Good Morning Class 1/2A and Parents. smiley

 

I hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend break. Are you all ready to start another week great week?

I will be contacting your parents again this week to check in and to see how you are all getting on with your work. 

I'm sending a booklet on Safety in the home and also some ideas for games to play which we've been asked to share with you by Danny Herman from Pennine Sports. He thinks lots of parents will recognise some of the games from when they were young and might like to try them again with you!

Maths:

Click on the PowerPoint and focus on Lesson 1:

Children will explore events and situations related to time. They will use language such as: before, after, first, next, then and finally to describe, sort and order the events. It is important that children can identify things that come before and after a given event using the language morning, afternoon and evening. For example, things they do before school / after school and things they do in the morning / evening.
Ask questions such as:
Can you label / describe the events in order they take place using the words before / after or first / next / then?
What activities do you do in the morning / afternoon / evening?
What activities do you do before / after school?
Are there any activities you do in both the morning and evening?
Can you order the events? How do you know?
Can you draw a picture to show what could happen before / after?

Independent Maths Activities:

 

Practical – Sorting events
Sort the events into two groups indicating whether they events are done before or after school. Children should be challenged to provide reasoning for their answers.

 

 

 

Activity 1: Complete Worksheet – Before and after – Write the sentences using key vocabulary then stick events in order creating first, next, then, now sentences.

I thinks time for us to get moving with super movers. Let’s try level 2 today. When you are ready click on the video to play. https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/just-for-fun-match-of-the-Day-l2/zbnw382

 

 

English:

On Friday, we looked at Postcards. Blogs are a lot more detailed than postcards and they can be shared with lots of people at once.

Open up this PowerPoint again and click 'Play'. Today you'll need to focus on slides 7-9.

On slide 8, if you click on STOMP and then Beaver Fun Day these will take you to blogs that children have written. Enjoy reading and discussing their blogs together.

 

 

Have you read through the fantastic blogs. What made them interesting to read?

Tomorrow, you will be writing a blog, imagining that you have been to the Moon. You will be able to include everything that you have learnt about the Moon in your blog.

 

Are you all ready for some lunch!!!

 

Guided Reading

Your first task today is a short reading comprehension about Spring. I think we've been so lucky with the weather during our spring lock down, don't you?

You will see pictures of dogs next the questions. Can you remember their names? They help us recognise which reading skill we're using.

There's Rex Retriever, Sequencing Suki, Vocabulary Victor and Inference Iggy.

 

 

When you're reading, taking notice of the punctuation is so important. You'll all remember me reading pieces of work that didn't have full stops and capital letters and pretending to die! I hope you're using the punctuation when you're reading your reading books and taking breaths at the right time.

Try reading this text, and you'll see how tricky it is:

 

Spring is one of the four seasons it is the season that comes after winter spring starts in March and ends in June spring is the season when we change our clocks and put them forward one hour we often have a mixture of sunny and rainy days

 

Please write it out with the capital letters and full stops for each sentence.

 

Read it again and you'll see how important the punctuation is for reading.

 

RE:

In today’s lesson we are going to explore the Jewish, Christian and Islamic creation stories.

 

Lots of religions tell stories to explain how the world was created.

Explain that today you are going to be focusing on the creation story that Jews, Christians and Muslims believe. These three religions’ creation stories are very similar because they all came from the same place.

 

Read the simplified version of the creation story by clicking on the slides.

Discuss the story with your class. What did God create in this story? Have you heard the story before?

 

 

 

Activity Y1/2

Provide the children with worksheet 2B. The children will draw a picture to illustrate each section of the Christian creation story.

 

Extension Activity:

First draw pictures on each section of the wheel. Then cut out a segment from the wheel overlay and attach it to their illustrated wheel using a split pin. Then turn the wheel to reveal their illustrations as you retell the story.

 

 

 

Music:

It is through Music that you will be introduced to the special work that you will be doing this week linked to V.E. Day which will be celebrated on Friday with a bank holiday.

Victory in Europe Day celebrates the end of World War 2 which ended on the 8th May 1945 - 75 years ago.

 

Here are three songs which were sung during the war to keep the troops' spirits up. I think they'll help us, too. Try and sing along. Your parents and grandparents will recognise them, I'm sure.
