Home learning week commencing 30/3/2020
Please remember, I know that this is a stressful time for everyone and that includes children so please do not worry if they are reluctant to join in and want to play with their toys instead- they are still learning! Also please don't feel overwhelmed by the resources available on here. I want you to have suggestions of things to do if you wish to, but they are by no means compulsory!
White rose have a selection of activities based around the book ‘We’re Going on an Egg Hunt’ By Martha Mumford. If you don’t have a copy of the book the activities can be completed without it or you can use the below link for a YouTube clip retelling the story. The maths resources are named White Rose Easter Maths.
Watch the tricky word song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvMyssfAUx0&t=2s
Can you write a sentence for each of the tricky red words; I of the my to no me
Ask a grown up to write down some of the set 2 sounds (if you don’t have the flashcards) and hide them round the house then go on a sound hunt.
Daily reading is important to continue to support all the phonics work they have learnt so far so please try and continue this maybe try reading in different rooms of the house!
I have also created some rainbow challenges that link into the different areas of the curriculum.
Lastly remember to have fun!
