Let’s start the day off with our morning exercise!

Understanding the World Activity

The activity for today will be developing an understanding of minibeast like to live. I would like you to go into your garden to look for some minibeasts. Where did you find them? Is that their home?

Ask a adult to read what is on the slideshow below to get a idea of where minibeast might like to live.

Draw a picture of a minibeast and its home.

Phonics Activity

The sound we are learning today is ‘qu’.

When we teach this sound in school we add an action.  Pretend your hand is a duck.

Practise writing the ‘qu’ sound using the phrase- ’round her head, up past her earrings and down her hair’.

How many things can you find or think of that start with the ‘qu’ sound?

Have fun. Any work you have done please send to the email address below with your child’s name and class on.
