Friday 23rd April 2021

Welcome to Term 5! We have had a very happy week: the highlight being a visit from the Story Museum in Oxford to create our story for the term. I a sure it is going to be a great term- we have lots of exciting learning planned for the children.

As always please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns.

Wednesday 10th March 2021

 

Bats have had an exciting day! We found footprints in the classroom! We wondered who's footprints they were and why they were at school. Next we found a letter from a Gorilla! We went hunting for clues to see where the Gorilla what been, then we made more nests for it because we found out that the one the Gorilla had made was broken.

 

 

Welcome back Bats!

It is lovely to have you all back in class.

Below is a home learning grid, if for any reason you need to learn from home.

Happy Friday Bats! I have really enjoyed music week and I hope you have too. The work I have received has been wonderful, I'm very proud of you all for working so hard.

I will see you at 9.15 for our Live Lesson.

Have a super day

 

Mrs Stewart

 

Live Lesson follow up.

Create your own story (spoken or written) by changing the characters of Peer and the Trolls/ Mountain King as we did in the Live Lesson. Think about why your new Peer has gone into the castle, and why the new Trolls are chasing him/ her. I could be a good reason, if you want it too. You could draw a story map to help you remember it, as you will need your new story for this afternoon's session.

Maths

see attached.

Phonics

Have a go at the tricky word conga, and dicey spellings or tricky word snap/ pairs with the tricky words we have already learned.

Afternoon activity

Perform your new story to the music using your instrument to your family (or maybe other family online).

I suggest you have a rehearsal before the performance so you can remember it really well. You could even make some puppets for the characters if you were feeling creative! 

Good morning Bats! I hope you had fun designing and making your troll yesterday. I am looking forward to seeing photos of them. I have started our class gallery and would love to add more of your wonderful work.

I will see you at 9.15 for our Live Lesson.

Have a lovely day,


Mrs Stewart

 

 

Live Lesson follow up

I would like you to write me a description of your troll. Use the ideas that we talked about in the Live Lesson to give you a start, but you can be as imaginative as you like, as long as the reader can imagine what your troll is like!

You could use:

adjectives

similes

Try to use ambitious vocabulary to tell us exactly what you mean. For example, you could write 'My troll is bad'.  But you could think of other words that mean 'bad' such as 'mean' 'unkind' 'naughty'. So your sentence could change to :

'My troll is mean.'

To improve it even more you could add a simile:

'My troll is as mean as .......'

And add adjectives:

'My grumpy troll is as mean as.....'

 

Then please remember the 'All the Time Washing Line' too.

Use your phonics

use finger spaces

use capital letters and full stops

use posh handwriting (and no capitals in the middle of words!)

 

Maths

Phonics

I would like you to have a go at a different game today.

https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/5

Afternoon activity

Using items from home I would like you to create your own instrument. It could be a:

 shaker  (pot with rice in),

 guitar (box with elastic bands)

drum (tin with a balloon lid)

or you could look at this website for ideas. But PLEASE just use things you have at home!

https://artsycraftsymom.com/diy-musical-instruments-for-kids-to-make-and-play/

 

We will be using them in our Live Lesson tomorrow, so bring them with you!

Wednesday 27th January 2021

Good morning Bats! I hope you are ready and raring to go for another fun day. I will see you at 9.15 for our Live Lesson. Please remember to send me your favourite piece of work from this week so I can include it in the class gallery. I have received some super work so far, thank you.

Have a good day,

Mrs Stewart x

 

Live Lesson follow up

I would like you to design a troll of your own! Draw a detailed picture of what it will look like and label the important parts. E.g. warty nose, spiky blue hair, crooked spine.

Think about the character of your troll and try to show it in their appearance. If they are mean and grumpy they might be hunched up, and dressed in dark colours. If they are a cheerful and happy troll, they might have brighter clothes and standing more upright and open. But it is up to you!

Maths

Phonics

Have a go at the following game. See if you can beat your score!

https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/helpAHedgehog/index.html

Phase 3 mixed vowel digraphs is a good recap, but you could do the other ones too, to practise speed reading.

Afternoon activity

Using your design from this morning, have a go at making your troll out of anything you have at home. It could be a painting, junk modelling, lego, leaves, sticks, pine cones anything!

Hello Bats! Hope you are well and happy today, and you are enjoying music week so far. We will have some more fun together at 9.15 in our Live Lesson today. I am looking forward to seeing you then.

Mrs Stewart x

Live lesson follow up

Talk through the story of Peer Gynt and identify the main parts of the story, the create a story map and add labels to explain each part.

Maths

Phonics

Play one of the games you have created in the last 3 weeks to help you practise your phoneme recognition or tricky word reading. For example, snap, bingo, pairs, snakes and ladders.

Afternoon activity

Pretend you are Peer, and act out his journey in your garden (if you can). Try to move like he did- slowly tiptoe to start and building up to running. Imagine you are moving through the castle and forest being chased by the trolls. Finally you are out and free! Phew!

Monday 25th January 2021

Good morning Bats! I hope you have had a lovely weekend, and enjoyed the snow! 

We've got an exciting week ahead, so I hope you are full of beans and ready to go! This week is music week so that will be our main focus, but there will be many other subjects intertwined in your learning too. I will be posting a maths and phonics activity each day alongside the music based ones.

 

I would like you to choose 1 piece of work this week to send to me at:  bats@watlington.oxon.sch.uk

so that I can make a class gallery on the school website to celebrate all your wonderful work!

 

If there are any musical parents who would be brave enough to either play a little tune in our Live Lesson or send in a video to the Bats e mail, so that I can share it in the lessons that would be wonderful. 

 

If you can, it might be worth having this clip ready in case there are any technical issues with the sound.

Mon- Oskar

Tues- Imogen

Wed-Niamh

Thurs-Dexter

Fri- Georgia

Have a great day, and I will see you at 9.15.

Mrs Stewart x

 

Music activity

Time to move! Listen to the music again and see how your body moves to it. What kind of movements might you do? Fast, slow, fluid, jerky? The music repeats so you might repeat some movements. See if you can make up little movement sequences to go with the music sequences.

Phonics

I like sentence substitution and pirate treasure to help you practise your reading, but you can work on any of the games from Phase 5a, or Phase 3 and 4 if you would like to recap previous learning.

Maths

Afternoon activity

I would like you to make a picture to represent the music. Get creative and draw, paint or create a model that shows what you think of when you hear the music.

Think about the colours you choose to show the mood of the music. For example- red might mean angry, and blue could give a calm feeling.

You might want to do a picture or you might want to use shapes and lines to represent the musical phrases.

It is totally up to you, do what the music tells you!

Friday 22nd January 2021

I hope you are full of energy for a good day of learning. I will see you at 9.15 for a Live English Lesson and there are maths activities, phonics and an R.E. lesson for you today.

Have a lovely weekend, and try to get outdoors eve if it is raining. Happy Birthday to Oskar for Sunday!

RE

LO: To understand how Jesus called his disciples.

Jesus needed disciples to help him. He found people who he thought would be good at it and asked them to leave their homes and follow him to tell everyone about God.

In our lives a similar event might be, being invited to sing in a famous band, play football for Liverpool, dance on Strictly, make a Deadly 60 program with Steve Backshall.

Think about what you would do if you were offered that opportunity. What kind of person would you agree to go with? What would make them a good leader?

The clips below will help you understand more.

Hello Bats! I hope you are feeling good today. As you are working so hard at home, I would like to see 2 pieces of work from the next week or two. The first is your favourite piece of work from next week's music week, and the second is your 'Hot Write' which I will explain more about in week 5 and 6. 

 

I'm looking forward to seeing you today for a Live Maths Lesson at 9.15. Get your maths hats ready and I'll see you soon! You have a little treat today- a science lesson from Miss Gardiner! Have fun!

 

If you are interested in the space activities I told you about yesterday, you might be interested to hear that there is a star counting week in February (and a Big Bird Watch next weekend!) Both great for counting skills too!

Here are the links:

English

Today I would like you to think about writing in the present tense.  This means something is happening now.

For example, ‘I am typing’ is happening now. It is in the present tense.

 But ‘I was typing’ has already happened.  It is in the past tense.

‘I will type’ hasn’t happened yet.  It will happen in the future.

The clip below and following quiz will help you.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/z3dbg82

 

We are going to practise the present tense today. I would like you to write these sentences in the present tense (as if you are doing them now).

I will jump in puddles and make big splashes.

Mrs Sterjo went for a walk and heard lots of birds singing.

Fred and Mabel played monopoly together and had lots of fun!

Ella is going to paint a beautiful picture for her Mummy and Daddy.

Addison gave his baby sister lots of cuddles.

Daenerys will bake some chocolate cupcakes.

Alfie went in his garden and ran around at super- fast speed.

Good morning Bats! I hope you are ready for the day ahead. I am looking forward to seeing you at 9.15 for another English Live Lesson. I will put the maths, phonics and jigsaw activities up for you too.

 

I know a lot you are interested in space so I thought I'd mention that CBeebies are having a space week next week and there is a 'Do you know?' space related episode each day. There is also an free online stargazing event run by Oxford University at the weekend.

Have a lovely day.

Mrs Stewart x

 

English

After the live lesson I would like you to choose an animal to draw and then use adjectives to create descriptive phrases to describe your animal.

Think about:

How does it look? What size is it?

     What is its fur or skin like?

What might it feel like?   Soft? Smooth? Rough? Fluffy?

What might it smell like?

What kind of noises does it make? Loud? quiet? high? low?

 

Maths

Today you will be using your knowledge of number facts, addition and subtraction to show the inverse number operation.

We have been learning about the commutative rule which explains that addition number sentences work both ways.  We also know that the rule does NOT work for subtraction number sentences.

Watch the following clips,

 

Here is an example of how to show the inverse number operation.

8 + 2 = 10

2 + 8 = 10

10 – 8 = 2

10 – 2 = 8

 

Choose one or more activities from below.

  1.  Continue to develop your understanding of the maths symbols + and -.  Roll two dice and add the numbers together.  Make sure you write the number sentence.  Then practise your subtraction skills by rolling a die and subtracting that number from 10, then 20.
  2. Make two spinners, the first with numbers to 10, the second write the add and subtract symbols.

Spin the spinners and practise adding or subtracting the numbers together.  You could spin twice for adding and spin once to subtract from 10 or 20.

     3.Answer the following questions and write the 4 number sentences.  There should be two addition and two          subtraction.  You could use Smarties, Skittles or counters to make the number sentences to.  This will help you to understand what you are writing.

10+6=, 17+2=, 15+5=, 14+3=, 21+2=, 12+4=, 16+2=, 13+7=, 20+0=, 22+4=, 19+3=, 11+8=,

See attached for an extension task, if you feel very confident using the number track.

 

Jigsaw

Jerrie Cat would like you to think about how to break down your goal into small pieces so you can tell you are learning.

For example, when I am learning my ukulele these are the steps I will take:

1 How to hold it and where to put my fingers.

2 How to make different notes by changing where I put my fingers.

3 Remember the order of the notes to make a song.

4 Practise so I can move my hand quickly to change the notes at the right time so the song sounds right.

 

I have to do these steps in order or it won’t work. I can’t play a song if I don’t know how to hold the ukulele.

Think about making a jam sandwich. Can you say the instructions for this? Have a go at making your sandwich following your instructions. If you get it muddled will it work?

 

Now think about a goal you have and try to decide on 3 or 4 steps you need to do to achieve it.

Art

It’s time for the fun part now! You can start to make your puppet! Measure your hand so you know how big your material needs to be and you can find a piece big enough. Fold the material in half so you have a back and a front, then draw round your hand.  Cut out your material. Now you can start sewing!

1 Tie a knot at one end of your thread.

2 Push the needle up from underneath and pull the thread through.

3 Leave a gap and push the needle down through the material.

4 Repeat

 Just spend around 10 mins on sewing, it does take a lot of concentration. There will be time next week to finish it off.

Today I would like  you to hunt for the features of a non-chronological report.  You could use the attached powerpoint to help you too. Try watching the video on witches which will help to explain the features. 

 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-identify-features-of-an-information-text-c5gkec

 

Now find some non-fiction texts and try to spot the following,

-Title

-Introduction

-Headings

-Paragraphs

-Factual sentences

-Present tense

-Technical words

-Picture/diagrams and captions

-Rhetorical questions

 

Talk with a grown up about how these features are used and what they are needed for.

 

Topic

Start by trying to work out what the following image is...

https://explorify.wellcome.ac.uk/en/activities/zoom-in-zoom-out/prints

 

You will be zooming in and out of the image – starting very close and stepping back slowly.

1. Start by asking:

  • What do you think the image is and why?
  • What does the image remind you of and why?

2. Every time you zoom out:

  • Can you describe the colours, shapes and textures?
  • What do you think the image is now – have you changed your mind?

 

I found some poo in my garden this morning! Have a close look and see what you notice. Now look at the close up photos. Look very closely and see you what you can see.  If we were at school you would be able to touch (with gloves!) and smell it so see if you can imagine that too!

Try to answer these questions, and maybe come up with some of your own.

What can you see in the poo?

What kind of creature might have left them?

What clues give you that idea? You can try to complete the classifying grid to help you. Can you remember what herbivore, omnivore and carnivore mean?

 

 

Poo pictures!

Keep practising our model text, using the actions and the text map to help you. Try ‘stepping it out’. This is when you break the text into parts (Introduction, appearance, diet, interesting fact) to make it easier to remember. You say the ‘introduction’ part, then take a step and say the  ‘appearance’ part, take a step say the  ‘diet’ part and so on.

This video gives a good demonstration.

Good morning Bats, I hope you are well and happy today. Have you tried any of the PE with Joe sessions? Maybe you could give it a go, my family love them! Exercise makes you feel good, and gives you energy!

I will see you at 9.15 for our Live English Lesson.

Mrs Stewart

 

English 

 

Practise reciting our text using the actions we decided on in the Live Lesson. Have a couple of goes and then see what you can remember without support from your grown up. Keep practising it everyday so you know it off by heart.

It would be helpful if your grown up could print off the model text and text map and keep it safe as we will be using it a lot. If this is a problem please let me know.

 

Maths

Please see attached resources.

 

Afternoon activity

 

Look at your designs from last week and chose your favourite. This will be the one you make. Draw your chosen design out again, adding any extra ideas or taking away things you have decided against. Now label the parts of your puppet with the materials you will need. Make a list of the items you will need and over the next week collect them up.  Please don’t buy anything, please use items you already have at home. Save your pennies!

Good morning Bats, I hope you have had a good sleep and are ready for another day. It was great to hear about the animals you have been finding out about yesterday. Have fun making your fact page today!

I will see you at 9.15 for a Live Maths lesson.

Mrs Stewart

Maths

See attached documents below

English

Today we would like you to use all the research you have done for the last 2 days to write a fact page about your animal.

Remember:

  • Your facts must be true!
  • You should try to make your fact page look like a real non- fiction book, using the devices you have seen (headings, labels, pictures, diagrams). There are some examples attached.
  • You need to try to remember the items on our ‘All the time washing line’
  1. Use your phonics
  2. Finger spaces
  3. Capital letters and full stops (and other punctuation!)
  4. Posh  cursive handwriting
  5. Sitting your letters on the line

 

Afternoon activity

 

           Jerrie Cat is wondering how you are getting on with the challenge you set yourself. Look back at               your record and think about how you are getting on.

 If you have improved, how do you feel? Do you need to challenge yourself more by making the task harder or will you aim to do more in the time limit?

If you are finding your challenge a bit tricky, how do you feel? Have a thing about how you can help yourself? Can you ask for help? Can you ‘dig deep’ and find some determination to keep trying? Try not to give up, but maybe change your challenge slightly so it is more achievable.

 

The important thing about this challenge is your response to it, not how successful you are. If it’s tricky but you persevere and get there in the end, that is great learning. It feels hard at the time, but you feel fantastic when you achieve!

Hello Bats, I hope you had a good day yesterday, and are ready for another fun filled day of learning! I will see you at 9.15 for our live English lesson. Parents, could I request that you are around to help your child unmute if necessary until they get used to it please. I am trying to get a balance between quiet times so all the children can hear me, but I also want to hear their voices and get the children as actively involved as possible. I'm sure this will come with time and experience (for me and the children!) but your support with this will hopefully speed things along.

Many thanks

Mrs Stewart

 

English

Activities for after our live lesson.

We would like you to continue researching about your chosen animal. See if you can find some super facts to wow us with! Below is a reminder of the suggested questions from Monday, but you might have your own questions to research as well and that is great! We love learning new information.

  • Where does your animal live (it’s habitat)?
  • What does it like to eat?
  • Does it have any amazing skills?
  • How long can it live for?
  • Does it have any difficulties to face? E.g. loss of habitat

 

Maths

Please see attached activities. Your child does not need to complete all of these questions, just choose the section that suits them best.

 

Science

LO: I can name parts of the human body and say what their function is.

 

Draw the outline of a human on a piece of paper. You could ask your grown up to draw round you if you have a large enough piece at home! Now draw on parts of the body that you know, you could label them too. Tell your grown up what each part is for, for example eyes are to help you see. You could test how well some parts of your body works if you would like an extra challenge. For example, what is the quietest sound you can hear? How far away can you see a picture? Can you taste foods while blindfolded and still tell what they are? Can you guess the smell?

2. Using objects, practise making 20 in different ways, then write the corresponding number sentence, e.g. 18+2=20

3. Fill in the missing numbers, using your number bond knowledge to help you.

8+?=10, 6+?=10, 11+?=20, 15+5=, 17+?=20, 5+?=20, 9+?=10, 13+?=20, 14+?=20, 19+?=20, 20+?=20

4.Use your knowledge of number bonds to solve the following problems, 90+?=100, 50+?=100, ?+8-=100, 95+?=100, 90+?=100, 85+?=100.  Show your answers using the bar method.  Now draw your own bar model and find different ways of making 20, then 100. 

Remember to complete your Mathletics activity for this week.

For an extra problem to solve, see below.

We are going to start some work on non- fiction texts this week. You can use link above to look at a non- fiction text you can read yourself or see if you can find some non- fiction books at home. Have a look through and see what you notice. See if you can answer these questions.

  • Does it look the same as a fiction text (story)?  Can you explain your answer to your grown up. (headings, labels near pictures, contents page, diagrams.)
  • Do you read it in the same way as a story book? (You don’t need to read it from start to finish- just find the most useful part.)
  • Can you find devices that help you use the non- fiction book best? (Contents page, index, heading/ subheading, technical words glossary.)
  • What is the non- fiction text used for? (To give information that is factually true- not a fictional story- that has been made up.

 

Today and tomorrow (after the live English lesson) we would like you to research an animal of your choice so that you can write about it on Wednesday. See what fascinating facts you can find, but make sure you understand what you are reading!

 

Here are some questions you might like to answer.

  • Where does your animal live (it’s habitat)?
  • What does it like to eat?
  • Does it have any amazing skills?
  • How long can it live for?
  • Does it have any difficulties to face? E.g. loss of habitat

 

Topic

Where can wolves be found? Look at a world map and find the places where wolves live.  You could print the map and mark them on, if you would like to. You could also add other features of maps, for example the seas and oceans, land, mountains. Think back to the places wolves are found and see if you can find out some information. What is the weather like there? What kind of plants grow?  Which animals live in these areas?

Good morning Bats! 

I hope you had a lovely day yesterday and were busy with lots of fun and learning. Here is lots more fun for you on Friday!

Have a good day, and enjoy your weekend.

Mrs Stewart

 

Friday's maths activities

Today you will be practising your knowledge of place value by showing how many hundreds, tens, ones and maybe thousands are in a number!

 

Get your brains working!  Today, I want you to begin by writing out the numbers to 10, then 20 in numerals and words.  Try to spell them correctly. 

Don’t worry if you are finding it tricky, we will keep practising.

 

Now choose one of the following activities,

1. Making the following numbers using Lego, bricks, pasta etc; 8, 2, 10, 7, 6, 5, 3.  Can you draw the objects and write the numeral?

2. Make the following numbers, then draw the objects, write the numeral and how many tens and ones are in each number; 11, 15, 21, 16, 18, 17, 22, 25, 12

3. Complete the missing number puzzles – see attached.  You can use the 100 square on our class page from Weds to help you.  Then pick 5 numbers from the puzzle and write how many tens and ones are in each number.

4.Use the following groups of numbers to see how many different numbers you can make.  Think about a logical approach to ensure you can find all the combinations.

For example, using the numbers 1, 3, 2.  You can make 132, 123, 321, 312, 231, 213

Have a go, using these numbers,

9, 2

1, 5, 4

8, 2, 1

9, 2, 5

1, 3, 6, 8

4, 2, 1, 8,

Friday's afternoon activity. R.E.

 

We will be thinking about leaders- religious ones and those in other roles.

Play a game – ask your grown up to start. I am thinking of someone who is…….. try to guess who the leader who is being described e.g. Headteacher, captain of a football team, The Queen.  

Think about what qualities make these people leaders and why do you trust them?

Choose one leader. Draw a picture and write a sentence about why they are a good leader.

Happy Thursday Bats! Thank you to those of you who sent in story maps, I am super impressed with your hard work. Well done, I could see lots of fantastic pictures and writing.

Mrs Heycock and I would also like to say congratulations to Addison and his family on the arrival of his baby sister Ava. How exciting!

I will see you all at 9.15 for some number fun. Have a lovely day,  from Mrs Stewart.

Thursday live lesson activities

Today you will be comparing numbers using the language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most and least. You will also be using the following symbols to show your understanding; <, > and =.

Choose one or more of the following activities.

  1. Using Lego bricks or blocks, can you make the following amounts and write in your book which ones are bigger or smaller? 3 or 5, 7 or 10, 11 or 15, 2 or 12, 7 or 8.
  2. Using the more or less than symbol, can you write out the following numbers in your book to say which one is bigger or smaller?  18 or 21, 13 or 17, 11 or 13, 12 or 10, 29 or 30, 15 or 12.  You can make the numbers if you need to.  Make sure you have a think about how many tens and ones are in a number first. 
  3. Write out the following pairs of numbers in your book, then draw the more than or less than symbol to show which one is bigger and smaller.
  4. Extra challenge – write out the following numbers and tell me the value of the underlined number.  For example, 125 – what is the value of the 1?  The answer is 100.

Try to answer the following,

123, 301, 527, 964, 299, 99, 1324, 3568, 10, 000

Thursday's English lesson

 Watch Tuesday’s clip of Little Red Riding Hood again, and try to join in when you can.

 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-listen-and-join-in-with-a-story-6mu

What do you think of the choices the characters made in the story? Should Little Red Riding Hood talk to the wolf? What might the wolf be thinking?

Are there any words that you don’t understand or haven’t heard before? 

We would like you to act out the story of Little Red Riding Hood today, using puppets, soft toys or family members! Make sure you get the events in the right order! Use your story map if you need help. See if you can use some of the repeated phrases (e.g.’What big eyes you have’) in your story.

 Thursday's afternoon activity

 

We would like to try to make hand puppets over the next few weeks!  To start this project, we would like you to design 4 different puppets ideas by drawing them on paper. You can choose any animal you would like. Once you have drawn your puppets, colour them carefully to show how you would like the puppet to be when it is made. You could label each one showing what the parts are made of. E.g. buttons for eyes, wool for fur.

Afternoon activity- Jigsaw.

     

Our topic this term is ‘Hopes and Dreams’. Jerrie Cat would like you to have a think about what your hopes and dreams are. They could be hopes and dreams for the day, the week or the year! With your grown up, think of a challenge that you could complete in the next 2 weeks. It could be skipping, drinking more water, being more helpful etc. Keep a record of how much you can do each day and see if you can beat your score!

 

Happy New Year Bats!

We hope you have had a restful break and are ready for a new term. Our live lesson will be at 9.15 each day, and there will be new tasks here everyday to keep you busy! I hope to see lots of you for our zoom lesson each day.

Have fun!

Mrs Stewart

Try these activities or mathletics after the live maths lesson.

Take a handful of Lego/ blocks/ pasta/ pens or toys.  Can you count how many items are in each group?

Could you challenge yourself by estimating how many objects are in a group?

 

Count out the following amounts using your toys, blocks etc

15, 19, 12, 11, 10,

Can you draw the objects and write the number in your book?

 

Ask an adult to put pasta or other objects into groups.  Can you estimate how many there are by quickly looking at them?

What has happened?

Tuesday 5th January 2020

English task.  Look what we have found! (see photos above) What could have happened?

 

Talk to someone at home about what you can see.

Think about:

  • What might have happened?
  • Who has been here?
  • Why might this have happened?
  • Does it remind you of any stories that you know?

 

 

            You could:

  • create spoken stories to explain this event with your grown up
  • have a go at drawing pictures and writing captions for your new story
  • describe an object in detail, using adjectives
  • act out your new story using puppets or your family members

 

Please watch this clip before tomorrow mornings live lesson:

Science- Animals including humans

Watch this clip

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/what-is-a-living-thing-70t3ae?activity=video&step=1

 

Then you could:

  • collect up some things around your home and sort them into 2 groups- living/ non- living.
  • Make a list of creatures that are herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.
  • Make a rhyme to help you remember everything that a living thing does.
  • Create a creature and a habitat for it.
Mrs Heycock and I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and let's hope 2021 is an improvement for us all! We have had a wonderful term with your children and we are proud of every one of them for their hard working attitude, and their eagerness to learn.
