Rise and shine guys, can you keep up with Sonic?
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.
Today we are practising using punctuation in sentences. Punctuation could be exclamation marks, question marks, full stops or capital letters. Please log on to www.spag.com you will need to email me to gain access to this if you haven’t already. There is an activity for you to complete on there. Remember I can check in and see how you get on as well.
This week we are going to read and watch a folktale that is set in another country. This story is from Ghana, a country in Africa.
Look on a map to see if you can find Africa and Ghana.
A folktale is a story from long ago. They were not written down but were told to people. This was how the stories were spread and became well known. These stories were told by people to pass on important information and lessons that could be learnt by children and anyone else listening to them. This folktale is about Anansi. He is a spider and a trickster!
What do you think a trickster is? Tell a grown up what kind of spider you think Anansi is.
Today I would like you to watch the story of Why Anansi has eight long legs. When you have watched it, I would then like you to read the story yourself. This is a fantastic chance to practise your super reading skills! You could always send me a video of you reading the story to me!
When you have done that, I would like you to put the sentences in order! My computer has muddled them up again!
I have attached some pictures which also tell the story but my computer has muddled these too! See if you can match the sentences to the correct picture.
If you cannot print the pictures you could tell a grown up which sentence goes with which picture.
A game to get our brains working this morning, you have to sort the animals by size: http://resources.hwb.wales.gov.uk/VTC/the_zoo/eng/Introduction/mainsession1.htm
Today we are going to be comparing lengths and heights. Today we are going to be using words like taller, shorter, tallest and shortest. Choose the worksheet for your group:
Remember to practise your times tables with Times Tables Rock Stars.
In our last Geography lesson you learnt about the outback. Australia is full of interesting places and impressive locations. Take a look at the power point about natural locations.
Which one impressed you the most?
I would like you to choose one of the natural locations to write a fact file or create a booklet about. Use the information on the power point to help you and you could even try to find out your own facts too!
