Please use this link to access the phonics lessons for your child. There are several parts for each year group, all of which we would like the children to complete. These are best done daily, but we understand if you do these at a time in that day that is appropriate for you and your child.

Learning Objective: To explore the layout of an Explanation Text
Today's lesson we are going to be focusing on screens 2 and 3 again.
We are focusing on the idea of Explanation Text's today and how we need to set out the information clearly so that it is easy to follow.
Explanation text is a piece of non-fiction writing explaining an action process or event in a detailed but simple way.
It features numbered points, time connectives, pictures, diagrams, labels and captions to help the receiver understand the process of what’s being delivered.
When writing an explanation text, treat your reader as if they don't know anything.
Order the features listed below in the order your would put them in your explanation text.
heading, photo, caption, opening sentence, diagram and flow chart
Then explain why we use them and what it tells the reader.
E.g. The heading tells the reader what the text is going to be about.
Each week we spend approximately an hour working through our mental maths skills, eg rapid recall of bonds and fact families, as well as reviewing some of the less visited areas of Maths - Shape, Area, Factors and Estimation (SAFE). If your child is on SAFE Maths we will have emailed you the sheets via Purple Mash. However, the following links are all excellent at reviewing those skills we all need to become fluent, confident mathematicians.
Click here for Subitising skills for Reception, these are really useful for seeing an amount without counting.
Daily 10 : skills for Year 1 and 2 to practice.
Hit the Button has short sharp doubles and bonds practice for Rec to Y2.
Thinking Blocks - focus on the addition and multiplication for now, all of these look at problem solving skills.
Purple Mash also has several quizzes and games allocated too which focus on counting in 2s,5s 10s etc. Don't forget the Maths homework is also set here for your child to complete each week.
RE: Why does Easter Matter to Christians?
LO: I can recognise that Incarnation and Salvation are part of a ‘big story’ of the Bible.
Ask pupils why they think Easter is important to Christians. Collect their responses at this stage.
• Explain that Easter is a festival that occurs in spring to remember a very important part of the Bible. Remind pupils that Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas. Christians believe that Jesus is God come to Earth. The life of Jesus and many things he said and did are found in the Gospels in the Bible. The Easter story is one of sadness, followed by great happiness.
• Set up an Easter labyrinth. Essential parts of the story to be
included in the labyrinth for Year 1& 2 are: 1) The entry into Jerusalem (have palm leaves to touch and wave);
2) Jesus’ betrayal and arrest at the Mount of Olives (bread to share and chains for arrest);
3) Jesus’ crucifixion; (vinegar to smell)
4) The empty tomb; (an image of an echoing cave)
5) Jesus’ appearance to Mary Magdalene and the disciples.
• At each stop on the labyrinth, pupils should hear part of the story and have a chance to discuss and reflect on it, expressing their thoughts, feelings and questions. At this age, it is useful to make the labyrinth as sensory as possible.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
