Nursery

Nursery – Monday 18th May  

Good morning Nursery! It’s Monday, so we hope you can join in with some of today’s activities. It’s History week throughout school, so we will be making some fun suggestions you might like to try at home.

Wakey wakey, rise and shine!

We like to wake up with nursery rhymes in school, so try singing these rhymes and do the actions.

Here is the link to some fun songs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2SowzZ7vOo

RWI Phonics:

Today’s set one sound is ‘ng’. Some of the sounds can get tricky, but simply try your best. Remember to use your name card daily and practice saying the sounds in it as well as tracing it with your finger and trying to write it.

YouTube Ruth Miskin Training website:

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

Maths activity:

It is a lovely day for a picnic, but a flapjack is missing! Is there a ‘snaffler’ on the loose or has ‘Three’ forgotten what Numberblocks do best? This short video will remind us how to count. After watching the video see if you can count by asking a grown to (look at the picture as an idea), draw numbers in a circle and find the amount of items to place inside of the circles. You can choose any number to count to.

REMEMBER TO USE YOUR POINTING FINGER TO COUNT SO YOU DON’T MISS ANY OR COUNT THE SAME THING TWICE – JUST LIKE WE DO IN NURSERY.

Link to Numberblocks 10:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08cr24d/numberblocks-series-1-how-to-count

History activity:

Talk to your grown up about all of the people you live with and other people who are important to you. Why are they special? What makes you special? Talk about the things you are all good at. Now for the fun: make a family tree using your hands. Ideally with paint or you could draw around hands with a pencil and colour it in using your own design.

How about finishing your day with a lovely story and a cuddle with your favourite toy.  We would love to see you, so post some photographs if you can.

Have a lovely day Nursery and have fun!

Reception

Reception – Monday 18th May

Good Morning Reception! We hope you’ve had a lovely weekend. This week is History week so you will be finding out all about the past. Watch out for the 3 o clock Facebook posts with some additional ideas to the ones below.

Phonics– Set 1 sounds are continuing and the sound of the day is: ng

Set 2 sound (repeated) is: oo ‘as in book’

An alternative activity could be to play phonic flash cards on Phonics in Bloom – https://www.phonicsbloom.com/uk/game/flash-cards?phase=2 or you could make up a rhyming string using ‘ng’ words. For example.

Ping -pong-long-tong

This week your tasks will be based on the story of ‘Superworm’. If you haven’t got a copy you can listen to a reading of the story here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Jnk3XApKBg

Writing – Today we would like you to make your own wormery. You will need a jar or a see-through container. Talk to you grown up about how you are going to make your wormery. Can you write a list of what you need to make sure you have everything?

When you have made your list and found your items, have fun making your wormery. We would love to see your pictures. Don’t forget to leave the worms something to eat like leaves or vegetable peelings and keep it damp.

Maths – Use your “Superworm” skills to make symmetrical art works. Explore what length your worm needs to be to make more complex patterns and the effects he makes! Over the past few weeks we have learned a lot about minibeasts. Can you continue our patterns and then make your own? Follow the link for more information.  https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Day-1-Superworm.pdf

History Week activities:

Look back at photographs of when you were younger and then look at yourself in a mirror. How have you changed? How do you look different now? Talk to your grown up about the people in your family. Who is the oldest? Who is the youngest? Draw pictures of the people in your family. You could even make a family tree like the one shown in the photograph. Remember to photograph your work and add to the comments.

Sending you all lots of smiles 😊

Year 1

Year 1 18th May
Happy Monday everyone! We hope you have had a lovely weekend spent with your families. This week is HISTORY week! We have lots of exciting things for you to do so stay tuned for our daily posts.

Today’s Meaningful May task is to hand-write a note to someone you love and send them a photo of it! Who could you write your note to?

Today’s tasks: 
Maths – 
This week, we are moving onto our new unit in Maths – measurement! Today, you are exploring and comparing length and height. Have you heard these words before? What things might you measure the length and height of?  

Today’s lesson is Summer Term – Week 5 – Lesson 1 (w/c 18th May). 
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! 

Lesson-1-Compare-lengths-and-heights

There are lots of practical ideas you could do with length and height, too! You could build towers and compare which is the tallest, you could collect objects in your house and order them from shortest to longest or tallest to shortest, and you could even get everyone in your house to line up in height order! If you are able to go on a walk, have a look at different buildings and vehicles. Which is tallest? Which vehicle is the longest?  

Extra challenge…

English – 
RWInc. Time!

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

This week’s text is one you will have heard before as we have read it together in Year 1! It’s ‘Room on the Broom’ by Julia Donaldson. As always, you can read the story at home or watch it here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0102qfj

In the story, the witch’s broom snaps in two! For your task today, we would like you to design a new and improved broom for the witch and her friends. Draw a picture of the broom and label the key features. Be as imaginative as you can and think about why you would add that feature. For example, you might want to make the broom as comfortable as possible for those long journeys so you could add a soft cushion and a blanket. 

Afternoon
History
History Starter Question – What’s your first memory? Who is the first person you remember?  

Today, we would like you to think about the timeline of…your family! First, find out when your family’s birthdays are in the year. Think about the day and month first (for example, 18th May). Work with your family to put your dates in order throughout the year – January to December. Challenge yourself to learn these dates off by heart! 

Next, can you find out the year that each person was born in? This might change your order! Together, order yourselves from oldest to youngest. This will help you put your dates into chronological order. You have made a timeline of when your family was born! 

Now, think of creative ways to represent your family timeline. You might want to organise your family into a photo, holding your pieces of paper? Or create models of each person, with their labels? Or create a poster using the information you have gathered? There are some ideas below. Think creatively and please post photos so that we can see!  

As an extra challenge, think about how the first Man landed on the Moon on 20th June 1969. Can you add this to your timeline maybe as a model or a picture of an astronaut with the date? Was anyone in your family born when this happened? How do you know from your timeline? 

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 hope you have a wonderful day!🌈

Year 2

Year 2     18th May

Happy Monday, Year 2! We cannot believe it that it’s the final week before half term – this half term has absolutely flown by. A huge thank you for all of your pictures, reading work and Times Table Rock Stars – we are two very proud teachers. You are all amazing.

Let’s wake up for the week with Joe Wicks’ PE lesson.

Maths – We are moving on to multiplication this week! We know that you are all confident with counting in 2s, 5s and 10s so you will be using these skills over the next few days. Today, you will be looking at using the multiplication symbol. Follow the link  https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ and click on ‘Summer Term – Week 5 (w/c 18th May)’ and then choose ‘Lesson 1 – using the multiplication symbol x.’ Once you have finished watching the video, open the worksheet, which is attached to the email version of this post and in the link here Lesson 1 – Multiplication sentences using the x symbol 2019. There is a guidance sheet attached to the email version of this post, also.

English – Monday is grammar day and we are going to be thinking about questions! If you need a reminder of how to form a question, take a look at this video https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/z2xdng8

Next, have a look at two unusual images and choose your favourite one. https://www.pobble365.com/moving-house/ or https://www.pobble365.com/jurassic-age

Once you’ve had a good look at your favourite image, we would like you to write down 5 questions, beginning with ‘how’ ‘why’ ‘where’ ‘when’ and ‘what.’ Don’t forget to finish your questions with a question mark!

Phonics – Read Write Inc daily lessons can be watched from 10.30am onwards everyday – click on 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. 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, we’d like you to look at the words below. You have to choose if the missing special friend is ‘au’ or ‘aw.’ Good luck!

Year 3

Year 3 Monday 18th May 

Happy Monday Year 3! Can you believe we are already into week 5 of the summer term? We are really missing you all and hope you are keeping safe and well. Well done 3C for winning last week’s Times Tables Rock Stars tournament!  Another one has been set for you and remember to keep reading and doing the Accelerated Reading quizzes. This week is History week, we hope you enjoy the activities we will be setting you. Please remember to keep sharing photos of all your work. We love seeing what you are doing! 

Today’s tasks: 

Maths https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ Summer Term – Week 3 (w/c 4th May) – Lesson One – Convert pounds and pence. The first three lessons this week are focusing on money.  We have already covered money this year so you should remember some of the learning. This will help you with these lessons. You know that 100 pennies are equal to one pound. Use this to have a go at the two lots of questions the man asks you to do in the first part of the video. Remember to pause the video when you are told to, to give you time to solve the answers before they are shown.  Then solve the first 4 questions in the activity and don’t worry if you find these tricky, you can watch the examples again to help you. The second part of the video focuses on adding up coins to find the totals. Again, you need to pause the video when you are told to and then do the rest of the questions in the activity.  

On Purple Mash https://www.purplemash.com/ we have set you a money activity in the 2Dos – ‘Money to £1 – d’ (Ned Goes Shopping). You need to help him to find the right coins to pay with. 

English – Read the full mystery story again from last week to remind yourself of the story. What clues helped you work out who had stolen the jewels? Jot them down in your book or on paper.  

Mystery story part 1 reading (1) Mystery story part 2 reading

Sometimes an author uses “red herrings” – these are false clues to make the reader think it is a different character. Talk about these questions with someone in your house. Which other character did you think may have committed the crime? What were the red herrings? 

The author has also planted clues to interest the reader. Find these phrases and talk about why they interest the reader and keep them guessing: 

  • …something curious… 
  • “That’s odd.” 
  • “What’s that hammering noise?” 
  • “Someone locked me in the store-room!” 
  • “Why would anyone take them?” 
  • “But that means… Oh, no! Quickly!” 
  • “Why would the thief steal these and throw them away?” 
  • Jamie nodded towards the beehive. “Protection,” he said. 

Task: use the picture below to help you retell the story. Jot down your ideas around the picture if you can print it or make a list on some paper or in your book. 

Week 2 Monday Picture

Afternoon 

History Starter Question – What’s your first memory? Who is the first person you remember?  

Today, we would like you to think about the timeline of…your family! First, find out when your family’s birthdays are in the year. Write down just the date and the month to start with and put them order throughout the year – January through to December. Take a photo! Challenge yourself to learn these dates off by heart.  

Next, can you find out the year that each person was born in? This might change your order! Together, order yourselves from oldest to youngest. This will help you put your dates into chronological order. You have made a timeline of when your family was born! 

Now, think of creative ways to represent your family timeline. You might want to organise your family into a photo, holding your pieces of paper? Or create models of each person, with their labels? Or a family tree, with the oldest person at the top branch? There are some ideas below. Think creatively and please post photos so that we can see!  

As an extra challenge, think about how a century is a period of 100 years. We can describe passages of time in this way. It is a bit confusing but any dates from 1900-1999 is the 20th century. Any dates from 2000 to now is the 21st century. Can you sort your family into centuries? Who was born in the 20th century? What about the 21st? Why won’t you think about the 19th century? 

Year 4

Year 4 – Monday 18th May

Welcome back Year 4! 😊

Did you all have a relaxing weekend with your family?
Well done to Year 5 on winning our Times Tables Rock Star tournament… better luck next time Year 4! We have decided not to set up a tournament this week, but we would still like you to go on TTRS, when you are able to. It is Miss Whaley’s favourite subject this week… History week! She can’t wait to see what is in store for us.

Join Miss Whaley and Miss Conway at 9am to complete the Joe Wicks workout.

Have you enjoyed ‘Bad Dad’ so far? What do you think might happen next? Tune in at 11am to find out. https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/

Today’s tasks:

Maths – Today, we are going back to our WhiteRose website to focus on division. We have already looked at this in school so this should be a great reminder incase you have forgotten. To begin, click on the following link and then make sure you select ‘Summer Term Week 3 w/c 4th May’. We will be following lesson 3 and recapping how to ‘Divide 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers’. First, watch the video clip which will remind you how to use your groups to divide your numbers. It would be a good idea for you to have a copy of the worksheet next to you, as the video will refer to the questions throughout. You could choose to print the worksheet or copy the questions into your blue book. There is also a section which shares the answers, so once you are finished you could then mark your own work. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

Be careful as some of your answers may have a remainder, remember a remainder is the number left, that cannot be shared into your groups. You might want to draw your groups in your book or use some items in your house to make your groups, just like we would with counters in school.

English – Today, we are going to finish our news report unit by writing our own report. Start off by looking at all the work you have already completed on news reports to remind yourself of the different tasks you have done. Then click on the link below to get started. First, it will ask you to complete a quiz, then it will to you to a short video clip to watch, which will start with your spelling quiz, the video clip will tell you when to pause to complete a task. After that, there are some slides that will take you through what you have just watched in the video clip and give you some examples of a structure, sentence openers and vocabulary you may wish to use in your news report, it will then show you a success criteria of things that you should include in your writing. To finish off it will ask you to take a final quiz. https://www.thenational.academy/year-4/english/news-report-write-a-news-report-year-4-wk3-5#slide-1

We would love to hear your news reports! Could you post a photograph in the comments below for us to read? Or you may wish to ask your grown up to record you reading your report and then post the video in the comments below… Remember to use a lovely loud and clear voice, just like you did during our rehearsals in school. We can’t wait to see or hear what you all write!

Afternoon tasks:

It is History week this week and Miss Jobey has some fantastic tasks planned for us; I hope you are all as excited as we are!

Year 5

Year 5 Monday 18th May

🌺Good Morning Year 5🌺 We hope you have had a lovely weekend – it is important to switch off and recharge. We hope you are ready for another week of home learning! Start the morning with a workout with Joe and then let’s see what the day brings!

Today’s Tasks

Maths

Today, we are revising our knowledge of adding and subtracting fractions. The link to the lesson is here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/ You will need to click on ‘Week 5, Lesson 1’ to access. You will see that the teacher uses the bar model method to help, and also some part, part whole models to help you visualise the fractions. In this lesson the denominators are the same – so most of you should find this fairly straightforward. Give the questions a try – they get harder as the worksheet progresses, with some missing number problems. As always – just give it your best try!

Challenge

Which is the smallest number? Eight thousand, one hundred and 6  Or   8,601 or 6,810

What is 8.98 + 11.24?

Use the long method to try: 1822 x 3  (Take your time and use a place holder zero!)

What are the next 5 fractions in this sequence? 2/8, 4/4 , 6/8 __, __ , __ ,  __ (try and write the improper fractions as mixed numbers if you can).

 

English

In today’s lesson, Mrs Blake will look at diary entries with you all today as by the end of the week, you will be writing your own diary. You will start investigating diary entries by looking at Dork Diaries for key features. You will work on your inference skills today (reading between the lines) – something you are all great at. You can access the lesson here: https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/diary-entry-reading-comprehension-inference-year-5-wk4-1#slide-2

Remember to make a note of your ‘word of the day’ so by Friday you have a list 😊. Mrs Blake will talk you through how to find evidence from the text and then you will have a go yourself. Answer as many, or as few, questions as you can – there is no pressure at all. She will talk through the answers when you resume the video.

Your spellings this week will focus on the suffix -ible so give those a practise too.
