Monday 23rd March

Good morning from Miss Packer! Here are today's Daily Five:


1. The Daily Five - Maths

We have been learning about 3D shapes. Have a look at the document below to see the names of the 3D shapes. Can you go on a 3D shape hunt and find 2 to match each one? 



2. The Daily Five - Literacy

First, go through the Phase 2 and Phase 3 flashcards (these are in the packs or you could use the document below). Then, in your writing book (in the pack) today:

a) Rabbits Group - draw a picture of what you have done today and label your picture with at least four labels, the help of an adult. I would like lots of detail and colours in the pictures! Remind the children to think about the correct colour for the face, hair and clothes etc.


b) Foxes Group - write two sentences about what you have done today. The sentence needs to start, 'First I...' and 'Next I...'. The children can copy 'first' and 'next', as we would eventually like those spelt correctly independently. The remainder of the writing can be done with guided support, like I described in the letter in the pack. Draw a detailed picture and label it.



3. The Daily Five - Outside Time

Today's challenge is to place a washing basket 1m away. How many times can you throw the ball into the basket in five minutes? Try again...can you beat that time!



4. The Daily Five - Project

This week's project is to use junk modelling materials to make a castle for Jack and the Beanstalk. You may like to start by looking at photographs of real castles to see the different features. The castle must have turrets and a door and it would be great to combine materials e.g. paint and tissue paper. 



5. The Daily Five - Reading

We have been learning a special version of Jack and the Beanstalk and learnt the words by heart. Today, use the document below to retell the story to an adult. Today's comprehension question is: "what do you think Jack was feeling when he got to the castle?" What other words can you use instead of 'scared'? Maybe draw a picture of Jack's scared face in your writing book!
