This week in phonics we are looking back over the digraphs 'th' and 'ng'. Our phonics video linked above will remind you of these sounds.

Here are some pictures. Can you use your robot arms to sound them out? Challenge yourself to write these out and then add sound buttons!

 

 

Here are some funny pictures. Can you write a short sentence about what you can see?

Maths

 

Warm your brains up by trying to subitise the amounts in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKO0yQgJAho

Subitising means that our brains see an amount without counting.

 

This week, we are starting to look at subtraction. Listen and join along to this song. What happens to number of currant buns when someone buys 1?

Now listen to this song? Does the amount of people get 1 more or 1 less each time?

Challenge: Can you find 10 toys and make your own song. Don't forget, when you take 1 away each time, the number will become 1 less. Can you write a number sentence for this?

Literacy and Topic

 

This week our story is Bumpus Jumpus Dinosaurumpus By Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees.

 

Here is a link to watch it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSBbh6TYECc

 

After listening to the story, have a think about where a dinosaur might live. We call this a habitat. Have a go at drawing or making your own dinosaur habitat. Can you label or write about all the different features? You might like to include rocks, mud, rivers or even volcanoes!
