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.

Humanities

  • 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.

Expressive Arts

  • 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?

Hotseating-A Beautiful Butterfly

This week we have been using our drama skills to take on the role of the butterfly from ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar.’  The children thought of great questions to ask the butterfly and when in role as the butterfly, answered as that character. They did an amazing job!

Releasing the Butterflies!

Today we let our five beautiful butterflies go on the school field. They were a little nervous to begin with but once they got used to being outside they soon flew away!

Bug Hotels

We have been learning about the habitats of different minibeasts and finding out where different minibeasts like to live. We then went out onto the field and made bug hotels using boxes, tubes and natural materials.

Butterfly Life-Cycle Dances

We have enjoyed the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar and have been learning how caterpillars change into butterflies. We created dances to show the life-cycle at each stage.

St. David's Day

On Monday 1st March we celebrated St. David’s Day.  We dressed in national colours and costumes and we enjoyed a range of activities.

We played yard games outside, such as ‘cath, cath, ci’ and ‘Mae Siemon yn dweud’

We made St David’s Day cards to send to members of our family.

We completed activities on Hwb and some mindfulness activities relating to St. David’s Day.
