Wednesday 1st July

Good morning everybody!  We hope you are all well and are keen to get started!

English:

Today you are going to plan your story - as a story map or a comic strip. Remember you can make as many changes as you like.  You can even have a happy ending for your ‘giant’ and a sad ending for ‘Jack’.  It’s all up to you.

Here is a reminder of the story stages, to help you plan:

  1. Jack went to the market to sell the cow and he exchanged it for some magic beans. 
  2. When he got home, his mother was angry - and she threw the beans out of the window.
  3. The next morning, there was a massive beanstalk, reaching to the sky. 
  4. Jack climbed the beanstalk, up through the clouds, to the top.
  5. When Jack reached the top, he saw a massive castle.  He sneaked inside, heard a noise and hid.
  6. Suddenly a huge giant appeared.  He had a hen that laid golden eggs and a harp that played beautiful music, when he asked it to sing.
  7. The giant fell asleep, so Jack crept out and took the hen and the harp and clambered down the beanstalk.
  8. The harp cried for help, so the giant awoke and chased Jack.
  9. When Jack reached the ground, his mother cut down the beanstalk with an axe and the giant fell to his death.
  10. Jack and his mother lived happily ever after.

 

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:

Rapid recall whiteboard - Choose a number and complete your board.

 

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

Topic:

This afternoon you are going to learn about germination.  Look at this amazing time lapse clip showing a seed germinating and growing into a plant:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w77zPAtVTuI

Imagine you are a seed, slowly germinating, pushing your root down into the earth and sending a shoot up to the light. Write an acrostic poem, vividly describing the journey of the germinating seed.

 

GERMINATION or GERMINATING

 

Here are some words to help start each line:

Germinating, gradually, growing, gently, easily, every, effortlessly, earth, roots, rising, reaching, moving, my, in, inching, I, next, now, nearly, a, almost, above, and, the, tall, tiny, thin, on...

Try to use technical vocabulary too:  roots, stem, stalk, soil, earth, seed…

 

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!
