Home Learning – week beginning 13 July 2020

Topic

Our final Traditional Tale is The Three Little Pigs.  Our two main topic activities this week will have a science focus looking at the properties of materials.  You can find out about materials on BBC Bitesize. The following two activities will be completed in class by those children attending school.  The first activity is using different materials to make a house and then seeing how long it takes for the wind to blow them down!  The second activity is thinking about the properties of materials and using your knowledge to design 2 houses.  In 1933 Walt Disney released an animation of the story which won an Oscar for the best animated short film.  You can watch the animation here.  You might also like to listen to the Three Little Pigs Rap or the Three Little Pigs 1980’s Rock Opera (songs and puppets).  You can find lots of pig craft ideas here or you might like to find out how to make a pig pom pom or a wind sock.  You might also like to try making some yummy sausage rolls.   This recipe will help you. There are some additional topic ideas here.

Phonics/Spelling/English

Our reading comprehension this week is the story of The Three Little Pigs.  Remember to read the story and the questions carefully.  For the first writing task this week you will need to be an estate agent and create an advert to sell one of the Little Pig’s houses.  For the second task you can take on the role of a reporter and create a newspaper report about the shocking events that happened to the Little Pigs!  Both of these activities will be completed in class by those children attending school.  Our spellings this week are all words that end in the suffix ‘er’.  You can print the spellings here or, if you prefer, you can write them in your book.  You can practise your high frequency spellings with the Little Birds online game.  You will need to click on each bird house to get a new spelling list.  Don’t forget to keep practising your reading and phonics too.  If you feel your brain needs a little wake up have a go at Boom Chicka Boom with Jack Hartmann.

Maths

In our Maths this week we are going to be looking at money.  There are three BBC Bitesize lessons that will help you with your Maths work.  The first is recognising coins, the second is recognising notes and the third is all about counting coins.  The following two activities will be completed in class by those children attending school.  The first activity is recognising and ordering coins and the second activity is adding coins together to find the total value.  There are also some challenge questions for you to have a go at.  You can practise recognising and counting coins with these online activities – spot the coin, sorting, counting and ordering coins and making the correct amount to buy things in the toy shop. Don’t forget to keep practising counting to 100 too (forwards and backwards).  You can click here to count backwards and exercise with Jack Hartmann.  I haven’t set any new homework on My Maths this week but check to see whether you have completed all the tasks that have been set and remember to complete the lesson before you tackle the task!

Parents

Please do e-mail me if you are unsure of any of the above learning activities or if you have any other questions or concerns and remember to only do as much as you – and the children – are comfortable doing each day.  There is absolutely no expectation that you need to complete all of the activities!  You are doing such an amazing job and you have just this week to go!  Please do continue sending photographs and emails to let me know what the children have been doing.  It is lovely having a chat with the children before the Zoom stories so, if you haven’t joined with a story yet but would like to do so, please do email me and let me know.

Finally – if you have any school library books at home please could these be returned to school before the end of term. Thank you.

Best wishes and stay safe.

Home Learning – week beginning 06 July 2020

Topic

Our Traditional Tale this week is Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  You can read the story here. Our two main topic activities this week have a PSHE focus.  The following two activities will be completed in class by those children attending school.  The first activity is thinking about the choices Goldilocks made when she went into the cottage and then designing a poster to help someone who is lost make the right choices. The second activity is looking at the different feelings the Bears and Goldilocks experienced and matching the emoji to the correct feeling.  Goldilocks ate Baby Bear’s porridge.  You can find out how porridge oats are made here and then find out about the history of porridge oats with this short video. There are lots of recipes for flavouring porridge for you to try.  Which will be your favourite?  You can find two lovely recipes of things to make with oats here.  The first is baked oatmeal cups and the second is a cookie recipe.  There are also two different  bear crafts for you to try this week.  The first is a paper plate bear and the second is a fuzzy bear.  You can find some additional topic Ideas here.

Phonics/Spelling/English

Our reading comprehension this week is all about another bear – Winnie the Pooh. Don’t forget to read the questions carefully.  The first writing task this week is writing a letter from Goldilocks apologising to the Bears.  For the second task you need to decide whether the bears forgive her – or not – and write a letter from the Bears to Goldilocks. Both of these tasks will be completed in class by those children attending school.  Our spellings this week are  words that end in the suffix ‘est’. Don’t forget to keep practising your phonics and reading too.  You can practise your sentence work with Small Town Superheroes and the days of the week and months of the year with Roy the Zebra.

Maths

In our Maths work this week we are continuing to look at time – this week focusing on half past. The following two activities will be completed in class by those children attending school. The first activity is reading and writing the time shown on the clocks and the second is drawing the hands onto the clock faces. There are also some challenge questions for you to have a go at. I have also set you some home work activities on My Maths.  You can practise telling o’clock and half past times with this online activity.  You can also practise with this Hickory Dickory online game.  If you would like a challenge try this maths activity and see if you can be the first to get to midnight.  Don’t forget to keep practising your counting and times tables too.
