Arts Week: (Please see photo examples from Facebook/Emails)

Poppies!

A poppy is a special flower that helps us remember the many important people who helped to keep us safe a long time ago. The poppy flower also helps us to say thank you to these special people. Mrs Bootland and her children made some potato print poppies to celebrate tomorrows VE Day. We are going to put them in our window so people can see them as they walk past. All you need is red and black paint and a potato cut in half, if you don’t have paints you could always draw some poppies. See the photograph below. We would love to see your creations!

Whole School toilet roll challenge:

Toilet roll challenge – don’t worry! You don’t actually need the toilet roll for this – just the tube (kitchen roll tube is equally as good and can be cut in half for brothers and sisters 😀 ). Today, we’d like to see how you can create art from a toilet roll tube. Have a look at the BBC article here to get some inspiration. Don’t forget to share your art in the comments section!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-norfolk

or Google search ‘things made from toilet rolls’ or ‘3D art made from toilet rolls’ or ‘sculpture made from toilet rolls’ for inspiration and some instructions, or, just use your own creativity.

If you do not have glue, remember you can cut slots to join card together.

Music:

We are looking forward to our music time! We will normally do this on a Friday but because it’s a bank holiday tomorrow we will do it today instead! We hope you enjoy! Pinchy Parrot is looking forward to seeing you all! We would love your grown-up to take videos or photographs of you joining in and post them in our comments box.

Have a gorgeous weekend Nursery – let’s hope the sun stays out! We can’t wait to see your busy photographs.

Have fun!

Reception

Reception – Thursday 7th May

Good morning Reception! We were lucky with another sunny day yesterday and it was lovely to see some of you enjoying the sunshine. Another great day of home learning. We loved seeing all of your work and the singing really made us smile! You’re all super stars!

Phonics and English: Set one sound is ‘z’ and set two sound is ‘oy’ Here is the link you will need: https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/

Maths and writing together: Today is party time in your writing and maths session! Today we would like you to plan and set up a picnic party. This might be with real food for your family or it could be pretend food for your toys. Write a list of what you will have at your party. Then think about how many plates/napkins/cups you will need. When setting up your picnic think about how you will share the food. Will you half it? Here is the link for more details:  https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Day-4-Hungry-Caterpillar.pdf

Year 1

Year 1  7th May 

Happy Thursday Year 1! How are you feeling today? 🌞

Today is the last day of posts from us this week, because tomorrow is a special day! Does anyone know why it is special? This Horrible Histories video gives you an idea! https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/watch/horrible-histories-songs-ve-day-song
Let us know if you are doing anything to celebrate!  

White Rose will be posting some recipes involving some Maths – here are the ingredients in case you want to join in: https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Classroom-Kitchen-Ingredients-Lists-1.pdf  

Today’s tasks:  

Maths –  

For Maths today, we are working on adding more and counting on. 

Today’s lesson is Summer Term – Week 3, Lesson 4.  

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ 

It might be useful for you to make your own numberline to 20 (starting at 1) and 2 tens frames to help you. (We’ve attached a photo to show grown-ups).
Have some pencils and paper ready for the video, too 😊 

 

Listen carefully to the lesson. Remember – you can pause or rewatch it as much as you like! We know this can be a little tricky but give it your best try! 
Grown-ups, if your child finds this challenging, try using objects to do this practically. 
After the video, you can try the activity sheet or head to BBC Bitesize where the daily lesson should also be linked to this 😊
https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons 

For Q3, have a little think.. Which method do you prefer? Ron’s or Mo’s? Can you tell your grown-up why? 

English –  

RWInc. Time! 

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

We hope you enjoyed finding out some interesting fact about whales yesterday! Miss Bunce and Miss Thompson loved seeing what you discovered. Miss Bunce’s favourite fact is that some male whales can sing! Miss Thompson’s favourite fact is that some whales sleep upright! You can see this in the photo, it’s incredible!

Today, we would like you to create a fact file about whales, using the information you found out yesterday. We have already written a fact file in school; do you remember writing one about reindeer? 

We would like you to write your information in full sentences. You might even try and put the information you have found out into different sections. For example, you could have a section about the different types of whales, another about what they look like, what they eat and another section about where they live. You could even draw some pictures, too! 🐋
As always, use your sound mats to help you, and remember those capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. 

Afternoon  

Art-
For today’s challenge, you have two choices! Or, if you are feeling ambitious, you could even try both!

Option 1- 

Toilet roll challenge – don’t worry! You don’t actually need the toilet roll for this – just the tube (kitchen roll tube is equally as good and can be cut in half for brothers and sisters 😊
Today, we’d like to see how you can create art from a toilet roll tube. Have a look at the BBC article here to get some inspiration. Don’t forget to share your art in the comments section! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-norfolk-52295494?fbclid=IwAR0-Nk1XLziW_Ezz93_UaywxMYLecuT-oSdQNNl3cEGtKPC7c8yJ4HcqzCA 
You could also Google search ‘things made from toilet rolls’, ‘3d art made from toilet rolls’ or ‘sculpture made from toilet rolls’ for inspiration and some instructions, or, just use your own creativity. 

(If you do not have glue, remember you can cut slots to join card together.)

Option 2-
Think of one of your favourite stories. Who are the main characters in it? Then, we would like you to create your own finger puppets of some of the characters! Google has lots of ideas as to how to make these, try searching ‘DIY finger puppets’.
This video is one option: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kt_iBqXIOw We suggest a grown-up cuts the finger holes if you make them like this, or you could make them like little hats for your fingers!

You could even make a finger puppet theatre and retell the story to your grown-ups!

We can’t wait to see your creations.

Reading 

Remember to keep up with your home reading! We do hope you are enjoying being able to find your books online. BBC iPlayer also has lots of Julia Donaldson books available, or you could choose an eBook from here:
https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/literacy/story-resources/story-books-ebooks 

Computing and Internet Safety 

We know some of you loved exploring the tasks last week. This weekend, why not try week 2 to remind you how to stay safe online?https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/globalassets/thinkuknow/documents/thinkuknow/parents/pdf/thinkuknow-5-7s-home-activity-sheet-2.pdf
This links to the storybook mentioned in Activity 1:

Year 2

Year 2      7th May 

It’s our final day of posts this week, Year 2, as tomorrow is Bank Holiday and a special anniversary. There will be a post tonight that explains a bit more about it.  

Wake up with Joe and his supply teacher at 9am! We wonder if they will do heads or tails, or higher or lower, or fancy dress today?  

Daily tasks –  

Maths – Today’s addition and subtraction task is going to make you very confident ahead of next week’s work. Follow the link https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ and click on ‘Summer Term – Week 3 (w/c 4th May)’ then on ‘Lesson Four – add and subtract ones.’ After watching the video have a go at answering the questions, click on ‘get the activity’. We think that you’re going to be very confident with today’s work already!   

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

  1. Complete the missing numbers  23, ___, 25, ____, ____, 28, ____, ____, 31 
  1. Complete the missing numbers 47, ___, 45, ____, ____, ____, ____, ____, 39 
  1. I make a number with 3 tens and 4 ones. What is my number? I add one more ten. What is my new number?  
  1. 14 + 1 = ____ 
  1. 19 – 1= _____ 
  1. 54 + 1 = ____ 
  1. 18 = 19 – ____ 
  1. ____ = 89 – 1  

English – We are going to revise our knowledge of homophones today. Start by following this link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zqhpk2p/articles/zc84cwx  There are a few short videos to watch, which explain what a homophone is, in case you can’t quite remember. If you scroll down, there is a short quiz to take also.  

Next, follow this link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zqhpk2p/articles/zc4jpbk which will put your new knowledge to the test! You’re going to look at three homophones – to, too and two! There are short video clips to explain the difference between them and again a quiz. Then, we would like you to write three sentences, using each of the homophones. For example: I go to the park. I’d like to go too. Maybe the two of us can go. These are very simple sentences – we think that you can do much better! Show us in the comments so we can see just how brilliant your sentences will be.  

Phonics – Read Write Inc daily lessons can be watched from 10.30 am onwards everyday – click on this link  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ 

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, think about how many words you can make using different special friends for the sound ‘i’. Try to think of 3-5 words for each special friend: i-e, igh, ie 

Afternoon  

Art – There are two options for today’s art activity.  

Option 1: Toilet roll challenge – don’t worry! You don’t actually need the toilet roll for this – just the tube (kitchen roll tube is equally as good and can be cut in half for brothers and sisters). Today, we’d like to see how you can create art from a toilet roll tube. Have a look at the BBC article here to get some inspiration. Don’t forget to share your art in the comments section! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-norfolk-52295494?fbclid=IwAR0-Nk1XLziW_Ezz93_UaywxMYLecuT-oSdQNNl3cEGtKPC7c8yJ4HcqzCA or Google search ‘things made from toilet rolls’ or ‘3d art made from toilet rolls’ or ‘sculpture made from toilet rolls’ for inspiration and some instructions, or, just use your own creativity. We’ve added some pictures at the bottom of this post. A top tip is that if you do not have glue, remember you can cut slots to join card together. 

Option 2: We’d like you to use…your hands! Palm art is a really fun way to use your hands to make amazing pictures. There are lots of ideas on this video (30 in fact) for you to follow along with https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ol7TWTvkZo  

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. This week is week 2. Click on the link below then read Activity 1: Read Jessie & Friends: Sharing Pictures – The Storybook. 

https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/globalassets/thinkuknow/documents/thinkuknow/parents/pdf/thinkuknow-5-7s-home-activity-sheet-2.pdf    

We hope that you have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend, Year 2. There will be some special VE-Day activities tomorrow but we will be back on Monday. Stay safe and enjoy your weekend.  

From Mrs Bainbridge and Miss Jobey 

Year 3

Year 3 Thursday 7th May 

Hi everyone! Can we start by thanking you for your amazing efforts this week in all subjects and particularly in art. It has been an absolute pleasure seeing your amazing creativity come out with the, in some cases limited, resources you have at home. Join in with the Joe Wicks workout at 9am to kickstart your Thursday. Remember – there are no tasks set tomorrow as it’s a bank holiday. 

Today’s tasks: 

Maths– https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/   Summer term – week 1 (w/c 20 April) -Equivalent – Lesson 4 – order fractions. Start with Flashback 4 and make sure you pause the video to solve the questions before the answers are shown. Today’s Maths focus is ordering fractions. To help you, you will need to remember when the denominators are the same, the greater the numerator, the greater the fraction and when the numerators are the same, the smaller the denominator, the greater the fraction.  Watch the video carefully and pause it when you are told to do so.  Draw and answer the questions in your books or on paper. 

Challenge! 

Jack says, “When the denominators are the same, the larger the numerator, the smaller the fraction.” 

Is Jack correct? Prove it. 

English – Finish off your newspaper reports if you didn’t get them done yesterday and post them in the comments section.  

Log on to Purple Mash and play the game on your 2do list called ‘Mark wants a chicken’. In this game, you get to practise putting in speech punctuation to sentences where it has been missed. If you don’t get it right first time, don’t worry! Try it again to improve your score 😊  

Afternoon 

Option 1: Whole school toilet roll challenge – don’t worry! You don’t actually need the toilet roll for this – just the tube (kitchen roll tube is equally as good and can be cut in half for brothers and sisters to use 😀 ). Today, we’d like to see how you can create art from a toilet roll tube. Have a look at the BBC article here to get some inspiration. Don’t forget to share your art in the comments section! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-norfolk-52295494?fbclid=IwAR0-Nk1XLziW_Ezz93_UaywxMYLecuT-oSdQNNl3cEGtKPC7c8yJ4HcqzCA or Google search ‘things made from toilet rolls’ / ‘3d art made from toilet rolls’ / ‘sculpture made from toilet rolls’ for inspiration and some instructions, or, just use your own creativity! [If you do not have glue, remember you can cut slots to join card together.] 

Option 2: Create a piece of art/craft work to help celebrate the anniversary of VE Day tomorrow. You could make bunting by printing pictures or messages onto squares or triangles and stick them to some string. Maybe you could make a photomontage of images of people celebrating over the years. Perhaps you can make an art attack to celebrate. Whatever you do, enjoy it! And share your photos in the comments section.

Year 5

Year 5 – Thursday 7th May 

Gooood Morning Year 5! 🌞 The sun is certainly out in full force today – what a way to end our working week! Make sure you get some fresh air – you could even complete some of your tasks outside today. As part of ‘Meaningful May’, today’s challenge is to let someone know how much they mean to you – it could be a simple hug, a phone call or maybe an act of kindness 😊. What will you do? 

Today’s Tasks 

Maths 

Today’s lesson is another recap – dividing with remainders (something we know all of you are fantastic at!). To access, click here: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/ You will need ‘Summer Term – Week 3 (w/c 4th May)’ and it is ‘Lesson 3 – Divide with remainders’. I wonder if you can remember which number is the dividend, the quotient and the divisor! 😊 

Challenge 

What is 603,602 written in words? 

A company buys a new machine that costs £64,529. They also have to pay £12,906 in taxes and fees. What is the total cost of the new machine? 

What is 1/2 + 1/8? (Remember to make your denominators the same before you add!)  

Draw a place value chart to help you answer: 34 x 10, 278 x 100 and 9.8 x 100  

Remember! Log onto TTRS for 10-15 minutes. This week, it’s a Boys Vs Girls battle! Let’s keep this up all week and see which class will be the winners! To access, click here: https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student/1692   

 This battle will continue over the weekend and we will announce the winners on Monday’s post! Currently the boys are in the lead… can the girls beat them?    

English 

As tomorrow is a bank holiday, there will not be a separate lesson therefore you might want to complete Friday’s session as an extra challenge! As always, there is absolutely no pressure but we know you have spent all week planning your piece of writing and you will be excited to get creative!  

So, today’s first session is our SPaG lesson with Mrs Barr and we are looking at relative clauses in a little more detail. The link to the lesson is:  https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/character-description-spag-focus-relative-clause-year-5-wk2-4 

You will work through some examples which explain how to spot a relative clause, and then you will have a try yourself.  

The main activity asks you to write some sentences about a character which a contain a relative clause. There are some example characters for you to use – or you can create your very own. You could even use a character from a book that you have enjoyed. Let your imagination run wild!  

To help you out, Mrs Barr has included some handy sentence starters which should start you off nicely. Mrs Berry and Miss Ornbsy have spotted a mistake on slide – there is a missing possessive apostrophe – see if you can spot it too 😊  

When you are done – don’t forget to keep working on those spellings! 

Challenge 

Mr Emmerson, like last week, will help you pull together all of your learning from this week to help you to write your very own character description. The link to the lesson is here : https://www.thenational.academy/year-5/english/character-description-write-a-character-description-year-5-wk2-5  

 We hope you have managed to think of a character that you like and that excites you – this makes your writing far more fun!   

 Don’t forget – it is spelling quiz first. Even if you haven’t managed to learn them well – give them a try – you never know! Good luck 😊    

Mr Emmerson will take another look at the good example and you can ‘magpie’ some words or phrases that you like. As we know with our writing – it is always really important to plan what we are going to write. You can pause the video at any time to write any ideas down that you like. You will be asked to write some sentences to start you off, and there are some great words on screen to help. We do not want you to worry at all about this. You will have done brilliantly by following the lessons all week, and this is just an opportunity for you to have a try. Take your time and come back to it of you wish – or just write some sentences. If you would like to share any of your work – you could post a pic on our FB page 😊   

Afternoon – Art 

OPTION 1:  

Toilet roll challenge – don’t worry! You don’t actually need the toilet roll for this – just the tube (kitchen roll tube is equally as good and can be cut in half for brothers and sisters). Today, we’d like to see how you can create art from a toilet roll tube. Have a look at the BBC article here to get some inspiration. Don’t forget to share your art in the comments section! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-norfolk-52295494?fbclid=IwAR0-Nk1XLziW_Ezz93_UaywxMYLecuT-oSdQNNl3cEGtKPC7c8yJ4HcqzCA or Google search ‘things made from toilet rolls’ or ‘3d art made from toilet rolls’ or ‘sculpture made from toilet rolls’ for inspiration and some instructions, or, just use your own creativity. (If you do not have glue, remember you can cut slots to join card together.)  

OPTION 2: 

We love this idea! Why not learn to draw a scene using vanishing point perspective? In this video you will learn how to draw a city scene which is really impressive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twcFW0RyOO8 

All you need is a blank piece of paper, a pencil and an eraser. Have a go and post your fantastic creations in the comments. 

Read and Relax 

It’s been amazing to see and hear about all of the lovely reading that has been going on! As it is the end of the week, we thought you might like something a little different. Here, you can listen to Daniel Radcliffe reading Chapter 1 of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: https://www.wizardingworld.com/chapters/reading-the-boy-who-lived?utm_medium=tweet&utm_source=wwd&utm_campaign=hpah-video-chap1  🧙 

We hope you have a lovely (extra-long) weekend and we will be back with you all on Monday! Keep an eye out for some exciting VE day activities tomorrow 😊. Remember to stay safe! We miss you all, love Miss Ornsby and Mrs Berry xxx

Toilet roll challenge – don’t worry! You don’t actually need the toilet roll for this – just the tube (kitchen roll tube is equally as good and can be cut in half for brothers and sisters 😀 ). Today, we’d like to see how you can create art from a toilet roll tube. Have a look at the BBC article here to get some inspiration. Don’t forget to share your art in the comments section! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-norfolk-52295494?fbclid=IwAR0-Nk1XLziW_Ezz93_UaywxMYLecuT-oSdQNNl3cEGtKPC7c8yJ4HcqzCA or Google search ‘things made from toilet rolls’ or ‘3d art made from toilet rolls’ or ‘sculpture made from toilet rolls’ for inspiration and some instructions, or, just use your own creativity.

If you do not have glue, remember you can cut slots to join card together.

OPTION 2:

Look at the work of Rene Magritte… his witty, thought-provoking images…

Can you take a photo of yourself – obscuring your face with an object?

Don’t forget to take photos of your work and post them on our Facebook page.

Happy Thursday Year 6 and have a great bank holiday. We are very sad we can’t celebrate VE day with you! – Love Miss Parkin and Miss Reay.
