Focus activity - Science
Think about all the animals in all the different places we have looked at during our adventure with Dr Rose. Can you have a go at completing the table to see if there are mammals, birds, reptiles, fish and amphibians in each place Dr Rose has visited. There is a challenge at the bottom of the sheet.
Today we would like you to perform the last page of ‘The Tree’. You can do this in any way you like.
Recite it - use a clear speaking voice to narrate the words
Music - use your rainmaker to make the beat or create a rhythm
Dance it – use movement and actions
You could even try and learn parts of it to say whilst dancing and performing it.
Send us a video of your performance, we would love to see it!
Lolly activity - Maths
Using the table from earlier in the week solve the word problems using addition and subtraction. You can use any method to solve these that we have learnt counting on, number lines, bar models or using counters/lego to help you.
Focus activity - Phonics
During the morning briefing the children will flick through the previously taught digraphs, trigraphs and tricky words.
For this game you will need to print the nets of a cube or have 2 blank dice to hand. On the first cube in red please write one of the following on each face – d, h, st, f, y, n, on the second cube (yellow or orange) please write ear x3, eer x3 and on the final cube in green please write d x2, n, 3xblank.
Why have we got blank green spaces on the dice?
The children are used to playing this game at school. They should know to roll the red, then orange and then the green. Once they have rolled them they can then work out what the word says. Once your child has blended the word, do they know if it is a real or nonsense word, can they give a meaning or put the real word into a sentence? Please discuss the meaning of the word if your child is unsure.
They don’t need to write the words down, but they can if they would like to.
