Welcome to Woodville School

Summer week 10 w/b 29th June

Homemade Musical Instruments
 

Hello boys and girls,

 

I hope you’ve been having a fantastic week so far and enjoying the slightly cooler weather, I know I am!

 

This week I thought it would be fun to make some noise and make musical instruments using objects you can find around your home. 


Me and my little girl made some drums using old tin cans, balloons and a hairband tied around them. We also made castanets using paper plates and bottle tops. As you can see from the pictures, she definitely enjoyed the drums!

 

In school this week we have made paper plate castanets too, and also straw harmonicas as you can see from the pictures. The children had so much fun making these instruments. I wonder what things you can find at home to make some noise!

 

I’ve posted a link below to give you some inspiration of things you could use or make.

Have fun making and playing music,

Wellbeing Wednesday 

 

Hello children πŸ‘‹πŸ»

 

Today, with the help of Zone Maker, we are going to learn how to create a safe space that we can retreat to when we feel out of control or need to rest our minds πŸ˜Œ.  Zone Maker can create a safe force field anytime she needs it, and with her help, you can too. 

 

First get your talking toy πŸ§Έ and talk about:

πŸ”ΉWhat should a safe space look like?

πŸ”ΉHow should a safe space make me feel inside?

 

Have a go at making your own safe space. This needs to be somewhere quiet. What will you use to create your safe space?

 

Remember: You won’t always have your safe space to retreat to. The great thing about Zone Maker is she can create a calming, safe space anywhere. 

 

Using your talking toy πŸ§Έ again, talk about:

πŸ”ΉWhere else could I go to feel safe if I’m not near my safe space?

πŸ”ΉCan I close my eyes and create a calming safe space in my mind?

 

Perhaps you can make a list of the different places you can go to, to feel calm or safe again πŸ˜Œ.

Air and ure

Phonics

 

Please look at your child’s Tapestry online journal for this week’s phonic teaching videos for the trigraphs air and ure. Remember there are also lots of activities and resources to support learning this sound on this page under Literacy too.

Maths week 10


Hello children πŸ‘‹πŸ»

 

This week you are going to look at patterns again, but it’s going to get a bit harder so let’s have a little reminder. White rose talk about patterns with letters. A letter is given to each different bit of the pattern in turn. The letters show you the order the pattern goes in, like this:

 

πŸ”΄πŸŸ‘πŸ”΄πŸŸ‘πŸ”΄πŸŸ‘   Would be ABAB 

 

πŸ”΄πŸŸ‘πŸŸ’πŸ”΄πŸŸ‘πŸŸ’πŸ”΄πŸŸ‘πŸŸ’ would be ABCABC

 

But patterns can get more complex. Have a look at this:

 

πŸ”΄πŸ”΄πŸŸ‘πŸ”΄πŸ”΄πŸŸ‘πŸ”΄πŸ”΄πŸŸ‘ would be AABAAB

 

πŸ”΄πŸŸ‘πŸŸ’πŸŸ‘πŸ”΄πŸŸ‘πŸŸ’πŸŸ‘ would be ABCBABCB

 

Patterns aren’t always colours either, they could be shapes or things like this:

 

πŸŒˆβ˜€οΈπŸ’§πŸ’§β„οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈπŸŒˆβ˜€οΈπŸ’§πŸ’§β„οΈβ˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ ABCCDBBABCCDBB

Now that was tricky!

 

We look forward to working on your patterns with you in school if you are coming in this week. If you are only doing homeschool don’t forget to share your pattern with us on tapestry.

REMEMBER the asterisked lessons * are the ones that will be taught in school if your child is attending. Please do not repeat these at home if your child is coming to school. There are 5 lessons available online should you want your child to do more than these suggested 3 lessons. You can do the lessons in any order. 

 

*Day 1* Making simple patterns, exploring more complex patterns. (You can print the templates by printing slides 11 and 12. For the pattern they could draw, use stickers, or use different vegetables to print with paint).

 

Day 3: Adding more, taking away, counting to 20 (ten frames or use the interactive links from last week)

 

*Day 5* Doubling, length height and distance. (Extra optional activity is making a milkshake - fruit, milk, ice cream etc. Also need a vegetable to measure with - suggestion is a carrot). 

 

Literacy and Phonics images

LITERACY
School week beginning June 29th 2020.
https://www.talk4writing.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/R-Mouse.pdf

Phonic activities and a Powerpoint are added below. There is no pressure to cover all these activities but if you can support your child to cover some and perhaps use the other resources at a later date.

 

Apologies I realised earlier that at home you have already covered pages 21 and 22. I have amended the pages to be covered below.

This week in school we will cover pages 24 and 25 and then use these pictures to write sentences using simple conjunctions in preparation for Year 1. 

If your child is returning for 2 days you may like to cover pages 23, 26 and 27 at home.

 

At home if your child is a non returner and you are able to, please cover pages 23,24,25,26 and 27 thank you. If time permits please use the words and photographs on page 25 to make up sentences with your child. As an example: I like Pasta it is yellow and feels soft to eat.

Key worker groups please read page 24 to the children and ask them questions to check that the children understand what the bee has been up to. Encourage the children to pretend that they are Mavis and are going to write back to the bee explaining what that they could have been doing. Model a simple letter and encourage the children to give you ideas. Support the children writing some sentences to the bee using some of their ideas. Encourage the children to sound out words using their phonic skills and to use key words using the high frequency word cards. Children may illustrate their work or use construction toys to build a home from Mavis. Please try to count to 20 using counting songs (we use some great ones from YouTube and use a 100 square Splat screen (Primary resources website) to count in 1s, then 10s and 5s. The children love to move about to the songs and to clap too. If you are able to why not chalk some numbers and sounds on the playground floor.

Phonics
Please visit Mr.Thorne’s phonics to support the children to revise the trigraphs air and ure. Please try to teach one sound on one day and then the other sound later that week. Encourage the children to read and write sentences that contain these sounds and to revisit the sounds throughout the day taught and during the week. 
All being well, I will post more resources to support the learning of phonics on Tuesday.

Have a lovely week everyone,

Mrs.W
