We have discussed how we travel to school and how this has an impact on the environment. Please follow the link above to see our class block graph. We discussed the results and ways we could help the environment by possibly walking to school if we live close enough.
If you are unable to come to school for COVID-related reasons, please complete this work and email it to us.

This work can also be completed if our class bubble has to be closed. More work will be posted within 72 hours of the closure.
Mathematics and Numeracy
Collect a range of different sized sticks in your garden. Can you measure them in standard units such as centimetres? Can you measure them in non-standard units i.e using pieces of pasta to measure?
Can you draw around your hand? Pretend it’s the giant’s hand. Estimate how many kidney beans the giant could fit on his hand?
Can you log on to TTRockstars and practise your times tables?
Can you practice writing your number formation 1-20?
Can you learn your number bonds to 10? I.e. 0+10=10, 1+9=10, 2+8=10, 3+7=10, 4+6=10, 5+5=10, 6+4=10 etc.
Language, Literacy and Communication
Write a diary – think about what it may be like to be a giant for the day. What would you do? Who do you live with? How might being a giant be different to being a child?
Draw a picture of Jack and colour it in neatly. Think of as many different adjectives (describing words) as you can to describe Jack and write them down. Can you do the same for the giant? How are they similar and how are they different?
Questionnaire – Think of questions that you would like to ask the giant if you were to meet him. Write each of your questions down or maybe an adult could scribe them for you. Don’t forget to use a capital letter to start your question and a question mark.
Create a map of Jack’s village, where the house was, the market and the beanstalk.
Could you also create a map for the land of the giant and include your own key features.
Create your own beanstalk. It could be a painting, a collage or even a model. Be as creative as you can!
Health and Well-being
Play a board game with a member of your family. Maybe you could create your own game?
Today, we released our four beautiful butterflies. As we have looked after them so well, they didn’t want to leave us, but soon flew away. We are going to use our good looking eyes to see if we can find them flying around the Quad tomorrow.
Take a look on our Foundation Phase facebook page to see the videos.
Today, we were very lucky to have a visit from Dina. She is a headteacher from a school called Dina School. She was very impressed with how well we all behaved and asked Miss Davies to give us all a sticker!
One of her pupils called Wally is coming to visit us next week and we are very excited!
The butterfly from the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ was very impressed with our investigation skills from last week. He really liked our idea of making bug hotels for the minibeasts to live safely in, in our outdoor area.
We are very excited to see what minibeasts decide to live in our bug hotels.
