Handwriting Practise

Please click on the link below which will take you to a handwriting site we use in school. Please focus on 'continuous cursive beginners' and 'capitals beginners' to practise forming letters correctly.

Friday 24th September - Wednesday 29th September

For homework this week, I would like your child to log onto Busy Things, head towards 'Favourites' and find the game 'Islands - More or fewer?'. Your child can play this game multiple times during the week and it will help to embed our learning from this week in Maths to do with more and less and greater than and fewer than. Children need to become used to the vocabulary used in Maths and this game will help reinforce this.  I will be able to track who has played the game and 1 house point will be rewarded next Wednesday.

 

Please continue to use the flashcards on BusyThings labelled 'L&S sets 2 & 3 recall' to practise the sounds at home. Children need to pronounce the sounds they see and then click on the screen to hear the sound. If it matches they can press the tick and move on and if not they will have to practise pronouncing the sounds correctly before moving on.

 

If you are in the Year 1+ group, I would like children to practise the game 'Action Time' again which can be found in 'Favourites' when logged in. Your child will need to watch carefully and count the actions the man makes. Then they will need to choose the matching number.  I will be able to track who has played the game and 1 house point will be rewarded next Wednesday.

Friday 17th September - Wednesday 22nd September

For homework this week, I would like your child to log onto Busy Things, head towards 'Favourites' and find the game 'Read and Feed'. Your child can play this game multiple times during the week and it encourages segmenting and blending. All children need to practise blending sounds together more confidently. The game will get progressively harder as more words are matched correctly to the pictures. I will be able to track who has played the game and 1 house point will be rewarded next Wednesday.

Friday 10th September - Wednesday 15th September

For homework this week, I would like your child to label parts of the body as we have been looking at this in Science. When you have logged in, click on 'Assignments' and you should see the homework appear. Please let your child complete this as independently as possible and only help them with reading. I will mark homework once the hand in date is over and 1 house point will be awarded for most body parts labelled correctly. 

 

Please also practise verbally asking your child 1 more and 1 less than a given number up to 10 as this needs revisiting. Children can use objects at home to help them if needed. For example, what is 1 more than 5? What is 1 less than 8?

If you are in the Year 1+ group, I would like children to practise the game 'Feed the Monkey' which can be found in 'Favourites' when logged in. Practise giving the monkey a certain number of food items which will help with counting. I will be able to monitor the game being played and 1 house point will be awarded. 

Friday 3rd September - Wednesday 8th September

For homework this week, I would like your child to log into Busy Things using their login information provided on the letter. An adult can help if needed. Once logged in, they need to click on the Year 1 button and they will see 'Favourites'. On this page you should be able to see a range of Maths and English games which I have added. I will change this throughout the year depending on the learning taking place. I would like your child to have a go at accessing these games to refresh the skills. I will be able to monitor games played and 1 house point will be rewarded for login and accessing games.

 

When I set a specific homework, this will be shown in the button called 'Assignments'.

 

If you have any problems please let me know.
