Monday 24th January

Good morning and welcome to today's learning.

Physical development - fine motor control skills

This is a web address to a link that we use in school.  The children are all at very different stages in their handwriting, letter formation and pencil grip.  This site takes you through the stages. Last term we looked at the straight lines. We are now on curves. It shows you a little clip first and then you get a chance to have a go.  If you could start each day with a little bit of handwriting – it will help with letter formation.

We are also going to work through a letter a day. Use your white board.

Tunnels  - pre handwriting patterns.


Communication Language and Literacy - Writing

We begin our Monday morning by sharing what we have been up to at the weekend - Can you think it, say it, write it.

Think about your weekend - what did you do?

I went for a walk with my family.

I watched a film, we had a movie night.

I saw my grandma.

Things to remember:

Think about the sounds in each word.

Remember a capital letter at the beginning of each sentence. A full stop at the end. 

Can you try and remember a space in-between each word. 

I have added a writing frame at the bottom of the page for you. 


Today's new sound is 'ay'

I have added the Read Write Inc sheet below for you. 

Ay – may I play – day, play, may, way, lay, say, tray, spray

List of ‘ay’ words


Today we start  our new topic of ‘Growing 6,7,8’

This is the start of our new unit in maths today we are looking at numbers on from 5.  We are still applying the same patterns and processes that we did with 5 to the number 6,7,8. So today we are spotting number 6. 

A little game to play before you start – roll a dice  - can you spot the numbers. Do you start to recognise the formation of the dots and can start to say them without counting them?

Miss Cooper has got some tasks for you  -Can you go and find 6 around the house.

Miss Cooper mentions Six Dinner Sid in her clip today – If you would like to have a listen to the story her is the link below.
