Numbots
Miss King has been looking at how everyone in classes 3 and 4 have been getting on with the maths game Numbots.  There are some really impressive scores on here.  It looks as though most people are accessing this resource.  If you are able to access Numbots a 15-20minute screen time is recommended.  Where possible, children should be trying to complete these tasks independently and only getting help when they are really stuck.

11. 05. 2020
New Free Resource to support with English and Maths
Head Start Primary have just released Learning Activity books for Year’s 1 to 6. These online booklets provide Maths and English activities and come with an answer booklet.  We can’t show you the booklets here but, if you follow the link provided and type in your email address you will get immediate access. https://form.jotform.com/200982570122348

23. 04. 2020
The DfE have announced the launch of daily online phonics lessons starting on Monday 27 April. These could serve as an additional activity to complete each day to support your child's reading. Please see the letter below for more details. We would suggest that if your child is currently reading Phase 2 and 3 phonic reading books, that they revisit the Reception content while children reading Phase 4 and 5 books access the Year 1 Summer content.

Online Phonics Lessons from Letters and Sounds

20. 04. 2020
The Oak National Academy is a Government-backed collection of online lessons and resources that has been launched this week, and the BBC have also launched a programme of daily online lessons  on their Bitesize website.

While we will continue to provide daily tasks for the children to complete at home in line with what we would be covering in school, the lessons and resources available on both the Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize websites might be useful if you would like additional activities to complete or to revise previously taught concepts:

PSHE – Uncomfortable Feelings

In today’s session we will talk about the things that make us feel unhappy or cross and have ideas about what to do when we have these feelings. 

Reconnecting: Look together at the Big Questions. Then, using the ppt slides you will see that we experience a vast range of feelings. Look at the slides, can you identify the feelings that are shown?  Some feelings feel good when we experience them but others do not and this means they are uncomfortable feelings.  Which of the feelings shown might be uncomfortable.  Exploring uncomfortable feelings helps us learn to manage them in an appropriate way. 

Exploring - Feeling Unhappy and Cross: Look at the ppt and use it to understand that it is OK to sometimes feel unhappy or cross but it is important to know what to do when we are feeling that way.  What makes you feel unhappy or cross?  What strategies could you use if you feel unhappy or cross to help you manage these feelings? 

Consolidating – My Feelings Wheel: Complete the Feelings Wheel Activity Sheet.  Draw three things which make you feel unhappy or cross on the inside of the wheel, then draw things they could do to help manage their feelings and feel better in these situations on the outer edge of the wheel.

Grammar – Using ‘and’ to join ideas in our sentences.

Today in our literacy lesson, we are going to be practising using the connective ‘and’ to join our ideas in our sentences together. Knowing how and when to use ‘and’ is a very important skill to master.  We need to remember to not use the word ‘and’ at the start of our sentences and to only try and use it once within a sentence to make sure that our sentences do not get to long.

Go through the slides and try out the tasks on the PowerPoint to revise when this skill.  Then choose some tasks to try out from the activity booklet.  There are a range of tasks to try so even if you can’t print the tasks, you will be able to find something to try.

Class 3 Maths

Today we are going to return to using the language of greater than / more than / less than / fewer than / equal to, to compare two numbers within 50.

Activities:
1. Warm up by counting forwards and backwards to 100 in 1s starting from any given number. Time yourself – how far can you get in one minute when writing the numbers instead of just saying them?

2. Adults - the words ‘greater than / more than / less than / fewer than / equal to’ somewhere nice and obvious so that your child can keep referring back to them.
Work in a pair – each of you write a number between 0-100 without showing the other. Now look at the two numbers and compare them – who has the greater/bigger/smaller/lesser number or are they equal? Can you compare them in a sentence (X is greater than X / X is less than X etc)? Repeat several times. Now try where you can either represent the number in digits or as a pictorial representation using sticks and bricks. Say another sentence to compare them again.

3. Task sheet 1 – complete some practise of comparing representations of number by writing a sentence under each pair of numbers, using the mathematical language of comparison.

4. Task sheet 2 – This sheet works like our lesson review. Complete the questions to show that you know how to compare pairs of numbers.

Today we are going to design our own Pirate Treasure Maps! You might like to ‘age’ your paper first by ripping the edges or even staining the paper using tea!
Look through the powerpoint to see examples of treasure maps and look at the different features that often appear (clumps of trees; coves; rickety bridges; swamps etc). Then create your own map by:
- drawing an outline of the island to explore
- marking with an X where the treasure is hidden
- adding in features of the island (trees, swamps, caves, ruins etc)
- colouring everything in beautifully
- drawing a dotted line to show the pirates what route they must follow to find the treasure.

Class 3 Maths

Yesterday the children found counting backwards really tricky, so please can you continue to practise doing this on a daily basis (verbally and writing the numbers). Thank you.

Today we are going to think about how numbers are partitioned and in particular, how we can talk about a 2-digit number being made up on Tens and Ones. 

Activities:
1. Go through the powerpoint to revisit thinking about numbers according to their place value (their Tens and Ones).

2. When we have looked at the place value of numbers previously, the children have been confident at representing given numbers with drawings of ‘sticks and bricks’ (pictorial representations of Dienes equipment – rods of 10s and individual bricks for 1s). The have drawn a long rectangle with a 10 written on it to represent the 10 sticks, and small squares to represent the 1s.
Task sheet: Complete the sentences to describe the pictorial representations in their Tens and Ones (in words, then as a number sentence). Then read the numbers and draw the ‘sticks and bricks’ to partition the number into it’s Tens and Ones.
Can you add a number sentence under each representation you have drawn to show how the numbers add together to make the whole number?
eg. 60 + 4 = 64

3. Consolidate today’s work using one of the following Topmarks games that the children are familiar with from previous units:

Class 4 Maths – Fractions – Finding a quarter

In our maths lesson today, we will be continuing to learn about quarters.

Warm-up:  Tell someone what a half is and what a quarter is.  What do all the parts need to be? (equal)
Main Task: Work through the tasks on the PowerPoint.  As you are now familiar with splitting shapes in quarter you will now use pictorial representations to identify which shapes have been split correctly and which ones have incorrect quarter lines. You will also be able to use one quarter of a shape to match it to its other quarter to make complete shapes.

Worksheet Task:  Today you will sort the pictures under the correct headings.  You will then match the pictures to whether or not they are split in quarters.  Colour one quarter of the shapes.  If you cannot print then try out the activities on this website - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z3rbg82/articles/zq2yfrd

Challenge: Carry out an investigation to find different ways of representing a quarter on a 4x2 grid.

Writing

Today we are going to be retelling the story, Pirates Love Underpants.

Activities:
1. Use the Powerpoint to re-familiarise yourselves with the story.

2. Writing Task: Sequence the pictures from the sheet attached in your Home Learning Book and then use these to retell the story. All children should be able to write a sentence to describe each picture, using time adverbials to start their sentences (First, next, After that, Then, Finally etc). More confident children should be encouraged to write several sentences to describe each picture and use adjectives within their writing.
Don’t forget to check back after writing each sentence to make sure it is punctuated correctly with a capital letter and full stop, exclamation mark or question mark.

PSHE – Feelings

In today’s session we will recognise what we like and dislike.  We will also be thinking about the following questions. When do we feel happy?  What other good feelings do you feel? 

Reconnecting: Look at the Big Questions shown at the start of the PowerPoint slides. Then look at each picture in turn and decide if it makes them feel happy or sad. We all experience different feelings in certain situations and that however we are feeling, that is OK.  Sharing our feelings with someone we trust can help us manage our emotions.

Exploring - Read the information on the slides.  These slides explain that we feel happy when we are doing things we like or are with people we like. What makes you happy?  Using the ‘What Makes Me Happy?’ Activity Sheet circle all of the pictures which show something that you like and which makes you happy. We all like different things and it is important to be ourselves.

Exploring -Using the PowerPoint, look at different kinds of happiness - ranging from very excited to a more content feeling of happiness. Both kinds of happiness are important in our lives. Using the PowerPoint, we can see that when we are struggling with uncomfortable feelings, we can think about these happy things and can attempt to think ourselves happy.  Use the ‘My Happy Picture’ Activity Sheet write your name in the middle. Then draw and colour pictures of things which make you happy. 

Reflecting – Think about what other feelings you experience which makes you feel good inside. Then, using the PowerPoint, share different feelings which make us feel good inside.  At times it might be hard to feel happy for lots of different reasons and that this is OK. There are things which can be done to help us feel happier.

Class 4 Maths – Fractions – Finding a quarter

In our maths lesson today, we are going to be moving on to find and name a quarter as one of four equal parts of an object, shape or quantity.

Warm-up:  To begin to understand what a quarter is watch the following clip - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryGvCNDoAR0&safe=true

Now you need a piece of A4 paper.  Can you fold the paper in to quarters?
How did you do this? Did you fold it in half and half again? How can you check if it’s a quarter or not? How many equal parts are there?
Main Task: Work through the introductory tasks on the PowerPoint.  Make sure you really understand what a quarter is.

Practical Task:  Today you will show how various pictorial representations can be split into quarters by cutting pictures. Record this in your books. Make sure that you understand that quarters is four equal parts and that a picture may have more than one way of being quartered.  If you can’t print the picture, draw around objects at home, cut out and make quarters this way.

Further Practice: For additional practice try the colour a quarter worksheet

Spellings – Adding –s or –es to the end of words

In our lesson today, we will be thinking about adding –s or –es to the end of words.  We do this to show that the word is plural, that there is more than one thing for example, 1 cat or 3 cats.  If a word ends in ‘ch’ or ‘sh’ we add –es to make the word plural.  Action words (verbs) can also have different endings depending on who is doing the action in the sentence.  If a person or thing is doing the action, we add an –s to the verb. Don’t add –s if the action is done by ‘I…’, ‘You…’, ‘They…’ or ‘We…’.

Work through the slides on the PowerPoint to help you understand how to add  –s and –es.

Complete one of the activities below.  You can complete all the tasks if you wish.

Activity 1: Use the secret code to help you write our focus words.

Activity 2: Practice your handwriting by writing out the words.

Activity 3: Have a go at the word search.
