Here is today’s Learning at Home. Remember, to try your best! We believe in you! #BoundaryBelieves

Read the Oxford Reading Owl e- book Peg It Up. 

Using the story map on page 12, ask your child to retell the story in their own words. What happened at the beginning? What happened next? etc.

• Which part of the story did they like the most?

Talk with your child about the book. Here are some questions you could ask:

• How do you think Tiger felt when he was stuck in the pocket on the washing line?

• How was Max being brave when he came to Tiger’s rescue?

• What did you think was funny about the story?

Encourage your child to read the story again. This will build their reading confidence and reading fluency.

Next, practice your hand writing using your hand writing sheet. Write out all the letters from A-Z. Don’t forget to hold your pencil between your thumb and your two fingers and form your letters correctly. What sound does each letter make? Say the rhyme as you write them “around the apple and down the leaf” etc.

Then listen to the Tricky Word Songs. Click here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvMyssfAUx0 Phase 2 tricky words. Click here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R087lYrRpgY Phase 3 tricky words. Now, write out your tricky words using your tricky word list. Remember how to hold your pencil and form your letters correctly.

Order your number cards from 1-20 in a line. Can you recognise the numbers? Point to one of them. Tell an adult what number it is. Are you correct? Can you point to a number on your number line that is 1 less than a given number? How do you know?
