Please click the link below to enjoy a weekly Collective Worship with your family.
Did you enjoy learning all about snails?
This week we will be beginning a new topic all about ‘Animals’.
Did you know Knowsley Safari Park and Chester Zoo are back open? How exciting!
As part of our topic about animals, maybe you would like to go on a family trip to learn more about animals.
Lots of you have been enjoying using Oxford Owl at home and reading their ebooks online. There are lots of books available to read related to our topic of animals. Maybe read a story aloud and ask an adult to video it so that we can listen to you read too.
Another website you could try for even more ebooks is Collins Big Cat ebooks. Click the link below and follow the instructions for parents.
You can also find lots of audio books related to animal on the BBC school radio website.
There are also lots of lovely comics on Comics for Phonics to keep you busy.
This week, we thought it might be nice for you to look through the books you have at home and find your favourite animal books to read together.
Suggested writing activities
E.g. I am big.
I have two big ears.
I have four legs.
I have a long trunk.
What am I?
Remember to ask your adult to send a photograph of your work to your teacher.
Topmarks also has lots of fun games to play at home. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Search.aspx?Subject=16
This week, we will be learning about doubling and halving.
In school we love using number blocks episodes to support our Maths Learning. Please click the link to the episode Double Trouble.
In this episode One explores the Double Dungeon of Doom in search of the golden apples and doubles all the way up to Octoblock.
Oak National Academy also have daily videos linked to doubling and halving.
Some practical activities to try.
As always, we have tried to think of practical maths activities that you can do at home.
Why not try making a doubling mirror at home.
Could you draw some of your own ladybirds and add the correct amount of spots?
Could you do some finger painting and fold the paper to double the amount?
You could even make a butterfly and paint on the spots.
Could you make a fruit salad? Your grown up could write a list of ingredients for 1 person and you could double the amount to make a fruit salad for 2 people.
For example: “the recipe says add 2 bananas. How many bananas would you need? What is double 2?”
This week, we are going to be learning all about different types of animals.
Do you have any animal toys at home? Could you sort the animals into different categories? For example
Pets, Wild animals, Farm animals, Jungle animals
There are lots of lovely craft ideas available related to animals. Click the following link for inspiration.
You may want to express yourself through music this week.
BBC Teach has lots of lovely songs for Reception children. Bring The Noise: Primary school Early Years music - BBC Teach
Yoga for children will help you to feel calm and relaxed. The cosmic kids You Tube site https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYogahttps://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga have many videos using different characters and stories to suit your child such as Frozen, Star Wars, The Gruffalo and other books to name but a few.
