Our Google Classroom opens Monday- Friday 9:00am- 4:30pm. Thank you for always remembering to be polite on there! Just a polite reminder, I won't be checking emails/ Google Classroom on a Monday but I will always return your messages ASAP.
For those children who I was able to see on zoom, it was so lovely to see you and see some of the fantastic work that you have been doing. I hope you enjoyed our meeting as much as I did.
I am missing you all- please stay happy and safe.
Walking through the Jungle by Julie Lacome
Imagine that you were 'walking through the jungle', what animals might you see? Use the worksheet to help you to write some sentences about your adventure.
This week our maths unit is money. We would like the children to continue to recognise coins and use language related to money, in practical contexts. I have uploaded some sheets for you to have a go at too. It's also always a great idea to use money in a practical context when you go shopping, I know this is difficult at the moment, so you could role play shops instead.
The maths vocabulary we would like you to focus on is:
money, coin, penny, pence, pound, price, cost, buy, sell, spend, spent, pay.
Have a look at the jungle challenge sheet and have a go at some of these challenges. I would love to see your work via email or uploaded onto our google classroom.
Our topic for this half term is Animals! Our learning will be based on the following books:
We will be using the following books to help us with our learning:
What the Ladybird Heard- Julia Donaldson (Week 1)
Mr Gumpy's Outing- John Burningham (Week 2)
Dear Zoo - Rod Campbell (Weeks 3 and 4)
Walking Through the Jungle- Julie Lacome (Weeks 5 and 6)
Handa's Surprise- Eileen Browne (Weeks 7 and 8)
Please try to have some choosing time outside each day so that you get some fresh air. You do not have to complete all of these activities and if you have your own ideas that you would prefer to do then that is completely acceptable for choosing time but I do hope that you will find this list useful.
