I will be delivering a live phonics lesson at 10.30 for all children to attend. Please have a pen and paper ready for the spelling part of the session.
Please also complete daily spellings, handwriting and any extra phonics games from the phonics game tab on cherry remote learning page.
This week's spellings:
Please practice spellings at home for a short time each day.
We have have found a new part of the Island called 'The Lost Lagoon'. We decide to go for a dive through the lagoon to see if we can find another clue for finding the treasure chest. Today, I would like you to write a setting description for the underwater scenery, describing everything you can see, hear and feel. This may be the fish, coral, rocks, seaweed, wildlife etc. Begin by mindmapping the adjectives you could pair with the nouns (e.g. fragile coral, striped fish, camouflaged fish, elegant jellyfish, huge rocks, slippery seaweed). By mindmapping ideas, the children will be able to build the noun phrases into a sentence with more independence.
I would like the children to use words with the suffix -ing to extend their vocabulary:
Make sure you have capital letters and full stops in the right places. You should try to use 'adjectives' to add description to your writing and the connective 'and' to extend your sentences.
In Maths, the children are writing number sentences for word problems:
for example, Miss Cunningham had 12 cupcakes, Mrs Walker ate 5 of the cupcakes, how many cupcakes were left? 12-5=7
It would be useful to give the children as much visual support as possible, for example using real cupcakes and physically removing these to illustrate the 'subtraction' that is ocurring.
I would like the children to design their own breathing apparatus in order to allow us to breath underwater in the lost lagoon. Have a think about what it must include - could it have a oxygen tank? what is this used for? Could it have a snorkel? Is it waterproof and lightweight?
