Panda Class Home Learning Friday 5th March

Hi Pandas,

 

it’s the last day of Home Learning!  Hooray!!!

You have all done so well, you should feel very proud of yourselves for all of your hard work!  A huge thank you to all of the grown ups too that have had such an enormous task to make it all happen.

We are all set for next week, to welcome you back; with lots of fun activities.

For today, Friday – use this day to catch up or take it easy.

Don’t forget to do some yoga with Cosmic Kids, or PE with Mr Wright or Joe Wickes.

Enjoy more great stories. You could try making up and writing a story of your own.  Think about some amazing characters; do they have any super powers? What do they look like?

Here’s one of my favourites.

You could plan a teddy bear’s picnic and plan a menu.

What would you make them to eat?  You could draw your picnic food on a plate and label it.

 

Why not colour by numbers

Teddy-Bears-Picnic-Colour-By-Numbers_ver_1

Or a crossword…

Teddy-Bears-Picnic-Crossword

Or if you want a real challenge a Teddy Bears Picnic Sudoku!

Teddy-Bears-Picnic-Sudoku-Differentiated

Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.

Remember for next week, winter uniform please, as we have to have the windows and doors open for ventilation. Jumpers and cardigans will be needed too and a winters coat. Come in your PE kits (with gloves and hats if it’s cold) on a Wednesday and Friday.

Best wishes

Mandy Turner

Panda Class Home Learning Thursday 4th March

Hi Pandas

It’s World Book Day!!! – Is any one dressing up today as their favourite character from a book? Go for it! You may want to wear your pants on top of your clothes to match our story today!

I found this article really interesting ‘why we should turn on the subtitles’

Phonics – follow your schedule.

Reading – enjoy your books, especially on World Book Day.

 

Enjoy this book – Aliens Love Underpants!

There are more stories available on line too, if you wanted another one.

Then, thinking about your favourite alien, either from the book or one of your own, draw the alien and give it some colour; add lots of detail.  What will it look like? How many arms, legs, heads and other more unusual features will it have? Don’t forget a special pair of underpants will be needed!

Once you have created your alien, think about and write a full description of it. Rehearsing, out loud, what you want to write before you write it; say the sentence lots of times before you write, so that you know what you’re writing. Have a think about your letter formation and neatness; is it your best work?

Have a go at these home learning challenges.

aliens-love-underpants-home-learning-challenge-sheet

Here is an activity for you to create your own book mark, for all of that wonderful reading.

world-book-day-design-a-bookmark-activity-english

If you still have any time left, how about having a go at some of these activities?

world-book-day-scavenger-hunt-ages-5-7

Reception – Here is a counting sheet, you may spot somethings from the story…

Year 1 – I have added some handwriting sheets of some of your spellings.  Try to do your neatest handwriting.

Have lots of fun with your favourite stories.

Have a great ‘book’ day.

Rhino Home Learning – Thursday 4.3.21

It’s World Book Day, so today is going to be off our normal timetable so we can all have a bit of fun…. I really hope you have a great day.

Thank you to all of you that sent in your video and your clues. I’ve put a short video together for you to watch, so listen and watch very carefully. It’s not easy to guess, as you have all disguised your voices so well and your masks are brilliant.

I have also put together an answer sheet containing a picture of each masked reader and 3 clues linked to their true identity. Can you guess who each masked reader is?

The Masked Reader Clue Sheet

I will be hosting a zoom on Friday afternoon (1.15pm) to reveal who each masked reader is. For the meeting, have your masks ready to share so you can all reveal who you were. Have your guess sheet handy as well to see how many masked readers you got correct.

Today’s Task:

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to David Walliams talk about his book during the live assembly on Tuesday, which gave me an idea for a task for today.

One of the books he spoke about was called ‘Fing’

The story is about a girl called Myrtle Meek, who has everything…

But everything isn’t enough. She wants more, more, MORE! When Myrtle declares she wants a FING, there’s only one problem… What is a FING?

Mr and Mrs Meek will do anything to keep their darling daughter happy, even visit the spooky library vaults to delve into the dusty pages of the mysterious Monsterpedia. Their desperate quest leads to the depths of the jungliest jungle where the rarest creatures can be found. But will they ever find a FING?

Your task today is to design your very own ‘Fing’

Think about:

  • What does it look like?
  • How does it behave?
  • How would you look after it?
  • What is the best and worst thing about it?
  • What does it eat?
  • Where does it live?
  • What are some unusual facts about it?

Create a ‘double page spread’ for your ‘Fing’ giving as much information about it as possible.

Write a set of instructions for how to look after it as pet. Remember to include a warning if needed!

I really look forward to seeing what you create and it would be great to share these next week in class.

Have a great day

Panda Class Home Learning Wednesday 3rd March

Hi Pandas,

I hope you are having a good week.

Not long now until 8th March… I’m counting down the days!! I can’t wait to see you all.

Continue with Phonics as per the schedule.

Continue reading and enjoying those amazing books!

PE  With Joe Wicks or our own Mr Wright with TWWG ‘Move’ sessions on YouTube.

English  – All Pandas  Enjoy the story of Peace at Last by Jill Murphy.

 

After listening to the story encourage your child to say which parts of the story were their favourite parts and why they like them.  What happened to Mr Large? What was the problem? What were the noises?

Can you create a story map showing the different events that happen as Mr Large tries to get away from the noise to get some sleep.

Story-Map-Worksheets

I would choose Story Map B, from the one in the link.  Add the details from the story into the right areas, thinking carefully about what happened.

Encourage your child to retell the story from their story map – perhaps ‘reading’ it to a younger brother or sister or a favourite teddy.

Maths – All Pandas  (Year one,  continue with your Measures booklet, then have a go at these activities).Try estimating how long a minute lasts for.  Can you count to 60, does it take a minute?

What can you do in a minute? How many times can you write your name in a minute? Look at a clock, what time do you normally get up, eat breakfast, have lunch or get ready for bed?

Have a go at some of these activities to see how many you can do in a minute.

what-can-you-do-in-a-minute-activity-sheet

Mixing paint – Can explore what happens when you mix black and white paint together? Can you mix different shades of grey to paint an elephant with?

See if you can work out what colours would be created by mixing these colours together…

colour-mixing-sums-powerpoint

Can you find out some facts about elephants? Create a fact file for elephants.

You may want to try and draw an elephant of your own; then paint it.

How-to-Draw-an-Elephant-Activity-Sheet

As it is World Book Day tomorrow,  you might want to send me a picture of you and your favourite book. You might want to send me a video of you reading it!  If you’re feeling creative why not dress up as your favourite book character, or draw the character and decorate it.

I will be doing a Zoom session on Thursday at 1:30pm and I will read you one of my favourite books. I will send the link on Class Dojo.

Have a great Wednesday.

Mandy Turner

 

Tiger Class – Home learning – Tuesday 2nd March

All Tigers
