Happy Tuesday Metis class!
Today (similar to yesterday) 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.
As part of our new topic we are going to be reading a story called Man on the moon: (a day in the life of Bob) by Simon Bartman which all about an astronaut called Bob. Listen to this story being read aloud. Play the video a few times so you understand the story.
After you have listened to the story can you answer the following questions? Write the questions and answers in your home learning books.
What does Bob have for breakfast?
How does Bob travel to work?
Where does Bob work?
What does Bob do on the moon? (There is more than one answer for this question)
Are there aliens on the moon in this story?
Challenge: Can you watch the video with no sound and read the story for yourself?
(For grown ups: Let your child sound out and write the words themselves rather than writing it for them)
Follow the link below to our handwriting scheme - Choose the animation for the letter p and q
Practice with your finger the letter formation. Then write the letter as many times as you can fit across a line in your book.
Go onto numbots for 10 minutes - your log in is stuck in your home learning book.
Practice counting in 1’s to 100.
Practice counting in 10’s to 100.
Practice counting in 5’s to 100.
Practice counting in 2’s to 30.
Read through the following slides which will show you all about naming positions in a queue. Can you name where the children are in the queue?
(Grown ups your child might need support reading the writing but during guided practice they should complete this as independently as possible.)

Task: Can you draw 2 pictures - one which shows a woman in the 1930’s and one which shows a woman now.
