YR Thursday 21st May
Hello. We hope you are all well. Here are the challenges for today!
Today we are looking at the blend ‘ct’. Write the words act, insect, project, correct, collect and inspect on a piece of paper and ask your child to draw the sound buttons. Where there is a double letter there should only be one sound button (for example under the rr in correct). Encourage your child to read the words by stretching the sounds and then blending them back together.
Using the attached worksheet (which you can print or just use on the screen) look at the picture and discuss what can be seen. Emphasise words which could be used that have the ‘ct’ blend. Ask your child to write about the picture. Encourage them to think of one idea. This idea will be their first sentence. They should spell as independently as possible, using their basic code (letter line) and tricky words to help them. You may need to remind them to begin with a capital letter and end with a full stop. Once they have written their first sentence, they can write subsequent sentences in the same format, following on the same line after their first sentence ended but again beginning with a capital letter and ending with a full stop.
Play alien escape on phonics bloom, spelling the words to help the alien to escape. This is quite a tricky game so they will need their basic code (letter line) nearby! https://www.phonicsbloom.com/uk/game/alien-escape?phase=4 Don’t forget you can always revisit the games from the previous weeks: https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/bingoOriginal/index.html http://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/forestPhonics/index.html

Maths: Place value Numbers to 20;
Play make an exchange. You will need something to represent tens, something long is good for this, for example matchsticks or pencils, and something smaller to represent ones, for example buttons. You will also need your number cards 11-20. Shuffle the cards and put them face down in a pile. Pick the top card and ask your child to make that number from the ones pile. (ie using the buttons). Once they have made it explain that they can exchange 10 buttons for one of your tens. Ask them “Can you make an exchange?” Once the exchange has been made look at how the number is made from one ten and however many ones. Repeat for different numbers. This should help to consolidate your child’s understanding that the 1 in a two digit number refers to the number of tens and that the second digit is the number of ones. (Ones used to be referred to as units but this terminology has changed.)

PSED – Please could you ensure that you have uploaded your child’s response to the return to school and children’s feelings questionnaire. We really need them ALL TO BE IN BY TODAY so that we can ensure we are prepared and can plan carefully for their return.
Physical Development/Expressive Arts and Design: Can you make a ball maze game. You will need a box or tray and some toilet roll tubes. Cut the toilet roll tubes to size and arrange them inside the box so that they are on different angles with space between them. Stick them in place and then give each tube a number starting from 1. The aim of the game is to roll a ball through each tunnel in order, ie starting from one and counting up or starting with the largest number and counting down.
