Dr Rose has sent us another email. She is going to go to Antarctica. She wants to know about the animals in Antarctica so she's asked for our help again! Dr Rose has asked us to research an Antarctic animal and find 3 facts about it. Send a picture to your teacher’s home learning email and then we can send them to her at the same time. There are some fact sheets here to help you if need them.
Focus Activity - Phonics
During the morning briefing the children will flick through the sounds already taught, we will recap the 'ow' sound and show the children the two different graphemes 'ow' (e.g. cow) and 'ou' (e.g. shout) both making the 'ow' sound. Please play this game with your child, each time they land on a different 'ow' phoneme they will need to practice the spelling of the picture using the 'Does it look right?' strategy. E.g. if they land on crown, you would expect your child to write 'c-r-ow-n' and 'c-r-ou-n', they then pick which one looks right to them. This process should be repeated when they land on a different image.
Focus Activity - Science
Can you help? We have penguins frozen in a block of ice and we need your help to get them out quickly! Fill in the sheet to tell us what you are going to do. You can watch this video to see what happens to ice over time to fill in the final box.
If you would like to have a go at this experiment, use an empty plastic container, add something in that you would like to rescue, put it in the freezer over night. Try using salt, warm water and cold water to see which was the quickest to melt the ice.
