Thursday 2nd July

Good morning everyone!

 

We hope you enjoyed painting with chlorophyll yesterday. Today you are going to create your own dream garden.

We would like to see how you are getting on, so remember you can send us your work on our class email addresses below:

Enjoy!

English: Nursery Rhyme

 

Today you are going to write your own nursery rhyme about seeds.

 

Watch the video clips about seeds:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkFPyue5X3Q

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zxfrwmn/articles/z28dpbk

 

Role: Seeds

Audience: Nursery/Foundation children

Format: Nursery Rhyme

Topic: Explain what you do and why you are important.

 

Scientific vocabulary you could include: dormant, water, minerals, roots, temperature, light, germination, sprouted or adult.

 

Or if you are going to focus on dispersal of seeds you could include: disperse, transported, wind, float, glide, spin, pods, animals, hooks, grow and maybe even explode!

 

Read through the nursery rhymes to remind you of their structure and to inspire you.

 

Nursery rhymes can be as simple as a few rhyming lines about something you like (or maybe something that you don’t like). Here is one about a bicycle:

 

Bicycle, Bicycle, ride me around.
Up on the seat with my feet off the ground.
All through the country and all through the town.
Bicycle, Bicycle, ride me around.

 

Here is another about rain:

 

It’s raining down
in London town.
It’s raining up in Leeds.
The rain that rains
sustains the grains,
but also feeds the weeds.

 

And here is one about spicy hot chilli peppers:

 

Chilli pepper, chilli pepper, hot, hot, hot!
Mommy likes to cook you in her great big pot.
Daddy thinks you’re wonderful but I do not.
Chilli pepper, chilli pepper, hot, hot, hot!

Good luck and have fun!

Maths

 

This week you are going to use your knowledge of the four operations to consider specific properties of numbers.  

 

Today you are going to learn the correct order of operations and use this to help solve multi-step calculations.

 

Now have a look at the main maths task below:

If you need another reminder the order of operations, look at the weblink and shared example below:

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z69k7ty/articles/z24ctv4

Now choose from the mild, spicy or hot challenges. (If you feel confident try more than one!

If you are feeling really confident with the order of operations, challenge yourself with these extra mastery challenges:

Now complete your propeller board using the numbers Side A 30-90 : 42

                                                                                  Side B 10-90 : 22

 

Also remember to keep practising your times tables on TTRS.

Topic:

 

Plant hunt or Garden Design

 

If you are able take a walk with your parent/carer around your garden or a local field/park. See how many of the plants you can find, ticking them off as you go. Discuss with the adult the reasons behind different parts of the plants that you find e.g. brightly coloured flowers, thick stem etc.

 

OR

 

If you are unable to go outside take a virtual tour of various interesting gardens at https://letsgowiththechildren.co.uk/virtual-garden-tours/ or how about having a look around Prince Charles’ garden! https://artsandculture.google.com/exhibit/igLSEOWqhVHoJw  Click and drag to explore The Front Garden of Highgrove House in 360 degrees on Google Street View. Work your way through the tour to discover some secrets and interesting facts.  Then please read through the attached document ‘Garden Designs’ for inspiration and then have a go at creating a fun, imaginative, dream garden.

Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.  You can now also go on: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html to do your online reading and quizzes too! We can see how many books you have read and how you are doing on your quizzes. So go on, let’s get reading!

 

Spellings:

Please practise your spellings daily. This week’s spellings are below. You will need to see which ones you want to work on. If you can spell all of the Year 3/4 words, then do the Year 5/6. We will be focusing on 10 spellings every week. On Friday, get someone at home to do your spelling test with you!
