It is Friday already! One more day of super home learning then you have the weekend to relax!
Today you have reading, maths, writing and art learning!
Miss Sharpe's group - Just like yesterday I would like to join in with the live phonics lesson streaming on youtube at 9:30am (remember if you miss it - don't worry! It will be on the youtube channel for 24hrs)
You are learning set 3 sounds so make sure this is the one that you watch.
It's really important to keep practising your sounds.
Here's the link:
Miss Fawkes' group - today you will read an information text about Antarctica. It has been very cold this week, but not as cold as Antarctica.
Do you know anything about Antarctica?
What animals do you think might live there?
Carefully read the information text, then read and answer the questions. Remember to look back in the text to find the answer.
Wehn you email me about your learning perhaps you can include something new you learnt!
I found it interesting to find out that some parts of Antarctica hasn't had snow or rain for over 2 million years!
Today we are moving on to add equal groups. This skill helps us to find the total.
First we look at the equal groups and find out how many are in each group, then we add the amount from each group.
There are 4 equal groups of 2.
There are four 2s.
The addition number sentence would be:
2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 8
Watch the video below to help you learn how to add equal groups:
On your worksheet you will see a stem sentence to complete like the above example. Look at the picture carefully to see how many groups there are and how many are in each group, then fill in the missing parts.
Next you will see a grid.
To complete the grid you will need to look at the pictures to see how many groups there are and how many are in each group. Next you will draw a picture to show the groups (a circle with dots inside will show this well), then you need to say the sentence – you can tell a grown up or write ‘___ groups of ___’ and lastly you will write the addition number sentence like the example above.
For your challenge use some items from home or cut out the ‘counters’ and share them into equal groups and write the number sentences to go with them. There will be more than one way for both challenges! How many different ways can you find?
Example: 10 counters
2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 10
5 + 5 = 10
Today you are going to learn how to count in 10s. Watch the video below to practise counting in 10s.
Fill in the missing numbers and continue the patterns to show you have understood how to count in 10s.
Did you notice when we count in tens the tens digit increases by 1?
Today I would like you to retell the story of The Princess and the Pea in your own words. Use the pictures you ordered from yesterday to help you.
Remember you can use some fairy tale words like:
Once upon a time
A long time ago there lived
They lived happily ever after
When you write your story make sure to:
Start each sentence with a capital letter
Put a full stop at the end of a sentence
Use a conjunction to write longer sentences like and , because, but, when, so
Use some adjectives to describe the prince and the princess. I can’t wait to read your stories.
You could start with something like this:
Once upon time, there lived a handsome prince who was trying to find a beautiful princess to marry. He had searched all over the kingdom but could not find a real princess to marry. Many dishonest people tried to trick the prince into marrying them!
******There is some lined paper to print below if you have no lined paper at home.******
I would like you to write some more colourful sentences.
Remember to say your sentence.
Write your sentence.
Check your sentences.
Today we are going to look at abstract art. Abstract art uses lots of shapes and colours to make a picture.
Have a look at the pictures attached of artist Beatriz Milhazes. What shapes can you see? Can you see small shapes? Can you see big shapes? Can you see where the shapes overlap? What colours have been used?
Today you are going to make a picture that uses circle shapes. See if you can make some different shaped circles out of coloured paper at home. If you have no coloured paper, perhaps you could draw the shapes and then colour them in.
Try placing the circle shapes into a picture you like. You can keep moving the shapes around until you are happy with it. You can even cut some of the circles in half and you can overlap the shapes to make your abstract art more interesting.
When you are happy, then glue the shapes down or if you have drawn them, colour the shapes in.
Beatriz Milhazes uses the colour black to outline some of the shapes to make them stand out. Get a black pen or crayon and do the same to your picture.
I have attached a sheet to show you how to make your abstract art. Good luck!
When you have finished, take a photograph of it and send it to me. I would love to see your abstract art.
If you don't have the resources above to be able to create your abstract art you could follow the link below to sketch an owl instead.
