Home Learning - WB 20/04/20

If you haven't been in contact could you drop me a quick email so I know that you are accessing this home learning or having any problems that I can help with. If you are finding any aspect of home learning difficult please let me know, I am here to help.
Hi everyone, I hope you all had a nice Easter and are safe and well.  Thank you for all your emails and pictures, please keep them coming, it's great to see how much you're all doing at home.  Well done Mums and Dads, you're doing a great job! This week BBC Bitesize are launching daily lessons that may also help.
Mums and Dads, please remember that you DO NOT have to complete all of this work - these are just ideas that might be useful to you. I'm very aware that many of you are working as well as trying to be educators. Be kind to yourselves and let the children play, watch TV or relax while you get the things that you need to done; then, find little pockets of time when you can try to do some focused work together. 
We'll also be adding the class newsletter and planning for the Summer term (you’ll be able to find this on the Curriculum Information page) for your information. Obviously, we don’t know at this point how much of the term will be spent out of school; however, whatever the situation we will continue to do our best to support you and your child

Here are some tasks to work on this week.
Words ending in the sound 'ee' that is spelt with a 'y'
very       happy      funny       party     family    dizzy     smelly    silly    jolly     sunny
Can you think of any other words that end this way? Can you put these words in a sentence?
Daily RWInc phonics lessons are available here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ  We follow Set 3 sounds, Set 3 reading and spelling lessons are live at 10:30 then available for 24 hours on the RWInc YouTube channel.
How many words can you write that include the following sounds: 
a-e           i-e        o-e        u-e       (These are our split digraphs also known as "best friends".   Mums and Dads, you may have heard these also called Magic e Words)
Here are some examples to start you off:   cake      bike   home     huge   
Story Reading:
Read along with the stories.  Dont forget school reading books.  Together, share books that you have at home, taking turns to read.
I know some of you are keeping in contact with family and friends by writing letters or emails, can you write a letter to someone you miss and include sentences with full stops, sentences with exclamation marks and question marks? 
You could even write me a letter, Mums and Dads could take a picture and email it to me or practice your typing skills. 
You may have seen the news story of Captain Tom Moore who has raised over £25 million for NHS charities.  It is his 100th birthday at the end of the month, if you would like to send him a card/picture/letter here's the address:

 Other Ideas:
Retell and rewrite your favourite story in your own words. Don't forget to write what happens at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of your story.
Keep up any diary writing.
A writing task from your pack.
Those of you that have started growing things in gardens and allotments, can you write a list and draw a picture of what you are growing?
We will move onto how plants grow in more detail next week.
We will be looking at weight and mass this week, teaching slides and activities can be found here:
You need to click on the + at the side of Week 1 to access this learning.  There are also activities, these activities are a great way of allowing children to talk about their understanding of weight and mass.
Can you do some baking to experience some real-life weighing, I would love to see your pictures.
Around the home can you find objects and compare which feel heavier/lighter.   Can you weigh objects using scales (if you have them) Can you order them heaviest to lightest.
Have a look in your kitchen (with an adult) can you fill jugs, cups and glasses and say if it is full, half full, empty. almost full, almost empty.
How many cups of water does it take to fill a jug/pan etc? Can you estimate an answer and then test.
Here are some games to play.
Use an addition/subtraction/Big Maths sheet from your pack to keep basic skils going.
Spring Time
Although we can't really get out to enjoy the warmer weather, we can learn about Spring.  What signs of Spring can you see outside? Have you noticed anything different about the weather or length of the days?
Make a Spring poster and include signs of Spring. Can you compare Spring to another season we have looked at? You could halve a piece of paper and have a Spring picture on one side and a Winter or Autumn picture on the other side.
On any (safe) walks can you look out for: buds on trees that will grow into leaves, blossom, different types of leaves, different types of flowers growing.  You could look at daily temperature and see if the temperate is getting colder or warmer. 
You may not get a chance to see any but keep an eye out for new baby animals if you live near fields.
Go outside (safely) What can you see? What can you hear? Can you hear all the birds? What can you feel? (warmth, sunlight etc)
Some examples of Spring Time art work, that can you create.
