Literacy

Zoom- 9:30am

Today we will be using our picture and setting description from the start of the week to write our own enchanted woodland poem. We will use a verse from everybody to create a class poem. 

Your task is to write a poem about your enchanted woods. Use each of the sentence starters below to help you write your poem. The layout (how you set your poem out) is important when writing a poem. When writing out your poem, two lines (or 4) will create a verse and each verse will have a space between.  If you need help with the layout, you can use the prompt sheet below.

Sentence starters 

Where you see 3 dots (...) you add your idea. Remember to look at the picture you drew/painted on Tuesday and the descriptive sentences you wrote yesterday to magpie (take ideas) from. 

Not far from sight,

Lies a forest...

 

I pick up a flower, 

With...

 

Cheerful... 

With...

 

Behind a tall tree,

There is ...

Example poem (The words in bold are the sentence starters)

 

Not far from sight,

Lies a forest so bright and green. 

                                                                                                                               

I pick up a flower,

With pink delicate petals. 

 

Cheerful bunnies hopping around,

With their fluffy tails bobbing up and down.                                                                                                            

 

Behind a tall tree,

There is a toadstool as red as a rose.                                                                                                                                

If you would like a challenge, there is two things you could do:

1. Add more lines to your verse so that each verse has 4 lines.

2. Try to add rhyming words (words that have the same sound).  Rhyming is difficult. You do not need to do this.  The rhyming words in the poem below are underlined.

 

Not far from sight

Lies a forest so bright and green,

With colourful flowers,

For miles to be seen.

 

Cheerful bunnies hopping around,

With their fluffy tails bobbing up and down.

You can hear tiny purple dragonflies,

As they flutter through the air.

 

Behind a tall tree,

There is a toadstool as red as a rose.

And a magical fairy,

With a tiny pink nose.

 

Presentation

If you would like to write up your poem or one of your verses in best, you can choose a shape to write your poem onto. Remember to take your time and use your best handwriting. 

Handwriting:

Today we will be continuing to introduce the pre-cursive script for each letter but please only start this if you are forming the letter with the correct sequence of movements.

The following videos will show you how to start your letters on the line in order to write the letters ready to join them at the next stage.

Today we will be working on the letters- g and q

***Please note that we do not loop the letter g, as seen in the video***

Here are some optional comparing lengths and heights activity cards.



Phonics

Zoom- 1:00pm

We will be reading and spelling words with the sound: ire- fire, fire!

For example, fire, hire, wire, spire, tire, admire, vampire, bonfire...

Here are a couple of phonics tasks to select from and have a go at, following our Zoom session. Select the sheet s that are most suited to your child. 

Science

In science this term we will be talking about seasonal changes and plants. As we are coming to the end of winter and into spring, you might have already noticed some signs of spring- flower buds, daffodils, nest-building and birds singing.

We will start this topic by looking at the four seasons. Watch the short video about seasons in the link below.

What are seasons?

Task

Your task is to create a seasons wheel like the one below. Just print out the seasons wheel and follow the instructions on the document.

If you are not able to print the seasons wheel, you can work straight into your book. Split your page into 4 boxes. Write out the seasons, one in each box- SPRING, SUMMER, AUTUMN, WINTER. Draw what the weather is like in each season.  You can add a special occasion, such as Christmas, under the season that is happens in. Can you think of a special occasion for each of the seasons? 

Or if your feeling a little creative, why not try creating your own seasons wheel using a paper plate like in the example below.

End of the day

If you would like to end your day with a peaceful time of relaxation, you might like to listen to the short meditation below.
