Phonics: This week so far we have been looking at the ‘e’ sound in phonics.


Let’s look at another sound today! Let’s look at the ‘u’ sound. It can be spelt in different ways.  These include u, oo and oul. Below are a list of words which all contain different spellings of this same sound.

How many sentences can you write using these words? Can you use more than one of the words in the same sentence?

Maths: Count forwards and backwards in 3’s starting from 0.

Yesterday we explored measuring using weight. Today we are going to explore measuring using length. To measure length we use ‘cm’ and ‘m’ (centimetres and metres). Gather lots of items from around your house. These could be hard things like a book or soft things like a teddy bear. Your job today is to measure these items accurately. Make sure you start your ruler at the 0 and not at the start of the ruler (depending on what your ruler is like). But before you do this, I want to you to use your skills of estimating. (Having a really good guess!) Make a table with the object, your estimation and then the actual measurement. How close can you get? Don’t worry if you do not estimate exactly correctly, that is the point of estimation. Hopefully the more you do the better you will be and the closer your estimations will be compared to the actual lengths.


Say your playground promise and sit and have a snack outside. 


Finally, you need to think of an ending.  What could happen to tie the story together? Here is an example. Sid the shark helped Molly to take the beautiful treasure chest back to the cave.  Luckily Molly forgave Sid and they all became friends.  Sid never took anything again and they all lived happily ever after.


Look back through your story mountain keep adding interesting openers/story language (Once upon a time, suddenly, unfortunately, surprisingly) adjectives to your plans. Have a go at retelling your story to someone in your house. Do they have any ideas of things you could add to make it even better?


Wash your hands and help your grown up to prepare your lunch.


Have a go at making your own character puppet by drawing your character on a paper/card, cutting it out carefully and sticking it to a lollipop stick or a straw (or anything you have available.) Have a go at creating a small world to represent your setting. (For example, gather twigs and leaves if it is in a forest.) Then use your puppets and your setting to practise telling your story aloud. Remember to use your story mountain to help you remember!
