Friday 22nd May

Good morning everyone! How are you?

Today's activities are as follows:-

 

Maths

Please finish the White Rose Activities for the week. The worksheets are attached under Monday's post. Friday's White Rose activity is a family challenge! There are lots of problems to solve, the most suitable for year 2, being questions 1 to 3. Looks like fun and there are certificates to download too!

There is also some new MyMaths set which revises 10x table and using coins.

 

English - Writing

We hope you have enjoyed creating your space creature and writing some extended noun phrases to go with it. 

Today we are going to be writing a description of our character, using our picture and noun phrases. A description gives the reader information about your creature. It might answer some of these questions:-

What does it look like?

What does it feel like?

What does it eat?

How does it move?

Where does it live?

What special features does it have?

 

Your description will be full of statements. These are sentences that give information.

 

Let's use Mrs Jenkins' picture from Wednesday to have a go at the first few sentences of a description.

 

Picture 1

The Igglepop is a strange creature from the planet Pop. It has a dome shaped head with three scary, lazer eyes. Two purple, jelly arms wave from its green, spotty body. It has four extendable legs with suction pads for moving about. The Igglepop likes to eat .....

 

Did you spot the extended noun phrases and how commas have been used when listing the adjectives?

 

Good luck with writing your Space Creature description. Do continue to send in your work. We love to see your photos and know that you are o.k.

 

Geography

Today is the last of the mapping activities and it's a creative challenge!

 

Can you create a map with a key of the place where your space creature lives?

 

Remember that the key is a set of symbols that represents a place on the map. Here is my idea for Pop, where Igglepop lives! 

 

 

 

 

Have fun creating your map!

 

Thank you for all your hard work and effort with home learning. We are sure that it has its challenges and some days are better than others. We do not expect you to complete all the tasks, but hope that you will enjoy some of them and that they are helpful in your child's learning journey. As ever please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of more help.

Next week is the half-term holiday, so there will not be any new work until Monday 1st June.

Hope that you all have a lovely half-term!

Monday 18th May

 

Good morning everybody. Hope you had a lovely weekend? Here are our learning activities for today.

 

English - Reading Comprehension

Continuing with our space theme, please find below a SATs style Reading Paper. Read the text on each page before answering the questions. Feel free to talk through the answers or record them on paper.

Space Adventure Reading Comprehension

I hope you enjoyed reading about the funny space creatures? Later in the week we will be writing a description of our own imaginary character from outer space! To help you  get ready, can you draw a picture of your imaginary space creature? (Have a good look at Bibbo and the teacher from outer space to give you some inspiration!)

 

Maths

Please continue with the White Rose Maths lessons for week 5 lesson 1. This is a revision lesson about multiplication. There are suggestions for further learning through BBC Bitesize.

The worksheets for the week are attached below.

Quest - Geography

 

Today we are going to be thinking about the use of symbols and keys with maps.

Click on the map to find out more.

 

 

 

Notice how the key explains what each symbol means. It helps us to understand the map.

Today we would like you to have a go at creating a simple map for the village of Bishop's Hull!

Firstly, you will need to create a key, with symbols for the following places:

- School

- Church

- Village Stores

- Butchers

- War Memorial

- Playing Field

 

Now have a look at the aerial map below to see if you can spot these places. This image was taken from Google Earth, so you might like to take a look through the street view.

 

Now we would like you to have a go at drawing your map with symbols for the above listed places. You may like to add some other places too. I think I would start by drawing the main road first!

 

I've attached the picture below if you would like to print it.

 

Happy mapping!

Saturday 16th May

Hello everyone!

I thought you might like a story for the weekend?  This is a story called 'The word collector' read by Barack and Michelle Obama. Maybe you could collect different groups of words when you next read a story and base your collections on different themes? 

Barack Obama was the President of the USA for 8 years from 2009. If you like their story reading then search online for more stories, read by Michelle - The gruffalo, The very hungry caterpillar, There's a dragon in your book and Miss Maple's seeds.

Mrs Fielding has asked us to share details of the SASP #May Challenge.

The idea of the challenge is to get people playing fun simple games at home as a family every day throughout May. 

 

I know that I have put out a lot of resources lately but I really would like to share this challenge as far wide across Somerset as possible. We are looking for families to interact with us and share videos/images of them playing the games and using the hashtag #MayChallenge - I will be giving it a go myself!

 

The calendar is attached to this email, feel free to share with ALL your family groups, partners and other EYFS settings (or schools of which you have links to them too) share within your own families too?

 

If you didn't know SASP socials are on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram (just search SASP Somerset), you can interact with personal accounts or professional ones, there are no rules to this challenge, give it a go and see if you can tick all 31 days!! Our website also has lots of ideas that you can share out as well - https://www.sasp.co.uk/home-family-activities 

 

Who knows what May has in store for us but let's keep supporting each other. 😊

2. Order the heights from shortest to tallest.

3. Write some comparison statements using < and > symbols

e.g. Mum 1m 52cm > Tom 1m 22cm

 

Also, you can practice your arithmetic with the 10 a day sheet below.

Today we would like you to have a go at writing your own Spring Acrostic poem! Click here for some spring pictures to give you some inspiration!

 

Maths

Sorting 3d shapes in different ways, according to their properties, such as faces, edges and vertices.

Here are some ideas to help:

-shapes with curved faces, shapes without curved faces

-shapes with 6 faces, shapes that do not have 6 faces

-shapes with 8 vertices, shapes that do not have 8 vertices.

 

R. E.

In R.E. we have been learning about what Christians believe about Easter. We have been focusing on the events of Holy Week and have already heard the story of Palm Sunday and the Last Supper.

Can you find out a bit more about the events of Holy Week and the Easter story?

A children’s Bible might help if you have one or click here for the story on Espresso.

Now copy out the finished poem in your neatest writing (joined if you can). I wish I could see your poems! 

 

Maths – 3d shapes

Find some 3d shapes (cones, cubes, cuboids, spheres, pyramids, cylinders, triangular prisms)

Have a good look at each one. Can you identify:

 - the number of faces and their shapes (Faces can be flat or curved.)

 -the number of edges (where faces meet)

- the number of vertices (the points where edges meet)

 

Make a table like the one below to record the number of faces, edges and vertices each shape has:-

 

 

Quest

As the weather is nice, continue to look for signs of spring in your garden or during your outside exercise time with your family, if this is part of your routine (please remember social distancing).

Can you name any animals or plants that you see? Looking under stones and logs can be interesting, but remember to carefully put back after, as these are part of the animal’s home.
