Happy Monday guys, welcome back to our learning.
Let’s get our bodies moving with a good classic tune, I bet your grown ups will know this one! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbzcLzMPyIg
For today’s learning we have…
Remember to practise your sounds daily. RWI will be holding daily virtual lessons for children to practise their sounds:
Set 1 sounds at 9:30am
Set 2 sounds at 10:00am
Set 3 sounds at 10:30am
They have updated these lessons to include word time for set 1 speed sounds and spelling for set 2 and 3.
There is also “Storytime with Nick” three times a week (Mon, Wed & Fri at 2pm) and some poems that your child can learn and perform.
I have attached a correct the spelling worksheet for you. The word you need to correct is circled.
We have also got Picnic on Pluto for you to feed the two alien’s Obb and Bob. Obb eats nonsense words and Bob eats real words. Read each word carefully using your Fred talk and feed it to the right alien. https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/PicnicOnPluto.html
This week we are going to be looking at plurals. We add s to naming words (nouns) when we mean more than one.
one hat two hats
If a naming word ends in ch sh or x we add es.
one fox six foxes
Watch the video to help you then click on the document to practise your learning.
Here is a game to practise identifying plurals with s on the end. See how you do.
This morning we have a maths warm up to get our brains working, try to complete this independently.
Today we are going to be learning about capacity. Watch this video to understand what capacity is.
Now see if you can match the amounts of water to the right cup on the worksheet.
Remember to practise your times tables with Times Tables Rock Stars.
Your learning today is to name and order the days of the week. Watch this clip first about the days of the week and play the game below then try the worksheet I’ve attached below.
Before half term we found out lots about materials. Today we are going to complete an experiment to find out which materials are waterproof.
Tell a grown up what waterproof means.
I want you to watch this video. There is an experiment to test 3 materials: paper, kitchen foil and felt. Stop the video at 1.26 and make a prediction as to which one will be the most waterproof? Write down your prediction to see if you were right later. Remember a prediction is a sensible guess so it does not matter if your guess is wrong!
When you have made your prediction watch the rest of the video.
I would like you to try a waterproof experiment at home. You will need a grown up to help you.
You do not need a spider! You can use jars and place the different materials over the top of the jars and put an elastic band around the top to keep them still.
You are going to see which material would be a good umbrella for the gingerbread man. You will need these materials: cling film, foil, a plastic bag, a tissue and kitchen roll.
Don’t worry if you do not have all of these. Just use what you have to hand.
Try and pour the same amount of water on the top of each material to keep the test fair and see if the water goes into the jar.
I have attached a sheet for you to record your results. You could always take some photographs and send them to me.
If you cannot complete an experiment watch this video that shows you more about waterproof materials. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nd42ISTOJI
Now see if you can identify the waterproof clothes for the Gingerbread Man!
