Joe Wicks children’s workout on youtube (The Body Coach) or choose an activity from the ‘Stay Active’ folder.
Question of the day: Will a cow go to town with you?
Write the question on a piece of paper and add sound buttons. Can you use the sound buttons to help you read the question? Circle the tricky words in the question.
Quick flashcards game: Time 1 minute on a phone/timer then show children a Phase 3 sound flashcard and child to say the sound aloud as quickly as they can. How many sounds can you say correctly in a minute? You might like to record the amount of flashcards you read in a minute. Can you try again and be even quicker this time?
Play Phoneme Frame: Draw a small phoneme frame with three boxes like the example below.
Read aloud a word and ask your child to create it in the phoneme frame by writing each letter in a box. If it is a digraph it needs to go in one box as the two letters make one sound.
Words: fish, goat, book, chip, rain, zoom, ship, horn, need, down.
If your child struggles with letter formation, use the alphabet sound sheet that we sent home to help.
Challenge: Can you write some more words in the phoneme frame? Can you use our recent digraphs?
Recap the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. What characters are in the story? What happened at the start of the story? What happened next? What was the problem? How was it resolved? What happened at the end?
Today we are going to create a story map. A story map is a visual reminder of the story and can be used to retell the story. You can draw pictures or if you prefer you can cut and stick the characters/events in the story (see Literacy folder).Then re-tell the story to a sibling/adult using your story map to help you.
See my example below…
Challenge: To include words/phrases from the story on your story map e.g. “huff and puff”
Today’s art task is linked to our learning about ‘The Three Little Pigs’.
Who was your favourite character?
What part of the story did you like best?
Using junk modelling materials, egg boxes, paper plates, paint/felt tips choose to make one of the characters from the story or one/all of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ houses. Be as creative as you can!
For your snack today, you might like to make a healthy piggy snack. You could do this by putting some cream cheese/yoghurt on top of a rice cake or bagel then add fruit for the ears, eyes and mouth.
Whilst eating your snack, you may enjoy watching this video of ‘The True Story of The Three Little Pigs’ read by the author Jon Scieszka: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Q01X8JU3GU
