# Tuesday

Please put any work you do in your purple exercise book or take pictures and put them on Tapestry. I can't wait to see what you get up to!

Literacy

I saw an excellent game on Tapestry a parent was doing with their child (thank you...you will know who you are) where you put sounds up on a wall and hit the sounds called out with a Nerf gun. If you don't have a Nerf gun, you could throw a cuddly toy, a ball etc. Choose sounds your child needs practise with and you could even include tricky words.

Today's sound is 'oo' (long).

The lesson is on the Bug Club for you to complete as an optional activity.

I have allocated some games to play on Bug Club to practise oo (short, oo (long), ai, ee, igh and oa.

With our literacy this week we are going to be re-writing a fairytale.

Your child can choose either Little Red Riding Hood or Cinderella and will need their 'Five Finger Retell' sheet to help them.

Today you are going to be recapping the story you have chosen.

Spend time going over the story. Talking about the characters, the setting, the beginning of the story, the middle and the end. Also talk about what the characters said.

Discuss the key words you would hear at the beginning of a fairytale and ask an adult to write them down (or write them down yourself). For example: Once upon a time, one day, etc.

Mathematics

Todays lesson will be very language rich. Take time to make sure your child fully understands the features of a clock.

Look at the numbers, point to each one and say the numbers starting from 1.

Which number is at the top?

Which number is at the bottom?

Look at the hands.

Point to the long minute hand, this one moves quicker.

Point to the short hour hand. This one moves slower.

Which direction do they go around the clock? They go clockwise. Can you move your finger clockwise around your clock? Move your clock hands clockwise.

P.E.

Don't forget Mr Nicholls sets activities under the P.E. section on the Class Pages overview.
