Welcome to the website of Ruardean Church of England Primary School, Gloucestershire. Mr Manning, Headteacher

Summer week 2

You are amazing!

Take a look at some of the skills and things you have been learning or exploring this week.

Hello my lovely bunch.

This week I thought we could explore butterflies

as well as continue to enjoy our "Very Hungry Caterpillar" story.

Have fun!

Suggestions for learning

- ideas in bold would be really helpful but don't worry if it doesn't fit in with you at home. 

Literacy and Our World

  • Watch and listen to the story on YouTube (scroll down for the video)
  • Listen to the story read by Eric Carle, the author ( scroll down for the video)
  • Look at the book of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" - can you make a wool caterpillar to thread through the holes in the fruit?
  • Use the pictures from last week's resources to order what happens -  make your own story map? (see resources below for examples)
  • Practice your set 2 sounds from below
  • Play some of the phonics games below (see resources below)
  • Hole punch into different card fruits that you have drawn.
  • Make a necklace of hole punched foods that you would like to eat on a Saturday. Write the first sound for each food on them.

Maths and Our World

  • Use lego or blocks to build a bug. Can you use a number up to 10 or 20 blocks to make a bug? Can you draw it or take a photo and write the number of blocks you used? Can you choose a number between 1-20 first? What number would you have if you took one away or added one more?
  • Make a butterfly by only painting half of it. Put 4 spots on the wing and then fold it over, press it down and open it up again. What do you notice? Can you make a butterfly with 6, 12, 18 spots?
  • Use chalk to write numbers on the ground outside. Jump onto the different numbers. Can you move like different bugs to match the number? e.g. jump 12 times like a grasshopper, wriggle 3 times like a caterpillar, flap your wings 15 times like a butterfly.
  • Throw a hoop or a rope / string in a cirlce onto the lawn / path etc. Estimate how many daisies, stones, plants, leaves are in the circle. Count them

Other Bits and Bobs!

  • Butterfly watch. Use the guide in the resources list below to tick off the different butterflies that visit your garden. 
  • Make a butterfly hide to watch from - how will you make your den?
  •  Make a butterfly puddle station - see resources below.
  • Make a butterfly sugar station - see resources below
  • Use natural resources like petals, leaves, twigs etc to make a butterfly. Take a photo and send it to me!
