Good morning Team Acorns!
We hope you all had a lovely day yesterday. We have enjoyed seeing your playdough worms and we have had some lovely descriptions of the characters from Superworm.
Today’s suggested tasks are as follows:
Phonics: We would like you to share some tongue twisters today. Here are some examples:
Our fine fresh fish for you.
She sells sea shells by the seashore.
Betty bought a bit of butter.
But the butter Betty bought was bitter.
so Betty bought a better butter,
and it was better than the butter Betty bought before.
Can the children hear the repeated sound? Generate some more words that start with these sounds. Can you make up your own tongue twister?
Physical Development: Today we would like you to practise writing your name. If you need some help, your grown-up can write the letters in yellow pen for you to trace over. If you can already write your name, practise the letters you find trickier or you could write your surname.
Mathematical Development: Draw a picture of your family. Can you draw them in height order? Who is the tallest? Who is the shortest? For an extra challenge, can you measure the height of your drawings? You could use coins, pasta or cubes and count how many there are.
Story: Listen to the story ‘Yucky Worms’ by Vivien French. Tell you grown up some facts about worms.
Creative development (singing): Learn and sing the song ‘There’s a worm at the bottom of the garden.’
We would love to see whatever activities you decide to do today, so please share them with us,
Mrs Keith and Mrs Grimes
