Good Morning Sycamore Class,
Today is the last day of April, this month seems to have gone really quickly and summer will soon be here. Although the rain we’ve had over the last few days makes me think it might be a little while yet!
I hope you have had a good week so far. I’ve seen some brilliant work that you’ve sent to Mrs Crosswell. I loved seeing all of your favourite walks, it was very interesting.
Choose something active to get your day started. You could pick from the list below, or think of your own.
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.
Today I would like you to improve some basic (boring!) sentences. We’ve done this activity in class so I’m hoping you’ll think of some brilliant improvements.
You could add
Here are some more examples of fronted adverbials and noun phrases. Remember to write using your best handwriting.
Here are the basic sentences that need improving:
My improved sentence example:
Last week in maths you created a bar graph. I was really impressed with these and interested to see the different things you had created data on. Today I want you to answer questions about graphs. The first questions are about my graph.
Once you’ve answered the questions for my graph, think of at least 4 facts that you can tell me about your graph and write them down. For example “I saw 3 more blackbirds than robins”, or “I rolled the dice 25 times in total.”
This term, our science topic is plants. I know that lots of you looked for wild plants on your favourite walks, and I’m sure lots of you have some interesting plants in your garden too. Look carefully at some grass and you will probably see daisies and maybe some yellow dandelions, or their seed heads. This week, I would like you to write a list of all the plants, flowers and trees that you can think of. Start by going out in your garden and naming as many as you can, then add to this like when you’re next out on your daily walks. If you’re stuck, start by thinking of the names of our classes in school! I’ll start you off
Plants and Trees that I know
Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to be looking more about how plants grow and I’m hoping that we can all plant some seeds. Please can I ask parents to try and get a packet of seeds for your child to plant; cress, broad beans, sunflower seeds, or whatever else is available. These can be purchased from the supermarket or online. I will provide online alternatives if you aren’t able to get any, and please make sure you continue to follow Government guidelines, but it would be amazing if you can get some seeds..
Have a fantastic day!
