Hello everyone, hope you are all safe and well.  Here is some learning to keep you busy at home!

Topic – There’s no place like home – Little Red Riding Hood

Literacy – Name writing

Please can you practice writing your name.  Make sure you have a capital letter at the beginning and try and get your letters to sit on the line.  If you can write your first name, why not try writing your second name too.

These are:

m, a ,s ,t ,d ,i ,n ,p ,g ,o ,c , k, u, b, f, e, l, h, sh, r

Can you practice saying the sounds? Can you practice reading the sounds? Can you practice writing the sounds? Grown-ups, you might like to make your child some flash cards to do super speedy sounds. Here is an example:

Flash the sound cards to your child and see if they can read it to you speedily. Once you have done this you might like to hide the flash cards around your home or garden and go on a sound hunt.  How many sounds can you find? Can you read them and can you write them?   

Sound blending (Orally)

Using the letter sounds we have learned so far can we blend the sounds together to say the word? Remind your child that Fred can only talk in sounds. Fred talk the word c-o-t. Can your child blend the sounds together and say the word cot? Repeat this step with some different words such as kit, mud, cup, fan, fun, log, leg, cat, hat, shop, yes, web, win, wish, zag, zip, chin.    Please watch the video clip below to help your child with their     ‘Fred Talk’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEzfpod5w_Q

Discuss the story with your grown up.  What was your favourite part? Why? What was your grown-ups favourite part? What did Red Riding Hood have in her basket? Where was she taking it? Where did her Granny live? What happened on the way? What happened when she got to granny’s? Were you worried?

MathsCounting

Writing your numbers

https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-n-4818-number-formation-tracing-strips-0-20

We are continuing with 1 more than this week. Ask your grown up to say a number up to 5, 10, 0r 20 then see if you can say what 1 more than that number is.

Why don’t you collect food items like what was in Little Red Riding Hoods basket. Count them as you add them to a bag or basket then say what 1 more item would be. Put that item in then check by counting to see if you were correct.

Creative

Can you use your creative skills to make characters from the story? Which character will you make? Which is your favourite? Use the word map below to help you label your character.
