Writing grammar activities: direct speech and inverted commas revision
Put into practise what you’ve learnt
Repeat what someone has said adding who said it and how they said it. (I’m sure it won’t get irritating!)
Have a narrative between two or three toys. You could do this on your own or with someone. (You could even add in some additional parts to your narrative) i.e. you say: “Do you want to come to the picnic?” asked Teddy. “Well only if I can bring Ken with me,” Barbie replied. Ted rolled his eyes – he wasn’t fond of Ken’s sarcastic remarks. “Fine!” he huffed.
(Don’t forget to use voices in character)
In your house or out on a walk spot some arrays – what does each array show? I.e.
Carry out some data collection. This could be different types of birds spotted, colours of cars. What’s the best way to collect this data?
Present the data you collected yesterday in a bar chart or pictogram where the bar or picture is equal to more than 1. You will have to decide the best value. You can do this on paper or on Purple Mash using 2Graph.
What questions can be asked and answered about the data?
Daily counting on a chose sequence i.e. multiples of 8. (Try clapping a beat to keep to)

2 player + game: You will need 0-12 cards and answers card for your chosen times table.
Turn over 0-12 card. Race to find the matching answer card. (i.e. if you practising x4 and you turned over 11 you would need to race to find 44). The cards could be hidden or at the end of an obstacle course.
