Morning Room 5 and parents!
Here are some activities for you to do this morning. Firstly, some links to websites that we use in Room 5, starting with a very popular ‘Wake Up, Shake Up’ routine:
Here is the link to Cosmic Kids, where we get all our yoga and ‘peace out’ activities. The ‘candle of concentration’ is one of my favourites. There are loads of great activities for deep breathing and reducing anxiety, which may prove very useful during this unusual time: https://www.cosmickids.com/category/watch/
Our normal morning timetable throughout the week goes like this:
8.45-9.00: Practise spellings (the same sheet as the one the children bring home) Remember about ‘Squeebles’!
9.00 – 9.05: Wake Up, Shake Up
9.05 – 10.00: Maths
10.00 – 10.15: Assembly. Our theme for this half term is stewardship and looking after our world and each other.
10.15 – 11.00: English
11.00 – 11.15: Phonics/Letters and Sounds – use phonics play Phase 5
11.15 – 11.30: Break
11.30 – 11.40: Mindfulness (we use Cosmic Kids for ‘peace out’)
11.40 – 12.25: a foundation subject such as art & design, geography, computing, music, PE
You may wish to try and keep to this kind of routine.
So, for today, here is what you can be doing:
Maths: Find the missing number in the number sentences. You can also have a go at the number patterns sheet below.
Using a number line would really help with this: https://content.twinkl.co.uk/resource/7c/cc/t-n-2440-numbers-0-to-20-number-line-_ver_1.pdf?__token__=exp=1584605205~acl=%2Fresource%2F7c%2Fcc%2Ft-n-2440-numbers-0-to-20-number-line-_ver_1.pdf%2A~hmac=f733d25fb7ed0026519face1b61e9abb3f90039c60d2b23505d0659bf5e9a007
English: Can you instruct a grown up to do something? It could be going from one room to another, or fetching something. Give them one step at a time to follow. Remember to keep instructions short and bossy! Your first instruction may be something like: Stand up.
Phonics: Use the flashcards to practise all Phase 5 graphemes. Then look at the ‘investigating alternative spellings’ under Phase 5c. Have a go at ‘oo’. Look at the phoneme spotter story first. See what words you can find with an ‘oo’ sound and then try the ‘word sort’ game that follows.
PE: We have been refining our African animals dance, with small groups doing different moves. This was starting to look really good. Play the video and show your adult how well you can perform each of the animal moves! Remember to be absolutely ready to start each move and see if you can remember the sequence! You may have to keep pausing the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7l5oUWE73g
You could have fun making an animal mask to go with the dance.
Have a good morning everyone. I will post later with afternoon activities as I have to do the school run right now!
Please feel free to email me, and I would love to hear from the children too! I have spoken to a couple about having a go at emailing. My email address is: Garcia.H@pontesbury.shropshire.sch.uk
Hope to hear from you,
Mrs Garcia x
