White Rose: session 4 https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/early-years/light-and-dark-week-3/
Describe events, for example what you do in the morning, afternoon and before bed.
You could draw these in order, act them out or talk about them with you family.
You could think about animals that you see in the day and those that come out at night.
Reread the story. Imagine you are on a journey through Mexico.
What are the best bits of the journey?
Create your journey (like a timeline). Select your favourite things for example seeing the grey whales or climbing the pyramids. Draw your favourite things and underneath write a label or a caption. E.g. I can see or I am.
Teach the digraphs ‘or’ using Bug Club. https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0

The "Ojo de Dios" or God's Eye is an ancient symbol made by the Huichol Indians of Mexico. In Mexico, The central eye was made when a child was born. Each year, a bit of yarn was added until the child turned five at which point the Ojo was complete.
You need two sticks and some wool.
Glue the sticks together in the shape of a cross and let them dry (this isn't necessary, but makes it easier).
Wrap the wool once around 1, once around 2, once around 3, once around 4 (you can mark the sticks with 1, 2, 3, 4 to make it easier for you to keep track of what you are doing).
Continue on... Once around 1, once around 2, etc until you're happy with the first layer of the eye.
Snip the first colour of wool and tie on a second colour. Continue on with the second colour and then a third, fourth and fifth as desired.
