Good morning everyone!
Today is Thursday 4th February. We hope that you are all enjoying the learning challenges that we have set this week. It has been great to see all the home learning that you have been completing at home.
We are going to start our day with our morning exercise. This will help wake you up and get ready for the day ahead. Click on the link below to start.
Today we would like you to watch Mr. Tumble tell the story of The Three Little Pigs. He uses Makaton signing to help him retell it. Watch carefully and see if you can remember any of the actions.
The story is slightly different to the one you listened to at the beginning of the week. We would like you to discuss this with a grown up. How is the story similar and different? What are the pigs names? Can you sign their names?
In the story above, the Three Little Pigs make different food. The first pig makes a pie, the second pig makes a sandwich and the third pig makes cakes.
Today we would like you to make yourself a sandwich for lunch. The first pig likes his sandwiches to be a rectangle shape. The second pig likes his sandwich to be a square shape and the third pig likes his sandwich to be a triangle. Your challenge is to cut your sandwich up so that you make all of these shapes.
What food could you have with your lunch that is a circle shape? Maybe you could cut up cucumber or bananas or maybe have a biscuit. Enjoy your shape lunch!
Knowledge and Understanding of the World.
In our story this week the Three Little Pigs use different materials to build their houses. The Big Bad Wolf blows down the house of straw and the house of sticks because the materials they used are not very strong. He can not blow down the house of bricks.
Your challenge today is to find 3 different objects of varying weights. We have chosen a piece of cotton wool, a plastic brick and a book. Place the objects in a line. Now you are going to pretend to be the Big Bad Wolf, and you are going to huff and puff as hard as you can to blow the objects. What happens to the objects?
Which of the objects below moved the furthest? Which object didn't move at all? Why do you think the cotton wool moved the furthest? Why didn't the book move?
You could also try using a hair dryer to blow the objects. Ask a grown up to help you. What happens when you use the hairdryer? You could take a photograph or draw a picture of your learning. Have fun, 'huffing and puffing!'
