Term 4 Jungle Animals
Hi lovely Acorns. This week our learning is about Jungle animals.
You can find the story I would have been using on You Tube
Walking through the Jungle
You can read this and the ask the children to change what the animals are doing.
Maths is subtraction, grab some objects, toys or animals if you have them. Pretend they are in a jungle and take them away. Write the number sentence on your white board
6 - 2 = 4 show this with the animals
You can do this with anything you have but counting out physically shows what is happening and then writing the numbers down while counting. Then get them to do some.
Modelling what you want the child to do at this age is key.
Have a look at where animals live and why they live there. Why do Polar bears live in the Arctic, and Lions hide in long dry grass, and snakes have patterns. Should be look after where animals live? Conservation and habitat.
A lot of this is discussion and things online. You could make animal patterns with paint or build animal shelters in the garden.
Term 4 Week 3
Wow! What a fab Science week we've had.
On Monday we learnt all about washing our hands.
Term 4 Week 2
This week we have read a lovely story called the Bog Baby. It is about a little creature who lives in a magic pond. It deals with issues about creatures and their natural environments and habits. It is also a lovely story and great for descriptive language.
Term 4 Week 1
We've had a great first week back. The children have come back full of enthusiasm and are showing great progress with their reading and writing. Its hard to believe where they started only a few months ago.
This week we have thought about Pancake day, tasted yummy pancakes and learnt about the Christian meaning behind the day. Thanks Miss Knight for the pancakes.
