Tuesday 2nd March 

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.


1) English


Today you’ll need to watch and listen to the next 3 chapters of George’s Marvellous Medicine:

Chapter 3 – George Begins to Make the Medicine read by Mrs Downings

Chapter 4 – Animal Pills read by Miss Kime

Chapter 5 – The Cook-up read by Miss Hartshorn


You can listen to them all in one go, or you can start your activity after either Chapter 3 or 4. In these chapters George goes round his house looking for ingredients to put in his medicine. He chooses Goldengloss Hair Shampoo from the bathroom, Lipstick from the bedroom, Waxwell floor polish from the laundry room, a tin of curry powder from the kitchen, animal pills from the shed, engine oil from the garage and lots more.


Your job is to write your own marvellous recipe using things you can find around your house. There is a sheet called 'George's Marvellous Recipe' for you to list your ingredients with 3 options – choose the one you think will suit you best. Remember, we are only pretending, we don’t want you to actually make your marvellous medicine!


2) Maths


1. Spend 10-15 minutes on your Times Table Rock Star account. I’ve set your tables for you but let me know if you need to change it.


2. Open up the Power up activity and complete the challenges.


3. In maths today we will be learning how to write read and write the time in 12 and 24 hour clock and how to convert between the two. Open up the ’12 and 24 hour clock’ presentation from the resource section and read through the tutorial. After that, open up the ’12 and 24 hour time’ activity from the resource section and complete it.  


3) Spellings


Which method of practising your spellings works best for you? It is test day tomorrow so spend at least 15 minutes today practising your spellings in your own way. Will you write them in rainbow colours? Do you like drawing a picture to help you learn your spellings? Do you look for words within words? Perhaps you play a game using your spellings?


4) Topic – Science 


Today we will be moving on from last week’s lesson on the parts of the plant, to looking at the parts and functions of the flower, specifically the male and female parts.  Click the link below to follow the online lesson. You will need some paper, a pencil or pen, a ruler and some colouring pencils or felt tips.


 5) Yoga Quest

 (If you cannot fit this in before the zoom lesson, you can complete it after the lesson)


We have made it to the Winter Wonderland! What a journey so far! Our first visit in Winter Wonderland is to Pedro the Penguin. Pedro the Penguin | A Cosmic Kids Yoga Adventure! - YouTube
