Today in maths you are going to be revisiting 3D shapes: their names and their properties.
Follow the link below to the Ruth Miskin phonics channel on YouTube. There will be a video uploaded, one sound per day (which is a recap of sounds taught) and this video will be available for 24 hours. There will also be a following spelling session for your child to test their phonics knowledge. It is important that you do both sessions.
Storytime- will not commence again until July. I will keep you updated about the return of story time.

Continuing with our theme of stories today's story is called Stanley's Stick written by John Hegley.
Listen to today's story using the link below:
I want you to go out and find a stick. It can be big, small, thin, or thick. It is your choice.
I want you to turn the stick into something else like Stanley does with his imagination. You might want to listen to the story again for ideas. Don't forget to name your stick!
Now that you have your own stick I want you to imagine what you might do with your tstick and write a story about one of your adventures.
Linking to today's story I would like you to create a stick raft.
How to make a stick raft
You will need:
- 4 sticks of equal length
- sticks to strap in the middle of the raft of similar length
- long pieces of grass
- 1 large leaf for a sail
- 1 stick for the mast
Step 1- Lay the four equal sticks in a square. Make sure that the sticks are over lapping each other.
Step 2- Wrap a long piece of grass around each corner to hold the sticks in place.
Step 3- Once your frame is fixed together, fix each stick to the frame using more pieces of long grass to make the base of the raft. There will be gaps.
Step 4- Slot the stick your chose to be the mast in between the base sticks and attach your leaf sail.
Step 5- Wrap grass around your mast to fix it into place.
Your raft is now ready to sail in a stream or on a big pool.
Remember to stay safe near outdoor water sources.
