Next week we are going to be learning about Nocturnal Animals and presenting facts about them as News Reporters, like the school children in the video attached to the first picture below.
Here are some links for you to explore. Click on the pictures and they will link you to a website. The first one shows you two school children doing an excellent job of making a video about Nocturnal Animals and the others all give you lots of information to help you become a nocturnal animal expert!

At the beginning of our phonics lessons we have been stretching our brains and practising using our knowledge of letter sounds by spelling the names of dinosaurs. Although their names are very long we have discovered that if we break the word down and sound it out then they are not too difficult to learn. Spot the tricky part of the word and remember those letters as you practise.
I’ve put a list of dinosaur names on Spelling CIty so you can practise and play some fun games with the words. Click on the logo below.

We have really stretch our brains working on this Chicken Nugget Maths problem. We only watched the first 44 seconds of the video and then we were set the challenge to find out which numbers of Chicken Nuggets you can’t buy with packets of 6,9,or 20 nuggets.
It was a tricky puzzle to solve but everyone put in 10+effort and some children even spent their lunchtime continuing to try and solve it. The next day we came back and watched to 1.30 so that we knew there were 22 numbers that we wouldn’t be able to make. Half way through the 2nd session when some of the children had solved the puzzle we watched to the end of the video.
Some of the children then went on to see what happened when they added the pack of 4 to the choices of what they could buy and others began to work out how they could buy larger numbers of nuggets to prove that 43 really was the largest number that you can’t buy with this combination of boxes. Why don’t you challenge your family with the puzzle or show them how you solved it!
