Daisy’s work

I received another lovely email this morning from Daisy. She has been doing lots of great work about rainforests and enjoys FaceTime with her Nanny to have some Maths lessons. I love hearing what everyone is up too!

Well done Daisy, keep up the hard work!

Topic/Literacy

If we were in school this half term, our Topic would have changed to Jungles and Rain forests. Twinkl have some great ideas and resources to support this topic! I have attached the Twinkl mind map of lesson ideas to refer to if you wish.

A nice idea for a Literacy lesson over a few days could be to research different jungle animals and make an information book/leaflet.

Lesson Ideas for Jungles

Maths

I have updated Education City and put lots more resources online for the children to access. Please also have a look at White Rose Maths online as this is what we follow in school and the children are familiar with it.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

Science

Our Science topic this term is Plants – I have set work on Education City. Also linked to our topic of Jungles and Rain forests, you could research animals that live in the jungle/rain forest. Think about where they live? What they eat? How they adapt to their surroundings? Etc.

Phonics

Alternative pronunciations for  ie and ea.

Examples of alternative ie = chief, field, thief, yield, shield, die, pie

Examples of alternative ea = head, deaf, ready, bread, heaven, sea, read, leaf

Also to practise reading and spelling the high frequency words thought, any, and saw (if the children were to sound these out to help with spelling then they could be spelt wrong, they need to recognise them from memory).

Art

You could draw your favourite Jungle animal and colour/paint it. Maybe make a collage of a jungle animal or get some chalk and draw one outside on the pavement. You could look at the fur of a jungle animal and draw/paint the pattern on the fur.

PE

PE with Joe Wicks every morning at 9am!

I hope this helps to give some ideas for home learning – take care and enjoy the sun!

Practise reading ‘again’ and ‘different’ and practise spelling the words one, make, here (high frequency words).

It’s great to see many of you have accessed Education City! I can see who has completed activities on here so will keep an eye on it to post more resources when needed. Please also visit White Rose Maths which is the scheme of learning we use in class

Literacy

Any reading or writing that can be completed during your time at home is extremely beneficial! Please read, read, read! When writing, please ensure you are remembering your basic writing skills – capital letters and full stops, neat (precursive) handwriting, adjectives, conjunctions and, but and because and always read your work back regularly to check that it makes sense.

Missing you all very much! Take care of yourselves.
