This week we have three new sounds, watch the videos below and practise reading and spelling words with these new sounds. Choose one sound a day and then have a recap at the end of the week. Can you make up a sentence using some of the new words?
How many left (1) this lesson is called different things in different places, be assured I have checked the links are all to the correct things!
Make equal groups - sharing (2)
You did the first part of this lesson (pages 44 and 45 before half term) and watched the video (you may recognise it!) so this watch is to remind you.
New spellings for this week are on the spelling star for you.
If you have a suitable dictionary at home have ago at looking up this week’s spellings. Can you write a definition for each? If you don’t you, can access the kids Britannica dictionary with this link
and type in word searches
This week we will be learning about a significant adult in English history, this work will help you with your history lesson tomorrow. I will give you some clues to help you identify who we will be learning about, it is a lady who lived a long time ago, she was a fossil hunter and lived in Lyme Regis. Do you know who this is? This week we will be learning about Mary Anning!
Today you can watch the video by clicking the link below to find out all about Mary's life and then complete the reading and comprehension sheet.
****Adults, please read and carry out the instructions for the science lesson (see link below) prior to the lesson! ******
Have a go at Zoom in zoom out
Did you guess what it was before it was fully zoomed out?
In our science lesson today we are thinking about camouflage.
This lesson requires some preparation - adults see note above!
Make up a story that some caterpillars of different colours have escaped from a scientist’s lab. There were 5 of each colour and they are now somewhere in the wildlife area. Give children 5 minutes to find the caterpillars.
When children have returned with their finds use the template (see resources) bar chart of the numbers of each colour caterpillar found. Just use page 1. The numbers axis is done for you and you just need to add the colours to the bottom axis. Children could record why they thought they found a particular colour of caterpillar more than others (if this is the case, could it be due to their colour therefore they were easier/harder to find?). This then links to - Were any of the minibeasts we saw last session camouflaged? Talk to your adult. Could camouflage come into play today?Watch the following videos to help with your understanding of camouflage -

Same video as yesterday to help consolidate your learning.
Make equal groups - grouping
If you have playdoh, blue tac or plastine available, make your spellings using these materials. Or string or twigs would be a great alternative if it is a dry day to collect and display the spellings.
Today you can read more about Mary's life using the powerpoint below, at the end there is a quiz. Test yourself to see how much you know about Mary Anning.
When you are ready, complete your own fact sheet about Mary Anning, you can use the sheet provided or make your own fact sheet up and draw a picture of Mary.
In History we have been thinking about significant individuals. Do you remember learning about Emmeline Pankhurst before half term? Today we are going to learn about Mary Anning. Watch the powerpoint to find out about her. Maybe some of you have been to Lyme Regis or Charmouth to look for fossils? Did you see in the news a few weeks ago about the 4 year old girl who found a dinosaur footprint on the beach in Wales? How exciting must that have been! Now have a go at the dinosaur cut and stick (see below). I have also put a fact sheet to help with your learning about Mary Anning.

Look, write, cover, spell. Using our method practise writing out your spellings this week.
As we are currently unable to go on a school trip, watch the fossil hunt on Charmouth beach by clicking the link below.
After you have watched the hunt, have a go at making your own fossil zig zag book using the template below. If you want to challenge yourself, why not write about each stage of the fossilisation and then explain it to an adult in your house.
This is a fun fossil game to play online
In the holidays it was Pancake Day! Did you have any pancakes? What were your favourite fillings? Did you toss your pancakes?
Read the powerpoint and find out why it is called Shrove Tuesday and then read the Pancake day text a and answer the questions and if you are confident you could read and answer the text and called questions 1.

If your child has completed all their maths tasks and you need something else for them to do in maths don't forget you have the photocopied workbooks (mentioned in parent letter dated 13.1.21 see main page). There is also work set on mymaths (password on passwords page of BHBoE) times table practice on TTRockstars and try the site below too!
Spelling Test today, good luck everyone!
Please continue your handwriting at the back of your orange book, this week we will practise the capital letters; I, J, K and L.
It is said that Mary Anning’s life inspired the tongue twister ‘she sells sea shells on the seashore.’
Have a go at reading some of the tongue twisters by clicking the link, can you have a family competition who can say the rhymes correctly the most times?
The museum in Lyme Regis is brilliant as we can not visit it at the moment you can find out lots more information about fossils and then choose a craft to make and have fun with. Click on the link below.
This term in P.E we will focus on DANCE!
Warm up: Shakes
Find a space. Stand up in your space. Draw an air circle around your space. Shake your hands high in the air, at your shoulders, hips, knees, feet. Walk around the edge of your circle; shake your hands as if you are sweeping away the dirt. Shake your shoulders, high, low to the side. Repeat with other body parts- hips/bottom, knees, feet. Shake your whole body around the room.
Move in different directions and levels. Come back to your space. Shake slower to stop.
Seasons - Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer
Winter: Discuss the different seasons, what season are we in now? Think about the differences that happen in each season.
Discuss the changes that happen in winter time. Talk about the colder weather – snow, ice etc.
If possible use some ice to observe. Touch and feel the ice – how cold, wet, sharp, smooth and slippery it is. What ice shapes do we find in winter?
Explore and experiment with different shapes you can make. Can you make icicle shapes? What shapes does it make as it melts and recreates other shapes. Use twisting and turning to form new shapes. How many shapes can you find?
Look at the piece of ice again. What happens if it is hit? It shatters.
Experiment with different shapes of your body shattering into spiky and jagged shapes, by parting in quick jerky movements.
Discuss different actions people do to keep warm. Jumping up and down on the spot, wrapping their arms around their bodies, shivering etc.
Explore some of the actions together. What do we wear to keep warm – scarves, gloves and hats. Explore dancing with a scarf. What movements could you do? How many different movements can you find? Use different directions, speeds and levels. Finish with the scarf wrapped around you all snug and warm.
Warm down: Think of nature in wintertime, how do animals keep safe and warm? Think of two different animals that hibernate during Winter and recreate their sleeping position. Hold your position for 30 seconds, can an adult in your house guess your animal?
Remember we have our own brilliant 'Get Active' P.E web page. In just one click you will find lots of fun activities you can do at home either on your own or with family members. It's brilliant! Thankyou to Mrs Fielding!
