Tuesday 2nd 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 ‘ant/ent’. Tuesday’s task in your booklet is to find all the ant/ent words in the passage. Maybe you could play 10 minutes of Nessy also? Watch the video below which may help you with your spellings this week. I think you'll have to click to open it in YouTube rather than watch it here.
Tables –I will post on Seesaw your tables which you can write down and try and then you can mark them yourself using the marking slide…no cheating. You are then going to learn dividing by 4 for tomorrow from your table page.
Literacy – Punctuation Revision
Today I’d like you to practise punctuating sentences. Throughout P5 we have looked at full stops, capital letters, question marks, exclamation marks and using commas for both lists and clauses (I know this one was tricky). Have a look at the two videos below which recap some of the different punctuation marks we’ve looked at. They may cover some others too, but just focus on full stop, capital letters, question marks, exclamation marks and commas.
Do you think you’re now a ‘Punctuation Pro’?Have a look at the PPT below which helps you revise this a little more and perhaps when you’ve finished you can play this game to practise.
Have a little go at your worksheet for today, punctuating the sentences and have a look on Studyladder for a punctuation POD also where you can practise more if you need/want to.
Numeracy – Formal Multiplication HTUxU
Today again we’re going to look at written multiplication but today for Squares & Triangles, you’re going to look at HTU x U.
Again, check SEESAW for an explanation and try the examples on a whiteboard before trying your work for today found on the explanation on SEESAW. J
P.E. – BBC Winter Sports Programme 2
Today we’re continuing our BBC radio programme on Winter Sports. Today’s programme focuses on Ice Sports and you may need to pause throughout the programme when asked to do so and it lasts around 20-30 minutes depending on how long you pause for. The children told me on Friday they enjoyed last week’s session, so hopefully they’ll enjoy this week too.
The second dance session focuses on ice sports, with movements and sequences based on ice-hockey, figure skating and bobsleigh. In ice-hockey you learn moves for skating across the ice and chasing a puck, with spins, tricks and flicks. It does ask you to pair up for balances etc., but perhaps try on your own or use a wall. You will learn a series of slow, controlled balances and counter-balances in paired figure-skating poses. Then travelling along looping, curving or spiralling pathways with long, sliding, ice-skating steps. For bob sleighing, again you may hear them talking about pairs and joining into groups of 4, but don’t worry, you can do this on your own.
Well done for completing Tuesday’s activities. Rest up for another day of fun activities tomorrow and maybe do some reading if you can to finish your afternoon! J
