Home Learning Tasks for The Wonderful Wolves
Good Morning, everyone. I hope you enjoyed what was a rather wet weekend. In school today, we are looking forward to even more children joining us in our bubble. For those of you who are still at home, I want you to remember you are still an important part of our class. Keep sending us messages and pictures to the class email email@example.com the children in school love us sharing these with them.
Phonics / GPS
In phonics this week we are going to be looking at the sound /j/. The sound j can be made by the spellings ‘j’, ‘g’, ‘ge’ and ‘dge’
In your blue books can you make four lists of words like we do in our phonics lessons at school one list for each new spelling of /j/.
I have added a list of example words for this week into the files. The words are just a selection that are correct and not a definitive list.
With even more children coming back to school it is really important we can all stay safe and happy. I have uploaded a PowerPoint into the files section of the class page of the school website. I would like you to take your time to read through this. Are there any things you are doing at home to keep you safe that we are also doing in school?
Once you have read through the PowerPoint can you write a list of rules you are following at home to keep you safe a bit like the ones we have to follow at school. This list may include the rules you have to follow when you go out to the shops.
Our Collective Worship value for today is Aspire.
I would like you to watch this video of Derek Redmond.
In the bible it says “We have all these great people around us as examples. Their lives tell us what faith means. So, we, too, should run the race that is before us and never quit.”
Despite everything Derek Redmond overcome his challenged and aspired to finish his race. I would like you to draw a picture of something you have found a challenged over the past few weeks. Once you have finished your picture think about ways to help you overcome this challenge and write them all around the picture. Find somewhere safe to keep your piece of paper. Every time you face this challenge over the next few weeks I want you to get the piece of paper and remind yourself that you CAN overcome the challenge you are facing.
Can you go out and play hopscotch. If you have some chalk you can draw your own hopscotch pattern onto the floor. If you don’t you can still play hopscotch alternating between hoping and landing on both feet.
The video for the maths today can be found https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ Under “Summer Term - Week 7 - Lesson 1 - Count in 2s”. Enjoy watching the video, if at any point you do not understand feel free to watch the video again or pause it to ask your grown-ups for help. Then use your blue book to record the answers to the questions in the activity section. The activity sheet and answers can be found in the files section of the class page on the school website.
For the rest of the term, I am also going to add a file containing weekly maths challenges to the files section of the school website. If you have finished the math job for that day and want a little extra challenge please take a look at these.
It’s difficult not being able to see your friends lots of you are still at home and lots of you are now also in school. This lunchtime can you send a little message to your friends in school? This may be an email or you could even ask your grown-ups if they can record a little message you could send over email.
Today in school we are focusing on the book The Colour Monster – click on the book to watch an online version.
We have decided we want a colour monster display in the classroom. As part of this display we need to make lots of emotion bottles like the ones in the story. We will be making these in class this afternoon. Can you make an emotion bottle and send a picture of it to us – feel free to make more than one bottle.
In class we love reading stories by Julia Donaldson, we love guessing the rhymes and joining in with the repeated phrases. One of her books we haven’t shared in class this year is The Highway Rat so I thought this would be perfect for the story today.
