Good morning Class 2,
I hope you have a great Friday. Be careful on the ice!
Below are some learning activities for today.
|Main input||Link your instruction writing with your maths activity. Recap writing clear, short instructions. What will your instructions need to include? What will the layout look like?|
|Write brief instructions on how to play your fairytale board game.|
|SHOULD||Write instructions for setting up your board game. What will people need? Include instructions on how to play.|
|COULD||Create a video instruction guide for your fairytale board game. Remember to use bossy verbs and expression.|
|Extension Activity Ideas||Design a storage box to support advertising your games to buyers. Think about what you might need to include on the box – what details will buyer want to know? How will you make it interesting to buyers?|
|Learning Objective/Focus:||Design a board game linked to fairytales|
|Main input||Discuss making a game with numbered squares where you draw characters from fairytales- troll, wolf, little pig, gingerbread man and so on ( good and bad characters) on some squares but leave some blank with only numbers. Draw squares big enough to write in.|
|Use a dice and counters to move around the board. Write instructions on the picture squares to determine your move. Eg You meet a troll, jump back 3 squares. You land on Red Riding Hood, skip forward 2 squares.|
|SHOULD||Make sure your board game has at least 100 squares.|
|COULD||Add some number sentences to solve on certain squares. If the player gets the answer correct they move forward 2 spaces, if they get the answer incorrect they miss a turn until they get the answer correct.|
|Extension Activity Ideas||Make the background colourful- forests, cottages, palaces etc Add some chance cards to the game board. The cards must include a mathematical question which if the player gets correct they receive a reward stated on the card.|
|Learning Objective/Focus:||Representing differences in the four seasons|
|Main input||Using an A4 sheet of paper by folding in to quarters, design a poster of the 4 seasons. Remember to include names of the months in each section eg December, January and February in Winter.|
|Draw an illustration which corresponds with the season- bare trees and icicles perhaps for Winter. Add key events; Harvest, Christmas, Valentine’s day etc. in the appropriate season.|
|SHOULD||Make it colourful and think about “hot” and “cold” colours in your design.|
|COULD||Recite and try to write out the rhyme “ 30 days has September” from memory. Research the rhyme if you are unsure.|
|Extension Activity Ideas||Create a collage for your favourite season. Write an explanation for why it is your favourite.|
I look forward to playing your board games soon!
