Hello Robins,

Welcome to another week of home learning.  We hope that you are and your families are all safe and well and are looking forward to your forthcoming Eid celebrations.  We have enjoyed speaking to you and your mums or dads over the last few weeks and this week we will be getting in touch with those of you who we haven't spoken to for a while.  Mums and Dads, if we ring you from our own mobiles, the number will either shown as 'Private' or 'Unknown number' so please don't be afraid to's only us calling for a chat!



First of all, watch this video to practise reading the digraphs and trigraphs and saying the sounds that they make.



Now you will see those digraphs and trigraphs in some real words and some alien words.  First of all you will see lots of real words on balloons.  Read each word and when you have read it you can 'pop' the balloon on the screen.  There are then some aliens, each with its own funny name. Use your blending skills to read the alien names.


Today we have another story written by Eric Carle for you to enjoy - this time it's about a chameleon.  Do you know what is special about chameleons?

Watch this little video clip to find out.  The chameleon doesn't move very much in this clip but watch very carefully and you will see it do something amazing!


Now watch and listen to the story about the Mixed-Up Chameleon.  Even though he can change his colour, he is not happy and wants to be something different.

Would you like to have a go at drawing a mixed-up animal of your own?  What can you create?

You could think of an animal's body to start with, then add a different animal's head, legs, tail, ears, etc etc.  You could list the animals and the different parts of your mixed-up creature, maybe like this:


a cow's body

a duck's head

a rabbit's ears  etc


We would love to see what you come up with.  Have fun!



Last week you were learning about different kinds of measurements.  Today, we would like you to accept a challenge about the measurement of capacity.  Capacity means how much of something an object can hold, for instance, how much juice can you fit into a cup or how many sweets can you fit into a jar.  You will be using words that are linked to capacity, words and phrases such as full, empty, almost full, almost empty, half-full, half-empty, doesn't hold as much as, holds more than, holds the most, holds the least.

This is a challenge you will have to ask an adult to help you with and be careful not to make a mess!

How did you get on with that?  You can send us some photos if you like!


More tomorrow!  Hope you enjoyed today's learning.
