Home learning challenge

Thursday 2nd April

 

Good morning. Thank you to everyone that has been sending in pictures of their challenges from home, it’s been really great to see the things that you have been doing.

Today your learning challenge is to make a card for Superworm to send to his friends to say thank you.

 

I look forward to seeing your cards.

Wednesday 1st April

Good morning. Today’s learning challenge is to make some Superworm repeated patterns. You may want to make a worm template, then either by using wool or cotton, wrap it around the worm using different colours to make a repeated pattern.

If you do not have any wool, you may choose to draw a picture of a worm and paint or colour the worm using different colours to make a repeated pattern. How many repeated patterns can you make? Below is an example of what you could do.

Tuesday 31st March

Good morning. It has been great to hear that lots of you are enjoying our story this week. Today your daily challenge is to re read the story of Superworm. Discuss the main characters in the story. Are they heroes or villains? Why? Discuss what happens to the characters in the story. The online link to the book is below.

Your learning challenge today is to see if you can design a superhero costume for Superworm to wear. You might want to do a picture, make a collage or make something. I have attached a superhero mask template that you may want to use to help.

 

I look forward to seeing what you make.

Your learning challenge for today is to make a list of words and phrases that could be used to describe Superworm. You might want to describe the way that he looks or his personality and what kind of character he is. Challenge - Can you compare these to other descriptions of superhero characters that you may know?

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

 

Below is a range of printable resources that you may want to print off and use. 

Friday 27th March: British Values Day

Nell would like some help, someone has been stealing shapes with only straight sides.  Can you help her to find some things which only have straight sides?

 

You could make a shape collage, draw some shapes with straight sides, collect toys or objects with straight sides, go on a shape walk around your garden and take photos of things with straight sides. Or find another way to investigate shapes with straight sides.

 

Here are some websites with games and resources to support learning about shape.

I have added some printable resources for you to choose from if you wish.

Espresso also have resources to support this learning: please see the list of websites for details of address and login

Nell has a very sensitive nose and can identify everything. Your challenge today is to investigate some different smells. See if you can match different smells to pictures or food packets. You could make some smelly playdough, find some different smelling plants, make some smelly potions, create smelly paints or find some other ways to test your sense of smell!

 

Take This learning further:

Learn more about the nose and how we smell. What other senses do we have?

There are some great websites with ideas about senses, here are a few examples.

Tuesday 24th March: Character Detective


Your challenge today is to tell us all about the character of Nell. Reread the story with the children. Using pictures from the book as a prompt, talk about some of the things we know about Nell. The online link for the book is below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ45DlB7tEs

Think about what she looks like and what characteristics she has (e.g good sense of smell, likes to read stories, friendly, solves problems). Talk about the adventures she has.

Possible questions to ask: What kind of a character is Nell – good or bad? Hero or villain? What adventures does she have? How do we know this? What does she do to solve the problems? What does she do that makes her special? What is she good at?

To take this learning further you could:
• Draw/ paint or make collage pictures or model of Nell
• Create a wanted poster and then use full sentences to describe Nell and what she is like.
• Make a video for a news report about Nell and her amazing sense of smell.
• Make crime scene for Nell to investigate (who has stolen all the crisps/ biscuits etc)
• Become a detective and solve your own mystery!

Or you could come up with your own ideas! I have added a PDF with some ideas for this book in the resources section below  if you want to look for more activities to try.  Remember to let us know what you get upto.
