Activity Pack for Thursday 8th July
Here is another ‘phonics instructions’ video for you to have a go at (did you make the scotch pancakes? I did and they were delicious for breakfast!)
I used things I found in the garden for my spell, but you could use anything you like.
Then why not have a go at making your own spell? Don’t forget the magic words….
Have a look at the home learning sheet for some more phonic activities.
It’s fun to count larger amounts by grouping and counting in 10s. Practise counting in 10s:
10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100
You can do counting and sharing activities inside or outside, using any objects you like. Make sure you count one item at a time! Manipulating and moving objects in different ways is the best way to have lots of maths facts and information in your head! Then you can use your number knowledge to solve all sorts of maths problems!
Check the home learning information for some more maths ideas.
This has been our focus story for a few weeks now. I expect lots of children will be joining in, especially with the ‘fee fi fo fum’ part. There are some Jack and the Beanstalk activities to try in the home learning pack for Thursday. Just imagine if you had some magic beans. What might you find at the top of the beanstalk, and what would happen next? Who (or what) would you meet?
Creative activity based on ‘How to catch a star’
Watch this video telling the story of ‘How to Catch a Star’ by Oliver Jeffers, then have a go at doing your own creative activities based around this story using the videos underneath:
Now have a go at making your own galaxy in a bottle!
And finally create your own space picture:
Book illustrations can give you lots of ideas, especially for art work. If you can’t find all the ingredients in Timmy’s video, why not use what you have to create a scene or picture from a story? Then use your scene or picture to tell the story; or your own version!
Here is the great story, “Why is the Sky Blue?”, by Geraldine Taylor:
Good luck and have fun. See you all soon
