Rock Drop

Mrs Webb and Mrs Paramore need your help.

We wish to spread the

POWER OF POSITIVITY

Can you help us?

We need your help to create painted rocks with kind messages. We would like to hide them all over the Cove Infant School Site. In the future after COVID-19 we would like children of Cove Infants to find your messages to make them smile.

Anyone can design a rock if you have sibling or family member who would like to join in our project that would be lovely.

Please use lots of colours.

Maybe you could squeeze a picture as well as your message on your rock.

Don’t forget it has many sides.

Please allow time for your rock to dry before painting it in PVA glue vanish.

Your rock will need a varnish if they are to survive the rainy weather we get in the UK.

Once you are finished, please go on a walk or a cycle to Cove Infants School.

You will find a box. This is the rock drop. It will be located on the right hand side of the main black metal gate at the start of the drive a box. Please post your rock into the box without entering the school site. These rocks will remain in the box and be collected after a safe time frame. They will then be cleaned in line with school policy. In the future these rocks will be placed on the school site for children to find and enjoy!

If your child is settled and you feel ready for it…

Week 18

Home Learning

Reading

Please listen to your child read. If they get stuck on a word remind them to use one of our 5 reading strategies to work out the word. If they still cannot read it please read it to them.

Challenge:

Homophones our focus this week.

They are two words that sound the same but have a different meaning and are spelt differently. I wonder how many homophones you can find in a book you are reading?

Mathematics Steps to Success Teaching of Maths KS1

Week 17-

This week in math’s we are focusing on Subtraction.

 

Challenge/Investigation:

Subtraction Squares

Subtraction squares

Goal:

To create an unbroken line of counters from your starting square to the opposite side of the board.

Number of Players:

2

Materials Needed:

Copy of the game board.

2 numbered cubes
About 20 yellow and 20 red counters. (You could use stones/pasta/any small objects.)

How to Play:

Decide who will go first.
Choose one of the coloured starting squares.
Close to your place, stack the counters that are the same colour as your starting square.
The person with the yellow starting square will travel down the board.
The person with the red starting square will travel across the board.
Take turns throwing the two numbered cubes.
Find the difference between the two numbers showing on the cubes.
Collect the same number of counters of your colour.
Place the counters in a line one next to each other on the board beginning at your starting square.
The line does not need to be straight – you can place the counters to the side of each other.
You cannot skip a square. You cannot move diagonally.
If you come to a counter of the other player’s that is blocking your line, you will have to travel around that counter!
The first person to reach the other side with an unbroken line of their counters is the winner.
