Practice reading your phase 3 tricky words quickly: he, she, we, me, be, you, all, are, her, was, they, my. Remember you can’t sound out tricky words – you just need to learn them as a whole.

Literacy

 

Listen to the short poems ‘Caterpillar’ and ‘Ladybird’ (from 2 minutes 40 seconds) again and identify the rhyming words.

You could underline the sounds that are the same in the rhyming words. Are the same letters used to make the sounds?

Maths

 

Today we are focusing on finding halves. Create your own ladybird template like the one below to help you find halves.

Picture 1

Remember, to find half of a number we have to share the total equally into 2. Collect some loose parts like counters, pieces of pasta, counting objects or make your own black circles to be spots.

You will need to share the ladybird’s spots equally onto the 2 wings and then count the spots on one wing to find half.

E.g. find half of 6
Picture 1

Half of 6 is 3

Add the total number of spots onto the ladybird and use them to find half.

 

Half of 4 is

 

Half of 2 is

 

Half of 10 is

 

Half of 16 is

Dance break of the day

Sing-a-long song of the day

 

Incy Wincy Spider

 

Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the water spout,

Down came the rain and washed the spider out,

Out came the sunshine,

And dried up all the rain,

So Incy Wincy Spider climbed up the spout again.
