Monday

Today we would like you to:

  • Get active! You could go for a family walk, make an obstacle course in the garden, do some dancing or exercises with video clips (I have added some more 'Go Noodle' dances to our resources)! Don't forget, at 9am, Joe Wicks is continuing to do a daily PE session. Have fun being active today!
  • Read for at least 20 minutes. This could be a real book, e-books (Twinkl, Oxford Owl) or Bug Club books. We have allocated some more great books onto your Active Learn account. 
  • Practise your spellings (look, cover, write, check). You will find spellings at the bottom of this page.
  • Maths

For maths today, we would like you to warm up by counting. You can count in 2s, 5s, 10, 3s or 4s. You could get active by jumping as you count! Try star jumps, bunny jumps or kangaroo bounces!

After your warm up, try to put some big numbers in order from smallest to biggest.

Challenge:

Order these numbers from smallest to biggest:

(Medium): 36                  63                  42                  39                95

 

(Spicy): 98                   89                   101                    110                   111

 

Now try some of your own. You could make the numbers by rolling dice.

Here is a link to arrow cards and base 10. This will help you to understand the value of the numbers. Explore making different numbers, big and small!

The following are some fun games to get you ordering numbers. You can choose to order two digits, or once you are confident you can move on to 3 digits.

  • English

 

This week we are going to begin thinking about traditional tales.

What traditional tales can you think of? Make a list of all the titles you can think of down your page and number them. Don’t forget your titles will need capital letters.

We could only think of 4. Can you beat us???

  1. The little red hen
  2.  The enormous turnip
  3. Goldilocks and the 3 bears
  4. The 3 little pigs and many more.

Well done Maple class!

Now we are going to read ‘Jack and the beanstalk’. I am sure you are familiar with this story already. Traditional tales are stories that are enjoyed time and time again. By enjoying this story now and building on your skills over the next couple of weeks you will be ready to write your own story after that.

(Start from 1 minute 30 seconds in as there is a bit of unnecessary talking at the beginning.)

After enjoying the story, have a think about where you would like to climb to if you had a magical beanstalk to climb. Write where you would climb to in a descriptive sentence.

  • Science

    For the next few week we are going to find out about plants. Today, it would be great if you could get planting. Do you have any beans to plant (broad beans are good)? Cress seeds are great too (look in our class gallery to see Evie Neale’s cress)! If you don’t have seeds or beans to plant yet, don’t worry. There are seeds and bulbs in Lidl and Sainsburys, perhaps your grown up could have a look next time they go.

    If you are not able to plant today – just go outside and explore your garden or local area. Can you dig up a weed and look very carefully at it’s leaves or roots? What can you see?

I found these seeds in sainsburys. Cress is easy to grow indoors. You could think of some interesting ways to grow it (like in an egg shell)! In our gallery you will see Alfie's picture of his huge tray of cress! If you open the packets carefully (not like I did) there is extra information and an activity inside!
