English

This week we are looking at the book by Julia Donaldson entitled ‘Room on the broom’. Look at the book together below.

Activity 1 

Can you spot the rhyming words as you listen to the story and make a list at the end?

Activity 2

Listen out for the ingredients needed for the magnificent broom.  Can you make a list of ingredients for a new spell? Look for things around the house you could put on your potion list.

Activity 3

Think about the different characters in the story. Look at the story together again. Can you describe the character of the witch? What does she look like? Is she kind? Is she mean? What words would you use to describe her?

Maths

Recap the story of Room on the Broom. Look at the characters. Create two groups of characters and model counting how many are in each group. Click on the link below to access the characters for you to cut out and sort.

Remember if you would like a paper copy of any of the activities, call the school office and we can arrange for you to come and collect them.

Some questions to ask your child : which group has the largest number? Which group has the smallest number? How many witches are in the first group? How many dragons are there altogether?
