Four Elms Primary School

Monday 1st March

Must - Reading (RWI or guided reading) 

 

RWI – watch the relevant speed sounds lesson:  

Set 1:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqtjeOwy75M&feature=youtu.be  

 

Set 2: igh - https://youtu.be/1CUZmBaDK4s   

 

Set 2/3 –  If you have been learning set 2 and have moved onto set 3 please watch this video:

Set 3 – if you have been learning set 3, we are going to go through the sounds again to help build our fluency:

Then read the RWI book online https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/reading-schemes-oxford-levels/read-write-inc-phonics-guide/ 

 

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). 

A general guide is: 

1st read – decoding all the words – sound out as much as you need to. 

2nd read – read for fluency (try to read with more fluency and expression). 

3rd read – read with fluency, expression and comprehension. Try answering the comprehension questions at the back. 

 

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

 

Guided reading  

Complete the guided reading task at the bottom of the webpage. If the reading is taking you longer than the time allocated, then feel free to share the reading with an adult.

Orange- Use sharing to help you find fractions of a set of objects. Answer the ‘year 2 maths orange challenge’ and ‘year 2 maths orange challenge 2’. Rather than circling the fractions please write the fraction sentence e.g. ½ of 12 cats = 6 cats

Orange is for those who feel confident to complete the questions without the support video. Red is for those who would like to challenge themselves.   

   

Task 2: 

If we wanted to plan a welcome back to school party, we would need to find out how many of each item we would need to buy. I need you to help me to work out how much we would need to buy so I can ask Miss Fermor and Miss McCann if we are allowed to have a welcome back to school party.

Green group we will be working together to use the grouping method to solve the multiplication problems. I will help you with the first few and then you can help me be solving the rest.

Red group, when I went to the shops, I found out that some of the items could be bought in different size packets.
