Nursery

Nursery – Monday 22nd June  

Good morning Nursery. We hope you’ve had a lovely weekend and enjoyed some of the sunshine. Welcome to the first day of Geography Week! We hope that you had a chance to watch our launch video yesterday. How many places did you recognise?

RWI Phonics:

Today’s sound is ‘e’ which I’m sure you will enjoy learning and joining in with!

YouTube Ruth Miskin Training website:

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

Try blending some sounds you know to read words.  This link will support you.

Maths activity – playing shops with money:

Do you remember the times we have used the till in nursery and made a shop? Today we thought you could make your own shop. All you need to do is use some things from your kitchen cupboard and put a price on them. Ask your grown-up to write prices on a label (it would be super of you could write the price tags yourself). If you prefer you could set up a toy shop and put prices on your toys and pretend to sell them. Who will be the shopkeeper and who will be the customer?

 

Geography task:

What do those signs mean: As you walk past any type of sign, tell your adult what you think it means. Your adult will be able to tell you what it means. When you get home, why not design your own sign! What will it tell people (or cars and other forms of transport) to do? Why not design a sign for your bedroom?

Collect and Dissect: Go out and collect acorns, flowers, and leaves, then bring them home and look inside them. It is a way to work on comparing objects and to see how things look on the inside. Can you draw or take photographs of what they look like on the inside?

 Story time – What the Ladybird Heard:

This is the time of year we see some bugs. I saw some ladybirds in my garden and thought you might like to listen to one of my favourite stories. Enjoy reading and watching it and afterwards you may like make some salt dough ladybirds (see the picture). This will give you a chance to practice counting too as you make the spots on your lady birds.

Making salt dough is so easy! Just follow the 4 easy steps below to create the best salt dough recipe.

  1. Mix 2 cups of plain flour and 1 cup of salt together in a large bowl.
  2. Add 1 cup of water.  Add it in slowly as you may need less.
  3. Knead the mixture into dough.
  4. Get creating! Make the shape of a ladybird. Bake it in the oven.  Once it’s dry you can paint it!

You may want to try making more bugs by using a black market to draw lines along the creases of the pasta shells (look at the picture).

Have a great day Nursery and play, play, play!  Sending the biggest hugs and smiles your way as always!

 

Reception

Reception – Monday 22nd June

Good Morning Reception!  We hope you have had a lovely weekend. This week is Geography week so we’re looking forward to finding out about our surroundings.  We hope you saw the video yesterday and spotted some familiar faces and places!

In other news, Mrs Cassidy has some very exciting news to share with you all…. She is pregnant and will welcome a new baby into her family at the end of September. Her daughter, Emily, is very excited to become a big sister!

Today’s activities:

Phonics

Set 1 sound of the day:  e

Set 2 sound of the day: ow

RWI will continue ‘Read and Hold a sentence 1’ today.

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

Red word reading is also continuing – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

An alternative activity could be – there are some great games on cbeebies under the topic literacy. The following link is to Alphablocks where you need to fill in the missing letter: https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/puzzles/alphablocks-school-words-quiz

Writing

This week our activities are linked to the story of ‘Zog’, a story that we enjoy listening to in school! Here is a link to listen if you do not have it at home https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Svv6K19rjzs or you can watch it on BBC iPlayer. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0bwdw8y/zog

In the story, Zog wants to win a golden star. Can you make your own star for something you have done well or tried hard with while you have been at home? Maybe you would like to make your grown up a golden star for helping you with your home learning. Don’t forget to write on the star why they have received it!

Maths – Today we would like you to explore rainbows and create your own. Rainbows are patterns made of seven different colours. How many different rainbows can you create? How will you remember the order of the colours?

Next, Zog has made some patterns for you. Have a look at the following link and see if you can spot the patterns he has made. Can you make your own Zog inspired pattern using the same rules as he has?

Another activity should you wish to complete it is to look at the link and spot the differences between the different Zogs. What is the same? What is different?

https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Day-1-Zog.pdf

Geography Week activities:

Go on a scavenger hunt to look for signs of summer. Here is a checklist to search for: http://www.treetoolsforschools.org.uk/activitymenu/?cat=summer

There are other checklists too that you might like to do or you could make your own scavenger hunt. Write a list of things to find and cross them off as you walk. This list can be based on colours, or certain objects or a certain number of objects; it just depends on where you are walking.

You might even like to take a little walk past school.

Sending lots of smiles your way. Have a lovely day. 😊

Maths – 
Today, we are going to be counting to 100! Here is today’s lesson:
Summer Term – Week 9 (w/c 22nd June) – Lesson 1    https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ 

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. In question 3, remember to check carefully if you are counting forwards (the numbers get bigger) or backwards (the numbers get smaller).
Lesson-1-Counting-to-100

If you want to try other activities to practise this, why not create your own 100 squareOr use Paint the Square to become more familiar with one https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/paint-the-squares. Try Jack Hartmann’s counting to 100 song with some funky dance moves! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbHobZOKY5w
You could also Google search ‘count to 100 dot-to-dot’ for some colouring activities! 

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.

This week’s story is……. Sidney Spider – A tale of Friendship 🕷️
https://www.talk4writing.com/home-school-units/ 

Read the story with your grownup or listen to it here: https://soundcloud.com/talkforwriting/sidney/s-cFsSqUMech3 

Task 1: Your first task today is to talk about the story with your grownup. What did you like about it? Did anything surprise you about the story? Is there anything you want to find out about the story? 📖
Task 2: Then, its quiz time! Answer the questions on page 8, you can go back and read parts of the story again. Your extra challenge is to write your answer in a full sentence. 

Afternoon
Did you get to watch our video we shared yesterday? Did you recognise any of the places we were in?! 
This week, we are celebrating 🌎 Geography 🌎

We are going to begin with some learning about our planet: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/geography-ks1–ks2-the-world/zkk6t39
Did you hear the video mention ‘continents’? How many are there?

Watch this video now, which is a really catchy song about continents! You might like to join in if you watch it more than once! Can you name some of the continents? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6DSMZ8b3LE

Your activity today is to make a globe or map of the world 🌎. The design is completely up to you and we would love you to be as creative as possible. Here are some ideas:  

Here is some inspiration…

Once you’ve made your globes or maps, can you… 

  • Label the continents?
  • Label the UK?

You might even like to label some oceans around the worldadd a line where the Equator is and label the Arctic and Antarctica! If you would like some help to label the different countries, use this to help: https://geology.com/world/world-map.shtml

We cannot WAIT to see what you create!

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 fabulous day, everyone! 🌈

Year 2

Monday 22nd June

Welcome to another week, Year 2! We hope that you have had a fantastic weekend, hopefully enjoying some sunshine. We are missing your smiling faces, brightening up our days.

We are going to wake up with Joe Wicks’. What kind of lesson will he have for us today?

We have a special request; can we ask that you start collecting any plastic that you might be throwing away or recycling? We have an activity planned for Thursday that requires any plastic you might be throwing away! Stay tuned to find out more.

Daily tasks –

Maths – We are going to finish off our shape work from last week with some games and art activities. First, your task is to create a tangram. What’s a tangram? Well, they were invented in China approximately 200 years ago. A tangram is a 2D re-arrangement puzzle created by cutting a square into seven pieces. These pieces are:

  • 2 large triangles
  • 1 medium triangle
  • 2 small triangles
  • 1 square
  • 1 parallelogram

Have a look at some images of tangrams by clicking here  Tangram images and we have attached a tangram template for you to print off or copy from. Tangram template

Your challenge is to move these 7 shapes around to make your own pictures! You have options of how to present your work:

  1. You can cut out the shapes, re-arrange them into a picture and stick them down.
  2. Use this online game. It gives you a picture to make and you have to fit the shapes together to make it! Choose the level of difficult you feel comfortable with. We would suggest starting with ‘easy.’ https://www.abcya.com/games/tangrams

If you’re done, use this online game to make your own pictures using shapes – you aren’t limited to the 7 shapes in a tangram this time. Make your own pictures using shapes! Select the 2D shapes to create your own pictures. As you design your picture, try to practise naming the shapes and its properties e.g. I’ll put the triangle here, it has 3 sides and 3 vertices. https://www.coolmath4kids.com/manipulatives/pattern-blocks

Take screen shots of your online work or pictures of your work and please share them! We would absolutely love to celebrate your work on our school website.

English – You are absolutely going to love your English activities over the next few weeks! We are basing our work around a short film called ‘Caterpillar Shoes’ and this is definitely our favourite film yet from the Literacy Shed! Follow the link and enjoy watching! https://www.literacyshed.com/caterpillar-shoes.html

Today we are going to focus on comprehension skills so you may want to read the questions below before watching the clip again. The first five questions are for discussion only – you don’t need to write the answers.

Activity 1

  1. Why do you think the caterpillar wants to give away his shoes?
  2. When the caterpillar gives the spider the shoes, she says they will keep her feet as warm as what?
  3. When the woodlouse gets the clogs, he says he will do a jig. What do you think a ‘jig’ is?
  4. How would you describe the beetle?
  5. How do you think the caterpillar felt once he had given all of his shoes away?

Activity 2

The story is told in the form of a rhyme. Write down all of the pairs of rhyming words you hear in the story e.g. feet and eat.

Activity 3 

For your next activity, we would like you to match the mini – beast to the type of shoe. Please click here for the activity sheet. Caterpillar Shoes Matching Activity If you can’t open the activity sheet, you can just write a list of the mini-beasts and the type of shoe that the caterpillar gives them.

We would love to see your pairs of rhyming words or your matching activity.

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 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.

Afternoon

Geography – Welcome to the first day of Geography Week, Year 2! We hope that you had a chance to watch our launch video yesterday. How many places did you recognise?

Today, we’re going to think about the message of our launch video: Where in the World? Geography is the study of places and the relationship between people and their environments. Can you remember the name of the 7 continents and the 5 oceans? If not, don’t worry! Start by watching this revision video – it’s got quite a catchy tune! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yXDYvWSswI

How many of the continents and oceans can you remember now? Your activity today is to make a globe or map of the world. The design is completely up to you and we would love you to be as creative as possible. Here are some ideas:

Once you’ve made your globes or maps, can you…

  • Label the continents and the UK
  • Label 3 of the oceans
  • Try and add a line where the Equator is – just like we did in school!
  • Can you label the Arctic and Antarctica? Remember our ‘Let’s go to the Arctic’ topic!

If you would like some help to label the different countries, follow: https://geology.com/world/world-map.shtml

Reading – Reading is a great way to escape to somewhere new! Maybe you have read a story that is set in another location around the world. If you read along with Chapters 1 to 5 of ‘The Boy Who Grew Dragons,’ here is chapter 6. What will happen next? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDqnokxJNMM&list=PLd5OvpigUuUH6xXqFd8QfUQdD4RT1uFYr&index=8   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. Remember that those of you who used Lexia in school (you will have the password and username on your Log Ins sheet in your packs if you did) can log in daily. Please don’t go past completing Level 9 though.

We hope that you have a marvellous Monday Year 2, and that you have fun making your globes or maps! It would be amazing to see lots of photos in the comments.

Year 3

Year 3 Monday 22nd June 

Hello and welcome to GEOGRAPHY WEEK year 3!  We hope you have had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the weather. Mrs Cowan went strawberry picking on Saturday. Her girls, Isabel and Charlotte loved searching for the biggest, juiciest strawberries and have enjoyed giving some to their grandmas. Mrs McLean has been very busy decorating and sprucing up the paint in her house, removing Edward’s grubby hand-marksWe would love to hear what you have been up to! If you would like to share this, please put this in the comments on our Facebook post. 

Today’s tasks:  

Maths This week we have set you some subtraction games on Purple Mash, to help you get better at subtracting numbers mentally. These are additional activities for you to do and the games will be in your 2dos all week, so you can play them as many times as you want! 

Click onto https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-3/subjects/maths then scroll down to the section that says ‘Angles and Shape’ and go to lesson 10 – To identify rectangles including squares. Start the lesson by having a go at thintroductory quiz – this is just some revision from your previous lesson. Then Miss Brinkworth will explain the things you will need to today’s lesson. There are some new star words today so listen carefully and repeat them, and by the end of the lesson you should know them all. Watch the video carefully and join in when Miss Brinkworth asks you to. Have a go at the main activity and then return to the video for the answers. If you would like an extra challenge today, do the knowledge quiz at the at of the lesson. 

English – There are many stories that have trolls in them like the one we read last week. Trolls, like dragons, giants and unicorns, have been talked and written about for hundreds of years. One very well-known story, we’re sure you know, is about a very angry troll that tried to stop goats going over a bridge to feed on the rich, green grass. But is this what all trolls are really like? The information that is attached to your email and the daily post on the website has been written by Professor Folklore, an expert on Trolls from the University of Myth and Legend 😉. He provides some basic information on these strange, often misunderstood mythical creatures. You can decide what you think maybe true and what needs more research to establish the truth. Professor Folklore needs other experts to write more about trolls so that the ‘truth’ can be shared across the world. He wondered whether you could, over the next couple of weeks, also become an expert on trolls.  

English Monday 22.6.2020 The Truth about Trolls text

Read the text then look at these words: earthquake, volcano, erupt, cave. We’ve already learnt a little about these things at school this year but you might have forgotten some of it because it was a while ago. Follow the BBC Bitesize links to find out more about these things and write some brief information about them.   

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z849q6f/articles/zj89t39

Afternoon: Where in the World? Have you watched our video with your family and guessed where our Dunston Hill staff have been around the world? It was posted on our Facebook page on Sunday night to get you ready for Geography Week!

Today’s Task: Your activity today is to make a globe or map of the world. The design is completely up to you and we would love you to be as creative as possible. Here are some ideas:

Look at these pictures, too…

Once you’ve made your globes or maps,

Can you…

  • Label the continents · Label the UK · Label the oceans · Try and add a line where the Equator is · Label the Arctic and Antarctica · Label 5 countries of your choice
  • Locate where you think Dunston is on their map

If you would like some help to label the different countries, follow: https://geology.com/world/world-map.shtml

If you would like a challenge, try the ocean’s quiz on Purple Mash https://www.purplemash.com/#tab/pm-home/topics/geography/oceans

We will look forward to seeing your fabulous work and effort on today’s Facebook Page!

Have fun and stay safe! ❤️
