Maths 

Either finish off the maths assessments from yesterday

Solve puzzle problems on the webpage. You can choose which ones you do. Remember, these problems require us to think differently. You can use pictorial representations. You could even do them practically (for example, the beanbag one).Think through the problem carefully and explain your answers fully. They are not related to money. Some of the problems may take a while so you do not have to get them all done.

Reading – Please note the changes below for RWI phonics.

Oxford Owl have made available for parents all the ebooks linked to each RWI level. This means we no longer need to upload the books to the webpage. Instead, please go to the webpage below. If you go onto ‘ebooks’ then you will need to register (this is free of charge) and then you will be able to access all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child. Please note that the RWI phonics scheme is based on lots of repetition. Therefore, we usually read the same book about 3 or 4 times before moving onto a new book. For some children they may need to read it more than this to ensure they are completely fluent in reading the book (no sounding out). 

Here is the link for the Oxford Owl reading.

This website also provides lots of other information for parents about phonics. It has other resources on here too should you wish to explore! 

 For every phonics session, please continue to watch the set 3 speed sounds at 10:30 on the Ruth Miskin Youtube channel. Then read a book from the webpage detailed above.

 

Guided reading – for those of you in guided reading, please complete the guided reading task on the webpage: The dragon sitter part 1

Experience – 

Yesterday you spent time thinking about how you are going to be kind to yourself. This afternoon, I would like you to spend an hour focusing on your wellbeing. It could be that you do some yoga or some mindfulness colouring. You could spend time reading by yourself. You could listen to some guided meditations on YouTube. It is up to you, just make sure you are spending time relaxing and thinking about yourselfJ I have uploaded some mindfulness colouring if you are stuck for ideas.

 Parents please do join in if you can!

 It is important to fill other people’s buckets with acts of kindness but it also important to fill your own bucket up to.

2:15 - 2:30

Story time –  join Miss Theobald for storytime. We are sharing stories across the Federation!

 

 

 

2:30 -3:00

Music  Mrs Hunt (our music leader) has uploaded music videos to our website (curriculum – music). Every Friday afternoon we would like the children to practise the songs.   

 
  Mrs Hunt will be uploading new ones every now and then. The idea is that when we get back to school, we can have a celebratory singing concert. If your child would like to record themselves singing, please email clips to Mrs Chloe Hunt at: chunt@four-elms.kent.sch.uk. The clips will then be collated into a video.
