Welcome to WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY!
Good Morning and welcome back to learning at school for the majority of us. For those who are working on their learning at home we have some learning tasks that you may complete that will be similar to what we do at school!
We are thinking of you all and we miss being in the classroom with you but we look forward to being back together again soon.
Please remember that during this time, your engagement in learning is wonderful to see but your wellbeing is our priority. Take your time completing the below learning tasks and do your best with the resources you have available at home. Don’t forget to share your learning via email or blog reply.
Let’s start our day with a song!
Sound of the Week
Let’s recap the sound of the week – ie.
Follow the video below and sound out each word that has the -ie digraph.
Please spend 5-10 minutes reading one of your levelled reader books if you have them with you. Otherwise, please enjoy the following audiobook below:
For literacy today, continue on the book you have been working on this week. Don’t forget all the things we talk about at school during bookmaking time – writing in full sentences, adding a title, author and picture on the front cover and adding words and drawings to each page in your book.
Switch off your devices and enjoy a break – have a good snack and chat with your family.
Let’s warm up our brains and sing along to this song about time!
We have been learning a lot about clock and time! Have a watch of the video below.
Have a think, what does a clock look like? Think about the following; the hands, the digits, what a minute is, what an hour is, etc.
Task – Creating a clock
Students make their own clock using coloured paper, paper plates and split pins. Students annotate their clocks (write minute on the large hand and hour on the small hand).
For play investigations today, you can choose what activity to do. It could be:
Creating out of lego/blocks
Making a shop
Working on a puzzle
Relaxing to a quiet drawing
Switch off your devices and enjoy a break – have a good lunch break and chat with your family.
This activity can be done in a large space with PE equipment hoops or anything similar.
Stand inside your hoop, then lift your hoop above your heads and gently bring it down to the ground. The area inside your hoop is your personal space and no-one may enter your personal space.
Hold your hoop carefully at waist height and walk around the room, without touching anything. This demonstrates respecting everyone’s personal space.
Questions to think about:
- How might someone know that there is someone else in their personal space? (Responses could include: uncomfortable feelings; feeling crowded; someone touching your body.)
- What might someone do if they felt a person was in their personal space? (Responses could include: ask the person to move away; please move away; tell someone in their network.)
Keeping active is one of the best ways we can take care of ourselves! If possible, you might like to go outside and play, visit the PE Blog for activities, or follow the yoga video below.
Enjoy the rest of your day at home and don’t forget to share any learning via email or the blog.
