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 pre-recorded the maths lesson using a PPT. It is a first for me, so there might be a few teething problems to start with. 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.
There is a short video to watch of our new class story, 'The Day the Crayons Came Home', followed by an activity to complete. Today, there is a short video to show you what Duncan decided to do to help each of his crayons. We are starting a new English topic, which is based on the story, 'Peter and the Wolf', which is a traditional tale. Each day there will be activities linked to the story.
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 Living Things and their Habitats. Our lesson today is to think about microhabitats. We are going to try to answer the question, 'Do all minibeasts like living in the same microhabitat?'. To answer this question, you are going to explore different microhabitats and take a survey of the minibeasts that you find there.
