Phonics – revision

Look at the words van, drive and give.

Ask the children to sound talk these words and draw sound buttons. Highlight the button that makes the /v/ phoneme in each word (drive contains a split digraph, give doesn't.) . Ensure that children know that when words end with the /v/ phoneme, they hardly ever end in the letter v, instead they end in ve. NB: Historically, any word ending in v had an e added, even if there wasn't a split digraph. This was because in handwriting v and u looked very similar and it was felt that adding the e to words ending in v helped to prevent confusion between the two. This pattern stuck and now hardly any words end with the letter v alone. Similarly, words don't tend to contain double v (vv) as this looked too much like the letter w. N.B. In some accents words such as with, mother etc may be pronounced with the /v/ phoneme (e.g. 'wiv', 'muvver'). You may need to point this out to children whilst also encouraging them to take pride in their accent. Listening to other regional accents can be a fun way to introduce this.

Practise Play Quick write: have, vixen, loaves, calves, living, vet, vole, knives, wives, waves, give, have, glove. Remind children that words ending with the /v/ phoneme, hardly ever end with v on its own, they end with ve.

Apply Ask children to help you write a sentence on the whiteboard. Put the viper in the van to go to the vet. The vixen lives in a hole near a vole. I have been living on loaves and liver.

Today I would like you to write a diary from the perspective of Bernard. Place lots of emphasis on feelings and how Bernard would describe how he was feeling throughout his ordeal of losing his bottom. Encourage the children to think about how Bernard feels when he finds it once again.

Please remember to:

·         Write in the first person ‘I’

·         Use capital letters

·         Use full stops or where appropriate an exclamation mark!

·         Use finger spaces

·         Use Time connectives (First, next, then, after that, Finally)

·         Use connectives to join your sentences (and, but, so because)

·         Use WOW words (adjectives) where possible.

Teach Look at the words wrong and sing. Ask the children to sound talk these words and draw sound buttons. Say the word drinking and ask the children to clap out the syllables. Write the two syllables separately on a whiteboard. Sound talk each syllable and draw sound buttons. Help the children to see that the letter n at the end of the first syllable makes the /ng/ sound. Repeat with stinking, blinking and thinker. Help the children recognise that the /ng/ sound is only spelt as n in two syllable words where it is followed by the letter k.

Practise - Play Quick write: bring, sinking, strong, winking, thing, conker, string, dunking, long. Highlight the sound button that makes the /ng/ phoneme in each word.

Apply Ask children to help you write a sentence on the whiteboard. The ice in my lemonade is sinking. Is that big, strong, stinking thing a skunk? She got a dunking in the swimming pool.

Science

Explore / Observe / First - hand experiences

§ Why don’t you all look the same? In the toy shop all the robots look and sound the same. How are we different from each other? There is an excellent clip from the film Toy Story where Buzz Lightyear realises he is just a robot and not a superhero when he sees boxes of robots all the same as him in a toy shop.

Whose face is that? Use children’s self-portrait drawings of their faces and see if other children can guess who the child is from the drawing. Do their drawings need to be more accurate or need more detail? Allow the children to use mirrors to look at their own faces and discuss the size and position of features on their face (this can be link to observational drawing skills in art and design). Allow the children to have a second attempt at drawing themselves using a mirror to help. What are their distinguishing features? Compare these with their first drawings for an assessment of their learning moving on. Over the next couple of weeks provide opportunities for the children to use view finders to look at each other’s faces, one feature at a time e.g. draw just the mouth of yourself then a friend, then eyes and eyebrows, then noses, then ears. After lots of practise and towards the end of the term the children can attempt a third self portrait of themselves using mirrors to help along with the drawing skills they have been developing. All three drawings can be used to assess the children’s observational drawing skills. Can the final pictures be identified? Who is it a picture of? Can other people guess?

§ How different are our eyes / hands / feet / hair, etc. from one another? Which information would the children like to explore further and tell the robot about? What colour eyes have we got? What colour hair do we have? What sizes are our feet? How large are our hands? Choose a couple of these to investigate and record information in group pictograms or graphs. What if we were all the same?

§ How do you move? The robot’s body is quite different from ours. How does a robot move? (straight arms and legs, can’t jump, one speed of movement, can spin its head all the way around, etc.) Through PE, explore all the different movements we can make. Isolate individual body parts and see which different movements they can do. Photograph different examples to put in the class book to share with the robot. Can the children annotate the photographs with information about their movements?

§ Your hands and feet are amazing. What can they do? The robot’s feet and hands are very different from ours and it is not very good at holding things. Explore how hands and feet are different. As a homework activity, children can find out about the feet of everyone in their house. Draw around the feet. Who has the largest feet? What shoes does the person like to wear? (A shoe shop would make an alternative role play area to the health centre. Children could explore different shoe fastenings, measure different shoes, count in pairs, tie shoe laces, etc.)

RE

Spirited Arts Competition

Please get involved in the above competition!  I am planning to send a school entry by the end of July so there's plenty of time to get creative!  Hundreds of schools from around the world will be taking part in this year's Spirited Arts competition! We welcome entries in (almost!) any artform, including:

·         Art (painting, drawing, sketching etc)

·         Poetry

·         Photography

·         Dance

·         Music

·         Drama

·         Sculpture

Winning entries will provide a good response to one of the 5 themes, and judges will be asking is it original? Is it well-crafted? And (most importantly!) is it excellent RE?

 

Please send entries to a.loughran@st-lawrence.lancs.sch.uk by July 10th.

 

The competition themes are as follows :

 

God’s good earth?

Are we spoiling God’s good earth? Should we be thankful for it? Can we save it in time from the threats of climate change? The beauty of the earth is celebrated in many religions, but the human spoiling of the earth is a danger and a coming crisis.

In this theme, learners are invited to explore ideas and beliefs about the natural world, human responsibility for the earth and ways of praying about climate justice. Great work will show some originality: the globe in God’s hands won’t win!

Inspiring!

What inspired you? A song? A quote? Another person’s life? A place?

Religion offers people inspiration to live. Sometimes an inspirational life, a person’s example, a text or a piece of music crystallizes our inspiration. In this theme, you are invited to identify what inspired you from a religion – it doesn’t have to be your own faith, as inspiration tends to spill over the edges of religions.

Explain through your art and text what connects your inspiration to spiritual or religious life.

Holy Words!

What words are holy for you? Select a saying or story you really love about peace, faith, unity, prayer or some other religious theme. Incorporate your holy words into your design or art and express the value and meaning of the words you have chosen in the images and art that you make.

This theme has a close connection to the study of holy books and teaching from 2 or more different scriptures can be used, so get reading from the Torah and the Gospel, the Qur’an and the Gita, the Dhammapada or the Guru Granth Sahib. And add some words from a non-religious source of wisdom too if you like.

Where is God?

Atheists, agnostics and believers in God might all respond to this by expressing their sense of the search for God or finding God. Where’s God? In your heart, in prayer, in the temple or the universe? Or is she hiding? Is he not there at all? Looking for God, searching for him or her, matters: but how are we doing in finding God? Would you search with google or a ‘God detector’? Is God on Instagram or WhatsApp? Can God be found by prayer or by looking among the world’s suffering people?

This popular Spirited Arts & Poetry theme produces great work where pupils use ideas from religions clearly: The Jewish Psalms 42 and 43 are where it starts.

Picturing Faith (BRAND NEW Photography section)

This is an innovation for our Spirited Arts competition. Pupils are invited to select up to 4 photographs from a visit to a place of worship (or another trip connected to RE) – preferably those taken by themselves, and give a brief commentary on the pictures to say what was great and what they learned from their visits. Comments about the emotions and the purpose of the place, not just ‘labels and captions’ are best. Pupils may like to provide their commentary in the form of a poem.

We suggest they are sent in a PPT presentation (or similar). If you have another way of responding to the theme ‘Picturing Faith’ then that is fine, please do send it in!

The competition will be judged by RE Today Advisers and students, and will take place in August.  Winners will be announced in the new academic year.

There will be 5 prizes for each theme (25 in total) but the organisers may award more if they have very strong entries for some themes. Entries are split into Key Stages for judging, and we hope to have at least one winner per key stage where possible.

Prizes are typically:

·         Individual pupil winners - £20 Amazon voucher

·         Paired winners - £10 Amazon voucher each

·         Group/Class/Year/School winners – Prizes decided on a case by case basis, but are often a £50-£100 voucher or cheque for the school to choose appropriate prizes.

All schools whose pupil(s) produce winning work will also receive a voucher to spend on NATRE membership or RE Today resources/training.

Science

§ What can we do that a robot cannot? A robot that comes from a toy shop lives in a box. Could we live in a box? Why not? (The things humans need to survive is part of key learning for Year Two but the idea can begin to be introduced here through discussion. Children’s responses to this will provide an initial assessment of what they think a human is).

§ What if humans had two heads or ten legs? What if we had no ears, eyes, hands, no head, etc? Which features can we manage without and which are essential? (This needs to be approached sensitively and could provide an opportunity to invite a visitor to school to stimulate a discussion about how people cope with disabilities.) The names of different body parts can be provided on separate cards and the children have to sort them into which are the most important features (those that we would struggle to live without) and least important (those that we could manage without if we didn’t have them or, for example, we injured that body part).

You can choose which sound from the selection available you would like to play, once completed, repeat with other sounds.

 

Science

During this theme, a role play area could be set up as a health centre allowing children can take measurements of different body parts such as arm length, leg length, head circumference, wrist circumference, etc. (using standard or non-standard measurements as appropriate).  The children could then add these to their ‘All about me!’ card. Sizes for different teachers / parents and a younger child could be given so the children can compare and say if their measurement is longer/shorter, larger/smaller than others.

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.
