We have attached some pictures of insects for today’s writing. Can you pick one of the pictures and write a fact file for the insect. What does the insect look like? What does it eat? Where would it live? Why? You could ask an adult or look for information on a tablet or other device.
Does each sentence make sense? Have you used your Fred fingers to spell words? Have you got finger spaces between your words? Are your letters well formed? Have you got a full stop at the end of each sentence? Is your writing clear and readable?
Don’t forget to make sure the letters you write are clear. Have you remembered your finger spaces between each word? Our aim is that everyone can read our fabulous writing so make sure it’s readable.
'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. Yesterday you worked with your child to complete these activities.Today we would like to see if your child retained the information and can complete them on their own like we do in class. Ask your child to talk about what you are asking them to do, see if they can explain it and complete 3 or 4 patterns on their own from the remaining sheets on the document attached ( we used this one yesterday). If your child is struggling, repeat yesterdays activity working with them to complete one and then allow them to complete the others independently. If by the end of this session they can not complete them on their own please send us an email and we will find something else to support their learning.
Here is the information from yesterdays lesson:
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.
Today we are going to complete the life cycle of a butterfly. Attached is a powerpoint to support you with the life cycle and to talk your child about each stage. There is also a video available on the link below to show you the life cycle.
Ask your child about the different stages of the life cycle. We would like you to complete a life cycle of a butterfly. You can either use the sheet attached to complete it using a printer or you can draw the life cycle on a piece of paper and send it to us, When you have finished ask your child to hold up the life cycle and talk about what happens ( this can be brief) and send it into us. We would love to see more videos of the children. They really do make our day!
