Literacy / Phonics:

 

Find below the link to the Phase 1 (Aspects 1-7) document. These are a range of phonics lessons / activities to help children develop their audiotory skills. They need to develop this skill before they are able to distinguish between different sounds in words, a skill they will require when learning to read. Work through the activities randomly through aspects 1-6, aspect 7 to be taught last.

Practical ideas for Maths home learning 

  • Count objects in your house (how many windows/doors/stairs have you got?)
  • Look at numbers in the environment (find numbers on the remote control/phone/ipad/kitchen - washing machine etc.
  • Count how many jumps, claps etc you can do in a minute.
  • Guess my number (it is 1 more than 5 and 1 less than 7, what can it be?)
  • Set up a pretend shop and use money to buy things.
  • Look for shapes in your house (can you find a square/rectangle/circle/triangle?)
  • Guess my shape (it has three sides, what can it be?)
  • Fill up different sized cups with water, which holds more/less?
  • Fill containers with water and talk about full, half full, empty.
  • Share out sweets/fruit/raisins etc, who has more/less? Is it fair?
  • Practice number counting to 10.
  • Count forwards and backwards.
  • Practice writing numbers.
  • Order numbers 1-10.
  • Can you find 5 of the same thing, 3 of the same thing etc?
  • Sing number songs (10 green bottles, 10 fat sausages, 5 little speckled frogs, 5 little ducks, 5 little men in a flying saucer etc)
