Home Learning Activities Week 5 (3.5.20)

A big thank you for all the photos you sent in, I loved seeing you all. Hope you all enjoyed the staff video. On to this weeks work....

White Rose Maths have provided PowerPoints and activities for daily math lessons based on our current topic - Click here for Summer week 3

You can do your daily phonics work by visiting www.phonicsplay.co.uk. The username is march20 and the password is home. Remember we are doing phase 5 activities. I know Mrs Wyatt has also sent an email out explaining where you can find more phonics activities from the Department for Education.

English - Supertato is back to save the day again and this time he has brought some friends.This week we will be looking at Supertato Veggies Assemble. If you have the book at home go and find it but if not don't worry as we have recorded a special version of it at our house for you.

Day 1 - Watch the video or read your own version of the book. Notice each time you see a full stop, a question mark or an exclamation mark. Make a tally mark each time you see one and see which there are more of. Discuss why you think this is. When you have done this can you have a go at writing some question marks as they can be a bit tricky to write the correct way.

Day 2 - Either re-watch the  Supertato Veggies Assemble video or reread your own copy with a parent. Remind yourselves about how many full stops, question marks and exclamation marks there were. What is different about them shape wise or meaning wise? Which different jobs do they do? How is an exclamation mark more powerful than a full stop. Please visit: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zd63xyc/articles/zncgvk7 to find some superhero games about practicing punctuation. Please go into the game and select the Punctuation part of the village then select full stop. Tomorrow we can look at the question marks and on Thursday the exclamation marks; so don’t race ahead. Make sure you really spend time exploring and understanding one at a time.

If you want to you could write a sentence from the book with a full stop, another with an exclamation mark and another with a question mark.

Day 3 - Moving on to question marks. Again go to https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zd63xyc/articles/zncgvk7 to find some superhero games about practicing punctuation. Please go into the game and select the Punctuation part of the village then select question marks mistakes.

If you want to you could write a sentence not from the book with a full stop, another with an exclamation mark and another with a question mark.

Day 4 - Today we will focus on exclamation marks. Again go to https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zd63xyc/articles/zncgvk7 to find some superhero games about practising punctuation. Please go into the game and select the Punctuation part of the village then select exclamation marks Make sure you really spend time exploring and understanding one at a time.

  • Extension: If you want to you could write a sentence not from the book but one that Supertato might say if you were writing the book with a full stop, another with an exclamation mark and another with a question mark. Are we getting the hang of it now?

Friday is VE Day so i would like you to research what VE Day is all about with your parents. Could you make some bunting to hang up or some flags to wave? If you are lucky enough to have some flour in could you bake a cake. See how Kirklees are celebrating VE Day - https://www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/ve-day/your-ve-day.aspx

 

 Science – This week I would like you to learn to label the basic parts of a flower. Just using the 5 words: flower, petal, stem, leaf and root. If you go beyond this is messes up the teaching and learning requirements of year 2 and 3. You can record this as you wish. You may want to draw a picture and label it, pick a flower and stick it onto some paper and label it or use this sheet from Twinkl. You can also look at this powerpoint about plants.

 

Art - Please ask your parents for permission first but then can you use a potato to create your own Supertato. You can draw on the potato, use stickers or make your own outfit and then pin it to the potato. Once you have made Supertato could you create some other characters from the story or could you make up your own (This will link into next weeks work).

D&T/History/Geography - All of these areas are covered in Fridays work on VE Day. You might want to spread them out during the week so you are ready for the big day.

 

Home Learning  Activities Week 4 ( 27.4.20)

 Well here we go again and to make things worse it is supposed to rain this week! We are going to need some rain to help all of our plants grow though.  Please remember that there is no pressure to do the work set and you can do as much or as little of it as you wish. You can also do your own thing based on your child's interests if you are confident with that. I have received some lovely emails and it is great to find out what lots of you have been learning about. When we get back together you will be able to teach me about lots of fascinating subjects. Like last week I will list below what we would have been doing if we were at school and then below that i will leave a link to the BBC website which has set up a home learning section so you can pick and choose what to do.

Also please remember to send me a picture of yourself, so we can create a slideshow, to put on our website. I can't wait to see how you have all grown over the past month and I already have lovely photos of a few of you. I hope you are all safe and well and please remember to email me if i can help you in anyway ( david.moss@kirkleeseducation.uk).

White Rose Maths have provided PowerPoints and activities for daily math lessons based on our current topic - Click here for Summer week 2

You can do your daily phonics work by visiting www.phonicsplay.co.uk. The username is march20 and the password is home. Remember we are doing phase 5 activities. I know Mrs Wyatt has also sent an email out explaining where you can find more phonics activities from the Department for Education.

English - It is Supertato time! If you have the book at home go and find it but if not don't worry as we have recorded a special version of it at our house for you.

Day 1 - Watch the video or read your own version of the book.  Can you list the names of the characters in the story? Please sound out carefully listening to the phonemes you can hear in their names; remember it doesn’t matter if they aren’t spelt correctly. Can you draw the characters and write their names below?
Extension: If you have a copy of the book at home can you find their names in the book and check your spelling, but only if you can see the names to reference. (NB. There is no need for parents to correct spelling it’s only if the children can do this skill themselves. Remember sounding out is an important skill and there is a fine balance between correcting all and letting the children have a go)

 Day 2 - Either re-watch the Supertato video or reread your own copy with a parent. Then draw pictures of different types of fruit and vegetables and write their names underneath them. This is when you will need help from a grown up to help you learn the correct spellings. Start with the fruit and vegetables you have at home and then progress to having a look in books or on line at more unusual fruit and veg that you don’t normally have at home. How many can you draw and label.
Extension: If you want to you could write about your favourite fruit or vegetable.

Day 3 - Look at the comprehension attached about the story of Supertato and answer the questions. You may need some help from an adult to decode and read some of the words and to work out how to answer the questions. Some require you draw lines, tick or write some words. We are still learning different types of ‘test skills’ and I have made this with the skills in mind and therefore a little guidance about ‘how to’ would be much appreciated. You don’t have to print it out and can either type them on the word document or just discuss how you would record them by looking at the screen.
Extension: Think of your own question to ask about the last page of the book.

Day 4 - Can you draw a story map of the main events in the story Supertato like we have done for lots of other stories in the past? Start by drawing a wiggly line on your paper and draw what happens at the beginning. Then draw some other parts of the story at different stages down the line. Leave the writing as we can add that in tomorrow. Remember you don’t have to draw everything that happens. About 5 or 6 pictures will be enough.
Extension: Try to add some more detail, either more pictures or more detail within each picture.

Day 5 - Now I’d like you to add some words or sentences around each picture to explain what is going on. Remember the story ordering words we use in school: first, then, next, after that, later on, eventually, in the end, finally. Remember to keep your writing small and neat. Capital letters, full stops, exclamation marks, question marks. 
Extension: Add more detail. Try to use unusual words that will impress me. Remember adjectives eg small naughty pea.

Geography - This week I’d like you to write a letter or make a postcard to send to someone in your family that you haven’t seen for a long time. Write their address carefully. Can you remember what each line of the address stands for? Is the address similar to your address because they live close to you or is it different because they live far away? My postcode starts with HD9 but my mum’s postcode starts with DN20. Why do you think that is?

 Art - This half term we are going to learn about the artist Guiseppe Arcimboldo.
• He was an Italian artist who liked to make pictures of people, called portraits, using objects. Click here to see some of his pictures (you don’t need to print them out) He was asked to paint pictures of all the people who worked in the grand house where he worked as the artist. I wonder if you can tell which one is in charge of the books, the guns and fireplaces, the flower garden, the cooking of fish, the preparing of the vegetables, growing the vegetables in the garden.
When you’ve had a good look can you find some fruit and vegetables in your kitchen and make a face out of them? Take a photo. Then remember to carefully put the fruit and veg back where you got it from – or keep it out for D&T below…

D&T – With a grown up this week you could make a fruit salad. Talking through the health and safety rules of the kitchen can you peel, chop and prepare any fruits you are lucky enough to have at home (If that is just apples or just bananas then that is fine too) Remember to wash your hands first for at least 20 seconds, then talk about the sharp knives or peelers being used before beginning. Then give the children an opportunity to handle the tools as long as they are closely supervised of course. One completed eat, share and enjoy with your family. 

 PSHE - Look at Picture News Resource England 27th April and Resource 1 & 2 and talk about how using games on the internet and other games within our houses to help us continue learning. Discuss what is an appropriate time to spend on computer games. (No recording is necessary, a discussion is absolutely fine)

The Gruffalo

This half term we will be looking at Julia Donaldson's famous book "The Gruffalo." To start off the topic we acted out the story in the hall. In the afternoon we went on a Gruffalo quiz trail around the school grounds. We had to follow the clues and answer questions about the story. It was a lot of fun.

                     

                    

 Teddy Bears Picnic

 The children were surprised today to find that there were footprints running through our classroom and out of the door. After a discussion about what might have left them it was decided we should follow them.

       

So off we went and they led us to the most beautiful sight.

               

We couldn't believe our eyes! All the tables were set and there were teddies everywhere. The teddies had even left teddy crisps and biscuits for us to all eat.

      

Monkey see monkey do

This half term we have been looking at animals. One of the stories we have looked at is called Monkey see monkey do. The children were tasked with acting out the story and they had to decide what characters they would need and what role they would like to do. We then spent a session coming up with ideas and practicing.

The next day we revisited our ideas and tried to iron out any last minute changes before we acted out the story in front of the class.

To finish off the other children then critiqued what they had seen and they were all very positive about how well they had done.

 

School Trip

We had great fun on our school trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. We saw lots of animals and learnt lots of new facts about all of them. The children were really well behaved and all told us how much they had enjoyed it.
