Day 3

Good Morning Everyone!


I hope you are all showing your parents what excellent pupils you are!


I'm missing you all lots and wishing we were doing today's learning together - it's about bees!  I promise when we're back together we will do a honey tasting session... although you may not want to after today's learning! 

Just a polite notice to parents - today's learning is, at times, a bit 'yucky'! 



Buzz 1

Maths for today is to consolidate the learning you have done about weight and capacity.  

I've also included a counting in 5s activity as this seems to pop up in a few of the questions.  If you cannot print the sheets out then parents could help by creating a number line in books with the key numbers in place.


GOAL: To show I understand what we have learnt about weight and capacity

GOAL: To be able to count in 5s


Today's literacy is all about bees 

First of all watch the power point and then - if possible - cut out and create your own life cycle of a bee - remembering to add in labels for each stage.  If not then use the images to draw your own into your books.


GOAL: To understand the life cycle of a bee

Next, watch the second power point about bees - There are a few different video clips in this power point but please ensure you watch the video of how honey is made.  (Parents - this is where the yuck comes in!)


Then, using the bee paper - if it's possible to print - I want you to write about what you have learned about bees.  

You can choose to write about bees or you can choose to write about how bees make honey.  

If you're up for the challenge of writing about both then that's great!

Please remember

capital letters

full stops

finger spaces

Use 'and' or 'because' to join sentences together or to make them more exciting

use adjectives where possible



PLEASE do not sound out or spell the words out for your children - allow them to do this independently.  Once they've completed the work, then go back over it with them and point out any basic grammar errors - e.g. forgotten capitals and spelling mistakes.  

Later in the week, I will enclose a copy of a marked piece of work for you to see how to do this in the best way to support your children.
