Literacy 

Spelling Test (see Spelling List for this week's spellings).

Practise next weeks spellings using Look, Cover, Write Check. 

 

Then choose a picture stimulus from either the beach or farm scene.  Use this time to plan out what you would like to include in your writing.  Remember to use all the skills you have learned about describing a setting. 

Science

Find a range of different materials around the house ( Play dough, elastic band, plastic straw, metal spoon, sponge, wooden blocks, paper, fabric, rubber, glass, plastic boxes, etc). Use the observation sheet to see if what forces can be used on different materials. Discuss results  with a grown up and explore these questions.

  • Why is it good that all materials do not change shape when forces are exerted on them?
  • How does this make them suitable for a purpose?
  • Can you give an example? (e.g. a brick doesn’t squash so it is good for building).
  • Do all materials go back to their original shape after?
  • Do you notice anything interesting about the playdough?

Challenge : To make a rocket out of playdough by rolling a dice…

1-pinch                   2-twist

3-stretch              4-squash

5-bend                   6-roll

Give yourselves 2 minute to make the rocket. What does it look like?

Friday 4.12.20

 

Maths

Show and discuss the  PowerPoint to learn about fractions halves, quarters and a whole.

Use pre-cut shapes (rectangles, squares, circles)  to fold into halves and quarters to colour, label then glue into your books.

Challenge: Can you explain how you worked out the answers by writing a sentence using mathematical vocabulary? (Example: I know that this shape represents half because there are 2 equal parts in the shape and one of those parts are coloured).

 

Literacy

We are now practising to write letters in a cursive style. Look at the Cursive letter formation powerpoint and notice how each letter starts from the line. This will mean that you will probably be forming some letters in a completely new way.  

Practise forming the letters m, n and o in a cursive style. 

Complete 2 lines of correctly formed letters before moving to the next letter. 

Remember that  all of these letters should fill the lower half of the lines, with no ascenders or descenders needed.
