- Was it important for Jonah to go to Nineveh? Why?

Tuesday

Maths - Counting forwards and backwards to 50

Use the powerpoint to practise the questions. Encourage your child to count forwards and backwards to 50 correctly crossing the correct tens number. Your child will also need to read numbers by counting ten sticks and little bricks which are the ones. After this they can continue the sequence of numbers forwards and backwards. Towards the end, your child can also use the 50 grid to help them find numbers which come before and after. 

 

Letters and Sounds - gn

Use the powerpoint to practise reading tricky words. Introduce 'gn' as an n sound which comes at the beginning of words. Practise reading words with this sound in. These are the words to write: gnat, gnaw, gnome. This is the sentence: My hamster can gnaw at wood.

Geography - England

This is the last country of the UK we are covering this half-term! Use the powerpoint to go through the information and watch the video too. Discuss how England is the largest country of the UK and the land can differ very much depending on where you are living or staying. The task is to draw 2 contrasting pictures using the picture prompt as a guide on the last slide. The picturess your child draws should show a huge difference in the landscape and type of human and physical features there are.

Week Beginning 24.01.22

If your child is self-isolating, here is the work for the week.

 

Monday

Maths - Finding the difference by subtracting

Today your child will learn how to find the difference by subtracting. Use the powerpoint to recap Maths vocabulary for addition and subtraction by sorting the words out. Use the first 2 questions to practise comparing amounts using the pictures to help. When finding 'how many more' your child needs to be told that we find where both amounts are the same, draw a line to show they are equal but see what it left over. The left over amount shows how many more there are between the 2 amounts. The number sentence is written as the greatest amount minus the smallest amount and then what is left over is our answer. The next 2 questions need objects to compare the difference. Your child needs to line up the objects for both amounts directly underneath one another in a line so that they can see the equal amounts and then count what is left over. The next 2 questions have pictures to help but the number sentence has to have the numbers from the word problem first then the answer as the missing amount we have found. The last couple of questions are questions where we haven't got a certain group and this is what we have to find out. Your child needs to be told that we find out the missing group by writing a subtract number sentence using the numbers we have been given. We put these numbers into our part whole model too so we can see that there should be a missing part that we have to find just like the number sentence where we have the answer we need to find. They can find the answer using a number line or using objects to help them. The last slide is a challenge where your child has to find as many different answers as possible by only using the number cards to put into the missing 2 gaps of the number sentence - the answer can be any number using a number line or objects to help them work it out. Once these questions have been completed your child can try the worksheet. Please stop at a point where your child is finding the questions trickier, as the sheet gets harder towards the bottom.

 

Letters and Sounds - ch

Use the powerpoint to practise reading tricky words. Introduce the 'ch' sound which children should be familiar with. Your child will practise reading the words in the phoeneme frame. These are the words to write: church, bench, chap. This is the sentence to write: He sits on the bench. Your child will practise reading sentences on the last slide. 

 

RE - What is God like?

- Discuss we have looked at how God is a parent who forgives and loves us when we have done wrong things.

- Ask your child what happens in school if they have done something wrong. Emphasize the importance of forgiving children by the teacher giving them a fresh start the next day or moving their peg back on the sunshine.  How do parents forgive at home?

- Ask your child if it is good to forgive? Why? Why can it be hard to forgive at times?

- Tell your child sometimes people pray to God to ask for forgiveness. Christians have 4 types of prayers: praise (saying something good), saying sorry, saying thank you and asking for something. Use the powerpoint to show your child these prayer characters. 

- Tell your child we are going to look at Suzy Sorry and Peter Praise. Now we know that God is loving and forgiving, what prayers can you think of?

- Your child needs to write 1 prayer for sorry and one prayer for praise starting with 'Dear God'.

- Finally discuss if forgiveness is important for Christians only or other people too.

 

Art - Use the powerpoint to show 2 pictures created from the artist Miro. Discuss the questions together and read the information on the last slide to your child so they have some background knowledge of the paintings. Your child is going to create their own picture in the style of Miro. Your child needs to practise making lines and shapes using a black felt tip pen. They can then use colouring pencils to colour in their shapes. Show your child how to draw shapes like stars, eyes, linked circles, monsters, etc and how to colour neatly within the lines.

Tuesday

Maths - Related facts

Today your child is going to practise how to join add and subtract learning together by showing related facts - these are number sentences which all link together with the same 3 numbers using a picture or model to help them. Use the powerpoint to practise finding the 2 numbers which make the addition and then the total for the answer. I have taught the children that if you swap the numbers around in addition, you will get the same answer so this is the 2nd number sentence. For subtract, you will need to remind your child that subtraction always starts with the greatest number and then you take a part away. Whatever is left is the answer. Then you do the same but take the other part away and whatever is left is the answer. These make up the 4 related facts. Practise this with the other examples. With the part whole model and bar model towards the end, your child will need to subtract to find the missing part and then find the related facts. Explain if they add the 2 numbers they can see, they will get a greater total and they already have the whole given to them. No sheet needs completing as this is a practise lesson.

 

Letters and Sounds - tch

Use the powerpoint to practise reading tricky words. Introduce the 'tch' sound and explain this goes at the end of words and it makes a 'ch' sound. Your child will practise reading the words in the phoeneme frame. These are the words to write: fetch, match, catch. This is the sentence to write: Fetch my ball from the garden. Your child will practise reading sentences on the last slide. 

 

English - Writing the story

Recap 'The Gingerbread Man' using the link from last week. Look at the the next 3 pictures. For each picture discuss what is happening, ask your child for their sentence then let them write independently. Please remind them about capital letters, full stops, using adjectives to describe objects and using 'and/but/so' where needed if they can.

 

Geography - Northern Ireland

Use the powerpoint to go through recapping previous learning and introducing today's learning. Watch the links to real life events and then your child needs to choose a picture from the last slide and write a sentence. Please remind them about capital letters and adding a full stop after their sentence before starting a new idea.

 

Wednesday

Maths - Related facts

Recap the learning from yesterday using the powerpoint and recap how to find the 2 addition and 2 subtraction number sentences. Your child can then complete the sheet. Please stop when your child is finding the work trickier as the sheet gets harder towards the bottom. There is a challenge to complete afterwards if they can do it where they have to circle all of the number sentences which match the counters in the tens frames.

 

Letters and Sounds - t

Use the powerpoint to practise reading tricky words. Introduce the 't' sound and explain this can make a 'ch' sound when the 't' is in the middle of words. Your child will practise reading the words on each slide (please support them if it is needed). Your child will practise reading sentences on the last slide. 

 

English - Writing the story

Look at the next 3 pictures. For each picture discuss what is happening, ask your child for their sentence then let them write independently. Please remind them about capital letters, full stops, using adjectives to describe objects and using 'and/but/so' where needed if they can.

 

PSHE - What could Harold do?

- Discuss the following questions...

- What is a medicine? (Something which can be given to help make somebody feel better. NB: A medicine often only helps treat the symptoms of an illness, rather than the illness itself. The body is pretty good at recovering from most illnesses by itself!)
- How do people take medicines? (tablets that are swallowed, liquids that are measured in a special spoon and swallowed, creams or ointments that are rubbed onto the skin. Less commonly inhaled - breathed in)
- How would someone feel if they took too much medicine? (They could feel very poorly)
- How would someone feel if they took the wrong medicine? (Again they could feel very poorly)
- Why do adults need to look after medicines? (To make sure they were kept in a safe place and taken properly)
- Who would normally look after your medicine at home? (Parent/carer)
- Who would normally look after medicine if it was needed at school (A member of staff -maybe kept safely in the office) 

 

- Now discuss these questions about being ill and getting better...
- What sort of illnesses have you had?
- How did you feel when you were ill?
- Did you need any medicine to make you feel better?
- What medicines have you heard of?
- How did the medicine get into your body [e.g. as a liquid, tablet, inhaler, injection etc.]
- Who gave you the medicine?
- Where did they put it to keep it safe?
- How did they know how much to give you? [It was on the prescription/on the medicine
label]
- What else can we do to help us feel better when we’re ill? [e.g. stay in bed, stay warm,
drink plenty of water/fluids, sleep etc.]

 

- Read the story and the questions...

One day Harold the giraffe found some things on the table. What do you think Harold found?

Harold thought they looked like sweets but he wasn't sure. What should Harold do?

Harold decided to ask someone. Who could he ask?

Harold asked his mum. His mum said, 'Oh Harold! You've found my medicine. I should have put these away safely!' Where is a safe place for Harold's mum to keep her medicines?

'I'll put them in the medicine cupboard,' said Harold's mum. Where might the medicine cupboard be in the house?

Harold's mum put her medicine in a special locked cupboard. The cupboard was so high up on the bathroom wall. Why is the medicine cupboard so high up?

Harold's mum said, 'Well done Harold! You did the right thing. We should never put things into our body unless we know they are safe.'

Thursday

Maths - Comparing number sentences

Today your child will learn how to compare number sentences. Use the powerpoint to go through the practise questions. Your child will need to use the tens frames to show the addition or subtraction first, find the answers and then use the words to compare the answers. The last few questions are where your child needs to carefully see if the number sentence is add or take away first. Then they need to work out the answer and write this underneath each number sentence. They can use objects or a number line to help them. If they look closely at the numbers, they may not need to work out the answer every time. Once they have found all the answers, then they can use the comparison signs to compare the answers to the number sentences. Your child can then complete the worksheet. Once again, please feel free to stop when your child has got to a certain point. 

 

Letters and Sounds - j

Use the powerpoint to practise reading tricky words. Introduce the 'j' sound which children should be familiar with. Your child will practise reading the words in the phoneme frame. These are the words to write: jet, jog, Jane. This is the sentence: Jane went for a jog on Sunday. Your child will practise reading sentences on the last slide. 

 

English - Writing the story

Look at the next 3 pictures. For each picture discuss what is happening, ask your child for their sentence then let them write independently. Please remind them about capital letters, full stops, using adjectives to describe objects and using 'and/but/so' where needed if they can.

 

Science - Clouds and what they tell us

Use the powerpoint to go through the learning. Discuss types of clouds and the actions. Cirrus action - curls using fingers to roll upwards. Cumulus action - one hand above another to layer. Stratus action - gathering hands from the sides inwards to create a pile effect. If it is a nice day, take your child outside and try to spot some of these clouds! Your child then needs to fill in the sentences for each cloud type.

Friday

Maths - Numbers to 50

We are moving onto our next topic - numbers to 50! Use the powerpoint to introduce the learning and counting to 50. Encourage your child to say the numbers and chant forwards to 50. Afterwards, call out numbers and get your child to write these down if they can. If they are finding it hard or if they have finished this, please use the link below to navigate to an interactive grid. Call out your number and your child has to splat it by clicking on that number! During the weekend, see if your child can recognise numbers to 50 in the environment. Please see games on Busy Things which have all been increased to 50.

 

Letters and Sounds - dge

Use the powerpoint to practise reading tricky words. Introduce the 'dge' sound and explain this goes at the end of words and makes a 'j' sound.

Week Beginning 17.01.22

If your child is self-isolating, here is the work for the week.

 

Tuesday

Maths - Subtraction crossing the number 10

Use the powerpoint to go through the learning. The first slide is a first, then and now story. Your child needs to use the information in the word problem to fill in the sentences and then show it in each box by crossing out how many is needed and drawing the answer in the last box. The next slides are with the tens frames and your child needs to draw circles to represent the number, then cross out to take away and work out what is left. The next slides are with part whole models. Your child needs to use objects at home to work out how to take away by practically taking things away. When filling the part whole model, we have looked at the greatest number going at the top and then the other numbers being the parts which make the total at the top. The last few slides are word problems with pictures to help. Your child can cross out the pictures to help them. When writing number sentences, we have looked at the greatest number going first followed by the amount to take away and then what is left as being the answer. Your child can then complete the sheet. 

 

Letters and Sounds - e (longer words)

Use the powerpoint to go through reading the tricky words first. Then your child needs to practise reading the words in the phoneme frame.

These are the words to practise writing; bedroom, eggshell, telly.

This is the sentence to write: My bedroom is very messy.

Your child can then practise reading the sentences on the last slide.

Geography - Wales

We have been learning about the UK in Geography. This week we are learning about Wales! Use the powerpoint to go through the learning and discuss questions with your child. Your child then needs to pick a picture from the last slide and think of a sentence to write on the sheet. Their sentence starter can be 'In Wales...', 'There are...' or 'Wales has...'. They should be able to write atleast 3 to 4 sentences using their sounds and tricky words we have practised.

Wednesday

Maths - Subtraction crossing the number 10 using number lines

Use the powerpoint to go through the learning. The first few slides are easier - your child needs to circle the greatest number and draw the number of jumps backwards to get the answer. This is the same with the word problems too. Your child needs to circle the numbers in the word problems to help them and then work this out on the number line. When writing the number sentence, your child needs to start off with the greatest number, look at the jumps as that is what was taken away and then the answer is what they landed on. Slide 6 and 7 have a different type of word problem where it doesn't say how many have been taken away but we are given how many we are left with. Explain to your child we still start off with the greatest number, but this time we circle the answer and then we do our jumps to get to that number. The number of jumps is what we have taken away. Writing the number sentences has the same method as before. Slide 8 and 9 are the exact same as this but just in numbers so repeat the steps. Slides 10 and 11 are harder as the greater number is missing. Ask your child for ways they could solve this. If they find this too tricky please leave it out or explain to them we have to work backwards for this. We need to find a number where you take away a number leaves you with the answer, e.g. start from 8 do 4 jumps forwards and the number you land on is the greatest answer. They can then check this by doing the subtraction. The worksheet gets harder the further down you get so please stop at a point where your child feels comfortable. 

 

Letters and Sounds - ey (ee)

Use the powerpoint to practise reading tricky words. Then introduce the sound 'ey' and explain it can make an ee sound at the end of words and these words are usually long words with a lot of letters in them. Your child can practise reading the words in the phoneme frames. 

These are the words to write: key, donkey, valley, chimney

This is the sentence to write: A chimney can be dark and gloomy.

Your child can then practise reading the sentences on the last slide.

 

Maths - Acting out The Gingerbread Man

Your child can draw and cut out finger puppets to re-tell the story. They can practise changing the voices and remembering familiar phrases from the story. 

 

PSHE - Harold losing Geoffery

Discuss the following questions taking ideas as appropriate:
-Why is it upsetting to lose something?
-Have you ever lost anything but then found it later? How did it feel to find it again?
-Have you ever lost anything but never found it again? How did that feel? Were you able to replace the item?
Sometimes we lose things and fi nd them again and sometimes we lose things forever.
Harold Loses Geoffrey
Read the ‘Harold Loses Geoffrey’ story using the prompts to discuss the questions as indicated on the story sheet.

 

On one half of a piece of paper your child draws a picture of themselves when they have lost something. They draw their face showing emotions. Most children should also be able to write key words describing those emotions. On the other half of the paper they draw themselves when they have found something. How does your face show your emotions now? Most children should be able to write key words to describe those emotions.

Thursday

Maths - Solving addition problems in different ways

This lesson is to consolidate and embed learning we have been covering so far before we move on. Use the powerpoint to go through the learning. Your child can use things like adding ones and then adding the 1 10 afterwards, counting out objects, using number lines and counting on to help them work out the answers. They can use the method they find the easiest - children should not be counting from 1 each time. With the missing number questions, your child needs an explanation that they need to count on from the number given until they reach the answer. This is also best done on a number line. Your child can then complete the worksheet. 

 

Letters and Sounds - ey (ai)

Use the powerpoint to practise reading tricky words. Introduce the sound 'ey' and explain it can make an 'ai' sound at the end of words and these words are usually shorter with less letters in them. Your child can practise reading the words in the phoneme frame.

These are the words to write: hey, grey, they, prey, survey

This is the sentence to write: They did a survey about prey.

Your child can then read the sentences on the last slide.

 

English - Sequencing The Gingerbread Man Story

Use the picture sheet to go through the pictures with your child and number them together. Your child can then cut and stick the pictures into a book at home or you can use the mini book template provided which will need cutting in half and stapling together. 

 

Science - Using a graph to show information about the weather

This half-term we are looking at seasons and weather. Use the powerpoint to recap the learning and discussion points. Show the good examples of graphs and explain that they have labels on them at the bottom and on the side. This is to show what is being measure along the bottom and how much has been recorded for each on the side. These graphs usually have titles to, to explain what the graph is showing. Show the bad example of a graph and ask your child to explain what is wrong with it. The last slide is the same as the worksheet. Explain that this graph needs to show how much rain has fallen from Monday to Friday. Look at the table on the side and go through the amount of rain fallen for each day. Explain the days of the week at the bottom and the numbers along the side. Explain 1 box is for 1 number - how many boxes do we need to colour for Monday? Look at the table to help you. Once your child gets the hang of this, let them complete it by colouring in the boxes. Afterwards discuss which day had the most rain and the least rain. Can your child ut the days of the week of rain from smallest to greatest?

Friday

Maths - Solving subtraction problems in different ways

This lesson is to consolidate and embed learning we have been covering so far before we move on. Use the powerpoint to go through the learning and practise questions. Remind your child that they can use number lines and tens frames only. With the number sentences with the missing numbers, remind your child that they need to circle the greatest number and the answer and then do their jumps to see what the missing number is. This is the same with the last 2 word problems where the answer is given and not what has been taken away. Your child can then complete the sheet.

 

English - Writing the story

Your child needs to write the first 3 pictures of the story. Remind your child that they need to use capital letters, full stops, 'and' and adjectives. Let your child tell you their sentence and then let them write using their sounds and tricky words they know.

Braving the Sea 

My feet are in

I think I’ll freeze!

Now my ankles,

Now my knees.

 

Should I dive now,

Like I planned?

Or should I run

Back to dry land?

 

It feels too cold,

I don’t feel brave,

OH NO – too late!

A monster wave!

 

Why does it say 'I think I'll freeze?' Are they actually going to freeze?

Where are they walking into?

What do they mean when it says 'It feels too cold?' What feels cold?

Why do you think they don't feel brave?

Is there really a monster that is a wave? What does this mean?

 

RE - similarities and differences 

- We have been looking at what happens when Christian families and Muslim families have a new born baby. Can your child tell you what happens in both and find similarities between both and differences between both? (Discussion based).

 

Tuesday

Maths - comparing number bonds

- Start off by writing these simple addition number sentences and explain how to work them out using objects. Count out both groups first then count how many altogether and record this for the answer.

 3 + 5 = _____          4 + 2 = _____           7 + 3 = _____          5 + 4 = _____          3 + 6 = _____

 

- Now discuss how to compare number sentences where they are on both sides and you have to match them.

5 + 3          4 + 4

3 + 1           6 + 2

 

- Your child needs to work out each number sentence first and then write the answer underneath each one. When they have done this, it will be clear for them to see which ones match and then they can draw a matching line. Practise with this example too.

3 + 2           6 + 1

3 + 4           5 + 0

 

- Then your child needs to do the exact same method in order to put the equality sign in the middle to make the number sentences correct. These are the signs...

< - less than          > - greater than          = equal to

Your child should be familiar with these from previous maths lessons and should know that the sign likes to eat the largest number, e.g. 6 > 3 or 5 = 5 or 2<8.

- Practise with these questions.

4 + 3     ____     2 + 3     

 

7           ____     7

 

2 + 1      ____     5 + 4

 

Letters and Sounds - ue

- Practise flashcards on Busy Things.

- Look at the 'ue' digraph again but this time explain it can be a 'you' sound at the end of words.

- Practise reading these words together; rescue, cue and due.

- Write those words.

English - poetry

- Re-read the poem from the previous day and discuss what it was about. 

- Today your child will be thinking about rhyming words to change the poem. Rhyming words are words which have the same letters at the end of the words or the same sounds when spoken, e.g. ran, ban, tan or thought, wart, taught, caught, etc.

- Look at my version I changed.

 

Braving the Sea

My feet are in

I think I’ll stand!

Now my ankles,

Now my hands .

 

Should I dive now,

Like I said?

Or should I run

Back to the shed?

 

It feels too cold,

I don’t feel right,

OH NO – too late!

I just got a huge fright!

 

- Think about the following things in order to find the correct rhyming words.

- What would you do when you are in water? Find matching rhyming words to this which will rhyme the next red word.

- How would you speak instead of said? Find rhyming words which will match this and the next rhyming word in red. 

- How would you feel in the water? Finding rhyming words which will match the next red word and in your own sentence.

- Your child will need to work on this with you as with rhyming and poetry, children always find trickier than writing sentences.

 

Geography - Drawing a map

- Your child needs to draw a map today of the room they are sitting in.

- First they need to draw a key-ask them what this is on a map (a box where there are pictures to show a symbol and a word to show what they symbol is).

- Once they have done this they can draw the different things around the room. They need to remember that it has to show an ariel view ( looking down from above) so you will only be able to see the shapes of the top of things. Maps should be spread out and the same symbols on the key should match what is on the map.

 

Wednesday

Maths - comparing number bonds

- Recap the learning from yesterday.

Thursday

Maths - Adding together

- Use the Powerpoint to go through the questions. Your child needs to know how to add together by counting the 2 different groups and then counting how many there are in total/altogether. They then need to use those numbers to fill in the part part whole model. The 2 circle opposite each other are called parts where the 2 numbers go and the circle on its own is where the answer goes called the whole. They then use those same numbers again to write a number sentence.

- I have taught the children that if you swap the numbers around in a number sentence you can get the same answer.

- Where there is an equals signs first, the whole (answer) comes first followed by the 2 parts.

- This is a practise/discussion activity so no recording is needed. If you child finds the challenges towards the end too tricky, please leave this out.

 

Letters and Sounds - wh

- Practise flashcards on Busy Things.

- Show the 'wh' digraph and explain the sound it makes which can go at the beginning of words.
