Today's learning challenge - Friday 1st May 2020

We have been looking at lots of creatures with wings this week, bees, butterflies and today we will be looking at garden birds.

Sing this song with your grown up to get started!

(Sing to the tune of 'Here we go round the Mulberrybush')

 

My UK Wildlife Garden Birds

Watch the video below to find out which garden birds you might see today!

Are you ready to do some bird spotting?  You can either watch from your window or sit in your garden...but remember Shhhhhhh! - be quiet.

Use the bird spotting sheet below to record the birds that you see. Tick the box when you have seen the bird.

It is important to look after the birds that visit our garden. 

We can leave them food on our windowsills, in our gardens or you might even have a bird table at home in your garden to leave them some food.

 

We would like you to make your very own bird feeder. 

They can be very simple to make and you do not need a lot of things to make one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By using cheerios, pipe cleaners, string, fruit, egg boxes, toilet rolls and peanut butter.

 

You can make these fabulous bird feeders!

Today's learning challenge - Thursday 30th April

We would like you to listen to the story below.

Try to follow the words with your finger and see if you can spot any 'tricky' words!

The Cautious Caterpillar

Can you listen to the story. Remember to listen really carefully so you can answer the questions afterwards!

Did you enjoy the story?

Now have a go at answering the questions on the cards below.

Here is our learning challenge for today!

Wednesday 29th April.

We are going to carry on our learning about Bugs, Bugs, Bugs! 

Today there is one particular bug that we are going to be interested in.  It's black and red and it has got spots... Have you guessed what it is?

 

It is a ladybird!

Ladybird Minibeast Adventure

Watch the following video to find out more information about Ladybirds!

Now watch this power point about Number Doubles to take our learning further!

We are going to think about the spots on a ladybird to help us to play a number doubling game. 

All you need is a dice, counters and a ladybird picture. 

Make sure your ladybird has two separate sides like the picture below.

To play the game you will need to roll the dice. 

If you scored a 5, then you will put 5 counters on each side of the ladybird.

Now add how many counters you have got altogether, the answer should be 10.  Double 5 is 10.

 

Keep trying with all of the different numbers on the dice.  You could be really creative and finger paint the spots onto your lady bird.

When you are an expert you can have a try at some of the work sheets below.

Have a try at the number doubles below!

Now, think about what your own favourite mini beast is.

Can you research your favourite mini beast and find out some interesting facts!

We would like you to now make your favourite mini beast.  

You can either draw or paint a picture of it.  Or you could make it from craft materials.  

Remember to think about what body parts your mini beast has.

How many legs does it have?

Does it have wings?  How many wings are there?

What shape is the body part?

What colour is your mini beast?

 

Please take a photograph of it and and it to us.  We can't wait to see them.  Have fun!
