I hope you’ve all had a great weekend and still staying positive in these difficult times. See below for tomorrow’s home learning.
Phonics on https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ (phase 2/3/4/5) I will email you all individually to discuss which phase your child is working at.
Start to learn this week’s spellings
Can you have a go at writing a story for the picture I have given you of a wolf. Use your imaginations and discuss with an adult to share your thoughts and ideas before you start writing. If you find it tricky to write the story then draw some pictures in the storyboard that I’ve attached to tell me your story instead.
Arithmetic Summer test 11 (challenging)
Arithmetic Spring test 1
Main Maths activity
In Maths this week’s theme is mass/weight and volume/capacity. Today’s focus is on mass/weight and I would like you to look at the pictures and cut and stick the objects on the correct sides of the scales. This is to show that you understand what objects are heavier or lighter. Remember that when a heavier object will be at the bottom of the scales and a lighter object will be at the top end of the scales.
Topic- This week’s topic theme is ‘What is growing?’
Today I would like you to explore the plants growing in your house/garden/on a walk/in your local park. Talk about what they are and what they will look like when they are fully grown. You might want to sketch the flowers that you find or maybe pick a selection (if they are wild flowers) to make a collage to label or take photographs and annotate. Write down any information that you find out about the plants you choose/find. I would love to see today’s work so please send me some pictures. I’m also going to do this activity today at home and I’ll send you photographs of what flowers I find.
I hope you enjoy todays learning. If you need any support regarding the work that I’ve set or any support with anything else then please don’t hesitate to email me.
