Home Learning – Monday 20th April 2020

Good morning Kangaroos and Giraffes,

We hope you have had an enjoyable Easter break and have kept yourselves busy with lots of fun things. We are so glad the weather has been nice so you can get into the garden and take your daily exercise.

This week we are starting back with our daily English and Maths activities. We should have been starting a new topic this half term in school, Dungeons and Dragons. We are still going to start it with you and hope you enjoy the activities we set.

Today we would like you to complete some activities in your book.

Phonics

We would like you to start the day by doing some phonics. Can you think of some words with the letter group ‘air’, how many can you think of? Can you tell a grown up the words that you know?

English

Our new topic is ‘Dungeons and Dragons’.

Do you think that dragons really exist? Can you talk to a grown up and tell them what you think?

How could we find out?

What stories or films do you know that has a dragon in them?

Red/Possums, Blue/Green and Wombats/Koalas – Can you make a list in your workbook of stories or films with a dragon in them? Remember to use capital letters and finger spaces. Could you draw a picture of the dragons too?

Yellow and Crocodiles – Can you tell a grown up the stories or films that you know that has a dragon in them? Can you draw a picture of the dragons from the stories in your workbook?

Maths

Red and the Possums – Practice counting in 2s. Then, collect 20 objects from around your house. (Lego pieces, pencils, toy cars). We would like you to then ½ these objects. This means splitting them into 2 EQUAL piles. How many objects do you have in each pile?

Blue, Green, Wombats and Koalas – Practice counting in 2s. Then, collect 10 objects from around your house. (Lego pieces, pencils, toy cars). We would like you to then ½ these objects. This means splitting them into 2 EQUAL piles. How many objects do you have in each pile?

Yellow and Crocodiles – Collect 4 objects from around your house. (Lego pieces, pencils, toy cars). We would like you to then ½ these objects. This means splitting them into 2 EQUAL piles. How many objects do you have in each pile?

Remember to ask your grown-up to email your teacher to tell them about the things that you have been doing at home.

Remember to read to someone today, maybe you could find a book with a dragon in!

We hope you enjoy this, love from Mrs Attwood and Mrs Eades.
