Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we will be tuning into Joe Wicks' workout sessions at 9am. They are short 20 minute workouts that are a great way to start the learning day and wake your bodies and brains up. Don't worry if you miss a session at 9am, you can always join in online at anytime, as the sessions can all be found on his YouTube channel. These will be in addition to our Tuesday morning PE lessons.
For each maths lesson, there will be a video to watch first with an online activity to complete. Today, I have provided a link to the White Rose Hub site, please watch and respond to the 'Select Money' video before completing the worksheet. There will also be additional activities below the video link to work through as well. The activities are labelled as, 'Bronze, Silver and Gold' as they get more challenging at each level. Your child only needs to complete one activity level, although they might like to try a more challenging level as well. Please focus on the quality of your child's work, and ensure that they have set their work out neatly and fully answered each question. You can print the sheets out, if you like, but this is not necessary, as your child can work from the screen onto paper.
We are starting a new English topic, which is based around owls. Today you are going to do some research to find out some information about one type of owl. You will need to draw the owl using careful observations, label it and then write some sentences about the owl based on your research. There is a link to a website that you might find useful.
Regularly, there will be a phonics video to watch with an activity to complete, we are revising many of the phonemes that your child will already be familiar with and looking at alternative spellings. There will be different activities depending on the spelling/phonics group that your child is in, this is the same as their spelling homework group.
Each day, I will be adding some reading resources to the class webpage, choose the level of text that is appropriate for your child from the Gold, Silver and Bronze options. The text shouldn't take very long to read, but your child might need to read and then reread the text before answering the related questions. The answer sheets are for an adult to check the answers if your child is working independently. Please keep encouraging your child to read as often and as widely as possible in addition to the tasks set online.
In science this term, we are learning about Plants. Our lesson today is to find out about how seeds are made within a plant and how they are spread. There are two short videos to watch and then an activity to complete. You could have a look at some fruit and vegetables, or flowers in your garden and see if you can spot the seeds.
