Tuesday 5th January
While learning from home, you should be aiming for at least 30 minutes reading per day. This can be any type of text – fiction book, non-fiction, comic, newspaper etc. Also, have a listen to Mrs A reading the first Chapter of our new class book - Stig of the Dump by Clive King, just follow the link below.
This term we are going to be looking at Prehistoric Britain. As part of this we are going to be studying the book – Stone Age Boy. Have a look at the front cover of the book Stone Age Boy.
What do you think the book will be about? What things can you see on the front cover? What sort of story will it be? Who might enjoy it? Now read the blurb –
Where any of your predictions correct? How do the reviews on the back persuade you to read the book? What do you know about the Stone Age? Make a bubble map to show what you know at the moment. A template has been attached or maybe you could make your own.
Over the next 2 weeks we will be looking poetry. Read this poem by Michael Rosen
or you can watch him perform it here
Draw imagines from the poem. Talk to a grown up about what you think of the poem. Do you like it? Why? What do you/don’t you like? Why do you think he repeats ‘rock’ so much? What can you remember about how poetry is different to prose (story writing)?
You can write your ideas down or talk to an adult about them.
Number fluency – Please practise your times tables on Times Tables Rockstar’s
Multiplication - Today, we want you to watch the following learning video which is all about equal groups.
When you have watched the video, please have a go at the worksheet attached to this blog post, we have attached two different levels. Pick the sheet that most challenges you. We have also added the answers so you can check and mark your own work. If you don’t have a printer don’t worry, you can just write down your answers and your workings.
