A new month and lots of exciting changes to come, the biggest of all being that we will be back in school next week and this is our final week of home learning! Just five more days class two so keep trying your best right up to the very last activity! I am amazingly proud of all of you and I can’t wait to see you! I have posted some photos of different ways you tacked the maths problems on Friday and some great PSE/RE work from the pupils who were in school. Our star speller of the week is Delilah, who has been working really hard on her spelling work Well done Delilah!
Here’s our plan to start the week off.
English: We are going to spend the next three days finding out about our final aviation pioneer. Her name is Amelia Earhart and she is another female aviator just like Amy Johnson. Amelia is American though not English. Watch this presentation to find out a bit more about Amelia.
We will celebrating World Book Day and our love of reading later this week so I am going to read you some chapters from this book about Amelia’s life over the next few days. We call this sort of non-fiction book a biography.
I am sure that you will recognise lots of similarities (things that are the same) between Amelia and Amy but there are also lots of differences too. Your task today is to compare the lives of Amelia Earhart and Amy Johnson and investigate what similarities and differences there are. You can record your ideas in a table like this if you want to, and use the template on Seesaw, or you can decide to organise your work in a different way. You might need to look back at the work you did on Amy Johnson last week to help you. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Spelling: For our last week of home leaning spelling before we return to out classroom we are going to look at words ending in ‘tion’. Watch the powerpoint video to find out more.
Maths: I hope you enjoyed learning about money last week. We have just a few more lessons to go to really make sure you understand as much as you can about coins, notes and using money. Today’s lesson focusses on exchanging money for items in a shop.
Today you can set your own shop up at home. Grab some of your toys and teddies or some other items that an adult might let you have. You can write labels for them with different amounts on or ask an adult to think of some prices for you. Practise exchanging money for the items in your shop, this will be more fun if another family member or a classmate in school can join in with you and you can take turns to be the shopkeeper and the the customer.
Theme: Mrs Plant has provided us with this activity.
Today we would like you to find out more about the United Kingdom and create a fact file. You could think about the following questions to help you.
What countries make up the United Kingdom?
What are their capital cities?
What currency (money) do the countries use?
What is the main language used?
What do the flags of each country look like?
We have added a template to your 2Dos on Purple Mash or you could create your own fact file.
The Union Flag, also known as the Union Jack, is the national flag of the United Kingdom. It is the British flag. It is called the Union Flag because it stands for the union of the countries of the United Kingdom under one King or Queen. We will find out more about this flag when we return to school.
Today as an added challenge we would like you to create your own Union Flag. You can just draw and colour it or get a bit more creative. It is entirely up to you. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
We have also added a template to your 2Dos on Purple Mash to create a flag online.
