Thursday 28th 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.
Phonics – Our sound of the week is t. Thursday’s task is to work out the word using the clues in your phonics booklet – it’s a little tricky but I’ll post the list of words on SEESAW this week to help you. Maybe you could play 10 minutes of Nessy also?
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. You’ll also have some grid multiplication and past tense verbs. J
Changing sentences from present to past tense
regular and irregular verbs
Today in Literacy you’re going to change sentences from present tense to past tense and write these out into your book.
Today there are a mixture of regular and irregular verbs, so some will add –ed following the spelling rules we looked at last week and some will be irregular and you will have looked at them this week.
Before you have a go at today’s work, why don’t you play the following games and have a look at the PPT to practice some words which may come up today! You'll need your whiteboard handy to write down your words and then you can check them at the end.
Red, Blue and Green Groups – Please write your sentences out into your book today neatly and underline your verb. Extension worksheet can be done on the page.
Yellow Group – Work on the worksheet today.
Purple – Present to past tense verbs and sentences on the worksheet.
Here are some games you can play to finish your lesson for today.
Numeracy – Apples in the Baskets
Today I’d like you to try a logic and reasoning activity in Numeracy. We’ve done a few of these in class, but today I’d like you to use a list to help you solve it. I’m going to model this on SEESAW to show you how to set out your work.
The key is to READ the clues carefully as the wording of them can be quite confusing at times. You may find the solution quite quickly or it might take you a little longer. I want to see your list and I want to see your wrong attempts on your list too….that’s OK. That’s you showing your thinking.
Once you think you’ve got it, upload to SEESAW for me to check.
Your extension challenge is then to make up an Apples in the Basket puzzle for me to solve, but you MUST check it works before sending it to me and remember not to send me the answer. J
Topic (WAU) – Neolithic Farming and Tools
At the start of the Neolithic, people began to grow domesticated wheat and barley crops and to herd new animals such as cows, pigs and sheep; they nonetheless seem to have continued to use wild resources, such as hunted deer or gathered wild berries, as well. They were the first farmers and found everything they needed at their permanent settlement. They made sure to settle near water too. Their houses became more permanent in structure and were rectangular made out of planks of word with a straw roof.
The Neolithic farmers still used stone tools and weapons, however they changed in their appearance and became more complex in nature. They also used a saddle quern to grind wheat and corn to make their own bread.
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
