Spring Term 2022
Home Learning Weeks 1 and 2
This week we will be focussing on Healthy Eating Week, also looking at exercise and rest to keep healthy. We will be making a fruit salad in class and looking at other activities (see resources below).
We are recapping and consolidating multiplication and division using times tables. Resources (ppt and worksheets) are below. There are practise times table sheets attached too.
We are practising word groups (root, suffix and prefix). We have been doing some dictation using high frequency spelling words. We are basing our extended English listening, speaking, comprehension and writing tasks on our new topic 'Ancient China'. This week we are looking at the Willow Pattern, it's history and the story behind it (see resources below). On listening to the story, the children are jotting down interesting adjectives, adverbs and verbs.
In school we will be using non-fiction books, printouts and chrome books to research specific areas of the Shang Dynasty and life in Ancient China. We will collate the information to make a class information booklet. (See links and resources below.)
See resources below. We have been practising the short column method for multiplication (including carrying) on whiteboards.
We have been creating a story map for the story "Lin Yi's Lantern"
We are looking at the hierarchy in the Shang Dynasty and finding out what different jobs entailed (see resources). We are completing the activities (using the information sheets to write about the different jobs, and sorting the cards).
