RE

The Lost Son – hidden meaning

 

Read the parable, ‘The Lost Son’ again. Remind your child that a parable is a special story told by Jesus to help Christians learn or understand ideas. Discuss the ‘hidden meaning’ of the parable – for Christians, this parable teaches that God is loving and forgiving, like a parent.

 

Activity

Choose from the following activities (or do both is you like):

 

  • Hidden meaning box

Use the template (or a box) to create a hidden meaning box. Show the story of the Lost Son on the outside of the box, but put the hidden meaning inside the box ready to be found by anyone who opens it. This can be done using both artwork and text.

 

  • Parent outline

Help your child make the connection that Christians believe that God is loving and forgiving, like a parent. Draw an outline of a parent. On the inside draw or write what parents do or say to show that they love their children. On the outside of the outline, draw or write what children do to show that they love their parents. Draw out the meaning that love goes both ways.

Topic

Ocean Layers

 

Did you know that the world’s oceans are made up of different layers? Find out about these different layers, or zones, and the plants and animals that live in them by reading the information on the PowerPoint presentation (the presentation starts with general information about oceans and seas which will be a good opportunity to review your child’s learning). The poster has more information about animals from the different zones. Pay special attention to the features of the animals found at different depths eg eye size, colour etc

 

If your child is particularly interested, you may want to go through some of the more detailed PowerPoint with them, with particular focus on the animals and how they are suited to their environment.

 

Task:

Cut out the layers of the ocean and place them in the correct order. Can you find another animal for one of the layers?

 

Optional Challenge:

Think about how the animals are adapted to suit their habitat in the different layers. Can you create a new creature for one of the layers? Draw and label your picture, saying why it is suited to its environment.

‘The Jumblies’: using imagination to help understand the poem

 

Reread the first verse of ‘The Jumblies’ a few times, asking children to create actions to help them to remember it. They should by now be able to join in with some parts, especially the refrain.

 

Work in role, with you being one of the Jumblies and your child being one of the Jumblies’ friends.

 

What would they say to each other about the adventure? The Jumblies’ friend should try to persuade the Jumblies not to go to sea in a sieve! Then swap roles.

 

Task:

Ask the children to write down what the Jumblies’ friends might say to persuade them not to go to sea in a sieve. Remind children about using capital letters and correct punctuation.

Year 2: Encourage your child to re-read their writing and look for ways to improve it. eg use adjectives and adverbs to add description, conjunctions (and, if, when, because, but).

Year 1 – Adding -ed to verbs

 

Can you remember what a verb is? (action or doing word). When the action takes place in the past, we add the suffix -ed.  Jump becomes jumped, march becomes marched, play becomes played. Can you think of some verbs and change them to the past tense?

 

-ed endings are  pronounced in three different ways: https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/5/simple-verb-suffixes

 

Task:

Practice reading -ed words by sorting them into real and fake words.

 

 

 

 

Year 2 – Verb suffixes -ed and -ing

 

This week, we are learning the spelling rules for adding -ed and -ing. To prepare us for the rest of the week, we are going to revisit reading words ending in -ed and -ing, and looking at the different ways the -ed ending is pronounced. Go to: https://www.spellingplay.co.uk/y2_member/violets_vowel_suffixes.html and click on the ‘Revisit’ button.

Read it again and ask the children to spot what the friends of the Jumblies said to them. Why did they say that?

 

Read it one more time and ask the children to listen out for details about what the Jumblies looked like.

 

Task:

Ask the children to draw a picture of the Jumblies on their sea adventure and label it using phrases from the poem (sheet attached).

 

Challenge:  include the friends in the background with a speech bubble.

 

Start to learn the repeated refrain together:

“Far and few, far and few,

Are the lands where the Jumblies live:

Their heads are green,

and their hands are blue;

And they went to sea in a sieve.”

RE

What do Christians believe God is like?

The Parable of the Lost Son

 

This week’s parable is about the Lost Son.  This story is also called the Prodigal Son.  Prodigal means to spend a lot of money on things you don't need and being very wasteful with what you have.  That is exactly what this son does!

 

Read the Parable of the Lost Son (attached). To support understanding, use the painting from last week’s session – encourage your child to find parts of the painting which illustrate different parts of the parable.

 

Task: write (or ask your child to write) any questions they have about the parable in speech bubbles. These can be prompted in the form of “I wonder…” They can illustrate them if they want to.

 

Support your child to understand the meaning of the parable and the connection to what Christians believe about God.

 

 

Support to explain the parable’s meaning:

 

The Lost Son is a parable, which is a special kind of story told by Jesus to help people learn or understand ideas. Parables might be harder to understand than other stories because they have hidden meanings.

 

In this parable the father in the story is just like God.  This is how God would be if we ran away from him and we started doing things we shouldn't.  He doesn't give up on us when we do things that are wrong, and he will always forgive us if we've truly changed and repent for what we've done.

 

The older brother in this story just shows how most of us would act if this happened to us.  We might all be upset if our younger brother or sister ran away for a long time and behaved badly, then came home and your parents threw a big party for him.

 

The father who had been wronged, was forgiving.  But the eldest son, who had not been wronged, was unforgiving. Christians see the story as telling them that God is particularly concerned with the people furthest from him, and rejoices when they turn back. They believe that God generously forgives people when they turn back to him.

Identifying rhyming patterns

 

You need to listen really carefully today to spot the rhyming patterns!

 

Read ‘Calico Pie’ by Edward Lear aloud.

Ask your child what they notice about this poem that makes it sound good when it is read aloud (rhyming patterns). Read the poem again, encouraging them to join in with the repeated “but he never came back to me; He never came back, He never came back, He never came back to me”.

 

Can you recall the animals that were running away in the poem? Who do you think the speaker in the poem might be – is it a person, or something else that all of animals would run away from, like a cat?

 

Task:

Match up the rhyming phrases from the poem (attached). If your child finds it hard to hear rhyme, read the poem again, emphasising the rhyming words; support your child to match the rhymes.

 

Challenge – Try creating more rhyming patterns of your own.

Look at the two animals (resource attached). What differences can you spot between the two animals?

 

Look at the picture of the Sea Bass. What type of animal is this – mammal, fish, bird or reptile? Do you know what the parts of the fish are called? Repeat this for the other animals then use the quiz to see what your child can remember about the functions of different animal parts.

 

Task:

Y1: Use the words on the word mat to help complete the labels for each animal.

 

Y2: Use the words on the word mat to help complete the labels for each animal. Now explain in your own words what some of the different parts of ocean animals are used for eg gills are used so fish can breathe under water.

 

Challenge:

Use the ‘Plenary’ page on the slides (page 30).

 

The slides have three questions for children to consider and discuss. These questions are designed to encourage children to think about how animals (including humans) have adapted to their environment, and why some animals have certain features but not others.

Go to Phonics Play and look through the rules for adding -s and -es (particular emphasis on -es :  https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/5/simple-plural-rules

 

Now play the ‘Adding -es to make plurals’ game. Show your child the singular word and ask them to follow the spelling rules to write the plural. If the word ends in a hissing, buzzing or shushing sound, we add -es. You can point out that this gives the word an extra syllable (beat), too. Fox changes to foxes, so it needs -es.

The Owl and the Pussycat - reading with expression

 

Re-read ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’ aloud to your child (or share the reading with your child).

 

Can your child re-tell the story of the poem? Are the characters happy in the poem? How do you know? How does your child think the poem should be read aloud – in an upbeat way, a sad way or an angry way? Ask child to practise the lines “They danced by the light of the moon, the moon, the moon, they danced by the light of the moon” using their voices in different ways for different moods.

 

Now support your child to perform the first verse of the poem (it will take time to move from reading it to performing it). Encourage your child to use their voice to make it interesting; they can make up actions to go with it too. Confident performers might want to work on more of the poem.

 

Recording the performance will allow your child to review their own performance, thinking of something they feel is effective and something they could improve. You could also post it to ClassDojo for us to see!

Ocean Animals

 

The world’s oceans are full of plants and animals. How many sea animals can you think of?

 

Scientists sort animals into groups, according to what characteristics they have. You might be able to think of an animal to go into each of these groups: fish, mammals, reptiles, invertebrates.

 

Activities (you don’t need to do them all, but try to challenge yourself!):

  • Take turns reading the riddles and identify the ocean animals. You can add challenge by using the Ocean Animal picture cards and describe the animal yourself. Try to use scientific language eg mammal, carnivore etc
  • Do some scientific sorting. Sort the animals into those that live in oceans and those that don’t.
  • Make the sorting more challenging by sorting the animals by the criteria shown. Can you think of your own way to sort the animals into two groups?

Year 2 – Adding -s and -es to verbs

 

Last week, we worked on adding -s and -es to nouns to make plurals. What is the plural of cat? Church? Baby? Which spelling rules can you remember?

 

This week, we are learning to add -s and -es to verbs. Can you remember what a verb is? It’s and ‘action’ or ‘doing’ word – how many verbs can you think of in 1 minute?

 

Go to Third Person Singular Pirates  https://www.spellingplay.co.uk/y2_member/third_person_singular_pirates.html

Going to Sea Poetry

 

Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to read and listen to sea poems by Edward Lear, a poet known for his nonsense rhymes and poems. You will have a chance to create and perform your own poems.

 

Read ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’ aloud (or share the reading with your child). Write a quick list of any words your child doesn’t know (eg runcible, quince etc) and help define them. Now ask your child to spot any phrases that are repeated in the poem (such as ‘you are, you are’). If you have a printed copy, your child could highlight these phrases.

 

Read the poem again, encouraging your child to join in with the repeated phrases; these repeated phrases ‘come alive’ when the poem is being read aloud.

 

Task: Create a picture glossary to define new words found in the poem (resource attached). Read the words, then children draw their own pictures in the boxes to represent the word.

 

Note:  Although Lear does not define what a ‘runcible spoon’ is in the poem, most people use it to refer to a cross between a fork and a spoon. A ‘Bong-tree’ is an invented word so the children can use their imaginations to decide what one looks like!

Things to look forward to

 

How are you feeling today? What did you do at the weekend that made you happy? Is there something you are looking forward to that you can’t do yet?

 

Today’s activity is to create your own well-being jar. Having things to look forward to can make you feel happier and improve your well-being. Each time you think of something you would like to do in the future, write it on a piece of paper and place it in your jar. You can take them out when you do them!

 

You will need:

 

• glass or plastic jar • scissors • paintbrush • white glue • sticky label or strip of paper • tissue paper or coloured paper • pencil • paper to record the things you are looking forward to

 

Instructions (or you can decorate with your own ideas):

1.  Cut shapes out of the colourful paper or tissue paper.

2. Use the paintbrush to put some glue onto the jar.

3.  Stick the paper shapes carefully onto the jar.

4.  Write a label for your jar. You could write ‘Things to Look Forward To’.

5.   You can use white glue to paint over the top of the shapes on your jar and the label. This will give it a nice, shiny effect.

6.  Once dry, your jar is ready to use. Write things that you are looking forward to on pieces of paper and place them into your decorated jar.

STEM Challenge – A life without plastic

 

On World Oceans Day, you may have learned about the problem of plastic pollution. Plastic rubbish is harmful to the seas and to the living things in it and many people agree that we should reduce the amount of plastic we use.

 

Think about what your life would be like without plastic.

  • What things in your house are made of plastic?
  • Are all plastics the same?
  • Do they all float? (you might need to carry out an investigation to answer this)
  • What could you do to reduce the amount of plastic you use?
  • Could you live your life without plastic? What would it be like? Does everyone in your family agree with you?

 

You can present your findings in any way you want. For example:

  • a story
  • a piece of artwork
  • a poster
  • a comic strip
  • a PowerPoint presentation
  • a video
  • any other way you can think of!

RE: What do Christians believe God is like?

 

Over the next few weeks, we will be learning that Christians believe in God, and that they find out about God in the Bible.  Christians believe God is loving, kind, fair and forgiving, and also Lord and King. We will be exploring stories which show these Christian beliefs.

 

Look really closely at the first piece of art (attached). What do you think is happening? What can you see in each part of the picture? Why do you think the artist has used the colours she has?

 

Now look at the second painting and, again, think about what might be happening and what the people might be thinking and feeling.

 

These two paintings are part of a ‘Tryptych’, a piece of work made up of three panels of paintings. It tells a story from the bible - I’m not telling you which one yet, but you might work it out!

 

Your task today is to think about what might happen next in the story, then paint or draw the third panel in the triptych. Like the artist, you could choose colours to show how the people are feeling.

 

 

 

Note to parents:

These paintings are from Dinah Roe Kendall’s Triptych of 'The Prodigal Son’s Return' (2005). You could show your child the images on screen to discuss. If you can print, you could provide your child with a small paper frame to help them look in detail at parts of the painting.

 

It is not important that the children identify the bible story from the painting. This task is intended to get them observing the images closely and discussing their ideas. They may talk about their ideas about God as they discuss the painting.

Year 1 – spelling /e/ as ‘ea’

 

Introduce the new spelling pattern for the /e/ sound. Your child might recognise the spelling as making the /ee/ sound. Explain that the spelling can be pronounced in different ways.

 

You can play a game of basketball using a box, bin or something similar.

 

First, write (or print) the words on pieces of paper. Ask your child to find the /e/ sound in each word, underlining the ‘ea’ digraph. Next, ask your child to read a word - if correct, they scrunch up the paper to make a ball and throw it in the ‘basket’. Remember to keep score!

 

 

Year 2 – singular to plural nouns

Plan a Sea Adventure

 

This week, you are going to write your own sea adventure story. Will your story be a tale of a brave and mermaid or a swashbuckling pirate adventure? Perhaps a mischievous fish will get into trouble with a toothy shark? Let your imagination go wild!

 

Today, take time to plan your story using a story map or mountain – use drawings and notes. Think about your main character(s) – what do they look and act like? What does your setting look like? What will happen in your story?

 

Add noun phrases and other descriptive language you want to use to your plan. You could even story-tell out loud to someone!

 

Note to parents:

I suggest that children plan their story today then write the introduction tomorrow. They can then re-read their writing to check it makes sense and make changes if needed. They could then continue writing on Thursday and Friday, repeating the proofreading and editing process; they could also illustrate each section of the story as they complete it. This approach will allow them time to produce some good quality writing. An alternative approach for children who want to write their story in one sitting is to produce a first draft, then rewrite (or type) a final draft.

Good description helps the reader imagine what it is like, how it feels and looks.

 

Word Challenge (optional): Use a thesaurus to find some useful words to help

with writing about the sea. Perhaps about movement e.g. flow (run, pour, flood,

gush, surge, drift) or the look of things - seaside (beach, shore, coast), or

colours blue (azure, cobalt, sapphire). Write some that you like.

 

Writing Task

 

Draw a picture of yourself swimming or paddling in the sea. Now write some

Creating Sea Collages

 

You will need: Paintings from yesterday; piece of paper from your collage, glue,

scissors.

 

Look at Turner’s seascapes again: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=turner+sea+paintings&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=mvKmVJzdK8iyUfi

LgaAL&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAQ&biw=1362&bih=617   Point out how, in these storm pictures, Turner shows the waves moving in a number of different directions at the same time, as the sea churns and rolls. Look at where he has painted them with white edges (‘white horses’) as though the wind is whipping at their tips. Point out that the boats are sometimes almost submerged by the raging waters, nearly lost within the waves.

 

Creating your Collage:

  • First, take out your stormy sea painting and brush away any heavy salt residue. Then create waves by tearing the sea paper into long, uneven horizontal strips. There is no need to worry if the strips are of different widths and sizes, or if some break before you get all the way across the paper. The important thing is to tear, not cut with scissors, as this creates a white lip, like the waves’ edges in the Turner paintings.

 

  • Next, lay down your sky painting assemble your wave pieces – a little like puzzle pieces – on a background sheet. This is collaging. Try out different arrangements until you feel you have the stormy effect you want, and then glue the strips down.

 

  • Finally, carefully cut out your sailing ship image and experiment with where to place it. Here we are using scissors - to get a good, crisp edge around our ship. Will you place it with the seas rising around and above it, or should it be riding high along the waves? Once you are happy with your arrangement, glue all your pieces in place and allow your collage to dry.

 

Now enjoy sharing your artwork with your family! Remember to send us pictures of your Turner-inspired masterpiece!

Painting Waves

Over the next two days, we are going to create and use painted paper to make

collages showing a ship caught in a storm at sea.

 

J. M. W. Turner was an artist who lived a long time ago, in the 19th century.

Look at the portrait of J. M. W. Turner in the attached information. What

clues in the painting tell us it was painted a long time ago? Show Turner’s

seascapes: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=turner+sea+paintings&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=mvKmVJzdK8iyUfiLga

AL&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAQ&biw=1362&bih=617 . Turner loved stormy seas. Once, he even tied himself to the mast of a sailing ship out at sea so that he could experience first-hand what a sea storm really felt like! Ask your child to point out images they like or that interest them.

 

Today, we will make our pictures using two things that we find in every ocean and sea – water and salt! Firstly, we will be painting a cloudy sky background using a watercolour wash technique. Then we will be painting the sea, mixing colours to get the colours and shades we want for our waves. Thirdly, we will create our sailing boat. Finally, tomorrow, we will combine all the elements in a collage.

Look at the picture of Jim standing on the pier (attached). Why do you think he was ‘filled with sudden sadness’? What do you think will happen next?

 

Y1

Draw a picture and write at least one sentence about what you think will happen next. Challenge: write about why you think Jam was filled with sadness.

 

Remember: say each sentence out loud before you write it

 

Y2

Write about Jim’s feelings – why do you think he was filled with sadness? Write what you think will happen next.

 

Remember: check your writing. Does your writing make sense? Can you make it even better? Think about improving it by checking punctuation or including description.

For today and tomorrow’s task, you will need some pirate books. If you don’t have any at home, you can listen to some online. I’ve attached some links below to get you started.

 

Spend today reading/ listening to pirate books – at least two, but as many as you like!

 

Which is your favourite story. Why? What did you like about it? Who was your favourite character? Why? Does the book remind you of a story you know? What do you think of the ending?

 

Encourage a discussion about characters, setting, plot and their own opinions about the stories.

 

 

Friday’s task is to write a book review, telling people about your favourite pirate story. It’s a good idea to write down some of your ideas to help you plan your writing. You don’t have to write in sentences – just a few notes are enough.

Treasure Map

 

Hide some treasure in your garden (hide it – but don’t start digging holes in your garden!).

 

Now draw a map of your garden, marking where the treasure is with a cross. Your map should also have North, South, East and West on it, so you will need a compass. If you don’t have one at home, your Mum or Dad might have one on their phone, or will already know what direction in North from your garden.

 

Write a set of instructions so that someone can look for your treasure, using compass directions and right/ left. For example:

  1. Take 6 steps north from the back door.
  2. Turn right then take 8 steps forward

 

Extra challenge: Use quarter, full and half turns in your instructions.

 

Did anyone find the treasure? Did they need to look at the map?

Toothy Challenge

Have you ever noticed that when we see pictures of pirates in books and films, they all seem to have bad teeth? Why do you think that is?

There are a few reasons…

 

  • Pirates did not brush their teeth

Toothbrushes were not invented until 1938; long after pirates sailed the seven seas. If pirates ever did clean their teeth it would have been using a “chew stick” which was not a very effective way to keep teeth clean and free of plaque. What do you use to brush your teeth?

 

  • Pirates did not eat a healthy diet

Pirates were only able to buy fresh food when they landed at ports. They didn’t have fridges or freezers so fresh food quickly went mouldy. This meant that pirates would go a long time without eating fresh food, and they often got ill with a disease called scurvy. one of the signs of scurvy was that teeth fell out – not just baby teeth!

 

  • There were no dentists

In pirate times, there were no dentists to help pirates when they had problems with their teeth, so they got worse! We are lucky to have dentists to take care of our teeth.

 

Your toothy challenge

Your task is to help the Night Pirates improve their teeth! Think about what you do to look after your own teeth. Now create a poster showing the Night Pirates what they should do to take care of their teeth. This could be instructions on ‘How to Brush your Teeth’, or include more details about a healthy diet and visits to the dentist. 

 

To plan your poster, you could use the attached sheet to write the facts you want to include in your poster. Remember to make your poster clear and eye-catching, so the pirates will read it!

My Invisible Backpack – a family activity

Type of activity: thinking and sharing

Who is it for? All the family

 

What do I need?

• A4 Piece of paper each

• Felt tips, crayons, pencil

• A bit of thinking time and creativity

• Optional real backpack and objects from round the house (or you can draw)

 

Introduction

Families come in all shapes and sizes – not surprising as each family is made up of individuals with lots of different connections! This activity is a chance for each family member to think about their own ‘identity’ and to share a little bit more about themselves with each other.

 

The idea is that we all carry an ‘invisible backpack’ with us in our lives and what’s inside is unique to us (though we may share some things in common). Over our lives, our relationships, experiences, family, memories, values, hobbies and work have all contributed to who we are today - our invisible backpack, but we don’t often take time to share this.

 

Which things have been most important in ‘making you, you’? Here’s how to...

 

1. Draw a big back pack on your piece of paper or find a real one. Now draw pictures (or put in objects) inside the backpack that represent important aspects of your life.

 

2. Here’re a few of mine – fir cone, map, compass – I grew up in the country and still love the outdoors; they also represent values important to me of freedom, exploration, independence and need to look after our natural world. Family photo – happy memories of my childhood and then my own children; represents love and caring, working out difficulties together, resilience, growth of confidence.

 

3. Now take it in turns share your backpack with the rest of the family, explaining what each object represents. Listen carefully to each person.

 

4. Some questions to think about:

 

• Were there any common ideas in your family?

 

• Was there anything surprising you never knew before?

 

• What did you like hearing about?

 

• Which is the most important item/value in your pack?

 

Looking back, looking forward:

 

• Do you think the contents of your invisible back pack were the same when you were a toddler?

 

• Do you think they might change in the future?

 

• The lockdown experience for Covid-19 may have asked us to ‘repack’ or add a few more items! Which of these skills and values do we want to keep near the top of the backpack from this experience?

Year 1 – Sort the /ai/ words

 

Practice reading words with different spellings of the /ai/ sound. Choose from:

  • ai, ay, a_e matching cards (either simply match or play a matching pairs game)
  • ai, ay, a_e roll and read (if you don't have a dice, you can make an alternative using an egg box. Write the numbers 1-6 in the six sections in the box. Put a little ball, pompom, pebble or similar in the box, hold it closed then shake it. Open the box to see what number has been landed on.

 

Year 2 – Alternative spelling of /j/

 

Today, we’re reminding ourselves of the -ge and -dge spellings – they both make the /j/ sound. Can you think of any words which end in -ge or

-dge?

 

First, complete the ‘Circle Time’ activity by sorting the words. Can you find the pattern? (-ge words tend to have a long vowel sound; -dge words tend to contain a short vowel sound)

 

Now practice spelling the words by completing the sentences.

The Night Pirates

 

What do you think about the Night Pirates’ ship? What do you like about it? Is there anything you don’t like, or something you think could be better?

Now write about the ship to tell us all about it. Here are some ideas to get you started on your writing:

 

  • What does it look like?
  • What is it made of?
  • What is special about it?
  • Why do you think they will like it?

Practice reading words with different spellings of the /ee/ sound. Complete the ee, ea and e_e word sort by writing the words in the correct column (or cut and stick the words). Confident children can complete the second part, writing sentences using /ee/ words.

 

Year 2 – Reading words ending in /l/ sound

 

Can you remember any ways to spell the /l/ sound at the end of words? (le, il, el, al)

 

First, practice reading words ending in /l/ by sorting the words into the different spellings (attached). Some of the words are challenging! Remember to sound out unfamiliar words - if they don't make sense, check if there are any letters which could be making a different sound (eg the letter 'g' making the 'j' sound) Which spelling is most common?

If you’re feeling confident reading the words, you can practice spelling some of them using the sheet attached.

 

Note to parents: These spelling patterns are tricky to learn. Build up to spelling by developing confidence in reading the words and being able to look at the word when writing it in a sentence. As confidence builds, they can learn how to spell the key words.

 

 

 

Reading and writing

The Night Pirates

 

What would you think if the Night Pirates invited you to join their crew? How would you feel? Would you join them? Why? Why not? Could you be as quiet as a mouse? Would you be a good pirate? Why?

 

Write a letter to the Night Pirates, telling them why you do – or don’t – want to join them on their adventures.

 

Remember:

  • Letters start Dear… (then start a new line)
  • You can write your address at the top
  • Say who the letter is from
  • say why you do/ don’t want to join the Night Pirates (‘because’ is a useful conjunction for this)

 

Extra challenge:

  • include a question you want to ask the Night Pirates

 

You can write into your book, or use the paper attached.

Year 1 – Split digraph practice

 

Play the Matching Pairs game to practice reading split digraph words. As a support before reading, you could help your child identify and highlight the split digraphs in the word – let them mark the split digraph on the word cards before reading the whole word.

 

Try using the cards for two split digraphs. You can build up as your child becomes more confident.

 

Year 2 – Spelling long vowel sounds

 

Today, we are reminding ourselves of different spellings for the long vowel sounds /ai/, /ee/, /igh/, /oa/ and /oo/.

 

How many ways can you think of to spell the /ai/ sound? Write them down (a list is provided below).

 

Repeat for the other long vowel sounds. Your child might remember one or two spellings, or many. If they have remembered one or two spellings, remind them of the next one on the list below. If they are finding it challenging, only do as much as they are comfortable with.

 

If your child is confident, they can complete the spelling practice sheet attached.

 

If extra practice is required, go to Phonics Play  Phase 5 and work through some of the exercises in ‘Investigating Alternative Spellings: https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/resources/phase/5 Choose one or two sounds to work on to build up confidence.

 

Alternatives for /ai/: ai, ay, ea, a_e, a, eigh, ey

Alternatives for /ee/: ee, ea, e_e, ei, ey, e, y

Alternatives for /igh/: igh, ie, i_e, i, y

Year 2 – Tense consistency

 

When we are writing, it is important to keep tense consistent (usually by staying in the same tense) to make our writing make sense.

 

If I wanted to write about going on a walk, I might start: Yesterday, I went for a long walk in the woods.

 

If I then wrote: I am enjoying the sunny weather in the woods.

 

Does it make sense? How can we fix it? We can change the verb in the second sentence to past tense:

 

Yesterday, I went for a long walk in the wood. I enjoyed the sunny weather in the woods.

from World War II. Talk about the questions on the slides.

 

Your child can then design a war medal for a member of the army, navy or air force returning home after World War II. They could use the paper worksheet or make their own medal using fabric, cardboard or anything else you have at home.

 

The final task is to write a letter to a serviceman or woman, thanking them for their bravery, using the writing paper included.

 

Can you use any of these words in your letter?

Plan your own VE Day Celebration

 

Plan your own celebration for VE Day. Perhaps you could have a special lunch or tea party and decorate your house or garden with bunting and flags. You could write menus of what you are going to eat. Perhaps you could send invitations to the family members you live with, asking them to come to the celebrations.

 

Use the bunting and flag templates to help decorate your home for VE Day. To make them, you will need: colouring pens or pencils; glue, sticky tape or staples; a stick or lolly stick; and string or wool. You could, of course, design your own!

 

Further Research

If your child is interested in finding out more about the Second World War, they could try these activities:

 

  • Research what life was like in 1945 in Britain. What did people wear? What did they eat? What music did they listen to?
  • Find out about the army, navy or air force during World War II. What were their uniforms like? What vehicles, planes or ships did they use? Your child could research using books or the internet and create paintings and drawings of people, vehicles, planes and ships from World War II.

What instructions can we give the boy to help the penguin find his way home? Here are a couple to get you started:

 

  • Ask your toy duck what to do.
  • Check in the Lost and Found Office

 

Your instructions can be based on what happened in the story or you can think of your own ideas. You can write your instructions in speech bubbles if you like.

Lost and Found

‘Lost and Found’ is all about a lost penguin. What is it like to be lost? And found?

 

What if one of your toys got lost? You would need to create a lost poster to help find it! How could you describe your toy to help people find it? Remember to include a picture!

 

Guidance

Choose one of your toys. How could you describe it? Try making a list of adjectives (words which describe nouns). For example:

large       fluffy     stripy     soft

 

Now make a noun phrase. For example: fluffy, white polar bear

Think about what details you could add. For example, where was your toy last seen?

 

LOST!

Have you seen a fluffy, white polar bear? It has a shiny, black nose and large, padded feet.

It was last seen at the foot of my bed, but has vanished!

If found, please contact Mrs Miller.

Lost and Found

This week, we will be learning with the story ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers. If you don’t have the book at home, you can listen to the story being read: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRAAQ8EWzig

 

Can you answer these questions? (Note: either ask the questions at the end, or stop at the point in the story the question is about).

 

  • Why do you think the penguin went to the boy’s house? How do you think he got there?
  • Why did the boy take the penguin to the Lost and Found office?
  • Why is it funny when it says ‘some birds are just like that’?
  • How did the boy find out that penguins live at the South Pole?
  • How do you think the penguin and the by felt when they were rowing during bad weather?

 

Look at the attached activity. Either use the sheet or draw your own pictures of the penguin. Can you write a sentence to say how the penguin was feeling at the beginning and end of the story? Remember to explain your idea.

Note for parents: In Year 2, children are taught about commas and their use in sentences. When commas are used to separate items in a list, a comma is placed between each item in the list, except for the final two items, which are instead separated by ‘and’ or ‘or’.

 

Examples:

I bought chicken, potatoes, peas and carrots to make dinner.

Would you like vanilla, chocolate, raspberry or strawberry ice cream?

 

Commas can also be used to separate adjectives:

The superhero wears strong, silver, metal boot.

Reducing Waste

 

Think about some of the things we throw away every day. Is it just rubbish? Or is it something you can use? Some artists have made amazing pieces of art using all sorts of stuff that would otherwise end up in the bin.

 

Have a look at the three pieces of art below. Look closely. What do you think they are made of? Which one is your favourite? Why? What would have happened to the rubbish if it hadn’t been re-used? What is landfill?

 

The artist Michelle Reader created ‘Litter Flowers’ from waste materials discarded in the Forest of Dean (http://www.michelle-reader.co.uk/gallery/plants-and-flowers/litter-flowers.html) and Tony Cragg uses discarded materials to create some of his sculptures (https://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/cragg-stack-t07428).

 

Learn more about WEEE man by watching the video: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KZJbIKKEqs)

 

Challenge: make some rubbish art!

Use your imagination and some rubbish (ask an adult to help you find some clean rubbish that is safe to use) to create a piece of art. You can be inspired by the artists you have looked at or create your own style!

 

Extra challenge: When you have collected your rubbish together, draw a picture of what you are going to create. In your plan, include materials and colours you are going to use, as well as how you are going to join parts together.

You could also test your child randomly through the day to see if it has ‘stuck’!

 

Words to use: wait, hail, pain, aim, sail, main, tail, rain, day, play, may, say, stray, clay, spray, tray, crayon

 

Year 2 – spelling common exception words

 

Practice spelling common exception words – the common, sometimes tricky, words which need to be learned. Play Little Bird Spelling: https://www.ictgames.com/littleBirdSpelling/. You click on the year group, then each bird box has a different set of words to practice. Try to focus on a small number of words – check your child can also spell them independently.

 

It’s a good idea to keep reviewing the Year 1 words, too. Try the Year 3 and 4 words if you want a challenge!

Seas around the UK

This should be enough for two afternoons – the children can follow their own interests when exploring the seas around the UK.

Get in the mood for exploring the seas around our country by imagining ourselves taking a journey around our country in a seaplane – a flying boat! It’s a boat that can also fly – or an aeroplane that can also sail on water!

 

Close your eyes and imagine boarding the seaplane while an adult reads the Seaplane Scene to you. What can you hear and see? How do you feel?

 

Seaplane Scene

 

Carefully, walk up the steps to the seaplane. Strap on your seatbelts. Listen carefully to the safety announcement. Are you feeling excited? A bit scared? Nervous? Very happy? Listen to the motor of the seaplane. Is it very loud? Thunderous? Grumbly? The seaplane is rocking on the waves. Can you feel the movement? The seaplane is moving quickly, getting ready to take off. It’s going faster and faster... up and up… until you are high above the water, looking through your window at the sea below. The waves seem small. The distant land and all the buildings are tiny. The clouds are close. Now we are flying through the white fog, up and away over the sea, flying swiftly. What do you feel? Our journey takes us over the sea until we decide to fly down, down, down… to land safely back on the sea.

 

Task

Use an atlas or Google Earth  (https://www.google.com/earth/)  to find out about the seas around the UK.  Navigate to the UK, hovering well above it so that you can see the British Isles entirely surrounded by sea. Can you see the UK here? Which part of our image shows water? Which is land? Stress that the UK is really a set of islands, surrounded by sea. Although all the seas join up into one great body of water, each sea has its own distinct name, a bit like places on land. Help your child to understand that individual bays or estuaries that they might know are little parts or corners of these larger seas.

 

Year 1 and 2: Label the map (attached below – either print it off or draw your own outline) with the following:

Irish Sea, English Channel, Celtic Sea, Bristol Channel, North Sea, Atlantic.

 

Song

Have fun learning this song:
