Week 2 30.03 - 03.04

English

This week Team, we are going back to look at one of my favourite genres - TRADITIONAL TALES. How many traditional tales can you name... Three Little Pigs, Red Riding Hood... We are going to base our traditional tales on the Three Billy Goats Gruff! By the end of the week you will write your own AWESOME traditional tale with your audience being me! But I want them to have a twist. Instead of goats, I want you to come up with three different animals. Here is what I want you to do each day to help build up to our final write. Remember to click on the star icons for all the slides and resources.

 

On Monday you are going to read the Three Billy Goats Gruff and answer questions.

On Tuesday, you are going to focus on expanded noun phrases, (adjectives and noun) to describe a troll.

On Wednesday you will focus on expanded noun phrases again, but today you will describe different animals.

On Thursday I want you to start writing your own version of the Three Billy Goats - remember to stop half way and then read through your work and check for full stops and capital letters.

On Friday I want you to complete your story and then send a picture of it for me to read please!

 

Go into each folder below to find out more about your daily learning!

Spelling

We are on WEEK 2 of our work on the 'eye' sound.

 

'y' is by far the most common way of making the 'eye' sound at the end of word. We will also look at the  ‘y’ changing to ‘i’ before adding ‘es’.

 

This weeks spellings are inside your spelling book. Just as normal and described below write a sentence for each word. To go over and above make each sentence interesting. Can you add an expanded noun phrases (See English on Tuesday if you can't remember what one is.) 

 

Week 1
• Monday – Thursday: Week 1 spelling work consists of children practising these words (using a writing pencil), using the look cover write check method. They can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if they would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on all of the spelling words you have been practising. Reflect on any words you found tricky – make these words/rules your focus for next week.


Week 2
• Monday – Thursday: Week 2 spelling work consists of children including each word in a sentence then writing the sentences in their spelling book. They can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if they would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on all of the spelling words you have been practising.

Fun ways to practise your spellings!

Maths

This week I would like to work on one of our favourite topics - multiplication.

 

I would like you to start each day with a two minute challenge. How many of your 2s, 5s or 10s times tables can you say?

e.g. 0 x 10 = 0

       1 x 10 = 10

        2 x 10 = 20

 

Can you get a bit further each day!

 

Below you will find two activities for each day. One is a fluency activity to practise your skills. The second activity will be problem solving or reasoning to deepen your understanding. 

Have fun and I can't wait to see your work on dojo!

Topic

This week's Topic challenge is to do with Design and Technology. I want you to be creative, arty but also challenge your engineering neurons!

 

Your challenge this week is to create an Easter Card for someone you care about. To go over and above I want you to include a moving part! The slides below give you some ideas, but don't worry if you can't. Instead concentrate on being creative and producing a card which includes a heading (Happy Easter) and a wonderful picture to do with Easter

 

Take a photograph of your finished card for me to have a look at!

Physical

This week I want you to get active by doing Joe Wicks workout each morning and have a go at Squish the Fish Yoga!
