Nursery

Nursery Thursday 30th April

Good morning Nursery and hello Thursday!

We hope you enjoyed seeing Miss Baud yesterday sing her favourite rhyme – ‘Five Little Ducks went swimming’. We loved seeing you singing and making some amazing pictures of ducks. Miss Baud said she will show your pictures and videos to the ducks on her next walk with her dog Alfie.

Nursery rhyme task

Today’s nursery rhyme task sees Mrs Cusmano having a party. Now you may wonder why she’s having a party. Well, she wanted to keep it quiet but…it’s MRS CUSMANO’S BIRTHDAY! Mrs Cusmano wanted to share one of her favourite rhymes with you whilst she’s having a tea party with her two girls. She would absolutely love it if you could celebrate with her by joining in with the song. Watch the link below and we think your teddies and toys would love to have a tea party at your house.  You can ask your grown-ups to join you as your guest. A challenge could be writing some invites to your party.  Think about what food you would like, how many people can come along, which party games will you play and which music will you listen and dance to?

Once again we would love to see your videos and photographs – they cheer us up so much! You could even sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Mrs Cusmano and post it below. Can you imagine how happy she would be? HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR MRS CUSMANO, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.

This task links to the ‘whole reading school week’ where you will create your tea party setting.

Phonics

We hope that some of you have been able to make use of the RWI phonics website. Today’s set one  sound is ‘r’. Have a try and maybe write the letter in the air, on paper or by dipping water onto a paint brush to write on the ground.

Maths activity

We’re still on the theme of shape.   We have changed today’s shape video which we’re sure you’ll enjoy watching!  It’s Mr Maker from Cbeebies showing you his shape song. Remember to say each shape name aloud to your grown-up.

For today’s task we are going to look for lots of things that look like a rectangle. In my house, I found the television, an Ipad, a piece of paper, my bed, the door and the window. You’ve worked really hard on shapes so far and we’re wondering if you can count the corners in today’s shape.

Link to a new shape song:

Reading

Looking at Monday’s email, use the instruction sheet and the link from Oxford Owl to read a book that you can enjoy with your family. Alternatively you may want to listen to Mrs Walton read one of our favourite stories.  We won’t tell you which one it is, so click on the link below to find out.

Boys and girls, we hope you have a great day and make the most of the weather.  If you can, why not pop your wellies on and jump in some muddy puddles. Keep smiling and play, play, play!

Reception

Reception 30th April

Good morning Reception, we hope you all had a lovely day yesterday despite the rain! Let’s hope the sunshine comes back soon!

Today we have a story linked to the seaside but who will be reading it? Please click on the link to find out!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0m3AhI4Dpk&feature=youtu.be

Phonics and English

Today’s sounds are…Set one sound is ‘r’ and set two sound is ‘ar’. We’ve seen some great phonics work so far so keep up the good work everyone! You’re all fantastic!

https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/

Today we thought you might like to have a look at a traditional tale on the computer/Ipad. We would like you to login to Oxford Owl and find the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’ https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/digital_books/1415.html

Use the pictures to talk to your grown up about what might be happening then listen to the story by pressing the audio option (a perfect time for grown ups to grab a hot cuppa!) When finished, can you go back to the start and retell the story? You might like to have a go at the two activities shown at the top of the story page too. These link to sequencing the story and initial and final sounds of words.

Maths: Today’s activity links to boats. Some of you may have already made a boat last week as part of science week so you might choose a different design today. Yesterday, Mrs Cassidy’s little girl enjoyed using a big cardboard box to make her own boat to sit in. Maybe you could find something at home that could become your boat? You could then design and make the flag for your boat! You’ll be thinking about pattern and shape and something called symmetry! Click on the link for more information: https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/homelearning/early-years/Day-4-Night-Pirates.pdf

Reading week activities: This one is a whole school activity.

Option one: Think about either the Little Red Hen or the story that Mrs Gregory read earlier. Where did the story take place (the setting)? What can be seen? What can be heard? What can be felt? Use your creative skills to recreate this setting and maybe some of the characters. You may wish to:

  • Draw the setting in coloured pens, pencils, paints or crayons- could you even chalk it in your garden or in the path outside?
  • Build the setting as either a model using craft items or using items around your home as though it was a theatre play setting you were creating.
  • You might like to make some story stones like the ones shown in the picture (please see Facebook post or your email).
  • You could even make an ocean in a bottle for the story of Sharing a Shell.

Enjoy your day,

Mrs Cassidy and Miss Cavanagh

 

Year 1

Year 1 30th April 

Good morning Year 1. Another week almost over. Today is the last day of April! What month will it be tomorrow? What season are we in? 🌺 

This morning, we’re going to get warmed up with an animal themed dance! 🦁
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jr8l8PWqZis 

Today’s tasks:  

Maths –  For our Maths today, we’d like you to go on a number hunt! If you can do this outside, on a walk, for example, then that would be great, but you can also do this in your house! Which numbers can you spot? What would the next number be? What is the biggest number you can find? What is the smallest? We want you and your grown-ups to get talking all about numbers.
We have attached a photo of some great ideas for your number hunt. 

 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 

Zog’ on iPlayer – https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bwdw8y   

We loved hearing about the places you would visit if you were flying on the back of Zog 🐉. Miss Thompson and Miss Bunce would love to visit these places too!  Today, we would like you to imagine you have arrived at your chosen destination after Zog has flown you there. Can you write a postcard from that place to the people back at home? You could use your five senses to help describe where you are… 
What does it look like/ what can you see?
What can you hear? Are there birds chirping or waves crashing against the rocks?
What can you smell? Maybe some fresh candyfloss or buttery popcorn…
What can you feel? If Zog flew you to a beach you might be able to feel the soft sand between your toes. 

You will need to use your imagination for this task which we know you are great at doing! Close your eyes and transport yourself to your chosen destination… 

Afternoon 

Reading
We hope you are enjoying our story week 😊 It’s lovely to be ‘together’ for story time, even though we are apart.
Today is Mrs Neve’s turn to read you a story. We hope you enjoy! 📖
https://youtu.be/65GoiJK9LuM 

After listening to the story, we’d like you to choose one of the following activities (or both, if you like!) 

Option one: Think about the setting which the text is set in that your teacher has read to you. Where is it? What can be seen? What can be heard? What can be felt? Use your creative skills to recreate this setting. You may wish to: 

  • Draw the setting in coloured pens, pencils, paints or crayons- could you even chalk it in your garden or in the path outside? 
  • Build the setting as either a model using craft items or using items around your home as though it was a theatre play setting you were creating.  
  • Use your computer skills to build the setting or draw it using tools on PurpleMash.  

Option two: Think about the character(s) that are involved in the text that your teacher has read to you. Who are they? What do they look like? How do they behave? You may wish to… 

  • Dress up as the character from the story  
  • Make a paper dolls chain of the characters and design them to fit the descriptions you heard in the text. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYXxoVbPzqI (need scissors and A4 paper or thin card) 
  • Become an illustrator and draw the characters using pens, pencils, paints or crayons – could you even chalk them in your garden or on the path outside?
     

Have a super Thursday and we look forward to seeing what you get up to! 😊
🌈  We’re all thinking about you! 🌈

Year 2

Year 2    30th April

It’s Thursday, Year 2! We cannot believe that today is the final day of April – this month has zoomed by. A huge thank you to everyone who has added a comment or a photo to this week’s posts. We read them all and love to see what you have been getting up to.

Let’s start today with a stretch and a relaxing Yoga activity. You can choose your favourite  https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga/videos

Daily tasks – 

Maths – We’ve done lots of measuring this week, Year 2, and today is going to use your addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and measurement skills! Wow! We are sure that you are up for the challenge. Follow the link https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ and click on ‘Summer Term – Week 2’ and then on ‘Lesson 3 Four operations with length.’ Today’s lesson will make you think about length in a different way. Watch the video, not forgetting about the ‘Flashback 4’ part first if you can do it. We’ve done some extra examples as if we were solving the problems together on today’s guidance sheet, attached to the e-mail post. Open the worksheet and try your best to answer all of the questions. Our best tip for today is to think carefully before you start to answer!

If you do not have internet access, try these questions:

  1. My pencil is 10cm. Sally’s pencil is 5cm longer. How long is her pencil?
  2. I make a tower. It is 30cm tall! Joe makes a tower 20cm shorter. How tall is it?
  3. Tim makes a cake. It is 16cm taller than mine. My cake is only 5cm. How big is Tim’s cake?
  4. I have a chocolate bar half the size of Josh’s chocolate bar. His bar is 10cm long. How long is my chocolate bar? (remember, halving is like dividing by 2!)
  5. Ella doubles the size of her tower. It was 7cm. How tall is it now? (remember, doubling is like multiplying by 2!)

English – In English, we’re going to be using the CGP reading comprehension booklet as it’s reading week. First, open page 14 and read the text called ‘The Tear Thief.’ Once you’re finished, try your best at answering the questions underneath. If you finished this text quickly, try the text called ‘The United Kingdom’ on page 15. Remember, if you find the text tricky, read it together with a grown up and also highlight any information in the text to help you.

Phonics – Read Write Inc daily lessons can be watched from 10am onwards everyday – click on this link  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ (refer to the attachment on Monday’s e-mail for the timetable of sounds for the week). Join in with the speed sound lesson and the word time spelling lesson as well.

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, use this time to practise which ‘tious’ or ‘cious’ spelling you use for the following words: precious, vicious, spacious, scrumptious, cautious. Can you underline the special friends in these words?

Afternoons –

Reading Week Day 4 – Mrs Bainbridge is ready to read the next part of the story to you today. We wonder what is going to happen to Charlie today? Follow this link then choose from the options below. https://youtu.be/fU56VEnq4mI

Option one: Think about the setting which the text is set in that your teacher has read to you. Where is it? What can be seen? What can be heard? What can be felt? Use your creative skills to recreate this setting. (You could choose the sweet shop, Charlie’s house or the front of the Chocolate Factory). You may wish to:

  • Draw the setting in coloured pens, pencils, paints or crayons- could you even chalk it in your garden or in the path outside?
  • Build the setting as either a model using craft items or using items around your home as though it was a theatre play setting you were creating.
  • Use your computer skills to build the setting or draw it using tools on PurpleMash.

Option two: Think about the characters that are involved in the text that your teacher has read to you. Who are they? What do they look like? How do they behave? You may wish to…

  • Dress up as the character from the story
  • Make a paper dolls chain of the characters and design them to fit the descriptions you heard in the text. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYXxoVbPzqI ( need scissors and A4 paper or thin card)
  • Become an illustrator and draw the characters using pens, pencils, paints or crayons – could you even chalk them in your garden or on the path outside?

 Computing and Internet Safety – As we’re all using the internet a lot at the moment to access all of the information we need, we’re building in some e-safety work for the next three weeks to remind you how to stay safe online. Click on the link below then complete Activity 1 – Jessie and Friends, Episode 2

https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/globalassets/thinkuknow/documents/thinkuknow/parents/pdf/thinkuknow-5-7s-home-activity-sheet-1.pdf 

We would love to see your work so please attach photos of your Charlie and the Chocolate Factory creations to this post!

Year 3

Year 3 Thursday 30th April

Morning Year 3! We’ve got the next part of Fantastic Mr Fox as read by Mrs Cowan today here: https://youtu.be/TdTC_nYImZ8 😊 We love reading! We hope you’re enjoying it as much as we are. Keep quizzing so we can see which stories you’ve been enjoying! This week’s Times Table Rock Stars Tournament finishes tomorrow so let’s see if 3M can close the gap with 3C! (Come on 3M! Love Mrs Mc)

Today’s tasks:

Maths –  https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ Week 2 – Lesson 4 – Fractions of a set of objects (2).  Start the lesson with Flashback 4, remember to pause the video to solve the problems before the answers are shown! Today’s lesson builds on the previous lessons and focuses on real life problems.  On the second slide, have a go at solving the problem before the lady shows you how to do this.  Think back to the methods used in the previous lessons. Then carefully watch the examples and if it helps you, you can draw them on some paper as the lady is modelling each step. Pause the video when you are told to do so and have a go at the example and don’t forget to put on the unit of measurement. Once you have finished watching the video have a go at the questions on some paper or in your book, don’t worry if you find them tricky – watch the examples again to help you.

Challenge! Alex and Eva share a bottle of juice. Alex drinks 3/5 of the juice. Eva drinks 200 ml of the juice.  One fifth of the juice is left in the bottle. How much did Alex drink? What fraction of the bottle did Eva drink? What fraction of the drink is left?

English – Today we’re going to be thinking about chapter 4 of Fantastic Mr Fox (read by Mrs Cowan on Tuesday here https://youtu.be/DVfQMCn3ltI ) and how authors show where a character is speaking – dialogue. This is done using inverted commas (speech marks) and reporting clauses (said Mr Fox, shrieked the farmer etc).

Complete the correct dialogue punctuation and reporting clauses in the passage below. There is a copy of this attached to the email you received so you can print and fill in if you’d like. If these are a bit tricky, check the email for the simpler version to get you started – you can always try this one afterwards.

  • Wake up! They’re digging us out! ___ Mr Fox ___
  • Mrs Fox ___ Oh my! Are you sure?
  • Of course! Listen! ___ Mr Fox.
  • They’ll kill us all! ___ Mrs Fox ____
  • Oh no they won’t! ___ Mr Fox ___
  • But they will! What will we do? ___ Mrs Fox.
  • What’s going on Mummy? ___ the littlest fox.

Afternoon

Option one: Think about the setting which the text is set in that your teacher has read to you. Where is it? What can be seen? What can be heard? What can be felt? Use your creative skills to recreate this setting. You may wish to:

  • Draw the setting in coloured pens, pencils, paints or crayons- could you even chalk it in your garden or in the path outside?
  • Build the setting as either a model using craft items or using items around your home as though it was a theatre play setting you were creating.
  • Use your computer skills to build the setting or draw it using tools on PurpleMash.

Option two: Think about the character(s) that are involved in the text that your teacher has read to you. Who are they? What do they look like? How do they behave? You may wish to…

  • Dress up as the character from the story
  • Make a paper dolls chain of the characters and design them to fit the descriptions you heard in the text. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYXxoVbPzqI ( need scissors and A4 paper or thin card)
  • Become an illustrator and draw the characters using pens, pencils, paints or crayons – could you even chalk them in your garden or on the path outside?

Year 4

Year 4 – Thursday 30th April

Morning Year 4, we hope you enjoyed Mrs Rippon’s poem yesterday. It was great to see all the work you completed in our comments. Only two more days left on our Times Tables Rockstar tournament… Who will win? Make sure you are logging on to help your team.

Don’t forget Joe Wicks is waiting for you with another brilliant workout at 9am, so head straight over to his YouTube page!

Have you been listening to David Walliams at 11am each day? Remember to tune in to hear David Walliams read 20 minutes of ‘Fing’.  https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/

Today tasks:

Maths – How did you find the ‘Making a whole’ unit yesterday?  Today, we would like to move onto writing decimals.  We had a go at writing decimals whilst we were at school, so hopefully some of this lesson you will already be familiar with.  If you click on the following link and then select ‘Summer Term Week 1’ and then watch the video clip which is part of lesson 2 ‘Writing decimals’.  It would be useful for you to open the worksheet at the same time, as the video refers to this throughout.  You could choose to print this or write the answers in your blue book.  There is also a section which shares the answers, so once you are finished you could then mark your own work. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

Again, it might be a good idea for you to draw your own place value grid, just like we would at school to help you when working with decimal numbers.

English – Write down the letter ‘q’… What sound does this make?  Can you think of any words that begin with this sound, have this sound in the middle, or end in this sound? What do you know about the letter ‘q’?  When writing a word, which letters do you think can come before it?  Which letters can come after it?

Below is a list of words which all contain the letter ‘q’.  How could you group these words? Can you sort these words into three groups?

Queen

Antique

Question

Equal

Sequence

Quiz

Cheque

You could have grouped the words into ones which start with ‘q’, ones with ‘q’ in the middle and ones with ‘q’ towards the end.   Can you now look at those words above and make a list of the letters that come before and after the ‘q’ in each word?

Hopefully you will have noticed that the letter ‘q’ is always followed by the letter ‘u’. The letters that can come before ‘q’ are vowels and ‘n’ and ‘s’.

When ‘qu’ is near the end of the word, which letter always follows?…….. It’s the letter ‘e’.  You will see that words like ‘antique’ and ‘cheque’ end with a ‘que’.

We are just going to focus on words that end with a ‘que’.  Can you think of any more words that end like this?

If you click on this link, you will find lots of words which end with ‘que’, read them, listen to them being read out and then read them in the sentence.  Could you ask your grown up to help you figure out their definition?  Or you could have a look online.  Stay on this site and click the heading ‘learn’ to practise spelling these words.  Then you can click on ‘games’ for further practise.  These games are free, if you click on one and then press ‘Play single player’.https://www.spellzone.com/word_lists/list-98.htm

Now, we would like you to open the image attached ‘Don’t Say the Word’ and play the game with a family member. Did you manage to guess the words correctly?

Afternoon tasks – So far, you have listened to a diary entry, an extract from Oliver Twist, and a poem about a Victorian child…. Miss Tuart would like to share a non-fiction text with you today and I think you will be shocked when hearing some of the facts.  Head to your cosy spot and listen now! https://youtu.be/iUrwR3uxFQE

Option one: Think about the setting of the Victorian schools.  What can be seen? What can be heard? What can be felt? Use your creative skills to recreate this setting. You may wish to:

  • Draw the setting in coloured pens, pencils, paints or crayons- could you even chalk it in your garden or in the path outside?
  • Build the setting as either a model using craft items or using items around your home as though it was a theatre play setting you were creating.
  • Use your computer skills to build the setting or draw it using tools on PurpleMash.

Option two: Think about the Victorian children… What do they look like? How do they behave?  How do you think they felt whilst at school?  You may wish to…

Which activities will you choose?  Remember to share all the fun that you get up to!  Miss Whaley and Miss Conway 😊 X

 

Year 5

Year 5 -Thursday 30th April

🌈Morning Year 5! 🌈 Thank you to everyone who has been able to post a comment or message us about their tasks – it’s really lovely to see and hear what you are all up to, since you are unable to tell us your exciting stories at school. Remember, whether you have conquered all of the Maths challenges, have got lost in a book for 20 minutes, or enjoyed a family meal around the dining table together, please feel free to share that with us. Seeing you makes us smile 😊. Let’s get on it this morning and make our morning workout with Joe count 💪… 

Today’s Tasks

Maths

Your Maths lesson today is ‘Lesson 4 – Subtracting decimals with a different number of decimal places’. Remember to keep your place value lined up accurately and use the place holder zero to fill in any gaps. Don’t worry if you find any of these tricky – miss a question out if you like, and feel free to try it again later or leave it! 😊 To access, follow: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

Challenge

In 2017, there were 798,307 visitors at Green Park Zoo. In 2018, there is an increase of 16,858 visitors. How many visitors are there in 2018?

What number do you add to 12.21 to get 27.48?

Use the long method to try: 345 x 75 (don’t forget your place holder zero and take your time! This would be a 2 mark question in Arithmetic!)

Use the bus stop method to try: 7,939 ÷ 6 (Be careful with your carrying and show your remainder how you like).

English

Today you will be following a SpaG lesson all about parenthesis! We love parenthesis 😊.

Your link is here : https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/setting-description-spag-focus-parenthesis-year-5-wk1-4/#

Follow the lesson as a refresher to your knowledge and work alongside the teacher to identify parenthesis in the text. Remember it can take three forms: brackets () dashes – – and commas ,   ,. Also don’t forget that if you use parenthesis at the end of a sentence and you are using dashes or commas, you don’t use the end one – you use a full stop only..!

The activity is not marked by the teacher as this is your own written work. Perhaps a grown up might be able to help you check it over. Don’t worry if not – it is all good practice!

Have fun with the spellings – you could always use some of our spelling activities to help learn them.

 

Afternoon – Reading

Welcome to the world of Dax Jones, a half ordinary, half extraordinary boy, who has the ability to shapeshift. He attends a school for children with special abilities and has to maintain his secrecy… Dax lives in an unremarkable and relatively standard house and we are first introduced to him when he is spending time in his back garden thinking about his attitude… https://youtu.be/CABJT9p4xAg

Once you have listened to Mrs Berry’s wonderful reading, you can complete one, or both of, these tasks:

Option one: Think about the setting which the text is set in. Where is it? What can be seen? What can be heard? What can be felt? Use your creative skills to recreate this setting by:

  • Drawing the setting in coloured pens, pencils, paints or crayons- could you even chalk it in your garden or in the path outside?
  • Building the setting as either a model using craft items or using items around your home as though it was a theatre play setting you were creating.
  • Using your computer skills to build the setting or draw it using tools on Purple Mash.

Option two: Think about the character(s) that are involved in the text. Who are they? What do they look like? How do they behave? You may wish to:

  • Make a list of the character traits for Dax and Gina
  • Make a paper dolls chain of the characters and design them to fit the descriptions you heard in the text. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYXxoVbPzqI (you will need scissors and A4 paper or thin card)
  • Become an illustrator and draw the characters using pens, pencils, paints or crayons – could you even chalk them in your garden or on the path outside?

 

Read and Relax

You start the day exercising the body, now it’s time to end the day exercising the mind with a little reading! It’s been fantastic to see some of you have been able to log on to Accelerated Reader and take quizzes – remember to do so, you can access here on the first page of our website: http://www.dunstonhillcps.co.uk/

If you access Reading Plus with Mrs Ion in school, remember you can log on to practise your reading skills. We know Mrs Ion enjoys seeing your progress and loves to leave you a little message!

Have a great day – the most important thing is to enjoy yourself – being happy today is all that matters so keep smiling 😊 love Miss Ornsby and Mrs Berry xxx
