Nursery – Thursday 25th June  

Good morning Nursery. Wasn’t it a beautiful day yesterday. We enjoyed using our paddling pools and water pipes as we got soaking wet. What did you get up to?

RWI Phonics:

Today’s sound is ‘r’. 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:

Dip a paint brush into clean water and paint the ‘r’ onto the ground.

Maths activity: Going to the shops

 This is one of the easiest tasks we will have given you but it is an important life skill. All you need to do is go the shops with your grown-up and spend a little bit of money. You may want to write a shopping list after checking the cupboards to see what you need before you leave.  When you go to the till and the shopkeeper asks for the money, we would like you to make the payment.  Some shops aren’t taking cash at the minute, so you may need to scan your grown-up’s payment card. We have done lots of this type of role play in nursery and now you will have done it for real. Remember those key words; cost, how much and change. Good shopping everyone!

Geography task:

Use the natural world around you to build a nest, you could use leaves, twigs, grass, fur cones, shells, anything you have at home, use your imagination for your creation! Can you create a nest for a bird? Have a look and see if you can find any birds nesting in trees or bird boxes at home!  Use the interest to see if you can find any birds making nests.  There are a few to choose from on YouTube.

Story time: The Shopping Basket by John Burningham

Link to story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_HYKelQG6Y

Enjoy this story about a boy who goes to shops, but it takes him longer than you might expect! This story links in nicely with our theme of money and today’s maths task. We wonder what you might see on your way to the shops. You could make up your own shopping basket but use a bag instead? 😊

 

Have a great Thursday children, from all of your Nursery teachers. We are sending you big smiles and hugs! Keep smiling and play, play, play!  😊

 

 

Reception

Reception – Thursday 25th June

Good morning everyone! We hope you all enjoyed the sunshine yesterday! Lots more lovely posts of your work, well done. We’re glad you’re enjoying Zog.

Today’s activities:  

Phonics: Set one sound of the say is: r

Set two sound of the day is: ar

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: Brrrr – The sounds you froze last night are all stuck! Your job is to get them out! How will you do it? What will you use? When you have got the sounds out what words can you make?

Writing:

In the story, the Year 4 dragons practice capturing princesses using scarecrows. Today we would like you to make your own scarecrow princesses to practice with. You could use a wooden spoon or a lolly stick and fix on pipe cleaner arms, stick on googly eyes, use wool for hair and make dresses from felt decorated with sequin jewels. You might need to list the items you need before getting them.

Maths:  Today you will become the head teacher of a dragon school! Work with your grown up to make up 20 different rules for your dragon school. Make sure you count as you go so you know you have 20. If you have written 5, how many more will you need to write? What about 10…etc?

We loved finding out about Chinese New Year and we were lucky enough to see some video clips of dragon dances. Today, we’d like you to make up your own dragon dance. How long will it last? Will it have a pattern to it? For example – stamp-stamp-clap. We’d love to see some videos.

There is also a little secret in the link…. We wonder, do you already know this secret?

https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Day-4-Zog.pdf

Geography week activities:

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! We wonder what other actions you will come up with?

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 adult where the noises are coming from? Is it a car? A bus? Water? The wind?

Have a lovely day  – stay safe in the sun if it shines again.

Mrs Cassidy and Miss Cavanagh

 

Year 1

Year 1 Thursday 25th June
Good morning Year 1! How are you today? 🌈 We hope you enjoyed some of the glorious sunshine we had yesterday! 🌞

Today’s tasks: 
Maths – 
Today, we are going to be continuing our work on comparing numbers.
Summer Term – Week 9 (w/c 22nd June) – Lesson 4 – Comparing numbers (2)
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ 

Remember, this video might remind you of what we used to help us with the symbols….  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GQtIUEEeRE  Blockzilla likes the bigger numbers. As well as the symbols, we also used key phrases such as ‘less than, greater than, more than and equal to’. We also used a place value chart, so you might like to create your own to help you today! 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-Comparing-numbers-2

Extra Challenge
Question 5 is a bit more of a challenging question. Can you talk to your grown-up about your answer and explain how you worked it out? 

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  

We saw some lovely handwriting practice and help for Sidney when writing his letter yesterday! Well done! Today, we would like you to have a look at the fact file about spiders on page 13. Read through it and talk about anything you are unsure of with your grown-up. Can you find out what the word ‘arachnid’ means?

Could you then find out some extra information about spiders to add to the fact file? You could present the information however you like! You might like to create your own factfile, create a picture with labels, create a model with captions… it’s up to you! Remember, https://www.kiddle.co/  is a safe and visual search engine for children to use.

Afternoon 
This week, we are celebrating 🌎 Geography 🌎! 

On Tuesday, 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-north-of-england-north-australia/zjrtscw 

Townsville was very different to the UK because of the warmer climate all year round, and the cyclones they have. Different parts of the world have different climates, and therefore different weather, and their seasons might be different to ours, too! 

Today, we would like you to have a go at some crafting linked to the weather and seasons. Here are some ideas for you to choose from: 

You might like to use Google Earth to explore different parts of the world, then use Kiddle to research what the weather and seasons are like there. Please share your creations and findings with us! 😊  

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 fantastic day🌈

Year 2

Thursday 25th June

Good morning, Year 2. We hope that you are all well and you are enjoying the lovely weather. We loved seeing your work yesterday, you are doing really well with our position and direction unit of work!

Let’s get off to an active start this morning by choosing your favourite Just Dance. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChIjW4BWKLqpojTrS_tX0mg

Daily tasks 

Maths – In our Maths lesson today, we are going to look at describing movement and turns – so you can use your knowledge from Tuesday and Wednesday together. Before you watch the video, see if you can follow these instructions.

  1. Choose a starting position. Take 1 step forward.
  2. Now turn left and take 2 steps forward.
  3. Now, turn right and take four steps forward.

Think about how your direction changed when you turned left and right, even though you moved forwards each time. Now, follow this link https://vimeo.com/430109634 to watch the video. Once you have watched the video, open the worksheet here. Lesson 3 – Describing movement and turns As this unit of work is new, we would recommend opening up the Top Tips sheet which is also attached here.  Top tips for describing position and direction We will be seriously impressed if you can answer question 5 today so if you try it, please share your answers in the comments under our Facebook post.

English – We hope that you enjoyed getting into the role of the beetle and the flea yesterday as this is going to help you with today’s work. We would like you to get into the role of either the flea or beetle again and write a short thank you letter to the caterpillar.

  • Begin your letter with Dear Caterpillar.
  • Make sure your opening sentence explains why you are writing.
  • Explain how you felt when the caterpillar gave you the shoes. (You could include words like, grateful, thrilled, kindness, generosity, appreciate)
  •  Explain what you have been doing with the shoes.
  • Explain how you look after the shoes.
  • You may want to ask the caterpillar a question at the end
  • Sign off with your name (in role of the flea or beetle)

Once you have finished your writing, check your punctuation and spelling. You could even add a picture to your letter. We would love to read your thank you letters.

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 – We are almost at the end of Geography Week and we hope that you have enjoyed all of the activities and crafts.

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 Plastic Pollution Presentation

Now that you have looked through the presentation, try one or both of the options below.

Option 1: Reuse!

Think about all the plastic items you use and throw away every day. Grab the plastic that you have been collecting since Monday and clean it out (e.g. food packaging, water bottles, straws). This is how much plastic could end up in the oceans, just from one household, in four days. 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? You could make a turtle, a fish, a bird, any sea creature you like! 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! Here are some examples. Please share the pictures of your creations in the comments!

Option 2: Make a poster to encourage people to reduce, reuse, recycle plastic! Remember to tell everyone why it is important that we don’t throw away plastic – it could end up in the ocean for 400 years!

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 – Seeing as we have been thinking about the sea and oceans, here is a picture story about what you might find in the ocean:  https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/A-hole-in-the-bottom-of-the-sea/

If you’re keeping up with our story ‘The Boy Who Grew Dragons,’ chapter 9 is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeLMgQn-oXI&list=PLd5OvpigUuUH6xXqFd8QfUQdD4RT1uFYr&index=11

Stay safe and keep smiling, Year 2.

Year 3

Year 3 Thursday 25th June

Hi Year 3! We hope you enjoyed the gorgeous weather yesterday! Mrs McLean enjoyed the sun by having a BBQ in her garden and last night Mrs Cowan went for a lovely walk along the beach. Please let us know what you have been up to by posting in our comments.

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 13 – To describe the properties of 3D shapes. First, do the quiz which is just a revision of yesterday’s lesson and then do the warmup activity. Today, there is some new vocabulary – 3-D, face and vertices, Miss Brinkworth will clearly explain these words as these are important for the lesson. She will then show you different 3D shapes and explain their properties, some of these you will already be familiar with. Do the independent activity when you are instructed to do so, Miss Brinkworth will explain these and remember to return to the video when you are finished for the answers.

English – Today we’re going to continue to explore some of the words and phrases that help you to write an interesting information text. The grammar focus for today is adverbs. Adverbs are ‘roving reporters’ because they can move around sentences describing action or whole clauses. They tell you more about the how, where, when and why of everything. Today we’ll be looking at ‘Add-on adverbs’. Information texts have lots of ‘facts’ about a topic. It is helpful to have words that ‘add on’ facts for the reader and not just use and … and … and … . For example, in the ‘Truth about Trolls’, ‘In addition’ has been used as a sentence starter to ‘add on’ other things that trolls like to eat:

In addition, they gather large mushrooms and dig up juicy roots that grow in the forest.

You need to use a comma after ‘In addition’ when it is at the start of the sentence. Read on in the document attached to your email and on the website to try some sentences with ‘add-on adverbs’.

English Thursday 25.6.2020 Trolls – add-on adverbs

Afternoon - GEOGRAPHY WEEK

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.

TASK – choose from one of the following: 

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. This looks like great fun and Mrs Mc is definitely going to try it with Edward! It is attached to email and website and available here:

Year 4

Year 4 – Thursday 25th June  

Hello, Year 4!  💙💛 Make sure you are ready on Teams for 9am and don’t forget to hand your work in when you are finished.  If you are having problems accessing Teams, then please message our Facebook page, or email/ring our office and we will be able to help.  Our plan for today is as follows:

9am – ‘Morning Register’.  Please remember to say good morning on Teams, it really helps us to know who is online. 

9:30-10:30 – Maths
We are continuing to recap our key Year 4 objectives. Today, we will be focusing on checking strategies. 

Follow the instructions on Teams to access the lesson.  Remember to watch Miss Conway’s video first and then the video on White Rose Maths, before completing the task. If you are having trouble accessing Teams, you can complete the White Rose Hub activity by clicking on the following link.   We have also attached the worksheet to our email.   We will post the Maths answers in the Teams chat at 10.25am.
https://vimeo.com/430335670

10:30-11:00 – Break time
You can use this time to finish off your Maths work, or to take a break and have a snack before English.  Miss Whaley and Miss Conway will still be online if you need any help. 

11:00-12:00 – English
Today, wwill be writing our own setting description. Follow the steps on Teams to access the lesson.  Remember, you must watch Miss Whaley’s video before watching the video on Oak National Academy.  If you are having trouble accessing Teams, you can compete the Oak National Academy part of the lesson by clicking on the link below.  There will be a word document attached to the assignment for you to complete you work or you could write up your description in your blue book and then send us a photograph.  https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-use-key-features-in-order-to-write-own-composition
 
Afternoon tasks:  

Today, we are going to be looking at how oceans have changed over time. This is something we would have focused on had we still been in school together.  There are some very important messages to be shared. 

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. But how does plastic waste harm sea life? How can we act to help? Let’s find out a bit more about this problem for our world… We have attached a PowerPoint presentation to our email.  

Choose one or more of the options below for your afternoon task:   

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: Oil Spills
Another danger to our oceans is oil spills. We use oil for lots of things – it makes up the fuel in our cars, some of the heating and electricity we use, it’s in plastic and synthetic materials we use all of the time. Follow the instructions of this experiment to see how hard it can be to clean up these spills!  https://littlebinsforlittlehands.com/oil-spill-experiment/   By using less electricity, walking more and turning off lights we can limit our use of electricity, which comes from oil. Make a poster to tell people how they can help the environment.  

Option 3: 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
