Literacy – Adapting the Story

Today you are going to change one element of the original story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Here are some potential ideas… Maybe it’s not the 3 bears that Goldilocks visits but instead a house belonging to 3 monkeys (!); maybe the story isn’t set in a cottage, maybe it is set in a castle; maybe when she tries the porridge something magical happens to her! It can be anything you like. Use your imagination! Watch the video below of Miss Holmes adapting her own story.

Now it’s your turn! Draw a new story map detailing the changed element. You can also read/perform your adapted version too if you like!

Story Time with Miss Holmes

Today’s story is ‘The Gruffalo’! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Literacy – Drawing a Story Map

This video will show you an example of how to draw a story map.

Activity: Have a go at drawing your own story map for the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Draw a squiggly line across a piece of paper from the top left down to the bottom. Draw little pictures along the line to map out the key parts of the story. You can ask a grown up to help you write down any key words next to your pictures. Don’t forget you can colour in your pictures at the end too!

Maths – Let’s Make a Pattern!

Start the lesson by doing a Wake and Shake to the video ‘Banana, Banana, Meatball’.

Now watch the video below.

Now it’s your turn to create your own pattern!  Can you make up and record your own repeated pattern of actions? E.g. clap, clap, bang table (x3), clap clap, bang table (x3)…

Please upload your patterns as a video onto Tapestry if you can!
