Remember to keep practising sounds and story green words and speedy green words. You don’t have to do all at once, just the ones you need the most practise with.
Day 3 Handwriting You’ve got this!
Today we are looking at the lifecycle of the butterfly. Watch the video or read the story again and talk about what happens throughout the week. Look at your worksheet below and talk with your adult about first, second, then and last. Write a short sentence in each box, e.g. first - a little egg on a leaf, second – becomes a caterpillar, then – builds a cocoon, last – a beautiful butterfly. Prompt your child to come up with their own sentence.
Day 3 The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Read through the PowerPoint for different activities. There is a variety of activities that can be completed in relation to the story. You don’t have to complete them all. Chose the ones you think are easier to complete at home.
Illustrate the butterfly’s life-cycle using modelling dough/ clay. Model how to start with an egg shaped piece of dough on a leaf. Model making a caterpillar hatching from an egg by pulling the dough into a long caterpillar shape. Model creating a cocoon shape and finally, mould an adult butterfly. Encourage and model how to create symmetrical patterns using a variety of tools onto the butterfly’s wings. (W30-50b, d, e; 40-60a; ELGi, iii)
This is an example of what we are going in the classroom today.
Print, colour and cut out the story puppets and retell the story to someone in your family.
Dogs Eat Frogs - You should be able to read lots of these words (this can be read throughout the week). Should develop confidence and fluency.
