School Closure Activities!
Below are the suggested activities for this week's home learning. Please do not feel that you have got to do these activities, these are only suggestions to give you ideas of what you can do at home. Do what works best for you and your child and most of all have fun together! I will keep communicating with all of you on a daily basis through Class DoJo. Have a lovely week and stay safe.

Phonics Hunt - Look at what the sound of the day is and find as many objects around the house or in the garden with that sound in.
Monday - ay (may I play) Tuesday - ee (what can you see) Wednesday - igh (fly high)
Thursday - ow (blow the snow) Friday - oo (poo at the zoo)
I will also post a Phonics spellings video on Class Dojo for your child to do over the week.
Also all children were sent home with extra reading books to last them a few weeks, please still try and read at least 3 times a week with your child. If you have access to a printer there is also a reading comprehension that your child can do if they are finding the phonics task easy and want a challenge.
In school at Easter we always learn about the Easter Story. In Class 1 we then draw pictures about the important parts of the story and write sentences about our pictures. This is something you could still do at home. You may choose to draw only one part of the story and write a few sentences about it.
In Maths this week you could explore measuring liquids through water play. Children could compare how much liquid different containers hold. See which container holds the most and which container holds the least. Children could also fill containers up at different levels - full, nearly full, half full, nearly empty, empty. If you want to make it trickier you could also introduce children to measuring using ml but this will be new to them. I have also allocated a problem solving activity on Active Learn called 'Patchwork Blanket'. If you have access to a printer there is also a Easter Themed Maths Activity Booklet attached below.
