Tuesday 11th January

Good Morning

Welcome to today's learning. 

We start our Tuesday's with PE. I know it may be tricky at home but here are some ideas for you.

We are looking at ball skills.

How can you look after the ball and keep control of it?

You can play this game indoors or outside. (if you are well enough)

Can you "take the ball for a walk" they should move around the area, keeping hold of your ball in their hands.

If you are finding this easy... can you - Increase the speed of the activity but ensure the ball is kept under control.

If you have someone at home who can join you for the game otherwise you could play against the bed or an armchair or a wall...

Sit facing each other and roll your ball back and forth.

Make sure you have their hands in front of their body to stop the ball.

How good are you at stopping and controlling the ball? 

Try some of these stretches when you have finished the ball game...

Tall Stretch - Raise arms and hands high above the head; reach up onto the tip toes; stretch the body as high as possible.

Wide Stretch - stand in a star shape; reach arms straight out at the side of the body; spread feet so they are just over shoulder width apart; stretch as wide as possible - imagine someone is pulling each of your hands.

Small Stretch - crouch down into a small tuck shape; balance on feet; hold legs tight into chest.

Repeat each stretch 2 or 3 times.


We are learning our set 1 sounds in class and having a go at blending the words.  

There are some tasks below for you to try.

If you are working hard to learn you sounds check out the sounds' sheet below. Can you ink of some words beginning with today's sound? Can you draw some pictures of those words? Can you spot them in books? Can you practise writing the letter? 

If you are remembering the sounds and starting to make words by blending the sounds together check out the 'ditty' story below. Can you read the words and talk about the short story? If you become familiar with it can you read it without sounding any words out? 


Here is the link for Today's maths.

Today we are looking at different ways to make numbers to 5. Looking at more and fewer. 

Can you show or draw different ways to make 5.

I have added a further maths activity on exploring zero and not zero. - if you would like to do something extra. 


Make sure you share a book today.

We are looking at the story The Smartest Giant in Town by Julia Donaldson

here is a youtube link if you don't have a copy at home.

Well done for your hard work today.
