There are different choices that you can make this week...
- work through the 'Three Billy Goat's Gruff' tasks.
- look at the Arctic & Antarctica folder and complete some of the work set there - find out about each of the
regions, sketch a snowy scene or as we've had so much snow, could you build an igloo or a snowman? See
the Challenge Tab for more information.
- Safer Internet Day - work to be done on Tuesday 9/2/21.
- mix and match.
This week's book is ‘The Three Billy Goat's Gruff’.
Remember that Tuesday is 'Safer Internet Day' so we would like you do do internet safety activities on this day. Please see the folder for activities.
Phonics: Please keep practising your new Set 2 phonics every day - 10 or 15 minutes is all you need to do. There are sound cards linked to each of the Set 2 Sounds in the Phonics folder – you could use these to practise – go on a ‘Word Hunt’ or play ‘What’s in the Bag?’
Only focus on one sound until you are sure of it. Play games linked to the sound and see can you identify it in words, e.g. ‘ow’ – blow, snow, slow, show, grom, glow, know – can you sound out words with the new sound in it?
Once you are sure, move on to a new sound, but keep practising the sounds you have learnt – and also do a quick recall of the Set 1 sounds. Remember, you will find RWI lessons for Set 1 and 2 on the ‘Ruth Miskin YouTube channel’, the link can be found in the Phonics folder.
The Phonics Comics are also available for you to read and are linked to the Set 1 and some of the Set 2 RWI Sounds – if you haven’t, choose one and have a read. There are also some Read and Race games linked to Set 1 sounds and some other sounds.
Tricky words: Please keep practising the Set 1 and 2 Red words - can you think of a sentence with a tricky word in it?
Reading: It is important that you continue to read every day. Try reading ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ with your mum or dad so you know the story really well. Sound out some of the words by yourself. Can you join in with parts of the story that you know?
Drama: Could you act out the story using the role play masks? Could you retell the story to your teddies?
Writing: Discuss the different letter sounds you can see in the story e.g. the ‘ff’ of Gruff, the ‘ss’ of grass or the ‘ll’ of troll. Can you use descriptive words to describe the troll or the billy goats? For example, ‘The troll had sharp teeth and a big nose’. Could you make a ‘Wanted’ poster for the troll? Could you write a sorry note from the troll to the billy goats or from the goats asking the troll if they could cross his bridge? Get mummy or daddy to take a photo of your writing and send it to me or put it on EExAT.
Maths: Keep working on your mental maths skills and practising your numbers up to 20. If you need to, use a number line to help. Have you seen the 'February Maths Master' challenges? Find it below.
Can you order the goats from smallest to largest? Talk about the sizes used in the story – smallest, medium sized, biggest – can you find toys and items from home and group them in these sizes? Using 2D and 3D shapes, try building your own bridge. Try grouping items in 3’s and count up to find totals. Email me a photo of you working or upload it to EExAT. There are also links to Maths ‘Shape and Sorting’ lessons on The Oak National Academy website.
Understanding The World / Science: Try building your own bridge for the goats to cross or growing your own green grass. If the billy goats couldn’t use the bridge, could you build them a raft?
Expressive Arts and Design: Using junk modelling, build and paint your own bridge. Can you design your own scary troll?
Music: Try singing some of the songs with mummy or daddy.
Physical Development: Can you make bridge shapes with your bodies? In your back gardens or if you are out on a walk, can you find bricks or stepping stones to make a bridge to step across? Build a bridge and go over and under it.
Parents, you will find lots of activities below linked to 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. If possible, try to do at least 15 minutes every day on each of these key areas, plus lots of independent and creative play:
