Year Two week ending 24/3/17

This week we have been learning about:

Literacy: Speaking clearly, loudly, slowly and with expression for our class assembly
Maths: Dividing! We have looked at sharing sweets between different groups of children, how when you divide by 2 you are actually halving and have started to look at the commutativity between multiplication and division. 
Topic: writing emails in ICT

You can help at home by:

Literacy: Practice your words for our assembly. Stand at the top of the stairs or in another room and see if you can be heard. Speak slowly and clearly. Are you putting enough expression in?
Maths: There are new activities on Mymaths which should help you practice your division. 
Topic: Send me an email. Tell me about what you have done so far this weekend. Kerry.Schartz@trellech.schoolsedu.org.uk
Could all remaining costumes for the class assembly come in tomorrow as we will be doing our dress rehearsal on Monday. 
have a lovely weekend,
Mrs Schartz and Mrs Peacock.

Year 3 Home Learning w.e. 24.03.17

This week we have been

Literacy – writing a rough draft of our own folktale using the features we have learnt.

Numeracy – measuring liquids using ml.  Revisiting times tables and addition/subtraction of 2 digit numbers.

Science – learning about the sinking of the Titanic and seeing if we can design a boat so it wouldn’t sink.

Big Maths – counting in twos, fives and tens to 100 and back and from different starting points.

 

Activities to try at home

Numeracy – Mymaths activities have been set revisiting telling the time.  Also remember to keep learning your times tables, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and simple mental addition and subtraction so you can recall number facts quickly.

 

Presentation – your child has a date for their presentation which will take place the week before the Easter holiday, please help your child to prepare – it can be on any subject.

 

Assembly – please help your child learn their lines and also who they come in after.  We haven’t got long left to learn them.

 

Have a lovely weekend.

Year 1 Home Learning W/E 24.3.17

This week we have been learning about-

Literacy- Using vocabulary to describe vegetables. Collecting bossy verbs ready to make a salad.
Find it, prove it activities in Guided Reading.

Numeracy- Adding 2 numbers to 10. Counting in 5's up to 100.

Knowledge and understanding- Finding out about the Jewish celebration -Passover. 

How to help your child at home

Literacy- Can you write a set of instructions at home. Remember to list the ingredients or equipment you will need. Then use bullet points or numbers to describe  what you need to do. Use time connectives, (first, next, then, finally etc). Also bossy verbs. (Cut, slice. chop etc). Perhaps you could write a recipe or how to play a game?
When reading at home, perhaps you could ask your child a question about the text and then get them to prove their answer by showing you in the book. For eg. Which page tells you that the young boy is upset? etc.

Numeracy- Write the number 10 down and then throw a dice twice and add these 2 numbers to 10. Rpt with a few more. Don't forget to show your workings out.

Thank you. Enjoy the sunshine and thank you for the donations for Comic Relief.

Dosbarth Reception Mrs Phillips Home Learning W/E 24.3.17

 

Mathematical Development-

Ordering a set of numbers from smallest to largest

Adding using a number line and a 100 square

Ordinal numbers

Knowledge and Understanding-

We learnt how to ask 'What do you like?' (Beth wyt ti'n hoffi?) and respond with 'Dwi'n hoffi…' This week then we had a go at writing some sentences about what foods we like and reading them back.

We made a start on a Penguin dance this week, using movements such as waddling and huddling to show how a penguin behaves.

We were lucky enough to have a visit from Jack from Monmouth tennis club this week so worked with the children on some tennis skills. They worked with tennis balls, to throw, catch and aim. Then use the rackets to improve some accuracy and co-ordination.

Literacy-

We wrote a diary entry as if we were a penguin. We tried to use lots of describing words such as 'frosty ice' and 'chilly water' and 'cold winds.' The children did well with this and are using their sounds to try and spell more independently.

How to help at home-

Mathematical Development

Create your own cards with numbers on, for example 3, 6, and 2. Mix them up and lay them down. Ask your child to move them so they are in order from smallest to largest or largest to smallest. Some children can cope with up to 5 or 6 numbers and numbers above 10.

Make your own number line or perhaps even your own 100 square with each row having numbers to the next 10. Practise counting on, so for 6+5= start on the number 6 and then count on 5 more places. Some children were able to use the 100 square and go above 20. This just shows them another way of adding up two numbers.

Have a look at http://www.primarygames.co.uk/pg2/splat/splatsq100.html

We then recapped our ordinal numbers, e.g 1st, 2nd, 3rd. They are all able to so this practically and are beginning to write the corresponding number and letters, e.g nd for 2 and th for 4 or5. Try out some practical races at home using cars/figures etc. Make a label for them to show what positon they came in a race or line them up and pretend they are in a queue.

This week we have been

Carrying out interview role plays with a Titanic survivor
Solving problems using strategies we already know
Making observations when coke and Coke Zero are boiled
Started to go through our KS2 assembly

You can help at home by

Revise and go over the methods you know in Maths and times tables. The more confident you are with these the more likely you'll understand the concepts.

Learn your assembly lines and songs if you have access to the internet. We will be running through it next week also.

Year Two week ending 17/3/17

This week we have been learning:

Literacy: Proofreading and up levelling our work. 
Maths: Adding multiples of 5, positions and movement - full, half and quarter turns, right and left, clockwise and anticlockwise.
Topic: We have started rehearsing our assembly. 

You can help at home by:

Literacy: Write a short description of your garden. Then reread it and proofread it for spelling mistakes, missing words, full stops and capital letters. If you have time, use VCOP to up level your work. e.g. use more interesting words, add an opener, join your sentences together with a connective.
Maths: Continue to practise your times tables. I have also added new mymaths activities. 
Topic: Continue to learn your words. Think about the expression you need to use and how to project your voice to the back of the hall. If we can we would like to do their assembly without the use of microphones. 

Have a lovely weekend, 
Mrs Peacock and Mrs Schartz

Mathematical Development-

Re capping names of 3D shapes

Counting in 2s to 10

Teen numbers- 10-20

Knowledge and Understanding-

We have been learning the names of welsh foods this week- I won't list them all here in Welsh, but if you show them these foods, they should be able to tell you their name! apple, orange, strawberry, grapes, bread, cake, chocolate, banana, milk, potato, ice cream, carrots and pizza.

We learnt how to ask 'What do you like?' (Beth wyt ti'n hoffi?) and respond with 'Dwi'n hoffi…'

We practised our ball skills in P.E this week, trying to keep the ball close to our feet and dribbling with the ball.

We made some bird feeders this week, using various materials such as egg boxes, tubes, sticks, peanut butter etc. The children loved doing this and we look forward to seeing the birds eating from them next week.

How to help at home-

Mathematical Development

Practise counting in 2s to 10. Some children can probably go to 20. We used 'skip counting' to start, for example, whispering 1, shout 2, whisper 3, shout 4 etc. Then moved on to counting just using the multiples of 2. Try it going up the stairs. Use objects in 2s like socks or shoes and ask them to count how many.

We have been looking at reading and writing numbers from 10 to 20 this week. The children are becoming a bit more confident with this. Again, do a little practise at home, such as get them to write numbers you say or read numbers you write for them. Or number sequences with missing numbers.. 10, 11, 12, _, 14

Knowledge and Understanding-

When you are shopping at the weekend or in the kitchen at home, ask them to tell you some of the food names. Perhaps they could create a tally of the most popular in your house.

Have a lovely weekend.

Mrs Phillips

 


Year 3 Home learning w.e. 17.03.17

This week we have been

Year 1 Home Learning W/E 17.3.17

This week we have been learning about-

Literacy- Writing a story based on The ugly Duckling.

Numeracy- Counting in tens from different starting points. o' clock and half past times. Giving change from 10p and 20p.

Humanities- St. Patrick's Day. Finding the different cities in Brazil on a map.

Creative- Collage in the style of Henri Rousseau (simply amazing). Modelling with clay (surprise!).
Designing a trap to catch a Leprechaun.

How to help your child at home

Literacy- Can you find out a few facts about the reason we celebrate Mothering Sunday?

Numeracy- If you buy an apple for 11p, how much change from 20p. So 20p-11p= 9p  You can work this out by counting on from 11p.
Repeat with different amounts. Perhaps incidentally you could help your child over the weekend to identify o'clock and half past times. 

Thank you. Enjoy the weekend.
