Smiling, Caring and Learning Together on a Journey with God

10 Green Bottles

Daily Exercise Idea:

If you can’t get out for your daily exercise today, here is something you could try at home:

It’s Workout Wednesday! You could design your very own workout. Think about what movements you could do, for example star jumps, stretches, running on the spot etc... Try to challenge yourself by seeing how much you can do in 1 minute! If you did the workout last week, are you able to do more in 1 minute this week?

 

Reading

This week we are thinking about the Super 6 skill of Summarising. Summarising is when you say what has happened in a story in your own words.

This week we have been thinking about the Bible story of Noah’s Ark. If you have your own version at home, maybe share it again with your grown-up or follow the link below:

Have a go at answering today’s questions...

Can you remember the main parts of the story?

What were the names of the characters and what did they do?

What happened at the end of the story? 

 

Writing

Today we are going to be writing in the style of a diagram. A diagram is often found in information books to point out certain features of a picture. We are going to use an animal from our Noah’s Ark project. You can choose how to present your diagram:

Option 1

Either draw, print or cut out a picture of your animal. Stick the animal in the centre of your piece of paper and write words (called labels) around the edge for the different body parts that you can see. Then draw an arrow or line from each word to the body part in the picture.

Option 2

Using a cuddly toy or plastic model of an animal, put it in the middle of the room. Write the name of each body part that you can see on separate post-it notes or scraps of paper and lay these around the edge of your animal. Next you will need to use a straight object such as a pen or pencil to match the body part to the correct word.

 

Mathematics

This week we are thinking about counting on or back. Today we would like you to have a go at the Ten Green Bottles game:

Ask your adult to put a number (up to 10) in the black box at the bottom. Your grown-up will then shout ‘count on 1 or count back 1’. Can you work out the correct answer? You can check if you were right by clicking on the hanging bottles to count back (smashing them) or by clicking on the bottle icon with the plus sign to count on (hang more up).

You can make this harder by using numbers to 20 in the black box or by counting on or back by two, three or four each time.
