We would not expect your child to complete all these activities. Please choose any that may interest your child.
White Rose Maths have a list of daily suggested activities related to the topic 'Superworm.' It is for Reception children however, there may be some activities suitable or you could slightly change for your child's ability.
To use the language ‘more’ and ‘fewer’ to compare two sets of objects.
Try some of the activities suggested below.
Please use this week to practise the letter sounds we have learnt so far and try some of the activities you may not have done yet.
Ruth Miskin runs a daily YouTube channel to help teach children the letter sounds. On Wednesday 20th May she will restart teaching the set 1 sounds (from the letter sound ‘m’.) This is the ideal day to start watching! The videos are 10-15 minutes long and are on YouTube from 9:30am. You can watch the video at any time after 9:30am but they are only available for 24 hours.
At 9:45am there is a YouTube video called ‘wordtime.’ This teaches children how to read simple words.
At 10:00am there is a YouTube video called ‘spelling.’ This teaches children how to write simple words.
All the YouTube videos teach the children how to recognise sounds, read words and write words in a similar way to how we would teach this to your child in nursery. It systematically teaches children the skills they need to learn but does not replace the active and fun activities that we have previously suggested to reinforce their learning.
These videos will continue next week during half term except on bank holiday Monday. Towards the end of the week, they will start to teach the letter sounds 'i' and 'n' which we will look at after half term.

Reminder - Activities to support reading simple words
If your child can hear initial, middle and final sounds in words then they are ready to start reading simple words. (They will also need to know the first 5 letter sounds – m, a, s, d, t.)
You can use the free e-books available on oxford owl for your child to read to you. Remember to encourage your child to use the pictures so they can tell you the story.
