Good morning everyone! I hope everyone is keeping well.
I sent an email yesterday about starting to use the Seesaw app. Thank you to those of you who have signed up to it. The work I set won’t change and I will still post here on the blog for those of you who do not have access to it. This app will allow you to post pictures of your child’s work directly to the app or record their reading. Please do get in touch if you need help with a code or have any questions. My email is stcolumSI@gmail.com
I will send another email today between 10 and 11 with a new letter code if you need one.
Please see below some activities your child can do today.
Literacy: Sea Lion Splash. Today we will begin our new story, Sea lion splash. This story has quite a few tricky words so I would like us to take our time with it. Please revise these words before starting: zoo feeding time people
I would like you to read the first two pages of the story today.
Maths: We began learning about time yesterday. Put 1 minute on a timer and see how far you can count up in 1 minute! How did you feel counting against the clock? Was a minute longer or shorter than you thought? Practice sound of number by dropping a cube/item in a tin/jar/box and encourage your child to count the ‘drops’ without looking
Say the days of the week in order. Mam/dad say a day and have your child say the days of the week starting at that day e.g. mam/dad says Tuesday and child continues on. Do this starting at a few different days. Talk about what you do on different days of the week. Which days are the weekend? Which day is your favourite day of the week?
