Maths: This week we are looking at Halving. Have a go at the Subitising Game first to practise 'Use your eyes and subitise!' 

Mrs Grice has shared with you a Halving Maths lesson

Storytime: Today's story is shared with you by Emma - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnC6ubM2UpQ&t=2s

Guided Draw - Today's challenge is to follow the guided draw, using your blue exercise books.  We thought this guided draw is perfect to go with the story Emma has shared with you all.  https://vimeo.com/399653421

Understanding the World - To finish our Minibeast topic this term we thought you could go on a Minibeast hunt in your garden.  Please be very careful not to disturb them too much!  You could draw what minibeasts you find and write the name of them in your blue exercise books.  If you are feeling up to a challenge you could design a Minibeast home and then try to make it out of things at home.  Here are some ideas from The Woodland Trust https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/blog/2019/09/how-to-build-a-bug-hotel/

Literacy: This week's challenge: Can you make up your own Minibeast and write some sentences to describe it. Don't forget to give your made up minibeast a name. Here is a video of Miss Hardisty showing you what to do: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmcyO6Jpi6s

Wellbeing: We would like to create a 'Map of my Heart' this week. Think about all the different things you like and love about your life. You can give bigger parts to things you love the most. You can draw, paint, or create your heart in anyway you like. We would love to see your completed hearts. Here is a video showing you what to do? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIrWrUflm7c 

Please see below some continual activities:

Phonics: Practise the different sounds so far in the little green sounds book!  Practise letter formation.
