Friday

Good morning Sycamore Class! It’s Friday and the end of your first week of home-learning. How are you feeling about it so far? Has the week gone how you had expected? What are you enjoying, and what is more challenging? Spend a few minutes adding another entry to the diary you started on Monday.

 

Thank you so much to everyone who sent me your acrostic poem. I have put these on the 'Class Gallery' tab on our class page for everybody to enjoy. Well done. They really made me smile.  

 

Did you know that Chester Zoo are doing a 'virtual day at the zoo' today? It looks very exciting. If you want to have a look, you'll need to ask an adult to help you access it on Facebook. I'm looking forward to seeing the giraffe's being fed at 11:00! 

 

 

Active time

Choose a physical activity that you will enjoy. This might be:

  • Daily workouts with Joe Wicks (on youtube)
  • Dance class with Oti Mabuse at 11.30  (you’ll have to ask an adult to access it on Facebook for you).
  • Set up your own carousel
  • How many laps of your garden can you complete in 5 minutes? Can you continue without walking?

 

English

Friday is spellings day, so please practise some of the spelling words you need to learn.

  1. Start with the Year one / two words and find out which ones you still need to learn. You can tick the ones you can spell off by heart. If you are confident with all of these, you can begin learning the Year 3 and 4 words.
  2. Pick 10 of the spellings you don’t yet know and write them out correctly in your English books.
  3. How many times can you write each word in 1 minute? Start with the first word and set a timer for 1 minute. Then get writing! But remember to keep it neat- we’re still working towards those pen licences! Once the minute is up, move onto the next word.

 

Maths

Today is an active maths lesson. You’re going to go on a number hunt around the house and garden. Where in your house do you have numbers? I’m sure they are all around you. Take your maths book with you on your number hunt and write down what numbers you found, and where they were. For example: 

  • Numbers 1 to 12 on the clocks.
  • Number 17 on my car registration number

 

Then answer these questions underneath in your maths books:

  1. What was the biggest number you found?
  2. What was the smallest number you found?
  3. What is the difference between the biggest and smallest number?
  4. How many numbers did you find that are in the 3x table?
  5. Add 5 of the numbers together. What number do you get?
  6. Choose 2 numbers. Take away the smaller number from the bigger number. What number do you get?
  7. Can you make a pattern with any of the numbers?
  8. Tell me another maths fact about your numbers

 

Spend some time practising your times tables too. 

 

Theme

I have heard about lots of people creating colourful rainbows to put up their windows. Then, when people are walking past houses, they can spot how many rainbows they can see- a rainbow hunt! I really liked this idea and thought we could get involved. So, your task for this afternoon is to create a colourful rainbow to put up in your window. This could be in whatever media you have (paint, chalk, crayon, etc). Spend time making it look attractive. Then put it up your window for other people to see and enjoy. If possible, I would love to see pictures of your rainbows! Please ask an adult to take a photo and email to sycamore.millfield@gmail.com so I can share them with the rest of the class.

 

Then continue your research on the Egyptians from yesterday.

 

Reading

As always, make sure you find a relaxed, quiet time to enjoy some reading. If you have a younger brother or sister, you could read a story to them.

 

Happy Friday everybody! Well done for being so adaptable and working so well with your home learning- you’re doing a fantastic job!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with your families.
