1. Phonics- please follow lesson 2 on our phonics page
Observe how different the seaside was when your grandparents were young.
Look at the seaside factfile attached below and think about the following questions: how is it different to the seaside that we know now? Is anything the same? Have a discussion with your child about the similarities and differences.
Task: compare the seaside 'Then' and 'Now'. Cut and stick the pictures in the correct columns. This task can be completed independently.
3. Maths - dates
Ask questions such as:
What day is it today? What month are we in? How many days in a week? How many months in a year? What is the date today? Do you know any special events? What month are they in?
Powerpoint slides 14-18, try and have a discussion with your child using the same vocabulary as yesterday where appropriate: before, after, first, next, then, finally.
Worksheet task: fill in the blanks and answer questions about the days and months of the year.
*If possible this could be done practically using a wall calender if you have one at home (velcro sticking days and months in the correct order).
Or through role play e.g. planning a shopping list for the week writing the days at the top, or making your own calander with the correct months.*
It is important that children know how to write and spell the days and months as well as say their correct order!
