Week Beginning 22nd June

Good morning!  Here we are at the beginning of another week of learning from home.  Thank you for your email messages, they really do help us as we are missing you all so much.  We have had photographs and videos from some of you and they always make us smile. 

Please click the link below to enjoy a weekly Collective Worship with your family.

Collective Worship at Home

This week we are going to start a new topic in Come and See.  This is our final Come and See topic and it is all about Neighbours.  It is a topic that is provided by CAFOD and helps us to think of God's family from all around the world.  The document is one that is provided for every year group so you will have to scroll through to find our pages.  The topic lasts for three weeks so please take your time working through it.  If you wanted to share any work you do with CAFOD on their social media platforms, please use #CAFOD so that they can find your work easily.  

Maths

There are still lots of ideas for maths being shared on BBC Bitesize and White Rose Maths to help you to keep up to date with your learning.  

Here are the links to the White Rose worksheets...

You may have already completed some work that is similar to this, but in school we always revisit learning so that we can check that you have mastered the skill.

For your practical maths this week, please return to the learning that you have done linked to units of measure.  See if you can remember the units that we use when measuring capacity, length and mass (weight).  Have a good explore of different things in your house that you can measure.  Perhaps you can find an object and check all three measurements.  Make your own table to show your results and, if you have them, maybe use some measuring scales to check the mass of the objects.  Have fun.

English

Please continue to use the letters and sounds lessons provided by the DFE.  They are very useful to keep you going with your phonics learning.  The Phonics Play website is great too.

This week we are going to look at a slightly different version of Jack and the Beanstalk.  It is called Jack and the Baked Beanstalk.  Do you like baked beans?  We have split the story into sections and a new part will be uploaded each day for you to watch.  Make sure you listen out carefully at the end of the video to hear what job we have given you for that day.  

Here is the first part of the story.  Can you recognise which teacher has recorded this?  Make sure you check back tomorrow to hear the rest of the story.

Science

We have been learning about healthy and unhealthy food choices in Science. As a castaway on a desert island, fish would be a main source of food to keep you healthy. Fish are a very healthy food because they are low in fat and they are good for your brain, heart and eyes.

Watch this video to learn some interesting facts about fish. What do they look like? Can you name any of the body parts? Where do they live? What do they eat? Try to think about how fish are different to other animals.

Did you learn anything new about fish? Could you name any of the body parts?

Your task this week is to compare fish to other types of animals. What is the same and what is different? Think about how they look, where they live, what they eat and what they can do.

The children in school will choose an animal they would like to compare to a fish and then write what is the same and what is different about them. I have chosen to compare a fish to a bird.

Which animal have you chosen to compare to a fish? Did you know that humans are animals too? Maybe you could find some videos about different animals to watch to help you compare. Have fun finding out about the different animals.

Topic- Where does our food come from?

Last week we talked about which foods come from plants and animals. The children in school were good at identifying where foods came from and some were amazed that beef burgers come from cows.  

This week we are going to learn about how bread is made. Did you know it is made out of flour? Do you know how flour is made? Watch these videos about how wheat is grown and what happens to it after it has been harvested.

Do you know any other foods that contain flour? The past couple of months it has been a little difficult to find flour at the supermarket. Why do you think that has been? I think everyone has been busy baking delicious cakes and banana bread. Have you made any foods using flour during your time at home?

Here is a drawing I have made of how wheat is made. Can you see the different stages that were talked about in the video?

Activity: This week your task is to find out about the journey milk goes on before it reaches the shops. You then have to draw your own pictures of the stages that take place.

You can find this information out yourself or use this link to help you. Milk journey: From farm to shops. 

 

The Tesco Eat Happy Project have lots of videos about how different foods are produced. Click on this link to watch how some of your favourite foods, such as baked beans, weetabix and fish fingers, are made.

Music

This is the final week of our ‘Your Imagination topic. I hope that you have enjoyed the songs and have been able to play along with them; keeping the pulse and the beat of the rhythm. The songs have let us imagine lots of different things, from making up our own brand new words to imagining things that we are hoping and wishing for.

 

This week’s song is one that lots of us will already know very well. It is from the 1992 Disney film Aladdin and is a ballad between Aladdin and Jasmine. They sing about the new world that they are going to discover together while riding on Aladdin’s magic carpet. The song is called ‘A Whole New World’ and was written by Alan Menkin and Tim Rice.

Have a listen to the song and think about its lyrics. Close your eyes and imagine all of the places that are described on the adventure that Aladdin and Jasmine are going to go on.

 

Does the song tell a story?

What instruments can you hear?

How does the music make you feel?

Do you like the song and can you explain why?

Can you think of any adventures that you have been on? Maybe you have been on holiday and travelled to exciting places. Maybe you have been on a walk in a new park you haven’t visited before or exploring in the woods. You could even imagine yourself on your own magic carpet ride and think about the marvellous sights you might see! Can you make a story map of a journey that you have been on? What did you see? What sounds did you hear?

Have a listen to the story ‘we’re going on a bear hunt’ by Michael Rosen. The story is all about going on an adventure. What sounds can you hear? Can you follow the rhythm of the story by clapping your hands or tapping it out the beat on your chest?

Here are some examples of story maps of the journey that the children took in the story to help you to create your own.

Have a great week, everyone.  Please remember to keep in touch via email and stay safe.
