Summer 2 week 2
What animals can you see on the farm?
- Watch the video below that tells you all about different farm animals. Talk with your grown-ups about what you have learnt from the video. Key questions: Which animal lays the biggest eggs? Where does goat milk come from? How is a turkey different from a chicken?
- Have a go at the linking activity ( attached below) - you have to draw a line linking the mummy animal to the baby animal. Do you know the names of the baby animals? How do they look different from the mummy?
- Have a go at the matching activity (attached below) - you have to cut out the pictures and match the farm animal to where they live.
- Watch the video for the story ‘The Little Red Hen’ and talk with your grown-ups about the story. Key questions: Do you think that the other animals were being fair to the hen? What should the other animals have done instead? Why is it important to help each other?
- Create a recipe for making bread, using the different parts of the story to help you. Draw pictures for the different stages of the recipe and copy some of the key words that your grown-ups show you.
- Draw some pictures of your favourite food. Do you know where that food comes from or how it is made? Find out from your grown-ups about where your favourite food comes from. Which food grows in the ground? Which food grows in trees? Which food comes from animals (such as eggs and milk)?
- Don’t forget to look at our ‘Phonics’ tab to check out our new phonics activities. We will be posting new activities every week for a new letter sound every week. This week we will be learning the letter sound S. Can you think of any objects that begin with the S sound?
- In the farm animal video, you saw how the farmer measured her pony using her hands. Measure your family members using your hands – who is the tallest? Who is the shortest? You can find other things in your house to measure using your hands too!
- Create a picture or a pattern using different objects. You can use small objects from around your house, or you could gather together some natural objects that you can find in your local park or garden, such as sticks, fallen leaves, acorns, conkers. Take a photo and share with us your pictures!
- Have a go at these fun ‘colour by numbers’ farm animal colouring pages (at the bottom of the page) - recognise the number and then colour in everything containing that number with the correct colour.
- Have a go at making your own bread! Be creative – can you plait the bread? Can you make the bread into different shapes? Here is an easy bread making video that uses a bag - no mess (: If you have a different recipe we would love to see it! Please send us your photos or upload them to tapestry!
