Seaside Virtual Show & Tell
We have been making lists of what we would take to the Seaside.
It would be lovely for the children to take part in a virtual show and tell to show their friends something they would take and why. It could be something useful i.e. sandals or even a special toy. Maybe is it is souvenir that they have from the seaside?
Please upload a short video to Tapestry and it will be shown as part of a Sharing Time next week.
This week we have been learning about Odd & Even.
Provide counters (bears/pasta/Lego pieces) and pairs of five frames or two plates. Ask you children to split a number between the two i.e. 7 counters. What do they notice? Are the groups equal? Do they know if it is odd or even? If needed, discuss the term odd number and reinforce what it means (a number that cannot be shared into two equal groups). What about 8 or 9?
Ask your child to collect a handful of counters (bears/pasta/Lego pieces). Is it an odd amount? How could you check? Now ask them to collect one counter and add it to their set. How many do you have now? Do you still have an odd number? Ask them to continue adding one more and discuss what they notice. What is the largest odd number you can build? How can you check it’s odd?
Children will be sent home with a library book on Thursday to enjoy over the weekend with their siblings/family. Please return this on Monday so they can be cleaned and set aside.
RWI Book Bag Books
Children will be sent home with a RWI Book Bag book that matches the one they have been reading with adults in school. Books will be sent home on Thursday and should be returned to school on Monday so they can be cleaned and set aside.
It is important that all books are read more than once (we recommend three times) so that your child can first decode, then grow fluency and comprehension. Please record all reading in your child’s diary.
(Not all children will be sent home a book. Children are regularly assessed on their phonic knowledge and confidence in blending CVC words.)
