We’ve tried to include a little spelling activity for each day, just like we do at school. This week there is a choice of completing online activities at BBC bitesize (they are all on the same page you just need to scroll down) or pages from the Twinkl activity booklet as well as some of our usual. You choose!

DAY 1: Watch video How to use apostrophes in contractions - BBC Bitesize Write out your spellings. Think carefully about which letters have been removed and replaced by an apostrophe.

You choose:  Pg 2 booklet. (see below) If you can’t print it just write 4 pairs of words using the two words and then the contracted form. OR Complete online BBC bitesize activity 1 (under the video) Fill in the gaps.

DAY 2: Complete the contracted forms booklet pg 3. Again just write words out in your exercise book if you can’t print.  OR Complete the BBC bitesize activity Fill in the gaps 2.

DAY 3Write a sentence for each of your contracted words or Complete BBC bitesize Highlight the words (scroll down the page)

DAY 4- LOG & LEARN – practise your spellings again – write them out in your spelling book. Use a red if you can to mark the apostrophe just like we do at school.  Eg Cant

             DICTATION – get an adult to read out these sentences one at a time, use my turn your turn until you can say it back to them (just like we do at school) then write the sentence. Get the adult to check you have wrote it our correctly and spellings are correct. Remember to practise any you found tricky with a crayon if you can – just like at school.  I don’t like it when it is too wet to play outside. Are you sure you wouldn’t like another pack of sweets?   

Day 5 : Mixture of TEAM TEACH & FOUR IN A ROW: I’ve combined these 2 games into one so that you can play at home. Write your spellings onto slips of paper. Sort them into easy and hard, remembering to put the easy ones on the top. Turn a word over have a good look at it, use your fred fingers to sound it out. Hide it, then write the word. Next turn the word card back over and tick all the correct letters, circle any errors and correct them. Can you get 4 in a row? Give your self a star for each word you spell correctly.

Or Play the last quiz at BBC Bitesize.

Spelling Activities - Common Exception & 'Red' Tricky words

This weeks words are words that we use a lot in our writing but are tricky to learn as they do not use phoneme patterns that we normally use. Some are also homophones. Practise your spellings with the activities below.

Tuesday

IDENTIFY THE TRICKY BITS!

Write out your spellings as a list in your exercise book or on paper. Think about which parts of the word will be tricky. Use your 'Fred Fingers' to sound them out then stop and think when you get to a tricky part that doesn't 'sound out' and use the graphemes/phonemes we know. EXAMPLE would 'w - u - d'    u sound is spelt with oul. Write your spellings again and underline the letters that make the tricky part. 

Wednesday

RAINBOW WRITE: Practise your spellings by writing them out using different colour pens or pencils. Write that tricky part with a bright colour so it really stands out. 

Thursday

UNDERSTAND MEANING Some of the words are homophones. To help understand what the words mean and how to use the correct version  write a sentence for each of your spellings. 

Friday

FINAL PRACTISE & TEST Play a game that is similar to 4 in a row & team teach. Write each of your spellings onto slips of paper and then sort them with the easiest on the top of the pile. Read it carefully, turn it over, write it in your exercise book and then check each letter to make sure you've got it correct. Repeat with all words. Can you get 4 in a row? Give yourself a star for each one you get correct.  TEST: Get someone in your house to test you on the spellings you have been practising this week. 

 

                                          MATHS

Daily Calculations: To be completed each day during your maths learning time.

 

Our maths this week is all about multiplication and making groups. 

Please watch each days video in turn, then complete the corresponding worksheet. Don't worry if you can't print the sheets off, talking through each sheet with a grown up is just as good. If you do manage to print them off, keep them somewhere safe and bring them into school once we are all back together again.

Are you a maths master? Can you complete the challenge question set for each day? Don’t forget to make a note of all your answers.

SCIENCE

 

Following on from our work last term, recognising and sorting foods into the 5 food groups, we would like you to work through the power point identifying healthy and unhealthy foods. Then, using the sheets provided create yourself a nice healthy lunchbox. If you don't have a printer just draw the outline of a lunchbox on a piece of paper and fill it with healthy foods. Aim to make your lunch as balanced as possible referencing the quantities of the eatwell plate.

Don't forget to label your drawings.

 

Just for fun!! Can you make a colourful, culinary creation using fruit and vegetables? Take a look at some of the amazing ideas below!
