Meditation

For meditation, feel free to look for some yoga and mindfulness videos you might like to do under the ‘Mindfulness’ tab from previous weeks, or check out ‘Cosmic Kids Yoga’ online or ‘GoNoodle’. You may want to listen to any stories we post on Tapestry.

Read Write Inc

You can use the links under the ‘Phonics’ Tab on the home learning page of the website to play some fun games on the suggested phonic websites.

 

Additionally, there is a document under the ‘Phonics’ tab called ‘Practical Phonics Ideas’ with some practical ideas to recap sounds and blending skills.

 

If you would like any Read Write Inc video links to any particular sounds, please email one of the team and we can send a link to you on Tapestry.

 

English 

This week we are continuing our 'Marvellous Me' topic, thinking about how we stay safe and healthy. Please see the Parent Mail sent to you to have a look at our curriculum knowledge organiser to find out more about our learning intentions for this half term. Please also see our curriculum provision map on the curriculum overview section of the Early Years section. 

 

This week we are going to be continuing to think about healthy eating. Can you look at the 'EatWell Guide' PowerPoint at the bottom of the page to have a look at the different types of foods that we need to eat to have a balanced diet? How do each of these different types of foods help our bodies? 

 

‘Cereal (rice, pasta, bread - sometimes known as carbohydrates etc.) gives us energy’ – wave arms in the air.

‘Proteins (beans, meat, fish etc.) help our muscles grow’ – feel muscles in one arm.

‘Milk and dairy foods (cheese, yoghurt etc.) make our bones and teeth stronger’ – show a toothy smile. 

‘Vegetables and fruit make us healthy all over’ – draw a big circle in the air to represent the body feeling healthy all over.

 

Each day can you write a list of what you eat and have a look on the 'EatWell' diagram at the bottom of the page to see which category the foods you eat are in? Can you remember how these different types of foods help our bodies?

 

Can you have a go at writing a shopping list for a healthy picnic that you can have at home this week?  Use the EatWell diagram to help you think of some snack ideas for your picnic that includes all the areas of food. 

 

Can you write an invitation to someone in your family to attend your healthy picnic? Discuss and think about the different features an invitation needs such as who is the invitation for, where is the picnic, what time, what will be included at the picnic and who to RSVP to. 

 

After you have enjoyed you picnic, can you write about your picnic? Who came? What snacks did you have? Which one was your favourite? Did you play any games? 

 

 

Maths

This week we are going to be learning about combining groups. 

 

If you have a TV license, can you watch this NumberBlocks episode about combining groups? 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08r3xqq/numberblocks-series-2-numberblock-castle 

 

You could watch this Oak Academy lesson on combining groups.

If you would like to try an extra challenge you could watch this Oak Academy lesson on addition and 'adding on'. 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/exploring-addition-by-adding-on-c8wkgd

 

Using Oliver’s vegetables PowerPoint, can you write some addition stories? Grandad has asked Oliver to help plant some more vegetables. Can you help Oliver to work out how many more vegetables he has put into the veggie patch to get the right amount that grandad needs? It would be beneficial to use objects to help you count.

This week we are going to be thinking about how exercise helps us stay heathy and strong. Why does exercise keep us healthy and strong? Each day can you do some exercise and write a list of what you have done. Maybe one day you could create an obstacle course with things you have at home for you and your family to complete.

PE with Jo (Joe Wicks) and Cosmic Kids Yoga are good resources you can use online. 

 

Can you draw and design a healthy meal thinking about the EatWell diagram to help you? Maybe you could even have a go at making it!
