Daily Activities

Monday - Literacy

 

The story of "The Snail and the Whale" ends with the snail and the whale going on an adventure around the world with the rest of the snails and they all sing out loud to the sea.

 

Can you write a different ending to the story? Take a picture of your work and upload it onto Class Dojo.

"The whale swam back to the dock with the snail on his tail. The rest of the snails were so happy to see them that they threw a party for the snail and the whale. They invited all the animals that lived in the dock and the animals they met on their adventure. They all played games and did lots of dancing. They even had cakes, chocolate and pizza for tea! When it was time to go, the whale went home, but he told the snail he would come back and visit him soon."

Tuesday - Literacy
Suffixes are a group of letters added to the end of a word to change the meaning. For example, if the suffix 'er' is added to the word 'tall' then the word changes to 'taller'. If the suffix 'est' is added to the word 'tall' then the word changes to 'tallest'. There are some more examples of suffixes below. 

Word Suffix -er Suffix -est

Bright Brighter Brightest

Can you think about the word 'big'. What does it mean? What happens when the suffixes 'er' and 'est' are added to 'big'? What do 'bigger' and 'biggest' mean?

Please write some sentences in your yellow books with the words 'bigger' and 'biggest' in them. Upload a photo of your work onto Class Dojo.

Miss Peckett wrote:

The snail and the whale swam with a frog,

they saw a cat, a bat, a rat and a dog.

The sun was shining so they went to the beach,

they found an ice cream and they had one each. 

It was getting late, it was 10 o clock,

so they swam back to the flock on the rock. 

Please upload a photo of your poem onto Class Dojo.

Little bit of food by Joseph Coelho 

A little bit of rice,
a little bit of pea,
on my plate
for my tea.

rice, pea, rice, pea, rice pea, rice, pea.

 

A little bit of banger,
a little bit of mash,
in my belly
for a tasty bash.

banger, mash, banger, mash, banger, mash, banger, mash.

 

A little bit of jam,
a little bit of toast,
in the mornings
when I like it most.

jam, toast, jam, toast, jam, toast, jam, toast.

 

A little bit of fufu,
a little bit of stew,
eat with our fingers,
that's what we do.

fufu stew, fufu stew, fufu stew, fufu stew.

 

A little bit of curry,
with a poppadum,
tastes great
but it burns my buuuu (tongue)!

burning tongue, burning tongue, burning tongue, burning tongue. 

 

A little bit of food,
on my plate,
eat it all up,
feeling great, feeling great, feeling great, feeling great.
