Well done to Yahya for sharing his fantastic learning from home. I love your drawing of Agouti and the questions you have asked from the story 'The Curious Garden'. You used question marks at the end.
I am going to answer your questions in full sentences. Hopefully you can give me full marks Yahya?
1 . The main character was a little boy called Liam.
2. Liam wondered into an old railway station and stumbled upon a stairwell which led him up to the rail tracks.
3. He saw wild flowers and plants that were dying, he thought they needed a gardener.
4. Liam watered the plants and used his tools to keep it clean. Day by day they grew tall and covered the rail tracks.
5. There were new gardeners that were inspired by Liam's amazing work.
Today I want you read this hilarious poem by Josie Whitehead. The poem is called 'Laugh A-Lot Tree'. Read aloud with expressions. Can you come up with actions to remember the words? Have a go at drawing the tree using the description from the poem.
One beautiful morning on a bright summer’s day
Some children went out in their garden to play.
A new plant was growing, but what could it be?
'It’s too large for a flower. Perhaps it’s a tree.'
The tree seemed to grow at a very fast rate.
By lunchtime its top was as high as the gate.
Its leaves were all colours, not green like the rest.
Of all trees in the garden, it surely was best.
The children next morning quite soon left their beds.
There was fruit on the tree now of yellow and red.
'My goodness,' they said. 'What a wonderful treat!'
So they each picked a fruit and then started to eat.
They soon began giggling then laughing a lot,
But why they were laughing, they really knew not.
Said Father and Mother: 'Oh don’t be so daft.'
Then they ate some fruit and everyone laughed.
They decided they’d give this new tree a good name
For nobody else had a tree quite the same.
After thinking and talking they said: 'We agree,
We really should call it the Laugh-a-Lot Tree.'
From the stone from the fruit, another tree grew.
In a very short time there were more than a few.
Now think! If we all had a Laugh-a-Lot tree,
Well, how very happy our whole world would be!
Today we will read the rest of page one from 'The Tree of Life' book. I wonder what will Agouti find in the dark, deep forest.
How is Agouti feeling when he saw the marvelous tree?
What is he thinking as he stares into the giant tree covered with every kind of fruit?
Can you make some thought bubbles and feelings bubbles for Agouti and write few sentences to show his thoughts and feelings?
Today we are going to use tally charts to make pictograms. Instead of using numbers we can draw counters or pictures to show how many objects there are and represent data accurately. remember if you are using pictures to show data then you must draw them neatly in a evenly spaced line. Also they need to be same size and shape. Have a go at the challenges below.
You can log into purplemash and go to Tools > 2count to create your own pictogram. I did one about different kind of fruit that people like in my family.
Have a go at some neat join handwriting. Practice doing ir, ay as, er, an, on joins first. Then do single words carefully joining from bottom or top. Copy the sentences in your book. Remember we don't join from capital letters.
Listen to the musician playing a flute called Quenacho. It sounds really peaceful and touches your heart. Can you name the other instrument he is using? People in Amazon rainforest use trees and parts of a plant, seeds, shells to make different musical instruments.
