As always, let's start our week off by having a look at some of the fantastic work that we received on Friday:
Last week we learnt all about the story of the Frog Prince. We learnt about the life cycle of a frog and today we are going to learn a bit more about frogs. To start with watch this clip about frogs.
Now today we would like you to label the parts of a frog. First watch this clip where Mrs Daniel will go through your learning with you.
Now we would like you to use the sounds you know (it’s ok if words are not spelled correctly), use your Fred fingers to sound the words out and use the sound card if you need to remind yourself of the sounds. Remember if you can’t print the worksheet at home, have a go at drawing your own frog and then label it. We can’t wait to see your writing!
Challenge: We have attached a frog for you to cut out and put together yourself. You don’t have to use split pins, don’t worry just stick the frog on a piece of paper. Can you tell your grown up a fact you have learnt about frogs?
For our first maths lesson this week, we are going to be learning about comparing height. Height is how tall something is. Have a look at today’s video to find out more by clicking here.
Today we are going to be using cubes to create towers. Before we start, we need to have a look at some super maths words. These words will be really useful for today’s activity:
For today’s activity you are going to need some cubes, and a dice. To start you need to roll your dice, and carefully count how many you have rolled. Next, build a tower to correspond with this. Once you’ve done that, we would like you to build a tower that is taller, and a tower that is shorter. Do this as many times as you wish. Can you compare your towers using our super maths words?
To simplify this activity focus on using two towers rather than three at first, making a clear distinction between the tallest and the shortest.
This link will take you to some online cubes, which you can use to complete the activity: https://www.didax.com/apps/unifix/ . If you have your own cubes, Lego, blocks etc. at home they would be fantastic to use instead.
Once you’ve tried this practically, have a go at drawing your own towers (if you want to, you could make them into castle towers just like in our Princess and the Frog story!). Can you draw three towers that are all different heights? How can you compare them? Can you use our super maths words?
If you are able to, find out the heights of others within your household (e.g. by measuring yourself against a wall, or by using a tape measure/piece of string). How can you compare all of your heights?
This afternoon we will be learning some music. In this lesson, we will start to explore different pitches by using our imagination. We will also keep exploring pulse by keeping the beat. Click on this link to start your lesson.
In this lesson you will learn about different festivals and how people celebrate these festivals. You will have an understanding of the similarities and differences between the festivals you celebrate and those that other people from different religions celebrate.
