A big sunshine welcome to REMOTE LEARNING WEEK 6!
Hope you are all okay!
Please feel free to contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to!
This week for Maths we will follow the White Rose lessons again.
Please scroll down to access the learning video to watch at the start of each lesson.
There is also a knowledge organiser to help you.
For Friday's lesson there is no supporting video. Today you can revise your number bonds within 5, 10, 20 and beyond! Test yourselves - see how quickly you can do them!
We will continue this week with the unit of work from Talk for Writing.
Please find it below.
MONDAY - Read the story of The Elves and the Shoe Maker together to remind yourselves. Read the letter from Mr and Mrs Cobbler to the Elves on p12. Write a postcard replying to Mr and Mrs Cobbler from the Elves using the template on p13.
TUESDAY - Make up a story about some elves that help people. Talk through your ideas using the question prompts on p14 to help you. Then use the story mountain template to plan your ideas following beginning, middle and end.
WEDNESDAY - Using your story mountain plan from yesterday you can now write your own version of the story. Think of a good title too! You will need your own paper for this as there is no template provided.
THURSDAY - Today you will be thinking about riddles. Follow the questions on p17, can you guess what the riddle is about? Can you make up your own riddle about an animal? Have a go at writing one together using the ideas on p18.
FRIDAY - Today you will write your own riddle about an animal of your choice. Share it with your family to see if they can guess what it is! You will need your own paper for this as there is no template.
There is additional waterproof investigation activity and instruction writing activity on p15 and p16 should you wish to do this.
Over the next two weeks we would like you to explore the human body and a healthy lifestyle.
Our activities will include; learning about the human body and organs, healthy food and a balanced diet,learning about the 5 senses,medicines and the benefits of exercise and a healthy lifestyle.
Below I have listed some suggested activities and included some PowerPoints and activities to help. I have tried to include helpful resources and websites to help, but as always please choose the activities you wish to do with your child.
There are also some excellent videos on BBC Bitesize . In particular for this week these videos would be good for your child to watch;
Activity 1: My Wonderful body
Help your child to read through the PowerPoint- My Wonderful Body (you do need to click on on each page several times for the information to appear and the sound symbol).
Activity- Label the Human Body activity (see files below)
Extension: For our older Infant children or those who are interested, I have also included a more complex Skeleton PowerPoint and there is an additional activity- Skeleton extension (see files).
*There is also a word search- Human Body word search.
Activity 2: Healthy Food
Help your child to look at the file- Let's eat a Healthy Balanced Diet. Talk about the different food groups. You may wish to look at the foodeeze food group cards and cut these out to make a healthy balanced plate.
Activity: Challenge your child to plan a healthy lunch or dinner, ensuring they select a food from each food group. Your child may wish to draw their healthy meal on a paper plate or circle template. Older children may like to type up the details of their healthy lunch/ dinner. They could then help to make their healthy meal.
Extension: Look at the Food Origins files. Challenge your child to select 5 food products and identify where they came from.
Activity 3: Inside my Body
Help your child to look at the Organs PowerPoint.
Activity: Help your child to draw an outline of their body. They could do this outside using chalk or on an old roll of wallpaper. Can they draw, position and label some of the main organs in the body e.g. brain, heart, lungs, Stomach. You may want to print out the organs cards (see files below) and help your child to cut them out and stick them on rather than drawing.
Extension: Older children could be encouraged to match the pictures of organs to their descriptions (see files- Organ Card Sort).
