Home Learning-  All Wagtails are to practise their letters and sounds/tricky words and read their reading books daily.

Good morning Wagtails! 

Wow another week of learning is nearly complete.

I am so proud of you all! :) I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, stay safe and smiling.

Usually on Friday’s we would celebrate our achievements in Achievement Assembly, this week why not ask a grown up at home to email me a reason you deserve to be mentioned for?

Here is the link to this week’s Quiz

Wagtails Quiz 10.7.20

Please only complete the Quiz if your child has been learning at home this week.

Friday 10th July- Maths

Please see the Box Game document attached- In this game, children will use their addition and subtraction skills to keep track of the number of toys hidden inside a box when toys are added in or taken out.

Friday 10th July - English- It is Friday so that means FREE WRITE FRIDAY! You can write whatever you want, however you want!

Phonics- Watch a Letters and Sounds for home and school video on YouTube.

Thursday 9th July – Maths

 Reception

Play the ‘Simple Take Away’ game on TopMarks together

(https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Flash.aspx?f=TakeAway)

N.B. There are several options for this game, we like ‘Work out the answer within 10’, played with ice creams.

Say the number sentence aloud, e.g. 9 – 4. As you click on ice creams to take them away, count backwards aloud together, e.g. “8, 7, 6, 5!”

Encourage chn to use different methods to work out the answers as you progress, e.g.

Fingers;

Number tracks/counters;

Whiteboards and pens – chn could draw their own ice creams and cross them off as you count backwards to find the answers.

 

Year 1- https://vimeo.com/434746564  problem solving . I have uploaded a corresponding worksheet and you could complete this problem too.

Thursday 9th July – English Please finish  your letter to Mrs Thomas. Think about adding a picture of yourself or pictures of things you like.

 

*Phonics- Watch a Letters and Sounds for home and school video on YouTube.

At school, it would be UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD (Welly Walking) this afternoon, but you can choose any of the other subjects to work on from the weekly task sheet.

Have a great day and check in again tomorrow. Please email me if you are unsure about anything or just to update me on what you have been doing, I would love to hear from you.
