Monday 22nd February
Good morning Sycamore class.
Here are the activities I would like you to complete today.
I suggest trying to do the English and Maths in the morning. You can print the work if you want to or you can read from the screen and answer on paper. Please save anything you do to bring into school once we are back so we can have a look at it. You can also ask your grown-ups to e-mail photos of your work to me each day if you want.
I LOVE daffodils! When I see them in the supermarkets I know that Spring is coming and I love having some to brighten up my kitchen! Daffodils are a symbol of hope, new beginnings and spring and BBC Radio Derby are asking people to put a picture of daffodils in their windows as a sign of positivity during lockdown. Start by creating your daffodil picture by painting, colouring or collaging the daffodil print in the Resources section or draw your own to put in your window at home. If you’re feeling creative you could even make your own daffodil model using paper cake cases or egg boxes with lollipop sticks, straws or cardboard stems.
Then I’d like you to write a paragraph about what you are hoping for or looking forward to when lockdown ends.
You might have a few different ideas – I’d love to hear them. You could also add a message of positivity to anyone who might be finding lockdown hard: We can do it! Keep Smiling!
Send these to me so we can share them in school when we’re back.
Spend 10-15 Minutes on your Times Tables Rockstars account. (If you need a specific times table, let me know)
Open Up the Mental Maths activity and complete the challenges
This week we will be exploring 2D and 3D shapes. Click the link to watch a BBC bitesize video about sorting quadrilaterals. After that, open up the resources called ‘Sorting Quadrilaterals’ and complete the activity. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zcdq8hv
It's Monday so let's practise our handwriting and our spellings at the same time.
4) Topic – Art
In Art this afternoon I would like you to look at still life. When we’re back in the classroom, we will be starting an art project all about Van Gough’s Sunflowers so this will be a good start to it. Start by gathering up some items to draw. Fruit, vegetables, flowers or plants are the best to choose but if you don’t have any of those in the house, you could collect items such as teddies and toys. Once you have got a collection of items, arrange them in a place where you can see them. (I chose a broccoli, a leek, a tin of soup and some grapes) Once you are ready with a pencil and some paper, sketch what you can see in front of you. Think about detail and about the shading lessons you had a few weeks ago. You should only use your pencil for this lesson, no colours. You can see an example of a still life pictures in the resource section, ( Still Life examples)
