Hello everyone. We are preparing some home learning ideas that we will upload to this page so that children who will be staying at home for the next few weeks have some activities to complete.

Caterpillar Shoes is a story about a caterpillar.  He is very hungry, all he does all day is walk and eat and walk and eat.  On every pair of feet, a pair of tiny shoes he wears!

Teaching ideas

  • Retell the story using description to describe the different creatures
  • Write a fact file for each of the creatures
  • Design a pair of shoes for a mini beast

 

Maths

  • Create venn/carroll diagrams to sort the creatures.  Number of legs, wings and legs
  • Symmetrical patterns
  • Subtraction - as he gives away the shoes
  • Counting in twos, pairs etc




Science

  • Studying life cycle of butterflies
  • Discovering different minibeasts

Set in a fantasy world a man is sailing in his boat, through the air!  He hears a noise and suddenly gliding into view are some giant, flying turtles. 

A very short animation that can be used to extract some amazing descriptions from the children.
- Collect verbs and adverbs to do with floating and sailing gracefully.
- The children could write an ending to the story, where do these turtles take him?

-Choose a different animal to come floating by, use show not tell to describe the animal rather than just saying what it is.
