Welcome to Wellbeing Wednesday, Sycamore Class
Well done to those of you who tried really hard to learn and perform the poem last week. Here are the videos that were sent in, for you to enjoy J
Today, I’d like you all to choose what you would like to read from the Book of Hopes.
It’s always really important to question what you read and to make sure that you make sense and understand what you are reading. So, today, in the story/poem that you choose to read, can you find 5 words that you are unsure of the meaning of and then use a dictionary to find their meaning? If you do not have a dictionary, please use www.dictionary.com
Explain the meaning of the word in your own words.
For example, this would be how I would set my work out in my English Home School book:
‘The Seed’ by Andy Shepherd
Page 111Barged This means that you bump and collide into things. In the story, Grandma barged into the room.
Maths: Wrap up time!
Today will be the last of our Home Learning lessons about Time! I have been so impressed with all your hard work. I know that lots of you are now feeling much more confident about measuring time, estimating time, reading and telling the time.
So, for today, there is a fun little song for you to watch.
Then I would like you to create a poster which shows all your learning about time and what you now know!
Make sure you show your understanding of:
Years, Leap years and months of the year
Units of measuring time: seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months
Reading the time on a clock
Showing the time using 24 hour
I look forward to seeing your creative ways to show all your learning!
Sometimes our thoughts can swirl and whirl around in our heads and make us feel all jumbled up. Today’s Wellbeing activities will help you with these feelings. If you have a spare jar and some glitter you could have a go at making something fun, (details in the 'Task' file) which will also be helpful to you when you are feeling like this too! Then have a go at the Journal activity.
If you do make a jar, send in a picture of you with it! It would be lovely to see how creative you can be with your jars!
On this page, you can watch an introduction film about Elgar’s Enigma Variations. Elgar wrote the variations about his friends, using music to describe people’s characters and creating musical portraits. You can then watch the full orchestral performance too, enjoy! J
Then I’d like you to spend some time thinking about one of your friends. Can you draw a portrait of your friend and then write some words and phrases about your friend which explains what it is about them that makes them special to you.
Perhaps an adult can take a photo of you with your work and then send it to the class email so we can have a section in our class gallery about our friends?
It would be nice if you could perhaps send a copy of your work to your friend too, I’m sure it would make them smile and cheer them up.
Have a lovely afternoon J
