We’re carrying on our stories today lovely Kingfishers, you have been sending some fabulous chapters on Class Dojo, I am so impressed with your creativity, they really are a pleasure to read! You can finish them during the holidays if you want to or finish them today if you prefer.

Maths

As our final lesson on time we are going to practice telling the time from a stopwatch. So get yours out and make your family do some crazy things so you can time them!

Tuesday 19th May 2020

Goodmorning Kingfishers, for your literacy this week we are going to write a story. You can choose between these different options for your story. They get harder as you go down the page.

A. Retell George’s Marvellous Medicine in your own words.

B. Write an alternative version of George’s Marvellous Medicine with your self as the main character. How would this change the story?

C. Write an alternative version of the story where you change one things about the story. I would love it if your story was set somewhere different, maybe in your story The main characters parents own a zoo. You could change the character of Grandma to be a grizzly old Grandad or a terrifying aunty! You could change the effect that the medicine has on the animals. You could change the ending and have George make more of  his medicine.

D. Write a sequel to George’s Marvellous Medicine (George’s Marvellous Medicine 2!). You will need to think carefully about what you want to happen next, does George manage to replicate the medicine? Does George open a factory and sell all 4 different types of potion and become rich and famous. Remember your story will still need: an introduction, a build-up, a problem and a resolution.

Fill in this Story Planner to help you with your writing tomorrow.

Story Plan

Here is a plan that I have done to show you what it might look like.

Maths

Please do your Big Maths online for me. We have been experiencing some user difficulties because in the ‘Learn it’s’ test the timer goes quite fast and we aren’t quite that fast as timing. In school we have been having much more success if an adult  types in the answers. So just on this test I would ask that you get an adult or other expert typist (teenagers tend to be excellent at typing!) to give you a hand.

This Afternoon’s activity is a bit of a random one, a bit of science, a bit of maths and a bit of art.

Yesterday I was watching a spider making a web in the garden and I thought how beautiful it was. I was amazed at how much silk it could make in it’s tiny little body and how it managed to reel it back in when it decided it had gone wrong.

So I decided to do some research into how they make their webs.

This video shows how a spider creates their web.

This video shows the pattern that they make.

And this is a video of how they connect their web together! It’s fascinating!

This video from 27 seconds to 1 minute and 10 seconds quickly tells us how a spider makes its web.

Now, have a go at making your own spiders web design. You could draw a spiders web using your ruler.

See the source image

Sew one on cardboard, paper or material

or weave one with sticks and wool.

Have fun, I can’t wait to see what you all make!

Topic – The science of Hot Air Balloons!

Lots of you asked how Hot Air Balloons fly.

Air expands (gets bigger) as it gets warmer so that means that the air in the hot air balloon is lighter than the air outside of it. This means that the balloon floats upwards.

I really enjoyed doing this experiment to make an easy version of a hot air balloon!

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bang/handson/toasterballoons.shtml

There is a video to show you how to do it and then underneath it explains a little more of the science behind it.

And here is an interesting video about how to fly real hot air balloons.

Good Morning my beautiful Kingfishers!

Have you all had a lovely break! I would love to hear about what you have been up to!

Year 3 I sent you a message on class dojo about our rocks science lesson! Check it out at 10:30am!

I am so sorry everyone! I forgot to upload your spelling lists at the end of last term! Hopefully you have had a nice break from them an are ready to learn some spellings again. I will upload a list of 12 spellings. If your child usually has different spellings from their work with Mrs Sowter then I have asked her to send you these through on Classdojo.

Please read through all the spellings with your child and talk about what the words mean if they are unsure. This is our time when we talk about vocabulary and maybe learn some new words!

Your child should know how many spellings they learn each week but if anyone can’t remember please get in contact with me and I will have a good guess! (all of my paperwork is at school!) Please feel free to use your best judgement on this.

The following Monday I will ask you to test your child, as a reward if they get them all right you can send me a message and I will give them a dojo point or give them 10 minutes of extra playtime, time on the Ipad or a sneaky sweetie if you prefer! Whatever you feel works best for you!

So this week’s spellings are all for our writing on Georges Marvellous medicine.

  1. Oil
  2. Cream
  3. Paste
  4. Paint
  5. Lotion
  6. Medicine
  7. Potion
  8. Marvellous
  9. Sensational
  10. Majestic
  11. Beneficial
  12. Detrimental

Good Luck! If you would like to extend this then please practice using these words in sentences to imbed their meaning. Decide on the sentence with your child and then help them to remember it while they write it down making sure to spell their spelling word correctly.

For Maths today we are going to start thinking about a different sort of measuring! Length. Have a chat to your grown up about what length means then have a look at the powerpoint!

¡Buenas tardes Kingfishers!

Some of you might want to recap the numbers 1 – 10 so here is the video from last week where you can repeat after each number. This might also be a good reminder if you want to move on to the numbers all the way to 20.

Here is a slightly bonkers video which teaches up right the way up to 20.

Don’t forget you have your game in your pack to practice. Maybe you could play it during the week to keep practicing!

¡Adiós amigos!

 

Chapter 10 of Danny the Champion of the world (in 2 parts). I hope it works!

 

Tuesday 31st of March (Day 9)

Hellooo!

Literacy:

For literacy we are thinking about commas. Daffodils and Bluebells I would like you to think about using commas to separate items in a list, Tulips I would like you to think about other uses for commas. They are one of the trickier types of punctuation because they have lots of different meanings. Check out this powerpoint to explain.

You’ll need to work through these challenges with a grown-up today Kingfishers, they are all using your knowledge about mass and reading scales. Good Luck and let me know how you get on!

ICT

This afternoon we are going to create our own avatar.

An avatar is a picture that we use to represent us on the internet. This is so that we can keep ourselves safe while we are online by not sharing too much personal data like pictures of ourselves.

You can create an avatar to look any way you like. Some people like their avatar to look like themselves whilst some prefer to change everything about themselves and make their avatar blue with snakes for hair instead so the choice is up to you.

You could: draw your avatar on paper, use an app, (I used an app called ‘bitmoji’ to create my avatar) or use a website (this is an example of one I found which was easy to use https://www.kartunix.com/simpleac )

Happy Creating, can’t wait to see all of your avatars!

Monday 30th March 2020 (Day 8)

Good morning Kingfishers as we start week 2 of home learning.

This morning we are moving onto chapter 3 of our story and below there are some questions for you to think about as you read! I’m really enjoying reading this story as I haven’t read it since I was a child (which seems like a loooong time ago!) Are you enjoying it so far?

Comprehension Day 8

This Afternoon I will post a video (or it might have to be two) of myself reading the next chapter of ‘Danny the Champion of the World’ another of Roald Dahl’s stories which you started reading with Miss Illsley and lots of you really wanted to finish. 

Maths

Today we are practicing reading scales . This skill comes in handy for lots of different types of

This Morning for Maths we are continuing with our measuring mass quest in the best way! So put on your aprons, get out those scales and let’s do some cooking! Share what you’ve made and how much you needed of all the different ingredients on Class Dojo, I think I’m going to be feeling rather jealous and rather peckish!

Thursday 26th March (Day 4 of Isolation!)

Good Afternoon Kingfishers, it is gloriously sunny outside so I hope you’re getting out there and enjoying it!

Thank you for posting your wonderful work up on your portfolios! I’ve have really enjoyed looking at it all, posting my little comments for you and rewarding you with those dojo points! Please keep on posting them up for me to see!

Today a plumber has arrived at my house because my bathroom has become an emergency situation so it has been tooo noisy to film any videos. I’ll hopefully be back with you tomorrow!

Today we are practicing writing expanded noun phrases. Take a look at the word document below for a reminder and to learn about your task.

Expanded noun phrases Day 4

In maths we are going to begin thinking about measuring mass (weighing) because tomorrow or over the weekend I will be asking you to do some practical weighing for the best reason! Cooking!

So, today have a look at this worksheet to remind you about reading scales and the units we use to measure mass.

This afternoon’s task comes from Mrs Sowter, she’s missing you all greatly and is enjoying seeing what you’re getting up to on Class Dojo.

She has organised some work on our R.E topic which is looking at the Christian celebrations at this time of year. So today’s lesson is all about Lent.

Wednesday 25th March (Day 3)

Today I received a parcel, it was a big box of crickets, locusts, worms and grubs for Spikey to have for his dinner.

I thought as I don’t know how long the pet shops will be open for, I best stock up on disgusting crawly treats for our friendly neighbourhood hedgehog. He misses you all and can’t wait to see you soon (with just the one eye!)

This morning we are going to read chapter 2 of George’s Marvellous Medicine, are you itching to know what will happen next? I know I am! When you have read it have a think about these questions. Comprehension Questions Day 3

Tomorrow we will be looking at Expanded noun phrases. Can you remember what they are?

In Maths this morning I have a little challenge for you. It involves odd and even numbers.

Odd and even numbers Day 3

Have a go first but if you get stuck here is a video which will help you.

If you get stuck, then watch this!

Buenos tardes Kingfishers!

This afternoon I would like you to learn some Spanish!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ydJr1Is8xI

This is a song which shows you how to count from 1 – 10 and back down again. There are others on youtube if you prefer but this one is good because you can repeat each line after the man on the video. I don’t know about you, but I always remember things much better when they have a catchy tune!

After you have listened to the song and had a go at repeating the numbers back there is a game for you to play in your pack. Just concentrate on the numbers 1 – 10 this week and we will add onto that next week and go to 20!

Gracias amigos!

Adios!

 

Tuesday 24th March (Day 2)

Hi! Some of you have requested I upload activities the night before to allow you to prepare for the next day so here it is! Monday’s activities are still underneath if you haven’t got round to them yet!

Literacy!

In Literacy I would like you to think about punctuation. We have learnt lots about punctuation in the past but this PowerPoint should recap what you know.

Punctuation presentation Day 2

Here are the tasks for you to do!

Bluebell’s Punctuation Day 2

Daffodil table’s Punctuation Day 2

Tulip’s Punctuation Day 2

Maths!

For our counting practice today I would like you to count to 30 in 2’s and back down to 0 zero again!

For our ‘learn its’ practice today I would like you to say a times table of your choice out loud. Do you know any of the division facts to go with it?

In ‘it’s nothing new’ today we will be adding. So, remember that we start by putting the bigger number in our head and then count on the smaller number.

Try these easy questions, maybe you even know them as learn its! Answer them on your whiteboard.

5 + 6 =

12 + 4 =

7 + 5 =

Today in calculation we ae going to be adding 3 numbers together. Here is a very quick video explaining how we do this!

Maths Day 2

And here is the activity I would like you to do.

Adding 3 numbers Day 2

ICT – coding

So you’ll have to let me know how this goes…

If you are in year 3 you will have done some coding with me last year but if you are in year 2 this will be new to you!

Today we are going to use a website https://hourofcode.com/uk/learn to learn the basics of coding and code our very own game.

 

Bluebells and Daffodils can choose:

Puppy Adventure https://www.tynker.com/hour-of-code/puppy-adventure

Snoopy’s Snow Brawl https://hourofcode.com/codesnoopy

Code Monkey https://hourofcode.com/codemonkeyjr

 

Tulips can choose:

Minecraft https://hourofcode.com/mchoc

Flappy Bird https://hourofcode.com/flap

Star Wars https://hourofcode.com/star-wars

Frozen https://hourofcode.com/frzn

Each one will show you videos and walk you through the steps of how to write code to make a game this might take up to an hour to complete but you can have breaks in between levels. If you want to leave it and come back to it another day then you need to remember which level you got up to!

Good Luck and don’t forget you can contact me if you get stuck and I will try my best to help!
