This week we are learning a new story this week- Bog Baby.   

*Watch Miss Churchward read the story and then re-tell it with your adult.  

*Brainstorm what Bog Baby looks like, where he lives, what he likes doing. You could write the words or draw pictures. A brainstorm isn’t in sentences, it is notes giving information. PDF link

*Use your brainstorm of ideas to write a character description for Bog Baby. For example “Bog Baby is blue. He is soft like jelly. Bog Baby lives in a wood. He likes to float in the pond.”  PDF link

*Can you draw a story map for Bog Baby?  PDF link

*Can you write a fact card about how to look after a Bog Baby? For example “A Bog Baby needs water (to drink). He needs food (to eat). He needs to live in a pond (in the woods). He needs to play.) PDF link

We need to learn to subitise. This means looking at an amount of objects and knowing how many there are without needing to count them. We can only subitise to 5. Watch these videos to help you learn to subitise. Feel free to pause the videos as you learn to recognise amounts.




Can you chant in 10s and 2s? Watch these videos to help you.

1. This half term we are learning about animals and their habitats.

There is a PDF link to the lessons for topic this week. Andy from Cbeebies is going to talk you through the lessons!

There are poems to read and pictures to look at.

*We are going to be learning about animals and their babies; the challenge is to play matching pairs and match the adult with the baby and learn the baby name.

*There are pictures and information on how farms have changed over time. How were cows milked a long time ago? Is it the same method now? What about shearing sheep? Did farmers use an electric razor like we do now?

*There are also fact cards you can learn with Miss Churchward using this video- https://youtu.be/UViuYCaZ4QE




2. The final 2 lessons are focussed on manmade and physical features of a farm.

Look at the pictures and discuss what things are made by humans and what things are natural and a physical feature? Then there is a cut and stick PDF to sort man made and physical features.
