Tuesday 5th January – Home Learning.
Dear Parents and Children,
Happy New Year to you all! I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas break. For the children who will not be coming into school, you will all be missed very much. The online lessons will run in a similar format to during the isolation period.
I have allocated our usual Phonics lesson to all of the children. Please log onto www.activelearnprimary.co.uk and enter your child’s login details. I realise that for most of you, your blue Reading Record book is in school with your child’s login details inside. If you do not have your login details written down at home, then please feel free to email me using the class email and I will give you the details you need.
Once you have reached your child’s homepage, you will see a little red circle next to ‘my stuff’. This indicates that there is a lesson waiting for you. Please click on ‘my stuff’ then click on the icon which says ‘Phonics’ and shows a picture of a green bug. You can then click to open the lesson. This week’s Phonics lesson will revisit the learning which took place before the Christmas break. This will enable the children to practise the most recent tricky words which have been learning before we move onto a new phase in Phonics next week. The lesson is split into two parts – Unit 12 language lesson 3 irregular, and language lesson 3.
Like the Phonics lessons we completed during the isolation period, you should navigate through the little blue tabs at the top of the screen. The words which the children should practise reading and writing today are: one, when, out, what. The captions which the children should have a go at writing are: Twist and turn, a soft quilt, a crisp frost.
All the children have an online reading book if you would like to do some online reading while you are logged onto the active learn website.
I have attached a writing frame for today’s English activity. The children should write their Christmas holiday news to ease them back into writing after the Christmas break. There are two differentiated versions of the writing template. Please feel free to use the one you feel is most appropriate for your child. I have also attached a phonics sound mat and tricky word mat to support the children with their writing.
This week’s lessons will focus on shape. To begin the lesson please open the PowerPoint entitled Maths Shape Presentation. Please go through the slides for lesson one. Next, please open the document entitled Tuesday Maths Worksheet. The children should complete pages 3 and 4 of the worksheet which show two stars at the top of the page. However, if you feel it more appropriate, you may opt for your child to complete the worksheets showing one star, or three stars as these are differentiated versions.
Many thanks for your support.
