Walk in Wednesday Penny Challenge

For Walk in Wednesday in Science Week, we challenged the children to use a pipette to get as many drops of water onto a penny as they could!

They soon realised they needed a steady hand and very small drops!

There were some very good attempts.  Please comment with how many drops you achieved (parents, we know you got quite competitive, so add your achievements too!)

Helping at Home

Ways to help at home

  • Read every day
  • Practise your spellings and common exception words
  • As you read spot the sounds in words, can you find digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters that make one sound)?
  • Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
  • Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
  • Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
  • Practise letter formation using the correct pencil grip and develop fine motor skills (peg pressing, picking pasta shells/rice with tweezers)
