Six Dinner Sid


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am in a bit of a panic, being observed on Monday 22nd June and my focus is numeracy. The children are very interested in animals at the mo and we have just been on a farm trip - the animal they were most interested in was the farm cat, so i thought i might base the lesson on the book Six Dinner Sid.

 

This is what I have come up with so far

 

Problem solving -

If Sid has six dinners a day, how many dinners does he have in a week? How many days in a week?

1 more / 1 less - he eats 4 dinners then has 1 more ...

Collection of pet bowls and pet food with numbers stuck on

Role play vets - giving sid his medicine

 

I need lots more play based activities - my class is mixed reception and year1. Any tried and tested ideas would be greatly apprectiated. :o

Thank you

Catherine xD

How about a shape activity using different shapes to make the cat and his dishes....ovals, circles, rectangles, triangles etc

what about making and designing the different beds he had in the various houses? (shape ,size, fine motor control)making a beebot look like a cat, and having the children programme it to visit the houses on the map, which they label 1-6?(ICT)

good luck

Oooo I like that one Chocisgood!

 

How about sharing cat biscuits (you could you use Bonio's) between the 7 bowls for the week, how many in each bowl?

 

Tenuous link I know but ...

Of course, that wouldn't be a problem - how do I find it? I am not very good on this website so will need a step by step guide to help me find your survey! :( Thanks again for your ideas. Catherine xD
