Wednesday 3rd 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’. 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. Here are some games you can play today to practise your words this week:
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 6 for tomorrow from your table page.
Literacy- More Punctuation
Yesterday, we looked at punctuating single sentences. Today Red, Blue, Green and Yellow Groups are going to try and punctuate a passage and purple group single sentences.
Follow the modelled example on SEESAW before trying your work today and then use your workbook to write it out neatly, making sure your punctuation marks are clear. Perhaps you could skip a line between each line when writing it out so it’s clear to see when uploading to SEESAW.
You could also illustrate your work today.
After you’ve finished, which shouldn’t take you too long today, I’d like you to log into Studyladder and play some games on Punctuation in the Punctuation POD for about 10-15 minutes.
Numeracy - Formal Multiplication HTUxU
Nothing new today, just more practice of HTU x U. I know we know what to do, but this will help practise your tables too! There is a video below to recap how to do this, or check the modelled example by Mrs Boyd on SEESAW from yesterday. Remember if watching the video below that Mrs Boyd likes you to carry the number to the line.
You can spend some time before today, playing the KAHOOTS below to practise your tables. It is live online until 12 p.m. on Thursday so you have plenty of time to give it a go.
Remember to use your real name as your nickname so I know who you are.
Topic (WAU) –Neolithic Life Pottery
One final technology that the Neolithic settlers brought to Ireland was pottery. Enough fragments of Neolithic pots have been found in Ireland for it to be reasonably certain how they were made. They were usually made by coiling clay round and round to build up a simple pot shape. These were then smoothed down.
Some pots have been decorated by pressing stones, sticks or even fingers into the wet clay. The pot is then hardened by placing it in a hot fire. The pots were used for many things; as well as for storing food, a pot filled with a small amount of fat and set alight was a simple but effective lamp for the Neolithic farmers too.
Watch the video below which shows a man making a Neolithic Clay pot. If we were in school, we would have been making clay thumb pinch pots, however I couldn’t send you some clay home to do this unfortunately. Today, you can relax by decorating the clay pot on your worksheets and colouring the other one.
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
