Work through the 4 parts of the Fiver from Home Workbook, completing the activities and using guiding documents.

 

The Wordguide offers explanations with relevant examples all of the terms in the workbook in case this is the first time seeing them.

For parents / carers supervising or delivering Fiver from Home, we have Top tips for Parents sheet that offers a few suggestions on how to keep your young people engaged and having fun throughout the project.

Here’s a fiver, what business could you start?

Use the workbook to create an idea, name your business and use our Top Tips to create a logo.

Use the Remote Market Research Template and example questions to find out what your customers think.  This should be completed via telephone or email with people you know.

Plan it!

Use the third part of the workbook to create your business plan by answering the questions in the business plan section.  Draw your product or create a poster for your service.

Pitch it!

In the final part of the workbook plan, write and then present a sales pitch to someone in your home.

There are plenty of tips on what to include and how to present the sales pitch in the workbook.

 

 

Whole School Challenge

Here’s a song you can all learn together and then we can sing it together when we come back together at school.  You could even have a go at creating a simple dance routine for the chorus.

Friday 22nd May 2020

 

Good morning, Class 3 and welcome to Fabulous Friday!

 

We’ve reached the end of ANOTHER week of home-learning! Each week you continue to make me feel so unbelievably proud of all the outstanding work that you manage to achieve at home. 

 

TODAY IS CLASS 3’s ZOOM DAY! I will be heading into school and I will also be joining Mrs Hanham for Class 5’s Zoom session so enjoy completing the English, Maths and Creative challenges.  I will look forward to seeing them all this evening.  I will be sending out the meeting details for our Zoom session shortly and I am very much looking forward to hearing all about your week online at 2:00pm

 

Wake Up, Shake Up

PE with Joe – If you’re enjoying your routine PE lesson with Joe Wicks each morning then here’s the link once again for you to follow at 9am…

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

Alternatively, if you fancy getting active with the BBC Super Movers then follow this link to recap your 4 times tables with The 4 Times Table Bop…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-maths-the-4-times-table-with-cyril-the-swan/zmsw382

 

Today’s Number of the Day is… 555

  • How many ways can you make and represent this number?
  • Can you use addition, subtraction or multiplication to make this number?
  • Can this number be shared equally into two groups?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

The Grand Canyon

You have won first prize in a competition! You have won a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon! I would like you to describe your feelings about this.

You could divide your writing into three different sections, thinking about how you felt the night before the journey, the morning of the journey and after the flight.

 

Challenge - Use a thesaurus to look up these words:

  • High
  • Low
  • Beautiful

You could include some of the synonyms that you find for these words in your paragraphs about the helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon.

 

Please remember to share your writing with me on Showbie or send it to me via email.  You may also like to bring it along to our Zoom session this afternoon and read it to your friends.

 

Maths:

Each Friday, BBC Bitesize are setting some fantastic Maths challenges to test your problem-solving skills. Follow this link for today’s challenges and see how many you and your family can do together…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znvf382

 

You’ll certainly be challenged with some of these money and shape word problems! Remember to share your answers and ideas with me on Showbie or via email.

 

Creative Afternoon:

I thought it would be nice to finish our week with some creative music fun.  Below is a selection of listening, singing and action performance activities for you to choose from:

 

1. Listening – Brassed Off - Concierto d'Aranjuez

Have a listen to this brass band. Brass bands are famous all over the world. They are as famous as Buckingham Palace and Fish and Chips! Brass bands date back to the early nineteenth century and England’s Industrial revolution. By 1860 there were over 750 bands in England. Funding was mainly from wealthy coal mine and cotton mill owners. Listen to the music and see if you can spot a very young Obi-wan-Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) from the Star Wars Films.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zo8hIc7DpuE&t=182s

THINK: Which instruments can you name? Do any instruments seem out of place in a brass band?

 

2. Appraising – Brassed Off – William Tell Overture

Here’s another famous piece, played by a brass band. Do you recognise it?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwhGlrZOfFI

THINK: How is this piece different to the first one - ‘Concierto d’Aranjuez’? Can you think of three ways?

 

3. Action Song – You Can Do it Too – Row Row Row Your Boat

Feeling a bit sleepy? This singing and action song will be sure to wake you up! 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sr4pbm5K9w&t=144s

 

4. Now its time for some singing. Begin with one of the vocal warmups below:

Vocal warm-up 1 – Mosquito https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AY-KjQ0ebAo

Vocal warm-up 2 – The Do Re Mi So Challenge https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YN5vsSitLK0

 

5. Song – Do Re Mi

Follow the link and sing along! Remember to take deep breaths and aim for clear words.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJJUG_Elt5g

THINK: what does do, re, mi and so mean? 

 

Please share your pictures and videos, with me on Showbie, of you having a go at some of these musical activities. I look forward to seeing how much fun you have!

Thursday 21st May 2020

 

Good morning, Class 3 and welcome to Thrill Seeking Thursday!

 

I hope that you are all well. I was very impressed with the work that you sent me yesterday – your information leaflets on saving the beautiful island of Cozumel were amazing as were your Under the Sea creations.  Don’t forget there is still time to enter the Art of Science Competition.  I hope that you are looking forward to completing some more exciting home learning tasks today!

 

Yesterday’s class discussion was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who came along and contributed.  I will let you know when we are going to do it again.

 

PE with Joe – If you’re enjoying your routine PE lesson with Joe Wicks each morning then here’s the link once again for you to follow at 9am…

Alternatively, you might choose to begin your day with some Cosmic Kids Yoga to help focus your body and mind… https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga

 

Today is Verbsday and your Word of the Day is… express

  • Can you write a definition?
  • Can you think of some synonyms?
  • Can you write a sentence including this word?
  • Can you write a list of adverbs which could compliment this verb?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

Today, you are going to be writing a formal report all about badgers.  Click on the following link to head over to the BBC Bitesize website where you can watch a short clip and learn about what makes a clear and informative report.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znc26v4

Report rules

  • All the information must be about the same topic.
  • You should provide the audience with lots of facts and evidence rather than personal opinions.
  • Reports must be set out clearly with a title, introduction, paragraphs, subheadings and images. (Subheadings are little titles for each paragraph, or group of paragraphs, to explain what they are about.)
  • They should be written in a formal tone (like how you would speak to your head teacher).
  • They should be written in the present tense (as if the actions are happening now).

 

Once you have watched the video, have a go at completing some of the following practice activities:

Activity 1 - read this formal report about sharks then answer the following questions.

  1. What does the report have at the very beginning?
  2. What does each paragraph have?

For questions three to five, see if you can find an example to support your answer.

  1. Is it written in the present tense?
  2. Is it written with a formal tone (like how you would speak to your head teacher)?
  3. Does it use facts?

 

Activity 2 – watch the short clip explaining how badgers live underground and fill in the planning sheet for your report.

 

Activity 3 – begin writing your report. As you write your report, remember the following:

  • Keep looking back at your plan as this shows you everything you want to include.
  • Refer back to the Report rules at the start of the lesson. If you include all of these your writing will be very impressive!
  • Make sure you write in full sentences and in paragraphs. Aim for each paragraph to be between four and six sentences long.

 

Activity 4 – read over your report and ensure it meets the success criteria. Then, write two things that you really like about your report and one thing that you would like to improve next time you write a report.

 

Please remember to share your reports with me on Showbie or send them via email.  I am looking forward to seeing what you produce.

 

Maths:

Today’s Maths lesson is going to be about Tenths.  Click on the link below to access the video to support your learning.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmcny9q

 

Once you have watched the video, have a go at completing some of the following activities:

Activity 1 – Complete the attached worksheet using the tenths provided. You could create your own representations using counters or other objects to show how much of the fraction is shaded.

 

Activity 2 – There are four questions to answer on this interactive animation. You will need to identify the fractions of a pizza that the robots Hop and Boop have created…

https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/resource/year-3-tenths-interactive-animation/

 

Please remember to share your learning with me on Showbie via email.  I am looking forward to seeing how you get on with these fraction activities.

 

Creative Afternoon:

Canada is the largest country in North America and is made up of mainly lakes and forests. There are more than 30,000 lakes in Canada! The lakes help Canada to be a beautiful place, but they also provide food, sports and transport, including helping the country to make money. 

 

The Great Bear Lake is Canada’s largest lake. It is also the fourth-largest in North America, and the eighth-largest in the world.

 

For this afternoon’s task, you are going to imagine you have visited Great Bear Lake and you are sending a postcard home, telling your family or friends all about your trip.  You can either use the template attached or create your own.

 

You will need to design the front of your postcard, including a picture of Great Bear Lake. Here are some photos to help you see what the lake looks like:

You will then need to write a message on the back of your postcard.  Consider the following points when writing:

  • How did you get there?
  • What did you get up to while you were there? (e.g. sports, how you ate).
  • What is the scenery like?
  • Think about the name. What else might be there?

Please send some pictures of your postcard to me on Showbie or via email, I look forward to seeing them all!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-maths-the-3-times-table/z6sw382

 

Today’s Number of the Day is… 400

  • How many ways can you make and represent this number?
  • Can you use addition, subtraction or multiplication to make this number?
  • Can this number be shared equally into two groups?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

Cozumel is an island off the coast of Mexico (in North America). It is found in the Caribbean Sea and is famous because it has a beautiful coral reef.

Animals on the island include:

  • The Great Curassow – a large bird which is highly endangered
  • The Thrasher – a bird from the mockingbird family, which is nearly, if not already, extinct
  • The Cozumel Fox - which is nearly, if not already, extinct
  • The Island Coati – which is endangered
  • The Island Raccoon – which is seriously endangered

Cozumel island is a very important place for protecting endangered animals and the fragile coral reefs. The biggest threat to Cozumel’s wildlife is the tourists.  

 

Today, I would like you to design an information leaflet for people travelling to Mexico, who want to visit the wildlife at Cozumel. Your leaflet will need to persuade visitors NOT to visit the island.

 

It will need a front cover to attract the reader and will need to inform them:

  • What wildlife lives on Cozumel island?
  • Why it is important that the stay away from the area and protect the endangered animals? 
  • What could they do in Mexico instead of visiting Cozumel island?

You could use the attached template for your information leaflet or just simply fold a piece of paper in half to create a leaflet design of your own.  I can’t wait to see all the amazing information leaflets that you create today. Please share them with me on Showbie or via email.

 

Maths:

Today’s Maths lesson is all about recapping how we identify and write unit and non-unit fractions. BBC Bitesize have put together some useful reading to remind you of the differences between unit and non-unit fractions. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhgxhbk

 

Once you have read the information, have a go at completing the three different interactive activities. Then, answer as many questions as you can from the worksheet attached.

As many of you found out through your research yesterday afternoon, one of the three largest countries in North America is the United States.  We know that the USA has a wide range of environments and climates due to it being so big!

 

Today, I would like you to look at the 3 photographs below. They are all taken in the USA. Write 5-7 sentences that you can say about the USA, using the photos to help you.  Remember to use adjectives to describe the different locations.

Now have a think about what one, out of these three locations in the USA, would you prefer to visit? Why? You could draw a picture of the location to go with your sentence.

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

Click on the link below to head over to the BBC Bitesize Page for today’s English. Today is all about learning to understand the difference between fact and opinion!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zn4dqp3

 

Facts can be supported by evidence whereas opinions are based on thoughts and feelings.  The short clip will help you to understand the differences between the two in more detail.

 

After viewing the first clip, move on and watch the fun Super Movers video to learn more about facts and opinions.

See how well you followed the super Movers video by answering the following questions:

  • What is a fact? Give an example from the video.
  • What is an opinion? Give an example from the video.
  • What does a fact need to be supported by?

 

Now have a go at putting your knowledge of facts and opinions into practice by completing some of the following activities.

 

Activity 1 – complete the interactive game on the BBC Bitesize website to show your understanding of facts and opinions.

 

Activity 2 - decide which of the following statements are facts and which are opinions.

  • Pandas are cuter than meerkats.
  • The Houses of Parliament are in London.
  • Apples grow on trees.
  • My cat is the best cat in the world!
  • Ice cream is horrible.
  • Water will become ice if the temperature is cold enough.

 

Activity 3 - complete the ‘Fact or Opinion?’ activity sheet attached. You will need to write one fact and one opinion for each topic on the sheet.

I am looking forward to seeing your learning today. You can send it to me on Showbie of via email.

 

Maths:

During Maths this week, we are going to be recapping the work we have done on Fractions. Begin the week by clicking on the link below and reminding yourself of how we write and identify Fractions:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zd8mt39

 

Watch the two different clips and read all about what a fraction is and how they are might be used in everyday life.

 

Then, have a go at the following activities:

Activity 1 - have a go at this quiz on the BBC Bitesize website to test your knowledge of fractions!

Activity 2 – have a go at completing the questions on the attached worksheet, from Collins, involving fractions.

Activity 3 – follow this link to have a go at some fraction matching activities

Please remember to share your Marvellous Maths with me on Showbie or via email. I look forward to seeing how you get on with recapping your fractions!  

 

Creative Afternoon:

During the afternoons this week, we are going to be taking a journey through North America! This means that many of our Creative afternoon tasks will be linked to finding out more about the continent, North America.

 

To start our week off, I would like you to do some research about North America. Find out about the countries, climate and famous landmarks within the continent as well as the animals, population and cultures. You could use some of the useful links below or search for your own information on the internet.

https://www.kids-world-travel-guide.com/north-america-facts.html

https://www.oddizzi.com/teachers/explore-the-world/places/north-america/

https://kids.kiddle.co/North_America

Remember to stay safe when researching online! You can add the words ‘Kids’ or ‘KS2’ after your search to make sure the information you find is appropriate.

 

Once you have collected your research, you may choose to present what you found out about North America by creating a poster, leaflet, short iMovie or fact file.  Will your information include FACTS, OPINIONS or both?

 

Please remember to share your work with me on Showbie or send it via email. I am looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful things that you find out about North America.

Today is Long-Word-Friday and your Word of the Day is… individuality

  • Can you use a dictionary to find the definition?
  • Can you write a sentence including this word?
  • Can you spell the word using a pyramid?
  • How many other words can you make from the letters in this word?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

Using the book Charlie Changes Into a Chicken, you are going to explore how we can summarise information and write creatively.

 

Begin your learning by watching presenter Mehreen Baig read an extract from the story…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z4vxt39

As you listen, think about the following questions:

  • Do you think Charlie is in pain?
  • What do you think he is changing into?

 

Now watch Mehreen read another extract from Charlie Changes Into a Chicken and think about the following:

  • What do you think the phrases a well-known fact and a less-known fact actually mean?
  • What does predicament mean?
  • What does Charlie count?
  • Do you think spiders really have eight bums?

 

Once you have listened to the extracts from the story, have a go at one of the following activities:

1. Using extract 1, retell what happens when Charlie begins to change in 5 simple steps. Try to write the      events in your own words.

2. Read some of the examples from the second extract in the table below and explain how they help you      to visualise and imagine what is happening.

3. The author of the story, Sam Copeland, chooses language that aims to make his readers laugh. See if      you can do the same.

  • Read both extracts again and think about how small Charlie is now as a spider.
  • Imagine that you have changed into something small. It may be an animal, a bird, something in the water or whatever you want to be.

What would you do if you were small?

Think about the benefits of being really tiny. What could you do?

  • Write a list of five advantages of being really small.

Call the list ‘The Top 5 benefits of being a .....................................’.

 

Please upload any of your responses to Charlie Changes Into a Chicken onto Showbie or send them to me via email. I look forward to reading them!

 

Maths:

Each Friday, BBC Bitesize are setting some fantastic Maths challenges to test your problem-solving skills.

 

Follow this link for today’s challenges and see how many you and your family can do together…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z4gkwty

 

You’ll certainly be challenged with some of these word problems! Remember to share your answers and ideas with me on Showbie or via email.

 

Creative Afternoon:

Following on from our Ancient Greece research, I would like you to design a Greek vase of your own this afternoon.  Look closely at the pictures below to see how detailed the vases were and what sort of patterns and colours they would have been decorated with.

You could use one of the templates attached to help you form the outline shape of your vase or, even better, have a go at drawing your own.  To add detail to your Greek patterns, you could use different coloured pencils or crayons.  Get stuck in and be creative!

 

I look forward to seeing all of your Greek designs.  Please remember to share your artwork with me on Showbie or via email.

English:

Divine Chocolate & Christian Aid Poetry Competition!

Write a poem about cocoa and chocolate! Submit your poem to our National Poetry Competition, now in its 18th year.

 

The theme is... Where does the chocolate journey begin?

 

Watch this short film to find out more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGaLWuLzHBU

 

Cocoa grows on trees

The key ingredient in chocolate is cocoa. Most of the cocoa you eat comes from the rainforests of West Africa, where poor farmers tend their cocoa trees on small family farms. This is where the chocolate journey begins.

The journey through history

Among the Mayans and Aztecs of Central America where cocoa originated, cocoa beans were so important they were used as money. Nobles drank cocoa at royal feasts. In modern times, chocolate has come to symbolise romantic love and luxury.

From bean to bar

Cocoa comes from the seeds of cocoa pods, which grow on the cocoa tree. Farmers harvest the cocoa, ferment it and dry it out in the sun, and then send it to factories to be made into delicious chocolate.

Into the future

Changing weather patterns make it harder to grow cocoa, driving cocoa farmers to move and cut down the rainforest for new farms, which makes climate change worse. Through Fairtrade, we can support cocoa farmers to farm in a better way and protect the forest.

Remember this is the Divine Poetry Competition - if you write about chocolate products, don't write about other chocolate companies!

 

Are there prizes?

Yes! The winning pupil will get a film of their poem being read by this year's guest judge, Onjali Raúf, winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2019.  They will get book tokens. And they will get lots of delicious Divine Chocolate goodies!

Good luck!

I can’t wait to see your work…remember to email it or send it to me on Showbie!  I will then submit your entries!

 

Maths:

Here is a Maths challenge for you to think about today:

On the planet, Vuv there are two sorts of creatures.  The Zios have 3 legs and the Zepts have 7 legs.

The great planetary explorer Nico, who first discovered the planet, saw a crowd of Zios and Zepts.  He managed to see that there was more than one of each kind of creature before they saw him.  Suddenly they all rolled over onto their backs and put their legs in the air.

He counted 52 legs.

 

Challenge: How many Zios and how many Zepts were there?

 

More Challenging: Do you think there are any different answers?

 

Please share your answers with me on Showbie or via email, I look forward to seeing the results!  Also, don’t forget to logon and play Sumdog.  If you need a reminder of your login details, then do let me know! 

 

Creative Afternoon:

Animals can be classified as either vertebrates or invertebrates.  Follow this link and watch the two short films to remind yourself of what a vertebrate and an invertebrate is…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z4m6hbk

 

  • Vertebrates are animals that have a backbone inside their body.  The major groups include fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.
  • Invertebrates are animals that don't have a backbone.  Some have soft bodies, like worms, slugs and jellyfish.

 

Use your science knowledge to complete some of the following activities:

  1. Have a go at sorting the animals into invertebrates and vertebrates using the interactive game (following the link above.)
  2. Now take the quiz and answer some questions about vertebrates and invertebrates (also following the link above.)
  3. Go on a spider safari at home and learn more about invertebrates and vertebrates. Follow this link or read the attached document for more information…

Today is Adverbday and your Word of the Day is… fashionably

  • Can you write a definition?
  • Can you think of some synonyms?
  • Can you write a sentence including this word?
  • Can you make any other words from the letters in this word?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

Today you are going to be using all of the grammar skills that you have recapped over the past few weeks to write an exciting story titled ‘Through the Doorway’

Think: Where is the doorway? What type of door is it? Perhaps your character will find something on the other side of the door? Is the door locked?

 

You will need to plan your story before writing.  Use the story mountain attached to help you and remember to consider: Who are your characters? Where is the story set? What is the problem or dilemma and how will it be solved? How will your story end?

 

Remember to:

  • Write in full sentences.
  • Organise your ideas into paragraphs.
  • Choose your words carefully to excite the reader (can you include an expanded noun phrase, simile, metaphor or fronted adverbial?)
  • Take care with your spelling and punctuation.
  • Check your story makes sense and that you have purple polished your writing carefully.

 

Please share your stories with me on Showbie or via email. I am very excited to read about all the possibilities that may happen ‘Through the Doorway’!

 

Maths:

Here is a fun Maths game for you to play at home called Multiplication Bingo!

What you need to play:

  • Some paper and a pencil to write your numbers onto (preferably split into 5 sections)
  • Some willing bingo players!

 

How to play:

  1. In this mathematical version of bingo, all players write down 5 numbers, which are multiples of a given times table. For example: if they were doing the 3 times table, they might write 3, 9, 18, 24 and 30.
  2. A third person can lead the game and call out multiplication questions from the chosen times table, or they can be written on cards, jumbled up in a pile for players to take turns picking and reading out.
  3. If the player has an answer to the question on their bingo board, they can cross it out. First person to cross out all their numbers is the winner.

You could play another round but this time using the 4 or 8 times tables. 

 

Extension: Why not login to your Times Table Rock Stars and practice your times tables or you could have a go at playing this game: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

 

I would love to see some pictures of you playing Multiplication Bingo at home! Feel free to share them with me on Showbie or via email.

 

Creative Afternoon:

This term we have begun learning about Ancient Greece. Many of you have already done some of your own research about Ancient Greece and created some fantastic posters and timelines.

 

Today we are going to look more closely at the map of Ancient Greece (attached below) and explore some of the different aspects that Ancient Greece is known for.  I would like you to find out an interesting fact about each aspect that is highlighted on the map (Athens, Olympia Sparta, Crete, Mount Olympus, Troy and Macedonia). 

 

You could add your interesting facts to the sheet attached or choose to display your information in a different way such as a poster, leaflet, video, fact file etc.

 

Enjoy researching the well-known aspect of Ancient Greece! I am looking forward to seeing all the amazing things that you find out.  Remember to share them with me on Showbie or via email.

International Nurses Day

A day observed around the world, on the 12th of May every year, International Nurses Day is an event that celebrates the contributions that nurses make to society.

 

This day has been celebrated since 1965, the International Council of Nurses were the pioneers of the event.  It is also celebrated on the 12th of May as it commemorates Florence Nightingale's birthday, the founder of modern, day to day, nursing.  It is even more special this year as it would have been Florence Nightingale’s 200th Birthday!

 

Usually in the United Kingdom, a service is held in Westminster Abbey, London.  A symbolic lamp is passed from one nurse to another, signifying the giving of knowledge.  This year, people are being encouraged to ‘shine a light’ in their windows at 8.30pm this evening.

 

Use the fact sheet and Powerpoint (attached) to find out about Florence Nightingale.  Use the Internet to find out some more about her.

 

Create a poster, e-book, Powerpoint, film, biography, leaflet to share everything you have learnt about the life of Florence Nightingale.

 

Please remember to share your learning with me on Showbie or via email.  I am looking forward to seeing what you learn about Florence Nightingale!

 

Maths:

Warm-up your Maths minds today by recapping your 4 times table facts…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-maths-the-4-times-table-with-cyril-the-swan/zmsw382

 

Today’s Maths focus is to explore how we multiply a two-digit number by a one-digit number. When multiplying a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number you can use both mental and written methods.

 

Watch the following video to explore how we could solve a multiplication problem in our head by breaking down the sum. Before you press play on the video, have a think about how you would work out 19 x 5?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zb4gcqt

 

Follow the next link to an interactive guide on how to multiplying a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number using a written method… https://static.mymaths.co.uk/xml/player/v2.2.9/build/index.html?contentPath=../../../en/primary/number/multiply_divide_written/short_multiplication_lesson

 

Now have a go at practicing some of these skills by completing the following activities:

Activity 1 – how many of the questions can you complete on the attached activity sheet. Think carefully about the method you will use when multiplying.

Activity 2 – have some multiplication fun with this activity from Twinkl.

Good morning, Class 3 and Happy Monday!

 

Welcome to week 4 of the Summer Term.  I hope that you have all had a lovely VE Day Bank holiday weekend, the weather was truly beautiful for our garden parties!  I hope you are looking forward to completing some exciting home learning tasks today.

 

Wake Up, Shake Up

 

PE with Joe – If you’re enjoying your daily PE sessions with Joe Wicks’ then here’s this week’s link to his YouTube channel. Don’t forget to tune in at 9am to get moving and feeling energised…

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

Alternatively, you could follow this link to the BBC Super Movers where you’ll be able to recap the things you have learnt about expanded noun phrases while getting active… 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-english-noun-phrases/zf7b6v4

 

Today is Nounsday and your Word of the Day is… exhaustion

  • Can you write a definition?
  • Can you think of some synonyms?
  • Can you use this word in a perfect sentence?
  • Spell-round: write the word ten times forwards. Now, without looking at the word, can you spell it backwards out loud?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

You have all been writing some superb pieces of extended writing during our period of home-learning.  Today we are going to look at how we can up-level our writing even more by including similes and metaphor.

 

Begin your learning by following this link and watching the short clip explaining what similes and metaphors are… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zmmpscw

  • A metaphor is a word or a phrase used to describe something as if it were something else. For example: A wave of terror washed over him. The terror isn't actually a wave, but a wave is a good way to describe the feeling.
  • A simile describes something by comparing it to something else, using the words like or as. For example: The snake moved like a ripple on a pond. It was as slippery as an eel.

 

Now watch the second clip of a man describing his encounter with the Loch Ness monster.  See if you can spot any similes or metaphors.

 

Think: Did you prefer listening to the man's version of the story or the policeman's version? Can you explain why?

 

Once you have understood the use of similes and metaphors in writing, have a go at some of the following activities:

Activity 1 – check how well you understood the videos by playing the interactive game (below the final video). You will need to say whether each sentence is a simile or a metaphor.

Activity 2 – Complete this 'Simile or Metaphor?' activity sheet attached.  You need to read the phrase inside each cloud and decide whether it is a simile or a metaphor.  You can either print the activity sheet and colour the similes blue and the metaphors yellow, or copy the phrases out into two lists: similes and metaphors.

Activity 3 - Some similes are used a lot, like 'as cool as a cucumber' or 'as busy as a bee'.  Complete the 'Inventing New Similes' activity sheet attached below by rewriting the well-known similes and updating them with your own ideas.

 

Please share your newly invented similes and metaphors with me on Showbie or via email and remember to use them in your next piece of extended writing.  

 

Maths:

Today’s we are going to recap our 8 times tables.  Begin by singing along to the 8 times tables with Filbert Fox… https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-maths-the-8-times-table-with-filbert-fox/z4mrhbk

 

Then, follow this link to an interact slideshow where you will need to solve some pirate problems involving multiplying and dividing by eight… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvvsy9q

 

Now, have a go at completing some of the pirate themed activity sheets attached using your 8 times tables knowledge.  You can choose from the *Challenging **More Challenging or ***Superstar Material activities.

 

Extension: I have also attached a fun space race game that you may like to print out and play with someone at home.  This will help you get quicker at recalling your 8 times tables.  

 

Please remember to share some pictures of your fabulous Maths with me on Showbie or via email.  I look forward to seeing how you get on!  

 

Creative Afternoon:

Today I would like you to have a go at creating a hand clapping, hand tutting or hand jive sequence of movements.  Begin by following the links below to watch some different hand movements.  Be sure to only watch them once

Can you now demonstrate any of the sequences you have just watched?  Can you think of an effective way to learn them?

 

It is hard to learn something new unless it has been broken down into small parts.  This is called decomposition (the process of breaking down a task into smaller, more-manageable parts.)

 

I would like you to use the ‘Sequence Design Sheet’ attached to break down one of the hand movements you have watched (you may now go back and watch the videos again) or a sequence of hand movements of your own.  You will need to draw each step and explain the type of movement using arrows/ a word.  Look at the example attached for support.

 

Here is a useful link which explains the clapping patterns in small chunks: www.youtube.com/watch?v=6k6J1jdQY_w

 

Challenge: Can a member of your family demonstrate your sequence of movements by following your decomposition.

 

Please remember to upload your work to Showbie or alternatively, send it to me via email.  I would love to see a video of you demonstrating your sequence of hand movements.

 

Drop Everything and READ!!

Please continue to read every day! You could select a book from home to read or use your personal logins for Read Theory and MyOn to access different texts each day. Another great way to enjoy a story could be through Audible, who are currently offering free audio books to download!

 

If you would like to write a review about any of the exciting books you’ve enjoyed at home, then I’d love to hear about them.

 

Finally, remember to stay positive and enjoy your learning! I look forward to seeing all your hard work that you produce today.

Friday 8th May 2020

 

Good morning, Class 3 and welcome to Fabulous Friday!

 

We’ve nearly reached the end of yet another fabulous week of home-learning!  I hope everyone is ready for the VE DAY STAY AT HOME PARTY today!

 

I just want to remind everyone that our Class 3 Zoom meeting has been moved to the morning today so that you can all enjoy your party this afternoon.  Due to the two-minute silence happening for VE Day at 11:00am, I will open the meeting at 11:05am.  Please don’t feel pressured to race to your devices, we will allow a few minutes for everyone to join 😊 Feel free to bring along some nibbles and a party hat to share with the class on zoom this morning.

 

Today is all about having fun and spending time with your families at home.  Below are some optional activities and some events that are happening throughout the day that you may like to take part in but remember to relax and have fun at the same time!  

 

 

PE with Joe – You might like to still begin the day with your routine PE lesson with Joe Wicks at 9am…

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

English:

Choose from the selection of activities below:

  1. Reflect upon this week’s learning by completing the ‘VE Day Thoughts’ reflection – have you learnt something new about VE Day this week?
  2. Complete your week with some further reading about VE Day and then have a go at answering some of the questions attached to the reading comprehension.
  3. How many words can you find in the VE Day word search?
  4. Finish decorating your home for VE Day with the themed colouring sheets attached.

 

Maths:

Choose from the selection of activities below:

  1. Morse Code – Morse code is a way of sending messages without using words.  The code has its own alphabet made up of short and long sounds or flashes of light. Use the Morse code alphabet to translate the messages on the attached sheet.
  2. Rationing – During the war, there was a shortage of food.  As a result of this, British citizens were issued with a ration book. This limited and capped the amount of food they could purchase.  Complete the shopping list activities based on rationing in the war time. 
  3. Why not make your own VE Day Maths board-game to play at the party this afternoon (use the attached template to help you.)

 

Please see the attached documents to complete these activities!

 

Creative Afternoon:

It’s party time!  I hope you all have lots of fun celebrating the 75th Anniversary of VE Day.  When enjoying the party, be sure to take a moment to remember why today is so important to us all!

 

Enjoy your day and extra-long weekend!  Please feel free to share some pictures of your parties with me on Showbie or via email.  I am looking forward to catching up with you on Monday to hear all about the celebrations!

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

Today, we are going to be using the novel ‘Dindy and the Elephant’ to recap our skills of summarising information and explaining our opinion about a character.

 

Follow this link to watch TV presenter Ed Petrie read an extract from ‘Dindy and the Elephant’…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvmy382

As you listen to the story, think about the following questions:

  • Do you know what a cobra snake is and what it looks like?
  • How do you think Pog is feeling in this extract?
  • Do you think that they will go home now?

 

Now watch Ed read another extract from the same story but this time think about the following questions:

  • Are you surprised about the description of the elephants?
  • Is it always rude to shout?
  • Can we shout sometimes?

 

Complete the 2 activities below the videos. Activity 1 is based on the first extract that you heard while Activity 2 is based on the second.  You may need to reread the extracts to support you with the activities.

 

Activity 1 - The writer gives you lots of information about Pog in this extract.  As you reread the extract, highlight everything that is related to Pog.  Think about how the writer tells you about Pog, using description and dialogue (what Pog says and how he reacts). Now complete the table below, explain the things that we know about Pog from this extract.

Examples from the description of what Pog does (actions)

Examples from dialogue – What Pog says (speech)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Activity 2 - The writer also tells you lots of information about the elephants.  How did you feel when you read this section about the elephants? Did it match your expectation?

Write a short paragraph about how you feel about this description of the elephants.

 

Here are some suggested sentence starters:

I felt ...................... when I read the description because…

It made me feel ...................... because…

This part of the text ...................... made me feel……………………

I liked the part when ...................... because…

I did not like the part when...................... because…

I was surprised because I thought…

 

Have a go with these activities and see how far you can get.  The story is a lovely read and I know you will enjoy it.  Please remember to share any of your responses to the story with me on Showbie or via email.   

 

Maths:

You’ve worked really hard this week to understand how we add, subtract and convert money from ponds to pence.  Today’s Maths learning is going to be about using your 3-times tables to multiply and divide by 3.

 

Begin by recapping your 3 times tables by watching the video of Martin and having a go at answering some of the questions in the video... https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbkvbdm

 

Then, move onto the next two videos with Aaron and watch as he investigates sharing and dividing by three.

 

Now have a go at some of the following activities:

Activity 1 – How many of the questions can you answer about the 3 times tables on the worksheet attached?

Activity 2 – Now follow this link for some interactive fun where you’ll be able to use your knowledge of multiplying and dividing by three to win the game…

https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/resource/year-3-the-three-times-table-game/

 

Creative Afternoon:

Tomorrow is the ‘Stay at Home Street Party’ so today we are going to have a look at wartime recipes.

Can you find out about food and rations during the war?  This video from the Imperial War Museum will tell you about life in Britain and rationing… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9wNJ78S2GY

 

Have a look at the wartime recipe book (attached)… you might like to have a go at preparing something for the party tomorrow. You could make a World War 2 cake or how about some scones?

 

Plan your party for tomorrow. Here are some ideas of things you could do…

  • Plan a menu for your party.
  • Make some decorations – see attached sheet for ideas.
  • Create your own celebratory song!
  • Design a party hat or hair ribbon to wear for the celebration (see Bletchley Park instructions).
  • During WW2, people had to ‘make, do and mend’. You may have something that you might like to ‘upcycle’ or ‘mend’ to wear to your party like your own t-shirt.

 

Enjoy your party preparations and don’t forget to send some photos of your creations to me on Showbie or via email today!

 

Drop Everything and READ!!

Please continue to read every day! You could select a book from home to read or use your personal logins for Read Theory and MyOn to access different texts each day. Another great way to enjoy a story could be through Audible, who are still currently offering free audio books to download!

Good morning, Class 3 and welcome to Wonderful Wednesday!

 

Well done once again to everyone for engaging in so many of our home-learning tasks every day! I really enjoyed seeing all the amazing Spitfire models that were built yesterday afternoon.  I hope you are ready to engage with today’s exciting tasks.

 

PE with Joe – If you’re enjoying your routine PE lesson with Joe Wicks each morning then here’s the link once again for you to follow at 9am…

Today’s Number of the Day is… 654

  • How many ways can you make and represent this number?
  • Can you use addition, subtraction or multiplication to make this number?
  • Can this number be shared equally into two groups?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

This week we have been exploring VE Day or 'Victory in Europe Day', a day that marks the end of World War Two (WW2) when fighting against Nazi Germany in Europe came to an end.

 

Today I would like you to imagine you were living through World War Two (WW2).  You’ve just woken up after spending a night in an Anderson Shelter. 

 

Anderson Shelter - These shelters were half buried in the ground with earth heaped on top to protect them from bomb blasts. They were made from six corrugated iron sheets bolted together at the top, with steel plates at either end, and measured 6ft 6in by 4ft 6in (1.95m by 1.35m).

 

I would like you to write a diary entry about your night in the Anderson Shelter. Take a moment to think about:

  • What was the Anderson Shelter like?
  • Where was the Anderson Shelter?
  • What could you smell, hear and see?
  • Who was in there with you?
  • What food did you eat?
  • How did you feel?

Make a few notes about your thoughts before beginning your diary entry. Remember to start with ‘Dear Diary…’

 

I can’t wait to read your experiences of a night in the Anderson Shelter. Please share them with me on Showbie or via email.

 

Maths:

Yesterday you explored how we add different amounts of Money, today I would like you to learn about how we subtract Money from a total. Begin by following this link to today’s videos where Aaron will demonstrate how to subtract money using coins, a number line and column methods…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6btpg8

 

Once you have watched the two videos, have a go at completing some of the follow-on tasks.

Activity 1 – Complete the questions on the attached worksheet to demonstrate your skills of subtracting money.

Activity 2 – Follow the link to an interactive game where you can have even more practise on taking away different amounts of money…

https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/resource/year-3-subtracting-money-game/

 

Don’t forget to use your Classroom Secrets Kids logins to explore more games and fun on this website!

 

Creative Afternoon:

Create your own colourful bunting for your ‘Stay at Home Street Party’.

 

Some templates and instructions can be found here:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/4TrqYDyf4PMdLypxzyTwGDg/great-british-bunting

 

Bletchley Park also have a no-sew instruction guide (see attached instructions). Be creative - it is up to you how you make your bunting and what design you choose to use!

 

Whilst having fun with your bunting creations why not listen to some war time music? There is a sing-along here with song sheets and videos of some VE day songs…

Tuesday 5th May 2020

 

Good morning, Class 3 and welcome to Terrific Tuesday!

 

Well done to everyone for kicking off our themed week with such great enthusiasm yesterday! If you’d like to see some of the fantastic learning that has been going on at home, then ask your parents to help you access the school Twitter feed (@WalfordSchool) and remember to click ‘like’ if you see anything that makes you smile.  

 

I hope you are up and ready to continue the fun today!

 

Thank you to everyone who has already completed the Stride Active Standing Long Jump for the Herefordshire Virtual School Games. This is your final call for anyone who would still like to do a jump, please send me your scores by the end of the day.

 

PE with Joe – If you’re enjoying your routine PE lesson with Joe Wicks each morning then here’s the link once again for you to follow at 9am…

Alternately, if you would rather begin your day with some dancing fun then follow this link for a Trollz party. Copy the moves and join in… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhfkYzUwYFk  

 

Today’s is Adjectiveday and your Word of the Day is… musty   

  • Can you write a definition?
  • Can you think of some synonyms?
  • Can you write a sentence including this Adjective?
  • Can you learn to spell this word by writing it as a spelling pyramid?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

Today we’re going to recap how to identify and use expanded noun phrases.

Begin your learning today by watching this video which explains what an expanded noun phrase is…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhfgcqt

 

A noun phrase is a simple phrase built around a noun. It contains a determiner and a noun. For example: a tree , some sweets , the castle

An expanded noun phrase adds more detail to the noun by adding one or more adjectives (a word that describes the noun). For example: a huge tree, some colourful sweets, the large, royal castle

 

Now watch the second clip to recap on what adjectives are.

Think: Why might the writer add adjectives to nouns to make expanded noun phrases?

 

Activity 1 – use the interactive game below the clip to check how well you understood the videos by highlighting all the expanded noun phrases. You’ll need to look for the noun (person, place or thing) and then find the determiner and the adjective. Remember, it is all these things together that make an expanded noun phrase.

 

Activity 2 - complete the Expanded Noun Phrases activity sheet attached by underlining the expanded noun phrase in each sentence. You don’t have to print out the activity sheet, simply write the expanded noun phrases on a piece of paper.

 

Extension: If you would like some more practice at writing expanded non phrases, why not complete the Under the Sea activity sheet. You will need to improve the sentences by adding an expanded noun phrase to the words that are written in bold.  Then have a go at writing some sentences of your own, including an expanded noun phrase.

 

Please remember to share your work with me on Showbie or send it via email.

 

Maths:

Adding money is much easier when you group the coins together in pounds and pence. Follow this link to join in with Martin as he adds different amounts of money together…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zkwfvk7

 

When joining in with the two parts of learning, you could use real coins, toy coins or even draw some of your own. Remember to exchange 100p for £1 when you need to, to make it even easier!

 

Activity 1 – practice adding money by completing the questions on the activity sheet attached.

 

Activity 2 – follow this link to the Classroom Secrets Kids where you’ll be able to revise the skill of converting pounds and pence as well as exploring some word problems about money…

https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/resource/year-3-converting-money-reasoning-practice/  

 

Remember to send some pictures of you following Martin’s money maths to me on Showbie or vi email.

 

Creative Afternoon:

On Colonel Tom Moore’s 100th Birthday he had a fly past by some Spitfire aircraft used during World War 2. You can re-watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LWP0efEpVU

 

Today’s task is to design your own aircraft. You could make it out of paper (your own design or using the spitfire template), recyclable materials or use any construction resources such as Connex or Lego that you have at home. It is up to you! Be creative.

 

Can you fly your spitfire? How far will it go?

 

Challenge: Can you solve some of the Bletchley Code activities that are attached below?

 

Don’t forget to send some photos of your aircraft and code solutions to me on Showbie or via email today!

Today’s Number of the Day is… 145

  • How many ways can you make and represent this number?
  • Can you use addition, subtraction or multiplication to make this number?
  • Can this number be shared equally into two groups?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

As mentioned above, this week we are going to be celebrating the 75th Anniversary of VE day but what is VE Day and why are we celebrating it?

 

Begin your week with some reading. Used the attached PowerPoint or follow one of the useful links below for more information:

CBBC Newsround - https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/48201749

BBC Teach - https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/history-ks2-ve-day/z7xtmfr

 

I would like you to share some of the things you found out about VE Day during your reading time. You could choose to present this as a poster, news article, fact page or information text.  Remember to copy any new spellings carefully and use capital letters and full stops in your writing.

 

Please remember to share your learning with me on Showbie or send it to me via email. I am looking forward to reading all about the celebrations of VE day.

 

Maths:

During Maths this week, we are going to be exploring Money. The week will begin with some learning about how we count coins and notes, convert pennies into pounds, and pounds into pennies!

Start by following this link to watch a brief introduction to money. The presenter shows each coin and note, and explains how many pennies they are equivalent to…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/znf4kmn

Think: How many pennies would it take to make £50?

 

Now move on to the second video which explains that larger prices are not usual written in pennies but in pounds. You’ll see various menus and price tags, and learn how notation for money works in everyday situations. You will only need to watch the first 55 seconds of this video.

Think: How many pennies would it take to make £2.60?

 

Activity 1 - Have a go at making £1 in different ways.

  • First make £1 using two coins
  • Then make £1 using four coins

 

Activity 2 – Now see how many of the questions on the attached worksheet you can complete.

  • Page 2 = Challenging
  • Page 3 = More Challenging
  • Page 4 = Superstar Material

 

Please remember to share your Marvellous Maths with me on Showbie or via email. I look forward to seeing how you get on with this Money challenge!  

 

Creative Afternoon:

Hopefully your reading this morning helped you to gain a good understanding of VE Day. Now that you understand VE Day, lets begin our week of celebrations.

 

This afternoon I would like you to choose to complete one of these creative tasks to commemorate VE Day:

 

Don’t forget to send some photos of your commemorative item to me on Showbie or via email!

What would life be like if you lived on the back of an animal?

As you watch the following video, imagine you were the girl living on an animals back…

https://www.literacyshed.com/adrift.html

 

Today, I would like you to write a descriptive paragraph as through you and your family were living on the back of an animal.  In the video, the young girl is nervously living on the back of a smooth, blue whale. She holds onto her precious ears as the whale drifts her through the clear, blue sky.   

 

Before you begin writing close your eyes for a moment and think about the following:

  • If you had to live on the back of an animal, what animal would it be?
  • Where in the world would the animal take you?
  • How would the journey make you feel?
  • What sort of things would you see, hear, smell, taste and touch?

Make some notes about your thoughts before you begin writing your descriptive paragraph. I have attached some help cards with some descriptive words and exciting adjectives that will help you to up-level your writing. Challenge: Can you include some fronted adverbials in your writing?

 

Remember to use your imagination, you could be living in all kinds of magical places.  It would be great if you could add a picture of you and your animal to help bring your descriptive writing to life. 

 

Please upload your work to Showbie or send it to me via email. I am looking forward to reading about your exciting adventures.

 

Phonics:

For those of you who want to continue to practice your Phonics, follow the link below to an optional daily Read Write Inc. Phonics lesson. You can find the lesson for practicing your Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10:30am which will be followed by a spelling session at 10:45…

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ?reload=9&fbclid=IwAR37YGJcDpl7TdXpuBi77zd8Sr8sLCmLzHMw9tEAM-A3RT4HnKXohgAEj5o

 

Maths:

Today’s Maths challenge is called Reach 100. The aim is simple… Can you reach 100?

Begin with a grid of 4 boxes, just like the one below:

Choose four different digits from 1−9 and put one in each box. For example:

You will see that this gives four two-digit numbers:

  • 52      (reading along the 1st row)
  • 19      (reading along the 2nd row)
  • 51      (reading down the left hand column)
  • 29      (reading down the right hand column)

When you add these 4 numbers together (52+19+51+29) you get a total of 151.

Have a go at a few examples of your own.

 

Challenging: Is there a quick way to tell if the total is going to be even or odd?

 

Even More Challenging: Can you find four different digits that give four two-digit numbers which add to a total of 100?

 

Superstar Challenge: How many ways can you find of doing it?

 

Remember to upload some pictures of your results to Showbie or send them to me via email. I look forward to seeing how far you get with this mathematical challenge!

 

Creative Afternoon:

Do you know who the person is in the picture below?

This is Captain Tom Moore, a 99-year-old war veteran from Bedfordshire who recently raised over £28 million for the NHS by completing 100 laps of his garden for his 100th birthday. I have attached some further information, which you might like to read this afternoon, all about Captain Tom Moore’s incredible achievement.  Also, here is a link to a video which shows Captain Tom receiving a Pride of Britain Award… https://metro.co.uk/2020/04/23/captain-tom-moore-humbled-wins-pride-britain-award-raising-28million-nhs-12597143/?ito=article.desktop.share.top.link   

 

Reflection:

It’s important to remember that sometimes it’s not the biggest actions that can have the biggest impact and that all the things that we do affect the world around us! Captain Tom didn’t even leave his garden but managed to raise a lot of money and raise the spirits of the nation! Can you think of anything that you could do at the moment to help others?  

 

Mother Teresa, a Catholic nun who dedicated her life to helping others said,

“If you cannot feed a hundred people, feed one.”

What do you think she meant by this? Do you agree?

However small we think our actions are, we can all contribute to help make a positive difference to the world around us. At some point, to someone or something, our actions matter!

 

Activity:

Now that you’ve had some time to reflect, why not make a card or picture and send it to someone who has made a difference in your local community, say thank you to them and remind them how much they are appreciated. This could be for a teacher, family member, friend or neighbour. You might want to add a picture of Captain Tom Moore completing his challenge.

Wednesday 29th April 2020

 

Good morning, Class 3 and welcome to Wonderful Wednesday!

 

Well done once again to everyone for engaging in so many of our home-learning tasks every day! I really enjoyed seeing everyone’s super sentence writing yesterday! I hope you are ready to engage with today’s exciting tasks.

 

Don’t forget there is still time to complete this week’s Stride Active challenge for the Herefordshire Virtual School Games:

 

PE with Joe – If you’re enjoying your routine PE lesson with Joe Wicks each morning then here’s the link once again for you to follow at 9am…

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

Alternately, you could follow this link to the BBC Super Movers website where you can recap your 8 times tables while getting active and feeling energised….

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-maths-the-8-times-table-with-filbert-fox/z4mrhbk

 

Today is Adverbday and your Word of the Day is… seldom   

  • Can you write a definition?
  • Can you think of some synonyms?
  • Can you write a sentence including this word?
  • Can you spell this word backwards?
  • Can you make any other words from the letters in this word?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

During our English lessons last term, we looked at some different types of information texts all about holiday’s. Today I would like you to design an information text all about your ideal holiday.

 

The information could be presented in lots of different ways such as a mini brochure, leaflet, poster, fact page or even a drawn website design.  I have attached some templates below that you may wish to use.  It should inform the reader about the location, travel, food and drink, climate, activities, experiences and of course the prices of the holiday.

 

Your information text could include some of the following features:

  • A clear title with subheadings to organise your information
  • Pictures/ photographs
  • A map
  • Detailed facts
  • Your opinion/ other people’s opinions
  • Questions to leave the reader wondering

Remember to use persuasive language, you are trying to convince the reader that they absolutely MUST choose to go on your holiday!

 

Please share your information text with me on Showbie or via email, I look forward to seeing all your exciting holidays!

 

Maths:

You should have hopefully used the beginning of the week to recap addition and subtraction using the column method. While these methods are very useful and important, sometimes it makes more sense to solve some additions and subtractions using a mental method.

 

The problems in this lesson all involve adding or subtracting multiples of ten, and the numbers are chosen carefully so that you can use a mental method to solve them.

 

You will learn how to look at a calculation and decide on the most efficient strategy to find the solution, rather than always reverting to a written method.

 

For example, to solve 700 – 1, it is more efficient to count back one than to write a full column subtraction!

 

Begin your learning by watching these 2 short videos about how we add and subtract 10s when using 3-digit numbers… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z7psf4j

 

Activity 1 – Complete the first activity sheet attached. For this question, you will need to think about how you can use number bonds to help you find the solution.

 

Activity 2 – Now complete the second activity sheet attached. For question 1, you will need to think about the number sentence. Which digit will change? How do you know? For question 2, why does the 1s digit not change?

 

Use the answers to self-assess your work and remember to share your Marvellous Maths with me on Showbie or via email.

 

Creative Afternoon:

A skeleton has 3 main functions, these are:

  • To protect the body
  • To support the body
  • To allow our bodies to move in different ways

 

For today’s Science activity I would like you to research these 3 main functions. You will need to be able to identify which parts of the human skeleton is responsible for each of the three jobs. I have attached an information sheet that might help you to understand this.

 

I would now like you to show your understanding of the 3 main jobs of a skeleton. You could choose to present this as a poster, diagram, PowerPoint, movie, photograph or a written piece of text. The choice is yours!

 

Please remember to share your work with me on Showbie or via email. I look forward to seeing all the different things that you produce!

Today’s Number of the Day is… 382

  • How many ways can you make and represent this number?
  • Can you use addition, subtraction or multiplication to make this number?
  • Can this number be shared equally into two groups?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

Today’s we’re going to work on our super sentence writing skills.

 

Linking words together in the right way makes your writing easy to understand and interesting to read. When you are writing, words are grouped together into sentences. Different types of sentence do different jobs. Sentences can state a fact, ask a question, give an order or even express an emotion.

 

Begin your learning today by watching this video about how to write a sentence correctly…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zm6wjhv

 

There are a few simple rules you need to follow to make sure your sentences are clear:

 

  1. Sentences need a capital letter at the beginning and a punctuation mark at the end, like a full stop (.), a question mark (?) or an exclamation mark (!).
  2. All sentence need to include a subject (who or what) and a verb (a doing word).
  3. Sentences must make complete sense all on their own.

 

Now watch and join in with this fun clip from Super Movers to remind yourself about the importance of punctuation in sentences… https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-english-punctuation-with-karim-hacker/zrksqp3

 

Check how well you’ve understood the learning by putting the sentences into the correct order in Activity 1… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zm6wjhv

 

Then complete the first activity sheet attached below to recap your sentence punctuation. You need to decide which punctuation mark goes at the end of each sentence. Will it be a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark? Finish by writing a question sentence about the final the picture. You can either print out the activity sheet or just copy out the sentences on a piece of paper, adding the correct punctuation at the end.

 

Now have a go at the second activity, writing some super sentences of your own. Follow the instructions on the sheet attached.

 

Extension – can you write a paragraph (5-7 sentences) about your favourite Superhero? Remember to use the features of sentence writing.

 

Please share your super sentence work with me on Showbie or via email. I look forward to reading them!

 

Maths:

Warm-up your Maths minds today by recapping your 3 times table facts… https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-maths-the-3-times-table/z6sw382

 

Today’s Maths focus is subtracting two 3-digit numbers. Begin your learning by watching this video explaining how we subtract large numbers using the column method…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvm72sg

 

If the numbers are too high or too difficult to subtract in your head, write them down in columns. Separate the numbers into ones, tens and hundreds. List the numbers in a column and always start with the ones first.

Remember:

  • Estimate first and check afterwards. It's a good idea to estimate a rough answer first and always check your actual answer.
  • Subtraction is the opposite to addition. So subtraction can always be checked by adding. Check that 182 - 37 = 145 by doing the sum: 145 + 37 = 182
  • Look out for these words in problems: take away, difference, less than, minus, decrease, fewer than, reduce. They all indicate subtraction.

 

Once you have watched the video, have a go at finding the answer to 548 - 125. Then use the step by step guide to check your answer is correct. Follow the same processes to work out: what is 343 - 237?

 

Now that you are feeling confident with subtracting 3-digit numbers, complete the subtraction sums on the attached worksheet. You do not need to print the work sheet unless you find it easier to do so. It is a good idea to practice writing your sums into columns just like we would in our Maths books. 

 

Extension: Here is a game, similar to yesterday but this time using subtraction! All you will need to play is a pack of playing cards (or your own homemade number cards), some paper, a pencil and a bucket or a similar container for each player… https://bam.files.bbci.co.uk/bam/live/content/zmtx6v4/pdf#sa-link_location=blocks&intlink

 

Creative Afternoon:

Why not begin your afternoon with some yoga. Follow this link for 3 short video’s that will help to strengthen your core and focus your inner thoughts…

https://www.yogaatschool.org.uk/your-free-video-and-game-resources/

 

You will need to open each video individually beginning with the Opening Stage followed by the Sequence Stage and end with the Relaxation Stage.

 

Please send me some pictures of you doing your Yoga at home either on Showbie or via email. I look forward to seeing all the different stretches that you manage!

 

Now that you’re nice and relaxed, I would like you recap the countries within our continent, Europe. Begin by having a go at labelling as many of the countries in Europe as you can using a pencil before looking at the map of Europe (attached below) and adding in as many of the other countries as possible.

 

Extension: Can you locate and colour the following countries?

  • Greece – red
  • Spain – blue
  • United Kingdom – yellow
  • Finland – green
  • Germany – orange

Please continue to read every day! You could select a book from home to read or use your personal logins for Read Theory and MyOn to access different texts each day. Another great way to enjoy a story could be through Audible, who are still currently offering free audio books to download!

 

If you would like to write a review about any of the exciting books you’ve enjoyed at home, then I’d love to hear about them.

 

I look forward to seeing all your hard work that you produce today.

Today is Nounsday and your Word of the Day is… colossus 

  • Can you write a definition?
  • Can you think of some synonyms?
  • Can you use this word in a perfect sentence?
  • Spell-round: write the word ten times forwards. Now, without looking at the word, can you spell it backwards out loud?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

 

English:

Lots of you enjoyed reading the short story about the Greek girl Arachne on Friday. Today, I would like you use the attached storyboard template to re-tell The Story of Arachne in your own words.

 

Begin by reading the story again (I have attached it below for anyone who missed it) to remind yourself of the characters and main events of the story. The storyboard template suggests dividing the story into 6 sections however, you may find you need more or even less sections to your story. Remember to summarise the main events when re-telling the story using pictures and words.   

 

Alternatively, you could produce a short film of you re-telling the story using pictures and voice-over, or a digital storyboard using your computer or tablet. I am looking forward to seeing how you choose to present The Story of Arachne.

 

Phonics:

For those of you who want to continue to practice your Phonics, follow the link below to an optional daily Read Write Inc. Phonics lesson. You can find the lesson for practicing your Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10:30am which will be followed by a spelling session at 10:45…

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ?reload=9&fbclid=IwAR37YGJcDpl7TdXpuBi77zd8Sr8sLCmLzHMw9tEAM-A3RT4HnKXohgAEj5o

 

Maths:

Today’s Maths focus is about revising how we add 3-digit numbers together using the column method.

 

Begin by following this link to watch a sort clip about how we use the column method to add two large numbers together… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z72dwty.

 

Remember that when writing down your sums into columns, you need to separate the numbers into ones, tens and hundreds. List the numbers in a column and always start adding with the ones first.

  • Estimate first and check afterwards - it's a good idea to estimate a rough answer first and then check your actual answer.
  • Order doesn't matter - remember that 345 + 129 is the same as 129 + 345.
  • Key words - look out for these words in problems: total, sum, altogether, more. They all indicate an addition calculation.

 

Once you have watched the video, have a go at finding the answer to 343 + 315. Then use the step by step guide to check your answer is correct. Follow the same processes to work out: what is 343 + 329?

 

Now that you are feeling confident with adding 3-digit numbers together, complete the addition sums on the attached worksheet. You do not need to print the work sheet unless you find it easier to do so. It is a good idea to practice writing your sums into columns just like we would in our Maths books.  

 

Extension: If you’d like another Maths challenge today, then here is a game that will allow you to put your knowledge of three-digit numbers through its paces. All you will need is a pack of playing cards (or your own homemade number cards), some paper, a pencil and a bucket or a similar container for each player… https://bam.files.bbci.co.uk/bam/live/content/zmtx6v4/pdf#sa-link_location=blocks&intlink

 

Please remember to share your fabulous Maths with me on Showbie or via email. I look forward to seeing how you get on!  

 

Creative Afternoon:

Many of you completed some excellent research about our new topic ‘Ancient Greece’ last week! Today I would like you to create a timeline of Ancient Greece.

 

I have attached some pictures that you could put in order or you could draw some of your own. When creating your timeline remember that the events should be in chronological order so you will need to check the dates carefully. Your timeline should begin around 776BC and end around 146BC.

 

Please remember to upload a picture of your timeline to Showbie or alternatively, you can email it to me. I look forward to seeing all your creative work!

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

For English today, I would like you to recap what verbs are and identify them within a sentence.

Begin by following this link where you can watch 2 short videos. The first clip will explain what a verb is and why it is important to include verbs in our sentences. The second clip will show you some verbs in action… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zfc2mfr 

 

A verb is a word used to describe an action, state or occurrence. Verbs can be used to describe an action (doing something). They can also be used to describe a state (being or feeling something). A verb can even be used to describe an occurrence (something happening). When writing, make sure every sentence includes a verb!

 

Once you’ve recapped verbs, have a go at completing the two short interactive activities below the videos. Then, I would like you to write five sentences of your own about what the gorilla monster in the first video got up to in the town. Remember to choose the best verb you can for each sentence.

 

Up-levelling: Now take your 5 sentences and underline all the verbs you have used. Then use the Verbs Help Card (attached below), just like we would when in school, to up-level the verbs that you’ve chosen. This will make your sentences even more interesting and exciting!

 

Phonics: For those of you who want to continue to practice your Phonics, follow the link below to an optional daily Read Write Inc. Phonics lesson. You can find the lesson for practicing your Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10:30am which will be followed by a spelling session at 10:45…

Maths:

Today’s maths will really get you thinking! Below is a picture of a Tangram:

Challenging: First take some time to explore the Tangram by cutting up the shapes and seeing what different animals and objects you can make. I have attached some possible ideas and templates below. If you are unable to print out the Tangram then ask an adult to help you draw and colour one of your own.

More Challenging: Now you’ve had some time to explore the different shapes I would like you to sort them into 3 groups of the same size. Try folding the shapes in half to see if they are the same.

Superstar Challenge: Can you fill out the tables below? I have done the first one for you!

HINT: You might need to cut up the shapes! Please share some photos of your Tangram creating on Showbie or send them to me via email! I can’t wait to see where this activity takes you all!

 

Creative Afternoon:

Royal Crown Derby’s

‘Make a Mug, Make a Difference’ campaign.

 A competition is now open for young people to design a mug that celebrates the NHS.  The winning mugs will then be produced by Royal Crown Derby who aim to make and sell 26,299 mugs, representing and celebrating every day that the NHS has been making our lives better since its formation on 5 July 1948 to its 72nd anniversary in 2020. 

 

Royal Crown Derby are donating all profits to NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent appeal.  The mugs are available to order now and personalised gift messaging is complimentary. 

  

In addition, they hope that this campaign will give young people an engaging challenge, showcase creativity and encourage education about the NHS.

 

There will be two prize winners who will:

Wednesday 22nd April 2020

 

Good morning, Class 3 and welcome to Wonderful Wednesday!

 

Well done once again to everyone for engaging in so many of our home-learning tasks every day! I really enjoyed seeing everyone’s maps and Geography skills yesterday.  I hope you are ready to engage with today’s exciting tasks.

 

TODAY'S FIRST CHALLENGE OF THE DAY... What book will Mrs Hanham read next?

Go to the Homepage of the website (www.walfordprimaryschool.co.uk), look at the Twitter feed and read 'all tweets'.  Alternatively, ask your parents to help you by getting them to access school Twitter feed (@WalfordSchool).

 

As you browse all the AMAZING work being created and shared on Twitter by all the wonderful Walford children, look out for the question! Mrs Hanham needs some help! She is ready to read her next exciting book but what should it be?

Have your say by answering the question and remember to 'like' anything that makes you smile by pressing the 'LOVE' button.

 

PE with Joe – If you’re enjoying your routine PE lesson with Joe Wicks each morning then here’s the link once again for you to follow at 9am…

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

Alternately, you could follow this link to the BBC Super Movers website where you can recap your 8 times tables while getting active and feeling energised…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks2-maths-the-8-times-table-with-filbert-fox/z4mrhbk

 

Today’s Number of the Day is… 534

  • How many ways can you make and represent this number?
  • Can you use addition, subtraction or multiplication to make this number?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

Follow this link to Jane Considine’s Super Sentence Stacking English lesson. At 9:45am Jane will announce the focus of the day and then at 10:30 she will set you your writing task 😊

https://www.youtube.com/user/Devouefrenchbulldogs/featured

Don’t forget to upload a picture of your sentences to Showbie or email them to me. I can’t wait to see what you produce!

 

Maths:

Today’s Maths focus is about comparing two 3-digit numbers and amounts. Follow this link to learn all about how we compare numbers… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhpq7nb

 

First you will need to follow the pirate themed slides all about how you compare amounts using mathematical symbols (< > =). In the pirate-themed pictures, they compare gold coins. Can you think of other amounts and quantities that you might compare?

 

As you go through the slides have a go at representing the different amounts that are being compared in different ways. For example, you might use blocks, draw cakes, place value counters or even draw your base 10 equipment.

 

Once you have explored the learning, have a go at playing the ‘Comparing 3-digit Numbers’ game that I have attached below. If you are unable to print out the pirate dice then you can simply use a normal one or this online interactive one… https://nrich.maths.org/6717

 

Creative Afternoon:

As we’ve been looking at all the different animals including human, this afternoon I would like you to create a collage of an animal of your choice (this does of course include humans).

 

Your collage could include a variety of materials that you have in and around your home such as: torn newspapers, magazines, tissue paper, card, leaves, sticks, recycled boxes/ plastic… the possibilities are endless!

 

Remember to think carefully about the colours of your animal when choosing your materials. Here are some examples to get your creative juices flowing:

TOP TIPS: Find all your materials first and sort them into piles of different colours, this will help you fill in each section of your animal. Also, if you don’t have any glue then a flour and water paste works well!

 

Have fun and enjoy this therapeutic crafting activity! I look forward to seeing the amazing pieces of art that you produce. :)

Please continue to read every day! You could select a book from home to read or use your personal logins for Read Theory and MyOn to access different texts each day. Another great way to enjoy a story could be through Audible, who are still currently offering free audio books to download!

Tuesday 21st April 2020

 

Good morning, Class 3 and welcome to Terrific Tuesday!

 

Well done to everyone for such a fantastic start to our Summer Term of home-learning yesterday! I hope you are up and ready to engage with today’s exciting home learning tasks today.

 

YOUR FIRST CHALLENGE OF THE DAY... Who has won a Walford Oscar?  

 

Go to the Homepage of the website (www.walfordprimaryschool.co.uk), look at the Twitter feed and read 'all tweets'.  Alternatively, ask your parents to help you by getting them to access school Twitter feed (@WalfordSchool).  

 

Can you find the link to a special treat for you all?  If you find it, remember to 'like' it by pressing the 'LOVE' button.

 

PE with Joe – If you’re enjoying your routine PE lesson with Joe Wicks each morning then here’s the link once again for you to follow at 9am…

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

 

Alternately, if you would rather begin your day with some yoga that will help you focus then follow this link for a Wizard of Oz adventure…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_3weVPH0-U

 

Today’s is Adjectiveday and your Word of the Day is… burly   

  • Can you write a definition?
  • Can you think of some synonyms?
  • Can you write a sentence including this verb and an interesting adverb?
  • Can you learn to spell this word by writing it as a spelling pyramid?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

Today’s focus for English is all about pronouns. Begin your learning by watching this video about what pronouns are and when we use them… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhp3bdm

 

Pronouns replace nouns. If we didn't have pronouns, we'd have to keep repeating our nouns and that would make our sentences awkward and repetitive. Pronouns are short words like it, she, he, you, we, they, us and them. They are used to describe either individuals or groups of people, rather than using their name or names.

 

Now watch the second clip (using the same link as above) to learn about different examples of pronouns. The clip is followed by 2 interactive activities that you might want to have a go at to practice using pronouns.

 

Then complete the Pronoun Practice activity sheet attached below. You can choose between the Challenging* More Challenging** or Superstar Challenge***. When you're done, use the answers to self-assess your work! Remember to share your grammar learning with me on Showbie or via email. 

 

Maths:

I have found an exciting game for you to play at home called ‘Dotty Six for Two’. You will need to find a partner for today’s maths game. You will also need a 1 to 6 dice (if you don’t have one then follow this link for an interactive one… https://nrich.maths.org/6717)

Begin by drawing a grid that looks like this:

Take turns with the adult to throw the dice and draw that number of dots in one of the boxes on the grid. Put all of your dots in one of the boxes. You can't split them up and you can't have more than six dots in a box. When a box is full, you could put a tick in the corner like this:

Keep going until there are three ticks in a row or column or diagonal. The winner is the person who puts the last tick. Now, can you change the game to make your own version? Maybe the aim now is to get 10 dots in each box?

 

Don’t forget to upload some pictures of your Maths fun to Showbie or send them via email!

 

Creative Afternoon:

For this afternoon’s creative task, we’re going to practice our map reading skills! First follow this link to watch how Sue Venir uses a map to find her way to a castle in Shropshire…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zhtyvk7

 

Now read the information below the video about what a map is and how it is used. There are lots of different types of maps and they can come in many different forms.

 

After reading the information, watch the second video (using the same link as above) of tour guide Tess who is practicing her map-reading skills. She uses string to measure the winding roads on a map and calculate the distance from Ben Nevis to Aviemore in Scotland.

 

Activity:

Now that you have explored the uses of different maps, you could have a go at drawing a map of your street or local area. To help you with this you might want to find your local area using Google Maps. Use the template attached to draw your map and remember to upload it to Showbie or alternatively, you can email it to me. I can’t wait to see your geography skills in action!

Please continue to read every day! You could select a book from home to read or use your personal logins for Read Theory and MyOn to access different texts each day. Another great way to enjoy a story could be through Audible, who are still currently offering free audio books to download!

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

Today I would like you to read and enjoy this book explaining COVID-19 and social distancing for children… https://www.flipsnack.com/CSKidsBooks/what-s-going-on.html

 

The book is written like a poem with the second and fourth line of each verse rhyming.  

I would now like you to have a go at writing your own poem about your thoughts, feelings and experiences over the past few weeks of home-learning. You might want to add some colourful illustrations, just like the book. Your poem does not have to rhyme but it would be amazing if it did!

 

Don’t forget to upload your poems to Showbie or email them to me. I look forward to reading your poetry!

 

Phonics:

For those of you who want to continue to practice your Phonics, follow the link below to an optional daily Read Write Inc. Phonics lesson. You can find the lesson for practicing your Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10:30am which will be followed by a spelling session at 10:45…

Maths:

Follow this link for some interactive and engaging fun to recap how we write 3-digit numbers using words and numerals… https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zdgdwty

 

Begin by watching short animation about Place Value and then have a go at the Dinosaur Digits Activity. After that you can show just how much you know about 3-digit numbers by completing the White Rose activity sheet that I have attached below.

 

Additional Game: If you fly through this activity and want even more of a 3-digit number challenge then you could have a go at representing more 3-digit numbers of your own using a pack of playing cards. Take 3 different cards and challenge yourself to make the smallest and biggest number possible.

Please remember to share your fabulous maths with me on Showbie or via email.  

 

Creative Afternoon:

WE HAVE A NEW TOPIC! We are moving on from The Celts into… ANCIENT GREECE. With a new topic comes a new amount of exciting research and learning.

Class 3 Home-Learning

Still image for this video
Here is a very tiny collection of just some of the amazing thing's Class 3 have been achieving at home over the last two weeks! Keep up the fantastic work everyone, you are simply remarkable!

Good morning, Class 3 and welcome to Fabulous Friday!

 

We’ve nearly reached the end of our SECOND week of home-learning and I must say you’ve all continued to show just how amazing you are at learning! Continue sending through your pictures and submitting all your super work to Showbie/ via email.

 

Now that we've nearly completed another week of home learning, you might want to write another recount summarising this week. You could add it to last Friday's recount writing and call it Chapter 2. Soon you will have an entire book of memories to look back on and enjoy reading. 

 

PE with Joe – TODAY IS FANCY-DRESS-FRIDAY!! If you’ve been following Joe Wicks at 9am every morning just like me, then you’ll know that today is all about doing PE wearing your best fancy-dress costume. Follow this link to get involved…

I would love to see some pictures of you getting active while dressed up so please send them through Showbie or via email.

 

Today is Long-Word-Friday and your Word of the Day is… hysterically  

  • Can you use a dictionary to find the definition?
  • Can you write a sentence including this word?
  • Can you spell the word using a pyramid?
  • How many other words can you make from the letters in this word?

 

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

 

English:

Here is a lovely poem about the Ocean of Dreams:

In the ocean of dreams I saw…

Three friendly dolphins

Playing in the sun.

 

In the ocean of dreams I saw…

Six sneaky starfish

Shuffling across the sea bed.

 

In the ocean of dreams I saw…

Four fishing trawlers

Dredging the frothy waves.

 

Can you add 3 more verses to the poem following the same structure?

  1. Begin each verse with: In the ocean of dreams I saw…
  2. Now think of a number.
  3. Add an adjective (e.g. friendly)
  4. Next add a noun (e.g. whale or jellyfish)
  5. Finally add a line to explain what your noun is doing.

You might want and add some pictures of the Ocean of Dreams to your poem. Don’t forget to upload your poetry writing to Showbie or send it via email. I look forward to reading them all.

 

Maths:

Below is a picture of an unfolded piece of paper. Can you work out what shape is made when it’s folded up using the crease pattern shown?

Follow this link for a sneak peek at what the shape should be… https://nrich.maths.org/12205

 

Challenge: Can you make one of these shapes with a new piece of paper?
Now make several of the same shape from A4, A5 and A6 pieces of paper in two contrasting colours.

 

Even More of a Challenge: Take a large and small shape made from your first colour and a medium shape made from your second colour.
Make a pattern from your shapes, by laying them on top of each other, that fits both of these rules:
You must be able to see at least part of each shape.
All three shapes must fit inside the perimeter (outline) of the largest shape.

Superstar Challenge: Use a new large, medium and small shape to recreate the same pattern but in opposite colours from your Even More of a Challenge.
Place these two patterns next to each other and continue to fold and add to your pattern until you’ve made a flower. 
Can you predict how many of your original Even More of a Challenge pattern you will need?

Take this challenge as far as you wish, it will really get you thinking! I would love to see some pictures of the shapes and flowers that you create from this folding maths task so please remember to share your pictures on Showbie or via email.

 

Creative Afternoon:

While exploring the different periods of pre-history in Class 3 this year, we’ve made some timelines of the different events that happened in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We made the timelines to help us understand the chronological order of the different events in each time period.

 

What I would like you to do this afternoon is to create a timeline of your life so far. Highlight some of the exciting and memorable things that have happened to you from birth all the way up to today. You may need to have a chat with your family about the things that happened when you were a baby. Remember to order the events chronologically (in the order that they occurred.)

 

I look forward to seeing each individual timeline. Please remember to share your pictures on Showbie or via email. I will try to share the timelines on Twitter so that you can also enjoy seeing each other’s life stories.

 

Drop Everything and READ!!

Read the short text and see if you can spot the list of items that have been washed. Remember that when creating a list, we need to use commas to separate the items. Once you have read the story, complete the following task on the next page.

 

Extension: Now make a list of things that you would expect to find in a treasure chest.

 

Creative Afternoon:

This week, some of you have been sending through amazing French work that you’ve been doing as some extra learning at home! I thought we could all have a go at learning some new French words all about food glorious food!

 

Follow this link to watch Spud and Soda ordering some different foods in French…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z82kjxs

Design a poster/ leaflet/ short movie all about the different foods you like and dislike in French. You could draw the different foods and label them or you could find out the names of some of the foods you have in the cupboards and fridge at home.

 

I have attached a word search that might help you to learn some new French words as well as a helpful poster.

 

You can also log in to https://www.educationcity.com and complete the French activities on Food.

 

Please upload your poster/ leaflet/ shot movie to Showbie or you could email them to me. Happy French learning everyone!

Creative Afternoon:

At the beginning of this term we explored settlement. We looked at the sort of things that were essential for survival in a settlement (water, shelter, food, fuel supply) as well as other things that might have been desirable (entertainment, shops, transport links, healthcare, factories, green space.)

 

For this afternoon’s creative task, I would like you to use the attached sheet to create a map of an ‘Ideal Place to Settle’. You will need to consider the essential things that you need in your settlement before then adding some desirable extras. Remember to avoid being open to attack, prone to flooding and exposed to bad weather. Your map will need a key to show clearly where there is a road, house, shop, river, park or any other desirable extras.

 

Please remember to upload a picture of your settlement to Showbie or alternatively, you can email it to me. I can’t wait to see the map of your ideal place to settle.

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

 

English:

A little, red boat is launched. We don't know who by or where but it sets off on a journey. As the boat travels on it's linear journey it sees some amazing sites. The boat gets tossed and turned by the weather, it gets caught up in a war and becomes a floating wreck. Watch the following link carefully to see the little, red boats journey…

https://www.literacyshed.com/little-boat.html

I would now like you to write a story about the little red boat. You could write about the journey he went on in the video or create your own adventure for the little red boat.

Remember to use the structure of writing a story…

  1. Beginning: introduce your character and describe the setting.
  2. Build-up: what things happen? What clues are there? What is said? How do you build up the excitement?
  3. The problem or dilemma:
  4. The resolution:
  5. The ending: you might have a full stop ending (a happily ever after), an exclamation mark ending (something unexpected happens) or a question mark ending (leaving the reader wondering).

Don’t forget to upload your creative story writing sentences to Showbie or email it to me. I can’t wait to read these exciting adventures!  

 

Maths – Tenths:

Remember to keep practicing your times tables using Times Table Rock Stars…

https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student

 

Creative Afternoon:

I hope you enjoyed wiring about the little red boat during this morning’s imaginative writing task.

For the creative task this afternoon, I would like you to make a little red boat of your own. You could use a range of materials for your boat such as… empty plastic bottles/ cups, egg cartons, sticks and straws, twine, string, ribbon, tape, craft foam, card stock and cardboard (sails), stickers, permanent markers, pipe cleaners and any other decorating items you have lying around the house.

       

Your boat can be anything you would like it to be however, it must do one thing… FLOAT! When your boat is ready and waterproof place it in the sink/ a bowl of water and check to see if it floats.  

Challenge: Why do you think it does/ doesn’t float? Can it hold a small item without sinking?

 

Please remember to upload a picture of your boat both before and after testing to Showbie or alternatively, you can email it to me. I can’t wait to see these fantastically creative boats put to the test.

Creative Afternoon:

Our Science Topic this term is to explore Animals Including Humans! Today I would like you to explore the human skeleton.

Warm-up:

Begin by drawing the bones in your body.

Feel your bones to get an idea of their size, shape and location. Once you’ve finished, compare it to the labelled skeleton attached below.

Think about...

  • Were you able to identify the bones in your body?
  • Which ones confused you? Why?
  • Do you recognise any of the common bone names that are labelled on the skeleton?

Activity:

Now build your own skeleton and label all the bones using the common bone names. You could create your skeleton using the printable cut out sheet (attached below) or draw your own. If you were feeling creative, you might want to build your skeleton from straws or pasta shapes.

      

Challenge: Today you have used the common bone names to label a human skeleton, can you now find any of the more specific names for these bones? For example, your skull is also called your cranium and your hips are also called your pelvis.

Please remember to upload/send your work to Showbie or alternatively, you can email it to me.

Daily Activities / Live Lessons

English:

This week has brought many changes. While still learning every day, many of us have been in a different place. Take a moment to gather your thoughts and reflect upon your week by following this helpful mindfulness video…

https://family.gonoodle.com/activities/bring-it-down

Now that you’ve had a moment to gather your thoughts, I would like you to have a go at writing a recount of your week. You may choose to write about each day or just focus on one particular day of the week.

Some things to consider…

  • Write your recount in the first person because it happened to you! E.g. "I felt nervous as I woke up Monday morning and realised I wasn’t going to school."
  • Use the past tense because it has already happened. E.g. "It was the most exciting thing I had ever made before!"
  • Your recount needs to be written in chronological order, starting at the beginning. Use adverbs such as: firstly, next, then and finally.
  • Using descriptive words will make it seem like your reader is there with you. E.g. "I created the most magnificent bird with a fiery, red chest and small, delicate eyes.”
  • Consider your favourite parts of the day/ week as well as maybe something you’d like to change next week.

Here is a useful link if you would like some more support on writing a recount…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z2yycdm/articles/zgfhcj6

It will be wonderful if you could add a picture to the end of your recount that sums up your week. In weeks to come you’ll enjoy looking back on what the first week of home learning meant to you.

Creative Afternoon:

For our Topic this term we have been exploring the Celts. We’ve learnt that many Celts used to live in Roundhouses. These were round huts with pointed roofs and walls that were made from wattle and daub (woven wood plastered with straw and mud.)

 

For this afternoons task I would like you to read the information I have attached about A Celtic Roundhouse and then have a go at creating one of your own. Consider what the roundhouse would have looked life from the outside and what it might have had inside (see the information sheet for ideas.) You might draw a picture, create a painting or even make a model. Be as creative as can be!   

It would be lovely if you could share your creations on Showbie or via my email. I looked forward to seeing them as always.

Take a photo of your rainbow in the window and send it to me! Go on a walk, how many rainbows can you find?  Remember to follow social distancing rules. #chasetherainbow

 

English:

We’re on to a new chapter in our Headstart Pirate Grammar book. I have attached the next part of the story below along with today’s grammar task.

Read the short text and see if you can find all the full stops, question marks and exclamation marks.

Remember…

  • A full stop is the most common way of ending a sentence. As long as a sentence is not asking a question or expressing strong feeling or emotion, it will probably end in a full stop.
  • A question mark ends a sentence that is a question. It may begin with; what/ when/ where/ how/ why.
  • An exclamation mark ends a sentence that shows a strong feeling like surprise or anger. You could also use one to show someone is shouting or raising their voice.

Once you have read the story, complete the following task on the next page.

Creative Afternoon:

Our Science Topic this term is to explore Animals Including Humans! Today I would like you to explore the 3 different types of skeletons: endoskeleton, exoskeleton and hydrostatic skeleton.

 

Animals can be sorted into vertebrates and invertebrates. The difference between vertebrates and invertebrates is simple; vertebrates have a backbone (spine) and invertebrates don’t.

 

All vertebrates have an endoskeleton. However, invertebrates can be divided again between those with an exoskeleton and those with a hydrostatic skeleton. Endoskeleton means the skeleton is on the inside. Exoskeleton means the skeleton is on the outside. Hydrostatic skeleton means the animal has no bones.

 

Use the attached PowerPoint to explore some information about the different types of skeleton and then complete the ‘Sorting Skeleton Types’ activity. You may wish to print the attached sheet and cut and stick the animals into the table or you could draw your own table and animals.

 

Please remember to upload/send your work to Showbie or alternatively, you can email it to me.
