# Wednesday

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

Read your sound mat and tricky words.

Today's sound is 'ar'.

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

Play 'ar' bingo using these words:

park, fart (hopefully will get a few giggles with that one), tart, cart, march, barn

Choose one word from your bingo mat and write a sentence including a tricky word.

For example: He did a lowd fart. (lowd = loud phonetically)

Choose a phrase on your list from yesterday to start your story and write it down.

For example: Once upon a time...

Look at your 'Beginning' section of your Five Finger Retell sheet and retell and write the beginning part of your story.

You may want to introduce the characters and setting if you are up for a challenge.

For example:

Once upon a time in a wood there livd a gurl called Little Red Righding Hood. Her mum told her to taik some food to her grandmar.

(Remember children are are only expected to use phonetic writing. 'Once upon a time' would not be phonetic as they would have copied that from their list from yesterday and other correct words are tricky words that they should try to identify on their sounds mat.)

Encourage your children to write a few short sentences today but make sure the task lasts no longer than 10-15 minutes. If it does, leave it and return to the task tomorrow.

Mathematics

Recap the features of a clock.

Point to the minute hand.

Point to the hour hand.

Which one goes quicker?

Which one goes slower?

Which way round do the hands go?

Introduce o'clock:

When the long minute hand is on the 12, that means it is something o'clock.

To find out the time we need to look at what number the short hour hand is pointing to.

It's pointing to 4. That means it's 4 o'clock.

Repeat this with other o'clock times and ask your child if they can move the hands.

Throughout the day ask your children to tell you the time when it gets to an o'clock.

P.E.

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