Bore da!

It is the middle of the school week.  Do you know what day it is?

Days of the week with clicking

It is Wednesday.  Yesterday was .....?   Tomorrow is.......?

How many days are there in a whole week?  Can you say them in order?

What is the weather like today?  Maybe you can pretend to be a meteorologist like the people who present the weather on the radio or the television.


It is P.E. this morning.  Time to get your sports clothes on as fast as you can.  If your clothes are the wrong way wrong or the sleeves are the inside out try to remember what we do to solve the problem.

Today in P.E we are going to focus on catching and throwing.  If you have a ball in the house that is great.  However if not get some socks and make a ball with them.  


Frist a warm up - let's play the beans game 

run around and when your adult says a type of bean do the correct movement - 

running bean - run fast

jumping bean - star jump 

long bean - long and tall shape 

broad bean - star shape 

beans on toast - lie on the ground

chili bean - wrap your arms around your body and move them up and down like you are cold 

jelly bean - wobbly like a jelly 


I hope you are nice and warm now.


Now for the skills 

Get a ball and throw it into the air and try and catch it. Start off low and as you get more confident throw it higher.  Remember that you must watch the ball and have your hands out ready to catch it.  


Next throw the ball back and forth to your partner.  Remember to look at where you are throwing - aim at your partner's hands.  How many times can you throw it back and forth without dropping  it?


Another task you might want to try is to throw the ball at a wall and catch it (outside!).


Well done.

Time for a snack now to put that energy back into your body.

Letters and Sounds Time 

Why do we learn letters and sounds?  To read and write.

Let's go over the sounds that we have learnt so far.

letters and sounds intro.wav

We learnt the word  'I' last week.  This week we are going to learn a new word.  The word 'go,'  it is a tricky word - that means you cannot use the sounds to read it, you have to remember what it looks like.  Let's say it together 


Say it to the floor, say it to the ceiling, say it to the window, say it to your hand.

Have a look at the shape of the word, try and lock it in your mind.  Close your eyes can you see it?

Open your eyes.  Can you think of a sentence that has the word 'go' in it?  A sentence is a group of words that makes sense.  Try and think of 5 sentences.


Well done!  


In 'People and Communities' this week we are going to continue thinking about celebrations.  One of my favourite things to do for my children's birthdays is to make a celebration cake.  You can have a special celebration cake for any occasion - have a look below -

It is your turn now - draw a picture in your book of a celebration cake that you would like.
