Thursday 11th February
Morning Check in on Seesaw – this will be going live at 9 a.m., but don’t panic, you have all day to respond.
Phonics – Our sound of the week is n/nn/gn/kn. Thursday’s task is a snakes and ladders game in your pack. You could maybe orally use the word you land on in a sentence.
Here are some games you could play too today to revise your phonics:
Tables –I will post your tables on SEESAW which you can write down and try and then you can mark them yourself using the marking slide…no cheating.
Reminder: I’d like you to complete a Friday Assessment tomorrow which is in your home learning pack. I will call out your spellings on Seesaw – make sure you do the correct group. So spend some time learning your spellings and revising your dividing tables (7,8 and 9). You’ll also have some sentences to find adverbs too.
Literacy - Sentence Builder
Last week, we were revising our parts of speech and this week you have looked at adverbs.
Today, I’d like you to make up sentences which have all 4 parts of speech in them and write these in your work book.
Red, Blue & Green Group – 8 sentences
Yellow Group – 6 sentences
Purple Group – 5 sentences.
I would love it if you can colour code your sentences using the following. Take some time to play first, before deciding what part of speech is and then colour code. It can be harder than you think to make up sentences and get it right, so don’t panic if you find this tricky.
Have some fun with this and be imaginative.J
Here are some examples to get you started:
Mrs Boyd likes to run quickly on Saturday, especially in the wet rain.
The little girl ate the huge ice-cream slowly, so she enjoyed the sweet flavour of the ice-cream.
I went to the bank yesterday, but it was closed.
Numeracy – 2D Shape
The Pentagon and The Hexagon
Today I’d like you to explore the pentagon (5 sided shape) and the hexagon (6 sided shape).
I like to remember that heXagon has siX sides because they both have a X in them.
You should have a pentagon/hexagon in your pack which you can cut out and use to draw around for today.
We’re going to be thinking about the regular pentagon and hexagon which means that all the sides are equal and the same length. This means that they will have the number of lines of symmetry to match the number of sides it has.
Therefore, your pentagon will have 5 lines of symmetry.
The regular hexagon will have 6 lines of symmetry.
Look at the slide show below which names some common regular polygons and tells you some facts about them.
You will be asked if you know where there is a huge building called the pentagon and how bees are associated with hexagons? If you’re not sure, why don’t you use GOOGLE to help you find out.
Afterwards you can do some mindfulness colouring which I know some of you enjoyed last week.
Topic (WAU) – Continue yesterday’s poster/presentation
Continue your poster/presentation and send to me on SEESAW or email.
I would also like to make a video of your favourite thing about the topic so please send me a video on SEESAW this week of you telling me what your favourite part of the topic was/what you learned. These should be relatively short and no longer than 30 seconds if possible…shorter is fine! J
These will then be compiled into a longer video and put on the website so make sure you’re not in your pyjamas please…maybe if you have your Stone Age outfit, you could dress up in it again to record your video?
Please make sure your video is sent to me before 12 p.m. on Friday 12th February.
Well done for completing Thursday’s activities. Rest up for another day of fun activities tomorrow and maybe do some reading if you can to finish your afternoon! J
Mrs Boyd xo
