Important daily learning ideas
It’s important to keep reading a little every day, The Oxford Owl website is brilliant – click on the button below to find the link and your login details.
On the side of each book is a little colour marker. The Year 1 children are best to choose books with red, yellow or blue markers to start off with. Year 2 will be able to read the books with green, orange, turquoise and purple markers. The books get progressively harder as you scroll through the colour bands.
Use the Teach Your Monster to Read App and the Monster Phonics App to work through some of the phonics games, daily.
We are currently working on Phase 2/3 phonics with Reception- learning the letters and sounds and blending/ segmenting them to read and write simple words.
I will be adding any Monster Phonics PowerPoints and resources which you could try at home, to a folder on Teams. That way, you will be able to access these even if you can’t make the meetings.
And don’t forget our live lesson which will be held at:
11am every day. This will be your chance to learn directly with me and to see your friends.

Today we will be thinking about, one less. Start by doing the lesson together here.
I have put a related PowerPoint and Activity Sheet in the Reception Maths folder on Teams.
I will also add a list of the log in details for Numbots to the Maths folder on Teams. This is an excellent app which helps the children to develop a firm foundation in number. I would also recommend watching some of the Jack Hartmann youtube videos- there are some very catchy songs!
Today, in our Live Lesson I will introduce this on the Teams meeting, we will find a penguin in the classroom ! We have no idea where he has come from. What questions could we ask him? Can you think of some questions that you might ask the Penguin? Write some of your questions down. Don’t forget the question mark! You will be able to ask the penguin your questions on our Teams meeting on Tuesday.
We have learned about hot and cold places in the world and have started to think about the animals that live there. Today I would like you to think about how animals adapt to their habitats and to find out about ‘camouflage’. There are some Powerpoints in the folder on Teams, but also use the internet with a grown up to find out some more facts. Compare Arctic Foxes with Desert Foxes, Arctic Hares and Desert Hares. How do they fit in with their surroundings? Why do the desert animals have much longer ears? Watch this video about animals that camouflage in the jungle, and then try the activity here.
Try to write down or draw some pictures to show some of the facts that you have found out.
