I wanted to say a massive well done to all of you on your ‘live writing’ session yesterday! It was great to read all of your stories and see how much progress you have made with your writing, sentence structure and letter formation.
Today is our last normal routine day as tomorrow we will be celebrating ‘World book day’ and Friday is a non-screen day which involves fun, active activities to finish our last day of home learning.
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:
Maths task: Minibeast counting.
Today we are going to look at adding more. Have a go at using some objects to see how I use you can count practically before starting my minibeast counting. You could use some minibeast animal figures if you have some at home!
Using the sheet below, have a go at adding to the pictures and writing the total.
Today I would like you to read the story ‘The very hungry caterpillar’. If you have this book at home, you can use your own copy or watch the video of the story below.
After you have listened to the story, complete ‘The very hungry caterpillar book review using the document below.
Topic task: Minibeast café!
Today we will be using our minibeast hotels we created to find out what minibeasts like to eat. Today you are going to turn your minibeast hotel into a minibeast café!
Finding out which foods minibeasts prefer. Place plates of different foods including bread, fruit, vegetables, cereals, cooked meat or fish, cheese, or yoghurt in a sunny spot outside.
Can you predict the minibeasts’ favourite food? Write a list of food you have left out in your minibeast café and next to it write which minibeast you think will eat it. Don’t forget to check the plates throughout the day to count any visiting minibeasts. Were your predictions right?
You could even create an open and close sign so the minibeasts know when the food is out and they can come and visit your amazing café!
Parent Note- Minibeasts prefer fruit because of their scent and sugary taste. You will need to be quiet when they go to the plates, so the minibeasts don’t get frightened!
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. Maths task: Using the document below, print out the butterfly and shapes. Create your own patterned butterfly wings. Can you also explore the symmetry of your butterfly wings with a mirror?
2. Writing task: Write minibeast names, flower names and key words on some pebbles or large stones. (You could always print some stone shapes or create your own outline and cut them out for the pebbles) Make your own sentences by arranging the pebbles on a grass mat.
