Wednesday 3rd June

Good Morning Everyone! If you aren't returning to school today, don't worry - you can find home learning here!

As always - please remember to just manage what you can and take things at your own pace. There is no expectation that you need to complete absolutely everything, everyday.

Get Active!

Join in with one of the usual workouts, or have a go at something different! Try this Get Set activity card and get dancing!

Writing - Plot Point 3

Well done for your fantastic work so far! Your stories are sounding fantastic. Today we will work on the next plot point.

The next part of the book reads as follows: 'One day, Erin came up with a very smelly plan to outsmart Archie's nose. Her mum was far too busy to notice Erin was on board. As the day got later, a fog appeared... which got thicker... and thicker... until Erin couldn't see past the end of her nose.

1. Read through your work so far and make sure you continue with a sentence that makes sense.

2. Use the 'inner thought' lens to write about Erin's great idea to get on the boat without being noticed. Perhaps you could use your imagination and come up with your own idea?

3. Use the 'feelings' lens to talk about how Erin felt when her plan was a success. You could use one of my suggested words (remember to look up the meaning before using new words): exhilarated, thrilled, over-joyed, excited.

4. Write a noticing sentence to describe how the fog appeared and what it was like.

Reception and Year 1

If you are in Reception or Year 1, try to write 3 simple sentences.

1. Tell us about Erin's idea.

2. Talk about how she felt (happy, excited, pleased)

3. Write about what happened with the fog.

Try to focus on simple sentences and don't over-complicate it! Remember that capital letter (bigger than the other letters) and full stop on the line at the end of each sentence.

Phonics/ Reading

Today for your reading activity, have a go at something different.

  • Have a look at the the picture to the right.
  • What can you see?
  • Can you use the FANTASTIC lenses to talk about elements of the picture -e.g. what might you be able to hear/ smell?
  • Do you have any questions about this picture?

Try to answer these questions:

  • Whose bedroom is this?
  • What can you tell about his personality and interests?
  • How old do you think the boy mouse is? Why?
  • Which fairy tale do you think they might be reading?
  • How long do you think they have been reading for?
  • Do they read every night before bed?

Spelling/ Phonics

Continue to use the resources discussed yesterday to work on Spellings and Phonics.

Maths - Year 1 and Reception

Have a go at the questions below.

Maths - Year 2

Have a go at the questions below.

Afternoon - Science

The science topic you would be working on in school is 'Animals including Humans'. The first focus within this unit is understanding that animals have offspring that grow into adults. We will learn about this concept through studying life cycles.

1. Begin by watching this quick video:

2. Spend some time finding out about the life cycle of one of the following (choose one you are not so familiar with):

  • A butterfly
  • A chicken
  • A newt
  • A dragonfly
  • A frog

3. Choose a way to represent this life cycle and each stage of it. You might like to create a mobile, a poster, a storyboard or some artwork to represent each stage. Try to explain how the animal changes as it grows. This could be verbally when talking with an adult, or you might like to write this to go with your representation.

Well-being/ Mindfulness

Every day we will give you a suggested mindfulness or well-being activity. This is just an idea and is optional.

Mrs Adams and Nelly have created a lovely video for you to enjoy! This is part one, and part two will follow on Friday!
