Reception Home Learning 10.7.20

Reception Class Friday 10th July

To the Parents and children of Reception Class. I think the weather is going to be good on the weekend, so have some fun.


"Children see magic because they look for it."

Christopher Moore

 

Literacy

A Poem using personification.

Explain to your child that personification gives objects human qualities. (The children always love this!). Just imagine if everything in the classroom was real. So chattering pencils, sleeping computer, laughing crayons, screeching chairs, giggling books, snoring rubbers etc. Encourage your child to give you their own ideas. You can choose to use a different place if you like. If you write down your child's suggestions, so the effort is taken out of the writing to begin with. You can help your child to give suggestions too. Number each suggestion. So when your child says- chattering pencils, you can say that is number 3. Remember to use a new line for each sentence and start with the verb. So-

Chattering pencils in the pot

Snoring rubbers on the floor

Giggling books on the shelf

Encourage your child to use the words you have written down and their phonic knowledge to write the short sentences. If it is too much of a challenge to write their own sentences, then you write them down for your child to copy underneath. But encourage them to write initial sounds and high frequency words. Always read back the completed sentences.

 

Numeracy

Timing activities

All Children- https://www.topmarks.co.uk  Telling the time. There are different levels, so use- read the time to the hour on an anologue clock.

Most Children- https://www.topmarks.co.uk  Teaching clock. Use the 1 hour one, to read the time.

Challengehttps://www.topmarks.co.uk Telling the time in words. Read the time to the hour.

 

Topic- Over the week

Van Gogh

I am going to try and bring the sun back by studying the artist Van Gogh and in particular "The Sunflowers." Perhaps you can show your child this painting on the internet. This painting is very famous. Look at its bright yellows and the way each sunflower is painted differently. Van Gogh also lived in a yellow house. Do you like the painting? Where would you hang this painting in your house? I would hang it in my bedroom, so everyday I would wake up and see it straight away. Or maybe I would hang it in the hall, so that everyone that came to my house would see it too. Van Gogh used lots of shades of yellow. How do you think he created various shades of the same colour? Perhaps you could use a paper plate and create various shades, just like Van Gogh.  

Can you find 5 facts about Van Gogh, one each day? If the writing is too much of a challenge, perhaps you could write a simple sentence and leave space for your child to write underneath. Help your child to read aloud the sentence you have written.

There is an animated short story on YouTube- Art with Mati and Dada about Van Gogh.


Creative-over the week.

"I dream my painting and I paint my dream."

Vincent Van Gogh

Thank you for those that shared "The Kelly" by Anna Blatman. I was really impressed.

Now we are going to create Van Gogh's sunflowers. If you get a big sheet of paper- ideally A3. As we have done before, paint the paper with a colour wash (watery paint, any colour). Make sure you create the flowers on portrait. When it is dry, draw a line on the bottom third and then draw your vase. After that draw 14 random circles of different sizes all over the paper. So some are high and some are low. Then you can paint the bottom third a colour of your choice and when that is dry, paint your vase. This can be a 2 tone colour or just 1. I don't want to be too descriptive as it will be your own version. These are just some ideas. When this is dry you can begin to paint your sunflowers using various shades of yellows and orange. So you can paint the middles and then soft strokes for the petals. Children tend not to like painting the seeded sunflowers, so that is fine. You can then add soft strokes of green to create petals. Voila, I can't wat to see this.


Mindfulness

Everything Changes

Have you ever noticed that things change every day, like the weather? Perhaps a tree has a new bud or a flower has wilted. Perhaps your class looks different. Some changes are big and some are small. You might feel happy about some changes and sad about others. That's okay.

Look around and find one thing that has stayed the same and something else that has changed.

Maybe the sunny sky of the morning is still sunny. Maybe a bird you saw outside has flown away. What do you see?

Write or tell someone how you feel about these changes.

                                                                                           

Weekly Welsh-

If you are not sure of pronunciation, you can always check on google translation. Take it in turns with your child to say the language patterns-

Introduce- Oes llygaid……………… 'da ti ?  (Have you got………..eyes?). Don't forget to say the colour in the space.

Answer- oes/nag oes   (Yes/no).

So for e.g.-  Oes llygaid glas 'da ti? Nag oes.

Oes llygaid brown 'da ti? Oes

You could do a survey finding out from your extended family their eye/hair colour. You could do this by using a tally just like you did last week. Then input your data on Just2easy to make a graph. (Details how to do this is on last week's numeracy planning).

 

My email address is- MilesD8@hwbmail.net if you need to contact me.

Thank you and keep yourselves safe.

Mrs Miles

Year 2 Friday 10 July 2020

Literacy and Topic

Year 1 and Year 2 will continue their sessions with Colette from The Wye & Usk Foundation. Your activities from the previous sessions have looked fabulous well done to you all.  I have sent some of the work to Colette who said that it had made her 'lockdown' so keep up the great work. Today we will take part in the final session. Look out for a special surprise from Trellech at the end of the clip! All the activities can be found at: https://www.wyeuskfoundation.org/education 

Session 4: Amazing adaptations! How creatures are suited and adapted to survive where they live. 

 

Imagine being able to breathe through your skin like the leech or to spin your own silk with your mouth to make your very own shelter like cased caddisfly larvae!  

Our river creatures really do have the most amazing adaptations. Many animals' adaptations are to help them for find or catch food, like having special beaks, or sharp claws, or fins or webbed feet to help them move easily through the water, lots are well camouflaged to hide from predators.When salmon like Sioni and Sam are in the parr stage of their life cycle ...they are well parr-fectly camouflaged.  

All you need to do: 

Thinking and making fins on, can you…  

Create and name your own Unusual Usk or Weird Wye river creature?  

Design your own imaginary animal that is perfectly suited to living in the river that's nearest to you.  

It could be a combination of a freshwater shrimp, a bullhead, an otter and a heron, anything you like! 

You just need to draw it, make it from craft materials or describe it to a grown up and think of a name that best describes it!  

Before you start making or drawing it or think about… how it moves, breathes, hunts/catches/finds its food, protects itself from predators, where it lives, what it eats 

 Save your work  in your folder or email it to us! Colette would also love to see your work.. 

 

 

As part of your Big Write write a non- fiction report about what your imaginary animal.  

Please share any work you do with us via pupil folders, email and/ or twitter. Don't forget to include us @trellechprimary and @WUFoundation, we would love to see what we have been up to! 



Maths

Friday's Maths consist of our online Learn its and Clic tests, however I will be adding paper versions onto the Y2 shared folder on HWB instead
Clic tests- the children should have no more than 10-15 minutes maximum to complete these. They can do workings out if need be on the sheet or on a separate sheet. Just a reminder- question 1 is for them to partition the number- so what is the value of each? e.g 36- 3=30 6=6. A lot of the children assume it is halving the number because of the way it is laid out! 
Learn its- these are timed at 30 seconds. The children are used to this so please ensure it is only 30 seconds! The learn its are to develop their quick recall and the sums given are the number facts that the children should be confident with to answer rapidly. You may decide to give your child 1 minute and see how many they can complete as there are new levels on there. 
SAFE- the children haven't yet completed these but they involve other maths covered in school aside from basic number. The children have covered these areas so should be able to answer some. Again I would say no more than 10-15 minutes.  I would now try to reduce this time to 5-10 minutes 

Bronze- Clic 1/ Learn its 1 / SAFE 1
Silver- Clic 2/ Learn its 2/ SAFE 2 
Gold- Clic 3/ Learn its 3/ SAFE 3 

You are of course welcome to complete all of these challenges if you wish!

Topic
On the Year 2 shared folder on HWB are some activities from the RSPCA linked to habitats and animals and their homes. You will take on the role as an 'estate agent' thinking about which home/ environment/ habitat is most suited to the animal of your choice. 


PE

Take part in a Joe Wickes workout on YouTube or relax with some yoga and meditation using the breathing techniques learnt with Mrs Ryder. 


Have a nice and hopefully sunny weekend!

Mrs. Hassall

Numeracy:  

Today I have been able to add the Big Maths Challenges to our Class Folder within our Hwb Classroom.                                                                                                                                                          

There are 3 available: Clic, Learn Its and Safe- we usually complete CLic and Learn Its in Week One and SAFE during Week 2, so please don't feel you need to do them all today. They are there to check how the children are doing and identify any gaps in learning, so let them try on their own. The Learn Its should be completed in less than 2 minutes as it checks our recall of known number facts. I have also added an editable version to save you printing them off it helps. (In the pupil folder on Just2easy).  If you have any problems accessing them, please let me know and I can email them to you- (peacockk2@hwbcymru.net). 


Topic 

Humanities and Health and Well-Being 

This month is Plastic Free July. Make a pledge to share with us how you and your family will pledge to reduce the amount of Plastic you use.  

 

Enjoy your weekend, stay safe and see you Monday!
