Summer Holiday Home Learning

We would like all the children to be happy and well rested when they return in September, ready to begin another academic year. Their emotional wellbeing is so important; therefore, we are only providing you with a few activities.

Painted rocks, Summer, beach, flip flops, Awesome Summer Rocks ...

Paint / decorate a pebble

You can be as creative as you like. Have a look at the website below for some fun design ideas.

https://www.familydaystriedandtested.com/awesome-easy-rock-painting-ideas/.

Bring your pebble to school on 7th September 2020. We will be creating a very special path in our wildlife area using all your pebbles.

‘All About Me’ Double Page Spread

We would like all children to complete a double page spread about themselves. Use a piece of A3 paper (or two pieces of A4 stuck together) and add information to share with your new teacher so they can learn more about you. Children will see an example of a double page spread when they meet their new teacher on Monday 20th July or Tuesday 21st July. If your child is not in school on these days, you will find some examples below.

All classes will be looking at and using the double page spread in the first week back of school in September, so make sure you bring yours into school on Monday 7th September 2020.

Summer Reading Challenge

Don’t forget that Norfolk Library is holding their summer reading challenge virtually this year. It would be great if you could take part.

Details can be found here … https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents for their continued support this year, particularly during the unprecedented times in the Summer term. We are incredibly proud of all the children and we cannot wait to welcome them back in September.

Have a wonderful Summer.

Wren Class wc 13th July

Hello Wonderful Wrens,

Wow! We cannot believe this is our last home learning of the year. It really feels quite emotional to be writing this, knowing that our little Wrens are going to fly the nest to Year 1.

We are so proud of you all, for how hard you have worked whilst the school has been closed. We are sad we didn’t get to spend more time with you and do all the fun things we had planned during the Summer Term. However, we will be sure to pop in and see you in your new classroom in September and help you settle in. We are only next door and we know we will see you happily playing with Mr Allard in no time at all.

We look forward to seeing some of you on the school field to say a proper goodbye on Tuesday 21st July, and Mr Allard is looking forward to saying hello too. If you are not coming to school for this session, we would like to take this opportunity to say goodbye to you now. We hope you have a truly wonderful Summer and we will see you at the school gate on Monday 7th September. I bet you will all be taller!

Best wishes

Mrs Leaford and Mrs Nixon 😊

Phonics:

For the last few weeks of the year we are going to focus on some key activities for our daily phonics lessons. We believe that these activities will really help your child to prepare for the move to year 1 in September.

The daily Read, Write, Inc. lessons are still available to watch at the website below.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ

Literacy:

This week the focus for our literacy work is continuing with the seaside. The children are going to write a longer story, over the course of the whole week. We would ask children write a minimum of one sentence each day, but if they write more then this is great! Try to encourage children to add new sentences to the same piece of paper, so that at the end of the week they have one story on one piece of paper. We would love to see them on Tapestry.

Maths:

This week we will be completing Maths activities around our seaside theme. They will incorporate a range of areas covered in our maths lessons this year.

Literacy

Maths

Monday

  • Watch the Read, Write, Inc set 2 speed sound lesson on You Tube. – ar
  • Complete the set 2 spelling lesson with Rosie.
  • Spend 5 minutes on Teach Your Monster to Read (details sent to Tapestry)

Logon to Espresso to watch a story about going to the seaside. We hope this might give you some good ideas for your own story.

Understanding the World – Journey to the Coast – Videos – Lucy and Tom at the Seaside.

Today you are going to write the introduction to your story. Write 1 sentence about how you travelled to the seaside. Did you go by car, bike, maybe even train? You could also write a sentence about what you saw on the journey. What did you see out the window?

 

Everyone enjoys filling buckets with water from the sea.

Look at the PowerPoint named Capacity Monday, to remind you of the words we use to describe amounts of water.

Look at Monday maths sheet.

Ask a grown up to read the speech bubbles to you. Draw a line to match each person to their bucket. Finish the speech bubbles using the words empty, nearly empty, half full, nearly full and full.

Why don’t you have a go at filling a bucket. Ask a grown up to tell you how much to put in the bucket using the words above. Can you make sure you get the right amount in each bucket?

Tuesday

  • Watch the Read, Write, Inc set 2 speed sound lesson on You Tube. – or
  • Complete the ‘hold a sentence 1’ lesson with Rosie on the RWI You Tube page.

Today you are going to write the ‘build up’ to your story.

Write 1 (or more) sentence about something you did at the seaside. Did you build a sandcastle. Did you eat an ice cream? Did you go in the sea?

Watch the Espresso video on solid shapes, to remind you of the names of 3D shapes (Espresso – foundation – maths – shape – videos – solid shapes).

Have a look at Tuesday Maths sheet. Can you find the shapes hidden in the seaside picture? Tick once you have found them, and then write the name of each shape.

Some shapes are easier to find than others!

Wednesday

  • Watch the Read, Write, Inc set 2 speed sound lesson on You Tube. – air
  • Complete the set 2 spelling lesson with Rosie.
  • Spend 5 minutes on Teach Your Monster to Read (details sent to Tapestry)

Oh no! Today is the problem part of our story!

Something must happen in your story. Write a sentence to explain the problem.

Maybe a big wave knocked over your sandcastle? Maybe a seagull stole your swimming towel? Maybe you got lost?

Let your imagination run wild!

Look at Wednesday maths sheet.

First you need to crack the code!


Once you have cracked the code can you work out the answer to the addition calculation?

Thursday

  • Watch the Read, Write, Inc set 2 speed sound lesson on You Tube. – ir
  • Complete the ‘hold a sentence 1’ lesson with Rosie on the RWI You Tube page.

Solve the problem from Wednesday!

How does the ‘problem’ get resolved. Maybe you come up with an idea to protect your sandcastle, or you got the seagull to drop your towel. Maybe you got lost but were quickly found by the lifeguards or found your way to the ice-cream van!

We have talked about patterns before and how they repeat over and over again. It is best to say your pattern out loud so you can hear how it keeps repeating.

Have a go at making your own pattern using beach objects or the sheet provided. (Thursday Maths Sheet)

Maybe you could collect stones or shells next time you are at the beach and make a pattern with them.

Friday

  • Watch the Read, Write, Inc set 2 speed sound lesson on You Tube. – ou
  • Complete the set 2 spelling lesson with Rosie.
  • Spend 5 minutes on Teach Your Monster to Read (details sent to Tapestry)

Today, it is time to end of your story.

Think about a nice ending sentence or two. You might want to say how the whole day at the beach made you feel. Maybe you can’t wait to go back. Maybe you were so tired after such a briliant day, you fell fast asleep on the way home!

Now get an adult or older sibling to help you read your WHOLE story out loud to see how amazing it sounds.

Well done you!

A day at the beach is such a great day!

Have a look at the pictures in Friday’s Maths Sheet and have a go at sequencing the events.

Now it is time to add your own time to each event.

Talk to an adult about the different times that some of the things could have happened and draw these on the clock faces provided.

You could use this sheet to tell a story too!

Hello Wonderful Wrens,

We hope you all had a great week last week designing your rafts and bridges for The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Well done to Benjamin, Ellisia, Georgie, Nancy, Rosie, Samuel and Toby for earning your first reward on Teach Your Monster to Read.

This week we are off to the seaside! Who wants an ice-cream? Who can build the best sandcastle? What have caught in your fishing net in the rockpools? I bet you love the beach as much as we do…..

We will use all of these ideas in a story this week and your Maths problem solving involves ice-creams! Yum.

Take care and have fun.

We are off on a trip to the beach today. Can you write a list of the things we need to take with us?

What will we need to keep us safe in the sun?

What will we need to play with?

What will we need to eat?

Complete the addition colour by number activity today (named Monday Maths).

Use 1 of the methods below to find the answers (^^^ is the most tricky method):

^ use objects to help you find the answer

^^ use a number line to help you find the answer

^^^ count on or back mentally

Look at the example pictures (named Literacy Tuesday) to give you some ideas.

Ice cream problem solving today. Look at sheet named Tuesday Maths.

Do you think you will be able to find all the different ice cream choices?

(If you do not want to print the sheet your child could draw ice creams on a piece of paper to show the answers)

We would love to see your completed pictures and poems on Tapestry. If you are happy for them to be included on the school website then please let us know in the observation.

It’s hot at the beach today. Time for an ice-cream to cool down.

Look at the activity named Wednesday Maths.

Work out the cost of each ice cream.

Decide whether you want to do the single scoop ice creams or the ice creams with 3 scoops (or all of them!). The ice creams with 3 scoops are the trickiest.

(If you do not want to print the sheet your child could work out the answers on the screen, and write the answers on a piece of paper)

Thursday

Watch out for the crabs! Today you are going to draw and label what you might find in a rockpool. Use the tock pool template to draw on or create your own and look at the rock pool pictures and identification sheet to help you think of some good ideas.

Have a go at playing this fish game called ‘Fish Tank.’ You have to look at the number in the box, work out a Maths number sentence that gives you that answer and then catch that number of fish. E.g if the number in the box is 5, you might write down 4+1=5 or 7-2=5. Then catch 5 fish.

https://www.kiddle.co/

Can you write down some facts that you didn’t know before today?

Have a go at setting up your own seaside shop. You might decide to sell ice-creams, fishing rods, beach balls, sweets, swimming costumes or shorts, googles, summer hats, beach toys. You can go round your house to find any items that might be sold in your shop or you could use the pictures provided.

Now think about how much they might cost. 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50, £1 or £2. You could label your items and then role play playing the part of the shop keeper or the customer. Have fun!

Hello Wonderful Wrens,

What a hot week it was last week. I hope you all had your paddling pools out and you could cool down in the shade!

We hope you enjoyed Supertato. We loved seeing all the new Supertatoes that you created … they were all different and all super! What amazing adventures they all had too!

This week we are doing another traditional tale. It may be one that you are less sure of. If you have your own copies of ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ at home, make sure you read it together with your family to see if your version differs from the one you watch on Monday.

Take care and have fun.

Virtual Sports Day

TO BE COMPLETED BY FRIDAY 19TH JUNE.

ANNOUNCED W/C 22nd JUNE!

Next week would have been our KS1 and KS2 sports days, although things are a little bit different at the moment, we did not want that to stop us… so we have changed the way that we are doing it this year!

Miss Marriott and Mrs Thacker have given you 5 races/challenges to complete:

  1. Triple speed bounce jump.
  2. Hurdles (all 5 hurdles count as 1 time through/1 point).
  3. ‘Sock’/egg and spoon race.
  4. Target throw.
  5. Dribble course.

We have made a video to show how to do each one. You can find these below.

  • Any (safe) objects can be used to do these challenges – toys or tea towels work just as well!
  • Count how many times through you can do each challenge in 30 seconds (you will need somebody to time you).
  • These challenges can be made harder by moving the obstacles further apart and increasing the distance or made easier by moving them closer together.
  • Put your family’s score (everybody is welcome to join in but please only put on 1 score per person) on the Microsoft forms link for your colour team (please check you are putting it on the right one).
  • Have fun – keep active Wicklewood!
  • If you would like to share some pictures of you completing our virtual sports day, please send them to lapwing@wicklewood.norfolk.sch.uk – we would love to see them!

Monday

Read the book Tug Tug (at the bottom of the page).

Discuss with an adult why Black Hat Bob’s thought bubble at the end of the story was funny.

Watch Mrs Nixon’s story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears on Tapestry.

Do you think Goldilocks was a good girl? Why or why not?

Watch Bert and Ernie tell you about the language of size (big and small).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWtexGTEcX8

You may also like this funny video about big and small.

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

Find 3 of the same object from around your house. Can you arrange them in size order? Have you got 3 different size bowls like the 3 bears?

Tuesday

Look at the ‘ch’ and ‘sh’ sheet at the bottom of the page.

Use the book you read yesterday and solve the clues to complete the activity.

Draw an outline of a house. Downstairs you need 2 rooms. Upstairs you need 1 room. Print (or draw) the pictures of the different objects for the room. Can you put them in the right rooms, in size order starting with the smallest?

Mrs Leaford has made an example at the bottom of the page if you are not sure what to do.

Use your picture to help you retell the story to a grown up.

Look at the letter (at the bottom of the page) from Goldilocks. She needs your help.

Can you print and sort the things that belong to the 3 bears? Put them in size order, starting with the smallest.

Try to use the correct words to describe the objects. Remember for height we use tall/taller and short/shorter, for length we use long/longer and short/shorter. For size we use big/bigger and small/smaller.

Wednesday

Look at the sheet ‘Wednesday phonics’. Can you complete the crossword using your set 2 sounds?

Look at the sheet named ‘Wednesday Literacy’. Can you fill out the poster with Goldilocks details? If you aren’t sure of some, you can make them up.

Watch this video to learn about repeating patterns.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9wt4K5Zup0

Now login into Espresso – Key Stage 1 – Music. Select ‘music maker’ game. Choose 2 objects. Put them into the boxes in a repeating pattern. Click play and you can here the musical pattern you have made. You could make it even trickier by using 3 or more different objects.

Thursday

Read the book Chips (at the bottom of the page) Discuss why Kim is feeling so angry at the end.

Do you think the others in the story were nice or not?

Use the pictures below to sequence the story of Goldilocks. Stick them in the correct order on the template provided. Leave the boxes free for tomorrow. Colour in your favourite picture. Why do you like that part of the story the best?

Using the Goldilocks pattern sheet below, have a go at saying out loud the pattern to an adult.

Hearing the pattern out loud as well as seeing it can really help.

Then use the little pictures at the bottom to continue the pattern.

Friday

Look through the books to find tricky red words of, I, said, no. Count how many you can find and colour in how many times you spot it to make a bar chart. Which was the most popular tricky word in this book?

Read the simple sentences (Goldilocks story sentences) which tell you different parts of the Goldilocks story. Can you cut them out and stick them below the pictures that match the sentence? Now read them all again in the right order to retell the story to someone in your family.

Have a go at creating your own pattern using some of the pictures from the Goldilocks story (Goldilocks pattern pictures) below. Think about whether your pattern will have two different things in it or three. Think about the size of the pictures too. You might want to do big Daddy Bear, Small Baby Bear, then Mummy Bear and then repeat it, Remember to show at least two different repeating sections of your pattern.
