Maths WB 16/3/20: Subtraction

Hand washing

We have been talking about the importance of this regularly in school but I have attached some videos to help children understand why and to hopefully make it a bit more fun.

Below is a suggested schedule for if learning at home as experts believe that children sticking to a schedule is important at this time. This will help parents too and keep the day as normal as possible with a good balance of activities. 

Phonics and Spellings

Each day at school our 15 minute phonics sessions use the Monster Phonics scheme and are supported by the videos of Mr Thorne and his cheeky giraffe Geraldine.

The day by day overview is below and the log on details for the Monster Phonics website is:

Username: parents

Password: homelearning

We show the children the powerpoint, videos and other resources and they write the words down on a whiteboard. We encourage them to say the words back to us and reinforce their learning with crosswords, sentence writing including the words they have learned and games.

To take their phonics learning outside they could chalk write the words on the ground or use 'magic paintbrush' were they simply use a paintbrush and water to write the words on the ground.

 

There is also a good selection of activities and games to support learning on the following websites and many are compatible with tablets:

Any practice of spelling the above Common Exception Words would be brilliant and why not try practising them in one of the following ways:

Maths

Teaching resources website Twinkl is offering parents free access for a month to download as many resources as they need during this time. Just visit the link and enter the code PARENTSTWINKLHELPS to set up your free month.

I recommend that if your get the chance to log on then download as much as you can from the following list as these are good resources and we can continue to use these even when the children return to school:

  • Multiplication and division
  • Statistics
  • Geometry: Properties of Shape
  • Fractions 
  • Measurement: Length and Height 

There is also a good selection of activities and games to support learning on the following websites: 

Writing

 We have been looking at 'Into the Forest' by Anthony Browne.

Skills Builder and Careers

As a school we are taking part in the Skills Builder Programme which is designed to equip children with all the necessary skills that they will need for life:

"These are the skills that underpin success at every stage of life: they unlock learning while at school, ensure young people are fully prepared for the independence of university and college, and empower people to land their dream job".

The first section that we are going to focus on is 'Staying Positive'.      I would like you to read/listen to the story about Bill and answer the questions at the end. 

Our topic this term has been all about the Enchanted Forest. Would you fancy any of these careers?
