Handwriting Lesson

Today in handwriting, we are continuing to practice writing the letters that belong to the 'Curly Caterpillar' letter family. Today we will focus on writing the letter d. As an extra challenge see if you can write some words beginning with the letter d. Click on the red link below to access the lesson video.


You all have the link to the lessons related to the sound sets that your child is learning. Your child also needs to look at the spelling videos as part of their phonics too. These have been shared with you. Start from lesson 1 of these videos and do 1 a day. They are working retrospectively, so your child should be starting to get familiar with the sounds they are being asked to spell with. If you cannot find your link or you have forgotten which sounds your child is learning please send me a message on Dojo.


Visit the Oxford Owl website to access their free e-library, which has Read Write Inc Phonics books to match where your child is at in phonics, and book banded books to match your child's school reading book level. You all have the login details for our class account to this site, but if you can't remember it please send me a message on Dojo.


You can also use books from your child's own book shelf for reading together, and you can now also join Earl Shilton's digital library. Don't worry if you're not a member of Earl Shilton Library, you can now join online. Just follow the link:

Physical Activity

This week we're going to Mousercise with Mickey and the Gang. Complete the short video workout with Mickey, then use the picture to join in with the Mousercise workout that we do in school. Have fun Mousercisers. If you complete both Mousercise tasks each day and post them on to your Dojo portfolio you will earn yourself a special Mousercise certificate!

For today's Literacy lesson you are going to create a piece of writing using your Text Map, all about the Royal Ball. For today I want you to only write up to the part where flowers are giving off a dainty fragrance. DO NOT WRITE BEYOND THIS POINT PLEASE. Use your text map to help you and use the video of you retelling the text map to help you with this too. Remember that although you may want to use some of the key phrases and words from the original report, these are you own words so please DO NOT copy from the original report. Also think about the work we've done on full stops and exclamation marks - which piece of punctuation will you use at the end of your sentences? I've have attached a writes checklist to help you. Click the red link below to access the video lesson.


Today in Maths we are thinking about adding one by using our number bonds. The worksheet covers today AND tomorrow. You will be working on questions 1 to 4 only today. 

5 Minute Mindfulness Meditation

Take a few moments today for this Mindfulness Meditation activity. We always start every afternoon with some meditation just to help us, relax, focus and turn off from the business of the day for a few minutes. Click on the red link below to access the meditation.


In History we are still thinking about our Kings & Queens topics. Today we will be thinking about significant British Monarchs - that means Kings and Queens who are very important to British history. We will look at where those monarchs sit on a timeline of British history. For today's activity you will be creating your own timeline of British monarchs. When you post your timelines on Dojo I would also like to tell you if there is any particular monarch that you would like to find out about. We will look at some of the most popular choices later on in our topic. Click the red link below to watch the video lesson.
