Good morning everybody! Happy Thursday!
I hope you are ready to be creative and enjoy some craft activities. Today I thought it would be nice to do some penguin craft activities. You can either make a penguin using card and cotton balls or paint an egg carton, or do both! Below I have added a video for each craft to show you how to do it. If you choose to make any other penguin crafts, please send in your pictures for our class page.
Today I would like the children to practise writing their name using the correct letter formation. Following on from that, we are going to practise forming the zig zag monsters letters correctly. Please encourage your child to look on the attached document to see where they need to start to write the letters. You can practise writing the letters on a whiteboard, on paper, in salt, glitter or finger paint.
Recap ee, or and oa. Can your child remember one word containing each digraph?
Next, we are going to revisit the ow digraph. The ow digraph can make two different sounds, but today we are going to practise ow as in the word blow. We will look at the other sound another time. It is the same song and action as oa.
Time to warm your brains up, get them ready for working and see if you can answer my questions.
We are going to have another look at halving a number of objects into 2 equal groups. Practical activities are a great way to help the children understand this concept. Please have a look at the home learning challenge attached. This does not need to be printed off.
