Good morning everyone,
it was really nice to see most of you again yesterday on our zoom session and I hope you enjoyed the little games, stories and songs. It was nice to meet some more pets too! Big Man Bill the snowman is still sitting in my garden and he hasn't really changed in size. I'll pop a picture of him on the web page each morning and we can watch what happens to him - we might find he starts to get smaller a little quicker over the next couple of days, we'll have to wait and see, and see if we can work out why. I hope you completed your weather chart last week and have started another for this week. There are more charts and weather images stored in the Miscellaneous Resources section of the class 1 web page if you need them. Winter weather is a very mixed up thing - not all snow by any means. Anyway have a good day everyone, work hard and play hard too.
Letters and Sounds
Practise singing the Jolly Phonics songs. Start at 5m 28 secs on the letter j and stop after the digraph ai.
Now watch Mrs Mason's video introducing the digraph ee. You will need the following letters to make words with:
f b r p s t w ee
Practise writing one line of the letter r from yesterday (down the robot and up his arm) and then today we are practising the letter n. Start at Nobby's head and go down Nobby and back up over his net. DON'T START AT THE BOTTOM. Parents, please put a dot at the top of each n so your child remembers where to start. Do 2 lines and see if you can do some on your own. You'll need to print off page 41.
We can start this number time with a story too. This story is called 'Sidney the Silly Who Only Eats Six'. Can you believe he won't eat anything unless he has 6 of it - listen to the story and see if you could think of any thing he would eat a different amount of.
Story Telling - Bug Learns to Dance
First we are going to sing Incy Wincy Spider and then recycle and change it into a new nursery rhyme about a slug! Then you can listen to Adam or join in with him telling the new recycled story about a beetle that you thought of yesterday - I wonder what your favourite part of the new story was, be ready to draw the favourite part.
There are many different birds in the world of many different colours and sizes. Read the story of "Lucky Duck" below and notice how different birds' body parts help them to do different jobs.
