Monday 29th June
The next 2 week's challenges will be based on ‘Superworm’ and ‘Supertato’.
Phonics: Please keep practising your phonics every day and continue to work through the Phase 3 sounds at your own speed. Focus on the vowel digraphs:
ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er
The Phonics Play website https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/3 has excellent games that you can play with the children linked to the different sounds. The Phonics Play comics are also a useful resource to help with practising these Phase 3 digraphs.
Reading: It is important that you continue to read every day. If you have the books, try reading them with your mum or dad so you know the stories really well. Sound out some of the words by yourself. Can you join in with parts of the story that you know? If you don’t have the book at home, you could watch the videos of Miss Avey reading ‘Supertato’ and Mr Tierney reading ‘Superworm’.
Writing: Can you think of and write your superhero name? Could you write a description of your superhero? Could you write a secret message for another superhero to read? Does your superhero have an arch villain as an enemy? What do they look like? Get mummy or daddy to take a photo of your writing and send it to me or put it on EExAT.
Maths: Can you order the different superheroes or vegetables from smallest to largest? Can you estimate how many worms you can see? Using your superhero powers, go on a shape hunt around your house and garden, what shapes can you find?
How strong are you? Can you find the heaviest toy in your room? Could you order different toys from lightest to heaviest? With mum or dads help, choose different sized containers and learn about capacity. Which container will hold the most? Test it out.
Can you count backwards? Start at 10 and count back to 1. Was that too easy? Try starting at 20 and count back all the way to 1. Get mummies or daddies to email me a photo of you working or upload it to EExAT.
Understanding the World: Learn about worms and how to care for them using the fact cards - if you're feeling up for a challenge, try to make your own worm hotel or wormery.
Art & Design: Design your own potato character or make a pair of superhero cuffs. Make your own superhero jet pack or design your own really cool superhero mask.
Music: Could you make up a song about superheroes? If you’re not sure you can, why not sing along to some of the superhero songs available in the Music folder.
Physical Development: Make your own superhero obstacle course around the garden – get mum or dad to video you completing it. Why not do it dressed as a superhero?
Lucky Dip: Surprise me! Send me a photo or video of you learning to do something that I wouldn't expect!
Good luck and have fun!
