Holidays topic day 2021

Home Learning - Week 24.1.22

 

 

Monday

Maths - 

Today we will be looking at 2D shape. I would like you to look at the different shapes and explain how you know. For example, I know that object x is a square because it has 4 sides and they are all the same equal length. Please see the powerpoint below. Following this, I would like you to go on a shape hunt around your house to see if you can find as many 2D shapes as you can. Draw and label them on the sheet below. 

English - 

We are continuing with our work on The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers. Please find a link to listen and watch the story being read here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHJE9vk_fmA

We will be practising together what question and statment setences are so we can use them successfully in a letter we will write tomorrow as the boy to our mum and dad back on Earth.  question sentence is a sentence which needs to be answered by the reader and needs a questions mark at the end not just a full stop. A statement sentence is a sentence which explains/ describes/ informs and needs a full stop at the end. 

We will be writing these sentences on whiteboards in school so you may want to use either scrap paper or the Handwriting paper above this chart to complete this task.  

Phonics- 

We will revisit the digraphs learned over the last few weeks which are ay, ou, ie, ea, oy, ir, ue, aw, and ph. Recap previous weeks’ tricky words oh, their, people, Mr, Mrs, looked, called, asked and new tricky word could. Introduce wh. We will read words which contain this digraph, such as when, what, why, where, wheel, whip, whisper. We will then complete a worksheet to practise writing it. 

Tuesday

 Maths - 

Following on from yesterday's lesson, we will be continuing to describe 2D shapes. Today we will look at 2D shapes in different orientations using our properties knowledge to identify how we know which group it belongs to. Please see attached powerpoint below to support your learning. Following this there is an activity sheet attached under Tuesday's heading. 

English -

Re read the the book 'The Way Back Home', by Oliver Jeffers using the link on Monday. 

We will write in our books and use the sentences we came up with yesterday and apply these today in a letter to mum and dad, with the chidlren pretending to be the boy, from the story. You might want to use the Handwriting paper above this chart to complete this activity. 

We will use the opening 'Dear' and the ending 'From'. We will use one or two question sentences in our letter as well as using senetnces to desrcibe what has happened, what the Martian looks like, what the moon is like. We will try to use some conjunctions such as and, but, so and because. 

Phonics- 

We will revisit the digraphs learned over the last few weeks which are ay, ou, ie, ea, oy, ir, ue, aw, and ph as well as wh. Recap previous weeks’ tricky words oh, their, people, Mr, Mrs, looked, called, asked and new tricky word could. Introduce ew. We will read words which contain this digraph, such as crew, new, flew, chew, blew. We will then write sentences using a word containing ew in it to practise applying. This could be done by using the Handwriting paper attached above this chart.
