Book week Art
Find a plastic bottle you can recycle, size does not matter. Using glue and any thin paper, tissue if you have it, cover the bottle completely in paper. If you have paper that is coloured that would be good. Once you have covered it leave it to dry.
Using whatever resources you have at home like leaves, grass, glitter, pasta, food colouring, make a potion for the sorcerer. Write a list of what you are putting in the potion and draw some pictures to show the ingredients.
Thinking about ordinal numbers write some labels that say
Now find some of your own toys for eg cars, figures of people and see if you can line them up in the correct order. Play a game with someone in your house and see if you can read the labels as well as remembering what each label says.
Book Week Art
Yesterday you covered your bottle on paper and it should be dry by today. Use whatever resources you have like felt tip pens, paints, sequins, glitter or any colourful stickers to decorate your potion bottle.
We are continuing with learning about ordinal numbers for today and tomorrow. Please follow the link to BBC Bitesize;
Today you can watch the Pirate Ordinal numbers slideshow and then complete the dinosaur worksheet or draw your own dinosaurs and label their position.
Cut out a label for your potion bottle and see if you can write a label for it. You could write a list of what was in your potion or think of a name for it. Use a piece of string to attach it to the bottle.
Revisit BBC Bitesize;
Play Karate Cats Maths and then complete the ice cream sheet. You can draw an ice cream yourself if you prefer.
Can you draw a picture of a wizard -think about what you saw in James Mayhew's reading. Then once you have drawn the wizard, think of some words to describe what he looks like and how he is. Does he wear a pointy hat? Does he have a cloak? What colour is his hair? Does he have a beard?
