I hope you are all well and happy. So far in school we have found out about the Diplodocus, Triceratops, T-Rex and Stegosaurus. This week we will discover everything we can about the Pterodactyl. (see links below for videos and ideas for drawing).
The maths and English lessons for the week are also uploaded below. The phonics videos this week are also just below. Have a good week.
Don't forget handwriting practice using the common exception words below as well as using the cursive letter formation powerpoint.
I hope you enjoy the content this week. Remember you can pick and mix the resources to suit you and your child.

Practise reading and writing these words in red book.
Week beginning 6th July - Literacy and Numeracy Activities
Literacy - This week we are looking at a selection of books about animals. On Monday we will look at the difference between fiction and non fiction by listening to a reading of Tigress. On Tuesday there is a book about polar bears to compare with the information about the tigers. The rest of the week is based on The Rainbow Bear by Michael Morpurgo. First we will find out about alliteration from the fantastic descriptive language in the book. Then on Thursday we will answer comprehension questions about the book and also make predictions. On Friday we finish the Rainbow Bear and decide what is fact, fiction or opinion.
Numeracy - The first three days this week are focused on bridging 10. First we are practising adding pennies and bridging 10. Then we are subtracting by bridging 10. Thursday and Friday are lessons focusing on time. First of all using measurements of time such as seconds, minutes and hours. Then we are practising telling the time to the hour and half past and making connections between analogue and digital clocks.
In computing this term we would have been starting to do coding. I have set a 2do on Purple Mash that is a great introduction to block coding called Fun with Fish. If the children get on well with this there is an extra coding activity called Snail Race.
It would be great if the children have a go at these activities. All is explained in the videos within the activity. For each challenge the children will watch a video that explains what they need to do. If anyone is having trouble accessing Purple Mash please contact school via email and we will advise how to solve any problems.
To continue our Grantham's Got Talent topic I would like you to find out about someone famous who came from Grantham. Her name was Margaret Thatcher. There are links to Ducksters website page about her and a Newsround video below. There is also a powerpoint attached.
Can you write a list of what Margaret Thatcher is famous for?
