Hi Logan, When I click the links they are taking me to the login page for floppy phonics and oxford owl. Would you mind trying again or sending me a screen shot of what you are getting so I can fix it. :)

LOGAN SMITH(less than a day ago)

And the oxford OWL

LOGAN SMITH(less than a day ago)

The floppy phonics link goes to the main Home Learning Hub? Logan

Mrs Hill(about a week ago)

The link should be now fixed, fingers crossed!

LOGAN SMITH(about a week ago)

The phonics link leads to a count to twenty song??????

Mrs Hill(less than a month ago)

I might join you Ollie, I would love to go to Disney Land!

Ollie Taylor(less than a month ago)

Where would you go if you could fly? Ollie replied “back to see Mickey Mouse in Florida”

James Hodges(less than a month ago)

Chocolate cake rain!

Mrs Hill(less than a month ago)

Well James you are braver than me, a T-Rex as a pet would scare me too much. As to the sweets, what would you like it to rain instead?

James Hodges(less than a month ago)

I would be brave enough to have a T-Rex as they are one of my favourites! If it rained sweets I would throw them away because I don't like sweets! (Totally true!)

Happy St David's Day

One more week to go in lockdown and then next Monday we will be welcoming you back!  How are you feeling about it?

If you have any questions or worries then don't hesitate to email us.

Don't forget to join us for the last week of zooms.

(We will be using the same zoom link as last term which was sent to you by email) 

 

Dragon Challenges 1.3.21

These activities are designed to be done independently and should take approximately 15 minutes.  (We suggest setting a timer for those children who find it hard to be without adult attention.)  This should also mean parents have 15 minutes for tasks they need to do.  There are 3 each day, but you can do them in any order or repeat favourite activities if you wish.

Pretend that you are a knight, protecting a princess from a ferocious dragon. Can you design your own shield like the one in the picture, but in the 4 sections can you draw and colour 4 things that are important to you?

You could use cardboard from a cereal box or just a piece of paper will be fine.

Doubles

This week we are going to be focusing on recognising and learning doubles.  

Watch Numberblocks "Fourteen" (series 3)

Talk about how double means the same again.  Using cubes or objects take turns putting out a small number and the other person matching them.  For example, 1 person puts out 4 cubes and the other person must put out 4 cubes as well to match them.  The focus is understanding what double means.  If your child is confident encourage them to verbalise it as a sentence such as 4 doubled is 8.

Expressive Arts & Design and Being Imaginative

Build a Castle

Can you design and build a castle out of something? This can be lego, mega blocks, straws, pasta; whatever you like!

Decide what you are going to make it out of and draw a plan, you might need to look at some castle pictures beforehand. Next build your castle-this will take some perseverance!

Did it go to plan? If so, how could you improve it further? Remember to always be your best self!

If it did not go to plan, what did you have to change and why?

We are not looking for necessarily the best castle designs, we are looking for the best perseverance and independence!

Doubles

Watch Numberblocks "Fourteen" (series 3) again and focus on trying to remember the number block pairs which make each number.

Afterwards see how many number pairs they can remember.  Some are easier than others like 5 and 5 make ten.

Watch the doubles song and encourage your child to join in with it. Next play a game where you roll a dice and then double the number.  Use objects to help but encourage your child to recall as many as they can.
