Speedy sounds with Rosie


*** If you are writing your story today you do not have to do this session today. You will be using the sound grids to help with your spellings and so you are putting your previous learning into practice. If you have not been able to plan your writing activity do keep up with Rosie to keep your brain warmed up! laugh

Our Maths Learning Today...

 Today we continue our work on measuring. Yesterday you were measuring with cubes. Today you will be introduced to measuring with a ruler. If you have a ruler at home have a look at it and see what you notice, then watch our first teaching video for today...

 Yesterday you were counting the vertices on shapes. Today you will be asked to draw some 2D shapes. Thankfully there are squared boxes to help you on the worksheets; I thought we may have needed squared paper! Good luck. smiley

Before you start your afternoon's learning, I thought you may like to see a few more shoebox habitats. These were made by Arianna and Olivia. Super work girls!

Our afternoon book linked art activity


Good afternoon everyone! Here is Jonny Duddle, who wrote ‘The Jolly Rogers’ pirate book series and ‘Gigantosaurus’ book talking about his £1.00 book ‘Dino Spot.’ Jonny illustrates his own stories too, so you will hear how he collects his ideas. He draws a triceratops so you may like to pause his video and join in. OR I have a dinosaur drawing tutorial from illustrator Rob Biddulph. 
Enjoy listening to Jonny’s story ‘Gigantosaurus’ too. 😀🌟
And... there is also a competition to design a book gift card. I include the sheet on which you will draw your design. Perhaps illustrate your favourite book characters! Good luck.
