Welcome to Woodville School

Summer week 9 w/b 22nd June

Reception Letter week 9

 

Hello children πŸ‘‹πŸ»

 

We have been really impressed with your riddles that you have written this week in literacy. Riddles are tricky to work out πŸ€” and even trickier to write but you all did so well. Everyone also worked hard on adding and subtracting with Zog too; you could all use your ten frames really wellπŸ‘πŸ». 

 

It has been so so hot! πŸ₯΅β˜€οΈ Mrs Adams had trouble finding worms for her wormery project this week. She thinks it’s because it’s so hot they’ve all dug down deep in the ground where it is cooler. You’ve all done a great job making your wormery together at school too. 

 

Thinking about our minibeasts, some of you showed us on tapestry that you had caterpillars πŸ› at home and looked after them until you released them as butterflies. Thank you for sharing their life cycle journey with us, it was great to watch.

 

There are lots of butterflies around right now, you can find them in all sorts of places but especially in meadows. They are all so different, just like us. Mrs Guesdon has seen some common blues, a large white and a painted lady in her garden. Have you seen any butterflies? πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹πŸ¦‹

 

We hope you enjoy your weekend,

Stay safe, stay amazingβ˜€οΈ

Understanding the World - Making a wormery!
 

Hello boys and girls, 

Following on from looking at mini beasts, this week we are going to make our own wormery!
We made large ones in school, which the children all helped to make, including putting in the worms! 
At home I made a wormery with my little girl, we weren’t as successful at finding worms, they dig very deep tunnels in the heat to stay cool. Perhaps once it gets cooler we will be able to add some more. We did find some however underneath flower pots, and in school we found lots inside an old tyre. I wonder where you will find your worms?

Have fun making your wormery, I can’t wait to see what they look like!

Mrs Adams

Wellbeing Wednesday 

 

Hello children πŸ‘‹πŸ»

 

There has been good news this week that things are getting better πŸ™‚.  We cannot go back to the way things were just yet but there have been lots of changes to the rules to make life a little easier for us. This will help things to feel a bit more normal, but because it has been a long time since we have done some of these things, it might make us feel a bit worried πŸ₯Ί about doing them again. Even grown ups can be worried about this too. 

 

Get your talking toy πŸ§Έ ready and talk with your family. Ask yourself 

πŸ”ΉWhat am I worrying about?

πŸ”ΉIs there anything I can do to make the worry go away?

 

βœ”οΈIf the answer is YES: Make a plan. Do it. Let go of the worry.

 

❌If it is NO: Let go of the worry you cannot control.

 

Now that can be tricky if you don’t know how. But Dr. Bubble uses his superpower to help and you can use it too. You will need a pot of bubbles to take outside. Think of the worry in your mind and blow your bubble πŸŒ¬ at the same time to trap it inside. Now watch as it floats away from you. You have let that worry go. You can also trap a bad feeling inside the bubbles too then give them a pop.

 

Remember, you don’t have to hold onto worries or bad feelings. You can choose to let them go πŸ˜Œ.

Maths 

 

Hello children πŸ‘‹πŸ»

 

This week’s maths is based on Zog  - I am sure lots of you know this story. You are going to be practicing using your ten frames again for adding and for taking away too.

 

Let’s look at how we can use them for taking away this week. 

 

9-2=?

 

First I’m going to put 9 into my ten frame like this
 

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

 

 

Now I need to take two away. So I’m going to show you which two in another colour so you can see.

 

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

🟒

🟒

 

 

Now I’m going to remove those counters and see what I am left with.

 

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

πŸ”΅

 

 

 

 

Now I can count how many are left - there are 7. 

Or I can remember that one whole row is 5 and hold that in my head and count on the last two like this “5....6....7”

 

So 9-2=7 

 

I hope you enjoy Zog’s maths - don’t forget to share what you do with us here on tapestry.

 

Mrs Guesdon πŸŒˆ

Dear Parents

This week you can extend your child with Day 2 (which recaps adding and ten frames) if they are secure already with doing this independently without help. If they can’t please do not worry, continue to follow the white rose lesson as it is.

 

To extend it can be tempting to just try giving them larger numbers beyond 20 but they need to develop a greater depth of understanding. I suggest that once they have done a few of the addition questions set by white rose, you challenge them to work out some missing number additions (Using numbers 1-10 first then progressing to 1-20)

e.g. 4+?= 7       ?+5=12

 

Encourage them to think about how they could use the ten frame to work out the missing number. See if they can work it out first before explaining or showing them. Let us know how you get on if you try the extension.

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 2* - adding more. (ten frame, counters or use either of these links for an interactive version - we have used both in school http://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/tenFrame/index.html  OR    https://www.coolmath4kids.com/manipulatives/ten-frame 

*Day 3* - taking away, counting to 20. (ten frame, counters or use above link)

Day 5 - time and weight. (If you want to make the gingerbread recipe you will need 350g plain flour, 1tsp bicarbonate of soda, 2tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 125g butter, 175g light soft brown sugar, 1 egg, 4 tbsp golden syrup, writing icing or decorations in colours that doctors/nurses/paramedics wear)

 

 

 

Literacy notes, links and additional phonic resources - 22.06.2020

Literacy and phonics for week bg 22.06.2020

 

Please see below the teaching notes, the Talk4writing link and some additional resources for supporting the teaching of phonics this week.

 

https://www.talk4writing.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/R-Mouse.pdf

 

At school we will cover Talk for Writing Pages 19, 20,21 and 22. This is reading, understanding, solving and writing riddles. It is also looking at parts of plants.

If your child is learning from home, please try to cover pages 19,20,21,22,23,24 and 25. This isn’t as much work as it sounds. If you are short of time please focus on pages 19,20,21 and 22 thank you. This is reading, solving and writing riddles, looking at parts of plants and then sharing information from a letter to enable your child to improve their understanding of language that describes texture. The child then writes labels to match the pictures.

 

Keyworker Children Group EYFS 
Please try to write 2 or 3 news sentences using EYFS prompt cards (Mrs Adams can help you access these writing prompt cards, please colour photocopy them for future use if you haven’t got a set) ideally children need a set each. Please encourage the child to write independently using their sounding out skills and to use finger spaces. They may illustrate their work too at the end. 

Carry out phonics daily and then the Talk for Writing Pages 24 and 25. This involves sharing a letter that contains information with the children and then the child discussing then labelling using words to better understand texture and how items in pictures feel. This will develop their skills in understanding language, how we can describe and of course their sounding out and writing skills. 

Phonics focus oi and ear 

Please find below some teaching notes and some workbooks for each sound, there are also 2 Powerpoints, a reading and picture reveal worksheet (oi) and a further word writing worksheet for the ear trigraph too.

This week’s phonemes (sounds) are the vowel digraph oi and trigraph ear (we mention that ear has two ways of being said but in this lesson we only teach ear as in the words ear, rear, fear and hear. So please make that pronunciation the focus, thank you.

Suggested words might be
oi - oil, boil, coin, soil, spoil, joint and noise.

ear - ear, fear, hear, near, spear, year and beard.

Sentences could be but by all means use your own or their ideas.

Can you hear that I am near to you?

I can see a man with a beard and he has a spear.

Is that noise the kettle boiling? 

How old will you be this year?

Look in the soil what is that near to the tree?

The children may well tell you lots of even better uses for the sounds.

WELLBEING WEDNESDAY 
Dr. Bubble - let go of your worries. (Bubble mixture and bubble wand)


UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD 
This week we will be making a wormery! 

You will need:
- a clear plastic large box
- soil
- sand
- old dead leaves
- vegetable peelings, overripe fruit, tea leaves
- two or three earthworms eager for a holiday
- cling film
- a large elastic band
- black or dark card

This seems like a lot of resources but many of them can be the best nearest option you have at home - those eager earthworms aren’t overly fussy!
