Maths

Multiplication- White Rose

Head back over to White Rose Summer term week 6. The first session this week is all about the ten times table, again we have already done this in school so you should be familiar with this already. 

Please find the worksheet and answers below. 

 

Fractions- Oak National Academy

I know you already did some fractions with White Rose right at the start of lockdown, but this is slightly different to what you have been doing before, head over to Oak National Academy to do Lesson 6 which is to identify unit fractions of a quantity. We have not done this yet in class, so keep those ears and eyes open! Remember, you don't need anything for these lessons just paper. 

Literacy

This week, our literacy sessions will all link to the theme of dinosaurs! There will be a different aspect of literacy to cover every day with lots of practical activities too! I'm excited to see what you think. 

 

Today you will be creating your own Dinosaur Fact File. You have already written a fact file on your favourite animal a few weeks ago, so you should be able to remember what to include. 

 

Choose a dinosaur to research (this can be using books or the internet) then create your fact sheet. 

Remember that it should include:

1) a title,

2) a labelled picture of your dinosaur,

3) different subheadings for each section- where does your dinosaur live? What does it eat? What does it look like?

4) a 'did you know' or 'fun fact' section- try to include 3 interesting and unusual facts! 

 

You should always check your writing for:

1) Capital letters and full stops, as well as a range of different punctuation (can you use commas and a question mark?)

2) Using coordinating and subordinating conjunctions in your writing (and, so, but, if, because, when, etc)

3) Read your writing to check it makes sense!

 

Remember to send me your fact sheets!

Phonics and Reading

 

For phonics, go over to Phonics Play and have a go at playing the Buried Treasure game. Decide if you want to challenge yourself!

Mild challenge: Choose Phase 3 and click on the 'oa' sound. 

Warm challenge: Choose Phase 3 and click on the 'er' sound. 

Spicy challenge: Choose Phase 3 and click on the 'ear' sound. 

 

Choose a book to read for 15 minutes. You can read it to someone in your house, you could read it to your teddies or pets! You could even ask really nicely to see if someone will read it to you!

 

Spelling

Our spellings for the week focus on the letter 'a' makes the /o/ sound when placed before l and ll. 

 

all

ball

call

walk

talk

always

mall

fall

natural

 

Today, have a go at look, say, cover, write and check. See how you do! 

 

Tuesday

Fractions- Oak National Academy

I know you already did some fractions with White Rose right at the start of lockdown, but this is slightly different to what you have been doing before, head over to Oak National Academy to do Lesson 7 which is to identify fractions of a quantity and shape. Remember, you don't need anything for these lessons just paper. 

Literacy

 

Today, I would like you to make some shadow drawings. If you don't have any dinosaurs any toy will work! Make one drawing in the morning, one at 12 o'clock and another in the afternoon. What do you notice? Can you write a sentence describing what has happened to your shadow? 

Phonics and Reading

Spicy challenge: Choose Phase 3 and click on the 'ure' sound. 

 

Reading will be on Epic today! I have assigned you all a collection of books about dinosaurs! Choose one to have a go at but make sure you are at a level you are comfortable with. You can read all of them if you want! There are books that will read the words to you, but just press the pause button if you want to read it yourself. 

Spelling

If you can’t remember the spellings look above.

 

Today, I thought we could play a little game called scrambled words. Grab a piece of paper and fold it three times lengthways so you make three rectangular columns. Write your words in a downwards list as neatly as you can in the first column. Then, write them again but this time with the letters all mixed up and scrambled in the second column. Now, fold your paper so you can only see the scrambled words. Put your words aside. Come back later and try to unscramble your words. Write your unscrambled words in the third column. 

Wednesday

Literacy

 

Today is an exciting one! You are going to design your very own dinosaur, Are you going to combine a T-Rex and a Diplodocus together? Or are you going to design a whole new dinosaur? 

 

I would like you to draw a picture of your new dinosaur, give it and name and label it like the picture below. 

 

Next, write five sentences to describe your dino. Use these questions to help you:

1) What does it look like? Does it have a pattern? What colour is it? Does it have horns or spikes?

2) where does it live?

3) Is it an omnivore, herbivore or a carnivore?

Literacy

 

Today, I would like you to create your own model dinosaurs! You could use cardboard boxes, lego, playdough or even sticks and grass! Can you even go further and make a family of dinosaurs, this could be two to four dinosaurs. Once you have completed your model making, I'd like you to write a speech bubble (this could be on a post-it note or piece of paper) for each dinosaur. Think about what each dinosaur might be thinking or feeling. Think about what they might say to each other. Does the baby dinosaur want a cookie? Does the mummy dinosaur like the picture baby dinosaur has painted? Are they so hungry they need to go out to hunt? Remember if they are asking a question, your sentence needs a question mark!

 

Take a photo and send them over for me to see :)

You should definitely remember your spellings by now, but if not scroll up to Monday! Have a quick go at writing them all down, did you get them right? 

 

Go outside with a ball today and as you pass the ball between you, spell out your spelling words. This could be alternating (eg, b - throw - a - throw- l - throw -  l) or passing and spelling the whole word (eg, ball - throw - all).

 

Friday

Multiplication- White Rose

As we know, White Rose don't put up a lesson on Friday. So, your challenge for today is if the answer is 10, what is the question? Use your knowledge of multiplication, division, addition, subtraction and odd or even numbers to think of 4 different questions.
