/Good morning Primary 1.
Thank you for all your messages, pictures and emails – it’s lovely to see all the wonderful things happening in our class.
Here are some of the wonderful drawing from our reading task yesterday:
Here are your learning tasks for today:
This week we will continue to learn the sound ee but focus on the words using “ea”
This is a long sound and last week we learned about words using ee – can you remember any words with this sound?
This week we will focus on words using “ea”.
- Online – I have set up a phonics task for you on Active Learn (BugClub). This will allow you to learn the sound and practice making words.
- Independent tasks – All – In your jotter write 5 ea words and draw pictures
Blue/Yellow – Try writing some sentences independently using your words.
Green – Try writing a sentence with some support from an adult.
– remember you capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.
Extension tasks –
- How many rhyming words can you find for:
sea real teach
Online games –
- Print out these cards and match the pictures and words. If you are unable to print you could make your own.
- Use paper or stones to make your own ee/ea words – can you sort them into the correct group?
- Here are some activities that you could print off or copy into your jotter.
Numeracy: Counting forward and numbers more than.
We are going to start with a warm up song – it goes a bit higher than we usually go but give it a try.
- Starter activity: count and clap
- Get a beat going – knees, clap, knees, clap.
- When you have a steady beat going, begin counting forward – knees, clap (0), knees, clap (1) – How high can you count?
- Challenge – can you count backwards – start at 10, then try 20. Can you count back from 30 or more?
- Main activity: You will need a set of number digit cards. Your could use the template provided 0 – 50 cards or make your own from paper or stones.
Circles – Numbers to 30. If your child needs more challenge then try to 50 or 100.
Triangles – Numbers to 10. If your child needs more challenge then try to 20.
- Game 1 – Making a number line
- Mix the cards up and lay them out on the floor.
- Turn one card over – where do you think that number should on our number line? Put it in the space.
- Repeat until you have put all the numbers in order from the smallest to the largest – did you put them in the correct space?
- Mix them up and try again but time yourself – what was your fastest time? Can you beat your parent/carer/sibling?
- Game 2 – Numbers 1, 2 and 3 more.
- Look at the number line – what number is one more than 5? Encourage your child to locate and find on number line.
- What number is 2 or 3 more than 7? Find and locate it.
- Can your child do this without looking at the number line? Ask them to try and then let them check on the numberline.
- Challenge – Mix the cards up and lay them out face down. Take turns turning a number over – ask your child what is 1,2 or 3 more than *? Can they do this without the numberline support?
If your child is able focus on bridging 10s e.g. 3 more than 28, 2 more than 29.
- Here are some online games to help you practice counting one or two more:
As Fairyland is nearly fixed I would really like to go and visit it! Unfortunately we are not able to at this time so I thought it would be fun to pretend. Here is picture of me “visiting Fairyland”.
Your task today:
If you could visit Fairyland what would happen? What would you do?
What would you wear? Who would you go and see?
For today’s task I would like you to answer the questions above and show me/tell me about your trip to Fairyland. This could through a drawing a picture or a story or by dressing up and taking a photograph like me. Here is some more inspiration below:
Finally, I was sent this story and thought it was fantastic. I love the story and all the illustrations. It’s all about feeling worried especially with all the different things happening just now.
It is available on OxfordOwl but here is a link if you would like to read the book yourself:
Or if you would like someone to read it to you:
I hope that you enjoyed it as much as me! Have a lovely day.
Remember that tomorrow is Sports Day and Mrs Simpson has put lots of information on a separate blog post. I will still check in tomorrow to see how you are getting on. See you soon x
