English

This week we will be following the BBC Bitesize daily lessons on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zbpr47h

 

Today's focus is using phonics knowledge when writing sentences with unfamiliar words.

There are 3 activities, you can choose to do as much or as little as you would like.

 

Start by playing the 'simple sounds' mini game on Small Town Superheroes. Use the yellow arrows to navigate to the 'Sally and Percy' section to find the 'Simple Sounds' game.

 

Activity 1: Hunting for sounds

Pick six sounds that were covered in the 'Simple Sounds' mini game above.

Then go on a hunt around your home or garden and try finding objects that contain the same sound. Make a list of the items you find for each sound.

 

Activity 2: Let's explore the UK.

Watch the short video on the website and then try these activities:

  • Write down the names of the countries that make up the UK.
  • Using your phonics knowledge, try writing down any words that were in the video that you hadn't heard before.
  • Using the list of new words you've created, quiz the people around you to see if they know the words.

 

Activity 3: Let's write some sentences

What can you remember about the UK?

Write two sentences for each country of the UK, explaining what you heard and saw in the video. If you can, try and use the new words you listed in the activity above.

Remember the countries were:

  • England
  • Scotland
  • Wales
  • Northern Ireland

An example sentence could look like this.

In Wales there is a really big mountain called Snowdon.

Wider curriculum (History)

This week we are going to be looking at something very special that is happening on Friday, the 75th anniversary of VE day (Victory in Europe).

 

This was a very important time in history at the end of World War 2 and this Friday marks 75 years since it happened. 

Today's learning task is for you to find out what VE day is and why it is celebrated.

 

Watch the video on www.mrtdoeshistory.com/ve-day-key-stage-1 and read through the information on the documents I have attached.

 

The tasks take you through some history enquiries using accounts from people who were alive at the time and helps you to understand why it is such an important time.
