After looking at 2's, 5's and 10's this week, I want you today to answer problems. These problems will require you to count in 2's, 5's or 10's to either find the total or to solve the problem.
Firstly I have a timetable game (which is the same as counting in lots of or in arrays). This will help you prepare for today's tasks.
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- every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 2pm

After looking at and describing either the crocodile or the vulture picture, today you are going to be creating a fact file on your chosen animal. This is similar to when we looked penguins and owls. Below is an example fact file.
Research your animal (the crocodile or the vulture) to get some more facts. Think about the animals habitat, food and their features.
Think about how you could link those facts into paragraphs with a subheading. The subheading could be a question like 'What do vultures eat?'
After grouping your facts, create a fact file on your animal.Each paragraph should have a few sentences including conjunctions to add detail like 'because', 'and' and 'or'. Remember your fact file needs a title.

Today you are going to be learning about something that is really important to me- water safety. As many of you know I like swimming with my swimming club but I also teach the children at my swimming club how to be safe around water. It doesn't matter how good you are at swimming you still need to be careful around water and know what you should and shouldn't do around water. I want you to watch the video below and then have a go at the activities to test your water safety knowledge.
