Literacy

Today we are going to learn some information and facts about sea creatures to help us write a fact file. Read through the information attached. What did you find out?

 

Pick one or more of the sea animals you have learnt about and use the information to create a fact page. What does the animal eat? What does it look like? You can use the sheet attached or create your own.

 

Don’t forget the checklist we use in class when writing. Have you used your Fred fingers to spell words? Have you got finger spaces between your words? Are your letters well formed? If you notice a letter is the wrong way you could practice that to! Each sentence should start with a capital letter and end with a full stop.

 

Topic

Today we are looking at a very interesting sea creature – it’s a seahorse. Did you know..?  

 

  • The seahorse feeds constantly on plankton and tiny fish. It moves each of its eyes independently, so it can follow the activity of passing sea life without giving its presence away.
  • Seahorses have no teeth and no stomach. Food passes through their digestive systems so quickly, they must eat almost constantly to stay alive.
  • They can consume 3,000 or more brine shrimp per day.
  • There are about 40 known species of seahorse.
  • Seahorses prefer to swim in pairs with their tails linked together.
  • They swim upright and avoid predators by mimicking the colour of underwater plants.
  • Except for crabs, few marine predators eat the seahorse – it is too bony and indigestible.
  • Seahorses propel themselves by using a small fin on their back that flutters up to 35 times per second. Even smaller pectoral fins located near the back of the head are used for steering.

 

There is also a book called Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle – our class author! You can find it here … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvxFOnBLR4c

 

Today we would like you to create a seahorse collage. You can use nay materials you like, draw and paint or use the template attached. We are using sponges and paint to decorate ours. Don’t forget to send us a picture of your work!

 

 

 

Maths 

 

Good morning children, this week in maths we are learning about length, height and distance. Let’s start our maths off with recalling doubles, double 1 is 2, double 2 is 4, double 3 is 6 and double 4 is 8.

 

Please open and complete ‘Teddy’s tower height’ activity and complete with your child, the activity is explained on the sheet.

 

Let’s finish off our maths with counting out objects from a larger group. Get a large group of counting objects and ask your child to get a certain amount of the pile, with them counting each object as they take it out.
