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.
We are starting a new English topic, which is based on the story, 'The Giants of Frog Hill', which is a fairy 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.
Our topic this half-term is Homes From the Past, we will be learning about different types of homes and comparing their features. Our learning will have a particular focus on Victorian houses. The information for each of these lessons will be presented as slides with worksheets to complete. Please choose the worksheet level that you feel is appropriate for your child from the Gold, Silver and Bronze options. Your child does not need to complete all of the work sheets. For today's lesson, you will need to spot the differences between a room in a modern house and a room in a Victorian house. Circle each difference that you can find, or if you don't have a printer, make a list of all of the things in each room that are different.
