Nursery

Nursery – Thursday 21st May  

Good morning Nursery and hello Thursday. What an amazing day of sunny weather we had. We hope you managed to make the most of it and hopefully today is warm too!


Wakey wakey, rise and shine!

Mike and Muttnik on the moon does some Cosmic Yoga.  Join Mike the Cosmic Space Monkey as we search for his best friend Muttnik, Astro Dog. A story about looking out for our friends – and what you should do if you get lost.

RWI Phonics:

Today’s set one sound is ‘a’. The sounds have been repeated which is a great way to consolidate and practice some of the sounds we have covered in Nursery.  I’m sure you will love joining in!

YouTube Ruth Miskin Training website:

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

Maths activity – measuring hands and feet (smell alert!):

Set out pieces of paper, pens, and cubes (LEGO or small blocks work well or even cheerios)

Take turns tracing your hands, and feet onto the paper with a little grown-up help. Practice writing your name inside and feel free to colour and decorate your feet and hands. You certainly can explore all avenues of early learning, not just maths.

Starting at the bottom of each foot or hand, carefully line up the LEGO or cheerios until you get to the highest point. Count the cheerios or LEGO and see who has the most. What does this tell you? (No, not that someone has the smelliest feet!)

History activity:

Today, we are going to make a memory box for you to keep all of your ‘lockdown’ treasures. It’s really simple and all you need is a card box or anything you can store things in.  A plain box works well because you can decorate it however you like. Use all of your pens and stickers to make your box special. Ask your grown-up to print some photographs of your busy days. Similar to the ones you have been posting in the comments box. You may like to draw a picture or put things you have made inside of your box. Write yourself a message. Put the drawings of your feet and hands from today’s maths activity inside.

The fun part is hiding your box in a special place (some people choose to dig a hole in the ground and put the box inside and call them ‘time capsules’). In time to come you can dig your box up again and look inside which will remind you of what you did when school was closed. Look at the hands and feet you drew around and you can see how much you have grown.

We would be delighted to see your photographs whether that is you joining in with today’s activities or just you being you!😊

Have a lovely day Nursery and have safe fun in the sun!

 

Reception

Reception – Thursday 21st May

Good morning Reception. It was lovely to see you doing your busy jobs yesterday! We hope you had plenty of fun in the sun too as it was such a beautiful day!

Today’s activities:

Phonics: Set one sound of the say is: a

Set two sound of the day is: air

An alternative activity could be to choose some different resources to create the written sounds. You could pick daisies form the garden and place them in the shape of an ‘a’ or ‘air’. If you’re inside today what could you use to create the letter sounds?

Writing and Maths: Today your writing and Maths will be linked together and you might need to go through your recycling bin. Can you create your own yucky supermarket by labelling tins or jars of mini beasts? Who will be in yours and how many? As a challenge you could price your tins and jars and then go shopping. I wonder what you’re going to have for tea tonight?  https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Day-4-Superworm.pdf

History week activities:

Have a look at the pictures we have added to this post. What are the pictures of? When do you think the toys are from? How are they the same or different from your toys now? Talk to your grown up about the toys they used to play with. You might even be able to talk to a grandparent about what their favourite toy was. Please let us know what your favourite toy is now – you could even draw a picture of it or photograph it. This might come in useful for tomorrow too.

Have a lovely day,

Mrs Cassidy and Miss Cavanagh

Year 1

Year 1 Thursday 21st May
Good Morning Year 1! How are you today? We hope you enjoyed some of the sunny weather we had yesterday! 🌞

Today’s tasks: 
Maths – 
Today, we are still looking at measures, but moving onto mass and weight. Some of you will remember doing this just before we left school in March! We used the balancing scales to measure how heavy or light things were.

Today’s lesson is Summer Term – Week 5 – Lesson 4 (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! There are images on Facebook and the PDF is on the website and in the email sent to you. 
Lesson-4-Introduce-weight-and-mass

I wonder if you could collect different objects, either in your house or on your walk (pine cones, stones etc.), and try and order them from lightest to heaviest, or heaviest to lightest. 

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 

We are delighted so many of you are enjoying this week’s story, ‘Room on the Broom’.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0102qfj 

On Tuesday, you wrote a spell for the witch to use to make her new broom. Today, we would like you to create a potion that the witch can use. What ingredients would be needed to make it? Write a recipe for your potion. You could have some rotten eyeballs or some smelly green slime, use your imagination!

Remember, in a recipe it is important to use adverbs of time (first, second, then, after that) and verbs (mix, pour, chop), as well as your interesting adjectivesWe have attached a template that you can print, or feel free to use paper. 

Afternoon
History
We hope you are enjoying History Week and finding out more about the past!

Starter discussion question – Why do some people have statues and memorials made about them? Why does everyone not have one?   

Your task – 
Sources are objects that remain from a period of time in the past. For example, an astronaut suit used by Neil Armstrong in 1969 or a medicine bottle used by Florence Nightingale in 1853 would be sources. Looking at sources from the past is a great way to learn about what life was like in the past. What did the people then use, wear or look after? 

This image is a source of evidence from the past. What do you think this could be? What would it have been used for?

This is a candlestick telephone! They were around 100 years ago. Does it look like the phone you have in your house? What is similar? What is different?

Now that you have looked at the source and discussed it, here are your tasks: 

Option 1 – Replicate a source 
Artefacts can be very old and very precious because they cannot be replaced. They are mostly kept behind glass, in a museum.  Can you make a 3D replica of the artefact? Try and copy it as closely as you can and post pictures so that we can see!

Option 2 – Modernise a source
Create your own ideal phone for 2020. What would it look like? What could you use it for?

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!

🌈 Keep smiling, you are doing an amazing job!🌈

Year 2

Year 2   Thursday 21st May

Good morning Year 2, it’s almost the end of the week already!  We hope that you enjoyed your tasks yesterday, we were really impressed with how you tackled your maths work. Hopefully, you managed to spot some old buildings on your walk yesterday.

Let’s start the morning with some relaxing Cosmic Yoga, choose your favourite.

Daily tasks 

Maths – I bet you were great yesterday with your 2 times tables work! Today we will be using our knowledge of our 5 times tables to help us answer a variety of questions.  Follow the link below then choose ‘Week 5, lesson 4, the 5 times-tables’. Watch the video and then have a go at completing the worksheet click on this link. Lesson-4-The-5-times-table-2019  We have also attached a Top Tips sheet to the e-mail if you need any extra support.  We know you’ll be great!   https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/      

English – Yesterday you read and answered questions all about different animals. You found out where they lived, what they looked like, what they ate and other fascinating facts. We know how much you loved writing Kenning poems about animals so today we thought you would like to write animal riddles for us to solve. Read the riddle below and guess which animal it is describing.

I have grey hair.

I have white stripes.

I am excellent at digging.

I live underground.

What am I?

Did you guess? Yes, it was a badger. To get started, carry out some research about an animal or use the comprehension text from yesterday. Write 4 lines about the animal, they should begin with the word ‘I’. The final line should be What am I? Please remember that important question mark at the end. Also look carefully at how capital letters and full stops have been used in my riddle.

Phonics – Read Write Inc daily lessons can be watched from 10.30 am 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, write a list of words that have the sound ‘oa’ like goat in a boat.

Afternoon – History

History starter discussion question – Why do some people have statues and memorials made about them? Why does everyone not have one?

 Sources are objects that remain from a period of time in the past. For example, an astronaut suit used by Neil Armstrong in 1969 or a medicine bottle used by Florence Nightingale in 1853 would be sources. Looking at sources from the past is a great way to learn about what life was like in the past. What did the people then use, wear or look after?

We know how much you enjoyed learning about the Great Fire of London so we would like you to look back at some artefacts from that time by following the link below.

http://www.fireoflondon.org.uk/browse-the-collection/

Choose an artefact to find out about and click on it to find out more information. If you click on the eye, you get to see the artefact more clearly. Questions to think about – Do you think the object was important? What was the object used for? How do you think this object has survived this long?

Now that you have finished finding out about the artefacts, we would like you to have a go at making a 3D replica of one of the artefacts. Try to copy it as closely as you can. Another option is to look at an artefact and try to modernise it – what would this artefact look like in the future? Can you make a 3D model? Please post pictures so we can see what you have come up with.

We hope you have a great day and we can’t wait to see your work!

Year 3

Year 3 Thursday 21st May 

Good morning Year 3! We hope you are enjoying History week so far and looking forward to the activities for this afternoon. Remember to keep playing on Times Tables Rock Stars, the tournament finishes tomorrow and please remember to keep readingJoe Wick’s workout starts at 9am if you would like to start your day with some PE. 

Today’s tasks: 

English – Read the beginning of the new story attached to today’s email and daily post. There’s a new mystery for Jamie and Joanne to solve but there’s no ending!  

Week 2 Thursday – New story opening

You are going to write the moment in the story when Mrs Smith and the children discover what has been stolenWatch Mrs McLean’s video of how to use the story from last week to help us write the first paragraph of your new story. https://youtu.be/GYNUxR4rHHI 

Maths – Today we would like you to start your math’s lesson practising your 3 times tables. Use the link https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button to play the game, hit the button. Click on times tables and then x 3. This will help you with the next part of the lesson. 

Then go onto https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ Summer Term – Week 3 (w/c 4th May) Lesson 4 – Multiply and Divide by 3. Watch the first part of the video, recapping on the two ways we can multiply by 3 and then have a go at the next 2 examples. Continue to watch the video and the teacher will show you how to use an array to multiply and divide by 3. You will then need to solve the first 4 questions in the activity. The second part of the video focuses on comparing multiplication and division calculations, representing them in bar models and using arrays to multiply by numbers greater than 12. Complete the rest of the questions in the activity and then selfmark them using the answer sheet. 

Afternoon 

History starter discussion question – Why do some people have statues and memorials made about them? Why does everyone not have one?   

Sources are objects that remain from a period of time in the past. For example, a sword used by a Viking during the invasion at Lindisfarne in AD 793 or a Rationing Book from 1941 would be sources. Looking at sources from the past is a great way to learn about what life was like in the past. What did the people then use, wear, look after?  

We have chosen this source, linked to our stone age unit of work.  

Y3 Stone Age to Bronze Age http://www.teachinghistory100.org/objects/mesolithic_tool 

This tool is called an adze. It is made out of a bone from an aurochs, a type of wild cattle, and shows the importance of wood in the Mesolithic period. 

Do you think this was an important object? How do you think this object has survived this long? How do you think historians know what it is? Click on the button that says ‘About the Object’ for more information.  

Now that we have looked at this source, here is your activity. 

Modernise a source 

  • Would we use this object for the same purpose?   
  • Or might this object look a bit different in 2020? Find out what a modern adze looks like and make a replica.

 

Computing 

Draw what makes you feel happy! Jessie, Tia and Mo love playing superheroes – it makes them feel happy. 

Task: Take a sheet of blank paper and help your child fold it into quarters. Open the paper up again. There are now four spaces on the paper. 

In each space, draw yourself doing something that makes you feel happy – a total of four different activities. These could be things they like to do by yourself, or things you (usually) enjoy with friends or family. Write what you are doing under each picture. 

Year 4

 Year 4 – Thursday 21st May 

 Rise and shine Year 4!  Can you believe that it is Thursday already? We hope that you had a great day yesterday and enjoyed the sunshine!  

 Who managed Joe Wicks yesterday?  It was another tough session! Tune in at 9am to see what he has planned for us today! 

 David Walliams will continue to share another few chapters from ‘Bad Dad’ at 11am.  There is also a link where you can catch up on the story so far, in case you have missed any parts.  https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/ 

 Today’s tasks: 

 Maths – Over the last week, we have recapped multiplying and dividing 2-digit and 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers and 2-digit numbers, so today we would like you to have a go at solving some problems!  Before you start, it would be a good idea for you to have some paper or your blue book beside you, as you may want to make notes or join in with some of the examples.  Click on the following link to get started: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ and then select ‘Summer Term, Week 4 (w/c 11th May)’ and it is lesson 1.  You will be able to watch the video clip online, however, the worksheets are no longer available for you to view so we have emailed you a copy. 

 English – Today we will be continuing with our persuasive writing unit and we will specifically look at ‘Identifying features of a text’.  Click on the following link to get started: https://www.thenational.academy/year-4/english/persuasion-identifying-the-features-of-a-text-year-4-wk4-3  Remember that there is a quiz at the beginning which you can complete, or if you want to press skip, it will take you straight to the video clip.  Towards the end of the video, there is an independent activity for you to complete.  It is suggested that you pause the video until you have completed all the questions.  If you click next, it will then take you to a worksheet.  Remember to click the small arrows on the actual worksheet before clicking ‘next activity’.   

 Afternoon tasks: 

 History starter discussion question – Why do some people have statues and memorials made about them? Why does everyone not have one?   

Sources are objects that remain from a period of time in the past. For example, a sword used by a Viking during the invasion at Lindesfarne in AD 793 or a Rationing Book from 1941 would be sources.  Looking at sources from the past is a great way to learn about what life was like in the past. What did the people then use, wear, look after?  

 Look at the photograph attached – We have chosen this source, linked to our Romans unit of work.  This is part of a word square which was found in 1978 but this item was from the Roman times.  Do you think this was an important object? How do you think this object has survived this long?    

 The following website shows some other sources which were found from the Roman times.  http://www.teachinghistory100.org/browse/curriculum/3/  If you click on each one and then select ‘About this source’ it will give you lots of information, including where and when the source was found and what it was used for. 

 Activity 1 – Artefacts can be very old and very precious because they cannot be replaced. They are mostly kept behind glass, in a museum. We would like you to choose one of the sources and replicate it.  Can you make a 3D replica of the artefact? Try and copy it as closely as you can and post pictures so that we can see!  You could even choose to draw the object and then copy underneath a few interesting facts about the item. 

 Activity 2 – You could choose to modernise one of these sources.  Some things to think about: 

  • Would we use this object for the same purpose?   
  • Would this object look a bit different in 2020?  

 Remember to share your photographs in the comments as we would love to see your creations! 

 Have a fabulous day you lot! Miss Conway and Miss Whaley xx 

  

Year 5

Year 5 Thursday 21st May

Good morning Year 5! Two more days until half term😊. We hope you enjoyed the sunshine yesterday and you managed to keep hydrated. It certainly was a hot one! Don’t forget – these tasks are there to help you, and not to worry you. If for any reason you can’t complete them – it’s no problem at all. The main thing is to stay safe and have fun. We love to see what you have been up to on the Facebook posts too 😊

Maths

We hope you managed the addition of mixed number fractions yesterday. Today we are moving on to subtracting mixed numbers.  The link to the lesson is here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/. You will need to click ‘Week 5, Lesson 4 – Subtract mixed numbers.’

The good news is that it is the same process, only this time with subtraction. You will be familiar with the teaching method, as you will be looking at using a number line to help you visualise the subtraction.

Good luck with the questions – as always – just give it your best attempt! 😊

Challenge

What is the sum of 16,223 + 8705 + 12?

How much larger is 18,202 than 14,399

Can you use the long method for: 26 x 13 and 16 x 44

Can you use the bus stop method for: 1,228 ÷ 4 and 12,847 ÷ 6.

English

Mrs Barr will take today’s lesson and will look at formality in diary entries with you, thinking about formal and informal language. You can access here: https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/diary-entry-spag-focus-formality-year-5-wk4-4#slide-1  We looked a little at this when we wrote our persuasive letters –  we recognised some adverts used quite informal language, to hook in their audience, while letters used formal language to get across a serious tone. You will also revise contractions – remember these are words that are joined together using an apostrophe. EG – don’t, wouldn’t, can’t. How many contractions can you think of? Remember to give it your best shot and Mrs Barr will show you the answers at the end. After, use the look, say, cover, write and check method to practise your spellings.

Afternoon – History

History starter discussion question – Why do some people have statues and memorials made about them? Why does everyone not have one?

Sources are objects that remain from a period of time in the past. For example, a sword used by a Viking during the invasion at Lindisfarne in AD 793 or a Rationing Book from 1941 would be sources. Looking at sources from the past is a great way to learn about what life was like in the past. What did the people then use, wear, look after?

We have chosen this source, linked to our Raiders and Invaders unit of work.

Take a look at this source here: http://www.teachinghistory100.org/objects/viking_treasure

We know how important treasure was to the Vikings – it was even considered their currency. What types of treasure can you see in the image? What might it have been used for?

Your task is to ‘replicate the source’. Artefacts can be very old and very precious because they cannot be replaced. They are mostly kept behind glass, in a museum. However, can you make a 3D replica of the Viking treasure? Try and copy it as closely as you can! You could use household items such as: tin foil, old jewellery, cutlery – think outside the box!

We would love to see your versions of Viking treasure – post your images in our comments below 😊

As an extra challenge, think about if you were a Viking in 2020, what would your treasure be? Write a list of items that are in your home that you would consider ‘treasure’ to you!

Most of all – have a LOVELY day!

Love Mrs Berry and Miss Ornsby xoxoxo
