Tuesday 31st March

1. The Daily Five - Maths

Using either the analogue clock or your craft clock, read your child the Jack and the Beanstalk story (in the resources section below), stopping at the times sections so that they can make the times on the clock as your read. 

Throughout the week, make a conversational point of discussing the time e.g. "It's 12 o'clock and it is time for your lunch" or "You go to bed at 7 o'clock".



2. The Daily Five - Literacy

Ask your child to once again retell the Jack and the Beanstalk story in the 'resources' section below. That will help remind them.

Foxes Group - in your writing book, have a go writing the end part of Jack and the Beanstalk. This will be a challenge and will need adult support. 

Foxes Group - in your writing book, draw a picture of the three things that Jack stole from the giant (shiny gold, magic hen and singing harp), labelling the items. Remember adults...the words will not be spelt correctly ('magic' would be 'majic') and some children may only know the initial letter. 



3. The Daily Five - Outside Time

Using yesterday's Easter Egg drawings, your child can write numbers on the reverse. Foxes Group can write numbers 13 - 18. Rabbits Group can write 0 - 6. Now the adult can hide them in the garden. Your child needs to find the six eggs and put them in the correct order from smallest to largest. 



4. The Daily Five - Project

We are going to learn about friction. Using toy cars, allow your child to experiment with ramps at different angles. The ramps could be books, pieces of wood, baking trays etc. What angles make the car go faster? Try on different surfaces - is the car faster on carpet? Blaze and the Monster Machines is great for learning about science and there's a couple on forces and friction (on Amazon Prime or Nickelodeon). Here's their song about friction. 



5. The Daily Five - Reading

Keep going with revising the flashcards (either Phase 2 or Phase 3 as appropriate).

With adult support, read the Easter Biscuit recipe together (in the 'resources' section below) and make some yummy treats for the family. You could decorate with a pattern!
