I must say, a massive thank you to everyone that has sent in their activities from last week, we had some spectacular vlogs from Renzo, Paige, Arrabella and Boris - Well Done guys you did an amazing job teaching us new skills.
Here is a nice song to start the week off with
Monday
Literacy
All groups - 10 minutes - Practice spellings - click here to open introduce new words and discuss what they mean. Can they say the word in a sentence. Explore how word is spelt and identify a pattern if there is one and highlight it.
Encourage your child to think of a sentence with one of words in and then for them to write it down.
Gruffalos and Incredibles - should be writing longer sentences including some details and linking words for example 'and', 'because'.
'I would love some applesauce and roast potatoes with my Sunday lunch because they taste lovely.'
BillyGoats and Buzz Lightyears - write a simple sentence independently, for example
'The wind blew the nest down from the tree.'
'I put my dishes in the sink.'
Activity
Billy Goats and Buzz Light year - play the game 'Does it make sense'
Children to read a ‘mixed up’ sentence. Then make it correct by clicking and dragging words into the correct order.
PLENARY
At the end discuss the word ‘recycling’ and ask why it is important to recycle our rubbish. Ask your child to consider the danger to all sea life from waste products thrown into the sea
Literacy Homework
If you would like to extend the learning - Draw an underwater picture full of happy sea creatures with no rubbish to spoil their home.
Gruffalos and Incredibles - Play the game 'question mark'
Children to read the given sentences, identify question and add question mark appropriately.

All groups
Watch the story below ‘The Magic Pot’. Can you guess what we will be exploring in maths today?
Did you guess correctly? YES it is DOUBLING! Doubling is when you add together 2 groups of the same amount. Watch the clip below.
To learn more click on the image to open the PowerPoint below, then click on the 'slideshow' tab, then click 'Play from beginning slide' tab.
Work your way through each slide and solve the problem before the next click! Make sure you read the questions at the top of the slide.
PARENTS my favourite way to introduce doubles is using a mirror. Give your child a mirror and ask her or him to hold up one finger. Seeing the reflection of their finger in the mirror instantly demonstrates how to double one. Continue using this method of holding up fingers until they could double to five. We would then explore doubles by placing different objects in front of the mirror and counting them. Take a look at how to teach doubles with a mirror and a clip with fun ideas to help children understand what doubling. Practice both ways of writing a double number sentence: 1 + 1 = 2 / double 1 = 2

Today you are going to make a pairs doubling memory game to play with a brother, sister, mum or dad. Open the number cards below for your group and either print them out or make your own number cards.
Next lay all the cards out of order face down so you cannot see the number. Take it in turns to turn over just 2 cards on your go to find matching numbers, if you find a matching number you must say what the double number is to win the cards. Try to use mental recall to solve, but if you are not able to do this, use any counting strategies or doubling objects strategies to solve. HAVE FUN!

All groups to complete Big Maths Addition Sheet & Big Maths CLIC sheet. Click on images below to open.
Stars - The idea of the Big Maths Addition sheet is to develop mental calculations. Once you have been successful in completing these weekly sheets correctly, begin to try and complete all calculations in a set time. Start initially with 3 or 2 minutes and as your mental calculation skills improve reduce the time each week. The Final goal is to be able to complete these sheets within 30 seconds. The sums are written in different orders each week!
Hexagons - As stars except perhaps start off with completing in 5 or 4 minutes and slowly reduce the time over the next few weeks.
Diamonds & Hearts - use objects or number line to help solve additions with no time limit.
Please email us with how you are doing on the Big Maths Addition Sheet – see questions below for you to think about.
1. How are you solving the addition facts each week - with objects, number line or mental recall?
2. Are you timing yourself?
3. How long does it take to complete all sums?
4. How many are you getting correct in a specific time?
5. Do you feel you are getting better in your addition skills?
IT’S BEAT THE TEACHER DOUBLES CHALLENGE – ARE YOU READY?
