# Tuesday 21st April

Tuesday

It’s terrific Tuesday!

RWI

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

Literacy

Today we are going to use those story maps we made yesterday. Can you retell the story using your map? We now want you to use the story map to write some simple sentences about what the caterpillar ate. Can you add some describing words and detail into your sentence?

For example - On Monday he had one crunchy, green apple. On Saturday he had a big slice of red watermelon.

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 too!

Maths

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?

How far did you get counting backwards yesterday? We had some amazing videos of children thank you! Can you count backwards from 30? 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.

Yesterday you learnt about patterns and you made them using actions. Today we are going to play a game and the link is below.

Read the pattern that you can see, what colour and shapes can you see? For example red square, yellow circle, red square so what comes next? Say the pattern out loud and complete the next shape in the pattern.

Lets finish off our maths by estimating how many objects you can see. Estimating is guessing how many objects you have without counting them. Once you have estimated how many objects you have, count and see if you were close.

Topic

Caterpillar craft –

Below are a few fun caterpillar crafts you can complete. If you are struggling to find these resources have a look what else you have in your home. Can you find any pom poms or empty toiler roles? You could make one out of paper. Make sure you send us in your pictures,we would love to see them.

What information do you know about caterpillars? Can you make a fact sheet to go with your craft? Remember to use your check list we use in class.
