Spellings

I have now uploaded all of Summer Terms spellings, please use this week to catch up with any missed weeks or challenge the children on spellings they may have found difficult. Below I have included the overview of 6 weeks worth of spellings. 

English

In English this week, the focus will be on Poems. Please challenge your child to say what a poem is? Watch some of the tutorials about poems on: 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjhhvcw/resources/1  

I have also uploaded some activities around some given poems, please don't worry if you can not print out the activity sheets, completing the tasks on plain paper is fine. Why not try performing a short poem or a small section of a poem?... Michael Rosen gives some tips for this at:

Watch and discuss what happens in the story 'Under the Same Sky' read by Tom Hardy: 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000hsff/cbeebies-bedtime-stories-750-tom-hardy-under-the-same-sky 

This story may promote discussion around missing family and friends and what we can do at this time to stay in touch with each other. 

Writing

You could challenge your child to write a letter to their friend, telling them what they have been doing at home, or your child could write their friend or family member a postcard. Why not challenge your child to make something for a friend, a craft, a drawing or even a video.  

 

Phonics

Phonics lessons are available at: 

Please can your child learn Set 3 Phonic sounds which are released daily at 10.30am on https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ/videos 

Below, I have attached the schedule for which sounds are going to be taught each day.

Spellings:

This weeks spellings are: 

 

Science 

Continuing with learning about the human body. This week can you challenge your child to think about our 'Senses'. Do the children know what they are and how many we have? Why not try a game.... put some items into box and cover it over so your child can't see what the item is... can they use the touch sense to guess what the object is? You could also play a 'Heads up' type game, write something from in the room on a piece of paper and stick it on their head, challenge the children to ask questions about what senses they could use to guess the object, for example... 

"Can I smell it?"    No 

"Can I hear it?      No 

"Can I feel it?      Yes  

Is it....   

Watch some videos about the senses and the human body.

Below I have attached some worksheets related to our 'Senses'.  

History

This Friday marks the 75th anniversary of VE day, when victory in Europe was declared during World War 2. At school we would have celebrated and discussed the importance of this historical day. Why not create some bunting and decorate the house, do some wartime cooking or have a safe picnic in the garden or at your front door... if the rain stays away. Below I have attached some activities related to celebrating VE day.  

Stay safe everyone and enjoy your week.

Week 3 - 4th May - Summer Term 1 

Lovely to see some of the work the children completed last week... 

Summer Term 1 - Week 2 - 27th April 2020

Hi everyone, how did last week go? I have included this weeks activities below, if you have trouble accessing the internet please continue to work from their workbooks. This week, I have included some activities that do not require internet access and all activities can be completed on plain paper (If you have a problem accessing the internet/device/computer or you are in need of some text books please email me and I will try my best to support you with this). When being educated at school the children would engage in several hours of learning a week. We know that this will be difficult to replicate at home so please just do the best you can. We do not expect all the tasks to be completed. Please help your child to choose the ones that interest them, and which ones they want to complete. 

 

If you have been watching the daily BBC Bitesize lessons, you will know they are very active and fun, if not... this is a great one to start with.

English 

Please watch the story 'Man on the Moon' being read aloud at: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt5zQ1UO6rE  and challenge the children to discuss what happens in the story. 

 

Writing Challenge 1: 

"Imagine that you are going to travel to the moon yourself, can you write some sentences about travelling there?" 

Think about these questions: 

How would you get to the moon? 

Would anyone go to the moon with you? 

What is it like on the moon? 

What would you do on the moon?  

 

Remember to use: 

-Your Phonic knowledge to write words. 

- Use finger spaces. 

- Use capital letters at the beginning of sentences and for names. 

- Use full stops.  

 

Writing Challenge 2: 

"Can you write a list of 10 things you would take to the moon with you?" 

Please use your Phonics to write each word and discuss why you would want or need that item with you on your adventure. A worksheet for this can be accessed below.

As a further challenge I have also included a worksheet called 'What's inside my body?' aimed at naming and locating some organs. I know you may not be able to print this sheet, but be as create as you wish, you could ask your child to locate and label them on a real human, chalk around your child outside and then challenge them to label the location of their organs, draw a picture or create a model of the human body using household items for the organs. I would love to see any pictures of this activity being completed. 

I know lots of children are enjoying completing Timetables Rockstars, Lexia and their workbooks so please continue with these if your child is enjoying them. Any questions I will try my best to support you via email. Thanks to everyone keeping me updated, it's lovely to hear from you and it keeps me going!
