I hope you have had a lovely weekend, what did you get up to?
I have been so impressed by the super learning you have been completing. Remember to keep sending me your emails with pictures of your learning so you can feature in our slideshow!
Here's a reminder of the email address:
Also please email to let me know if you need the log in for TimesTable Rockstars, as this is good to use to practise the multiplication facts the children have been learning over the past couple of weeks.
Miss Sharpe's group - 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. You should also watch and join in with the spelling video to match the sound which you are learning today. You will need some paper and a pencil to write the words on.
It's really important to keep practising your sounds.
Here's the link:
This week you are going to read a new text. This is a non-fiction text about Harbours. Do you know what a harbour is?
This text will be needed for the whole week so hold onto it if you print it out.
First of all read the text through carefully. It is good to read it through again to familiarise yourself with where all the information is.
For your reading activity today you are going to practise skimming and scanning through the text to find the words on your worksheet. Do any of the words appear more than once?
Today you are going to learn about tally charts! Tally charts are a good way to keep track of how many of something you have! Today you have 2 learning videos to teach you all about tally charts! Watch the first one and join in to learn how to make a tally!
Do you understand tally charts now?
One of the most important things to remember is to strike through on the 5th one when you’re counting like this:
Watch your next learning video to see how to use and make tally charts!
When you get onto your challenge you could even use sweets! I had a go using some chocolate beans!
First I put the beans on a plate, then I wrote the colours on my chart and grouped the beans into the same colour groups. I then chose a colour and counted how many there were and recorded the tally and the total.
I’m looking forward to seeing your tally chart examples!
My cat was helping me plan your Maths learning for this week! I think he wishes I had used cat treats!
This week we are going to be looking at numbers to 50. We are going to start by looking at counting to 50 by making 10s.
In school we have practised making bundles of 10 straws and we have looked at sticks of 10.
Can you remember?
Today I would like you to watch the video carefully. At the end of the video, it asks you to practise making 5 groups of 10. Ask your grown up if there is anything in the house to do this with. You could use pencils, pasta, buttons anything at all.
If you do not have enough to make 5 bundles of 10 then see if you can make 3 groups of 10. When you have made the groups of 10, send me a photo. I would love to see them.
There is also a worksheet to complete.
Today we are going to look at special naming words.
Naming words are called nouns. Naming words tell us the names of things.
Watch this video on this link to learn about nouns: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/zpd8ng8
You can try the activity to highlight the common and proper nouns too.
Special naming words have capital letters.
Names of people are special naming words. Mrs Hill
Days of the week are also special naming words. Monday Tuesday
Special naming words are called proper nouns.
Do you know the days of the week? Here is a video of a days of the week song.
Today we are going to learn some more about contractions. Can you remember what a contraction is?
If something contracts it gets smaller.
Contractions are words that are smaller because:
· a letter or letters are missed out
· an apostrophe goes in place of the missing letter or letters.
Watch this video to find out more about contractions:
Here is a video showing you how two words go together to make a contraction:
Look at these examples:
I am sorry I’m sorry
I have lost my book. I’ve lost my book.
There are lots of contractions with not.
That is not right That isn’t right.
They have not arrived. They haven’t arrived.
The o of not is missed out.
Today I would like you to write the contractions with not and write sentences using contractions.
Remember your apostrophes where the missing letter or letters would be when you are writing the contractions.
What is a food chain? Have you got any ideas?
A food chain shows how each animal gets its food.
Here is an example of a food chain:
Grass is eaten by the grasshopper who is eaten by the mouse who is eaten by the owl.
Watch this clip to learn more about food chains: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx882hv/articles/z3c2xnb
You can try the quiz after you watch the video clip too!
Next, take a look at the power point to help you learn more about food chains!
As you work through the power point it will ask you to sort cards into a food chain, you can find the cards needed for this activity below.
Your main learning activity is to construct (make) a food chain using the cards provided on your worksheets.
