Today's literacy work will be as a "2Do" job on purplemash again. Log onto the site at: https://www.purplemash.com/stjamescf83, put in your username and password and click on the "2Do" section. If you post the work I can look at what you have done and write back to you! Can't wait to see what you do! Hope you have fun!
You may be asked to do:
- a butterfly life cycle
- create your own caterpillar
Use your funky fingers to make the sections of the caterpillars body. How many body parts has he got?
Is he a long caterpillar? how much food has he eaten?
Grown ups support your child to make caterpillars of different lengths. Dip a finger in the paint and make your prints close together to look like caterpillars (or just draw.)
How many body parts has he got?
Count together and then talk about how many there would be if there was one more.
Look at adding more, explore adding different amounts. How big is he now? For example, if we use the language of first, then, now. First he had 8 body pieces, then we added 2 more, now he’s got 10!
If you are not ready for numbers or adding yet –or want to take this further why not create your own pattern caterpillar and describe his pattern!
Or design your own funky pattern mini-beast!
A fun task for the week!
