Good morning Toucans. 

Thank you again to everyone who has engaged with the chat on our discussion page on school spider. It is so lovely to hear how you are getting on with your home learning. Remember I am here for you all day to help with any difficulties you may have or if you just want to pop on a hello message that would be lovely.

  Maths

SHAPE – Reflections with Coordinates See the Power point attached. Our home learning maths lessons will be guided by a recording of Mrs Whittingham’s voice, which will explain what to do (Just click on the little speaker icon on the power point page). I have also included the answers on the last slide so no peaking until you have had a go at answering the questions yourself!

Please watch this video if you can’t access the audio on the PowerPoint. Remember to just pause it when needed and you can play back too if required.

Also try this game to revise coordinates. It also has links to other maths games which I’m sure you will enjoy playing.

  Reading

Toucans, we would love you to read a little each day of the school book you have or a book you have been reading at home.

If you continue to record your reading in your diary and get an adult to sign your diary each time you read, you will still be able to collect your raffle tickets when we are back in school.

Spellings

As its Friday today and we would usually have a test I would like you give yourself one using these words today. Look at each word, say it to yourself and then write it down.

Spelling words:        direction, especially, explanation, appreciate, competition, ancient, cautious, delicious, motion, spacious

Story

(this has been recorded and embedded into our Writing Power Points – enjoy listening to another war poem read by Mrs Whittingham)

Have a great day everyone. Remember to use the Discussion page on School Spider to chat to us about your work today. Enjoy your weekend and I will be in touch on Monday.

Best wishes from Mrs Downing, Mrs Whittingham and Mr Beswick.

Good morning Toucans. 

I hope you all managed to get your home learning completed yesterday and were not hindered by some of our ICT issues. Hopefully, today will run more smoothly.

Thank you to everyone who engaged with the chat on our discussion page on school spider. It was lovely to hear how you were getting on with your work. Keep up the great effort and remember that we are so proud of our diligent Toucans.

Before you start today’s Maths lesson, could you collect some 3D shapes from around your house. Can you name the shapes and describe their properties? E.g. how many faces has your shape got? Are the faces flat or curved?

Also try this game where you have to name and describe 2D and 3D shapes. Make sure you read the instructions on how to play the game.
