Monday 11th January

Here is today's home learning.

Reading- While learning from home, you should be aiming for at least 20 minutes reading per day. This can be any type of text – fiction book, non-fiction, comic, newspaper, etc.

Phonics- Practise saying the Phase 2 and 3 letter sounds. Some flashcards to use have been attached to this blog for both phases. Here’s a video to watch if you are unsure how to say the sounds:

Today we are learning about the ‘oy’ sound in words like toy, royal and enjoy. Below are some videos to watch going through some ‘oy’ sound words.

oy - Phonics - boy, toy, oyster - YouTube

Geraldine the Giraffe learns /oy/ - YouTube

Can you find any things in your house with an ‘oy’ sound in? Talk about the ‘oy’ sound.  Can you say the sound?  Can you write the sound? Can you write some words with these sounds in? Can your child read words with the ‘oy’ sound in. There are some flashcards attached to this blog. Pick one of the 'oy' words and write a sentence with it in.

Maths- Today we will be learning to add by making 10. Watch the White Rose Maths video: Try making 10 like in the video you have just watched. You can make your own ten frames at home using a piece of paper or you could use the ten frames attached to this blog. You could use buttons, pasta or coins as your counters.


English- This week we will be using the story of Bob, the bubble who wanted to be useful. A version of the story has been attached to this blog for you to read or listen to. You can listen to an audio recording of this story here:

Once you have listened to the story, talk about your favourite part of the story and think about what happened in each part of it. Can you talk through the story and sequence it? What happened first? What happened next? What happened then? What happened after that?

Can you retell the story to a member of your family? You could make puppets of each character and use them to help you (some puppet templates have been attached to this blog). You could write a sentence about each part of the story.

RE- This week we are thinking about what Jesus teaches Christians about forgiveness. Attached to this blog is some information that we would cover in class. Start by thinking about: Why do people say sorry? Is it an important word?  What does the word forgiveness mean?

Think about the story of Matthew the tax collector, which we heard about last week. Why do you think Jesus wanted his people to forgive each other? How might the world be a better place if people forgave each other?
