Here is today’s Learning at Home. Remember, to try your best! We believe in you! #BoundaryBelieves

Today we would like you to think about the life cycle of a duck.  Can you draw you own life cycle diagram starting with the mother duck laying her egg.  Draw and arrow to show what happens next.  Try and do the life cycle  going round in a circle to show it happens over and over again.  Label each part of the diagram e.g mother duck, egg, ducking, duck.  You could even write a sentence or two to describe what is happening e.g. The mother duck lays an egg.  The egg cracks.  Don’t forget to use capital letters, finger spaces and a full stop at the end of your sentence.

Watch the video below to see a baby duckling hatching from an egg.  The egg is kept in an incubator to keep it warm.  After some time the egg begins to crack and a baby duckling hatches.  Talk to an adult about what happens in the video.  Do you think the duckling is tired when he finally hatches out of the egg?  What does the duckling look like? What do you think it will eat? What do you think the duckling needs to keep healthy and stay alive?

Today in maths we are going to be thinking about money.  Collect eight different toys from around the house.  It can be anything you like an action man, barbie, cars, teddy, play figures.  Can you make some price labels for them (using only single digit numbers).  Remember to form your letters correctly.  See if a grown has some 1p or 2p coins.  Can you pay for you item using the coins e.g A teddy bear cost 7p.  You could use 7 pennies to pay for it.  Can you find a different way to pay for it?  You could draw the items in your book with the coins next to them.  If you want a challenge you could see how much it would cost to buy 2 items e.g. a car 5p and a barbie 9p.  What coins would you use? How much would it cost altogether?  If you would like a challenge afterwards follow the link to play the toy shop game on a tablet or laptop. https://www.topmarks.co.uk/money/toy-shop-money
