Reading

This week as part of our Big Question we are reading the story ‘Handa's Surprise'. Click on the link below to listen to the story.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocnRQi89nK8

Once you have listened to the story, talk to your parent/ carer about what happened at the beginning, middle and end of the story.  How many fruits were in Handa's basket? Why was her friend surprised? Can you remember the names of the fruit that Handa put in the basket for her friend? What words did the author use to describe the fruit?

Your challenge is to make your very own fruit salad. Which fruits will you use? We would love to see a picture or a video of you making your fruit salad. You can email them to us at: kcampbell@oldmoat.manchester.sch.uk or khall@oldmoat.manchester.school.uk

Phonics

Which fruit was your favourite in the story of Handa's Surprise? Can you make a fruit puppet and think of a name that sounds the same as the initial sound of the fruit's name? For example Ben the banana, Ollie the orange, Ahmed the avocado. We would love to see some of your puppets and hear about the name you have given them. Please remember to email them to us.

Song time

We love to sing at our school. Click on the song below to learn the song that is all about patterns. You can ask your parent/ carer to join in with you.

by Miss Campbell & Mrs Aldous

Hello everyone, we hope you are all keeping safe and well at home. Miss Campbell, Ms Lane, Mrs Watson & Mrs Aldous are all missing you very much! 

Reading  

This week as part of our Big Question Where does our food come from?, we are reading the story ‘Jasper's Beanstalk' Click here to listen to the story.

Once you have listened to the story, talk to your parent/ carer about what happened at the beginning, middle and end of the story. Can you draw pictures to show what happened at the beginning, middle and end of the story?

Song time   

In our Nursery we love to sing together. This week our song is about a farmer who likes to plant seeds. Can you join in with the lyrics? Click here to listen to the song.

Maths 

This week we want you to play the game 'Ladybird Spots'. Click here to go to the website. There are three different activities you can play but this week we want you to focus on matching.

Start by clicking the tab ‘1 to 5' you will need to count the spots on the ladybird and match it to the correct numbered leaf.

After that click on the tab ‘6 to 10'. If you have time, why not explore the other activities.

Phonics   

This week we want you to play the game ‘I spy'. You will need to listen to the letter sound and think about which animal or object has that initial sound at the start of the word. At the beginning of each round, it would be really helpful to pause the game and say out loud the names of the animals and objects so that your child can listen very carefully.  Click here to go to the game. 

Purple Mash 

We have set three ‘2Do's' on Purple Mash for you to explore.

2do – Digging.

2do – My Garden.

Click here to sign in with your log in details. If you can't remember them email khall@oldmoat.manchester.sch.uk and we will send them out to you.

It's worth following the links to these free resources - watch out on the libraries blog for drawing sessions with Nick Sharratt, illustrator and author who illustrates the Daisy books, among others.  Here he is, with his fantastic book, "You Choose."

Reading Challenge

by Mrs Collier

Wow!  I am really impressed with your responses to the Reading Challenges. We've got some deep thinkers at Old Moat.

This week, I am sharing a poem I shared during our Facebook bedtime stories because now, even more than ever, it has a really important message.  It's by a poet called Benjamin Zephaniah.  Read the poem, have a look at the performance of it on the link, talk about it with your family and friends then answer the questions.

RECIPE FOR THE BRITISH

https://youtu.be/dZ1yYOAwvvo

1.  What is the most important part of the recipe?

2.  What is the message of the poem?

3.  Is there anything you would add to the recipe?

4. What do you think is the most important part of being British?

The other part of this week's challenge is to blog about a favourite poem.  One of my favourite poems is, "O, Tell me the Truth About Love" by W.H. Auden.  My stepdaughter read it at my wedding, so I have particularly fond memories of it.  It's about a child wondering what love is, and it's very funny.  It also has great rhythm and rhyme.
