Little Red Riding Hood PowerPoint (In resources) or try the animated story https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/tg-a-39-little-red-riding-hood-motion-story-1

 

Reading/writing
After reading Little Red Riding Hood- Can you imagine that instead of stopping the wolf, you let him get away. Talk about how you would feel, what you would be thinking and what you might say to Little Red Riding Hood and Grandma. Then complete the activity- ‘The Woodsman- Think, say, feel’ (In resources). You can write your ideas on paper.

Imagine that you are one of the Three Little Pigs and you are worried that the wolf might come back again. You decide to make a wanted poster to help catch him and throw him in jail. Can you design and make the wanted poster that you would put up around the woods? You will need to describe him in lots of detail and you might want to offer a reward. Example in resources.


Can you guess which fairy tale or traditional tale is being described on the card? ‘Name that story’ (In resources).

 

Reading and Writing:
-Can you try the first ‘Fantastic Fairy Tales’ comprehension? An adult can read it to you if it is too tricky but you can still try answering the questions.

 

-Can you write some dictated sentences from the Fantastic Fairy Tales comprehension?

 

Year 2 

Phonics- daily streaming lessons. 

Look at mb making m sound in lamb, comb, bomb, thumb, limb - b is a silent letter. 

 

English

Recap traditional tales – what we know so far (Look in Monday 1st June for introduction)

 

Read through a traditional tale looking at the setting - is it a traditional setting, who are the characters? Why have they not chosen Roberts, space ninja's, unicorns? (Because the stories were made up using settings and people/animals who were around them)

Fairy Tales and Traditional Tales are different because fairy tales have an element of magic whereas traditional tales do not. 

Complete a Fairy Tale comprehension sheets

 

Maths Challenge

In this section please reflect on what you have already learnt about addition and begin to develop your mathematical thinking skills so that you create a systematic approach to finding all of the answers. A large version of the problem is in the resources.

Systematic approach means: using a sensible method and well-organized way which could clearly show others that we are using a pattern or system. E.g. starting with all of the bean bags landing in Bucket 1, then moving only one beanbag to bucket 2 and continue by moving one beanbag at a time into the next highest bucket. 

Please see the learning mat for the challenge image. 

 

Geography

Following on from yesterday’s discussion about places they would like to visit the aliens have asked if we could find out some more facts. These are some of the places they’ve asked us to look into.

They want to know about different habitats:-

  • Beach
  • Ocean
  • Jungle
  • Desert
  • Woodland/Forest
  • Polar region

Use a search engine to find out the name of a place containing each habitat. Try searching for ‘well known…(add habitat)’ e.g. well known jungle. Then if you want to see where it is, search for it using Google Earth. When using Google Earth it’s fun to change the view to street view and zoom right in to explore the place. Complete this activity with an adult so that they can help to keep you safe on the internet.

If you would like an extra challenge then print off the ‘Map’ (in recourses) and draw on each habitat that you found in the correct place on the map. Try using symbols e.g. trees for an area of forest or snowflakes for an area that is a polar region.

 

Outdoor challenge

Go and make a habitat from nature. Go outside to collect objects which they can make one of these habitats with e.g glue down leaves to make jungles with sticks
