Message in a Bottle
Earlier this week, we thought about where a bottle would end up if we put it in the sea. We wrote some questions to see where our bottle ended up 
i.e. Is it hot? Is there a school?

This week, could you think of some more questions and practise writing them at home? Can you remember capital letters, finger spaces and full stops? Or will you need to use a question mark?

 

Maths

This week we have been learning about Length, Height and Distance.

 

Task 1

Look at the following picture.

Can you describe the picture using words such as shorter, taller, smaller, longer? i.e. The doll is _____ than the wooden block. 

What shapes can you recognise? Could you practise writing these sentences?

 

Task 2

Think of opportunities where you can measure.

Can you compare objects around the house? How could you measure them? Could you use a non-standard form i.e. blocks or cans? How many paces long is your garden? Who is the tallest in your family? Who is the shortest?

 

Task 3

Continue to practise your skills with these two games.

Reading

 

Library Books

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.)
