Daily Reflection: Our focus this week is 'Honesty'
Honesty is telling the truth. Being honest is not always easy but it is really important that we be honest. Listen to the song and think about a time that you have had to tell the truth and be honest:
"Do that which is honest." 2 Corithians 13:7
Good Morning Imps,
We have made it to the last week of term 3! What a strange term it has been, not being able to see each other and doing our learning over zoom but we have definitely become braver and stronger and shown that we can do anything!
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TODAY IS THAT YOU HAVE FUN IN THE SNOW. YOU DESERVE IT AFTER ALL OF THE LEARNING YOU HAVE COMPLETED THIS TERM. IF YOU BUILD A SNOWMAN OR GO FOR A SNOWY WALK, TAKE A PICTURE AND SEND IT TO ME!!!! PLEASE HAVE LOTS AND LOTS OF FUN AND I WILL SHOW YOU A PICTURE OF THE SNOWMAN I BUILD!!!!
Start of the day:
Listen to our good morning song:
Listen to our crocodile snap song using the following link and get those hands ready:
Today we are thinking about how we form the letter s. Use the link to see how this is written: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z88An0KpuYo
Have a go at writing s on your whiteboards, on paper, in sand, in the air, with your wands etc.
Spend some time reading a book that you have not read or looked at for a very long time. Have a go at reading some of the tricky words found in the resources. Can you read and recognise them all? Keep looking at those tricky words because they will really help with your reading and writing.
We have been thinking about space lots and today we are going to be thinking the word ‘astronaut.’ Do you know what an astronaut is? Have you seen a picture of an astronaut before? Explore the pictures of astronauts found in the resources and talk about what you see. Draw a picture of your own astronaut and then around or next to your picture, write a question that you could ask an astronaut. Think about what you would like to know e.g., what do you eat when at work? Why do you wear a helmet?
Watch the video using the following link to learn about astronauts:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eT1PtaRA7ZM I would love to hear or read your questions.
Let’s think about our numbers to 20. When counting, can you remember all the numbers to 20? Count to 20 in a really quiet voice. Can you write your numbers to 20?
Today we are thinking about finding one more. When we add one more to a number, will the number get bigger or smaller? Finding one more is the same as adding + one to the number. Can you make a small number card for numbers 1-20 and a grid like in the resources, or you can print them off if you would prefer. Turn the cards over so you cannot see them. Choose one, place it on your grid and then find one more. Repeat the activity.
Revise all of your phase 2 sounds and the phase 3 sounds that we have learnt so far (j, v, w and z, x, y, qu, ch, th, sh, ng, ee, igh, oa and ai). You are doing amazing with your phonics, well done Imps! Today we learn a new sound ‘oo’ and this sound can be a tricky one because it makes a long ‘oo’ sound and a short ‘oo’ sound. Today we are thinking about the long ‘oo’ sound and use the link to hear the sound:
Can you use some cheerios to make some ‘oo’ words?
Make a galaxy glitter jar! For this activity you will need an old jar with lid, some paint, some cotton wool balls, glitter and water.
To begin, make sure your jar has been cleaned and dried, then you will be ready to start. Fill a third of the jar with water. Add several drops of tempera paint to the water (whatever colours you would like), put the lid on and give the jar a gentle shake to mix the water and paint. Then add your glitter, stars etc. Stretch out your cotton wool balls and press them into the jar, making sure the bottom of the jar is covered. Repeat the steps again e.g. water, paint, glitter and cotton wool.
Put the lid tightly on your jar and there you go……. your very own galaxy jar! Make sure your lid is tightly on!!!
