You've earned your first EPIC Readerpillar badge!

You've earned another badge on Tuesday...

...and another on Wednesday! 3 of you have read over 20 books each. Well done!

This week is Child Mental Health Week.  

Every class is linking their topic activities to this because it is soooooooo important.

The topic activities will be on the Wellbeing for Children page.  Any brothers or sisters that you have at this school will probably be doing those activities too so you can have a great time doing them together!

Monday 1st February 2021

 

Maths

Today we will be learning how to Add Lengths.  Open your Length and Perimeter workbook (the one with the red dot on it) at page 14.

 

1) In pencil, write 01/02/21 above the title.  Use a ruler to underline it.

2) Use a ruler to draw traffic lights to the right of the title.  

3) Look back at pages 6-9 to remind yourself about cm and mm.

4) Watch the video below.

5) Answer the warm-up questions in your Lockdown Learning exercise book.

6) Watch the rest of the video and pause it when it tells you.

7) Try to do workbook questions 1-7.  Do any workings-out neatly in your workbook.  It's good to see how you've answered questions. 

 

If you find these questions tricky, do at least questions 1-4

(You might find that Question 6 is easier than Question 5.)

 

8) Mark your answers neatly.  (Small ticks please!)

9) Colour your traffic lights.

Add lengths

Spelling: Jumping Orange Words

Click here for this week's words.  

 

Practise them using some of the ideas that are on the sheets that I have put on that page.  You can use your new Year 3 and 4 spelling booklet to help you.  (If you have a different spelling book that I have given you for revision, you could practise some of the words in there instead.)

 

In the Jumping Orange Words section at the bottom of page 31 in your RWI book, write the words that you have been working on today.  Remember to use a pencil and neat, joined writing.

 

Reading

Well done to those of you who have already logged in to EPIC.  One of you has read LOADS!!!  This week it would be great if we could see how many reading hours our whole class can do on EPIC.  It's a real team challenge.  Once you're ready, click here to remind yourself how to login to EPIC.  Go Team Dahl!  (Remember to record your reading in your BHBOAE.)

 

Writing

Do you remember the lovely card that you wrote to a special person or pet earlier in the year? (There is a photo in the gallery.)  We really enjoyed making the cards, but lots of us said we'd like to make more to send to other special people.  Well, I thought it would be nice to do it during our Express Yourself week.  It will give you a chance to say how you feel about someone who helps you to feel good and I know it will make them feel good during this difficult Lockdown time.

 

Today, begin to draft your ideas in your Lockdown Learning book.  Make notes or draw a mindmap about...

 

  • What makes this person special to you
  • Why you like spending time with them
  • What you enjoy doing with this person
  • How you think they feel about you
  • How you know that they feel this way
  • How you let this person know that they are special to you.

This week there aren't any videos to go with the times-tables lessons so I will put some links to songs and MyMaths to help you revise the  multiples.

Product is the number you get when you multiply numbers together.

  • Why you like spending time with them
  • What you enjoy doing with this person
  • How you think they feel about you
  • How you know that they feel this way

In your neatest handwriting (and being very careful with spelling and capital letters), do a best copy of the writing that you are putting in your card to someone special.

 

During the rest of this week, create a front cover for it too.  You could draw the person or even do some expressive artwork based on the ideas given on the Children's Wellbeing page.

Writing

Listen to the story A Song for Everyone that is on Bishop's Hull TV.  (It reminds me of A Song for Will - the story about the gardeners from Heligan.)

 

Over the next few days, I would like you to re-write the story in your own words using powerful verbs, adjectives, adverbs and some fronted adverbials.  (These instructions are also on Google Classroom and you can choose to write your story on there or in your Lockdown Learning book.)  Below is a sheet that your parents might like to read.  It is something that Mrs Payne has been given about how they can help you with writing.

 

Today describe

 

  • the street and the window where the sound came from
  • what the beautiful sound was like and where it travelled to
  • what the boy looked like and how he felt before and after hearing the song
  • what the old lady looked like, where she was going, how she moved and how she felt before and after hearing the song.

 

When you have finished, re-read you writing slowly to feel where full stops should go.

 

  • Have you missed any words by mistake?
  • Can you add any extra words or make any of them more powerful?

 

Wellbeing

Head over to the Children's Wellbeing page for Thursday's Express Yourself activity.  Today you will be seeing lots of orchestral instruments.  Try naming them as well as counting them.  Below are some pictures that will help you.

Today describe

 

  • what the cat looked like, what the music said to the cat and how the cat and the children felt when they found each other
  • how the music affected other people in the town
  • how one morning everything was silent.  (Short sentences will be really dramatic here.)
  • how everyone felt because of the silence.  You can add you own ideas here for extra detail  (e.g. how the animals behaved, what the weather was like, how people in other jobs behaved)
  • the questions that people asked and the thoughts that they had. 

 

When you have finished, re-read you writing slowly to notice missing words and to feel where full stops should go.  Can you add any extra words or make any of them more powerful?

 

Share your story with someone.  What do they think of it so far smiley?

Wellbeing

Time to head over to the Children's Wellbeing page for Friday's Express Yourself activity.  But before you go, hearing the 7x table song to 'Happy' (and seeing that Miss Brimble can't resist joining in with Happy) reminded me about the dance routine below.  It always makes me laugh.  Have a go - see if you can do better than me with those kicks out to the side smileysmileysmiley!!!

Happy by Pharrell Williams

John Jacobson and friends show us how to dance to the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams
