Nursery

Nursery – Wednesday 24th June  

Good morning Nursery and here’s to a happy and sunny Wednesday.  We hope you were able to join in with Mr Sutherland’s assembly. Our families loved singing along to ‘Yellow Submarine’ at home.

RWI Phonics:

Today’s sound is ‘h’. 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:

Can you hop around the house saying ‘h h h h h’ like the sound that begins with hop?

Maths activity: Money (coin rubbing)

Look at your coins.  Can you name them just like we did yesterday? Now all you need is some paper and pencils? Simply place your coin under the paper and rub away, making sure you cover the whole coin. If you have blu tac it may be easier to use it to stick the coin onto a surface? Well done!

 

Geography task:

  • Can you do some nature Rubbings? A fun way to talk about nature is to do some crayon rubbings on things that are outside. A tree trunk, the pavement, a leaf, the fence can all be great ways to talk about the textures in the world around us. What words can you use to describe the texture and feel of the items you use?
  • If you managed to make some salt dough, you may want to try making leaf impressions. Use a bag to collect different types of leaves. When you get home make a batch of salt dough to press your leaves into so that you are left with the leaf impression. Once the salt dough dries, you can paint your leaves and have a nature inspired piece of art. Will you paint or colour your leaf to look like a leaf in summer or a leaf in Autumn? How might they be different?

 

Story time:  The Jolly Postman

Link to story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpeo_0yoD0k

This is a great story and we know you will recognise many characters from other stories we have shared together. Afterwards you may want to use your junk modelling skills to make your very own post box using an old box and colours or paint.  This will be great to use when you practice your writing skills. You may use it to put your very own letters in. We would love to see your creations in the comments or via email.

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 sunny day children, from all of your Nursery teachers. Keep smiling and play, play, play!  😊

 

Reception

Reception Wednesday 24th June  

Good morning Reception. There was some super maths work yesterday and it looked like you enjoyed the activities. We hope lots of you managed to join in with Mr Sutherland’s assembly too. We all enjoyed singing along to ‘Yellow Submarine’ at home.

Phonics:

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

Set 2 sound (repeated) is: oo as in look at the book

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 musical chairs with words! Play the music and when it stops you have to find a chair but with a word on! You must shout the word before you sit down! Can repeat this game using different words with different sounds in?

Writing

The Zog story provides a great context for talking to children about fire safety. Talk about staying safe around hot things in the home, and the difference between burns and scalds. Teach children that they need to ‘crawl low and go’ if there is smoke, and ‘stop, drop and roll’ if their clothes catch fire. Talk about the role of the fire service and calling 999 in an emergency. Explain that the best way to treat a burn is to cool it under cold running water for several minutes, and if it is severe, to cover it in a layer of cling film to stop germs and dirt getting into it until you can get to hospital. Can you make a fire safety poster to put up at the dragon school so they know how to stay safe?

Maths Today you will be working out some subtractions. We sometimes call them take away calculations. Look carefully at the ten frames to see how many dragons there are. Some fly away. How many are left? Can you write your answer as a full calculation? 3-2=1. The ten frames will help, and you can also use objects to help you such as counters, pieces of pasta…whatever you fancy really!

https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Day-3-Zog.pdf

We’d love to see your own number stories too so ask a grown up to type them into Facebook comments and we’ll answer them. 😊

Geography week activities:

Can you do some nature Rubbings? A fun way to talk about nature is to do some crayon rubbings on things that are outside. A tree trunk, the pavement, a leaf, the fence can all be great ways to talk about the textures in the world around us. What words can you use to describe the texture and feel of the items you use?

Have a lovely day and we look forward to seeing what you get up to.

Before you go to bed tonight put some sounds you have been learning into some water and then put them in the freezer- this will be needed for some phonics fun tomorrow!!

Mrs Cassidy and Miss Cavanagh 😊

Year 1

Year 1 Wednesday 24th June 

🌈 Happy Wednesday, Year 1! 🌈 Did you tune in to our Facebook live assembly yesterday? We had so much fun singing along to Yellow Submarine together 💛 

Today’s tasks:  

Maths – 
Today, we are going to be comparing numbers! Here is today’s lesson:
Summer Term – Week 9 (w/c 22nd June) – Lesson 3
You need to click the video that says ‘Lesson 3 – Comparing numbers https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
We have looked at comparing numbers in class and this video might remind you of what we used to help us with the symbols…. 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GQtIUEEeRE 
Remember, Blockzilla likes the bigger numbers. 
As well as the symbols, we also used key phrases such as ‘less than, greater than and equal to’. With your grownup, talk about the meaning of ‘less, greater and equal’ before you start. Todays lesson will look at comparing bigger numbers
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.
Y1-Summer-Block-4-D3-Comparing-numbers-1-2020 
 

Extra Challenge
If you completed the worksheets and want an extra challenge, try the number card question.

What could their numbers be? How many different answers did you find?
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 find out the meanings of our key words yesterday?
I wonder if you found anything ancient in your house…. We would love to see 😊  

Task 1: Sidney Spider wrote a letter to his new friends on page 11 but he’s not very good at full stops and capital letters. Can you add them into his letter in the correct place? You could use a different colour pen to show your corrections just like we do in school.  

Task 2: Once you have corrected the letter, we would like you to have a go at some handwriting practice. Before you start, why not warm up with some finger fitness
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2tBH_XyeJc 
Then, pick the letters you find tricky and have a go at writing them in the air, on your grownups back or even lying down!  Rewrite the letter in your best handwriting, thinking carefully about the way you are forming your letters. We would love to see some beautiful handwriting ✏️ 

Afternoon 

This week, we are celebrating 🌎 Geography 🌎!  

8th June 2020 was World Ocean’s Day! Water makes up 71% of our world and our oceans hold 96.5% of the world’s water, which human and animals and plants need to survive! Our oceans are very important. Watch this video to remind yourselves of the names of our oceans and where they are located around the world https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z849q6f/articles/zmqwscw  

Unfortunately, plastic is endangering the living things found in our oceans. Let’s find out a bit more about this problem by looking at the presentation from Kids Against Plastic and The Environment Agency, attached to our website post.  

Option 1: Reuse! Think about all the plastic items you use and throw away every day. Clean out anything plastic that you might get rid of (e.g. food packaging, water bottles, straws) and collect them over the week to see just how much plastic could end up in the oceans, just from one household. 
How many items did you collect? Were you shocked? 
Can you use the plastic you have collected to create a model of one of the animals that plastic in the ocean puts in danger? Show it to your family members and explain to them why it is important for us to recycle and to limit how much plastic ends up in our oceans! Make a poster to encourage people to reduce, reuse, recycle plastic! 

Option 2: Make your own bio-plastic! 
Follow the instructions to make your own alternative plastic, which is not dangerous for the oceans and environment as it breaks down much quicker than normal plastic.
https://dnk4skl3hw8rq.cloudfront.net/assets/fdea0753aae1ae4e75b85a04aabebaa44204a23c/MakeYourOwnBioplastic.original.pdf?1585906016  

If you would like to find out more about caring for our planet, take a look here https://www.theschoolrun.com/homework-help/caring-environment  

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 24th June

We are half way through the week, Year 2. We hope that you’re having a great week so far. We’re sure that our budding geographers are! We hope you managed to join in with Mr Sutherland’s assembly yesterday. We had a great time singing the song and seeing some of your names popping up to say hi made our day!

Joe Wicks is back this morning, let’s get off to an active start with his workout.

Daily tasks

Maths – How did you find yesterday’s position and direction work? Today, we are continuing to develop these skills and we are going to learn how to describe turns. Before you watch the video, see if you can follow these instructions.

  1. Choose a starting position. Make a half turn.
  2. Go back to your starting position. Make a full turn.
  3. Go back to your starting position. Make a quarter turn.

Now, follow this link https://vimeo.com/430109458 to watch the video. Once you have watched the video, open the worksheet, which is attached here. Lesson 2 – Describing turns  As this unit of work is new, we would recommend opening up the Top Tips sheet, also attached here. Top tips for describing turns   We would love to see how you answer question 6 with your reasoning skills so please share in the comments of our Facebook post.

English – Your comic strips were amazing yesterday! Today we would like you to put yourself in the role of two of the mini-beasts from ‘Caterpillar Shoes’, the shiny beetle and the flea. Remember we have done this before, it’s like hot-seating. Read each of the questions below and write the answers out in full sentences. If the question asks ‘Why?’, your sentence will need to have the conjunction ‘because’ in it.

The shiny beetle

  1. How did you feel when the caterpillar gave you your shoes? Why?
  2. What have you been doing with your new shoes?
  3. What do you do with your new shoes when you go to bed?

The flea

  1. How did you feel when the caterpillar gave you (and your family) the shoe? Why?
  2. Describe what it is like to live in your new shoe.

We have attached a sheet with these questions on if you would prefer to print it out and write on that. The beetle and the flea question sheet   Keep this work handy as it is really going to help with your writing tomorrow. Here is the link again for the film if you need it. 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 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 – We can’t believe that we are half way through Geography Week! Yesterday, we talked about the difference between human and physical features. Today, we are going to focus on physical geography. Remember that physical features are the Earth’s natural features like mountains, rivers, deserts, forests, sea, cliffs, coasts, oceans, as well as climate and seasons.

First, we’d like you to watch a video to remind us a bit about climates around the world. What do you think the climate is like in the Arctic Circle right now? Would it be the same as it is here? https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/geography-ks1–ks2-climate/zjdthbk

Alaska and the Arctic Circle was very different to the UK because of its climate. We have looked at the Arctic Circle and its physical features in school. Today, we would love you to make a model of some of the physical features found there. You might want to make a poster to tell others about it instead!

  • Make a model of how you imagine the Arctic Circle looks like – you might want to use an old shoe box and you could use materials like cotton wool! Think about including sheet ice, icebergs, rivers and mountains in your model. Here’s two examples:

Reading

For those of you enjoying ‘The Boy Who Grew Dragons,’ here is chapter 8. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPVUBhDYhXQ&list=PLd5OvpigUuUH6xXqFd8QfUQdD4RT1uFYr&index=10

You could read to someone at home, read to a favourite teddy or toy or ask an adult to read to you. There are lots of ways that you can read without even picking up a book – read a recipe, a shopping list, a magazine, the instructions of a board game! Try and read something new today.

Have a wonderful Wednesday, Year 2, and stay safe on your daily walk!

From Mrs Bainbridge and Miss Jobey

Year 3

Year 3 Wednesday 24th June 

Welcome to Wednesday year 3! Well the sun stayed away a bit yesterday but it was nice and warm so we still got some fresh air. Maybe a BBQ could happen for tea today! What do you think? What geographical features have you seen when you’ve been out and about on your walks? On my walk yesterday, I saw loads of human features like car parks, shops, roads, traffic lights and walls. I also saw some physical features like trees, ferns, the River Wear and some woodland. 

Today’s tasks:   

Maths 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 12 – To draw 2D shapes based on their properties. Today, it is Miss Brinkworth teaching you. Start the lesson with the quiz, revisiting yesterday’s work and then return to the video. Listen carefully to the star words as they are important for today’s learning and have a go at the warmup activity. Miss Brinkworth will clearly explain and model how to draw 2D shapes based on their properties and then she will ask you to have try. When you are told to do so, do the independent activities and return to the video for the answers.  

English – Today we’re going to investigate some of the words and phrases that help you to write an interesting information text. The grammar focus for today is adjectives. Remember, adjectives are used describe a noun. For example: The tiredold man wandered over the busy road. To make information writing interesting for the reader you can add adjectives to describe different nouns. In ‘The Truth about Trolls’, the writer, Professor Folklore, described the eyes, nose and teeth of the trolls using two adjectives. Work through the adjectives sheet attached below to use adjectives effectively. 

English Wednesday 24.6.2020 Trolls adjectives work

Afternoon  - Geography

Yesterday, we talked about the difference between human and physical features. Today, we are going to focus on physical geography. Remember that physical features are the Earth’s natural features like mountains, rivers, deserts, forests, sea, cliffs, coasts, oceans, as well as climate and seasons. 

First, watch a video to compare life in the UK to life abroad. You’ll notice that not everything is the same for those living in another country! 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/geography-ks1-ks2-your-world-living-next-to-rivers-belfast-pune/zh8fbdm 

Pune in India was very different to the UK because of its river. We have learnt about rivers in school a little while ago. Today, we would love you to make a model of a river or a poster to tell others about it! The website below will help you with some ideas and you can also type in river models into a google search for more images to help you. 

Year 4

Year 4 – Wednesday 24th June

Afternoon tasks:

Yesterday, we talked about the difference between human and physical features. Today, we are going to focus on physical geography. Remember that physical features are the Earth’s natural features like mountains, rivers, deserts, forests, sea, cliffs, coasts, oceans, as well as climate and seasons. 

We know how much you enjoyed our ‘Extreme Earth’ topic, so today we are going to begin by reminding ourselves of some of the natural disasters that we studied.  Use some of the clips below to help you recap:

What is a volcano? https://youtu.be/BAR3P3Fshok  

How earthquakes trigger tsunamis https://youtu.be/xyKgamjegtQ  

Volcanoes https://youtu.be/lAmqsMQG3RM 

What is an earthquake? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlePrsXTGxQ 

Earthquake and volcanoes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C36aB6JEGms  

Earthquakes https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/geography-ks1–ks2-earthquakes/zbr2mfr 

Tornado recap – https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0295zl2
 
You task – Once you have recapped the many different natural disasters, we would like you to choose an activity from the options below:

Option 1: Make a model! 
First, choose a natural from the list below:
– Earthquake
– Tornado
– Hurricane
– Tsunami
– Volcano
Or a different one of your choice! 

Then, we would like you to create a model to show this natural disaster.  You could create a volcano erupting, or you could choose to create a model of all of the houses which have been destroyed after an earthquake or a hurricane.  Below are some links to share some ideas: 

Earthquake model – https://www.3dgeography.co.uk/earthquake-models 

Make a volcano eruption – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9b_gltKtERY 

Make a tornado in a bottle – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9OmmqtoM_k
 
Option 2:  Create a poster or a fact file. 

Again, we would like you to begin by choosing a natural disaster from the list above.  You could choose one you feel as though you know the most about, or it may be a good idea to choose a one that you aren’t as familiar with as this is a good opportunity for you to learn more!  Once you have chosen a disaster, we would like you to carry out some research before creating your own poster or fact file, to share new facts with other children.

We would love to see photographs and videos of your models and posters!

Have a super day and get ready to get creative!  We will chat to you on Teams at 9am.  Love Miss Conway and Miss Whaley 😊 xxx

Year 5

Year 5 – Wednesday 24th June

Good morning Year 5! Half way through the week already! We hope you enjoyed the sunshine yesterday afternoon! Well done to everyone who managed to join us on Teams yesterday for maths and English. More fun today! 😊

Today’s tasks.

Maths

Following morning maths with Mrs Berry, it’s back to decimals and multiplying by 10,100 and 1000. This is all about place value! Enjoy 😊

English

Today’s focus will be ‘adverbs of possibility’ which we looked at briefly yesterday so head over to Teams to find out more 😊

Afternoon – Geography

Yesterday, we talked about the difference between human and physical features. Today, we are going to focus on physical geography. Remember that physical features are the Earth’s natural features like mountains, rivers, deserts, forests, sea, cliffs, coasts, oceans, as well as climate and seasons.

First, watch the video to compare life in the UK to life abroad. You’ll notice that not everything is the same for those living in another country! https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/geography-ks1-ks2-your-world-north-of-england-north-australia/zjrtscw

Task 1: Australia was very different to the UK because of the climate. We have looked at climate in school. Today, we would love you to make a poster to tell others about the

different climates.

Task 2: In school, we were about to move onto study rivers in our Russia topic. We would like you to have a look here https://www.3dgeography.co.uk/river-models and look at the activity at the bottom ‘Make a 3D river basin model’. You could adapt this in lots of different ways – you could draw and label it, you could build the model or you could use technology to design it online!

Have a wonderful day! Mrs Berry and Miss Ornsby xxx

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 **

Additionally, this week we have the following texts to choose from and we encourage you to answer the comprehension questions too. Remember the answers are on the last page. This week’s theme is Science:

  • The ISS
  • Mars Achieved
  • Life Cycle comparison
  • A Finch Solution
  • Charles Darwin

Please aim to complete 30 minutes on Reading Plus today.

Afternoon Geography Task:

Yesterday, we talked about the difference between human and physical features. Today, we are going to focus on physical geography. Remember that physical features are the Earth’s natural features like mountains, rivers, deserts, forests, sea, cliffs, coasts, oceans, as well as climate and seasons.

First, watch a video to compare life in the UK to life abroad. You’ll notice that not everything is the same for those living in another country!

The following link shares what life is like living next to a river in Belfast and Pune:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/geography-ks1-ks2-your-world-living-next-to-rivers-belfast-pune/zh8fbdm

LOCATION was very different to the UK because of PHYSICAL FEATURES. We have looked at PHYSICAL FEATURES in school. Today, we would love you to make a model of PHYSICAL FEATURE or a poster to tell others about it!

Watch the following link about Rivers and erosion https://www.3dgeography.co.uk/river-models

then see if you can make a 3D model of a river basin or waterfall.

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

Have fun and stay safe!

Miss Parkin and Miss Reay 😊

Nurture and Inclusion

Wellbeing Wednesday – 24th June

Welcome to Week 7 of Wellbeing Wednesday’s with Mrs Cox and Miss Tuart – this week’s theme is ‘healthy eating’.

We are all spending a lot more time at home at the moment and it can be so tempting to have more snacks than usual. Fruit and vegetable snacks are always a good choice. Here are some of Miss Tuart’s and Mrs Cox’s favourite snacks:

  • carrot sticks with humous
  • fruit salad
  • a handful of nuts
  • rice cakes with peanut butter

Mrs Cox and Miss Tuart both love making delicious chicken skewers. They are super quick and easy to make. Why don’t you and your family have a try – we are sure you will see how tasty they are – https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/chicken-skewers-tzatziki. We would love to see some pictures of your favourite foods. You could even share your recipes with us.

Here are some benefits of a healthy, balanced diet:

  • increased energy
  • improved sleep quality
