RH Penguin Homework

This week the Reception children learnt about the fantastic story ‘What’s in the Egg, Little Pip?’. The children learnt to write interesting facts about the penguins in Antarctica.

Watch the video below about the African Penguin to help you do the homework:

Literacy:

GreenBlue group: Edd and Eppa told us lots of interesting facts about the African penguin. Now make your own penguin fact book and write 4 different facts about the penguin.

If you are really clever can you use your research skills to find different places around the world where penguins can be found. Claim a prize for being a super explorer.

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: Mr Harwood really 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.

 Red Group: Write and solve the addition sum for each of the questions.

A prize will be given to those who complete all of the homework.
