Thursday- World Book Day!

 Today everyone in the school is going to be reading the book ‘Here we are’ by Oliver Jeffers. 

Have a listen to the book: Here We Are - Read Aloud Picture Book | Brightly Storytime

Reading:

Well, hello and welcome to this planet we call Earth. You will figure lots of things out for yourself. Just remember to leave notes for everyone else. What does this mean? What pearls of wisdom would you pass on to someone else in order for them to live happily on planet Earth? Could it be ‘Be kind’, ‘Always wear your positive pants!’ or ‘You are never fully dressed without a smile!’

Decide on an appropriate note to pass onto other people living on planet Earth. Using a plain piece of paper, draw your saying and use pictures to represent this. Make it bold and unforgettable to ensure people take note. Here are some examples.

English: Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderful World (Lyrics)

 

Listen to this song by the old legend Louis Armstrong. He notices all the small but amazing things in our world.

Have a look around at all the things you appreciate in the world and try to re-write the lyrics to represent those things that are important to you.

Try to make the words fit into the pattern and rhythm of the song.

Here’s an example:

I see panthers black and polar bears white,

 Bees in the day and owls at night,

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

 I see volcanoes boom, mountains high,

 Forests of green, seas and sky

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

 The raindrops slowly falling, the lightning flash so bright

 The sunshine in the daytime, the soft moonlight at night,

 I see people smiling, saying hello Birds above the land and fish below

 

Maths:

 

Foundation:     

You are going to make a constellation viewer using household objects. Watch the video to find out what to do. Below is the constellation templates and written instructions too. Have fun!
