Thursday

Reading

Please make sure that you read every day to an adult and discuss the text.

You could read anything from your house - books, comics, cereal packets, tv subtitles.

 

Don't forget that you have access to Rising Stars reading planet where you will find the same books that we normally send home (this will be another way for us to know that you are engaging with school work).  If you have forgotten your log in details then please do get in touch.

 

Oxford Owls is another great website with a wide range of books at different levels https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/ 

You could also have a go at the reading challenges we posted here: https://www.galleyhill.herts.sch.uk/remote-learning-8/  - can you tick them all off by the time we return to school?

Phonics

It seems there may be a typo on the PDF document and the fourth column containing the word 'should' is actually supposed to be 'shoulder'.

 

Look through the phonics sheet.  

Activity 1 - sorting

Sort the words into the correct column according to the way the grapheme 'ou' is pronounced.  Say each word out loud to help you.

Activity 2 - reading

Read the sentence out loud - identify the 'ou' word and which column you would sort it into.  Remember to break longer words into smaller more manageable chunks to help you sound them out if they are a bit tricky.

Activity 3 - dictation writing

Ask someone in your house to say this sentence to you: You must not slurp your soup.  Write down the sentence using your phonics knowledge to help you.

You DO NOT need to print this sheet, you can complete your work on a whiteboard (just like we do in Phonics lessons) or into your book.

English

This week we are continuing with our unit on poetry.

Today you will be writing another poem – but this time it can be any type of poem you like and can be about anything you like!

Read through the slides and think carefully about your answers, you will find your activity in the slides.

 

You can listen to me reading the slides out loud if you find this easier than reading yourself.

Maths

Watch the lesson here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukA7LzClD1I  

Today we are using our expanded column methods to help us answer word problems.

Look through the PDF document.  Your activity is included within the slides; choose the level that is best for you.  Do not print the slides, just write the relevant number sentence and this will tell us which question you are answering.

PE

For PE today we would like you to choose 1 of the challenges to complete (see the PE challenge sheet below).  Please pick a different challenge to the one you chose last week.

We would love to see photos (or even videos) of you completing your challenge so please do send them over to us.

Have fun!

PSHE

This half term we will be working on the topic 'Relationships'.

Today we are thinking about what is fair / unfair, kind / unkind and right / wrong.

Look through the PDF where you will find all of your instructions and activity.

You might want to Zoom / facetime a friend from your class to complete this lesson together.
