Literacy and Topic
- This week is Remembrance. Watch the CBeebies video below. Can you draw or make a poppy or poppy picture? Have a look at the poppy picutres below. Why are poppies important at this time of year?
- Following on from our story of Mouse Paint from last week, we will continue to learn about colours. We will look at some photos of rainbows. Can you draw or make a rainbow? Can you label the colours of the rainbow by using Fred talk and writing at least the first sound of each colour word?
- Listen to the story of Noah's Ark to find out why some people believe why rainbows appear.
- Learn the red word "!" Can you say some sentences out loud that have this word in? eg 'I am Tom'; 'I can hop'; 'I went to the park' 'Can I go out?'
- Can you read a simple caption that your adult writes for you? eg 'I am a dog/cat/hen/pig/bug/ant'
- Now can you choose one of the animals, above, draw it and then write the sentence 'I am a......' in a speech bubble?
- Last week we learnt to compare two groups of objects and say which had MORE and which had FEWER. Can you practise this again, using the words more/fewer in a sentence
- Ask your grown up to say a number less than 10. Can you tell them what "1 less" than that number is and then "1 more" than that number. Have a look on the number line (below) to see what happens when we find '1 less' and '1 more' than a number.
- Watch two episodes of Numberblocks (see below for the links). Number six and number seven.
- Make collections of 6 or 7 objects. Count them carefully. Count out 6 and count out 7 from a larger group. Don't forget to stop when you get to the number you should be counting out.
- Play some dice games. eg throw a dice (dotty dice) and jump/hop/clap that number of times. Or ask an adult to draw a track with about 20 steps. Take turns to roll the dice and move your counter the correct number of steps. Who can get to the end first?
- Ask an adult to draw a group of objects (eg apples/bananas), up to 10. Use your pencil to "mark them off" as you count so that you know exactly how many there are. Try this for different numbers. 'tagging' as we count helps us to know which ones we've already counted so that we don't count them twice!
