Literacy: LO: As a writer, I will be able to recognise and use rhyming words.

Re-read our story/listen to the story and look at sections of the book as you go along. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rl2uxhhBJ8I

What do you recognise about the story? Underline/write down the rhyming words of the story and discuss these further. Can you think of other words that can rhyme? 

Parents please could you model how to start making a list of rhyming words found in the story. (Year 1: List is underneath each other (can use bullet points)/Year 2: Commas used in a list to separate items).

Activity: Year 2: Children to list rhyming words found in the story using commas between each rhyming word. Can they add another 2/3 words to rhyme? 

Example: sea and be, dress and guess, etc.

Science: Which materials are waterproof?

In this lesson, we will be learning about waterproof materials. We will test a variety of household materials and compare how absorbent each of them is. You will need a piece of paper and a pencil to complete today’s lesson. For our experiment, if you would like to take part, you will need: twigs or a piece of wood, a plastic bag or cup, a glass cup, cardboard or paper, and a pair of socks or piece of fabric. If you do not have these materials, you can watch the lesson and record your observations of the experiment.
