 A challenge a day!  

Good morning, I hope you have had a good weekend .  I have enjoyed seeing your videos and photos of the things you have been doing and I am so proud of you all.  If there is anything I can help you with, pleased message me and I will see what I can do.  To keep your brain active remember to try and read every day (a book a day keeps the cobwebs away). 

When I put worksheets on the resources, please don't feel you have to print them off.  They are there for you to look at and use them as a guide.  If you would like to copy them please do but don't feel you have to print them off. 

Don't forget to contact me on Dojo - let me know how you are all getting on, what's working and what's not working so much. 

Remember you are ALL doing an amazing job and you are going to have days when you feel you just can't do it, but you are not alone in that feeling so focus on the positives and don't lose hope. 

Some live lessons and virtual tours.

Year 1
 With this being our final week before the children get the chance to meet their new teacher, I thought English could be a time of looking back over this year and at the things you have done and then preparing something to bring in for their new teacher.

Monday

English 

 Even though this year has been cut short and we didn’t get chance to finish it together, I want you to think about all of the things we did get to do together.  

Can you create a mini timeline of the things we have done? Remember a timeline puts everything in order starting with what happened first and leading up to today.  

 

End of Reception                                                                                        End of year 1 

           -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

 

Below are a few things we did get to do this year (talk about them, can you remember them?) place them in order on your timeline but add your own if remember other things or things that happened in school or  to you specifically … like turning 6, made a new friend, your first tooth falling out, learnt to ride your bike…?

Look back at your timeline, pick one thing from it which you either remember the most or you would call your favourite memory.  

Draw a picture to represent it, think of as many adjectives as you can that will help you describe that memory or what happened. Add them around your picture.  

 

Phonics

We will look at 'se' as in 'cheese'  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5T1FbpIgvU

Maths

Look at the ppt on quarters (Farmer Jake).  Try the Tuesday challenge in resources.  

 

Science

This week we are looking at a freshwater creature, it is a frog. It is called an amphibian because it lives both in water and on land.  

First look at this information  

http://www.harcourtschool.com/activity/science_up_close/212/deploy/interface.ht ml  If this link does not work try https://sites.google.com/a/asu.edu/animal-life-cycles/it-s-a-frog-s-life-1 which has lots of information

Then try to make a life cycle picture of your own, here are 2 to try….  

The first  http://flash.topmarks.co.uk/3689  is an online picture and the second you can print and cut out or draw your own. Look in the resources for an idea.  You could use a paper fastener in the centre but even Blutak will do as long as you can turn the top part around.  Then you find the correct words in the windows that you cut out. 

Wednesday

English

Write about your memory in any way you wish. Remember to say your sentence before you write it. Don’t forget capital letters and full stops.

 

Phonics

Today we will look at 'tch' as in 'kitchen' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ot3eJNkXgwE

Maths

Look at the Wednesday challenges.  Pick one or two cards to try. 

 

Art

This week see if you can make a cartoon animation. Go to http://toytheater.com/sticker/   

Choose a background and a sticker and then record it getting bigger/ smaller or moving. Have some fun and use your imagination ! 

Thursday

English  (Work to take in on your transition day) 

Create an all about me poster for your new teacher, add yourself to the centre (it could be a painting of yourself, a drawing or even a photo), then add 5 interesting facts about yourself that you would like your new teacher to know.  

Add family to your poster, perhaps a mini family tree especially if you have siblings in the school.  

Add things you really enjoy doing, let them know of anything you think you need more help with … maths, reading/ phonics, spellings, learning to skip???  

 

Phonics

Today we will learn about 'se' as in 'horse' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZWycZlvJXE

 

Maths

 Today we are going to be sorting things into either ½ or ¼  Look at the resources and see if you can sort the shapes into the right column.      

 

Topic

Water habitats.  A habitat is a place where animals and creatures live.  Animals that live in water adapt to their habitat (fish that live at the bottom of the sea (where it is dark) have lamps out the top of their heads to help them see).  Your challenge is to create a water habitat in a box (a shoe box size/if need be simply design one). Try and make the habitat for a specific animal if you can, do a little bit of research to find out what that animal needs in its habitat to survive.   

See the sheet in resources for some ideas. 

Friday

English (Work to take in on your transition day) 

 Tell your new teacher about your favourite book. Draw the front cover or a character from your book. Tell them why you like it. Remember neat handwriting

-tall letters ( l t h b k) all start by going straight up.

Maths

Look at the PPT.   There is an investigation that you can challenge yourself to try.  

 

RE

Buddhist festival Wesak  

Look at the powerpoint that tells you all about the Buddhist festival Wesak and why they celebrate it.

people to join in with its celebrations.

How much money do you have?  Write the total, remember to give the coins back! J  

If you like worksheets; there are 2 choices, the first uses smaller amounts of money and the next is more difficult.

Year 2 English

With this being our final week before the children get the chance to meet their new teacher, we thought English could be a time of reminiscing and then preparing something to bring in for their new teacher.

Monday

Can you create a mini timeline of the things we have done? Remember a timeline puts everything in order starting with what happened first and leading up to today.

Thursday

Friday

This week’s spellings are question words (Spellings resources below- remember to try and do a spelling activity each day, to keep practising – more handwriting, finding more spelling words in books, wordsearch etc)

Look through the PowerPoint together.

Then use the spelling words given in the PowerPoint for some handwriting practice.

Try your best to remember the formation of each letter.

-all letters (except capitals) start on the line
