Topic – On Safari in Kenya
Good morning everybody.
Today is an exciting day as we are starting our new topic ‘On Safari in Kenya’. Hmmm… what does Safari mean? Where is Kenya?
Let’s find out together.
You will need to get on an aeroplane to visit the country of Kenya. We live in the United Kingdom which is in the continent of Europe. Kenya is a country in the continent of Africa.
I wonder how many continents there are in the world?
Now we know where we are going to, I wonder if Kenya looks the same as the United Kingdom. Let’s find out 😊
What animals did you see? Where were they living (their habitat)? Why was there so much sunshine?
Most animals live in the grasslands but some live in the forest and water areas as well. It is warm all year round in Kenya which is why there is so much sunshine.
When people go on holiday to Kenya they want to see these animals in their habitats. People do this by going on safari in an open topped car with a guide to show them the best places to see the animals.
Now we know where Kenya is and what we expect to find there, we’re off on our journey. You will need to pack a suitcase with the things you might need to go on safari and remember to pack clothes that are suitable for the weather in Kenya. I have given you some suggestions but you can always draw your own ideas.
This week’s story is all about a girl called Handa who lives in a village in Kenya.
Now can you match the animal to the fruit picture that they stole in the story and put them in the order that the animals appeared in the story?
Then, think of an adjective for the fruit e.g. juicy mango, sweet pineapple etc. You can write your adjective next to the fruit or write your own sentence or just talk about your ideas with your grown up.
Doing this will help you with your tasks over the next few days so be sure to keep them handy!
Let’s start our lesson with our warm-up to recognise our sounds and tricky words. If you already know all your sounds and tricky words, you can skip this bit.
Today we are learning another way to pronounce a grapheme.
Word of the day
Today’s word of the day is …
Remember you can practise using it in your sentences when you are writing or put it on a piece of paper and display it around the house to practise reading or even challenge your family to see who can spell it from memory the fastest!
Today we are going to start our lesson by counting in 5’s. This can be a bit tricky at first so you might find it easier to follow the pattern on a 100 square at the same time.
Do you remember yesterday that we learnt about different 3D shapes? Why don’t you watch this song and remind yourself about what the shapes are called.
Today we are going to be sorting the shapes into groups.
The wire gymnastics club have some great activities to get you moving. Why not join in with them below.
That’s another great day of learning at home completed. Well done everybody. See you tomorrow,
