Nursery

Nursery – Wednesday 17th June  

Good morning Nursery and happy Wednesday to you all. We hope you can join in with some of today’s activities. Remember, you’re welcome to let us know how you have been getting on by putting a photograph or video in the comments section. How are your independent skills coming along? Getting dressed, pouring water, setting the table or writing your name…? We would love to know.

RWI Phonics:

Today’s sound is ‘u’. Enjoy learning and have fun with Fred!

YouTube Ruth Miskin Training website:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

Why not try blending the sounds we have learned so that you can read words.  Here is a link to show how we would learn this in class but don’t worry if you just want to learn the sounds for now.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEzfpod5w_Q

Look at the picture and play a game of ‘memory’.

Write letters (m,a,s,t,p,i,n,d,) or letters from your name (your grown-up will help you decide how many or which ones) onto paper plates or small pieces of paper if you prefer. Lay out your letters face down and each time you have a matching pair you keep the plates.  Celebrate with each match and good luck! I wonder who will have the most.

Maths activity – domino line-up:

Dominoes are little gems from maths heaven and are a great way to teach children to subitize numbers (as we learned yesterday) – that rapid ability to see a group of objects and instantly know how many without counting it.  On the post-it notes, write the numbers 1-12 (check your dominoes to see the range of numbers you need to do). Each number is composed of adding both sides of the domino together. Set all the dominoes out and your grown-up will count the dots with you. Now place the domino next to the number it represents.

Just for fun: Colour match

Learning colours is important. This colour scavenger hunt is a fun way to do this, but many of you may already know them so as a challenge let’s talk about light and dark colours and different shades.  There will be many shades of blues and greens around. What will you discover? Have you seen many rainbows lately? Look at the diagram to see how you can do this activity by matching the colours on some paper with objects around you home or during a walk. 😊

Today’s music focus: Melody & Pitch

Melody is the tune. It’s the part of the music that you often find yourself singing along with. Pitch is how high or low a note sounds. A melody is made up of high and low pitched notes played one after the other. Catchy melodies often repeat the same series of notes over and over. Watch this video to find out more:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z7xsf4j

A good melody is memorable and really sticks in your head. This is one that your grown-ups will remember: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ho7796-au8U.  Listen to the song and see if you can remember the basic melody (it is in the chorus).

What are your favourite songs? Can you sing us some of the chorus? We might even be able to guess the song if you record your singing for us.

Story time: 

Put your feet up and choose your favourite story or selection of music and sing your teddies your favourite songs.

Have a great Wednesday children, from all of your Nursery teachers. Keep smiling and play, play, play!  😊

 

Reception

Reception Wednesday 17th June  

Good morning Reception. Wow, what a busy day you had yesterday! We loved reading your comments and seeing your photographs. We’re glad you enjoyed listening to the music and it was lovely to see so many of you joining in with Mr Sutherland’s singing assembly. Before we find out what is in store today, Mrs Walton has a little message for you all…

 

Hi, boys and girls. I hope you are well and enjoying musicals week. I have been doing lots of busy jobs at home and hoping the weather will get better so that we can get out and about a bit more. I love seeing what you have been up to and your lovely photos on Facebook. I miss you so much and can’t wait to see you again. Love Mrs Walton. Xx

 

Phonics:

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

Set 2 sound (repeated) is: ay – restarts

 

‘Read and Hold a sentence 1’ will continue today. We usually complete these style activities as part of our RWI lessons. They encourage reading and writing practice for children reading set 1 sounds confidently and learning Set 2 sounds.

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

 

An alternative activity could be to chalk your sounds onto the ground or a wall and use a spray water bottle to spray the sounds away. Remember to say the rhymes as you write the sounds and say the sound as you spray them away. You could always use a paint brush and a pot of water if you don’t have a water spray bottle.

 

Writing & Maths 

Writing and Maths are linked today!

Can you remember what Princess Mirror-Belle uses in the bath to make a cure for the chicken/dragon pox? Maybe you would like to make your own cure? We know you love to make potions in the water tray, and we saw some great potions last week! What will you add to your cure? We would like to write the recipe that you used to make your cure in case your friends want to make the same one. You could add some things from outside that you can find like petals that have fallen off or leaves that you find. Follow the link for Maths to give you some ideas. https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Day-3-Princess-Mirror-Belle.pdf We would love to see pictures of your cure of what you have put together.

After, can you find the King and Queen in this next unusual castle? There is 1 king and queen but there might be more than 1 Prince and Princess. They all will be wearing a crown! How many can you find?

 

Music week activities:

Music focus: Melody & Pitch

Melody is the tune. It’s the part of the music that you often find yourself singing along with.

Pitch is how high or low a note sounds. A melody is made up of high and low pitched notes played one after the other. Catchy melodies often repeat the same series of notes over and over. Watch this video to find out more:

Have a lovely day and we look forward to seeing what you get up to and listening to your singing (we’ve missing singing with you all).

Mrs Cassidy and Miss Cavanagh 😊

 

 

Year 1

Hi Year 1! We hope you enjoyed the assembly yesterday! It was so lovely to be all back together again! 💛💙

Today’s tasks: 
Maths – 
Today, we are going to be comparing objects to 50. The video can be found here: https://vimeo.com/428005936
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 objects within 50

You can use objects around the house to keep practising the language of comparison during the day! 

If your child finds this tricky, why not work practically with numbers up to 20? Try counting out objects to make numbers within 20 and comparing them.

Extra challenge

We’d love to see any photos of you doing your Maths work at home! 😊 

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 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.

How did you get on with your story retell yesterday? 🧸 We would love to see your story maps
https://www.talk4writing.com/home-school-units/ 
https://soundcloud.com/talkforwriting/brian/s-Tdy7BXbHz4i

Task 1: Brian Bear forgot to pack his picnic rug for the picnic. Your first task today is to design a new rug for him to enjoy with his friends. There are some examples to help you on page 12. Be as creative as you like – you could have spots, stripes, zig zag patterns, blue, yellow, or rainbow colours! 🌈 There is space on page 12 for you to draw your rug or you may want to use a different piece of paper. Some of you may even want to use paint or crayons!

Task 2: When Curtis, Bertha and Gertie got home, they found three thank you letters pinned on their door. You can see the letter from the troop of monkeys on page 13 🐒. Can you write a thank you letter to Curtis, Bertha and Gertie from the swarm of bees or from the skinny, frightened mice for sharing their food? 🍽️

Afternoon
🎵 Music focus: Melody & Pitch 🎵
Melody is the tune. It’s the part of the music that you often find yourself singing along with.

Pitch is how high or low a note sounds. A melody is made up of high and low pitched notes played one after the other. Catchy melodies often repeat the same series of notes over and over. Watch this video to find out more:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z7xsf4j

Your turn – research some melodies that you like for inspiration and why not try to create your very own melody about our school or something that you like? Remember to post your song videos in the comments section! We know we have some wonderful musicians in Year 1! 

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!

🌈 Have a wonderful Wednesday!🌈

Year 2

Wednesday 17th June

Good morning, Year 2! We are half way through the week already. We hope you enjoyed the assembly with Mr Sutherland yesterday. We were there with you, singing along and we loved seeing your names pop up! We do miss you! Well done for your hard work yesterday, here is what today has in store for you.

We are going to wake up with Joe Wicks again today. How active we all are!

Daily tasks

Maths – How did you get on yesterday with counting faces and edges of 3D shapes? Today we are going to focus on counting vertices. You may want to watch the video from yesterday again (count faces, edges and vertices) starting from 3 minutes and 30 seconds, follow this link. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ When you have finished have a go at completing the last two pages of the worksheets ‘count vertices on 3D shapes’ we’ve added them here again Lesson 2 – Count faces, edges and vertices on 3D shapes   . After you have completed the worksheets, we would like you to show off your knowledge of 3D shapes by writing a shape riddle for us to solve. Can you guess which 3D shape this is?

I have 5 flat faces

I have 5 vertices

I have 8 edges

What am I?

Please post pictures of your riddles in the comments so we can solve them.

English – We hope you have enjoyed learning with Miss Emms over the last two days, hopefully we will see her again soon. I bet you are an expert now at identifying adverbs of time and adverbs of manner. Today we are going to stick with our work on instructions. We have a set of instructions for you about how to make a pizza but unfortunately, they are jumbled up! Your first job is to put them in order. If you are able to print off the worksheet, then you can cut them up and stick them down in order. If you can’t print the sheet off then maybe a grown up could copy them onto some strips of paper for you to order. Have you noticed they don’t have numbers? You might want to add these. Oh dear, have you noticed these instructions are not very good? They don’t have adverbs of time or any adverbs of manner, I bet you can help! Choose 3 instructions and copy them out, adding an adverb of time and an adverb of manner to each one. Click here for the worksheet.    jumbled_pizza_instructions

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.

Then watch the video 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

Music – We have looked at lots of new words this week: rhythm, pulse, tempo and duration! Today our focus is on another two new words: melody and pitch.

Melody is the tune. It’s the part of the music that you often find yourself singing along with.

Pitch is how high or low a note sounds.

A melody is made up of high-pitched and low-pitched notes played one after the other. Catchy melodies often repeat the same series of notes over and over. This is normally the part that sticks in your head when you listen to a song!

Watch this video to find out more:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z7xsf4j

Activity one: A good melody is memorable and really sticks in your head. This is one that your grown-ups will remember: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ho7796-au8U.  Listen to the song and see if you can remember the basic melody (it is in the chorus).

Activity two: It’s your turn! Research some melodies that you like for inspiration and why not try to create your very own melody about our school or something that you like?  Remember to post your song videos in the comments section!

Activity three: Why not make your own melody on a piano? Follow a link to play a piano online and create your own melody.

https://virtualpiano.net/   (best on a computer) or https://www.musica.com>piano  or google  ‘virtual piano’.

Reading – Take 15 minutes to curl up somewhere in your house (you might have somewhere that you think of as your reading den) and read today. It could be a new book or a book that you have read many times before. It all helps your reading! We have been known to read books over and over and over again, until they almost fall apart! If you’ve been reading along with ‘The Boy who Grew Dragons,’ then chapter three is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvK4PSkDNJU&list=PLd5OvpigUuUH6xXqFd8QfUQdD4RT1uFYr&index=5

We would love to hear and see your own melodies! It would be such a treat. Please add a video to the comments on our facebook post. Have a wonderful Wednesday!  😊

From Mrs Bainbridge and Miss Jobey

Year 3

Year 3 Wednesday 17TH June

Welcome to Wednesday year 3! Wasn’t Mr Sutherland’s assembly yesterday just gorgeous?! I couldn’t sing for crying at one point because we miss you all so much! Thanks for the musical photos so far – keep them coming! Anyway, for today I thought I’d let you in on one of my most favourite songs ever – it’s from The Muppets Movie, sung by Kermit the Frog (I LOVE the Muppets) and it’s called ‘The Rainbow Connection’. It’s a beautiful song and the words are written on the back of my decoration on our Dunston Hill message tree by school’s bottom gates – see if you can find it 😊Mrs Mc x

Today’s tasks:

Maths - Click onto https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year3/subjects/maths then scroll down to the section that says ‘Angles and Shape’ and go to lesson 7 – To draw perpendicular lines. Miss Brinkworth will explain at the beginning of the lesson the things you will need. Then start the lesson with the warmup activity – this is a little revision from previous lessons. Today there are quite a lot of star words, please remember to repeat these and don’t worry if you don’t know them all, you will by the end of the lesson. Watch the video carefully and pause it when you are told to, for you to have a look for horizontal and vertical lines. Do the independent activity when Miss Brinkworth tells you to, she will help you with Part A and return to the video when you have finished, for the answers. Then end today’s lesson with the knowledge quiz.

English – Now you’ve planned your story, it’s time to start writing it! Use your plan and the original story from last week (attached again in case you can’t find it) to help start you off. If you like, you can use the starter paragraph and fill in the blanks from the sheet in today’s email and below. There are some reminders on the attachment too. Don’t worry if you don’t get it finished today – try to take your time so it sounds right 😊

When you have completed the task, open the ‘Substitution’ answers pdf and self-assess.

 

English:

Yesterday, we created our own list poems based on our ideas that we had generated using place names, abstract nouns and alliteration. Today, we are looking at a model poem which Pi Corbett has written called, The Cave of Curiosity – Task 6 Can you notice why it is called a repetition poem? Please read the poem through – out loud – to hear the sounds he has created in the lines and how they join as stanzas. Remember stanzas are like paragraphs in poetry. You then need to respond to the questions in your blue jotter.

 

Reading:

This week we have five more short texts for you to choose from. This week they all have a Geography theme ( there is even the opportunity to make your own Mexican Sugar Skull!)

Nurture and Inclusion

Wellbeing Wednesday – 17th June 💧🙌
Welcome to Week 6 of Wellbeing Wednesday’s with Mrs Cox and Miss Tuart – this week’s theme is ‘hygiene’.
Are you ready to make a big splash?💦
Everybody can help to stop/slow down the spread of Covid19 – today and everyday, let’s wash the virus away by washing our hands with soap and water. Learn how to protect yourself and others by watching a short video about hand washing:
Mrs Cox and Miss Tuart have been Hygiene Heroes and here’s how you could be one too:
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT – maintain positive hygiene behaviour and make handwashing a habit!
BE A HERO – continue to encourage positive hygiene in your family home.
SPREAD THE WORD –  NOT GERMS – tell others how handwashing with soap helps ensure a brighter future.We would love you to post some photos of you being a Hygiene Hero or even a video of you making up a song that you can wash your hands to. You could change the lyrics to your favourite song just like Mrs Donaldson did
– we would love to hear if you do!

For all the scientists out there, here is an amazing pepper and soap experiment – it shows you why washing your hands is so important: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/germs-experiment

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.

#happyhandwashing – love, Mrs Cox and Miss Tuart 💧🙌💦❤️
