Learning outside the classroom - summer term - wk 27/4/10

Phonics – Carry out at least 2 Education City activities per day (these will reinforce the sounds that we have already learnt).

Monday – ‘air’ sound.  Practice writing the sound and create a list of words containing ‘air’.

Tuesday – write a sentence containing one of these words.  Please complete this work as independently as possible.

Wednesday – ‘ure’ sound.  Practice writing the sound and create a list of words containing ‘ure’.

Thursday – write a sentence containing one of these words.  Remember to include a capital letter, full stop and finger spaces.

Friday – practice handwriting your single letters and digraphs.

 

Maths – carry out at least 2 Education City activities per day.

We are going to be using white rose maths where there are activities available which give you a task to carry out each day.

Time – I will also upload a video on how to write the time to the o’clock on a digital clock and send an activity for the children to complete.

 

P.E. – continuing our work on throwing and catching.  Still using a large ball (about football size):

  • Practice your throwing and catching whilst walking around.  Throw to head height, working on confidence and control.
  • Throwing and catching in pairs – pairs to be walking side by side handing the ball to each other (practicing good hand position for receiving).  Then walking side by side making little throws to each other (hands ready, showing your partner where to aim).  Remember to always watch your partner.

Obviously the important thing is for the children to be active, so remember to try to get out (if the weather permits) and carry out some exercise.

 

George’s Marvellous Medicine

Task 1 – What would you put into your medicine?  Create a list in case you need to make your medicine again.  Think carefully, George went into lots of different rooms to find his ingredients – where would you go?  If you are in my phonics group, then try to use alliteration when writing your list (that is words that begin with the same sound) e.g.  terrible toothpaste or wiggly worms.

Task 2 – Design your own medicine bottle.  Think carefully what shape you would like your bottle to be.  Draw your bottle (large enough to fill a sheet of A4 paper) and then create your own label for the bottle – give your medicine a name and directions on how it should be taken.

Task 3 – What would happen if somebody took your medicine?  Draw a picture and then write a sentence describing the results.

Task 4 – Paint a picture of the medicine bubbling away in the pan.  What colour is it?  Is it splashing, does it have sparkles flying from it?   Look at the picture below from the book ‘The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl’ to give you some ideas.
