This week in Literacy we are going to be focusing on the story of the Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson. If you are unfamiliar with the book you can find the animated version here:

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000cslw/the-snail-and-the-whale

 

 

This week we will be doing some non-fiction writing and writing some facts about the Humpback Whale.

 

Watch the following video all about Humpback Whales.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBGq85Q2198&safe=active

 

Now can you learn the facts below? See how many you can remember? Can you tell another person all about the Humpback whale?

 

 

 

Well done now for our second challenge...

 

 

 

 

To

 

Don’t forget our success criteria for blending words...

 

Spot the digraphs

Say the phonemes

Blend it together

 

Mrs Kershaw’s group – we are going to be focusing on blending words with the graphemes ou and ay. Let’s take a look at your learning.

 

Please join the phase 5 phonics group for a live lesson at 10am.

 

 
   

 

 

 

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

 

Please join the phase 3 phonics group for a live lesson at 2pm.

 

 

 

 

Today we will focus on subtraction by crossing 10.

This will be our learning for the next two days.

It is in two parts – today watch the following video and complete the following pages in your workbook.

Today our learning is going to be...

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

ICT

 

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 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.

 

Mrs Kitchen’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 Taylor’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?

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 is

 

 

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.

 

 

Again 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.

 

Mrs Kitchen’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 Taylor’s group will be focusing on a 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

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 special teapot and tea cups.

 

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

 

Wednesday

20.01.21

Hello everyone! Are you ready for today’s home learning? Today we are going to be looking at

Literacy

Numeracy

Phonics

DT

 

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.

 

Mrs Kitchen’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 Taylor'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 term's 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 to log on using the user name and password you received in your app message.

This week we are going to be focusing on the story of Zog by Julia Donaldson.

 

If you have the story at home you could read it or alternatively you can access the animated version on BBC iPlayer by clicking the link below:

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0bwdw8y/zog

 

 

We are going to be thinking about Zog’s physical characteristics. This means we are going to be thinking about what Zog looks like. We are going to use some adjectives to describe him. An adjective is a word that we can use to describe a noun. Please watch the following BBC bitesize video to find out more.

Today we will be doing an activity – please use the following video to guide you.

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/spring-week-3/

 

This week we are going to move on to learning about animals. How many different types of animals can you name? What do they all have in common?

Log in to espresso using your username and password from the app message and watch the following video.

 

https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/primary_uk/subject/module/video/item1155229/grade1/module1149557/index.html

 

 

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.

 

That’s all our learning for today!

Don’t forget to send pictures of your learning to your class teacher!!

Today we are going to be revisiting our learning all about verbs.

A verb is something that someone or something is, has or does.

Let’s recap this BBC bitesize video to find out more! You may have seen this video before but let’s refresh our memories.

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

 

Well done, there are lots of verbs all around us, can you think of any? Try to think about all the things you have done today, how many verbs can you think of?

Can you help me find the verbs in these sentences?

I brushed my hair.

I ate my lunch.

The sun was shining.

Finally can you complete this verb challenge? Can you underline or write down the verbs in each sentence?

 

 

 

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

 

 

To

Well done now for our second challenge which is...

 

 

Don’t forget our success criteria for spelling words

 

· Say it

· Count it

· Write it

· Blend it

· Check it!

 

Mrs Kershaw’s group – we are going to be focusing 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 Taylor’s group – you are going to be spelling words containing the digraphs or and ur.

 

 

rea

(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 for our final challenge

 

 

 

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 video.

Good morning everyone!

Are you ready for today’s home learning?

Let’s have a look and see what we will be doing.

Numeracy

Literacy

Phonics

PSHE

 

Let’s get started with our

 

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 heard the story of The Smartest Giant in Town.

 

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

 

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 at the beginning of your sentences.

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.

 

 

 

Most important of all is...

Remember to use your non-negotiables.

 

 

Read your sentences back to check that 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

 

Mrs Taylor's 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.

 

 

Mrs Kitchen’s 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 writing a sentence for some of the pictures? Record your sentences in your jotter.

 

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 we create 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 your home learning, I really look forward to seeing them.

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

Mrs Kershaw’s group (phase 5) 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 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.

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.

The BBC have started broadcasting primary educational programmes on CBBC. Please see the schedule below.

 

 

Today our learning is going to be

Literacy

phonics

Numeracy

Geography

Today we are going to continue our learning about The Smartest Giant in Town by Julia Donaldson.

If you have the book at home, read it with your grown up. If not please follow the link to the Youtube video to hear the story.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfiPrA8E3qE&safe=active

 

Today we are going to be writing speech bubbles for what George the giant could be saying.

You will need to use the pictures below, can you remember which order the pictures go in?

 

 

 

Great, now let’s have a look at the first picture.

What could George be saying here?

Literacy Input personal pronoun I

Still image for this video

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.

 

 

 

Well done now for our second challenge – phonics!

 

Don’t forget our success criteria for blending words

Look carefully

Spot the digraphs

Say the phonemes

Blend it together

Mrs Kershaw’s group – we 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. If you are unsure about split digraphs please check the videos from last Wednesday. 

 

 

Mrs Taylor’s group – you are going to be reading words containing the digraphs or and ur.

 

Great work! Let’s have a look at our next piece of learning.

Now for our final challenge for today – Science!

 

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 morning message.mp4

Friday

 

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.

 

 

 

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

 

Mrs Kitchen's group are going to be writing words using split digraphs.

 

P5 segmenting video.mp4

Still image for this video

 

 

 

(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 Taylor’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.

p3 segmenting video.mp4

Still image for this video

 

(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.

Please send your learning to Mrs Kitchen as Miss Allen is also teaching tomorrow.

Have a lovely weekend.

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.

Click on the link below to watch.

 

 

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 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 Taylor’s Group:

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

Watch this video before you get started.

Phonics phase 3 video.mp4

Good Morning everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. Today your grown up will be collecting your pack from school so some of today’s learning will be in your pack. You also have a sheet in your pack with lots of extra learning to choose from once you have done the learning from the website. Try and choose one activity to do per day. It looks like this…

 

 

 

 

 

Today our learning will be

Phonics

Numeracy

Literacy

 

 

Today we are going to be blending split digraph words. It is really important that you watch all three videos below before starting the learning. 

Remember to use the success criteria for reading words:

Spot the digraph/trigraph.

Blend the phonemes.

Say the word out loud.

 

 

Mrs Kitchen’s group:

 

 

 

Can you apply your blending skills by reading these sentences?

Can you apply your blending skills by reading these sentences?

 

Let's have a look at the second challenge for today

 

Today in Numeracy we are going to be looking at 

Money

 

We are just going to be looking at the value of coins.

Do you know the value of the different coins in the picture above?

 

Have a look at the BBC Bitesize website (link below) for more input on the value of the different coins.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zp7c3j6

 

Once you know the value of the coins, have a go at the Bitesize Activity 2 to see if you can order the coins from least value to most.

 

Now have a go at pages 20 and 21 in your Numeracy books.

 

 

If you want to take your learning further have a go at Activity 3 on the BBC Bitesize page.

 

That's challenge 2 of 3 done.

Excellent work everyone!

Don't forget to send me a picture of the work you have completed.

 

 

 

Today we are going to be focusing on question marks and exclamation marks.

 

Question marks and exclamation marks are a type of punctuation.

 

When we are writing a question down, we need to punctuate it with a question mark not a full stop.

Here are some examples.

 

Do you like cake?

Is it raining?

Where is my pen?

 

BBC bitesize have done a video showing this.

Click the link to access it. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zmygsk7/articles/z68yy9q

 

 

 

Exclamation marks are used when a person is excited, surprised or angry about something. Here are some examples.

 

I got a new puppy!

Wow! look at that amazing robot!

That is really spooky!

 

BBC bitesize have done a video showing this.

Our first piece of learning is going to be 

 

Yesterday in Literacy we learnt some interesting facts about Julia Donaldson.

Can you remember any of them?

 

Refresh your mind by having a look at the sheet below, see which facts you can remember.

Can you remember the actions we used to help us?

 

Have a go at using the actions to tell someone at home the 5 facts we have learnt.

 

 

Once you have practiced the facts using the actions we have learnt, can you have a go at writing some of the facts in your jotters?

 

Remember to use your line guide for all of your writing and the non negotiables; capital letters at the start of your sentences and for proper nouns (names), finger spaces and full stops.

Don't forget to send me a picture of your learning. 

 

If you want to learn more about Julia Donaldson you can watch a video all about her and how she got all of her wonderful ideas for her books.

Our first challenge for today is...

 

 

Today in our numeracy we are going to be learning about shape.

 

Watch this BBC Bitesize introduction to shape to help you remember the learning that we have already done.

 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p08cvr39/bitesize-57-year-olds-week-5-6-teacher-talks-shapes

 

Let’s go on a shape hunt!

Can you hunt around your home to find any objects that are the shapes we learnt about in the video clip?

Take photos of any of these shapes that you can find.

 

Here are picture representations of the 2D and 3D shapes to help as a reminder for your shape hunt.

 

Now complete pages 32 &33 in your Maths Activity Jotter.

 

 

Well done. You have completed the first challenge of the day!

 

Right, the next challenge is…

 

 

Today is our last day of blending before we move on to our segmenting skills.

Thank you for the learning sent in yesterday!

I had some lovely evidence of learning and a number of video clips of children's reading which put a massive smile on my face.

You are all trying so hard and I am so very proud of you.

 

Today is another day of challenges so let’s find out what we will be doing.

 

Today we will be focusing on:

 

Literacy

Phonics

Numeracy

 

The first learning challenge for today is…

 

Today we will be focusing on capital letters and full stops.

 

Watch this little video clip before you start this piece of work. It will help you to think about when you need to use a capital letter and a full stop in your sentence.

 

 

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

 

When completing sentences, remember it is important that your capital letter stands taller compared to the other letters. All capital letters must touch the dotty line on your line guide.

 

I have added this picture again to remind you.

 

 

In your activity books you do not have a line guide but you must still make sure that the capital letters stand taller.

 

Now complete pages 10 & 11 in your Literacy Activity Pack.

 

 

I can’t wait to see your learning so remember to send me some pictures.

 

Well done you have completed the first learning challenge.

The next learning challenge is…

 

Today we are revisiting the digraphs that we learnt yesterday. Can you tell your grown up the phonemes that these graphemes make?

 

Mrs Taylor:    igh     oa

 

Mrs Kitchen:     ie    oe    ee

 

Today we are continuing with our blending skills. Remember to use the success criteria when blending each word:

Spot the digraph/trigraph.

Blend the phonemes.

Say the word out loud.

 

Today we are going to be playing connect 4.

 

Mrs Taylor’s challenge:

 

Mrs Kitchen’s challenge:

 

 

Well done. That is your second challenge of the day completed.

Let’s get started on your final challenge for today which is…

 

 

Today we are going to be revisiting our number bonds to 10.

These are the pairs of numbers that when added together make a total of 10.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some children are at the stage where they are able to recall some of the facts but may still need to work out odd ones.

 I have created a video to remind the children of one of the ways they can work out any unknown number bonds to 10.

Now have a go at completing pages 6&7 in your Literacy Activity Book.

 

Use your jotter to write down any of the sentences that you have re-ordered.

I am looking forward to seeing some of your learning.

 

Well done you have completed your first challenge. Our second learning challenge is going to be...

 

Today we are continuing with our segmenting skills for spelling.

 

The digraphs we are using are the same so Mrs Taylor’s group, you will be spelling words with ai and ee.

Mrs Kitchen’s group, you will be spelling words with ue and ie.

 

Take a look at the challenge below. Look at the pictures below and say the word that the pictures represent.

Remember to use the success criteria for spelling:

Say it

Thursday

 

Welcome to our fourth day of home learning.

You are all doing amazingly so far and I just want you all to know that I am so proud of you all! (Grown-ups included)

 

Today’s main challenges will be:

Numeracy

Phonics

Design and Technology

 

Let’s get started with our first challenge of the day which is…

 

 

Today we are focusing on addition skills.

In our classroom learning we have focused on the following strategies for addition:

Part part whole model

 

 

Number line strategy

3 +11 =

 

The children know that addition can be done in any order and that it is a faster strategy to circle the largest number first and jump on the smaller amount.

 

 

Use of jottings

 

Jottings are the picture representations that they have drawn to represent their working out. We normally use simple jottings like circles or dots.

 

When representing a teen number we would use a line to represent the 10 and dots to represent how many more. Remember when counting the jottings to count on from 10 as that stick is worth 10.

 

 

I have uploaded a video clip to demonstrate how to use the ‘part part whole’ strategy as this may be the one that you are the least familiar with.

Please let me know if you want any further guidance on any of these strategies.

part part whole.mp4

Still image for this video

 

The children are familiar with them all and they are able to choose and use a strategy when adding two numbers together.

 

Now you are ready to complete pages 12 & 13 in your Maths Activity Book.

 

Here are some more addition number sentences for you to have a go at completing.

Choose and use a strategy to complete these addition number sentences.

Can you write the completed number sentences in your jotters?

 

12 + 4 =

3 + 7 =

15 + 3 =

17 + 1 =

4 + 13 =

16 + 2 =

 

 

Well done! That is our first piece of learning completed.

I can’t wait to see some of your learning!

 

Our next learning challenge is…

 

 

For the last two days of the week we are still working on the same digraphs but we are now going to be spelling words. This is where we use our segmenting skills. To spell words correctly we need to:

Say it

Count it

Write it

Blend it

Check it

Watch this video to give you more information.

Mrs Taylor’s Segmenting Challenge:

(feet, rain, sheep, chain, cheek, paint)

 

Mrs Kitchen’s Segmenting Challenge:

(Bluebell, glue, tie, magpie, fries, clue)

 

Record your phonic spellings in your jotter.

 

Fantastic! That is second piece of learning completed.

 

Now onto our final challenge for today…

 

Over the next few days I would like you to design a Christmas decoration.

Think about these questions before you start your design..

 

What shape is it going to be?

What will it be made out of?

How you will join the pieces together?

What will you use to decorate it?

 

Here are some ideas of decorations to get you started with some ideas.

 

 

Draw and label your design in your learning jotter.

Here is a design that I have had a go at.

 

 

 

 

I can’t wait to see your designs!

 

Over the weekend you might want to have a go at making your Christmas decoration.

I’m really looking forward to seeing your creations once they are finished.

Tuesday

 

Welcome back to our second day of learning.

Our main learning for today will be:

 

Numeracy

Phonics

History/Literacy

 

Let's start with our first learning  challenge which is...

 

 

 

Today we are going to be focusing on showing accuracy when counting objects to 20.

For this learning you will need any small objects that you can count.

This can be anything, so before we start; go and hunt around the house for something that you can use.

You can play 2 types of counting games.

 

 

Game 1 – Ask your grown up to choose a number to 20 and count out that exact amount.

Game 2 – Your grown up gives you a set amount of objects and you count how many there are and point to the correct number.

 

I have attached 2 videos to support your child with their counting challenges.

 

 

Touch counting example.mp4

If you have achieved the first challenge, watch this video and then move onto the second challenge

Challenge 2 counting.mp4

Still image for this video

Here are some numbers that I have represented with Lego. Can you work out which numbers I am representing? Remember not to start counting from 1 each time because we know that is 1 stick of 10.

 

         

 

    

 

Once you have completed your practical challenge, you can move on to completing pages 4 & 5 in you Maths Activity Book.

Well done that is our first piece of learning completed.

Remember I love seeing what you are getting up to so please upload any photos of you counting or take a photo of your learning for me to see.

 

 

Our next challenge is…

 

 

We are carrying on with the same digraphs as yesterday.

 

Mrs Taylor’s phonics challenge group are blending words with:

 

ai           ee

 

Mrs Kitchen’s group are blending words with:

 

ie       ue

 

Today’s learning in school would have been a snakes and ladders game. How many of the words on the game can you blend? Remember:

Spot the digraph

Blend the phonemes

Say the word out loud!

 

Mrs Taylor’s blending challenge:

 

 

Mrs Kitchen’s blending challenge:

 

 

 

Well done that is our second piece of learning completed.

 

Our final challenge for today is…

 

 

I want you to write me 4 sentences.

I would like each sentence to tell me a fact about Grace Darling.

Write your facts in you jotter. Remember to put the line guide behind your page to help you form your letters correctly.

 

I have attached a clip of a dramatised recount of what happened to Grace Darling.

This might support you with generating fact ideas.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/true-stories-grace-darling/z4y7pg8

 

Your facts might include:

 

When she was born

Where she lived

What she did that was so special

What type of a person she was

 

Remember that writing sentences is still literacy.

 

 

All sentences need:

A capital letter for the start of a sentence or for a specific name.

A full stop at the end of a sentence.

Clear spaces between each word.

Neat handwriting.

 

Here is a a picture showing you how your letters should look on your line guide.

 

 

I can’t wait to read your facts so please send me your learning to read.

 

Happy learning everyone.

I will see you again tomorrow.

A message for Class 3!

WIN_20201127_15_49_47_Pro.mp4

Still image for this video

This half term we are learning about the seaside. We have started investigating some seaside locations in the United Kingdom.

 

 

This week in our literacy we have been writing poems.

 

At the beginning of the week we listened to sound clips of the seaside and talked about the things we could hear.

We then watched a video clip and talked about the things that we could see.

 

We used our ideas to make poems about the seaside.

Scroll down and read some of our learning.

 

      

 

We choose the vocabulary carefully so that you could imagine being at the seaside.

 

   

 

       

 

 

 

 

In our numeracy we have been learning about addition!

 

Take a look at our learning journey...

 

We started by being introduced the vocabulary 'whole' and 'part'.

Before we started our learning a lot of us didn't realise that a 'whole' was different to a 'hole'. 

 

In our learning we described 'whole' as when you have all of something. (When none of the parts are missing)

'Not whole' was described as when you have not got all of something (when parts of it have been taken away)

 

We sorted pictures according to if it was 'whole' or 'not whole'.

 

 

Do you agree with the way these pictures have been sorted? Can you explain your ideas?

This was important learning for us to do.  

This learning meant that we all had the same understanding of the language we would be using later in our addition learning.

 

 

We then looked at a whole object.

 

 

 

Mrs Akhtar used bananas to show us how a whole object could be split into parts.

She used a different banana each time and split  each of the bananas into different parts.

Sometimes she split the banana  into more than 2 parts!

 

 

 

We were amazed that even though the banana was in parts; you could push it back together to see the whole banana again!

 

Mrs Akhtar asked us questions like:

 

How many parts has the banana been split into?

Are they equal parts?

Which is the largest/smallest part?

What other ways could we split the banana?

Can the banana only be split into 2 parts?

 

Introduction to the 'Part Part Whole Model'

 

In our learning we have been using this model a lot!

We investigated the model carefully and looked at it from different angles. We had to be sure that we could recognise the 'parts' section of the model and the 'whole' section of the model whatever way up it was shown.

 

Mrs Kitchen tried to catch us out but we could spot the parts!

 

 

Where are the parts and where is the whole in these models?

 

We used practical equipment and real part part whole models to investigate how they worked. 

Take a look at us exploring the models:

 

       

  

       

 

We then learnt how the part part whole models could help us to complete addition challenges.

 

 

Some of the wholes in this piece of learning need checking.

Can you work out the total of the 2 parts?

 

Introduction to using jottings for addition!

 

We then learnt how to draw pictorial representations of our equipment. We call these pictures 'jottings'.

Take a look at some of our jottings:

 

 

Developing a deeper understanding of 

addition number sentences!

 

We started by representing the parts and adding them together to find the whole amount. 

We used practical equipment to represent the numerals in our number sentences.

 

        

 

Mrs Kitchen asked us questions like:

Which number(s) represent a part?

Which number represents the whole?

Is the equals sign always at the end of a number sentence?

 

(A lot of the children were convinced that the equals sign always came at the end of a number sentence).


We then investigated what would happen if we started the number sentence with the 'whole' rather than the 'parts'. 

 

We quickly  realised that it meant the exact same thing but was just represented in a different way.

 

         

 

Mrs Kitchen then introduced us to addition Fact families to help us apply our new learning.

 

4 + 3 = 7

3 + 4 = 7

7 = 3 + 4

7 = 4 + 3

        

 

 

This term we have been learning about joining techniques in our Design and Technology learning.

 

Our aim by the end of this term is to design and create our own boat using box modelling materials.

Before we could even begin to do this we needed a tinker session first. 

Tinker sessions give us time to investigate and 'tinker' with techniques to decide what is effective and not effective.

 

Our tinker session was all about 'joining techniques'.

We investigated which joining techniques would be the best to use when we make our boats.

Take a look at our investigations and what we found out...

 

        

 

        

 

 

 

In our artwork this half term we have been

working with pencil.

 

We have learnt a variety of techniques to add tone and texture to a piece of art work.

 

We were first introduced to our art pencils. We investigated how they are different.

We were then taught our first technique...

This was shading.

We used our art pencils to change the shade from light to dark.

 

      

 

      

 

We then learnt the technique of hatching and cross hatching.

We learnt that the closer together the lines and the more we crossed over the lines;

the darker the area went.

 

We also learnt the technique of stippling.

This is where dots are used to create tone.

The closer together the dots are the darker the area looks.

 

Applying our new art skills!

We then had a go at creating shadows on an image of an apple by applying the techniques

that we had been investigating.

 

Look at some of our creations!

      

 

      

In numeracy we have been learning our number bonds to 10.

 

Number bonds are pairs of numbers that make up a given number.

The number we have been focusing on is 10; but it is important to learn our number bonds for all numbers up to 10 eg number bonds to 5, number bonds to 7 etc..

 

Here are some examples of number bonds to 10.

 

 

The children have been playing a game called 'Hit the Button' from a site called Top Marks. This game encourages the fast recall of the pairs of numbers that make 10. 

 

 

The children absolutely love it and they have requested that I put the link on the class page so that they can play it at home.

 

Click on the link below to play the game:

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

 

Our current class top score is 23.

Let's see if anyone can top that score over the half term break.

Good luck everyone!

 

 

 

How have we finished Week 4 of learning already?

 

We have been super busy this week and we are excited to share with you what we

have been learning.

 

We have spent a lot of time this week learning about our local area.

We started by using Google Maps to look at a satellite view of our local area.

 

 

We talked about the symbols on the photo and what they meant.

We spotted symbols for; bus stops, a post office and schools.

 

Once we were confident using the satellite photo, Mrs Kitchen then clicked a button on Google Maps

to turn the satellite photo into a map.

 

It looked like this:

 

 

By looking at both representations of the local area at the same time we could see what the map was showing us. Take a look at some photographs of us investigating the maps.

 

         

 

         

 

Once we were confident using a map, we had an adventure out of school and went on a walk

around our local area. 

 

 

Whilst we were walking we spent a lot of time looking at different buildings and different jobs

in our local area. Here are some of the jobs we noticed:

 

         

 

        

 

The children have been set two home learning challenges to keep this learning on our local area going:

 

To explore Google Maps with an adult to see the satellite photo/map of their street.

To keep looking around their local area to see if they can spot any more types of jobs.

 

Please help your child to continue their learning as they were so motivated about it in school.

Thank you!

 

In our art learning, our fabric learning continues....

 

We have continued to be creative and resilient!

Take a look at us in action:

 

           

 

Some of our pieces of fabric art work have now been completed.

Take a look at some of the finished products:

 

     

 

      

 

    

In our Computing learning this half term we have been focusing on staying safe whilst being online. 

 

We have watched a number of video clips to support with our learning and have added the links on this site. We encourage parents/carers to revisit them with your children at regular points throughout the year to keep them safe!

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_duZ-1LApg

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_duZ-1LApg

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_duZ-1LApg

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfgjI84PAXw

 

We asked the children to think about some sites and games that they were familiar with and asked them to sort them according to the safety traffic light system.

 

 

A lot of children said that they like to watch clips on YouTube.

We talked a lot about the difference between YouTube and YouTubeKids.

 

I wanted to share this with grown ups so that if the children are wanting to watch clips, please make sure that they are watching them through YouTube Kids.

This will keep the children safe online.

Thank you.

 

Once the children understood the safety rules for being online; we then began to learn how to search for things safely using child friendly search engines.

 

      

 

The children learnt how to search for pictures online by clicking on letters of the alphabet. The children were asked to search for a selection of animals.

 

The children learnt that directory sites with alphabetical listings offer one way to find things on the Internet.

 

 

Another busy week for us in Class 3!

This week our learning on place value in numeracy continued...

 

This week we were introduced to the language 'equal to', 'more', 'less', 'greater than', 'fewer' and 'less than to compare groups of objects.

 

We choose 2 picture representations of groups. We counted the pictures and represented them using counters on a 10 frame. We could then compare the amount of counters on our 10 frames.

  

 

We then applied the skills we were taught the previous day to complete some word challenges involving comparing groups. We again needed to use the mathematical language to explain our thinking.

 

  

 

To take our learning further we compared three groups.

We used stem sentences to help us compare the groups.

 

Here are some of the sentences we said...

'There are more ladybirds in the green box than the yellow box.'

'There are fewer ladybirds in the yellow box than the pink box.'

The green box has more ladybirds than the yellow box but fewer ladybirds than the pink box.'

 

         

 

We were then introduced to the symbols for greater than (>) less than (<) and equal to (=).

We used equipment to see how the symbols worked.

 

        

 

At the end of the week we were ready to apply the learning we had done practically. We used our knowledge of the symbols to complete some statements given. Here is some examples of our learning.

 

 

 

Take a look at some of our learning from our Enhanced Provision!

 

Enhanced Provision is about using first hand experiences to develop key skills.

 

         

 

The small world area is there to support our development in speaking and listening and is a hook for developing creative writing.

 

The workshop area gives us the opportunity to design and create products. We have been making things linked to pirates. This picture shows the start of a pirate flag. We are experimenting with materials and joining techniques.

 

         

 

In our art work we have been exploring using different media. We are currently using fabric to make creative art representations linked to our pirate theme. We will soon be posting some of our finished pieces of artwork so keep checking back at our webpage.

 

We have also been experimenting with pattern to make sea waves for our pirate displays.

We need to be resilient as artwork takes time.

 

Take a look at our numeracy learning!

 

We are currently learning about place value of numbers to 10.

 

We started by sorting groups of objects  in groups in a variety of ways, for example, sorting a group of children into girls/boys, sorting bears into different sizes or colours etc.

 

         

 

Mrs Kitchen asked us questions like:

 

How can you sort this group of objects?

Are there any different ways they could be sorted?

Can there be more than 2 groups?

 

 

We have also been learning how to represent numbers to 10 using practical equipment and then pictorial representations.

 

        

 

Mrs Kitchen asked us questions like:

 

What can we use to represent the number 3,5,9,etc?

What does each object represent?

How many different ways can we represent 3,5,9 etc?

 

        

 

 

We then looked at counting forwards and backwards.

We played a game to cover numbers so that our partner had to work out the missing number on a  number line.

 

         

 

Mrs Kitchen asked us questions like:

 

Are the numbers getting greater or smaller?

What is the next number? 

Do we always have to count from 0 to get to a number?

What number is missing? How do you know?

 

 

We then had a go at finding consecutive and non consecutive missing numbers in number sequences. 

 

 

Take a look at our literacy learning!

 

We designed and created our own imaginary pirates.

We used the pirate characters we had made to help us generate ideas for our writing.

We rehearsed what we wanted to say before we did any writing.

 

Take a look at some of the writing we have produced!

 

 

This week we have focused on leaving clear spaces between each word.

 

 

We have also been learning how to use a line guide for our writing.

 

 

We are trying really hard to think about which letters touch the top broken line, which letters go down to the bottom broken line and which letters fit perfectly inside the green part of the line guide.

 

 

This has been tricky but we are resilient and we won't give up. 

We are going to keep trying and we will keep sharing our learning to show you

how we are improving.

 

 

 

Look what we found.....

 

We were so excited to find a message in a bottle!

 

 

When we opened it we found a treasure map!

 

 

We soon discovered that it was a map of our school grounds.

We looked at the stars shown on the map and worked together to work out which parts of the school the pirates wanted us to visit.

We then went on a treasure hunt around our school.

 

Here are some pictures of our special adventure.

 

   

 

   

 

We found that the pirates had left us special things at different points around the school.

We used our literacy skills to write down the things that we had found.

 

   

 

The final star on the map led us to a treasure chest.

We were super excited to have found the treasure!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so impressed with how all the children have settled back into school. I am very proud of how they have coped with all the new changes and I have really enjoyed the past few days getting to know everyone. I really hope your child has come home happy and excited about their school days. 

 

I have sent the children home with a 'Home/School Diary'. This is to stay at home for now and can be used to record any reading opportunities shared at home. 

 

At the moment we will not be asking for anything to be sent into school. All children have been provided with everything they need (water bottles, etc). We will be doing PE twice a week but we don't need the children to wear PE kits at this time, they will take off shoes and socks. If your child has earrings can these please be taken out on PE days if your child isn't able to do this independently? Thank you.

 

Our PE days are Tuesday & Thursday

 

I will continue to update this page with any information that you need.

 

Thank you 

Mrs Kitchen

We would love the children to dress up on the first day back in September for our 'Pirate Masterclass' day! Please don't buy an outfit especially, I've attached a picture to give ideas of how you can make an outfit using old clothes from home (there are lots more ideas online). The children can come simply in a hat, eye patch or a complete outfit, it's entirely up to them!

 

 

I hope that you all have a lovely and safe holiday and I can't wait to meet you all in September.

A message from Mrs Kitchen

Still image for this video

We are coming to the end of your Year 1 learning journey and it is now time

to start new adventures as Year 2. 

 

I have posted a video for you to watch and today is the last challenge I will be setting for you.

 

 

Your final challenge is all about sharing your memories!

 

 

It has been a strange year in school, but I have still created some lovely memories of being in Class 3.

One of my favourite memories is the time that we went on a hunt around the school looking for pixies and fairies. We were all so excited about what we found!

 

What are your favourite memories from being in Class 3?

 

Take a piece of paper and fold it into 4. Can you think of 4 different memories of being in Class 3. Write a sentence in each of the squares to explain your memory and then draw a picture underneath.

 

Remember to keep your piece of paper somewhere safe as memories are special!

 

 

Now let's think about your learning on...

 

 

 

Your learning for the last week of term will be set by your new teacher Mrs Bryan.

 

Please click on her class page which is Class 5 to see the challenges that she has set for you.

Hello again Class 3!

 

Are you ready for your next set of challenges?

 

This next learning is back to....

 

 

 

 

 

Today we are going to focus on using describing words.

Describing words are also known as adjectives.

 

 

 

BBC Bitesize has some good resources to help you learn about describing words.

 

I would like to use the first part of this lesson to help you to be able to identify describing words in writing and be able to use them in your own writing. 

 

Please watch the video and complete activity 1 in this lesson.

 

When you have done that follow the activities that I have listed below. You do not need to complete challenges 2 and 3 from the BBC Bitesize lesson.

 

 

Click the link below to access the video clip and acitvity 1.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zd372sg

 

 

Once you have completed activity 1; try these challenges.

 

 

I would like you to have a look at describing the monsters from Monsters Inc using your knowledge of adjectives. 

 

I'm going to use the character Mike as my example.

 

 

 

First I am going to think of some words to describe him:

 

smooth skin

enormous body

tiny legs

sparkly eye

 

 

Now, I'm going to have a go at turning them into sentences:

 

Mike has got smooth skin.

He has got an enormous body and he has got tiny legs.

This character has got one enormous, sparkly eye. 

 

 

Now can you do the same to describe Sulley?

 

 

 

Write a list of describing words first, then have a go at turning them into sentences.

How many descriptive sentences can you write?

This next learning is back to....

 

 

 

Today's learning is about identifying verbs and using them in your writing.

 

A verb is often known as doing word.

Can you remember when we played charades and acted out things like jumping and sleeping?

Those are verbs!

 

Verbs describe an action, state or occurrence.

 

 Perhaps have a go at playing charades with your adult before you start this learning.

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.

 

**Note for parents**

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

 

The website of the week is…

 

phonics play comics.co.uk

 

 

 

This website has some excellent reading materials and is a good alternative to using the online

e-books that I previously shared.

 

When you click on the link you will see the tabs shown below. Click on the tab ‘comics’.

 

 

You will then be shown a range of comics linked to your child's phonics phase.

Try and read 1 comic every day.

 

 

Happy learning everyone!

Your next set of learning challenges will be posted on

Thursday 4th June.

Take care!

Welcome back Class 3!

Are you ready for your final set of challenges for the week?

 

This is a big challenge with lots of different steps. It might be something that you choose to carry on throughout the holidays.

 

Let’s get creative with…

 

 

 

Can you design and create a minibeast hotel?

 

Let’s begin with the planning!

 

Think about which minibeasts you would like to attract to the hotel.

Can you research what environment they like to live in?

 

 

 

Take a look at some of these pictures below for some examples of different minibeast hotel ideas.

 

 

Now let’s begin the designing!

 

Draw a picture of what your minibeast hotel will look like and label it with what equipment and resources you will use to make each part. Here is an example.

 

 

**Finally it’s time to make your minibeast hotel! **

 

 

Don't forget to revisit the website of the week!

 

 

Investigate the rest of the website and pick something of your choice!

I wonder what you will decide to pick?

 

Remember to keep getting your grown ups to ask you questions. This will help check that you have been listening really carefully.

 

Happy learning everyone!

I hope that you all have a lovely and safe half term.

Your next set of learning challenges for the first week back after half term will be posted on

Tuesday 2nd and Thursday 4th June.

Take care!

Welcome to today’s learning Class 3!

Today our focus is literacy and it is all about…

 

 

Rhyming words are words that sound the same when spoken, they don't necessarily have the same spelling pattern. Take a look at these rhyming words.

Which words sound the same but have a different spelling pattern?

 

Now it’s your turn to have a go at rhyming.

Choose an animal and create a list of words that rhyme.

 

 

I picked ‘dog’. Here are the list of words that I could think of that rhymed.

 

frog

log

jog

clog

 

Can you repeat this activity for 4 different animals?

Maybe you could do them all!

 

Let’s take your learning further…

We are now going to have a go at writing poems.

 

 

The poem we are going to try is a rhyming couplet.

Let’s revisit what a rhyming couplet is:

Rhyming Couplet is two lines of the same length that rhyme and complete one thought. There is no limit to the length of the lines. 

 

Use the same pictures as before to create some rhyming couplets based around the animals.

 

 

I have had a go at writing my own rhyming couplets.

 

There was a little frog,

he sat upon a log.

 

 

There was a little pig,

 it liked to wear a wig.

 

 

What ideas can you come up with?

 

**Note for grown-ups!**

You might want to spread the learning out. Spend the first day looking at rhyming words and the second day creating the poems; rather than doing it all in one session.

 

Let’s revisit the website of the week…

 

 

Why not check out the stories shown below?

There is a range of adventures in this collection for you to explore.

 

 

Click on the link below to get started:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/radio/dukelele-duke-the-wizard

 

Remember to get your adults to ask you lots of questions to check that you have understood the story!

 

Happy learning everyone!

Why don't you try and do something to help out around your home?

What about going to tidy your bedroom?

Take care and I will upload the final challenges on Friday.

Welcome back Class 3!

 

Hope that you have all had a lovely weekend and that you are ready for

some new learning challenges this week.

 

We start the week's learning with numeracy and today we are

going to revisit our learning on...

 

 

BBC Bitesize daily have produced a lovely session to support you with your learning of subtraction.

 

 

 

Click on the link below to take you to the lesson.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zjh7mfr

 

 

There is a video to watch first and 3 activities to complete.

 

Good Luck with your numeracy challenge!

 

Now let me introduce the new website of the week...

 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/radio

 

This week is all about developing your listening skills.  

 

Why not start by listening to some of the episodes of;

Maddie's Do you Know?

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/radio/do-you-know-playlist?collection=radio-top-picks

 

There are a range of short and interesting audio clips focusing on how things are

made or how things work.  I particularly enjoyed the 10 minute audio about popcorn.

 

 

**Note for the grown ups!**

Ask your child questions to see if they have understood and listened carefully.

It might be helpful to keep pausing part way through to ask questions, rather than waiting until the end.

 

Happy learning everyone!

Remember to keep your daily exercise going.

This week I am going to be completing some outdoor challenges in the garden.

How will you keep fit and healthy this week?

From

Mrs Kitchen

 

 

___________________________________________________________________________

Welcome back everyone!

 

Here are your final challenges of the week.

 

Today we are going to focus on....

 

 

Watch these video clips about different materials and their properties.

 

 

This video shows a range of objects. Can you say what materials they are made from?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zm2jmp3

 

 

 

In this video clip, children look at objects in the street and talk about what materials they are made from.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zf7jmp3

 

 

 

What other materials can you think of?

 

 

 

Are you ready for your science challenge?

 

 

Can you complete a material hunt around your house?

What are the different things you find made of?

 

 

 

You do not need to print this off but I have added an example of how you could record what you have found.

Fold an A4 piece of paper into 5 and add the material titles at the top.

Alternatively you could do this activity verbally.

Simply talk about the objects around your home and what materials they are made from.

 

 

Your final challenge is to think about why objects are made out of certain materials.

 

 

Click on the link below which will take you to this BBC Bitesize page where you will find this picture.

Click on different objects in the room to find out what the different objects are made from and why!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrssgk7/articles/z9pgcdm

 

 

Let's revisit the website of the week...

 

 

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/

 

 

We have completed a lot of learning this week on reading words that you can blend.

Why not try reading some 'tricky words' this time?

These are the words that you cannot blend (sound out) so you just need to play lots of games so that you can remember and recognise them.

 

Click on your phase and look for this picture to start a game on 'tricky words'.

 

 

 

Happy learning everyone!

Hope you have a lovely weekend and I will post new learning for you on Monday.

Missing you all!

Welcome back Class 3!

 

Are you ready for your next learning challenges?

 

 

Today we are revisiting the learning that we have already done on common and proper nouns.

Can you remember the difference between them?

See if you can explain it to your grown up.

 

 

This lesson from BBC Bitesize provides a video to recap your learning on nouns. The lesson includes a video about minibeasts and some fun challenges to develop your writing skills.

 

 

Click on the link below to get started.

Let’s revisit the website of the week…

 

 

Keep the phonics ongoing. How about playing the buried treasure game?

 Click on your phase and find this picture icon to get started.

 

 

 

**Note to parents/carers**

Please ensure that your child is using ‘pure sounds’ when talking about letter sounds (phonemes).

I have attached a video for you to watch so that you can check if your child is enunciating the phonemes correctly or not. If the sounds are not pure; praise your child for their effort but please model the correct way to say the phonemes.

Just a quick message from me!

Still image for this video

 

 

Hello Class 3!

 

Welcome back to Wednesday's learning challenge.

Today it is...

Today we are going to be writing a set of instructions.

Can you make a sandwich and then write a set of instructions to go with it?

 

 

 

**Don't forget to ask your grown up to help you make a sandwich.**

 

After you have made it, think back to all the steps you took and take time to say the instructions out loud.

 

If you have some scrap pieces of paper you could write down key words for each step.

 

Then put the pieces of paper / instructions in order to check you have them all and that they are in the right order.

 

Then it is time to write them down.

 

 

Can you remember the two things that you need to include when writing instructions?

 

Time connectives and imperative verbs.

 

 

Time connectives go at the start of the sentence and tell us in what order to do things.

 

Remember time connectives are needed to start each instruction. 

(First, Then, Next, After that, Finally)

 

For example: First get two slices of bread.

 

 

Imperative verbs are the bossy words that tell us what to do.

 

Remember imperative verbs usually come after the time connectives.

(get, put, spread, cut, add)

 

 

For example: First get two slices of bread.

 

 

***Don't forget to be really clear in your writing, as if you are talking to an alien who doesn't know how to make a sandwich.***

 

 

Finally, don't forget to use your non-negotiables.

 

Capital letter for the start of a sentence or a proper noun.

Clear spaces between words

Punctuation at the end of a sentence (. ? !)

Neat handwriting

 

Let's revisit the website of the week...

Welcome back Class 3!

Hope that you have all had a lovely weekend!

 

Let’s get back to some learning.

 

Your first challenge is…

 

 

Number bonds are a pair of numbers that add up to make another specific number.

They are sometimes called number pairs

They can show you how numbers join together and how they break down into different parts.

 

It is important that we keep revisiting this learning as the children need to be secure and confident to recall the different number bonds to 10.

The more this is practised the more embedded the facts become!

 

In today's Bitesize lesson, you will learn about number bonds.

This lesson includes two videos and three activities:

 

 

Click on the link below to start the lesson:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zh8m6v4

 

Your next challenge is to check out the webiste of the week which is…

 

 

https://www.redtedart.com/

 

This website has lots of creative ideas. What about making a recycled sock puppet?

Take a look for more information!

 

 

https://www.redtedart.com/classic-sock-puppet-craft-for-kids/

 

 

Are you ready for your final challenge?

 

 

As we have been in our homes for a long time, we are obviously desperately missing our family and friends. Over the next couple of days I want you to write a letter to someone that is special to you e.g. grandparents, a friend etc.

Ask them how they are doing and tell them about what you have been getting up to at home.

You might even want to tell them how much you are missing them.

Don’t forget to start your letter with the greeting:

Dear………..,

 

If it is possible; why not post your letter as a nice surprise?

 

Happy learning everyone.

Missing you all lots!

Hello again everyone!

 

How is the reading challenge going?

 

 

Can you try and do some reading every day?

 Remember this can include your adult sharing a book with you too!

Remember to keep visiting the Oxford Owl website to access a range of reading books.

 

Click on the link below:

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/

 

This next challenge is about developing your creative thinking and your literacy skills.

 

We are going to use this picture to generate creative ideas for our writing.

 

 

Today I would like you to think about planning your own story.

I have added a picture of the story plan that we always use in class when planning a story.

 

Can you explain to your grown up how it works?

 

You do not need to print the plan off or write anything down, but it might just help to

 organise your thoughts.

 

Once you have got your ideas, you need to practise performing your story out loud.

 

 Can you tell your story over and over again until you have remembered it?

Once you know it, ask a grown up if they will watch your story performance.

 

 

(Pretend you are on the stage)

 

 

Once you are confident with your story, you are then ready to write it down!

 

Remember to think about your non-negotiables for writing:

Capital letter for the start of a sentence or a proper noun.

Clear spaces between words

Punctuation at the end of a sentence (. ? !)

Neat handwriting

 

You will also need to think about time connectives when writing your sentences.

Here are a few examples…

 

Suddenly…

 A moment later…

All of a sudden…

 Meanwhile…

Later that day…

 

It takes a long time to prepare and write a story.

You might want to plan and perform the story on one day and then save writing the story for the day after. It’s up to you!

 

Happy learning everyone.

I can’t wait to read your stories!

Remember to check our class page on Friday for our last set of challenges

 for this week.
