Good Morning Parents, Families & Children.
Let’s start of our morning with a dance.
Time to get moving.
Shared Learning Intention: I can think of a story beginning so I can write my story
What Makes A Good (WMAG) Story: Think about stories that you enjoy. What are the key ingredients? Use your full sentences to explain.
Select the same book from yesterday and re-read the beginning of the story to the child. Ask the child the following questions:
- Where does the beginning come in a story?
- What do you find out at the beginning of the story? (The characters & the setting)
- Who are the characters in the story?
|Explain to the child that today they are going to create their own beginning of a story. Refer to WMAG story and the key ingredients required for the beginning. |
Think about how your story will begin. See the pictures below:
|Child to talk about the beginning of their story. Adult to support child now to write down the beginning of their story.|
Child to read out the beginning of their story.
EXT: What makes a good middle of a story?
Shared Learning Intention: I can use objects so that I am able to share different amounts equally.
Starter: Play game where children are sharing with two groups
Q: what does ‘whole’ mean?
Q: what does sharing mean? ‘sharing’ is when the whole has been shared into equal groups so the amount in each group is the same.
Q: what is the difference between sharing and halving?
Q: what is the different between doubling/halving?
Give the child a piece of paper and tell them to label it ‘whole’
this is where the whole amount they are going to share will be placed.
Adult to model drawing 3 circles ‘plates’ on their paper/board and have counters (objects) ready on another piece of paper (stuck to the board)
Child to do the same. Child to have counters/objects in a pile near their paper/board (not on the ‘whole’)
Model the problem; place 6 counters on the ‘whole paper’ and explain there are 6 apples in my basket so 6 is the whole amount, I need to share these between three people. How can I do this? Model sharing equally by placing one apple in each ‘plate’- ‘one for me’ one for x’ ‘one for y’ then repeat until all ‘apples’ have gone.
Check they have been shared equally by counting the amounts in each circle/plate.
Model sentence: there were 6 counters, I shared them into 3 parts, each part has 2.
Repeat again with 9 ‘apples’- encourage child to support you to share. (put them on the whole amount on the paper)
Child have a go on their own with 3 circles sharing 12 ‘apples’ (remind them to put their whole amount on the paper before sharing into equal groups).
Create What Makes Good (WMG) sharing:
-Look at the whole amount
-Take one objects and place into one part at a time
-Keep sharing one at a time into each part until all objects in the ‘whole’ have gone.
-Count each part to check they have the same amount.
EXT: This time, another friend has joined the party; we have to add another plate, draw 4 plates and place a different amount in the ‘whole section.
REVISIT: Write sounds learnt so far – how many can the child get in 1 minute? Write how many they do on the paper/board, challenge the child to beat their score tomorrow.
INTRODUCE NEW SOUND
Explain that today we are looking at the ‘nd’ consonant blend.
BLEND AND SEGMENT
Read words and challenge child to blend in their heads and then read the word:
hand, find, band, wand, land, kind.
What other ‘nd’ words can the child think of? Adult to list the child’s ideas on the paper/board.
Model how to write the ‘nd’ letters, child practise writing in the air with their fingers and then on their paper/board.
Adult to read the following sentences out and then child to write the sentences on their paper/board.
- I have a bump on my hand.
- Can you find the car?
- She has sand in her socks.
- He was kind to me.
EXT: challenge child to come up with their own sentence containing a word with the ‘nd’ consonant blend. Child to write the sentence independently.
Think about your sentence,
Say your sentence out loud,
Count the words on your fingers,
Write them down beginning your sentence with a capital letter, Finger spaces and a full stop at the end of your sentence.
That is all for today. We would like to hear from you so please do not forget to get in touch either via the blog or email.
Have a lovely weekend!
