Tuesday 21st April

Good morning all! Before you go onto your daily 5, here are some of your fantastic outside creations from yesterday!

A little one from me too, I have been learning to crochet, it is similar to knitting! My first strip worked as a good scarf for my dog! Enjoy your Daily Five!

1. The Daily Five - Maths

Please go through this link and onto WEEK 1 - Lesson 4 "Count in tenths".

Watch the video and answer the questions on the worksheet that you need to download next to the video. Remember you don't have to print it off, you could just write the answers on a piece of paper and mark it yourself afterwards using the answer sheet that is also available to download next to the video. 

I would like everyone to do to up to question 6 if you can. If you are in pyramids group or are feeling a challenge, have a go at question 7 and 8. It is okay if you need some help!


2. The Daily Five - Literacy

We are moving onto day 2 now. You can go onto yesterdays link and download day 2 if you like to see what they have also written on there and you will also need this to read Chapter 16 in a minute, however I am going to change it slightly to make it easier so please follow the instructions I have written below.

If you have read all of Fantastic Mr Fox before you will know what happens, however some of you may not have. Below is a summary of what happens in the story without giving the ending away.

I would then like you to read chapter 16. In Chapter 16, underline or write down any past tense verbs.

A verb is a doing word (e.g. walk, carry, look), a past tense verb is a doing word that has already happened. They usually have "ed" on the end (e.g. walked, carried, looked). 

By putting "have" or "has" before these verbs, makes them into the perfect present tense. If they DON'T have "has" or "have" before the verbs, then they are in the simple past tense.
For example:

She walked to the garden. (simple past tense)

She has walked to the garden. (perfect present tense)


I would then like you to complete this activity. Sort whether each sentence is in the simple past or perfect present. If you see the word HAS OR HAVE before a doing word, it will be in the PERFECT PRESENT. (you don't have to cut them out)

Oak Group Phonics: 

Once you have finished writing each word 3 times from Monday, using your words in sentences. (remember: punctuation, similes and adverbs).


3. The Daily Five - Outside Time

Complete a daily exercise video of your choice! Then, go outside and make one of these nature hearts. Take a picture of it and send it to someone that you are missing during this time to make them happy!


4. The Daily Five - Project

Continuing with World War 2, we will spend the next couple of days looking at the 'War Effort'. 


Some information:


Home front and war effort were the activities people did in their home countries that supported the war.

War effort activities included:

Rationing - people could only buy a certain amount of items such as butter, sweets, sugar, tea, petrol, soap and clothes.

Growing your own food - People dug their own vegetable plots to grow their own food so rationed food could go further. They also reared their own animals.

Evacuation - Many people were evacuated from the city to the countryside where it was believed to be safer. Many evacuees were children, but some also included teachers, carers and disabled people.

Salvaging Waste - Basically recycling, people collected, saved and reused materials.

Make do and Mend - this term meant that people repaired old and damaged clothes.

Women at Work - Women worked in factories, the armed forces, as land girls, engineering, ship building, driving ambulances and as air raid wardens whilst the men were away at war.

Civil Defence - These people helped keep others safe by building air raid shelters, sending gas masks and putting out minor fires.


YOUR TASK - make a propoganda (information) poster like the ones below promoting one of the war efforts above. Look at how they use bold pictures and words, powerful words and and catchy sentences.


5. The Daily Five - Reading

If you are struggling for books to read at home, there are many online ones that you can access.


The ones below are free David Walliams audio books.


Big Cat Collins ebooks - these are similar to your home readers so these ones are definitely recommended to read -


Steps to follow are below:


The books then come up in bands but we have put the matching phases, everyone should have their phase on their card with all their log ins on.


You can also continue to follow the Oxford Owl books that were introduced first.


Make sure to log down everything you have read onto your reading log, or make a new one if you have run out of space! Happy reading :)
