Well done on completing your last Monday of home learning! It is always lovely to see all your home learning! You have done so well and made a great start to our ‘why do ladybirds have spots?’ topic.
We will be following our usual routine for today, don’t forget to complete our writing task today and try your absolute best in this activity as we have our ‘live writing’ session on Wednesday morning during our registration and you will be using this to help you write.
Please continue to send your work to us each day, so we can provide any feedback and see how hard you are working!
Our daily outline of what your day will look like today:
Phonics - Online live session
Topic writing task – to prepare for our live write session tomorrow!
Today we are going to continue learning about time. Today we will be thinking about how long it takes us to do different tasks in a very active way! Let’s go our bodies warmed up and have some fun!
Using a range of timers if you have them at home. For example, phone timer, Alexa timer, egg timer. Measure the different lengths of time when completing different activities and see what you can do in a period of time. For example, one minute.
I have set you some challenges below, lets see how many you can complete in the time.
1. How many star jumps can you do in 30 seconds?
2. How many bean bags can you throw into the hoop in one minute?
3. How many times can you write your name in 30 seconds?
4. How many times can you count to 10 in 30 seconds?
5. How many times can you sing a nursery rhyme in one minute?
Then record your different answers using the table below. You can always create your own similar table too!
Tomorrow the whole school will be completing a ‘live writing’ session during their registration. This means today is important for us to plan for our writing to help us create our minibeast story book tomorrow.
We are going to become an author and create our own minibeast book all together in our ‘live session’. Here below is some questions to think about for tomorrow when creating your minibeast book during our ‘live’ session.
To prepare for our writing tomorrow, we are going to use the minibeast writing plan to write some sentences and key words which we will be able to use during our ‘live writing’ session tomorrow.
There is a selection of minibeast pictures on the planning sheet, I would like you to use your sound mats and minibeast key word mat to support your writing and think of a sentence to write about each minibeast. Please let you child use their sounds and try not to spell any words for them as then I will be able to use their plan tomorrow.
Remember you can use all of them facts, similarities, and differences you learnt about last week! What do they look like? What do they eat? Which minibeast are they similar too? Where do they live?
PLEASE PRINT THE MINIBEAST BOOKLET TEMPLATE BELOW FOR OUR LIVE WRITING SESSION TOMORROW! PLEASE DON’T WRITE TODAY’S PLAN OR PREPARE YOUR CHILD WITH HAVING A LOOK AT THE BOOKLET YET AS THIS IS AN INDEPENDENT TASK TO ASSESS THEIR WRITING AND WE WILL GO THROUGH WHAT THEY NEED TO DO WITH THE BOOKLET TOMORROW DURING REGISTRATION BEFORE WE START OUR ‘LIVE’ WRITE.
PE task: Have a go at the minibeast yoga video below.
Check out Mrs D’s challenge below for PE this week. How many can you complete?
As part of our EYFS Curriculum the children would access a range of choosing activities and learn together and individually through play. I have set some options for you to choose from below. These do not all need to be completed and can be more independent for your child to complete and play maybe even alongside a sibling.
1. Malleable task: Creating your own scented salt dough make leaves and flowers for small world minibeasts to live on. Check out the recipe below!
2. Art challenge task: For the next 30 days, you could complete the art challenge below. Please do not worry if your picture is not exactly 5cm x 5cm as long as it’s a small piece of paper so that at the end your drawings can all be put together to create your very own 30-day art collage. I can’t wait all those amazing drawings!
