Focus activity - Forest School
This week we have been thinking about what animals in the savanna eat. Today we would like you to think about what the birds in the UK eat. The PowerPoint talks about different birds and what they eat. We would like you to design or make a bird feeder for one of the different birds. Think about what the bird eats and how you could store this food in a way that makes it easy for the bird to get. Have a think about where it would be best to put the bird feeder. Would it be best hanging in a tree or standing on the ground.
Peg activity - writing
Once you have made your bird feeder, make a poster to attract and persuade all the birds to visit your new feeder. Try to include a statement and a question in your advert. An example of this is:
Are you hungry? Come try our new bird feeder full of delicious nuts.
Lolly activity - Maths
Can you group the animals into tens and ones? Draw a circle around the groups of ten and see how many ones are left. Write out the number of animals there are.
Focus activity - Phonics
During the morning briefing the children will flick through previously taught digraphs, trigraphs and tricky words.
For this game you will need to print three nets of a cube (attached below) or find 3 dice and stick labels on the faces.
On the first cube in red, write one of the following on each face - c, b, s, p, m, sh
Second cube (Yellow or Orange) or, au, aw, ore, or, au
Third cube (Green) t, n, k, d, x 2 blank
The children are used to playing this game at school. They should know to roll the red, orange then green cube. Once they have rolled all three, 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.
