Thursday

Phonics - This week we will revise the /ey/ phoneme.

Remember: The letters 'ey' make the long e (ee) sound.  Below you will find a video that reminds you of some words that has the /ey/  phoneme.  Did you remember which suffix  we need add to words that end with the /ey/ phoneme to change them form a singular (one) noun to a plural (more than one)?

If you used the 's and es' suffix, well done! To change money did you remove the /ey/ phoneme, replaced it with an i then add the 'es' suffix? Great job!

Did you notice that some of the nouns, we couldn't add ant suffix? Its ok if you didn't.  Usually turkey, honey and money wouldn't need any suffix but sometimes they do.

I have attached this week's daily paper based phonics activities again.  Once you have watched the video, complete Day 3 activity.- Wordsearch.  Have fun finding words that have the /ey/ phoneme

Phonics - To revise the /ey/ sound.

English - Today we will plan a diary entry as Sunny when he decides to leave home.

Task:

  • Watch the video below. While you are watching the clip, think again about the setting. I also want you to look at how the meerkat wakes up. Stop the video at 1:20. 
  • When you have finished watching the video, please go through the explanation attached below.  You will also find out about what today's activity is. 

Guided Reading - Go through the explanations then answer the questions in your book.

Maths - To tell time 'past' the hour and 'to' the next hour.

Remember:   On a clock face you will see digit 1 - 12.  Each digit represents one group of 5 so you will need to count in your 5s.

When the long hand (minute hand) is point to a digits 1 to 6 we say 'past the hour'.  For example if the hour hand (the short hand) is pointing to 1 and the minute hand (long hand) is pointing to 2 we say ten past 1.

When the long hand (minute hand) is point to a digits  7 to 11 we say 'to the next hour'.  For example if the hour hand (the short hand) is pointing between 1 and 2 and the minute hand (long hand) is pointing to 8 we say 20 to 2.

Below you will find a video to help you.  

Watch this video before doing the paper based activity.

History - To find out more about Sir David Attenborough.  To write questions that I would ask him.

We are going to learn about another significant person today.  You might have heard his voice before or seen him on television.  

Task: 

    1.  Watch the two short videos (Called Video 1 and Video 2) below and see if you recognise him.

    2.  After watching the video, discuss this question with your adult/brother/sister:

      Why might he be significant? 

      If you said that he is significant because he is a naturalist as Charles Darwin and Alfred   Russel Wallace were then you are correct. He is also English like them, but the big difference is that he is living today and is not from the past.

    3.  Watch video 3 - As you watch the video, see if you can spot any other similarities or  differences in his life with that of Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace.

    4.  David Attenborough has been interviewed many times for television and radio shows, but what would you ask him if you had the chance? Write your questions down.  I have attached a template to help you but feel free to make your own or write them in your book.
