Home Learning Week Commencing Monday 13th

Week beginning Monday 13th July 2020

For the last full week of term, we will be suggesting activities to do with your child at home. This includes a daily letters and sounds and maths activity and a topic based idea too. We would like to thank you for all of your hard work in supporting your child’s learning.

This is a reminder to download and keep your child’s Tapestry journal, if you haven’t already done so.


If you have any queries or concerns, please post these on tapestry and we will get back to you as quickly as we can.


We look forward to seeing you for the picnic on Monday!


Letters and Sounds:
Each day-whenever possible- we would like your child to be reading- Bug Club is great to use and also please keep practising the tricky words and sounds in their sound book.
Don’t forget to collect your rewards on Bug Club as you answer the quiz when you have finished reading the book !

Here are this week’s lessons: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP_FbjYUP_UtldV2K_-niWw beginning with Lesson 60


Our topic this term is 'Will you read me a story?' and each week we will be learning a different traditional story.
Please listen to this week’s story of ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ which will be uploaded to Tapestry ready for Monday morning.


1. After listening to Mrs Page read the story of ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ on Tapestry, ask your child to draw a picture of the characters in the story. Can they use their phonic skills to write labels to go with their picture ?
2. Can they draw a picture of their favourite part of the story and write a sentence to explain what is happening? Ask your child to tell you the important rules when writing a good sentence. ( A sentence needs to start with a capital letter, when you write you need to remember to leave 'finger spaces' between the words, it needs to make sense and you need to remember to put a 'full stop' at the end of the sentence.)
3. Can you help your child to imagine what good deed they could imagine the elves doing during the night at your house ? Can they describe what they might wake up in the morning and see, in a sentence?


4.On ‘Phonics play’ please can your child play ‘Giggling Grapheme’ phase 2 or 3? https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/grab-a-giggling-grapheme
'Education city' please can your child play ‘Sparkler’ game on 'English 2’.



5. On 'letterjoin' can they practice the letters in the words ‘e l v e s’ and
‘s h o e m a k e r ‘?


6. Can your child write a thank you note to the elves? I wonder if the elves will write back?



7. Can your child use their creative skills to design a pair of shoes? Once your child has drawn their design ask them to talk about what materials they have used and what all the parts of their shoes are.


8. Can your child create a shoe shop? They might like to add price labels, and ask family members to use real money to buy some shoes! Can you ask your child how many pairs they have altogether? Can they count in twos? If they sell some, how many do they have left?


Here is a link with a fun song to learn how to tie your shoes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKlB5UCrUrU
