Y2 w/e 29.3.19

This week we have been

Identifying properties of 2d and 3D shapes as well as practising our 2/5/10x tables to develop recall.

Writing a Mother's Day poem and making cards and peppermint cremes!

Making our sock puppets

Looking at the 4 purposes and turning them into child friendly statements on posters. We have covered Healthy Confident Individuals so far.

Have a look around the home for different objects that are the shapes we discussed -
Cuboid
Cube
Sphere
Square based pyramid
Tetrahedron
Cone
Pentagon/ hexagon/ heptagon/ octagon/ nonagon/ decagon
Triangle
Square/ rectangle/ circle etc

Identify the properties of them-
How many faces?
How many sides? (2d)
How many edges? (3D)
How many vertices? (Corners)

Use topmarks for lots of fun maths games.

If the weather continues into next week, it maybe worth ensuring your child has suncream, a hat and water bottle in school!

Our Wild Place trip is on Friday for anyone who hasn't returned the consent forms.

Have a lovely weekend, hopefully the weather will continue.

Home learning Year 6 w.e. 29.03.19

This week we have been

Literacy – writing mother’s day poems, using feelings to show how we would have felt as an evacuee

Numeracy – revising timetables, fractions of amounts and division

Science – writing a conclusion and linking our findings to everyday life

 

Activities to try at home.

Literacy – write a short paragraph from the host family’s perspective.  Write down the different feeling they may have and then write a short paragraph using these feelings.  Remember to vary the length of your sentences to add interest to your writing. Choose one of your sentences and up level – highlight where you have done this.  Also edit your work for errors especially capital letters and full stops.

 

Numeracy – the children have bought home a sheet of maths they should cover in year 6 and now be confident in most of these areas (there are a few areas we haven’t yet covered in school.)  If there are any areas on the sheet that your child is unsure of then please have a go at reinforcing them at home.  Some of the games on mymaths are useful along with other websites such as topmarks.  Remember to keep learning your tables including the division (fact families)

 

This week we were meant to start looking at the artist Henry Moore – please research the artist looking at his WWII drawings and bring any information into school next week.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Year 1

Good afternoon all,

 

Next week we shall be looking at poetry and it would be great if you could introduce the children to some poetry from the library. Michael Rosen also has some great poetry on youtube.

 

The children could then create their own acrostic poems about something they have done over the weekend.

 

An acrostic poem

Can be about anything

Really

Of course some people like to

Start each line with just one word or a sentence

Though

I like to

Create one that is free and flowing

 

In topic we have looked at weather patterns and wrote our own weather forecasts and for maths we have worked our way through termly assessments.

 

I would like to suggest a website called nrich that is full of helpful math lessons and activities. It is somewhat confusing to navigate but is full of interesting activity ideas and it  explains how the activities benefit the children. Type nrich coloured squares into google to access a fun directional puzzle.

 

Kind regards,

 

The year 1 team

How to help your child at home

Literacy- When you are reading at home, encourage your child to identify different types of punctuation and why it is used. We have been looking at full stops, question marks and exclamation marks.

Numeracy- Please encourage your child to identify their left and right hand. Alos maybe play a game with directional language. For eg. Can you direct me to the kitchen, bedroom etc.

Well what can I say, what an amazing morning we had- marching in support of Climate Change. Thank you for supporting the event on this beautiful sunny morning.

Enjoy the weekend.


Year 3 homework

Dosbarth Mr Green

Week Commencing 25/3/19

 

 

Literacy: Learn the spellings that will be written in Homework books by finding their meanings if necessary and writing them in a sentence.  Your child will be tested a week  Friday.

 

 

Numeracy: This week we have been multiplying and dividing using times tables. I would really appreciate you and your child spending time to learn the tables as they will help understanding of harder work in many other areas of maths in the future.

Year 6 Home Learning w.e. 22.03.19

This week we have been

Literacy - identifying words the author has used for effect in a diary entry of Anne Frank
      retelling the journey of an evacuee to the countryside

Numeracy - multiplying and dividing number up to 2 decimal points

Science - planning an investigation

Activities to try at home

Numeracy - I have set mymaths homework this week recapping some of the work we have previously completed with decimals and multiplication.  Many of the children found the activities challenging as they are not confident with their times tables.  We are working hard on this in class, however they also need to be learning them at home so they are confident completing associated activities.  There are lots of games they can use online including other activities on mymaths.

Literacy - research the places the children were evacuated to during WWII.  Using a map and a key highlight the different places.  Research the numbers of children who were evacuated to the countryside.

Science - we are looking at the effect of different drinks on teeth (eggs)  write a list of food and drinks which are harmful to your teeth and how you an keep them healthy. 

Thank you for your help with the presentation - the children were amazing.

Year 1

Good afternoon to you all,

 

We have had a challenging and varied week in year one.

 

In English for big write they have been writing their own potion recipes, looking at the importance of “bossy” verbs (words that tell you what to do EG chop, boil and pour) and “ordering” words. (Words like firstly, finally and next.) If you can forgive me for suggesting a messy activity I would say you could reinforce this learning through making their very own, edible, potions. (Lots of recipes online) or by cooking.

 

For topic they have started to make self-portraits of themselves using the computer programme called paint.  If you have access to this software it would help support their learning if they become familiar with the basic tools of paint by making a drawing of their choice and labelling their drawing using the text tool.

 

Next week they will be making weather observations and it would be useful if they watch a weather forecast and create their very own weather report at home. The year 1 team would love for them to bring this in to support their learning.

 

Have a fantastic weekend,

 

The year 1 team.

Year 4 Home Learning- Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips W/E 22.3.19


Maths-

Multiples and factors of numbers. We found the lowest common multiple of numbers as well as the factors that are multiplied together to make them.

So for example, multiples of 2 are 2, 4, 6, 8 10 etc and multiples of 5 are 5, 10, 15, 20 etc. So the lowest common multiple of 2 and 5 is 10. Is there a quick way to find the LCM?


Factors are the numbers that are multiplied to make a given number, so for example factors of 24 are 1, 24, 2, 12, 6, 3 and 8. We started to look at prime numbers, what do you notice with factors of prime numbers?


Have a look at- https://www.bbc.com/bitesize/topics/zfq7hyc

And https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/multiples-and-factors


Could you use a Venn or Carroll diagram to sort multiples? Try- http://www.crickweb.co.uk/ks2numeracy-properties-and-ordering.html If you scroll down a little way, there is a Venn Diagram activity where you can select which numbers to use.


It really helped to be speedy with times tables recall for the work this week, so lots of children will benefit from practising this more at home.


Literacy- Carried on with our play-script activities.


Science- The Water Cycle. We watched a clip that explains this and labelled a diagram. Next week we will be creating a 'voice over' to narrate a video that explains the cycle in their own words using the IPADs. Can they explain it to you at home?

Hopefully you received your water usage survey at home to look at together. Discuss if you have a water meter at home. Next week we will be looking at how much water different jobs use (which is why it was crossed out on the sheet, as I want them to predict how much is used!)


ICT- we created a class database of records, which had different fields of information. We looked at how you can search for certain fields. E.g search all the boys in the class, search for all the 8 year olds. Try some at home on Excel.


P.E We began some work with orienteering this week. We looked at orientating a map when we needed to follow a simple course. Lots more exciting things to follow.


I hope they have a super time away on Monday and Tuesday and gain a lot from the experience. Hope they don't come back too tired!!

Have a lovely weekend.

Y2 w/e 15.3.19

This week we have been

Learning to tell the time including digital time- I have been so so impressed with how well the children have picked this up, we've even been doing tricky time like twenty to 7 and 7:45 etc!

Looking at a story from Comic Relief and discussing our similarities and differences with a refugee. Learning how everybody should be respected and treated the same regardless of skin colour/ ethnicity etc.

Designing ideas for our sock puppets and the materials we may want to use.

Asking and answering "ble est ti?" Where did you go? And answering including who we went with "Es i i........ gyda....."

You can help at home by

Please practice time with your children at home! Encourage them to tell you the time every so often- they may be a little unsure with digital as we only introduced it today (Friday). Give them times to plot on a clock and also times to read off a clock. Please do not introduce 24 hour.

The children will need to bring a sock in for Thursday please ( providing resources are delivered by then- that's when we aim to start making them) an adults sock is preferable but please don't go out any buy any!

Your children will come home next week with a list of high frequency words to practice. These are the words they will have got wrong when tested. Please practice these to ensure they become confident and accurate.

Have a lovely weekend and fingers crossed for the rugby!

Maths-

Multiplication and problem solving- try some of these at home- 12x 7= 8x9- true or false?

Tom and Same were arguing- "6x35 is 205" "No you are wrong, 6 x 35 is 210." Who is correct?

Literacy-

We have been looking at play-scripts this week. We looked at how they are set out, their features and had a go at writing our own. Next week we are turning a section from a story into a play-script. We role played a short script too in groups, which was great fun.

In our Big Write on Friday, we began to plan a story about an evacuee. We wrote a powerful opener.

Science-

We focused on observing results this week and trying to conclude what we found out.  

ICT- we began a new unit this week on Databases. We began to talk about Databases that are held, e.g the police, doctors surgery, Mrs Appleton and the office etc. We learnt about two new words, 'records' and 'fields' and began to make a class Database.  Talk about these at home. Have you got examples that you could share?

Welsh- asking questions and answering about our pets. "Oes anifail anwes da ti? "Oes, mae... da fi or Nag oes, does ddim ..... da fi." We will be doing more on this next week too. 

Have a lovely weekend.
