Always Aiming High – Anelu’n Uchel O Hyd

Thursday 2nd April

Numeracy - today we are going to have a little look at symmetry. This is when something reflects down a middle line. Watch the video and have a go of the games below to help you gain a better understanding of what symmetry means before having a go of the task below.

Symmetry Song for Kids | A Day at Symmetry Land | Lines of Symmetry

You can change the lines of symmetry to a single central line in this game - click on the second black square down the left hand side of the game to do this.
Try the pictures and shape options on this game first before trying the patterns if you fancy a challenge!

Ask a grown up to draw a big egg shape on a blank piece of paper, then draw a line down the middle - this will be your mirror line where the pattern reflects. Fold your egg down the mirror line and open to lay flat. Paint a pattern on one half of your egg. When you have finished, fold your egg in half again and squash the two pieces together. When you open your egg, you will have a symmetrical design on your egg.

 

If you don’t have paints, create your first half with pens or pencils, then use a mirror to help you fill in the other half so it is symmetrical, or draw one half, fold it, then hold it against a window so you can trace your design to make a symmetrical egg. Casey already made a symmetrical egg earlier this week - you may have done too without realising!

Literacy - In the story of 'Brenda's Boring Egg' the mummy ducks dream about what they think their chicks will be like when they hatch and what they might do when they grow up. We would like you to draw a picture of yourself as a grown up doing the job you would like to do. You could even write a sentence telling us why you want to do that job and why you think you would be good at it.

 

Use the writing frame:  When I grow up I want to be a ________ because ________. 

 

When I  grow up I want to be a vet because I love animals and I am very caring.

Phonics - Today we are looking at words with 'at' 

 

sat, mat, cat, hat, pat, fat, rat

 

Task: Can you write a simple rhyming poem with words that have the sound 'at'?

 

e.g. The cat sat on the mat. 

Previously we had put up a challenge asking you to create a picture to send to an address to decorate the children’s ward at a hospital. We have since seen the picture above, so feel free to create a picture but please don’t post in the mail; if you have a twitter account then you can share as the picture says if you wish. Apologies for any inconvenience.
