Welcome back to our school posts. We hope you have all been enjoying the lovely weather and staying safe.
As we prepare to teach some of you again in school, we are changing the way we post our home learning,
Every 2 weeks we will upload groups of tasks that can be used and practised. Please dip into these at your own pace and please reuse any resources that you have made during our time together eg. board games or tricky word games.
We all need to repeat and practise things we don’t know yet…regardless of how young or old we are…
We have put some stories and songs to listen to each day…please have some fun with these!
Our children also know a lovely singer called Emily Arrow. She likes to use books to inspire her songs. Today she is singing about The Hug Machine!
Time to recap on phonics
Please keep looking at the sounds that groups of letters make – if your child needs to. Please use this video again if it helps.
Can your child say the sound that represents each letter?
When you say a sound can they write each of the letters that represent that sound?
Can you find them on the balloons?
You can find this game

This week we are learning about doubling!
In this context it means twice the amount/ quantity.
What will happen to the size of the set? It will get bigger.
Listen and join in with this doubles rap!
Practical exploration of doubles.
Doubling ladybirds! Explain that the amount of spots on each side needs to be the same.
Your child could draw their own ladybird.
Use raisins or cheerios or even chocolate buttons as the spots. Place the same amount on each wing. Say the double and find out the answer by counting them all/ counting on from the first wing.
Write the equations. Double 1. 1+1=2 Double 2. 2+2=4 Double 3. 3+3=6
Can you see a pattern? In order it’s counting in twos!
Emily Arrows aong…enjoy and please try and join in too!
Play this fun phonics game -please practise the sounds that your child needs

Make your own double dominoes!
Double 5 is 10.
Be as creative as you like.
Cut out rectangles, or make giant paper dominoes. Draw a line down the middle and draw an amount of dots on one side and the same on the other. (You could use stickers, paper shapes or pompoms if you have them!)
Then work out and say the double, like above!
Write the doubles using an equation: 5+5=10
