Chat on the Mat Time
Let's start today's chat on the mat activity with a game of 'what animal am i?' . Read the clues below, and guess what farm animal it is. Good luck.
1. I live in a sty. I roll around in mud. My baby is a piglet. What animal am I?
2. My baby is a duckling. Humans feed me bread. What animal am I?
3. I live in a stable. I run very fast. My baby is a foal. What animal am I?
4. I like to eat grass. I am milked in a barn. My baby is a calf. What am I?
Now, let's play a matching game. In your busy books, draw each item of food, and then next to it, draw where it came from. For example, draw the tomato, and the tomato sauce next to each other.
If your up for a super writing challenge today, can you write a simple sentence about one of the foods?
For example: milk comes from a cow.
Let's start today's maths activity by singing our counting in 10's song. Click on the video below.
Super singing! Today, we are going to solve money problems. You will need to switch on your take away brains, to help you find the answers. We will do the first one for you, to show you what to do.
"Sam's mother gives her 10p to buy her brother a banana. She buys a banana for 5p. How much change will she receive?"
So, we need to take away the price of the banana (6p) from the 10p coin to find out how much change Sam will need from the shop keeper. First, we circle the first number (10p), like this:
Then, we look at the second number (5p), and jump backwards this many spaces, like this:
The number it lands on, is the answer to the problem. So, 10p - 5p = 5p.
Now, its your turn, please complete this activity in your busy books.
Parents: draw the number line in your child's book to make the activity easier.
Top Tip: remember, we are taking away, so jump backwards on the number line.
After another busy week with our online learning, it's time for our weekly surprise time. Today, we are going to watch our new cartoon 'Big Barn Farm'. In this episode, the farmyard bunch play a game of hide-and-seek. Click on the video below, enjoy!
We hope you have a fantastic weekend with your families.
Don't forget, you can email your teacher whenever you would like.
We miss you all.
