# Tuesday 12th January 2021

Hi everyone.

I hope you are all well.  I can see from the photographs you have been sending in that you have been keeping very busy.  Well done for working so hard.

Here are some suggestions for Tuesday.

Kind Regards,

Mr Leese

## Geraldine the Giraffe learns /t/ sound

Can you find anything in your house beginning with 't'. Have a look.

## Learn to write 't'.

Learn to read and write the lowercase letter T with this fun and engaging letter formation video. Listen to the phonic sound the letter T makes over and over...

Now that you have learned the first set of letters (masdt) we can have a go at blending these sounds together tomorrow to say some words.  Keep up the good work.

Here is a copy from the BBC site listed above.

" Recognising numbers is one of the most important early steps for maths. You can begin by pointing out lots of different numbers to your child, such as the numbers on front doors, on the front of buses, on T-shirts, on television. After a while your child will recognise that the word “two” can also be written as a number “2”.

Activities for number recognition:
1: Number spotting
Can be done anywhere! Talk about the numbers on buses, front doors, price tags or even on the back of footballers’ shirts.

2: Numbers Hunt
Hide some cut-out numbers from 1-10 around the house and see if you child can find them – ask them to shout the number out loud when they find it"

I realise that you won't be out and about at the moment so spotting numbers on doors, buses etc will not be an option, but you may have some numbers in the home that children can look for.

For activity 2 'Number Hunt' I would suggest starting with the numbers 1,2,3 and see if children are able to find and identify these.  If your child is able to do this, then you can add more numbers to increase the level of challenge.
