Good morning everyone,
I hope you all had a lovely weekend, how beautiful was the sunshine! This is our last week of remote learning, this time next week we will be back in school together. But for now, below is all the new learning and lessons for today, I hope you enjoy them.
The new story for this week on Purple Mash is called ‘Anna and the Third Leaf’. Please read chapter 1 and complete the quiz after. Feel free to read this chapter to your child and then encourage them to complete the activity as independently as possible.
Every morning we will be uploading 3 short video clips for the children to watch and engage with for phonics. These videos will include: recapping and practice of previously taught sounds, teaching and focus on a new sound, and then some focus on writing the sound out within words / sentences. Please find the links to these clips below. The children will need a whiteboard or pen and paper to engage fully with these lessons.
Today's focus sound is 'ur' - nurse with a purse. Click on the links and join Mrs Brown for our phonics lesson today. We are recapping this sound that we did a few weeks ago.
Video 1: recap of sounds & introduction of the sound - https://youtu.be/58StjmgqE2k
Video 2: reading words with the sound-https://youtu.be/_Y8nBPhLJxA
Video 3: writing words with the sound- https://youtu.be/W22At0w9YHM
If your child is finding the set three sounds a little tricky, please go back to set two and recap these. Repetition is the key so start back at 'ay - May I play?' Link is below or under the Phonic star on previous page.

We are continuing with our maths topic 'Length and Height'. For today's maths lesson, the White Rose video introduces the children to the idea of using a ruler. Please watch the video and then complete the practical activity that is explained at the end of the video. For the practical activity, the children will need to use a ruler (with centimetres). If you do not have a ruler at home, I have uploaded a PDF sheet with a cut out ruler. Please follow the instructions given on the sheet in order to accurately print out this ruler.
Good luck everyone. I hope you all have a nice day.
Miss Impey :)
