Good morning Metis class, I hope you are up and ready to start a brand new week of exciting learning. This week we are starting our new topic called 'Explorers'.
On Friday I will be creating a celebration video to show the success of everyone's learning whilst they have been at home - please get your grown up to send me any photos they have of you completing your home learning to be featured in the video.
Take a look at all the home learning your friends have been up to so far in the slideshow below!
Today I would like you to watch two youtube videos that I have made for you. The first one will be the same everyday as it is a recap of all the sounds we have learnt - please say the sounds along with the video as you normally would at school.
In your packs you will find a sheet with lots of spellings on. Please can you read as many spellings out loud as you can. Choose a line of spellings (5 spellings) and write them in your books.
We are starting our new English topic this week - all about diary writing.
For today’s lesson I would like to see how much you know/don’t know about writing a diary entry.
Please can you write a diary entry about your weekend.
Top tip: Start your writing with

Challenge: Can you include a sentence about how you were feeling at the weekend? ‘ For example: I was feeling excited because I got to eat my favourite breakfast’

Read through the following slides which will show you all about naming positions. Can you name where each person comes in the race?
(Grown ups your child might need support reading the writing but during guided practice they should complete this as independently as possible.)
Task: Collect 10 animals/toys/objects/teddies from your house and have a race with them ( you could get your family involved too) which came first? Who came second? Who came last?
Read a book from your book bag, or from home if you prefer. Can you tell your grown up how many full stops there were in your book?
Work through the slides like we would do at school. (pause the slides to read).
(For Grown ups- Everybody reads is the page where your child should read as much of it as they can, Discussion - have a go at answering the question and discuss different answers, Task- The activity that I would like to be completed by the children)
Task: In your books can you create a list of what it takes to be a great explorer. For example:
