This morning in our Phonics session, we were learning to read the tricky words 'have', 'like', 'some' and 'come'.
Your English task today is to carry on with your stories - it was great to find out about your characters and I'm looking forward to hearing more about them so today I would like you to think about the Build-up and Problem in your stories. You can either write or draw them - you could use the story mountain underneath this to help.

Story mountain template - you can use this as a guide to help you.

Today, we learnt about how animals adapt to the change in season around winter time. We learnt how some animals HIBERNATE, some MIGRATE and some ADAPT in other ways. I'd like you to choose an animal and tell me what it does to survive the winter.

If you want to recap on how animals adapt in winter, this is the presentation we looked at in the lesson.

This morning in Phonics, we were learning to blend to read the four letter words, 'stop, spot, step and plot'. If you want to practise, you could play Picnic on Pluto on PhonicsPlay.
Our English work today is to create a character for a Wishing Tale. Remember to think carefully about what your character looks like, what they really want and why they want it. We'll be starting to write their story tomorrow.

Maths - Friday 15 January

 

Today, we are working on our number bonds.  Watch the video: "Find and Make Number bonds" and have a go at the work under this message.

 

Well done for all your hard work this week.  I've been very impressed with the great work you have all been putting on Seesaw.  Please say a big "thank you" to your grown-ups for helping you this week.  I'll see you on Monday morning at 9:15 for our first Zoom of the new week.

Friday's maths work. Watch the White Rose video and then have a go at these questions. You can either print the worksheet or write the answers for me to see on Seesaw.

Berny joined us this morning to give us a silly sentence to write. If you want to practise your phonics, play 'Dragons Den' on Phonics Play (Phase 4, Set 1-7). Today's English task is to write your improved version of the story, 'The Dreamer' in words. Please post them on Seesaw - I'm looking forwards to reading them.

Today, we are thinking about Churches. They are special places for Christians. What is your special place? What makes it special?

RE - Pictures of churches. What do you notice? What is the same? What is different?

Maths - Thursday 14 January

Today, we are practising how to use number bonds to add.  We learnt that knowing 3+7 helps us know what 13+7 or 3+17 is.  Have a look at today's video on the White Rose link that I posted earlier this week if you weren't able to join us.  If you finished the work I posted yesterday, please have a go at using what you know about number bonds to 10 to work out your number bonds to 20.  If you find making 20 too easy, have a go at working out your number bonds to 37 (remember, you can use number bonds to 7 to help you).

Today we learnt how to read the tricky words "so" and "said". If you want to practise your phonics, please play Buried Treasure on phonicsplay.co.uk (Phase 4, Set 1-7).
Your English task is to improve the story of "The Dreamer" by adding some adjectives to describe the characters or things in the story. Add them to your story map or make up some actions and storytell out loud. We'll be writing our improved story tomorrow.

Spanish - Wednesday 13 January

A three part challenge for you this afternoon:-

1) Can you practise your colours by following the rap on our Spanish page (linked below)?

2) Can you practise how to greet people in Spanish?

3) Can you learn some Flamenco dancing, inspired by the videos that Mr Milbank has put on the website.  Follow the Youtube link under this for a simple flamenco lesson.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing this on Seesaw!

Today, I challenged you to be weather watchers and to OBSERVE the weather for the next few days. If you are able to use a thermometer to check the temperature, that would be great (or you could ask a grown-up to find the temperature on their phone). Follow the instructions in this video to make a rain gauge.

Thank you to those of you that joined us for our live maths lesson earlier. I'm hoping you'll be able to send me your work on Seesaw as some of it was a bit too small for me to see on Zoom. If you want to do more maths today, I'd suggest you look at the Day 3 video on White Rose (I've put the link under this).
