tuesday 14th july

Hi 1/2Butler!
Here are your activities for today.

Fitness Workout - Keep yourself moving with one of the fitness activities. You can try Joe Wicks, Zumba, Go Noodle or iMoves. 
There are also lots of fun dance videos on YouTube if you want to try something different.

TT Rockstars/Numbots – Please spend some time practising your times tables on TT Rockstars. When you have practised in the GARAGE, you can then challenge yourself on the ARENA game. Some of the questions may appear as divides so be careful. Have a couple of rounds and see if you can beat your own score!

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics - Days of the Week
Click on the picture below to access a quiz where you focus on spelling the days of the week.


Maths - Number Bonds
Mental maths skills are really important as you move through school. You should know your number bonds to 10 and 20 off by heart. It is even better if you can recall these quickly without having to count on your fingers. Some of you can also apply your knowledge to help you work out number bonds to 100. I have included some different challenges so that you can choose which one you would like to have a go at.

This is a great game to develop quick recall of number bonds and other mental maths skills. Choose Make 10, Make 20, Make 100 (tens) or Make 100 to practise your number bonds. How many can you get right in 1 minute? Challenge yourself to beat your score! Click on the picture to follow the link to the game.


English - Reading Comprehension
Read the text carefully and have a go at answering the questions.

Questions
1. When was Jacques Cousteau born?
2. What is a shipwreck?
3. What 3 jobs did Sylvia Earle do?
4. What are 'hope spots'?
5. Read the section about Sylvia Earle. Which word is closest in meaning to keeping something safe?
6. Where was Robert Ballard born?
7. What was the name of the robot that could send live video from the ocean floor?


Music - Frank Sinatra
Today we are going to listen to a Frank Sinatra song called My Way. Click on the picture to follow the link to the video.

My Way (Remastered 2008) - YouTube

When listening to the music, we normally find a quiet place, close our eyes and spend a little bit of time just listening to the music.
This helps us to visualise in our mind and think about what we can see and how we feel when we listen to the music. I would like you to listen to the piece of music and then discuss the following questions
 - How does it make you feel?
 - Where do you think this piece of music would have been played?
 - What do you see in your mind when you listen to this piece of music?

Then you can draw a picture to show what you visualise when you listen to the music. You could even write some words around your picture to describe what you see and how you feel. Remember it is whatever you think - there is no right or wrong!

You could also try to questions below.

Monday 13th July

Spelling and Phonics - Suffixes
Today we are going to consolidate your understanding of suffixes. Remember that suffixes are added to the end of a word and can change the word meaning.
In class, we have looked at the suffixes -ly, -ful, -less, -ness and -ment.
For example, joy - joyful          dark - darkness          quick - quickly         home - homeless         excite - excitement
Can you think of your own words to add to the table below?

Maths - Place Value
In the final week, we are going to recap some important skills that will really help you next year when you move to your new classes. It is really important that you have a good understanding of place value because it supports you in all other areas of maths. Your challenge for today involves partitioning, ordering, comparing and representing numbers in different ways. I have included some different options so that you can choose which challenge you would like to have a go at.

English - Challenges
Challenge 1:
I have set you all a reading challenge on Reading Eggs. This will appear as soon as you log in. You have to complete this activity before you can continue working on your levels.

Home Learning Week 13

Have a look at some of our amazing work!

Friday 10th july

It's Fun Friday! This week is all about REFLECTIONS.

Lockdown Life
Obviously things have been very different lately due to school being closed. Now that we are approaching the end of the school year, it feels like a good opportunity to reflect on your time during lockdown. I know lots of you have been extremely busy with your home learning but I also know that lots of you have missed school and have missed seeing your friends. Taking a moment to reflect allows you to think about all the things you have enjoyed and the things that you have achieved and it also gives you chance to think about things that you've missed. Spending time reflecting is really good for helping you think about your feelings and how you can manage them.
You can think about the things that you enjoyed doing before lockdown. This can include school or home.
You can think about what you have done during lockdown.
You can also think about the things that you are looking forward to doing when lockdown is over and life is a little bit more normal.
I have included an example below from Mrs Brook. You can do a piece of writing or you can write a list of bullet points.

 

Reflective Art
Anish Kapoor is an artist who loves to work with reflective surfaces. One of his most famous is in Chicago and it is called Cloud Gate (or The Bean as a nickname.)
Click on the image to watch the 1 minute time lapse video to see how the reflections change and give each person a unique experience of the art.
Look at examples of his other work too.

  • What do you like about his work?
  • Is there anything you don't like?
  • Is there any other pieces of his work that you like? Why?
  • Discuss what you think with someone at home.


Reflective Photography
Have you ever noticed what happens to your reflection when you look into a spoon? 
Does your reflection change if you look into the other side?

Mrs Lewis loves taking photos in reflective surfaces. Here are some photographs that she has taken. Can you spot Mrs Lewis in photos?

Your challenge is to take a photo of yourself in a reflective surface. What happens to your reflection? Does it change shape? Is it upside-down? Is it a different colour? 

Water Reflections
Have you ever noticed what happens to an object when it is reflected in the water?
Have a look at the images below.

Reflection (physics) - Wikipedia 7 Tips For Capturing Amazing iPhone Puddle Reflection Photos Tips for Painting Water and Reflections

Have a go at drawing your own water reflection picture. There are some different ideas if you look on Google. 

Reflection 190722 Drawing by Jack G Brauer 50 Best penguins and polar bears 2 images | Penguins and polar ... Reflection and water color pencils | Water color pencils, Art ...


Something to reflect upon...

If you were to look into the water, what animal do you think you would see as your reflection? What characteristics does that animal have that reflects your personality? 
Is it an animal you would be proud to be?

Are you proud of yourself when you reflect upon:

  • your actions,
  • how you treat other people,
  • how much effort you put in at school,
  • how kind and caring you are,
  • how forgiving you are,
  • how willing to understand you are?

Spelling and Phonics Common Exception Words
I have made LOTS of mistakes in the sentences below! I didn't have time to check my work properly!
Read the sentences carefully and correct the spelling mistakes. These are Common Exception Words that we have practised during handwriting, phonics and English lessons.


English - Alphabetical Order
Sorting words into alphabetical order is a skill that children often find tricky. It is really helpful if children understand alphabetical order because this can help them when they are using a dictionary or a thesaurus. It saves them a lot of time if they can quickly flick to the correct letter in the dictionary and can then scan through the words rather than having to read every word. This is a tricky skill for young children though so don't worry if they find this a little bit challenging!
Click on the picture below to follow the link to BBC Bitesize.

Teaching The Alphabet To Young Children Who Haven't Seen The ... Read the information carefully to learn about alphabetical order and watch the video clip to help you. Then have a go at Activity 1 and 2. It might be helpful if you write the alphabet out so you can see the letters in front of you.
If you want a real challenge, you can have a go at Activity 3!


Maths - Length
Your challenge for today is to draw lines that measure certain lengths. You will need to use the ruler carefully to make sure that your lines are accurate.
Activity 1: Ask an adult to draw some lines for you to measure. Make sure that you use centimetres and make sure that you start measuring from 0.

Activity 2: Follow the instructions below to draw your own lines. Read the clues carefully so that you know what length to draw the lines.
 - Draw a line that is between 6cm and 10cm long.
 - Draw a line that is shorter than 11cm.
 - Draw a line that is longer than 14cm.
 - Draw a line that is between 9cm and 13cm long.
 - Draw a line that is 3cm shorter than 8cm.
 - Draw a line that is 5cm longer than 12cm.
 - Draw a line that is 2cm longer than 13cm.
 - Draw a line that is 6cm shorter than 11cm.
 - Draw a line that is between 14cm and 17cm long.

Reflection
If we were together in school, we would be completing transition activities and we would be celebrating how much fun we have had in 1/2Butler. I have uploaded a sheet below that allows you to think about some of your favourite memories from being in 1/2Butler. You can include your own headings and you can think about anything that you enjoyed, things that you want to celebrate, anything that you are proud of etc
You can present this in anyway that you would like. You can draw pictures and label your ideas for each heading if you would like.

English - Newspaper Report
Today you are going to continue writing your newspaper report about the crazy creature. Remember to use your plan and notes to help include lots of detail and description.
You have written the opening paragraph so now you need to add the further information. Use the questions below to help you.
- Further Information - What does the creature look like? Where did the creature go? What did the creature do? How are they going to capture the creature?
- Speech/Quote - Who has seen the creature? How did they react to seeing the crazy creature in Huddersfield?
You can also add your picture and your caption at the end of your report.

Maths - Length
Today you are going to continue to measure items in centimetres. Remember to measure carefully and always start the ruler at 0.
First, you are going to choose different items around your house and you are going to measure them in centimetres. See the table below.

Then you are going to order the items in a list from shortest to longest.
Eg. pencil = 7cm
      phone = 10cm
      book = 13cm
      bottle = 16cm
When you have ordered the items, you are then going to use the > and < symbols to compare the lengths. Choose different items that you have measured and use the >, < and = symbols to compare them. Eg. Pencil (7cm)   <   Phone (10cm)               Bottle (16cm)   >   Pencil (7cm)               Book (13cm)   >   Phone (10cm)   


Music - 20th Century     
Today we are going to listen to another Beatles song. Click on the picture below to follow a link to a Beatles song called Yesterday.

When listening to the music, we normally find a quiet place, close our eyes and spend a little bit of time just listening to the music.
This helps us to visualise in our mind and think about what we can see and how we feel when we listen to the music. I would like you to listen to the piece of music and then discuss the following questions
 - How does it make you feel?
 - Where do you think this piece of music would have been played?
 - What do you see in your mind when you listen to this piece of music?

Then you can draw a picture to show what you visualise when you listen to the music. You could even write some words around your picture to describe what you see and how you feel. Remember it is whatever you think - there is no right or wrong!

You could also have a go at the activity below.

 

Monday 6th July

Hi 1/2Butler,
I hope you are ready for another week of home learning activities.
Here are your challenges for today.

Fitness Workout - Keep yourself moving with one of the fitness activities. You can try Joe Wicks, Zumba, Go Noodle or iMoves. 
There are also lots of fun dance videos on YouTube if you want to try something different.

Reading Eggs - I have set you a challenge that will appear as soon as you login. You have to do this activity first before it will let you continue working on Reading Eggs. After the challenge, you can continue working through a couple of the levels on Reading Eggs. (See useful links below to access the link)

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics Have a go at the Scrabble Spelling sheet below.
How many air, ear and are words can you think of? You could play against another member of your family to see who can score the most points!

English - Newspaper Report
Last week you planned your own newspaper report about a crazy creature escaping from a zoo. You looked at the different features of a news report and you thought about your own interesting headline. Y
ou also designed your own crazy creature and thought about what chaos the creature would cause in Huddersfield. Your challenge for today is to begin writing your report. We are going to write the news report over 2 days so you don't have to rush to write it all in one go. I have included an example below that will help you to write the opening of your newspaper report. Remember to use your plan and notes from last week because you have all the information that you need on the plan!

Maths - Length
This week we are going to focus on measuring length in centimetres (cm). You can either use a ruler or a tape measure to help you do your measuring this week.
Always remember to line your ruler up carefully and make sure you start measuring from 0. Some of the items that you measure might not be exactly a full cm so we can round up or down to the closest whole centimetre. Your challenge for today also involves estimating. Estimating is when you make a rough guess or an educated guess.
See the table below for your activity today. Choose different objects around your house (you could even choose sticks or leaves form the garden) and estimate the length. When you have added your estimation to the table, you can then measure the object carefully. When you record the measurement you have to use cm so that we know the unit of measurement.


Topic - Seaside Safety
Everyone loves going to the seaside but it is really important that people know how to be safe on the beach and near the water. Lots of beaches have lifeguards on duty to help keep people safe in the water. Read through the PowerPoint below to find out about water safety.

 

Then you can design your own water safety poster to make people aware of how to stay safe on the beach and near the water. I have included some examples below.

Home Learning Week 12

Look at some of our fantastic work!

Friday 3rd July

It's Fun Friday! This week is all about THE FUNFAIR!

This is a traditional Victorian carousel. It was, and still is, a very popular attraction at more traditional fairs. Traditionally it was powered by a steam engine.
T
he carousel would go round and round, as the horse you were sitting on would go up and down using the mechanism of the pole it was attached to. 
Have you ever been on a carousel? Have you ever seen one at a funfair? 
Have a look at some of the designs of the horses in closer detail. 
CHALLENGE: Have a go at drawing your own horse for a carousel. What will you call the horse? How will you decorate the saddle?

 

What sort of food can we eat at the fairground?
CHALLENGE: Create your own fairground menu. Remember to include the prices so that the customers know how much the items cost. When you have completed your menu, invite your family to choose different items that they would like to buy and you can work out the total. Do you need to give them any change?
I have included an example menu below that Mrs Brook has created.

You could also have a go at making your own toffee apples over the weekend. You must have an adult with you at all times if you try to make them!
You will need:

 - 6 red apples
 - 300g golden caster sugar
 - 3tbsp of golden syrup
 - toppings (nuts, sprinkles, dried fruit)

 

So far we have thought more about traditional fairgrounds... but times change! The fairground has developed into the theme park, full of white knuckle rides and thrilling rollercoasters. Mrs Brook and Mrs Hirst thought about some new rides that might be in a theme park.  Mrs Brook is definitely a daredevil, whereas Mrs Hirst prefers something a little more gentle. CHALLENGE: Can you design a new ride for a theme park? Will your ride go super fast? Will the rollercoaster go upside down?
I have included the examples from Mrs Brook and Mrs Hirst. I can't wait to see what your rollercoaster looks like!

 

Before I go to the theme park, I always look at the park map to see which ride I am going to go on first. I like to go on the fast, scary rollercoasters before the queues get too  long! CHALLENGE: Design your own theme park map. I wonder what you will call your theme park. Will you have a water ride in your theme park? Will you have a shop so that people can buy gifts before they leave? Will you include an area with smaller rides for young children?
I have included an example map below but if you google some of your favourite theme parks then you will find the maps online, eg. Flamingo Land, Alton Towers, Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Flambards Theme Park interactive park map, in Helston, Cornwall

English - Newspaper Report
Today you are going to plan your newspaper report so that you have all the ideas and vocabulary that you will need. The news report is going to be about your crazy creature escaping from the zoo and causing chaos in Huddersfield. I have included some questions below that will help you map out the key details that you will need when we start writing next week.
 - What is your newspaper called?
 - What is the headline for your story? - short, catchy and interesting to attract the attention of the reader
 - Opening Paragraph - What has happened? 
Where did this happen? When did the creature escape? 
 - Further Information - What does the creature look like? Where did the creature go? What did the creature do? How are they going to capture the creature?
 - Speech/Quote - Who has seen the creature? How did they react to seeing the crazy creature in Huddersfield?
 - Draw a picture and add a caption ready to go alongside your report.

Topic - Geography Link
Your challenge for today is to explore the different seaside locations in The British Isles and then mark them on a map. A really good way to do this is by using Google Maps.
You can use the satellite view or the map view and it allows you to move up and down the coastline. You can also zoom out to get a rough idea of where the seaside town is in relation to the rest of the map. This may help you mark the different places on your map. You can either search for different seaside locations or you can move around the map and see which places you recognise. I have also included some links below incase you don't want to use Google Maps. Click on the pictures to access the links.


If you go to PLACES TO VISIT then you can access different regions and find different seaside locations.

This provides a list of different seaside places that you can then look up and mark on the map.

Use the England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales tabs at the top to navigate to different seaside locations.

CHALLENGE: Now try to mark some of the seaside locations on the map below. If you can't print the map, draw a rough outline and mark the seaside locations as best as you can.

English - Newspaper Report
Today we are going to look at a different newspaper report and we are going to answer some questions about the text. Before you read the report, have a look at the layout and presentation of the text. Does it include the name of the newspaper? What is the headline? Can you see any quotes or direct speech? What is the caption that goes alongside the picture? When you have read the newspaper report, you can have a go at answering the questions. You can discuss your answers with someone in your family if you don't want to write the answers down.

Questions:
1. What city would you find the Natural History Museum?
2. What year did the Diplodocus skeleton arrive at the museum?
3. Which country was the real Diplodocus skeleton found in?
4. How long did it take to put the skeleton together? Circle the correct answer.
    292 days          36 days          4 months

Today we are going to think about the different plants that we can eat. We are going to think about which part of the plant the food comes from. Have a look at the PowerPoint below and it will tell you all about root vegetables, stem vegetables and leaf vegetables.

Then use this information to complete the table below. You can either sort the fruit and vegetables that I have included or you can add some different ones of your own.
You can draw pictures or you can write the words. Sort the fruit and vegetables into the table to show which part of the plant we eat.

You will also need to apply your mental math strategies to help you solve some tricky problems and puzzles. I will add a couple of problems each day. You can either have a go at them all or choose which one you would rather do. The problems and puzzles will take a little bit of thinking about and you might not get the answer the first time but that is okay! It's all about having a go, using different strategies and applying your maths skills in different ways.

Can you put the 10 numbers into the boxes to make 2 digit numbers as close to the target as possible?

Your challenge for today is to read a newspaper report and highlight the different features. Read the example news report below and then use the checklist to highlight the different features. If you have a newspaper at home, you can sit with an adult and have a look through the paper at the layout and different headlines. Do you notice how the headlines are often short and catchy to grab the attention of the reader? You can also access lots of newspaper reports on the internet.

 

Music - 20th Century
Today we are going to listen to a very famous band called The Beatles. You could have a search on YouTube and you will find lots of different Beatles songs.
Click on the picture below to follow a link to a Beatles song called She Loves You.

When listening to the music, we normally find a quiet place, close our eyes and spend a little bit of time just listening to the music.

 - How does it make you feel?
 - Where do you think this piece of music would have been played?
 - What do you see in your mind when you listen to this piece of music?

Then you can draw a picture to show what you visualise when you listen to the music. You could even write some words around your picture to describe what you see and how you feel. Remember it is whatever you think - there is no right or wrong!

You could also have a go at the activity below.

Take your time to understand the pictogram. You might want to write down some totals so that you have the key information before you start answering the questions.

 

Music - 20th Century
Today we are going to listen to a very famous band called ABBA. Ask the adults in your family if they know any ABBA songs.
Click on the picture below to follow a link to an ABBA song called Super Trouper.

When listening to the music, we normally find a quiet place, close our eyes and spend a little bit of time just listening to the music.
This helps us to visualise in our mind and think about what we can see and how we feel when we listen to the music. I would like you to listen to the piece of music and then discuss the following questions
 - How does it make you feel?
 - Where do you think this piece of music would have been played?
 - What do you see in your mind when you listen to this piece of music?

Then you can draw a picture to show what you visualise when you listen to the music. You could even write some words around your picture to describe what you see and how you feel. Remember it is whatever you think - there is no right or wrong!

Or you can have a go at the activity below. You could look at some pictures of ABBA to find out about the clothes that they wore. You might be interested to see that the fashion was very different to the fashion that musicians/pop stars wear today.

Yesterday you listened to the story about the animals on the farm demanding things from Farmer Brown. Your challenge for today is to plan your own letter for Farmer Brown to tell him what the animals want. You need to think of different farm animals and plan what they would write in their letter to Farmer Brown. It can be as fun and silly as you want! Create 4 boxes and in each box draw the farm animal and the item that they are going to ask the farmer for. I have included some examples below to help you.
 - Pigs want a jacuzzi mud bath so they can have a long soak in the mud
 - Horse wants a hairdryer so she can dry her mane
 - Goats want a climbing frame for their pen so they can play
You only need to plan your letter today because we will start writing our letters tomorrow. Remember to think about the reasons why the animals want the items so that you can explain to Farmer Brown in your letter.

Maths - Statistics
Today we are going to use a tally chart to create a pictogram. First, you need to complete the tally chart below so that we have all the data that we need for our pictogram.

You are going to draw pictures of the fruit for the pictogram. We are going to say that 1 picture of a piece of fruit represents 2 votes.
For example, if 6 people had chosen orange then I would draw 3 oranges because each orange counts as 2 votes.
                    If 8 people has chosen banana then I would draw 4 bananas because each banana counts as 2 votes.

If there was an odd number of votes then I would draw half of the fruit to represent 1 vote.
For example, If 7 people chose orange then I would draw 3 oranges (each orange counts as 2 votes) and then I would draw half an orange. 
It would look like this.

If 9 people chose apple then I would draw 4 apples (each apple counts as 2 votes) and then I would draw half an apple. It would look like this.

Your challenge is to use the data in the tally chart to create a pictogram. Write the fruits down one side of the page and the total at the other side. You can then draw the fruits in between. Remember that 1 piece of fruit represents 2 votes!

Geography - 7 Continents
Sir David Attenborough is going to become your teacher for the afternoon! He has teamed up with BBC Bitesize to create online lessons for children during lockdown. I know that the children have enjoyed watching snippets of his shows at school so I thought they would enjoy a quick Geography lesson at home. The link isn't available until the morning so I haven't been able to watch it or create a link for you yet. 
I will log in first thing in the morning and will hopefully be able to add more details for you here! There are plans for another Attenborough lesson on Thursday so if the children enjoy it we can try that one too.

Maths - Statistics
This week we are going to look at tally charts and pictograms. You are going to interpret data to help you answer questions and you are going to have a go at drawing your own pictogram. Your challenge for today is to complete the questions below which are all about tally charts. When finding the total of tally charts, it is really helpful if you can count in 5s. Each line on a tally chart represents 1. When you get to 5, you draw a line across to make a group of 5. It looks like this  


What is the same about the data? eg. More than 10 people like vanilla in both classes.

What is different about the data? eg. 1 person chose mint in Class 1 but 2 more people chose mint in Class 2.

Click on the picture below to answer some questions about an online tally chart.

Topic - Seaside
Today you are going to explore the different features of the seaside and you are going to learn about the physical features and the human features.
Physical features are the natural features of the environment, eg. sea, cliffs, rockpools and sand.
Human features are man made and have been built by humans, eg. lighthouse, pier, shops and beach huts.
Have a look at the images in the PowerPoint and discuss the different features that you can see.
Are they physical or human? How is the seaside environment different to where we live in Huddersfield?
When you have finished the PowerPoint, create a table and sort features of the seaside to show whether they are physical or human. You can either write the features under the correct column or you could draw pictures to show which are physical and which are human.

Wednesday 10th June

Hi 1/2Butler!
Please find all of your activities below. 

Fitness Workout - Keep yourself moving with one of the fitness activities. You can try Joe Wicks, Zumba, Go Noodle or iMoves. 
There are also lots of fun dance videos on YouTube if you want to try something different.

TT Rockstars/Numbots – Please spend some time practising your times tables on TT Rockstars. When you have practised in the GARAGE, you can then challenge yourself on the ARENA game.

Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

English - Reading Comprehension
Read the text carefully and have a go at answering the questions. You can discuss the questions with an adult if you don't want to write the answers down.

Maths - Comparing Money
Today we are going to recap how to use the greater than, less than and equals symbol. These symbols look like this   >     <     =
I have included a picture below to remind you about the symbols. We said that the crocodile always eats the biggest number so his mouth is always open towards the big number. For example, 67 is greater than 41 so 67 > 41. The symbol shows that the mouth is open towards 67 to eat the big number.
                                  23 is less than 94 so 23 < 94. The symbol shows that the mouth is open towards 94 to eat the big number.

Have a go at the sheet below. You need to find the total of the coins first before you can use the symbols to compare the amounts.

I have also set a 2Do on Purple Mash where you can practise using the greater than, less than and equals symbols to prove whether statements are true or false.

Art - Recycled Materials Fish
Have a go at creating your own fish made out of recycled materials. You could use bottles, plastic bags, newspaper, old materials or any other crafty bits that you can find.
You could complete some research on different types of fish and choose which one you would like to do. If you wanted, you could create an underwater scene with different fish on. Have a look at some examples below. I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures!

Plural means there is more than one, eg. three babies, two puppies, five monkeys.
Use the information below to help you complete the table.

Maths - Money
You have practised recognising the value of different coins, finding change and making amounts in different ways.
Today I have got a problem for you to solve! This is quite a tricky problem so remember to use coins to help you or you can draw your own coins.
Don't worry if you don't find the answer straight away - this problem is all about trial and error. Don't give up!

Key Information
 - Alesha only uses SILVER coins - How many different silver coins do we have?
 - Remember to use your times table knowledge to help you - x10 and x5


English - Reading
Click on the image below to follow the link to the website. There are lots of different games available but for today I would like you to focus on reading and picking information out of the text. It is all about reading for meaning and recognising the key information in the text that you have read. Some of the texts are only short captions or headings but if you don't read them carefully then you can misunderstand what the whole text is about!
You can decide whether you play the hard versions or the easy versions.
The map is made up of different characters and activities but for today we are going to focus on URSULA and her 3 games. You will need to use the big yellow arrows to navigate around to find URSULA and the games. You need to click the DOWN arrow and then go RIGHT ONCE.


Music - Star Wars
The music for the series of Star Wars films was composed by John Williams. Here is the man himself conducting the orchestra!
Click on the picture to watch the YouTube video.

StarWars.com | The Official Star Wars Website

When listening to the music, we normally find a quiet place, close our eyes and spend a little bit of time just listening to the music.
This helps us to visualise in our mind and think about what we can see and how we feel when we listen to the music. I would like you to listen to the piece of music and then discuss the following questions
 - How does it make you feel?
 - Where do you think this piece of music would have been played?
 - What do you see in your mind when you listen to this piece of music?

Then you can draw a picture to show what you visualise when you listen to the music. You could even write some words around your picture to describe what you see and how you feel. Remember it is whatever you think - there is no right or wrong!

You can have a go at the questions too if you would like!

HOME LEARNING WORK - WEEK 8

Here is some of our fantastic home learning work!

Friday 5th June

It's Fun Friday! This week is all about space!
Have a look through the activities and see which ones you would like to have a go at.

This week two astronauts launched into space from America and docked with the International Space Station (or ISS). This is a huge satellite that orbits Earth where astronaut scientists do lots of work. Click on the picture to watch the video below for highlights of the launch. 

Budget of NASA - Wikipedia

Life on board the ISS is very different from down here on Earth.  The astronauts have to get used to a whole new way of living.  The video below shows us some of the ways the astronauts have to adapt. Do you think you would be able to live this way? Click on the picture to watch the video.

International Space Station - Wikipedia

This video made me think about what it would be like to actually experience this. I used the information in the video to help me write a diary entry as if I was one of the astronauts. You could have a go at doing this too! Have a look at the example below.

The astronauts on board the ISS are often there for up to 6 months - that's half a year! What would you miss about Earth?
The astronauts have to eat very funny food that comes in silver packets and is often eaten through a straw. They can't risk any particles of food getting into all that scientific equipment! If you were on board the ISS for 6 months, what food would you miss the most?
Draw your idea of the meal you'd love to eat the most when you got back to Earth.
Below are some ideas for space themed food snacks you could make.

For those of you that have a vivid imagination, you could invent your own alien and create a fact file to go with it. Have a look at the example below.
I can't wait to see what crazy creatures you create!

CHALLENGE: I have also set a 2Do on Purple Mash where you can design your own rocket.
You should have an alert at the top of the screen when you log in. I'm really looking forward to seeing some of your designs!


I have included a little song all about the solar system. Click on the picture below to watch the video. You can find out some interesting facts from listening to the song.

8 Solar System facts to wow students

When you have found out about the solar system, you can have a go at some solar system crafts. You can present this in any way that you wish.
You could draw a picture, make a poster, do a powerpoint or create a model. I have included some pictures below to give you some ideas but there are lots of different crafts for space activities on Google.

Kearson's Classroom: The Big Bad Wolf

Maths - Money
Today we are going to think about finding the change. Finding the change can be quite tricky but you can use a number line to help you.
Have a look at the examples below.

Miss Butler buys a book that costs 57p. She pays with a £1 coin. (I have given the shopkeeper too much money so he has to give me some money back! This is the change.)
Have a look at how I have used a number line to work out the change.


Mrs Lancelot buys a bag that costs 72p. She pays with a £1 coin.
Have a look at how I have used a number line to work out the change.

Your Turn:
Have a go at the questions below. Use the number line examples to help you.

  1. Mr Richardson buys a new pen that costs 46p. He pays with a £1 coin. How much change does he need?
  2. Mrs Walsh buys a drink that costs 85p. She pays with a £1 coin. How much change does she need?
  3. Miss Butler buys a packet of sweets that cost 54p. She pays with a £1 coin. How much change does she need?
  4. Mrs Lancelot buys a cupcake that costs 29p. She pays with a £1 coin. How much change does she need?
  5. Miss Bradnum buys a new book that costs 37p. She pays with a £1 coin. How much change does she need?

If you find it tricky to work out the change from £1, then you can play shops and work out the change from 20p by using your knowledge of number bonds.
Put a price on some of your favourite toys and imagine that someone has paid with a 20p coin. How much change will you need to give them?

RE - Rules/Making Good Choices
Today you are going to think about how you can make good choices and the importance of following rules.
Discuss the questions below with an adult that lives in your house.
1. What kind of rules do you have at home?
2. If you could change any of the rules in your house, which rule would you change?
3. If you could make a new rule for your house, what new rule would you make?
4. Do different people in your house have different rules to follow? eg. older siblings, younger sibling, parents 

Challenge:
Write down 5 rules that you have to follow a home. Write each one on a different piece of paper.
Put the rules in order of importance. Which rule do you think is the most important and why? Which rule do you think is the least important and why?
Ask your parents if they agree with you. You might all have a different opinion on which rule is the most important!
I have included an example below.



Wednesday 3rd June

Thank you for the lovely emails and photographs of all your hard work. I can see that you are all giving 100% to your home learning activities.
Here are some activities for today.

Fitness Workout - Keep yourself moving with one of the fitness activities. You can try Joe Wicks, Zumba, Go Noodle or iMoves. 
There are also lots of fun dance videos on YouTube if you want to try something different.

Reading Eggs - I have set you a challenge that will appear as soon as you login. You have to do this activity first before it will let you continue working on Reading Eggs. After the challenge, you can continue working through a couple of the levels on Reading Eggs. (See useful links below to access the link)

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics - Have a go at the Scrabble Spelling sheet below.
How many or, aw and au words can you think of? You could play against another member of your family to see who can score the most points!

Maths - Money
Challenge 1: Have a go at the questions below to practise counting in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s. If you have some coins at home then you can use them to help you.
This is good way to recap your times table knowledge by counting in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s.

Challenge 2: Now that you have explored number bonds to 10 and 20, it's time to use your place value knowledge to make different amounts with tens and ones values.
For example, 
Can you find 3 different ways to make 56p?
1. 50p + 5p + 1p = 56p
2. 10p + 10p + 10p + 10p + 10p + 2p + 2p + 2p = 56p
3. 20p + 20p + 10p + 5p + 1p = 56p
You need to focus on making the 10s first and then think about the 1s. Remember you can only use real coins - there is no such thing as a 30p coin!
You can either draw the coins, write the number sentences or use your coins at home to show the amounts.
Your Turn:
Can you find 3 different ways to make 37p?
Can you find 3 different ways to make 53p?
Can you find 3 different ways to make £78p?
Can you find 3 different ways to make £1.00?

EnglishLittle Red Riding Hood/The Wolf's Story
Yesterday you completed a plan to help you gather key information for your WANTED poster about the wolf. You included detail and description about his appearance, you thought about where he might be found and you decided on a reward for anyone that helps to capture him. You are now going to begin writing your WANTED poster. You have 2 days for this activity so you don't have to complete lots of writing all in one go. Take your time and use your plan. There is more chance of someone spotting the wolf if you have given them a clear, detailed description of what he looks like. I have included a non-negotiable below to help you with some key vocabulary and sentence openers.
Remember to add a drawing of the wolf so we all know what he looks like!


Topic - Under The Sea
This half term, we are going to be learning about life in the world's oceans. Flotsam by David Wiesner is a lovely picture book that includes great illustrations of different animals that live under the sea. I have included a video link below so that you can have a look at the book. You may want to watch it a couple of times or pause it to discuss the detail in each picture. There are lots of different animals to look at!

Flotsam: Wiesner, David: 9780618194575: Books - Amazon.ca

When you have watched the video you can discuss the questions below with someone at home.
 - What do you think is the story of the book?
 - Is there anything in particular that you liked about the book?
 - Is there anything that you didn't enjoy about the book?
 - What questions came into your mind when you looked at the pictures?
Then you can have a go at creating your own under the sea picture. You could have a go at drawing your favourite picture from the story or you could draw a picture of your favourite animal that lives under the sea. Have fun!

Maths - Money (Number Bonds)
Your challenge for today is all about using coins to make number bonds to 10p and 20p. You need to think carefully about the value of the coins. For example, you can't say
7p+3p=10p because there is no such thing as a 7p coin or a 3p coin. You could say 5p+2p++2p+1p=10p because we have 5p coins, 2p coins and 1p coins. 
You could also use what you know about your 2 times table and your 5 times table. How many 5p coins do you need to make 20p? How many 2p coins do you need to make 10p?
You can either write your answers as number sentences, eg. 5p+5p=10p or you could draw the coins to show what makes 10p and 20p.
I wonder how many different combinations of coins you will find! 

English Little Red Riding Hood/The Wolf's Story
At the end of the week, we are going to create a WANTED poster for the wolf from the story so today we need to plan our description and ideas. You can create a mind map or write a list to describe him. 
I have included some information below to help you think about key details to include in your planning.
 - Appearance - What does he look like? What colour are his eyes? How would you describe his teeth, claws or tail?
 - Other Information - Does he sprint through the forest? Does he creep from tree to tree? Does he howl loudly through the night? Does he come out during the day or night?
 - Crime - Why is he wanted? What has he done? Why are the police looking for him?
 - Last Known Whereabouts - Where was he seen last? Does he hang around with any friends or is he normally alone?
 - Reward - Is there a reward for anyone who helps to find him? How much money will you offer? Is there a phone number for people to ring if they see him?
                  Should people go near him if they spot him or should they stay away?

Music - Purple Mash
I have set a 2Do on Purple Mash that will allow you to create and record your own simple melodies. You can choose different sounds and instruments to explore making your own music. First, spend some time exploring the different sounds and have a think about how you want to sequence them to compose your own melody. The RED button at the top will record when you click on it and the instruments that you pick will appear in the circles at the bottom so you can see what you have chosen. When you have finished click the BLUE button to stop recording. The GREEN button will play your music back to you. If you slide the PURPLE bar along, you can speed your music up or slow it down when it is playing back. Have fun exploring and creating your own music! If you save them I will be able to listen to your musical masterpieces!

Maths - Money
This week we are going to focus money. Our first challenge is all about recognising different coins and counting them. It would be really helpful if you have some real coins/spare change to work with but don't worry if you don't because you can play the interactive games. Children always enjoy learning about money so feel free to play shops if that's what they enjoy doing. You can discuss which coins you can use to make amounts. You can see which items you can buy to make 10p and 20p which will help practise number bonds. You can work together to find out how much change you would need from 10p or 20p.
Challenge 1: Ordering coins. Click on the picture to visit the game.
Click ordering and then any 6 coins.

Challenge 2: Making amounts. Click on the picture to visit the game. 
When making amounts, children need to count the 10s value first and then add on the ones. When making 42p, they need to focus on making 40p and then add on the ones.
Click make the total and then pounds. You can choose whether you play the easy version or the hard version.

English - Little Red Riding Hood/The Wolf's Story
Your first challenge is to recall the story of Little Red Riding Hood. It helps if you can remember that story first before you try today's work!
Then you need to listen to the story below - The Wolf's Story by Toby Forward. Click on the picture to access the YouTube video.

After listening to the story, think about the questions below. You can write your answers down or discuss them with someone in your family.

  1. Would you like to sit with the wolf and hear more about his story? Yes/No? Give a reason for your answer.
  2. What 'odd jobs' did the wolf do for Grandma?
  3. How do you think the wolf felt when Little Red Riding Hood ignored him and wouldn't talk to him?
  4. Why were people laughing at the wolf when he was running into town?
  5.  Do you believe the wolf? Explain your answer.

Topic - Under The Sea/Seaside
Our new topic is all about the seaside and life in the world's oceans. First, I'd like you to think about your own experiences of going to the seaside or the beach. You might even have some photographs at home that you can look at together as a family. 
Don't worry if you haven't been to the seaside because you can complete some research about our seaside towns to find out about Blackpool, Scarborough, Whitby or Bridlington. Your challenge for today is to use your senses to create a mindmap about the seaside.
You need to think about the questions below:
1. What can you see at the beach or as you walk around the seaside town?      shops, boats, rockpools, sandcastles etc
2. What can you hear at the beach or as you walk around the seaside town?     seagulls, children playing, waves crashing etc
3. What can you smell at the beach or as you walk around the seaside town?    fish and chips, donuts, fresh sea air etc
4. What can you touch at the beach or as you walk around the seaside town?    soft sand, cold sea, slippery rocks etc
5. What can you taste at the beach or as you walk around the seaside town?     fish and chips, salt water from the sea, yummy candyfloss

You can either write SEASIDE in the middle of your page and write your ideas around the side or you could write the senses as headings and draw pictures to show your ideas.
You can present your ideas in any way that you like.

HOME LEARNING WORK - WEEK 7

Have a look at our amazing home learning work!

Friday 22nd May

It's Fun FridayThis week is all about babies.
Have a look through the activities and see which ones you would like to have a go at.

What were you like as a baby?
Have a look in your house and see if you can find a baby picture of you. Spend some time with an adult who knew you as a baby and find out about yourself.
What was your favourite toy? What was your first word? How much did you weigh when you were born? 
How old were you when you first started crawling? Are there any funny stories about you as a baby?
You could maybe even ring an auntie, uncle, grandma or grandad and ask them what they remember about you as a baby!
Some of you might have a scrap book or a memory book of when you were little that you can look through with an adult.

It's a Baby Boy: Baby Boy Memory Book (Baby Memory Books): Amazon ... Greeting Card It's A Girl With Baby On A Pink Dots Background ...

What was life like in the year you were born?
Research what it was like when you were born. Mrs Hirst, Mrs Brooke and Mrs Lewis all found out some information about what was going on when they were born.
I have included some questions below to get you started.
 - Who was our monarch?
 - Who was our Prime Minister?
 - What sorts of things did children play with?
 - Which bands/singers were popular in the year you were born?

Design a new toy for a baby
There are lots of different toys for babies which are all designed to appeal to young children. There are cuddly toys, rattles, musical toys and play mats.
When making toys for children, it's really important to think about making it safe for a child to play with. 
Think about the different materials you could use? How will you make your toy appeal to young children? What special feature will your toy have?
You could even create a poster to advertise your toy!

You have now designed your own superhero and you have planned the different parts of your own story. Now it is time to begin writing your story! I
 know you've all got great imaginations so I can't wait to see what brilliant ideas you have come up with. Remember to use your plan to help you organise your writing. Take it slow and talk about your ideas before writing them down. Try to include adjectives to add detail and description to your story. I have included a non-negotiable below with some ideas to help you if you get stuck. You have two days to write your story so you don't have to rush or write it all in one go.


Maths - Time
You now know how to tell the time to o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. 
Have a go at the online games by clicking on the pictures below.

Music - Robert Schumann - Traumerei
Tempo is the speed of the music.
Adagio means slow.
Allegro means quick.
Click on the picture to listen to the piece of music and decide which of the words best describes this piece of music.

When listening to the music, we normally find a quiet place, close our eyes and spend a little bit of time just listening to the music.
This helps us to visualise in our mind and think about what we can see and how we feel when we listen to the music. I would like you to listen to the piece of music and then discuss the following questions
 - How does it make you feel?
 - Where do you think this piece of music would have been played?
 - What do you see in your mind when you listen to this piece of music?

Then you can draw a picture to show what you visualise when you listen to the music. You could even write some words around your picture to describe what you see and how you feel. Remember it is whatever you think - there is no right or wrong!

You can use your clock to keep practising o'clock, half past and quarter past times during the day!


English - Superhero
Your challenge for today is to create your own story plan about the adventure that your superhero is going to have. Create a grid so that you have 6 boxes and then you can draw pictures to map out what will happen in your story. You can really use your imagination with this activity to create any story that you would like. I will write a few questions below to help you think about the key parts of your story.
- Where is the setting of your story? 
- What will be the problem that your superhero has to face?

Thursday 14th May

Good morning! Here are some activities for today.
I hope you are looking forward to Fun Friday tomorrow!

Fitness Workout - Keep yourself moving with one of the fitness activities. You can try Joe Wicks, Zumba, Go Noodle or iMoves. 
There are also lots of fun dance videos on YouTube if you want to try something different.

TT Rockstars/Numbots – Please spend some time practising your times tables on TT Rockstars. When you have practised in the GARAGE, you can then challenge yourself on the ARENA game. Some of the questions may appear as divides so be careful. Have a couple of rounds and see if you can beat your own score!

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics - ur, er and ir (Alternate Spellings)
Look at the table below. I have started to sort some words that have the ur sound. Can you think of any more words to add to the table?
Think carefully about which column your words belong in. Remember you can write the word out using the different spelling patterns to see which one looks right to you!

Maths - Quiz
Your challenge for today is to use your written methods to have a go at the quiz below. We have practised the written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division so see if you can remember what to do. We have also worked on finding fractions of amounts using jottings. 
If you get stuck, scroll back down this page and you will find the examples for each method. (Look for the first week of home learning Mon 23rd March)

English - BBC Bitesize (Punctuation and Grammar Blast)
Click on the image below to follow the link to the website. There are lots of different games available but for today I would like you to focus on SPELLING, CONTRACTIONS and HOMOPHONES. We will be looking at some of the other games on the map in the future. The games are a great way to practise some of the English punctuation and grammar skills that we have covered in class. It gives you chance to recap using apostrophes in contractions and practise more of those tricky homophones. You can decide whether you play the hard versions or the easy versions.
The map is made up of different characters and activities but for today we are going to focus on Steve and his 3 games. You will need to use the big yellow arrows to navigate around to find Steve and the games. You need to click the DOWN arrow and then go RIGHT TWICE.

 
Science - Which material is the best for a toy boat?
If you click on the picture of the boat it will take you to a YouTube video that will show you how to fold your own paper boat. It can be a bit fiddly at first! I had to keep pausing the video at different points to check that I had folded it correctly. It did work though! If you manage to make a paper boat you could then try to make one out of foil or card. Then you can carry out your own investigation! Which material is the best for a toy boat?
You could test them all first to check that they float. If they do, you could put a little lego character into each boat and leave them for a short time. If they are still floating when you go back, you could add another lego character to each boat. Keep adding lego characters to see which boat floats the longest.
The winning boat is the one that sinks last! You could even have a family competition to see who can make the best boat!

Look at the menus below from 1st, 2nd and 3rd class. Look at how the options are different for the different classes. You will also notice that the quality of food is different too. Read through the menus and see if there are any foods on there that you enjoy eating today. You will also find that there are some foods on the menus that you have never heard of! Can you google them to find out what they are?

CHALLENGE: Create your own menu for the passengers on board the Titanic. You could set a menu for the 1st, 2nd or 3rd class passengers.
You could even design your page to look like it is from Titanic!

Tuesday 12th May

Hi 1/2Butler,
Please find all of your activities below. You can do these in any order.

Fitness Workout - Keep yourself moving with one of the fitness activities. You can try Joe Wicks, Zumba, Go Noodle or iMoves. 
There are also lots of fun dance videos on YouTube if you want to try something different.

TT Rockstars/Numbots – Please spend some time practising your times tables on TT Rockstars. When you have practised in the GARAGE, you can then challenge yourself on the ARENA game. Some of the questions may appear as divides so be careful. Have a couple of rounds and see if you can beat your own score!

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics - Homophones
Remember that a homophone is a word that sounds the same but has a different spelling and a different meaning. For example, blue and blew
My favourite colour is blue.
I blew the candles out on my birthday cake.
Have a go at writing your own sentences using the homophones below.

saw / sore          new / knew          which / witch          great / grate 

Maths - Time   
It was lovely to see that so many of you had made your own clocks to help you practise telling the time! Time can be quite tricky but keep persevering and I'm sure you will soon be confident. Today we are going to look at half past.
On a clock there are 2 hands. On my clock below, the long minute is blue and the short hour hand is red.

When the long minute hand points to 6, it means it is half past.
The short hand tells you the hour. On this clock the short hand is pointing between 2 and 3. This means it is half past 2.
Note: The hour hand points half way between 2 and 3. It has gone past 2 so it is half past 2.

CHALLENGE: Complete the clocks below. Draw the hands on the clocks to show the time or write the time that the clock is showing.
You can use your clock to keep practising o'clock and half past times during the day!

English - Play Scripts
Yesterday you explored a play script version of a traditional tale and you discussed the layout and organisation. You looked at the different parts that the characters had and thought about the instructions that tell them how to speak or how to act. Your challenge for today is to have a go at creating your own play script!
We are going to do this over 2 days so you have got lots of time to think about your ideas. There are a couple of different choices for you to make.
 - The example below shows the beginning of Jack and the Beanstalk so you can continue to write the play script for this traditional tale
 - Yesterday you looked at Little Red Riding Hood or The Three Little Pigs so you could write one of those as your own play script
 - Some of you might want to write part of your favourite story out as a play script. Lots of you enjoy Harry Potter or Horrid Henry so you could use those characters in your         play script.
You don't have to write lots and lots. You could just write a couple of lines for each character in your play. I'd be really impressed if you could present your play script in the same way as the examples from yesterday. Write the character name down the side so that we can clearly see which character is speaking. If you want a real challenge you could even include stage instructions in brackets, eg. Jack (running along the path): I am taking the cow to market.
You don't have to do that for every sentence but it would be interesting to see how the character is speaking or what they are supposed to do on stage.
Use the examples from yesterday and the example below to help you.

Art - Titanic
Watch the video below for a step by step guide on how to draw the Titanic. You can pause the video at each stage so that you can take your time with your drawing.
When you have finished your drawing, try to write 3 facts about the Titanic underneath your picture. Try to use your neatest joined up handwriting and remember finger spaces. You could include facts about the different classes, the journey, the lifeboats or the disaster when it hit the iceberg.
Click the picture to watch the YouTube video.

Monday 11th May

Good morning 1/2Butler!
Have a look at the activities for today. Remember to break the learning down in to small chunks and take some breaks.

Fitness Workout - Keep yourself moving with one of the fitness activities. You can try Joe Wicks, Zumba, Go Noodle or iMoves. 
There are also lots of fun dance videos on YouTube if you want to try something different.

Reading Eggs - I have set you a challenge that will appear as soon as you login. You have to do this activity first before it will let you continue working on Reading Eggs. After the challenge, you can continue working through a couple of the levels on Reading Eggs. (See useful links below to access the link)

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics - Phonics Play
Google New Phonics Play and then log in. Username: march20          Password: home
Go to Resources and you will see lots of different games.


Select Tricky Trucks. Choose Phase 5 All HFW.

Select Cheeky Chimps. Choose ow.
Read the word and then drag it to the chimp with the same pronunciation.

Maths - Time
This week we are going to look at telling the time. Before we do that, I thought it would be helpful for you to have a go at making your own clock so that you have got one to practise with. I have included some pictures below to help you. It really doesn't have to be fancy! You could use a paper plate or cut out a circle from a cardboard box and draw the numbers on yourself. It might help you if you do the long minute hand in one colour and the short hour hand in another colour. This will help you to understand the difference between the two hands on the clock.

Today we are going to look at o'clock.
On a clock there are 2 hands. On my clock below, the long minute is blue and the short hour hand is red.

When the long minute hand points to 12, it means it is o'clock.
The short hand tells you the hour. On this clock the short hand is pointing to 2.
This means it is 2 o'clock.

 Have a look at the PowerPoint below to practise o'clock times.

CHALLENGE: Complete the clocks below. Draw the hands on the clocks to show the time or write the time that the clock is showing.
You can use your clock to keep practising o'clock times during the day!

English - Play Scripts
Today we are going to have a look at a play script. I have uploaded 2 examples of play scripts based on traditional tales that you should be familiar with.
Challenge: Look at the organisation of the play script. Notice how the parts are split up and different character names are written down the side. You will also see instructions that tell the characters how to speak or how to act. Choose which play script you would like to read and try to act it out. You can take on different roles or you could ask someone at home to share some of the parts with you. Try to change your voice and get into character. It might say that your character is whispering, laughing, running or shouting! There is no writing for the task today. If you wanted to, you could draw your own characters and make stick puppets to help you act out the script but today is all about understanding what a play script is and how it is used to tell a story.

Music - Niccolo Paganini - Caprice 24
Tempo is the speed of the music.
Adagio means slow.
Allegro means quick.
Click on the picture to listen to the piece of music and decide which of the words best describes this piece of music.

12 Niccolò Paganini Facts – Interesting Facts About Niccolò ...

When listening to the music, we normally find a quiet place, close our eyes and spend a little bit of time just listening to the music.
This helps us to visualise in our mind and think about what we can see and how we feel when we listen to the music. I would like you to listen to the piece of music and then discuss the following questions
 - How does it make you feel?
 - Where do you think this piece of music would have been played?
 - What do you see in your mind when you listen to this piece of music?

Then you can draw a picture to show what you visualise when you listen to the music. You could even write some words around your picture to describe what you see and how you feel. Remember it is whatever you think - there is no right or wrong!

 

HOME LEARNING WORK - WEEK 5

Here is some more of our amazing home learning work!

Fitness Workout - Keep yourself moving with one of the fitness activities. You can try Joe Wicks, Zumba, Go Noodle or iMoves. 
There are also lots of fun dance videos on YouTube if you want to try something different.

Reading Eggs - I have set you a challenge that will appear as soon as you login. You have to do this activity first before it will let you continue working on Reading Eggs. After the challenge, you can continue working through a couple of the levels on Reading Eggs. (See useful links below to access the link)

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics - or, aw and au (Alternate Spellings)
Look at the table below. I have started to sort some words that have the aw sound. Can you think of any more words to add to the table?
Think carefully about which column your words belong in. Remember you can write the word out using the different spelling patterns to see which one looks right to you!

Maths - Number Fact Families
We have looked at number fact families for addition and subtraction and now it is time to think about the relationship between multiplication and division. I know lots of you have been practising your times tables so I'm hoping you will quickly see the link between multiply and divide. The number families still use the same 3 numbers and you still have 4 number sentences. Each number family needs 2 multiplication sentences and 2 division sentences.
Look at the examples below to see how I have used the same 3 numbers to write 4 number sentences. 
Click on the first picture to access a fact family game.(Click on  and then choose 2 to 5 times tables)

Remember that the division sentences have to start with the biggest number!
When you have had a go at the game, see if you can use your skills to complete the questions below. I have given you three numbers in each box and you need to write the 4 number sentences. You need 2 multiplications and 2 divisions in each family.

English - Book Review
Your challenge for today is to create a book review. You could write a review about your favourite book or you could choose a book we have read together in class.
You could write about Rainbow Crow and his colourful feathers or you could review The Paper Bag Princess and the fierce dragon. In a review you need to think about your favourite part of the story and explain why you like the text. You also need to say if you would recommend the book to other people. Would they enjoy the book? Why?
You could also include a picture of your favourite character. I have uploaded 2 different book reviews so you can choose which one you would prefer to do.
I'm looking forward to seeing which are you favourite books!

Science - Materials
You have been exploring to find lots of different materials and objects. You have sorted items based on what they are made out of eg. wood, plastic, glass, metal or paper.
Your challenge for today is to think about the properties of the materials and decide if you can change the shape of different materials. I have included a short PowerPoint to explain how you can squash, bend, twist or stretch the different materials. After looking at the PowerPoint, have a go at the sheet below to see if you really can change the shape of materials. If you don't have the materials on the grid, you can create your own table and choose your own materials/objects to test.

Tuesday 5th May

Good morning! Have a quick look at the important information about an activity for later in the week. 

IMPORTANT: For those who would like to, I have included a recipe for scones that I will be suggesting as an activity for Thursday.

Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics -Contractions
I have set you a challenge on Purple Mash. Some of us found contractions quite tricky so I thought it would be good to have a quick recap.
Remember that contractions have an apostrophe to replace the missing letters.
For example, I'm = I am      haven't = have not      they're = they are      we've = we have      can't = can not

English - BBC Bitesize (Punctuation and Grammar Blast)
Click on the image below to follow the link to the website. There are lots of different games available but for today I would like you to focus on SENTENCES, PREFIXES/SUFFIXES and PUNCTUATION. We will be looking at some of the other games on the map in the future.
The games are a great way to practise some of the English punctuation and grammar skills that we have covered in class. It gives you chance to check that sentences make sense and there are no missing words and you can also practise some of the suffix spellings that we have looked at before. Be careful with the punctuation game and make sure you check for capital letters and full stops. 
You can decide whether you play the hard versions or the easy versions.
The map is made up of different characters and activities but for today we are going to focus on Ernie and his 3 games.

Maths - Number Fact Families
Yesterday, you practised completing number fact families where all 3 numbers were given. Your challenge for today is to work out a missing number before completing the number fact family. You are going to use your counting on skills to help you. Have a look at the example below to see how to complete the bar model so that you can write the 4 number sentences for the family.
Example 

You need to count up from the number at the bottom of the bar model to the big number at the top. This will tell you the missing number.
When you have found the missing number you can complete the additions and subtractions.
Now it is your turn to try the questions below. (If this is too tricky, you can go back and play the number family game from yesterday!)

Science - Floating and Sinking (Titanic link and Materials link)
Today you are going to investigate which objects float and which objects sink!
Your challenge is to collect different objects/materials to see if they will float or sink. Before you test the items you need to make a prediction. Do you think it will float or sink? You could test the items in the sink, in a bowl of water or in the bath. I hope you have lots of  fun with your investigation!
I'd love to see some pictures of you being a scientist!
Draw yourself a grid like the one below so that you can record your predictions and results.

Spelling and Phonics - Rhyming Challenging!
How many words can you find that rhyme with the red words?

Maths - Number Fact Families
Number fact families use the same 3 numbers to write addition and subtraction sentences. We can write different number sentences to see the relationship between addition and subtraction. Remember addition can be done in any order, eg. 5 + 2 = 7   and   2 + 5 =7. When subtracting, the big number has to come first.
Look at the examples below to see how I have used the same 3 numbers to write 4 number sentences. Each fact family always has 2 additions and 2 subtractions.
Click on the first picture to access a fact family game.(Click on + and - and then up to 20)

When you have had a go at the game, see if you can use your skills to complete the questions below. Remember you use the same 3 numbers to complete the sentences. Each family has 2 additions and 2 subtractions. The big number must come first when subtracting.


English
- Titanic Comprehension

Read the text carefully and have a go at the comprehension questions. Remember that the answers are in the text. 

RE - Today we are going to think about how Jesus taught the disciples to show forgiveness through prayers. 
The Lord's Prayer is a Christian prayer that Jesus taught the disciples when they asked him how to pray. In the prayer, Jesus teaches people to forgive others and to forgive ourselves when we make mistakes. Read the prayer below.

Thinking Question
Why is it important to forgive people?

Your challenge is to create a forgiveness heart. Think of all the things that you can do to show someone that you forgive them and write them on your heart.
For example, You could give them a hug or you could let them join in with your game.
Have a look at the example below to give you some ideas.

Maths - Quiz!
Your challenge for today is to use your written methods to have a go at the quiz below. We have practised the written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division so see if you can remember what to do. You can probably use your mental maths skills to do the first 6 questions in your head.
If you get stuck, scroll back down this page and you will find the examples for each method. (Look for the first week of home learning Mon 23rd March)

English - Writing a description of a sweet house
Your challenge for today is to write a detailed description of your sweet house. You have designed and drawn your house and you have gathered some adjectives to help you describe it. You don't have to write lots and lots but see how many different adjectives you can use. I have included a non-negotiable to help you with some ideas. I have also uploaded an example to help you get started. Suffix words are highlighted in red and adjectives are highlighted in green.

If you finish, just for fun, I have set a 2Do on Purple Mash where you can create your own house of sweets on there!

Science - Materials
We are starting to look at a new Science topic all about materials. Your challenge is to go on a material hunt and see how many different materials you can find. You could search inside the house or you could have a look outside in the garden. You will find lots of different objects that are made from different materials. Have a look and see if you can find things that are made from wood, plastic, metal, glass, paper, card or fabric. You could draw pictures, write a list of objects or you could sort the objects into groups depending on what material they are made from. Talk to your family about the materials that you have found. Are they rough or smooth? Are they hard or soft? Can you bend or twist the material?

 

Wednesday 29th April

Spelling and PhonicsHave a go at the Spelling Boggle sheet below.
How many oa or ow words can you make? You could play against another member of your family to see who can write the most words!

Maths - Finding three quarters
Today we are going to look at finding three quarters of an amount. You already know how to find one quarter so you just need to follow the same method but then count 3 parts instead of 1. The picture below shows 3/4 of different shapes. Three quarters means that we have 3 parts out of 4. You can see that there are 4 parts altogether in the whole. We have coloured in 3 of them so we have 3 out of 4 - three quarters.


Use the example below to help you answer the questions. Use the same jotting as before but you need to count 3 of the parts to find 3/4.

English - Planning adjectives
You have drawn and labelled your own sweet house. Tomorrow, we are going to write a detailed description about our houses so we need to plan lots of key words and adjectives to help us do our writing. Your challenge for today is to create a word bank of adjectives that you could use in your writing. You could even try to include some alliteration! eg. crispy, crunchy smarties     
Think about your favourite sweets. How would you describe them? eg.
  tasty, colourful, fizzy, sour

Titanic Science - Make an iceberg (This will need to be done over 2 sessions!)
The Titanic famously sank on the 14th April 1912 in the North Atlantic Ocean after colliding with an iceberg. This activity models how an iceberg sits in the ocean and explains one of the reasons why the iceberg that collided with Titanic wasn’t spotted until it was too late!

You will need:

Balloon (or sealable plastic bag (no holes!)

Water

Water filled container/tub/large bowl

Does this explain how the crew members and passengers thought the Titanic had just missed the iceberg when in fact the hull had been sliced open by the iceberg underneath the water?

Some of the questions may appear as divides so be careful. Have a couple of rounds and see if you can beat your own score!

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics - oa, ow, oe and o-e (Alternate Spellings)
Look at the table below. I have started to sort some words that have the oa sound. Can you think of any more words to add to the table?
Think carefully about which column your words belong in. Remember you can write the word out using the different spelling patterns to see which one looks right to you!

 Maths - Finding a third
You now know how to find a half and a quarter of shapes and amounts. Today, you are going to use a jotting to help you find a third of different amounts.
The pictures below explain what a third is and it shows that you need 3 equal parts.

You use the same jotting as before but this time you split your circle into 3 parts before you share out the dots. You could also use any equipment that you have at home to share into 3 equal parts, eg. sharing out counters, cubes or sweets. Have a look at the example below and then try the questions. 

English - Designing a sweet house
Your challenge for today is to design your own sweet house, similar to the one in the Hansel and Gretel story from yesterday. Draw a picture of your house and label the different sweets and chocolates that you would use to make your house. Try to make your house as sweet, sugary and delicious as possible! You could use ice cream, skittles, smarties, lollipops, cola bottles,strawberry laces or love hearts. Your design can be anything that you want! I have included some pictures to help give you some ideas.

RE - Jesus and the Disciples
Have a look at the following video clip that tells us about Jesus' life. Think about what kind of person Jesus was and why he was so important.
Click on the image below to watch the video.

Today we will focus on the 12 disciples. Have a look at the fact sheet below and think carefully about what kind of people they would have to be to work alongside Jesus.
Your challenge is to write down as many adjectives as you can to describe the disciples. You could draw a picture of them and write the adjectives around the side or you could just write a list. For example, would they be helpful or selfish? Would they be friendly or unkind?
  Would they be polite or rude?

Monday 27th April

Good morning! 
Thank you for working so hard at home. I can see that lots of you have made great improvements with your handwriting and I am very impressed with your understanding of fractions. I know lots of you are still working on your Titanic models and I can't wait to see them! 

Fitness Workout - Joe Wicks is still doing his daily workouts on YouTube if you would like to continue doing this.
If you would like to try something different, you can sign up to iMovement to gain free access to some resources that we use in school during PE lessons.
Parents just need to sign up with an email address and then you have access to lots of different videos with a variety of workouts. It's totally free!
Click on the picture below to go straight to the iMovement website.

Reading Eggs - I have set you a challenge that will appear as soon as you login. You have to do this activity first before it will let you continue working on Reading Eggs. After the challenge, you can continue working through a couple of the levels on Reading Eggs. (See useful links below to access the link)

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics - Suffixes
I have set you a challenge on Purple Mash. The alert should appear at the top when you log in.
A suffix is added to the end of a word and can change the word meaning. In class, we have looked at the suffixes -ly, -ful, -less, -ness and -ment.
For example, joy - joyful          dark - darkness          quick - quickly         home - homeless         excite - excitement

Maths - Finding a half and a quarter
You have practised using jottings to find fractions of amounts. Today we are going to recap finding a half and a quarter of amounts. You need to read the questions carefully to decide if you need 2 equal parts or 4 equal parts. Remember to share the dots out one by one into each part. You can scroll back down to the fraction examples from last week if you need a reminder. Have a go at the questions below! Remember to draw your jottings neatly so that you don't get confused when counting the dots.

English - Hansel and Gretel
This week we are going to focus on the story of Hansel and Gretel. Many of you might have heard this story before but if you haven't then don't worry because you can listen to the story below. Your task for today is to listen to the story and think about the characters and the setting. Discuss the story with your family and think about the questions below.
 - How would you describe the setting of the story?
 - How would the children feel when they were left alone in the woods?
 - What adjectives would you use to describe the stepmother?
 - How would you feel if you found a gingerbread house decorated with sweets and lollipops?

Then I would like you to practise retelling the story in your own words. You can draw pictures to help you or you can use the pictures from the story to help you sequence your ideas. I have also included a word mat to help you include some key words when retelling the story.

Music - This half term we are going to be looking at the Romantic period.
We will be listening to the following composers:

  • Niccolo Paganini
  • Robert Schumann
  • Clara Schumann

Today we will be listening to a piece of music from Niccolo Paganini called La Campanella.

We normally find a quiet place, close our eyes and spend a little bit of time just listening to the music.
This helps us to visualise in our mind and think about what we can see and how we feel when we listen to the music. I would like you to listen to the piece of music and then discuss the following questions
 - How does it make you feel?
 - Where do you think this piece of music would have been played?
 - What do you see in your mind when you listen to this piece of music?

Then you can draw a picture to show what you visualise when you listen to the music. Remember it is whatever you think - there is no right or wrong!
Extra Challenge! - What is the main instrument playing in this piece?
                          - Which family of instruments does it belong to?



HOME LEARNING WORK - WEEK 3

Check out our brilliant work!

Friday 24th April

We understand that some of you are feeling a little bit fed up and you are missing your friends from school. You have worked really really hard and we are all so proud of your efforts so we thought it would be nice to have a FUN FRIDAY! We have uploaded some different activities to the website today so that you can have a break from the normal home learning activities. For our first Fun Friday, we have found lots of different challenges for you to have a go at and they are all based around animals.
If you would still like to complete your time capsule letter then that is absolutely fine. If you have started working on a Titanic project then you can continue with that or you can go back to it after the weekend. It is totally up to you what you choose to do. We just want you to have fun and enjoy yourselves! 

Chester Zoo - Virtual Zoo Day (click the picture below to go straight to the Chester Zoo YouTube channel)

You can visit Facebook or YouTube to access the different live videos. You don't have to watch all of the videos, you can use the time table above to help you plan which ones you would like to watch. There are also some other videos on YouTube from previous Virtual Zoo Days so you can go back and have a look at some different animals if you wish.
Challenge - After finding out about the different animals at Chester Zoo, you can have a go at designing your own zoo.
What animals will you choose to have at your zoo? Think about the different habitats that the animals might need and create a map or a plan to show off your very own zoo.
You could draw a map or if you have toy animals at home you could use them to build your own zoo.

Animal Alliteration
Alliteration is the repetition of the same letter or sound at the beginning of words.

For example, The large, lazy lion loved laying in the sun.                Eleven excited elephants enjoyed their lunch.
Challenge - Think of different animals that you might see in the zoo and see if you can write some short, simple alliteration sentences. Don't forget to add some lovely pictures! You could even try and think of an animal for each letter of the alphabet. I have included some examples below to help you get started.

Animal Fact File
After watching the videos from Chester Zoo, you could create your own fact file to share some interesting information. You could make a fact file about your favourite animal or you could make a poster to show facts and information about a few different animals. You could try to include some 'Did you know...' questions like we did when we made our penguin fact files. If you have any non-fiction books at home you might be able to find some interesting animal facts that could help you. Have a look at the examples below to give you some ideas.

The Zoo Cafe
The visitors of your zoo might be hungry after exploring all day so you could create an animal themed snack for the cafe. There are lots of different animal snack ideas on the internet but I have included a few examples below. If you don't want to make the food you could design an animal fruit face (think about the fruit plates that we designed in Science).

You could cut the letters up and practise building the words. Remember that each month must start with a capital letter.

Maths - Finding a quarter of amounts
Yesterday you practised finding a quarter of different shapes and you now know that you need to have 4 equal parts. You are now going to use a jotting to help you find a quarter of different amounts. You can use the example below to help you see how to draw your jotting. You just need to split a circle in 4 equal parts and then share out the correct amount of dots. You could also use any equipment that you have at home to share into 4 equal parts, eg. sharing out counters, cubes or sweets.
Have a look at the example below and then try the questions.   

English - Writing a time capsule letter
Today we are going to carry on with our letter to the future children of Dalton School. I know lots of you have planned lots of detail and key words so remember to use your plan to guide you. I have added another part of an example letter for you to look at. Remember you can scroll back down to the examples from yesterday if you want to look at them again. Don't worry if your letter isn't really long! You only need to write a couple of super sentences for each picture on your plan.

Topic - Titanic Challenge!
Your challenge is to produce your own art project of the famous Titanic ship. You can have a go on your own or you can work together with your family and enjoy creating something together. You can use any materials that you can find around the house to build a model or you can draw your own picture of the ship. There's no rush to complete your masterpieces so take your time and enjoy being creative. I would love to see some pictures of your models and drawings so please send them when you have completed them. 
I can't wait to add your pictures to our website! Hamza has already had a go at making his own ship so check out his picture below.

WEDNESDAY 22ND APRIL

Good morning!
Thank you for your lovely emails yesterday. I really enjoyed seeing all of your super work!

Fitness Workout - Joe Wicks is still doing his daily workouts on YouTube if you would like to continue doing this.
If you would like to try something different, I have added a link to a couple of fun zumba workouts on YouTube.
In the first one you can dance along to 'I like to move it move it' from the film Madagascar. This follows on to another zumba workout to a song from Minions.

Reading Eggs - I have set you a challenge that will appear as soon as you login. You have to do this activity first before it will let you continue working on Reading Eggs. After the challenge, you can continue working through a couple of the levels on Reading Eggs. (See useful links below to access the link)

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics - Have a go at the Scrabble Spelling sheet below.
You could play against another member of your family to see who can score the most points!

Maths - Today we will focus on finding a quarter of different shapes. Click on the picture on the right to access a YouTube video all about recognising quarters of shapes.

 Your challenge for today is to have a go at finding a quarter of different shapes. Remember that you have to have four equal parts.
 - You could ask an adult to draw some shapes for you and then you could draw lines on to show a quarter
 - You could cut some shapes out and then fold them in to quarters
 - You could use some food to look at quarters - chop an apple in to 4 equal pieces or cut your sandwich in quarters

This picture shows some shapes where a quarter has been shaded.

 

This picture shows different ways of finding a quarter of a square. Can you find a different way of finding a quarter of a shape?

English - Writing a time capsule letter
We are now going to spend the rest of the week putting together our letter to the children of Dalton School who will be there in 20 years time in 2040.
We can use a real tin at school to put your letters in and the tin can be buried and really dug up in 20 years time. A child at Dalton School could actually read your letter in 20 years time! Photograph your letters and send them in or type them and email them to me so I can pass them on to Miss Bradnum who will actually bury your letters at school.
I suggest writing the letter over 3 days so that you can break it down into a couple of sentences a day rather than trying to write the whole letter in one day. At school, we also break the writing process down so that children can really slow themselves down and think carefully about spelling, punctuation and vocabulary. Remember to use your pictures and key words on your plan to help you.
I have included two different examples below that you can read to give you some ideas. I'm really looking forward to seeing some super letters at the end of the week!

Captain Tom Moore

You may have heard about Captain Tom on the news because he has done an amazing job of raising more than £27 million pounds for our NHS heroes.
He set himself a challenge of walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday and he has managed to achieve his goal. 
All of the money that he has raised will go towards helping the NHS look after doctors, nurses, patients and their families.
On 30th April, Captain Tom will celebrate his 100th birthday and lots of people have already sent him cards and well wishes to show him their support and help him enjoy his 100th birthday celebrations. I think it would be a lovely idea if we could also send him a special birthday message!
Your challenge for today is to design and make a birthday card for Captain Tom. You can create a special birthday card for him and you could write a lovely message inside.
I have included the address for those who would like to post their card. (Hopefully it will get there in time for his birthday!)
If you don't want to post your card then don't worry because you can send a picture of it to me and I will upload it to our website to show our support.
I have also included a YouTube link so that you can see a news report of Captain Tom completing his challenge. Click on the picture below to watch the video.

Tuesday 21st April

Hi 1/2Butler,
Please find all of your activities below. You can do these in any order.

Fitness Workout - Joe Wicks is still doing his daily workouts on YouTube if you would like to continue doing this.
If you would like to try something different, I have added a grid below that is full of different activities. 
Challenge your family! 
Can you do each activity for 30 seconds? Who can do the most in 30 seconds?


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TT Rockstars/Numbots – Please spend some time practising your times tables on TT Rockstars. When you have practised in the GARAGE, you can then challenge yourself on the ARENA game. Some of the questions may appear as divides so be careful. Have a couple of rounds and see if you can beat your own score!
Remember that it is really important to keep practising your times tables. You could challenge yourself to see how many you can get right in 1 minute.

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and PhonicsHave a go at the Spelling Boggle sheet below.
How many ew or ue words can you make? You could play against another member of your family to see who can write the most words!

Maths - Finding half of amounts
Yesterday you practised finding half of different shapes and you now know that you need to have 2 equal parts. You are now going to use a jotting to help you find half of different amounts. You can use the example below to help you see how to draw your jotting. You just need to split a circle in 2 equal parts and then share out the correct amount of dots. You could also use any equipment that you have at home to share into 2 equal parts, eg. sharing out counters, cubes or sweets. You might even know some of the halves off by heart!
Have a look at the example below and then try the questions.                                                                                   

            

English - Time Capsule Work (continuing from drawing the pictures yesterday)
Your challenge for today is to focus on adjectives. Adjectives are words that describe nouns (objects and things). 
For example, The small, fluffy kitten went to sleep. (Small and fluffy are adjectives that describe the kitten)
When we write our letters for the time capsules, we want to include interesting adjectives to help bring our work to life. We want to add detail and description to make our work exciting and interesting.
Task 1: Look at the pictures that you drew yesterday and write some adjectives that you could use to add detail and description.
For example, If you drew a picture of you playing outside then you could write adjectives such as bright, warm sun or old, mucky football
                     If you drew a picture of you reading your favourite book then you could write adjectives to describe the setting such as dark, gloomy forest
                     If you drew a picture of you helping with the cooking, then you could write adjectives to describe the food such as yummy, juicy fruit

Task 2: Think about feelings and emotions
Look at the feelings and emotions in the picture below. Do you know what all these feelings mean?
Your next activity is to label your pictures from yesterday with one of the emotion words to show how you were feeling at that time.
For example, If you were having lots of fun playing in the garden then you could choose happy or you might think of your own word such as joyful or cheerful
                     If you had tried really hard with a piece of home learning work then you could choose proud
Planning all of your ideas and details will make it easier when you start your writing. You will have lots of key words written down and you will be able to use your pictures and key words to explain what you want to write about. A detailed plan leads to a great piece of writing!

 

Topic - Titanic (Continuing from yesterday)
Continue to spend some time collecting facts and information about Titanic to help you create a poster, fact file or mind map.You can have another look at the video and fact sheet from yesterday. I have also uploaded a PowerPoint document that gives you some more interesting information. I'm really looking forward to seeing how you have presented all your new facts and information.

Monday 20th April

Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely Easter break.
Please find all of your activities below. You can do these in any order.
Remember to take breaks, enjoy the sunshine and have fun spending time with your family.

Write your name and then follow all the activities for each letter of your name. You could repeat this activity for the names of your friends or you could do the activities for any of the words below.       
Monday          April          School         Exercise         Fitness      
                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Reading Eggs - I have set you a challenge that will appear as soon as you login. You have to do this activity first before it will let you continue working on Reading Eggs. After the challenge, you can continue working through a couple of the levels on Reading Eggs. (See useful links below to access the link)

Reading - Please spend 10 minutes reading everyday. You can read one of your school books, a book from home, a library book or any of your favourite texts.
Please write a comment in the yellow reading record book.

Spelling and Phonics - I have set you all a homophones challenge on Purple Mash.
Remember that a homophone is a word that sounds the same but has a different spelling and a different meaning. For example, there, their and they're
I put my bag down over there.
I hope they're working hard.
Have you seen their new puppy?

Maths - We are going to start learning about fractions. Today we will focus on finding a half of different shapes.

 Your challenge for today is to have a go at finding a half of different shapes. Remember that you have to have two equal parts.
 - You could ask an adult to draw some shapes for you and then you could draw a line on to show a half
 - You could cut some shapes out and then fold them in half
 - You could use some food to look at halves - chop an apple in half or cut your sandwich in half

This picture shows some shapes where a half has been shaded.
This picture shows different ways of finding a half of a square. Can you find a different way of finding half of a shape?

English - Letter Writing (Time Capsule)
In the future, boys and girls at Dalton School will learn about the Year 2020 when all the schools had to shut and children had to stay at home.
Later this week, we are going to be writing a letter to the future children of Dalton School. 
The letter could go in a time capsule, not to be opened until 2040!
(You will all be 26 or 27 years old then!)

Your activity for today is to plan the things that you will write about later in the week. The planning process is REALLY important because it gives you time to think about your ideas and discuss your thoughts with others. Talking about your ideas is the best way to develop them and improve them before you move on to writing. You need a grid with 6 or more boxes. In each box you need to draw a picture of the things that you would like to write about in your letter. You can also include a key word as a reminder for when you do the writing later in the week.
Here are some ideas of what you could draw in the boxes:
 - How you first felt when school was going to be closed
 - What you did on the last day of school before it closed
 - Any fitness or exercise that you have enjoyed doing at home
 - A picture of the people you live with and any pets
 - The different kinds of school work that you enjoyed doing at home
 - Calling/video calling friends and family to keep in touch
 - What you did at Easter
 - Any days where you had lots of fun
 - What you hope to do when you get back to school or when you see your friends

There are lots of different examples/information of time capsules on the internet if you want to have a look!

Topic - Titanic
Our new topic is all about Titanic! Your first activity is an introduction to the topic and you are going to spend some time collecting some facts and information. 

You can present your information in any way that you like. You could do a mind map, a poster, a list of facts or you could discuss some of your new knowledge with a family member. I have included a link to a YouTube video - you just need to click on the picture below. This video goes VERY fast so you will need to watch it a couple of times or you can pause it and discuss the different points like we would in class. I have also uploaded a document that has lots of different facts about Titanic.

This activity will be continued tomorrow.
I will upload a PowerPoint document that will you give more information to add to your mind map/poster.

I can't wait to see some lovely, neat instructional texts!

Name

Music - Ludwig Van Beethoven - 5th Symphony in C Minor (Click on the picture to access the YouTube video link)

In class, we have been listening to different pieces of classical music. We normally find a quiet place, close our eyes and spend a little bit of time just listening to the music.
This helps us to visualise in our mind and think about what we can see and how we feel when we listen to the music. I would like you to listen to the piece of music and then discuss the following questions
 - How does it make you feel?
 - Where do you think this piece of music would have been played?
 - What do you see in your mind when you listen to this piece of music?

Then you can draw a picture to show what you visualise when you listen to the music. Remember it is whatever you think - there is no right or wrong!

Yesterday you planned your own version of the story. You chose your own characters and thought about the adventure that you were going to write about.
Over the next 2 days, your challenge is to turn those ideas into a diary entry. You are going to write about meeting your character and all of the fun, exciting things that you did together. Remember to use your pictures to help you map out the different parts of your diary entry. This English activity is for the next 2 days so that you have enough time to think carefully and produce a fantastic, descriptive diary entry.

Music - Frederic Chopin - Fantaisie Impromptu, Op.66 (click on the picture to access the YouTube video link)

In class, we have been listening to different pieces of classical music. We normally find a quiet place, close our eyes and spend a little bit of time just listening to the music.
This helps us to visualise in our mind and think about what we can see and how we feel when we listen to the music. I would like you to listen to the piece of music and then discuss the following questions
 - How does it make you feel?
 - Where do you think this piece of music would have been played?
 - What do you see in your mind when you listen to this piece of music?

Then you can draw a picture to show what you visualise when you listen to the music. Remember it is whatever you think - there is no right or wrong!

  - change the place that you go = you might go to the seaside, the jungle, the park, a forest or a palace
  - think about the things that you will see = you might see other animals, something magical or something scary
  - think about what you will do = you might have a picnic, play a game, have a dance or read a story 
  - think about how you will feel at the end of your adventure = you might be happy because you've made a new friend, tired because of                                                                            all the fun that you've had or upset because your new friend is leaving you
                                                           You will use these pictures and key words to help you start your writing tomorrow so think carefully about your story plan!

We were recently learning about poetry linked to Spring. We read different poems and brainstormed lots of different signs of Spring.
Your challenge for today is to create your own Spring poem. You could use your senses to help you start each line of your poem.

Poem Example

Spring is Here!

Today I saw the bright, blue sky again,

Today I smelt the grass from a freshly cut lawn,

Today I heard the birds cheerfully singing in the trees,

Today I felt the sun’s warm fingers on the back of my neck,

Today I saw a posse of bright, happy daffodils,

Today I felt joy in my heart,

Today I could play in my garden,

Today was a great day in Spring!


You can draw your own pictures to show the different signs of Spring that you have described.
