Learning Activities

Morning Class 2,

I hope you had a great weekend, and didn’t get too wet.

Below are some learning activity ideas for today.


Learning Objective/Focus:Past and future tense
Main inputWhen we talk or write about what we are doing at this present moment in time, we call it the present tense. When we write or talk about something we did yesterday or last week we call it the past tense. When we talk or write about something, we are going to do next week, we call that the future tense. We have to change how we write the verb. There are some rules you need to remember: If there is a short vowel, followed by a consonant at the end of the verb, you usually have to double the consonant: Eg hop, hopped, hopping. If the word ends in an e you sometimes have to take off the e before you change the ending Eg Hope, hoping. Some verbs do not follow any rules and look completely different Eg go, went, going

Choose 3 verbs. Write a sentence using each one in the present, past and future tense.
SHOULDWrite a paragraph about what you did some time last week. Write a paragraph about what you are going to do sometime next week.
COULDFind as many irregular past participles as you can. Eg say, said See, saw
Extension Activity IdeasKeep a diary for a week


Learning Objective/Focus:Describing, classifying and sorting quadrilaterals
Main inputFollowing on from last week’s work on 2D shapes, today we are going to concentrate on quadrilaterals: squares, rectangles, parallelograms, rhombi, trapezia and kites.

Using a ruler, draw a repeating pattern using rectangles and squares: rectangle, rectangle, square, rectangle, rectangle, square. Colour it neatly. Now work out (without drawing it) what the 20th Shape in the pattern will be. Now create your own repeating pattern, trying to use some other quadrilaterals.
SHOULDUsing a ruler, create a table of properties for quadrilaterals: square, rectangle, parallelogram. rhombus, trapezium, to show how many equal sides they have. (see example below) Complete another similar table to show the number of parallel sides the quadrilaterals have.    
COULDComplete 2 more similar tables to show how many pairs of perpendicular sides each shape has and how many pairs of equal angles they have.
Extension Activity IdeasDraw a Venn diagram with one intersection. Label one circle “2 pairs of equal sides” and the other, “No perpendicular lines” Complete the Venn diagram.

Foundation Subjects

Learning Objective/Focus:Teeth
Main inputhttps://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics /z27kng8/articles/zsp76yc

Write down the names of the different types of teeth in your mouth and what they are used for. Make a poster to explain why it is important to clean your teeth.  
SHOULDDraw and label a top and bottom jaw and use a key to show where all the teeth are in your mouth (if you are able to download things, I have attached a template)
COULDFind out what causes tooth decay and how it can be prevented
Extension Activity IdeasHumans are omnivores. How do you think the teeth of herbivores and carnivores might differ to humans? Why?

I hope you have a great day.
