I will be delivering a live phonics lesson at 10.30 for all children to attend. Please have a pen and paper ready for the spelling part of the session.
Please also complete daily spellings, handwriting and any extra phonics games from the phonics game tab on cherry remote learning page.
This week's spellings:
Please practice spellings at home for a short time each day.
Today the children are learning about 'doubles'. Allow the children time to explore this and double physical items e.g. multiplying by 2 - if you double 3 spoons you get 6 spoons, if you double 4 pencils you get 8 pencils, anything to help them understand that double means multiplying by 2.
We will be having a handwriting and spellings lesson at 1.00pm. Please make sure your child has a pen and paper ready.
I would love the children to take part in the Big RSPB Bird Watch! I have written the instructions below but essentially it is giving the children an hour (or less as I understand this is a long time) to count (tally) how many birds they see. Please send me any pictures of your child taking part in this big event as it is great to see the children enjoying extra-curricular opportunities.
Pick a time
You can choose any hour between 29 and 31 January. So whether you’re an early bird or a night owl, you can still take part.
Tell us what you see
Count the birds you see in your garden or from your balcony*. Ignore any birds that are still in flight. To avoid double-counting, just record the highest number of each bird species you see at any one time – not a running total.
*This year our advice is to take part in the safety of your own home. This could include a birdwatch from your window if you overlook a green space or courtyard.
Submit your results
Online: You can submit your results online at rspb.org.uk/birdwatch from 29 January until 19 February.
By post: If you’d rather send your results by post, you can download a submission form below. Please post your results to us before 15 February.
Every count is important so, if you don’t see anything, please still submit your result. Finding out which birds don’t visit your area is as important as understanding those which do!
