I hope you are well.
It's lovely seeing all your work on Purple Mash. Well done!
Here is some fabulous colour work from Marcell, Camilla, Malachi, Gabriel and Zuzanna.
Phonics: Today we are going to keep practising the sounds we have learned and blending those sounds to make words. Watch the video and join in with Rachel.
Writing: It is important to keep practising your handwriting. Follow the direction of the arrows. Use your magic writing finger at first, don't stop writing until you finish the letter. Next, try writing it on paper. We are going to practise the letters from the curly caterpillar family. Can you see Curly Caterpillar? Try going over him first before you write the letters. We have done these letters before - can you do them even better this time?
Literacy: We are going to draw some more of our own story maps today. See the video below for today's lesson.
Compare the mass of two objects to see which is heavier or lighter. You could hold the objects in your hands to feel which is heavy or light. You could make your own balance scales using a coat hanger and buckets/plastic cups/yoghurt pots/boxes/bags, then place the coat hanger on a door knob (see pictures below) or play this interactive game from Nrich called Seesaw Shenanigans to see which woodland animals are heavy or light. nrich.maths.org/14796
Remember to talk about which is heavier or lighter - The apple is heavier than the grape. The lego figure is lighter than the teddy. Try to predict which is heavier or lighter before you weigh them.
Did you know that you can use your body to make music? Have a go at the activities below to make music using only your body. Can you make up your own?
