1. The Daily Five - Maths
There's lots of unusual fruits in Africa, have a look at today's PowerPoint to see. We would usually taste some of these fruits but instead, we are going to make a fruit salad! Make a fruit salad together - we would teach the children to use proper cutting knives rather than table knives, as this is usually safer with supervision.
Next the children can buy their fruit salad - it is 10p per tablespoon!
Foxes Group - know how to count in 10s to 100, so they could use 10p or make the amount with different coins.
Rabbits Group - make the amount with pennies.
2. The Daily Five - Literacy
Make your own safari tickets - include a price label. Your child may need help writing and placing the '£' and 'p' symbol in the correct place.
3. The Daily Five - Outside Time
Go for a walk or bike ride - stopping at approximately one mile, two mile, three mile (whatever your child can manage!). It is 7,765 miles from Weare Academy to Cape Town in South Africa (there's a route map in today's PowerPoint!). Can Miss Packer walk to Africa?
4. The Daily Five - Project
On safari, we might be lucky and see lots of African animals. Make an animal mask, using the template in the resources section.
5. The Daily Five - Reading
Use a timer (this one is quite visual for the children). Using their digraph flashcards, how quickly can they read them? Have another go and see if they can beat their score.
