Nursery

Nursery – Monday 1st June  

Good morning Nursery! We hope you have enjoyed half term. The weather has been great, so we hope you managed to make the most of it and spend some time outside with your family.

This week, it is PSHE week. A week where we take care of ourselves and others. We hope you enjoy some of the suggested activities below.

Cutting skills:

This week we are going to focus on fine motor exercises and cutting skills. I’m sure you have had lots of big exercises during the warm weather – so let’s try some little exercises too! This all helps us to develop those little muscles in our fingers and supports us to hold writing tools with control.

Loo roll haircut: All you need is an empty toilet roll.  Draw a face on it. Cut long lines length ways (as if it has spikey hair).  Now give it a haircut – just like the picture! It’s lots of fun!

RWI Phonics:

The sounds this half term will be repeated which is great! You will be able to consolidate and practice some of the sounds we have covered in Nursery.  There will also be new sounds we hadn’t covered yet which I’m sure you will enjoy learning and joining in with!

YouTube Ruth Miskin Training website:

Maths activity – number recognition:

All you need is a dice and a piece of paper with dots 1-6 on. You can change the numbers if you prefer. At home, I stuck clear paper on each face of the dice and drew the dots on.  See the picture.

Simply roll the dice with your grown up and tick or put a cross on the matching number. You could turn it into a game and see who manages to tick their numbers first. Good luck!

PSHE Week activities:

What is Gratitude?

Gratitude is one of many positive emotions. It’s about focusing on what’s good in our lives and being thankful for the things we have. Gratitude is pausing to notice and appreciate the things that we may often take for granted, like having a place to live, food, clean water, friends, family, even computer access.

  • Option 1: Introducing a gratitude jar! Each day this week, each member of your family could write something they are grateful for and pop it in your jar. Or if you prefer, write little notes and stick them on your fridge or hang them on a tree in your garden – keep them anywhere you like! You could share them with each other daily, or save them all up until the end of the week.
  • Option 2: Make a poster to thank your postman/postwoman and any delivery drivers that bring food and other items to your house, then display it outside your front door, where they’ll see it. Alternatively, you could write a thank you note for a member of your family for something they have done for you at home (helping you with your home learning, cooking your favourite tea, taking you out for your daily exercise).

Have a great day boys and girls.  We look forward to seeing what you have been up to and those beautiful, smiling faces!

Reception

Reception – Monday 1st June

Good Morning Reception!  We hope you have had a lovely week off and spent some time in the lovely sunshine. This week it is PSHE week. A week where we take care of ourselves and others.

Some of our activities will be linked to the story of the ‘Snail and the Whale’.  If you don’t have the story you can listen to it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x887mPO9X9c  or you can watch it on BBC iplayer following this next link. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000cslw/the-snail-and-the-whale

Phonics– Both set one and set two sounds will restart from the beginning again. If your child is confident with reading all of set one sounds then try starting set two sounds. If your child was working on set two sounds last half term then we would suggest you repeat these sounds. This doesn’t mean you need to watch the videos again (unless your child would like to), simply practise the sound of the day and write words containing that sound. Set three sounds are not recommended until children are fully confident in reading all of set two sounds, including the linked green and red words and alien words. When starting in Year One, your child will start set three sounds. Therefore, we would not recommend moving onto set 3 sounds in this academic year.

Set 1 sounds are continuing and the sound of the day is: m

Set 2 sound (repeated) is: ay

On June 15th, the creators of RWI have explained that there will be additional resources published online to support progression in both set one and set two sounds. These activities will match what we would have been teaching in school so we will keep you updated when the online changes are available for you to access.

An alternative activity for you to complete today could be to create 5 of your own alien words. These are made up words using sounds. Eg: Zan, fip etc.

Writing Look at pictures of snails and whales and think of words or sentences to describe them? How are they different? How are they the same? How do you think they move? What might they eat? Where do you think they live?

Maths – Snails have spirals and different patterns on them. Today we would like you to make your own spiral dangler. How will you decorate it? Will you make a pattern? What colours or shapes will you use? After you have finished why not try making your own edible shells. I think you will enjoy eating them after too! See if you can do some subtraction while you eat them! https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Day-1-The-Snail-and-the-Whale.pdf

Today’s tasks: 
Maths – 
Today, we are going to be thinking about measuring the mass of objects. We started looking at this before our break, and we also did this a little at school before we closed. We used the balancing scales and cubes to measure how much different objects weighed.

Today’s lesson – Summer Term – Week 6 (w/c 1st June) – Lesson 1
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

As always, watch the video first. Remember, you can pause or rewatch as often as you like! Once you have watched the video and you feel happy to, give the worksheets a go! There are images on Facebook and the PDF is on the website and in the email sent to you.

s you know, we have been basing our English work on a different story each week. This week, we are going to be looking at a story called ‘Sayeeda, the Pirate Princess’. For this story, we are going to send out home-school booklet for you to work through. This booklet is for the whole week so don’t do all the activities at oncehttps://www.talk4writing.com/home-school-units/ 

Today, we would like you to start by reading the story. The story is there for an adult to read to you or you can listen to it: 
https://soundcloud.com/talkforwriting/sayeeda/s-ewAQuMNjrJt 

Once you have read the story, we would like you to talk about it. What happened? Who are the characters? What was your favourite part?
Were there any words you didn’t understand? You could look these up with your grownup…  

Then, answer the questions on the page. As always, you can print this booklet to use or just write your answers on paper. We would love to see your work in the comments below 😊 Have fun reading!

Afternoon
This week is PSHE Week! We will have a focus on mental health, mindfulness and wellbeing, which is so important for everyone, and even more so at unusual times like this.

Today, our focus is on ‘gratitude’. What is gratitude?

Gratitude is one of many positive emotions. It’s about focusing on what’s good in our lives and being thankful for the things we have. Gratitude is pausing to notice and appreciate the things that we may often take for granted, like having a place to live, food, clean water, friends, family, even computer access. 


Your Tasks:
Option 1– Introducing a gratitude jar! Each day this week, each member of your family could write something they are grateful for and pop it in your jar. Or if you prefer, write little notes and stick them on your fridge or hang them on a tree in your garden – keep them anywhere you like!

Reading
We hope you are enjoying lots of books while you’re at home 📚 Miss Bunce and Miss Thompson are enjoying some reading in the garden when it is not raining! Remember, you can select a reading book just like you’d get in school; this is outlined in an email sent the 27th April. You might also enjoy checking out this website to see and hear more books being read to you: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/

Year 2

Monday 1st June

Welcome back, Year 2! It’s our first day back after half term and we hope that you have had a super time, full of fun and sunshine. This is a very strange way to start our final half term of the year but we know that you’re going to approach it with the same positivity you have used for the last 7 weeks of home learning.

We’re going to wake up with our 30-minute Joe Wicks lesson. We think that we’re going to find it a bit more difficult after a week off!

Daily tasks

Maths – Before half term, you looked at the 2- and 5-times tables. Today it’s the turn of the 10-times table! Follow the link https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/  then choose ‘Week 6 (w/c 1st June) and then click ‘Lesson 1 – The 10 times-tables’. Watch the video and then have a go at completing the worksheet Lesson-1-The-10-times-table-2019 (click on this link). We have also attached a Top Tips sheet to the e-mail if you need any extra support.  We know you’re going to do really well with this! Question 7 is tricky – we’d love to see your answers!

English – Most of this week’s English work is going to be based around a short film clip called ‘The Way Back Home’. To watch it, click on this link. https://www.literacyshed.com/thewaybackhome.html  Then take a look at the comprehension questions below before watching the clip again.

Activity 1 Look at the events of the story below, they have been muddled up. Can you put them in the right order?

  • The boy gets back to the planet by using a ladder.
  • A young boy builds himself a rocket and goes into space.
  • The boy parachutes to Earth to get some tools.
  • He lands on a faraway planet.
  • He fixes the machines and they both fly off.
  • A friendly alien lands and his spaceship breaks down.
  • The boy’s rocket breaks down.

Activity 2 Discuss the questions below with an adult.

  • How do you think the boy feels when he sees the alien?
  • How do you think the alien feels when the boy fixes his spaceship?
  • If the story were to continue, what do you think could happen next?

Phonics – Read Write Inc daily lessons can be watched from 9.30am onwards everyday – click on this link  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

Set 1, 2 and 3 Speed Sounds lessons will restart and Set 2 and 3 Speed Sounds lessons will include new words for reading and spelling. Join in with the speed sound lesson and the word time spelling lesson as well. Remember to tick or fix! Choose Set 3 sounds video if you have an orange, yellow, blue or grey reading book. If you have a green, purple or pink reading book, choose Set 2 sounds video.

There are new videos added for reading red words too. For those who have a green, purple, pink and orange reading book, read red words 1. For those who have a yellow, blue and grey reading book, read red words 2. If you can’t logon, then you can find green words and red words at the back of your reading diaries.

If you do not read ‘Read Write Inc’ reading books, there is a video for you to watch all about reading longer words! Make your own mini-dictionary to add the words that you’ve looked at. You can add to it each day.

Afternoon 

PSHE – It’s day one of PSHE week and we know that you’re going to really enjoy the activities we have chosen for the week. Today, our focus is going to be on gratitude.

What is Gratitude?

Gratitude is one of many positive emotions. It’s about focusing on what’s good in our lives and being thankful for the things we have. Gratitude is pausing to notice and appreciate the things that we may often take for granted, like having a place to live, food, clean water, friends, family, even computer access.

We’d like you to introduce a gratitude jar! Each day this week, each member of your family could write something they are grateful for and pop it in your jar. Or if you prefer, write little notes and stick them on your fridge or hang them on a tree in your garden – keep them anywhere you like! You could share them with each other daily, or save them all up until the end of the week.

Next, make a poster to thank your postman/postwoman and any delivery drivers that bring food and other items to your house, then display it outside your front door, where they’ll see it. Alternatively, you could write a thank you note for a member of your family for something they have done for you at home (helping you with your home learning, cooking your favourite tea, taking you out for your daily exercise).

We would love to see how you make your gratitude jar!

Remember to read for 15 minutes a day to keep up your super phonics and reading work.

Year 3

Year 3 Monday 1st June 

Welcome back everyone! We’re in the final half term of year 3 now and enjoying some very nice weather – it’s such a pity we can’t be enjoying it in Forest School and on the field but enjoy your jobs wherever you can and stay happy 😊 This week is PHSE week so we’ll be thinking a lot about making sure we stay calm and happy and look after ourselves.  

Today’s tasks: 

Maths To help you with today’s lesson, practice your 4 and 8 times tables on the Hit the Button game https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button. 

Then go onto https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ Summer Term – Week 4 (w/c 11th May) – Lesson 1 – Multiplying and dividing by 4 and 8. This lesson is similar to the one you completed for the 3 times table, before the half term holiday. In the first part of the video, the teacher shows you how to multiply and divide by 4 using pictures, circles with counters and arrays. Watch the examples carefully and have a go at the questions when you are told to do so. You will then need to do the first lot of questions on some paper or in your book. From now on, these will be attached to this post on the website (below) and on your emailThe second part of the video focuses on the 8 times tableFirst the number tracks will remind you of the relationship between the 4 and 8 times tables. Then a Venn diagram will show you the relationship between the 2, 4 and 8 times tables. When you have finished watching the video, complete the rest of the questions. 

Lesson-1-The-4-and-8-times-tables-2019

English – This week we’re going to be using the Oak National Academy lessons for English. Click on the link (it’s the week that says 4th May) 

https://www.thenational.academy/year-3/english/poetry-reading-comprehension-word-meaning-year-3-wk3-1  

Do the little quiz to begin with and check your answers at the end – this is just to help you remember some features of poetry (it’s not a test!). When you’ve done this, watch the video led by Mr Phillips and make sure you listen carefully and follow the instructions – join in where you can. I love the Sound Collector poem that they use in this video and it’s a poem you’ve heard in school before – 3M did a music lesson with it! The focus for this session is Reading Comprehension (understanding) and we will be looking at word meanings – this is just like we do a guided reading session at school. You can either do this by staying on the video and pausing when each question is revealed or click ‘next activity’ and do it from the slides there. Mr Phillips goes through the questions at the end so you can mark them together 😊

Year 4

Year 4 – Monday 1st June
Welcome back, Year 4! Did you enjoy a well-deserved rest over the half-term? The weather was gorgeous which certainly helped! We have missed hearing from you all and would love to see/hear what you have been up to so please share your news and photographs in the comments below! 😀
.
Let’s get back into our routine and join Joe Wicks at 9am for our morning work out!
Tune into David Walliams at 11am to hear him read the next few chapters of ‘Bad Dad’. If you have missed any so far, you can catch up using the following link:
Today’s tasks:
Maths – Time to switch on your maths brains! Over the next few days, we are going to recap finding the perimeter and area of shapes. This is something that we looked at around Christmas time but we’re sure that you’ll remember what to do after watching the clip. Begin by clicking on the following link and then scroll down to ‘Summer Term – Week 4 (w/c 11th May)’ and select ‘Lesson 2 – Perimeter of rectangles’. The video will remind you what to do and will then share some questions for you to answer. We have attached today’s worksheet to our email, so after you have finished the video, there are some questions for you to work your way through. Remember that if the shape is on a grid, you can use the squares to help you work out the length of the sides. However, if the shape does not have a grid, remember to make a note of all the lengths (not just the ones labelled) before finding the total.
English – Before half-term, we began our unit on persuasive writing, so to start off, we would like you to look through your work to rejog your memory and to help you with today’s task. If you missed any of the tasks or need to recap, you can find all the lessons on the following link https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/year-4/english#subjects
Today, we have a fun task for you to complete… you will be writing your own persuasive rap! Click on the following link and go through the activities. You can complete the quiz ath beginning, or you can skip it by clicking ‘next activity’ and it will take you straight to the video clip. After the video clip, there is a PowerPoint for you to work your way through and a success-criteria to help you with what to include in your writing. https://www.thenational.academy/year-4/english/persuasion-write-a-persuasive-rap-year-4-wk4-5 Once you have finished, we would LOVE if you could share your rap in the comments! You could share a photograph of your work, or if you are up to it, you could ask a grown up to record you performing your rap and then post the video.
Afternoon tasks:
It is PSHE week this week and today we are going to be focusing on gratitude…

Year 5

Year 5 – Monday 1st June

Good morning and welcome back Year 5! What a lovely, sunny half term we have been lucky to have! 🌞We hope you have managed to enjoy spending time outside doing some of the things you love.

Let’s get started this morning with a workout with Joe! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKhGfdSvG3s

Today’s Tasks

Maths

This week we will start multiplying unit and non-unit fractions by integers (numbers). The link to the lesson is here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/. You will need to click on ‘Week 6, Lesson 1’. Today, you will only need to watch the video until 5 minutes, 10 seconds and will only focus on unit fractions. Tomorrow, you will look at multiplying non-unit fractions.  Remember that a unit fraction is simply a fraction where the numerator is 1, and a non-unit fraction is where the numerator is more than one. Bar models are used to help you to visualise the fractions. Remember – we only multiply the numerator, not the denominator – this stays the same. Remember not to worry and just have a go 😊

Your worksheets are below:

Challenge

Can you use the column method for: 283 – 33, 299 and 504, 081 + 623,288

Can you use the long method for: 44 x 22 and 36 x 88 (Don’t forget the place holder 0!)

Can you use the bus stop method for: 11,231 ÷ 6 and 7,955 ÷ 3. Express any remainders as a fraction.

Remember! Log onto TTRS for 10-15 minutes. This week, it’s another 5O v 5B battle! Last time we had a battle between the classes, 5B were the winners by a whopping 1,767 points.  Let’s keep this up all week and see which class will be the winners! To access, click here: https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student/1692

Your username and password should be in your Reading Diary but do not hesitate to contact us if you need a reminder 😊.

 

English

This week we are looking at writing instructions about how to capture a dragon. What a coincidence Year 5! We have done lots of English lessons about dragons, so this might come in handy 😊 Today’s lesson concentrates on exploring the language that is used and understanding what the author is trying to say. The link to the lesson is here: https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/set-of-instructions-reading-comprehension-language-year-5-wk5-1

Mr Emmerson will use a text today about ‘Morrison Shelters’ which were used in WW2 and he will take you through the importance of the language used. There is a fabulous picture of the shelter on the worksheet – not sure it looks very comfortable! Answer the questions as best as you can, then start the video again to check your answers.

The spellings this week use the suffix -ibly. Try your best to learn them this week if you can 😊

 

Afternoon – PSHE

Gratitude is one of many positive emotions. It’s about focusing on what’s good in our lives and being thankful for the things we have. Gratitude is pausing to notice and appreciate the things that we may often take for granted, like having a place to live, food, clean water, friends, family, even computer access.

Your tasks for today are:

Option 1– Introducing a gratitude jar! Each day this week, each member of your family could write something they are grateful for and pop it in your jar. Or if you prefer, write little notes and stick them on your fridge or hang them on a tree in your garden – keep them anywhere you like! You could share them with each other daily, or save them all up until the end of the week. Today, Miss Ornsby is grateful that the sun is still shining! 🌞 Mrs Berry is grateful to have her family around her and to be able to use technology to talk to her friends 😊.

Option 2 -Make a poster to thank your postman/postwoman, bin men and women and any delivery drivers that bring food and other items to your house, then display it outside your front door, where they’ll see it. Alternatively, you could write a thank you note for a member of your family for something they have done for you at home (helping you with your home learning, cooking your favourite tea, taking you out for your daily exercise). Remember to show us below in the comments – we really miss seeing all of your lovely work!

Read and Relax

What have you been reading over half term? It would be lovely to hear any recommendations you have! Remember to find time each day this week, to sit down with a book to practise your reading skills. If you access Reading Plus, remember you can log on here too – Mrs Ion loves seeing you active!

Have a fantastic Monday Year 5 – we miss you beyond belief and can’t wait to hear from you all again! Love Miss Ornsby and Mrs Berry ❤ xxx

Year 6

Monday 1st June

Morning Year 6! We hope you had a great half term and enjoyed the sunshine with your families.

Mr Sutherland would like to share the following with you…

As you know, the government has instructed all primary schools that they need to be starting to open their doors to more pupils, specifically Year 6, Year 1, Reception and Nursery over the next few weeks.  Because our teachers will now need to be in school as required from June 1st to prepare for this, Microsoft Teams will need to look slightly different from today.  We will still be posting daily updates and signposting you to learning such as White Rose Maths, for example, but will be no longer be uploading PowerPoints.

We will give you more information as soon as we can.

Stay safe!

Carl Sutherland

Headteacher

Gratitude is pausing to notice and appreciate the things that we may often take for granted, like having a place to live, food, clean water, friends, family, even computer access.

Option 1– Introducing a gratitude jar! Each day this week, each member of your family could write something they are grateful for and pop it in your jar. Or if you prefer, write little notes and stick them on your fridge or hang them on a tree in your garden – keep them anywhere you like! You could share them with each other daily, or save them all up until the end of the week.

Option 2 -Make a poster to thank your postman/postwoman and any delivery drivers that bring food and other items to your house, then display it outside your front door, where they’ll see it. Alternatively, you could write a thank you note for a member of your family for something they have done for you at home (helping you with your home learning, cooking your favourite tea, taking you out for your daily exercise).

Have fun and stay safe!
