Nursery

Nursery – Tuesday 23rd June  

Good morning Nursery. We hope you are able to join in with some of today’s activities which and we are continuing with ‘Geography Week’.

Remember to join Mr Sutherland at 10 o clock for our Facebook Live assembly. We know lots of you loved singing along last week.

RWI Phonics:

Today’s sound is ‘l’. 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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEzfpod5w_Q

Phonics activity:

Use made up binoculars and go on a hunt for objects that belong with the sound ‘l’.

 

Maths activity: Money, money, money

Today we will continue to look at money! There are different types of coins; some are silver and others are bronze.  Look at the coins in your grown-ups purse or wallet (pretend ones are fine to use but real ones are even better).   Now name them and can you see the numbers written on the coins? Do you notice any differences?  For example; this one has leaves on the back, that one has a smooth edge, this one is bigger than the others and that one is brown!

Noticing the differences is a key part of sorting and classifying objects.  Can you sort them like the picture shown?

 

Geography task:

  • Take a photo of two places you visit on your daily walk – can you find 5 different things that are made by nature? Like trees, fields, rivers… Can you see 5 different things that are made by people? Like houses, roads, paths, shops, lampposts.  When you get home, look through the camera and talk to your grown-up about what you found. What did you see most of? Things made by people or natural things?
  • Turn your walk into an obstacle course. Jump over those cracks in the sidewalk. Run a circle around the bench. Touch that tree. Run fast, STOP! Imagine an alien has just landed and they want to find out about where they have landed. What could you tell them about where you live? Close your eyes – what might the alien hear when they first land? Can you tell your grown-up where the noises are coming from? Is it a car? A bus? Water? The wind?

 

Story time: Rainbow Fish

This is a beautiful story which I’m sure you will enjoy.  Miss Baud is looking after our class fish at her house and she would love to show the fish your own fishy creations.

Making a foil fish: Begin by drawing a fish shape on a piece of card and cutting it out. You can look in an ocean information book to discover all the different shapes that fish can be and pick your favourite. Then wrap your fish in foil – we used kitchen foil wrap, nothing fancy! You can tear the foil a little, and fold and scrunch it, to get it to fit your fish shape.  Once your fish is covered in the foil it’s then time to add your design. You can use acrylic paint, oil pastel crayons or permanent markers. You can make any design you like. You might choose recreate the patterns of a real fish, or create one from your imagination. Swirls, stripes, scales – anything goes.

When you post your fish in the comments section or email, we can show them to Finlay and Freya the nursery fish.

Link to story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nb2msIQo6TI

If you have the hard copy of the story, then even better – it’s so important to handle real books and enjoy turning the pages and pointing to characters or objects within them! 😊

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

 

Reception

Reception – Tuesday 23rd June

Good Morning Reception! We hope you enjoyed your scavenger hunt yesterday! So many super stars too – we think you all deserve super stars as you have all been working so hard.

Thank you for all the well wishes for Mrs Cassidy too.

Remember to join Mr Sutherland at 10 o clock for our Facebook Live assembly. We know lots of you loved singing along last week.

Phonics:

Set one sound of the day is: l

Set two sound of the day is: oo as in poo at the zoo

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

An alternative activity: Play 3 in a row but with sounds! Can you beat your sibling or grown up by making 3 in a row? Don’t forget to say which sound it is before you cover it. Can you think of a word that has that sound in?

Writing

In the story, the princess dreams of being something else when she grows up. Can you write a dream for yourself when you grow up? What do you want to be, and why? Mrs Cassidy always wanted to be a vet when she was younger and then she changed her mind and decided to be a teacher.

 

Maths: We love using ten frames in school and today Zog needs your help in working out how many stars he has. Take a look at the link and see if you can work out how many stars he has gained. You could even write the answer as a sum 4 + 3 = 7 Have fun! If you didn’t get the chance to make your golden star award the other day you could make one this afternoon. You might decide to make another one in a different shape!

https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Day-2-Zog.pdf

Geography Week activities:

Use play dough to create your own mini-world. Maybe you want to make an alien planet, a land of dinosaurs or an under-the-sea world.

– Roll out space rocks and create little, hidden alien homes or dinosaur caves or ocean houses.

– Think about who might live in your mini world and make them – will your aliens be tall or short? Will your dinosaurs have two arms? Will your sea creatures have small or large eyes?

– Is it a hot or cold planet? Will your aliens, dinosaurs, sea creatures need something to keep them warm?

If you don’t have play dough at home you can make some following the link. We love making play dough at school because it helps us learn to measure out ingredients and build our muscles when stirring and kneading the dough. https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/playdough-recipe

We would love to see your pictures!

Enjoy your day 😊

Year 1

Year 1 Tuesday 23rd June 

🌈 Good Morning, Year 1! 🌈 We hope you are enjoying our Geography week so far. Let’s find out what we will be getting up to today…

Today’s tasks:  

Remember to join Mr Sutherland at 10 o clock for our Facebook Live assembly. We know lots of you loved singing along last week.

Maths – 
Today, we are going to be partitioning numbers! Here is today’s lesson:
Summer Term – Week 9 (w/c 22nd June) – Lesson 2
You need to click the video that says ‘Lesson 2 – Partitioning numbers’
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.  Do as much as you can and don’t worry if you find this a little bit tricky!
Y1-Summer-Partitioning-numbers-2020

 

Extra Challenge
If you completed the worksheets and want an extra challenge, try the question about Jack and Mo. Is Jack correct? Prove it.


A little hint – think about how many ones make up 1 ten. 
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 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 
Did you enjoy the quiz yesterday? Were there any questions you had to go back and check? 

Task: In a story, we sometimes read words that we don’t understand. It’s really important that we ask about these words and find out what they mean so that we understand what we are reading… In our story ‘Sidney Spider’ there are two words that you might not have heard before – ancient and prey. Page 9 tells you what these words mean but if you have a computer or a tablet, you could research their meaning with a grownup! https://www.kiddle.co/  is a safe and visual search engine for children to use
When you are happy with the definitions, we would like you to find four things in your house that are ancient or, you could think of 4 thingsdraw and label them.
Then, name four animals that hunt for their preydraw and label them. Again, you could use your computer/tablet/books to do some research.  

Afternoon This week, we are celebrating 🌎 Geography 🌎!  

Today, we would like you to think about the difference between human and physical features. Human features come from human ideas and actions like bridges, houses, parks, shops, factories, farms, offices, harbours, roads, paths, as well as towns, villages, cities. Physical features are the Earth’s natural features like mountains, rivers, deserts, forests, sea, cliffs, coasts, oceans, as well as climate and seasons.  

On your daily walk, we would like you to take a photo of two places you visit and talk about… 

What is the name of this place? 
Where is this place and which other places are near it? 
What types of buildings can we find?
Are there any local ‘landmarks’? 
Can you see 5 human features? Can you see 5 physical features? 

Option 1: When you get home, look at your photographs – can you label the human and physical features? 

Option 2: We have looked at aerial maps in Geography so we think you might enjoy this one – Try making a map of a room in your house using Lego and then drawing a map of the model that you have made! This can be a great time to talk about scale (the size of objects in relation to each other and in relation to what they represent). Don’t worry if you don’t have Lego, just the drawing is fine.

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 terrific Tuesday! 🌈  
Miss Bunce and Miss Thompson x 

Year 2

Tuesday 23rd June

Happy Tuesday, Year 2! We hope that you enjoyed making your globes and maps yesterday and we are looking forward to what you might do today!

A big well done if you’re managing to read for 15 minutes a day – you will be feeling so much more confident with your reading by now. Keep it up!

Get your day off to a relaxing start with some Cosmic Yoga – choose your favourite.  https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga

Then remember to join Mr Sutherland at 10 o clock for our Facebook Live assembly. We know lots of you loved singing along last week.

Daily tasks

Maths – We are going to begin a unit of work called ‘Position and Direction’ and today we will be learning how to describe movement. Follow this link https://vimeo.com/430109300 to watch the video. Once you have watched the video, open the worksheet, which is attached here. Lesson 1 – Describing movement   As this unit of work is new, we would recommend opening up the Top Tips sheet attached here. Top tips for describing movement   Just try your best with this, Year 2! We would love to see how you answer question 4 with your reasoning skills so please share in the comments of our Facebook post.

English – We hope you really enjoyed watching ‘Caterpillar Shoes’ yesterday. Today we would like you to create a comic strip to tell the story of ‘Caterpillar Shoes’. In comic strips, stories are usually told through pictures and they have thought bubbles and speech bubbles so we know what the characters are thinking and saying. In each box, draw the character with their new shoes and add either a thought bubble or speech bubble. You can have the caterpillar in all of the pictures too. We have attached a sheet with all of the characters on (in order) and we have given you a few examples of what you might write inside a speech bubble or a thought bubble. Pictures of mini-beasts and examples of thought and speech bubbles    You can use the A4 comic strip attached here  Caterpillar Shoes Comic Strip  or you can create your own, maybe on the back of a spare roll of wallpaper or on little squares of paper. We have done an example below for you to look at. Be as creative as you like and of course we would love to see your comic strips. Here is the link again for the film.  https://www.literacyshed.com/caterpillar-shoes.html

 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 

Geography – It’s day two of Geography Week! Today, we would like you to think about the difference between human and physical features. We did lots of work on this when we were in school – remember how we made posters of the human and physical features of the UK? Here’s a quick reminder if you need one.

Human features come from human ideas and actions like bridges, houses, parks, shops, factories, farms, offices, harbours, roads, paths, as well as towns, villages, cities.

Physical features are the Earth’s natural features like mountains, rivers, deserts, forests, sea, cliffs, coasts, oceans, as well as climate and seasons.

On your daily walk, talk to your adult or someone in your family about:

  • What is the name of this place?
  • Which other places are near it?
  • Are there any local ‘landmarks’?
  • What types of transport can we see?
  • Can you see 5 human features and can you see 5 physical features?

When you get home, choose one of the options below.

Option 1: Draw a map of your street. It could be your view from your window. Label the human and physical features. e.g.

Option 2: Try making a map of a room in your house using Lego and then drawing a map of the model that you have made! This can be a great time to think about scale (the size of objects in relation to each other and in relation to what they represent). Are you going to make your bed the same size as a cushion?

Maybe you could even use Minecraft to create a map of your street! Think about the combination of human and physical features you will include.

Reading – Did you enjoy chapter six of ‘The Boy Who Grew Dragons’? We certainly did. Here is chapter seven for you to listen to today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THqrTp8xUqc&list=PLd5OvpigUuUH6xXqFd8QfUQdD4RT1uFYr&index=9

We’re looking forward to seeing your different maps today and remember that Times Table Rockstars is a great way for you to keep practising your Times Tables. We miss you lots!

Year 3

Year 3 Tuesday 23rd June 

Morning all! We are utterly delighted to see the sunshine back this week! Yey!!! We hope you are enjoying the better weather and doing some lovely outdoor activities. Today, we would like you start with the Joe Wick’s workout at 9am. We’ll be joining in too 😊 

Remember to join Mr Sutherland at 10 o clock for our Facebook Live assembly. We know lots of you loved singing along last week.

Today’s tasks:  

MathsClick 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 11 – To describe 2D shapes based on their properties. Today, Mr Etherton is teaching you and he will tell you the things you will need. He will start with a warmup activity, naming 2D shapes and then he will explain and model the star words. Watch the video carefully and have a go at the questions Mr Etherton asks you to do, don’t worry if you find these tricky as he will show you how to do them. Then complete the independent activity and when you are finished return to the video for the answers. Finish the lesson with the knowledge quiz.  

English – Similarly to when we began the Stone Trolls story two weeks ago, you will have noticed that the text you read yesterday had some words in bold. Today your task is to find out what those words mean. You can use the similar words clues at the bottom of the sheet (attached to your email and on the school website) to help you or you can use a dictionary or the internet to help you. Are you getting quicker at finding word definitions? Have you been able to use a dictionary? – remember to use the first two letters of the word to help you with this.  

English Tuesday 23.6.2020 word definitions

Afternoon 

Today, we would like you to think about the difference between human and physical features. Human features come from human ideas and actions like bridges, houses, parks, shops, factories, farms, offices, harbours, roads, paths, as well as towns, villages, cities.  

Physical features are the Earth’s natural features like mountains, rivers, deserts, forests, sea, cliffs, coasts, oceans, as well as climate and seasons. 

On your daily walk, talk about: 

  • Can you see 5 human features?  
  • Can you see 5 physical features?  
  • What is the name of this place?  
  • Where is this place and which other places are near it?  
  • Are there any local ‘landmarks’? 

 When you get home… 

  • Option 1: Draw a map of your journey to school and label the human and physical features (look at the photos attached for examples of what we mean by human and physical features). 
  • Option 2: Just before the school closures, we began a geography unit looking at map symbols and making maps of places we know (we drew around objects to make big group maps of our school grounds, remember?). Attached to your email and the website post are the ordinance survey map symbols documents. Have a look at them to remind yourself of the ones you’re likely to use, e.g. trees, buildings, bus station etc.  TASK – Think about how you’d like your dream town to look! What sort of buildings or green spaces might it have? Design your own town by drawing a map using an aerial view (the view from above). Would you include more human features or physical features? Would it have roads/parks/rivers/houses etc.?

For the main lesson, we are finding pairs of values. 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/428002579

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

English:

This week we are looking at a new unit based on the story, “Where the Wild Things Are.” There are three lessons in files called day 1, day 2, day 3.

  • If you are in school Monday and Tuesday complete day 1,2 and 3 during the rest of the week.
  • If you are in school Thursday and Friday complete day 1, 2 and 3 during the beginning of the week.
  • If you are not in school you have two additional days called day 4 and 5 which contain SPaG work for you to complete in your blue jotter.
  • On each day you will be instructed by our “Explorer” as to what to do. Please complete each piece of work in your blue jotter.
  • For SPaG days. Day 4 asks you to work on verbs, nouns and adjectives – there are answers in the file too for you to self assess. Day 5 asks you to work on adjectives, adverbs and determiners. Please complete each piece of work in your blue jotter.

 

Reading:

**Remember that a recording of Miss Parkin and Miss Reay reading Chapter 3 and 4 of ‘A boy called Hope’ are also saved in our Guided Reading File for you to enjoy ready to read Chapter 5 and 6 if you are in school this week **
