Thursday 7th May

Good morning,  

 

It’s challenge day!! We hope you all feel ready to make your exercise videos and complete the 5th challenge set by Mrs Mitchell and Miss Fermor. We can’t wait to see them! 

 

We are aspiring, persevering, reflective learners, so we will be doing some work in our reflective journal to think about what we have learnt. 

 

You will recognise the lessons linked to the challenge as it has a  and AYOC to show it is part of The year of change activities.  

 

Please send us your work from the previous learning if you haven’t done so already. Have a good day!

Cosmic yoga - https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga

You could use this time to take a walk/bike ride as your daily exercise.  

9:30-10:00 

Phonics 

Your child should start their phonics session by watching a video which introduces a new sound. The video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ?fbclid=IwAR2zPh6YahiI_fOxLD_ikMQES-EWj_l_6L8MYTCYYUYMBv-1DePkw5_7--E.  

If the link doesn't work try clicking on this link https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/help-during-school-closure/ and then click on either the YouTube link or the Facebook link on the first line.  

The videos are only streamed at certain times of the day and are set depending. The times are:  

  • Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30am  

  • Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00am  

  • Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30am  

(It may be better to do mental maths and problem solving first and come back to phonics, if your video is at a later time) 

In terms of the reading section of the phonics lesson, Oxford Owl are making all the phonics books available online as ebooks. Here is the link https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-schemes-oxford-levels/read-write-inc-phonics-guide/  

Once you’ve clicked on the link then click on ebooks and then you need to register but it is completely free. Once registered you can then open all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child.  

This means you do not need to look at the RWI books on the school website and we will not be adding any further books there.   

Guided reading:  

If your child is not in a phonics group and instead does guided reading, please find newly uploaded texts on the Butterflies home learning page here: https://www.sealprimary.com/page/?title=Home+Learning&pid=470, please find today’s timetable and the text will be there.  

10:00-10:15

Spirituality  

 

Take this little bit of time out of your day to relax.  

 

Find somewhere that makes you feel calm and happy, make it comfortable and lie down.  

 

Play some calming music, you could use this music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUXEeAXywCY.  

 

Think about all the exciting things you have done this week. All the brilliant learning. Think about the beautiful signs of Spring we are seeing. Think about your family and friends. Think about the fact that God loves you and that he is all around us.  

 

Do some deep breathing and relax, sometimes it is good to just sit and focus on what is all around us.

Breaktime/snacktime

English  

Instructions  

LO: to use instructions. 

SC1: I know what an instruction is.  

SC2: I can use instructions to direct someone.  

SC3: I can put instructions into a sequence.  

In our exercise video we are going to need to use instructions so that the people watching know what to do.  

We use and follow instructions every day. We use instructions so that we know what we are doing. When you are following a cake recipe you are following the instructions for how to make a cake. Your instructions should be bossy!  

Watch this video to see what can go wrong when instructions aren’t very good: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zb43cdm  

Have a look at these instructions for making a pirate hat. You can have a go if you like, just find yourself a piece of paper. What would happen if one of the instructions wasn’t clear or if one was missing?
