English

Today we will be looking at the story Mr Wolf’s Pancakes by Jan Fearnley. Click on the link below to listen to the story being read aloud.

This story has a funny ending. Do you think Mr Wolf was very naughty for eating his neighbours? Or do you think his neighbours were rude and deserved to be eaten up?

Below are nine pictures from the story. At the moment they are all muddled up. Can you put them in the right order? They are saved at the bottom of the page for you to print. If you can’t print them out you can say aloud which picture should come first, next etc.

What is your favourite part of the story? Can you write a sentence saying what your favourite part of the story is? Try to use the conjunction because. Remember your capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

For example: My favourite part of the story is when Mr Wolf eats all of his neighbours because it was a surprise and very funny!

My favourite part of the story is when Mr Wolf went to the shop to buy his ingredients because he remembered what he needed all by himself.

Maths

Mental Maths:

Learning for Life

Think back to the lesson we looked at a few weeks ago about Harold’s money. What is money? Where does money come from? How do we use money? How does money benefit us? What would the world be like if people didn’t have money? How should we look after our money?

Have you got a money box at home? If not ask an adult at home if you can borrow some money to have a look at.

Collect some money and have a look at the coins and notes. What money do you have? How do we know how much each coin or note is worth? Whose picture is on every piece? Where can we use this money? What might we be able to buy with the money you have in your hand? Is it possible to buy anything for a penny? Why do you think different things are worth different amounts of money?

Look at the how we should look after our money activity sheet below. This sheet is also saved at the bottom of this page. Either cut out the coins and put them in order of value from least to most or draw them. You will start with the 1p and end with the £50 note. That is the most valuable money we have.

A bank can keep your money safe. If money is kept in a safe place then more money can be added to it and we call this saving.
