Create a castle challenge!
This week as part of our home learning we are setting a creative challenge. Can you build your own castle? To do this you will need:
Boxes of all shapes and sizes
Paint or felt pens
Child friendly scissors (under supervision)
Old kitchen roll tubes or toilet paper tubes for the towers
egg box (use the ends for turrets)
Have a look at some of the pictures below and watch the video of the different parts of the castle in our non fiction book about castles, then have a go at making yours. Will it have a working drawbridge? Will it's towers have turrets and crenellations?
The best castle will receive a prize!
Today we are exploring the Qu sound. Watch the video below and complete the worksheet. 'qu' is for queen - can you practise writing the word 'queen'?
Allowing children to practice recognising number patterns allows them to subitise. Subitise is when we see an amount and know how many we can see without counting. As adults we use this skill daily. Children start to combine amounts to support them in working out how many they can see. This allows an in depth knowledge of numbers to develop.
