Create Your Own Creature!
We’ve looked at lots of real sea animals that live in Antarctica: for example, killer whales, penguins, seals, and squid. Now, invent your own!
Give your creature a name. Then, draw what it looks like! Here are some things to ask yourself:
Does it have fins . . . arms . . . legs . . . all three?
Does it swim underwater . . . or live on land?
What colour is it?
Is it a scary creature or a cute, cuddly one?
What does it eat?
Peg Activity - Writing
Captain Scott wrote a diary whilst he was on his expeditions. His diary was found in his tent on 12th November 1912.
We would like you to write a diary entry imagining you are Captain Scott on an expedition to the South Pole.
How do you think Captain Scott might have felt on one of the days? Could he have been cold, hungry, tired? Maybe he was upset and fed up that the Norwegians had won the race!
We have given you a writing frame to help give you a few ideas of how to start your sentences if you need it. Use this writing frame to help you write your diary on your own paper.
You could make your diary entry look really old by tea or coffee staining some paper to write on.
Lolly Activity - Maths
Have a go at these 2s, 5s, and 10s games on Education City.
Focus Activity - Phonics
Today we are going to play a game that is similar to full circle. In this game a grown up reads the word and the children find the correct phonemes and make the word. For example, if I said the word ‘show’ they would find the ‘s’, ‘h’, ‘o’ and ‘w’ and put them in the correct order to make the word.
To be able to do this at home with your child we would like an adult to read the word, your child should then be able to hear the sounds and either write the word down or use the phoneme cards for your child to find the sounds they need to use. Please make sure your child knows what the word means. For example, after you have said ‘owl’, put it into a sentence “The owl was flying during the night.”
