Good Morning Carle Class :)
It is terrific Tuesday. How was your day yesterday? Did you manage to get all of your work done? What did you have nice for tea last night? Are you remembering to wash your hands using our hand washing song. Do you remember it?
Wash, wash, wash your hands, wash them nice and clean. On the front and on the back and fingers in between.
How did the mini beast hunt go? What did you find in the garden? Today we want you to use what you found in your writing.
Draw a picture of what you found. Can you label them? Can you write the name of the insect? Can you write some simple sentences to tell us about what happened on your hunt? For example - In the garden I found a spider in the bush. He had made a web to catch flies.
Let's get those brains nice and warm. Ask an adult to write numerals 0-20 down and cut them up. Get an adult to give you a number, can you match the number to the numeral in front of you. Then order the numerals 0-20.
This week we are focusing on more complex patterns. We are going to practice, repeat and complete our own AB, ABB and AAB patterns. Yesterday you were acting out and making complex patterns. Attached is a document about complex repeating patterns. Please feel free to read the rest of the document and complete the patterns on pages 5,6 and 7 for your maths activity. If possible please print them out and cut out the bottom strip of the page.You can complete the patterns using the strip. Please feel free to send these in :)
Time to finish off our maths lesson. Read any numerals from the numerals 0-20 you have used today. Choose any number and read the number. Can you count the correct amount of objects to match your numeral. Let's make sure we recognise and understand all numbers to 20.
Design and make a bug house or home!
You can choose any of the following:
Here is a step to step guide.
The basic structure. You will need a strong, stable framework that's no more than a metre high!
Old wooden pallets are perfect for a large hotel as they’re sturdy and come with ready-made gaps. Start by laying some bricks on the ground as sturdy corners. Leave some spaces in between the bricks – try creating an H-shape. Add three or four layers of wooden pallets on top of your bricks. If you leave larger ends, you’re more likely to attract hedgehogs.
You can also make a smaller structure, depending on the wood and space you have.
Add a 'roof'. When you think you've gone high enough, making sure the stack remains stable, put a roof on to keep it relatively dry. Use old roof tiles or some old planks covered with roofing felt.
You could even give it a 'green' or 'brown' roof by putting a bit of rubble or gritty soil on top. Only plants that love dry conditions cope up there, but some wild flower seeds could arrive on the breeze and take root.
Surround your hotel with nectar-rich flowers – essential food for butterflies, bees and other pollinating insects.
If you want, choose a name for your hotel and put a sign up outside. Children will get a thrill from making their first home.
Please take a photo, and post it to inspire others. Most activity in your hotel is likely to be after dark in the warmer months, so go out with a torch to see who is popping in and out
