Day Two

Session 1: Wellbeing and English

 

 

English- Curly caterpillar letters and the suffix -ly

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrk6pg8

 

There are nine caterpillar letters in total.

They are: s, o, q, c, e, a, f, g and d.

 

They all start by looping from the top and then curl out.

Some of these letters have straight lines too.

 

Suffixes

A suffix is a letter or group of letters that attach to the end of a word and changes the word's meaning. An example of a suffix is -ly, which, when added to the end of a word, is used to describe a verb.

Watch the short video below to find out more.

 

Activity 1: Hunting for curly caterpillar letters

Take a piece of paper draw nine big boxes.

  • At the top of each box, write each of the curly caterpillar letters.
  • Go on a hunt around your house or garden and see how many items you can spot that start with each letter.
  • Write each item down in the correct box as you go.
  • Once you've finished you can decorate each box by drawing some of the items.

Activity 3: Writing pirate rules

Imagine you are a pirate.

Create a list of rules you always follow in order to be the best pirate in the world.

  • Make sure your sentences use capital letters and correct punctuation.
  • Use words that contain the suffix -ly to explain your rules.

 

Here are examples to help you:
Always dress smartly.
Walk the plank slowly.

Outdoor learning task numbers in French- can you make a hopscotch but say the number in French? 

Say the number in French and children must collect that many items. 

Can you make your own counting game using numbers in English?

 

Maths Activity 

  • Count to 20 altogether slowly…faster…even faster! (or in different voices…low, high, grumpy, excited)
  • Count around in a circle each person saying one number up to 20
  • Can we count backwards from 20 down to 1 altogether?
  • Show me these numbers using your fingers... 7, 4, 1, 3
  • Go and find five natural objects. Find a space. Order them from shortest to longest.
