Morning Job

Our new tricky word is:

 

Read the word. Remember tricky words cannot be sounded out like most of the words we read in phonics.

 

When you are confident you can read the word,

 

Look at it, say it, cover it, write it, check it

 

If you spell it correctly 3 times in a row, write a sentences with the word 'could' in.

WALT solve riddles

 

This week we are going to be learning about riddles. 

 

A riddle is a type of poem that works like a puzzle. 

 

It gives you  about 'something' and you have to work out what the 'something' is. 

 

For example ...

 

I am yellow and brown. 

I eat leaves.

I life in Africa. 

I have a long neck. 

 

What am I?

 

A GIRAFFE!

 

Your task today is to read the riddles below with an adult and see if you can work out any of the answers. We will discuss these answers on Thursday on Zoom. Good luck!

 

 

FOUNDATION SUBJECTS

Each subject should take you an hour to complete.

DT WALT peel and chop vegetables

 

Today we would like you to make a vegetable soup.

The skills we want you to focus on are peeling and chopping the vegetables. Make sure there is an adult with you and you are sensible when handling knives or peelers. They are sharp and can be dangerous if not used correctly. Below is an example of a soup recipe but feel free to use any recipe that you like. 

 

When you have made the soup, we would love you to evaluate it once you have had a chance to try it. Think about what went well, what your favourite part was or what you would do differently next time.
