Acorn Daily Planner - 28.04.20

Tuesday 28th April 2020

Good Morning Acorns,

We have really enjoyed looking at your wonderful bear pictures! Keep up the good work Acorns. If you have been completing the daily challenges so far, then you’re a Superstar!

In Literacy this week we will be continuing with our space theme! Please share the story called Whatever Next by Jill Murphy with your grown-up again. This is the link you will need: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6c5cb0u0rPM

Look carefully at what Baby Bear uses to create his rocket and his space helmet. How does he launch his rocket? Who does he take? Discuss the story. Does Baby Bear really go to the moon? Talk about how he imagines he does. What does he use as a space helmet? What does he use as a rocket? We would like you to reflect and think about your favourite part of the story. Did you find it funny when Baby Bear travelled to the moon in a box? Can you draw a picture showing one part of the story? Then use your phonics to help write a sentence about the story. For example, Baby Bear met an owl and they had a picnic together. The words in italic, you should be able to spell independently. ‘They’ is a tricky word and you may need to practise this word. The other words in the sentence, you can use your phonics to help spell, e.g. ‘picnic’.

In Maths today we will be reflecting on 3D shapes. Please look at the 3D shape PowerPoint with your grown-up and discuss. Can you identify each shape? Look at each shape carefully.

We would like you to think about which shapes can roll? Which shapes can slide? There may be some shapes that can roll and slide! See if you can find some 3D shapes to help you complete the next part of this task. Please ask your grown-up’s permission before using any household objects. For example, you may want to try rolling a ball to your grown-up. A ball is a sphere shape. A sphere can only roll. If you have a tissue box, you may want to see if it slides. You may have a tin of baked beans at home, will the tin roll, slide or can it do both? Try and see which shapes will slide and which will roll. You will find that some shapes can roll and slide.

For your first topic activity, we would like you to think about the different toys you like to play with at home. In Maths, we have learnt that a ball is a sphere shape. On Purplemash, can you design your own ball? Which colours will you choose? We will look forward to seeing your designs!

We have been reflecting on how much God loves everyone. God has made us unique and we are all different and special to him. Can you talk to your grown-up about all the wonderful things that make you unique? You may have a talent for dance, gymnastics, baking, painting or creating masterpieces during junk modelling activities! In your home learning book, please draw a picture showing how you are unique.

We hope you have a wonderful day and you enjoy the activities.  Keep smiling!
