Week 9 Other Activities
Please try to repeat these activities throughout the week. This will help your child to consolidate their previous learning through practice and repetition.
When we split something in half we split into two pieces or groups. Have a go at using playdough to make different objects or 2D shapes to then cut in half!
E.g. a pizza, an apple, a doughnut, a bowl etc.
You could then have a go at looking at how to halve numbers – using small objects or the cards in the PDF download below, can you find out what half of 4 is? Etc.
Please try to read with your child everyday. You can read books from home or you can read ebooks through Oxford Owl website by following this link:
If you need some guidance on which book level is most suitable for your child, please take a look at the table explaining book levels by following this link: https://cdn.oxfordowl.co.uk/2019/07/19/13/52/18/160/OxfordLevelsAndBookBands.png
This week we would like you to continue to focus on reading and writing 'red words'. These are often referred to as 'tricky' or 'sight' words.
We would encourage you to go through the attached list of red words (please see below). This will help you identify which words your child can read by 'sight'. It is a good idea to remind your child that 'red' words cannot be sounded out.
Please focus on the words that your child cannot yet read.
There are lots of ways that you can do this and we have included a few suggestions below...
Red Word Bingo!
Please find Bingo sheet attached below
Red Word Hopscotch
Spell Red words with magnetic letters
Red word SPLAT!
Practice writing the words with a paint brush
You could do this on concrete with a paintbrush and water or on a chalkboard if you have one!
Red word skittles
If you don't have skittles, you could attach the written words to empty plastic bottles!
Practice writing the words with chalk
Red word parking lot!
Write the words in car park spaces. Can you park the blue car on the word 'they', for example.
Practice spelling red words
Have fun with your learning this week and please remember that we love to see what you have been up to!
You can upload any work or photos onto your child's Tapestry account. We will then give feedback on your child's work, where appropriate.
