this week in school we have been basing a lot of our learning around the book ‘Superworm’. You can listen to it here if you don’t have it.
In literacy, we went on a digraph/trigraph hunt outside. You could make your own cards using scrap paper and the mat below. You could then get an adult to hide them outside, and then you go and find them. Every time you find one tick them off your mat. See below.
We then had a go at writing one word for each digraph and trigraph. e.g ‘ch’ = chip ‘igh’ = night
We also read the story ‘Superworm’ then tried to create a new page for the book. What else could ‘Superworm’ be used for? He was used as a belt, a hat and a skipping rope etc. Can you think of another use for him? Write some sentences to create your own page or pages for the story book ‘Superworm’.
We also learnt about Earthworms, by watching youtube clips, and PowerPoints. Then we completed our charts below.
This week we have been working on halving.
We watched a halving story first.
We then used hoops and markers/bottle lids outside to halve amounts said. For example half of 2. Children found 2 lids/cones and then had to share them between the two hoops. We repeated this with different amounts up to 12.
or you can using these halving mats and objects.
Understanding the word
We have been learning about the life cycle of a worm, and creating wormeries. We created a life cycle of a worm hat to wear, whilst we sang our ‘Superworm’ song
see link below for the ‘Superworm’ song.
We have been busy making our own ‘Superworms’ too. like these below. We cut their body out of card, and then wrapped wool around them, creating a repeating pattern on them. We then made them red capes too.
We made pipe cleaner worms too.
We have also learnt to sing this song.
