Phonics

We have been learning about the sounds that letters make but today we are going to learn that letters have names too.  It's just like a cow is called a cow but it makes a moo sound. Watch the Alphablocks and join in with the alphabet song.

 

Writing

Can you write the letters of the alphabet in order? 

Can you write the capital letters to match?

Below are some things that you could use. There is a sheet to write capital letters to match lower case letters. There is also a gingerbread capital letter sheet. You could point to the letters and say what they are or if you can print them out you can cut them up and arrange them in the correct order or next to some matching lower case letters.

Maths

Yesterday we used the part/whole model in our maths work. Today we would like you to use that model again to find ways of making 7 and 8. Remember you can draw one, use hoops, plates or print one out.

 

Now listen to the story below.

Some of you may be missing school, your friends and even family at the moment which can be hard. Some of you may be happy to be at home. Some people may feel sad, worried or angry. It's okay to have these feelings. Listen to the story below. We can look forward to seeing each other again and what a fun time we will have!
