Remote Learning W/C 25th January

Hi Chestnut Class!
 
Welcome to week four of remote learning.
 
Find below your work for this week.
 
Don't forget - Tuesdays are different in school so make sure you look at the heading 'Tuesday' :) 
 
Check for Friday's afternoon work too... it's golden time! :) Hopefully Friday afternoons will be a time where we can all have a bit of fun. Lots of opportunities for great photographs to show your friends.
 
In addition to the maths, English and afternoon session, please keep practising your times tables.
 
Practise your times tables daily (Choose your times table sheet from the main remote learning page) Try to give yourself a 5 minutes time cap like we have in class to see how many you can do. Afterwards, get an adult to mark it for you OR use a calculator. Once you have got all of them correct 3 times you are ready to move onto the next challenge. Please email me if you cannot remember which sheet you need or if you are ready to move on.
 
It would be good to do this on paper 3 times a week. The other two days, you could use a computer or tablet to practise your times tables using the games below.
 
 
 
If you would like to send in any work you have done or pictures of you doing some of the activities, please do! It would be lovely for everyone to see what we are all up to.

Maths
 
We have moved on from statistics and this week we are focusing on looking at 3D shapes and their properties.
Chestnut Class - the sessions on 3D shapes are rather challenging this week.
 
What I suggest is that you work through lessons 1 and 2 at your own pace completing the tasks as you go. The progression I will be following in class is below:
  • Lesson 1 - Looking at and naming a variety of 3D shapes. 
    Shape hunt around school or home. 
    3D matching game
    Guess the shape

  • Lesson 2 - Looking at the properties of shapes in terms of:
    Edges
    Vertices
    Faces
    Apex (as a challenge)
    Making 3D shapes out of spaghetti and blu-tac or play-doh (The play-doh will present the vertices and the spaghetti represents the edges)

  • Lesson 3 (See Lesson 2 video and sheets) - Recapping the above but more formal written session
    Properties of shapes worksheet
    3D Shape game
    At home you could write riddles and solve them, guessing the name of the shapes through their properties

  • Lesson 4 -  Look at lesson 3's video and resources to apply your knowledge to questions.
    If you are ready to move on, look at lesson 4 and the additional investigation.
 
Should your child understand the properties of 3D shapes really well, please feel free to move onto lessons 3-4 where the problem solving element is introduced and worked on.

Further Investigation
English
 
We are continuing with our work on the BFG this week.
 
Find below your lessons and links to your worksheets if you wish to use them.
Today's session focuses on using the words:
  • eerie
  • sleepless
  • silvery
We will practise using these in a sentence. 
For this session you will need the last two worksheets with you as you will be using your ideas from these to write the opening of the story. 
 
This task will continue into next week (one more writing session).
 
Please remember to use your writing targets (attached again below).
 
The video talks about starting your sentences in different ways using fronted adverbials, so below you can find some posters with fronted adverbials that you can use.
 
I look forward to reading your opening paragraphs next week!
Grammar 
 
This weeks we are looking at different word classes such as:
 
  • Verbs
  • Prepositions 
  • Conjunctions
  • Adverbs
  • Adjectives
We have already looked at conjunctions, adverbs and adjectives (in the power of three) in class so far.

This may be useful for the challenge conjunctions sheet :)

Tuesday
 
Tuesdays are different in school to any other day and they can still be different at home too.
 
Today's Line Up:
 
Handwriting/Spelling practise for 20 minutes (see main remote learning page for booklets you can follow)
 
R.E.
 
French
 
Music
 
PSHE
 
P.E.
R.E.
 
Your lesson has been sent to you for today, the worksheet you need is below.
 
There are two activities here. You do NOT need to do both. Start on the first one, if you have time, or you wish to do so, complete the second one.

P.E. - Rugby Skills
 
This video progresses from last weeks skills using the ball.
 
Again, you do not need to use a rugby ball to complete the task, any ball will work just fine.
 
It would be an idea to complete each drill for 30 seconds and see how many you can do - can you beat your target if you complete the task?

Golden Time
 
This week Chestnut Class have decided to make super soft play-doh. We are keeping ours in individual pots at school so we can use it in golden time in the future.
 
Once you have made your play-doh, we would love to see some photographs of models you have made with it.
 
Recipe:
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup water
  • Half cup salt
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
You could add a dash of food colouring too - WARNING - this could get messy!
