Today we are recapping all the graphemes from this week

Watch today’s video

 The floor is lava game

Write down some or all of these words onto bits of paper











Spread them around the room. Move around the room. When someone shouts the floor is lava! Quicky jump onto one of the pieces of paper and read the word! Or use them as steppingstones so you don’t step on the lava. Remember to read the word as you step on it!

paper and pencil     



Find a cosy place and have your very own OTTER time with a book you love.

A good book

Topic - Geography

WALA- Chinese money and their flag.

This week we want you to get to know the Chinese Flag, Mrs Walden has created a fact sheet for you. Have a read and then have a go at drawing the flag, do you have the correct colours at home? Maybe you could use the computer to draw it? Using and inserting shapes in word.

Then take a look at the money they have in China (Mrs Walden has created another fact file for you), they don’t use the pound notes we have here or Euros like you may have used on holiday before.

Then can you create some of your own money that would represent you and your family? Maybe you could have a picture of your dad on the back and a picture of your favourite place?

Have fun!
