Summer 2nd, week 7, 13th – 17th July
This week our maths activities and ideas are based around the book “How many legs?” by Kes Gray and Jim Field.
Lots and lots of legs to count! A leg count!
Guess my rule! In order to do some more complex patterns we are going to look closely at some of the features of the animals! Who knows what might come along!
Talking Together Guess my Rule. Think about legs, feet, what kind of feet?
Literacy – The Hairy Toe by Daniel Postgate
Draw a picture of the monster who is looking for his hairy toe! Write a description of what he looks like!
Ordering the animals!
Time to use your counting skills to order the animals from the fewest number of legs to the greatest! Get counting!
Literacy – lets remind ourselves of one of our favourite stories!
We’re going on a bear hunt! by |Michael Rosen
Draw a story map and add all the fun sounding words such as swishy swashy!
Animal combo addition!
Combine the legs to do some addition in 2 different ways. First we will start with an amount and add another creature. Then we will add groups together!
Literacy – Act out your story map – use funny voices, add lots of sound effects and actions! If you forget the story use your story map to help you! Act the story out to your family! Get them to join in!
What will happen if someone or something leaves our leggy party?
Literacy – OH! The bear wasn’t scary! The bear was lonely and wanted to be friends! Make up your story about how you and the bear became friends! Write your story as a story map.
I am Game!
We will tell you how many creatures or characters our number is. Your leggy mission is to find the combination of animals.
Literacy – write up your story or make up another story about you and the bear going on a trip somewhere.
Watch another story about feet!
One is a snail and ten is a crab book
Make up your own sums!
1 dog and 1 spider = how many legs altogether?
2 spiders = ?
Learn to count in tens!
Toasty toes counting by tens by Michael Dahl.
Happy summer holidays!
To all of our Little Pippins,
I wish that we could all have been together the last few weeks and that we could have a last day together in Little Pippins!
I look forward to seeing you next term when we are all back at school together. I also look forward to hearing about how well you will do in your new class. I know Mr Flitton is looking forward to having you in his class and that you are all going to become Pendragons! (Luckily, Pendragons are a type of apple and not a type of dragon!)
You will have Mrs Mockridge and Miss B with you so I know that you will all look after each other as you start Year 1 together.
Please send me photos of what you get up to in the holidays or send me an e-mail.
Happy holidays and see you soon.
From Mrs Maynard
