Weekly Learning- W/B 1st June
For Maths, we would like you to continue with the Maths Home Learning Lessons and Activities on the White Rose Learning Hub. This week start at 'Summer Week 5' (Week beginning 18th May), and, as before, complete one lesson and activity per day, recording your learning in your red learning journals. The activity sheets will be uploaded daily onto the Classdojo class story. The link for the videos is below:
In addition to this, and your other Daily Learning, we have some other challenges to keep you busy.
Monday / Tuesday/ Wednesday
Your writing task this week is to write an acrostic poem related to nature. You need to read and respond to the different PDF presentations and follow the instructions given– Do not try and do all this in one go (Try lesson 1 Monday, 2 on Tuesday and 3 on Wednesday). Do things in the following order:
Monday- Lesson 1
- Slide 1 & 2- We would like you to go on a nature walk around your local environment or a different location and find as many objects related to nature. Fill in something you see, smell or touch for every letter of the alphabet.
- Slide 3- For example, you could see a stone, you could smell grass and touch the bark of a tree. S is for stone, G is for grass and B is for bark of a tree.
- Slide 4- Challenge is can you find all objects on your journey for each letter of the alphabet?
Tuesday- Lesson 2
- Slide 1- In this lesson, we would like you to look at the features of an acrostic poem and plan your acrostic poem.
- Slide 2/3- Look at the acrostic poems. Discuss with an adult what you think an acrostic poem is and the different features of a poem.
- Slide 4- Look at the different features of an acrostic poem.
- Slide 5- Begin to plan your acrostic poem. The first step is thinking what word you would like your poem to spell out. Reminder this needs to be a word where you can use all the different objects in your poem for example: your acrostic poem could spell out ‘OUTDOORS’ OR ‘MY JOURNEY’. It could even spell out the location or place you went to.
- Slide 6- After you have thought of the word you would like your acrostic poem to spell out, using your alphabet list can you plan your acrostic poem. Brainstorm all your ideas in your red journal.
- Slide 7- Can you use alliteration and add an adjective to your object to describe it using the same letter it begins with? E.g. bumpy bark, green grass, smooth stone. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO DO THIS FOR EVERY OBJECT.
- Slide 8- Once you have planned out your adjectives, start to build upon these and make up sentences.
- Slide 9- Challenge- Can you plan in any similes to your poem? E.g.As sharp as a razor.
Wednesday- Lesson 3
- Slides 1- Remind yourself what an acrostic poem is.
- Slide 2- Look at the model on the slide and the layout of an acrostic poem.
- Slide 3- Write your acrostic poem using your plan.
- Mrs Martin and Mr Creagh-Barry are looking forward to reading your acrostic poems on Classdojo.
Wednesday- Geography lesson 1
For geography, we would like you to create a birds-eye view map. Either you can create a birds-eye map of the map we have provided OR you can create a map of your favourite place. This is not any ordinary map, we would like you to use a range of natural resources e.g. sticks, leaves, flowers, stones to create your map. First go on a walk and collect as many natural resources as possible (maybe use some of the ones you found for your poem?)
Once you have collected a range of natural resources use the PDF to remind yourself of the different features you would find on a map e.g. symbols, compass, key etc. Using the features can you draw a birds-eye view map of the map we have provided or a map of your favourite place?
We would love you to have some fun and create your own wind chimes using a range of different sized sticks for your garden/ outdoor space. These are going to be the colours of a rainbow to make them bright and colourful. There are step-to-step instructions below and these will be uploaded onto Classdojo.
Please complete the comprehension activity uploaded to Class Story. The reading comprehension will be about the story ‘The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse’ and it will be clearly labelled which activity is appropriate for your child depending on the book band they are currently reading. Write the answers in full sentences into your red journal then take a photo and upload it.
Enjoy the beautiful weather and venture outdoors for another walk. This time we would like you to go on an outdoors treasure hunt and find the objects using the clues given.
For geography, we would like you to continue building upon your learning of map skills. Using the natural resources you collected on Wednesday and the picture of your birds-eye view map we would like you to create a map on the ground using the resources you collected. Use the image to help give you some inspiration. They have used twigs to make a building and twigs/ pinecones to make car park spaces. Mrs Martin and Mr Creagh-Barry are looking forward to seeing your maps.
As an on-going, weekly challenge, we would like you to continue with your learning of Spanish. Hopefully you have been learning to count from 1-10, learning the alphabet, introducing yourself, saying how old you are in Spanish and have learnt the days and months of the year in Spanish. To challenge you further we would like you to say how say how you feel and learn some emotions in Spanish.
Use the links from the Oak National Academy:
Record a video of yourself saying how you are feeling in Spanish.
