The Big List of Children’s Authors Doing Online Read Alouds & Activities
Week 2 (wk/c: 30th March)
Can you count in 2s and 5s up to 50? You could try exercising while counting like in this video from Maths 4 Kids (Youtube)
You might like to try counting pairs of shoes or socks or maybe you could put your toys into groups of 5 to count.
How many pairs can you make with 20 socks? If there are 45 toys, how many groups of 5 will we have?
Can you make up some of your own problems to solve?
Read your reading books and the books on Bug Club. You could also have a look at the games on Phonics Play (https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/)
Have a go at Picnic on Pluto (the Obb and Bob game that we play at school) or Sentence Substitution (we have also played this in class). Select phase 4 and 5 when required. Please find a reminder of these graphemes on the sound mats below.
Continue sharing library books and your books at home. There are also many websites which are offering free online books (see below for details). Choose a character from one of your books and write a description of them. What do they look like? How do they act? Are they brave, kind or scary? Remember to write in sentences with full stops, capital letters and finger spaces. You could also use the conjunctions and, but, or, because to make your sentences longer.
Listen to the story of Palm Sunday when Jesus and his followers arrived in Jerusalem. Crowds of people came out of the city to greet him, throwing down palm branches on the road. You might read this in a bible or look at the Powerpoint below. Alternatively there is an animated version on the BBC Bitesize page (https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zy2hyrd).
How do you think the people felt?
Can you retell the story? You could act it out, write it down or draw a picture. You might also want to have a go at making a palm leaf.
Topic – Spring
When I look out of my window, I am starting to notice many signs of Spring. How many of these can you spot? Maybe you can see different flowers starting to grow, the trees getting greener, more wildlife or lighter evenings. You could draw a picture of what you notice, take a photograph or even keep a diary of the changes.
