Happy Wednesday everyone! We are nearly there!!!!!
Phonics: Today’s new sounds is ‘ure’ – sure it’s pure.
Literacy: LO: As a writer, I will be able to choose when and where my story takes place.
Read page 60 from ‘How to write a story’ by Simon Cheshire about settings.
Look at pages 61 and 62 – Settings activity Can you choose a setting from reading the short plot idea? You don’t have to complete all of this but the option is there if you fancy the extra challenge.
Whatever setting you choose for your story, don’t forget to use plenty of descriptive words when you write about it. For example, instead of saying, “The old house was dark.” you could add descriptive details to make it more interesting: “The house was a dark shadow of what it had once been, a sad and empty shell with cracked windows and a peeling front door.” A story’s setting should be every bit as vivid and memorable as its characters or plot!
Activity: Choose a setting sheet and write descriptive sentences about that setting. Encourage children to use the useful words box on the sheet. Story Setting Writing Frames
Maths: Year 1: Introduce weight & mass
Year 2: Lines of symmetry
Science: What material could I use to build a wall?
In this lesson, we will be discussing different materials and their properties. We will be analysing different objects and identifying the material’s properties. We will be building and creating mini walls and using them in our experiment in the next lesson, ‘Is the Wall I’ve Built Waterproof?’. If you would like to take part in this lesson you can choose to build all or 1 wall. You will need either playdough, hay or straw, twigs or lolly sticks, sugar cubes, plastic bricks, some glue or some sticky tape. If you do not have these things, don’t worry because I will be conducting the experiment for you to see.
Not long now…I cannot wait to see you all!
