Literacy

First, let's have another song

Now, let's get started!

 

  • Do you remember what we learnt about yesterday in Literacy?
  • I'll give you a clue - they are words that help you say what something looks or feels like.
  • Can you remember - that's right, you learnt all about 'adjectives'. Adjectives give us more information about something. They describe it. They say what it is like.
  • Can you think of some adjectives to describe a book?
  • I thought of flexible, square, glossy, colourful.
  • Now lets watch a quick video just to recap what an adjective is before we complete the CHALLENGE.

  • Who knew that Elsa and Arna knew so many adjectives too!
  • So time for the Challenge!
  • Watch the song then play the game  - Can you identify the adjectives to describe the objects.

Now that you're all amazing adjective wizards, let's play a quick game.

  • Go and collect 5 things that you can carry from somewhere in your house and put them on the table.
  • Now try to think of as many adjectives as you can to describe the things you collected.
  • The person with the most adjectives wins.
  • Brilliant - who won that time?
  • Now let's quickly recap what an adjective is before we complete our activity.

Now for the challenge - are you ready?

In your home learning books, write todays date at the top - Wednesday 12th 

Click on the sheet for your group, try to sound the words out in order to read them then follow the instructions on how to complete it. You don't need to print it out, just copy the words into your books.

 

Parents  - take this opportunity to add to your child's vocabulary and discuss what words mean. Don't take it for granted that they know, because they often don't. Ask them to explain when you would use the word or can they put it in a sentence?

There are quite a few words that the children won't be that familiar with.

Stars

This week you have been developing your knowledge using non-standards units to measure length and height.  Today you are going to begin to explore and develop your understanding of standard units.  Length and height is measured using centimetres (cm) which is usually written as cm and metres (m) which is usually written as m.  

Before you begin the lesson below I want you to think about the size of the small rulers we have in class, these are 30cm long, then try to picture the large rulers we have in class these are called metre sticks and 1m long,  which is the same as 100cm.  It would take 3 small rulers to make 90 cm.

 

To begin to understand standard units of length

Topic

 I hope you all had a nice lunch. This afternoon, we are going to explore the new  words we learnt on Monday - carnivore, herbivore, and omnivore.

Your turn to talk now,  can you tell me

  • what a carnivore is.
  • What a herbivore is
  • what an omnivore is.

Now, let's get comfy and find out a bit more about the different diets the dinosaurs ate and their specialised features for eating that diet.

 

  

      

I hope you enjoyed that, It was really interesting finding out about how different each group of dinosaurs was.

Now it's your turn.

  • In your home learning books draw 3 big circles like the ones in the picture below. You can draw round a plate if you like. 
  • Write the headings - carnivore, herbivore and omnivore in each circle
  • Now, click on the picture and open the document. You'll find some pictures and names of dinosaurs.
  • Your job is to sort the dinosaurs into the correct diet group. You can just write their names

For todays lesson you will need a centimetres (cm) ruler or tape measure .  If you do not have one at home click on ruler below and print off. 

 

Yesterday you began to develop your understanding of measuring using standard units, and you explored the size of 1 metre which can be written as 1m.  Today you will be exploring measuring in centimetres (cm).  Can you remember how many cm there are in 1m from yesterdays lesson?

Watch the clips below to find out the correct way to measure using a ruler.

  

          

Next print off or draw the dinosaur bones in your book and measure using a cm ruler and write the length inside the bone next to cm

Maths

Open the image for your group and work through the  Big Maths CLIC number questions to develop mathematical vocabulary and use your number knowledge.  Either print off the sheet or write the sums in your book.  

       Hexagons, Diamonds & Hearts                        Stars

              

 

Today you will begin to take part in the weekly Big Maths Beat That challenge.  So before you begin print off the sheet below or write the sums in your book ready to time yourself without working out the answers. 

 

PARENTS IMPORTANT PLEASE READ

The Big Maths challenge is a once a week timed activity and you will be working towards eventually completing this sheet in 30 seconds. You will complete the same sums each week but they will be presented  in different orders. Now you all know from learning about time last week that 30 seconds is not a lot of time and I am not expecting anyone to be able to complete it in 30 seconds on a first attempt.  In fact it will most likely take many weeks for some and others may not get there until towards the end of  year 1.  Read the instructions for your group for a good starting point for your level of learning.  So get comfortable and ask a parent to time you completing the sums in your book or on the sheet.

 

       

 

Stars -  At your level you should be able to mentally recall these addition facts and you will be focusing on improving your time and quick mental recall week by week. 

Hexagons - At your level you may be able to mentally recall simple addition facts or you may need to use the strategy where you put the largest number in your head and count on.  For example 6 + 4, put 6 in your head hold up 4 fingers and count on from 6 until all 4 fingers are added to the 6.

Diamonds - Some of  you may be able to use the same strategy as hexagons to solve or you may need to count out objects and add them together to find your answer.

Hearts - At your level you will need to use objects to count into 2 groups and then count them all  together to find your answer.

WHATEVER STRATEGY YOU USE TO SOLVE PLEASE REMEMBER TO TIME YOURSELF AND WRITE IT IN YOUR BOOK OR ON THE SHEET.  

Topic

Have another go at the dinosaur game and explore what else their is to discover!
