Tuesday 30th June

Good morning everybody!   We hope you enjoyed your home learning yesterday and are ready for today!  Remember to send your work to your class email addresses:

 

Mr Bemister: otters@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

Ms Edwards: foxes@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

Miss Hancock: badgers@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

 

English:

Today you are going to think about how you could change the story.  The 4 things you need to change today are the main character (Jack), the giant, the hen and the golden harp.

 

In your book:

  1. Draw a picture of your main character and write 3 descriptive sentences about him or her.
  2. Draw a picture of your ‘creature’ at the top of the beanstalk and describe him or her in 3 sentences. Remember your creature needs to be scary or bad – unless you choose to change the ending of the story – then your creature might be something else.  Try to think of mythical creatures, ogres or dragons.
  3. Now draw an alternative for the hen that lays golden eggs and write 3 sentences that describe it.  What magical thing does it produce?  This could be another type of bird or a different animal altogether eg:  a goat with magical milk.
  4. Lastly, draw an alternative for the harp and describe what sound it makes. 

 

Maths:

In maths this week, you will be consolidating your understanding of the number operations, using mental arithmetic and written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You will need to know when to use mental arithmetic and when to use a written method.  

There are 3 great adding and subtracting learner guides and helpful video clips at:

There are also 4 multiplying and dividing learner guides and helpful video clips at:

You can also contact us via email, if you need any help.

Don’t forget to practise Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS)

 

Topic:

This afternoon you are going to learn all about seed dispersal.  Before seeds can grow into new plants, they need to leave the seed pod. If all the seeds a plant produced landed just underneath the parent plant, they would be too crowded, and would not have enough light or water for them all to develop properly. When you plant seeds too thickly in a pot, you can see that they grow tall and leggy, and each plant is weak and spindly.  Plants disperse their seeds in different ways to make sure as many seeds as possible have a good chance of growing into plants.  Have a look at this clip from Maddie explaining seed dispersal in the wild:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJAbo-F6tO4

Now this this short clip:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/znvfb9q

And this great clip showing seeds dispersed by explosion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OB0P3mx_lxY

 

In your books

Use this website to write about seed dispersal:  http://theseedsite.co.uk/dispersal.html

Write a main heading ‘Seed Dispersal’ then use the 5 different methods of seed dispersal as subheadings.  Under each subheading, write a short paragraph explaining the method of dispersal.  You will need to click on the picture and read the information for each type of seed dispersal.  If you can access it, there is also a helpful Powerpoint at the end of this page. 

 

Reading:

Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.  Continue using myON to do your online reading and quizzes at: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html.  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 the Year 2 spellings, then do the Year 3/4.  We will be focusing on 10 spellings every week. On Friday, get someone at home to do your spelling test with you!
