Thank you Bats.
I have loved receiving all the pictures of your work this week.
Stay safe. Mrs Bradley
All of our work will be based around the familiar story of
'We'er going on a Bear Hunt'
I hope you have lots of fun and I can't wait to see you picture, photos and videos.
Send them to:
Have a lovely week.
English - Writing
This week we are going to make our own bear hunt story maps.
Share the story, and after spend some time talking about all the different places the family went to on their adventures.
Make a list of the different places, I'm sure an adult will help you and don't forget to use your sound mats from your pack or from week 1 learning page.
Once you have them listed creating the map is the fun part- here is a picture of mine to help you.
- Big Cat Books- https://collins.co.uk/pages/big-cat-ebooks
Follow the instructions to access hundreds of phonetically decodable fiction and non-fiction books which can be accessed on computers, tablets and mobile phones.
If you have some Phase 2 and Phase 3 (as shown on the sound mat pictures below), please continue learning these.
‘Phonics play’ have updated their website https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/
- Choose the correct phase of sounds that your child needs to learn.
- They are letting everybody log in for free and access all the resources.
In this weeks story, there are a lot of words which tell us about position, Under, Over and Through.
There are lots of words we use to describe the position of things, have a talk with your grown ups and see how many you can think of. Your grown up can write these down for you.
Once you have become familiar with these words play a game with your own teddy bear at home. Use a teddy bear to discuss positional language E.g. Hide the bear under a table and ask the children to describe where it is using the correct positional language. take it in turns to hide the bear and describe where it is.
Then Play a counting game that encourages use of positional language using a selection of sizes of small world bears (or other toys) and different boxes. Adult to ask the children to count out specific numbers of toys using positional vocabulary e.g. ‘Put 5 small bears under the box.’
How many bears are in this box?
Understanding the World
One of my favourite parts of the story is when the family have to wade through the sticky mud. So lets get messy with some gloop.
For this you will need:
1 small container (sandwich box)
3 large spoons of cornflour ( I got mine from Lidl, 79p)
2 spoons of water.
Food colouring is optional.
a selection of tools - fork, spoon, butter knife -
1. mix the cornflour and water together in the container.
2. when adding the water you can add a few drops of food colouring.
You can add more cornflour and water to make more gloop if you need to make more.
Can you think about words which would describe the gloop?
Using the things you have at home can you make a set of awesome bear spotting binoculars?
Can you make a list of the the things you used to make your binoculars?
What did you spot with your binoculars?
Build a Cave
Using pillows, cushions, blankets or towels and a helpful grown up build your own bear cave or hiding spot.
can you make a sign for it?
Who will be aloud in your cave?
What will you take into your cave?
How many people did you fit in your cave?
