Working From Home (Week 11)
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.
I will only be checking my emails on Thursdays. If you have any urgent questions please contact the office. Thank you :)
This week we are starting our new topic: PIRATES!
-Forest School will be on Thursdays.
-Watch this short animation about the Parable of the Good Samaritan: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zdkq6sg
-Re-write the story but set it in the modern day. For example, you could set your story at school or at the park. Did you fall over while playing in the dirt pit or on a bike? Who came by? Who helped you!
- A letter in a bottle! Follow these instructions to make a old pirate letter:
Find a piece of paper...
Crumple it up!
Crumpling the paper gives it a lot more texture when it soaks up the tea or coffee stain.
Soak it in Tea or Coffee
We usually add about 2 tablespoons of coffee to 2 cups of warm water. You need to let it dissolve. We have also tried soaking 3 or 4 teabags in the same amount of water. Both seem to work well. Flatten out your crumpled sheet and lay it in a roasting dish or other container. Then pour over your tea/coffee stained water. It shouldn't take very long for it to soak in.
Dry it out.
Carefully lift the parchment out onto newspaper to dry - or place it on a baking tray in the oven for a couple of minutes (low temperature).
Write your pirate letter
Think about what you would like to write about. Who are you writing to? Are you stuck on a desert island? Roll up the letter and put it in a bottle.
- Play TRICKY WORD TRUCK on Phonics Play:
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 mind map of words to do with PIRATES and think of words that can rhyme with them.
- 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??
