Always Aiming High – Anelu’n Uchel O Hyd

Wednesday 6th May

Literacy - We are so pleased that you are all enjoying the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and you have re-told the story in so many creative ways. In the story, the Very Hungry Caterpillar transforms into a beautiful butterfly. Today’s task is we are going to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly. Watch the Life Cycle video below and learn the song to help you to remember the stages of the life cycle. We would like you to create a piece of work showing the life cycle of a butterfly. You can present it in any way, you might like to record your own video singing the song or simply draw a picture of each stage, you can be as creative as you want, I’m sure we will see some fantastic creations 😊.

Here are a couple of amazing 'Hungry Caterpillar' ebooks made yesterday by some of the children - bendigedig!

Phonics - A couple of weeks ago you tried writing a message using invisible ink! Today you are going to look at another type of secret message system called ‘Morse Code’. They used to use this to send secret messages to each other during the war so that the enemy didn’t know what they were saying. They sent their messages by using patterns of lights - dots and dashes (the dots were a quick flash, the dash was a longer one). Using the morse code patterns in the sheet below, can you figure out what words I have sent you? Pause the video after each letter to give you some time to write down the pattern then find each letter. Look at the video to help you or they are also written in the document below. This is quite a tricky one today!

Sentence number 1 - six words in this one!

I was very lucky to have some help from a glamorous little assistant called Albie in this one 😊

Sentence number 2 - five words in this one.

My glamorous assistant became a little bored at this point!
Challenge - can you figure out what the message from all the teachers is?

My glamorous assistant is back! And a little clue...none of the words are ‘cheese’ 😊

Numeracy - Today, we are going to be doing some more halving! The Very Hungry Caterpillar has invited one of his caterpillar friends round for tea. Take a look at his shopping list for all the things he bought for their tea below - can you halve the things he bought so they each have the same amount of all the foods for tea?


You can use the halving template/plates etc. like you did last week, or you may choose to use the butterfly wings that you made earlier in the week to halve your amounts equally (half per wing). You can write your answers in a table like you did last week too - draw a picture of the food with the number on one side, then write your halved answer on the other side. You can stop after 'plums' if you like, or if you fancy a challenge you can go all the way down the list to 'ice creams' (or choose the food that you want to do).

Click the link below if you would like to access the video from last week about how we teach the children to halve practically when in school.

Afternoon challenge - Can you make your very own Hungry Caterpillar using an egg box? Take a look at the pictures for some ideas of what you can do - if you don’t have pipe cleaners or googly eyes, you could use cardboard from your recycling bag and draw on a face. You might even choose to create a rainbow coloured caterpillar to help remember all our NHS and key worker heroes!

Today, we have another Cosmic Kids adventure for you to try - this time it’s a story all about Coco the Butterfly.
