Before 0900- Wake Up and Get Dressed
Get ready for the day with independence; have a wash, dress yourself, eat breakfast and brush your teeth.
0900-0930 - Reading
Choose a book of your choice to read to yourself or share it with someone in your family, discuss it and enjoy it.
You could log on to Tapestry to listen to one of the teachers read a story! Which Mystery Teacher will be reading your story today? What did you like about the story? Why?
You could also watch a CBeebies bedtime story if you would like to, or search Youtube for stories.
Good children’s authors to search for include: Julia Donaldson, Oliver Jeffers, Giles Andreae, Sophy Henn, Morag Hood, Jill Murphy, Emily Gravett, Nick Sharratt.
0930-1000- Maths Challenge
Warm up by counting to 20, forwards and backwards. You can watch Ms Woolford's video on Tapestry if you want to.
Choose another challenge today from the appropriate level grid - these were uploaded on Monday 18th in the 'Additional Resources' section. We hope that these Maths Challenges are really giving your child the opportunity to review and secure their learning from this term.
1000-1030- Home Learning Challenge (to continue after Break Time until 1130)
You could choose a challenge from any of the three Home Learning Challenge grids or do some PE activities.
1030-1100 Break Time
Have one healthy snack: a banana, apple, orange etc. with a glass of milk or water. Take some time to relax, maybe you could listen to another story online.
1100 - 1130- Home Learning Challenge
Continue your Home Learning Challenge that you started – don’t forget to try and upload it to Tapestry so that we can see it!
1130 - 1200 – Writing Challenge
To warm up, start with some handwriting practice - today is 'v'. You could watch Mrs Cunningham's video on Tapestry to help you.
Today we are going to write some sentences about your chosen life cycle. To really challenge yourself try and write a sentence for each stage or picture you have drawn on your life cycle plan you made yesterday. Remember to keep these short and simple. Say them out loud, repeat them, count how many words and use the scaffold lines if needed (you could always watch the writing support video again on Tapestry for top tips!). Don’t forget your capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We have included some visuals to help you with this.
Example simple sentences (that match my life cycle from yesterday):
1200 - 1300 - Lunchtime
1300- 1330 - Phonics
Open Tapestry and watch the video ‘Set 1 Speed Sounds.’ Say the sounds along with Miss Bailey; can you remember them all and say them before she does? You should watch and say your Speed Sounds every single day.
Now you have practised your Speed Sounds, we are going to lean a brand new sound! Watch Miss Golding's video on Tapestry - 'air - Set 2 Sound Lesson'.
In the 'Additional Resources' section you will find the 'air' words to practise reading and writing with your lead ins.
1330 Onwards- Plan, Do, Review
Encourage your child to make a Learning Choice from a list of options (change these to suit) but they should include selecting from:
Indoor exercise (Cosmic Yoga - found on YouTube or GoNoodle);
Go for an afternoon walk;
A Home Learning Challenge;
A Forest School Challenge;
Be creative (craft, painting, playdough, baking);
Exercise (ride your bike, go for a run, play football/rugby);
Quiet activity (puzzle, colouring, board game);
Screen time on a learning wesbite/app (links can be found on the ‘Useful Websites to Support Home Learning’ section of our COVID-19 Yr R Page).
When your child has made their choice, discuss: Where are they going to do their Learning Choice? What exactly are they going to be doing? How are they going to do it?
When they have completed their Learning Choice, Review it. What went well? How could they improve it? You could revisit it tomorrow afternoon to improve. What have they learnt?
When you have finished, enjoy some free time to yourself or to spend with your family.
We hope you have had a lovely day and we can’t wait to see your uploads on Tapestry.
