Good morning 1S!
I hope you have had a relaxing weekend. What have you been up to? I have caught up with a few friends on FaceTime and I have played Monopoly and some card games.
I emailed your parents last week and it was lovely to see more photos of what you have been doing. I want to remind you all that I am missing you very much. I am so proud of your resilience and hard work whilst working from home. I know it is very strange but you are all doing an amazing job!
Here is the link if you would like to start your day with Joe Wicks PE: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1
Here are some activities to complete today:
Please complete your spelling test. Use the spelling sheet that is labelled 'Test Date Monday 4th May 2020' in the ‘Spellings’ folder. Maybe an older sibling could test you? Once you have done this, please practise your letter formation.
Have a look at next week's spellings, these are saved in the 'Spellings' folder as ‘Spellings 04.05.20’.
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 second row of letters: ow, ie, ea, er, ou. Read the word and decide how to pronounce the ow, ie, ea, er, ou 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?
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 5 Day 1 today. Did you get 4/4 correct? There is also a Flashback at the start of your learning video, you can complete this too.
Warm up: Can you count in 10s up to 200?

Here is a problem to finish with:
Think about the postcards that you read on Friday. Your task is to write a postcard to your grandparents, imagining that you have been to the moon. Think back to everything that you have learnt about the moon.
If you can, print out the ‘Postcard from the Moon’ template. You can fold the sheet in half and then draw a picture on the front and write on the back. If you don’t have a printer, just write your postcard on normal paper.
I'm sure you are ready for some lunch now!
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 to 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. 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.
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. The Jews, Christians and Muslims all have very similar creation stories.
Read through the slides on the pdf document below and then draw pictures to illustrate the remaining sections of the creation story.
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.
Have a fabulous day!
