Wow Willows! You have blown me away with your home learning this week! Enjoy having a look at your amazing work. I am very proud!
Hello wonderful Willows!
We will be adventuring deep down under the sea over the next few weeks so grab your wetsuits and snorkels and join in the fun!
This week our story is Commotion in the Ocean. Take a look below:
Think and Talk
What do you think ‘commotion’ means?
Talk to your family about the things you learn about each creature-these are called FACTS. Write a sentence about the most interesting fact you learnt.
Which sea creature is your favourite/least favourite? Why?
If you could be one of the sea creatures for a day, which one would you choose? Can you tell me or write about your choice?
Did you hear the rhyme in the story book? Well done! Have a go at exploring rhyme at home-can you find items in your house which rhyme and match them? E.g sock and a clock, mug and a jug.
Or perhaps play the shark rhyming game in the resources below. Send me your rhyming pictures please!
Can you make a commotion? Perhaps you could have a go at making a commotion in water too! (Only if it is safe to do so!) Get out those hoses and sprinklers for some water fun! I would love to see some pictures of this. What would the commotion in the ocean sound like? Can you use your body or household items to make a commotion musical piece?
Choose a sea creature from the book to draw and research. What did you find out?
Take a look at the videos of the sea creatures. How do they move? Can you move like these creatures? Put on some music and have a dance and a jig like these sea creatures!
Can you invent your own sea creature? Can you draw a picture and label it? What special skills and features does it have? Can you write some sentences about it? Use the template in the resources if you wish.
Use playdough/modelling clay to make models of some of the sea creatures. Don’t forget to take a picture!
Get crafty and make your own sea creature-Take a look at these paper plate Jellyfish!
Practise your counting skills using the resources below. How many sea creatures can you find? Remember to practise your number formation too.
Have a go at some dot-to-dot colouring. Some are quite tricky so choose the one that is best for you.
Keep it up!
Please remember to read regularly to an adult and enjoy story time.
Practise your speed sound phonics using the slides on the weblinks below.
Use the slideshows to go through all the sounds. These could be written on pieces of paper and hidden round the house to find or use them as flash cards. How speedy can you read the sounds?
IXL-I’m logging you on to practise your maths skills. You will receive an email soon with your login details. Have fun!
Practise your letter formation and use the resources below if you wish.
