Wednesday

English

 

This week we will be following the BBC Bitesize daily lessons on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zrvfy9q

 

Today's focus is writing a fact file about minibeasts using conjunctions to make sentences more interesting.

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

 

Start by watching the video about minibeasts on today's Bitesize lesson.

 

Activity 1: Let's make a list

Write some short sentences saying which minibeasts you know or saw in the video. See if you can write 6 simple sentences like:

  • I saw a snail.
  • I saw a spider.

 

Once you've listed them, try using the word 'and' to join sentences together like

  • I saw a snail and a spider.

 

Activity 2: Making a fact file

  • Using a piece of paper or pages in your workbook, fold it into 4 quarters.
  • Choose 3 minibeasts from the video and give each one a name.
  • Then write a sentence about each one making sure you use joining words to link ideas together.

For example:

Sally the snail has a soft body and a hard shell because it protects her.

 

Activity 3: Let's make a game

Draw 6 big squares on a piece of paper and then cut each square out.

 

On one side write the name of a minibeast (you can draw a picture too if you like). Then on the other side write a sentence about that minibeast. Make sure you use conjunctions to include more detail. For example - I can move really quickly because I have eight legs.

 

Once you've made six, test the people at home with you to see how many they can guess.

 

 

Maths

 

Today's maths lesson focuses on using the four main operations with length. You can find the video for the lesson Summer Week 2 lesson 2 on www.whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/

 

Once you have watched the video, have a go at the questions on today's worksheet. Record the answers in your maths workbook.

Wider curriculum (Science)

Hopefully last week you enjoyed learning the names of different trees that we find in the UK. Today’s task is going to follow on and will continue learning about plants, mainly the different parts of a plant and what they are used for.

 

Here are some websites and videos to help you.

Primary biology - Parts of a plant

 

Research and learn the different parts of a plant and what their job is in keeping the plant/ flower alive.

 

I would like to draw your own plant, perhaps one that is in your garden or you have seen when you have been out of the house. Label each of the different parts and it’s function.
