Important Everyday Tasks

TT Rockstars

Learning your timetables is so important and this is the perfect opportunity to crack them!

https://ttrockstars.com/

 

Hit the Button

There are still lots of children that are using their fingers to make calculations such as 5 + 4 and 9 - 3. Learning additions and subtractions with answers of less than 20 off by heart is so helpful. Use the Number Bond button on the below website.

Reading

This can be reading to an adult, listening to an adult read a story, or even reading the subtitles on a television program! If you've read all of your books at home try the Borrow Box app, if you have a library card, you can download books for free.

 

P.E. 

We are lucky to be able to access our PE scheme online.  Make sure you keep up your exercise :) 

Real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun.

It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes (starting from this week) in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.

There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical wellbeing but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months. Here are the details to access real PE at home:

Don't forget . . . 

Joe Wicks will be posting a P.E. lesson each day on YouTube. Keeping fit and active is going to be so important over the next few weeks. Obviously it is important that care is taken when children are using YouTube as not all content on YouTube is child friendly.

An important message . . . . 

In these times of isolation and social distancing we know everybody will be using various social media and portals to keep in contact.  

It has come to our attention that some of our young children are using a fairly new app called "Houseparty" to hold video linked live conversations with their friends.  With that in mind we would like you to read the important e-safety advice attached in the form of a PDF below.  This app has an age guidance of 13+ therefore we ask you not to set up accounts for any of your children.  

If you are using it yourself we advise you to follow the advice on the PDF and lock your conversations with your loved ones to ensure others do not join your conversations in inappropriate ways.  

Thank you for taking care.

Well done!

You have finished the second week of our challenges!

Literacy

I tried to write some sentences to go with the picture, but when I read them back, they were really boring :(

Today’s challenge is to improve my sentences using adjectives, adverbs, prepositions and conjunctions to extend your ideas.  You might even want to add some of your own sentences.

The man walked across the grass. The door was open. There was a light.

Maths

Lots of people definitely found yesterday's fraction maths tricky.

Don't forget, if you are finding it tricky, have a go at  the revision files.

Or take a break from the White Rose maths and spend a bit of extra time on Timestable Rockstars or Hit the Button.

 

Lesson 4 is available on the White Rose Website but, based on responses to Wednesday's Maths, we have jumped to lesson 5 which covers a different aspect of fractions, equivalence.

Literacy

Read the story starter, look at the picture and then, answer the questions below. . . . .  remember there are no wrong answers, let your imagination run wild!

Two mysterious portals had appeared in the twilight. The first door burst open and beams of light poured through, filling the countryside with a warm, amber glow.

Sleepily, a man stumbled over the cool grass in a dream-like trance. The Earth seemed to stand still. Everything seemed to have stopped. All he could hear was the distant rumble of thunder, and the constant drone of the television within.

He was now just a few steps away. What lay beyond the mysterious door ahead? What might that world be like?

Question time!

Who is the man in the picture?

What do you think might be inside both rooms?

How did the lamp get there?

If the doors above were portals into the future and the past, which door would you visit first and why?

Is there more of the past or the future?

Should we think more about the past or the future? Is it important to think of both? Can you explain your thoughts?

This week is a fraction challenge. Download the lesson 3 file below.

Weekend Challenge

Friday's Challenges  27/03/2020

Welcome to our last challenges of the week . . .

Literacy

Sentence challenge

‘spindly branches like fingers’ is an example of a simile.

Can you think of other similes to describe the trees or the tunnel?

E.g. The tunnel’s walls were green like_________.

The tree branches swayed in the wind like________.

 

Now create your own similes to match the picture.  You might like to use some ideas from your Tuesday Challenge word banks.  Don’t forget to record your sentences carefully with neat writing, capital letters and full-stops.

 

Let us know how much you enjoyed the challenges this week so we can prepare more for next week.

 

Maths

It's more number operation practise to help you become experts in addition and subtraction!  Remember to check each section with a helpful adult or a calculator before you move on.

Your task is to research facts about plants. Record any useful information on a mind map, under the headings provided on the attached template.

Monday's Challenges  23/03/2020

Literacy

The Tunnel

Motionless, I stood gazing down the never-ending tunnel. The track extended as far as the eye could see, encased by walls of brightest green. The trees that lined the way grew tall, reaching up and over, interlocking their spindly branches like fingers trapping whoever dared to walk this treacherous route. It was like looking down nature’s kaleidoscope.

Where did the path lead? I had dreamt of this moment, but in my dream I couldn’t remember what happened next.

There was only one way to find out; I bravely took a step forward.

Question time

Try recording your answers using sentences with capital letter and full stops.

Who is the person entering the tunnel?

Where have they come from?

What will they find if they keep walking?

Why have they dreamt of this moment before? Does the dream have a meaning?

Who/what else has travelled through this tunnel before?

Does anyone else know they are there?

What lies behind the trees on either side?

Remember there are no wrong answers.  How far will your imagination take you?

 EXTRA:  Try looking up these words in  dictionary or online - kaleidoscope, extend, interlock

Maths

Try working through our addition puzzles.  Once you have completed a challenge, check with a calculator.  If you've got them all right, try the next challenge.  If not, can you work out what went wrong and have another go?  Then move on when you are ready.

 

Don't forget to let us know how you get on by sending us a message on Class Dojo.
