⭐Wake and Shake every morning on Tapestry to get you ready for your busy day learning at home!⭐


Literacy: The Gingerbread Man

Today I would like you to draw the next section of your story map for The Gingerbread Man. Don't worry if this is taking a while, we have all week to finish these before retelling the story next week. Can your child attempt to label the things they have drawn? Can they hear the initial sound in the word, ie, 'f' in fox, 'c' in cow, 'h' in horse? We only ask children to write the sounds they can hear at this stage, for example the may write 'h-or-s' for horse as they can't hear the 'e' on the end. If your child is only able to hear the initial sound in the word that is still fantastic and they should be encouraged to write this sound next to their picture.


Phonics: 'qu'

Today the video will be all about the 'special friends' 'qu'. After you have watched the video there is the practise sheet. After that I'd like you to have another go at writing your name in your Home Fun book, using the Read Write Inc rhymes to help you.


Maths: Heavy / Light

We are going to continue looking at mass today but first there is a warm up video for you to watch on Tapestry, we are going to play a game of 'Bingo with Mrs Williams!' You'll need a piece of a paper and a pencil to play the game with me.


After that I would like you to go and find an apple, if you have one. If you don't, another piece of fruit, or a potato, would work just as well. After you have found your apple I would like you to hold it in your hand.


⭐Is it heavy or is it light?

⭐Can you think of something that would be heavier than the apple?

⭐Can you think of something that would be lighter than the apple?


Go on a hunt around your house and make two piles of objects - one pile where everything is LIGHTER than the apple and one pile where everything in it is HEAVIER than the apple. Take a photograph and send it to me on Tapestry. 


CHALLENGE - Can you find something that is BIG but LIGHT?

              - Can you find something that is SMALL but HEAVY?
