Pine Work

 

Monday 30th March

Hello Pine Class!  I hope that you are all well. A big thank you for everything you and your parents have been doing. Hopefully you are ready for some more! Don’t forget to let us know what you’ve been up to - if you can email, that would be great: cworsley@acorns.lancs.sch.uk 

Mr Worsley, Nicola, Karen and Agata 

 

Morning Work

Make a full range of weather symbols that you can use through the week - sun, rain, cloud, snow, wind, cold, warm, etc. Now chat about what it’s like today, and stick a symbol up on a chart or your fridge. Some of you could even write, or copy-write a sentence - Today it is... and..  

 

English 

Watch the videos about the ‘ng’ sound:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8v7Yl4phJcg

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQshNmncnBs

Try to think of some words with the ‘ng’ sound in them - you could ask a parent to give you some choices. Write them on cards and have a go at segmenting and blending the sounds, e.g. king - k i ng. Then, look at the cards randomly and see if you can read them or find them if your parent says the word. Finally, try to say the words in sentences, and perhaps write the sentences down.

 

Maths

Make a number line from 0 – 20. There’s one here if you have a printer, but they can be easily made with a long piece of paper:

https://www.helpingwithmath.com/printables/others/lin0301number02.htm

Now ask your parent to write a list of addition sentences using two numbers each, and not totaling more than 20. Use the number line to count on to add. There’s an example here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp9n4kMTuQo

Perhaps you could set yourself a challenge to see how many you can do in ten minutes!

 

Computing

We have been working on ‘algorithms’ which are simple sets of instructions. Could you make a map on a piece of paper and guide a small toy figure around by giving a set of instructions? You could even write them down, e.g. Walk forward to the end of the road. Turn left…

 

Reading

Spend some time reading your book. Try to answer some questions from your parents. You might even enjoy listening to a story from this site:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b007t9wg/clips

 

Role-Play

Set up a ‘shop’ in your house. Find some items to sell, some coins and make some signs and price labels. Try to role-play going to the shops. Perhaps you could make it more interesting by having different types of customer, e.g. a very happy customer, a grumpy customer, etc.!

 

PE

There’s a lot of dance routines and online classes around at the moment. Perhaps you want to try one of these, dependent on mobility:

End of lessons

Think about what you have done well today - write it/draw it on a piece of paper or ‘Post It’ note. Stick it on your wall. And is there anything that you could have done better?

Well done!

 

 

Pine Class - Tuesday 31st March

Good morning, everybody. How are you all doing? Just a few more days’ work and then you can have a break over the Easter holidays. Mr Worsley, Nicola, Karen and Agata

 

Morning work
Find out what you’re going to have for lunch. Draw a picture and write a menu. Ask your parent to write it down for you to copy, if you need to.

Listen to the French song. Sing and sign along. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atNkI6QFZ50

Look at the weather and talk about it with your parent. If you made weather symbols earlier in the week, choose a symbol to represent today’s weather and stick it on your fridge/chart.

 

English

Watch the video and listen to the man giving instructions to make a jam sandwich:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2KxoWtb2VE

Listen again, pause, and write down all the INSTRUCTION words you hear, e.g. ‘cut’ You may need to say these and then copy them from an adult.

 

Maths

Listen to and sing the ‘Counting in 2s’ song:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykAhScPdFNg&safe=active


You may have made a number line from 0 -20 yesterday. Could you make a big number line on the floor?  You could write on scrap paper or put numbers on ‘Post-It’ notes. Now get your parent to ask you addition questions, and walk, hop, or crawl along the number line to do some adding!  The video will remind you how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp9n4kMTuQo

 

PSHE

Ask your parent to help you write another letter or send a text to a relative. Try to think of a really nice message to send to make them feel happy.

 

Reading

Spend ten minutes reading your book. Talk about what happened in the story so far, and what might happen later on. Then find a book from home that you enjoy.

 

Art

On the internet, find a painting of sunflowers by Van Gogh. Could you find items around the house to make some model sunflowers? Or perhaps you could paint or draw and colour your own version.

 

DT

As the Easter holidays are coming, you might want to make some ‘Rice Krispie cakes’ with a parent at some point this week. You may need to wait until shopping has been done! Here is a recipe idea:

Think about what you have done well today - write it/draw it on a piece of paper or ‘Post It’ note. Stick it on your wall. And is there anything that you could have done better?

Well done!

 

 

Wednesday 1st April

Hello everybody. Here are some activities if you wish to do some.

Thank you, and take care. Mr Worsley, Nicola, Karen and Agata

PS – Watch out! It’s April Fools’ Day!

 

Morning work
Find out what you’re going to have for lunch. Draw a picture and write a menu. Ask your parent to write it down for you to copy, if you need to.

Listen to the French song. Sing and sign along. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atNkI6QFZ50

Look at the weather and talk about it with your parent. If you made weather symbols earlier in the week, choose a symbol to represent today’s weather and stick it on your fridge/chart.

 

English

You’ve been doing lots of work on instructions recently. Can you make an ‘Instruction Alphabet’? Write an instruction that starts which each letter of the alphabet. (e.g. A – Add… B – Bring… C – Cut…) This is a real challenge! If you can get more than 15, you’ve done really well!

 

PE

As suggested last week:

If you have a long stick/sweeping brush/umbrella and a small ball (you could make one with screwed up paper), you could practise hockey skills. Set up a course using items to push the ball around. Make a set of goals using two big books – aim and shoot! 

 

French

We have been learning the words for pets and animals. Enjoy watching this video to revise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLd9VoPgwlw

Perhaps you could test your parent!

 

Reading

Spend ten minutes reading your book. Talk about what happened in the story so far, and what might happen later on. Then find a book from home that you enjoy.

 

Science

If you have a spare carrot or two, cut the top off (the carrot can still be used) and place in in a small saucer with water.

Make a prediction: What do you think will happen? Write it down (you could copy an adult’s writing)

Make observations: Watch what happens and draw or write about it every few days. Keep watering.

Was your prediction right? What happened? Why do you think it happened? 

 

End of lessons

Think about what you have done well today - write it/draw it on a piece of paper or ‘Post It’ note. Stick it on your wall. And is there anything that you could have done better? Well done!

 

 

 

Thursday 2nd April

It’s Thursday! As normal, here are some more activities if you wish to do some. Thanks for all your hard work in these unusual times.  Thank you, and take care. Mr Worsley, Nicola, Karen and Agata

 

Morning work
Find out what you’re going to have for lunch. Draw a picture and write a menu. Ask your parent to write it down for you to copy, if you need to.

Listen to the French song. Sing and sign along. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atNkI6QFZ50

Look at the weather and talk about it with your parent. If you made weather symbols earlier in the week, choose a symbol to represent today’s weather and stick it on your fridge/chart.

 

Outdoor learning

If you have a garden, take a small plastic container outside and fill it with a little soil. Use gloves. See how many ‘mini-beasts’ (insects and little animals) you can spot. You could make a list and use tally marks. An adult should help you at all times with this activity. There is a help sheet here: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/483714816211822271/

If you don’t have a garden, perhaps you could make a model minibeast of your own using things you can find around the house, such as paper twisted into strands, or tissue paper. You could try to make a model spider or butterfly.

 

Maths

Try this game where you have to so some addition (and subtraction) tasks. It may be better to have an adult to support. There is a number line on the game to help. Be careful – it looks a little different to the ones we have used before, and it also includes counting back, too. Choose: Count on and back - Within the 10s - 1-20

 https://www.topmarks.co.uk/learning-to-count/helicopter-rescue

If you do well, you could try addition using higher numbers.

If it’s a little too hard, you can try this game:

RE

We have been learning about how we get guidance in our lives. Talk about what your parents/carers do to help you live a good life. You could draw some pictures and write some sentences to go with them if you want. An example might be: My mum cooks me a tasty meal at teatime.

 

Reading

Spend ten minutes reading your book. Talk about what happened in the story so far, and what might happen later on. Then find a book from home that you enjoy.

 

History

In medieval times, knights used to follow a ‘chivalric code’ – this was a list of rules to help them lead good and helpful lives. Could you talk about a list of rules that help you to lead a good life? You could record this on a parents’ phone or iPad.

Also, if you have spare cardboard boxes and pots, or Lego, you may want to build a knight’s castle at home.

 

Geography

Could you draw and colour a map of an imaginary place? Maybe a treasure island, or a theme park? Try to include some symbols. You could do this with an adult, if you need a structure, or by yourself if you want to.

 

End of lessons

Think about what you have done well today - write it/draw it on a piece of paper or ‘Post It’ note. Stick it on your wall. And is there anything that you could have done better?

 

 

 

Friday 3rd April

Good morning, everybody! Well done on all your work at home. Thank you SO much to parents and carers. As it’s the Easter holidays now, you can have a break. Mr Worsley, Nicola, Karen and Agata

Parents/Carers – please keep an eye on the school website for any updates. I will continue to put work/activities up after Easter if needs be. Let’s hope that we can return to normal as soon as possible. THANK YOU – YOU ARE ALL BRILLIANT!

 

Morning work
Find out what you’re going to have for lunch. Draw a picture and write a menu. Ask your parent to write it down for you to copy, if you need to.

Listen to the French song. Sing and sign along. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atNkI6QFZ50

Look at the weather and talk about it with your parent. If you made weather symbols earlier in the week, choose a symbol to represent today’s weather and stick it on your fridge/chart.

 

English

Talk about what you have done this week. Write a diary for each day. Try to include details about what you did, where you did it, when, and who you did it with. It’s also good to include some opinions and descriptions. You may need to copy-write this from a parent. You could also draw pictures.

e.g.

Monday

On Monday, I got up early and had a tasty breakfast with my sister. It was sunny and warm, so we ate our breakfast listening to music and with the window open.

 

Maths

Use blocks, Lego, or pieces of cereal to do some practical addition to 20 (or more if you wish). The adult should two separate piles. Count the number in each pile, and write a number sentence, e.g. 5 + 4 =

Now work this out by ‘counting on’ from the number in the first pile, pointing at the items in the second, e.g. 5… 6,7,8,9 so the answer is 9.

These videos demonstrate:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PUY072JHE4g

 

Music

Can you think of ten different musical instruments? You could have a guessing game where one of you mimes playing an instrument, and the other has to guess what it is.

 

Reading

Spend ten minutes reading your book. Talk about what happened in the story so far, and what might happen later on. Then find a book from home that you enjoy.

 

PE

Try some of these dances ‘from your seat’:
