Working From Home (Week 14)
I will continue to update this blog each week with work you can do and things to keep you busy. I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend and are ready for the week ahead.
This week we are continuing our topic: PIRATES!
-Forest School will be on Thursdays. Please make sure you are dressed with long sleeves and either leggins or trousers.
- UPDATE on what OAK CLASS looks like:
-This second week has been very successful in Oak Class. The children all settled in so well and we have been able to revert back to the normal timetable. Each day we do Phonics, English, Maths, Handwriting, Music, RE and Art. The afternoons are set aside for Golden Time and one-to-one reading. Thank you for such a lovely welcome back.
-What Makes Your Family Special?
-Draw a portrait of your family. Think about what you look like.
-Around the picture label things which make them happy and special.
Looking at the pirate map that you designed, add some place names. Can you use Alliteration and Adjectives to make the place names more interesting? Creepy Cave, Rocky Ridge, Pongy Pond.
Write a short story describing the journey you would travel on if you were following the map.
- Play Phase 5 and 6 of Burried Treasure:
If you would like to try any of the other games you can use this log in and password:
-Add some more 'High Five' hands to your tricky word wall. Have you got these Tricky Words:
-Create a POEM about your journey across your pirate map (Link with Literacy work) - Can you think of rhyming words?
- Sound Hide and Seek
Find some sticky notes (or paper with bluetack)
On the sticky notes carefully write these sounds: ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er or these Tricky Words: oh, their, people, Mr, Mrs, looked, called, asked, could
Ask someone in your family to hide the post-it notes all over the house (especially on things you'll need during the day i.e. toothbrush, toilet roll, milk)
Every time you find a sticky note throughout the day say the sound or the word. If you get it right, you can keep it and get a point. If you get it wrong the person who hid it gets a point and can re-hide the note.
WHO WILL WIN??
PLEASE checkout the other writing ideas and activities at the bottom of this blog page.
-"Pirate Pete has 40 Gold Coins in his pocket. He has been collecting them for three days: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. He found 18 Gold Coins on Monday, 10 Gold coins on Wednesday. How many did he find on Tuesday?"
-Check your answer using different methods.
- Please also complete the work set on Matheletics!
Design and Technology
-Can you design an outfit for a pirate or a mermaid? What materials would you use? Could you recycle any old clothes or 'junk' which you have already?
-Does it float? YOU are going to walk to plank. But what would you wear or carry to help you float. Test different objects and materials in your bath tub/washing up bowl/sink to see if they float. Record your findings in a scientific table.
CAPTAIN HOOK says 'The bigger the item the more likely the object is to float'
Is he right?
A few additional writing activities which you could do at home:
1. Writing on the floor and walls outside with chalk (write over them a second time with water on a brush and they will disappear!)
2. Using a squeezy water bottle/paint brushes, writing on the floor outside with water
3. Rainbow Writing - writing every word or letter in a different colour
4. Writing letters for... the class pets, fairies, pixies, dinosaurs (to go in the Tardis), buddies in year 4. (If you wanted to write a letter to me or the other teachers at St. Matthew's, I will happily write and post one back to you)
5. Writing in sand or loose dirt with a stick
6. Writing secret messages (with your finger) on your friends back, hand, arm, foot. Can you work out what they wrote?
7. Setting up a tuck shop, writing lists, labels, receipts, recipes (also great for learning about money)
8. Draw the outline of an animal and write inside the shape about it
9a. Writing words on Post It notes and organizing them into sentences
9b. You could also write words on building blocks or lego bricks and connect them together to make a sentence
10. Set-up a hidden writing den in your house, where you can hide away and write in your own 'personal diary'
11. Speech Bubbles - stick googly eyes on things around the house (chair, cucumber, spoon) and write a funny speech bubble on what it could say. "Do you like my spiky hair Mr Fork"
12. Writing words on strips of paper and making a sentence paper chain
