Today’s suggested activities

Happy Friday Class 1!

Today, we are going to be doing some recapping of our maths skills.

I would first like you to have a go at ordering and sequencing numbers, with this caterpillar number game: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ordering-and-sequencing/caterpillar-ordering

caterpillar ordering

There are lots of options for this game, so you can make it as challenging as you would like. Reception children should practice with numbers up to 20, whilst Year 1 children should be looking at numbers to 100.

You could also have a go at this game, where you have to collect the numbers in the right order to grow your caterpillar and turn him into a butterfly: https://www.tvokids.com/preschool/games/caterpillar-count

caterpillar ordering 2

Or why not have a go at these tasks looking at one more and one less than a number. Reception children should focus on numbers up to 10, progressing to numbers up to 20 for more of a challenge. You will need some finger paint for these activities:

Then see if you can have a go at these maths problems. Don’t forget, you can use jotting, pictures, or loose part resources to help you find the answers.

Have a lovely day!

There definitely seems to be a penguin theme!

For a super cool music lesson – head over to BBC Bitesize https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zdh8jhv and use sounds around your home to make music! You may want to download a free music software, like GarageBand and Audacity, there are some others out there too when you google.

Most importantly – get outside and enjoy the sunshine, get yourself moving and make fun memories 😀

I will update later with any work you send in to me, but I’ll wish you all a happy half term now Class 5 and hope to speak to or see you soon 🙂

Home learning activities for Friday 22nd May

Hurrah for Friday and breaking up for half term too! Fingers crossed for some lovely weather for us all to enjoy.  I just want to say that I am so impressed with all your home school learning. You have been amazing and I am one very proud teacher. Your parents/carers and you too have done so well and it has been fantastic to see the photos and updates. I can see from your photos that so many of you have grown so much taller since I last saw you, and I know you have learnt so many new things too and I cannot wait to be able to talk to you about all these wonderful things you can do.

Have a wonderful week off with your families. See you soon!

 

Puzzle for the day!

Time to unleash the big Suduko puzzle!  I will post the answers at the end of the day tomorrow but remember the rules from earlier this week if you need to check again.

Friday 22nd May – Challenge of the day!

 

Good morning and happy Friday! The last day before half term! I am collecting all of your updates this week and for one long update! As next week is half term, I won’t be setting any work on the class page or on Purple Mash.  All activities on Purple Mash have been extended until the week after half term.

Yesterdays challenge was all about Harry Potter and unscrambling the words. How did you do?

210520_HPScramble_answers

For todays challenge,  I have set another family challenge  – called Rebus .A rebus is a code or reference where pictures, letters, or symbols represent certain words or phrases.

During the Middle Ages, many families used rebuses to symbolise their family names or crest. In the modern age, rebuses are typically used as challenging riddles or puzzles and now are a regular in family quizzes!  Rebus (pronounced ree-buhs) is derived from the Latin phrase nōn verbīs sed rebus, meaning “not by words but by things.”

So, to solve these challenges, you need to say what you see. In the example below, you can see a th under storm –  so the answer is thunderstorm!

Have fun solving the rebus family challenge!

Writing task –  This week, I would like you to have a go at trying to write a funny story in no more than 500 words – which you can then enter for the ‘A Write Laugh’ story competition. Full details can be found here A Write Laugh and in the poster below.

A-Write-Laugh-Poster-scaled

So far this week, you have looked at inspiration for writing from your own experiences, created your own funny or quirky character, written hooks for your story and used a story map to plan your story. Today, is all about writing your funny story!

Task 5 – Write your story.
Use all the learning from this week to create your own funny story in less than 500 words. This can then be entered for the ‘A Write Laugh’ competition – which closes on 31st May 2020 – its your choice to enter!

Maths task – continuing with fractions, today, we are going to be adding two fractions where the answer could be greater than 1 on BBC Bitesize – Fractions Friday. You will need to watch the videos and record your notes in your workbook.  Then, have a go at the suggested activities.

Topic Task – After half term, our learning will change to our geography topic of Rivers.  For today, I would like you to watch the videos All about mountains on BBC Bitesize. Record notes in your workbook – choosing whichever method you prefer and try out the suggested activities.

Then, I would like to start a research project – called – The Journey of the River Severn – this will help you for our learning after half term.   You will need to research the following:

*the mountains where the river severn starts
*which towns does the River Severn pass through
*which other water sources or rivers join the River Severn
*where does the River Severn finish
*how long is the River Severn
*how does the width of the river change on its journey

During your research, you may wish to record a glossary of geographical vocabulary.  You can present your research how you choose – a mind map would be a fantastic way to record all your thinking – you could use different colours for each of the different questions. Try not to write too much detail – as each week after half term, you will have a research task all about rivers – good luck!

Science task – Whirlpools! In science, we have been learning all about different reactions and have carried out lots of different investigations.  Well today, I though it would be fun if you created your own vortex tornado or whirlpool!

First, watch the video Creating a tornado in a bottle.  Observe what happens to the different liquids in the bottles and then record your ideas in your workbook.

Then have a go at making one yourself!.  You will need two empty plastic bottles.  Fill one of them 3/4 full with water. Tape the neck ends of the bottles together tightly – Duck tape is really good to use here! Turn the bottles so the liquid filled one is on top and give the bottles a swirl. You will cause the water to move in a circle and cause a tornado. You could try using coloured liquid too! Have fun – but this investigation would be best done outside!

Have a fun-tastic day! Please keep your updates coming through to our class email class.fourteacher@taw.org.uk so that I can share all your brilliant learning with the class!

Keep smiling!

Today’s suggested activities

Happy Thursday Class 1!

I hope you enjoyed making and eating your hungry caterpillar snacks yesterday. I was very impressed with your creations.

Sorry for the late upload, but the website isn’t allowing me to upload any photos, pictures or documents into my post, so I do apologise.

Today we are going to look at the lifecycle of a caterpillar. First, I would like you to watch this timelapse video:

Can you discuss these questions:

  • What do you think was happening?
  • What happened to the caterpillar when it hung down from the branch?
  • How was the caterpillar different at the end?
  • How did the caterpillar transform into a butterfly?

We all love butterflies for their beautiful, brightly-coloured wings. But did you know that these fab flyers begin life as something completely different? As they grow, they undergo one seriously terrific transformation – a process known as “metamorphosis“.

National Geographic kids explains the process really well, so have a little go at some research:https: https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/animals/insects/butterfly-life-cycle/

For your main task then, I would like you to create your own model lifecycle of a butterfly. There are some lovely ideas for how to do this if you google ‘lifecycle of a butterfly crafts’, so have a look and see which one you’d like to have a go at.

Then have a go at writing some sentences to explain the four stages of a caterpillar’s metamorphosis. Remember:

  • Capital letters and full stops.
  • Finger spaces
  • Sound out your words to spell them

Sorry that I’m unable to provide you with any pictures or links. Hopefully, it will be back working by tomorrow’s post.

Challenge of the day 21.05.20

Good morning Class 5! We’re almost at the weekend and half term! 😀

Here is the answer for the challenge yesterday

puzzle_LI

For today’s challenge, have a go at this 6×6 sudoku

sudoku

If you aren’t sure on how to complete a 6×6 sudoku, then have a look at this video below which explains how to solve them

I have really enjoyed reading your writing this week – it’s almost like being back in school in our writing cycle! Today I would like you to plan all of your short story about the animal Olympics – like how we would at school! You can present your plan however you like, it might be a story mountain, it might be in a mindmap or you might just write it in a list. Remember that a plan is notes, bullet points and prompts to help your remember, you are not writing your story today – that will be tomorrow. Here is a guide of what structure your story could follow:

Paragraph 1 – Setting the scene: where are they? Think about what you have seen on TV during the Olympics, is it a crowded stadium or loud swimming pool or ice rink? Think about the 5 senses when you describe the setting.

Paragraph 2 – Introduce your character: this is where your character mindmap from Monday will be handy! Think about your super vocabulary for this paragraph. Describe how the animals have entered the scene, what they are doing as they prepare for the event? Think of the small details that might make the reader laugh!

Paragraph 3 – The action: this is where your paragraph from Tuesday can help, but try to expand it. The event has started – what problems might have occurred? How does your animal character do in the sport? Perhaps you can create suspense by hinting at some problem that might happen. Remember to keep varying your sentence starters and try not to use ‘and then’ too much!

Paragraph 4 – The result: What happened? Did they win or was there a big pile up and mess of animals? Have they been given a medal? It is up to you – if you want you could just leave it on a cliffhanger as they all reach the finish line at almost the same time and we never find out the winner!

Have fun with it, it is meant to be a funny short story, and try to practise your punctuation, spellings and descriptive language when you come to write.

For today’s maths activity, have a go at practising your knowledge of time with today’s lesson on http://www.iseemaths.com/lessons56/ and the activity sheet that goes with it 🙂

For some fun geography game that might help you remember countries, flags and capital cities head on over to https://world-geography-games.com/

I always love to hear what you’ve been doing! Here is some art work from Lewis following the lesson from yesterday and Lola’s science work on magnets!
