Week 6 - 27/4/20

1/5/20 Mrs Jones Maths - part/part/whole

Join Mrs Jones (and phonics Fred) as she explores using a part/part/whole model to find parts of a whole number.

You can join in too by drawing your own part/part/whole and using different objects in you house to count. Try using small objects like; Lego bricks, dried pasta, buttons etc - you might use Cheerios and get to eat them afterwards too!

Start with the big number in the whole, then split it into two parts below. What two numbers made up the whole? Explore that number in as many different ways as you can. Do you notice anything about some numbers? What about if the numbers are swapped over? Does it still make the same whole number at the top?

I can see ... 'w' phoneme hunt

Today’s phoneme is ‘w’.

Can you spot all the objects in the video and name them? Ask a grownup to help if you’re not too sure.

Try segmenting these words and writing them in a list or you could make up some silly sentences too. Good luck everyone.

30/4/20 Mrs Lamb - pobble365

Mrs Lamb is writing about this picture from

What can you see in the picture? What do you think he is looking at or looking for? What might the man in the background be saying?

Watch as Mrs Lamb writes her sentence, and then try writing your own sentence about the picture using your phonics and key words to help you.

Don't forget to share your sentence with us after you're done.

30/4/20 Mr Hughes - vowel digraphs /ee/

Mr Hughes is looking at the vowel digraph /ee/ today, like in the word ‘leek’.

There are lots of other ways to write the /ee/ phoneme in words, but children will just learn this way for now in phase 3. We would expect the word ‘funny’ to be written similar to this ‘funee’ by children after learning this digraph.

Good luck everyone. We hope you enjoy this session. Don’t forget to pause when Mr Hughes raises his hand so that you can have a go yourself.

30/4/20 Mrs Hall phonics - phase 4

Join Mrs Hall as she works her way through phase 4. She is continuing to look at consonant blends at the end of words.
See how many of the words you can read and try to beat Mrs Hall. Have a go at writing some of the words too.

29/4/20 Mrs Lamb - pobble365

Mrs Lamb is using the picture from February 2nd on

Have a look at the picture and talk about it with a grownup. Think about what you can see, where it is and who might live there. Construct your own sentence, try segmenting any new words and use your keyword sheet we sent out to help with words you already know.

Good luck with your sentences. 🙋🏼‍♂️

29/4/20 Pirate Day activities

Arghhhhh!! We thought that because White Rose Maths have launched pirate week activities:

…we could have a go at some pirate activities of our own.
Here are some suggestions to try at home, but I bet you can think of some more.
1. Make a pirate treasure map and then give instructions on how to find the treasure.
2. Make some salt dough and make your own treasure - gold coins and doubloons, goblets and crowns.
3. Build a pirate ship. You might use Lego or you could use some old boxes and bottles from your recycling box.
4. Try some floating and sinking experiments. Do it in the sink or a bowl or a bucket. You might do it in the bath when you have you bath. Look around your house for different objects that you can put in the water to test. What do you notice about the different things that float and those that sink? We’re you surprised by any that sank? Or some that floated?

If you do any more activities don’t forget to share them with us. Good luck everyone. ⚓️🏴‍☠️⚓️🏴‍☠️⚓️

29/4/20 Mrs Jones Maths - Part Part Whole #1

Mrs Jones wants to help us all with our maths. Why not join in and learn about part/part/whole to help you with finding the total in a group.

You can use anything that you have in your house to help you - pasta, lego bricks, cars, cutlery, frozen peas or smarties.

Have a go at drawing your own part/part/whole model just like Mrs Jones and find the total of objects. Don't forget to let us know how you get on.

29/4/20 I Can See ... v phoneme hunt

Can you name all the objects I’ve placed inside today?
Try to name them all but ask a grownup if you’re not sure. Then try to segment each object, listening for the sounds in each word and write them in a list or start to make some silly sentences.

28/4/20 Mrs Hall phonics - phase 4

Join Mrs Hall as he introduces you to phase 4, there will be no new phonemes to learn but you will be learning how to join two consonants to make consonant clusters or blends. You might find them at the beginning or end of words.
Some example of these are: //nk, //mp, //nd at the end of words and st//, tr//, br// at the beginning of words.
REMEMBER to pause the video sometimes so that you can practise at home, then restart from where you paused it and continue with Mrs Hall.

Miss Hawthorne - WRM pirate patterns

Miss Hawthorne is using the resources from There are daily videos and activities all based upon stories. This week it’s pirates. Mr Hughes read one of the stories last week: Watch on #Periscope: The Night Pirates #mrhughesbedtimestory

Have a go at making your own pirate telescope and decorate it with a pattern. You might try a simple ABABAB pattern, or you could be adventurous and try ABBABBABB, or ABCCABCCABCC.

Don’t forget to share you finished telescopes and other pirate adventures. Stay safe and see you soon.

Phonics with Mr Hughes - vowel digraphs /ai/

Join Mr Hughes as he does his first phonics lesson.
We are starting in the middle of phase 3, and will be learning vowel digraphs (vowel sounds/phonemes made with 2 or 3 letters).
Today we will learn the /ai/ digraph, as in the word ‘rain’. Children will only learn one digraph in F2, and so we do expect to children to be using this for all words with /ai/ in them. They will learn other ways to write this sound next year in year one. We would expect to see children write ‘maik’ for the word ‘make’ and ‘plai’ for the word ‘play’.

28/4/20 Mrs Lamb - pobble365

What an unusual picture today! Mrs Lamb is using with the picture from May 1st. Have a look at the picture and talk about it with a grownup.
What can you see? What is it doing? Why is it doing that? How does it make you feel?
Construct a sentence and count the words. Think about the key words in your sentence and try to find them on your keyword sheet. Have a go at segmenting the words that are new and then try writing your sentence. Don’t forget to use a capital letter, finger spaces and finish it with a full stop. Good luck everyone.

28/4/20 I can see ... 'j' phoneme hunt

Today we are looking for objects in my garden that start with the phoneme ‘j’. Not many things start with ‘j’ but there are some here in the garden. Try to name them, ask a grownup if you’re not sure. Then listen carefully for the sounds in each word. Write these sounds down as you hear them and you should have the word then. Put them in a list or into some silly sentences.

27/4/20 Mrs Lamb - pobble365

This image is from for April 29th.
Watch Mrs Lamb as she models how to write her sentence; remember your finger spaces, full stops and capita letter. Have a go at segmenting the words that you need in your sentence and don’t forget to use the key words that you know and are on your sheet.

27/4/20 I can see ... ff ll ss phoneme hunt

These are double digraphs, when two of the same digraph go together to make one phoneme. They usually go at the end of words (but sometimes you might find them in the middle of a word too).
Can you spot the different objects in my garden and name them? Ask a grownup if you’re not sure. Then try segmenting each object and have a go at writing them in a list or sentence using the phonics that you have learnt at school.
