Good morning Reception. We hope you enjoyed baking yesterday and enjoy the activities today. Tomorrow a new ‘bubble’ of children will be in school so we look forward to you in the morning. Those of you who are home, please continue to share your super work with us. We love seeing what you get up to.

Phonics:

Set 1 sounds are repeating and the sound of the day is: w

Please take a look on the RWI home learning You Tube link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

An alternative activity:

See if you can find some stones around the garden and write sounds on them. What words can you make with the stones? Are they real words or are they Alien words?

Writing

Earlier in the week for Maths we looked at what was healthy and what was unhealthy. Can you write a sentence about why they are healthy or unhealthy for two of the items that you found?

Maths 

Today Oliver and his Grandad need some help. They have forgotten how many vegetables they have planted. Follow the link and see if you can add the vegetables together. There are 10 frames to help you. See if you can write the number sentences to match. https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Day-3-Olivers-Vegetables.pdf

Oliver has sorted some of his fruit and vegetables into hoops, can you see why he put certain ones together. Talk to your grown up about the pictures and see if you can think why they are together.

Year 1

Year 1 Wednesday 1st July
🌞 Good morning, Year 1! 🌞 How are you? Let’s see what we have in store for you today… 

Today’s tasks:  

Maths –  
Today, we are going to be recognising notes. Here is today’s lesson:
Summer Term – Week 10 (w/c 29th June) – Lesson 3
You need to click the video that says ‘Lesson 3 – Recognising notes
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ 

Just like yesterday, it would be great if you had some notes at home so that you can familiarise yourself with the look and feel of the money. Today’s lesson will be similar to yesterday’s lesson – recognising coins. Start by looking closely at the notes and see if you can notice any similarities/differences. 
As always, 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.
Y1-Summer-Block-5-D2-Recognising-notes-2020

Extra Challenge
If you have completed the worksheets and want an extra challenge, try the challenge question. Who is correct, Teddy or Eva? Explain your reasoning. We would love to see your work in the comments below 😊

English –  RWInc. Time!
As of 1st June, all speed sounds lessons are available from 9.30am. Those children in Set 2 and Set 3 groups have new words for reading. 
All sets 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. 

 This week’s story is……. ‘Sharing a Shell’ by Julia Donaldson 
If you don’t have the story at home, you can watch it on YouTube:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpJumAZx1t8 

Are you enjoying the story? 

Today’s task: In the story, the hermit crab shares his home with his friends. Who do you share your home with? Can you draw a picture of your home and write about what you like to do? For example, you might draw a picture of your home and write something like ‘This is my home. I love to play on the swings in the garden and splash around in my paddling pool’. Again, you can do this as creatively as you like, pencils, paint, anything you like! You could even use the paint pens on ‘Purple Mash’. 
We would love to see your work! 

Afternoon-
It’s Talent Week! 
Today’s talents are circus and sports skills! 

Option 1 – Ever dreamed of performing at the Circus?  What about juggling or learning to hula hoop?  Now is your chance as this afternoon we would like you to learn a new circus skill.  Below there is a list of tutorials which will help you to create your own juggling balls, learn how to juggle, and practise hula hooping.
This video will help you to juggle 2 balls before moving onto 3. If you don’t have scarfs you can skip the first part – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxzSHRbLAx4

Reading-
Reading is an excellent way to help you to relax, as well as being 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 hope you are well, keep smiling! 🌈

Year 2

Wednesday 1st July

Happy first day of July, Year 2! Where did the month of June go? We cannot believe it! With just a few weeks left of term, we want to tell you how proud of you all that we are. We cannot wait to see lots of you (hopefully) on Monday 6th July for our goodbye day!

Let’s wake up today with some cosmic yoga. This video is really appropriate at the moment! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rymXdOwW68

Daily tasks –

Maths – Following on from your work yesterday that was all about measuring in grams, our work today will follow a similar pattern and we will be measuring in kilograms. Kilograms is another unit of measure, used to measure the mass of items. Kilograms are used to measure larger masses than grams. 1 gram is much lighter than 1 kilogram. In fact, the kilo part of kilograms means 1,000 so 1 kilogram is the same as 1,000 grams.

1 kg = 1,000g

Follow this link https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ and click on ‘Summer Term – Week 10 (w/c 29th July)’ and then ‘Lesson 2 – measure mass in kilograms.’ Your worksheet and top tips sheets are attached here Lesson 2 – Measure mass in kilograms and Top tips for measuring kilograms. You will be using very similar skills to yesterday but you might want to take a look at the top tips sheets to help you complete some of the problems on your worksheet. Good luck!

English –Today, we would like you to write your story. Use your plan that you created yesterday and please feel free to magpie as many ideas from the story you read on Monday (which we have attached again here The Elves and the Shoemaker). Obviously, your characters will be different. Here is a checklist for what should be included in your story.

  • Begin your story with ‘Once upon a time’
  • Introduce the characters in the story and describe them
  • Write why the character needs help and how the elves help out
  • Write about what the elves get in return
  • In your ending, write about what happened to the elves
  • End your story with ‘They all lived happily ever after’

As always, please remember to use different types of sentences and punctuation marks. Also remember to use descriptive vocabulary to make your writing interesting. We can’t wait to read your stories so please share these with us.

Phonics – All phonics videos can be viewed from 10.30am by following this link:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

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 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.

Afternoon –

Today, our Talent Show week activity is based on active skills, which we know a lot of you will love.

Option 1 – Roll up, roll up! Ever dreamed of performing at the Circus?  What about juggling or learning to hula hoop?  Now is your chance as this afternoon we would like you to learn a new circus skill.  Below there is a list of tutorials which will help you to create your own juggling balls, learn how to juggle, and practise hula hooping.

Option 2 – Why not practise a new sport or learn a new sports skill? We would like you to think back to P.E week and the many sports which we looked at during this week.  What is your favourite sport?  Is there a new sport that you would like to have a go at? This afternoon is your chance to learn a new sports skill and impress your family/friends by sending them a photograph or a video clip.

There are so many other sports skills to choose from and we are sure that you will have some fabulous ideas already.  Is there someone in your family that could teach you a new skill? Please send us a photograph or a short video clip to show off your new skills!

Watch out for our 3pm post, too. Little Kickers have a challenge for you!

Reading – After all of the exercise you have done this afternoon, we are sure that you must be ready for a bit of a rest! Find some space outside and spend 15 minutes enjoying a book! It might be a non-fiction book, all about your favourite sport, or maybe a story that is set at the circus! Remember that you can sound out new words and you could use a dictionary to look up the meanings of any new words.

Here is the link for chapter 12 of ‘The Boy who Grew Dragons’ – we hope that you’re enjoying this story! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_YiPwt34F0&list=PLd5OvpigUuUH6xXqFd8QfUQdD4RT1uFYr&index=15

We also loved this tutorial for how to draw a super cute Puffling – take a look here https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/

Year 3 Wednesday 1st July 

Welcome to Wednesday year 3! We hope you are enjoying Talent Week so far and making some great creations.  If you would like to get active and start your day with some PE, Joe Wick starts at 9am https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFKf4X0pyKs. 

Today’s tasks:  

Maths  Click onto the link https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Y3-Week-7-Alternative-Plan.pd  and go to the second lesson – Equivalent lengths (m and cm)Today you will be looking at equivalent lengths, remember equivalent means equal and the key fact you will need to remember for this session is 100cm is equal to 1m. Pause the video when you are told to do so, for you to have a go at the questions. Once you have watched the video, complete the questions in the activity which are attached in your email and also on our website post. Remember you can watch the examples again if you need a little more help! 

Lesson 2 – Equivalent lengths – m and cm 2019 

English– Today’s the day you get to write your information text (a non-chronological report) about trolls as the expert. Use the model text from last week and your plan from yesterday to draft and edit your new information on trolls. Remember to use all the grammar skills you’ve learnt in the last week and a half to help you. Some handy hints (included in today’s attachment): 

  • give the reader a picture in their head by using adjectives to describe the features of your troll; 
  • build up a picture for the reader using a sentence of 3 to describe your troll; 
  • link your ideas by using adverbs at the start of your sentences to tell the reader you are adding on information 
  • engage your reader by using adverbs of emotion at the start of a sentence 
  • drop-in extra information for the reader by using a relative clause starting with who. 

Don’t worry if you don’t get it finished today! Take your time and check it and edit it as you go.

Year 4 – Wednesday 1st July 

Happy Wednesday you lot!  What did you decide to bake yesterday?  Don’t worry if you did not get the chance to make something yesterday, you could always catch up at some other point this week 😊 All of your morning activities will be shared on Teams and you can find our afternoon tasks below.  

9am – ‘Morning Register’.  Please remember to say good morning on Teams so we know that you are ready to learn.  Joe Wicks is live again today and has a new workout for you all to join in with, you could complete this before we post your Maths task.

9:30-10:30 – Maths
Today we will be moving on to interpreting charts.  A few weeks ago, we briefly looked at different types of charts, but this morning we will be answering some challenging questions.  Remember to watch Miss Whaley’s video first and then the video on White Rose Maths, before completing the worksheet.  You could choose to print the worksheet out or answer the questions in your Maths book.  If you are having trouble accessing Teams, you can complete the White Rose Hub activity by clicking on the following link and then selecting ‘Summer Term – Week 10 (W/c 29th June)’ and watching the video under ‘Lesson 1 – Interpret charts’.   We have also attached the worksheet to our email.   We will post the Maths answers in the Teams chat at 10.25am.
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

10:30-11:00 – Break time
You can use this time to finish off your Maths work, or to take a break and have a snack before English.  We will still be online if you need any help.

11:00-12:00 – English
Our lesson today will have a SPaG focus and we will be exploring a range of pronouns to make our writing sound more exciting.  This is something which we have not yet looked at, but we would have done if we were in school.  A pronoun is a word used to replace a noun and remember a noun is a word that represents a person, place, thing or idea.  You will find out more information when the lesson begins 😊 Follow the instructions on Teams to access the lesson and remember, you must watch Miss Conway’s video before watching the video on Oak National Academy.  Once you have watched the video and answered the questions, you can skip to the end to mark your answers.  If you are having trouble accessing Teams, you can compete the Oak National Academy part of the lesson by clicking on the link below:

Year 6

Good Morning Year 6! You are all working on-line today and Miss Parkin and Miss Reay are planning your work for in class and on-line for next week. 💙💛

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 5
  6. Select the subject (Maths, English, Guided Reading)
  7. Select the day – Wednesday

 

Maths:

Today we are going to begin as we do in class, with Arithmetic. Open the Flashback and complete the questions in your red maths book, the ANSWERS are also attached to self-assess your work and make any necessary corrections.

For the main lesson, we are revising how we add and subtract fractions. 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 informative video for you to watch using the following link: https://vimeo.com/413669158

which will help you complete today’s task. You can access the task by either opening the ‘add and subtract fractions’ PowerPoint and completing the questions in your red maths book OR you can open the ‘add and subtract fractions’ task pdf and print off the questions. When you have completed the task, open the ‘add and subtract fractions’ answers pdf and self-assess

 

English:

This week is SPaG week! There are 5 tasks for you to choose from. If you are in school you only need to complete 3 day’s worth of tasks – you can choose from any of the days. These are all SPaG areas you have covered in school before – great revision ready for secondary school! Please use your blue jotter to record your work 😊

Day 1 – Select the correct relative pronoun to create sentences with relative clauses. The instructions and an example are on the sheet. Please don’t forget to use a comma!

Day 2 – Recognising non-standard English. Look at the verbs to help you for this activity. For example: ‘I done my homework’ is non-standard English. It should be either, ‘I have done my homework.’ or ‘I did my homework.’

Day 3 – Determiners. A determiner comes before a noun and tells you something about the noun. For example: the number of something or who owns something. E.g ‘There were thirty children.’ Thirty is the determiner as it tells us how many children. ‘Our classroom was stifling hot.’ Our is the determiner.

Day 4 – Prepositions. There are 3 types of preposition: those that tell us the time something happened e.g before or at noon, those that tell us where something is e.g behind or under and those that are causal e.g because of or due to the fact. There are three activities to complete today and the answers are on the final sheet. If you would like to challenge yourself miss our activity 2 and only do 1 and 3.

Day 5 – Semi-colons. A semi colon is used to join to main clauses together that are linked to each other. A semi colon can often replace a conjunction. For example: ‘Mrs Moorhead likes dogs and she has one called Lola.’ We replace ‘and’ with a semi colon. ‘Mrs Moorhead likes dogs; she has one called Lola.’

 

Reading:

**Remember that a recording of Miss Parkin and Miss Reay reading Chapter 8 and 9 of ‘A boy called Hope’ are also saved in our Guided Reading File for you to enjoy ready to read Chapter 10 and 11 if you are in school this week **

Additionally this week we have the following texts to choose from and we encourage you to answer the comprehension questions too. Remember the answers are on the last page. This week’s theme is Chocolate – YUM!

  • Melting Chocolate
  • Droolz Delivers New Delight
  • Aztec Chocolate
  • Bournville
  • Wish Bar

Remember you can always use your time to work on Reading Plus too!

 

Afternoon: Talent week!

Today we would like to focus on circus or sports skills…

Option 1 – Ever dreamed of performing at the Circus?  What about juggling or learning to hula hoop?  Now is your chance as this afternoon we would like you to learn a new circus skill.  Below there is a list of tutorials which will help you to create your own juggling balls, learn how to juggle, and practise hula hooping.

You could research different circus skills for children, or you might even think of your own!  Think about films which involve a circus, for instance, The Greatest Showman… What was your favourite act?

Nurture and Inclusion

Wellbeing Wednesday – 1st July 

Welcome to Week 8 of Wellbeing Wednesday’s with Mrs Cox and Miss Tuart – this week’s theme is ‘sleep’.

Mrs Cox and Miss Tuart always try and have a good night’s sleep. Sleep is as important to our bodies as eating, drinking and breathing, and is vital for maintaining good mental and physical health.

A well-rested brain can solve problems, learn new information and enjoy the day a lot more than a tired brain.

Benefits of a good night’s sleep:

  • fosters creativity
  • helps you to concentrate on tasks for longer
  • improves problem-solving ability
  • supports with making positive decisions
  • helps you to learn and remember new things
  • gives you more energy during the day
  • can help to create and maintain good relations with others

Here are some sleeping tips from Miss Tuart and Mrs Cox:

    1. Set up a bedtime routine
    2. Relax before bedtime
    3. Keep regular sleep and wake times
    4. Keep naps early and short
    5. Feel safe at night time
    6. Check the noise and light in your bedroom
    7. Avoid screen time in the bedroom
    8. Eat a balanced diet
    9. Get plenty of natural light in the day
    10. Avoid caffeine

If Miss Tuart is having trouble falling asleep, she uses breathing exercises – this involves regulating your breath — counting breaths, for example — and eventually slowing your breathing down a bit, which signals to the body that it’s time for sleep.

Mrs Cox falls asleep by using mindful body scanning – as you lie on your bed, you’ll notice your breath and the places where your body is touching your bed. Then, starting at the toes, you can think of “switching off” each part of your body, part by part.

Don’t forget Mrs Cox is in school today and is available to take calls from parents/carers – please use this if you would like any advice, support or even a friendly voice to chat to. Similarly, please be assured that you can contact school any day of the week – we are always here to talk.
