Literacy:
 
1. Tell us about your weekend. Write a diary entry of the things you have done at home. Make sure you use adjectives and conjunctions to make your writing more interesting. Don't forget your capital letters and full stops. The names of the days must start with a capital letter.
Here is an example: On a sunny Saturday I played in the garden and I had a dip in my cold paddling pool. In the evening I watched a film with my family and had a delicious meal. On Sunday, I went for a long walk and I had a chocolate ice-cream. Delicious! 
 
2. Look at some story books. Can you find any verbs in past tense ending with -ed? (watched, walked, stopped) Write some of the words out and make a list of verbs ending in -ed and some that change completely in past tense (swam, went, woke)
 
3. Take a look at the Antarctic explorers power point presentation. Can you write some facts about Scott? (He was a British explorer and wanted to be the first to reach the South Pole. Unfortunately somebody else got there first. Scott's sledge was pulled by horses and dogs. He wanted to study the animals, the weather and the land. On the way home, Scott died of frostbite.) 
 
4. Take a look at the video of Emperor penguins. Can you write sentences about the life cycle of the emperor penguins? Use time connectives such as: first, then, next, finally. Try and make your sentences longer using conjunctions. ( First the mummy lays an egg and gives it to dad to look after it. Next the mum goes to eat for two months in the sea and the egg hatches. After that mum comes back from the sea and dad goes to eat. The chick is fluffy and some grown-up feathers start to grow. Finally the chick looses all his fluffy feather and becomes an adult.) 
 
5. Think about words that have -er suffixes: stronger, longer, smarter, quicker. Write sentences with some of these words. Can you spot any of these words in story books? 
 
6. Think about words that have -est suffixes: strongest, loudest, smartest, quickest. Write sentences with some of these words. Can you spot any of these words in story books? 
 
7. Take a look at the power-point about Christian beliefs. Can you write three different celebrations that are important for Christians? Use conjunction because to tell us why it is important that particular belief. 
 
8. Imagine that you are an explorer and you discover a new type of animal. Is it a fish or a mammal? Or is it a bird or a reptile? Draw a picture of your imaginary discovery and describe what it looks like, where it lives and what it likes to eat.

Numeracy:
 
1. Take a look at the power-point presentation about sharing with fairy tale characters. Can you share the cakes fairly?
 
2. Take 10 counters. Share them out evenly on 2 plates. Now try them on 5 plates. What happens if you share them onto 3 plates? Is it fair?
 
3. Make the following using stones. Take photos for evidence: 3 rows of 5, 2 rows of 3, 4 rows of 6 and 10 rows of 2. (remember the rows are horizontal) 
Here is an example for the first one:
XXXXX one row of 5
XXXXX two rows of 5
XXXXX three rows of 5 
 
4. Write down the even numbers from 2 to 20. Now write down the odd numbers between 1 and 19. 
 
5. Make 20 groups of 5. You can use buttons, sticks, stones. Can you count them up? Will you count each one? You should see that they are all in 5's, so you can count in 5's. 
 
6. Make 10 groups of 10 using sticks, beans, stones, etc. Can you count them up? You should recognise to count them in 10's. 
 
7. Solve the following word problem. Use practical equipment to help you, or you can draw them out:
Jo has 12 packets of sweets. She shares them out fairly between her and 3 of her friends. (4 groups) How many packets of sweets will each friend have? 
 
8. Make as many number bonds to 20 as possible. Remember, if you know your number bonds to 10, change one of the numbers into a teen number to make number bonds to 20. (I know that 9+1= 10, so 19+1=20 or 9+11=20) 
 
Topic:
 
1. Imagine that you are going on an expedition to Antarctica. What will you need and how will you get there? You can fly from UK to Argentina, or you can go on a ship. Then from Argentina to Antarctica. Or you can fly/travel on a boat to the Falkland islands and then to Antarctica. Design a suitcase of the things you would take to Antarctica. Remember, it is very cold so you will need lots of warm clothes. Think of the food you will eat too.
 
2. Make a  pair of binoculars and a compass and pretend that you are in Antarctica. What will you see? What kind of animals will you spot? Research animals that live in Antarctica and make a list of their names. You can even draw pictures of different animals and label the pictures. 
 
3. Make a 3D penguin out of card or toilet roll. Use the cylinder shape for the body, make sure you add flippers, beak and eyed. 
 
4. Create a 3D iceberg using junk. Paint it white and place your penguin on the iceberg. 
 
5. In school we are running at least 5 laps on the main playground daily. See how many laps can you run around your garden in 1 minute? How about 2 minutes? How long does it take you to run 5 times round your garden?
