Nursery

Nursery – Tuesday 2nd June  

Good morning Nursery! We hope you are still enjoying the sunshine and smiling too! Thanks very much for posting your busy photographs for use to enjoy.

We’re continuing with PSHE, where we take care of ourselves and others. The first activity is easy and we know you will be great. Simply say, PLEASE and THANK YOU every day this week! Don’t forget to put something in yesterday’s gratitude jar.

Fine motor skills:

This week we are going to focus on fine motor exercises and cutting skills.

Peg play: It’s trickier than it sounds but I think you’ll be fabulous! All you need is a container and pegs.  Can you pin the pegs along the edge of the container (see the picture for an idea).

Since it’s a week of being thoughtful, why don’t you help your grown-up hang the clothes on a washing line using pegs? That would be so kind.

RWI Phonics:

Today’s sound is ‘a’ which I’m sure you will enjoy learning and joining in with!

YouTube Ruth Miskin Training website:

Maths activity – number recognition and counting with pegs:

All you need are some containers with different numbers written on. It’s up to you and your grown up to decide which numbers you use. Point to the number, say the number then match it with the correct amount of pegs. Well done – you have learned numbers and exercised those strong fingers of yours!

PSHE Week activities:

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness teaches us how to find some space and stillness in the midst of our busy minds and our hectic lives. During this difficult and strange time, it seems the perfect opportunity for us to practise paying attention on purpose, in the present moment with curiosity and kindness to things as they are. It helps to train your mind to: be focused, attend to the ‘here and now’, be enquiring and curious, be less judgemental and be compassionate.

  • Try doing a mindfulness activity in your garden or during a walk. Choose your favourite spot where you can sit down for a few minutes. Close your eyes and listen for different sounds, think about what you smell or feel. Ask your grown-up if they heard or smelt the same things?
  • On a cloudy day – lie down in your garden or a quiet space and watch the clouds go by (do not look directly at the sun). See what different shapes, animals or pictures the members of your family can see in the clouds – not everyone will see the same.

End the day with some mindfulness breathing. You may recognise Jaime from other Cosmic Yoga video clips.

Have a great sunny day Nursery.  Your teachers would love to see your photographs again.

Reception

Reception – Tuesday 2nd June

Good morning Reception! It looked like you enjoyed making your edible spirals yesterday – yummy! Thank you for your posts. Don’t forget to put something in your gratitude jar if you made one yesterday.

Today’s activities:

Phonics:

Set one sound of the day is: a

Set two sound of the day is: ee

If the weather stays fine you could link your phonics work to your daily exercise. When you’re out and about look for as many ‘a’ or ‘ee’ sounds. Work with your grown up to photograph some or count how many you find.

Writing

Maybe you would like to draw your own seaside picture? Can you draw a picture of what lives under the sea? Can you label what you might see there?

Maths: Today we are going to make cotton bud spirals Make your fingers extra funky with making dots on your spiral. Make it more exciting and look at designing your spiral with more complex patterns. We would love to see your pictures. https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Day-2-The-Snail-and-the-Whale.pdf follow the link to see some addition questions.

Today we would like you to create a glitter jar or bottle. All you need is a bottle or a jar that you can see through, some glitter or sequins and some water. Some of you have made these in school before and enjoyed them.

Fill the bottle/ jar of water 3/4 full of water. Add in glitter/ sequins and/or food colouring. Place the lid on and seal with either sticky tape or a hot glue gun if your grown up has one.

Enjoy some quiet time investigating your glitter jar/ bottle. After you have finished you might want to do some mindfulness breathing following this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wsy2L9VvX90

We can’t wait to make ours to see how the glitter moves.

Have a lovely day everyone 😊

Year 1

Year 1 Tuesday 2nd June 


Good morning, Year 1! We hope you enjoyed our first day back and managed to spend some time in the sunshine ☀️ Yesterday we shared the Joyful June calendar, today’s task is to ‘re-frame a worry and try to find a positive way to respond’ I wonder what ideas you come up with… Look out for the 3pm post which has a colourful suggestion!

Today’s tasks: 
Maths – 
Today, we are going to be thinking about comparing the mass of objects. You will be using the words ‘heavier’ and ‘lighter’.

Today’s lesson – Summer Term – Week 6 (w/c 1st June) – Lesson 2  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.  
Lesson-2-Compare-mass

See if you can use the words ‘heavier’ and ‘lighter’ during your day as you are using different things around the house!

Extra challenge…

English – 
RWInc. Time!
RWInc. Updates – From 1st June, all speed sounds lessons will be available from 9.30am. Those children in Set 2 and Set 3 groups will have new words for reading. All sets will have red words (tricky words) to practise. These are slightly further down the page.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

Miss Thompson’s group – Set 1  and Red Words 1
Mrs O’Hara and Mrs Harm’s groups – Set 2 and Red Words 1
Miss Bunce, Miss Jobey and Mrs Neve’s groups – Set 3 and Red Words 2

If you think your child is very confident recognising and reading the sounds in the set they have been practising, we suggest they try the next set of sounds. For any children who are very confident with Set 3 sounds, there is a video called ‘Read Longer Words’ which they can practise.

We hope you enjoyed the first read of ‘Sayeeda, the Pirate Princess’ yesterday! Remember, the tasks we will be suggesting are all in the booklet:
https://www.talk4writing.com/home-school-units/  

For your task today, we would like you to read the story again. If you had a grownup read it to you yesterday, why not listen to it today: https://soundcloud.com/talkforwriting/sayeeda/s-ewAQuMNjrJt 

A little tip: you will be answering questions about the story for one of your tasks today. 

Once you have read the story for a second time, we would like you to complete the activity on page 6 – for this activity you need to draw a line to match the character to what they said in the book. 

Then, it’s quiz time! Feel free to complete this task on page 7 in any way you like. You could ask a grownup to read the questions and then write a sentence to answer it or make it a little more fun and say the answers out loud like a gameshow, giving yourself points for each correct answer!

As always, we would love to see your work in the comments below 😊 

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.

This afternoon, our focus is on ‘Mindfulness’. 

What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness teaches us how to find some space and stillness in the midst of our busy minds and our hectic lives. During this difficult and strange time, it seems the perfect opportunity for us to practise paying attention on purpose, in the present moment with curiosity and kindness to things as they are. It helps to train your mind to: be focused, attend to the ‘here and now’, be enquiring and curious, be less judgemental and be compassionate. 

An important way of finding some calm within ourselves is through our breathing. This video has a familiar face in it… it’s Jaime from Cosmic Kids! But she’s not doing yoga this time. She’s going to welcome you to the Cosmic Kids Zen Den!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJNOsvTnR1k&list=PL8snGkhBF7ngDp1oJtx5VcjwatxZn8xLK&index=8 

Once you’re feeling relaxed, we have another activity that Mrs O’Hara loves to do to help her find some calm! We have so many budding artists in Year One who we know love to create and colour. Here is a video which shows you how to create your own mindfulness colouring sheet! 🌈 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxCts_bdxRs
We would love to see your creations!

Alternatively, you might have mindfulness colouring books already, or you can print some from online. Twinkl has lots of mindfulness colouring to choose from.

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/ 

Happy reading! 

We know that some of you loved taking part in the Lego challenge we put in your packs last month, so we have a new one for you to try – A month of building. We would love to see your creations in the comments below! 

🌈 Have a terrific Tuesday Year 1 🌈

Year 2

Tuesday 2nd June

Happy Tuesday, Year 2! We hope that you enjoyed making your gratitude jar yesterday and we’re sure that you’ve probably already started to fill it with lots of things that you’re grateful for.

To get warmed up for the day, join in with this Super Movers dance – it’s a great introduction to your maths work today. Just join in with the actions and listen to the song. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-maths-division-with-mighty-red/zrh9scw

Daily tasks

Maths – Today we are going to start to look at division, the inverse of multiplication! Follow the link https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ then choose ‘Week 6 (w/c 1st June) and then click ‘Lesson 2 – Sharing.’ Watch the video and then have a go at completing the worksheet – click this link. Lesson-2-Make-equal-groups-sharing-2019 We have also attached a Top Tips sheet to the e-mail if you need any extra support. Question 5 is tricky – we’d love to see your answers! Good luck!

English – We hope that you enjoyed watching the film clip ‘The Way Back Home’ and have developed a good understanding of the sequence of events. Today we would like you to use your imagination and do a little bit of writing. Watch the clip again and stop it at the point where the boy parachutes down to Earth. https://www.literacyshed.com/thewaybackhome.html  You will notice in the clip that the boy and the alien were communicating with each other. We wonder what they were saying? We would like you to have a go at writing a short conversation between the boy and the alien. How to set your conversation out – when somebody new speaks, you need to start a new line or you may like to write your conversation inside speech bubbles. See the sheet attached to the e-mail if you would like to do it in this way. Make sure your sentences are punctuated accurately. Could they be asking each other questions? Could you use an exclamation sentence? We would love to see your imaginative conversations.

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! Did you manage to read the place names yesterday?

Afternoon

PSHE – It’s day two of PSHE week and we’d like you to firstly add something to your gratitude jar, which you made yesterday. It could be a small thing that you’re grateful for or a big thing. It’s up to you, it’s your jar and that’s what makes it special.

Today’s focus is going to be on mindfulness.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness teaches us how to find some space and stillness in the midst of our busy minds and our hectic lives. During this difficult and strange time, it seems the perfect opportunity for us to practise paying attention on purpose, in the present moment with curiosity and kindness to things as they are. It helps to train your mind to: be focused, attend to the ‘here and now’, be enquiring and curious, be less judgemental and be compassionate.

You can do your first mindfulness activity on your daily walk or even in your garden or outside space. Choose your favourite spot where you can sit down for a few minutes. Close your eyes and think about 4 of the 5 senses. Listen out for different sounds, think about what you smell or taste or feel. Try and identify 5 things and share them with the person on your walk with you. Did they hear the same things?

Another idea is to do some cloud watching – When the weather is good, take a walk into your garden and lie down and watch the clouds go by (do not look directly at the sun). See what different shapes and animals the members of your family see in the clouds – not everyone will see the same.

Finally, we know that we have some amazing artists in our Year 2 classes. Here is a really easy way to make your own – using pens and kitchen roll!  Listen to some relaxing music while you colour. We’d love to see the finished designs.

We hope that the mindfulness activities this afternoon have left you relaxed and still.

If you’d like, hearing someone read aloud to you is another relaxing activity so follow this link to hear the story Hairy Maclary.  https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/hairy-maclary/

Year 3

Year 3 Tuesday 2nd June 

Good morning Year 3, we hope you enjoyed your PSHE’s activities yesterday, we loved seeing some of your photos. If you haven’t posted any yet – we’d love to see them! Some of you may have already noticed that we have set you a new tournament on Times Tables Rock Stars – Year 3 v Year 4, so get playing! 

Today’s tasks: 

Maths https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ Summer Term – Week 4 (w/c 11th May) – Lesson 2 – Multiply 2-digits by 1-digits. We have already done this at school, so hopefully you should remember but don’t worry if you don’t, as the video will help to remind you. At the beginning of the video there is a problem, try and solve this before the teacher shows you how to. Think back to our multiplication lessons and then watch to see if you were right. The first part of the video shows you how to use a place value grid and base 10 to solve the multiplication. Watch the examples carefully and have a go at the ones the teacher asks you to do. Don’t worry if you find these tricky, as he will model how do these afterwards. Once you are confident have a go at the first three questions in the activity. Remember these questions are now attached in your email and on the website post. The second part of the video reminds you how to set this out as a column multiplication. Watch these examples carefully and do the questions when you are instructed to.   

Lesson-2-Multiply-2-digits-by-1-digit-2-2019

English   Click on the link: https://www.thenational.academy/year-3/english/poetry-reading-comprehension-inference-year-3-wk3-2  

Today it’s Miss Cleasby teaching the lesson and the day’s focus is inference. We did quite a lot of work on inference just before the school closures so this should be a good reminder of what to do. Remember to listen carefully to the teacher and pause when she tells you to. Like yesterday, the questions are available on the video and on the slides in ‘next activity’ and you can mark them together with Miss Cleasby at the end. 

Afternoon

Year 4

 Year 4 – Tuesday 2nd June 

Good morning, Year 4!  How did you find yesterday?  We hope that you managed to get back into the swing of things and enjoyed the lovely sunshine!  Thank you for sharing your news and photographs, it was lovely to see your smiley faces again!   

We are loving PSHE week so far… Miss Conway decided to create her own ‘gratitude jar’ and added her first note, and Miss Whaley spent some time creating a poster to thank her postman for working during this difficult time.  Did you spot the ‘Joyful June’ post yesterday?  We think it would be a great idea for you all to join in! 

 9am – Let’s join Joe for a workout!  Exercise is so important right now as it supports our mental health and sets us up for a positive day ahead! 

 11am – Listen to David Walliams share the final few chapters of ‘Bad Dad’.  If you have missed any of the story so far, you can catch up using the following link: 
https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/ 

 Today’s tasks: 

Maths – Time to switch on your maths brains!  How did you find yesterday’s task?  As mentioned, we are going to review finding the perimeter and area of shapes, and today we will move onto finding the perimeter of rectilinear shapes.  Remember, rectilinear shape is a shape that has straight sides and right angles.  To begin, click on the following link and then scroll down to ‘Summer Term – Week 4 (W/c 11th May}’ and then select ‘Lesson 2 – Perimeter of rectilinear shapes’.  First, watch the video clip to remind yourself of how to find the perimeter and then answer the questions which they have set.  We have attached a worksheet to our email, which shares some further questions for you to work your way through. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ 

 English – We have now finished our unit on persuasive writing.  Did your family enjoy listening to your rap?  We are now going to move onto non-chronological reports.  Do you remember when we created our own non-chronological reports based around Dr. Barnardo?  The structure will be very similar!  First, click on the following link and you will be taken to the quiz.  You can complete the quiz or click ‘next activity’ to skip to the video clip.  The video clip shares some questions for you to have a go at, and then when you click ‘next activity’ it will lead you to a worksheet. https://www.thenational.academy/year-4/english/non-chronological-report-reading-comprehension-word-meaning-year-4-wk5-1  

 Afternoon tasks:  

Today we are focusing on mindfulness… 

 What is Mindfulness? 

Mindfulness teaches us how to find some space and stillness in the midst of our busy minds and our hectic lives. During this difficult and strange time, it seems the perfect opportunity for us to practise paying attention on purpose, in the present moment with curiosity and kindness to things as they are. It helps to train your mind to: be focused, attend to the ‘here and now’, be enquiring and curious, be less judgemental and be compassionate.  

Option 1- Create your own ‘Mind Jar’.  Please see the image attached to find out how to make your own jar.  Once you have made it, shake the jar and watch the bits of glitter swirl around – these are like the thoughts and feelings in your very busy brains.  See how when you keep the jar still, the glitter starts to settle down – just like your thoughts and feelings will if you sit still and calmly breathe for a moment.  We would love to see photographs of your jars! 

Option 2- Join in with a Cosmic Yoga video!  Yoga is a great way to take some time out and help you to relax.  There are many videos to choose from, so have a look through and find one that suits you!  Let us know which one you go for.
https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga/videos 

After Miss Conway has had a busy day, she likes to lie in the garden and look up at the sky.  She watches the clouds pass by and likes to look out for different shapes.  This really helps Miss Conway to relax and think about everything that is going on in her head.  You should try it! 

Have a gorgeous day!  Stay safe in the sun and make lots of memories!  We can’t wait to see what you all get up to.  Lots of love, Miss Conway and Miss Whaley 😀 X 

Year 5

Year 5 – Tuesday 2nd June

Good morning Year 5. We hope you are back in the swing of your online lessons and found yesterday’s work manageable. Did you have time to do one of our PSHE activities? Mrs Berry and Miss Ornsby have enjoyed creating their gratitude jars. It’s going to be a lovely, sunny day again today – so remember to get some fresh air 😊

Today’s tasks:

Maths

Today we will focus on multiplying 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’. It is the same lesson that you started yesterday, however today, you will only need to watch the video from 5 minutes, 10 seconds onwards and you will only focus on non-unit fractions. 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 😊

There is some additional help by following this link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1aLze33udU&list=PLQqF8sn28L9xBmQclRrb8YjcM-pzxHjfk&index=19&t=0s        If you watch the video between 16:23 and 24:11 – this is the section of the lesson that you need.

Challenge

What number comes next in this sequence?  628; 648 ;668 ; ______, What is the tenth number in the sequence?

Sort the numbers from smallest to largest. 13,428; 13,228; 14,382; 14, 328

Can you use the efficient method for: 20 x 600, 80 x 90 and 400 x 900 (remember use your known facts first, then think about how many zeros!)

Can you use the bus stop method for: 1,822 divided by 5 and 6,313 ÷ 3? (Show remainders as a fraction).

Remember! Log onto TTRS for 10-15 minutes. 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 is if you need a reminder 😊.

English

Today Mrs Blake will help you with ‘word meaning’. The link to the lesson is here : https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/set-of-instructions-reading-comprehension-word-meaning-year-5-wk5-2

If you take the introductory quiz, the first question asks about ‘imperatives’ – these are verbs that give commands. Don’t worry – just have a go!

You will look at a text about how to escape from some creatures on the moors! You will use your skills to work out the meaning of words – just like we do in Guided Reading. It is helpful to read around the word to look at it in context, and also consider what the ‘root word’ might be.

In the activity, you will be asked to look for ‘synonyms’ (same meaning) or ‘antonyms’ (opposite meaning) of the words that you have been given.

Don’t forget to keep a list of the ‘word of the day’, as this will help in your final piece of writing on Friday 😊. Enjoy!

Afternoon – PSHE

Remember to find something you are thankful for today and pop it into your gratitude jar! 😊What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness teaches us how to find some space and stillness in the midst of our busy minds and our hectic lives. During this difficult and strange time, it seems the perfect opportunity for us to practise paying attention on purpose, in the present moment with curiosity and kindness to things as they are. It helps to train your mind to: be focused, attend to the ‘here and now’, be enquiring and curious, be less judgemental and be compassionate.

Your tasks for today are:

Option 1 – We love a bit of mindful colouring in Year 5, don’t we?! As we can’t give you some of the lovely colouring sheets we use at school, we thought you could make your own! Watch the following video as a tutorial (you can follow is as closely as you like, or you might have your own ideas too) and once you have your design, find some of your favourite colouring pens or pencils, a nice and quiet spot and get colouring. You could play your favourite music or sit outside and listen to the birds tweeting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxCts_bdxRs

Option 2 – Now, time for a ‘Walk on a Rainbow’! As part of your daily outing, we would like you to choose and visit a place that is special to you – it may be quiet, there may be a river, you may be surrounded by trees – it is totally up to you and your family. On your way there (or when you get there) we would like you to take part in a mindful walk – this is an excellent way to clear your mind of clutter, take a break and help free up your mind when you feel stuck indoors. Before you begin, recap the colours of the rainbow so everyone is clear. Throughout the walk, challenge each other to carefully find something to represent each colour of the rainbow. You could bring a small notebook to jot down your answers, or you can simply take note of them in your mind.

Depending on the surroundings, some colours will be more difficult to locate than others; this is part of the fun! Try to keep walking until you have found an example of every colour.

Read and Relax

The journey of a lifetime starts with the turning of a page! Which book will you be reading today? Where will you choose to read today? Why not find a new place in your home each day to do your reading? Remember you can access quizzes for Accelerated Reader directly from here: http://www.dunstonhillcps.co.uk/.

Have a wonderful day, keep smiling – and remember – be thankful for all that you have 😊.

Love, Mrs Berry and Miss Ornsby xoxoxo.
