Today you need to 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 ow sound. In the booklet work through page 14.

Literacy

We have worked on this story all week. Can you now complete the writing frame to tell someone who hasn’t read the story before what it is about? You do not have to tell the whole story however look at the titles of each part and write a word or simple sentence.

e.g. Who it the main character? – a caterpillar. What is the setting? – in a tree in a wood.

The answers need to relate to the story.

UtW/PD/EAD/PSED

Begin by talking about what the children can remember about butterflies. Show the children the butterfly pictures from the Photo Pack. Encourage them to talk about what colours and patterns they can see. Also encourage them to notice that the wings are symmetrical. Tell the children that we are going to play a butterfly game – they need to find matching halves of the butterflies to make a symmetrical picture.

Start the game by asking the children to help you turn all of the cards upside-down and spread them out on the playing area. Demonstrate taking it in turns to turn over 2 cards and seeing if they match. Do they match/make a symmetrical butterfly picture? How can you tell? If they match, the player keeps those cards and play continues to the next person.  If they do not match, the cards are turned back over and play continues to the next person.

Encourage the children to take it in turns and look carefully at the cards to see if they match. Also encourage them to remember where they have seen other cards, which may help them to find a match when they see the other card. Once all the cards have been matched together, encourage the children to describe how they found symmetrical pairs and which ones are their favourites and why.

 

Begins to accept the needs of others and can take turns and share resources, sometimes with support from others (PSED: MF&B 30-50).
