Wednesday 1st April

Distance Learning

Task 1

Today, children all around the country will be taking part in

 

 
   

 

The 2020

Big British Balance

Experiment!

 

You can join in too! But you will need an adult to help you. At 11 o’clock you will need to go outside, close to a window. Balance on one leg, with both your arms outstretched.  Close your eyes and count to 10. Ask an adult to photograph what happens next, and email your photos to me before 12pm to pass on to the National Science Museum.

Task 2

As your new schools break up for Easter, try these fun craft ideas.

 

Fold-up Paper chicks

Easter Egg Mindfulness Colouring

 

           
   
     
     
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have a great Easter – and see you all in Virtual School after the holidays!

Morning Chimps!

 

Today, you can choose to do some RE, writing, maths or Art!

 

Task 1

Watch the clip of the Easter story that Miss Allen has found (She is brilliant at this!).  Then, use the storyboard template (or your Learning Journal), and retell the story using pictures! Then, write some sentences as well to add more detail. 

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wnbo2AmS3OI

 

Task 2

Can you go on a material hunt around your house? I have attached a sheet to help you. Create a tally chart of the things you find made from that material! As a challenge for any 'Mathmagicians', can you also display your data on a pictogram?!

 

Task 3

Have a look out of your window. What can you see? Sketch a picture and show us!

 

We have also attached an arithmetic test for you to try. The answers are there as well so that you can check it yourself! Let us know your score!

Keep up the great work, and remember to send us in anything you do! We LOVE looking at your work!

Hi Chimps! I hope you had a good weekend – despite being stuck at home!

 

Here are some ideas for you to try out at home today:

 

Task 1

Pretend you are a journalist – Part 2! Use the answers to your interview questions to help write a biography about someone in your house for the first edition of the Jungle Telegraph!  I have found a template for you to ask some extra questions if you want to (And a checklist of biography features for your teacher!).

 

Task 2

Measuring length.  Find some objects around the house to measure to the nearest cm.  You can use a ruler if you have one at home – or ask your parents if you can borrow a tape measure!  Record the length and height of each object in your Learning Journal.

 

Task 3

Finally, in science we have been learning about animals and how they grow. But what about plants? Use the template to write some instructions for successfully growing seeds. Draw a diagram of the life cycle of a plant. You could even try growing a plant of your own!

 

As always, keep practising your times tables and spellings!

Most importantly, remember to read something you enjoy every day - I have attached this week's edition of First News, the children's newspaper for you to have a look at!

 

Take care, and don’t forget to send your articles for the Jungle Telegraph

 

Keep washing your hands!

Chimps Working From Home, Week One! 'Homested' Overall Grade: Outstanding!

Friday 27th March

Distance Learning

 

Hi Chimps!

 

This is your last piece of learning for this week – so let’s make it the best so far! We are SO proud of all the work we have seen so far!

 

Thank you parents for all your hard work and support during this time.

 

Task 1

Pretend you are a journalist! Interview an adult or teenager in your house for a magazine article you are going to write about them. Use the attachment to ask them some questions and fill in the answers they give you.

 

Task 2

Addition and subtraction questions. Solve the list of questions Miss Allen has set for you. She has taken some photos of how we work them out in Y2 and how they work them out in Y3. Can you see the difference? (Remember, we have been practising this on Fridays with ‘Miss Scane’s Secret Methods’!) Have a go at the Y3 way! If you find it too tricky, stick to the way you prefer!

 

Task 3

Finally, Miss Cox was doing some writing earlier today, but she got in a muddle with her spelling! Can you read through her writing, and check it for her? You could rewrite the sentences for her with the correct spellings!

 

As always, keep practicing your times tables and spellings!

Most importantly, remember to read something you enjoy every day!

 

Take care, and have a great weekend! Keep us up to date with what you get up to!

 

Keep washing your hands!

Hope you are all OK. Here are the links you might want to use today - and the next instalment of Danny, The Champion of the World should be on the Video button on the HomePage!  You could send me a clip of you reading a book at home, and I will try and put it up for the rest of the class to see (Tell your parents it will have to be short, because I can only upload very small files!)

 

Have a great day, and keep up the great work!

Task 1

Earlier this year, we were learning all about shape! We learnt all about 3D shapes e.g. cube, cuboid, sphere, prism and square based pyramids. Can you go round your house and see how many different 3D shapes you can find? Make a list or take some photos!

 

Task 2

Miss Allen found this map of the World – but all the labels are missing! Can you label the 7 continents and the 5 oceans?

 

(Miss Cockle told me these clips might help, if you get stuck!  Parental warning: you might not be able to get the tunes out of your head!)

Task 3

Pick 6 of your spelling words. Play the roll a word dice game (It is attached above!) Miss Allen says it’s great fun!

 

Usually on a Thursday afternoon you would be doing PE with Miss Cox. Instead, why don’t you do your own form of exercise? This could be with Joe Wicks, or you could take advantage of the sunny weather and do some exercise in your garden! Take a photo or video so we can see what you get up to!

 

As always keep reading and practice your times tables!  ( I am trying to figure out what I have done wrong on RockStars!  In the meantime, drive your parents, brothers and sisters mad with The Singing Walrus! https://youtu.be/o0v5o6YbYro)  And maybe it is time to start keeping a diary about what you do every day – just like Samuel Pepys!

Think about what you might see, hear, feel, taste or smell at the circus.

 

 

 

 

Task 2

On another attachment, there is a blank template of a plant. Can you find out about the different parts of a plant, and label it?

 

Task 3

Work out how much change you would get from 50p if you paid the amounts below.

Amount

Change from 50p

As a challenge, see if you can work out the change from £1! – is there an easy way to do it?!

 

 

Extra

In school today, we created some rainbow mosaic pictures. Can you make your own rainbow? Be as creative as you can! Miss Allen has found a template to help you. Put your rainbow up somewhere in your house, maybe on a window to make someone smile when they see it.

 

I look forward to spotting them on my way home!

Morning Chimps!

 

Hope you are all well.  You can listen to the next part of Danny, The Champion of the World using the 'Video' button on the school website's Homepage.

Inspired by Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky, today we spent the morning developing our appreciation of colour and creating beautiful art.

We have begun learning our new model text: a recipe for a magic potion. To help us remember it, we came up with actions to match each sentence.

Today, we were fortunate enough to welcome poet Neal Zetter to our school as part of National Poetry Day 2019. We took part in a poetry slam competition, performing our poem to the whole school. Chimps Class won the competition, earning a poetry book that we will enjoy together. Well done, Chimps!
