Practise Play Countdown. Highlight the sound button that makes the /m/ phoneme in each word. Apply Ask children to help you write a sentence on the whiteboard. A small crumb is under my thumb. Swimming makes my toes go numb. This summer, my mum met a mouse.


Science

Animals - Humans


All about me! Children should make an information card about themselves which includes their full length photograph, a self-portrait drawing and any distinguishing features. Use the photograph to encourage children to make a labelled diagram of themselves labelling the different body parts. Which words do they use? Which ones are they less sure about? Challenge them to add more than ten labels. Start to make a class list of body parts.

 Flashcards: Speed Trial, Flashcards: Time Challenge.

Practise saying the /oa/ phoneme. Play Phoneme Spotter. Read the Phoneme Spotter text together. Give children copies of the text in pairs and ask them to identify all the words containing today's phoneme. Share results. Identify all the different graphemes that can be used to represent the phoneme. Investigating Alternative Spellings /oa/.


Science

Task 1

Introducing the concept of a waterproof material

§ The last thing an explorer wants is to do is get wet. What materials would help to keep them dry?

Challenge

§ Water tray challenge: Challenge the children to make a container, such as a small cardboard box, waterproof using only the materials provided (small bags, foil, cling film, bubble wrap, paper, etc.) What will they put in their container to keep dry (e.g. dry soil/foodstuffs/cereal)?

§ Ask them to evaluate how successful they were. If they did it again what would they do differently? If their container leaked, can they identify where the water got in? This helps children to understand that water can get through even the tiniest of spaces and leads into an introduction as to why some materials are more waterproof or better at absorbing liquid than other materials.

Practical investigations: Comparative / fair testing

§ Practical investigations in this unit should focus on ‘Which is the best material for…?’ It is not important what the children test but the most appropriate properties for this age range would be waterproofing, absorbency or strength (e.g. of paper).

§ It is essential that teachers discuss opportunities that have been provided in the Foundation Stage, try to extend these and avoid repetition. Foundation stage focuses more on experiencing the different properties whereas KS1 is more concerned with being able to measure how waterproof, absorbent or strong a material is.

§ Testing materials is an ideal opportunity to model and practise designing a comparative test or a fair test investigation.

§ Below are some suggestions for practical investigations for comparing materials which would link to this theme. Select from the list rather than doing all of the suggestions. It may be appropriate to design a character who asks the children for some help so they have a purpose for the test.

§ Children could consider what is the best material for:

-  An umbrella cover or canopy to keep their character dry.

-  A cover for an outdoor den or a shelter for an explorer.

-  An outdoor coat for an explorer teddy.

-  A waterproof bag for a pirate explorer to keep his treasure map in.

Children should consider how they will conduct the test? How will they record? What are the rules for each test?

 

§ Provide children with six to eight material samples, such as cotton, felt, wool square, foil, paper, and ask them to choose two they think will be quite good at keeping things dry (waterproof ) and two which they think will not. These will be the four materials they are going to compare by testing. This provides some discussion and thinking regarding the experiment method, rather than just allowing the children to follow a set of instructions.

Give children a spare piece of fabric (one which is not very waterproof) and ask them to watch what happens when they add some water to the material. They could pour it on over a tray or drip it on or just put the material in the water. Collect their ideas and then ask them to decide how they will test the other materials that they have. If they need help, ask them what the object needs to do i.e. stop the water coming through, so they need to test how much water comes through. Give them some choices about the method, such as the ideas below, if they do not think of any ideas in a group discussion:

Phonics

We are learning alternative spellings for the /igh/ phoneme.

Play the game Flashcards to practise reading GPCs that have been learned in earlier phases Flashcards: Speed Trial, Flashcards: Time Challenge.

Teach Ask children to remind each other of the Best Bet when spelling words with the /igh/ phoneme.

Play Quickwrite. Words: might, bright, strike, kite, behind, cried, dry, reply. Encourage children to think about the phonemes that they can distinguish easily first. Then think carefully about the tricky part of the word (the /igh/ phoneme).

Practise reading sentences. This could be individually, in pairs, as a class or a combination of all three. I might describe my eyes as light, bright and nice. I got quite a fright when she tried to fight me. Tonight, a slice of lime pie will be a delight.

 

ART

Extensive drawing and painting will help children develop and improve their observational skills in this landscape theme. There is an opportunity within this theme to introduce children to landscape artists for them to discuss and evaluate and begin to express their likes and dislikes about both the media used and the subject. Possible artists include Monet and other Impressionists. Children can discuss how Seurat’s technique changed into Pointillism, and Cezanne’s landscapes developed into a more block-like solid style.

 

Discuss weather changes and their impact on colour. Monet repeatedly painted the same views in response to different times of day and light changes as well as weather conditions. The children could be introduced to British landscape artists such as Constable and Turner and compare them with more modern artists such as David Hockney who also uses an iPad and the app ‘Brushes’ to sketch directly out in the environment. There are many apps available for children to use including free apps such as ‘Inspire’.

 

Drawing

§ Make observational landscape drawings, preferably using the school outdoor space if appropriate or with photographs if not.

§ Experiment with mark-making, using a range of pencil grades, charcoal, graphite sticks and pens on both small and large scale works, as individuals and in groups.

§ Make drawings and experiment making shades and tones in greys using chalk and charcoal. Encourage children to use smudging techniques to suggest hills and shapes and overwork for trees.

We are learning alternative spellings for the /f/ phoneme.

Practise spelling the tricky words: some, come, who, were.

Write the words fix, cliff, phone, cough on the whiteboard. Ask children to read the words aloud to each other and sound talk them. Which phoneme do these words all contain? Ask children to sound talk each word as you draw sound buttons. Highlight the button that makes the /f/ phoneme in each word. Point out that as gh only makes the /ph/ sound in a few unusual words, it makes sense to learn these as tricky words. Ask children to help you write a sentence on the whiteboard. The dolphin flaps his fins. The fox huffs and puffs and coughs. Get off the phone!


Design /Technology

(This can be done over a couple of days as it is a big task!)

Last week you thought about a structure that you could design and create, you thought about who would be using your structure and you thought about current structures around you. You then moved on to answering specific questions about your structure.

 

This week you are going to design and make your structure.

 

 

Focused tasks

§ Investigate how to make simple structures stand up.

§ Explore using reclaimed materials, simple art straw/card structures, construction toys, small world structures that will come apart into separate components.

§ Teach the children how to make a structure more stable.

§ Teach how to make components (e.g. rolled paper legs/slide chute component) stiffer/stronger.

§ Teach how to join component parts – glue/masking tape/hot glue gun - with close supervision.

Teach appropriate vocabulary (tools; materials; components; technical vocabulary).

§ Children evaluate existing products, investigating how they have been made.

§ Encourage drawing of examples which they feel achieve their purpose (fit the toy intended to use it, slide smoothly, stand with stability, strong enough for weight of 'user' etc.). Add annotations if appropriate. With teacher support, decide on suitable design criteria.

§ Select appropriate materials and techniques from the focused tasks (limit the range to those explored). Explain using the terms first, next and last. Children should test and adapt at each stage of the making process, adjusting their design by choosing different components or materials, or by adapting the method of joining, stabilising and strengthening.

§ Children should explain which materials they are using and why, naming the tools they are using.

§ Encourage them to talk about their product as they make it and discuss good and bad points.

§ Test products in terms of user (e.g. try out with e.g. teddy/small world toy etc.) and in terms of purpose (e.g. is it slippy enough for Teddy to slide down?) Adjust and adapt (iterative process) before the final evaluation.

Science

Sorting materials according to their properties

Sort / Group / Compare / Classify: Properties and names of common materials.

Choose several sorting experiences from the ideas below so that children can gain confidence in using the appropriate language and to develop their grouping and classifying skills, ensuring that all children attempt the main sorting task.

 

§ In the great outdoors! - Collect five objects from outside and order them from hard to soft, rough to smooth, bendy to rigid, etc.

§ Outdoor bingo - Provide the children with a blank A3 card bingo grid and ask them to suggest a property for each box, e.g. rough, shiny, soft, prickly, see through, dull, long, smooth, thin, wet, sharp, etc. Ask them to find objects in the outdoors and tape or place them on the appropriate space on their grid. Can they identify items which could be put in more than one box? Finished bingo grids can be displayed in the classroom or photographed for a class book.

§ ‘I Spy’ treasure? - Create a picture collage and place on the whiteboard some ideas for I Spy collages can be found on the Scholastic website (here). Ask children what they can see in the picture. Next, ask them to choose an object and without telling their partner what it is, describe it to them and say what it is made from. Can their partner identify the item from its description? Can they find it in the picture? Provide children with a set of resources to make their own ‘I Spy’ collection? What will it be a collection of? Can they describe different objects in their collection? They may find it useful to have the sentence frames below:

 

All of my objects are__________ but the ball is _____________and _____________ e.g. All of my objects are bumpy but the ball is bumpy and stretchy.

 

All of my objects are made from ____________ and they are ________________ e.g. All of my objects are made from metal and they are shiny.

 

Ask children to make a second I spy collection from, for example, just natural materials or from just materials that float on water.

§ Odd one out - Provide children with three objects made from different materials and ask them to choose which object is the odd one out and why. How many different ideas can they come up with? Can they use natural, man-made and different property words (rough, smooth, stretchy, shiny, etc.) to explain their odd one out – developing scientific vocabulary. This would make a good assessment task to check on their understanding and use of language associated with this task.

Design /Technology

Last week you thought about a structure that you could design and create.

 

This week continuing in the booklet you began to make for your structure, you need to think about these things:

 

Evaluation of existing products

Please make sure this is included in your planning booklet

§ Research existing products, investigating actual examples wherever possible.  (As we aren’t allowed to go into playgrounds / certain areas at the moment, maybe you could take a photo of the structure you are building or find photographs online.)

§ If available, explore products in the local environment e.g. local playground, otherwise small world structures, as a last resort photographs. (See above)

Questions

§ What is this? Who uses it?

§ What is it made of? Why does it use metal/wood/plastic?

§ Is it rough or smooth?

§ Is it stiff or bendy?

§ Why does it stand up not fall down?

§ How does it work?

Plus questions related to detail e.g. Why does it have steps? Does it have any safety features?

 

Please make sure you include these questions in your planning booklet and try to answer them as best you can.

PE –

§ During KS1, pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others.

 

§ They should take part in simple orientation activities using maps and diagrams. This will lay the foundations for future outdoor and adventurous activities in which children learn to use simple maps and follow simple trails.

 

This theme is an ideal opportunity to introduce children to trails. These provide a variety of learning opportunities including observation, self-reliance, route finding and memory.

Task 1 -Ask children to follow a trail marked by arrows, or a long piece of string that goes round the garden When they find an object, picture or shape on the trail, they should match these up to the pictures on a check sheet..

Follow on task (This focuses on observation and memory)

Set out a string trail around the garden then tie a variety of objects to it. Ask the children to follow your trail. As the objects are discovered they must try and remember the items. When they have completed the trail the objects are written down or told to a partner. Did they see all the objects? Repeat to see if they can find any they have missed.

Geography

Children need to experience north, south, east and west as directions, not just marks on a map. Ask them to stand in the garden and point north then turn to the east, south and west. Next, introduce movement, i.e. travel north then turn and move east etc. Can they name features north of the house or which direction they face as they look out of their living room window? The 'Using a compass and reading maps' clip from the BBC Bitesize website (https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/using-a-compass-and-reading-maps/z77tf4j )  is a useful tool to support children in this learning.


Monday 20th April 2020

Good morning, I hope you have all managed to have some sort of enjoyable Easter break.

This half term our topic in school would have been ‘The Great Outdoors’ so we are going to be following some aspects of what we would have been learning.

 

PE 

9am- if you are feeling up to it try Joe Wicks to give you a great start to the day!

 

Literacy

We would have been looking at ‘stories with familiar settings’ this half term in school.

Begin by watching Marshmallow on  https://vimeo.com/36998452

Pause the clip at the part where the swamp monster stands behind the little boy, encourage your child to predict what will happen next? Try to get them to describe what might happen to the little boy, their explanation can be as vivid as possible.

Continue to watch the clip until the swamp monster gets angry, once again pause the clip and ask your child questions about why they think the swamp monster became angry? How did you know he was angry? How do you think the little boy was feeling? What do you think the swamp monster is going to do next?

 

After your child has answered the questions, continue to watch the clip until the end.

 

As a follow up, you could encourage your child to write about what happened in the clip and what they think will happen to the swamp monster next.

Encourage them to try hard with their handwriting using their tall, lazy and sensible letters. Encourage them to remember to use:

·        Capital letters

·        Full stops

·        Wow words (adjectives)

·        Connectives (and, but, so, because)

·        Exclamation mark.

 

Phonics

We are learning alternative spellings for the /ai/ phoneme. Revisit Play the game Flashcards

Mrs Loughran has asked that I add this to my page for you to explore during the Easter period. It’s called: Journey into Easter with Children - a free resource.

 

Shahne Vickery of Imaginor has put together a series of reflections for each day of Holy Week which is suitable to be sent out to families. The material is free for anyone to download,  https://imaginor.co.uk/journey_to_easter and has an arty/crafty theme.  Journey Into Easter  is inspired by some stunning recently commissioned paintings from the Ethiopian artist Nebiyu Assefa

The material is aimed at 6 - 11 year olds but hopefully parents will be able to adapt it for younger children in the family and everyone will enjoy the craft!

We are learning to explore alternative pronunciation of the a grapheme

Practice reading tricky words: water, where, who, again, thought, through, work, mouse.

Teach alternative pronunciations for the a grapheme. Sort words into lists by the way the a grapheme is pronounced. Words: hat, splash, band, laptop, grand, bacon, apron, angel, apricot, bagel, fast, bath, grass, after, path, was, what, squad, want, wander. Acorn Adventures.

Hold up sentences on cards or whiteboards. Give children a moment to read the sentence in their heads then read the sentence out loud. Make a point of praising children for trying out one pronunciation of a word, deciding it isn't right and trying another pronunciation. Will you wear a hat when you eat a bacon sandwich in the bath? Can you watch a wasp sting a lady or will it be too fast? Would an angel want to visit a bank in the afternoon?

 

Maths – Place Value - This activity is fun and hands on and can be encouraged to do in the garden.

 

Use twigs or sticks to represent the tens and use buttons or similar objects to represent the ones.

Give your child a two-digit number e.g. 36 ask your child to represent this number using the twigs and buttons (so they would find 3 twigs to represent the 3 tens (30) and they would find 6 buttons to represent the 6 ones. Encourage them to count the twigs in tens e.g. 3 x 10 and then the ones until they get the answer. 30+6=36

Remind children that we can only ever have a maximum of nine ones, ask them what happens if we added another one to nine? They should be able to explain that it becomes a ten and moves across to the other side in the tens column.

Repeat with lots of two-digit numbers to reinforce the place value of a number.

Extension – Introduce the hundreds, tens and ones. You could use a large cardboard square to represent the hundred. Ask your child to show you the number using hundreds, tens and ones. E.g. 354

You would have three large squares, five twigs and four buttons.  Repeat with other 3 digit numbers.
