You might like to start your day with the Joe Wicks workout on You Tube.
If you prefer, you could try something more relaxing. In class we will be starting our day with the following yoga session:
Today, your task is to write some sentences comparing London in the past to London now.
Here are some pictures for you to look at.
Discuss what the difference are between the pairs of pictures.
The pictures are in the document below for you to print out, if you would like to.
Your written task is to write sentences explaining how London has changed.
What was it like in 1666 and what is it like now?
In the past houses were made out of wood. In London today many houses have been built out of brick.
Use the pictures on the sheets below to help you.
The first page has the pictures in pairs (as above)
For a slightly trickier task- use the second page which involves matching the pairs before writing your sentences.
The third page shows you the answers to matching the pairs and the final page gives some suggestions of the type of information you might like to include in your sentences.
Please record your sentences straight into your home learning workbook.
Try to include:
Capital letters and full stops.
Keep your letters on the line and use your careful letter formation.
This week we will be revising the letter formation of the ‘curly caterpillars’: c o a q g d e s f
If your child is starting these letters in the correct position (the top of the letter) then they can begin to start working on the pre-cursive letter formation and start their letters on the line. Please refer to the powerpoint presentation on the previous page to check the correct formation.
Have a go in your handwriting books. Today you might like to focus on: c o a
Your spellings this week focus on the spelling rule for adding -y to a word ending in 'e'.
We can add –y to some root words ending in ‘e’.
We drop the ‘e’ before adding -y.
Your spellings this week are:
shine - shiny, wave- wavy, bone - bony, smoke - smoky, craze - crazy, cheese - cheesy
This week we are going to revise more sounds from the year and we will focus on the sounds:
oo ar or air ir
Today we will be concentrating on 'oo'
You can find the oo sound on phase 5 of the Phonics Play- Buried Treasure game. The link to this game is on the previous page, to access all week.
Here are a choice of activities involving the 'oo' sound. Pick one that is most appropriate for your child.
Below is the maths lesson for today.
The relevant worksheets are also here to use, if you would like to. Your child could copy the questions into their home learning book if you prefer not to print.
Afternoon session- PSHCE
How have I changed from a baby to now?
PART 1 - Finding out about how I have changed
1. Talk to your parents about what you did when you were a baby.
2. How did you change as a toddler?
What could you do as a toddler- that you couldn’t do when you were a baby?
3. What can you do now -that you couldn’t do before starting school?
* Perhaps you could look at some photos to see how you looked at these three stages.
What physical differences do you notice?
PART 2 - Recording the changes
In your home learning workbook, split a page into 3 sections - and label: Baby, Toddler, Now.
If you prefer, there are sheets you can print off.
Now select one of these options that is best suited for your child.
* Draw a picture of yourself at these 3 stages and label some of the things that are different.
** Draw a picture of yourself at the 3 stages, label and write a brief caption next to each picture.
*** Draw and label a picture of yourself at the 3 stages. Write sentences explaining how you changed. Include what you looked like and what you could do.
End of the day - Peace out session
Go on an adventure in your mind- meditate and relax as you listen and let your imagination go…
Have a nice, calm end to your day of learning.
