I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather and have had lots of chocolate over Easter!
From Monday 20th April, BBC Bitesize will publish daily online lessons to help pupils expand their learning and to aid parents to engage children of all ages with learning at home.
If we were in school this half term, our Topic would have changed to Jungles and Rain forests. Twinkl have some great ideas and resources to support this topic! I have attached the Twinkl mind map of lesson ideas to refer to if you wish.
A nice idea for a Literacy lesson over a few days could be to research different jungle animals and make an information book/leaflet.
Lesson Ideas for Jungles
I have updated Education City and put lots more resources online for the children to access. Please also have a look at White Rose Maths online as this is what we follow in school and the children are familiar with it.
Our Science topic this term is Plants – I have set work on Education City. Also linked to our topic of Jungles and Rain forests, you could research animals that live in the jungle/rain forest. Think about where they live? What they eat? How they adapt to their surroundings? Etc.
Alternative pronunciations for ie and ea.
Examples of alternative ie = chief, field, thief, yield, shield, die, pie
Examples of alternative ea = head, deaf, ready, bread, heaven, sea, read, leaf
Also to practise reading and spelling the high frequency words thought, any, and saw (if the children were to sound these out to help with spelling then they could be spelt wrong, they need to recognise them from memory).
You could draw your favourite Jungle animal and colour/paint it. Maybe make a collage of a jungle animal or get some chalk and draw one outside on the pavement. You could look at the fur of a jungle animal and draw/paint the pattern on the fur.
PE with Joe Wicks every morning at 9am!
I hope this helps to give some ideas for home learning – take care and enjoy the sun!
