Self-Isolation task 14.12.20

Week beginning 12.04.21

Welcome back! I hope you have all had a lovely Easter break!

Phonics: CVCC blending

English: Our focus story this week will be Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain by Verna Aardema. In this ten-session sequence, the children begin by locating Kenya on a map and learning a traditional Kenyan song. Then a bird appears with an instruction around his neck! This leads them discovering a book telling the story of Kapiti Plain where there is no rain... They meet the hero - Ki-pat - who shoots the arrow that is to burst the rain cloud. After creating a musical score to re-tell a section of the text, a letter arrives asking the children to help write a tourist information leaflet. Phonics teaching will be embedded throughout. 

Maths: To 20 and Beyond - We will be encouraging the children to build and identify numbers to 20 (and beyond) using a range of resources. Resources such as 10 frames, number shapes, towers of cubes, rekenreks and bead strings will support the children to see that larger numbers are composed of full 10s and part of the next 10. 

Topic: 'Growing' parts of a plant

Week beginning 15.03.21

Week beginning 09.11.20

Phonics: v   x   y   z    zz

English: This week our focus story is 'The Magic Paintbrush'. Through the story of The Magic Paintbrush, they meet Shen who loves to paint and draw. Shen is presented with a magic brush but she is to only use it for good. In the story, she overcomes a greedy emperor who sets his dragon upon Shen. The children create their own dragon-like monsters through playing mix and match monsters and record their ideas by drawing and labelling a diagram. They then write their own-version narrative by changing the items that their main character paints and including their own monster that the main character overcomes. 

Maths: This week the children will begin to understand that as we count, each number is one more than the number before. Similarly as we count back, each number is less than the previous number. We will be using a range of representations to support this understanding and encourage the children to represent the one more and one less patterns as they count. 

Please note that home learning will be given out on Thursdays and is to be returned on Mondays.

The children will be counting up to 3 objects in different arrangements by touching each object as they count and recognise that the final number they say names the quantity in a set. They will use their own mark making to represent 1, 2 and 3 for example to record their score during a game.
