Imagine, Believe, Succeed

Monday 8th June 2020

Good Morning, 

I hope you have had a good weekend, despite the awful weather! I am ready to start a brand new week of home learning, I hope you are too! 

Please remember to email me some of your work so I can see how you are getting on, as I am missing you all lots and it would be great to hear from you. 

 

Also, just a reminder of our Zoom meeting that is happening on Thursday at 2pm, it would be great to see you there. I have spoken to Miss Brown and she has agreed on a joint Zoom with Dahl class too, so it will be a great opportunity to see your friends from both classes and have a catch up and perhaps play some games together!  I will be sending an email (before Thursday) containing the details of our Zoom meeting. 

 

Stay Safe, 

Miss Sharpe. 

Reciprocal Reading 

Today we are going to begin a new book. It is called ‘Nim’s Island’ and it is written by Wendy Orr. 

 

Your Task:

I would like you to look at the front cover and make a prediction for what you think the story will be about. Write your prediction sentences in the following format:

I think this story will be about …… because ……

 

(USE CLUES FROM THE TITLE AND THE PICTURE ON THE FRONT COVER). 

 

Once you have completed your written task, you may read the blurb, pages 1, 2 and 3 and then have a look at the map of the island.

Literacy 

Now we have begun reading our new book. This week, in literacy we are going to write a setting description of the island where Nim lives. We are going to begin by looking at the map from today’s reading and you are going to draw a picture (what you think it looks like) of the hut with the lookout palm and the beach, where Nim sees her friends - use what you have read as a clue. Then, collect adjectives to describe those particular parts of the island. Write words and phrases with interesting and powerful adjectives/expanded noun phrases to describe the two areas of the island. If you have a thesaurus at home, you could use it to find interesting vocabulary. Here is an online thesaurus: https://www.thesaurus.com/.

Maths 

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green: 

Today you will be learning to recognise and describe 3D shapes. Here is a video that will explain all you need to know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nLpD6bE4fE.Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers. 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 to describe movement and turns. Be sure to look at the direction the object/person is facing to start with. Attached is a PowerPoint to work through with an adult so that you understand the methods for working out the answers.

Blue 1:

Today you will be using ordinal numbers e.g. first and 3rd to describe positions. 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).

Spelling Common Exception Words

This week, I would like you to use the words you have been tested on for your common exception words quiz - this was part of last Friday’s spellings. Choose at least 6 words from the first column of spellings that you didn’t spell correctly and have a go at practising them using the pyramid method that we have used before.

 

Challenge: Use 3 of these words in sentences. Be sure they are being used in the correct context.
