Are you ready for another day of fun learning? Parents please remember that all activities and tasks that have been posted on this page over the forthcoming lockdown will need to be practiced more than once.
Active Learn Primary: Here you will find Maths resources and reading books. Some parents have had difficulty logging on, so here's a recap.
Type into your search bar www.activelearnprimary.co.uk
Type your child's username (contact us if you need it again)
School code: lm7h
You will need a bowl/pot and a spoon
Letters of any kind e.g. magnetic, wooden, letter tiles, paper. (you may find single letters in pre brought games such as scrabble)
Game 1: For this game you need to put your letters in the bowl/pot. Stir them around with the spoon. Say the rhyme on the image. Ask your child to say the sound of the letter or model it for them.
Please introduce the letters in the following sets.
Set 1: s, a, t, p
Set 2: i, n, m, d
Set 3: g, o, c, k
Set 4: ck, e, u, r
Set 5: h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss
Game 2: You will need to write the letters that are in your bowl on a piece of paper that is large enough for your child to match to. Once your child has chosen a letter from the bowl, can you match it to a letters on the page?
Game 3: As soon as each set of letters is introduced, children will be encouraged to use their knowledge of the letter sounds to blend and sound out words. For example, they will learn to blend the sounds s-a-t to make the word sat. They will also start learning to segment words. For example, they might be asked to find the letter sounds that make the word tap from a small selection of letters. Here is the first set of words that your child can make from these sounds: s, a, t, p at, a, sat, pat, tap, sap, as. You can simplify this activity by matching the letters to the words.
Please log into www.activelearnprimary.co.uk and choose a book to share together. Parents notes are at the start of every book.
Below I've added a YouTube clip of a similar scheme to what we use in class. It focuses on the large movements(gross motor) that will then in turn help to develop the fine motor movements. Watch the clip attached.. she explains much better then me. I hope you enjoy!
The activities below are progressive. Please look through and pick an activity that suits your child.
Game 1: The first is an action counting song. Please sing along with your child. Once you have sang the song make a collection of objects e.g 5 toys, 5 bricks, 5 cups etc and count them with your child. For my new ones you will need to model counting for them. Point to the object as you count.
As a reminder our topic is science lead through stories. We have started with 'The Three Little Pigs'. I would like you to recap and build on last weeks activity. Like last weeks challenge, ask your child to find 5 objects from around the home. This time I want you to say what they need to find( choose objects that they can find easily) Can they then bring it too you and say what it is and what it is made from? You can simplify this challenge by using objects that is made of the same material. For the younger children. Use a feely bag (pillow case will do) and add 5 objects that are different from week. This time you may want to use wooden objects e.g. wooden spoon, wooden brick, wooden coaster, stick.
