Home Learning for 1st - 5th February

Please see below for a daily timetable supporting you and your child to continue to access the curriculum at home. Please refer to the blended learning homepage for the principles and advice guiding our home learning offer. We endeavour to provide links that are accessible via  a mobile phone and the learning can then be recorded on paper if appropriate. This can be shared via Class Dojo to enable your child's class teacher to provide feedback and guide you and your child on the next steps in their learning. 

 

There will be supplementary videos posted by class teachers on Class Dojo and remember to tune in for your stories. :)

Independent activities

 

Use the preposition bank in the resources section to write a paragraph describing your alien.  Remember to write in full sentences and use the exciting words you found yesterday in a thesaurus.

 

Describe its appearance, how it moves and how it speaks (or the sounds it makes).

 

Try to vary your openers and if you can include them, a few relative clauses would be brilliant! 😊

Try and post the learning during the lesson if you can, so we can give feedback and support.

Remember to send a message on your portfolio if you need any help. =)

Today, can you please complete the arithmetic paper in the resources section.

 

Remember to have a go at every question, but if are really stuck - skip that question and come back to it later. Make sure you show all of your working out in the space provided.

  

The answers are at the back of the paper.  Once you have finished, mark your paper.  Can you see where you went wrong on any of the questions?

Word of the day

Here is yesterday’s sick sentence written correctly:

 

Next year, we will make the long journey to visit Pandora, but we will not be able to stay long.

 

Correct the following sentence.

 

the living things on pandora have bioluminescent qualities thay emit lite in breath taking pattern’s

Here are the new spellings for next week: 

 

field          shield         belief 

relief         mischief          niece 

receive        deceive         ceiling

Investigate the new spelling pattern.  Can you find any other words that would fit? Look in your reading book to see if you can find any of your spellings.  

 

Use Lego bricks (or something similar) to make each letter for your spellings.
