Good morning everyone. Hope you had a good weekend and enjoying the sunshine. Well done Tayyibah and Amelia for working hard in Literacy and sharing your lovely work. I just want to remind you that Barbara and Amanda will be sharing assembly on our home learning page. So keep an eye on it and find out what they are sharing each week. Also, Mercedes has a music blog for you to do some activities.
I found this book called 'The Little Gardener.' Do you remember the book 'Wild' that we read in class? It is the same author who wrote this short story book.
I want you to listen to it carefully. What do you think is same or different between the two stories? What do you notice about the illustrations? How do the characters from 'Wild' and 'The little Gardener' compare?
Imagine you were a gardener, what would your garden look like? Can you have a go at creating your own illustration showing the garden. What kinds of trees, plants, flowers will you have? Can you write a description of your garden?
Today we are going to read some of page two from the book 'The tree of Life.' Do you remember what happened in the story story so far? If not then refresh your memory by going back to Friday's Literacy and read page one again. Here is page two.
For your challenge, I want you to do a role on the wall for Agouti. Draw this outline in your book.
Inside the drawing you can write about his thoughts and feelings after he has found the tree of life.
Outside you can write about what we know about him so far and what do others think of him, e.g. his brother and his friends.
This week we are going to learn some words to describe position, direction and movement.
For warm up, I want you to find a partner in your house, it could be your brother or sister or anyone who is around to help you. Use the words forwards, backwards, left and right to give your partner instructions to follow when moving around the house. Can you give them clear instructions so they reach the kitchen, garden or bedroom? Now have a go at the challenges below:
I have set you a challenge on Purplemash, Log in using your details or if you have forgotten it just use Y2 log in. Go to tools and find 2go program and work your way through the challenges. This is very similar to the Maths learning you have done today.
