Nursery

Nursery – Monday 8th June  

Good morning Nursery. We hope you’ve had a good weekend and managed to make the most of the wet and windy weather. This week, we hope you can take part in some of the exciting Forest School activities we have planned for you.

RWI Phonics:

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

YouTube Ruth Miskin Training website:

Maths activity – numbers:

We are going to learn how to put numbers in the right order today. You can use anything you have in the house.  Ask your grown-up to find ten things and on each item, write a number from 1-10 (you can use lower or higher numbers if you prefer). Ask your grown-up to hide the items in one room.  Once you have found them all, see if you can put them in the right order. As a challenge, your grown-up can ask questions such as; which number is before or after 5? Which number is last? In my house I put stickers on building blocks but you could put numbers on tins from the cupboard.

Forest School activities:

  • Option 1 – Create a sound map

Today why not relax and enjoy focusing on a different sense by listening to and mapping the many sounds around you.

You will need:

Paper and a pen or pencil

What to do:

Find a place outdoors or where you can hear the outdoors like your garden, doorstep or a safe open window. Mark a cross in the centre of the paper to show where you are. Sit still and listen carefully for a few minutes to all the sounds you can hear, then draw them on the paper to show what they are and where the sound is coming from. Talk about your map with someone once you’ve finished: What might you hear? Listen out for birds, the wind, cars, leaves, aeroplanes and more. What was your favourite sound? Which sound did you like the best and why? Were there any sounds you didn’t know? What was new and do you know where it came from?

  • Option 2 – Tiny Treasure Hunt

You’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for this activity. Hunt for really small things you can fit into a small box or envelope. Collect little leaves, blades of grass, small snail shells, tiny twigs, feathers and pebbles. Turn it into a competition with your family – who can fit the most items inside their box?

Story time – The Tiger who came to Tea:

Your grown-up will introduce the sensory tub (see picture). We are going to act out the story ‘The Tiger Who Came for Tea’ using all the materials in the tub. Talk about what is inside the tub. Talk about the letter ‘t’ and what sound it makes (we looked at this sound during Friday’s RWI session).

Add 2 cups of warm water to the tub. Adding the water is like making the tea with the tea bags included. Watch the colour of the water change.

Join in the fun and take on one of the character roles. Role play the story and events that happened in the story. Ask questions such as, what happened next and what else did the tiger do?

Exploring the curiosity of the tea bags: What are they? Why are they changing the colour of the water? What is inside the bag? What is the bag made of? Enjoy exploring the sensory tub.

Have a great day Nursery and play, play, play!  Sending the biggest hugs and smiles your way!

Reception

Reception – Monday 8th June

Good Morning Reception!  We hope you have had a lovely weekend. We had such a busy first week back and it was lovely to see lots of comments and photos of many of you.

This week we are very excited to be part of Forest School week and we know you are going to love the activities we have planned! 😊

Phonics

Set 1 sound of the day: i

Set 2 sound of the day: ‘oo’ as in look at a book.

Red word reading is also continuing – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

An alternative activity could be to blow up a balloon and ask your grown up to write some of your green words on it with a marker. Play pass the balloon and wherever your thumb lands on the balloon you have to read the word that is closest.

This week our activities are around the story ‘The Princess and the Wizard’ by Julia Donaldson. If you have it at home you can share it with your adult, if not there is a link here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=babXCIRMjQM

Writing –

Princess Eliza was having a birthday party. We would like you to make some invitations for her to send? Think about what information an invitation needs to have on. Where is the party going to be? Whose party is it? What kind of party? Will they play games?

Maths – In the story it looks at the days of the week. Look at the slides on the following link and see if you can find out which day is missing! Don’t forget to sing our ‘Days of the Week’ song to help you. I am sure your adults will enjoy joining in too. https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Day-1-The-Princess-and-the-Wizard.pdf

Why don’t you design your own outfit for the party? What would you wear? You can design a cloak for the Princess and the Wizard too.

Forest School activities:

Have a lovely day!

Sending lots of smiles your way 😊

Year 1

Year 1 Monday 8th June
Good morning and happy Monday Year 1! We have missed you 🌈 How was your weekend?

Today’s tasks: 
Maths – 
Today, we are recapping something we looked at in school before school closed; we are counting in 2s! When we count in 2s, we skip a number each time. What do the numbers end in when we count in 2s? We have added a numberline to help you, or you might like to create your own!

Today’s lesson – Summer Term – Week 7 (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.
Lesson-1-Count-in-2

If your child finds this tricky, we suggest pausing the video after 6m 5s when counting backwards is introduced. We have suggested some practical counting in 2s activities you might like to try: 

  • Create a ‘skip counting’ hopscotch grid. You could offer your child some other numbers they wouldn’t jump on as they get more confident with this. 
  • Collect items that you have pairs of around the house (shoes, socks, gloves, earrings etc.) and count how many you have in 2s. 
  • Skip counting shape drawing. Draw a circle and write numbers around the outside (they don’t have to be in order). Your child then draws lines to the numbers in order counting in 2s to create a pattern. Then they can colour it! 
  • Counting in 2s dot to dot. We have attached these as a PDF in the email and on the website. Counting in 2s dot to dot

Extra challenge… try to explain your answer!

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 2and 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 are enjoying the home-school English booklets! We think they are a great way to share activities with you, in a way that is similar to how we teach in the classroom.  

Today we are starting a new story called ‘A tale of Mischief with Pippety Skycap’. I think you will love this one – you might even recognise some of the characters!
https://www.talk4writing.com/home-school-units/ 
Before you read, have a look at the image on the front. What do you think the story is about? Are there any words you don’t understand? You can also listen to the story: https://soundcloud.com/talkforwriting/pippety/s-P2LOxhx3Hmn  

Task 1: Talk to your grownup about the story and answer Pippety’s questions. What parts of the story did you like the most? Did anything about the story surprise you? Do you have any questions? You might have different opinions to your grownup.  

Task 2: Think about the story – can you remember who said what? Look at the speech bubbles on page 7. You can read/listen to the story again to refresh your memory and the characters at the bottom of the page might help too!  

Task 3: Quiz time – can you answer the questions? There are 8 questions about the story for you to answer on page 8. You can look back at the story to help you. The special challenge is to answer these in a full sentence. Remember, it is best to say our sentence out loud before we write it down.   

We hope you enjoy the story this week and would love to hear what you think of it! As always, let us know how you get on and post your pictures in the comments below 😊  

Afternoon
Today is the start of something we know you will all be excited about – 🌳 Forest School 🌳 week! In the afternoons, we will be setting activities related to the outdoors and nature. It is so important to get outside, not only to develop a healthier lifestyle, but also to learn, develop confidence, improve wellbeing, explore, develop skills, and much much more!

Activities:
Option 1Create a sound map – today why not relax and enjoy focusing on a different sense by listening to and mapping the many sounds around you.  

You will need: 
Paper, a pen or pencil. 

What to do: 
Find a place outdoors or where you can hear the outdoors like your garden, doorstep or a safe open window. Mark a cross in the centre of the paper to show where you are. Sit still and listen carefully for a few minutes to all the sounds you can hear, then draw them on the paper to show what they are and where the sound is coming from. Talk about your map with someone once you’ve finished: What did you hear? Listen out for birds, the wind, cars, leaves, aeroplanes and more. What was your favourite sound? Why? Were there any sounds you didn’t know? What was new and do you know where it came from? 

Here is an example to give you an idea:

Option 2Tiny Treasure Hunt – you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for this activity. Hunt for really small things you can fit into a small box or envelope. Collect little leaves, blades of grass, small snail shells, tiny twigs, feathers and pebbles. Turn it into a competition with your family – who can fit the most items inside their box? 

You can take a magnifying glass on your scavenger hunt to help investigate new things. Can they see the patterns, colour changes and interesting textures? 

Reading
Reading is an excellent way to help you to relax, as well as an important skill to develop. See if a grown-up will read a favourite story to you, or you might be able to access some online stories to enjoy! This website has lots of books you can see and hear being read to you: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/
Remember, you can select a reading book just like you’d get in school to keep reading books at the appropriate phonic level; this is outlined in an email sent the 27th April 📚 

Happy reading!

🌈 We are missing you all lots, have a brilliant Monday! 🌈

Year 2

Monday 8th June                                               

Good morning, Year 2! We hope that you’ve had a fantastic weekend and that you’re well rested. A huge well done to those of you that have been reading each day. We’re sure that you’ve enjoyed some great stories during this time!

Let’s wake up with Joe Wicks’ PE lesson.

Daily tasks 

Maths – This week, we will be learning about money. Before we look at some videos and worksheets, which use your knowledge of money, we’re going to start the week with some revision.

Activity One: · Look at the coins below, can you name them all and put them in order from least to most value? · There is one coin missing. Can you draw it? · Can you draw three notes that could also be added to this picture? Do they have a larger or smaller value than the coins in this picture?

Activity Two: How many different ways can you make 7p, 20p, 35p, 18p, 55p? Remember to record your answers as addition calculations. For example, if I were making 6p, I’d write my answer like this 5p + 1p = 6p.  2p + 2p + 2p = 6p.   1p + 1p + 1p + 1p + 1p + 1p. You could choose some of your own amounts to make.

Activity Three: Play the game! Make different amounts of money but in a toy shop game. You can only use one coin at a time so if you select 2p, 5p or 10p, you will be able to use your times tables knowledge. Follow this link to try: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/money/toy-shop-money

Activity Four: If you would like a real challenge, there is a worksheet to try, click on this link. Revision lesson If you’ve managed activity one and activity two, you will be absolutely fine with the questions!

English – We hope you enjoyed the format of last week’s English work because this week we have planned our English lessons in a similar way. This week we are going to base our work on a short film clip called ‘A Cloudy Lesson’ which can be watched by clicking on this link. https://www.literacyshed.com/cloudylesson.html

Before you watch it, think about the title, ‘A Cloudy Lesson’. Can you make a prediction about what the film is going to be about? Now watch the first 20 seconds. Do you want to change your mind? Enjoy watching the rest of the clip – you may even want to watch it a second time.

Discuss the following comprehension questions with a grown up.

  1. How many different shape clouds did the grandfather and his grandson make?
  2. Do you think the title ‘A Cloudy Lesson’ is a good title for the film? Explain your answer and give a reason.

Now we would like you to focus on the thoughts and feelings of the boy. Think of 3 or 4 questions that you want to ask the boy in the video and then put yourself in his shoes and answer. This is called hot-seating and we have tried it before in class. For example,

Q   How did you feel when you couldn’t make a cloud?

A   I felt very disappointed because I thought it would be easy.

You don’t have to write the questions down but you can if it helps (if you do, don’t forget question marks for the questions). Maybe your grown up at home could ask you the questions and you could give the answers in the role of the boy.


Phonics –
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.

Then have a go at reading the red words. 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.

 Afternoon

 Forest school – We know that you’re going to absolutely love this week’s theme of afternoon learning. It’s all about Forest School!

Today there are two options for you to choose from or you might decide to do both!

Option 1: Create a sound map

Why not relax and enjoy focusing on a different sense by listening to and mapping the many sounds around you.

You will need: • Paper • Pen or pencil

Sit still and listen carefully for a few minutes to all the sounds you can hear, then draw them on the paper to show what they are and where the sound is coming from. Talk about your map with someone once you’ve finished: What might you hear? Listen out for birds, the wind, cars, leaves, aeroplanes and more. What was your favourite sound? Which sound did you like the best and why? Were there any sounds you didn’t know? What was new and do you know where it came from?

Collect little leaves, blades of grass, small snail shells, tiny twigs, feathers and pebbles. Turn it into a competition with your family – who can fit the most items inside their box?

You can take a magnifying glass on your scavenger hunt to help investigate new things. Can you see the patterns, colour changes and interesting textures?

Reading
Reading is an excellent way to help you to relax, as well as an important skill to develop. See if a grown-up will read a favourite story to you, or you might be able to access some online stories to enjoy! Today, why not listen to ‘The Dragon Machine’ story https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/the-dragon-machine/

Remember, you can select a reading book just like you’d get in school to keep reading books at the appropriate phonic level; this is outlined in an email sent on the 27th April.

We would love to see some pictures of you enjoying your sound map or tiny treasure hunt! Please attach them to this facebook post.

Year 3

Year 3 Monday 8th June 

Morning folks! We hope you had a good weekend (even it was a bit on the wet side!). This week is FOREST SCHOOL WEEK and if you haven’t watched the video yet, please do 😀  It definitely put a smile on our faces making it and watching it (let’s just hope we see the s-u-n comes back again soon so we can get outdoors more!).  

Today’s tasks: 

Maths- Start this week’s maths by going on Times Tables Rock Stars.  A new tournament has been set. See if you can help your class to win!  

Today we’re going to play some games to start us off for the week. We’ve set a couple of games on Purple Mash for you https://www.purplemash.com/#tab/pm-home/maths  

The first is Monster Multiplication’ – you need to be as quick as you can to answer multiplication questions. The bigger your score, the more prizes you get in your baskets and the further you can go!  

The second game is ‘Factoroids’. A factor is simply a number that divides into another number exactly and without leaving a remainder – the numbers in your times tables! For example, a factor of 4 would be 2 and a factor of 8 could be 4 or 2. In this game you need to turn the little calculator in the middle of the screen and fire numbers at the factoroids that divide into the factoroid to stop it crashing into you! For example, if the factoroid has a 4 on it, you need to shoot a 2 at it to stop it. Have some fun with this and if you want to, you could write down some factors of numbers you discovered on some paper. Enjoy! 

English – This week we are going to be using a different writing unit from Talk for Writing by Pie Corbett. There are many tales about trolls that have been told and retold for centuries. Trolls are often thought to be very large, ugly creatures, like giants or ogres, that live in the mountains and are dangerous to human beings. But are all trolls like this? In a country called Iceland, there are some great stories about Icelandic trolls. In some of their stories there are terrible trolls but in others there are also some that are peaceful, friendly and helpful. 

Your task today is to find out about Iceland so you have a good idea of the background setting for the story we’ll read tomorrow. These questions might help you picture it and you might even find some photos online to help you visualise the place. 

  • Where is it?  
  • What is the landscape like?  
  • Is it a flat country or mountainous?  
  • Does it have any unusual features that we don’t have in the UK?  
  • What are its beaches like?  

Afternoon  

Option 1 – Create a sound map  

Today why not relax and enjoy focusing on a different sense by listening to and mapping the many sounds around you. Mrs McLean is going to do this one from the yarden at lunchtime (as long as the rain holds off! otherwise I’ll be sitting in the porch instead :-D).   

You will need: • Paper • Pen or pencil 

What to do: 

Find a place outdoors or where you can hear the outdoors like your garden, doorstep or a safe open window. Mark a cross in the centre of the paper to show where you are. Sit still and listen carefully for a few minutes to all the sounds you can hear, then draw them on the paper to show what they are and where the sound is coming from. Talk about your map with someone once you’ve finished: What might you hear? Listen out for birds, the wind, cars, leaves, aeroplanes and more. What was your favourite sound? Which sound did you like the best and why? Were there any sounds you didn’t know? What was new and do you know where it came from? 

                                                              

Option 2 – Tiny Treasure Hunt 

You’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for this activity. Hunt for really small things you can fit into a small box or envelope. Collect little leaves, blades of grass, small snail shells, tiny twigs, feathers and pebbles. Turn it into a competition with your family – who can fit the most items inside their box? I’ll bet Mrs Cowan’s girls will be great at this! 

You can take a magnifying glass on your scavenger hunt to help investigate new things. Can you see the patterns, colour changes and interesting textures?

Year 5

Monday 8th June.

Good morning Year 5! We are so excited to begin our online learning today 😊. It is therefore extremely important that you are all comfortable with how to log on to Teams. Instructions have been sent home via email so please check. We will be posting all of your maths and English work on our Teams platform from today onwards. Our daily Facebook posts will signpost you to Teams for your morning activities, and all afternoon activities will remain on these posts. It would also be very helpful if you could join Teams before 9.30 am to say ‘hello’ – a little bit like our morning register – so that we know that you are safe and well and are ready to learn. 😊 

We have created a timetable so that you are able to structure your morning – just like at school. 

0930 – 1030 Maths.  

10.30 – 11.00 Break  

11.00 – 12.00 English. 

Mrs Berry and Miss Ornsby will be available on the chat to support your learning until 12 noon.  

Today’s Tasks: 

Maths 

We will start our morning with ‘Morning Maths’ with Mrs Berry, before we move on to a lesson to recap addition of numbers with more than four digits. All of the videos that you need to watch and worksheets are posted on an ‘assignment’ in Teams – don’t worry – once you are in the chat we will help you with how to access. The answers will be released at 10.20am on Teams so that you can self-assess your work and let us know how you got on 😊. Don’t forget – we are there to help on the Team chat. 

English 

We will start our lesson with Miss Ornsby who will take you through some important aspects of our English lesson before we move on to the first video to start our English topic – alternative story endings. This will be familiar to you as we have written alternative endings to stories this year 😊. All of the videos you will need will be posted in an ‘assignment’ in Teams. Just like Maths, don’t worry if you are worried about how to access, we can help you in the chat – it should all become clear when you are logged on 😊. Remember you can ask for help at any time until 12 noon in our class chat. 

Afternoon – Forest School  

We are all looking forward to spending some time this week in the fresh air with our Forest School theme.

You have two options – you could do one or both!  

Option 1 – ‘Create a sound map’  

Today, why not relax and enjoy focusing on a different sense by listening to and mapping the many sounds around you.  

All you will need is paper and something to write with!  

What to do – Find a place outdoors or where you can hear the outdoors like your garden, doorstep or a safe open window. Mark a cross in the centre of the paper to show where you are. Sit still and listen carefully for a few minutes to all the sounds you can hear, then draw them on the paper to show what they are and where the sound is coming from. Talk about your map with someone once you’ve finished: What might you hear? Listen out for birds, the wind, cars, leaves, aeroplanes and more. What was your favourite sound? Which sound did you like the best and why? Were there any sounds you didn’t know? What was new and do you know where it came from? 

Option 2 – Tiny Treasure Hunt  

You’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for this activity. Hunt for really small things you can fit into a small box or envelope. Collect little leaves, blades of grass, small snail shells, tiny twigs, feathers and pebbles. Turn it into a competition with your family – who can fit the most items inside their box?

Maths:

Today we are reviewing our knowledge of calculating with Metric measures. To begin with, open the True or False pdf and see if you can answer the question – is it true or false? The answer is on the second page. Next, there is an accompanying Metric measures PowerPoint with questions for you to complete in your red Maths book OR you can open the Metric measures Task pdf and print off the questions. When you have completed the task, open the Metric measures ANSWERS pdf and self-assess. There is also a Challenge task for you to complete if you wish, which consists of 2 random questions. Once you have completed them, self-assess using the Challenge Answers.

English:

Today we are continuing with our writing work in Jumanji / The Game. We are planning and writing a new problem in a new setting. Open Jumanji day 6 by following the instructions above. Where could it be? At the swimming baths? At the beach? In the Co-op? Make it an ordinary setting for an extraordinary thing to happen in. Jot down your ideas by recreating the grid ( if you wish) in your blue jotter. Then write this problem section by following the instructions given. We would love to see some of your writing shared either on Teams chat or our daily Facebook post.

Reading:

This week we have five more short texts for you to choose from. Remember you can choose to read any text on any day. If you would like to complete the questions please do so in your blue jotter – the answers are on the final page of the document. If not – that is fine – just enjoy reading about periods of history you have previously studied during your time at Dunston Hill.

  • Into the Mines – Victorians
  • Tomb Raider – Ancient Egyptians
  • The Water Tower – WW2
  • The Trojan War – Ancients Greeks
  • Gladiators – The Romans

To access the texts open the file called ‘Guided Reading’ after following the Teams instructions at the top of this post.

Additionally, please aim to complete 30 minutes on Reading Plus today.

Afternoon: This week’s theme is Forest School. Today you have a choice of options:

Option 1

Create a sound map

Today why not relax and enjoy focusing on a different sense by listening to and mapping the many sounds around you.

You will need: • Paper • Pen or pencil

What to do:

Find a place outdoors or where you can hear the outdoors like your garden, doorstep or a safe open window. Mark a cross in the centre of the paper to show where you are. Sit still and listen carefully for a few minutes to all the sounds you can hear, then draw them on the paper to show what they are and where the sound is coming from. Talk about your map with someone once you’ve finished: What might you hear? Listen out for birds, the wind, cars, leaves, aeroplanes and more. What was your favourite sound? Which sound did you like the best and why? Were there any sounds you didn’t know? What was new and do you know where it came from?

Option 2

Tiny Treasure Hunt

You’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for this activity. Hunt for really small things you can fit into a small box or envelope. Collect little leaves, blades of grass, small snail shells, tiny twigs, feathers and pebbles. Turn it into a competition with your family – who can fit the most items inside their box?

You can take a magnifying glass on your scavenger hunt to help investigate new things. Can they see the patterns, colour changes and interesting textures?

REMEMBER TO POST YOUR WONDERFUL WORK ON OUR CLASS FACEBOOK PAGE.

Have fun and stay safe!

Miss Parkin and Miss Reay 😊
