Week beginning 06.07.2020
This week’s story ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ has lots of rhyming words in it. If you listen to it again can you hear any of them? Here are some you might have heard:
hen/pen, hog/dog, purred/bird
How many of the animals can you remember that are on the farm in the story? There are 10 altogether. How many did you remember? Here’s a picture of them all.
Have a go at saying the names of all the animals and then, with the help of you parents, can you say the sound at the beginning of each one?
c/cow, h/hen, g/goose, d/duck, h/horse, h/hog, sh/sheep, d/dog, c/cats.
Here’s a challenge for you… Are any of the sounds the same?
Well done if you heard h/horse, hen, hog; d/duck, dog; c/cow, cats.
Finally can you practise making the sounds that each animal makes. Ask your parents to say the name of one of the animals and you make the sound that it makes, for example if they say ‘cow’ you say ‘moooo’
This week we are going to practise counting up to 5 and back. Have you got your fingers ready? Here we go…
1 2 3 4 5
And back again…
5 4 3 2 1
Well done! Have another try if you need to.
Click on this link to listen to a song about ladybirds. It will help you to count back from 5 to 1. Join in with it if you can.
If you would like a challenge why not try to write the numbers like Dave does?
Do you think you could draw 5 ladybirds and put 1 spot on one of them, 2 spots on another, 3 on another, 4 on another and 5 on the last one?
Please send me some photos if you try this activity.
This week why not have a go at making some ladbird biscuits? This is what you’ll need:
Rich tea or digestive biscuits
Red food colouring
Black writing icing (Tesco and Asda sell this)
Icing eyes (optional)
Here’s a picture of some that you can copy. Don’t forget to send me a picture of yours before you eat them!
Cultural Capital – Margaret Thatcher
Margaret Thatcher was our Prime Minister from 1979 until 1990. She was the first lady to be British Prime Minister. Her nickname was ‘The Iron Lady’.
If you could be Prime Minister what would new rules would you make? I think I would make a rule that we have a National Ice Cream Day. On that day everyone would be allowed to eat as much ice cream as they wanted.
Click on this to watch a video about ladybirds then why not have a look around your garden, or when you go out for a walk, and see if you can find any ladybirds. I saw quite a lot last night when I was walking Lucy. If you find some can you count how many spots they have?
