Well another week has passed, and looking out of the window, today is definitely a wellington boot kind of day!
A BIG well done to everyone reading their books on Active Learn. Keep up the fabulous work!
This week in class we have based our learning around the book
Here’s the youtube link to listen to it.
In Literacy lessons we have sequenced, completing this sheet.
We also wrote thought bubbles and speech bubbles for spiders. We imagined they were in the classroom looking at us. What were they thinking? What would they be saying if they could talk? We used the sheets below.
We then watched some children’s youtube videos on spiders, and then wrote some facts about them too. Like below. We tried really hard to form our letters correctly, use our digraph/trigraph knowledge to write longer words, and make sure we use finger spaces between our words.
We then learnt about the parts of the spider and labelled them.
In maths we have been working a lot on adding single digit numbers. Here is one we did.
We rolled the dice twice and then used our fingers, cubes and our number lines to help us add the numbers together. We then used our highlighters to mark off our bingo card.
Some of us also had a go at this one.
We had to add three numbers together. Again we used cubes to help us.
We enjoyed our craft activities this week. We made these hats first, so we could wear them whilst we sang this spider song.
We also created these too using paper plates, card, paint, white chalk and googly eyes.
We then went on to make these spiders using wool, pipe cleaners and google eyes.
If none of those take your fancy you could create spiders using your hands and paint.
We hope you enjoy this weeks learning, as much as we did.
Take care Mrs Marriott and Mrs Briggs x
we would just like to start by saying to all who are home learning, keep up the great work! We are obviously missing seeing your little smiley faces, but we are loving your emails and photos. Please keep them coming.
This week in school we have based our learning around the book ‘Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell’. It did make us giggle when we heard the story.
Here is a link for you to listen to it.
As Norman flew off at the end of the story using a pair of pants, it got us thinking about other things he could perhaps use for a pair of wings. We drew a picture of what we thought would make a great pair of wings for him.
We also created these…
We tried to create repeating spiral patterns for his shell like above.
We have been doing lots of quick fire maths games to kick us off. Answering questions linked to doubling, one more and one less than numbers to 20, and adding/subtracting single digits.
Some of us have also been counting in 2’s to 20. We clapped these has we said them first. We then also completed these below. You could print them off and have a go too.
The sheet below we cut up for the children first. Then they had to put it together like a jigsaw. We then turned our paper over and tried to write the 2’s numbers to 20 independently.
Others in class had a go at these too..
We have been working a lot on sentences this week. We were trying hard to make sure we…
- used finger spaces between our words
- formed our letters correctly
- used our phase 3 phonic knowledge to spell longer words we wanted to write.
First of all, we wrote all about our design for Norman’s new wings. We also watched some films online about slugs and snail, and then wrote about what we had learnt about them. Please don’t forget to keep working on your digraph/trigraph knowledge. Use the phase 3 mat below and see how many words you can write for each of the digraphs/trigraphs. For example, ‘igh’ trigraph – light, night, sight.
- Then write sentences with some of the words in too. For example, “The cow was on the farm” “The light was on in my room”.
- Bye for now and keep going. You are doing a brilliant job.
- Love Mrs Marrriott & Mrs Briggs x
As our learning has been around the story book ‘Superworm’ this week, we decided to learn this song.
this week in school we have been basing a lot of our learning around the book ‘Superworm’. You can listen to it here if you don’t have it.
In literacy, we went on a digraph/trigraph hunt outside. You could make your own cards using scrap paper and the mat below. You could then get an adult to hide them outside, and then you go and find them. Every time you find one tick them off your mat. See below.
We then had a go at writing one word for each digraph and trigraph. e.g ‘ch’ = chip ‘igh’ = night
We also read the story ‘Superworm’ then tried to create a new page for the book. What else could ‘Superworm’ be used for? He was used as a belt, a hat and a skipping rope etc. Can you think of another use for him? Write some sentences to create your own page or pages for the story book ‘Superworm’.
We also learnt about Earthworms, by watching youtube clips, and PowerPoints. Then we completed our charts below.
This week we have been working on halving.
We watched a halving story first.
We then used hoops and markers/bottle lids outside to halve amounts said. For example half of 2. Children found 2 lids/cones and then had to share them between the two hoops. We repeated this with different amounts up to 12.
or you can using these halving mats and objects.
Understanding the word
We have been learning about the life cycle of a worm, and creating wormeries. We created a life cycle of a worm hat to wear, whilst we sang our ‘Superworm’ song
see link below for the ‘Superworm’ song.
We have been busy making our own ‘Superworms’ too. like these below. We cut their body out of card, and then wrapped wool around them, creating a repeating pattern on them. We then made them red capes too.
We made pipe cleaner worms too.
We have also learnt to sing this song.
Love Mrs Marriott & Mrs Briggs
We went on a digraph and trigraph hunt.
We then came inside and had to think of one word for each of the digraphs and trigraphs that we found.
In maths this week we have been learning about halving amounts. We used hula hoops, lids and markers to help us work out the answer.
