Tuesday’s wonderful learning.

It is a gloriously sunny Tuesday morning, our learning will hopefully make the most of this.

If you don’t have a garden, don’t worry as you can do these activities either at home or on your daily walk.

Maths focus for today is based on our story focus of Jack and the Beanstalk. I would like you to draw around your feet and those of your families and measure them. You can either use a ruler (don’t forget your units of measurement) or you can use anything that is of an equal measurement in the house or garden. For example pencils, teaspoons, cans of beans, sticks, stones etc. I wonder who has giant feet in your family??? Make a prediction before you attempt the task.

My children and I have measured each other against the door frame to see who was the tallest, you could try this too. Again try and predict or estimate a figure.

Reception, I wonder if you could put on a show for your family acting out the story of Jack. See if you can recall the story in the correct sequence.

One final task for today is to visit your garden, look at the flowers, note down their features and research what they are called. For example, I have a plant that has shiny waxy leaves and big red buds on it. The flowers are large and have yellow stamen (the middle bit of the plant). It is a Camelia.

I would love to know what you have in your garden. If you do not have a garden, find something on your walk and do the same task, just remember to write what you see.

Please send me any lists you write, I would love to read them.

Other than that, enjoy the sun, make mud pies, sing and dance and come back tomorrow for more learning.
