Friday 1st May 2020

Hello Sycamore Class!

It’s Friday the 1st of May, also known as ‘May Day’. This is a festival that celebrates the arrival of Spring. Traditionally, it’s celebrated by children dancing around a Maypole holding on to colourful ribbons. I’m not sure that the weather is going to be good enough for any dancing today, but spring is definitely my favourite month. I love seeing the baby animals in their fields and all of the flowers starting to grow. You definitely did not disappoint with the list of plants and trees that you can name yesterday, well done Sycamore Class!  

 

Active Start

You might want to dance around a Maypole to celebrate May Day, or you could choose something active from the list below. Let me know if you’ve done some amazing exercise that might inspire your classmates and I can add it to the list.

  • Joe Wicks workout
  • Oti Mabuse is still doing her daily dance sessions on YouTube (Oti Mabuse Official).
  • Yoga with Cosmic Kids Yoga (https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga)
  • How many laps of you garden can you run in 10 minutes? Record the number and see if you can beat it tomorrow.
  • Set up a carousel of activities in your garden. Use what you can find to make an obstacle course- a slalom to run around, things to jump, something to climb under, some skipping, jogging on the spot, star jumps
  • Choose your favourite song and create a dance routine to go with it. Practice until you’re happy with it.

 

Daily Jobs

  • Read for at least 20 minutes. Choose somewhere comfortable with your favourite book! Don’t forget, you can also read magazines, internet articles, read online using your Bug Club/ Active Learn login. If you have younger brothers or sisters you could read them a story too.
  • Practice your spellings- choose 5 from the list in your pack. Use ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ to practise them, like we do in class.
  • Practice your times tables. You could do this by writing them down, playing ‘hit the button’ (or other online games on Active Learn), make up a song or rhyme to go with the times tables you’re practicing.

 

English

It’s Friday spellings day. Your scribble spellings from last week were brilliant, well done! When we come back to school, we are all going to be spelling pros!  

The spelling pattern we’re going to look at today is the ‘ey’ pattern. Read through the words in your list below. Do you know what each of them means? Look them up in a dictionary if you’re not sure

hey

they

obey

grey

prey

 

Please also practise: 

that

when

who

hey

they

grey  

obeyed

prey

survey

surveyed

convey

disobey

disobeyed

  • Practise each of your spellings. Today I want you to make your work colourful! This should help you to remember the spelling patterns. Use some coloured pencils or pens. Here are some ideas on how you could do this:

hey hey hey    (write the words in different colours)

they they they     (write each letter in a different colour)

grey grey grey     (create a pattern with your colours)

 

  • Can you find each of the words on the wordsearch (At the bottom of the page). The answers are on the second page for when you think you’ve found them all.

 

  • Choose 4 words and write a sentence for each. Make sure you spell the words correctly. Try to make your sentences interesting, just like the brilliant ones that you improved yesterday.

 

Maths

Firstly, here are the answers to the questions I asked yesterday:

  1. Which car colour was the most common to go past my house?  Silver and grey (8 cars)
  2. What was the colour of car that I saw 4 of? (Blue)
  3. How many black and blue cars did I see in total? (7 black and blue cars- 3 black and 4 blue)
  4. How many more silver and grey cars did I see than red? (3 more, because there were 5 red cars and 8 silver/grey cars. 8 is 3 more than 5.)
  5. What was the total number of cars that I saw altogether? (I saw 24 cars)

 

Today I want you to answer questions about different graphs. Here are some challenge cards for you to complete. Aim to complete at least 4 full questions. I’m sure some of you could answer all of them! Make sure you look carefully at the scale on the left hand side- they don’t all go up in ones. I will post the answers next week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sing Up song of the week:

Friday afternoon is usually time for singing. On Monday, Mrs Crosswell introduced you to the Sing Up song of the week. Visit https://www.singup.org/singupathome/song-of-the-week

 

And you’ll find ‘Wiggle Jiggle.’ As well as practising the song, there are some fun activities that you can enjoy too.

 

Fun-time Friday

I’ve got that Friday feeling and want to do something fun and creative! What I would love you all to do is create a self-portrait (draw a picture of yourself!). This can be with pencil, crayon, wax, chalk, paint, or any other type of media you can think of. Try and make it look as much like you as possible. Here is a guide to help you with the proportions of your face.

 

 

 

Once you are happy with it, ask your adult to take a photo and email it to me (sycamore.millfield@gmail.com) .

 

Now for a bit more fun! Once I have received lots of pictures, I am going to create a gallery of these, but I’m not going to say who’s portrait it is. Next week I will share the gallery with you all, and you have to guess which portrait belongs to which of your classmates!

 

 

That’s the end of another brilliant week of home learning. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend. Hopefully the weather will get better, otherwise our daily walks will have lots of puddle splashing!
