Phonics- Today we are learning about the ‘aw’ in words like claw, lawn and straw. Below are some videos to watch going through some ‘aw’ sound words.

Mr Thorne ‘aw’

Geraldine The Giraffe ‘aw’

Talk about the ‘aw’ sound. Can you say the sound?  Can you write the sound? Now look at the ‘aw’ sheet attached to this blog. Can you read the words and say whether they are real or nonsense words?

Maths- Today we are continuing to learn about subtracting not crossing 10. Watch the White Rose Maths video: Spr1.3.4 - Subtraction counting back on Vimeo  and then try completing the worksheet attached to this blog.

English- Today’s English activity is a bit different. We are going to be thinking about instructions and recipes. Last term in school we wrote some instructions for making a sandwich and then we followed our instructions to see if they worked. Today we would like you to make something. You can either make a model of your choice or follow a recipe to make some food.

Making a model: Write a list of the things you need for your model. Get the things you need and make your model. Now explain to a member of your family what you did. Remember to include time connectives in your explanation (First I got a cereal box.  Then I taped another box to it). Did you remember to explain things in the right order? Would you change anything if you made it again?

Using a recipe: Attached to this blog is a recipe for butterfly cakes but you could use a recipe of your choice. Look at the recipe you have selected. It should have a ‘what you need’ section and a ‘what you do’ section. Can you spot the verbs (doing words) in the ‘what you do’ section? They could be words like put, mix, fill, pour.  Now measure out the ingredients that you need and follow the recipe instructions. Were the instructions easy to find? Did you find anything tricky to complete?  Would you change anything?

Don’t forget to email photographs of what you have made for us to see.
