Phonics

Messy sentences. Can you read the words and make the very messy sentence make sense? Say it in your head first or to an adult and then write it down in your best handwriting.

Literacy

Today we are looking at the two girls and thinking about thoughts they might be having when they find 'his crown, his cloak and his crumpled skin'.

What are thought bubbles? ... They normally appear as cloud shapes above a character's head, with their thoughts as text or pictures inside. We don’t say it out loud! We think it!

Write in each thought bubble what you imagine the girls are thinking. Talk it over with an adult.

Maths

I have put an instruction sheet on with what to do for your maths activity today. The first part is a warm up activity to get you back with your numbers again. You need number cards 6, 7 and 8, felt tips and paper. You can write these down and take a photograph of what you have done.

Act out a fun action rhyme to discover where minibeasts live:

Read the rhyme ‘Above and below’. As you read each verse, introduce simple actions, and then invite the children to copy you as you recite the poem a second time. Actions could include: ‘Beneath my feet’ (look down and step on the spot), ‘Around my feet’ (look down and move head from side to side), ‘Above my head’ (look up) and ‘Beside my head’ (lean back and look to the side).

Invite them to draw their favourite minibeast from the rhyme. Then ask them to cut out their minibeast and place it on display. Let me know what it is, take a picture.
