Play Obb and Bob using all the Phase 5 sounds. Children need to say the words and decide to feed them to Bob if they are a ‘real’ word and feed them to Obb if they are ‘fake’ or ‘nonsense’ words.

 

Maths:

Have a go at one of the Practical activities on the Maths page on our school website. https://www.hornseaprimaryschool.net/practical-maths/

There are a range of activities including some fun baking recipes and building challenges!

 

Physical:

See if you can join in the lava zone! Follow the instructions on the video to make an exciting obstacle course in your home or garden. Just remember to make sure you’re in a safe place before you start and ask a grown up to help you set up your course, so you don’t step on anything you’re not supposed to!

Have a go at warming up your voices using ChoonBaboon:

Once you’ve warmed up your voice, see if you create your own warm up using silly phrases – can you add clapping like we did in lesson?

Or you could even create your own song using things you can see around you!

 

We hope you have a wonderful day! From Mrs Beaumont, Mrs Midgley and Mrs Burton.

DAY 2:

 

 

Hello Year 2! Here are your next set of challenges. Please remember to check out the school website for other activities and helpful links!

  • Vegetables
  • Colours
  • Things that use electricity
  • Things that fly
  • Sports
  • Farm animals

Phonics:

Focus on the sound ‘ay’ (as in ‘play’) How many words of one syllable can you think of? How many of two syllables? Can you think of any words with 3 or more syllables?

Maths:

Can you write the fact families for these groups of numbers? Remember a fact family is 4 calculations which all use the same 3 numbers. For example;

12 – 9 = 3

12 – 3 = 9

 

  1. 2, 5, 7

What is kindness? Are there different types of kindness? Can you be kind with your words? Can you be kind with your actions? Is it sometimes difficult to be kind? How do you feel when you have been kind? Can you explain it to someone in your house? Could you draw a picture to show what kindness is?

 

 

We hope you have a wonderful day! From Mrs Beaumont, Mrs Midgley and Mrs Burton.
