Hello wonderful Willows!
Welcome to the celebration of your school and home learning. Thank you for keeping in touch. I love hearing from you all.
Hello wonderful Willows,
It’s time for another Fishy Story and it is one of my favourites too!
The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister
Have a listen:
Think and Talk
Did you like the story? What did you like best?
The Rainbow Fish’s scales ‘shimmer’. Can you think of any other words to describe the scales?
The rainbow fish is different from all the other fish. We sometimes call this being ‘unique’. Can you talk about what makes you unique or special? You could draw a picture of yourself and tell me how you are unique/special.
How did the Rainbow fish feel when the blue fish asked for one of his scales?
What did the Rainbow Fish do when no other fish would talk to him? How did he feel?
Who did the Rainbow fish go to for help?
How did the Rainbow Fish feel when he gave his scales away?
The Rainbow Fish gave away his ‘most prized possessions’. What is yours? Why?
At the end of the story, Rainbow Fish shows kindness. How can you be kind to others including your friends? Draw me a poster showing me how to be a good friend. Label it or write a sentence.
Explore the features of Rainbow Fish. Can you label him? (See the template below)
Can you explore the colours of the rainbow? You might enjoy these songs below.
Explore mixing paint to make the colours of the rainbow. How can you make orange, green and purple? Now that you’ve made the colours, can you make different shades of these colours? Try adding a little drop of white or black to the colours. What happens?
Have a go at the Rainbow challenge (see picture below) or make some new colourful scales for Rainbow Fish using the colours you have made. Are they light or dark shades?
Create your own foil rainbow fish painting. Can you use household objects to add texture to your fish? Add glitter if you are feeling really messy! See below for the picture and template.
Can you ‘Grow a Rainbow’? Follow the video below to grow your very own rainbow!
Can you have a go at creating your very own rainbow animal?
NumberBack to counting and ordering numbers this week! Use the resources below to help you. Remember to form the numbers correctly when you are writing them. There are different versions so choose the best one for you.
Can you remember the digraphs qu, ch, sh, th, ng? They have two letters but make one sound. Practise recognising these digraphs and blend them in words. Take a look at the bbc bitesize site to remind yourself of each sound. There are fun videos here. Simply scroll down to phase 3 and select the sound. Or I have attached the link for each sounds if you want to focus on one each day.
Practise your pencil control with the help of the resource below.
