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 joining in with the following yoga session:
Today, your task is to listen to the story 'The Queen's Hat' by Steve Anthony. The author reads the story in the video below. Look out for the different London landmarks that the hat flies past.
Your written task is to have a go at writing your own version of this story by writing about the different London landmarks that the Queen's hat passes as it flies off!
You can use the same places that are in the actual book or come up with some of your own ideas. You could refer to the map you used yesterday afternoon or do some research with a grown up. Maybe you have been to London and know about some places that you could include?
Your short story should include pictures of the places the hat flies over or around.
As a challenge, can you order your story by using connectives such as: first, next, then, after that...?
Where will your hat end up at the end?
You can either write this story straight into your home learning workbooks or fold some paper, draw some lines and make an actual book- with a front cover.
As alway, remember to write neatly on the lines and include full stops and capital letters.
Try to use an exclamation mark somewhere appropriate!
*Also- remember the names of places have capital letters too, so when you write the name of the London landmark- check you have capital letters!
The Queen was on her way to...…. when the wind went...….. and blew off her...….
First it flew......
Then it …….
After that …..
Eventually it landed.....
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: e s f
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 'or'
You can find the 'or' 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 'or' sound. Pick one that is most appropriate for your child:
Here is the maths video for today.
Below are the linked worked sheets.
Your child could copy the questions into their home learning book if you prefer not to print.
Additional Maths worksheets
Your child does not need to complete these but they are here if you feel your child would benefit from them.
They do not need to do both!
Afternoon session- Art
Observational drawing from secondary source
This afternoon, your task is to look closely at pictures of some famous places in London. There are some pictures in the document below that you could print and select one to draw. Or you could work with an adult to research a picture of a famous London landmark that you would like to have a go at drawing.
You need to pay attention to the different lines you can see and how thick and thin the lines are. Look for any patterns or shapes you notice and include these.
Your drawings can be simple black and white line drawings or you could include light and dark with simple shading.
If you prefer you can colour them carefully or use paint, if you have access to these at home.
If you have any, using washes of watercolour paint to hint at the colours might be something you would like to try.
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.
