Maths – Keep practising your times tables!
The worksheets for White Rose Maths are no longer on the website, so you can find them attached below. You may still wish to watch the videos so please still follow the link.
Year 1 - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
Year 2 - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/
For this week please start with summer term, week 9, lessons 1-4. Record the answers in your maths book. You don’t necessarily need to write the questions out, unless the adult teaching you wants you to, as it may be easier to mark.
The worksheets are fairly simple so I would suggest doing some work practically. This will help with understanding.
EXTRA (optional) – I have added mastery sheets for both year 1 and year 2, for those of you who find the work easy and want to push themselves, feel free to have a go.
Phonics – please follow the link:
This week we are going to be looking at the short film ‘Dangle’. (All work to be completed in your books, don’t forget capital letters, full stops and finger spaces!)
Please watch the Link: https://www.literacyshed.com/dangle.html
WALT – retell a story using pictures to understand the characters thoughts and feelings.
Play the film ‘Dangle’ all the way through. Discuss responses to the film and allow children to talk about the ending. Ask the children to predict what would happen next? Have your opinions changed since you first watched the film?
Task – use booklet resource attached.
Year 1 – Children draw 3 or 4 pictures to retell the story using facial expressions to convey emotions. Write one word below the picture to explain what emotion that man is feeling.
Year 2 – Children to draw 4 pictures to retell the story using facial expressions to convey emotions and write a short sentence at the bottom of the picture to explain how the character is feeling. Discuss and reflect on how the characters emotion has changed.
WALT be able to write about a character’s experience using different sentence structures.
Watch the film again if necessary. Recap on the different types of sentences – question, statement, command, exclamation.
Explain to the children that they will be recording character thoughts and feelings using different sentence types. They will be focusing of specific events from the story and write different sentences for each scenario.
Model a sentence so that they can see what we are expecting:
Ask children to think about the opening scene (the man walking up the hill) and recap on thoughts/feelings. Can we think of a question he might be asking himself? Repeat with the other sentence types.
Year 1 – using Resource 7a, decide whether they are a question, command, statement or exclamation. If they grasp this very easily then let them have a go at resource 7b or think of their own. (make sure resource 7a is hidden)
Year 2 – Using resource 7b children use the scenarios from the story and write 1 or 2 different sentences about the event using different structures.
WALT write a diamante poem
Look at the examples of diamante poems. What patterns do you notice?
Draw out the diamante poem Line 1: The beginning subject, Line 2: Two adjectives about the beginning subject, Line 3: Three verbs or words ending in ‘ing’ about the beginning subject. Line 4: A few words about the beginning subject and a few words about the final subject Line 5: Three verbs ending in about the final subject; Line 6: Two adjectives about the final subject, Line 7: final subject.
Year 1 – with adult support, children to write a diamante poem. A word bank might be offered.
Year 2 – Attempt to write a diamante poem. A word bank might be offered.
WALT be able to edit and improve my writing by responding to feedback.
Split the room or table into different sections using resources 5a, 5b, 5c and 5d.
Explain that today they will be editing their work and responding to feedback from an adult or sibling who has looked for improvements in their work based upon resources 5a-d.
Year 1/2 – Children make some edits to spellings and punctuation. Children should re-read their writing to check it makes sense.
Year 1 WALT perform their own composition, using appropriate intonation volume, and movement so that meaning is clear.
You may wish to record the children’s performances to help with the process
Therefore, recording devices would be necessary.
Model reading clearly. Those children who are confident might introduce some techniques to emphasise world – whispering, intonation etc. Children might use actions to highlight certain phrases as well. Model how to do this but also ensure performances are not overly dramatic.
Science – World Habitats
Please look through the powerpoint and discuss world habitats. Children then pick one habitat and draw the animals and plants that would live there. Please attempt to label the pictures.
RE – Maccabee Brothers. Go through the powerpoint and then draw and write down the important events on the activity sheet.
History – The Great Fire of London, lesson 5 – What happened after The Great Fire of London?
Go through the powerpoint and find out facts about happened after The Great Fire of London? Then have a go at redesigning London.
Extra activity for those who fancy a challenge:
So, as a school we are aiming to get an award called the ‘Fair Trade Award’. In order to receive the award, we need some children to complete the task. Below there is a link that will take you to a page with a video called ‘Guardians of the Rainforest’. Watch the clip and then pick a task for ‘Guardians of the rainforest’ task sheet. Once completed you can either send me a picture of it or ask mum and dad to send me some feedback about via email or both. Have a go and let me know!
Spellings – Please test week 4 spellings on 29th June. Practise week 5 for Monday next week.
ICT – Study ladder activities
