Weekly tasks:

Spellings:

Practise your spellings daily using one of the activities from our school's spelling approach. A spelling test will be set on Friday through Purple Mash.

 

Science:

Our Science topic this term is ‘Plants’.

 

This week can you go on a wild plant hunt? This could be in your garden or if you are going for a walk. There is a presentation below which talks about different wild plants. Perhaps you recognise some of them? There is also a selection of wild plant photos you can look at and a plant checklist you can take on your plant hunt. Tick if you see any of these wild plants. Additionally, you could complete the plant labelling activity which has been set on Purple Mash for you.

*Optional project*

If you would like to, you could plant some seeds or beans in the garden or a plastic cup. Have a think about what it will need to grow and look after it over the next few weeks. You can keep a diary of your plant as it starts to grow, take pictures, measure it or write about it. Below is an example of a plant diary that you could use:

Topic:

Our topic this term is called ‘In Grandma’s Day’. In this topic we will be looking at changes within living memory. Our first focus will be on toys.

 

Last week you were finding out about toys your parents and grandparents played with when they were children. This week you are going to think about toys that are around today. Choose a toy that you own (or a few toys). There is a presentation with some questions to think about. Have a think about what the toys do and what they are made from. Draw a picture of your favourite toy and label it. See if you can write sentences to describe what it does and what it is made from. You can use the writing template below.

Phonics:

Ruth Miskin is doing live phonics streaming daily with different sets of speed sounds. She holds sessions at 9.30/10.00/10.30 in the mornings. This follows the same format as our phonics sessions in school. The children can practise set 2 and 3 sounds.

You could practise phonics daily using the weblink listed below.

 

Keep an eye on the English resources section of our class webpage as we will be adding phonics resources and sounds that the children can practise. This week we have added some additional sound cards for the children to learn if they are confident in reading set 2 and 3 sounds.

PSHE & wellbeing:

Using the link below, go onto BBC Bitesize to see the videos and activities on ‘How to be a good friend’.
