Good morning everybody,
It's looking bright so far, fingers crossed it stays that way. Yesterday, we made it to the pond for the afternoon at school and we were not disappointed. We found pond skaters, water lice, a baby newt, water snails, and lots of little flying things. We had a super time and were delighted to find empty dragonfly nymph cases (pupa of dragonflies) - they looked just like they were alive - have a look below. They were incredibly delicate and fragile, but amazing. I wonder if you can find any. Have a lovely weekend.
Letters and Sounds
Practise your letters using flash cards on Phonics Bloom.
Now it's time to write the last clue for your minibeast brain teaser. Today it is up to you what clue you give. You might want to say something about the way they act, where you often see them, any sounds they make, if people think they are scary, if they work in groups together, if they produce anything we can eat - look up your bug and find an interesting fact. For example "I like to make honey in a hive" or "I like to work with my friends to carry things" or "I like to flutter through the air and land on a flower" - anything you like. Have your sound mat and adult with you, decide on your sentence, say it a few times together and then sound out each word one at a time and write it down. I must say that many of the children at school have really enjoyed this - they have been making difficult clues and trying to trick the reader out.
Don't forget to test it out on a family member when you have finished it and send it over to me too and I'll see if I can work it out. Have fun.
Watch the Oak Academy Friday maths video. Today it is revising a lot of the measuring activities and vocabulary from earlier in the week. Really good if you missed a few of them.
Have a look at the website to see Sport Dave's PE video. In fact there are two today and they are both about improving your tennis skills.
Also, why not try the lego challenge and send it in. It's about building the thing that you would like to be doing - Mr Woolley has built a swimming pool - take a look.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
