Over the next 2 weeks in English we are going to look at non-fiction texts or information texts. This is a topic we have done before but this time we are going to be basing our information texts on The Victorians.
This week in SPaG we are continuing our work on the conjunctions and but and or. Below you will find a PowerPoint presentation which you can look through. It has questions and answers on. You could use this to build up your understanding of how these conjunctions are used to join two parts of a sentence together. You will also find a worksheet. You do not need to complete all 3 worksheets. Choose your level of difficulty.
The red star with a D (for developing) = easiest
The blue start with an E (for expected) = medium
The orange star with a GD (for greater depth) = hardest
This week, we are going to start learning a bit more about Addition and Subtraction. For each day there is a worksheet which has 3 different levels - Easy (Page 2), Medium (Page 3) and Hard (Page 4). Please use the sheet which you feel best suits your child. In the Challenge box, there is an additional sheet for each day which is more about problems solving and explaining your thinking. Feel free to use this if and when you like!
This week, we are going to continue looking at materials. This week we are going to carry out an investigation to help Teddy decide on the best material to use to make an umbrella.
The stars at the top of the sheet show the level (1 star - easy, 2 stars - medium, 3 stars - hard)
Last week in Topic we learnt about Victorian inventions. This week we are learning about Victorian toys. Can you see any toys that you still play with today? For the activity, you are going to choose 3 of the Victorian toys that you would play with, draw a picture of it, and give your reasons why you chose them. There is a worksheet for you to print and do this on, or you can do it on a piece of paper. There are also two documents which have games on that they played in Victorian times. If you decide to play any of them, take photos and send them to us.
For this week's RE lesson we want you to identify ways in which people do not care for our world. Firstly watch the video clip below from the Disney Pixar film 'Wall-e'.
Now we would like you to complete the worksheet which you can find below. It looks at ways in which our planet is mistreated and asks you to think about how this makes you feel and how you think God would feel about humans damaging his creation.
If you want to you could also think about ways in which we can help to protect our planet and God's creation- there is already a challenge question on your sheet so this would be an additional challenge if you wanted to give it some thought.
We are continuing to look at the work of L.S. Lowry.
Over the next few weeks, we are going to create a collage in the style of Lowry, adding a new part each week. This week we are going to create the people.
Ask your child these questions:
Watch the video below all about diseases, how they spread, and how we can help to stop the spread. You can then create a poster as detailed in the video. You can either draw it on a blank piece of paper, design it on the computer, or there is a worksheet with a border below if you would like to print that out. We would love to see your posters, so please email them to us!
It's important to try and stay fit and healthy, especially when the weather isn't very nice and we can't go outside!
Mrs Gordon thought it would be lovely if you could practise a song while you were at home with your family. You could even teach it to the rest of them - some of you are amazing at dancing too and you could make up a routine to go with it. Our song is in the link below.
I know how much some of you like singing and dancing so you could always record yourself singing and dancing to your favourite song and send it to us - we'd really like to see them!
We would like you to start the first at home. It is lots of fun and you can get more and more creative as you work your way through the lessons at home. Don't worry though it starts off very simple!
