Better Together

Friday 24th April 2020

Reception

Phonics/English

Practise your handwriting with pages 4 & 5 in your handwriting workbook.

Phonics: Thinking back to our new sound ‘ear’ that we learnt earlier this week, can you write these sentences which have the ‘ear’ sounds in?

Did the shark feel fear? 

Can a toad hear?  

Is the church near the park or the farmyard?

Maths

Subtraction from 10: Find 10 plastic (please don’t use glass!) cups or bottles lying around the house – or anything up that will stand up like skittles!

Roll a ball (or a pair of socks) at the cups and knock them down!

Write the number you knocked down as a number sentence from 10 (like in the the picture) and count the remaining cups to find out how many are left!

Super challenge: Can you do the same activity but starting at 20? 

PSHE

Making the right choice. There is often more than one choice we can make in a situation, today we are going to learn about good and ‘bad’ choices.

Watch this video to help show that we have more than one choice.

Have a go at the activity attached, sorting the events into good choices and bad choices. Can you explain to an adult why they might be good or bad choices?

A ‘feely bag’

You will also need something to act as a blindfold.

This activity is similar to the blindfold task we did when we were celebrating World Book Day.

Ask an adult to find six objects, such as a hairbrush, a tube of toothpaste, a packet of biscuits, an ice cream scoop, a packet of tissues and a wooden spoon. Imagine what it would be like if you could never see because you were blind and you had to learn to rely on your other senses instead. Play with a partner and see who guesses most of the objects.

 

Year 1

English

Pages 3, 4, 5 and 6 in your 10 minute English workbooks.

Play Hide and Seek in your bedroom!

Hide an object in your room and write a set of instructions for someone to find the object, be really clear with your language and think about prepositions too (under, above, over, on top of, below, on, in etc.).

See if your instructions were good enough for someone to follow them!

Swap over and ask your adults to hide something and write some instructions for you read and follow!

Maths

Equal Parts

Make your own Equal and Unequal parts table like this one to remind you that fractions should be equal!

Have a go at using your fractions knowledge to solve the reasoning problems below. Remember, you might need to explain your answers to really prove you know your stuff!
