Home Learning Week 4 Learning Activities

Home Learning Week 4

Summer term – Summer 1, Week 2.

Hello, we hope you are all well. We have really enjoyed finding out what some of you have been doing this week – please remember that you can email us at any time with messages, photos or questions at receptionclass@collinghamschool.org We will always try to reply as quickly as possible!

We hope you are still keeping active and enjoying going for a daily walk or finding time to play outside.

This week we have tried to split the activities into days and linked them to the Read Write Inc Website and the National Oak website, but please feel free to do them as you please. If you do not wish to use any of the website, we have added the new key sounds for this week. Having a structure and a lesson to watch each day may work for some people but not for others so we are trying to offer a variety of approaches for you to use. We hope this makes sense to you. 

 

Phonics

Speed Sounds:

Practise saying your letter sounds in-and-out of order as quickly and accurately as you can. You could put a timer on your phone and see how quickly you can manage it! We have attached a Simple Speed Sounds Chart in Week 1 resources Speed Sounds Set 1 and Set 2+3.

If you feel your child isn’t saying the sound correctly, we have attached a booklet in Week 1 resources called Phonics Guidance for Parents to give you more information about how we teach and say the sounds. On p.4 and p.5, there is detailed information on how to say the sounds. We have also attached a sheet called ‘Read Write Inc’ if they find it hard to write the sound, we say the rhyme to them.

 

You can access Read Write Inc Speed sounds lessons at the following times and are available for 24 hours: 

 

Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30am 
Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00am a
Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30am

If you aren't able to watch the online lessons from Read Write Inc, you might prefer to organise your learning as suggested below, but please feel free to mix and match and do what suits you and your child. 

Tuesday and Wednesday

New Sounds 

This week we would like you to learn the new sounds: 

air’     ‘ir’

Tuesday air -  ‘That’s not fair’        Wednesday  ir – ‘whirl and twirl’

Green Words

There are ‘green words’ to go with each sound and we have attached these to go with the different sounds in the ‘Resources for Week 4’ section.

  • Focus on one sound and practise writing that sound saying the rhyme.
  • Reading focus words: Reading words that are linked to your focus sound. You will need to sound out your word and then blend the sounds to say the word. Have ‘My turn, your turn’ to demonstrate.
  • Writing your focus words. First, count how many letters are in the word and the how many sounds and show me saying (eg.) “4 letters, 3 sounds.’ Then do ‘Fred fingers’ where you say each sound in the word, pointing to your fingers at the same time. Repeat a few times, then write the word. If you forget  sound whilst writing, go back to your Fred fingers and see if you can work it out. Check your word at the end and give yourself a tick or a smiley face.

 

Thursday:

Tricky Words:

Practise reading and writing your tricky words using Phonics Play. If you don’t wish to use online learning or have access to the internet, you could write them in a book, paint them, using water and a paintbrush and paint them outside, draw them on large pieces of paper. You could play a bingo game with them, matching pairs game, hide and seek (write out several and hide them and then go and find them!). You could get your child to test you on the words by reading them out. This would provide an opportunity for you to model making a mistake and see if your child can identify it.

Tricky Word Groups: (Feel free to consolidate some tricky words or move your child on and learn new tricky words. Just do what suits them) 

Phase 2: I    no   the  to   go    into 

Phase 3:  he she we me be you all are her was they my

Phase 4:  said have like so do some come little one were out what when there

Choose one of the ways above (or any of your own) and practise your tricky words today.

 

Friday and Monday

  • Go on a plant and flower hunt!  Use the sheet in resources or just look for plants in your garden on when on a walk. Do you know what they are called? Ask mummy or daddy to look them up on Google! What are the different parts? You could even collect any broken or fallen parts of plants/ flowers and make a poster or booklet.
  • What does a plant need to grow? Discuss this question and find out what your child already knows.
  • Grow something! We know lots of you are already doing this which is brilliant! Perhaps your child could write labels for their plants, take weekly photographs or make a booklet/ diary to record photos, drawings, observations or measurements?
  • Living and non-living PowerPoint and sorting. Or create your own sorting activity using household/ garden objects!
