STEM Challenge

Can you build a house for one of the three little pigs? Use materials you have at home to build a house strong enough to withstand the Huff and Puff of the Big Bad Wolf.

 

Once you have built it, ask yourself these questions:

  • What have I used to build this house?
  • Why did I pick these materials?
  • What do I think will happen when I try and blow it down?

 

Then comes the fun part – try your best to BLOW THE HOUSE DOWN!

Give it all the Huff and Puff you can! Was your guess right?

Please let us know how you got on – send us your pictures or information of your STEM Challenge.

Good luck and enjoy!!

 

Here’s a video we made to help give you some ideas.

Mental Maths: 

This week we will focus on the number 6.  Ask your child to count to 6. Can they count back from 6?  Using the number cards to 10.  Ask your child to point to 6.  Can they see what number comes before 6, comes after 6?

Using their cubes can they make a set of six?  Ask your child to touch each cube as they count up to 6.  Touch counting is important and shows your child is secure with the number.

You can use anything to make sets e.g. toys, Lego pieces, knives and forks, sweets!

Sound revision tips

It's important to revise the sounds we've covered to help keep them fresh in your child's mind. Here are some helpful tips for this revision.

CVC words:

Together let’s practice making some CVC words.

We say the word, stretch the word, chop up the sounds and we find the sounds.

 

Together we’re practising hen and peg. Then, go on to make bed and bad in your Week 4 section of your 'Essential Work Pack'.

CVC segmenting and blending - hen and peg (week 4)

Practice with me making the words hen and peg. Then go on to your week 4 activities to make your own words, bed and bad.

Sequencing:

Now that we know the story of the Three Little Pigs, use the cut and stick sequencing page in your 'Essential Work Pack' (week 4) to put the pictures of the story in order.

What happens at the start of the story?

What happens at the end of the story?

Writing:

Use the worksheet from your Essential Work Pack (week 4) to cut and stick the sentence, We see the Wolf.

Some clues to help you with this are:

- Which word has a capital letter? (This one comes first).

- Which word has a full stop after it? (This word comes at the end).

Use your initial sounds to help you sound out the words.
