We’re Going on a Bear Hunt
Many of you will be familiar with the well-loved tale by Michael Rosen but how would you like to take part on your own bear hunt? Simply leave a teddy bear in one of the windows of your house and when other children go for their daily exercise they can count how many different bears they can spot. Who will spy the most? I hope there isn’t too much squelchy mud!
Imagine how different your day would be if you were only 5cm tall. What would be the biggest challenges you faced? What adventures would you have? Maybe you would find new uses for different items around school or your house! This week your challenge is to write a story with a beginning, middle and end about the day you shrunk. Will things ever be the same again? Can you come up with a catchy title and create an illustration?
Please continue to use the White Rose Maths Hub lessons to guide your children through the next block of maths learning at home. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/. Although these are no replacement for our teachers they will help the children to understand new concepts and the worksheets and challenges allow useful practice.
The Maths Factor website, launched by Carol Vorderman, has interactive games and challenges for children of all ages. You can sign up for free and print your own certificates https://www.themathsfactor.com/
Whilst we are trying to encourage a variety of activities at home it is inevitable that children will be spending more time online. Please see these latest resources for talking to your child about staying safe online.
Activities to do at home
We know that you enjoyed our challenges last week and so this week we are going one step further with challenges for each phase. You can complete them together as a family and even have a go at the challenges for other year groups. Make sure to email your teacher to tell them how you are getting on and include a photo if you can.
Here is some of the fabulous baking from last week.
