Thursday’s Learning Suggestion – Plastic Bottle Bird Feeder

Good Morning everybody,
 
The beautiful sunshine has been smiling at us this week, and after spending lots of time outdoors, I thought you might like to create a bird feeder. This will give you something wonderful to watch, as you look out of your window, or eat your lunch in the garden.
 
This bird feeder is very simple to create, and requires few materials. It also allows us to do some recycling: using any plastic bottles that are around the home. 
 
 
Here is the link to the video, which explains how to make the feeder, and exactly what you need. 
 
I have also included a written document, as you may find this easier to follow. 
 
 
Send us pictures of your bird feeders, and see if you can capture any birds in action. 
 
Have a wonderful day,
 
See you at story time 😄

Who’s Poo? A Suggestion for Learning. Monday 25th of May

The weather is looking fine and many of you will be out in the garden. You may be able to see signs of wildlife where you live. One clue that something is living nearby is that itt might leave poo.All animals need food and water. All animals move and breathe. All animals excrete. That’s a cool science word for poo and wee.

Take a look at these fantastic links and take a closer look at poo. We can learn so much.

https://www.rspb.org.uk/fun-and-learning/for-families/big-wild-sleepout/whose-poo/

https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/wildlife/how-identify/identify-poo

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/watch/the-lets-go-club-whose-poo-is-this?collection=the-lets-go-club-animal-fun
And a few you will not find in your back garden.

If you are interested then think about the language used to group and classify animals.
Can you find out what each of these words mean?
Omnivore
Herbivore
Carnivore
On the Plop Trump cards there is are symbols in the top corner( a leaf and a steak)
What do they mean?

Find out about the diet of an animal that interests you. The Dung Beetle really fascinates me.

Keep your eyes open for any evidence of wildlife when you are out and about.
Look. Don’t touch

Use your phonics to read the Plop Trump cards.
The photos are not to scale-look carefully at measurements. I suggest that you look at a ruler to check just how big the elephant poo is!

Happy Learning

Friday 1st May

Good morning Adventurers,

Is Friday and the start of a new Month. We can’t believe it is May already!

Today’s suggestive activities are as follows…

English 

You’ve all created some wonderful superheroes and ideas for your comic, great work!
I really enjoyed turning my storyboard into a comic story: ‘Silver Moon Shadow saves the night! Why don’t you give it a go? Remember to include: sound effects, colourful pictures, speech bubbles and your motto – all the features of a good comic story.
I can’t wait to see your work!
You might like to make a superhero family using a simple aeroplane design then fly them together.

 

Maths  

I would like you to make a maths game to play with your family members.
You can make up your own game or I have uploaded some templates in which you could use.
Can you write some addition and subtraction questions for your family to answer and think of some rules for the game?

There are some nice ideas on this website and I have added some ideas above too to help you.

https://garyhall.org.uk/make-maths-board-games.html 

I hope you have fun doing this!

 

Science

Recently in science, you have been identify and sorting materials based on their properties.
Today, I would like to move onto states of matter. There are 3 states of matter – solid, liquid and gas.
Watch this clip about them and then learn about how we can change the states of matter by either heating or cooling.
There is a sorting activity for you to have a go at then at little investigation you do with an adult it you wish.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z6j2mfr 

More information about these activities is on tapestry. Mrs Roe will also be uploading a story to tapestry this afternoon so keep an eye out for that.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend. I (Mrs Burton), plan on getting out on a nice long walk with my children and my dog, Ozzy but I think we might need our waterproofs on!

THursday 30th April

Good morning Adventurers! We hope you are all ok. Don’t forget to send us your videos/photographs/messages for our hello video – it will be lovely to see you all your smiling faces! We have planned the following activities for you – we hope you enjoy doing them! 

English 

Are you ready to plan your story?
Today we are going to use a storyboard to draw and write the main events of our stories.
Think about the opening, build-up, problem, resolution and ending. All the stages for a super story!
I’ve loved seeing all your superhero work so far, well done!👍
Good luck with your storyboards and enjoy your day. 

Maths

Today Adventurers, I thought we would have a go at some word problems involving addition and subtraction. There are some questions if you head on over to tapestry. 

Read the questions carefully and decide which operation you need to and then write the number sentence and the answers.

There is a sheet for the year 2 pupils and one for the year 3 pupils.

French 

It’s that time of the week again – French Thursday! Last week I asked you to design a rainbow and label the colours in French.

This week, we will continue working on colours. I have added a sheet that will help you to identify the colours and support your pronunciation when saying the out loud. There is then a sheet with some colour names that have been jumbled up – can you figure out what each colour is? Don’t worry about printing the sheet off – you can just write the answers down on a piece of paper.

 

As always, there is more information on Tapestry and if you are doing your own work, that is great too. 

We hope you have a lovely day.

Wednesday 29th May

Good morning Adventurers! It is  a bit chillier today but at least it isn’t raining yet. Hopefully you can get out in the garden or for a walk this morning before the rain comes this afternoon. 

Engish

Imagine you are the superhero! What do you wear?
Today can you draw yourself in a picture and then imagine yourself in your superhero costume ready to save the world?
Then I would like you to write a character description for your superhero. Remember to use some noun phrases, interesting adjectives, alliteration and similes to really help bring your character to life.
I look forward to seeing your superheroes.
Enjoy your day!
Mrs Roe

Maths 

Today Adventurers, I would like you to continue playing in your toy shops but instead of adding together items to get a total, I would like you to start giving change. Chose 1 item to buy and work how much change you would get (choose the amount you want to give change from 10p, 20p, 50p, £1, £2 and so on if you wish).

Giving change can be a really tricky concept to get at first so playing lots of games can really help you to grasp it. I have found some online games for the children that prefer to use a computer

https://www.teachingcave.com/numeracy/ks1/money/ 

Start with a smaller amount that you feel comfortable with at first and then work you way up to a higher amount once you feel more comfortable. Remember, using pretend/real money can really help your understanding so if you can, use this as a tool.
Extension – buy two items and figure out how much change you would get from your chosen amount.

I would love to see any number sentences you have written to show the questions you have answered. Remember, you can always use one of your subtraction written methods if you are get stuck.

Music 

I thought it would be a fun activity to do some singing today Adventurers. It really makes me smile when we all sing together at school so I hope you enjoy this activity!

Remember to warm up your voices before you start – this helps our body and voice to prepare for singing and protects our vocal chords. There is a nice warm up video on this BBC bitesize clip

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zr4nscw 

Below the warm up video, there are several fun activities. You can chose a song to sing along to on the game play it and edit the songs using musical instruments or on activity 2, you can make up dance routines to a song, Or alternatively, you could chose one of your own songs to learn (you can search the lyrics to songs online – ask an adult to help you with this) and make up your own dance routine.

 

As always, there is more information about these activities on Tapestry. We hope you have lots of fun doing these activities and would love to see any work that you have done, whether it is what we have set or other things you have been doing.

Tuesday 28th April

Good morning Adventurers! We hope you had a lovely day yesterday, Here are a few activities if you would like to have a go at them. There is more information about them over on tapestry.

English 

Would you like the power to fly, take off from your chair anytime you wanted? Wow!
Today’s task is to think about the amazing powers your superhero has and to write a paragraph explaining them. Also think about what motto they might have to express their goals and ideas.
What superhero sound effects can you use to bring them to life? Use onomatopoeia to help produce different sounds.

Even if you don’t have superhero powers yet we are still capable of extraordinary things. Whether it is amazing acts of kindness, unstoppable determination, helping others or just passing a smile to someone else.
Be a superhero!

Maths:

Today for your Maths activity Adventurers, I would like you to set up a toy shop with your favourite toys and make them some price tags. If you have a toy till or a money box with lots of change in, this would be great to use in your toy shop.

Look at the different coins we use. Can you order them in terms of their value?

I would then like you to chose 2 items (or 3 if you want to challenge yourself) to buy from your shop. Add the amounts together and think of the different ways you could pay for the items. Which way uses the least coins? Write down another way of making that amount.

Repeat this activity or you could ask a family member to come and buy some things from your shop and you have to work out the total amount they have spent (don’t worry about giving change, we will come to that tomorrow).

This interactive toy shop game is also a fun way of making different amounts. Click the mixed coins version and chose your amount you would like to add up to.

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/money/toy-shop-money 

 

Science 

Today Adventurers, I would like us to continue exploring materials and their properties (what they look like).
Before you start the activity, I would like you to use a dictionary (or an online one) to find the meaning of the following words that can be used to describe the properties of some materials:
transparent
flexible
absorbent
rigid

Can you think of any materials that have those properties?

I would like you to choose 4 things in your house and say what material they are made of, describe their properties and then tell me what you think that the item is made out of that material.
For example, a window is made of glass because it is transparent and you can see through it.

 

We hope you have a lovely day.

Adventurers activities – Monday 27th April

Good morning Adventurers. It is Monday! We hope you have had a lovely weekend relaxing and playing in the sun. 

Today’s activities are as follows if you wish to have a go at them.

English: 

This week in English I would you like to make your own super hero. Give them a name, decide what you would like their powers to be and how they use them to make the world a better place.
Later this week you can write a story, featuring your super hero, in the style of a comic. 🦸‍♀️ 🦸‍♂️
Today your task is to make your super hero, give them a name and design a logo to recognise them by.
My super hero is called Silver Moon Shadow and I’ve made her by adding features to a simple paper aeroplane design.
The logo is a silhouette of an owl flying in front of the moon.

I look forward to seeing your super heroes. You can even get them to fly!
Mrs Roe

 

Maths:

Today for your maths activity, I would like you to do some target addition.
I have drawn some 2 digit numbers on my wall outside with chalk or you could write some on paper and stick them up (you can extend this by adding some 3-digit number in).
I would then like you to either throw a ball to hit the targets or use a nerf gun if you have one.
Once you have hit 2 targets, try to add the numbers together mentally or estimate the answer then use a written method to check these answers.
Hope you have fun doing this!

 

Geography:

Last week, I asked you to make some observations about human and physical features around your house.
Today, I would like you to learn about the 7 continents and 5 oceans.
I have attached a map of the world to help you with this and a video of my little girl Emily, singing the continents song – this has really helped her to learn them so I hope it helps you too!

Then can you use what you have found out/do a bit of research to answer these questions?
Where is the Artic and Antarctica located on Earth?
Which is the largest ocean?
Which is the biggest continent?
Which continents does the equator run through?
Which continent is Great Britain in?

You could then choose a continent to do some research about if you wish 🌍

 

There is more information about each of these activities and a little key skills activity over on tapestry.

 

We hope you have a lovey day and looking forward to seeing what you have done.

Adventurers – Friday 24th April

Good morning Adventurers! It is almost the weekend and it looks as though it is going to be another sunny day! 

I have planned a few activities today if you would like to do them – I would love to see them if you do.

Maths Activity

Today for your Maths, I thought it would be fun to do a bit of problem solving. The problem is based around data handling and recording information.
Earlier in the week, I asked you to collect some information using tally charts. This problem requires you to use that skill (and a few others!)

Have a look and the problem and have a go…

https://nrich.maths.org/7522&part= 

Let me know how you get on!

 

Art activity

The images from the video we have been using in English have been absolutely beautiful! I would really like to see if you can create a piece of art based on the video.

 My favourite flowers in the video are when they stand out really bright and vibrantly in front of the black background (if you follow the link of the video and scroll down, you can see pictures of these below the video). 

What are your favourite flowers in the video? Or do you have a favourite flower in your garden or one that you see when out walking? If so, take a photograph and use that.

English activity:

For your English, I would like you to continue to follow the plans you have made for the story and finish it. Remember to use those paragraphs to show the beginning, middle and end of the story. 

 

I hope you have a lovely weekend and have a rest. I would love to know about any walks you have been on, games you have been playing or activities you have been doing. Hope you have fun!

Mrs Burton
