Friday 3rd July 2020

Good morning lovely kingfishers and welcome to the last morning of this online home learning! I cannot wait to see most of you over the last two weeks in school! Over the weekend this page will be taken down and a new one created for all the Kingfishers and Herons with different things you can do if you want to over the holidays. Try to read and write a little bit every day and keep practicing those times tables so that you don’t loose them somewhere on holiday! But don’t forget to have lots of fun and adventures!

For literacy we are finishing our character description. Have a look at the PowerPoint to remind you how to use the information you have created and put it together to make a paragraph to introduce your character.

Good morning my sweeties,

For literacy this morning I would love you to have a go at creating ideas for your own character.

Use the same template as Tuesday to put down all of year ideas and then tomorrow we will write our character description. A sneaky trick to make it easier is to turn your pet into a superhero!

Grammar – nouns (names), adjectives (describing words), verbs (doing words)

Spellings – Consonants and vowels, using our phonics and remembering key words.

This is not a test! If you don’t know an answer please ask a grownup to help you. When you have finished, ask a grownup to mark it for you and talk about any answers you have got wrong.

This afternoon I want to talk about feelings, during lockdown I have been feeling lots of different things and often it is hard to explain how we are feeling or find the words to talk about it. Sometimes I have felt annoyed or angry or lonely because I can’t go out and see my family and friends or do the things I enjoy doing, but I have also felt happy because there are lots of lovely things that I can do at home, I’ve felt hot in all the wonderful sunshine and tired because I have been too hot at night to sleep! I’ve been feeling worried about what might happen, confused about the rules and what they mean and sad because I can’t see all of you and have the nice cuddles that I enjoy. All of these feelings are ok, and completely normal.

How have you been feeling?

I have found a colouring sheet which you could use over the next week to show how you are feeling by colouring in the emotions you feel during a day and I have made a blank version if you would like to draw your own pictures or even take photos of yourself showing the emotions to stick on!

Whatever you are feeling, that’s ok, make sure that if you don’t enjoy how you are feeling, maybe it’s sad, or angry or confused, that you talk to someone about it. Your mummy or daddy and I are all here to listen if you need to talk.

Spellings

This term I am going to set three levels of spelling work to help us practice some of our spelling patterns. Have a look at each level and decide which one is best for you. You should start from the easiest and see if you can spell the words on the list. If you can’t then these are the words you should practice this week, if you can then move onto the next list!

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

See the source image

or weave one with sticks and wool.

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

Literacy – New Spellings for you my darlings.

Spellings Sum 5

Maths

Maths 

This morning we’re looking at finding the amount of time in between two times. We call this the duration of time and it tells us how long an event or activity lasts for. 

This is one way that you can find the duration if you find it tricky. 

Sum 5 Day 1 Sum 5 Day 1 Durations of Time PPT

* in this activity we are finding the amount of time it takes for different children to walk to school. 

Sum 5 Day 1 Durations of time clocks activity

** This a slightly harder activity, finding the amount of time it takes for different activities. You can use the blank clocks if you want to colour in the amount of time that has passed on the clock. 

Sum 5 Day 1 Durations of time

Blank Clocks

*** This is the hardest worksheet and it involves digit clocks as well as analogue clocks. Only have a go at this sheet if you are feeling nice and confident about finding the duration of time! You can also use the blank clocks to help you.

Science

The wonder of flight

Explore this website which explains how wings work and has a video of how aeroplane wings are made!

In your book draw your own diagram to demonstrate how the four forces work to keep an aeroplane up in the sky.

Have a lovely day!
