Welcome to Robins Class
Please find links below to the home learning for the week commencing 18th May. This week we will be finding out about the explorer Ibn Battuta. He is our last explorer for this term. Which explorer has been your favourite?
We have decided not to present the planning as a timetable to give the children more flexibility when completing the activities. I have, however, attached a blank timetable for those of you who would like to keep the structure going. You can print this off and add the activities to the empty slots. The children will be able to complete all of these activities without printing any of the work sheets off. I have included links to worksheets if you would prefer to work on these.
We will continue to use ‘ClassDojo’ to communicate with families directly and you may choose to share what you’ve been doing on there. Please upload any work that you choose to share onto your child’s portfolio in ClassDojo. I may also share links to ‘Class story’ or other fun activities to try at home. Please check Class Dojo regularly and message me to let me know how you’re getting on. I’d really love to hear from you all, as I’m missing the children very much.
Please could you listen to your child read at home, this really helps them to make progress in both their reading and writing. Sharing books as a family exposes children to a wider range of vocabulary and can really improve their ideas for writing and their understanding of language. I can’t wait to hear how the children have been getting on. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Many thanks for your continued support.
Stay safe and take care,
All of the English activities can be done on plain or lined paper this week.
I’d recommend that the children use two different objects as counters. E.g. Raisins for the first number in the number sentence and skittles for the second number. The objects don’t need to be consumables (although I always find that it adds interest!) It’s important that the children are looking at how many of the second object have been added to make up the first grid of ten and that they link this back to their knowledge of number pairs to 10.
I’d recommend that the children use two different colours when completing this activity. One for the first number in the number sentence and another colour for the number they are adding. They need to ensure that they fill the first grid up before moving onto colouring in the second grid.
