Week 6 11.05 - 15.05

English

This week Team, we are going to look at writing a DESCRIPTION. Last week you wrote instructions to create your own Marvellous Medicine's like George. This week, I want to know what will happen when you give your new creation to Grandma. You are going to write a description of how Grandma grows, shrinks or zooms around the room after she takes a sip of her new medicine. 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 my favourite chapter from George's Marvellous Medicine and answer questions.

On Tuesday, you are going to focus on using adverbs.

On Wednesday, I want you to plan your instructions. Remember this just has to be notes.

On Thursday, I want you to write the first part of your description. 

On Friday, I want you to complete your descriptions and check it through carefully.

Spelling

We are on WEEK 2 of our work on the ‘a’ which makes a sound like ‘or’ 

 

This week's words have the letter ‘a’ which makes a sound like ‘or’  Please help by practising these words with your child. Your child is learning how letters can make different sounds.  

 

You can find this week's spellings as a word document below. 

 

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 we are going to focus on position and movement!

 

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 describe movement.

On Tuesday, we will be learning to describe turns.

On Wednesday, we will be looking at movements and turns.

On Thursday, we will be looking at shape patterns focusing on turns.

On Friday, we will be reviewing our work on movement.

Topic

This week Team, we are going back to look at Geography. So far this term we have looked at the continents and oceans. Today we are going to focus in on countries. In particular, the four countries which make up the United Kingdom!

 

As always team, I would like you to open and then work through the presentation below. This week's challenge is to create a map of the UK showing the four countries it is made up from. I have included a template map below, but you can create your map anyway you would like.
