Phonics: Find the following sounds in your pack: m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g, o, c, k, u, b, f, e, l, h. Keep these separate from the rest of the pack this week. (Unless you want to find them each day as a challenge!)
f, e, l, h are the new focus sounds for this week.
Review all sounds- how quickly can you say the sounds?
Can you practise writing our new sounds in your red phonics book. Use your sound cards to help you. Or challenge yourself to write them without looking. Remember to start your sounds in the correct place!
Let’s make some of ‘Fred’s words’ today. Here is a list of words you can make with your sounds.
Fan fun fat lip log let had hit hen
Ask an adult to say each word. Sound it out using your ‘Fred Fingers’ and then make the word using your sound cards.
Don’t forget to share your learning on ‘Evidence Me’.
I love to see videos of you saying your sounds.
Maths:'Uses the language of ‘more’ and ‘fewer’ to compare two sets of objects. (EYFS learning outcome)
Let’s explore our numbers to 20. Shuffle a pack of number cards 1-20 turn the first two cards over. Can you compare the numbers saying which is fewer/less and which is more?
Play a game of higher or lower. Place numbers 1-20 in a pile face down.
Turn the first card over and say the number. Can you guess if the next number will be higher of lower?
Turn the next card and if you got it correct place it on top and guess if the next number will be higher or lower.
If you get it wrong put all the cards back into a pile, give them a shuffle and start again!
How many cards can you guess right in a row?
Challenge: This week we are focusing on a story called ‘Zog’
Read the story with an adult and talk about what happens in the story. What are the characters like? Have a go at describing them!
If you don’t have the story here is a link to an online version.
Challenge: Can you draw a picture of Zog in your little yellow book. Can you label his features? What does a dragon have? Does he have fur or scales? Does he have sharp claws or no claws at all?
Phonics- Practise reading the sounds of the week; m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g, o, c, k, u, b, f, e, l, h. How fast can you say them?
Today we are going to practise writing our sounds. Choose 10 sounds to practise writing into your red phonics book.
Let’s have a go at writing ‘Fred’s words’ from Monday. Ask an adult to say a word from Fred’s list. Can you count how many sound you need to write that word. Say the sounds and then write them down.
Can you add some of our ‘special friend’ sounds into your pack- can you write some words for these sounds. See below a list of words with our 'special friends' in.
Challenge: Can you put some of Fred’s words into a sentence?
Maths:'Finds the total number of items in two groups by counting all of them.Using quantities and objects, they add two single-digit numbers. (EYFS learning outcome)
First have a go at my game below. Let’s see how well you know your numbers to 20!
Now let’s have a go at adding two numbers together to find the total.
Click the document below for practical ideas for adding two amounts together.
In each challenge you can extend it further by writing down the matching number sentence in your big yellow book.
Challenge: Let’s make a story map of the story ‘Zog’. Look at my story map. I have drawn pictures to help me tell the story. Can you make your own story map- you can do this in your big yellow book so you have lots of space! Make sure its colourful!
Zog- Story Map
Remember what Zog learns in each year and what happens to him as he practises each skill!
Challenge: Zog is a friendly Dragon. He has wings, sharp teeth, a long tail and a horn on his head.
Time for some research!
Can you compare Zog the dragon to another animal? What makes them similar? Can you draw the animal you have chosen and write down how it is similar to Zog. Use the template below or draw straight into your big yellow book.
