Monday

LO:  To be able to write for different purposes. (instructions for how to look after your pet reptile/ tortoise/snake etc)

Ask your child to read the LO – discuss what this means.

Activity:

Show your child the power point about caring for your pet – make sure they listen carefully.

Look at some leaflets from the pet shop about caring for animals including reptiles.

Discuss the things we need to know if we own a pet. What they eat, what they drink, what their bed should be like, what vaccinations they need, vitamin supplements, how warm or cold they need to be, how often they should go to the vet, if they need to be cut, nails trimmed etc.

This week, we will be creating our own leaflets about how to care for our pets.

 

Activity 1- talk together about what needs to be in a leaflet- adults and pupils writing down some heading’s ideas, what do we want it to look like, what should be on the front, what words, what pictures. (adults to scribe ideas if need be)

Activity 2- handwriting and letter formation of the wards, food, drink, home, habitat, vet- write full name first to practice.

Activity 3- Matching pictures of food, drink, home to the words (see resources).

Challenge

Think and discuss other types of animals – do they all need the same things?

Today we are going to look at a part of maths called measure and the part of measure we are going to look at is Length- do you know what length means?

Activity:  today we are going to measure some things inside and outside using nonstandard lengths -we could use anything to measure but we can only use one thing at a time .

You can choose from 4 things: a piece of lego, a pencil, a snake or a card hand print for example.

Activity

Finally discuss who do we feel in school and at home we can talk to when we feel sad.

Tuesday

English

LO: To be able to use lower case and upper-case letters in the right place.

Today we are going to begin writing our special leaflet about how to care for a pet reptile- but to do this well we need to know how to use capital letters (upper case) and lower-case letters correctly. Show your child the alphabet mat with both types of letters on it.

Listen to a song about capitals- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3g2gqt2TpA

When we begin writing our special leaflet we need to use capitals at the beginning of our sentences and at the beginning of countries as we may write about them in our leaflet.

Activity:

Activity 1 - Write title for the leafle, place a picture on the front too, start the first page about what to feed your reptile, then continue on the next pages over the next few days- focusing on capital letters in the right place and full stops at the end of sentences.

Activity 2- Practice writing capital and lower-case letters.

Challenge

Can your child write their own sentence with all punctuation correct independently?
