Good Morning Ruby Class!
Welcome to a brand new week of home learning! I hope that you have all had a wonderful weekend and that you are ready to learn! Let's find out what we are doing today in our Monday morning message...
Learning Objective: I can subtract by counting back.
Today, we are going to continue looking at subtraction and will focus on how to do this by counting back. This is a skill we are all familiar with! So, how do we use it to subtract? Let's find out by watching this video from White Rose Maths...
This activity is in two parts!
1. Create your own giant number line! You could do this using chalk outside, or by placing number cards in order to 20. Just make sure that your number line is on the floor and that there is lots of space ready for the next part of the activity!
2. Once you have created your number line, I would like you to complete four subtraction sums. These are...
20 - 3 =
9 - 4 =
18 - 2 =
10 - 6 =
To complete these sums on your number line you will need to stand at the first number (on the first sum this would be 20). Then, you should 'jump back' to 'count back' on the number line (on the first sum you would 'jump back' 3). What answer have you landed on?
I hope that you have all had lots of fun with your giant number lines! Now, it is time to practice our 'counting back' skill by completing the worksheets below. You will notice that you have already completed the first four sums on your giant number line!
Learning Objective: I can retell a story.
Today, we are going to begin looking at our new focus text 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers.
We have already made predictions about what we think the story might be about by looking at the illustration on the front cover. Lots of you thought it was about a penguin who got lost and about a little boy who helped the penguin to find his way home. Well, now it is time to find out! Let's read our new story...
To become familiar with the story 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers, I would like you to retell it. There are some different ways that you can do this. Here are some ideas...
Remember, you only need to choose one of these. Alternatively, you may come up with your own idea! Be creative! Whichever way you retell the story, try and include lots of information such as the setting, main characters and key events. You can watch the video again if you need to! Have lots of fun!
Learning Objective: I am learning about alternative pronunciations and spellings ('y' as 'ee').
We are learning about Phase 5 alternative pronunciations and spellings. Today, we will be looking at 'y' sounding like 'ee'. Let's head over to Mr Thorne to find out more...
For today's activities I would like you to focus on all of the alternative spellings that we know for the sound 'ee', otherwise known as the 'ee Sound Family'.
On this worksheet, practice reading words with the 'ee' sound and differentiating between the alterative spellings. Fill in your key with a different colour for each spelling and then colour in the corresponding pictures.
Here is a collection of words that contain the 'ee' sound with alternative spellings. Practice reading each word out loud and highlight/underline the sound. Then match each word with the correct picture.
Learning Objective: I am learning about Christianity.
We are continuing our whole-school learning project on Christianity. To find out what we are learning about today, follow this link...
Learning Objective: I am exploring and responding to different music.
We have been learning about 'The Four Seasons' by Antonio Vivaldi. 'The Four Seasons' is a piece of music which is split into smaller parts. Each part conveys a different season and therefore sounds different!
Today, we will be looking at a new piece of music called 'The Carnival of Animals'. Just like 'The Four Seasons', this piece of music is split into smaller parts. But this time there are fourteen! Each part conveys a different animals.
Close your eyes and listen to 'The Carnival of Animals'. Think about the animal that each part might be conveying. At the end of each part (when you hear applause!) open your eyes and write down which animal you think it is! Before moving on to the next one. Remember, there are fourteen!
Which part of the music was your favourite and why? Discuss this with an adult or sibling then write down your ideas. Include a picture of the animal the piece of music represents!
