Wednesday and Thursday

There are 4 video sessions of phonics and reading. Will you please space them out throughout the two days. It is important that the phonic is done in small bites and as many times as you can. If there is a sound your child is finding tricky then focus on that sound for the day. Hide it on a post it around the house. Play games and occasionally ask what's this sound. At school we would randomly ask children sounds when they were playing in the sand , waiting for dinner etc. By the end of this year we would hopefully have all children knowing all the inital sounds and the special friends. For those children who are finding the sounds easily we would expect them to be able to use their phonic knowledge to write sentences with words with special friends and red words.

Tuesday 31 March- phonic and reading

Put numbers from 0 to 20 in order and, starting with 20, count backwards along your number line to 0. Make sure you say each number and are careful to not miss any numbers out. Can you count backwards from 20 to 0 without using your number line? Watch the YouTube video to help you.

Can you add amounts together?

Watch the video of Mrs Westwood adding amounts together using objects. Have a go at adding amounts together using anything in your home. When we are adding do our numbers get bigger or smaller? Can you practice saying the word ‘addition’?

It is really important that the children use maths in their everyday lives. They could add some groups of toys together on their bed when they make it in the morning. They could start with 7 peas on their plate and then mummy adds 4 more. Find different ways of bringing addition into your everyday life.

Challenge: Once you have used objects to add groups together see if you can estimate how many there are. Someone in your house could make a pile of toys and you have to say how many you think there are without counting them. Practice your reasoning skills by saying why you think there are that many.
