Week beginning 4.5.20


Read to your child. Pick a book they like. This is just for fun and is something all the children enjoy at school. 

If you don't feel like reading your own books then listen to an audible book together. https://stories.audible.com/start-listen

or sign up for Oxford Owl eBooks which is completely free and contains hundreds of your child's favourite books.


This time it's time for your child to read to you. You were emailed the "set" they should use over Easter. Pick any book and encourage them to read for 10 minutes. If they are stuck on a word, get them to sound each letter out and then blend. Don't make them guess.



If you are struggling with this, then using Teach Your Monster to Read is fine.

Play on Sumdog for 15 minutes. It can be a reading, spelling or maths game. They are all great practice. The children have also told me that they like looking at who else is on and trying to beat them.
I'd like the children to draw a picture of some of the animals they can see from their windows. Under the picture can they write a sentence to describe it. e.g. A scrawny, red fox.

We started on "Summer Term - Week 1". Carry on from where you left off.


The lesson is on a worksheet. Rather than print it out just use the "add notes" button to write the answer straight onto the screen. Then mark the answers afterwards. 


We are all missing our outdoor learning in the woods. Can you build a den? In the garden or in your house. Send in photos of you doing your work in it and I'll put them on the blog.


Don't forget to play!

Playing is really important so get some time away from screens and work. Build a den, play hide and seek, make a daisy chain, construct the tallest tower you can. Have fun!
