RWI Phonics:

Today’s sound is ‘y’. Can you hear the sound bouncing?

YouTube Ruth Miskin Training website:

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

 

Phonics activity: finding something yellow!

When thinking about the sound ‘y’ I always think of the colour y,y,yellow! Can you find some yellow things in your house? When you find them make the sound! Perhaps when you are out for a walk you might spot some yellow things too, we like to look for yellow cars! Or you might find some other things that start with ‘y’. Maybe you’ll have a y,y,y, yoghurt today!

 

Maths activity: Number Blocks

The Number Blocks are on another adventure! This time they try to have picnic, but what has happened to one of the flapjacks?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b08cr24d/numberblocks-series-1-how-to-count

Can you do some counting today just like the Number Blocks? Remember to touch the object each time you say a number. Let us know what you have been counting!

Talent week task:

We know many of you enjoyed ‘The Great Dunston Bake Off ‘ last half term and are now enjoying ‘Come Dine with Dunston’ this half term. So, why don’t you put your aprons on and share your baking talents with us! Remember to do this with your grown-up and take photos of you baking and of your final delight. We are looking forward to seeing what mouth-watering recipes you will be making today!

Reception

Tuesday 30th June

Good morning Reception. Today is assembly day! Don’t forget to log on to Facebook at 10.30 am to sing along! Miss Cavanagh and the children in school will be joining in too!! Thank you for all of your Facebook posts yesterday! Some super creations! 😊

Phonics:

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

Set 2 sound (repeated) is: ir

RWI Read and Hold a sentence 1 continue today. This work encourages reading and writing practice for children reading set 1 sounds confidently and learning Set 2 sounds.

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

An alternative activity: Have a game of skittles. Ask your grown up to write words or sounds on the bottles. When you knock them over have a go at saying the sounds or reading the words. If you don’t have skittles use empty bottles you might have in your recycling!

Writing

Oliver didn’t know he liked different vegetables until he tried them in the story. Today we would like you to try some new vegetables. Can you make a table and write whether you liked or disliked the vegetable in the right column? Maybe you could write a sentence to say which vegetable you liked the best and why. Miss Cavanagh’s favourite is broccoli because it is really crunchy.

Maths:

Today we would like you to have a little game of “We went to the market…” you have to add each item on to the last one and see how many you remember. Follow the link to help with ideas. https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Day-2-Olivers-Vegetables.pdf  There are many different ways you can see numbers in ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ can you find things to count. It might be the chips, or the onions in the pictures. Look at the pictures in the link and see what you can find and how many there are.

Talent week activities:

We know many of you enjoyed ‘The Great Dunston Bake Off ‘ last half term and are now enjoying ‘Come Dine with Dunston’ this half term. So, why don’t you put your aprons on and share your baking talents with us! Remember to do this with your grown-up and take photos of you baking and of your final delight.

Year 1

Year 1 Tuesday 30th June 

🌞 Happy Tuesday, Year 1! 🌞 We are so proud of you for trying so hard with the work we are setting you.  

Remember, today is Tuesday which means it is assembly day! Tune in to our Facebook live assembly at 10:30 this morning. We have had so much fun the last few weeks singing along with Mr Sutherland 🎵 Let us know you are watching in the comments for a special shout out!  

Today’s tasks:  

Maths – 
Today, we are going to be recognising coins! Here is today’s lesson:
Summer Term – Week 10 (w/c 29th June) – Lesson 2
You need to click the video that says ‘Lesson 2 – Recognising coins’
https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ 

Before you start, do you have any coins in your house that you could look at? If you do, explore these with your grownup. Which is the biggest coin? What is its value? What does it feel like? Which is the smallest coin? Some coins are bigger and thicker than others, some are shaped differently, coins are also different colours.  

It is important to remember that the size of a coin is different to the value of a coin. For example, a 2p is bigger than a 5p in size but smaller in value. 

It would be great if you had one of each coin at home so that you can familiarise yourself with them and use them to help you during the video. As always, 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-5-D1-Recognising-coins-2020 

Extra Challenge
If you have completed the worksheets and want an extra challenge, why not create a mini shop with items you find around your house. You could price each item and take turns with your grownup of being the shopper and the shopkeeper. Give yourself a budget. How many items can you buy? Would you need any change? 
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……. ‘Sharing a Shell’ by Julia Donaldson 
If you don’t have the story at home, you can watch it on YouTube:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpJumAZx1t8 

Did you enjoy your first read of the story yesterday? It was lovely that they could all share the shell in the end. 

Today’s task: A few more friends want to join the hermit crab…see if you can design an even bigger shell for the hermit crab and his friends. You could do this as a drawing, painting, use junk model materials, clay, playdough, or anything else you have at home! Be as creative as you can 🎨 Then, either add labels to it or write a few sentences to describe the new design.  We can’t wait to see what you come up with! 

Afternoon
What a great start to ⭐Talent Week! 

Did you see our ‘DHCPS Got Talent’ video of the staff showcasing their talents? We had so much fun! We know many of you enjoyed ‘The Great Dunston Bake Off’ last half term and are now enjoying ‘Come Dine with Dunston’ this half term. So, why don’t you put your aprons on and share your baking talents with us! Remember to do this with your grown-up and take photos of you baking and of your final delight. We are looking forward to seeing what mouth-watering recipes you will be making today!

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 day! 🌈

Year 2

Tuesday 30th June

Good morning Year 2, we hope you enjoyed yesterday’s tasks. We hope that you especially enjoyed the crafting activities that you could do yesterday afternoon – we know that we have some really creative Year 2s so we are sure that you came up with some amazing things! You will be pleased to know that Mr Sutherland is doing another live assembly on facebook today at 10.30am and we really hope you can join us.

Let’s get off to an active start by having a little dance, choose your favourite Just Dance. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChIjW4BWKLqpojTrS_tX0mg

Daily Tasks

Maths – Today, we are continuing with our theme of measuring and we are going to measure in grams. If you bake at home, you might have come across grams – it is a unit of measurement to measure the mass of items. Grams tend to measure quite small masses – for example, a chocolate bar could be around 50g. You might count in 2s, 5s and 10s skills to read scales accurately because different scales come with different intervals.

Follow this link https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ and click on ‘Summer Term – Week 10 (w/c 29th July)’ and then ‘Lesson 1 – measure mass in grams.’ Watch the video and then open your worksheet (which is attached here Lesson 1 – Measure mass in grams). Along with your worksheet, there is a top tips sheet to help you Top tips for measuring grams. The top tips sheet will especially help you with question 6 and we would love to see your answers to this tricky problem! Add photos of your working out to our Facebook post if you manage to solve it.

If you are done and have some scales at home, why not work with an adult at home to try measuring some of your household items in grams? This is a really practical skill, which might help you with your afternoon activities today, too!

English  – We know how imaginative and creative you all are so you will be great with today’s work.

Clary, Pepper and Jas (the elves from yesterday’s story) have lots of elf friends who like to help people too:

✓ Jolly and Merry help Father Christmas

✓ Cupcake and Cookie help Mr & Mrs Pie in their bakery

Can you make a story up about some elves that help people? Today is about planning your story. We have attached a planning sheet here if you would prefer to write on that The Elves and the planning sheet. If not just write these headings down and write your ideas underneath.

  • Give your story a title – The Elves and the ________________
  • What are the names of the elves (try to link their names to the people they help)
  • Who do they help?
  • How do they help?
  • Do they get anything in return?
  • Where do the elves go in the end?

Remember today you are just coming up with a plan of your ideas, you can write the story tomorrow.

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 –

We know many of you enjoyed ‘The Great Dunston Bake Off ‘ last half term and are now enjoying ‘Come Dine with Dunston’ this half term. So, why don’t you put your aprons on and share your baking talents with us! Remember to do this with your grown-up and take photos of you baking and of your final delight.

For those of you who would normally do Lexia in school (your password and username will be in your packs if you did), why not go on Lexia today? For those of you who take Accelerated Reader quizzes, see how much of your target you can reach!

Here is the link for Chapter 11 of ‘The Boy who Grew Dragons’ for those of you who want to find out what happens next! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzrh72BvTLc&list=PLd5OvpigUuUH6xXqFd8QfUQdD4RT1uFYr&index=14

We can’t wait to see what you create this afternoon so please share these with us. Have a terrific Tuesday, Year 2!

Mrs Bainbridge and Miss Jobey

Year 3

Year 3 Tuesday 30th June 

Howdy year 3! Hope you’re all well and dandy 😊 Did you get a chance to make anything yesterday afternoon? We took a leaf out of Zeynep’s book and made paper animals out of our handprints – lots of fish! Their tails were very flouncy from the finger shapes.  Hope you liked Mrs Mc’s 3pm finger puppet post – let us know if you’ve been practising your sewing since we made those pencil cases and post some photos in the comments section. And don’t forget to join us for Mr Sutherland’s live singing assembly at 10:30 today – see you there!

Today’s tasks:   

Maths – Today, we will be using the White Rose Hub website and using the home learning lessons again.  Click onto the link https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Y3-Week-7-Alternative-Plan.pdf and you will see a table with 4 lessons focusing on length. These are the lessons we are going to be using for the rest of this week. Today, we would like you to click on the video link for the first lesson – Measure Length. The teacher will begin by showing you a ruler and he will explain that we are going to be measuring in cm. You should already be familiar with using a ruler but the teacher will model this to you, to help remind you. Pause the video when you are told to do so, for you to have a go. Don’t be tricked out when the line doesn’t start at 0cm! He will them introduce you to mm (millimetres). Watch the video carefully and do the questions in the activity when the teacher tells you to. These are attached in your email and they are also below. 

Lesson 1 – Measure length 2019

English – Now it’s time for you to think about writing some new information about trolls and helping out Professor Folklore. In ‘The truth About Trolls’, Professor Folklore used questions as subheadings to help organise his writing and make it easier for the reader. Here is the underlying structure of the professor’s information text about trolls. 

  • Introduction
  • What do trolls look like?
  • Where do trolls live?
  • What do trolls eat?
  • Did you know? (save your best facts for last)

What other subheadings might you write about? There are some examples in today’s attachment. Use the planner on the attachment or write out your own to plan your information text about trolls. This is just some jotting of your ideas; you don’t need to write in full sentences. Remember – you are the new expert! English Tuesday 30.6.2020 – Trolls – Planning

For the main lesson, we are revising how we compare and order fractions. 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/413668473

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

English:

This week is SPaG week! There are 5 tasks for you to choose from. If you are in school you only need to complete 3 day’s worth of tasks – you can choose from any of the days. These are all SPaG areas you have covered in school before – great revision ready for secondary school! Please use your blue jotter to record your work 😊

Day 1 – Select the correct relative pronoun to create sentences with relative clauses. The instructions and an example are on the sheet. Please don’t forget to use a comma!

Day 2 – Recognising non-standard English. Look at the verbs to help you for this activity. For example: ‘I done my homework’ is non-standard English. It should be either, ‘I have done my homework.’ or ‘I did my homework.’

Day 3 – Determiners. A determiner comes before a noun and tells you something about the noun. For example: the number of something or who owns something. E.g ‘There were thirty children.’ Thirty is the determiner as it tells us how many children. ‘Our classroom was stifling hot.’ Our is the determiner.

Day 4 – Prepositions. There are 3 types of preposition: those that tell us the time something happened e.g before or at noon, those that tell us where something is e.g behind or under and those that are causal e.g because of or due to the fact. There are three activities to complete today and the answers are on the final sheet. If you would like to challenge yourself miss our activity 2 and only do 1 and 3.

Day 5 – Semi-colons. A semi colon is used to join to main clauses together that are linked to each other. A semi colon can often replace a conjunction. For example: ‘Mrs Moorhead likes dogs and she has one called Lola.’ We replace ‘and’ with a semi colon. ‘Mrs Moorhead likes dogs; she has one called Lola.’
