Good Morning Acorns,

We hope you enjoyed listening to The Rainbow Fish story.  We were really pleased to see the different designs on Purple Mash.  Today, we have some new challenges for you to complete at home.

In Literacy, please listen to The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister again with your grown-up. This is the link you will need:
Reflect on how the Rainbow Fish felt after he had given his scales away. Why did he feel happy? Yes, because the other fish wanted to be his friends. Yesterday, we thought about different ‘happy’ words. In another activity, you drew and labelled a picture of a toy/object you have shared with someone else. Today, we would like you to write a sentence about this experience. For example, I felt happy when I shared my doll with my sister. Another example might be, I gave my friend a toy and he felt happy. This made me feel joyful. Remember to write a golden sentence, ensuring you use a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop.  Try and make sure simple keywords are spelt correctly.  

In Maths today, we will be adding pairs of numbers together to make 10. This is a fun activity and you will need to use some toys to help you or objects from around the home. Please ask your grown-up’s permission before using any objects.

This is an example of the activity and we will be using lego bricks. Make a tower of ten lego bricks. Now break the tower into two parts. How many lego blocks are in each of the two parts? For example, 8 and 2. What do we get if we add 8 and 2? Write a number sentence in your home learning book to match. Remember, it will need an addition/plus/add (+) sign and an equals (=) sign. Your grown-up might want to model on a piece of paper: 8 + 2 = 10 . Repeat with the tower of ten lego bricks by breaking it into two. How many different ways can you make 10? For example, 6 + 4 = 10. Please write your addition number sentences in your home learning book.

It is time to go fishing! Yesterday, you examined different types of fish in the PowerPoint. Which fish did you find intriguing? Was it the beautiful Shubunkin? Or was it the fierce looking Mako Shark? You may be interested in the Hammerhead Shark because of the shape of its head. We have attached the PowerPoint again for you to look at with your grown-up. Choose one fish and tell us why you like this particular fish. For example, I like the Pinfish because it has gold scales. Please draw your fish and write a sentence about why you like this fish. Remember to write neatly and form your letters carefully.

Are you ready for a Rainbow Fish collage? You will need to draw an outline of a fish and then carefully use scissors to cut out the shape of the fish. Use a black pen to draw a dot for the eye.  Please create a Rainbow Fish collage. What will you use for the fins and scales?  You can use card, wrapping paper, old pieces of wallpaper, tissue paper, crepe paper or foil.  Please ask your grown-up before using any resources.  How many different colours can you use?  When you have completed your creation, give yourself a big smile.  You did it!

We hope you have a great day.
