WELCOME TO CLASS 2

Good Morning! I hope you have all had a good weekend…you’ve made it to the end of term, well done! Two days to go, then you, and your parents can all enjoy a well-deserved break from home schooling.

Here is your learning for Monday 20th July and Tuesday 21st July.

I would like you to try and finish any pieces of work that you have not had the chance to finish…. If/when you have done that I would like you to work on your Well-being project:

This project will give you a chance to look back and reflect on your different experiences of lockdown; both good and bad. It is up to you how you present it- through drawing, writing, photos…maybe a poster or leaflet or a powerpoint/typed on a word document and should tell us

: what went well in home learning
: what didn't go so well, was difficult in home learning
: the happiest memory of Lockdown/summer holiday
: the saddest memory of Lockdown/summer holiday
: what subjects/activities you enjoyed most/least
: what you are looking forward to most in September

This should be completed ready for the first day back to school in September.

Jim Lad and I had such a fun swim in the sea, we walked the creaky plank and dived down into the rough waves. Jim Lad’s daddy threw us a rope and pulled us up the side of the tall creaky ship. It was exhilarating swinging through the air.

After a lunch of hard tack and fish, Jim and I played a game of ‘Pulling the sails down’ ….Jim was so fast, he beat me every time!! I felt so cross, but I soon cheered up when I remembered that he has lived on a pirate ship for his whole life and so he’d had lots of practice.

In the evening, Jim’s mummy lit a little fire and we snuggled in soft blankets on deck. Squarker the pirate made us all laugh by singing songs called sea shanties, in a loud croaky voice. Mummy told us pirate tales and we drank delicious hot chocolate. Finally, we sleepily climbed into our swinging hammocks…it was such a fun day. I cannot wait to arrive at Scurvy Sands tomorrow morning.

Approx. 60 minutes.

For example,

I would start my day at Scurvy Sands by tying up my majestic wooden ship against the narrow rickety pier. First of all, I will wander down the quiet pier until I get to the rundown shack at the end of it. I will buy some fiery Pirate Rum to sip slowly before heading to the rusty yellow pedlos for a trip in the briny sea. After my legs have been worn out from all the vigorous pedalling I will head towards the gigantic wooden roller coaster. I will have 3 spine tingling rides before I stumble off to get some well deserved lunch at Pirate Jake’s ‘Salty Sea dog’ food shack…..

D.T.

THIS LESSON WILL BE SPREAD OVER THE NEXT TWO WEEKS

 

Continuing from last week………………….We are looking at solving a problem in Design Technology this term. The hungry pirates are struggling with the basket that is being used to send their lunches across between two pirate ships.

 

Last week we looked at evaluating lunchboxes and I showed you 3 different designs of lunchbox to look at and see which one you thought was the best. I also said that you were able to look at your own different lunchboxes at home instead.

 

Over the next few weeks you will need to design and make a new lunch box to transport the pirates lunch safely from The Golden Mermaid, over the sea and to The Blue Dolphin.

 

 

In today’s lesson you will be deciding which types of materials are likely to be most suitable for designing your pirate’s lunchbox.

I would like you to find a range of recycled materials around your house/at school-such as wood, foil, plastic cartons, cardboard boxes and paper.

 

As you look at the different recycled materials,

 I would like you to think about the following questions to help you decide which ones you may want to use for the lunchbox that you will be designing and making over the next few weeks.

 

-Which materials do you think will be waterproof and why?

-Which materials do you think will be strong and why? How could they be made stronger?

-Which materials might make a strong handle? How could it be made stronger?

-What will help to keep the lunch safe?

 

 

 

You will be starting to think about the lunchbox design criteria (a list of things our product must do to be successful.)

Lunch Box Design Criteria

  1. It must have a strong handle.
  2. It must be waterproof.
  3. It needs to protect the food.
  4. It must be strong.
  5. It should be appealing to pirates.

 

You  have been given an example of a lunchbox design.  Can you decide which recycled materials you would like to use for your lunchbox...make a listcheck your spelling!

 

Draw a picture of 4 different ideas for potential lunchboxes using recycled material and then describe why you have chosen the materials you have next to each one. There is a sheet for you to print off and write on, or you can just draw the grid in your book instead.

Here is an example of a lunchbox design and description.

 

 

 

 

 

 

PE

It’s going to be scorching today! If you can, I would like you to have a splash in the paddling pool or have a water fight involving running around outside.

If you cannot do this and are going to play with a ball outside or have a run in the garden, you may like to do this earlier in the day before it gets very hot.

  This should take you approx.

 60 minutes.

THIS WORK IS FOR MONDAY AND TUESDAY'S LESSONS

Read aloud to ‘Noi was worried that his dad would be angry about having a whale in the bath’

 

In your book I would like you write down some adjectives to describe how Noi is feeling as his dad gets closer to the house.

 

I want you to think about whether Noi should tell his dad about the whale…write a sentence or two to tell me why/why not Noi should tell his dad. I want you to explain why you think that.

 

 Read  ‘Somehow, Noi kept his secret safe all evening.’ and look at the image of the two having their tea.

 

Discuss what conversations might they be having?  What might they be thinking? Can you role play with a partner-one of you being Noi and one being his father-what conversation might you have whilst eating your tea?  Now have a conversation about what you are both thinking not saying...how are the conversations different?

 

Read on to ‘He even managed to sneak some supper for his whale.

 

I would like you to think about whether Noi should tell his dad about the whale…discuss with an adult, or jot down some reasons for and against Noi telling his dad.

 

You are then going to write a short note to Noi, giving him some advice as to whether he should tell his daddy. I have written an example below.

When you have finished it, check with your checklist that you have included everything, and edit your work with purple pen to show your changes.

 

Remember

1.Think of at least 2 or 3 reasons why Noi should/shouldn’t tell his father.

2.Use language to persuade Noi-emotive words, such as ‘terrible fright’, ‘poor whale.’

3. Time conjunctions, such as firstly, secondly and finally.

4. Punctuation such as capital letters, full stops and exclamation marks

 

 Dear Noi,

I think you should tell your daddy that you have a whale in the bath,

The reason I think this is firstly, because your daddy might notice when he goes into the bathroom for a bath and it would give him a terrible fright!!!

 Secondly, the poor whale is going to begin to get too big soon and might find that it gets wedged in the bath and finally, the little whale’s mummy will be heartbroken without her and your daddy might be able to help release the whale back into the sea to find her.

Please think about what I said. Your daddy is a kind man, and he would not want you to worry. He would want to help you.

I would like you to read aloud from the beginning to where Noi is running towards the whale, stopping at ‘It was a little whale washed up on the sand’.

 

How do you think Noi felt as he realised what was there and as he got closer and closer to the whale.?

Write some words in your book to describe Noi’s emotions.

L.I. I can use powerful adjectives to describe Noi’s emotions. You might want to use a thesaurus to help you think of some powerful adjectives.

 

Create stepping stones with (paper or real) pebbles to depict the escalation in emotion from the first moment Noi spotted something to realising it was a whale to kneeling beside it. Read on to ‘I must be quick’. What is the emotion Noi is left with?

 Write those emotions onto your stepping stone and arrange them to show how he is feeling at various stages of his find.

Can you draw a picture of the beach scene and the whale arrange the stepping stones to show the trail of how Noi is feeling as he gets closer/sees the whale. .

English-  

Today I would like you to look at the picture of the morning after the storm. …

Write some words, phrases or sentence to describe what you see in this picture (please ignore the accidental shadow!)

How does it compare to your illustration of the night of the storm?

 

You could listen to the first part of Britten’s first ‘Sea Interlude, Dawn’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTd2aXLTA84  (at 0:00 in the clip)  

and watch this clip on ‘YouTube’ to help give you some inspiration. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6QiuDY7GGc

 

When you have written your ideas, can you do similar to your storm poem---can you organise your ideas…write each individual idea on a strip of paper. Then organise the strips to make a poem…read it aloud, do you want to change the order to make it sound even more powerful?

 

For example,

Calm and quiet

Sea lapping gently on to the shore

Stillness

Birds calling a new day 

 

Now can you practise performing your poetry with the two verses? The storm and the calm after the storm.  Maybe you could get someone to video you performing your work?

 

Approx 60 mins

 

AOW

Can you look at the bottom of the class pages area and you will find the icon for Act of Worship. If you click on the icon you will find some ideas for our daily Act of Worship. Why don’t you have a go at one of them? You may enjoy writing a prayer.

 

Guided Reading

Today I would like you to read some fiction. Ideally a book/short story that you have not read before. Write down how you think the story will end using at least three full sentences.  Then explain why you think this in at least 2 more sentences.

Approx 20-30 minutes.

 

Maths

Today in Maths we will be looking at ‘Counting in quarters.’  If you finish your work, can you try answering the challenge question below?

 

  1. Can you think of 3 different questions that you could ask a friend about counting in quarters. Can you get them to make a prediction about what the answer might be and can they explain their reasoning?

You may also like to continue to improve your fluency and speed on Times table Rockstars-can you challenge yourself to improve your speed?

RE: KQ: What stories do Jewish people remember and celebrate at Passover?

What food do you like to eat on special occasions? Do you have turkey at Christmas? Hot cross buns at Easter? Is Sunday always a roast dinner day?

Sarah and Aaron’s Bubbe has come round for tea and brought a special plate with her and some interesting food.

The plate is called a Seder plate and is used in Jewish families to celebrate Passover. Each of the foods that is put on the plate is a reminder of the story of Moses when he led the people out of Egypt.

These are:

Bitter herbs – These remind the them that the lives of the Israelites were full of bitter suffering

Parsley dipped in salt water – this reminds them that the Israelites cried tears

Roasted lamb shank and hard boiled egg – Reminders of the offerings made by the Jewish people in the temple

 

At the Passover meal, Matzos are eaten to remind them that the Israelites left in such a hurry that the bread did not have time to rise – this is unleavened bread (like pitta)

Wine is also served – or grape juice for younger children.

 

Draw out a plate with these food on it and annotate it to explain why they are there.

Create a pate for you to remind you of Easter or Christmas – which foods would you choose and why?

If you have time and want to, you could watch this video clip of a Jewish family preparing for Passover.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QF84Wx0dGTg

 

Comprehension

Can you look at the picture and answer the questions.

  1. Why are some of the men wearing different coloured shirts?
  2. Why are the men covered in dirt?
  3. What do you think the men in the background might be thinking?
  4. Why do some of the men have mouth guards in?
  5. Can you think of 2 other questions that could ask about the picture.

Approx 20-30 mins.

R.E.

Hello Class 2. I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and are all refreshed and ready for your next week of learning! Here is your learning for

Monday 15th June.

Spelling and handwriting

Today we are going to focus on our handwriting. I would like you to go to www.ictgames.com and go on to English. There is a game called ‘Sky writing.’ Can you choose a letter that you find tricky to write, tick on the button that says ‘cursive’ and the plane will then demonstrate how to write the letter. On a piece of piece/using a whiteboard can you then practise writing that letter in the way that you were shown-write it in large letters/small letters/rainbow letters/ in sand etc. When you have finished one letter, please choose a different letter to write.

Approx 20-30 mins

 

English

 

I would like you to read the line aloud

 One night, a great storm had raged around their house.’ 

 

Think about what you imagine in your mind when you read this.

 

On a whiteboard/in your book can you write down words for phrases that show you how great the storm is.

 

You could always look at this footage of storms to help add some ideas to your imagination. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kL_Pz0-V2UQc

 

After you have watched this, I would like you to listen to this piece of music

(listen from 12:00 minutes) This is Benjamin Britten’s storm interlude of the ‘Four Sea Interludes’ from his opera Peter Grime. Think about the mood and atmosphere: of the music-how does it make you feel?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTd2aXLTA84 [from 12:00 minutes].

 

Write down some more ideas for describing the storm in your book/on a whiteboard.

 

Now can you draw a storm using the phrase, pictures and music to give you inspiration. If you have some dark paper it may look great on there, or alternatively, maybe you could make a collage of the storm.

 

When you have made your piece of art, I would like you to annotate it using sentences that add detail and description-using powerful verbs, adjectives and adverbs.

 

 For example, The thunderous waves smashed heavily on the defenceless shore.

 

Can you find a piece of blue fabric at home-a pillow case/towel or even a jumper? Listen to the music again (from 12 minutes) and move to the music as though you are the great storm moving around Noi’s house.

 

Now can you organise your ideas…write each individual idea on a strip of paper. Then organise the strips to make a poem…read it aloud, do you want to change the order to make it sound even more powerful?

 

For example,

 

Raging, crashing waves

Howling wind rattling the wooden windows

Powerful sea charging up the beach

A deafening roar of waves like an express train..  .

 

Keep safe ready for tomorrow’s lesson….if you run out of time in today’s lesson, don’t worry…you can continue with it tomorrow.

 

Approx. 60 minutes.

 

 

 

 

 

AOW

Can you look at the bottom of the class pages area and you will find the icon for Act of Worship. If you click on the icon you will find some ideas for our daily Act of Worship. Why don’t you have a go at one of them? You may enjoy writing a prayer.

 

Guided Reading

Read a few pages of your book with an adult-choose either fiction and non-fiction. Write down what information you should find on the front and back covers of most books.  Use full sentences and sub-headings.

Approx 30 mins.

 

Maths

We will be recapping ‘Counting in halves’ today.

If you finish your work, can you try the challenge question?

  1. Can you create a number line showing halves, thirds and quarters for other pupils to use? See if you could email a picture of it for your friend and give them some questions to answer about the number line.

You may also like to continue to improve your fluency and speed on Times table Rockstars-can you challenge yourself to improve your speed?

Approx 60 mins.

Science

Our topic this term is Plants.

If possible, I would like  you to check on the seeds that you planted last week. If the seeds have started to sprout, can you measure them with a ruler? I will attach an example of a recording sheet that you may like to copy into your book.

 

First of all, I would like you to look at the powerpoint about ‘The lifecyle of plants.’ This will give information that would be useful when thinking about how plants grow and live.

There is a video as part of the powerpoint which tells you how we know that a plant is living. Here is the link again https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zyvs34j

There is also a PDF version of the powerpoint.

When you have finished the video can you pretend to be a sunflower and follow the lifecycle as it grows.

When you have done that, can you draw and describe the life cycle of a sunflower? You can print out the sheet shown below, or you could draw similar in your books, or better, you can present the information in any way you want to –describing each stage of the sunflower life cyle.

Hello Class 2,

It’s Fabulous Friday

For your task today, I would like you to look at the key words in the slide. If you cannot remember what some of them mean then please can you look them up in a dictionary and write down their definitions.

 

I would then like you to look at the different features of the seaside and label the key features of the seaside on the photograph. There is a word bank to help you, or you may choose to challenge yourself and complete the sheet with no word bank. Please make sure you do take care to spell the key words correctly though! Are there any other key features that you could include that haven’t been mentioned?

If you cannot print off the features of the seaside sheet, can you talk about the features you see with an adult, and could you then write a postcard from the seaside instead, imagining what sort of places you may have visited whilst you were there.

English

English today will be continued from yesterday’s session.

Firstly, I would like you to look at the illustration (picture) of Noi eating his breakfast and his father collecting his coat.

 What do you notice about  the illustration?

What do you like and dislike about what you see?

Does it remind you of anything in real life or stories? 

 Do you have any questions about it? If so, write them down in your book.

 Does anything puzzle you?

How does this picture add to or change what you thought before?

 

Now look at the picture underneath of Noi looking out of the window….you can find this in the PDF of the book.

Can you show your parents/siblings the expressions that may be on Noi and his father’s faces using your own face?

Why do you think Noi and his father feel like this?

 

Read this part of the story

 ‘Every day, Noi’s dad left early for a long day’s work on his fishing boat. He wouldn’t be home again till dark.’

How do you think this makes Noi feel? Can you explain why? Can you show this using drama? What might Noi say to his father?

How do you think Noi’s father feels having to leave Noi all day? Can you show how he might feel? What might they both be thinking?

 Can you draw a picture of Noi and a picture of his father and use a speech bubble to for each of them to show what they might say? Or you could draw a picture and then use inverted commas (speech marks) to write what they are thinking instead.

Can you then write a diary entry as though you are Noi describing his day?

Dear diary,

Today was another lonely day on the quiet island. Daddy left for work very early this morning, I was still eating my breakfast when he left. I did wave at the window, but sadly, he didn’t notice.

I spent the morning playing hide and seek with the cats. Spotty and Ginger are so good at hiding! Spotty hid inside my sandy bucket and Ginger sneaked into my messy bedroom and lay under my bed. The cats are  fun, but I do wish that daddy was here to play games with instead.

This afternoon there was a fierce wind whistling across the island and the waves were smashing against the sandy shore. I decided to go for a walk, but the sand was blown in my face and felt gritty in my mouth. Yuck! So I came home, and played with my Lego whilst waiting for daddy to arrive back from fishing.

It was dark outside and nearly my bedtime when he arrived home tired and hungry. He was too tired to play with Lego and instead fell asleep in the soft armchair.  Maybe he will spend some time with me tomorrow, I hate being by myself.

This will take approx. 60 minutes.

AoW

Can you look at the bottom of the class pages area and you will find the icon for Act of Worship. If you click on the icon you will find some ideas for our daily Act of Worship. Why don’t you have a go at one of them? You may enjoy writing a prayer.

Maths

Today we are going to compare and order fractions

If you finish your work, can you try the challenge question below.

  1. Can you come up with a rule for when the denominators are the same, as in the In Focus task (when denominators are the same, it is the numerator that is most important). What would the rule be when denominators are different? How we could test this rule out?

 

You may also like to continue to improve your fluency and speed on Times table Rockstars-can you challenge yourself to improve your speed? Maybe you can time yourself at the beginning and end of the week and see how you have improved.

Approx 60 mins.

 

D.T.

We are looking at solving a problem in Design Technology this term. The hungry pirates are struggling with the basket that is being used to send their lunches across between two pirate ships.

In today’s lesson you will be evaluating the positives and negatives of different lunch boxes.

 I am going to show you a picture of three different boxes for you to evaluate, but if you have got 3 different boxes at home, that would be even better as you would then be able to touch/open and close them, which would help you decide which is the best one for the job of holding lunch.

 You can read the powerpoint which may help you.

You do not need to print out the ‘Evaluating lunch boxes’ sheet, you could just write the answers in your book or on a piece of paper instead.

PE

Why don’t you get out in the garden-kick a ball in the garden play with a bat and ball.  Can you design your own game or could you make an obstacle course or go for a bike ride? If you can’t get into your garden/outside today then look at Joe Wicks/Les Mills/Go Noodle/Cosmic Yoga.

RE:  Think back to last week and the story of Moses and the burning bush and the plagues. Today’s Key question:

What helps Jews to remember and celebrate Moses?

is all about what happened after God sent those plagues down on the Egyptians.

Moses led the Israelites to the Red Sea. Pharaoh changed his mind after letting them go and sent his men to chase after them and bring them back. At the bank of the Red Sea, Moses parted the waters so that they could cross and then as they passed through the waters closed up behind them and the Egyptian soldiers were killed. – You could read about this in Exodus 14

Read Exodus 20: 1 – 17 – this is where Moses is given the Ten Commandments. These are very important to Jews. They have them written on a tiny scroll and placed inside a Mezuzah which they touch each time they enter their house.

What rules do you have in your life that are precious enough to want to remember them every day? Do you have rules at home? Do you have rules for the way that you live your life?

Write out your important rules for living on a piece of paper and then roll it up into a tiny scroll. Could you make a decorated cover for your rules – perhaps using a toilet roll tube.

Where would you put it in your house so that you could touch it whenever you enter.

There is a game called ‘Sky writing.’ Can you choose a letter that you find tricky to write, tick on the button that says ‘cursive’ and the plane will then demonstrate how to write the letter. On a piece of piece/using a whiteboard can you then practise writing that letter in the way that you were shown-write it in large letters/small letters/rainbow letters/ in sand etc. When you have finished one letter, please choose a different letter to write.

Approx 20-30 mins

Follow the link on ‘You Tube’ where I will read the first line of our new book. https://youtu.be/gwzKqeVCLMY

 If you do not have access to ‘You Tube’ please can you read the line

Noi lived with his dad and six cats by the sea.

Using chalk pastels, charcoal or drawing pencils I would like you to draw what you imagine to illustrate this sentence.

Think about the different characters in the scene.

When you have done that, I would like you to annotate your artwork (make notes around it) thinking about the weather, the type of beach, how the sea might be behaving-i.e. is it rough, or calmy or stormy?

When you have finished your piece of work, I would like you to now look at the illustration from the book (saved as a word file on this page) and compare it to the one that you have drawn.

Think about-the space between the father and son/how easy is to find all the cats/facial expressions of Noi and his father .

Does anything puzzle you about the picture? Do you have any questions about the book? Write down your answers in your English book.

Maths

Back in the Spring term we started our Fractions topic…children should now be familiar with the terms-halves, thirds and quarters, as well as numerators and denominator. They should also know how to write these terms.

Over the next week or two they will be recapping counting in halves, thirds and quarters, as well as learning how to find parts of a set and parts of a quantity. BBC Bitesize have some great videos about fractions if your child needs a reminder, as well as ictgames.

We will be recapping ‘Naming Fractions’ today.

If you finish your work, can you try the challenge question?

  1. Look at ‘Let's Learn 4’. Are you able to continue this diagram? What would fifths look like? Can you fold paper to make this? What about sixths? Can you find relationships between sixths and thirds and halves?

You may also like to continue to improve your fluency and speed on Times table Rockstars-can you challenge yourself to improve your speed?

Approx 60 mins.

Science

Our topic this term is Plants.

First of all, I would like you to look at the powerpoint about ‘Seeds and Bulbs.’ This will give you information that would be useful when thinking about how seeds and bulbs grow.

 Then if possible, I would like you to plant seeds in different environments and make predictions about what you think would happen to them. There is a sheet for you to print out and write on, or you could just draw the information in your book instead.

Do not worry if you cannot carry out this experiment today. Instead you may like to watch this video on BBC Bitesize  and make short notes about the conditions needed for plants to grow well. You could also draw and label a diagram to show what a plant needs to grow.

Approx. 1-1.5 hours.

Music

Our topic this term is ‘Besides the seaside.’  This lesson you will continue and finish the work that you started last week.

Firstly, can you listen to this song about the seaside.

RE:

KQ: What helps Jewish people remember and celebrate Moses?

If you can look at the You tube clip:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYD9UFoJi_8

Or look the story up in the Bible in the book of Exodus

Exodus 7 14-24 and Exodus 3.

Think about these questions:

1. What do you like about this part of the Moses story? What is special about it? 

2. Why did Moses take off his shoes? 

3. Why did Moses not want to go back to Egypt? Do you sometimes have to do things you don’t want to?

4. What helps you to feel brave and confident?

Aaron and Sarah like the story of Moses, Sarah likes the part about Moses as a baby, but Aaron likes the part where Moses leads the people to safety. He likes this story because he says it shows that Moses was not always confident, but he trusted in God and was able to lead the people with his guidance. He likes that Moses was afraid at times too.

Think about question 4. Can you make a burning bush picture / model? On the flames write the things that help you to feel brave and confident

Hello Class 2. I hope you have all had a relaxing half term and are all refreshed and ready for your next few weeks of learning. Here is your learning for

Approx 20-30 mins

 

English

Today I would like you to write a recount of your half term. Remember that you are in writing about something that has already happened, in the past tense. Remember that regular verbs in the past tense end in –ed, and in irregular verbs the actual verb changes.

For example,

I had an enjoyable half term. The weather was lovely so I went to the wonderful beach. The sparkling blue sea shimmered and I swam and rowed on my shiny red kayak. I also drank a cup of tea, that was made in my green striped beach hut. My children jumped and splashed in the waves. We ate fish and chips and looked out at the tranquil sea.

Today we are going to be looking at poetry for a final day. We are going to be looking at acrostic poems today.

The first letter of each line spells out the poem’s theme vertically – what’s this one about?

Springtime casts a spell of green

Paints flowers opening to the sun.

Rain falls softly, saying ‘wake’,

In a fresh world just begun.

New leaves and buds, birds and lambs,

Grow and burst, hatch and run.

 

Gigantic flames

Remember 1666

Every child knows

Ash floated everywhere

Thousands of homes destroyed

 

Flames all around

Inside the bakery

Red sky

Everything covered in soot

 

Over the city

From house to house

 

Lots of people escaped

On foot, by boat and carriage

Nearly every house

Demolished

On Pudding Lane Help! Help! But

Not many people died.

 

Can you have a go at writing your own acrostic poem?

This will take you approx. 60 minutes

 

 

 

 

Maths

 

Today we are going to work on a Maths investigation. Remember that you can show any working out in your Maths books.

 

 

Magic Plant
On Friday at 9 am, the magic plant was only 2 centimetres tall.


Every twenty four hours, it doubled its height.

 

How tall was it on Monday at 9 am?

 

Key questions for you to think about

How tall will the plant be on Saturday at 9am?

How tall will the plant be on Sunday at 9am

 

You might like to draw the plant to help you.

 

Extension

Can you work out the plant's height after 1 week?

Can you work out the plant’s height after 2 weeks?

What about 3 weeks and 4 weeks?

 

 

 

Remember that you only need to answer the questions in your maths book.

This week it is Mental Health Awareness Week, every day you need to choose a different activity to carry out.

 

Please choose one activity per day, some may take longer to complete.

Read a kindness story with an adult such as: - Have you filled a bucket today? - The Giving Tree - Horton Hears a Who - A huge bag of Worries - The Invisible Boy - 0rdinary Mary’s Extraordinary Deed

Ring a friend or family member. Better still, Facetime or Zoom so they can see you too. A friendly voice or face might be just what they need.

Write kind notes to individual members of your family and stick on post-its around the house to make them smile!

 Bubble prayers: The Bible says that we can throw all our worries to God because God cares for us. What are you worried about today? You might like to share with a grown up and then blow the bubbles. Imagine you are blowing the bubbles to God.

Set up a family kindness jar (for each act of kindness that anyone in the family does or observes, place a bean in the kindness jar. For each unkind word or act, take two beans out and place back. When the jar becomes full the family gets to do something special together!)

Show kindness to the animals e.g. the birds by making a bird feeder for the garden, taking a neighbours dog for a walk etc.

Write 1 or 2 words about how you are feeling. Draw a heart/star for yourself and write 3 kind words or messages to yourself. You might also like to draw one for a family member or friend.

Make some homemade cookies or a gift for a neighbour and leave outside their door.

 Write a letter or draw a picture for a friend or family member that you haven’t seen for a while.

Acknowledge your community helpers by writing a thank you card. What are you thankful for?

 Mould something you are grateful for out of play dough. Gratitude jar: Each day write or draw something that you are thankful for and put it into the jar. At the end of the week, open the jar with your household and read what you’ve all been thankful for together.

Good morning,

I hope that you all enjoyed the sunshine yesterday and have completed your mini-beast investigations– I am looking forward to seeing your projects.

Spelling and Handwriting: Please write each of the words that you were looking at yesterday morning into your book in sentences. Make sure that you use your best handwriting and underline the spelling word.

English: If you can go out into the garden, find something natural that you think is interesting perhaps a tree or a flower. You are going to take a different view of the natural object you have found.

Turn so your back is towards the object, bend over and look back through your legs at it – what words would you use to describe it from this angle? Write these words down, try to think of 5. Now make a small gap in your cupped hands and look at the object again. What words would you use to describe the object this time? Try to think of 5 more words, but not the same ones as you used before.

Make sure you think about all your senses as you look. Perhaps you could close your eyes and touch the object and think of words? Or close your eyes and smell it?

Choose 2 of the words you have thought of from each group and write them into a list – you will have created a poem! Write it out in your book.

AoW: Look at the AoW for 19th May in the AoW resources at the bottom of the class pages.

Reading: Make sure that you have read several pages from your current book. What do you like / not like about the book that you have chosen?

Maths:  We are continuing with multiplication using arrays today. Do you remember that yesterday we looked at the commutative nature of multiplication? – that means we looked at how multiplication sums can be written as 3x5 = or 5x3 = and the same answer would be reached.

We are continuing with our practice on multiplication using our 2, 5, 10 x tables. Hopefully you will be feeling confident with this. If you finish the workbook pages quickly, please login to Times Tables Rockstars and have a practice of these tables on there. the workbook pages are at the end of today's work.

The better you know your tables, the easier Maths becomes.

RE: KQ: What stories about Moses do Jewish people remember?

The story of Moses is a really important story for Jewish people.

Moses was a Prophet, he listened to God and talked to the people about what God said. The story of Moses is in the Jewish holy book (the Torah). You may like to watch this video about Moses to remind you:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eEHT6dCKbI

Even today we use the idea of Moses in his basket – when a baby is first born, they quite often sleep in a Moses basket – did you? Ask you parents to show you a picture of a Moses basket - maybe they still have your Moses basket from when you were a baby.

Draw a picture of a Moses basket in your book. Write around the outside of it all the things you already know about Moses. There is another very famous story about Moses and Pharaoh – do you know it? Can you remember and add the details around the image of the Moses basket?

If you want to watch a video about this story, try this one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzcYLCYItuc

Can you write a list of all the plagues next to the basket?

I hope that you all have a lovely half term holiday.

Good Morning,

Welcome to our last week of term 5. I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend and are raring to go!

Spelling and handwriting: (This should take about half an hour)

 Please make a word search using the spellings below and ask a family member to complete it for you. Make sure that you spell the words correctly. The pattern that they use is the j sound spelt with –dge or –ge at the end of the word.

Can you or your family think of any more that you could add?

English: (This should take about an hour)

At the bottom of today’s work is a document called woodland poems, which has four woodland themed poems in it. Please read all of the poems in the document and think about which one you like best.

Why do you like this poem?

What is it about the way that it is written that appeals to you?

Are there any words used in the poem that you particularly like?

Does it rhyme? Does it matter?

Are the lines short or long – does this make it better or worse for you?

What is your favourite line in the poem?

Copy out the poem you like best into your book in your best handwriting and answer the above questions.

AoW: Have a look at the AoW plans at the bottom of the class pages and have a time of reflection with your family or on your own.

Maths: (This should take about an hour)

Your maths today is all about the 2, 5 and 10x tables. You have been practicing these last week, so you should be feeling a little more confident with them now.

 

 

Let’s start by thinking about: 

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

Lucy says that the sum for this grid is 5x2=10

Sam says the sum is 2x5=10. Who is right?

Why?

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

In fact, both of the children are right and this is because multiplication is commutative – you can do it either way round and you will still get the same answer.

 

 

 

Try

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


                                               

3 x 5 =                        

 

 

 Can you draw the array for the question below?

  5  x  3  =

What about 3 x 2? How could you show this as an array? Can you show this in a different way?

Your worksheets are all about multiplying with arrays. Enjoy!!

Mental Health awareness activity: Please choose an activity from the grid at the bottom of the page.

Science: We are continuing with the activity that we started last week. I have added the instructions gain for anyone who is unsure what to do.

We have looked at what some different minibeasts like to eat and where they like to live. We have all made a wormery and I hope you saw the worm trails and the way that worms moved around the container. I know some people looked at the way that ants make their homes – you only have to lift a plant pot out in the garden and you will find some ants living there, maybe a whole colony. We have looked at butterflies and what they like. I wonder if anyone found a chrysalis and is waiting for it to hatch?

Today it is your turn to choose your favourite minibeast and find out about

M How does it move?

R How many babies does it have and when?

S What kinds of things is it sensitive to?

G How big does it grow?

N What it likes to eat?

These questions are based around our MRS GREN letters – can you remember what they meant?

You can present your information how you would like – make a book? A poster? A model with labels it is up to you. This is your work for the next two weeks.

Please do take a photo of it and send it to me for the class gallery. There are so many lovely pictures on there.

Hello Class 2,

It’s Fabulous Friday

Here are the activities for Friday 15st May

fancy    face   

space    bicycle 

circle     spicy

 

Today can you get someone to test you on your spellings? It doesn’t matter if you got any wrong…just keep practising them and writing them out in your neatest writing.

This should take you approx. 20-30 minutes.

 

Grammar

Today I would like you to come up with an A-Z of adjectives (describing words) in your English book please. For example, Amazing, Beautiful, Cunning…

You may want to use a thesaurus to make your adjectives even more exciting.

Maybe you can use some of them in your writing over the next few days?

 

English

 

Today we will be finishing writing and editing your story.

Have a read of it, look at your success criteria and see if there is anything that you have not included. If you are missing anything then see where you can add it.

 

Success Criteria to help when you are writing your story-

  1. Remember to decide if you are going to write in the first person (I ) or third person (they/he/she/it.)
  2.  Can you add any descriptive language such as adjectives (for e.g. magical), powerful verbs (for e.g. shimmered) and adverbs (For e.g. brightly) to make your piece of writing even more interesting?
  3. If you are writing direct speech, don’t forget to put your speech marks around exactly what is being said. “ “
  4.  Finally, don’t forget your capital letters and full stops. Sharp pencils please and neat handwriting.
  5. Also please remember question marks (?) and exclamation marks (!)

Can you use a thesaurus to help you improve your adjectives and verbs? Can you check your spellings with a dictionary.

Show and tell

Have you made anything that you are proud of this week, or maybe you have had some great fun playing with your family? We would love to hear about it…maybe you could email us and let us know, or why don’t you ring up or video call a member of your family and share your news with them?

 

Choosing Time

Now is the time to enjoy playing after a busy week. Maybe you could choose an activity that you haven’t played for a while? Could you do a puzzle, play a board game, make something out of junk modelling? Maybe you could get out some trains or cars or some Happyland and design a new road/track or town layout? Whatever you choose to do, please enjoy it. You have all worked hard this week. Well done!

Can you now use your story map to begin to write the first part of your story in your English books.  I would like you to write the first 1-2 paragraphs and then stop. We will continue on Thursday.

 Read through your story so far, does it match your ideas in your story map? Do you need to add anything else in to make it clearer, or more interesting to read? If so, add it in now. Use a purple pen if you have one.

Success Criteria to help when you are writing your story-

  1. Remember to decide if you are going to write in the first person (I ) or third person (they/he/she/it.)
  2.  Can you add any descriptive language such as adjectives (for e.g. magical), powerful verbs (for e.g. shimmered) and adverbs (For e.g. brightly) to make your piece of writing even more interesting?
  3. If you are writing direct speech, don’t forget to put your speech marks around exactly what is being said. “ “
  4.  Finally, don’t forget your capital letters and full stops. Sharp pencils please and neat handwriting.
  5. Also please remember question marks (?) and exclamation marks (!)

 

This will take approx. 60 minutes.

AoW

Can you look at the bottom of the class pages area and you will find the icon for Act of Worship. If you click on the icon you will find some ideas for our daily Act of Worship. Why don’t you have a go at one of them? You may enjoy writing a prayer.

Maths

We are going to be looking at the 2, 5 and 10 x tables today. We briefly looked at these in the Autumn term, but it will be useful for you to look at these again. We are looking at Chapter 3. Lesson 5… 5 Times-tables.

If you have time you could also use Timestables Rockstars to practise your tables, or ICT games and choose from a range of different activities, such as number bonds.

This should take approx. 60 minutes.
