Any questions or queries, please email Miss Church – misschurch@lmp.org.uk

Everyday Tasks:

  • Use your phonics sound cards to keep practising your sounds daily, as well as your tricky word cards. Daily rehearsal of these is really important!So far children have learnt the following sounds:
    s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss
    j, v, w, x, y, z, zz, qu, ch, sh, th, ng, ai, ee, igh, oa, oo (long sound), oo (short sound), ar, or, ur, ow, oi
    For guidance on how to pronounce the sounds correctly, please refer to this Youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkXcabDUg7Q
  • Share a story together. You could make this extra exciting by building a reading den, or reading in different places around your house! Why don’t you try acting out your story? Or retelling the story in your own words?
  • Do something active! Do some star jumps, use your Wii or do some exercise in your garden!
  • Play a board game or do a jigsaw. Maybe you could make your own board game with a big brother or sister… or make a jigsaw by drawing a picture and cutting it up for someone else to solve!

  • Maths – Write numbers 0-10 on post-its or small pieces of paper and ask someone to hide them around your house for you to find! Each time you find a pair of post-its, add the two numbers together. Use objects to help you with your adding, or use the number line that is in your Home Learning Pack from school. To use the number line accurately, see guidance below:Suppose your addition sum is 2+3. Find something small like a button and place it on the first number in your sum (2 in this case). To add 3, move the button along 3 spaces. The button finishes on 5 so this is your answer!

Have a look at the picture below for further explanation, and use the dinosaur outline if you need some assistance!

  • Phonics – New digraph sound /ur/. The rhyme for this sound is ‘Ur – Nurse with a purse’. Remember a digraph is two letters together that make one sound. Write the digraph in your Home Learning Book in lots of different rainbow colours and have a go at sounding out some words that contain /ur/. Here are some to get you started… burn, curl, nurse, purse, turn, burp, slurp, hurt
  • Maths – Cut up some small pieces of paper (make sure you do the cutting and not your grown-up!). Label each piece of paper with numbers 1-10 and stick one number on each stair in your house, starting from the bottom. When you’ve stuck all 10, have you reached the top? If not, how many more do you need? Once you have numbered all your stairs see what games you can make up!
    Some ideas to get you started… What is 1 more than 5? (Stand on stair number 5 and go up 1 more). What way would you have to travel on your stairs to find out one less? What about working out addition sums on your stairs? E.g. 2+3 – Start on stair number 2 and climb 3 steps. What number do you end up on? Take it in turns with your grown-up or family to ask each other number questions! See what fun you can have! For an extra challenge, see if you can record any of your number fun in your book!
    (If you don’t have stairs in your house, try doing this activity on kitchen tiles, or paving slabs in the garden. You could even just do it along the floor if you really wanted to!)
    Stick your number cards in your Home Learning Book once you’ve finished with them, or save them for another day!

Monday 23rd March

  • We will be aiming to join fitness expert Joe Wicks at 9am for a PE lesson! These will be held every weekday, streaming live from https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ
  • Big Write – Ask your grown-up to write this at the top of your next clean page in your Home Learning Book: We have been talking lots about superheroes and how they help others. What do you do to help others?
    Write 1-3 simple sentences that answer this question. E.g. I help Mummy wash up. I can clean the car with Daddy. I change my sister’s nappy.
    Parents – Don’t worry if your child doesn’t spell all their words correctly. We would like the children to phonetically spell the words in their books, and accurately use the spellings of the tricky words they have learnt. Your child may spell the above sentences like this: I help Mumee wosh up. I can cleen the car wiv Dadee. I chainj my sisdrs napee. This is ok! Please feel free to email Miss Church with any queries about how best to support your child’s writing at home.
    Use your sound cards and your tricky word cards as a resource to help you sound out the words. Don’t forget to use finger spaces, a full stop and a capital letter at the start of each sentence. The lollipop stick in your Home Learning Pack can be used to make finger spaces between words! Draw a picture as well of you doing your helpful things!
    If you are able to take a photo of your work and email it to Miss Church, this would be fab!
