This week should be book week in school. We are still going to be looking at the author Julia Donaldson but most of our normal book week activities have been moved to the summer term when we will all be back in school.

Listen to the story Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson being read aloud below.

What happens in this story? Who is the little monkey looking for? Look through the story for the different descriptions that little monkey gives of his mother.

Today I would like you to create a MISSING poster that could be nailed to a tree in the jungle, giving all the detail of what she looks like (look at the descriptions of her size, her tail, her legs, her fur etc. Remember to include information about where she was last seen and choose a reward that you would give if somebody/ an animal found her.

For example:

Missing

She has brown fur.

She has a long tail.

She is soft and cuddly.

She was last seen swinging through the tall jungle trees.Reward £1000

Maths

Mental maths:

In school we follow white rose maths and there are videos each day that you will be able to access at home. 

Watch the video on the website and then complete the activities. Make sure you watch the correct video each day. Today you need to click on the count in 2s activity video. The questions and answers are saved at the bottom of this page. If you can't print out the sheet draw the things you need into your home learning book. 

If the activities are too difficult just do the questions that you can and I will provide an easier activity below.

Science

Look through the all about Spring slides saved at the bottom of this page.

Can you remember the names of the four seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter). When are the Spring months? They are March, April and May? What does Spring look like? What is the weather like in the spring? Spring weather can be mixed. You may notice that the daylight gets longer and longer during the spring months. It may still be light when you go to bed! You might notice new life springing up all around you. You might spot bluebells and crocuses growing in woodland areas when you go for a walk. What other signs of Spring can you think of?

Watch the BBC clips video about signs of Spring.  Click on the link or the picture below to watch the video.

New life starts in Spring. Think back to last week. How is Spring different to the Autumn? How is spring different to Winter? How is Spring different to Summer? Spring falls in different months of the year depending on where you are in the world. The UK is in the northern hemisphere of the Earth. The bottom half is called the southern hemisphere. The two hemispheres are split by an imaginary line called the equator. The closer you are to the equator, the hotter the temperature.

This afternoon I would like you to go on a Spring walk in the local area. What signs of Spring can you see? Use the checklist below to mark off anything that you spot. It is also saved at the bottom of this page if you would like to print it out.

Can you write some sentences or draw some pictures of any signs of Spring that you saw on your walk. It is probably unlikely that you will see a lamb in Woking but you never know!
