Year 1

Hello Year 1's.



Today we would like you create your own giant! You might choose to draw, paint, chalk or sketch a giant. You might choose to use old clothes or playdough, it's completely up to you.

Once you have created your giant we would like to to describe it. Think about using adjectives for description. 

Below is a picture of the giant to help you.

Can you describe:

  • size
  • colour
  • age
  • appearance
  • texture
  • facial expression



Yesterday we used the non-standard units to measure the giants hand. Today we would like you to find things around your house to first estimate the length in centimetres, (a centimetre is roughly the tip of your little finger) then measure the length in centimetres. How close were your estimates?

Below is a sheet to help you or create your own.



Can you create a beanstalk? Be as creative as you like, below are some examples for inspiration, we would love to see your creations on dojo.
