Please aim for 30 minutes (15 each) of handwriting and phonics and continue reading each day.
This week we are learning more about adding plural markers
-s and -es to nouns. Remember nouns are people, places, things, animals or ideas.
Plural means more than one.
For today's task practice spelling plural words by not looking. You can try the same with your spelling words.
English: Listen again to Super Daisy and the Peril of Planet Pea. Spell names of common vegetables. Plan to write and draw a comic strip similar in structure and themes to Super Daisy.
On the Planner, write down your super character’s name and the name of the vegetable planet that is threatening the Earth, e.g. Planet Cabbage.
- What does your superhero say?
Oh no! Planet Cabbage is zooming towards Earth!
- Decide what two things your superhero uses to fight the vegetables.
What does your super character say?
I’m going to use my super strength and my super bin to defeat Planet Cabbage.
- Decide what your super character says to the veggie planet and what the veggie planet says back.
Got you, Planet Cabbage! / Oh no, my plans are ruined!
Extra Challenge: Use your plan to make a comic strip.
Maths: Today we are learning about half past the hour. There are 60 minutes in one hour and half (1/2) of 60 is 30. This is why we call it half past.
Try these new words:
time, clock, hands, minute, hour, half past
Can you read the clock hands in your task to decide what time it is? When it is half past the minute hand (longer hand) is always on the 6 and the hour hand (shorter hand) is always in the middle of two different numbers.
Extra challenge: Draw your own clocks showing different half past times.
Art: Today we will be making beautiful sunflowers using a special art technique called 'printing.' We will use forks to help us do this. Grab a metal or plastic fork in your home.
If you don't have paint at home you can simply draw a sunflower and try different techniques using your coloured pencils.
You can try different flowers using the same printing technique. I can't wait to see your beautiful sunflowers. Have fun!
