Home learning activities week beginning 1.03.21

  • C&L & UW - With an adult talk about what you think firefighters do? What vehicle do fire fighters drive? What colour is it?

 

  • Literacy - Watch the YouTube link below of Mrs Walsh reading the book ‘Firefighter.

Have a go at answering these questions;

  1. What does Jack the firefighter have to wear? You can name any of the clothes Jack has to wear for his job.
  2. What does Jack fit on the ceiling in Mrs Patel’s house?
  3. How do the firefighters put the fire out at the school?

 

  • UW & PD - Watch the power point attached below all about fire fighters

Attached below is a cut and paste activity; dress the fire fighter. Don’t worry if you haven’t got a printer; draw your own picture of a fire fighter using the correct colours for their uniform.

 

 

 

  • Literacy - What is your favourite book or character from a book? Can you draw, paint, collage or maybe junk model your favourite character/animal from a book? It might be a butterfly from the very hungry caterpillar, or a dinosaur from Harry and the dinosaurs, your favourite Disney princess? Whatever it may be, I would love to see a picture of your creation.

 

  • Literacy & EAD - Using the attachment below can you design your favourite book character mask? Don’t worry if you haven’t got a printer you can create your own mask using a paper plate, card or paper and straws.  I can’t wait to see your mask designs. Mrs Walsh will have to guess who’s behind the mask!! J

  • Maths – can you order the people who help us pictures from biggest to smallest?  See attachment below.

 

Key vocab: Biggest, bigger, smallest, smaller.

Don’t worry if you haven’t got a printer, ask an adult to help you find some objects from around your home of different sizes. Have a go at ordering them biggest to smallest.

  • Maths – Counting buttons on a plate. Use 2 plates to explore the composition of numbers to 5.

Place some of your buttons on one plate and the rest on another plate.

 

 

                                                                      

 

How many buttons are on each plate? How many buttons do you have altogether? Can you use some bigger numbers than 5 to explore?

 

  • Maths – Ask an adult to help draw some numbers with chalk outside, the adult calls out a number and you have to squirt the correct number. Ask the adult to time you, can you beat your time on your next go.
