Reading for 15 minutes 

Your work yesterday was fantastic.  You created some fantastic dialogue between Father Christmas and the other characters in Narnia.  Today I would like us to focus particularly on our punctuation before or after the speech marks.  

For example

" Run !" shouted Lucy.  -- notice the exclamation mark before I use the speech marks.

Quietly she whispered, " It's Aslan." - notice the comma before the speech marks.

I will be looking closely today to make sure you don't forget your punctuation and capital letters.

Happy Birthday Florence Nightingale: 

Today is a significant day because it is Florence Nightingale's bicentennial year, meaning it is 200 years since her birth. To commemorate this the World Health Organisation (WHO) have designated 2020 as the first ever global Year of the Nurse and Midwife. Read up on Florence Nightingale here and listen to this song here. 

The nursing profession has changed over time. Today nurses are thoroughly trained and usually specialise in a certain area. Nursing is a very rewarding and varied profession.

Today we celebrate the Lady of the Lamp who brought love, compassion and hope to the sick very much like our nurses today.

Today I would like you to design a lamp for Florence and display it celebrating the birth of an amazing woman and celebrating the support of all of our NHS workers who like Florence work tirelessly to help the sick.

Plant 2 has been deprived of water and hasn't grown, it definitely has more leaves that have brown and crispy, they are dying. 

Plant 3 has been kept in the dark. It too hasn't grown but again more leaves are yellow and brown and they are dying off.

Please watch this presentation.

I have put a video on your classdojo pages of me asking the question. I also tell you my date of birth, can you work it out? Send me a video of you asking the question and telling me your birthday.

Practice breaking it up into syllables…’Quelle…est...la…date..de…ton…ann…i…ver…saire?

Ask people in your house the question. Can you work out what their answers should be in French.

You could make a birthday card for someone to give to them on their birthday with the words Bon Anniversaire.

 VE Day

 Hopefully you are well on your way to getting ready for your VE Day celebrations. You have designed some bunting and coloured in your own Tommy to put in your window. This poster would look great coloured in and displayed in one of your windows too.

Those of you who are following my investigation, below are photographs of the plants I have taken today. Fill in your Record Sheet, describing what you can see is happening to the plants. 

 

 

Plant 1 is getting watered, has space, soil, warmth, light and air and is growing well and strong.

Plant 2 is not getting watered. It has leaves that are going brown and dying, it is looking listless and a bit limp.

Plant 3 is being kept in the dark. can you see how some of its leaves are changing colour? They are going yellowy brown.

 Note down anything else you notice on your Record sheet.

Here is a nice clip to watch that explains what plants need to survive.

This week we will be exploring the second pillar of Islam.  The second pillar is Salah – Prayer

 

Watch the clip below - Kaisan explains and demonstrates his prayers to Allah - Click here

(This is a copy of the address just in-case the link does not work)

Muslims pray five times a day. This is known as Salah and it is one of the five pillars of Islam. Muslims are called to pray at dawn, midday, afternoon, after sunset and a night. Besides standing, you bow and touch the ground with your forehead. Prayers are said facing towards Mecca.

 

Muslims believe that prayer is their way of connecting with God, being near to Him and to thank Him and to ask for His forgiveness and to try and prevent them from committing any other sins.

Watch the clip below:

If you have time, you could make sure you have had a go at the maths games I set for you yesterday and of course don't forget to play your Times Tables Rockstars. 

Art.

In our history lessons we will be learning about the Roman army, so you will each need to design a shield. what would legionaries have used shields for? Can you find out about 'testudo' - (tortoise formation).

Look at the sheet of Roman shieldlks2_roman_blkc_invasion_s1_resource.pdf designs, can you see the similarities? All are red and yellow, have a central metal boss and have two lines of reflective symmetry.

Designs include wings, lightning, shells, arrows, etc. You will need to try keep to these rules to create an authentic looking shield.

You can draw your design on paper or if you have the materials you could try making your shield with cardboard and then paint or colour your design. 

I can't wait to see them.

I've seen some great work on plants from last week. If you haven't already, please post me the work and any photos on Classdojo.

Let's play a game to help us remember what we learnt from last week. Matching Game

This week we are going to be looking at what plants need to grow. Presentation. 

Remember Mrs Nerg to help you remember the 7 living processes. If you can set up one of the investigations at home. If you can't don't worry I've set some up. Your task is to fill out the Investigation Planner and over the next few weeks record what you see on your Record sheet.

 

 

The first photo shows 3 plants I've bought. Unfortunately I couldn't get all the same plants. The first plant is going to get all the things a plant needs in order for it to grow.

The next plant is going to be deprived of water and the third plant is going to go with out light, so I've put it in a shoebox so it is in the dark. I will put all the plants in the same place. They all have space, soil, air and warmth. I will take photos every day so that you can see what is happening to them and you can record your observations on your Record Sheet or in your books.

P.E.

Have a go at creating your own obstacle course. Think about the skills you could practice, like throwing, catching, balancing, hitting a target, running, jumping....the list is endless! Time yourself, can you beat other members of your family. I'll look forward to seeing them on Classdojo.

Good afternoon!! Hurrah it's our second history lesson. It was lovely to see some of your work on Classdojo, keep it coming. I'm very proud of you.

Okay so what do you know about the Roman Empire? Do you know any key people or events from this time? 

What would you like to find out about the Romans or this period in history? Please think of a question you'd like answered, send them to me and then we can try and find the answers over the next weeks. 

Today we are going to learn about the Roman Invasions of Britain.

Please have a look at the new Science Knowledge Organiser, you’ll find it on our class page. Read through it over the week. Get someone to test you on some of the information.

Watch this power point presentation.

 

Now name the parts of the plant here

Using the power point or any other websites/books you’d like, research the main jobs of the roots, stem, leaves and flower. Then make your own Plant folding leaflet, click here

P.E.

Create a dance to show the different parts of a plant. Think about the jobs of the different parts in your dance. Can you find some appropriate music to go with it?

Wednesday 15th April

Good morning everyone !  I was very impressed with all of the amazing work you have been doing at home and sharing it with us.  Keep up the good work.

So let's get started today with some exercise, whether this is joining in with Joe Wicks or some Yoga. Cosmic kids Yoga has some good videos and you can select difficulty level or perhaps creating your own assault course in the garden.  Let's go !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

English

If you haven't already done so watch the next instalment of Narnia on the ClassDojo.

Yesterday we heard Lucy tell her brothers and sister that the Queen, the witch, has made Narnia always winter and never Christmas.  Could you imagine it being winter and never Christmas ?  It would be like it always being Easter and no Easter eggs !  It's just not right.

Today I want you to think of that phrase Always winter and never Christmas and I want you to think of a situation where the good thing is missing.  See the attached sheet here

 

Maths

Complete at least 5 minutes on Times Tables Rockstars

We are going to continue to explore money and decimals.  Remember when when you are writing money as a decimal, you must remember your place value. 

For example 3 pounds and 6 pence- how would I write this. 

  • First I would ask myself how many full pounds do I have ?  £3
  • Next how many pennies do I have ? 6p  
  • What doe 6p really mean ?  It means I have 6/100 pennies
  • So I would write it as £3.06    NOT £3.6

So today table 1 and 4 you are going to explore counting values of money here

Table 2 and 3 you are going to continue to explore decimals looking closely at the place value of the digits here

 

Topic

Our new topic for this term is….. Roman Britain. Can’t wait to get started on such an exciting and interesting topic. This week we are going to look at how Rome began, the story that is told to explain how Rome developed into such a big city as well as what archaeologists think happened.

 

Some stories from history are just that: ‘stories’. They are not true but are passed on and form an important part of the culture and beliefs from that time. Read the story below that describes how Rome came about.

Read the story of Romulus and Remus here and complete the task attached

Worksheet 2

 

French.

I can count up to 20 in French and recognise the French words.

First let’s revise the numbers 0 – 10. Have a go at one or as many of these activities as you like.

French numbers 0-10 match numbers.

French numbers 0-10 memory match game

1-10 crossword.

 

Take a look at this Numbers in French 1-30 word mat here

Look closely at the numbers 11-20. Can you see how in the numbers 17 -19 –dix is used. Dix = 10 so dix-sept = 10 and 7, dix-huit = 10 and eight etc

Now have a go at practising counting from 11-20. Remember to use the online translator to help you say the numbers in French correctly.

Good Morning Everyone!

It was lovely to receive work from some of you yesterday by email, I enjoyed reading your fact files. Keep sending them to me. 

Thought we'd start with the Topic Challenge I set for you yesterday, I wonder which of the options you chose and what your reasons were?

Things you might have considered... How good are their map-reading skills? Would sending one or two people off in the dark put them in greater danger? Have they enough equipment to divide up between them? 

In the end, if all four members of the group stayed together they might be safer and could either wait for help to arrive or find a way down in daylight. 

 

Now let's get started with today. Don't forget to get the day off to a good start with some exercise, we're loving the Joe Wicks 9am workout in my house.

English:

Finally, draw a picture of what you think the white witches house would look like.

English:

Today we will be exploring alphabetical order.

When creating a glossary it is essential that it is organised alphabetically.  When organising words alphabetically firstly we look at the first letter, then the second, then the third and so on.....

Complete the worksheet to remind ourselves how to organise words in alphabetical order

Worksheet 1 click here

Worksheet 1 PDF version

When creating a glossary not only are the words organised alphabetically, but alongside the key word is a definition.  Using a dictionary (if you don't have a dictionary you could use https://kids.wordsmyth.net/we/ ) organise the key words in alphabetical order and find there definitions.

Science

In Science this term we are going to be learning all about Plants. The children will learn about the parts of a plnat and the different jobs these parts do. They will learn about the life cycle of a plant and the role of the different parts of a flower. They will carry out exciting investigations to help their understanding of how water is transported in a plant and carry out investigations into what a plant needs to grow.

                                                                                                                            

 

 

 

   History

  Our topic for this term is Romans in Britain. we will explore the invasions of the Romans and their strong army. On the other side we will look at how they created many of the roads we still have today and be amazed by their engineering and constuction skills by looking at aqueducts, Roman towns, Roman Baths....  We will also discover what they did for fun, make our own chariots for racing and create our own mosaics. 

                                                                                                                                                                                             

R.E

This term we will be exploring how Christians and Muslims show how they are thankful.

 

 

 

Computing

The children will explore how to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour and identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.  

The children will also be exploring how to produce a poster ( digital publishing), create and create and present a powerpoint.

                                                                   

 French

This Summer term the children will continue to learn common French phrases and continuously revise the basics from last term. They will lcontinue to learn numbers to help us count up to 50 and revise the months of the year. This will then help them to be able to ask people when their birthday is and to be able to tell people their own birth date. We will then learn some of the colours and make our own French Rainbows to put up in our windows to inspire hope at this time. The main focus will be on speaking the language, through songs, rhymes, role play and games.   

 Design Technology

This subject will be linked to our History topic this term. 

 For DT the children's task is to design and make a Roman chariot and then they will choose to make  a model showing the cross section of a Roman road, a section of Hadrian's Wall, a Roman Bathhouse or a Roman building.

Obviously it will all depend on what materilas and equipment the children have at home                                                                                      

Music    

The children will continue to learn the recorder.

                                     

P.E kit

We would like to encourage each child to do some form of exercise every day when home learning. This can be following Joe Wicks, or doing some yoga, a dance from Just Dance or going for a walk or bike ride with family members. 

Each week I will also add some ideas for the children to have a go at, just for something different, could be a skipping challenge, designing and doing their own Obstacle course to developping athletic skills.

 

 

P.E kit should be brought to school on a Monday and left in school for the half term. Children should have a white T-shirt, black shorts and suitable shoes. 

                                                                                                                                                                  

Water bottles

Water bottles should be brought to school on a Monday and taken home every night to be washed. Please note that juice is not permitted in school. 

Homework

Children who read at home five times a week will receive  recognition for their efforts. Fluent readers do not always need to read aloud, but if they are reading independently please still sign the reading record and check from time to time to show that your child is reading accurately and understanding what they are reading. Strive for 5!

Children receive a set of spellings each Thursday. Children will also be expected to learn their times tables  and may be given additional pieces of classwork. Please check your child's reading folder regularly. Homework is due back in on a Wednesday.
