Good morning everyone! I hope you are all having a great week so far!
Let’s get our bodies and brains starting to work with a Wake Up Shake Up session.
Wake Up Shake Up
Magic words – this activity can be completed by all of the children. For children needing a challenge use words that include special friends that the children have recently been taught.
You will need to prepare your paper towels. Do this by taking a square of paper towel and folding it in half. Then cut the paper towel so you end up with a small square with another small square behind it.
Fill a small tray with water.
Start by writing the words you want your child to read on the kitchen roll.
Open the kitchen paper and draw the picture that matches your word.
Complete this with other words.
Ask your child to read the word. Once they have read it they place it gently in the water and watch the magic! Does the picture match the word they read? 😊
Here are some ideas to get you started…
Ditty Group – please upload the work for this session to Teams
I have saved the Ditty and Handwriting sheet on Teams. I have posted your step by step guide to work through each section of the session.
Today’s ditty is called An Ant and a Bug.
Red Ditty Group – please upload any work from this session to Teams.
I have uploaded the PowerPoint for today’s session onto Teams in the Daily Work Folder. Today’s Red Ditty is called Fat Frog. Please see the step by step guide to show you how to complete each section of the session.

Maths – please upload any work from this session to Teams.
Join us for our maths lesson live at 10.40am. If you can’t make the lesson it will be recorded. I have saved all of the files that you will need for maths on Teams.
The children can begin the session by writing one more than a given number. Please ensure they have a paper and pen for this part of the session.
The PowerPoint will show some cards with numbers on. The children need to work out if the cards match, and both have the same number on them or if they are different.
For the main teaching session we will be focusing on height and measuring how tall a sunflower has grown. The children will not need any equipment for this part of the session.
The following picture shows the activity for after the live session.
You may also like to complete the following activities, as well as the worksheets saved on Teams.
Use your dinosaurs or toy people and measure who is the tallest and who is the shortest. Can you order your toys from tallest to shortest.
You could make your own tape measure to measure items.
If you would like an extra challenge for your child you could teach them how to use a measuring tape to measure everyone in your household. Can they record their findings? Remember to teach them to record their answers using centimetres.
Topic – please upload your work for this session to Teams
Think about how the old woman hid inside the pumpkin so that the animals wouldn’t see her as she rolled past. Challenge your child to design their on any of hiding from the animals. Would you create a racing car to speed past the animals? Would you find an alternative vegetable that you could hide in and roll past the animals? Would you use things from around you to change you into an animal that is even bigger than them and could scare them?
Using the worksheet saved on Teams design your own way of hiding from the animals. Once you have drawn your plan add labels to explain it to you friends. Let’s share all of your amazing ideas!
Now create your own hiding place within your environment, a simple den, or disguising a large cardboard box in which you can hide. You could use this to act out your own version of the story. What animals do you meet on your journey?
Just for fun – Paper cup Pom Pom shooter
