Colomendy News

Hello Room 3.

Sorry for the late post, but here is an update on our adventures in Colomendy.  The sad news is that the visit will have to be postponed again.😢

The good news is that we will definitely be going. 🥳  The information we have had is that Colomendy will be ready for us in the spring.  More information to follow as soon as we have it.

So don’t worry. Room 3 WILL be having adventures, just a little later than planned.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.😘

Friday 10th July

Well we have made it to Friday.  Hopefully the weather today will be a little better than it has been.  So let’s do this!

Morning Maths:

Today I’d like you to have a little look at coordinates.  It seem such a long time since we looked at this last and played battle ships.

Remember, when reading coordinates you need to read across first, then up.  Put your fingers on the lines, and where they meet, that is your coordinate.  Coordinates are always written in brackets with a comma between them. (3,4).

Have a little look at the sheet below.

Morning Maths 1

Maths:

Back by popular demand…Maths Mystery!

The Mystery of the Missing Moji.

Maths Mystery game 2

Remember the answers are at the back, so no peeking!

English:

It’s Free Write Friday.

Have a look at the pictures below or choose one of your own to write about.  You can choose to write anything you like. Diary, letter, story, information, poem, cartoon, go for it!

As it is Friday, it is spelling test day.  It is also your last spelling test of this year as next week there are not going to be any spellings.

As it is Arts Week, I thought you might like to learn how to draw a dog, called Teddy and yes, for those of you who are fans, he is a pug!

Have a lovely afternoon, Mrs Gwyther will post your art.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you all next week for the last week of term.

Love from Mrs Pope xx

Thursday 9th July

Good morning my lovelies, I hope you are well.

Lets warm up our brains first, let’s look at a little bit of shape sorting.  Sort the shapes, according to the criteria, into this Venn diagram.  Remember if the shape meets both criteria, it goes in the middle.

Our maths today is continuing with time.  Today we are looking at quarter past and to.

Lesson-4-Quarter-past-and-quarter-to

For those of you who are super confident, here is a bit more of a challenge.

Digital to analogue

English:

Today, I’d like to you to find out a little more about a famous artist called Georgia O’keeffe.

Georgia O’Keeffe PowerPoint

As you can see, she was quite an amazing woman.

Here is a reading comprehension about Georgia O’Keefe for you to have a little look at.

 

Comprehension 1

Comprehension 2

Comprehension 3

As always, comprehension 3 is the hardest.

Why don’t you ask if you can pick a flower from the garden and draw it up close, just like Georgia O’Keeffe?

If you have a little time, you could listen to this story while you work.

The Twits By Roald Dahl

Mrs Gwyther will be setting our afternoon of art!

Have a lovely day everyone, let me know how you get on.

Wednesday 8th July

Good morning everyone.

I hope the weather didn’t stop you from having fun yesterday.  I cannot believe it is Wednesday already.  This week seems to be flying past.

Morning Maths:

We haven’t looked at charts and graphs for a while, so remind your brains with a little bit of practise.

Morning Maths

Maths:  Maths today is all about reading time.  I know that many of you have been practising this skill and so are pretty confident.  If reading O’clock and half past is not for you, have a look at the sheets below.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

Lesson-3-O-clock-and-half-past

Reading around the clock face in 5 minutes

For our English/Art today I would like you to listen to one of my favourite books.  The Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson.  I love the pictures in this book, especially the page where the little girl is remembering things.  As it is Arts Week, I thought we’d have a go at making paper people.  I love doing this, You can make a chain of your friends or your family, whatever you feel like.  They don’t even need to be people, I’m sure you can make a chain of dinosaurs or birds. Go for it!

 

Here is a quick video for how to make paper dolls.

Take a few minutes to read your book and practise your spellings.

Mrs Gwyther will post this afternoons art work.

I hope you have a lovely day, let me know how your paper people turn out.

Love from Mrs Pope x

Tuesday 7th July

Good morning lovely people,

I hope you enjoyed your arty day yesterday.  Today, we are going to continue with the art theme.

Let’s begin with a little morning maths.  Get our brains warmed up and ready to go.  We have been working hard to read scales for capacity lately but I just want to make sure you understand litres and millilitres and how they can be used.

Morning Maths

Maths:

Today you are looking at measuring temperature.  You need the same scale reading skills as you do for mass and capacity.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

Lesson-2-Temperature

English:

As it is ‘Arts Week’,  I thought it would be really nice to find out a little more about a very famous Russian artist names Wassily Kandinsky. Have a little look at this video.

Use the information in the video to make a fact file about Kandinsky. Choose one of the fact file sheets below or make your own poster about him.

Factfile

Factfile 2

Practise your spellings and read a little of your reading book.

If you have time, you could use some bright colours and have a go at listening to your favourite piece of music and drawing with the colours you see, just like Kandinsky.

If you are full of energy after all of your hard work,  have a little go at this…

Mrs Gwyther will be posting our afternoon work.  Have a wonderful day everybody.  Let me know how you are getting on or if there is anything you need.

Monday 6th July

Good morning everybody,  I hope you all had a lovely week getting to know Mrs Hilditch and Mrs Davies a little better.  I bet you are all really looking forward to September and meeting them properly.  I know they are both looking forward to meeting you all and seeing what a fab bunch you are.

This week is our Arts Week and so your afternoon activities are going to be organised by Mrs Gwyther.

This morning, we are going to begin with our morning maths as usual.

Morning Maths

We are continuing with our White Rose maths.  Today we are looking at litres.  Here is the year 2 video…

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

…and worksheets.

Lesson-1-Litres

As it is Arts Week,  I thought it might be quite nice to go and visit an art gallery.. Here is a virtual tour of the National Gallery in London.  Have a little look at some of the amazing pieces of art on show.

https://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/visiting/virtual-tours

For your English today I’d like you to find out about the painter Vincent Van Gogh.   He lived and painted more than 100 years ago.  He is one of the most famous painters in the world and his art works are worth millions of pounds today.

 

I thought it would be nice to do a little art appreciation.  This is where you look at a work of art and think carefully about it.  What do you see?  How it makes you feel?

Have a go at the sheet below and let me know how you get on.  The first sheet tells you about the painting, the next sheets ask you to think about how it makes you feel.

Art Appreciation Sunflowers

 

This is a very famous song based on Vincent Van Gogh.  Have a little listen.  The video shows you just a few of his pieces of art work.

I hope you have a lovely morning, learning about Vincent Van Gogh.  I will post your spellings on a separate post.

Have a fantastic day everybody.  Let me know how you get on.

Friday 1st July

Well I cannot believe we have come to the end of Transition Week already!

We have had a lovely week getting to know you a little better and I hope you know us a little better too.

Morning Maths:

Today we would like you to order numbers from smallest to largest.  Have a go at this game and see how you get on.

You can change the size of the numbers you are sorting from 10 to 20 or to any number up to 200.

Have a go!

http://ictgames.com/rangeArranger/

Maths:

Have fun playing this 4 in a row game.  You will need at partner, 2 dice and 13 counters each.  They don’t need to be proper counters they could be 13 squares of coloured paper or just circle an answer in coloured pen when you get it.  Feel free to use anything else you may have.

The object of the game is to get 4 answers in a row.

4 in a row game

English:

Today is Free Write Friday.

Have a little look at the pictures below.  Choose one that you like.  You can write anything using this picture as a starting point for your work. You could write a story, poem, diary, some information, anything you fancy.

If you don’t find a picture here that inspires you, choose a picture from a book at home. Remember to send us a photo of your work, we’d really like to see what you write about.

If you have a spare few minutes and need a bit of a relax, have a listen to this.  Don’t fall asleep though, it’s definitely not bedtime.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b04xscq6/cbeebies-bedtime-stories-478-edith-bowman-on-my-way-to-the-bath

As it is Friday afternoon, we thought perhaps a little relaxation.  Why don’t you have a go at drawing with Rob Biddulph, a famous author and illustrator. Have plenty of fun and send us your pictures.

Make sure you get outside for a walk or bike ride.

Can you make the alphabet out of things you see on your walk?

It has been so lovely getting to know you Room 5.  I know that Mrs Pittaway and I are both really excited about seeing you all very soon.

Have a lovely weekend.

Love from Mrs Pittaway and Mrs Pope xx

Thursday 2nd July

Well good morning everyone,  thank you again for all of your hard work yesterday.  I have to say, you are doing an absolutely amazing job.

Morning Maths:

You know the routine by now.  Let’s warm up our fantastic brains and get them working.  Today, time!  Telling the time is a really important skill. Have a little go at this game.  Choose the skill level that is right for you.

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/116/telling_the_time#

Maths:

Today you are going to be counting coins. It might be a good idea to ask if you may borrow some  coins again, this will help you with recognition and counting.

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/

Here are today’s sheets.

Lesson-4-Counting-in-coins

English:

One of the things I love to do everyday is to read.  I read lots  of different books. Some to my children, some just to myself.  At the moment, I am reading Matilda by Roald Dahl to my girls at bed time.

What do you like to read?  What is your favourite book?  Have a look at your bookshelf at home.  Which books catch your eye and why?

As I have already said, one of the things we do a lot of in school is share books and different texts.  Today I’d like you to do a review of your favourite book.  Why do you like it? What is it about? Who else would you recommend it for?  How many stars would you give it?  Send us a picture of your book review and I will print it out to go into our Reading Area.  That way we will have some great ideas for new books to read ready for when we all return to school.

Book Review

Now have a little listen to this…

This afternoon I would like you to let your imagination run wild…Imagine you could go anywhere in the world, with anyone you choose.  Where would you go and why?

If I could go anywhere in the world, I would take my family to Norway to see the northern lights. I have always wanted to see them and, despite trying, have never actually seen them.  I would love to.

This afternoon I’d like you to draw, paint or write about a place you would love to visit and why.  What would you do there?

Let us know how you get on, we love seeing your emails and getting to know you a little better.

Have a lovely day everyone.
