Monday 20th April
Morning all and happy Monday! I really hope you have all had a happy, healthy and well deserved break and aren't too full of chocolate and sweets after Easter! I'm looking forward to hearing all about what you have been up to over Easter and seeing your brilliant work over the next few weeks. I'll now have access to my emails again so it will be lovely to hear from you in the coming days
As always if you'd like any help, advice or even just a chat, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
To get your writing hand warmed up for this week's learning, I would like you to write a short account of what you have been up to at home during the Easter holidays so me and Ms Mair can hear about all the fun things you have been doing. Don't forget your capital letters, finger spaces and full stops! Of course, you can add a picture too to illustrate your writing!
Choose one of your favourite books and read it with your parents - they can read to you or you can read to them, you choose! Remember to ask and answer lots of questions to make sure you understand what you are reading!
Maths - Doubling
This week we're going to start having a look at multiplication, which may strike fear into the hearts of some of you, but don't worry! Please note that at this stage, it is important that your child knows what they are doing, rather than using the mathematical vocabulary of multiplication. For example, rather than saying 4 x 8 = 32, we are looking for your child to be able to point out that there are 32 sweets altogether, 4 equal groups and 8 sweets in each group. Any questions, just give me a shout!
To start us off, watch Lesson 1 on White Rose Home Learning (link attached at the bottom of this page). You may want to pause the video at appropriate points to let your child have a go at different examples. When you have finished watching the video, have a go at the provided worksheet. It's a great idea to let your child use practical resources (e.g. lego, cubes, sweets - whatever you've got to hand!) to make sure they understand what they are doing.
Watch the SaddleBack Kids video I have provided at the bottom of the page, which retells the story of Jesus' resurrection in a child-friendly way. Encourage your child to tell you what happened in the video to ensure they have understood. Then, writing as either one of the women who entered the tomb or one of the disciples, your child should write 4-5 simple sentences beginning with "I" to explain what they saw when they entered the tomb, what happened afterwards and what they were feeling at different parts of the story.
Every morning Joe Wicks is hosting a live PE lesson on his YouTube channel at 9am. Don't worry if you can't wake up that early, they are on YouTube all day!
