Nyewood CE Infant School

Smiling, Caring and Learning Together on a Journey with God

Monday 23rd March

Welcome to your first day of home learning. We hope you enjoy the activities set, but please remember that playing with your toys, helping out at home and chatting to others are also important activities.

READING

In reading this week we will be focussing on the super six skill of Questioning. To help us answer questions, we need to get to know the story. Choose a fiction book from your book bag, folder or house and read it to your adult. Now retell it to your adult, brother/sister, cat or dog!

 

WRITING

At the moment in Writing we will be focusing on writing letters. Last week we explored a range of letters and looked at their features. One of the skills we are practising to be able to write our letters is using different joining words to join two sentences together. Here are some challenges for you to practise this. Start at the blue challenge and then if you feel able to, challenge yourself with the yellow or the red!

Blue- Can you join two sentences using the word ‘and’? e.g. I have a blue coat and I have a red hat.

Yellow- Can you join two sentences using the words ‘because’ and ‘or’? e.g. I am going on holiday because I need a break.

Red- Can you join two sentences using the words ‘if’, ‘when’ and ‘so’? e.g. I will need to write to you again if I have changed my plans.

MATHEMATICS

In mathematics today, we would like you to play the game below to practice making numbers using tens and ones. The activities below are at three levels, pick the level that you think is best for you.
