Phonics

Watch the PowerPoint that I put on and practise all the sounds. Continue to use the set 2 stretchy sounds booklet. This week we are concentrating only on the igh sound. In the booklet work through page 11.

Literacy

It’s your turn to show how much you have learned about bees this week. If you haven’t heard it or read it somewhere then check out the internet to help you fill in the missing words on the Bee fact sheet.

Maths

The queen bee needs to share the bees out fairly so that each flower has half the number of bees from the hive.

Can you help the queen bee put half of the bees on to each flower? Draw the bees on the flowers. On the back of your sheet can you draw some more bees in the hive (a number you haven’t used and see if you can half the bees). Is it a certain kind of number that can be halved?

UtW/PD/EAD/PSED

Make honey sandwiches. WALT: Explore taste and texture.

Explain to the child that they are going to make sandwiches to have as a snack. Discuss the appearance of the honey and its pouring qualities. As you make the sandwiches talk about the thickness of the bread slices, how much spread is needed and how to spread it to the edges of the bread. Once the honey is added encourage child to line up the top slice of bread to match the lower one before pressing them into place. Cut into triangles or squares. Photograph the process and child’s finished sandwiches. Key vocab: Sweet, sticky, clear, see-through, cloudy, runny, set, spread, crumbly, brown, white, slice, crust.

As the child enjoys their snack of honey sandwiches, explain how bees work together. Explain that they live in large groups and share the honey that they make. Discuss how by helping each other and working together the children can achieve things which they could not do alone.
