"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Week 1 (22/2/21)

Monday

Share what you've been up to over the half term! 

Draw and label the pictures in your exercise books/onto plain paper or feel free to print the sheet out and work directly onto this. I can't wait to hear all about your half term news : )

 

Tuesday

Our new story this half term is called 'We're going on a bear hunt'.

Scroll down to listen to the story being read and acted out by the author himself, Michael Rosen! You can even join in with the actions! (Remember, an author is someone who writes books).

Then create a front cover for our new book - you can draw any of the characters or settings on the front cover, it's your choice! Make sure to add the title of the book and the author as well!

I've uploaded a template book cover if you want to use it or use plain paper/exercise books : )

 

Michael Rosen performs We're Going on a Bear Hunt

Wednesday

Today we're looking at the sound 'i-e' like in the words 'nice' and 'smile'. Can you think of any other words with this sound in? Watch the 'i-e' speed sound lesson below to practice, then work your way through the numbered steps.

 

  1. Decide which word you want to write about e.g. slide
  2. Think of a sentence with your chosen word in e.g. I went down the slide.
  3. Say the sentence lots of times to yourself to help you remember it (you can even say it in silly voices like we do in Phonics)
  4. Have a go at writing it out (use Fred fingers to help you spell and sound out)
  5. Look at what you've written - read it back to check it makes sense and it has capital letters, finger spaces and full stops in the correct places (the children should be used to checking their own work using the prompts at the bottom of the template sheet)

 

Gold star challenge:

Can you use question marks in any of your sentences today?

Thursday

Today we're going to create a story map for 'We're going on a bear hunt'! 

Story maps are really useful when trying to remember all of the events in the right order - it also helps us when it comes to re-telling and writing up the story.

Remember, we use arrows to help separate the different events and to show the order they happen in. We also draw special pictures at the beginning and end to help us see where the story starts and finishes.

To help you remember what happens, you can look back up to Tuesday's section and re-watch Michael Rosen acting and reading out the story.

 

See the documents below for support.

Friday

 

Today we're looking at the sound 'o-e' like in the words 'phone' and 'home'. Can you think of any other words with this sound in? Watch the 'o-e' speed sound lesson below to practice, then work your way through the numbered steps.

 

  1. Decide which word you want to write about e.g. cone
  2. Think of a sentence with your chosen word in e.g. I like eating ice-cream from a cone.
  3. Say the sentence lots of times to yourself to help you remember it (you can even say it in silly voices like we do in Phonics)
  4. Have a go at writing it out (use Fred fingers to help you spell and sound out)
  5. Look at what you've written - read it back to check it makes sense and it has capital letters, finger spaces and full stops in the correct places (the children should be used to checking their own work using the prompts at the bottom of the template sheet)
