Monday 18th January
Morning Check in on Seesaw – this will be going live at 9 a.m., but don’t panic, you have all day to respond. Don’t forget pack pick up today is from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and we would like you to wear a mask when doing so.
Phonics – Our sound of the week is ‘d’ with variations d/ed and dd. Monday’s phonics task will be your d/ed/dd sound sort you usually complete as Tuesday night’s homework. Maybe while you’re waiting for your pack, you could play 10 minutes of Nessy?
Tables – I would like you to learn to multiply any number by 10 today for being asked your tables tomorrow. (This is your Numeracy Lesson for today anyway so plenty of practice coming up)
Literacy – Comprehension
The Stone Age Artist
For your Literacy lesson today, I’d like you to have a go at the comprehension in your pack. Read carefully through your text and remember to clarify any words you are unsure of by using a dictionary if you can. After you have read your text for today, answer the questions. I have uploaded the answers to the comprehension below for someone at home, but you can also send to me on SEESAW if you wish. It is a tricky enough comprehension with some inferential questions making you think a little harder today…Happy Monday!
Extension: Can you make up 2/3 questions of your own? Send these to me and I may be able to ask them to other people on SEESAW
Numeracy – Multiplying a number by 10/100
Today in Numeracy I’d like you to learn about multiplying any number by 10. When we are multiplying numbers by 10 we need to move the numbers over one space to the left and place a 0 in the unit’s column. Have a little look at the following videos which will help you understand this a little better. I think the little girl in the video explains it probably better than I can….enjoy! (Just remember we call the ones column units)
Now that you watched the videos and hopefully understand this a little better, have a look at the PPT below. Again, it will teach you what to do and there is also some work for you to do on your whiteboard…so have it handy! J
You can also practise by playing these games:
Here are a few Kahoots you can play and it is live online until 12 p.m. on Tuesday. Remember to use your real name as your nickname so I know who you are.
Topic (WAU and ART) – Cave Paintings
Today you’re going to learn about a favourite pastime of early man and have a go yourself. To keep themselves busy, lots of hunters and gatherers would have drawn pictures and paintings on the walls of caves. They mainly drew animals and hunting scenes.
Early man used natural colors. You may have heard that they used charcoal to create these paintings. Actually, most art was not made with charcoal, but rather with mineral pigments, such as iron oxide (red ochre) or black manganese. They drew stick figures for people, but the animals were well drawn, and usually filled in with natural colors, to give them even more shape and substance.
When you think cave, you might think of a big place, with high ceilings. Not so…in order to reach the places where cave paintings have been found, early man had to crawl on his belly, through mazes of narrow, dark tunnels, by the light of a spoon-like oil lamp (which had to be hand carried and balanced carefully to hold the burning oil in the rounded part of the spoon - while crawling along on your belly), and carrying the paints he had carefully prepared, with no idea if he might run into, oh ... a cave lion or a wild boar, on the way.
Have a look at the PPT below to help you learn a little more about cave paintings before you have a go yourself and click on the link to be taken to a virtual tour of a cave. There are instructions in your work pack and a little video below to help show you what to do! 😀
Well done for completing Monday’s activities. Rest up for another day of fun activities tomorrow and maybe do some reading if you can to finish your afternoon!
