Monday 20th April
Hello Otters! I hope you’ve had a super weekend and are ready for some more home
learning. Last week’s Pirates them was great but this week we are moving onto Dinosaurs! Rooooaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Don’t forget to send your work in to our class email address. I want loads to put
onto the website and the Facebook page again!
Make sure you get a grown-up to help you with that bit!
So here is your work for today…
Today you have a story to listen to first! Here it is:
Pete has lots of other pairs of pants to choose from! This week, you’re going to
write a story of another adventure that Pete goes on.
So that you know the story really well, you are going to create a story map for
this story. It will help you to write your own story later in the week.
Here are the main points of the story. You can draw a picture for each.
- Pete finds a strange suitcase in the attic. It is full of pants.
- Pete puts on some hairy pants and is transported to another world.
- Pete lands on an egg and it cracks. A baby dinosaur comes out and thinks Pete is its Daddy!
- Pete meets a chicken called Ted and they tell the baby dino that they will help him find his Daddy.
- Ted and Pete are chased by a tyrannosaurus-rex, but they manage to escape.
- Ted and Pete are chased by Veliciraptors and escape on Ted’s skateboard!
- They see the baby dino’s Daddy far away in a swap and decide to go through the swamp.
- They find the Dino Daddy and he is happy to see his son.
- The Dino Daddy gives Pete and Ted a ride around the swamp.
- Pete takes off the pants and is back in his attic at home.
Now have a go at creating a story map for each of the ten points, just like we do at school.
Make sure you have gone onto Times Tables RockStars Today.
At the bottom of this, you will find some problems for you to solve in your blue books. There are lots of arithmetic problems for you to solve today.
Computing/History: Check out this website all about fossils!
Art: Choose a picture of a fossil that you really like and sketch it onto a piece of paper or your writing book.
If you have some clay or plasticine at home, you could make the fossil! Make a nice, flat slab to draw onto. Find something sharp like a blunt knife or the end of a spoon (ask a grown up to help you). Draw your fossil design into the clay or plasticine to create your own cool fossil!
Here is a recipe for making salt dough. If you don’t have any clay, ask your grown-ups if you can make some salt dough. Design your fossil onto the salt dough and then put it in the oven to make your own fossil.
- 1 cupful of plain flour (about 250g)
- half a cupful of table salt (about 125g)
- half a cupful of water (about 125ml)
1. Preheat the oven to its lowest setting and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
2. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the water and stir until it comes together into a ball.
3. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and shape into your chosen model. You can roll it out and cut out shapes, numbers or letters using biscuit cutters, or make any kind of model you can think of. We made some fruit and veg shapes plus cupcakes for a teddy bear’s picnic.
4. Put your finished items on the lined baking sheet and bake for 3 hrs or until solid.
5. Leave to cool and then paint.
Here’s a great website for you to explore! It has lots of dinosaur facts on it!
Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.
