Good morning Marvellous Moles! Another week is nearly done. Have you enjoyed the activities this week? Here are the tasks for today.
Today is ‘Reading Together Day’ – here is a link to lots of events and activities you may wish to join in with.
Marvellous Moles Home Learning Tasks:
Today we will be carrying on looking at ‘l/ll/le’ same sound different spellings.
We’re going to write a dictated sentence today. Before you start, think about where you will need to start writing on the paper, what sort of letter you will need to use to start your sentence, what you will need to leave in-between your words and would you will need to use to show that your sentence is finished.
Read the following sentence slowly and clearly to your child so that they can hear all the sounds.
Will and Jill let the dog swim to the middle of the pond.
When you have finished writing, read the sentence back in one go.
For our last activity about moving on and changing classes or schools we are going to think about all of the things we have really enjoyed this year, and what we are looking forward to about next year. Cody the Butterfly will help you with your ideas.
M - Mathematical Development
Today we’re going to begin to learn to tell the time.
Follow the link below to which will take you to an interactive teaching clock.
When the big hand points to the 12, it is ‘something’ o’clock
The small hand tells you the hour. So, for example when the big hand points to the 12 and the small hand points to 4, it is 4 o’clock.
Have a play with the interactive clock. Set it to various o’clock times and ask your child to tell you the time. Then challenge your child to make the clock say 1 o’clock, 2 o’clock etc.
Once you’ve got the hang of reading the time, you could ask questions such as, “What time will it be in 1 hour?” etc.
As you know, this week is all about reading. Today we’d like you to choose your favourite fairy story e.g. Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, The Elves and the Shoemaker.
Read the story together with your grown up, then draw a story map to go with it. Then you can use your story map to tell the story!
