Nursery

Nursery – Tuesday 9th June  

Hello Nursery. Here is to another day of learning and having fun. We hope you were able to take part in some of yesterday’s activities and may want to try today’s tasks.

Did you see the 3’ o clock post about the Dunston Hill Friendship Tree? Look out for messages from your teachers this week and please add you own message or picture. Don’t forget to send us a photo if you choose to.

RWI Phonics:

Today’s sound is ‘n’ which I’m sure you will enjoy learning and joining in with! What can you find in your house that begins with the ‘d’ sound?

YouTube Ruth Miskin Training website:

Maths activity – numbers:

To play Smack the Number, you just need a set of foam numbers or numbers written on paper and a fly swatter/bat or newspaper rolled into a bat shape.

First challenge is to order the numbers (you did this yesterday). Sing a song while you do this – try ‘1,2,3,4,5 Once I caught a fish alive’.  Once your numbers are in order, ask you grown-up to call out numbers and you need to smack each number called. It’s a fun game and you get to practice your number skills too! You could try changing numbers into some of the letter sounds we have covered in RWI.

Forest School Activities:

  • Option 1: Let’s get muddy with muddy faces
    What you need:
    Trowel or small spade, small bucket of water (for mixing the mud), soil, sticks, leaves, stones.

Mix up the soil and water and enjoy squeezing and squelching the mud through your fingers.

Find a tree and shape some mud faces by pressing down the edges of the mud so it holds firmly on to the tree. Once the mud has stuck, the creative magic begins! Will it be an animal or insect? Will it be the face of someone you know, or a teacher or a character in a story? Will it have big or small eyes? What about ears and hair? Maybe the face will turn into a creature with arms, legs and toes. You could end up with a family of weird and wonderful faces. Don’t forget we would love to see your muddy creations.

  • Option 2: Potions and Wands
    Have you ever wanted to become invisible or turn your parents into a frog? Would you like to shrink to the size of a snail or fly a broomstick? It’s time to practise your magic! Look at the instructions on the image for ideas.

 

Story time – Room on The Broom

Link to story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRany_OScms

You will need an empty kitchen roll tube and some paper. You could use a stick or fern leaves or straw you might find during your walk, if you prefer. This may look more authentic!

Colour your roll in black or brown, then simply cut fringes around the edge of another sheet paper and roll it around the tube. Behold a truly magnificent broom!

Can you re-tell the story to your grown-up? How many things can you fit onto your broom stick?

We hope you have another good day and we would love to see those happy faces again. From all of your Nursery teachers 😊.

Reception

Reception – Tuesday 9th June

Good morning Reception! We’re glad to see so many of you enjoyed the activities we set yesterday. We hope you spotted the 3’ o clock post too about the Dunston Hill friendship tree. Look out for our messages this week and please add you own message or picture. We’d love to see a photo if you do.

Phonics:

Set one sound of the day is: n

Set two sound of the day is: ar

An alternative activity could be to use small sticks or loose parts to create your red and green words. Please see the picture.

Writing – Now your party invitations are ready to go (and what fabulous invitations they were!) it is time to go shopping for the party. Today we would like you to write a shopping list. What kind of things would you have at a party? See if you can use some describing words. What kind of cake would you have? Don’t forget something to drink and some decorations too!

Maths: In the story the Princess if given a challenged on every day of the week. With a total of 7 challenges. Can you give yourself 7 challenges? These might be active challenges to get your bodies moving or they might be 7 kind challenges. After why don’t you see if you can make your own counting book. The wizard counts when the Princess hides. Follow the link to give you some ideas on how you can show the different numbers. For a bit of fun, why not try a game of musical statues. Who can stay still the longest? https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Day-2-The-Princess-and-the-Wizard.pdf

Year 1

Year 1 Tuesday 9th June
Good morning and happy Tuesday, Year 1! 🌈 Did you see our ‘Teddy bears’ picnic’ video yesterday? All of the staff had so much making it, I wonder what Forest School activities we will be doing today…  

Today’s tasks: 
Maths – 
We hope you enjoyed counting in 2s yesterday! It is very useful! Today, we are counting in 5s!
Today’s lesson – Summer Term – Week 7 (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. We have attached a numberline for counting in 5s that might be useful.
Lesson-2-Count-in-5s
What do you notice about the numbers when you count in 5s? What do they all end in? 

As we suggested yesterday, if your child finds this tricky, try pausing the video after 6m 10s when counting backwards is introduced. Try some of the practical activities we suggested yesterday, but for counting in 5s: 

  • Create a ‘skip counting’ hopscotch grid (see image shared yesterday). You could offer your child some other numbers they wouldn’t jump on as they get more confident with this. 
  • Use a ball or a soft item and pass it around your family in a circle, counting in 5s. You could even set a lucky number and whoever says that is the winner! How long does it take you to count to 50 in 5s? Can you beat your last time? How quickly can you do it? ⏲️ 
  • Skip counting shape drawing (see image shared yesterday). 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 5s to create a pattern. Then they can colour it! 
  • Create a large counting in 5s number line. If you have a large piece of paper, or you could stick some together if not, paint your hands and print them onto the paper. Either above or below your handprints, count in 5s. 

Extra challenge…
Question 5 on the worksheet is a more challenging question. Can you work it out? Can you explain it to your grown-up? 

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.  

Have another read of ‘A tale of Mischief with Pippety Skycap’ to remind yourself what happens in the story: 
https://www.talk4writing.com/home-school-units/  

https://soundcloud.com/talkforwriting/pippety/s-P2LOxhx3Hmn 

Task 1: On pages 9 and 10 there are 3 words from the story that we would like you to look at in more detail: soft, sharp and shiny. Can you talk to your grownup about these words and complete the tasks. 

Task 2: Watch Out! We would like you to create a poster that will warn everyone to look out for Pippety’s tricks. You have created wanted posters before so this shouldn’t be too tricky, there is a template that you can use on page 11 or you can design your own. Remember, you will need to include what he looks like, the tricks he might play, and you might want to offer a reward!

We hope you are enjoying 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
We hope you enjoyed our first day of Forest School Week, I know we did! Remember to look out for the 3pm posts, too. 🌳 Remember, 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 1: Let’s get muddy with muddy faces  
What you need: 
Trowel or small spade, small bucket of water (for mixing the mud), soil, sticks, leaves, stones  

Mix up the soil and water and enjoy squeezing and squelching the mud through your fingers. 

Find a tree and shape some mud faces by pressing down the edges of the mud so it holds firmly on to the tree. Once the mud has stuck, the creative magic begins. Will it be an animal or insect? Will it be the face of someone you know, or a teacher or a character in a story? Will it have big or small eyes? What about ears and hair? Maybe the face will turn into a creature with arms, legs and toes. You could end up with a family of weird and wonderful faces. Don’t forget we would love to see your muddy creations. 

Option 2: Potions and Wands
Have you ever wanted to become invisible or turn your parents into a frog? Would you like to shrink to the size of a snail or fly a broomstick? It’s time to practise your magic!
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!

🌈 Have a fantastic day! 🌈

Year 2

Tuesday 9th June

Happy Tuesday, Year 2! We are sure that you really enjoyed the Forest School activities yesterday. We wonder what sounds you heard when you were out and about? We wonder who collected lots of tiny treasure?

We’re going to start with Joe Wicks again – we wonder if he will use the spinner today?

Daily tasks

Maths – We are moving onto some more money-related work today. We will be focussing on finding the total, so adding different amounts of money together. Finding the video for today’s lesson is a little different. All you need to do is follow this link https://vimeo.com/425620182 After you have watched the video – click on here for the worksheet.  Finding the total   A top tips sheet is also attached to help you work through the problems. If you’re done, set yourself another challenge of making different amounts of money using different coins. For example, how many ways can I make 35p? Remember that you can only use coins that actually exist!

English – We hope that you enjoyed getting into the role of the boy from the film clip yesterday. On Wednesday and Thursday of this week, we are going to be writing a diary entry in role of the boy. Before we write the entry, we need to understand how diaries are written. Today you are going to read a diary with a checklist underneath. Read the diary through the first time just to enjoy it. Then the second time, read it and tick off on the list every time you see that feature. See the diary with the checklist by clicking here. Diary entry example PDF   As an extension activity, can you write down the different feelings you can find in the diary?

Phonics – 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.

Year 3

Year 3 Tuesday 9th June 

Morning all! What did you hear on your sound map? Mrs Mc has added hers to the post today (please excuse my poor drawing of birds – it’s not my forte 😀). It was nice sitting with the window open and just taking a little time out to work on my mindfulness from last week and to think about natural and background sounds that are going on around me without me really noticing! I hope you managed to get outside a little bit too.  

Today’s tasks: 

Maths-  This week we are going to be using Oak National Academy for our maths lessons (we used this site last week for the sound collector poem in English and it involves some video teaching, just like in White Rose Maths and some work for you to do). Find it here:  

https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-3/subjects/maths then scroll down to the section that says ‘Angles and Shape’. The first lesson is to identify and recognise angles. You can skip the introductory quiz as we didn’t use the Oak Academy last week (or you can do it if you fancy!) and click ‘next’ to go to the video. It’s Mr Etherton teaching you today and by the end of the lesson you should be able to identify and recognise angles as a property of a shape. First he’ll show you how to make an ANGLE DETECTOR – he uses a split pin (paper fastener) – don’t worry if you don’t have one – you can hold the card strips together. Do the shape quiz first then say the key words so you know these for the rest of the lesson. Listen carefully and follow the instructions Mr Etherton gives you and have fun finding angles in your house. Remember to pause the video when he gives you a task to do. The main activity worksheet is available if you click ‘next’ and Mr Etherton will go through the answers at the end part of the video. 

 

 

English–  The story this week has been inspired by a traditional Icelandic folktale. The names have been simplified to make it easier for you to read because the Icelandic alphabet is a bit different from ours. The story explains how some amazing rocks called ‘sea stacks’ were created. This story has been told many, many times over the years. We have looked at folktales from other cultures before and we loved ‘The Enchantress of the Sands’ so we’re sure you’ll like this one too 😊 It’s attached to your email and below for you to read (or there’s a link to listen to it too). 

English day 2 The Stone Trolls story   

In the story there are some words in bold. Today your task is to find out what those words mean. You can use the similar words clues at the bottom of the sheet (attached to your email and below) to help you or you can use a dictionary or the internet to help you.

Year 6

Morning Year 6! This afternoon we have some great Forest School activities especially if you love mud! 😊

To access your resources today for all of your learning you need to:

  1. Log into Teams
  2. Go to Files (at the top of the page)
  3. Select Class Materials
  4. Select SUMMER TERM SECOND HALF
  5. Select WEEK 2
  6. Select the subject (Maths, English, Guided Reading)
  7. Select the day – Tuesday

Maths:

Today we are reviewing our knowledge of converting miles and kilometres. 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 miles and kilometres PowerPoint with questions for you to complete in your red Maths book OR you can open the miles and kilometres Task pdf and print off the questions. When you have completed the task, open the miles and kilometres 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:

Now that we have had a practise at planning sections of a ‘finding tale’ in the style of Jumanji and the game we are preparing to write our own complete finding tale. Today you need to open Jumanji Day 7a and think really carefully about your plan. Where is it to be set? What could the object be? What happens when the object is found? Complete in your blue jotter. You are now going to add more detail to your plan. Open Jumanji Day 7b. It is called a ‘boxed up’ plan but it is basically a paragraph planner – each box is a new paragraph. Please complete in as much detail as possible as tomorrow we will be writing our tale.

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
