English

Yesterday we wrote sentences about our favourite story character, from our focus text, 'George Saves the World By Lunchtime' by Jo Readman.

Today we would like you to write full sentences, including capital letters, finger spaces and full stops, to retell a part of our story, ‘George Saves the World by Lunchtime’.

 We have previously created our own story map for our text and today we would like you to choose a section of the story to write about.

 

You can draw pictures to show your chosen part of the story and then write sentences to match your pictures.

You can use the outline below to help you, or record your pictures and sentences on your own piece of paper:

RE

Our focus Values for this half term are ‘Curious and Active’.

This means that we are growing to be Curious about everything; and Active in our engagement with the world, changing what we can for the better.

 

As we continue through the month of January, the first month of a new year, we would like you to reflect upon our focus Values today and think about how you could be a follower of Jesus through your words and actions.

During this half term, we are going to take on the role of superheroes and complete work in our school grounds and local area.

 In preparation for this special challenge, we would like you to begin to plan and design your own superhero cape!

We will then make these in a few weeks time!

Maths

 We have been exploring 2D and 3D shapes during our Maths lessons so far this half term.

The following Shape challenges will help you to use and reflect upon what you have used in this unit of work...

 

Make A Shape Picture

Use 2D shapes to create your own shape picture.

You could include triangles, squares, rectangles and circles in your picture.   You could also included pentagons or hexagons!

You could use these shapes to help you to draw a house, a train, a rocket, a flower...on a piece of paper.

We would love to see your pictures when you return to school!

 

Make A Shape Pattern

We have explored creating repeating patterns during this week.

Can you draw your own repeating pattern, using the shapes above?

 

You can add colours to your pattern and use two shapes.

You could then try to create a pattern using three shapes, to make it a bit more tricky!

 

Go On A Shape Hunt

You can go on a Shape Hunt at home! 

Look for any examples of 2D or 3D shapes that you can find - draw your findings and label the shapes that you see.

 

 

English

We have been exploring the book, 'George Saves the World by Lunchtime' by Jo Readman, during our English lessons this half term.

.

 

Today we would like you to choose your favourite character from the story.  Remember, we have met George, his sister Flora, Grandpa and Mum.

 

You can remind yourself of these characters and what they look like, by looking at their pictures here:

Story Characters

 

Choose your favourite character from the story and draw a picture of them.

Write sentences about your chosen character and explain why they are your favourite. 

 

Remember to start each new sentence with a capital letter and also use a capital letter for the name of your chosen character.

Remember to include finger spaces in your writing and include a full stop at the end of your sentence.

If you could use the word 'because' in your sentence, that would be fantastic!

 

For example:

 

My favourite character is Grandpa because he has lots of good ideas.

My favourite character is Grandpa because he helps George.

 

You could then choose a different character and write sentences about your next choice!

 

We would love to see your writing when we are back at school together!

 

 

RE

We have been completing our final pieces of work in our Christmas RE Unit. 

We have listened to and explored the story of the Annunciation; which tells the story of Angel Gabriel visiting Mary to bring her the news that she will have a baby.

We also celebrated the Feast of the Epiphany last week, when we remembered the journey and visit of the Wise Men to baby Jesus.

 

Today we would like you to retell the Christmas Story.

You can use the pictures and word bank below to support you. 

There is also a story board that you can use to help you, or you can record your sentences on your own piece of paper.

As an additional task, imagine that you were in the stable with Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus.

How would you feel?  What do you think you might see or say?

 

You can use the following writing frame to support you, or record your responses on your own piece of paper.

This week we will be beginning our new Science unit, 'Animals Including Humans'.

Today we would like you to record what you already know about Humans.

Think about...

 

Which parts of the body you know? – You could draw an outline picture of yourself and label this using key words.

 

Which parts of the body do we associate with our Senses?  Do you know what our five Senses are?

 

What you think that Humans need in order to keep healthy? For example, which types of food, drink, which activities could they do?

 

If you were to give a superhero advice about how to stay healthy in order to complete all of their special work, what would you say?

 

You can also record what you would like to find out during our unit and any questions you would like to ask.

 

We will revisit all of your recordings at the end of our unit and see what new information that you now know!

 

You can use the recording sheet below to help you, or record your responses and ideas on your own piece of paper:
