1. Phonics and English

This week we are continuing to learn alternative spellings for sounds we already know, this is phase 5. We will revisit the spelling we know from phase 3 (e.g. ai as in rain) and then learn another way that sound can be represented (e.g. ay as in play).  There are phonics video for each day. The first video shows the Phonics Lesson and the second video shows the Handwriting Lesson.


Use the videos from the link to look at each sound https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvq9bdm

Lesson 1 –  This week is WORLD BOOK WEEK, today’s lesson is a special session with the author ‘Tom Fletcher’ from Mcfly who has written lots of books, I am sure you will know some of them when you see them! We want you to write or draw a book review of your favourite book.



Lesson 2 – Using the un- prefix. Adding un- to a word changes its meaning to ‘not’ or opposite. You may have noticed some un- words in our new story “Rory and the Dinosaurs”. Can you play a matching game to find their opposite pairs?





2. Maths


Lesson 1 - Number Bonds to 20. We will be recapping our knowledge of number bonds to 10 to support us with learning number bonds to 20. Can you colour the number bond rainbow and find a special place for it at home?



Lesson 2 - Comparing lengths. Today we are learning about measuring length. We are going to be comparing 2 or 3 objects to see which is longer and which is shorter. What items from around your home could you compare in length?



Lesson 3 -  Comparing heights. Today we will be using our knowledge of measuring length to support us with measuring height. We will be comparing up to 3 objects, ordering them and using maths vocabulary ‘shorter’ and ‘taller’.



Lesson 4 - Measuring in non-standard units. We will be measuring using non-standard units which means using items around the house to measure e.g. Lego blocks, pegs, pasta shapes. The item you are using to measure need to be the same.




3. Topic

1. Today we will be using a timeline to see just how long ago the Dinosaurs roamed the Earth. We will be adding other events to our timeline such as when we were born, when we started school and when Harry Paye was alive.



2. We will be exploring and looking at atlases, finding places on the, map to see where dinosaurs would have lived.

We will also be naming the continents and oceans and finding them on a map.

Here are the songs which help us to remember the names of the continents and oceans.
