Room 2 Work June 22nd-26th

Hello Everybody

I hope you are all keeping well. We have finally reached the end of the school year and I would like thank you for your participation in remote learning. I know learning and working from home has been a huge challenge for you all. I hope your children have a chance to see and play with other children over the summer holidays. I would like to wish you all a nice summer and hopefully you will have some time to relax aswell. I am looking forward to returning to school in September and seeing you all. Hopefully we will be able to operate as close to normality as we can. Here is the last learning plan of the year for this coming week (June 22nd – 26th) and there are some more activities that you can do at home. Please pay particular attention to the SPHE section below to complete the last Stay Safe lesson with your child.

English
Reading:
Read or watch the story On the First Day of Summer Vacation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vADGQCUNIQ

Continue to read whatever school readers you brought home with you and other books you have at home. Your child can then tell the story in order of events. E.g.; first, then, next. Remind your child that every story has a beginning, middle and end.

Here is a link to a story your child can practice reading by themselves. Help them to read the key words and then model how to read it. Remind you child to put their finger under each word as they go. They are A Pet Goldfish and Popcorn https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/interactives/29263.html https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/interactives/29282.html You have to sign up in oxfordowl to use this resource.

Continue to revise all sounds. This week we will be continuing with phonics and looking at two letter sounds that sound the same. We will be learning about oi/oy

Oi/oy: Watch these videos and discuss the words with your child.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdWkgYQnFcw

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hbt0Thvs1GE

Write down some oi and oy words. Have a box with oi and oy on it and your child can sort them into the correct sound. Here are some worksheets you can complete. You can write it on a page if you cannot print it.

Worksheet1: https://www.softschools.com/language_arts/phonics/worksheets/oi_and_oy_sounds_worksheets/oi_and_oy_sounding_letters_matching_worksheet.pdf (page 1)

Worksheet 2: https://www.softschools.com/language_arts/phonics/worksheets/oi_and_oy_sounds_worksheets/oi_and_oy_sounding_letters_matching_worksheet_1.pdf (page 1)

Worksheet 3: https://www.softschools.com/language_arts/phonics/worksheets/oi_and_oy_sounds_worksheets/oi_and_oy_sounding_letters_matching_worksheet_2.pdf (page 1)

Tricky Words: my, one, by, like, have. One word per day and build up.
Word Box 15: thank, rich, shut, ship, think.

This is a link you can use to revise tricky words. https://www.twinkl.ie/resource/t-l-561-tricky-words-on-multicoloured-flowers-1.

You can use this to play games to help with tricky Words.

Game 1: hide the words around the house and when your child finds them, they say what it is if they can. Start with the easier ones.

Game 2: Here is a link to a Bingo game you can play. https://www.twinkl.ie/resource/T-L-030-Phase-4-tricky-word-bingo. You call out the words and your child covers them if they have it

Game 3: You need two sets of Tricky Words and your child can match them. If you can’t print them, perhaps you could write out the words with your child. If you like I can scan another copy to you. Let me know via email. You can also ask your child, ‘can you spot….’ Whatever the word is.

Writing
Your child can tell you their news to put in their news copy. This can be something you did at home or saw while out and about. You write the sentence on a whiteboard or a piece of card and then your child can copy it independently. Remind them to use two frogging legs and a lily pad to steady their pencil and ensue correct letter formation. They can then draw their picture above. If anybody would like to send me a picture of their work via my email, I can correct and give feedback to your child.

You can use storybooks where your child can pick their favourite page and write a simple sentence based on it. Here is another link to pictures and sentences. If you print them, then can cut them in half, turn them upside down and mix them up. You can play pairs with them. https://www.twinkl.ie/resource/t-t-777-phase-2-pictures-and-captions-matching-cards-square-cards

They can also continue with their handwriting book, one page per day.

There are good letter formation videos on https://www.doorwayonline.org.uk/activities/letterformation/ or you can use https://www.youtube.com/results?sp=mAEB&search_query=singing+walrus+letters

If you have skittles at home, line them up outside or else use tin cans or something else you have at home. Your child can use a ball to knock them down.

There are also some nice yoga videos for children online. Follow this link https://www.cosmickids.com/category/watch/

Run a kilometre around your garden or local park

Bring your learning outdoors and find flowers, tress, insects, animals, or if you are at the beach you could go crab fishing, spot some star fish or seaweed.

You can use chalk to draw an obstacle course or hopscotch in your neighbourhood

You could do some water activities such as watering plants, floating and sinking – fill up a basin and see what items float and which do not, make a boat out of paper or sing songs about water.
