Hi Hedgehog Class,
Happy Monday! Hope you enjoyed looking at Buckingham Palace today and I am about to read all the facts you have learnt from your Purple Mash activity. Tomorrow is Big Write day, though I would like you to also continue with your Maths and Phonics so please only spend a short time planning your writing and around 30-45 minutes on your writing.
Phonics: Using the link https://bit.ly/34KsiFS Watch the episode live at 1030am.
Big Write: This week I would like you to write instructions. Remember these tell you how to do something and sometimes need to be a little bossy. Did you know Paddington Bear LOVED marmalade sandwiches? Well for Big Write I would like you to write instructions on how to make your favourite sandwich. It would be good if you could make your sandwich first and talk with your grown-up about the stages you have taken to make the sandwich (don't forget to always wash your hands first)! I have attached a planning sheet for you to use to support you in using time words like 'first, next, then' so please draw pictures and circle the word you are going to use. Once you have done this, you can put your instructions into sentences. Remember each instruction will need to be on a new line. Don't forget capital letters, full stops and finger spaces too! You will notice on the planning sheet I have added a box called 'adverbs' these words tell us how we do things - a mixture of adjective and verb - your challenge is to try to use these in some of your instructions (Year 2 should all do this).
Can all of you complete year one week 3 lesson 2 (linking addition and subtraction) https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/ -Year two, if you want to challenge yourselves by completing week 3 lesson 2 (compare number sentences) https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/ Grown-ups you will know which tasks are appropriate for your child, but it is good revision for all children to complete the year one activity. -Please also complete your 'x a day' on Doodle Maths.
Miss Bidwell continues your learning about plants and she says (find attached powerpoint):
Begin by introducing children to garden plants, explaining the different places you may find gardens, for example, you may have one where you live or you may find one in a park. Children will then be shown the following garden plants: petunia, pansy, begonia, rose, geranium, busy lizzie, sunflower, wallflower and sweet pea. Allow the children to reflect on whether they have seen these garden plants and what their favourite is. This will help them to become familiar with the names.
Then children can choose to take part in a quick game of spot the sunflower and pansy in two images of illustrated gardens.
Activity: Children will then draw and label their own gardens using the garden plants they have learnt about in this lesson.
As an extension, children can reflect on their favourite garden to visit or research a garden to draw, allowing them to reflect on whether they can spot any garden plants they have learnt about. I am glad to see you are all well and working hard! I was very excited to see all of your beautiful work last week and that some of you have noticed the wild plants in your gardens or on your daily walks.
Daily Reminders: - have regular fruit and water breaks and try to keep to some kind of routine - complete your home diary - read a book to your grown up - start the day with some exercise to get your mind and body moving - always be kind.
Have a good day!
