Thursday

Week commencing 13.7.20

Tomorrow (Friday 17th July) I will be hosting a Zoom meeting from the classroom and I would love for you to join. This will be a great way for us all to meet each other before we break up for the holidays and for us to be able to say hello to our friends.

 

To be able to do this you will either need to download the Zoom app onto your phone or tablet or on Tuesday take yourself to the Zoom website and click on join meeting. The website is Zoom.us. You must have a camera on your computer if you choose to do it this way. Once you click on join meeting it will ask you for a Meeting ID and password. These will be sent out to you on Thursday by text message, please do not sign in before Friday's meeting time as it will not work.

 

The meeting does require the children to be with parents/carers in a central location in the house and to be dressed appropriately for the meeting. If you have any questions about the meeting or downloading the app then please get in touch through Class Dojo or send a message through to school today. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

Reading

Listen to a story that is for older readers (maybe you have an older sibling that you could listen to, two birds one stone!). I'd recommend David Walliams stories or anything Harry Potter you can get your ears tuned into. Listen to a few pages and see if you can draw a picture of what has happened from your minds eye. 

 

Spelling

On page 18, we will be looking at the "oo" family of sounds. They can be written as oo: poo at the zoo, ue: come to the rescue, u-e: huge brute or ew: chew the stew.

  1. Mark the sentences by crossing out the incorrect spelling choice for the oo family of sounds.
  2. Unscramble the letters to make real words. I would try to find which oo sound you have and fill in the other letters.

 

Maths

I have set some Mathletics challenges for you to complete this week. I would like you to try to complete these by yourself however you can use objects or drawings to help you if you need to. It will be nice to see how you have progressed over this time I've not seen you!

Talk for Writing

We will be working from page 17 today. You have found a message in a bottle from Sam and Polly. Read the letter and write a reply to them. Will you help them?

 

Maths

On pages 24 and 25 we will be dividing which means sharing out into equal groups. The book introduces the ÷ symbol which means "shared between." So for the example: 6 ÷ 2 = 3, you can read it as "six pencils shared between two equals three pencils each."

  1. Read each maths story to find out how many groups we need to share the objects between. Draw circles around the objects to group them making sure each group has the same amount inside. They must be equal!
  2. Can you share the paint between 3 paintings and the scissors between 5 children?

Extra Challenge

Read the problem and see if you can use objects or drawing to help you solve how many paintbrushes are in each pot.

 

Grammar

On page 14, we will be looking at the "oi" family of sounds. The letters oi: spoil the boy and oy: toy for a boy all make the same sound. The oi spelling is usually found in the middle of a word, the oy spelling is usually found at the end of a word.

  1. Use the letters inside the fish to make a word with the oi family sounds. Start by making the oi sound and see what letters you have left.
  2. Complete the crossword by choosing the correct spelling choice for the words. Remember the rule about which sound goes where.

Grammar

On page 9 we will see how important finger spaces are at separating the words in a sentence.

  1. Time to be a mini-teacher. Tick the sentences that use finger spaces correctly.
  2. Fix this broken sentence by using fingers spaces. Look at when Ben has done in the picture to help you.
  3. The three sentences are broken. Work out why they are broken and match it up to the missing punctuation.

 

Talk for Writing

Reread page 11. Today I would like to rewrite the diary letter from Sayeeda in your best handwriting. Remember to include capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

 

Maths

We are working from pages 14 and 15. It's subtraction today! We begin with a whole number and we take away one part and are left with another part that is smaller than the whole.

Now Try These

  1. Read the maths stories. The whole is represented by cogs. Cross out the part we are subtracting and count to find the part you have left.
  2. Now we will use a number line. Read each maths story then put your finger from the whole on the number line. Jump down the number line the number from the part we are taking away to count back. The number you land on is the other part.
  3. You may want to use stones, pasta or drawing to help you make sense of the problem where Robbie is losing screws.

An Extra Challenge

A whole part part model will be of huge help here as we know about numbers that work together in addition and subtraction families.

Geography

Why are our oceans important?

In this lesson, we will be learning about the importance of our oceans. They are a huge part of our planet and we need to look after them. We will be gaining more understanding of the size of the oceans and how important they are to life on Earth. You will need a piece of paper, a pencil and your wonderful brain. Let’s get started!

Talk for Writing

We will be working from pages 6 and 7 today. Reread the story again to remind yourself of Sayeeda's adventure. Can you match who said what to the characters in the story? For the quiz, try to answer in full sentences.

 

Maths

Head on over to pages 4 and 5 where you will have a quick refresh on counting. Remember to touch count to make sure you don't miss any or count any twice.

Now Try These

  1. Count the different coloured balloons.
  2. Follow the instructions from the bottom of the page to colour in the correct number of objects.
  3. Read the questions and count the animals as instructed.

An Extra Challenge

Fill in the missing spaces to make the sentences make sense. You will need to work out which colour dinosaurs fit correctly.

 

Grammar

On page 4, we will be practicing using the word and to join to words together. These two words are typically the nouns in the sentences that you will be reading. (A noun is the name of an object, thing or someone e.g. cap, bottle, car, brother.)

  1. These sentences have two and's but only one is in the correct place. Cross out the one that does not belong in that place. Remember, the and must join two words in a sentence together.
  2. The sentences have two suggestions for where to write the word and. Read the sentence twice, putting the word and in each place. Decide which space makes most sence and joins tow words together.

 

Topic

Geography

Where are the world's oceans?

Today, we will be learning about the 5 oceans on our earth and the location of them in relation to the 7 continents. We will be looking at which continents surround the oceans. We will then compare the difference between an ocean and a sea. In this lesson you will need a pencil, a piece of paper or an exercise book and your wonderful brain. Let’s get started!
