Welcome to the start of a new week. This week, we will be reading a story called ‘Ned and the Jungle Animals’.
Monday : In the first chapter, Ned and his friends are doing some gardening at school and he sees something quite surprising disappearing inside the school. When you have read chapter one, there are some questions for you to check you have understood what you have read.
There are then two fun activities. In the first one, you need to complete the jigsaw to see a picture of Ned, and in the second, you can decorate a picture from the story, and use the words to write a sentence about the picture.
In maths, you have a quiz where you need to match the digits to the numbers written in words. You need to drag the words onto the arrows that are pointing to the same number. Can you label all the numbers correctly up to twenty?
Finally, there is a chance to develop your coding skills and write some code for the activity, ‘Guard the Castle’. Can you help the knight to keep the castle safe?
Tuesday : Today we are going to read chapter 2 of our story, ‘Ned and the Jungle Animals’ and then do some work to check your understanding. In today’s chapter, Ned is doing some painting and sees a mysterious looking tail outside the window. Would you believe Ned if you were Anna?
There is also a pairs game to play and a paint project for you to have a go at. Remember to have a go at writing a sentence to go with your picture.
Maths sees you race against the computer in 2Race, as you decide whether the numbers are odd or even.
This week we are going to carry out some work based around jungle animals. Which is your favourite animal? Today we are starting off by looking at tigers. Can you think of some good adjectives and similes to describe a tiger? After that, have a go at the animal matching game, where you need to correctly match the different animals to their name.
Wednesday : You are working really well this week, keep it up! First, we are going to read the next chapter and then complete some activities based around what you have read. In chapter 3, Ned has another strange animal sighting!
After completing the activities, you can have a go at making your own garden scene with Ned and Anna.
After that, you have another paint project to do. How will you decorate your crocodile?
In maths, you play a game of Sequence Snake. Look at the sequence of numbers and guide the snake to the next number. Start off with challenge A, and if you want to, have a go at challenge B.
For our other work today, we are thinking about different animal habitats. That means where different animals live. Can you sort the animals into the correct group? There is also a game of Jungle Pairs to play. As on previous days, remember to set some time to make sure you get moving, perhaps you can follow a keep fit video online?
Thursday In today’s chapter of our story, Ned sees yet another strange animal and is determined to follow it to figure out what is going on! Show how well you understand what you have read by completing the activities.
There is then a game to play where you must help Ned collect the carrots from the garden. Watch out for the animals! You can then colour the picture of Ned and Anna from the story. Remember to write a sentence.
In maths, you have an exercise where you need to work out which number is missing from the number line.
For our topic work you are going to do some writing about your favourite animal. Think about what the animal looks like, what it eats and where it lives. After that, you can complete your own jungle picture. Remember to click on the animals to hear a sound!
Friday Today is the final chapter of our story ‘Ned and the Jungle Animals’. Today, Ned finally gets some answers about all the jungle visitors he has spied this week. Remember to complete the activities that show how well you have understood this week’s story.
After that, use the pictures to help you to put the story in the right order.
Then you have a final paint task. What did you think Ned was going to find in the school hall? Draw a picture .
In maths, you have a quiz to decide which item is the tallest or shortest.
It is then time to think about what it must be like to look after all the animals at a zoo. Using the zookeeper mashcam, think about which animal would be your favourite to look after. Take a picture of yourself as a zookeeper and write some sentences if you can.
After that, you can think about creating your very own animal. What will it look like? Will it have fur or scales?
Spellings for this week :
Year 1 – Quiz 1, ‘oo’ digraph in words like food and pool
Quiz 2, ‘oo’ digraph in words like took and foot.
Year 2 – Quiz 1, ‘tion’ suffix
Quiz 2 , common exception words .
