Home Learning Tasks for The Wonderful Wolves

Good Morning everyone. Thank you to those children who sent pictures with Wolves for their reports, if you haven’t done so already please do this before the end of the week.  

Phonics / GPS

This week I would like us to focus on poly-syllabic words, specifically words with 2 syllables. Today I would like you to have a go at writing polysyllabic words – for this the children will need each sound in the word writing onto individual pieces of paper (I will put the sounds at the side of each word) they then need to use the cards to write each syllable of the word before writing the word down a whole word with a pen or pencil.


bean/bag    (b    ea    n    b    a   g)

black/bird     (b    l   a     ck    b    ir    d)

coun/ter   (c    ou   n     t      er)

good/night      (g     oo    d    n    igh    t)

draw/ing   (d    r    aw    i      n    g)

Today we are going to continue to think a little more about our brains, but first here are the answers to our brain quiz from yesterday.

  • Which fruit is a brain roughly the same size as? A melon
  • What does the brain have billions of?  Neurons
  • How many different lobes does a brain have? 4
  • Which two types of memory does your brain have? Long term and short term

Our brains are amazing and without them, we would not be able to do all of the fantastic things we do. We would not be able to walk, talk, hear, smell or even breathe without it. The video in the link below shows us a little more about the parts of our brain, how it works and what it helps us to do. You could always make your own after watching it, think carefully about what thoughts and feelings you might add to yours.


The video for today can be found at https://vimeo.com/428005936 it should be entitled “Week 8 - Alternative Lesson 2 - Compare objects to 50". Enjoy watching the video, if at any point you do not understand feel free to watch the video again or pause it to ask your grown-ups for help. Then use your blue book to record the answers to the questions in the activity section. The activity sheet and answers can be found in the files section of the class page on the school website.

Wolf Memory

As our time together as Wonderful Wolves draws to a close I want us to take some time to think of all the wonderful memories we have shared together. You might think back to the time we went out in the snow to make snow angels or the wonderful trip we went on to Yorkshire Wildlife Park or the amazing Lion Hunt we all went on. One of these might also be your favourite or it may be a different memory of being a Wonderful Wolf. Today I would like you to create a picture of your favourite Wonderful Wolf memory (you can use paints, pens, pencils or any other art for to do this) I would then like you to write a few sentences explaining what your favourite Wolf memory is and why. Please share it with us to the class email as we would love to know what you have really enjoyed this year
