This week Mrs Sessions has been listening to different nursery rhymes on the BBC website - https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/nursery-rhymes-a-to-h-index/z4ddgwx
Her Son's favourite is 5 Little Monkeys Swinging in a Tree. They listened to the song and then made the monkeys and 2 crocodiles to perfrom the song. Can you listen to your favourite song and make some of the characters to help you perform the song? We would love to see anything you make. Perhaps you could record yourself singing and send us a copy?

Friday 1st May
Practise your sounds – can you say them all?
Watch Alphablocks ‘ink’
Look at the worksheet below . Can you write each word? Use your robot arms to say the sounds then your sound mat if you need it. (Adults please let your child try for themselves – it doesn’t matter if it isn’t quite correct.)
Look at the worksheet. What can you see? Can you write a sentence about the picture?
(eg. I wash my hands in the sink.) Ask your child to use their sounds and tricky words – try not to tell them what to write and let them use their own ideas!
Today will continue to practise subtracting numbers with some short and fun activities.
Watch this song to warm your brain up.
Play this game:
We hope you have a good weekend :)

On Tuesday we listened to a story about a dinosaur. Click on this link to watch some videos about the different dinosaurs that roamed our land millions of years ago.
Activity: Watch one of the videos to learn about one of the types of dinosaurs. Now draw a picture of the dinosaur. Can you use your sounds to label your drawing of your dinosaur See my example in the images.
Challenge: Can you write a sentence to describe the dinosaur. For example The dinosaur is tall. Try and use your sounds. Don’t worry if your spelling isn’t correct.
Today will continue to practise subtracting numbers. This time we will take bigger numbers away.
Watch this Number blocks episode.
Now complete this worksheet.
If you want, you can use the number line from yesterday. Find the number of dinosaurs in each question and jump one to the left to take 1 away.

Adults – write these words on pieces of paper. (See photos)
Ask your child to read each one using their robot arms. Can you find the object in your home – stick the word to the object or put the object with the word. If you don’t have the objects you could draw a picture to match. Take some photos and send them to us!
Print or write out the sentence starts. (See sheet) Put it next to one of the objects – ask your child to read the sentence. Does it make sense? What if you use a different sentence? Do any make silly sentences? Can you send us a video of your child reading the sentences?
Today we are practising using number lines to find out what ‘1 less’ is.
Watch this video
For this activity you will need:
- A number line (see picture below)
- The spin the bottle game we played last term [See image gallery below) OR a dice.
Spin the bottle or roll your dice to select a number. Now find the number on the number line. Slide to the left to find ‘1 less’!
Can you play the game again without using the number line? How fast can you say what number is 1 less than the number your bottle pointed at?
This week we are going to explore a new story. The story is called: If I had a Dinosaur.
Watch the story by following this link.
In the story the little girl wanted a really big pet. Can you remember the pet that she wanted?
Activity: Draw a picture of the pet that she wanted. You can use the pictures in the story to help you.
Now think about which pet you would like. Imagine any animal could be your pet. Which pet would you choose? Can you draw a picture of your pet? If you have colours then colour your picture in.
Challenge: Can you write a sentence to describe your pet?
Extra challenge: Can you write or draw a story about the adventure that your new pet might have?

Practise those tricky words! Sing along to the song and find the sounds on your tricky word mat.
