We have been looking at George’s Marvellous Medicine

The words tell the story

Roald Dahl, the Author, wrote these words:

Chapter One

Grandma

I’m going shopping in the village,’ George’s mother said to George on Saturday morning. ‘So be a good boy and don’t get up to mischief.’

This was a silly thing to say to a small boy at any time. It immediately made him wonder what sort of mischief he might get up to.

‘And don’t forget to give Grandma her medicine at eleven o’clock, the mother said. Then out she went, closing the back door behind her.

 

The pictures tell the story too. They give us ideas and help us to see it.

 (In a book we call these pictures: illustrations)

Quentin Blake, the illustrator, drew the pictures:

Look at the picture. In the book Roald Dahl didn’t tell us that Grandma was wearing purple or that the teacup was white and plain. If he told us everything we would get bored and we would never get to the exciting bits like when he made the medicine.

The picture can tell us a lot about the story.

How do you think George is feeling?

How do you know?

 

Here the illustrations tell a story about what happened to the sheep:

 

Underneath we could write:

George gave his marvellous medicine to all of the sheep.

The sheep were shocked at first.

Then they grew huge.

Look in your packs to find the illustrations of the pig and the chicken taking the medicine.

 You only need this page today.

Fold it in half so you have two stories with three pictures in each. You will need to fold it across the widest part of the paper:

Now you have folded the paper you have two parts of the story

In your book write the long date: Wednesday 1st April 2020

Draw the pig story in three parts and write underneath what is happening in each of the three pictures

When you have done this do the same for the chicken.

Can you tell the story in the three pictures?

Well done  - you have finished your writing for today

 

 

 

Reading:

Today is the first of April………..1/04/2020

Some people play tricks on others (jokey tricks not mean ones)

No one really knows why today is celebrated but there are some ideas about the change in the calendar many years ago and people not realising it was the beginning of Spring.

It is actually known as April Fish Day in some areas of Europe.

People think this is because there are a lot of fish in French streams and rivers around 1st April, and they are easy to catch - foolish fish!

It is still a common tradition in France to make a paper fish and to give chocolate fish as gifts.

Can you answer the questions in sentences that you write in your book?:

What is the date?

The date is  __________

In some parts of Europe what is today also called?

 In some parts of Europe it is called _________

Can you make a paper fish?

Topic:


We have been exploring habitats

We have looked at lifecycles which today we will revisit and explore further

We have been looking at a pond habitat

 

 

Walt:

Today we will compare explore how the needs of the frog and the dragonfly change as they grow. We will learn that they go to different places in and out of the pond

 

What we notice when we look at the pond habitat is that pond creatures often change what they look like and what they need as they grow bigger:

This is true of frogs and dragonflies:

 

 

Can you draw a frog in your book in the centre of the page

Around it draw the stages

In the boxes label the egg/frog /tadpole/froglet and frog.

Write whether the frog needs water or air or land (to swim, breath and walk)

Are there some stages where they need two or more things for survival (land and water)?

Can a frog live just on land?

Compare the frog to the dragonfly in the same way:

 

 

Does the dragonfly always need water?

Does the dragonfly ever leave the pond?

Where does the dragonfly go? Is this a different habitat?

 

 

Walt: I can identify birds  (keep doing this

  • I know that frogs like to eat flies
  • I know that baby frogs are called tadpoles and teenage frogs developing legs are called froglets
  • I can create a frog game ( a board game to stop you getting bored!!)

 

You will need:

  • A two minute timer
  • Six counters (copy from the pictures or print and cut out)
  • The picture of the pond (if you can’t print it can you copy it but make sure it has…….all the frogs and the flies and the tadpoles and the spawn, the lilypad and froglets)
  • Two or more people
  • Using the picture of the pond  - place it in the centre where everyone can see
  • Put the six counters upside down on the table
  • Take it in turns to close your eyes and find a counter
  • When you have found the counter put the two minute timer on and count the number of creatures that are the same as your counter.
  • If you count them all you win the counter.
  •  If the timer runs out you lose the counter and it goes back on the table.
  • The winner is the person with most counters!
  • To challenge  yourself do it in half the time….1 minute…..or less!!

  

 

 

 

 

Finished!

Well done you have worked really hard J

 

If you have speeded through this remember to check the school home page for links to online websites for more learning.

Research the Beatles music.This isnt the same as beetles which live around our pond habitat and on woodland floors and don’t sing very well!!

 

What are the five most popular pieces of music by the Beatles?

Why do you think they were called Beatles and spelt it in that way?

 Listen to one and get to know it.

 What instruments are playing?

 Is it fast or slow? Do you like it?

How does it make you feel?

Write all this in your book.

If you still have some time research the biggest animals in the world.

What country do they live in?

How big are they?

Why do they need to be so big?

Hope this helps to keep you busy!!
