Yesterday, I retold the story of ‘Winnie and Wilbur stay at home.’ My sentences were a bit scrambled, but you did a great job at correcting them for me. Today, I would like you to retell the story in your own words. I want you to do a better job than me. Using the pictures below write your own sentences that re-tell the story. If you think you are clever enough, try adding the conjunction ‘and’ to join two sentences together.
e.g. Winnie was doing her spelling and Wilbur had to help her.
Yesterday, you all showed me that you were experts at positional language. Today, I am going to give you an extra challenge… I would like you to use the recent knowledge you gained of 1/2’s 1/4 and 3/4’s to help Ruby choose which ride to go on. Here is some of the vocabulary you should expect to see…. clockwise, anti-clockwise, quarter turn, half turn, full turn.
1. Ruby is trying to decide what ride to go on at the fair. She’d decided on the pirate ship but suddenly changed her mind. She does a quarter turn clockwise. What ride does she choose?
2. Ruby has just gotten off the merry-go-round and decides to turn a half turn clockwise. What ride does she choose now?
3.Ruby is trying to decide what ride to go next. She’d decided on the pirate ship again, but changed her mind again. She does a three quarter turn anti-clockwise. What ride did she decide to go on now?
4. Ruby is looking at the tea-cups and
turns anticlockwise. She goes on the merry-go-round. What size turn did she make?
If you find this easy, can you try one of your own. See if I can work out which ride you put Ruby on.
