Monday

English:

Use your story map to write a recount of your day.

Remember to include all the features of a recount:

  • Past tense
  • Chronological order
  • First person (I, me, my, we)
  • Conjunctions

Topic:

Music

Name five body parts that you can make sounds with. What noises can you make with your fingers, hands, mouth, feet, and other body parts? Create a sequence of different sounds using only one body part. Now can you use two? Move on to using a range of body parts. Invite your family members to join in with you. Don’t forget to record your sequence!

Maths:

Practise your times tables. Get someone in your family to test you!

Task:

P.E

Get together with your family! Let’s do some stretches- 1.) Nice and straight- hands up in the sky. 2.) Now try to touch your feet. 3.) Now you take lead and teach your family some stretches. 4.) You are going to practice skills to help you with your running- Grab 2 boxes and put them on 2 different ends, then put 2 small balls/objects into each basket. 5.) Now get into two equal teams with your family- one on each end. · Start with one person from team 1 who will take the object, run to the team 2, put the object in their basket and go at the back of their line. · Then, a person from team 2 will grab their object, go to team 1, put their object in the box and go at the back of their line- this will continue until everyone has had a go.

Now, get into pairs, choose a referee and each pair to have a race. The referee will tell you who has won. PE- Join Joe Wicks at 9am each morning for a live 30min P.E lesson

Tuesday

English:

Read through your recount with an adult. Have you included capital letters and full stops? Conjunctions? Time adverbials? Is it written in past tense? Use a different coloured pencil to correct mistakes and make any improvements.

Topic:

Music

Have a look around your house for objects which you can use to make a musical instrument with. For example: make a shaker using a plastic bottle and rice, or a guitar using a tissue box and elastic bands. Make and decorate your musical instrument, then use it to play along to your favourite song.

Maths:

Today, practise sharing things into 2 equal groups. This is how you divide by 2. You could use pasta/beads/pencils or anything you can find. Draw 2 circles and share the objects into 2 equal groups. Try writing a number sentence to go with your work. Try to share 14, 18, 8, 20.

Task:

Computing:

You are still researchers: Today you are going to use your pictures to gather data- have a look at your pictures and get ready to use your maths knowledge to create a tally chart. Create and fill in/complete the below table on a word document- then save the file in a new folder named- My project.

Wednesday

English:

Look through some old photographs of a family holiday you have been on. Where did you go? Who did you go with? What did you do when you were there?

Use the photographs or draw pictures to make a story map of your holiday. Make sure the photographs/pictures are in order.

Topic:

Music

Listen to ‘Carnival of the Animals’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1L993HNAa8M&t=11s

Turn away from the screen and think about: Which animal is being represented in this part of the song? Why do you think that? Discuss each part with a family member and justify your decision. After listening to the whole piece create your own ‘Carnival of the Animals’ poster by drawing each animal that you think has been described during the song.

 

Maths:

Today, practise sharing in 2 groups but by drawing your work instead. Draw 2 circles and share the number of dots equally. Then, try to write a number sentence like this:

10 ÷ 2 = 5

Can you share 12 dots?

Can you share 16 dots?

Can you share 8 dots?

Can you share 20 dots?

Task:

Computing:

Today’s computing activity is a bit different- you will be practicing your reading skills using computers/the internet.

Go onto storyonline or log onto oxford owl using your class login/parents can create or use any existing logins they may have. Then, choose a story and read it or hear it being read to you. After that, your parents can either ask you questions about the book to make sure you have been listening carefully or to test your understanding. If you are on oxford owl then you can complete some activities based on the book after you have read it or heard it being read to you (note: some book have activities but some don’t)

(note for parents: if your child doesn’t have Oxford Owl then you can always go onto the website and create a free parents account if you wish to. If this is too difficult then your child can just use storyonline which is easy to access)

Oxford owl: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/

Storyonline: https://www.storylineonline.net/

Thursday

English:

What vocabulary could you add to your story map about your holiday? What time adverbials could you use? What conjunctions?

Practise writing sentences on the back of your story map or underneath the pictures using time adverbials and conjunctions.

Topic:

Music

How many emotions can you name? Listen to the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptK3fzSlcfc How does each piece of music make you feel? Why? What does each piece of music make you think about? For example: happy: eating an ice-cream on a sunny day, playing at the park. Play the music again, and ask chn to use their body to move around (in a safe space) to show each emotion. Afterwards, use the emotion ‘happy’ and create a dance to represent all of the things that ‘happy’ makes you think of, or a drawing.

Maths:

Now that you are good at sharing into 2 groups, can you share objects into FIVE equal groups?

Collect some objects from home. Draw 5 circles and share equally. Write a number sentence to go with each one like this…

Can you share 20?

Can you share 10?

Can you share 30?

 

Task:

R.E

Discuss:

What are the festivals that Christians celebrate?

We will be focusing on Easter.

What is Easter?

What is the purpose of Easter? Why do Christians celebrate Easter?

Watch the video below to help you answer the questions above.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wnbo2AmS3OI

(Note for parents: the purpose of this lesson is for children to understand what it means to be merciful and forgive, as well as link Easter to mercy and forgiveness. Once you have discussed the above questions with the children after they have finished watching the video- you can play a game with them that they can also play with other family members. The children can act out situations where either they or someone else has made a mistake and they or their partner need to be merciful and forgive them for the mistake they have made- to help the children gain a good understanding of what mercy and forgiveness mean).

Friday

English:

Use your story map to write a recount of your holiday. Use the skills you practised previously and try to do this independently if possible.

Topic:

Music

Find out: What is Mozart famous for? Use the website https://www.classicsforkids.com/composers/composer_profile.php?id=46 to answer:

Where was Mozart born? When did he compose his first piece of music? What instruments did he learn to play by the age of 6? How old was he when he wrote his first opera? Can you find out any extra information about his life and music?

Present what you have learnt as a poster, fact file or question and answer sheet.

Maths:

Today, practise sharing in 5 groups but by drawing your work instead. Draw 5 circles and share the number of dots equally. Then, try to write a number sentence like this:

Can you share 12 dots?

Can you share 16 dots?

Can you share 8 dots?

Can you share 20 dots?

Task:

PSHE:

Go outside with a friend, cousin, brother, sister or even mum/dad.

Get a chalk, tell someone in your family to lie down on a clean floor.

Then, draw around their body using the chalk.

Then, along with their help start labelling the different parts of the body (eyes, legs, ankle, wrist, face, hair etc…)

After you have done this start discussing what the body needs to stay active, healthy and filled with energy (think about food- do we need some key things in our diet to help us stay fit and healthy.)
