Home Learning – week beginning 18 May 2020

Topic

After looking at plants last week we are now going to investigate the things that live on them and under them – Minibeasts!  You can find out what a minibeast is by clicking on this link.  Can you find out about the different kinds of minibeasts we have in our country?  Are any of them the same as in other countries?  You can watch a video all about bees using this link . You might want to listen to the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and then draw or write about the life-cycle of a butterfly.  There are lots of lovely craft ideas that you can explore from The Woodland Trust and Twinkl .  You could have a go at making your own spider web by following these instructions.  Have a look at these mini beast topic ideas too.  Don’t forget to send me some photographs of the topic work you are doing.  It will be lovely to see some of your crafty minibeasts!  There are some more minibeast activities to complete in our English activities.

Maths

I have been really impressed with the multiplication work that you have been sharing.  This week in our maths work we are going to be looking at multiplication word problems.  You can print the activity here.  There are also two challenge questions for you to try.  Don’t forget to keep active with Jack Hartman counting to 120 at the zoo.

You can continue practising your times tables using this link to some online activities and don’t forget to use your TT Rockstars logins too.  You might want to check out these two BBC bitesize activities.  The first is counting on and back in twos and the second is counting on and back in fives.  I have also set you a task on My Maths.

Don’t forget that it is okay to use resources to help you with your Maths.

Phonics/Spelling/English

This week our spellings are all contractions  These are words where the apostrophe replaces a letter.  They appear lots in the books we read so we need to practise reading and writing them.  When writing them don’t make the apostrophe too big as otherwise it might look like another letter!  You can print the spellings here or you can write them in your books.

Have a go at this reading comprehension about The Ant and the Grasshopper.  Remember to try and use sentences when you are answering the questions.  There are two BBC bitesize lessons to help with your grammar work this week.  The first is all about a caterpillar and will help you practise your capital letters and full stops.  The second reminds you about using joining words while writing about a minibeast.

You might also like to try these writing activities.  The first is describing minibeasts and the second is all about minibeast riddles.  It is important to keep practising your phonics too so don’t forget to check out Phonics Play.

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.  You are doing such an amazing job!  It is hard being away from the children but, it has been lovely to have continued contact with them and yourselves over the last few weeks, so please do continue sending photographs and notes about what they are doing.  I know that these are very uncertain times for you so please don’t hesitate to contact me using our class email if needed.

Best wishes and stay safe

Home Learning – week beginning 11 May 2020

Topic

Building on the work we did last week on ‘Trees’, this week we will be looking at all types of plants.  There are some ideas of activities you can do on this topic sheet.  There are lots of different plants to find out about.  Can you find out about a prickly plant, a giant plant or a plant that eats insects?  You could also find out about the plants that we eat and write about your favourite.  One of the activities on the topic sheet is planting a bean.  You can watch a short film of the life-cycle of a bean using this link. You can make some plant people by following these instructions. I would love to see some photographs of your people!

Maths

This week in Maths we will be practising counting in multiples of twos, fives and tens.  You can print the activity here.  You can get active with Jack Hartman and join in with the ‘dancing 2s’.  There are also two challenge  questions for you to have a go at.

You can practise your counting in twos with this online dot to dot activity.  You can also use paint the squares to help you count in 2s, 5s and 10s.  Don’t forget to complete the activity on My Maths and keep practising your times tables on TTRock Stars.

Phonics/Spelling/English

This week our spellings are all words that end with the suffix ‘ing’.  You can print the words here or you can write them into your books.  Don’t forget to write some sentences with them in too.

Have a go at this reading comprehension all about the life cycle of a sunflower.  Try to use full sentences when you are answering the questions.  You can practise your phonics with this online activity then have a look at Small Town Superheroes on BBC bitesize to practise your spelling, phonics and grammar.
