You will see 3 lessons included for everyday, you can use these links to help provide a schedule to your child's learning at home, feel free to pick and choose what you would like your child to access.
I will be posting regular activities of extra challenges you can do at home below.
This week, 22/06/2020 - 26/06/2020, it is sports week and Mr Willis is posting daily challenges for you to complete at home! Complete your challenges and send your scores to Mr Willis on twitter. I have posted the challenges below, I can’t wait to see how you all get on!
First challenge for this week!
I hope you all enjoyed the challenges last week on the story ‘What the Ladybird Heard’. This week our story will be ‘Commotion in the Ocean’, I will be posting challenges that link with the story throughout the week! Today I would like you all to listen to the story and talk about your favourite parts, what was your favourite animal? What do you know already about animals that live under the sea? Can you describe some of the animals in the story and what they look like? I have posted the link to the story below.
A fun game to play is guess who! Someone in the family can draw a picture of an animal on a post it note and stick it on your forehead, it is your job to ask questions to the rest of the family to try and find out what animal you are! We have all played this game together in class and loved it! Have fun and tweet me how you get on!
A fun challenge today to finish off the week!
You will need:
A stick (or some rolled up paper)
This week as we have focused on the story ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ I would like you to have a go at creating your own stick puppets to help you retell the story! You need to draw some pictures of the different characters in the story and then cut them out and attach a stick, or some rolled up paper in a stick shape, to the bottom of your picture to make your own puppet to use! Then have a go at listening to the story again and see if you can use your characters to help you retell the story! Have fun and tweet me your fabulous puppets!
Morning everyone, I have a math challenge today!
Adults you will need:
First you need to draw a picture on a piece of paper, I have drawn a ladybird on mine to link with our animal topic and the story from the last few days ‘What the Ladybird Heard’, then the idea is to make your own math jigsaw for your child. You will need to cut your picture into strips or squares and label the pieces from 1-10, or for a challenge 1-20. Then children it is your job to piece your jigsaw together by putting the numbers into the correct order!
I have posted some example pictures below of one that I have made at home. I would love to see yours so remember to tweet me your math jigsaws!
Extra challenge: Children once you have pieced together your jigsaw can you have a go at creating your own one now? Draw your own picture and label it with numbers 1-10/1-20. Ask your adult if you need help, you could ask your sibling or another adult to complete your jigsaw then!
For today’s challenge if you enjoyed reading the story ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ from yesterday then have another listen and see if you can spot the rhyming words in the story! See how many you can find and write a list of all of the words! If you want an extra challenge you could try and think of your own rhyming words to match the ones you have found! Good luck!
Today I would like you to listen to the story ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ on You Tube. The story uses describing words for all of the animals, for example ‘a handsome horse and a dainty dog’.
For your challenge I would like you to draw an animal from the story and think of some different describing words for them. What do they look like? Do they have pointy ears? Is their fur soft? What colour are they? Write down your descriptions and draw your pictures and tweet me your wonderful ideas. I will be giving out dojo’s!
Morning everyone, I have a math challenge for you all this morning!
You will need:
10 objects (pasta, sweets or fruit etc)
Your job is to count out 10 objects and to share those objects between 2 plates, I want you to find as many different ways you can split the objects between the plates and have a go at writing your own sums on the paper. Can you find as many different ways to make 10 by sharing the objects? I have attached some examples!
Good luck and tweet me your results!
A fun reading challenge today! Adults hide some different objects around your house, maybe a teddy bear or some toys, then write down some simple sentence clues to help your child find them.
On the bed
In the draw
Next to the sink
On top of the stool
Children it is your job to read the sentences to help you find the toys.
Let me know when you have completed your hunt! Good luck!
Morning everyone I have a phonic challenge this morning! Adults it is very easy to set up, choose some objects from your house and place them together on the floor, then write the name of the objects on some paper. Children it is your job to try and read the word and then match the object to the correct word! I have posted my own example below. Good Luck!
Morning everyone, as one of the activities to start off our new animal topic, I thought for today’s challenge you could draw/paint/make your favourite animal. I have attached some arty ideas below that you could make. Then have a go at writing your own sentence to describe your favourite animal. Does it have a long tail? Does it have soft fur? What colour is it? Remember to tweet me your designs, I’d love to see!
Over the half term I decided to make some story stones for the classroom, the idea is to inspire creative storytelling! I thought for today’s challenge you could have a go at choosing a few stones that I have made to create your own stories! You could film yourself telling a story, draw pictures of your story or write some sentences about it! I’d love to see what stories you create!
As our new topic is food glorious food, a nice activity you can do is to make your own picnic of all of your favourite foods and have a picnic either in your house or in your garden together with your family. Can you have a go at reading ‘Cat’s Picnic’ below and segmenting and blending the words!
A lovely activity for you to try at home to create your own rainbow of colours! Use skittles and place them around the edge of a plate in a colour pattern, then add warm water to the centre of the plate and watch the rainbow appear!
In RP we always love to have a little dance and keep active! We learnt some actions from the Super Movers alphabet song. Have a little dance at home to this song and follow the actions on screen! The link is attached below for you. Have fun!
A math challenge today! Have a go at measuring different items in your house using pasta shells. Record your results in a table and then work out what item is the tallest/shortest?
A fun bingo game of activities for you to complete at home!
Have a go at singing the ‘Five Currant Buns’ nursery rhyme and do the actions as well! Then can you see if you can spot the rhyming words in the song? You could write down the rhyming words and for an extra challenge see if you can think of any more rhyming words to match the ones you have found!
A math challenge today! Use the link below to listen to the story ‘Give Me Half’, then have a go at making your own halves using things from your house. I have posted some examples below. You could cut out your own circle for a pizza and cut it in half; share some cookies in half; or half a cake or piece of fruit.
