Remote Learning For Week Beginning 25th January

Thank you for all of the emails that you have sent over the past few days. I will respond to you all as soon as possible. I was ill at the end of last week so it will take me a few days to catch-up as I have been in school this week and I have had emails from most of you over the last week smiley .  Please bear with me.  I will respond to you all and we will upload some of your work to the gallery as soon as we can!

 

If you haven't been in touch yet, please remember to ask your parents to email me so that I can hear how you are and see some of the lovely work that you have been doing.  The email address is learningathome.034@educ.somerset.gov.uk  Please put Mrs Norrey in the subject box.

 

Have you had a look at our new Read, Read, Read page for links to books, authors and more?  I wonder who this week's author will be in The Virtual School Library.

 

Below are this week's learning activities.  If you are one of the people who is coming into school, please do not jump ahead - please do the activities on the days that are written.  Thank you.  

Monday 25th January 2021

 

Maths

Today we will be learning about Kilometres.  Open your Length and Perimeter workbook (the one with the red dot on it) at page 10.

 

1) In pencil, write 25/01/21 above the title.  Use a ruler to underline it.

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

3) Watch the video below.

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

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

6) Do workbook questions 1-8.  (Be neat and use a ruler for lines.)  If you need to do workings-out, do them neatly in your workbook.  It's good to see how you've answered questions.

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

8) Colour your traffic lights.

Aut4.8.3 - Kilometres

English

 

Spelling: Jumping Orange Words

Look at this week's words on this page. 

 

Practise them using some of the ideas that are on the different sheets that I have put there.  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 as well.)

 

Take your time: there are quite a few tricky ones!

 

In the Jumping Orange Words section at the bottom of page 27 in your RWI book, write the words that you have been working on today.  Remember to use a pencil and neat, joined writing.

 

Grammar: Standard English

1) Watch this Bitesize clip of Mr Smith explaining what Standard English is.  (Just watch the clip - you don't need to do the activities.)

 

Did you hear Mr Smith talk about how we use Standard English when we write formally - like we did in our river leaflets last week?

 

2) Watch this Espresso video that tells you a little more about Standard English.  At the end of it, there is a quiz for you to try.

 

3) Turn to page 102-103 of your purple English book and do Challenges 1 to 3.

 

4) Mark your answers.

 

Reading

Read for at least 15 minutes and record what you enjoyed in your BHBOAE. 

 

Handwriting

See the sheet below.

RE: Zacchaeus and Forgiveness

 

1) Think about

  • Have you ever done something wrong that got you into trouble?
  • How did it make you feel?
  • Did you have to own up?
  • How did it get sorted-out? Did you say sorry?
  • Did people forgive you?
  • Afterwards, when it was sorted-out, how did you feel then?

 

Jesus often got into trouble because he welcomed and made friends with people who had done very bad things. He did this because he believed that God loved them and wanted to forgive them and help them to change.

 

2) Look at the story of Zacchaeus  (Luke 19:1-10).

You can use the video or PowerPoint below.  

 

 

3) Think about

  • Why were the people angry when Jesus wanted to be friendly to Zacchaeus?
  • What did Zacchaeus do to show that he was sorry?

 

Jesus’ message was that if people wanted to be forgiven by God they had to "repent and believe the Good News."

 

Repent is not just saying sorry. Repent means to change direction, turning from what is bad to what is good. Did Zacchaeus do that?

 

4)  Try the worksheet below, thinking about a time you did something wrong and were forgiven.  (You can do this in your Lockdown Learning book or on the sheet - whichever you prefer.)

 

If you'd like to email a photo of your work to Mrs Fielding to have a look at, please do.

Animated Bible story for kids based on Luke 19:1-10.

f) Mark your answers neatly.  (Small ticks please.)

g) Colour your traffic lights.

 

2) If you have time, look at some of the 3x tables songs and tips that you can find by following the links below.  They are all quite different so you may find one that helps you more than others.

-use pencil

-use your best handwriting

-underline with a ruler

Wednesday 27th January 2021

 

Maths

1) Open your multiplication and division book at Divide by 3 (page 30).  

a) In pencil, write the date (27/01/21) above the title.  Underline it with a ruler.

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

c) Watch yesterday's video again from 06:41s.  

d) Have a go at workbook questions 1-7. 

 

Clue for question 7: You could make the towers out of cubes, bricks, LEGO something like that.  Remember that the cubes can move.  Try moving a cube from one tower to another.  It will help you to test whether consecutive numbers can be divided equally by 3.

 

f) Mark your answers neatly.  (Small ticks please.) 

g) Colour your traffic lights.

 

2) If you have time, have another look at some of the 3x table songs and tips from yesterday. 

 

You could also login to Mathshed or MyMaths and have a go at some activities.  There are many there and I don't need to have set them for you to try them.  Why not revise some place value, rounding or tables facts on MyMaths?  Why not try getting quicker at number bonds or tables facts on Mathshed?

Question 7 answers

Yes it is true that when you add 3 consecutive numbers the total can always be divided equally by 3.  This is because

 

  • the 1st number is 1 less than the middle number
  • the 3rd number is 1 more than the middle number
  • you can subtract 1 from the highest number and give it to the lowest number to make the 3 numbers equal.  We know that when we add the same number 3 times, we can divide that number into three equal groups.  Have a look at the demonstration below.

Writing/Forest School/Science/Art

This weekend is the RSPB's Great Garden Birdwatch.  At  11am today there is a BBC live lesson all about it.  Click the link below to watch it.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/live-lessons/big-schools-winterwatch-live-lesson/zv8vn9q

 

Afterwards, I would like you to create a fact file about one of your favourite garden birds.  Have a look at the example below based on the lovely long-tail tit.  

 

You could write about a robin, a wren, a blue tit, a woodpecker, a nuthatch...  It's up to you!  Use books and the Internet to do some research. There are lots of great bird links on the Forest School webpage.

 

Take lots of care to produce your very best sentences and drawings.  We'll add photos of these fact files to the gallery.

 

If you have any time left after this, use it to catch-up on any activities you've missed over the past few weeks or on any activities that you haven't finished.  

 

If you're completely up to date, go to the Read, Read, Read or Extra Activities To Try pages for extra ideas.

Spelling

Team Teach p.22 (Write the date neatly on top of the grey box.)  

Please have a chat with someone about the inter- words that you have been learning. 

Tell them which ones you found easier and which ones you found harder. 

Try to explain why.

Did you find any ways to help you remember how to spell some of the trickier words?

 

Go on to Spellingshed to practise the words one more time.  Next week, You will have your Speed Spell test!  The only word that needs a capital letter is Internet.

 

Reading Comprehension

Following on from yesterday's birdwatch lesson, read the 1-star or 2-star text below and answer the questions.  (Don't look at the answers until you've finished!)

Art

If you still have English, maths and topic to finish, use this time to do those activities.

 

If you are completely up-to-date with all of your work, have a look at the photos below that show bridges and roads disappearing into the distance.  Look back at the tips you had last week for drawing perspective.  Choose one of the pictures in the pack below and draw it.  Rulers at the ready! 

Homelearning

There are two things I'd like you to do this weekend:

 

1) Please send us a photo or video for the Express Yourself project.

For Mental Health Week next week, we would like as many photos as possible of children doing the things they enjoy.

  • What makes you happy?
  • What do you enjoy doing that makes you, you?

 

Please send a photo or video to learningathome.034@educ.somerset.gov.uk

with EXPRESS YOURSELF - Dahl in the subject box  by Wednesday 3rd February.  

 

2)  Try to take part in the Big Garden Birdwatch.  You could research the birds you see and even make a bar chart (like they did in yesterday's lesson) if you would like to do some extra English and maths.

 

I that hope you and your family have a good weekend.  

 

Mrs Norrey
