It’s Wednesday so time for some yoga. Today’s story is Marv the Metal Detective.
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 Grammar Hammer. The children are used to seeing these in the classroom. It covers a variety of areas that we have been learning about on our SPaG mats.
For the rest of the week we are going to be taking one final look at Traction man.
You are going to write your very own Traction Man adventure. At the end of Traction Man is Here, Traction Man is relaxing with Scrubbing Brush after saving the day again by rescuing the spoons. But close by there is danger! Scissor Shark!
You are going to write about what happens when Traction Man comes across Scissor Shark!
Traction Man is written a little bit like a comic.
A comic tells the story through lots of pictures.
Sometimes the pictures will have some speech bubbles to tell the reader what the characters are saying.
Sometimes the pictures will have action words or sound words to give the reader a better picture of what is happening in the story.
Sometimes there will be captions for each picture which tell the story in sentences.
Today you are going to plan your Traction Man adventure. Use the planning chart to write down your ideas so you will remember them for tomorrow. You do not need to write in sentences on your plan. They are your notes – just important words or phrases (groups of words)
Your story must have a beginning, middle and end.
What is he doing?
Remember, you are going to be drawing pictures to tell your story so think carefully about what happens! Click on the document to plan your story.
This morning we have a maths warm up to get our brains working, try to complete this independently.
Now we have learnt about halving ( ½ ) today we are going to be learning about finding a quarter ( ¼ ) of a shape. Click on the powerpoint below and then complete the work for your group. Remember that ¼ is 1 part of 4 equal parts.
Remember to practise your times tables with Times Tables Rock Stars.
Today we are going to learn about the adding sign +
Today I want you to physically add amounts, you could use crayons, chocolate buttons, pennies, anything you have at home. For a maths question like 4 + 3 =. We need to read the number sentence by pointing to each part as you read it. Go through the number sentence and complete the action:
4 get 4 objects
+ “get ready to get some more”
3 get 3 more
= how many are there?
Count carefully and write your answer.
Last week we learnt about using primary colours to create pieces of art, today we are going to learn about a famous artist who liked to use lots of different colours. His name is Andy Warhol. Click on the powerpoint to learn more about him. He liked to choose a picture of an object or person and repeat this picture using different colours each time. Today I would like you to create a piece of art in the style of Andy Warhol. Click on the worksheet below to use some of the pre-made repeated pictures or you can create your own. I look forward to seeing these.
