Next week in English we will be learning about riddles.
See if you can find what a riddle is at home. Can you find a book that has some riddles in or maybe you could find some riddles on the internet. Why not write your own riddle and bring it in and show us.
In our English and Science lessons we have been learning all about different types of minibeasts.
For your homework this week pick an activity from the list below, don’t forget to bring it in and show your teacher what you have done.
Draw and label a picture of a minibeasts habitat. Go on a bug hunt in the park or garden and see what minibeasts you can find. Draw and label a life cycle picture of a butterfly, ladybird or beetle.
We were really impressed with all the home learning we saw last week, so are looking forward to what we might see next week!
Today we went to Ladywell park to look at common trees and flowers. We also talked about habitats and animals.
Look at the photos below.
What were we doing?
What did we find?
Next half term we will be exploring minibeasts and their habitats.
Over the half term can you find out interesting facts about a minibeast of your choice?
You could visit the library to research in a book, use the internet for research or ask someone at home what they know.
You could find out what they eat, where they live, what they look like and any other interesting facts.
You can choose how to present your information. Here are some ideas:
Make an information poster Write an information book Draw and label a picture of your minibeast
As our new topic is
Let’s Explore we have been looking at maps and atlases. We found the different continents on the world map and also found the different oceans.
Look at the map.
Can you find the continents and oceans?
Can you remember how to say them?
Yesterday we went on our local walk as part of our Let’s Explore topic .
We followed a simple map and identified some important buildings and places of interest. Some places weren’t on our map but we thought they looked interesting so we stopped to talk about them.
Look at the photos. Can you name the different places?
Over the past 2 weeks in Maths we have been pracitising a range of strategies for answering questions with all 4 operations.
Look at the operation signs below, can you name them? Can you tell someone what happens to a number when you do this operation (does it get bigger/smaller?) How can you write a number sentence with this operation?
We have been using pictorial representations to help us answer these questions and the number facts we already know. E.g a blank numberline, or drawing dienes.
Choose a number in the red circle, choose an operation and then choose a number in the green triangle. Can you make a number sentence?
*Challenge – Now choose your own numbers, or ask someone to choose some for you.*

This week we have been using money to problem solve. Look at the coins below, can you name them all?
Imagine you are going to the bakery. You have 1 silver coin. What items could you buy? What if you chose a different silver coin, what could you buy then?
Choose 2 items or 3 items from the bakery. How much would they cost altogether?
*Challenge* – Can you find change? Choose a silver coin and then choose an item to buy. Use an empty numberline to subtract the price from the amount of the coin.
E.g: Use the numberline to say the answer below.
Over the holiday, don’t forget to read lots. You could make a list of the books you have read and share them with your class when you get back.
Practise counting in twos, fives, tens and threes and try having a go at learning your times tables.
If you visit anywhere special, you could write about your visit, ready to share with the class when you get back. Don’t forget to use capital letters and full stops!
We hope you all have a restful Easter Holiday.
