Monday 11th May
This week's challenges will be based on Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
Phonics: Please keep practising your phonics every day and continue to work through the Phase 3 sounds at your own speed. There are some new Phase 3 resources in the English and Phonics folder below.
Reading: It is important that you continue to read every day. Try reading ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ with your mum or dad so you know the story really well. Sound out some of the words by yourself. Can you join in with parts of the story that you know?
Drama: Could you act out the story using the role play masks? Could you retell the story using the stick puppets or small world characters? Goldilocks feels bad about what happened - she wants to invite the bears to a tea party to say sorry - could you act this out with some of your teddies? Do you have different sized cups, bowls, plates?
Writing: Can you use descriptive words to describe the characters or items in the story? For example, 'Daddy bear's chair was too soft.' How did the bears feel when they found out that someone was in their home? Could you design a ‘Wanted’ poster for Goldilocks? Could you write out a tea party invite from Goldilocks to the bears to say sorry? Get mummy or daddy to take a photo of your writing and send it to me or put it on EExAT.
Maths: Keep practising writing your numbers to 20. Try some number sequencing or the addition and subtraction problems. Are you able to cut out some of the pictures and order them in size from smallest to largest? Can you find items from around your house and sort them into size order? Ask mum or dad to hide the numbers 1-20 around the house and then you have to try to find them - once you have, can you put them in order from smallest to largest? If you want a challenge, could you order them largest to smallest? Email me a photo of you working or upload it to EExAT.
Understanding The World: Try the Gummy Bear experiment or investigate what makes a bed comfy. Look at the Bears Photo Powerpoint - could you use the internet with mummy or daddy and find out where the different bears live?
Art & Design: Using some boxes or old cardboard, could you design and build a new chair for Baby Bear? Test it out with one of your teddies. Send me a photo of your creation.
Lucky Dip: Surprise me! Send me a photo or video of you learning to do something that I wouldn't expect!
Good luck and have fun!
