Friday 3rd April

Good morning from Miss Chapman! Here are today's Daily Five:

1. The Daily Five - Maths

Please complete lesson 1 of week 2 capacity. On this website you will find a video tutorial, a worksheet and the answers. Let the children watch the video, then they can either complete the worksheet independently if you are able to print it off, or in discussion with an adult talking through the answers when viewing on the screen.


2. The Daily Five - Literacy

Today, and every Friday I would like the children to write a recount of their week and the things they have done. The children have written many recounts before. They are encouraged to include time words (e.g. first, then, next) and write in the past tense (I went), please see an example recount under the resources section. 


When they have finished they can draw a picture showing what they have done. 


3. The Daily Five - Outside Time/Be active

Find out which materials float and which sink.


In the first half of the term we learnt about different materials and how the material differs from the object e.g. the object is a bottle and its material is plastic. Outside fill a large tub of water – provide a selection of materials. Discover which materials float and which sink. Write a list in your work book of what objects you tested, it’s material and whether it floats or sinks.


4. The Daily Five - Project

In science this half term we have been studying two science units, seasonal changes and plants (in forest school). Over the course of this week I would like the children to think about how trees change over the seasons and create some art work each day to show a tree in the summer, autumn, winter and spring. You can find examples of what I expect below under 'resources'. 


5. The Daily Five - Phonics 

Consolidate all sounds learnt this week: 


Parents to test children on these words in exercise books: 

saw draw, boy, toy, girl, birthday, argue, glue.  


See which words are right or wrong. If any words are spelt wrong re-teach that sound. If all right, play buried treasure on phonics play - all sounds.
