Thursday 25.3.21

Today our learning is going to be

Grammar

Phonics

Numeracy

Reading

 

First, let’s do some grammar learning!

 

 

 

Today’s grammar lesson is a pre-recorded session on Teams. Please log in to your Teams account and access Files.

 

 

Then click on today’s folder and open the video.

 

 

Today in our lesson, we are going to be learning about singular and plural.

 

 

 

 

 

Good job, let’s move on to…

 

 

 

 

All this week’s phonics lessons are going to be live via Teams, please check your child’s group times.

 

Miss Heaton’s group are going to continue looking at the split digraphs i-e, o-e and u-e.

We will be reading the words using the below success criteria.

 

Spot the digraph

Say the phonemes

Blend it

Check it

 

We will be practicing our learning by completing a roll and read.

 

 

Now let’s apply our learning by circling the pictures that match the sentences.

 

 

 

Mrs Wray’s group are going to be spelling words with the digraphs th and ng. We are going to be using the success criteria below to help us.

 

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it

 

 Today we are going to be completing a roll and write challenge.

 

Let’s move on to…

 

 

Today we are going to be adding using a number line. Let's take a look together at the below sum.

 

 

To work out this sum, we would start by circling the number 11 on our number line. Like below…

 

 

Next, we need to add 6 by making 6 jumps on our number line. It is very important that our jumps land on the next numbers. We do this slowly and precisely, so that we don’t miss out any numbers and miscount.

 

 

The last number that we land on is the answer to our sum.

 

 

Let’s also take a look at the below sum together and consider which number to circle first…

 

 

When we read number sentences we read from the left to right. We could start by circling the number 3 on our number line below.

 However, that would mean we would need to do 14 jumps. This is time-consuming and we are more likely to make a mistake and miscount.

 

 

As this sum is an addition, we can reverse the order of these parts and start instead on number 14. This way we would only need to do 3 jumps.

 

 

You can see from the above, that the answer is 17 in both instances. This works because the order that the numbers are added together does not make a difference to the total. However, this is different for subtraction so the same rule does not apply.

 

 Please have a go at the sheet below and let me know how you get on.

 

 

Fantastic, now for our final piece of learning for today.

24/3/21

Hello! Are you ready for today’s home learning?

Let’s see what we are going to be focusing on today.

 

Literacy

Numeracy

Phonics

Reading

 

Let’s get started with our…

 

 

 

Today in literacy we are going to be putting into practice the skills we have learned from yesterday. We will be ensuring our sentences contain all of our non-negotiables.

 

 

 

A simple sentence we may choose to write could look like this…

David Attenborough has two brothers.

 

 

 

If we are confident in our fact writing, we can also introduce the use of sentence openers such as:-

 

Did you know that…?

It is true that…

It is a fact that…

 

 

Your sentence may then look like the below…

It is true that David Attenborough has two brothers.

 

 

 

Then as an additional challenge we can then try and join two of our facts together by using the conjunction ‘and’.

It is true that David Attenborough has two brothers and that he grew up in Leicester.

 

 

Great, let’s move on to

 

 

All this week’s phonics lessons are going to be live via Teams, please check your child’s group times.

 

Miss Heaton’s group are going to continue looking at the split digraphs i-e, o-e and u-e.

We will be reading the words using the below success criteria.

 

Spot the digraph

Say the phonemes

Blend it

Check it

 

Then we will be practising by completing a race game.

 

 

 

Now let’s apply our learning with a sentence roll and read.

 

 

Mrs Wray’s group are going to be practising our th and ng digraph blending. By completing a race game.

 

 

Now let’s apply our learning by circling the picture that the sentence matches.

 

 

 

Well done! Let’s move on to

 

 

 

Today’s numeracy lesson is a pre-recorded session on Teams. Please log into your Teams account and access Files.

 

 

Then click on today’s folder and open the video.

 

 

 

Today I will be modelling how to add using jottings. Specifically, we will be learning how to add a single digit number to a 2-digit number.

7 + 12 =

 

Firstly, we would add our jottings

 

Then we need to count up and put our answer.

 

 

 

Next we will be realising as we work through our learning that we don’t have to count all our jottings.

Instead we can start from the largest number and then add the smaller amount on.

 

 

Now you can have a go at the below sheet and write the answers in your jotters.

 

 

 

Well done! Now for our final challenge of the day

Are you ready to begin your learning?

Today we are going to be looking at

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

Reading

 

Let’s begin with

 

 

Today’s literacy lesson is pre-recorded. Please log into your Teams account and access Files.

 

 

Then click on today’s folder and open the video.

 

Today I will be modelling how to use the remembered facts about David Attenborough to write our own sentences.

The sentences will include all our non-negotiables.

 

 

 

Let’s move on to

 

 

All this week’s phonics lessons are going to be live via Teams, please check your child’s group times.

 

Miss Heaton’s group are going to continue looking at the split digraphs i-e, o-e and u-e.

We will be reading the words using the below success criteria.

Spot the digraph

Say the phonemes

Blend it

Check it

 

Then we will be sorting words into the correct split digraph columns.

 

 

Next we will be applying our phonics knowledge by reading the sentences and then circling either yes or no.

 

 

Mrs Wray’s group are going to be practising our blending skills by completing a Connect 4.

 

 

Then we will be applying our phonics knowledge by linking the sentences to the pictures.

 

 

 

Now on to

 

 

In numeracy today we are going to be looking at adding a single digit number to a two-digit number using a part part whole model.

 

You may want to use a piece of spaghetti or maybe a twig to represent a ten and either buttons or maybe pebbles again to represent your ones.

 

 

We start by putting our separate amounts into each of our parts.

 

 

 

 

Next, we combine them into our whole. Then we count the total in our whole to work out the answer

 

 

13 + 7 = 20

 

 

 

We remember too that 10 ones can be exchanged for 1 ten.

 

 

 

Also, that regardless of which way we position our part part whole model, the circle that has two lines attached to it is always the whole.

 

 

Brilliant, now onto our last piece of learning for today

21/3/21

 

Hello, I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are ready for this week’s home learning.

Let’s see what we are going to be focusing on today.

 

Literacy

Numeracy

Phonics

Reading

 

Let’s get started with our…

 

 

This week in Literacy we are going to be learning about the life and work of broadcaster and natural historian David Attenborough.

 

 

 

 You can learn all about his life and work from the below YouTube clip…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAh-U0WBfl4

 

 

Great, now you are familiar with the life of David Attenborough I wonder if you can have a go at recalling the below facts.

 

 

He grew up in Leicester, England with his two brothers and his parents.

 

 

David loved reading books about nature and animals.

 

 

He films animals in their natural habitats (in their own homes).

 

 

Many animals and plants are named after him.

 

 

He received a knighthood in 1985 and is now called Sir David.

 

 

He continues to care about the natural world and he encourages everyone to look after it.

 

 

Now you need to practice rehearsing and verbalising these facts to your grown-ups. See how many David Attenborough facts you can remember.

 

 

Let’s move on to…

 

 

 

Today we are going to be adding two numbers using two ten frames.

 

Let's have a look at one together. We need 7 red
counters and 9 yellow ones. Or you could use cheerios and buttons. Or perhaps even pebbles and peas.

 

Make sure you fill the first 10 frame before
moving on to the second one.

 

 

So the answer after counting all of the counters together is…

 

7 + 9 = 16

 

 

What about if we use words instead of the +
symbol?

What words can you think of for + ?

 

plus, add, addition, altogether, the sum of…

 

 

 

So the answer after adding all of the counters together is…

 

6 plus 8 = 14

 

 

Well done, let’s have a look at...

 

 

 

 

Phonics lessons will be live via Teams, please check the times for your group.

 

 

Let’s begin with Miss Heaton’s group. Today we are going to be looking at the split digraphs i-e, o-e and u-e.

 

On the live lesson you are going to practice building words by using grapheme tiles.

 

***Don’t forget all our words this week in phonics will be using split digraphs***

 

 

Now have a go at applying your phonics skills by reading the below sentences for meaning.

 

 

Remember to use the success criteria when blending our words 

 

Spot the digraphs

Blend the phonemes

Say the word out loud.

 

 

Mrs Wray’s group are going to be looking at digraphs th and ng.

Have a go at identifying the digraph in the words and deciding which monkey gets the bananas.

 

 

 

Now have a go at applying your phonics skills by reading the below sentences.

 

 

 

 

Great work, now for your reading challenge

 

 

You need to log into your ActiveLearn account, if you are unsure of your password please email me and I will resend them to you.

Friday

19/3/21

Happy Red Nose Day everyone!

 

 

It may be a little different this year, but I hope you can still all enjoy today.

Please do dress up to join me on our live phonics lessons too.

 

Are ready for today’s home learning?

Let’s see what we are going to be focusing on today.

Literacy

Numeracy

Phonics

 

Let’s get started with our…

 

 

Today in literacy we are going to be writing up our own “Superworm” stories.

 

 We have been using a story plan in class to help us organise our ideas. We have partitioned the story into three sections.

 

  1. Introduction
  2. Problem (kidnapped)
  3. Solution (rescued)

 

We then added key words to help us write our stories.

 

Let’s take a look at an example of a story plan with key words on below…

 

 

***If you are struggling to remember your own story plans please email me and I will email you a copy of your own story plan straight back***

 

You can see from the above that we are going to be including the below in our writing.

 

Story language

Adjectives  

Similes

Non-negotiables

 

So now we need to convert our plan and key words into sentences. If we take the first section (Introduction / setting), please see how we can convert the key words from this section into full sentences as follows…

 

 

 

 

 

Then we need to repeat this for the second and third sections too.

 

Great work! Now let’s move on to

 

 

Today we are going to be segmenting words.

Miss Heaton’s group are going to practice segmenting words using the ie, oe, and ue digraphs.

Remember to follow the success criteria

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it

 

Look at the pictures below and see if you can segment the words.

 

(blue, fries, glue, toe, doe, rescue, tie, clue)

 

Once you have segmented all of these words, can you choose 2 or 3 and write sentences for them?

 

Mrs Wray’s group are also going to be segmenting words too, using the ch and sh digraphs.

 

(chin, shop, chop, mash, dish, rich)

 

When you have segmented all of the words can you choose a picture and write a sentence for it?

 

Great, let’s move on to

 

For today’s Numeracy lesson we are going to be ordering numbers.

 

We must remember to carefully read how we are going to be ordering our numbers.

So we need to double check what the question is asking and then we need to understand the language of…

 

least to most

1,2,3,4,5

and

most to least

5,4,3,2,1

Next we have to be careful to check the digits of a number in the right order.

When comparing two digit numbers we need to look at the tens digit first.

 

22   35   21

Then if these are the same, we look at the ones digit.

 

22   35   21

 

Please have a go at the sheet below.

 

 

Great work everyone.

That is all of our learning for today.

Don’t forget to send a picture of your learning in for me to see.

Have a lovely weekend and take care.

Hello! Are ready for our final day of home learning?

Let’s see what we are going to be focusing on today.

Literacy

Numeracy

Phonics

PSHE

Let’s get started with our

 

 

Today’s Literacy lesson is going to be a SPaG focus. We are going to be learning about question.

 

 

A question is a sentence that is asking something, something that we want an answer for.

Watch the BBC Bitesize video on questions for more information.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/z2xdng8

 

 

Let’s have a look at the words that a question might begin with.

Who?

What?

When?

Where?

Why?

How?

Can?

 

At the end of a question we need to include a question mark to punctuate it instead of a full stop.

 

 

Can you think of any questions you would like to ask Julia Donaldson?

 

Have a think of 3 or 4 questions (you can do more if you would like) that you would like to ask Julia Donaldson. Record them in your jotter.

 

Great work! Now let’s move on to

 

 

Today we are moving on to segmenting words.

Miss Allen’s group are going to practice segmenting words using the au, ew, and ey digraphs.

Remember to follow the success criteria

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it

 

Look at the pictures below and see if you can segment the words.

 

 

(Autumn, key, drew, money, turkey, screw, sauna, stew)

 

Once you have segmented all of these words, can you choose 2 or 3 and write sentences for them?

 

Mrs Ibbotson’s group are also going to be segmenting. You have a roll and write game to complete, I have put phoneme frames on this activity. You need to make sure you put a phoneme in each box.

 

 

(step, twig, spot, skip, slip, drip, clip, trim)

When you have segmented all of the words can you choose a picture and write a sentence for it?

 

Great, let’s move on to

 

 

For today’s Numeracy lesson I would like you to have a go at completing the pages on Comparing Time in your White Rose maths booklet.

 

 

Let’s have a look at our final lesson

 

 

 

Today in PSHE we are going to be learning about the importance of exercise.

What sort of exercise do you like doing?

Can you make a list in your jotters or tell someone?

 

 

 

Did you know that children should aim for 60 minutes of activity each day?

 

 

Change 4 life has lots of fun activities you can do.

Have a look and see which activities you would like to try.

 

https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/activities

 

Great work everyone! That is all of our learning done for today!

We look forward to seeing you all back in school on Monday!

Phonics

RE

 

Let’s get started with our

Today in literacy we are going to using the key words that we thought of yesterday and write them up as a set of instructions for someone else to use to make a Stick Man.

 

Can you remember what we need to include to write a good set of instructions?

 

Time connectives

Imperative verbs (bossy words)

Clear instruction

Non-negotiables

 

An example of instructions writing can be found on Teams dated 11.2.21.

 

Today we are moving on to segmenting words.

Miss Heaton’s group are going to practice segmenting words using the au, ew, and ey digraphs.

Remember to follow the success criteria

Say it

Look at the pictures below and see if you can segment the words.

 

(haunted, chimney, launch, jewel, donkey, chew)

Once you have segmented all of these words, can you choose 2 or 3 and write sentences for them?

 

Mrs Wray’s group are also going to be segmenting. You have a roll and write game to complete, I have put phoneme frames on this activity. You need to make sure you put a phoneme in each box.

 

(clap, flag, slug, swim, twin, frog, drum, crib, trap, crab, plug, pram)

 

When you have segmented all of the words can you choose a picture and write a sentence for it?

 

 

 

 

Great, let’s move on to

For today’s Numeracy lesson I would like you to have a go at completing the pages on Writing Time in your White Rose maths booklet.

 

Let’s have a look at our final lesson for today.

 

 

 

Today in RE we are going to be thinking about special places.

What makes a place special?

A special place is somewhere where you feel safe and secure.

This might be in the classroom, it might be your house or a relative’s house.

 

For example I feel really safe when I’m at my nana’s house.

 

Sometimes a special place can be a place of worship. Churches are special places for Christians. Mosques are special places for Muslims and Synagogues are special places for Jewish people.

 

What is your special place?

If it somewhere personal to you or is it a place of worship?

Have a go at drawing a picture and writing a sentence about your special place.

 

Great work everyone.

That is all of our learning for today.

Today we are just focusing on key words that we will use in our writing.

What was the first thing you did?

I might write First get stick.

What did you do next?

Don’t forget to add your time connectives and an imperative verb to your key words.

How many different time connectives can you think of?

 

Maybe you would like to draw pictures to go along with your key words to help you remember the order you did things.

 

Great, let’s move on to

Phonics lessons will be live via Teams, please check the times for your group.

Miss Heaton’s group are going to be doing the final blending day with the digraphs ew, ey and au.

Brilliant, let’s move on to our next piece of learning

 

 

Today’s numeracy lesson is a pre-recorded lesson that you will be able to find in Teams.

Today is a practical lesson, so you will need the clock you made last week for this session.

 

Now you have learnt about how to make the time to half past on your clock, I would like you to go away and practice with a grown up. See if they can give you some times to half past the hour for you to practice making on your own clock.

 

Remember the minute hand needs to be pointing to the 6 for half past the hour.

 

Great work! Let’s move on to

Phonics lessons will be live via Teams, please check the times for your group.

 

Miss Heaton’s group are going to continue their blending work using the digraphs au, ew and ey.

Remember to follow the success criteria

Have a go at reading the words in the Connect 4 game below.

 

Excellent! Now let’s apply our blending skills by reading the sentences below and deciding which picture matches it.

 

 

 

 

Mrs Wray’s phonics group will be continuing their learning on blending CCVC words. Have a go at the Roll and Read game below.

Don’t forget to blend all of the phonemes.

Great work! Now let’s apply our learning by having a go at reading the sentences and matching them to the correct pictures.

 

 

Well done everyone! Now on to our final piece of learning for today

 

Today in Art I would like you to think back to all of the pencil techniques we used last term.

 

 

Your challenge is to choose a character from a Julia Donaldson book and using pencil have a go at sketching it using the techniques we know.

 

 

Great work everyone! Now that you have finished all of today’s learning, don’t forget to send us a picture.

Monday

Hello, I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are ready for this week’s home learning.

Let’s see what we are going to be focusing on today.

 

Literacy

Numeracy

Phonics

Science

 

Let’s get started with our…

 

 

This week in Literacy we are going to be using the story of Stick Man.

 

 

 If you are unfamiliar with the story you can watch the short film on iPlayer here https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b06t09rk/stick-man

Or listen to the story being read here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUdtUIr5jrk&safe=active

 

Great now you are familiar with the story let’s begin.

Today we are going to be focusing on using the word ‘I’ in our writing. I would like you to have a look at the pictures on the sheet and write speech bubbles for what Stick Man might be saying in different parts of the story.

We are going to be writing in first person, so you are pretending to be Stick Man. We need to use the word ‘I’.

 

For example if I have a look at the first picture I could write…

 


I have taken my learning further by expanding my sentence using the word because to give more detail.

Have a look at the pictures on the sheet below and think about how you would feel if you were Stick Man. What is happening to you?

Make sure you use the word ‘I’ and if you have been asked to expand your sentences using because or and I would like to see that in your learning too.

 

 

 

Let’s move on to…

 

 

Today’s numeracy lesson is going to be a pre-recorded session on Teams. Please watch the input first before accessing the task. You will need the clock you made last week for this session.

 

Great, now you are ready to move on to practising reading the time to half past the hour. Ask your grown up to have a go at making some half past times on your clock and see if you can tell the time.

 

Well done, let’s have a look at…

 

 

Phonics lessons will be live via Teams, please check the times for your group.

 

Let’s begin with Miss Heaton’s group. Today we are going to be looking at the new digraphs au, ew and ey.

 

Remember to use the success criteria

Spot the digraphs

Blend the phonemes

Say the word out loud.

 

Now have a go at applying your phonics skills with a sentence roll and read.

 

Mrs Wray’s group are going to be moving on to looking at CCVC. There are still no digraphs in these words, just 4 phonemes to blend.

Have a go at blending the words on the snakes and ladders game below.

 

Now have a go at applying your phonics skills with a sentence roll and read.

 

Great work, now onto our final lesson of today...

 

 

Today in Science we are going to be learning all about fish!

To begin I would like you to watch the following video on BBC Bitesize.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv/articles/zxgq2hv

 

Have a go at the activity below to practise what we have just learnt.

 

 

 

Now have a go at the quiz.

 

 

Well done, I have found a song all about fish that I would like you to now listen to.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p085llyd/andys-raps-aquatic-5-fish-fiesta

 

 

 

Now we have learnt all about fish, I would like you to take your learning further by choosing a fish that you think is interesting and find out 3 facts about it. Write the facts in your jotters.

 

Well that is the end of our home learning for today.

Don’t forget to send pictures of your learning in to show us what you have been learning.

 

Friday 26.2.21

Today our learning is going to be

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

PSHE

 

 

First, let’s do some Literacy learning!

 

 

Today in Literacy we are going to be focusing on our SPaG learning. Today we are going to be learning about the prefix un. A prefix can be added to the beginning of a word to change its meaning. The prefix un usually means not.

For example fair          unfair

Watch this BBC bitesize video all about prefixes.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z8mxrwx/articles/z9hjwxs

Can you have a go at adding the prefix un to these words?

Pick a word, add the prefix un and write it in your jotter.

 

Can you think of any other words that have the suffix un?

          

 

Well done, now let’s move onto...

 

 

Today in Phonics we are going to be spelling words, don’t forget our success criteria for spelling words:

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it

 

Please join your teacher for your daily phonics live learning.

 

Miss Heaton’s group are learning how to spell words with wh and ph this week. We are going to be completing a spelling challenge.

 

Mrs Wray’s group are going to be learning how to spell phase 4 CVCC words. Today we are going to be completing a spelling challenge.

 

 

Let’s take a look at our learning for today. Today we are going to be telling the time to the hour. We would like you to complete the following pages from your workbook.

 

 

 
   

 

Now for our final piece of learning…

 

 

 

Today we are going to be continuing our learning about keeping healthy by looking at how we keep our teeth healthy.

We get one set of teeth as babies and as we grow up these fall out and we get our adult teeth. It is really important that we look after our teeth and keep them healthy and strong.

We can keep them healthy by

  • Brushing regularly
  • Going to the dentist
  • Eating and drinking low sugar foods.
  •  

First you need to watch the PowerPoint on Teams about keeping teeth healthy.

 

 You also need to watch this video about brushing teeth.

 

 
   

 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQE4xxk1r5g&safe=active

 

Then take a look at this Hey Duggee song all about keeping our teeth healthy.

 

 

 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/tooth-brushing-badge-song?collection=hey-duggee-collection

 

After you’ve done that can you make a poster about keeping your teeth healthy? Pick one thing that you need to do and make a poster. Use pictures and colours and to make it eye-catching and bright!

 

 

That’s it for this week! Don’t forget to email your learning to your class email.

Have a lovely weekend!

 

 

Thursday 25.2.21

Today our learning is going to be

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

RE

 

First, let’s do some Literacy learning!

 

 

Yesterday we talked about the character of the mouse from the story The Gruffalo.

We used some key words to describe the mouse’s personal traits.

 

Today we are going to put these into sentences. When we do this we need to make sure we use all the non-negotiables.

 

 

For example

The mouse is clever.

We could also take our learning further by adding in a sentence opener.

It is true that the mouse is clever.

If we wanted to take it even further than that we could use the conjunction because to add some evidence from the story.

It is true that the mouse is clever because he tricked the Gruffalo.

Have a go at describing the mouse. Don’t forget to take a picture of your learning to send to your teacher.

 

Great, next let’s take a look at...

 

 

 

 

Today in Phonics we are going to be spelling words, don’t forget our success criteria for spelling words:

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it

Please join your teacher for your daily phonics live learning.

Miss Heaton’s group are learning how to spell words with wh and ph this week. We are going to be completing a writing challenge.

 

Mrs Wray’s group are going to be spelling phase 4 CVCC words. Today we are going to be completing a writing challenge.

 

 

Now let’s take a look at our Numeracy learning for today.

We are going to be learning about making time to the hour.

 

Please watch the pre-recorded session on Teams.

You will need to have your clock made and ready for the session.

 

 

 

 

 

Fantastic, now for our final piece of learning for today.

 

Today we are going to think about Hanukkah – the Jewish festival of light.

Lots of people use light to celebrate in different ways, can you think of any?

 

 

Today we are going to be thinking about the festival of Hanukkah. First, let’s watch a video about the story of Hanukkah.

 

 
                        

                                 

 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/religious-studies-ks1-the-jewish-story-of-hanukkah/z47wxyc

 

 

Can you explain what the festival of Hanukkah is about? What is the Menorah? Why are the candles lit each day?

 

                                                                                                       

 

Can you either tell another person or write some sentences in your jotter?

 

That’s all of our learning for today!

Music

 

Let’s begin with

Today in Literacy we are going to look at a different character from The Gruffalo.

We are going to be focusing on mouse and looking at his personal characteristics.

 

When we are writing about personal characteristics, we are thinking about what the characters are like on the inside.

What type of character is the mouse?

Is he kind or mean?

 

Have a go at writing some key words for the personal traits of the mouse.

Record your key words and we will use them tomorrow.

 

Let’s move on to our next piece of learning

 

All this week’s phonics lessons are going to be live via Team, please check your child’s group times.

 

Miss Heaton’s group are going to continue looking at the two new digraphs wh and ph.

Have a go at reading them in the words below.

Remember when blending words we need to

Spot the digraph

Say the phonemes

Blend it

Check it

Can you apply your learning by reading the sentences below and matching them to the correct pictures?

 

Mrs Wray’s group are going to continue blending words with two consonants at the end or at the start of the word. Have a go at reading them in the game below.

 

Can you apply your learning by reading the sentences below and matching them to the correct pictures?

 

Well done, let’s move on to

 

Today’s numeracy lesson is a pre-recorded session that you will need to watch on Teams. We are going to learn all about reading the time on an analogue clock, we are just going to be focusing on reading o’clock times today. You will find it in the file called Wednesday 24.2.21

Now you have watched the video, ask your grown up to make an o’clock time and see if you can tell what time they made.

Let’s begin with...

 

 

Today in literacy we are going to be using the key words and similes that you thought of yesterday for personal characteristics of the Gruffalo.

When we are writing today I would like you to focus on different sentence openers. Here are some ideas;

I can see that…

Did you know that…?

If you look closely you can see…

It is clear that…

When I look at the Gruffalo…

 

 

Can you think of anymore?

 

The second thing I am looking for in your writing is some evidence of using similes. It is important to get the balance between sentences that contain similes and those that don’t otherwise your writing gets repetitive.

 

Make sure you don’t forget your non-negotiables when writing!

Monday

22/2/21

Hello everyone, I hope you had a lovely half term!

Are you ready to begin your learning?

Today we are going to be looking at

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

Science

 

Let’s begin with

 

This week in Literacy we are looking at the book

 

 

If you would like to watch the film for The Gruffalo you can find it on BBC iPlayer here

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00pk64x/the-gruffalo

Or alternatively you can listen to the story being read here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8sUPpPc8Ws&safe=active

 

Brilliant, now you have familiarised yourself with the story, let’s begin.

This session has a pre-recorded video that goes along with it. You can find this on Teams in the file Literacy 22.2.21

 

Today, we are thinking about a character description of the Gruffalo, looking at his physical traits.

Can you remember what a physical trait is?

A physical trait is what the Gruffalo looks like.

Let’s have a look at the picture below.

 

 

What can you see?

Let’s write some key words around the Gruffalo focusing on his physical traits.

 

Well done, now we are going to take our learning further and learn about similes.

A simile is used to help us describe something, when using a simile we are saying that something is like something else. We would write;

                   ____ is as ____ as a _____.

Let’s have a look at one together.

 

If I look at the Gruffalo’s eyes, I can see they are orange. I am now going to think of something else that we know is orange that I can use in my simile.

I know that pumpkins are orange so I might write;

The Gruffalo’s eyes are as orange as a pumpkin.

 

How about if we look at his fur. I can see that his fur is quite fluffy, so I might write;

His fur is as soft as a kitten.

 

What similes can you think of to describe the Gruffalo?

Maybe you can think of 2 or 3 to use in your writing. We don’t want all of your ideas to be similes as we use similes to make our writing more interesting, so if they were all similes if might be repetitive.

 

Excellent, let’s move on to our next piece of learning…

 

 

All this week’s phonics lessons are going to be live via Teams, please check your child’s group times.

 

Miss Heaton's group are going to be looking at the two new digraphs wh and ph.

Have a go at reading them in the words below.

Remember to follow the success criteria

Spot the digraph

Say the phonemes

Blend it

Check it

 

 

Mrs Wray's group are going to be moving on to Phase 4.

 

**Information for grown-ups on this phase**

This phase focuses on CVCC and CCVC words.

CCVC words and CVCC words are words which follow specific letter sequences of consonant and vowel sounds. “Stop” is a CCVC word whereas “Post” is a CVCC word

CCVC words follow the letter sequence Consonant-Consonant-Vowel-Consonant. 

CVCC words, however, follow the letter sequence Consonant-Vowel-Consonant-Consonant.

 

This term the children will be learning how to blend words with two consonants at the end or at the start of the word.  It is important to use pure sounds when blending as listening for mores sounds in words is tricky.

 

The words for this week do not contain any digraphs.

 

The success criteria will be slightly different this week:

Say the phonemes

Blend the phonemes

Say the word out loud

 

Have a go at reading them in the game below.

 

 

Now let’s move on to

 

 

This week in Numeracy we are going to begin working on time. 

There is no video to watch for this activity. I would like you to have a go at completing the before and after pages in your new White Rose booklet.

 

 

 

 

Well done, now onto our final piece of learning for today

 

 

Today in Science we are going to be learning about birds.

I would like you to visit https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv/articles/zyd6hyc

And have a watch of the video clip to begin.

 

 

Now have a go at the activity.

 

 

Finally let’s see what you have learnt by completing the quiz.

 

 

 

Excellent, that is all of today’s home learning.

First, let’s do some Literacy learning!

 

 

Today in literacy we will be focusing on writing sentences in the past and present tense by adding either the ed or ing suffix to a verb.

When we add a suffix it changes the meaning of a word. When we add ed to a verb it turns it into the past tense. When we add ing to a verb it turns it into the present tense.

Let’s take a look at a verb together...

 

clean

I can use this in the past or present tense for example:

I am cleaning my kitchen.

I cleaned the bathroom yesterday.

Find out more in the recorded lesson on Teams.

Choose a verb from the choices below and then have a go at writing a sentence in both the past and present tense in your jotter.

These were...

 

Time connectives – to tell us in what order to do things in.

Imperative verbs (bossy words) – to tell us exactly what we need to do.

They must be clear and specific – so we don’t get confused.

Each instruction must start on a new line.

Must include non-negotiables

 

 

 

 

Now we need to use these to write our own set of instructions for making a sandwich.

 

Please watch the recorded input on Teams for more information about today’s learning.

Let’s have a look at what we are going to be learning

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

PSHE

 

Let’s begin with

Today’s lesson is a pre-recorded session on Teams.

You will need to look for the file called Literacy 10.2.21.

 

In today’s lesson we are going to be looking at the features of a good set of instructions.

Have a look at this video clip below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ct-lOOUqmyY&safe=active

What did you notice about the instructions the children were giving to their dad to make the sandwich?

That’s right our instructions need to be very clear otherwise the Highway Rat will not be able to follow them properly.

 

Let’s recap what a good set of instructions must include.

Time connectives – to tell us in what order to do thing.

Imperative verbs (bossy words) – to tell us exactly what we need to do.

They must be clear and specific – so we don’t get confused.

Each instruction must start on a new line.

Must include non-negotiables – Capital letter, finger spaces and full stops.

 

 

Let’s move on to

Today in Numeracy we are going to be looking at comparing objects to 50.

Before you begin please watch the video below.

https://vimeo.com/503099894

 

Now have a go at answering the pages below in your White Rose booklet.

 

Excellent maths! Let’s move on to

This week’s phonics sessions will all be live via Teams, please check which group your child is in and what time the session is at.

 

Today is our last blending day for this week. Make sure when we are blending you follow the success criteria.

Miss Heaton’s group are going to continue their work on blending words with the ir and aw digraphs, have a go at the game below.

 

Mrs Wray’s group are continuing the recap of all the phase 3 digraphs and trigraphs, have a go at the game below.

 

Great work, now onto our final piece of learning for the day

 

In PSHE we are continuing our work on keeping healthy. Today our focus is going to be on different drinks.

What is your favourite drink?

Did you know that drinks contain sugar?

 

Sugar can be bad for us if we have too much of it.

Adults should have no more than 7 teaspoons of sugar a day.

Children aged 7 – 10 should have no more than 6 teaspoons of sugar a day.

Children aged 4 – 6 should have no more than 5 teaspoons of sugar a day.

Today we are going to do a guessing activity. I will show you a sheet with different drinks on it. Your job is to guess how many teaspoons of sugar are in each drink. Record your guess then check back and watch the video where I will show you how many spoons of sugar there are.

 

Great work! Have you done your guess for each drink?

Now watch the video and see if you were right!

Watch the pre-recorded video on Teams to see the answers, you will find it in the file called PSHE 10.2.21

Good morning! Are you ready to begin this week’s home learning?

Let’s have a look at what we are going to be learning:

 

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

RE

 

Let’s jump in and begin with…

 

Yesterday you were asked to help the Highway Rat to stop stealing food by teaching him how to make his own food. Did you make a sandwich to show him how to do it?

Can you help me to put my pictures in the right order?

Have a look at the pictures below and see if you can sort them out for me.

 

 

Excellent! Now all of my pictures are in the correct order let’s have a look at time connectives.

Can you remember what a time connective is?

A time connective tells us in which order to do things.

Here are some time connectives we might use

First

Next

After that

Now

Then

Finally

 

Can you think of any more time connectives we could use?

We will also use imperative verbs when writing instructions. Imperative verbs are bossy words they tell us what to do, here are some we might use

put

get

spread

cut

place

 

Look at each picture. On a piece of paper or a post it note, choose which time connective and imperative verb you could use in that instruction.

Just write down the key words not the actual full instruction.

 

Which time connective would you begin with?

Which imperative verb are you going to use?

 

For example my first instruction might be;

First get two slices of white bread.

 

Now you have added your time connectives and imperative verbs, can you practise verbalising your instructions? Don’t forget to begin with the time connective and imperative verb you want to use.

 

Super work! Let’s move on to...

 

 

Today we are going to continue our work on one more and one less. You will be completing the second part of the worksheet from yesterday.

Before you begin watch the video below.

This week in RE we are going to be looking at the Jewish celebration Shabbat.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now we have learnt all about Shabbat and the Jewish day of rest.

Let’s think about how people can rest in different ways.

Resting is really important for everyone.

 Have you heard the story Peace at Last?

Read this story to find out what happened when Mr Bear tried to have a rest.

Watch the story being read here.

Good morning! Are you ready to begin this week’s home learning?

Let’s have a look at what we are going to be learning

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

Science

 

Let’s jump in and begin with

This week in Literacy we are going to be looking the story of The Highway Rat.

If you would like to watch the story of The Highway Rat you can watch it on the BBC iPlayer by following the link below.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b09kkt1k/the-highway-rat 

Alternatively you can listen to the story being read here.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZLsI4pm17A&safe=active

As we know from the story, the Highway Rat steals lots of food from the people he meets on the road. We thought it would be a good idea to teach him how to make his own food so he no longer has to steal.

Today we would like you to help Highway Rat by showing him how to make a sandwich. You can choose whatever filling you would like to use, but try to keep it simple with just 1 or 2 fillings.

Try to remember the steps you took to make the sandwich, as we will be using these tomorrow. If you can, it might be helpful to take pictures of the different steps you took to help you remember.

 

Great work! Was your sandwich yummy?

Let’s move on and have a look at

This week’s phonics sessions will all be live via Teams, please check which group your child is in and what time the session is at.

This week Miss Heaton’s group are going to be learning two new digraphs, ir and aw.

If you are joining the live lesson, please make sure you have access to the activity below.

 

 Mrs Wray’s group have come to the end of phase 3, therefore this week will be focusing on recapping all of the digraphs we have learnt so far in phase 3.

Remember to spot the digraphs in the words below first.

 

Great work! Now let’s move on to

Today in Numeracy we are going to be looking at finding one more and one less than a given number.

Please watch the video below to learn more.

https://vimeo.com/503093120

Once you have watched the video, have a go at completing just question 1 in your work books.

We will continue with this learning and answer the rest of the questions on this page tomorrow.

Can you write the numbers that are one more and one less than these numbers?

36, 47, 29, 26, 45, and 33.

 

Super work, now onto our final lesson of the day

Today we are going to continue our learning about animals.

This week we are going to be focusing on amphibians.

Watch the videos below to get you started.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv/articles/zc6br82

Now have a go at the quiz to see what you have learnt.

Well done, now I would like you to log in to Espresso. You have been sent the log in details via the School App. Once you have logged in have a go at sorting the animals.

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/primary_uk/subject/module/activity/item1158502/grade1/module1149557/index.html

 

Great work everyone. That is all of today’s learning complete. Don’t forget to send us a picture of your home learning.

Today our learning is going to be:

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

Computing

 

Let's begin with

Today we are going to continue our SPaG learning focusing on adding the suffixes ed and ing to words.

Can you remember how this affects the tense of the verb?

 

That’s right – we use the ed suffix to talk about something that happened in the past and the ing suffix to talk about something that is happening in the present.

If we take the verb paint

I painted my bedroom pink at the weekend.

 

I am painting my bedroom pink now.

Where are the verbs in these sentences? Which one is the present tense? Which one is the past tense?

For your learning today I would like you to look at the sentences, underline the verb and decide if it is the past or present tense.

Well done! Let's move on to

Today we are going to be continuing our work on segmenting words to write them.

Don’t forget our success criteria for spelling words.

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Miss Heatons’s group – we are going to be focusing on spelling words with the graphemes ea and oy. Let’s take a look at your learning.

**Please join the phase 5 phonics group for a live lesson at 2:15pm.**

 

(season, soy, beach, Joy, dream, beans, Roy, cream)

 

Mrs Wray's group – you are going to be spelling words containing the graphemes ure and er

**Please join the phase 3 phonics group for a live lesson at 9:30am.**

(sister, tower, printer, cure, hamper, manure)

 

Great, now let’s look at our next challenge.

 

 

Today we will be continuing our learning about place value. Please watch the following video.

https://vimeo.com/500468562

 

Then complete the following pages of your workbook.

 

Now let’s find out about our final piece of learning.

 

We are continuing with our learning about coding. When we use a computer we have to input a code or algorithm to get the computer to do what we want it to. This is called coding. We use algorithms in our lives every day – every time we follow a set of instructions or directions.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z3tbwmn/articles/z3whpv4

 

Watch this video to find out more about code.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z3tbwmn/articles/zykx6sg

 

Today we are going to be focussing on using some simple code for directions. We will use the directions forwards, backwards, left and right.

We will use these to direct someone to different spaces on this grid.

For example if I was at the start and I needed to get to the fox my code would be…

 

If I was at the start and I wanted to get to Zog my code would be

 

 

Have a go at directing another person to different character by creating an algorithm. You could draw your instructions in your jotter.

If your algorithm didn’t work then you will need to go back and debug to decide where it went wrong and try again. Watch the video below to find out more.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z3tbwmn/articles/ztgjq6f

 

                        

 

Well that is our learning for today!

Don't forget to send us pictures of your learning.

Have a lovely weekend.

Thursday

This week you have been planning your own story based on the book Room on the Broom. You have made a plan for your story and decided what you want to change. Today you are going to use your plan to write up your story.

**Please watch the pre-recorded video input for Literacy on Teams.**

 

It is really important that you include non-negotiables as well as some adventurous language and story language to make our story more interesting!

  • Capital letters
  • Finger spaces
  • Full stops
  • Accurate spelling and handwriting
  • Sentences make sense

 

Then to take your learning further you could add:

 

  • Story language
  • Adventurous language

When you planned your story you might have used key words or jotted down ideas. Today we need to make sure that we are using full sentences to write our story.

 

 

 

I would write this into a sentence:

Once upon a time there was a friendly witch who lived in a beautiful forest.

Then I would move onto the next box and continue writing the next part of my story.

Good luck! I am really looking forward to reading your stories today! Don’t forget to send evidence of your learning to a teacher.

Good morning!

Let’s have a look at what we are going to be learning:

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

RE

 

Let’s begin with

 

Today in Literacy we are going to be verbalising our story. You will need your story plan from yesterday’s lesson.

The aim of today is to orally rehearse our story so we have got it in our heads ready to write tomorrow. You will need to rehearse your story a few times so you know it really well.

You must make sure when you are verbalising your story that you include the story language you want to include in your story.

 

I always like to add actions to my story when I’m verbalising it as it helps me to remember it. Maybe you would like to add actions too.

It might be a good idea if you can, to record yourself verbalising your story so then you can watch it back and see if you want to change anything before you write it tomorrow.

 

Let’s move on to…

 

 

Today we are going to be focusing on counting forwards and backwards within 50.

You will need to watch the video below before you begin.

https://vimeo.com/500467345

 

 

Now have a go at answering these questions in your White Rose booklet.

 

     

 

Well done! Let’s move on to…

 

 

**Remember this will be taught through a live lesson so make sure you sign in to your Microsoft Teams account!**

 

Today is our last blending day of the week.

When blending it is important to remember to use the success criteria;

Spot the digraph

Blend the phonemes

Say the word out loud

 

Miss Heaton's group are going to continue blending using the digraphs oy and ea.

Have a go at the snakes and ladders game below.

 

Once you have done, have a go at the roll and read a sentence below.

 

 

Mrs Wray's group are going to continue their work on ure and er.

Have a go at the snakes and ladders game below.

 

 

Brilliant work!

Now onto our final lesson…

 

 

Today we are going to be learning about a Jewish celebration called Pesach which is also known as Passover.

 

 

Watch this video to learn all about Pesach.

https://www.bbc.com/bitesize/clips/zmq6sbk

 

 

Now you have learnt all about the celebration of Pesach, can you write down 4 things that Jewish people do to celebrate?

 

 

If you would like to learn more about the Seder plate you can watch the short video about it here.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYK4oB5F08A

 

Excellent learning!

Good morning! Are you ready to begin this week’s home learning?

Let’s have a look at what we are going to be learning:

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

History

 

Let’s jump in and begin with...

 

**There is a pre-recorded lesson available for this session. Please check your Microsoft Teams account.**

 

Today in Literacy we are going to use our ideas from yesterday and begin to plan our story.

It is really important when we write a story that we include story language. Here are some ideas of story language that you might like to include. Can you think of anymore?

Once up on a time…

All of a sudden…

Later that day…

Luckily…

And they all lived happily ever after…

 

When we plan our story we use a story plan.

 

 

We need to put our ideas in each box and include some story language.

Let’s look at the introduction/setting.

What story language should we use to begin our story?

Who is the main character?

Where is the story set?

Record your ideas.

 

Now we need to look at a problem, this is where you need your ideas from yesterday. What is the witch going to lose this time? Have a look and choose your favourite problem idea and record it in the problems part, don’t forget to think about what story language you could use here.

 

Now on to our solution. Which animal is going to help the witch find her lost item?

What story language could you use here? Record it in the solutions box.

Great, we are going to repeat this one more time with another problem and solution.

 

How are you going to end your story? Don’t forget to record this idea down at the end of the solution.

 

Excellent! Now you have planned your story, keep it safe as we will come back to this for tomorrow’s lesson

 

Now let’s move on to...

 

 

 

Today in Numeracy we are going to continue our learning on number to 50.

Before you begin you will need to watch the video below.

https://vimeo.com/500466597

 

 

Now have a go at answering these questions in your new White Rose booklet.

 

 

 

Super work! Let’s move on to...

 

**This week’s phonics learning is all going to be live on Teams if you can join us, check the time of your child’s group. **

 

This week in Phonics Miss Heaton’s group are going to be continuing their learning on the digraphs, ea and oy.

See if you can spot the digraphs in your roll and read, don’t forget to use the success criteria to help you blend the words.

 

Spot the digraph

Blend the phonemes

Say the word out loud

 

 

Mrs Wray’s group are going to be continuing to look at the digraph er and the trigraph ure.

 

 

Now on to our final piece of learning...

 

Today we are going to continue our work looking at Victorian’s and how they lived.

As we learnt last week, Charles Dickens was a Victorian author so he lived in a Victorian house. Julia Donaldson is a current author so she lives in a more modern house, like the ones we live in. Today we are going to be comparing houses like the Victorian one Charles Dickens lived in to modern one like Julia Donaldson lives in.

 

**We have put a PowerPoint presentation on Teams, please watch the presentation before beginning the activities. **

 

 

 

Now I would like you to have a look at the pictures of things found in homes and sort them to weather they belong in a Victorian home or a Modern home.

 

 

Great work everyone! Don’t forget to keep sending pictures of all of your learning in for us to see!

Good morning! Are you ready to begin this week’s home learning?

Let’s have a look at what we are going to be learning…

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

Science

 

Let’s jump in and begin with

This week in Literacy we are going to be focusing on the story Room on the Broom.

If you are unfamiliar with this story you can watch the short film on BBC iPlayer by following the link below.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p0102qfj/room-on-the-broom

Alternatively you can listen to the story being read below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHxGe44wSCI&safe=active

 

** This lesson is a pre-recorded lesson that you will find in today’s file on Teams. **

** Please watch the video for more information. **

 

Now you are familiar with the story, this week we are going to be writing our own version of Room on the Broom

Before we begin we need to firstly plan our story. Today we are going to be focusing on what problems the witch could have. In the story she keeps losing things. What else could she lose in your version of the story? Which animal could help her find it?

Today, I want you to think of as many different problems of things she could lose and the solution to which animals will help her find them.

If you think of what could be lost first, then add a line off that idea to show which animal might help find it, like I have shown below.

 

Record all of your ideas down in your jotters.

If you want, you could print the sheet below and record your ideas on there.

 

Excellent! Now let’s move on to

Today in Numeracy we are going to begin using our new White Rose booklets in our packs.

Today’s lesson is all about counting to 50 by making 10.

Watch the video below to find out more.

https://vimeo.com/500465193

 

 As today’s lesson is a practical lesson there is no work sheet to complete in your booklet, but maybe you could practice counting to 50 in different ways.

Can you count to 50 in 1’s?

What about counting to 50 in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s?

If your grown up gives you a number, can you count on from the given number to 50?

 

Great work! Let’s move on to

This week’s phonics learning is all going to be live on Teams if you can join us, check the time of your child’s group.

This week in Phonics Miss Heaton's group we are going to be looking at two new digraphs, ea and oy.

See if you can spot the digraphs in your race game and then use the success criteria to help you blend the words.

Spot the digraph

Say the phonemes

Blend it together

Say the word out loud.

 

Mrs Wray’s group are going to be looking at the new digraph er and the trigraph ure.

It is really important here to make sure you look carefully to spot the digraph or trigraph as they are very similar and might catch you out!

 

Now let’s move on to

Today we are going to be learning all about reptiles.

Watch the video below to find out more information.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv/articles/zp9pfg8

Once you have watched the video have a go at the activities and quiz below.

Well done, now I would like you to have a look at the animals below and decide if they are reptiles or not. Once you have decided can you write and sentence explain how you know if the animals are reptiles or not.

 

Great work everyone! Don’t forget to keep sending pictures of all of your learning in for us to see!

Good morning everyone. Let’s have a look at what we are going to be learning today.

 

Literacy

Numeracy

Phonics

Art

 

Let’s begin with our first lesson…

Today our Literacy focus is going to be SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar).

**This a pre-recorded lesson and can be found in your ‘file’ tab on your Microsoft Teams account. **

The session runs over 3 short video clips, so make sure that you watch them all to complete the lesson.

 

**Let’s recap the lesson:**

Today’s learning is focusing on adding the suffix (word ending) to a base word.

When we add the suffix –ed it changes the word to past tense.

When we add the suffix –ing it changes the word to present tense.

 

Let’s have a look.

play

played

playing

 

 I played with my Lego.

I am playing with my Lego.

 

Excellent. Now have a go yourself see if you can add the suffix /ed/ and /ing/ to the following base words:

 

paint

clean

cook

jump

count

brush

listen

shout

 

Super work. Let’s move on to our next piece of learning

 

 

We have reached the end of our unit of work in numeracy so today we will revisit the learning completed so far.

You should have this booklet in your packs.

For today’s learning we would like you to have a go at answering the questions in the booklet.

We aim to use this as an assessment opportunity so please encourage your child to complete the challenges independently.

 

Super. Now let’s have a look at what our next piece of learning…

Today in Phonics we are going to continue looking at segmenting words to spell them.

It is important to follow the success criteria

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it

 

Miss Heaton’s groups have got a spelling challenge to complete. Have a look at the pictures and use the success criteria to help to segment the words using the digraphs /ay/ and /ou/.

 

(holiday, ground, mouth, say, snout, play, spray, pouch)

 

Great. Now you have had a go at writing all of those words, choose 2 or 3 and have a go at writing them in sentences in your jotters.

 

Mrs Wray’s group is also segmenting. They are focusing on segmenting words using the trigraphs /air/ and /ear/.

Don’t forget to use the success criteria to help you.

(spear, stairs, year, lair, hear, hairbrush)

 

 

Super. Now you have had a go at writing all of those words, choose 1 or 2 and have a go at writing them in sentences in your jotters.

 

Let’s have a look at our final piece of learning…

For Art you will need to watch the videos below then using your playdough have a go yourself.

Thursday

28/1/21

 

Good morning everyone, let’s have a look at what we are going to be learning today.

Literacy

Numeracy

Phonics

PSHE

 

Let’s begin with our first lesson

Today in Literacy we are going to be using the facts we learnt about what humpback whales eat.

Let’s recap the facts that we learnt.

How many facts can you remember from yesterday?

Can you say them out loud or tell a grown up?

 

Excellent, now for today’s lesson we going to be working on writing the facts up in our own words.

 

 I would like you to concentrate on remembering your non- negotiables in your writing.

 

Some of you have been asked to use sentence openers in your writing.

Here are some ideas you might use;

It is an amazing fact that…

Did you know that…

An interesting fact about humpback whales is…

 

Can you think of any more sentence openers?

 

We also talked about using a conjunction to add extra information or to join two ideas together. Some of you had this as a target for your next piece of learning. You could use:

and

but

so

because

 

It is really important to always use your line guide when writing. I know I have mentioned this to a few people when marking your learning. Try to be mindful when using the line guide you make sure the letters are sat correctly on the line.

Once you have finished your writing make sure you send it to a teacher.

 

Now let’s have a look at our next lesson

 

Today in Numeracy we are going to be looking at Comparing Number Sentences.

 

First you will need to watch the video below.

https://vimeo.com/497920660

Once you have watched the video I would like you to have a go at completing these pages in your White Rose Maths booklet.

 

Great work, that should be all of the learning in your White Rose booklet completed.

Make sure you send us a picture.

 

Let’s see what we are doing in

 

Today is a segmenting day.

Remember to use our success criteria for segmenting

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it

 

Miss Heaton’s group will be having a go at completing a segmenting activity using the digraphs ay and ou.

(playground, clay, crayon, shout, cloud, mountain, sprouts, hay, tray)

Once you have written all of these words can you apply your learning by choosing two or three of them and write a sentence using them in your jotter.

 

Mrs Wray’s group will be completing a segmenting activity using the digraphs ear and air.

(tear, chair, beard, stairs, fear, pair)

 

Once you have written all of these words can you apply your learning by choosing two or three of them and write a sentence using them in your jotter.

 

 

Now for our final piece of learning for today

 

 

In PSHE we are continuing our work on keeping healthy. Today our focus is going to be on eating a balanced diet.

 

It is important that we try to eat a balanced diet to keep us healthy and fit.

When choosing food we eat we should be looking at the food pyramid. This helps us to understand that we need more of some food groups than others in our daily diet. 

 

 

Do you know how many pieces of fruit and vegetables we should eat every day?

Here is a song that will help you remember.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z2pxpv4

 

 

We are going to do a sorting activity now, I want you to look at the blank pyramid and see if you can sort these foods into the correct parts of the food pyramid.

 

Here are the foods for you to have a go at sorting.

 

If you want to take your learning further you might like to use your knowledge of the food pyramid to help your create a meal plan for a day.

What would you have for breakfast?

What about lunch?

What about tea?

What snacks/drinks would you choose?

 

For more information on healthy eating please check the Change 4 life webpage.

https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/food-facts

 

Great work everyone!

That is the end of today’s learning, don’t forget to send pictures of your learning in to a teacher to mark.

Today we are going to be using our facts to write some sentences about humpback whales.

Please watch the input lesson on teams.

 

Remember when we write sentences we need to use all our non-negotiables.

 

 

 

To

 

We might write a simple sentence about humpback whales for example:

Humpback whales live in the ocean.

 

We could also use sentence openers to improve our writing, for example:

Did you know that

It is true that

It is a fact that

You might spot that

 

Let’s take a look at a sentence that we might write:

You might spot that the humpback whale has a baleen plate.

You could take your learning even further by joining two ideas using and. For more information see the link below.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmqtnrd

 

Did you know that the humpback whale is a large mammal and they breathe air through a blowhole?

 

Now it’s your turn to have a go! Don’t forget to email learning to your teacher!

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget our success criteria for blending words

Look carefully

Spot the digraphs

Say the phonemes

Blend it together

 

Miss Heaton's group – we are going to be focussing on blending words with the graphemes ou and ay. Let’s take a look at your learning.

After that can you apply your learning by reading sentences with ou and ay in them?

Mrs Wray's group – you are going to be reading ear and air words containing these digraphs.

Let’s get started with some

Today in literacy we are going to be working from our CGP Literacy books.

 

We are going to focus our learning on compound words.

A compound word is when two words are pushed together to make one word.

Watch this video on BBC Bitesize to help you with this before you begin.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z7s3p4j/articles/z64nnrd

Now have a go at these two activities.

Great work now you are ready to have a go at pages 22 and 23 in your CGP book.

 

Well done! Now let’s move on to

Today in Numeracy we are going to continue looking at subtraction.

 Yesterday you focused on subtraction, but not crossing over 10. To extend that learning we are now looking at crossing 10.

First you will need to watch the video below.

https://vimeo.com/497563367

 

Now you have watched the video have a go at answering these questions in your pack.

 

Excellent! Now let’s have a look at our next learning challenge

Today in Phonics we are going to be continuing our work on segmenting.

Remember to use the success criteria

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it.

Miss Heaton’s groups will be continuing their split digraph work. Look at the pictures in the thought bubbles and have a go at segmenting them.

(mole, time, bone, milkshake, rude, sunrise, theme park, rake)

 

Once you have completed your thought bubbles choose a few pictures and have a go at writing some sentences about them in your jotters.

 

Mrs Wray’s phonics group will be continuing segmenting words using the ow and oi digraphs, remember to use the success criteria.

(foil, crowd, toilet, coil, clown, cow)

Once you have completed your challenge choose a few pictures and have a go at writing some sentences about them in your jotters.

 

Now for our final challenge of the day

This term in Computing we are going to be starting to look at giving instructions to a Bee-Bot.

First we need to understand how to give instructions. When we are giving instructions in Computing we call them algorithms.

Can you have a look at the picture of the Bee-Bot on your sheet and label the buttons?

 

 

Well done! That is all of our learning completed for today.

Keep sending your learning in to a teacher so we can mark it and give you feedback.

Have a lovely weekend!

Today we are going to be using our key words from yesterday to write sentences about Zog’s personality and what he is like on the inside. Let’s take a look at this.

 

Today I am looking for you to begin your sentences in interesting ways.

Here are some ideas you could use.

If is a fact that….

Did you know…?

This character…

 

 

If I look at my key words from yesterday and choose one to put into a sentence, I might write...

Did you know that Zog is a very clumsy dragon?

 

You could then extend your learning even further by using a conjunction such as because.

 

Did you know that Zog is a very clumsy dragon because when he learnt to fly he crashed into a tree?

 

It is important that we remember to use our non-negotiables for writing:

 

 

 
   

 

 

 

Have a go and don’t forget to send a picture of your learning to your teacher.

 

Great now on to our next challenge

 

 

We are going to be using the White Rose again, today focusing on subtraction. In your White Rose books you need to find the page titled

Subtraction – not crossing 10 (counting back).

 

Once you have the right page watch the video below.

 

https://vimeo.com/492198226

 

Once you have watched the video have a go at answering the questions on these pages in your booklet.

 

Great work!

Let’s move onto...

 

Today in phonics we are moving onto segmenting words to write them. When we are segmenting words it is important to follow the success criteria of

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it.

 

Miss Heaton’s group will be having a go at a 'roll and write' using all the split digraphs we have learnt.

o-e, a-e, i-e, e-e and u-e

 

(spade, flute, kite, scone, swede, grapes, plane, bite, skate, smoke, tube, bike)

Once you have completed the roll and write can you apply your learning by writing a sentence for some of the pictures?

 

Mrs Wray’s group will be focusing on segmenting words using the oi and ow digraphs.

(crown, dirt, boil, brown, howl, point, frown, coin)

Once you have completed the roll bubbles can you apply your learning by writing a sentence for some of the pictures?

 

Well done! Now onto our final challenge for today which is...

 

This term in RE we are going to learning about Judaism. First watch this introduction video on Espresso.

 

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/primary_uk/subject/module/video/item339396/grade2/module649715/index.html

 

Now let’s think about Shabbat. Shabbat is the special holy day for Jewish people. Let’s watch this video about getting ready for Shabbat.

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/primary_uk/subject/module/video/item339377/grade2/module649715/index.html

 

During Shabbat Jewish people have special items that they use. Can you remember any of them?

 

 

 

 

 

Do you have any special items that you use to celebrate things at home? It might be a religious item or a special story that you use as a family? Can you write about it in your jotter?

For example I might write:

When it is my daughter’s birthday I always make a special chocolate cake and we use a special teapot and tea cups.

 

That’s the last part of the learning for today!

Let’s begin by looking at

So far in Literacy you have already looked at the physical characteristics of Zog (what he looks like on the outside). Today we are going to be focusing on the personal characteristics of Zog (what he is like on the inside).

Just like you did on Monday we are going to be using some adjective to describe him. An adjective is a word that we can use to describe a noun. If you want to recap what an adjective is please watch the following BBC bitesize video.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/zy2r6yc

 

Again, we are going to write some keywords to describe Zog, we don’t need to write full sentences just one or two words for example:

 

Try to use as much adventurous language as you can to make your writing interesting.

Here is the recording sheet if you would prefer to print it off and label Zog.

 

Great, now on to our second challenge of the day

Today we are going to be using our White Rose booklets again, looking at the Subtraction – Not crossing 10, pages.

Firstly you will need to watch the video below.

https://vimeo.com/492197096

Once you have watched the video have a go at answering the questions in your booklet.

 

Super work, now let’s have a look at our next learning challenge

Today we are going to be focusing on blending again in phonics. Remember to use our success criteria to help you when blending.

Spot the digraph

Say the phonemes

Blend it

Say it.

 

Miss Allen’s group will be playing a race game with a mix of the split digraphs we have been learning.

 

Once you have had a go at your race game, can you apply your learning by having a go at a sentence Roll and Read?

Mrs Ibbotson’s group will be continuing their work blending word using the ow and oi digraphs.

 

Once you have played Snakes and Ladders, have a go at applying your skills with a Roll and Read sentences game.

 

Great work, let’s look what our next challenge is going to be.

In Design and Technology we are going to be learning all about how clothes are made. This learning will be used later on for this terms DT challenge.

 

There are two main ways people make clothes, this can be done by hand, or in a big factory using machinery.

Here is a video showing how clothes are made by hand.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TccBRPuOysQ&safe=active

 

Now let’s see how they are made in a factory using machines.

Watch this video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ctD5jjMeY8&safe=active

 

Lots of our clothes are made from cotton.

Cotton Fibres from the cotton plant are spun into yarn or thread. Cotton plants grow in hot countries and are mainly found in India, Egypt, Africa and the Americas.

 

The countries where cotton comes from India, Egypt, Africa and the Americas, tend to be poorer counties.

That is where Fair Trade comes in.

Do you recognise this logo?

This logo means that the people growing and picking the cotton (or other products) have been paid a fair amount of money.

You might see it on food too!

The Fair Wear logo is found in clothes.

 

If you want to learn more about fair trade watch the video below. You will need an Espresso log in to do this, please check your app message for this.

Great work everyone. Don’t forget to send your learning to Mrs Kitchen or Mrs Kershaw today as Miss Allen is in class teaching all day, thank you.

 

Our first Live Learning session will be happening on Tuesday 19th January.

The session will be happening via Teams. I will begin the session promptly at 9:30, I will go live 5 minutes before hand so you can log on early. I aim for the session to last approximately 15 minutes.

The live session is the input for the Literacy lesson, pupils will then be asked to continue the session independently and send in completed work to mark. The children will need their work from Monday's Literacy lesson, writing key words for the physical characteristics of Zog, as we will be building on this.

Before joining the Teams session, please remind children how to mute and unmute themselves.

Please check you can get on Teams with your child's log in details prior to the session.

The session will be recorded so if you are unable to attend at 9:30 you will be able to access the session at a later time.

IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE RECORDED PLEASE TURN YOUR CAMERA OFF.

Can you find the odd one out? Which did you choose? Can you explain your reasoning using scientific language?

For example you might say that the cat is the odd one out because the bat and the owl have wings. You might say that the owl is the odd one out because the bat and the cat have fur. How many ways can you sort them?

 

Get more barn owl facts from The Barn Owl Trust and more information on the lesser long-eared bat from the Australian Museum. There's plenty of cat facts for children here.

To

Well done now for our second challenge – phonics!

 

Don’t forget our success criteria for spelling words

· Say it

· Count it

· Write it

· Blend it

· Check it!

Miss Heaton’s group – we are going to be focussing on the split digraphs a-e and e-e. Let’s take a look at your learning.

(words are rake, kate, complete, flake, milkshake and concrete)

Can you apply your learning by choosing a picture and putting the word into a sentence? For example

I had a vanilla milkshake.

 

Mrs Wray's group – you are going to be spelling words containing the digraphs or and ur.

G

Grea

(words are burnt, cork, storm, church, corn and surf)

Can you apply your learning by choosing a picture and putting the word into a sentence? For example

The toast was burnt.

 

 

Today our focus is on number bonds to 20. Yesterday using the White Rose booklet you looked at finding and making number bonds to 20. Today we would like you to consolidate your learning by completing pages 16 and 17 in your CGP Maths Activity book.

 

 

Remember to use your knowledge of your number bonds to 10 to help you answer these questions. 20 is ten more than 10 so your number bonds will be 10 more too.

For example I know that 3+7=10, therefore I know that 13+7=20 and 3+17=20.

 

Don't forget to send a picture of the completed work in when you have finished.

 

Now onto our final task

In art this term we are thinking about using different techniques for sculpting materials. In school we use clay but for this activity you could use clay, play dough, plasticine or you could make your own play dough by following the link below.

https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/playdough-recipe

We will be using our hands to shape the dough and add detail. Mrs Kershaw will give you some more information in these videos.

Again we will be using our White Rose maths pack.

We will be working on the section called “Find & make number bonds”.

 

Before you begin answering the questions you will need to watch the video below.

https://vimeo.com/490882337

 

Half way through the video you will be asked to pause and answer questions 1 and 2.

Then play the video again until it asks you to pause and answer question 3.

After play the rest of the video and then answer question 4.

Super work everyone.

Don’t forget if you want to continue your learning on number bonds you can play Hit the Button.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Choose the green button for number bonds. How many can you get right?

 

Great work everyone!

Now our second piece of learning is

 

So far this week you have hear the story of The Smartest Giant in Town.

You have ordered the pictures, verbalised sentences about each picture and had a go at writing some sentence strips.

 

Today is the last day on The Smartest Giant in Town, so it is the day where we are going to write up our final piece.

 

Today I would like you to use your ideas from yesterday and turn them into one piece of writing. So the first thing you need to do is re-read your sentences from yesterday.

Once you have read what you have written you are now going to make sure your sentences are in the right order.

What was the first thing that happened to George the Giant?

Once you have your sentences in order from yesterday it is time to have a go at writing your recount.

Remember you are doing it from George’s point of view, you are pretending to be him. You will need to use the tricky word ‘I’.

To take your learning further I would like to see you using time connectives.

First

Next

Then

After that

Later that day

Finally

 

These make your writing flow better.

 

When writing up your recount I would like you to use your line guide in your jotter to make your writing neat. Remember where the letters sit on the lines, I have put a picture of the line guide below for you to check where your letters should sit correctly.

 

 

Remember to plan your sentences before writing.

Most important of all is to remember to use your non-negotiables.

 

Read your sentences back to check they make sense.

 

Super now we have finished our writing, let’s see what is next. 

Today we are going to be focusing on our segmenting skills.

When we are segmenting it is important we follow the success criteria

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it

 

The phase 3 phonics group are going to be segmenting words that contain the ur and or digraphs.

(turn, horn, thorn, hurt, turnip, fork, storm, surf, curl, corn, burn, torch)

 

Once you have completed your roll and write have a go at writing the sentence “Can you see my fork?” Get your adult to say the sentence a few times so it is in your head then have a go at writing it down.

 

Phase 5  phonics group are going to be working on segmenting words using the split digraphs a-e and e-e.

(game, swede, snake, athlete, Pete, cake)

 

Once you have completed the spellings can you apply your learning by choosing a couple of pictures and writing a sentence about them in your jotters?

 

Well done!

Now for our final piece of learning

 

 

This term in PSHE we are learning all about healthy eating.

 

In this week’s lesson we are going to continue looking at healthy food.

Have a look at the pictures below and see if you can answer the questions.

 

Can you think of 3 foods you like and think of some words to describe them?

 

Have a think about the foods you like and the foods you don’t like. Can you have a go at filling in the table below?

Maybe you are feeling brave and would like to try a new food.

What foods would you like to try?

You might even like to do a taste test challenge and see which foods you like.

Now for your final challenge in PSHE, I would like you to design a healthy meal.

Think about the healthy eating plate. We use this to make sure it is a balanced meal.

What meal will you design?

 

Excellent!

Now that is the end of today’s home learning.

Don’t forget to send me pictures of you home learning, I really look forward to seeing them.

Remember we always need to include our non-negotiables in our writing.

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget to take a picture of your learning and email it to your teacher.

 

Well done, now let’s move on to our second challenge

When doing phonics it is really important that we use the success criteria for blending words

Look carefully

Spot the digraphs

Say the phonemes

Blend it together

Miss Heaton’s group are going to be focussing on the split digraphs a-e and e-e. We blend them in the same way as the ones we learnt about last week.

Once you have had a go at the race game, can you apply your phonics skills by completing the roll and read below? Remember to look for those split digraphs.

 

Mrs Wray’s group – you are going to be reading words containing the digraphs or and ur. You have a connect 4 game to play.

Once you have played connect 4, can you apply your blending skills by having a go at the roll and read sentences? Don’t forget to spot the digraphs.

Super phonics everyone!

Now for our next challenge of today

 

Today in Numeracy we are looking at the pages in your booklet called “Adding ones using number bonds”

Before you begin watch the video below which will explain what to do.

When you watch the video, it will pause half way through and ask you to complete questions 1 and 2 on your sheets.

 

Then continue the video and when it end have a go at questions 3 and 4 on your sheets.

 

https://vimeo.com/490879867

 

Then there is a second video that will help you with the rest of your questions.

Watch the video by following the link.

https://vimeo.com/490880277

Now have a go at question 5 and 6 on your sheet.

 

 

Now time for our final piece of learning today

 

In school when doing music we have been learning about the pulse or beat. We have practiced doing actions to songs while counting 1, 2, 3, 4.

 

Today for music I have found some nice games where you can explore different parts of a song.

 

If you click the link below it will take you to the website.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/games/embed/bring-the-noise?exitGameUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fbbc.co.uk%2Fteach%2Fbring-the-noise%2Feyfs-ks1-music-play-it-bring-the-noise%2Fz4sq92p

I would like you to start off with Listen and layer (the blue box).

Once you have clicked play you will be able to choose from a selection of songs. Use the arrows to navigate then once you have chosen a song press play.

 

This will take you to the listening area where you can see the different layers that make the songs.

You can click on a layer to take it away and listen to how it changes the song. You can take away all of the layers and add them back to see how the song sounds.

 

Once you have had a listen to the different sounds in the songs, go back to the home page by pressing the red back arrow at the top left of the page.

This will bring you back to the home screen, here I would like you to have a look at the Feel the beat (purple) section.

Choose a song to look at.

Now you can use a percussion instrument if you have one or you can use your body as percussion for example stamping your feet or tapping your knees.

Look at the heart that moves across your screen when it gets to the circle on the left of the screen can you tap your knees?

This will help you learn how to keep the beat.

How many different actions can you think of to keep the beat?

Well done everyone! That is Wednesday’s home learning challenges complete, give yourselves a big pat on the back.

Don’t forget to send your learning in so we can see what you have been doing.

Check back tomorrow.

Remember when we are doing speech bubbles we need to use first person as it is what George is saying so we need to use the word ‘I’.

 

Could you expand your sentences by adding because or and like I have done in the example?

 

Now it’s your turn to have a go. Look at the pictures and think about what George might be saying in each one. Don’t forget to use ‘I’ when writing these as you are pretending to be George.

Record your ideas in your jotters.

Don’t forget to take a picture of your learning and email it to your teacher.

This week we are going to start using White Rose Maths for our numeracy learning. The first day is an activity day focusing on adding by counting on up to 20. You will find the video for the activity here:

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/week-2-number-addition-and-subtraction-within-20/

 

 

Now for our final challenge for today...

 

 

 

 

Last week we learnt all about our bodies. Today I would like you think about senses. Can you name the senses?

 

Touch

Sight

Smell

Hearing

Taste

 

Can you watch this BBC bitesize video about the senses?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z9yycdm/articles/zxy987h

 

 

 

Can you complete the activities?

 

 

 

 

     If you want to take your learning further you could investigate this question at home?

Does your sense of smell affect your sense of taste?

 

 

You can test this by tasting a variety of foods whilst pinching your nose.

Now taste the foods again, do they taste any different?

Can you write down what you found out in your jotter?

 

 

Friday

Friday morning message.mp4

Still image for this video

Good Morning everyone!

Ae you ready for Friday’s home learning challenge?

Let’s have a look. Today we will be focusing on…

Numeracy

Literacy

Phonics

 

Let’s get started with some…

 

Today we are going to be measuring length and height using non-standard units of measure.

This is when we measure things using objects rather than a ruler or a tape measure.

For instance I could measure how long a pencil is using paper clips.

I would then say the pencil is 5 paper clips long.

 

It is important when using non-standard units of measure that we measure using the same size objects.

I could not use different sized toy cars to measure something.

 

When we measure length we are talking about how long something is. For this we use the vocabulary of long, longer, longest, short, shorter and shortest.

 

When we measure height we are talking about how tall something is. For this we use the vocabulary of tall, taller, tallest, short, shorter, and shortest.

 

Let’s have a go.

For your first challenge can you have a look around your house and find

4 things that are taller than you

 and

 4 things that are shorter than you.

You can either write these down in your jotters or take a picture.

Here is are some things that I found around the classroom.

The door is taller than I am.

 

The water tray is shorter than I am.

 

For your second challenge I would like you to have a go at measuring things around your home using non-standard units of measure.

This could be some Lego blocks that are the same size, your hands, straws, DVD cases, pieces of pasta, tins of food etc.

For example

The table is 17 pieces of Lego in length.

 

The chair is 10 pieces of Lego in height.

 

What can you find around your house to measure?

Can you record it on a table like this one?

 

You might need to draw two tables one for length and one for height.

Object

Length

Table

 

Book

 

Sofa

 

17 Lego bricks

 

8 Lego bricks

 

32 Lego bricks

 

Object

Height

Door

 

Bed

 

TV

24 hands

 

5 hands

 

7 hands

 

 

Great work everyone!

Now let’s have a look at our next challenge for today

 

In Literacy today we are going to be learning

Have a look at these words, what do you notice?

dog

fog

log

jog

clog

 

That’s right they rhyme.

The words above all end in the same letters, that’s what makes them rhyme. But not all rhyming words end in the same letters.

feet

seat

meet

heat

The above words have an eet or eat, they both make the same sound but are spelt differently. They still rhyme even though the spelling is different.

 

BBC Bitesize have made a short lesson explaining this, have a look

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvrbsk7

 

Now have a go at Activity 1 and see if you can match up the rhyming words.

Super work!

Now see if you can make your own rhyming string by completing Activity 2.

 

If you want to you can have a go at Activity 3.

 

Super rhyming work!

 

I would now like you to have a go at completing pages 24 and 25 in your Literacy books.

 

Well done everyone!

Are you ready for our final challenge of today?

Let’s get ready for…

 

Today in phonics we will be practicing out segmenting skills to write the words.

When segmenting it is important to

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it

P5 segmenting video.mp4

Still image for this video

Miss Heaton's group are going to be writing words using split digraphs.

(stone, slide, time, rose, kite, mule, rope, tube)

 

Can you take your learning further by choosing one or more of these pictures and write some sentences using the word in your jotters?

 

Mrs Wray’s group are going to be writing words using the digraphs /oo/ and /ar/.

Remember the /oo/ digraph can make a long sound like in pool or a short sound like in book.

(park, moon, wool, card, zoo, bark, roof, wood)

 

Great work, now can you apply your learning by writing a sentence for this picture using the /ar/ digraph.

 

Super work everyone!

That’s all of today’s learning completed.

Don’t forget to send Mrs Kitchen pictures of all the learning you have done at home as Mrs Kershaw is not working and Miss Allen is in class teaching.

Thursday

Good morning everyone!

 

Today our learning will be

Literacy

Numeracy

Phonics

 

Our first learning challenge of the day is…

Today we are going to be focusing on sentences. We are going to be learning about using ‘and’ to join two ideas together.

 

When we write a sentence we always use a capital letter at the start and punctuation at the end (usually a full stop).

We also often use joining words when writing sentences. Joining words are also known as conjunctions.

Watch this short video to find out more about joining words.

 

 

BBC Bitesize have created a lovely video to explain the use of the conjunction ‘and’. Let’s take a look at this video clip to find out more information.

 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmqtnrd

 

Now I would like you to complete pages 8 & 9 of your Literacy Activity Book.

 

 

 

Well done for completing the first piece of learning for the day. Let’s now move on to our next piece of learning which is…

 

Today in numeracy we are going to be measuring mass using non-standard units of measure.

Can you create and make your own balancing scales using things that you have around your home?

 

Take a look at the pictures below and a video clip to give you some ideas of how balancing scales can be made.

 

 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tK8mSIEtTUw

 

 

You can use the balancing scales in different ways:

 

Try directly comparing 2 objects; 1 object in each part of the balance to determine which is the heaviest and lightest.

Numeracy 4.mp4

Still image for this video

or

 

Put 1 object in 1 side of the balance and use a non-standard unit of measure in the other side to see how many it takes to balance the scales.

Non-standard units could be; grapes, beads, pennies, building blocks, counters etc.

Numeracy Video 5.mp4

Still image for this video

How many cubes did the pen weigh?

Now it is your turn to choose a non-standard unit of measure and find the weight of your objects using your balancing scales. Good luck!

 

Here is an additional video to help you understand how to watch before you get started.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkayMXH5QlU&safe=active

 

 

 

** Note for the grown-ups!**

 

When choosing non-standard units of measure make sure that you choose a uniform size eg building blocks all the same size (not huge ones and tiny ones combined).

The vocabulary we are wanting to hear the children using today is as follows:

 

heavy, light, heavier than, lighter than

 

Here are some questions that you could ask your child in today’s numeracy learning:

 

Hold two objects, which is heavier/lighter? How do you know? How can we prove this?

 Are larger objects always heavier than smaller objects?

If the balance scale is down, what does that tell us?

 If the balance scale is up, what does that tell us?

If the balance is level, what does that tell us?

Which of these objects is heavier? How do you know?

 

 

Are you ready for you final challenge? Let’s get started on…

 

Mrs Wray’s Group:

Today you are going to be spelling words with the digraphs /oo/ and /ar/.

Watch this video before you get started.
