A marvellous Monday to you all Carle Class. We hope you had a lovely Easter. I know we ate way too much chocolate!
Welcome back to your learning activities. For the next two weeks our learning is based on the story of the hungry caterpillar. It’s by Eric Carle – have you heard his name before? That’s right – he’s our author! Enjoy the activities and remember to start sending us those emails again with all your fabulous work.
Remember to practise your sounds daily. RWI will be holding daily virtual lessons for children to practise their sounds:
Set 1 sounds at 9:30am or 12:30pm
Set 2 sounds at 10:00am or 1:00pm
This week we are starting with the story ‘The hungry caterpillar’ by Eric Carle. You can find the story here ….
Once you have watched the story can you draw a story map to retell the story of what the hungry caterpillar ate and what happened to him? (For more information on story maps you can google Pie Corbett.) Here is an example for another story. Don’t forget to label your pictures.
Lets start our maths learning off by recapping what 2D shapes we have learnt. Can you find any shapes in your house? What shapes did you find? Can you name them? How many corners do they have? How many sides do they have?
Can you count backwards from 20? Use your number line to help you so you know what each number looks like? Think you can count backwards from a bigger number? Have a go and let us know what you got to.
This week in maths we are learning all about patterns. Can you copy this pattern? Clap, clap, kness, clap, clap, kness. What comes next? Clap, clap. Ask your parent to create a pattern for you to copy. What comes next in their pattern? Can you make up a pattern for you parent to copy? Can they work out what comes next? Try these patterns too! Punch left, punch right, punch left, punch right. Jump, jump, clap, clap, jump, jump, clap, clap. Hands up, hands up, hands down, hands up, hands up, hands down. What other patterns did you come up with? Send us your new pattern and we will try and work out what comes next.
Lets finish off our maths lesson off using our number line. Can you find 1 more than 10? Can you find one less than 10? What is 1 less than 12? What is one more than 15?
Can you make a hungry caterpillar hat to wear when you retell the story? Got some spare paper and crayons? Ask an adult to fit a piece of paper around your head and join the ends together using glue, sellotape or staples. Next cut out a large circle for the head and smaller circles for the eyes and nose. Try and match them to the same colour as the picture. Do you remember what he ate on each day of the week.
The Hungry Caterpillar loves eating different types of food. Use some plastic food, make some out of paper or even use objects you can throw safely. Make a goal and try to aim the objects into the hole. Remember to use an under arm throw to control your object. Did you get it in? Move further back and see if you can get it in.
The weather is beautiful this week so lets make some healthy snack foods to enjoy. Choose your favourite fruit or vegetables and create your own healthy hungry caterpillar. You could even try new foods and see if you like them.Make sure you send us in what you have made.Below are some healthy ideas for you to try.
