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 f. As an extra challenge see if you can write some words beginning with the letter f. 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 we are undertaking another book talk. Look carefully at the picture and then complete the grid with your thoughts and ideas. There are no wrong ideas here, just write down what you think for each box on the grid. See if you can challenge yourself and come up with as many things as possible for each box. Click the link below to access the video lesson.


The picture is shown below, and you can access the Book Talk grid by clicking on the link for that. You don't have to print that out, you could draw the grid out if you wish.


Today's Maths is an activity challenge. Watch the video lesson first then have a go yourself. You will need 2 ten frames (we sent some of these home in your packs if you didn't collect a pack you can just draw 2 ten frames out or print out the ones I will post) and some objects for counting.

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.


Today in RE we are continuing with our topic on 'Special People.' For today's lesson we are going to think about how the parish family gathers together together to celebrate the Mass with the Priest on Sunday. We will pay particular attention to how the Priest welcomes the parish family to Mass. You can watch the video lesson by clicking the red link below.


You can also watch a video of Father Frank welcoming people to the Mass at St. Peter's Hinckley last Sunday (17th January). We look at this clip during the video lesson, but I have included it here so that you can re-watch it if you want to. Click on the red link below to watch the video.
