Today’s story is ‘Cinderella’. Listen to the story on espresso and complete the quiz.
Now explore the games on phonics play to practice your reading.
For today’s writing activity, we would like you to draw picture of Cinderella and a picture of one of the ugly sisters. Then write some adjectives under both characters. Remember, adjectives are describing words.
- Think of a word.
- Say the sounds that you can hear.
- Write the letters down in sequence.
- Read your words to your grown-up.
Today we would like you to design a crown for Cinderella or the Prince. You could make a crown or just draw one. We would like the crown to have a colour or shape pattern on it. Think carefully about the colours and shapes you are going to use and make a repeating pattern. Here are some ideas:
You could also try this ‘Top Marks’ maths game to practise making patterns.
Topic – PSHE:
In the story, Cinderella’s step-sisters are very unkind to her. Today we would like you to think about why it is important to be kind to people.
Discuss with your grown-up ways to be kind and think about things that you can do to be a good friend when you are back in school.
Monday 13th July
Today’s story is ‘The Gingerbread Man’. Listen to the story and then answer the questions.
- Who are the characters in the story?
- Which animal does the Gingerbread Man see first?
- What does the Gingerbread Man say as he runs away from the different animals?
- How does the fox trick the Gingerbread Man?
- What words would you use to describe the Gingerbread Man?
- What words would you use to describe the fox?
Now read a book on the Oxford Owl website. Try to find a book where you can read most of the words yourself by sounding out words or clapping the letter names for tricky words.
Last week we wrote a speech bubble for the big bad wolf. Today we would like you to think about what the Gingerbread Man says in the story and write it in a speech bubble.
- Say your sentence to your grown-up.
- Sound out each word carefully.
- Write the letters down in sequence.
- Put a finger space between each word.
- Put a full stop at the end of your sentence.
Today we are going to solve some subtraction word problems. You might need some counting resources to help you do this such as counters or cubes.
- There were 5 gingerbread men in the box. A fox ate 2 of them. How many were left?
- The Gingerbread Man had 6 buttons but 4 fell off. How many were left?
- The little old lady had 10 eggs. She used 3 of them to make some gingerbread men. How many did she have left?
- There were 8 gingerbread men crossing the river. 5 of them fell into the water. How many were left?
Challenge: Write these word problems as number sentences in your work books.
___ - ____ =
To finish your home learning today, it would be great if you could make your own gingerbread people!
Help your grown-up to measure the ingredients and follow the instructions. We would love to see some pictures of your gingerbread people! I hope they don’t run away!
