Welcome to week 3 of lockdown learning.

Year 1

Today we are continuing our unit of work on Perfect Pets.

Start by watching some videos on different types of animals or their favourite pets, e.g. Interesting facts about:

Cats: * CATS * | Animals For Kids | All Things Animal TV - YouTube

Penguins: * PENGUINS * | Animals For Kids | All Things Animal TV - YouTube

Gorillas: * GORILLA * | Animals For Kids | All Things Animal TV - YouTube 

Choose an animal to write about.

Watch the chosen animal video again.

Whilst watching, pause and write down words/ phrases/ sentences about the information you have heard.

Once the information has been gathered, write an information poster on their chosen animal. Don't forget to include drawings or diagrams with labels.

You could add a ‘Did you know?’ fact box. This could take the form of a question, e.g. Did you know that baby cats are called kittens?

Don't forget to check your writing for capital letters and full stops and question marks. Use your phonics to spell words.  Try to use the word and in some of your sentences.

 

Year 2

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Use the link below to listen to and enjoy Goldilocks and the Three Bears from Revolting Rhymes up to 4:13 mins.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears - Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes - Children's Audioooks - YouTube

Jot down new or interesting words to explore meanings and discuss, e.g. delinquent, tot, suggestion, distressing, house-proud, cherubs etc. Try putting the new words into different sentences.

Listen from the start of the video to 3:59 mins again. The narrator repeatedly asks, in response to Goldilocks’ actions, how would you feel? Pause each time this is asked and discuss. The narrator also makes clear her dislike for Goldilocks all the way through the poem. Discuss how the narrator might describe Goldilocks, e.g. Naughty, spoilt, selfish. Do you agree?

Re-watch from 3:51 – 4:13 mins. Pause and make a list of all Goldilocks’ crimes.

Writing Task

Imagine that you are Goldilocks. Write a letter to the narrator, to say sorry for your crimes.

Remember to lay out your letter with your address, the date, to and from. Check spelling and punctuation in each sentence together.

 

Finish watching to the end of the clip. Do you think if the narrator had received your letter, the ending could have been different?
