Friday 3rd December

Maths

Today we will be adding a 2 digit and 1 digit number  crossing 10

This is a follow up to the work carried out over the week, just follow the powerpoint: 

Please post any work on classodjos and finish off any other work you may have missed over the week.

English:

Today you will use the prefix un- to change the meaning of a verb or adjective.

Show this list of words and ask children to share what they notice about them.

Kind                 Unkind

Helpful            Unhelpful

Clear                Unclear

Cover               Uncover

Lucky               Unlucky

Read words on the same line. What do they mean? Do they mean the same thing?

Un- is a prefix and we can add this to the beginning of a word to change the meaning.

 Fill in sheet by writing word including un- prefix and drawing a picture to represent what the word means now. Challenge – think of your own word.

How many more words containing the un- prefix can you think of ? List some and put them onto class dojos.

 

Find time to share books today and do some exercise, you can always follow the 5 alive videos again from over the course of the week.

Please scroll down to catch up on any work you may have missed. All Squirrels should be back in school on Monday so this will not be updated unless more cases occur and we have to return to the online learning. Individuals will be contacted over dojos.

Maths:

 

Please follow the link to the video here: https://vimeo.com/465863014 A powerpoint of the video with the teaching points can be seen:  Please find the worksheet to write on related to the video here: , this is a display copy:  and a powerpoint version if required: . Answer sheet for parents to check work: 

Can you answer and explain this true or false question: 

 

Today you will be using question marks

Stubby story - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSac6JwiXt0&t=4s

Little hen story - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d42WPspKvL0&t=494s

Ask children to talk about how Stubby and the Little Hen might have felt to be involved in the war. Did they feel scared? Did they feel safe? How did they feel when the war ended?

Share ideas with the class.

Explain that some things we could have a guess at but others things we don’t know exactly how they would feel.

Ask children to share ideas and take examples.

First questions for Stubby: Demonstrate how to write a question. Question mark and starting with What, Who, Where, Why, When or How.

Ask children, if we could go and see Stubby or the little Hen what would you ask them?

Now write questions for Stubby first and then for Little Hen. They could write these questions under a picture of each character.

Can you role play with your parent answering the questions.

 Find time to read today.

PSHE

Look at PowerPoint on bullying, teasing and friendly joking. Read the explanations of these types of behaviour and ask children to suggest examples of each kind. Explain to the children that they are not to name other children in the class when thinking of examples of these types of behaviour. Place ‘bullying’, ‘teasing’ and ‘friendly joking’ . Discuss each one and give reasons why it is this.  

Watch Topsy and Tim bullying video-  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhH9NCtaZt8 

What did Topsy and Tim do to help stop the bullying? Discuss what we can do if we see someone teasing or being unkind to someone else. Make children aware that we all fall out from time to time, bullying is if this continues and someone keeps doing this type of unkind behaviour.

Year 1- Children to think of an example of teasing, friendly joking and bullying. Children to draw a picture for each one or write a sentence for each one.  

Year 2- Children to think of an example of teasing, friendly joking and bullying. Children to write a sentence for each one and write what they can do to prevent / stop it happening.

 

 

Wednesday 1st December

Have you opened your advent calendar? First day on the countdown to Christmas today, fantastic!! (Remember scroll down for work you may have missed)

Maths:

Today we will be adding by making 10

Please follow the link to the video here: https://vimeo.com/464197249 A powerpoint of the video with the teaching points can be seen:  Please find the worksheet to write on related to the video here: , this is a display copy:  and a powerpoint version if required: . Answer sheet for parents to check work: 

Can you answer and explain this true or false question: 

 English

To write a descriptive paragraph

Look back at the words you used yesterday when describing the surroundings in the trench. Today we are going to be using those words to write a paragraph describing your animals experience in the trenches.

Example: One morning Monty woke up. He looked around and saw the muddy walls of the trenches. There were soldiers wearing helmets and dirty uniforms. They were all sitting around a fire cooking breakfast. Monty could hear the soldiers laughing and talking. He could smell breakfast and was very excited because his tummy was starting to rumble.

Make sure you write about one sense at a time, to break it down.

Try  to use ‘and’ and ‘because’, like in the last sentence in the example. Practice each sentence aloud before trying to write it down and deal with one sense at a time - see, hear, smell, feel, taste.

Year 1 write a few  simple sentences (e.g. Monty wok up and saw… He could smell… He could hear…).

Now check your capital letters and full stops before you take a photo and send it in!!

Phonics:

Year 2 Time for some revision - revise the phase 5 sounds through the Buried Treasure game, Year 1 use phase 3 words and revise: https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/5/buried-treasure

 

Make sure you do some more reading today, have you got a favourite book you love to share with a grown up? Find time to share a book today.

 

Today is the start of advent, usually we would have a school assembly about this event in the Christian Calendar. Take time to watch and think about this video which explains advent and how Christians get ready for Christmas, not just by using an advent calendar! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PH1ZrBy1NX4

 

Squirrels in school will be doing PE today, have a go at a five a day video if you get a chance, I've found the diamond jubilee dance version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBTvnJpwcKw&list=PLUwCWCCnnaKDi_SkmTQzOXMCK0M69eNLM&index=1  your parent may need to be your partner, will they have a go??

 Tuesday 30th November

Once again please scroll down to catch up on any work your child may have missed and do send some in to school through classdojos, we love to see what you have managed.

Maths:

Today we will be adding and subtracting tens.

Please follow the link to the video here: https://vimeo.com/464237963 A powerpoint of the video with the teaching points can be seen:  Please find the worksheet to write on related to the video here: , this is a display copy:  and a powerpoint version if required: . Answer sheet for parents to check work: 

Can you answer and explain this true or false question: 

English:

Today you will be using commas to create a list.

Read the first 2 pages in the book 'The Little Hen and the Great War', up to 1:49 in the video.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d42WPspKvL0&t=494s

Talk about the 5 senses.

What can the little hen hear?

What can the little hen smell?

What can the little hen see?

What can the little hen taste?

What can the little hen feel?

Then look at the trenches pages in the book, between 5:17 – 6:58 in the film. Ask the same questions about Bertha? Use their knowledge of trenches to help them.

Remember your animal from yesterday. Imagine your animal had been taken to the war and was in the trenches with you.

What would they have seen, heard, smelt, tasted and touched?

 Fill your page with a list of words that describe the senses see, hear, and smell. Remember to use commas when creating a list.

For example: In hear – explosions, bombs, whistles, shouting. Laughing

In see – mud, soldiers, fires, uniforms, helmets.

Take a photo of your lists and put them on classdojo for use to see.

Challenge: Write a sentence about what the animal might taste or feel. 

Phonics:

Year 2 Time for some revision - revise the phase 5 sounds through the Picnic on Pluto game, Year 1 use phase 3 words and revise: https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/5/picnic-on-pluto

Make sure you do some more reading today, have you got a favourite book you love to share with a grown up? Find time to share a book today.

History:

Today you will find out what 'truce' means and explain what happened on 25.12.14 and why the war stopped and started again.

 The key question today is: Why did war stop on Christmas Day 1914? Follow the link:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/assemblies-ks1-ks2-christmas-truce-1914/zhjpm39 and watch the clip: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p023r9fs.

Talk about what you have learnt. Have you ever fallen out with someone? How did you make up again? What is a truce? Have you heard this word before? Explain its meaning. 

Imagine you were there on that Christmas Day what would you tell your parents and friends if you wrote a letter to them afterwards? With your adult note down some key words to help you with this then try writing a letter home telling them about what happened on that special Christmas Day, remember you were there so........

How did you feel? What did you hear? What did you see first? What did you do? Who did you say hello to? What was the game like? Did you sing together, how did that feel? How did the truce end? What do you wish for now?

Here's an idea to start:

Dear Mum and Dad,

You won't believe what happened here today, I can hardly believe it myself! It all started when......

Monday 29th November

If you're child is up to it even though isolating, please find activities linked to what's being done in class here, scrolling down will give you last Thursday's and Friday's work as well.

English:

To describe an animal using adjectives.

Link to our learning in History – We looked at different animals in the war and what jobs they had https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/28604874 

Ask children, if you were a soldier in World War 1, what animal would you bring to the war? 

Draw the animal you would take to war. Do they have a jacket like stubby? Do they have medals? Perhaps give them a name.

Describe what your animal looks like -

 Year 2: Write down adjectives to describe the animal. Use these to write sentences about the animal.

Use the 3 adjectives, comma and ‘and’ structure, e.g Monty’s fur is brown, soft and fluffy.

Year 1 – Write down adjectives to describe the animal.

Use a simple sentence structure to write about the animal. His fur is brown and fluffy.

Check Capital letters and full stops.

Read your sentences to someone and then show them the picture of your animal. Did they think your animal would look like that? What could you have added to your description? Remember, they have to be helpful just like stubby and the little hen.

Please take a photo of your work and add it to classdojo, we'd love to see what animal you chose.

Maths

This afternoon in class we will be working on our poppy badge project, where we are aiming to design and make a poppy badge by the end of term.

Today we are looking at different types of poppy badges. if you have any around the house get them together to look at otherwise there are plenty of images of poppy badges on google images: https://www.google.com/search?q=poppy+badges&rlz=1C1GCEV_enGB901GB901&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&sqi=2&ved=2ahUKEwiYvrf4sb30AhXPK80KHbfWBnYQ_AUoAnoECAEQBA&biw=1366&bih=600&dpr=1

What similarities/differences do you notice between them? Can you list these for me to see.

We are going to make a poppy badge using material. If you have a spare paper poppy can you pull it apart and say how it has been put together. Follow the rest of the task using this explanation sheet:

This week we have been reading and considering the book 'The Little Hen and the Great War' It can be watched and heard here of you haven't already read it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d42WPspKvL0&t=494s

Last week we studied the book ‘Stubby’. Today it is all about sharing your opinions about which story you preferred.

Ask children what they remember from both books (Stubby and Bertha).

What is similar about the books? What is different?

Give children time to really explore those ideas. Talk to them: Which book did you prefer? Why?

Write down your opinions. Remember to explain why they enjoyed one book more than the other.

They could then draw a picture of the book they preferred.

Below is what was set for Thursday if you haven't managed it yet, please have a go before tackling Friday's work.

 

Thursday 25th November 2021

Maths:-

We are thinking about 'related facts' today. Take this quiz then watch the video to help develop your understanding https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zkd98xs

After you have completed that, see if you can help Mrs Williams find the correct related facts for these.

7 + 4= 11 - what other related facts can you work out from this? Remember to think about addition and subtraction!

What about 12 + 5 =17- what other related facts can you work out?

Now think of a number sentence of your own and show me what you have learnt today about related facts. 

Phonics:-

This is a lesson to revisit the 'ue' digrpah. Have a go at the buried treasure game on the phase 5 'ue' digraph at https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/2/buried-treasure 

After you have finished that, see how many words you can find with the 'ue' digraph in the postcard. 

You can print it off and highlight the words and even add sound buttons in if you are feeling extra clever or you can write a list of ue words on a piece of paper.

PHSE (Personal, Health and Social Education:-

Watch this short video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNOnFsnjYhY&t=146s (rewind if it starts at the credits).

You may want to watch it a couple of times. Ask the children when it has finished what happened in it?

What can we learn from this video?  Today we are going to learn about ‘respect.’ What does respect mean? Talk about the word ‘disrespectful’ and what this also means.  

Can the children think of ways we show respect to each other? To the environment? Etc 

Year 1-  Children to cut out images on sheet and sort into ‘respecting others’ and ‘not showing respect.’  

Year 2-  Children to think of two goals for the next couple of weeks that they would like to achieve to help them be more respectful. This could be things they will do in school, at home or towards family members or friends. 

Please also take time to read and if you would like to share another story you have done in school 'Stubby' by Michael Foreman for a storytime (you will need this for tomorrow's English Lesson), please follow the link:
