Extension - Can you find other objects from around the house to put in your boat and estimate how many it will hold before it sinks? E.g. crayons

A guide to uploading observations to Tapestry
Read Write Inc. Phonics have created lots of free resources to help your child continue their learning during these unprecedented times, including eBooks, practice sheets, slideshows, videos, and parent films. Please do not fear, you don't have to be a phonics expert, this is just an opportunity for your child to revisit prior learning and stay in touch with the Speed Sounds.
All resources are in sets so please ask your child which teacher they have currently for phonics to match the set speed sounds. Miss Renwick - Set 1 Mrs Collier - Set 1 Miss Sharples - Set 2 Mrs Vickers/Mrs Holden - Set 2/Set 3 (If your child is unsure please email me at email@example.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible). Knowing which group your child is in will also enable you to choose an ebook at their appropriate level.
The practice sheets don't need to be printed, they can be looked at online and then your child can practice their writing in the workbooks that got sent home.
If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Week 1 - Here are your challenges for the remainder or the week. Next week you will have 5 challenges to complete.
#1 Before we finished school we were learning all about money. Can you and your grown-up's make your own snack shop, add price tags to the snacks and find loose change around your house that you can use to pay for your snacks throughout the day.
Can you remember the names of the different coins?
Can you use the coins to make different amounts?
How do you pay for something that is 4p?
#2 Can you draw a picture of your family and label it? You could even write a sentence about what fun things you have been up to on your first week off.
We miss you all already so please don't forget to update us with what you are doing and pictures of you completing your challenges on Tapestry.
