Good Morning Class 3,
You will be pleased to know, it’s Friday!
We will be contacting all families over the course of today and next week. This is just to say hello and see if there is anything we can do to support you. I haven’t managed to put many examples of home learning on the class blog yet, so please do send in some examples to be added. They can be anything you are doing.
I look forward to speaking to you all soon.
Below are some learning activities for today.
Learning Objective/Focus: Use inverted commas
Main input: Watch a film or television programme.
Focus on two characters and listen carefully to their conversation.
Activities: MUST – Draw a comic strip retelling the conversation from the film.
SHOULD – Draw the characters and relay the conversation using speech bubbles.
COULD – Recount the conversation as direct speech ensuring you punctuate correctly. Recall previous teaching and learning about how to punctuate speech.
Extension Activity Ideas: Write a conversation between two characters who meet in a supermarket during lockdown.
Learning Objective/Focus: Solve problems involving converting units of time
Main input: Recap how many: Hours in the day, days in the week, weeks in the year, months in the year, seconds in a minute, minutes in an hour etc
Activities: MUST – Work out how many hours we are at school. Convert that number into how many minutes. Calculate how many weeks we are in school?
SHOULD – Calculate how many minutes you watch television in a day.
How long is a football match in seconds?
COULD – Write and/or ask time related questions.
Extension Activity Ideas: Make a timetable of your week and calculate how many minutes you do different activities.
Subject: Art and Design
Learning Objective/Focus: Focus view for landscapes
Main input: Make a pin hole camera – cut a square piece of card or paper and make a small hole in the centre. Use this hole to look at the landscape – the hole will focus your eye on different parts of the landscape, allowing you to see in detail.
Activities: MUST – Using your pin hole camera – draw a section of a panoramic view from your bedroom window or other part of your home.
Use pencil to sketch the focused view that you can see.
SHOULD – As above but add colour and shading.
COULD – Draw several different angles of the same view by looking from different positions in your home.
Extension Activity Ideas: Use your pin hole camera to draw a focused view of a location, when you are visiting an area of interest. Use a camera to take photographs of an area that interests you and use them to make a collage. It may be an adventure park with photos taken at different angles. Experiment with form and colour.
Have a great weekend and I very much look forward to seeing some of your learning.
