jolly Phonics songs and writing the letters. We have been listening to the sounds in words, sorting objects by their initial sounds and segmenting and blending the sounds in words.

 

Can you teach your family the Jolly Phonics songs?

Can you find things at home or outside, with these initial letter sounds?

Can you practise writing the letters?

 

Remember tricky words are words that we cannot sound out, we have to learn to recognise them by sight!
