Reminder about -The Great British Art Exhibition

The Great Big Art Exhibition was launched on last week by Gormley, who is the first artist to choose a theme for people at home to be inspired by as they create work to contribute to what organisers are calling the nation’s largest ever exhibition.

Gormley chose the theme of animals to start with. People are encouraged to make their artworks out of whatever they have to hand. The results – be they paintings, sculptures or something less traditional – are to be placed on a front porch, balcony or window.

Please visit this website to find out more:

Under the Love Umbrella by Davina Bell

Please listen to the story again.

This week I would like you to think about how love feels.  As very soon it is going to be St. Valentine’s Day, I would like you to draw a great big heart, or you can use the template on class story and write some words inside about how love feels.

Words you might like to use could be amazing, happy, wonderful, awesome.

Then all around the outside of the heart, I would like to write down some of the things people do and their actions to show love.

Some things you could write are, giving someone a hug, making someone a cup of tea or just being a good listener.

Please look at the example on the class story.

They can then draw a picture of the weather that day and/or write a word to accompany it. 

The focus for this activity is the discussion and language that goes with it. Here are some examples of the type of questions to discuss with your child during the week.  

Examples: 

What was the weather like on Tuesday? What day was it sunniest this week? 

What is the weather like today? What was it like yesterday? How many days this week has it rainedHow many sunny days have we had this week so far? Could we have rain for 8 days this week?

This is my favourite one, it lasts for ages and doesn’t tend to flake or go crumbly.

Home Learning for Friday 29.1.21 

Language: 

Handwriting: Finger gym time- see previous video- remember children can do the exercises to any music, they know the moves by now. 

Reading/Phonics: Revision of sounds taught so far, blending and spelling- see previous videos. 

Writing: Complete any outstanding work- Instructions, Santa letter, World Religion Day, shopping list. 

Maths: 

Counting sets of objects to 20. 

Collect up to 20 objects and practise counting them. Think about how you organise them as you count. Is it easier to keep them in a big pile? Would it be easier to line them up as you count them? Could you put them into the Numicon shapes? Does it help to touch each item?  

Remember to check your answers by counting again. 

You might want to practise your number formation by writing the number next to the items or put the correct number card next to them. 

No need for photos or videos- just let them practise counting different amounts and rectify any problems e.g children counting by eye and getting muddled, children not knowing where to start and stop if items in a big pile. 

Go for bigger numbers if confident but to 20 in the first instance. 

 

RSPB Birdwatch: 

Powerpoint and recording sheet on class story     

The powerpoint explains all about the RSPB Big Schools’ Birdwatch. We get involved most years at Sketty, so brothers and sisters might also be doing similar activities. We collect everyone’s results and send them in to the RSPB as well as using them in school to see what are the most common birds in our gardens and parks 

I saw a Green Woodpecker in school on Monday and was very excited- I’ll post a photo! 

If you have any questions about completing the bird watch please let us know. The powerpoint explains most things, I hope! We would like the completed sheets back (emailed or sent in if your child in childcare) by Friday February 12th please so we can input the data. 

 

We would also love it, and I think the birds would too, if you had a go at making a bird feeder, or feeders, for your garden. I have put some ideas on class story. Please send us photographs of you making your feeders and then maybe hanging them in your garden. 

Don’t worry if the birds don’t come straight away, sometimes it takes a while for the message to get out there that there is yummy food in your garden. 

Have fun and happy bird spotting- get those binoculars out.

Writing Focus:  Instructional Writing on ‘How to Brush your Teeth’

Pupils will a watch a video introducing instructional writing. The children will need to write instructions on ‘How to Brush your Teeth.’ I will model a step-by-step guide on how to write instructions but my instructions will be on ‘How to make a Glass of Squash.’ The guide will help the children write their own instructions on brushing teeth.  I will also introduce imperative verbs known as ‘Bossy Verbs’.

You will find a worksheet, to write out the instruction and also a word/picture bank.

Please allow the children to sound out words and/or initial sounds and please allow them to write these independently and only help them if they are struggling. Thank you.

Please keep their work safe as next week, when we will look at Time Connectives, the children will need to amend their instructions accordingly.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help.

Remember to keep reinforcing the basics too- the counting forwards and backwards, number formation, one more/one less, number bonds, days of the week, language of measure- heavier/ lighter, taller/shorter, bigger/smaller, ordering and recognising numbers to 20 etc.

No need to send in videos or photos just try to imbed these skills throughout the day, maybe even bring them in to daily activities rather than specific ‘home learning time’.

Here are the activities to do this week: 

  1. Colour a monster and say how you are feeling and why. 

There are templates you can use, or you can draw a monster of your own.  

  1. Can you fill the jars with the monster’s colourful feelings? 

See the templates, draw your own jars or use real ones and take a photograph. 

Here are some useful words you might want to use: 

Happy – positive, cheerful, smiley, jolly, delighted, excited. 

Fear – nervous, scared, anxious, unsure, apprehensive. 

Angry – cross, annoyed, furious, frustrated, bad tempered. 

Love – caring, friendly, supportive, affectionate, helpful, proud. 

Sad – unhappy, upset, gloomy, miserable, glum. 

Calm – peaceful, quiet, still, relaxed, content. 

 

We look forward to seeing all your colour monsters and jars.

Maths: 

Quick Maths warm up- numbers bonds/pairs to 5- see video. 

Maths Focus Activity: 

Today’s lesson introduces ordinal numbers. See Video  

You will need to collect 5 items from around the home, e.g 5 different toys, different food items, different coloured lego bricks etc. 

Place your items in a row.  

Now you will need to make some ordinal number cards. You can write them on paper, card, postits or print out the ones I have put on class story. 

Write the number not the word– so 1st rather than first. 

Place the correct ordinal number card next to each item and say what position they are in e.g the banana is 1st, the orange is 2nd etc. 

You can either take a photograph of the completed work or even better video your child completing the activity. You need to encourage them to use the language of ordinal numbers rather than one, two, three etc. 

If you email us a photograph, rather than a video, could add a message to say what your child was able to say e.g Teddy is first, robot is second etc and we can add a speech bubble to their photo in their books. 

If your child is confident with this then go up to 10th position, but only do this if they are ready and saying the first five ordinal numbers correctly.

Let’s Celebrate-Measure and Make: 

I know we can’t get together and have a real party at the moment but reading all your party shopping lists this week has really got us in the mood and made us feel quite hungry. 

We would love it if you and your grown up could make some party food for your family to enjoy. It could be cupcakes, biscuits, muffins, shortbread, rice crispy cakesgingerbread. It really is up to you and what ingredients you have. There are lots and lots of simple recipes on the internet if you haven’t got cookery books at home and they don’t need to be made today if a shopping trip is needed first. 

It would be great if you could use some Maths skills too- using the language of weight: heavier, lighter etc, when measuring out your ingredients. 

Please email us photos of you making your party food and the finished 

product- make us jealous!!
