“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.”
Learning Objective: Writes for different purposes.
Think about the King of Tiny Things and have another look at the story video. Remembering how you told someone in your family all about the story, make a story map of the story, like the example I have made. There is a beginning, middle and end but what happens at these points and in between? Draw some pictures and write some captions next to them.
Learning Objective: They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.
Draw or make a ladybird or a selection of ladybirds and put spots on their wings. You need to make sure that the number of spots on one wing is exactly the same as the spots on the other wing. Like the one below.
Understanding the World
Learning Objective: Can make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur and talk about changes.
If we had been at school this term, we would have grown our own caterpillars and watched the changes over the weeks and then towards the end of the term we would have released them on the school field with Mrs Huotari and Mr Langley. It’s a shame that we can’t do that but have a look at the video link to watch a caterpillar transform into a butterfly.
Record in some way how this process happens. Perhaps you could use some plasticine or play dough to make some models or just draw the stages.
