Welcome back everyone!
I hope you managed to enjoy the Easter holidays and the beautiful weather.
This week we will be focusing on shape. The children will be identifying and describing the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. They will also be identifying lines of symmetry.
Monday- Look at the 2D shape power point presentation. Complete the shape matching activity (in the files below).
* Extension: Choose a shape at random and encourage your child to describe its properties using the vocabulary vertices and sides.
Tuesday- Children to watch the video below 'Intro to Symmetry' and complete vertical symmetry activities.
Wednesday- Children to complete Shape Wanted poster activity.
We will now move on to looking at 3 Dimensional Shapes. The children should be able to identify and describe the properties of 3D shapes and use the vocabulary; edges, vertices and faces.
Thursday- Look at the 3D shape power point and the presentation above. Children to complete 3D Shape properties activity.
This week you will be sharing and enjoying the story 'Where The Wild Things Are' by Maurice Sendak
Monday: Share the story if you have a copy at home or watch the audio book using the link below.
Make and use the stick puppets to act out and retell the story together.
Tuesday: Think about the main character, Max, in the story. Why was he sent to bed without any supper? What would he have thought to himself? Complete the thought bubbles sheet.
Wednesday: Today you will use amazing adjectives to describe a wild thing from the story. Choose a wild thing. Look at its teeth, claws, body etc. What words can you use to describe it for example: pointy claws, feathery body, bulging eyes etc. Write a description of it.
Thursday: Draw a wild thing of your own on the wanted poster sheet and write a description of it using amazing adjectives.
Friday: Using the 'wild thing' you drew and described yesterday, write a fact file for it. You can choose a fact file template. What does your wild thing eat, where does it live and how does it survive?
Our topic for the next 3 weeks is Young Gardeners
observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants
find out and describe how plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy
We, as Key Stage 1 ,thought this would be a great topic as you could observe plants in your home, gardens and immediate surrounding area.
This week we are going to focus on the parts of a plant. I attach a file with a powerpoint presentation and lots of activities to dip into as and when it suits.
If you have any seeds it would be great to plant some now. You could even do your own experiments, putting some in a cupboard to avoid light, some in the fridge to avoid warmth and some without water and discuss your findings!
In support of schools the BBC are starting their home learning through BBC Bitesize from 20.4.20. I attach the link below
If you then choose KS1 science and scroll through they have a great section on plants. Have fun and stay safe!
