Home Learning

All staff are aiming to update work and activities weekly for your child, however there may be a point at which the class teacher becomes unwell and is unable to set work for a period of time. We will do our best to ensure there are general websites and activities for your child to use in the event of this happening. 

Thank you all for your understanding during this difficult time. We hope that you and your families stay healthy and well.

Lesson 3 - Recap what has happened so far. Draw a story map to show your understanding. You can use the text if you need to.

Lesson 4 - New Vocabulary words. See suggested games/activities from last week.

 

Useful website for Maths support

The following website is really useful to support your child with their learning in Maths. This is the scheme we follow at school for Maths and they have produced some online videos and support for children learning at home. Please check the website to see whether there are useful resources for what your child is learning in Maths each week.

Friday 20th March

 

Maths

LO: recognise a quarter (lesson 5) PowerPoint attached on Wednesday.

Again, please choose a suitable sheet or multiple sheets below.

1 star - developing, 2 stars - expected and 3 stars - exceeding/greater depth.

 

Phonics Friday

This is where we apply our phonics learning. We play games, read texts and basically immerse ourselves with our sound of the week.

LO: /j/ sound (Revision)

Below are two games to play. They will work best printed off, but if you can't then just copy the words into your home learning journal. Can you remember when a 'g' makes the 'j' sound? What is it usually followed by?

Can you find a rule for dge?

 

Reading

Please read for at least 15 minutes per day (either individually or together). We've signed up to Epic! (see below) so if you would like to read some different books, please take a look.

 

THERE IS NO DRAGON IN THIS STORY

LO: prediction

All the instructions are on the task sheet. Please complete all of them if you can. First of all look at the front cover. What do you predict it will be about? Make sure you use because to explain. Then repeat the task after you have read the blurb. The final task is to look at the middle pages and fill in the speech bubbles.

Thursday 19th March

Your child was sent home with a learning journal today so please complete all work inside it. You can either stick in the sheets/paper or write straight in the book.

 

Maths

LO: to find a half (lesson 4)

The PowerPoint is below. Please work through it with your child and then give them one of the worksheets below so they can apply what they have learnt. If you are able to go through it with them after to check their understanding, that would be fantastic.

Select a suitable sheet/sheets to complete below. The children do not have to do all of them, but they can do more than one if you choose. There is also a practical task which you may find is useful to complete before the worksheet.

1 star - developing, 2 stars expected and 3 stars exceeding/greater depth.

 

Writing

What happens to Rosa after the film? We saw her return to the clock tower and consequently the town was filled with colour again.

LO: Write the next part/ending of the story.

 

IDEAS - Does Rosa stay in the clock tower forever? Is she rescued? Does someone help her from the town? How does the clock work when she is not there?

Challenge - Try to make some links with other fairy tales and traditional tales.

 

We've worked a lot on vocabulary this week, so remember to up level your words and use adverbs to start your sentences. Spelling is very important so check your work carefully. Take your time and remember capital letters, full stops and lovely handwriting.

 

Reading

Please read for at least 15 minutes per day (either individually or together)

 

THERE IS NO DRAGON IN THIS STORY

We are due to start our new guided reading book today, so I am going to trial it on the website for you to complete at home. You do not need a copy of the text. I will provide everything for you. I will also let you know what you can read and when!

The first lesson is always vocabulary where we look at 4-5 words.  The children need to be able to read/recognise them, know the definition and  be able to explain it in their own words and use the words in the correct context. These words will come up in the text later in the week.

Below are the 4 words on a PowerPoint. Please spend 10-15 minutes on these words.

IDEAS - use a dictionary, write them in sentences, write them out and draw a picture, play charades, play splat, play bingo, play Pictionary etc. There are so many different ways to explore these words - you can choose how you do it. Have fun!

Wednesday 18th March

 

Maths

We are learning about fractions this week. I have attached the PowerPoint for the whole week below. It is full of repetition and reinforcement which is very important. The worksheets for the lesson today are also below. If you have a printer, please print them off and complete. If you don't, please copy the answers out.

You will need to choose the sheet to complete based on how your child has understood the PowerPoint.

1 star - developing, 2 star - expected and 3 star - exceeding/greater depth.

 

Writing

We have been using The Clock Tower film on Literacy Shed for our writing this week.

https://www.literacyshed.com/the-clock-tower.html

Yesterday the class concentrated on vocabulary and had to fill in the missing adjectives, verbs and adverbs (new). What words would you choose to use? Fill in the blanks (on the sheet attached below) with your best words. Make sure you read the whole sentence before you fill it in - it must make sense!

 

Reading

After two weeks of predicting and comparing, we finished our guided reading book today. Below is a video so your child can hear the end. It's worth it - no one in the class guessed what would happen!

https://youtu.be/rZpYMLp1LdQ

Write a book review now that we've finished it. Either create your own or use the template below.

Epic - Online Reading Platform

As we know it may be difficult to have access to books during Self-Isolation or working from home, we have signed children up to this online reading platform to enable children to access books on either a computer or laptop, iPad or phone. All that your child needs to do to access these is to follow the link below and then enter the class code: aej9661

 

Once into the platform, they should then select their name and they will be able to access a range of reading resources such as eBooks, audio books and videos. 

As teachers, we are able to set specific texts and quizzes on the books to support children with their understanding of the texts. We can also monitor which children are accessing the texts and completing the assigned books. 

This is a really useful tool to help children to keep finding joy and pleasure in reading during these difficult times.

Some fun simple science that you could do at home with the whole family- check with an adult first before you start making a mess and raiding cupboards!
