Friday 1st May 2020
I hope you have woken up feeling refreshed and ready for today’s learning. Today we start a new month, how has May come round so quick? We are now completing our fourth week of home learning and I want to remind you all that I am very proud of your hard work. You are all superstars!
Please continue to check the ‘Photos and videos of you and your work’ folder to see what your friends have been up to! There are lots of lovely pictures and videos.
Here is the link if you would like to start your day with Joe Wicks PE:
Here are some activities to complete today:
Phase 5 Acorn Adventures. You will need to log in to access this game. https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/
Then scroll down to ‘Phase 5b Interactive Resources - Weeks 5-7’ and find ‘Acorn Adventures’.
We are again going to focus on a letter having alternative pronunciations. I would like you to focus on the first row of letters: a, e, i, o, u. Read the word and decide how to pronounce the a, e, i, o, u, then drag the acorn to the tree that shows a word with the same pronunciation. Could you practise writing some of these words with alternative pronunciations?
Please continue to practise your ‘27.04.20 Spellings’ for our test on Monday.
Start each day with a page from the Flashbacks. They're saved in the ‘Maths’ Folder. Remember, this will consolidate what we have already learnt! You should be on Week 4 Day 5 today. Did you get 4/4 correct?
Warm up: Can you do 20 pushups?

Time for a break! Go Noodle- Wobbly Man
Yesterday, you imagined that you had been to the Moon and thought about what you could see and feel.
Don't lose your work from yesterday because you will be needing it next week.
Today we're going to look at some postcards. These were written by children who have visited the capital cities of the UK - they haven't been lucky enough to visit the Moon! Here is the PowerPoint:
Here are some questions to answer about their postcards:
Next week you will be writing your own postcard.
I'm sure you are ready for some lunch now!
Here is another video from Miss Day
She thought you might not know the finger spelling alphabet, but I'm sure that you will remember doing it during our ‘Marvellous Me’ topic during the Autumn term. Here's the alphabet with drawings of the hands to help you a little bit more:
Can you sign 'My name is...' and send it to me as a video clip?
We would normally have our special Learning for Life lessons on Fridays and I think these activities are definitely L4L skills.
Here’s one of our favourite songs which has sign language actions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnI_XRNpDq0
Yesterday you watched the first three minutes of Helen Sharman's new video. In the rest of the video, children ask her questions about life in Space and how this compares with being in isolation at home.
Watch the rest of the video, thinking about which of the questions were the most interesting and what you would like to know.
If you could ask Helen Sharman 3 questions what would they be?
Write them out in your best handwriting and remember to start with a capital letter and end with a question mark (?).
Try to use a different question word for each one.
How does Helen's video help us cope with isolation? Use bullet points to write a list of her tips.
Have a superb day and a lovely weekend!
I will speak to you again on Monday.
