Today’s afternoon activity is our second history lesson on Transport. Please work through the power point, which looks at how transport used 100 years ago was different to today and what sort of things affected the transport choices made. Do these choices still affect us today. (You will need to scroll down the slides, until you see lesson 2.)
As a follow up task, I would like you to compare the transport in the picture- car versus bike and train versus plane. Which transport is better? Why is it better? When would you choose the one form of transport over another? Is one more expensive? Does one cover more distances? Is one form of transport faster than another? etc
Year is can write down an idea for each, and then just discuss their other ideas, or have them scribed, whilst reception children can just discuss their ideas.
Have a lovely day!
Further to the COVID-19 Update letter from Mr Ames explaining that ‘step-up’ measures for Class 1 have been extended, please be advised that the decision has been made to cancel Forest School entirely for this half term. Whilst we are disappointed to have to do this, there would only be two weeks left of the term. Refunds will be issued in due course for all those who have paid for this club.

Sorry for the late upload, but I’ve had some technical difficulties at home this morning. I hope that those of you with covid are feeling better and you’ve managed to enjoy your weekend. Please find below the home learning for today. Remember, If you are poorly with covid, don’t feel obligated to complete the work.
Maths: I would like you to practice your skills in finding one more and one less. Remember, to find one more we add 1 to a number (+ 1) and to find one less, we take 1 away (- 1). Please follow the link to play the robot game. select ‘one more’ for numbers up to 10 and repeat by selecting one less for numbers up to 10. Can you solve the +1 and -1 number sentences and match them to the right answer?
Literacy: I would like you to continue your work looking at using capital letters. This time, remembering that we always use a capital letter to start a sentence. Can you read the sentences below and the rewrite them, so that capital letters are in the right place. The first 3 sentences are easier, whilst the last 3 are more challenging. Pick the 3 sentences to match your child’s confidence level. Don’t forget to add the capital letters in the right place too!
Afternoon activity: Today I have an art lesson for you. Our art topic this term is looking at the work of Guiseppe Arcimboldo. He is well known for painting portraits, where the subject’s faces are made up of fruits/vegetables/plants of the season they were painted in. See below to access the teaching power point, where you will be able to look at and critique some of his most famous portraits:
As a follow up task, I would like you to experiment with some colour mixing. See if you can create the colours you need to paint a picture of a fruit or vegetable, i.e. Can you mix primary colours to create orange and green to paint a carrot, or purple and green to create a bunch of grapes etc? Discuss what they think the primary colours of red, blue and yellow might make if you mix two of them together. Maybe watch this song to see if you were right:
Then get down to the mixing using paint if you hav it at home. If not, try with pencil crayons, felt tips or wax crayons.
Phonics: Today, we will be learning our first phoneme- s. Follow the link to watch the teaching video.
Then have a go at writing ‘s’ in different ways. Can you go on a ‘s’ hunt around your house? What objects begin with ‘s’?
Maths: Please watch today’s lesson video looking at sorting objects. Stop the video to discuss the questions being asked.
Afterwards, can you gather some objects from around your house? These could be buttons like in the video, different leaves from your garden, socks etc. Can you work out different ways to sort them? Can you sort them by colour/pattern? Length? Size? etc. Justify how you have sorted them.

Buried treasure game. Can you read the words and decide if they are a real word or a rubbish word? Sort them into the right side of the table.
In Literacy, we have been working on constructing our own simple sentences, making sure that we use finger spaces between words, a capital letter at the start and a full stop at the end.
Can you write simple sentences to match these pictures. Think of sentences between 5-8 words long. i.e. The car is on the road. Use your phonics mats in your reading diary to help you when sounding out your words to spell them.
As a challenge, why not use a describing word to describe the vehicle i.e. The red car is on the road.
