Monday 23rd March,
Morning Caterpillars. Please find your work for today below. Adults, please keep looking on the website today, especially our class page, as there will be lots of helpful links to help you with home learning.
The first I am posting, is the links to the virtual online phonics sessions. These will be live each day and will be a daily lesson for the children. It is really important that you try and keep daily phonics going as this will ensure they keep making progress with both their reading and writing. Below there is also link to e-books which have been made available for you and your children to access at home. Any queries on which books they should be reading, please do not hesitate to contact me over email.
Daily virtual lessons for children
From Monday 23rd March we’re scheduling Read Write Inc. Phonics lessons on Facebook and YouTube for children to watch at home.
We will release three short Speed Sound lessons with one of our trainers every day for the next two weeks. The films will only be available at the times below:
Please note: the films are streamed live and won’t be available at other times.
We’re also releasing a film of a poem for Reception and Year 1 children to join in with at 2.00 pm every day. The poems will be available on YouTube to watch again and again.
A great opportunity for children to learn these by heart!
Films for parents
Films for parents to help their child learn to read at home with Read Write Inc. Phonics are available on our website and YouTube channel. The YouTube channel will have a quick face-lift to help parents find the films easily. We’re adding a parent film to Facebook every day too.

English: (At the end of the week you able to retell the events in a variety of life cycles)
Watch this YouTube video to learn about each step in the life cycle of a frog. Make a list of key vocabulary they use.
Can you retell the events in order? Have a go at acting out each part, just like we do in Storytelling sessions.
Maths: Count on and back to 20. Make some mistake as you do and see if you child can notice. Which number did you miss? What comes next?
We are going to revisit addition. Remind children that when we add, we get more. The number will get bigger. Encourage children to use this language when talking about their Maths.
Using objects (this could be toys, pencils, pasta pieces etc) get the children to add small amounts to 10. If they manage this, take the addition sums up to 20.
Challenge: Give children an amount and ask how many more will we need to add to get to a certain number. For example, show them 3, how many more do I need to get to 6. Show me.
Topic: Pick a challenge from the home learning grid on the class page.
Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.
