Finish off your week with a ‘Dinosaur’ yoga lesson
To finish off this week I would like you to do a bit of Art and Design. If you have a spare shoebox lying around, then this would be great, or you can use a flat piece of strong card. I would like you to make a 3D jungle!
I would like to see some 3D jungle trees of different heights to show the layers of the jungle. I would also like to see a variety of jungle animals. Maybe there are some explorers in your jungle too?
You can use all sorts of techniques to create your jungle. For example, for the trees you could use toilet roll or kitchen roll tubes, making little slits around the bottom edge so they splay out so you can stick them flat down. Or, roll up pieces of paper to make tubes.
For the animals you could draw and put them out or use salt dough or if using a shoe box, dangle them from the top using string. I have attached some pictures of ideas you could use. This may take some time and so I will not be planning a different Topic lesson on Monday, you can carry on with this project!
I’m so excited to see your finished pieces!
White Rose Maths
Wow! Many many fantastic activities today from doubling to ordering length to drawing your own portrait! Happy maths!

Today, have a go at playing the robot addition game on the web link below. Again, there is a number line at the bottom you can use. Alternatively, you can use objects as well, putting the biggest number in your head for each sum, counting out the other number of object and counting on, using the objects, from the bigger number, to find the answer.

Today we are going to look at another method of figuring out odd and even numbers. Give your child 2 plates or cut out two plate shapes. They will also need objects to 10. Say a number. Ask your child to count out that many objects and share the objects between the 2 plates. How many are on each plate? If it is fair and the objects have been shared equally then it is an even number and if the objects are not shared equally then that is not fair and it’s an odd number.
After working through all the numbers to 10, using the knowledge of what odd and even numbers end with, ask your child to draw the table from Tuesdays session again and sort all numbers from 1 to 20 into the odd and even columns.
