Wednesday 22nd April 2020

Good morning, everybody and welcome to today's home learning activities.  Well done to all those of you who are doing these at home - we hope you all enjoying them.  Thank you to those mums and dads who are sending us photographs of your learning - it's lovely to see so please keep sending them.



Today you're going to practise reading and spelling words with the digraph ar in them.  To remind you how this looks and how it sounds, watch Mr Thorne and Geraldine the Giraffe first.



Now you know how to read words with the digraph ar in them, you will be ready to play the Yes/No game.  You have to read the questions and answer either Yes or No to them.  A word of warning...some of the questions are a bit silly! Just put your thumbs up or down.


     Yes yes Nono
Can a shark bark?    
Are you sitting on a star?    
Is it dark at night?    
Is it far to the moon?    
Do you have six arms?    


Now look at this picture?  What can you see?  Can you write a sentence about it with words that include the ar digraph? Tips for mums and dads - The shark has sharp teeth.


Today you're going to watch a video that tells the story 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'.  Many of you will already know this story.  It's good to be reminded though.




Can you remember all the different things that the caterpillar ate on Saturday?  Have another look and then see if you can make a list of them, using your phonics to have a go at spelling them.  It's no wonder he had a stomach ache is it?


Today you're going to solve some addition problems to help the Very Hungry Caterpillar keep track of how much fruit he's eaten.


To solve these you can either count the fruit by touching them or count on from the first set of fruit to find out how many altogether.  Write an addition sentence to match each sentence.

Here's an example:

How many fruit did he eat altogether on Monday and Tuesday?    1 + 2 = 3


1. How many pieces of fruit did he eat altogether on Tuesday and Wednesday?


2. How many pieces of fruit did he eat altogether on Thursday and Friday?


3. Which fruit did he eat most of?


4. On which day did he eat four  pieces of fruit?


5.  How many pieces of fruit did he eat altogether throughout the week?


Have fun with this.  We look forward to seeing how you get on.
