Today in Maths we are going to be ordering numbers.

 

Work through the ‘train- ordering numbers’ powerpoint, and then work though the challenges on the ‘rabbit ordering numbers’ powerpoint.

 

 

Don’t forget to view the powerpoint in ‘full-screen’ mode to get the most out of the activity and navigation.

 

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Yesterday I asked you to think about your favourite memory of Reception…maybe today you could have a go at drawing a picture of your favourite memory and write a sentence to go with it.

 

Something extra...

Yesterday we asked you to talk to your family about what you enjoyed the most bout Reception… today we would like you to think and talk about the things you have learnt.

What has been your favourite lesson, story, PE session, phonics/Maths lesson etc?

Maybe you enjoyed Flip the Clown’s workshops, or the when the ducklings came to stay?

 

PE

This week we want you to choose a physical activity that gets you sweating and gets your heart pumping! You could choose dancing, star-jumps, running on the spot, racing your family etc! It would be great if you could record yourself doing 2 minutes of exercise and then send the video to your teacher- it would really make us smile!

  • Eggs
  • Rain clouds
  • Tadpoles
  • Lambs
  • Umbrellas

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Today we are still going to look at the book ‘Mrs Armitage on Wheels’ by Quentin Blake.

 

 

For today’s activity… we wonder if you could design your own bicycle!

It would be amazing if you could also label the extra parts that you have added on.

Your bike might have a mirror and hairbrush so that you can do your hair! Or, your bicycle might have a radio on it… so that you can listen to music!

 

Something extra...

We are SO sad to be losing you at the end of this year (especially with it being cut short) but we want you to think about and talk to your family about what you have enjoyed the most about Reception.

Maths

 

Today in Maths we are going to be learning about the concept of the ‘odd one out’!

 

The ‘odd one out’ means that there is something different about one of the numbers/items/pictures.

 

The odd one out can be related to numbers, number/quantity, colour, shape, size, purpose, features etc.

 

Have a look at the 'odd one out' powerpoint below and work out which ones are the odd ones out.

Discuss why you think it is the odd one out with your family.

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

 

Today it would be great for you to do some cooking with your parents.

Work with your Mum/Dad to gather and measure the ingredients. Then, follow the instructions that they give you for the preparation and cooking.

Maybe you could write an ingredients list or a recipe of the food that you have made together!

Your teachers would love to see photos of these activities… so feel free to send some pics in to our email address:

yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

 

Something extra...

Below is a powerpoint document with ‘odd one out challenges' on it.

Look at the pictures on each page and talk about which item you think is the odd one out and why. You and your family members may pick different things… and that is ok as long as you can explain why you think that!

 

PE

 

Today’s teamwork activity is to build a tower.

Work with your family members to build a tower as high as you can!

(Be careful that you don’t get hurt if the bricks are heavy.)

Maths

 

Today we are going to be learning about both 2D and 3D shapes.

 

Have a look at the 2D and 3D Riddle Cards below.

 

You don’t need to print this, as your grown up can read out the cards to you.

 

So… get a grown-up to read out the sentences on one of the cards and you have to guess what shape they are describing by listening and thinking about the properties.

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

 

Today we are going to explore textures.

The word ‘texture’ describes what something feels and looks like.

Have a look at the textures pdf file below at some examples of textures.

Maybe you can now go around your house and find things that are:

 

  • Hard
  • Soft
  • Smooth
  • Rough

 

 

PE

 

Today’s teamwork activity is out in the garden! (so hopefully we have some nice weather!)

For this activity you will need 2 buckets/big bowls (one filled with water and one empty), and a cup for each person.

Stand in a line (holding your cup) with the full bucket/bowl at one end… and the empty bucket/bowl at the other end.

You have to work as a team to move the water from the full bucket to the empty bucket – using your cups!

Try not to drop/spill any! 😉

Today in Maths we are going to be recapping our knowledge of 3D shapes!

 

Below are two powerpoints that I think you will enjoy!

 

*3D shapes powerpopint

*3D shapes quiz powerpoint

 

Remember to look at the powerpoints in ‘full screen’ mode.

 

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

For today’s activity, we would like you to write your own short story!

 

All stories have 3 parts to them

  • Beginning – introduction (talk about the place and people in the story)
  • Middle- problem (something that happens that causes drama)
  • End- solution (something happens/someone comes to help the situation)

 

Use the pictures below and your imagination to create some fabulous stories of your own!

 

If you struggle to write your story…. You could draw a story map and tell your story verbally.

 

 

 

Something extra...

Below is a brilliant ‘can you find the 3D shape’ powerpoint for you to do!

I hope you like it.

😊

 

 

PE

This week our PE activities have been around competition and discussing what this means.

Today’s PE activity is about team work.

Team work is when 2 or more people work together and help each other to do/make something.

 

I wonder if you could work as part of a team with your family!

For this activity you will need a balloon or soft large ball and a basket or bucket.

All stand in a line and the first person needs to have the balloon/ball held between their elbows or knees. They then have to pass the balloon/ball onto the next person- who then has to take the balloon/ball with their elbows or knees, turn around and give it to the next person. Continue until you get to the end of the line and drop the ball into a washing basket or bucket!

Yesterday I told you that we are looking at a new book from this week.

It's called 'Mrs Armitage on Wheels'.

 

I showed you the front cover and asked you to think and talk to your family about what you thought might happen in the story.

 

Here is a lovely version for you to look at and listen to:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fe9GVITbu9g

 

Were any of your thoughts and predictions correct?

 

Something extra...

Below is a great Pirate 2D shape-spotting challenge for you to do!

I hope you like it.

😊

 

 

PE

 

Create your own competitions again today with your family.

 

When you are doing your competitions, we want you to think about the winners and losers.

 

It is nice to win, but sometimes we do not win and that is ok… because the most important thing is taking part, having a go and doing your best!

And sometimes it is nice to let other people win if it makes them happy (which then makes you happy).

Maths

Today in Maths we are going to be learning about positional language, which is where we use words to describe where something is.

Positional language includes: behind, in-front, in, under, on, above, between and beside.

 

Have a look at the ‘where is Teddy’ powerpoint and learn about where he is.

 

For the next activity, you will need: your favourite toy and someone to do this activity with.

I want you to hide your toy somewhere in your house (check with a grown-up the rooms that you can and can't use). Then, your partner needs to ask you questions to find out where it is, which will help them to find it. Once your partner has found the item… it is their turn to hide the toy and you have to ask questions as to where it might be, and then go and find it.

 

Here are some examples of questions you might want to ask:

  • Is it in the (kitchen)?
  • Is it behind the (curtain)?
  • Is it under the (table)?
  • Is it on the (cupboard)?
  • Is it between the (fridge) and the (bin)?

 

 

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

 

This week we are starting a new book!

It is called ‘Mrs Armitage on Wheels’ by Quentin Blake.

 

I want to you look at the front cover of the book below and I want you to predict/guess what you think the book might be about!
Talk with your family about what you think will happen and why you think that.

 

 

Something extra...

There is a nice song you can sing about positional language (today’s Maths focus).

Have a look at the ‘put your bean bag on your head’ powerpoint and sing the words to the tune of ‘if you’re happy and you know it’.

Get a grown up to read the words to you, so you know what to sing.

Enjoy! 

:)

 

 

PE

 

Last week you timed yourself doing activities… this week we want you to race your family again, but we also want you know about the concept of ‘competition’.

 

A competition is where you do an activity alongside someone else/lot of people and it is a competition/race to see who can get to the line first, or who can do something for the longest amount of time, or who can throw something the furthest.

 

Can you make up your own competitions with your family?

Maths

 

Today we are learning about length again.

Have a look at the pdf document below and have a go at the challenges with a grown-up.

They are lots of fun and the activities that you have done this week will come in handy!

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Today we want you to write something called a ‘book review’.

A book review is where you write about the features of a book and what you liked about it. You could choose one of the Traditional Tales that have been listed on the website over the last few days OR, you could write a book review about your favourite story book.

 

See the pdf document below and if you can, print it and write sentences in the boxes.

 

If you can’t print it, then on a piece of paper write the following:

  • Title of the book:
  • Author of the book (if known):
  • Name of person doing the book review (your name):

 

Answer these questions:

  • What was the story about?
  • Who were the characters?
  • What did you like about the book?
  • Draw a picture from the book.

 

 

Your teacher would love to see and read your book review… so be sure to send a photo of your work to the Reception email address: yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

 

PE

Today would be a great day to go out for a walk!

Get out in the fresh air and enjoy looking at the environment!

Has anything changed since you last went out of the house?

 Open the powerpoint below and work through the day’s activities.

 

Maths

Yesterday we measured items with footprints and you looked at measuring objects with cubes.

In Maths we can use something called a ruler to measure the length of something. A ruler measures in centimetres (cm).

 

If you have a ruler (or a tape measure) at home, have a look at it.

Do you notice the little lines and the numbers?

Do you recognise the numbers and the pattern?

Yes… the ruler has a numberline written on it!

 

Here is a picture of me measuring a pencil.

Can you see how long it is?

That's right... it is 14 centimetres (cm) long.

 

Get a grown up to help you to measure the length of objects in your house in centimetres (cm).

Don’t forget to make sure that your object starts on the zero (0) and not the end of the ruler!

 

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Again…think about which one is your favourite and why. Discuss your thoughts with your family!

PE

Today, see how long you can run on the spot for before stopping! Get a grown-up to time you on a stopwatch app.

Can you beat them?

Maths

Remember those footprints you made from yesterday?

Maybe today as a fun activity, you could use the footprints to see how many footprints long your sofa is? Or how many footprints long a room in your house is!

 

If we were at school I would show you how we could measure the length of our footprint using cubes.

 

How many cubes long is Miss Bradbury’s footprint?

 

Yes, that’s right Miss Bradbury’s footprint is 8 cubes long.

 

Have a look at the Powerpoint below and work through the measuring length challenges!

This week your adjacent consonants are – lk, lf, pt, and xt. There will be different activities to complete each day.

 Open the powerpoint below and work through the day’s activities.

 

Maths

Today in Maths we are going to be learning about length. Length is how long or short something is.

 

Get a piece of paper and draw around your feet. Once you have drawn around them, cut them out. Then take one of the footprints and lay it down next to other items within your house and see which items are longer, or shorter OR are equal/the same. (Keep the footprints as you will need them tomorrow!)

 

Think about and discuss these questions with your grown up:

  • Can you find something that is longer than your foot print?
  • How can you be sure that it is longer? How can you check?
  • Can you find something that is shorter?
  • Are you sure it is shorter? Can you show me?

 

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Today I would like you to write about what you do well.

For example: I am good at PE. I like to run in the hall. I can kick a football.

(Remember that each sentence needs to start with a capital letter and end with a full stop!)

 

Something extra...

Have a look at the steps below of how to draw a ladybird. See if you can copy the steps and create your own ladybird picture!

 

 

PE

Today I want you to see what your fastest time is when you walk from one end of your garden to the other whilst balancing something small on a wooden spoon!

Get a grown-up to time you on a stopwatch app.

What was your quickest time?

How many seconds?

Happy Monday!! Remember, Monday is tricky word day… let’s see how well you do with these new tricky words today. Open the powerpoint below and work through the day’s tricky word activities!!

 

Maths

This week in Maths we are going to be learning about height and length.

Today we are going to be exploring the height of objects.

If we measure the height of something then we are seeing how tall or how short something is.

 

Stand next to a grown-up in your house. Your grown-up is tall and you are short. Your grown up is taller and you are shorter.

 

Now I want you to find your favourite toy.

 

Then, think about and discuss these questions with your grown up:

  • Can you find a toy that is taller?
  • How can you be sure that it is taller? How can you check?
  • Can you find a toy that is shorter?
  • Are you sure it is shorter? Can you show me?
  • Can you think of something that is taller/shorter than you?

 

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Today’s activities are correcting the teacher’s mistakes!

Work through ‘challenges 1’ sheet and add the capital letter and full stop that your teacher has forgotten for each sentence!

Once you have done challenges 1, move onto ‘challenges 2’ (which are a little bit harder).

 

Something extra...

Shared drawing.

Have a look at the steps below of how to draw a dinosaur. See if you can copy the steps and create your own dinosaur picture!

 

 

PE

This week we are doing balancing games again… but this time I want you to try and race yourself by getting a ‘personal best’.

Can you walk from one end of your garden to the other balancing something on your head?

See how long it takes you/how many seconds (get someone to time it on a stopwatch app on a phone/tablet) try it a few times and see what your fastest time was!

This week your adjacent consonants are – mp, ft, nk, and sk. There will be different activities to complete each day.

 Open the powerpoint below and work through the day’s activities.

 

Maths

Today we are going to be problem solving with capacity.

 

You will need 3 different sized (width and height) bottles part filled with water (coloured- if you want to be fancy!).

We now want to put the bottles in order from the most liquid to the least liquid.

 

But…we have a problem!... we don’t know how much is in each bottle so we cannot order them. How can we solve this problem?

 

Maybe it would be a good idea to measure each bottle of liquid by pouring the contents one by one into a measuring jug and reading the amount of millilitres (mls).

Perhaps you or a grown up can record the capacity of each bottle on a piece of paper and then you can order and discuss (with a grown up) your findings e.g. most / least water.

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

This week we have been discussing our Dad’s and important family members in our lives.

Sunday is going to be father’s Day… so maybe today you could write a father’s day message to your dad (or another family member) telling that person why you love them.
If you want to take a photo and email your Father’s/special person’s day message in for us to see then send it to yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

 

Something extra...

There’s a nice little Mr Gumpy Word Search below which you can either do electronically on the document by using the edit function…. Or print and highlight words that you spot with a coloured pen/crayon.

 

PE

Today you will need a soft ball for kicking. Make sure you are outside for this activity as we don’t want you to break anything indoors!

 

With a family member… see if you can kick the ball to each other, aiming the ball at that person.

Remember to use the inside of your foot when kicking the ball.

Try using your other foot and see which one feels easier!

Phonics

This week your adjacent consonants are – mp, ft, nk, and sk. There will be different activities to complete each day.

 Open the powerpoint below and work through the day’s activities.

 

Maths

On Monday we discussed how capacity is measured in millilitres (ml) and a grown up showed you the measuring lines on a jug or protein shaker.

 

Today maybe you and a grown up can fill that container with some water and read how many millilitres (ml) it has in it!

Keep repeating this activity to explore different numbers.

If you wanted to make this activity really fancy… you could colour the water with food colouring or paint!

 

As a follow up activity…. There is a millilitres challenge PowerPoint below for further learning and challenge!

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

We are still looking at the book ‘Mr Gumpy’s Outing’

My Gumpy had a boat that tipped over and all of the animals and people fell into the water....well... today’s activity involves making your own boat and estimating how many objects will make it tip over.

You will need a plastic tub/something to use as a boat in a sink/bath and objects to put in the boat to see how many you would need to make it tip/sink.

 

Before you start putting objects into the boat maybe you could predict how many of those objects you think it will take to sink the boat.

Put your predictions to the test by making a note of the guess and then a note of the actual amount (if known) of objects needed to sink the boat.

Here is an example below!

 

 

 

Something extra...

There’s a nice little dot to dot (numbers 1-27) which you can either do electronically on the document by using the edit function…. Or print and draw the line with a pen/pencil. Maybe you could write a sentence about this picture!

 

 

PE

For today’s aiming activity you will need a ball and objects that can be used as skittles such as plastic bottles (filled with a small amount of liquid) or tall thin objects that could be knocked down with a ball.

Space the objects/bottles out in a group. Stand a few metres back and then throw the ball, aiming at the objects and see how many you can knock down. Go and collect the ball and have another go until you knock all of the objects down.

 

This is a fantastic challenge to do with your family! You could turn it into a competition!

In our capacity challenges today, we are going to be using our vocabulary:

full

part full

empty

most full and

least full.

 

Work through the Magic Potions Powerpoint below to develop your understanding of capacity. You might need a grown up to read the slides for you and then you can choose your answer on the screen.

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mi_DV_DWN8M

 

My Gumpy had a boat…and the boat tipped and all of the characters fell into the water.

 

I want you to experiment with what makes a good boat!

In a sink or bath filled with water it would be great if you could look for household items and see if they float (and would make a good boat) or if they would not make a good boat because they sink!

You could try an egg box, a flannel/piece of material, a crock cup, a cardboard box – such as a cereal box etc, a cup shape made out of tin foil etc.

 

What materials/objects were best for making a boat?

Why do you think that was?

 

Something extra...

Today it would be nice if you could think about and discuss with your family why our parents are important to us and how we can let them know that we appreciate them.

 

PE

Draw a target on an outside wall or on a piece of paper and attach it to the wall. Practice aiming at the target and throw objects at it. You could use wet sponges, pairs of socks, flick elastic bands/hairbands.

The target could have different points in different rings and you and your family members could all play against each other!

Yesterday we learnt about the language for describing capacity (an amount of liquid): full, part full and empty.

 

Can you remember which words we would use to describe each of these?

 

 

I would now like you to work through the Monster Milkshake PowerPoint below and discuss the slides. Don’t forget to use your new capacity language: full, part full and empty. There is also other capacity vocabulary that is good for you to explore and know about: nearly full, nearly empty and ‘most full’ and ‘least full’.

Something extra...

Talk with your family about other members of your family such as Uncles, Aunties, Grandmothers and Grandfathers, cousins etc and their relation to you.

 

PE

This week we are going to be aiming at targets!

For this activity you can use a cardboard box and scrunched up balls of paper or rolled up socks like yesterday.

You could even cut a hole to make it look like a mouth and decorate the box to make it look like a monster and you are aiming paper balls into his mouth!

Happy Monday!! Remember, Monday is tricky word day… let’s see how well you do with these new tricky words today. Open the powerpoint below and work through the day’s tricky word activities!!

 

Maths

This week we are going to be learning about and investigating capacity.

Capacity is the total amount of liquid that can be contained inside a container – we use this word we use when we are measuring liquids.

Some containers hold more liquid and have more capacity… other containers hold less liquid and have less capacity.

We measure capacity using millilitres (ml). Ask a grown-up to show you measurements on containers such as measuring jugs or a protein shaker.

The words we use for capacity are: full, part full and empty.

 

Maybe you could get different containers and fill them with different amounts of liquid and then describe them as full, part full or empty depending on how much liquid is in them.

Can you remember the sign language for the animals?

 

 

Something extra...

Think and talk with your family about why your Dad is important to you. Maybe he goes to work to bring home money for you to have food and a home to live in? Maybe he tucks you up in bed at night time and reads you a story?

 

 

PE

This week we are going to be aiming at targets!

For this activity you can use A4 pieces of paper and pairs of socks (rolled into a ball).

Put the piece/pieces of paper on the floor in front of you. See if you can throw the socks and make them land on the paper. If you find this easy…. Try moving further away from the piece of paper making the challenge harder.

Maths

Today we are going to be working on number bonds to 20.

For these activities you will need 20 objects, a piece of paper and a pencil to write your number sentences.

Put your 20 objects in a pile in-front of you, then split it into 2 groups. Count the amounts that are in each group and write the number sentence e.g. 12+8=20.

Put the groups back together to make one pile again and then split it into 2 groups once more (at random) and write the number sentence e.g. 2+18=20.

Repeat this a few times.

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Yesterday we looked at shadows….. today we are looking at reflections.

A reflection is where you can see yourself when you look into it. For example…. A mirror will show your reflection as when you look into it… you can see your face!

We can also see reflections on the surface of still water like puddles and ponds, they reflect the sky and what is above them. Reflections can also be found in shiny objects such as spoons and sometimes in glass.

 

Maybe you can go around your house and find things that you can see your reflection in!
What happens when you look at yourself in both sides of a big spoon?

 

Something extra...

As we have been learning and exploring reflections….. maybe you can get a mirror, look at your face, and then draw your face on a piece of paper.

If you would like to send us a picture of your self-portrait- we would love to see it!

You can email the picture in to yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

 

PE

This week we have been balancing objects on our head.

Maybe today you can experiment with balancing an item on other parts of your body such as on your shoulder or the top of your foot!

Maths

Today we are going to be learning about ‘one more’ and ‘one less’.

You will need 20 objects and your 1-20 number cards from yesterday.

 

Pick one of the number cards and then match that number with the correct amount of objects. Take 1 object away to make ‘one less’ and say the number that is one less (you can count the objects once you have taken one away to make sure!).

Put the 20 objects back together again, and pick a new number. Make the quantity for that number again and once again take 1 away to find and say what is ‘one less’. Repeat this a few times.

 

Once you have done this I want you to move on to ‘one more’.

Put the objects together again and pick a number card. Find the number of objects that matches the number card and then add ‘one more’ to the group of objects. Count and say the number that is one more than the number card. Repeat ‘one more’ with other number cards.

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Hopefully we have some sunny weather today!

Have you ever played outside in the sun and noticed your shadow on the ground?

Maybe you could go outside and stand in the sun…. then look down at the floor to find your shadow.

Can you jump on your shadow?

 

Shadows are created by objects that block the rays from the sun or sources of light such as a torch or lamp.

Have a look at the document at the bottom for some examples of different shadows!

 

Something extra...

As we have been looking and discussing shadows today maybe you can put one of your favourite toys on the floor on the edge of a piece of paper. If it is nice and sunny you will see the clear shadow. Maybe you can draw around the shadow and see what shape it makes!
If it is not sunny then try this activity with a torch in a dark-ish room.

See the picture below for guidance.

 

 

 

PE

Balancing games again today. Yesterday you experimented with keeping an object on your head while moving around your house….. today maybe you can see how easy it is to keep it on your head while you are dancing and singing to your favourite song!

Maths

This week we will be recapping numbers 1-20 again. Although counting and numbers 1-20 fall into most weeks, it is important for us to recap from time to time, especially at this point in the year.

Today’s maths is about matching the quantity to the numeral!

You will need 20 small squares of paper and 20 objects (pasta or buttons are nice things to use).

I would like you to write numbers 1-20 on small square pieces of paper (keep them as you will need them tomorrow!). Shuffle the numbers and pick one number out. If the number is ‘5’ then you need to select 5 objects and put them by the number. You can then put the objects back into a pile, and pick another number at random and match it with the quantity of objects. Keep repeating until all of your number cards have ran out!

This week our book is called ‘Mr Gumpy’s Outing’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mi_DV_DWN8M

 

As we are currently reading ‘Mr Gumpy’s Outing’ … I would love it if you could write an apology letter to Mr Gumpy. You could pretend that you are one of the animals that got into boat and made it tip over.

Maybe you need to say sorry to Mr Gumpy for being silly and making the boat tip and making everyone ‘splash’ into the water.

Try and remember to start your letter with ‘Dear Mr Gumpy’ and end the letter with ‘From the (write the animal’s name)’.

Once you have written your apology letter it would be great for you to read the letter out loud to a grown up!

 

Something extra...

The last two days we have been learning about healthy and unhealthy foods, today I want you to think about and discuss the importance of exercise and what it does to our bodies.

Maybe you can run or jump on the spot really fast for 2 minutes. After the time is up….. think about how your body feels. Maybe you can feel your heart beating faster, or that you feel hot (sweating) and your breathing is heavy!

 

PE

Yesterday you explored how long you could balance an object on your head….

Today I would like you to see how long you can balance an item on your head while walking up and down the stairs.

If that it easy perhaps you could see how long you can keep it on your head while running!

In maths we use numicon to help us with our numbers.

Can you recognise all of them?

(See the 'can you recognise the numicon pieces' pdf below)

 

 

For this activity you will need a piece of paper and a pencil.

 

We can use 2 pieces of numicon to make a bigger number. Can you work through the numicon addition challenges on the document below?

You don’t need to print this…. you can look at the challenges on the screen and write your answers down on paper.

You could even write down the number sentences that go with each challenge!

Yesterday you listened to the story ‘Mr Gumpy’s Outing’ and drew a story map.

 

Today I would like you to change something about the story! Maybe Mr Gumpy had a tractor instead of a boat and at the end they all fell into a pile of manure?! Or maybe instead of Mr Gumpy…. your teacher could be the main character who has a boat!

Draw a new story map to show your ideas and changes to the story.

 

Something extra...

Yesterday you discussed healthy and unhealthy foods with your family.

Today it would be great if you could get a piece of paper, draw a line down the middle and draw healthy foods on one side and unhealthy foods on the other side.

For an extra bit of learning perhaps you can label the foods that you have drawn!

 

PE

Yesterday we balanced objects on our heads.

Today I want you to think about the objects that you put on your head and which ones you found easier to balance.

Why do you think they were easier to keep on your head?

Maybe today you can see how long you can keep an object balanced for!

You could also have a competition with your family members!

Monday 08.06.20

 

Phonics

Happy Monday!! Remember, Monday is tricky word day… let’s see how well you do with these new tricky words today. Open the powerpoint below and work through the day’s tricky word activities!!

 

Maths

This week we will be recapping numbers 1-20 again. Although counting and numbers 1-20 fall into most weeks, it is important for us to recap from time to time, especially at this point in the year.

With some help from a grown-up (if you need it) write a numberline from 1-20.

For the activity, use the numberline and with your finger count the numbers up to 20 and then backwards too (20,19,18,17,16 etc) saying the numbers as you touch them.

Get someone in your house to cover up one (or more) of the numbers (you could use a small piece of paper or a coin or button) and you have to work out which number(s) is/are missing.

Repeat this as many times as you’d like.

 

Throughout the day you could go on a number hunt around your house and see how many numbers 1-20 you can see in your home! This would be a brilliant activity to do with some of your family members.

 

 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

This week our book is called ‘Mr Gumpy’s Outing’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mi_DV_DWN8M

 

Here is a link with some Makaton sign language too

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQmOuL64D_E

 

Now that you have listened and read the story….. can you draw a story map of what happened?

Don’t forget to draw your story map from left to right.

 

 

Something extra...

This week we are learning about healthy eating!
With your family talk about the foods that are healthy and good for you such as vegetables, meat, fish. It is also important for you to know what foods are not good for you and that are unhealthy such as sweets, chocolate, burgers, chips etc.

Maybe you could look at the foods in your house and talk with your family about whether they are healthy or unhealthy foods. 

 

 

PE

This week in PE we are doing fun activities where we will balance something on our head whilst moving!

Have a look around your house for things to balance on your head such as a rolled-up pair of socks, a bag of rice, a toy, an empty cup etc.

See if you can balance it on your head. If this is easy…. try and walk with the object on your head and see if it is easier or harder than standing still.

Happy Friday!! This is your last day with these adjacent consonants – str, st, sp, nch. There will be different activities to complete each day.

 Open the powerpoint below and work through the day’s activities.

 

Maths

This week we will be recapping numbers 1-20. Although counting and numbers 1-20 fall into most weeks, it is important for us to recap from time to time, especially at this point in the year.

Today we’re going to play fastest finger first. Here’s a table with numbers 1-20 in. You say a number and your child has to find it as quickly as possible. If you don’t have a printer, you can just draw it.

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult Focus

This week we would like you to play some pair games.

Here’s another game for you to play… Who am I?

Write a character your child will know (e.g. Mickey Mouse), on a piece of paper and stick it to their forward. Your child has to ask questions to try and guess their character.

 

Something extra...

 Here’s a video of Miss Bradbury singing a lovely, positive song to cheer you all up. The song is S Club 7 – Reach for the Stars.

Maybe you could learn it too.

 

PE

This term we would’ve been gearing up for Sport’s Day. Each week we will put up a sports day race for you to practise and take part in.

This week is: Egg and Spoon Race.

Hard boil some eggs, and when they’ve cooled can you balance the egg on the spoon as you walk up and down the garden, or up and down the kitchen?

Maths

This week we will be recapping numbers 1-20. Although counting and numbers 1-20 fall into most weeks, it is important for us to recap from time to time, especially at this point in the year.

I’ve attached a snakes and ladders board, if you have a printer, print it off and play together. If you have the game at home already you could get that out. Or, you could draw it together and then play. Have fun!

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult Focus

Could you go for a walk today? Take a piece of paper and a crayon. On your walk could you lay your paper on a tree and rub over it with the crayon… this creates a bark rubbing picture. You could even collect some leaves, and when you get home lay them underneath the picture and rub onto the paper to create leaf rubbings.

 

 

Something extra...

This week we would like you to play some pair games.

Here’s another game for you to play… Simon Says.

If you don’t know how to play… You say ‘’Simon says tap your nose’’ so the child taps their nose. You say ‘’Simon says touch the ground’’ so the child touches the ground. ‘’Pat your head’’… your child would be ‘out’ because you didn’t say Simon Says. Then swap round. The quicker you say it, the harder it is.

Today could write out a number line on a piece of paper. And cover some of the numbers. Ask your child what is 1 more than 5 (the number should be covered), and see if they know the answer. Change the numbers that you cover and continue to ask what is one more or one less.  

There are some missing number sheets attached if you’d like to use these.

Happy Monday everyone, and welcome back from the half term break. We hope you had a lovely week off from home learning.

Now we’re back, we will be continuing to put up Phonics, Maths, Activities and PE for you to follow each day that would fall in line with what we should have been teaching during this time at school.

Hi everyone,

 

We hope you're all okay and keeping safe. 

 

Over the half term break your teachers will be taking some time off, so there won't be any home learning being uploaded to the website.

 

If you really want to continue with home learning, please scroll back through and complete any activities you haven't already, that have been uploaded to this page. Remember the Phonics is probably the most important as it supports reading and writing. 

 

If you would like to take part in our half term challenge, here is our holiday bingo sheet. See if you can tick off every single activity. I've uploaded it as a document too, incase you want to print it off and stick it to your fridge. 

 

 

Have a lovely half term, and we'll be back online from the 1st June.

 

Stay safe and take care,

 

Miss Lee, Miss Bradbury, Mr Pendry & Mrs Uredi

Happy Friday!! As it’s VE day (Victory in Europe Day) today AND a bank holiday, this is the focus of your activities for today. There is a powerpoint attached below for you to learn all about what happened on VE day and why we celebrate it in Britain. I’ve also attached some activity sheets if you have a printer… if you don’t however, you can definitely still join in the fun. Maybe you could make some bunting, or draw your own flags. You could even make your own medals.

 

Have a wonderful day, and enjoy your weekend!!

Today we are recapping sharing. There is a powerpoint below which explains how share objects equally. If you do not have access to these, could you gather some sweets / pieces of fruit / marbles? Give your child 10 and ask them to share them between you, and them maybe between you and their sibling.They must know that when we share, we divide the objects equally so everybody has the same and it is equal. If there are 3 of you, and 10 objects, then we cannot share 10 in three ways.

Today we are recapping doubling. There is a powerpoint below which explains how we double numbers using numicon pieces. If you do not have access to these, could you gather some socks that match? Give your child 1 and ask them to double it. They must know that when we double, we are adding the same quantity again to make a new quantity. E.g. 3 + 3 = 6

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

This week we would have had our caterpillars delivered. We would have spent the week learning about the caterpillar to butterfly lifecycle, as we observed the caterpillar change into a chrysalis and then a butterfly. Check out the powerpoint below that explains this lifecycle. Maybe you could search the internet for a time lapse video of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly.

 

Something extra...

Maybe you could draw the lifecycle? We would have made a collage at school using a paper plate split into 4 quarters, and asked the children to think of what materials would be best to create their egg (maybe a button), caterpillar (some wool or bunched tissue paper), the chrysalis (some shiny paper), and the butterfly (some sequins). If you have access to craft materials, have a go. There is also a cut and stick document below if you have a printer. Or you could draw it and colour it yourselves.

This week is recapping what we know about halving, doubling and sharing. 

Today we are recapping halving. There is a powerpoint below which explains how we halve shapes, and also a cutting activity if you have a printer. If you do not have access to these, could you gather some objects / sweets / socks / pegs and ask your child to halve different quantities... 10, 8, 6, 4, 2? They must know that to halve is to create 2 equal groups so it is fair. A half of a number is one of these equal groups. 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

I've attached the powerpoint for our story Goldilocks and the Three Bears again. Could you discuss the emotions of the characters in the story? How did the bears feel when they realised somebody had been in their house? How did baby bear feel when he found his chair broken? How did Goldilocks feel when she woke up to three bears standing over her? 

Discuss why the characters may have felt this way.

Key words - shocked, surprised, upset, angry, scared, frightened.  

 

Something extra...

Can you write an apology letter to the bears from Goldilocks to say sorry for what she did? Make you you start with To and finish the letter with From.

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

As it's Ramadan, and we know Eid is fast approaching, we would have spent some time looking at Mehndi Patterns. Below there is a powerpoint showing some different Mehndi patterns and some pictures of Miss Lee and Miss Bradbury with some Mehndi they've had before. Could you draw around your own hand, and create a Mehndi design? 

We'd love to see them, email them to yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

 

Something extra...

Can you create a mindmap of the different describing words (adjectives) you could use to describe the porridge, the chairs and the beds in Goldilocks and the Three Bears? For example, for the porridge - hot, cold, sweet, salty.

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Did you enjoy the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears? If you didn't watch it or read it yesterday, there is a powerpoint below. 

Today, you could have a teddy bears picnic. Lay out a blanket and invite your bears to join you for lunch. Could you write an invitation asking them to join you?

 

Something extra...

Could you map out the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears like we do at school? Draw a straight line across a plain piece of paper and the draw the pictures of the story in order. You could use this to retell the story to your families. 

Here's an example:

Phonics

It's tricky word day again. All you need is a piece of paper, a pen or pencil and the powerpoint link below and you're good to go. 

 

Maths

This week we will be focussing on money. Could you lay out a 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p and 20p coin and make sure your child can recognise them? Do they know how much each coin is worth? Can they tap it the amount of times they'd need to to show the worth? For example, tap a 5p five times. 

Play a game of fastest finger. Say a coin, and your child has to pick the correct coin up as quickly as they can.

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

This week we would have embedded our knowledge of the farm to write a caption for a writing assessment. Could you google pictures of farms or look at the Hatton website and write a caption? You could use the sentence starters:

I can see a...

It is a...

I like... 

Email them to yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk     We'd love to see them. 

 

Something extra...

Maths

Today you will becontinuing a repeating fruit pattern. You could even use real fruit in your house. Maybe you could also make some of your own patterns and send them to us at yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk.  

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Can you design your own farm? What kind of animals would you have? Would you have a tractor? What colour would it be? How big would the farm house be for the farmer? Would you have lots of fields for different animals?

 

Something extra...

There's another shared drawing video for you below to follow... I wonder which animal it is today?

The rest of the week will be about consolidating the adjacent consonants from Tuesday through reading and writing. See how you get on today... remember you do not need to print anything off, you can use paper and a pencil.  Remember you can email us if you have any questions. 

 

Maths

Did you enjoy the body percussion patterns? Today is all about number sequencing. Can you find the missing numbers in the document below? Counting in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s are all patterns. Maybe you could practise your counting today. 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

As this week would have been all about the farm, we would've made sure there was some sort of craft activity involved. Do you have a toilet roll insert? You can make a whole heap of animals using this, some paper, a glue stick and even some paint if you have some. See the picture below for some ideas...

 

Something extra...

Check out the cbeebies site for 'Down on the Farm'. There's heaps of farm related activities including guessing the animal by the sound and a jigsaw.

Maths

We're sure you did a great job working on the shape patterns. Today is all about body percussion patterns. . A body percussion pattern is where you may:

Clap your hands... stamp your feet... clap your hands... what comes next? Why do you think that?

Now try:

Tap your head... tap your nose... tap your head... what comes next? Why do you think that? 

Try creating some of your own. Maybe you could email us some videos to yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Find the document below titled 'farm labelling'. Can the children label the pictures? Don't worry if you do not have a printer... just write a list. We'd love to see some of your writing.

 

Something extra...

Do you have any plastic yoghurt pots? Maybe today you could try taking a cutting from a plant, or a seed from a fruit or vegetable and planting it. See what happens... 

Talk about what plants need to grow.

Tuesday 21.04.20

 

Phonics

So now you've probably worked out that Monday is our new tricky word day... so Tuesday is our new 'introduce' day. Today you will see something new - what we call adjacent consonants. These are not new sounds, you still say the sound separately... but when you hear them together it is tricky to segment to write. See how you get on today... remember you do not need to print anything off, you can use paper and a pencil.  

 

Maths

Did you enjoy the repeating colour patterns? Today, we are looking at shape patterns. Can you name all of the shapes? Again, you do not need to print off the document, you can draw the pattern or just discuss it together. 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

Have you been taking a walk each day? Or spending time in the garden? Can you look around you and find things that you think may have grown from a seed? You could maybe google seed growing plants, and bulb growing plants together. 

 

Something extra...

Our children LOVE shared drawing. Watch the video below to follow Miss Lee's instructions as she draws. You may need to pause it at points to catch up. Can you guess what it is before she gets to the end? Positional and shape language is a big part of our curriculum... maybe you could have a go with your child.

Phonics

Today would have been the first day of started Phase 4 Phonics... we would really like if the children could have some exposure to Phase 4, as it isn't any new sounds, it's more about blending and segmenting. Follow the powerpoint link below... the powerpoint will tell you what you need to do. 

 

Maths

This week we are focusing on patterns and sequencing. Can you complete a repeating colour pattern? Use the link below... if you do not have a printer don't worry, just carry on the pattern on a plain piece of paper or talk to your child about what they think comes next and why. 

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

We would have been taking our trip to Hatton Farm tomorrow. Unfortunately until we return to school we aren't sure when the trip will take place. Can you spend some time with your child looking at the Hatton farm website and discussing what kind of animals they may have seen? Maybe your child could write a list...

https://adventure.hattonworld.com/our-attractions/

 

Something extra...

Play guess the animal with your children... describe an animal and they have to guess, but also explain why they think it is that animal. Maybe they could describe an animal to you for you to guess.

Happy Weekend!!

 

Wow, these weeks are really flying. The Easter holidays are now over and we will be back to normal with our online learning on Monday. Every day, there will be a Phonics, Maths, child-initiated and an extra activity for you to complete. These will be related to what you would have done in school. You also need to be logging into Oxford Reading Buddy as often as you can. We do check!!

You may notice a change in the Phonics powerpoints... we're now moving into Phase 4 of Letters and Sounds. Parents, please don't worry, we will teach / recap this when the children do eventually come back to school but we would like them to have the exposure. The powerpoints tell you everything you need to do. If you don't have a printer, that's fine, a piece of paper and pencil will do the job.

 

Anyway, it's the weekend... which means another recipe!! This time it's a savoury one!! When I lived in New Zealand, morning tea was something to look forward to everyday and it normally included something home baked. These cheese scones are one of my faves!! 

 

 

 

Cheese Scones

  • 225g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 55g chilled butter, cut into cubes
  • 120g mature cheddar, grated
  • 90-100ml milk, plus 1 tbsp for glazing

 

1. Heat the oven to gas mark 6 / 200C / 180C fan.

2. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl. Then sift it again.

3. Add the butter to the bowl, and using your fingers, combine to make breadcrumbs. Don't over work the dough. You don't want the butter to melt. 

4. Add the mature cheddar and mix.

5. Make a well in the centre of the mixture with a knife.

6. Add the milk, a small amount at a time and mix with the knife (don't ask me why with a knife, this was just a tip I was given and have never moved away from). You need enough milk so your dough is fairly soft but still firm. 

7. Lightly dust your kitchen surface. Tip the dough out and flatten until approximately 2cm thick. Cut with a knife, you should get around 6 scones. Transfer them to a baking tray covered in baking paper.

8. Brush a little of the milk on top, and sprinkle with some grated cheese.

9. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden and cooked through. 

 

**If the dough feels too warm, or the butter begins to melt at any stage, put the mixture into the fridge to cool. 

 

Have a great weekend,

 

Miss Lee :)

What have you been up to this week? 

Your teachers have been busy enjoying the second week of their Easter holidays... 

 

Miss Lee has reread some of her favourite books. 

Mrs Uredi has been enjoying the sunshine and her daily exercise, cycling with Luna.

Miss Bradbury made some turkish bread, aswell as homemade pizza and chocolate nests.

Mr Pendry has been reading to Max and Poppy.

Mrs Dhinsay has been enjoying some time in the garden with her children.

Mrs Chohan made a delicious looking strawberry cheesecake, and she spent some time exercising to make sure she had room for it. 

 Mrs Satnam has been junk modelling. Scroll along to find the monster she made out of cake boxes. And if you scroll down, there is a step by step video of Mrs Satnam showing you how to make sun catchers from old CD's. 

 

Miss Mahmood has been very busy again this week, answering the phones and updating the records at the medical centre. She is definitely one of our superheroes who are keeping the NHS running as smoothly as possible. Did you all clap for the NHS and carers at 8pm on Thursday? Next week, maybe you can send Miss Mahmood a big thankyou when you go outside to clap.

You will need:

 

A bucket or tray filled with water.

A spoon. 

An empty yoghurt pot.

A hair bobble.

A sponge. 

A stone or pebble.

A leaf.

A coin.

A toilet roll insert. 

 

First of all you need to do some estimating. Can you guess what will float or what will sink? Maybe you could write a list of the objects that you think will float or sink. 

 

Then you get to test it out. See how many of the objects you guessed correctly. 

 

Happy experimenting!

Tuesday 14.04.20

 

We normally practise our cutting skills at least once a week. Today, could you supervise your child to practise their cutting using some scissors? If you only have access to adult scissors that's fine, as long as the children are supervised. Encourage them to hold the paper with their non-cutting hand and control it by moving it around. They will automatically turn their cutting arm and stick their elbow in the air, we need to encourage them to keep their elbow down and scissors in a straight line pointing away from them.

 

If you do not have access to scissors, or would rather your child not use an adult pair... maybe they could practise cutting some fruit or vegetables instead?

 

There is an attachment of some easter eggs that can be cut out, with a variety of lines through the middle. If you do not have access to a printer, just draw a variety of lines - straight, curved, zig zag or wiggly on a piece of paper or a variety of shapes and ask your child to cut around them.

Happy Monday!!

 

We hope you all had a lovely weekend. Did any of you do an Easter egg hunt?

 

For today, why don't you have a go at a colour hunt? You can easily make the sheet you need with some felt tips or crayons. 

 

 

You could find the things around the house, during your daily walk or in your garden. You could pick them and lay them in the correct box, draw them, or take photos of them.

 

Have fun. 

Happy Weekend!!

 

We hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend with your families, staying safe and at home. 

 

I have another recipe for you... for any bananas you have that are over ripe. A quick tip... I always freeze any bananas that are over ripe, and take them out of the freezer a few hours before I make this cake. They will go black, but this doesn't matter. 

 

Banana Loaf

 

140g butter or margarine (I use margarine)

140g caster sugar

2 large eggs, beaten

140g self-raising flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 ripe bananas

 

1. Mix together the sugar and butter. 

2. Add the egg, a little at a time with a spoonful of flour to stop the mix from splitting. 

3. Fold in the flour and the baking powder.

4. Mash the bananas in a separate bowl. 

5. Add the mashed bananas to the mix and fold together Try not to knock out too much of the air. 

6. Pour into a loaf tin lined with greaseproof paper, or greased with butter. 

7. Bake in the oven at gas mark 4 / 180C / 160C fan. 

8. Bake for 40 minutes, before checking. I tend to bake it for around an hour but that may just be my oven :). 

9. Best served warm, with a cup of tea whilst sitting in the sunshine.

 

Happy baking... and enjoy your weekend. We will be back on Monday with some more fun Easter activities for you.

Today we would like you to design your own easter egg. For some inspiration, you could google 'Faberge eggs' and see the beautifully decorated eggs that are housed in some museums. Make them as colourful as you can.

 

There is a template attached below. 

 

You could email your sound maps to yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk for us to take a look.

Every day Miss Bradbury has been taking advantage of the one walk a day guidelines and getting some exercise in the fresh air. 

 

Today, could you take a walk in your local area... and we would like you to create a sound map. You will need a piece of paper or a notebook and a pen. Whenever you hear a noise on your walk write it down or draw a picture. See how many different sounds you can spot... it may be somebody closing their front door, a car, a bus, or a bird singing in the trees. 

 

You could email your sound maps to yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk for us to take a look

Miss Bradbury enjoys a walk...

Happy Easter!

 

For this week, there will be an Easter activity every day for you to complete. Today, follow the video of Miss Lee to make some chocolate nests. You will need: 

 

  • An easter egg or some bars of chocolate
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 50g butter
  • 70g cornflakes
  • Cupcakes cases 

 

Feel free to send some photos of your chocolate nests to yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk 

 

Happy baking :), don't eat them all at once!

 

Thank you!

 

A huge thank you to Eesa and his family for creating this beautiful card for the staff and children at St. Mary's hospital. 

 

We are so lucky to have such kind and caring children and families at Anglesey.

Happy Weekend

 

For your fun weekend activity, you could collect some flowers, leaves and grass on your daily walk. Take them home, and lay them out on a piece of paper to make a lovely picture. You could email us a picture of your creation to yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk. 

 

Here's Miss Lee's picture of a forest in the sunshine...

 

As it is now the Easter holidays, your teachers will be taking a break for a couple of weeks. So the amount of activities uploaded each day will decrease, however there will be an activity for you every day. You can still log on to oxford reading buddy, and complete Joe Wick's PE workout each morning. 

 

Over the next two weeks, it would be great if you could focus on improving those all important life skills such as dressing and undressing, toileting independently, doing up buttons and tying shoe laces, etc. 

 

We will still be accessing our emails so if you have any questions please send us a message.

 

Happy Easter!

Phonics

Friday is tricky word day. You will find the link below to the powerpoint we would have taught today. If you cannot access the powerpoint, have a look at the phase 2 and phase 3 tricky words. 

 

Maths

Can you set up a shop with 5 items, that are priced below 20p? Give your child a range of 1ps, 2ps, 5ps and 10ps. Can they buy two items from the shop and work out the correct amount of money that they need?

 

Child-Initiated Play / Adult focus

It's the end of the week... what have you enjoyed most in your home learning these last few weeks? Have a chat with your parents or siblings... or maybe send us an email and tell us what your favourite activity was. 

 

Something extra...

Today is all about making music (sorry Mums and Dads). Can you use some household items to create instruments? You could use pots and pans, spoons, a tissue box... I'm sure there are many things in your home. Use your imagination! Send us some videos to make us smile... some of our houses are a little quiet during lockdown.

 

PE

Joe Wicks will be asking children to get involved in his 9am PE lesson that you can find on his youtube page every day - https://www.youtube.com/thebodycoachtv
