Striving for Excellence in a happy,secure and Christian environment

Week Beginning 19.10.20

Monday Maths - Use the video below to remind you what the coins look like. Look at the coins or notes in your parents wallets/purses (ask first!) Look at the coins in your own savings pot or piggy bank. Can you find similarities or differences between the different coins or notes? What do you notice about them?
Set up a roleplay shop in your bedroom and add a price tag to each of your toys. 

Tuesday Maths -  Using the coins you have found, can you order them in value? Now try ordering them by size. Are the coins still in the same place? Which coins moved?
Take a handful of coins and place them in one pot/bowl, now take a second handful of coins and place in a second pot. Which pot is worth more?

Wednesday Maths - Answer some of the addition questions about coins: "How much is in the jar?" "How much does it cost?" 
Practise answering questions such as:  5p + 5p =        or      10p + 10p + 5p = 
If you have 50p to spend at your shop, how much can you buy?


Thursday Maths - Continue to practise addition questions using money. Take 2 coins from a purse and work out the total. Then add another coin. What is your total now? Try to record this as a number sentence as shown above. 

Friday Maths - How many different ways can you make 50p with coins? How many different ways can you make 10p? What about 25p? Draw or write the different calculations you could use to make these amounts. Make these amounts: 50p, 10p, 25p, 3p, 13p, 27p, 52p, £1, 76p.


UK Coins Explained

Monday English - What is a verb? Use the list of verbs below and act them out with a grown-up. A Verb is a "doing word." It describes what the subject in a sentence is doing.

The cat is drinking the milk. 

In this sentence, the word "drinking" is the verb. Can you make your own list of verbs?

Tuesday English - Remind yourself what a verb is (see Monday lesson.) Using the example sentence in the document below, can you colour in the verbs in blue. 
Then think about what an adverb is. An adverb describes how the verb is done. 

The cat is drinking the milk hungrily. 
The boy is running quickly. 

In these sentences "hungrily" and "quickly" are the adverbs. Now colour in the adverbs in red. 

Wednesday English - Watch the video in this link to learn more about adjectives: 
Now use the attached sheet below to identify adjectives in the example sentences. When you have done this use the pictures to write your own sentences and use adjectives to describe the different fires. 

Thursday English - Use what you have learned about verbs and adjectives to describe a fire in your own poem. Look at some of the poetry below to inspire you. You might find it easier to write a list of fire verbs, adverbs and adjectives first to get you started. 
Friday English -
Edit your poem by reading it aloud to check it makes sense. Ask a grown-up to check the spellings with you. You could use a dictionary if you have one or ask a grown-up to help you check the spellings in an online dictionary. 
Then write your poem up neatly. You might want to draw a picture to go with your poem.  You could record yourself reading your poem or take a picture of it and send it to your teachers. 

Monday Topic - Art: This week in Art we will be using oil pastels to create images of fire. Can you use colouring pencils or pens at home to create your own colourful fire images?



Tuesday Topic - History: This week in History we will be reflecting on how the Great Fire of London changed life for people in 1666. We will also be playing an online game to check our understanding of some of the key facts.


Wednesday Topic - Music: We have been learning to sing "London's Burning." Can you practise this song and then perform it to a parent, sibling or even your toys? Remember to say the words clearly and use actions to help you. 

London's Burning

Thursday Topic - Science: Use the website below to learn more about materials.

Friday Topic - PSHE: We will be looking at the story, "Ruby's Worry." You can find the youtube video for this story below. Talk to your child about what is worrying them and how we can manage our worries. They might be able to tell you that to manage worries we sometimes talk to people we trust, distract ourselves by doing things we enjoy or maybe even by doing something about the problem. They could draw a picture of their biggest worry at the moment and then draw what they are going to do to help themselves.
