Wednesday 27th 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’. Wednesday’s task is to complete your 6 spelling sentences like you would normally do as homework on a Wednesday. You can use your phonics book which you should have at home in your schoolbag. Maybe you could play 10 minutes of Nessy also?
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 5 for tomorrow from your table page.
Five Little Snowflakes
Handwriting - In January of P5, we usually start to work in handwriting pen, but don’t worry about that if you don’t have a handwriting pen. If you do, why don’t you give it a go and I’ll model on SEESAW what we do if make a mistake so look out for that.
I would like you to spend some time practising your joined writing today by writing out this poem which might remind you of the snow we had on Sunday. How fun it was to have some snow to play in!
Use the work book you have been given in your pack and choose a lined page to write out this poem.
You can then illustrate your poem too like we do in class. Don’t forget to upload to your Seesaw journal to show me your great work. I’d love to see it!
Numeracy – x4 Puzzle
Your task today is to find 5 solutions to Mrs Boyd’s problem. As you can see from the picture of the house that there are 5 rooms. Four in the house and then the roof space.
Mrs Boyd would like you to arrange the people and the sheep so that there are 24 legs in each room. (You must have people and sheep in the room)
(Think: How many legs do people have? How many legs do sheep have?)
There are 5 different answers to this problem, so make sure you don’t repeat any. Cut and stick the sheep and people into the rooms, or if you don’t have glue or scissors, maybe you could draw them in instead.J
Topic (WAU) – Introduction to Neolithic Life
Today we are going to move from The Mesolithic way of living in The Middle Stone Age to The Neolithic Era which was The New Stone Age. The Neolithic (or 'New Stone Age') is a term used for the period in our past when people moved from being hunter-gatherers to a farming lifestyle. They started to plant and grow things for themselves. It was also the time when pottery was first used, and in many places people also began to live in permanent homes rather than moving around.
Have a look at the coloured page in your pack with information on Life in the Neolithic Era and then complete your worksheets for today.
Well done for completing Wednesday’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
