Good Morning Hawthorn Class!


Well done to everyone who joined our 'Zoom Classroom' yesterday and a super job for completing the work. 

Here are the activities we would like you to complete today. You can choose what order you do the activities in, but we suggest trying to do the Comprehension, Writing 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. Don't forget to 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 a copy to us each day.

1) Comprehension

There's a sea beast on the loose! Read the diary entry to find out what the sea beast has been up to then answer the comprehension questions. There are three levels to choose from and the answers are there to check your work afterwards. 

2) Writing

Yesterday we wrote about what an Octoclaws looks like. Today we'd like you to write the next paragraph of your non-chronological report with this sub-heading: What do they eat?

Can you tell us all about what your octoclaws likes to eat, using as much detail as you can. Remember, you can make it up! Maybe they like to eat slimey, green fish or slippery jellyfish. It should be at least 3 sentences long, with capital letters and full stops. Here is an example from our seaweedles text:

What do seaweedles eat?

Most seaweedles eat lots of fish, crabs and eggs. They like green fish best because they are slimy, juicy and smelly. However, sometimes they also eat brown or grey fish. Few seaweedles eat pink fish. When it is Spring, they come onto land and steal eggs from nests. They use their long tongues to scoop out the eggs. When it is Summer, they always eat crabs. They stand in shallow water and wait quietly so they can catch them.

3) Maths

We can all count in 100s forwards and backwards but what about counting in 50s? Let's have a go. See if you can count in 50s in time with the PowerPoint. If it's too easy, ask an adult to adjust the time to make it quicker, if it's tricky to keep up, ask them to slow it down for you. Then have a go at completing the 'Counting in 50s and 100s' sheet. 

4) Spellings

Ask someone in your house to test you on last weeks spellings if you didn't do it yesterday. Let us know your score. Below you will find a PowerPoint which explains your new spelling rule and some activities for you to complete. 

5) Topic

This week, we are learning about rivers in the UK. See if you can tell someone else in your house what we have learnt so far - the 7 continents, the 5 oceans, the 4 countries in the UK and the seas that surround the UK. Follow the PowerPoint to find out about the rivers in the UK and which seas they flow into.  For the activity, there are 3 different levels so you can choose which one you want to do. Each one is followed by the answers so you can check your work when you've finished.

6) PE with Joe!
