Do all of the creatures sound the same? Talk about reading with expression and changing your voice when different characters are talking. Which is your favourite creature voice? Can you change your voice? You could try changing your pitch (high or low), speed or even your accent!

Maths:

Look at a clockface. Can you see the different hands? The long hand measures minutes and the short hand measures hours. Which hand moves the fastest? When the long hand points to 12 it means it is an ‘o clock’ time. We know what hour it is by looking at the number the short hand is pointing to. Use the clock to make different ‘o clock’ times click here What time is it?

Task: Understanding the World:

Choose a favourite sea creature to find out more information about. What new facts can you learn? What does it eat? What does it look like? Does it have any special features?

Today we are going to be learning about two-syllable words. A syllable is the beat of a word and breaking words into their syllable can help us to read longer words.

Try clapping the names of your family. How many syllables do they have in their name?

How many objects can you find that have two syllables? E.g. tooth|brush, pen|cil, lunch|box.

Can you write a list of objects you can find?

Literacy:

Re-listen to the poems on YouTube   click here

Choose a favourite poem to learn with your family. Can you clap the rhythm? Can you think of actions to help you remember the words? Remember to change your voice!

Maths:

Play ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf’. The time is ‘o clock’ so it means the long hand must be pointing at 12 on the clockface.

Use the Education City login details in your home learning pack to play the following game to practise reading ‘o clock times’ on a clockface.

Literacy:

Some of the sea creatures are feeling sad that the author didn’t write a poem about them. Can you think of any other creatures that live under the sea? Choose one creature and draw a picture of it. What does it look like? How does it feel? Can you write some labels to describe the creature? E.g. spiky, rough, tiny, sharp

Maths:

Do all clocks look the same? Some clocks have numbers going around in a circle with a long hand and a short hand. These are called analogue clocks. Other clocks have the time written in numerals which tells you the exact time. These are called digital clocks. How many different clocks can you find in your house?
