What's happening today?

Say our daily prayer and look at our visual timetable to see what jobs you have lined up for today.


Today in handwriting, we are continuing to practice writing the letters that belong to the 'Zigzag Monster' letter family. Today we will focus on writing the letter w. As an extra challenge see if you can write some words beginning with the letter w. Open the PowerPoint presentation below and then click on the letter w to watch the pencil show you how to write that letter. Just in case you can't get the PowerPoint to work on your device, here is a short video on writing the 'Zigzag Monster' letters that may be useful.



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


For our physical activity this week we are off to the Dough Disco with Mrs. Oliver and Miss White. Each day either Mrs. Oliver or Miss White will take you and your dough to the disco for a finger workout!


Today we're going to Dough Disco with Mrs Oliver! Click the link to access the video.



Today in Literacy we are continuing with the Cinderella story. You need to begin by watching my lesson video. You will be writing the second half of the Cinderella story, using your story map to help you. Click on the link below to access the video lesson.


There is a class story map and the Cinderella text to help if you need them.



In today's Maths lesson we will look at One more and one less. Click on the links below to access the resources for this lesson.

The lesson is split into 2 parts - the first video takes you up to question 1 on the worksheet and the second video helps you with questions 2,3 and 4. If your child finds it too much to complete both parts today, then feel free to leave the second part until tomorrow and do tomorrow's lesson in the Friday afternoon finishing-off time.  However, I think most children will probably manage both parts of the video in one go.

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 a previous RE lesson we finished our topic on 'Special People.' Today we will think about our new topic which is 'Meals'.  As always, when we start a new topic, we begin with a 'Big Question'.  I would like you to have a look at the lesson video , think about our Big Question and complete the activity, which is to draw a picture of you taking part in a special meal.
