YellowOrange groups: Draw a picture of the African penguin and write 3 interesting facts about the penguin. Remember to use capital letters, finger spaces and full-stops in your sentences.

Red group: Draw a picture of the penguin and use your phonics knowledge to help you write some words to describe the penguin.

Maths:

GreenBlue group: Mrs Dahil needs your help to solve the sums below especially as they are missing the addition and subtraction signs. Can you find which signs (+ or -) belong in the sums below to prove you are a super mathematician. 

YellowOrange groups: Write and solve the subtraction sums below. Take a look around your home and see if you can find 10 items. You might be able to find 10 pennies or 10 buttons. Use these as counters to help  you to solve the subtraction sums.
