I hope you had a peaceful weekend and are keeping well. Please leave a comment if you haven't already, so I know who has access to this. It will be helpful when planning future posts.
Thank you to all the children who have completed work so far, and to the adults for helping them. I imagine it is getting trickier to encourage school routines as the weeks go by. With that in mind, I will continue to post activities but there is no pressure to do it. As per previous posts, it is suggested work only. Activities can be done daily, every few days, or over the course of a few weeks. Please do it at a pace that suits the child's ability. Remember that a blank page can often replace the need for a printer.
I came across the below poem recently. Seems like a hopeful poem for all ages, and a nice one to read to your children.
**** I intend to post a video of me saying hi to students over the coming week (If my internet connection permits me!).
Science and Procedural Writing:
How To Grow a Sunflower
We have practised procedural writing during the school year, so I would like you to try it on the attached writing frames (or on a blank page). After watching the video, say what you can remember to an adult. This will help to improve your oral language.
1. Correct Number Formation
2. Counting by Twos
3. Counting forwards/backwards
Check out the videos below that you like to sing-along to in class. Also included is counting to 100- Room.8 enjoy a challenge. They have really improved on their counting skills this term. Well done!
Keep up counting by twos and counting forwards/backwards between 0-20. When you know that, try higher numbers.
Practise counting forwards/backwards from different numbers, e.g. count on from 6-12, 3-16, 9-20, count back from 18-4, 15-2, 11-1.
