Year 2 w/e 12.4.19

This week we have been

Writing kenning and rhyming/ acrostic poems

Easter reasoning activities involving money

Making Easter cards and finding out about the Easter story

Evaluating our sock puppets

We have also been learning the songs for our assembly wit Y1 on May 20th at 9.30am. Please continue to practise-
What a wonderful world
Animals in danger.

Your child will have come home with their script. Please learn the lines. In terms of costume, they can wear something as close to their animal. If they are not an animal they can wear their own clothes if they wish.

Enjoy the Easter break!

Year 1

Good evening,

 

Have a fantastic Easter break.

As the next half term is short we are carrying over the “our world” topic and shall be looking at animal habitats. This also ensures the theme will be in the children’s minds when it comes to their class assembly on the 20th of May.

 Over Easter could you please practise their two assembly songs with them. It’s a wonderful world and reduce, reuse recycle song.

A final activity is to have a look at set two and three sounds over the break. For some this will be revision and for others set 3 sounds will be fairly new to them. Set three sounds are confusing at first because this will be the first time that they come across different graphemes, how the sounds are spelt, for the same sounds A good website to access these sounds would be: http://www.brizeprimary.org/documents/phonics_sounds_set_1__2_and_3-2.pdf

A fun game could be to cut up set 2 and 3 sounds and they pair the graphemes, the way the sounds are spelt, that sound the same.

All the best,

The year 1 team.

How to help your child at home-

In the holidays do lots of reading. Look out for different types of punctuation. Perhaps visit the local library. Think of some lovely interesting words to describe Spring. For eg-  Dancing daffodils waving in the soft breeze. Colourful blue bells standing elegantly in the woods.
Have lots of fun in the Easter holidays and do what makes you feel happy. Perhaps you could draw me a lovely picture of one of your sunny days and we can talk about it in school when you come back.
I look forward to seeing you in 2 weeks for a fun packed term. Come back refreshed and energetic.

Thank you for your support and enjoy the holidays.

I have also set mymaths activities this week and it would be great if you could encourage your children to have a go.

Remember how to use figurative language in poetry - we discussed this as a class.  Have a go at writing another poem at home - you can base it on the one you started in school or write a new poem.  Bring them into share with the class.

What do the four purposes mean to you as a learner? - next week we are going to be putting the statements into 'child-friendly' sentences to display and use in class.  Start having a go at this at home - how many can you remember?

Year 4 Home Learning- Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips W/E 5.4.19


Maths-
We have been working through some test style questions this week in preparation for the National Tests after Easter. These have included a mixture of questions on all areas of maths covered.

Some examples to practise-
Doubling and halving 2 and 3 digit numbers
Clock work- drawing hands on a clock and writing digital for given times
Putting numbers on a number line, including negative numbers
Rounding to nearest multiple of 10

Literacy- We looked at figurative language used in poetry, e.g similes, metaphors and personification. Next week we will be looking at some famous War poems and gathering ideas for writing our own. Try writing some ideas using the three types of language based on World War 2, e.g the soldiers fought like brave lions. (simile)

Science- Thank you for sending back in the water survey sheet, we have used them several times for data handling, adding totals, working out costs etc. They have proved really useful and great for the children to have a real context for their learning.
Can you think of some ways that you can save water at home? Bring ideas in for Thursday.

ICT- We began to look at creating a branching database, we looked at effective yes/no questions used to sort pictures this week. We used animals and used yes/no questions to reach each picture. Try making one at home, the pictures can be of anything. Fruit, kitchen instruments, sweets etc. as long as the children can think of obvious features for each. E.g a good question for a sweet would be- is it round or is it in a wrapper? rather than something like is it chewy/sour?

Have a lovely weekend.

Mrs Phillips
