Learning Activities for Today

Good Morning,
I hope you had fun yesterday.

Thank you for continuing to share your wonderful learning with us. We love seeing what you are doing (including your own ideas and activities) so please do keep emailing examples in (scans, photos, videos) and we will get back to you with some feedback about your learning, sometimes including some next steps or questions.

Below are some learning activities for today.
Learning Objective/Focus: To write the middle of a story.
Main input: Talk about what happens in the middle of your chosen story. Think carefully about what has happened, why it happened and how you might describe the events.
Activities: MUST – Draw a picture for the middle part of the story.
SHOULD – Write the middle of the story.
COULD – Use finger spaces, full stops and capital letters for names and the start of sentences.
Extension Activity Ideas: Create your own shop. Give your shop a name and make a shop banner. Write labels and price tags for the items in the shop.

Learning Objective/Focus: To find all the facts of a fact family.
Main input: You have now explored finding different addition and subtraction facts of a number, including writing the facts in different ways (e.g. 2+3 = 5 and 5 = 2+3). We call these fact families because they are all related to each other.
Activities: MUST – Can you find the fact family for these three numbers?
Remember to find the addition facts and subtraction facts. Can you record them all?
SHOULD – Choose your own 3 numbers (10 or below) and find the fact family.
COULD – Choose two different numbers that add up to make 4. Can you write the facts? Now choose 2 different numbers and write another fact family. What happens if you choose two numbers that are the same? How many number sentences can you make then?
Extension Activity Ideas: Practice counting to 20 forwards and backwards and starting from any number.

Foundation Subjects
Subject: Physical education
Learning Objective/Focus: To aim at a target.
Main input: Create a target with different points for each area. This could be done using hoops or buckets or even chalks.
Activities: MUST – Throw a ball 3 times to hit the target. What is your highest score?
SHOULD – Aim at the target from further away. What is your score?
COULD – Make a smaller target. Can you score the same as on the larger target?
Extension Activity Ideas: Use a skipping rope and practice skipping. How many can you do?

Have fun and enjoy.
