Wednesday 20th January

Hello Ruby Class! 

I hope that you all enjoyed our topic lesson yesterday afternoon all about the animals of Antarctica! Which animal did you choose to find out more about? Don't forget to send this over to me so I can share it with the rest of the class! Here is your Wednesday morning message...

Wednesday Morning Message

Let's begin by reading our class story. What do you think the giraffe will do? Let's find out in the next part of our story 'The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me' by Roald Dahl...

PSHE

Learning Objective: I can recognise right and wrong.

 

Today in PSHE we are going to be learning about what is right and what is wrong. Let's start off with this fantastic song from BBC Teach...! Be a 'supermover'!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-pshe-right-and-wrong-with-naomi-wilkinson/zvmcpg8

I really hope that you enjoyed that! Of course, it is not always easy to know what is right and wrong and sometimes it can be difficult to make the correct choice. This is called a moral dilemma. Find out more here...

Right or Wrong Moral Dilemmas

Activity

On the activity sheet, there are a number of stories and for each story there is a 'right' and 'wrong' answer. Read each story then place each answer in the correct column. If you are unsure, it may be helpful to talk about some of the stories with an adult!

Extension Activity

Can you think of a time when you had a moral dilemma? Remember, this is when you are unsure about what the right choice is. Discuss your moral dilemma with an adult or sibling, then write some sentences describing...

  • What the situation was.
  • What your choices were.
  • What you decided to do and why. 

You could even describe a time when you made the wrong choice. What did you learn from making this choice?

Maths

Learning Objective: I can add by counting on. 

 

Today, we will be moving on to our new topic 'Addition and Subtraction' and we will begin by learning how to count on. Take a look at this video to find out more...

Maths 20 01

Activity

Please complete the activity that I have outlined in the video to practice counting on. As I have explained, we will be looking at counting on in more depth tomorrow. Today is all about practicing this skill and having fun!

Guided Reading

Learning Objective: I can predict what might happen next. 

 

This week, we will be revisiting the story of 'The Runaway Iceberg' with Gaspar and Rossi. First of all, I would like you to read the story again. As before, there is an eBook if you would like to read the story yourself and also a video of me reading the story for you. 

The Runaway Iceberg Narrated eBook

After you have read the story, there are two activities that I would like you to complete...

 

Activity One

In English, we have been looking at adjectives. Can you remember what an adjective is? An adjective is a describing word! To begin, I would like you to practice using adjectives. Read each sentence and select the correct adjective from the bottom of the worksheet. 

Activity Two

Then, I would like you to have a go at writing your own story about Gaspar and Rossi! What could their next adventure be? It may be helpful to discuss your ideas or create a story map before you begin. Try and include lots of adjectives!

Extension Activity

Did you enjoy the story of 'The Runaway Iceberg'? What was your favourite part? Write a book review! You can use this template to help you. 

Phonics

Learning Objective: I am learning about long vowels.

 

Today, in Phonics, we will be looking at long vowels. Let's take a look at what long vowels are with the Alphablocks...

Long Vowels

Our lesson today will be a little be different as I would like you to watch the video below and work with me as we read and differentiate between long and short vowel sounds. Let's begin...

For these worksheets, I would recommend completing the reading tasks orally with an adult or sibling, then writing the words in your exercise book.

Activity Three
