Wednesday 3rd March
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 u/o/ou/oo. 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.
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 revise all of this week’s calendar work for tomorrow.
Literacy- Water Research Task!
For Literacy today, I’d like you to do some research on Water. I have given you two option in your pack. You only have to do one, or you can do both if you REALLY want to.
Option 1: Access MySchool using the link below and log in using your computer log-in details which are on the cover page of your pack for this week.
Click on My Links - C2K Newsdesk - Click on the purple box that says “Go to Newsdesk.”
Click on Factfiles and the Factfile about Water which looks like the picture to the right.
Use the article to research and find five interesting facts about water. Try to find facts which you think other people will find interesting to read. Write these 5 facts in your own words on your page and then choose the best, most interesting fact to write on your water drop in your pack! You could maybe use handwriting pen and colour the background light blue.
Extension: Can you leave a comment on the article?
Scroll to the bottom of the article and click on Send a Comment. Remember your name and school name will appear so check your spelling and make sure your comment is appropriate.
Option 2: You used to use the Northern Ireland Water website which was super for finding out lots of interesting facts, but unfortunately it uses flash and no longer works for us. So…how about watching the following video or using the web links below to find 5 interesting facts about Water!
Write these 5 facts in your own words on your page and then choose the best, most interesting fact to write on your water drop in your pack! You could maybe use handwriting pen and colour the background light blue.
Numeracy – Even more dividing (6,7,8 and 9 facts)
EVEN more dividing today focussing on the 6,7,8 and 9 dividing facts. I know these are the ones you find the trickiest, so make sure to spend some time revising these so that you know them REALLY well for our work next week.
Why don’t you practise some of your division today by playing these Kahoots!
Topic (WAU) – The Water Cycle Game
Today, we’re going to look again at The Water Cycle and play a game. You will need a dice to play this game, but if you don’t have one, click on the link below for an online dice that will help.
Check SEESAW where Mrs Boyd will explain how to play the game. Basically you are a little droplet of water that journeys through the water cycle getting up to lots of mischief. You may have a very boring journey where you stay in the ocean for a while or you maybe end up in lots of different places.
Make sure you stick this finished page into your topic book as you may need it in a few weeks to help with another water related activity.
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
