5M Half Term Home Learning

Year 5M half term Home Learning. Due in Monday 30th October 2017

Your Home Learning over the half term break is linked to our literacy work. Your challenge is to further develop your sea creatures in a different way from our non-chronological reports.

Some artistic ideas may include: A detailed drawing, painting, model or digital version of your sea creature.

You could also write a short story or newspaper report about your sea creature in preparation for next half term.

In addition to this task, I am expecting you all to continue reading regularly at home and practising your times tables as well as logging in to Bug Club and Mathletics as often as possible.

But most importantly, have fun and be safe!

Dinosaur eggs have arrived in Year 1!

This afternoon Year 1 have been hatching some dinosaur eggs!

Over the past few days we have been making dinosaur nests with our junk modelling materials for a special surprise  and today we all got our own dinosaur egg to look after.

We put the egg in a cup with some water and then made predictions about what we thought might happen!

‘The egg might dissolve in the water’ – Ezra

‘The egg might break and crack and there will be a dinosaur inside’ – Emanuel

We are all very excited and will be keeping a close eye on our eggs over the next couple of days.

Due in 16/10/17

This week’s home learning is all about division.

Use the examples to help you share the numbers equally into two groups. What items around your home can you find to count with? Can you write the number sentence for your maths? Can you think of a number story?

As a challenge can you try trickier numbers of your own? Can you equally share the numbers into 3 groups?

Diving into Dinosaurs!

1G have been diving into our Dinosaur topic!

We have been making close observations of dinosaurs to produce sketches, paintings and paper plate dinosaurs!

We have used our new palaeontologist skills to ‘dig for fossils’ and create different tools using junk modelling materials.

We have been reading dinosaur books to find out information and then we made our own.

We have also been learning lots of facts about our favourite dinosaurs.

Check back in soon to see what else we get up to!

Our visit to the park!

We received a letter from Mummy and Daddy Bear telling us to meet them at the park to have some fun!

We talked about how we could stay safe on our visit.  We decided we needed to walk along the pavement with the help of some of our parents.  We held hands and wore bright jackets so we could be seen.IMG_0522IMG_0520

We were brilliant at walking safely and listening to our adults! We arrived safely at the park, ready for lots of fun.  We played on the equipment and took turns doing parachute games.

We joined the three bears for a snack and a story, before playing some more games and heading back to school.

We had a fantastic time on our first educational visit in Reception. A big thank you to all the parents who helped us on the day!

Home Learning 29/9/17

This week’s home learning is to research you family tree, just as we did with the Tudors this week.  How far can you go back?  Can anyone beat me with 4 generations of Fosters?

Remember, you are expected to have your home reading record signed twice every week.  This can be either be based on your Guided Reading text or a book of your own choice and could involve reading the text, summarising the main events from your book so far or discussing an element that you find particularly interesting or didn’t quite understand with someone else.  Remember to note down any vocabulary which you found challenging or inspiring in your Reading Record so you can try and use it in your writing next week.

Mathletics has activities based on the addition and subtraction of whole numbers which we have been learning about in our maths lesson.  Use your personal log in details to help extend your learning further.

Next week, we will be looking at multiplication.  Which times table are you currently working on?  What strategies are you using to share with the rest of your class?
