Dear Class R,

Thank you for your fantastic work on skeletons yesterday. I was very impressed with all the super facts that you came up with! Well done to those of you that had a go at the number work activities too. You all showed a very good understanding of subtracting. Well done!


Today we are going to continue our work on the body and delve a little deeper to look at some x-ray pictures of the human body and also look at muscles and organs. The human body really is fascinating!


What I would like you to do is go through and look at the x - ray pictures and then following this go through the attached powerpoint. There is also a video on BBC Bitesize related to the parts of the body that you can access by following the link below - 


Once you have done this I would like the children to have a go at making their own skeleton using materials they find around the house or garden e.g. string, cotton buds, pasta, sticks and stones etc. Then I would like them to have a go at making their own labels for the parts of the skeleton. I have attached a list of funnybones word cards to help with this.


Next I would like the children to try some more work on addition and subtraction. I have attached a video of an activity they can try. Don't forget that key vocabulary of add, subtract, plus, minus, equals, take away, total.
I have then added a maths page I would like them to try. This is taken from the Key Stage 1 Maths book. Sadly I was only able to order 1 copy of this book so I have photographed the page. Please do not worry about printing it off, instead get your child to read the questions from the page and write the answers down on a separate page/sheet of paper.


I will be adding a challenge at lunchtime.

Love form Mr B
