I hope you are all well and that you enjoyed some of your weekend in the sunshine. It is now time to spend a brand new week completing our learning jobs at home with our families. I am sure you are all raring to go!!
I am going to set up a 'Zoom' meeting on Thursday 14th May at 12pm as I have had lots of emails from you and your parents saying how much you miss your friends. This is going to be an ideal place where we can all see each other and you can have the opportunity to chat with your friends and myself (Miss Sharpe). All you have to do is sign up for zoom (it is free).
If you would like your child to be part of this zoom call then please email me before Thursday and I shall send you an ID number for the meeting and a password. On Thursday, enter the ID and Password and then we should all be able to speak and see each other at the same time (you may need to have some earphones, depending if your device has a built in speaker or not).
PLEASE NOTE PARENTS: As this is our first one, there will not be any learning happening, it will be purely for the purpose of seeing friends and chatting together.
Today, we are going to rethink what we read last week in our story ‘The Legend of Captain Crow’s Teeth.’ In our story, Marty began telling his brothers the story of this legend. There was mention of a lighthouse in the story and how the pirates would lure/attract ships onto the rocks by putting out the lamp in the lighthouse. We are going to find out about lighthouses by reading a nonfiction text and answering the questions using the text.
Please read the sheet below ‘All About Lighthouses’ and then answer the questions below. Please remember, your answers need to be in full sentences and using your cursive handwriting and correct punctuation (capitals, full stops, finger spaces, commas, etc).
As part of our literacy today and tomorrow, we are going to be describing and writing a setting description of a lighthouse. Today, we are just going to focus on collecting words for our lighthouse description and tomorrow, we will use these words to write a setting description.
Below is a picture of the outside appearance of the lighthouse. There is also a picture of the inside of a lighthouse. Think of interesting words to describe the looks and feel of the lighthouse. If you can only think of boring adjectives to describe it, use a thesaurus to find your word and it will give you some more interesting and powerful words to replace it with (if you have one at home). There is a template sheet below for you to write your ideas on (if you have a printer) if not, just write some notes in a similar format to the template.
Red, Orange, Yellow and Green - Today you will be learning about AM (before midday - 12am to 12pm) and PM (after midday - 12pm to 12am). Here is a video that might help - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7y1Q3GqRb7E.Attached is a PowerPoint to help you begin your learning about AM and PM. Once you've gone through the Powerpoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).
Blue 2: Today you will be learning how to find a third.
Remember, ⅓ means split into three equal groups. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).
Blue 1: Today you will be returning to your learning of place value. The focus today is counting to 100. You must look carefully at the amount of tens and ones the number has to find the answer. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. Once you have worked through the PowerPoint, you must have a go at answering the questions independently (ask an adult for help if you get stuck).
Today in PSHE you will begin thinking about your body and the choices you make.
Work through the PowerPoint with an adult. When you get to the section labelled ‘We Think’, use the score sheet and record what you think.
After that, complete the ‘You Can Touch Me Here’ worksheet, and think carefully about what YOU are comfortable with. There is no right or wrong answer.
