New books have been added onto your active learn accounts. Children should be reading for 20 minutes a day as well as practising your Phase 2 and 3 words. Keep up the fantastic reading!! The active learn website is very busy so it will be slow or not working at times. I know a few people have not been able to access their accounts. If you have problem, let me know then leave the website for a while. It might work later.
Spellings week beginning 30.3.20: practise these words in your spelling books or on a piece of paper:
Reading group 5: will, that, this
Reading groups 1, 2, 3& 4: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Have a go at writing sentences with these words in.
EVERY DAY Count up to 100 in ones, count backwards from 20, find one more and one less than a given number to 10.
This week's Maths on White Rose includes the books What the ladybird heard and the Ladybird heard next. If you don't have these at home, both books are available on you tube. One of the activities involves using biscuits and icing sugar. Instead you draw a simple ladybird shape to find different ways to make 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. Use Lego, draw spots or anything you have at home to show the different ways to make these numbers. Have a go at recording your work. There is an activity for each day. This week's activities are called week 2: www.whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/
This week think about the miracles Jesus performed. Read Jesus healing the blind man. A PowerPoint is available on
Write a list of people you can help during Lent and how you can help them. For example I can help my mum by tidying my room.
Keep saying your prayers:
Lunch time prayer: Bless us O God as we sit together. Bless the food we eat today. Bless the hands that made our food. Bless us O God Amen.
After lunch prayer: Thank you God for the food we have eaten. Thank you God for all our friends. Thank you God. Amen.
Hail Mary: Hail Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women and Blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for our sinners now and the hour of our death. Amen.
Night time prayer: God our Father, I come to say, thank you for your love today. Thank you for my family and all the friends you give to me. Guard me through the dark of night and in the morning send your light. Amen.
Have a look at the STEM activities you can do at home. The link is at the top of the page.
I know you have been following Joe Wick's morning workout. Don't forget to have a look at Mr Askey's activities to stay healthy to mix the exercise up. I have been playing basket in the garden and going for a bike ride.
