Weekly Nursery Rhyme - Please spend this week learning 5 Little Monkeys, following the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0j6AZhZFb7A
Reading – Please read one of the books you have been assigned on Rising Stars each day. The idea is to read a book more than once to build up fluency. Once you have read a book a couple/few times so you are more fluent, please complete the quiz at the end and move it to the ‘finished’ section.
Please also read key words daily as flashcards (should take 2-3 minutes)
Phonics – Throughout this week, we would like the children to practise reading and spelling (daily) key words said & have. Don’t forget, also, to complete the Key Word Assessment if you didn’t do it in the week before half term, and upload a copy to Tapestry. Today's learning - Watch the short video above, then click on the link to find out about the first of this week’s phonemes (air) https://youtu.be/16SoHA-oKCA. Play Education City activity Fairy Pair.
English - This week, our English work will be based around the story of The Hungry Caterpillar. An extra challenge this week will be to write a simple story in a similar style, by just changing the character and the foods eaten and put it into a little book with pictures. Certificates will be awarded for those that take up this challenge and submit their stories. Try and do it over time, just one sentence per day. e.g. Once upon a time there was a Very Hungry Worm. On Monday he ate 1 juicy plum. On Tuesday he ate two crunchy biscuits. On Wednesday he ate 3 jam cakes. On Thursday he ate 4 red apples….etc. They don’t need to turn into anything in the end, it could just be that they enjoyed a good sleep at the end after all the eating! However, this is a challenge so is only optional.
Today's set home learning - Watch the animated version of the book – following the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75NQK-Sm1YY. Can you remember what he ate on different days? Why do you think he ate so much? Why do you think the Hungry Caterpillar felt sick? What happened on the last days? Choose your favourite fruit and have go at drawing it by hand or on Minimash. Think of some good describing words for your chosen fruit. Have a go at writing them down around your fruit.
Maths - Watch the video clip Building 9 & 10 Week 2 Session 1 Counting Back from 10 (https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/building-9-10-week-2/) to practise counting back from 10.
Topic - We are beginning our growth and change topic this term. We will start by looking at the life cycle of a butterfly because of our Hungry Caterpillar theme this week. Watch Mrs Parker lead the book about a butterfly’s life cycle: https://youtu.be/aXhlRV31ywU. Then, watch a short video of this life cycle in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVm5k99PnBk After that, have a go at cutting and sticking the pictures in the correct order to show the butterfly life cycle. Could you add labels?
Alternatively, if you are feeling creative, you could create a different type of butterfly life cycle, following one of the examples below. The choice is yours! ☺
