Half Term

And so, half term is upon us!  Next week Mrs Grady and I will be cleaning your classroom and getting it ready for when you return - whenever that may be.  It will look a little different when you come back as we have to make more space.

In the meantime have a lovely half term holiday.  Next week is the Jewish festival of kindness, so remember to be EXTRA kind to your mums and dads and siblings!

 

Week 6
Friday May 21st

Reading

Take a look at the Active Primary Website. It is another lovely way for the children to engage in reading. You should select Bug Club and then Independent. There are loads of reading books appropriate for your child. Start with phase 5 but if too tricky go to phase 3 or 4.

Activity: If you still have all the boats you made this term gather them together and place them in some water (make sure a grown up is with you). Use Lego figures or other small plastic figures to place boats and see which stays afloat. 

 

 

It's nearly the end of term – Ms Shepherd tomorrow. We are so proud of how hard you have been working well done! The pictures and emails you have sent us have been wonderful and I am excited to see what fantastic things you will do this week.  

 

Be happy, be good and be safe. Lots of love Mrs Grady xx

Maths (Monday 18th May)

Reading

Reading is so important so please read for 15 minutes every day.

Tell someone in your house about the book you have read. This could be a picture book that you know or it could be a new book that you try to read independently to yourself. You could read to your favourite teddy or toy. You could also listen to a free audio story or look at a story online.

 

Don’t forget to look at the reading resources on Active Learn website.

Phonics

Have a go at playing DJ Cow's word finder. Find the words to see DJ Cow do his disco thing! Can you sound out and blend the words as you find them?

 

Science

Plants are made up of lots of different parts and today you will be finding out about the different parts.  Look through the information on the slides below which show you a variety of plants.

Have a go at one of the activities (or both if you like!)

 

Activity:

Complete the drawings of a tree and a small flowering plant by drawing what the roots would look like under the soil. Then write a description to describe the roots in each plant.  

 

Activity:

Cut out the parts and stick them onto the sheet to make a flower. Can you label the parts?

Music

Have a go at one of the activities (or both if you like!)

 

Activity: Last week Suki and Nigel reached the Golden Island and found their way to a cave which magically opened. In today’s final part Nigel and Suki enter the cave and inside they find a treasure chest...and a skull and crossbones! The song we are singing is ‘When I was one, I sucked my thumb’

Activity: Have some fun making some noise, with BBC Bring the Noise (link below)

Have a go at some of the activities – my children really enjoyed them!

 

Listen and Layer: This helps us hear the different layers of a song. Turn the different layers on and off to hear different parts and how the song changes.

 

Feel the Beat: A chance to join in with the song and feel the beat. You can clap along or play an instrument to the beat of the song and see when it gets faster and when it slows down. 

 

Make some noise: In this game, you can play different instruments and experiment with them.
