Creative Task: Art Week

Today we are going to learn about neutral colours, brown, black, white and grey. Just like yesterday we can mix these colours to make lots of new colours to paint with.

If we add white to a colour, we can make tints.

Paul Klee was an artist who experimented with all different types of colour.

Paint with tints. Use an A4 piece of paper and lightly draw lines to create blocks like the image above (shade painting) Then:

  1. Paint the top strip on your paper in your chosen colour. Swish, wipe and blot your brush.
  2. Now mix some white paint in to your colour to make a tint. Notice how the paint turns lighter. Paint the next strip down in this colour.
  3. Carry on mixing a little white with your colour and painting a strip until all your strips have been painted in tints. Don’t forget to swish, wipe and blot!

English Task: All about instructions

Carefully read through The Features of Instructions.

 

The Features of Instructions

Instructions are sentences that give commands or orders. They are bossy and tell the reader what to do. They:

• are usually short, sharp sentences that do not contain much description or story language.

• always contain bossy verbs that tell someone what to do or not do. These verbs are always in the present tense.

• are addressed to the reader, as if the reader is being spoken to directly by someone.

• often ‘list’ things to do or avoid doing.

• can be numbered or have bullet points.

Now read the three instructions on Catching a Dragon. Then write the next three instructions.

 

Read How to Catch a Dragon and compare these instructions with your own.

  • Whose might be more successful in helping you to catch a dragon?! Why do you think that?

Mindfulness Task – Body Scan

This is a fantastic activity that children can “take home” with them. It can be particularly useful to do a body scan to help relax before sleep.

Children lay on the floor, with their eyes closed if they are comfortable (or they may prefer to look at the ceiling).

  • Encourage children to pay attention to their feet for 5 or 10 seconds.
    Questions to ask during a body scan:
    – How does this body part feel?
    – Is it cold or warm?
    – Does it feel tight or relaxed?
    – Is all or part of that body part touching the floor?
    – Or clothing?
    – What does that feel like?
  • Move on to their toes, then ankles, then calves and knees. Continue body part by body part until you reach the head.
  • Question how each part of the body feels to bring children’ awareness to their body in the moment.
  • If there is tightness or stress, imagine breathing the stress out of that part of the body with each exhale.

Creative / Mindfulness task: Make a calming glitter Bottle

Preparation

  • Fill a bottle or jar with water, leaving 2-3 cm of space at the top.
  • Add a generous amount of glitter glue to the bottle (or a combination of PVC glue and regular glitter).
  • Seal the bottle well!

Directions

  • Shake the bottle well to mix the glitter, water and glue and repeat these words as you shake it… “Imagine that the glitter is like my thoughts when I’m stressed, mad or upset. See how they whirl around and make it really hard to see clearly? That’s why it’s so easy to make silly decisions when I’m upset because I’m not thinking clearly. Don’t worry this is normal and it happens in all of us.”
  • Now put the jar down and watch what happens when you’re still for a couple of moments. Keep watching. See how the glitter starts to settle and the water clears? Your mind works the same way. When you’re calm for a little while, your thoughts start to settle and you start to see things much clearer.”

English Task:

Looking at description: comparisons

Read the information on Comparisons and learn how to create similes to describe something.

  • Re-read Whale Words using the video and point out all the similes that are used in the text.
  • Think of another sea creature. Draw a picture of your creature and then write several similes to describe it and what it does.

 

Comparisons

 

We can also use comparisons to describe something.

There are two ways we can do this.

 

1. We can say what the thing we are describing is like.

  • Its skin was blue like a summer’s sky.
  • The whale jumped out of the sea like a rocket.

 

2. Or we can compare the thing we are talking by using the word

as, twice.

  • Its skin was as blue as a summer’s sky.
  • The whale jumped out of the water as fast as a rocket.

 

Science Week: Plants

Hopefully yesterday you managed to plant a scrap vegetable or even some seeds you may have had at home. Today I would like you to think about what your seed/plant needs to stay healthy. Can you create a poster to show me what plants need to stay healthy? If you need help watch the video below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=120&v=_RXVhiUnTA8&feature=emb_logo

Challenge: What do we need to stay healthy? Are there any similarities between what we need and what plants need?

English Task:

Read the information sheet on Adjectives and then read the story Whale Words using the either the two videos I have uploaded or the PDF file.

  • What adjectives were in the text? Big, massive, grey, blue, etc.

Pick any one of the whales in the story and describe it using interesting adjectives, perhaps you could also draw picture. You could describe the whole whale or just part of it – it’s eye, it’s flipper, it’s skin, etc.

 

Adjectives...

 

Adjectives are describing words.

They tell us more about a noun – a thing or object, like a whale or

another animal or a part of it, like a fin.

The huge whale

The spotty whale

You can use more than one adjective in the same sentence.

If you do that you usually put a comma between them.

The huge, spotty whale

Often, adjectives come before the noun they are describing.

The huge, spotty whale

But they can also come later in the sentence.

Whales are quite often huge and spotty.

 

Science Week: Plants

Potatoes – What do you know about potatoes? How many different types can you name? What do we eat using potatoes?  Can you make a list of your answers?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xG_Y0HdVmk

 

If you have potatoes that have begun to chit, why not have a go at planting them to see if you can grow your own potatoes.

 

If you don’t have any potatoes why not watch this video on you tube about how to re grow different plants from left overs and have a go at planting one of those.

  • Numbots
  • Bug Club
  • Nessy

Maths:

We are going to take a break from the White Rose Hub lessons for these two weeks to allow everyone to have a break and those who didn’t start at the same time to catch up. We finished on Week 2 Lesson 4 Step 9 – Non Unit Fractions. However White Rose have added some great fun maths lessons that they are updating each day to keep you going throughout the holidays if you would like to try any. Click here to try them out: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/easter-fun/

 

Science – Lost and Found - Materials

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNgh3Q58QoI – listen to the story Lost and Found using the link to YouTube.

Look at the tasks below and select which one you would like to investigate – you can of course choose more than one if you like.

 

Before you start watch this video to ensure the children have a good understanding of what materials are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAkQT1IgNdU

 

Task option 1:

In the story the boy and the penguin have to travel across the sea to the South Pole. Can you investigate what materials would be suitable to make a boat out of? Could you have a go at making different boats using materials around the house and test them?

Remember:

Your boat needs to float – which materials around your house float? Which sink?

Your boat needs to be waterproof – what does this mean?

Your boat needs to hold the boy and the penguin so it needs to be strong – can you add a small weight to your boat to test it?

 

Task option 2:

Research how do penguins stay warm in the freezing weather? - Can you show your research in some way. 

Thinking about this how could the boy keep himself warm? What materials would work best? Can you design an outfit for the boy on his journey?

Draw your design and label the different materials you have used and why you have chosen them.

Spring Break

Now we have reached the Spring Break, we think everyone needs a well deserved rest (teachers, pupils and parents !!), therefore we will not be setting daily tasks on the website. However, we will set a project to complete over the two week holiday as we normally do. As with any holiday period we still expect children to access online learning at home (for help with logins etc check the info page by clicking here). Teachers will not be checking who is going on this daily but will check at the end of the two week holiday.


Please feel free to still add photographs and videos to Tapestry/Dojos as the staff would love to see what the children are getting up to and we know the home school link is now more important than ever. Staff won't be responding to these but will add them to the children's online portfolio.


Daily tasks will resume on the website on 20th April.


Mrs O'Neil Edwards will also be adding a headteacher's challenge to the website for children to work on over the two week holiday.


Have a wonderful Easter, be kind and stay safe. πŸ£πŸŒˆπŸ’–

Tuesday 24th March

Maths Update:

As the messages said yesterday, please do not use the Power Maths books, put them somewhere safe in your house and keep them there until the schools re-open.

 

White Rose Hub are a team of teachers and mathematicians who have for a number of years been supporting schools with planning, lesson ideas and resources of a very high standard.

 

They have just released a website to support all those children who are affected by the school closures with a daily lesson which includes:

  • A short 'teaching' video to watch first which explains the daily topic.
  • A number of activities to practice this skill and a few to challenge you further.
  • The answers for these activities which also shows how they worked out these answers.

These lessons are released every Monday and are organised by Year group (from Foundation Stage through to Year 6)

 

If you don't have printer at home, just use whatever paper you have and write the question out yourself.  Remember, it's all about having a go and doing your best, don't worry if you get stuck and don't give up because as each day goes by they will be going over the same topic / skill and you will get there πŸ‘πŸ».

 

You do not need a login or password, just click here or visit (https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/)

 

They did struggle yesterday due to the number of visitors to their site and have been working through the night to increase their capacity but if it isn't working just leave it for a while and try later.

Tuesday 24th March

Writing Task:

 

Spelling Task:

Investigate the past tense.

Discuss what the ‘past tense’ means using the words ‘today’ and ‘yesterday.’ E.g. Today I play in the garden, yesterday I played in the garden. Today I walk to school, yesterday I walked to school.

Use a book that your child enjoys and find some examples of the past tense where -ed is added. You might find that some of these words sound as though they end with just -d or even -id or -t, but your child can be reminded that these words tell us about something that happened yesterday, so they end with -ed.

Outdoor Learning Task:

Can you use natural items from your garden to create an Andy Goldsworthy inspired piece of land art?

 

 

Don't forget to upload pictures/work on your Class Dojo portfolio. 

 

 

Monday 23rd March 

Writing Task:

Think of a new and exciting game that you and your family could play inside or in the garden. Think about games you may have played together in the past, can you use it as inspiration to create a new game? 

Suggestions: obstacle course, hopping race, hoopla with Cheerios and a straw or basketball with coloured balls and each colour is worth certain points. 

When you have thought of a new game, give it a name and write a set of instructions of how to play. When you have done this upload a picture on Class Dojo and we can all play these games at home with our own families. It would be lovely to see people playing these games over the next few weeks. 

 

Remember instructions need:

  • A title
  • A what you will need section
  • Bossy verbs
  • Time conjunctions
  • Diagrams 
  • Bullet points and numbers

 

Outdoor Learning Task:

Go outside into your garden and look for signs of Spring. Whilst outside, can you make a list or draw a labelled picture of the signs you notice. Remember what we looked for together on our Winter and Autumn walks in school. 

Creative Task:

You may have seen the # fill your windows with rainbows this week, which is a game children are playing as they go outside to exercise/have a walk in their street or near their home. It would be lovely if you created a rainbow poster to display in your house for other children to spot. You can use paint, coloured pencils, felts anything you have at home you may even want to write a little message.
