Week 4 27.04 - 01.05

English

This week Team, we are going to look at another genre - Autobiographies. This piece of writing is all about giving information about yourself. How old you are. Where you are from. What you like and dislike. They are always written in the past tense, so that will be our main focus for the week. I am going to use parts of your autobiographies in your end of year reports! 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 about Victorian inventors and answer questions.

On Tuesday, you are going to focus on writing in the past tense

On Wednesday, I want you to plan your autobiographies. Rember this just has to be notes

On Thursday, I want you to write the first section. Describing yourself and what you like to do at home

On Friday, I want you to write about your time in Team 2. What are your favourite moments?

 

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

Spelling

We are on WEEK 2 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 a word document you can download and print out. Remember WEEK 2 is all about writing each of the words in a sentence. Try to make your sentences as interesting as possible. They could be funny, interesting or exciting!

 

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 pratise your spellings!

Maths

This week we are going to continue to work on shape.

 

We are going to carry on doing 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 to recognise and make patterns with 2D shapes.

On Tuesday, we will be learning to identify and count faces on 3D shapes.

On Wednesday, we will be counting edges of 3D sides.

On Thursday, we will look for and count vertices (corners) on 3D shapes

On Friday, we will finish the week by sorting 3D shapes into different categories.

Topic

This week's Topic challenge is to do with Geography again. Last week we learnt that the world is divided into CONTINENTS. But what surrounds the continents. That's right OCEANS! This week we are going to learn their names and find out some interesting facts,

 

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 another short video clip (They were AWESOME last week) to show something you have learnt about the oceans. It could be telling me your favourite fact, showing me a poster you have created, showing the oceans on Google Earth or singing the oceans song. 

 

I can't wait to see your videos!

Physical

Joe Wicks' workouts are an EPIC way to get your brains ready to learn. You can do it live at 9.00 am or watch it later on catch up! This week for yoga, lets go on a cosmic trolls adventure!
