Good Morning! 

I hope you had lots of fun in the snow! Let's kick off the day with a wake and shake! Today we're going to do some yoga to 'We're going on a bear hunt!'. 

We're Going on a Bear Hunt | A Cosmic Kids Yoga Adventure!


Today in phonics we are learning another diagraph. This one is 'er' like 'hammer'. Take a look at the letters and sounds video here: -Lesson 27 'er' (hammer) 

Now have a look at the picture below, can you have a go at reading the words? 



Today for our handwriting lesson we are going to practise writing the tricky word 'she'. First, have a practise writing the word, then can you put it into a sentence. After, have a practise saying the words aloud by singing this song 'Who is he? Who is she?'



Who is he? Who is she? (Introducing) - English song for Kids - Let's sing a song



Today for our literacy lesson your learning objective is to write an alternative to a familiar story. To be successful today, you will be able to: 

Recite an alternative to a familiar story (We're going on a Bear Hunt'). 

Write or use describing words in your story. 

Attempt to write short sentences in a meaningful context. 

Use vocabulary that has been influenced by books. 


Yesterday, you created a story map and wrote your own 'noisy words' around each area of your dinosaur habitat. Today, we would like you to construct some sentences inspired by the story. 


First of all, have a go at chanting the rhyme 'We're going on a dinosaur hunt, we're going to catch a big one, what a beautiful day, we're not scared.'


Next in the story comes an obstacle! So, using your own story map you need to fill in the next sentence ' Uh oh, a ____________ a ________, _________ ________'. Have a look at the video attached to help you! Once you have said your story out loud perhaps you would like to write it down, you could even make your very own book with illustrations!

Understanding the world

Today for your Understanding the world task we would like you to end our dinosaur topic in spectacular fashion by creating an 'Exploding Volcano'. Have a look at the link attached to find out the equipment you will need and the method you need to take to create your volcano



If you would prefer you can always create your own version. You could get creative and make an exploding volcano using a range of materials or have a go at creating your own science experiment using what you have at home.
