Literacy

Handwriting 

Watch the video below and look carefully at the formation of the letter 'o'. Using your finger and a tray of salt, sugar or sand, can you write the letter 'o' correctly? 

Write this letter on a piece of paper or alternatively complete the 'o' worksheet below. Have a look around your house, how many items can you find that begin with the letter 'o'? 

*Challenge* - can you write these words in your neatest cursive handwriting?

Oh no! The dinosaurs have removed some of the letters from Mrs Goodwin’s words! Which letters are missing? Challenge - for the last two, can you put the letters in the correct order to make a word?

Matching descriptive words to a character

Can you retell the story of 'The Gruffalo'? How many of our actions can you remember?

 

 

Add sound buttons underneath the words to aid segmenting and blending. How many words can you read? Can you match the descriptive words to my character drawings? 

You could draw a line from the descriptive words to the character.  Alternatively, you could cut out the character drawings and the descriptive words and stick them together on a separate piece of paper.

Maths

Estimating height

using lego, blocks, cubes, estimate how tall your dinosaurs are! (if you do not have dinosaurs you could use other toys)

How tall will the dinosaur be? 

Which dinosaur is the tallest/shortest? 

Smallest/biggest?

How many cubes taller is the tallest dinosaur to the smallest? 

Did you make a good prediction? How close were you?
