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!
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.
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
Miss H’s group
Mrs M and Ms L’s groups
Please also practise:
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)
Firstly, here are the answers to the questions I asked yesterday:
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.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) .
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!
