Week 3 20.04 - 24.04

English

This week Team, we are going to look at another awesome genre - A STORY WITH A FAMILIAR SETTING. Can you remember when we looked at the story Marshall Armstrong is new to our school. Where was that story set? How many other familiar settings can you think of? We are going to base our story with a familiar setting on a tale about a little boy getting a kite for his birthday! By the end of the week you will write your own EPIC story with a familiar setting.  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 Kite and answer questions.

On Tuesday, you are going to focus on subordinating clauses, (because) to add detail

On Wednesday, you are going to look at subordination again, but this time focussing on the conjunction IF

On Thursday, I want you to plan your story using the mountain template. Remember you can magpie my ideas but try to make the story your own!

On Friday I want you to write 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 1 of our work on the y making the long 'e' sound.

 

This week's words end with the letter ‘y’ which are making a long ‘e’ sound ‘ee’ (‘ee’ as in ‘meet’).  Please help by practising these words with your child.

 

You can find this weeks spelling sheet as an image below, but also as a word document you can download and print out. If you can't print, just write the words out in your spelling books. 

 

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.

Maths

This week I would like to work on one of an AWESOME new topic... Shape.

 

We are going to start to do some new learning, so we will be working in our Power Maths books on certain days. When you click on the link below you we see a presentation for each day. Work through the slides and then work on the questions I ask you to do in your Power Maths book. Don't go further then I ask, as this will be learning for other days!

 

On Monday, we will be learning names of 2d and 3d shapes.

On Tuesday, we will be learning to draw 2d shapes accurately.

On Wednesday, we will be counting sides.

On Thursday, we will look at corners.

On Friday, we will finish the week by sorting shapes into different categories.

 

Topic

This week's Topic challenge is to do with Geography. We are going to start to learn about how the world is divided into CONTINENTS.

 

I would like you to work through the slides and activities in the document below. Your challenge by the end of the week is to create a short video clip (less than 1 minute) to show something you have learnt about the continents. It could be telling me your favourite fact, showing me a poster you have created, showing the continents on Google Earth or singing the continents song.

 

I can't wait to see your videos!

Continents
