4 w/b 24th January

Reading - Read your stage book at home. If you are on Accelerated Reader you can quiz on your book with this link (when you have finished your book). There are also some Victorian reading activities this week.


Spellings - Fastest, faster, quicker, quickest, quieter, quietest, love, go, he and me.

Rainbow words - Write out your spellings in different colours. Can you make a pattern? Write out each word at least four times.

Making up sentences with your spellings in - With a grown up make up sentences with your spellings in. You or the grown up need to write these down. You can have more than one of your spellings in the same sentence, but every spelling needs to be covered. Keep these safe for the next activity.

Dictated sentences - A grown up can read out the sentence to you made up in the previous activity and you write it down. Can you get the spellings and the other words in your sentences correct?

Quizzing - On Friday, grown up will read out your spellings and you write them down onto a piece of paper. Check your spellings with your grown up. How many did you get right or which words to do you need to practice more?


Monday morning Education 4 Safety (E4S) - Listen to the story Digi Duck's Big Decision. What should DigiDuck do with the photo of Proud Pig? If DigiDuck sends the photo, what should his friends do? Why is bullying with words, bodies or technology unacceptable? See the attachment below.



Literacy Tuesday - Look at the set of instructions below about making Flapjacks. Why is this a good set of instructions? What makes them helpful? Think about the title, ingredients, list, bossy verbs (doing words) used. What else can you spot that is helpful? Challenge time! Pretend your grown-up is a robot; you need to teach them how to make a sandwich. Can you give verbal instructions to your grown-up about how to do this? Remember to give very clear instructions, otherwise your grown-up might get it wrong!

Literacy Wednesday - Watch this video about making Chinese noodles. Talk about what you saw with an adult. Can you tell them what the person in the video did to make the noodles and what the ingredients were? Ask an adult about anything you did not understand or know the name of. Now, write instructions about how to make these noodles. Remember to include a title, an ingredients list with quantities, bossy verbs (doing words), easy to follow instructions and make sure your instructions are in the correct order. Remember to write about washing your hands first!

Literacy Thursday - Edit your Chinese noodle instructions using a black pen. Have you remembered capital letters and full stops? Are there any spellings you can correct? Could you use connectives to add in more detail to some sentences e.g. because, but, or, if and so? Have you used some adjectives e.g. golden noodles. Challenge - can you add in some adverbs e.g. stir the noodles carefully.

Literacy Friday - Spelling quiz

Foundation Learning

PE Monday - Basketball - Can dribble a ball? Start off using two hands at the same time. When you are confident at dribbling with two hands, try bouncing the ball with your writing hand, then try your non-writing hand. As a final challenge can you dribble the ball with alternating hands? How many times can you dribble the ball without it stopping? Each time the ball hits the floor count one number higher. Can you get to 50 or even 100?

Tuesday - Continue working on your China topic homework. Check the Knowledge Organiser below. Do you understand all of the vocabulary? If not, ask an adult to help you. This is our favourite song about China at the moment. On Tuesday afternoon, you also need to practise your handwriting. We are starting to think about using joined up handwriting now. Make sure you start on the left-hand side of the letter and finish on the right; it's really important otherwise you'll get into all of a pickle when you try to join up!

Wednesday - DT construction challenge - Can you make a model of The Forbidden City? You could use construction toys or junk modelling etc. Once you have finished your model, can you measure how big it is?

PE Thursday - Practise the shapes we have been learning in PE. Pike, straddle, tuck and straight. Make sure you are pointing your toes for a tuck and pike. Today you need to explore balancing and points of balance. Points of balance means how many parts of your body are touching the floor. Test out balances with 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 points of balance. How many can you create? Make sure each balance is different and that you can hold it still for 5 seconds. 

Friday afternoon - Handwriting and choosing time!
