Phonics

Watch the PowerPoint that I put on and practise all the sounds. Continue to use the set 2 stretchy sounds booklet. This week we are concentrating only on the ee sound. In the booklet work through page 8.

Literacy

In all stories there is always a problem. In this week’s story Norman being a slug wanted to play with the snails because they were having so much fun. However, they would not let him join in because he didn’t have a shell. How was the problem sorted out?

Maths

Today we are using and naming 2d shapes. Again there are a number of different activities on your sheet. Very simple tasks that you can talk about and let me know how good you are with your 2d shapes.

Watch the story of the Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson. This is 25 minutes long so you could watch it at break or lunchtime.

Consider special things to keep in a ‘snail shell’: Look at a picture of a snail.

Explain that a snail carries its home on its back – and whenever it wants to, it can retreat inside its shell to keep warm or to protect itself. Make the link between the snail’s home and the children’s homes, where they can stay warm and protected. Give each child a large piece of paper and some coloured pencils. Explain that they are going to pretend that, for just one day, they can carry their home on their backs, just like a snail. Invite the children to draw all the special things from home that they would like to carry and keep with them, in their shell.
