Thursday 15th October -

End of the Week bubble closure.

 

Hello, how did you get on yesterday? I’d love to see your family pictures.

Today, your job is to use your real-life family members and put them in order from tallest to shortest. When you’ve done this, ask your grown-up to help you find objects from around the house to put in size order. There are some examples below.
Grown-ups, model lots of mathematical language: tall, taller, tallest, short, shorter, shortest, big, bigger, biggest, small, smaller, smallest.

 

Goldilocks and the Three Bears is the perfect story to help us learn about size and ordering. Follow the link below to watch the story on YouTube, then follow the next link to sing the Goldilocks song together. Encourage your child to join in with the actions for ‘big’ (stretching their arms as tall as possible), ‘small’ and ‘tiny’.
Hope you all have a fun day, let me know how you get on later.

Look at the families in the pictures below, point out similarities and differences with your child. 
Every family is different and unique but the one thing that is the same is the LOVE we have for the people in our familyπŸ’›

Ideas to try at home: What the Ladybird Heard.

Listen to the story read by the author, Julia Donaldson. Use the counting and sorting activities on Twinkl. In your garden or out on your walk, have a look to see if you can find any ladybirds (or any other bugs), try to take a photo to show your teachers, we would love to see what you find! 
Ask your child to retell the story to you, talk about what happens in the ‘beginning’, ‘middle’ and ‘end’ of the story. Talk about the characters and the story setting. Most importantly, have fun!
