English

This week we will continue to use the story written by Julia Donaldson in our English learning. You have five tasks for this week. You will need a family member to help you discuss the activities. Your family member may want to write down your thoughts and ideas in your book. We look forward to seeing your learning uploaded onto Class Dojo.

 

Monday 10th January 2020

Task One

Read the first two pages of the story.

pages 1-2

After you have read it discuss with a family member what you think about the snail’s family?

You can read it again if you need too.

Why do you think they are telling her to ‘Be quiet! Don’t wriggle! Sit still! Stay put!’?

Have you ever been told similar things by your family or people close to you?

How does it feel when you’re told this?

 

Task Two

Look at the picture, looking carefully at the snail’s different facial expressions.

How does the travelling snail look?

Do her family have the same expressions on their faces?

Discuss with a family member how you think the snail’s family feels.

What emotions are they showing on their faces? Is it the same or different from the travelling Snail?

Task Three

The illustrator, Axel Scheffler pays careful attention to how he draws the eyes and mouths of the snails to convey different emotions.

Look at the different ways of drawing he has drawn the eyebrows to convey emotion on the snails faces:

What emotions do you think the snail faces here are showing?

Have a look at the emotion cards to help you with different emotion names.

Can you identify which emotions the snail’s family faces are showing you using the cards to help you?

Task Four

Choose one of the snail’s family members to talk about. Tell your family member in a verbal sentence what emotion they are showing and why you think that. For example, you may tell a family member

“this snail is feeling angry because his eyebrows are pointing up”.

Can you write your sentence down in your book?

Before you write your sentence:

  • Decide how you think your chosen snail is feeling.
  • Think in your head about what you want to write in your sentence.
  • Say it out loud.
  • Tell a family member your sentence.
  • Say it again.

When you are writing remember to use:

  • Capital letters.
  • Finger spaces.
  • Full stop.

Don’t forget to use your phonic mat to help you sound out the words.

 

Tuesday 11th January 2020

Today we will continue thinking about emotions the illustrator Axel Scheffler draws on the snails and how it helps us to understand how the snails feel.

Have a look in a mirror and make some these faces, can you remember the name of the emotions they are showing?

  • What is your mouth doing when you make these faces?
  • How might you feel if you were one of the family members and the snail said she wanted to leave?
  • How might your eyes and mouth look if you felt like that?

Now you are going to draw the face of your chosen snail! Draw the face like the image above. You can colour it in if you wish to.

Think about how you will draw the eyes, eyebrows and the mouth to show that emotion.

Will your snail be:

  • Angry?
  • Hurt?
  • Annoyed?
  • Upset?
  • Pleased?
  • shocked?
  • Jealous?
  • worried

Underneath your drawing, label the emotion and write in a speech bubble what the family member might say to the snail. Look at the emotion example to help you.

You can use the emotion cards to help you too.

Before you write your sentence:

  • Think about what emotion are you writing about.
  • Think in your head about what you want to write in your sentence.
  • Say it out loud.
  • Tell a family member your sentence.
  • Say it again.

When you are writing remember to use:

  • Capital letters.
  • Finger spaces.
  • Full stop.

Don’t forget to use your phonic mat to help you sound out the words.

The video below is the first three pages of the story.

After you have watched it discuss with a family member. Do you think the snail should go with the whale?

You can watch the story again if you need too.

 

Task One

For this task you will need to think about Adjectives can you remember what an adjective is?

Adjectives are words that are used to help describe or give description to people, places, and things.

For example, if we were to describe this cat.

  • What word could you use to describe it? Share your ideas with your family.

Task Two

  • What words does the whale use to entice the snail to go with him? (Entice means to attract or tempt someone to do something, making it sound exciting.)
  • How does the whale do this?

Look at the words the whale uses in his description of where they could go?

Can you remember what these kinds of words are called? A………

Underline the adjectives in the text and stick them in your book.

You can find the text here. Or it will be in the pack you collected from school.

Task Three

Think about the language that Julia Donaldson has used in the whale’s description? Would it persuade you to want to travel with the whale? Do you think it makes the whale’s description of the journey sound magical and exciting?

Think back to your task from yesterday and reflect on how the family of snails would feel if the snail went with the whale. Now make a final decision about whether you think the snail should stay with her family or go and travel with the whale.

Can you write a sentence explaining your reasons why you think the snail should go?

Start your sentence with

I think the snail should go because……….

Or

I think the snail should stay because……….

 

Before you write your sentence:

  • Think about if you think the snail should stay or go.
  • Decide what your snail is going to do and the reason why.
  • Think in your head about what you want to write in your sentence.
  • Say it out loud.
  • Tell a family member your sentence.
  •  Say it again.

When you are writing remember to use:

  • Capital letters.
  • Finger spaces.
  • Full stop.

Don’t forget to use your phonic mat to help you sound out the words.

Think about the language you could use to persuade her to stay or go.

There is an Example Note here or in your learning pack.

Task One

  • Highlight the adjectives you can see in both of the notes and stick them in your book.

Task Two

  • Write your note in your book under the highlighted text you have stuck in.

 

Before you write your sentence:

  • Think about if you think the snail should stay or go.
  • Think about the adjectives you could use to persuade the snail to stay or go.

Friday 14th January 2020

The lesson video is below, click on the play button on the left and then the enlarge button on the right.

If you are unable to play the lesson all the instructions are below the video.

The video below is the first three pages of the story.

Task One

watch the first three pages of the story.

After you have watched it discuss with a family member

  • Why is the whale singing to the snail?
  • What does he sing about?

Task Two

Listen to the song ‘Come with me under the sea’ from CBeebies Something Special

 

Now have a look at the lyrics of the song (here or in your learning pack) with a family member.

What do you notice about the words?

Look at the highlighted words below:

I see a fish, swimming along beside me

Do you see a fish, swimming along beside me?

I’m sure I saw a fish, go swimming by me!

The words that are highlighted are nouns and verbs.

A noun is a person, place, thing, or animal.

Verbs are words that show actions, motions, doing, or states of being. They can also demonstrate how someone feels.

  • Can you go through the text and underline or highlight all the different nouns and verbs.
  • Can you use two different colours? One for the nouns and one for the verbs?

Task Three

You are going to write your own verse of the song. You need to think of a sea animal that you want to write about.

To help you, watch this video

  • Write down as many different sea animals as you can in your book.

Use the Brainstorm (here or in your learning pack.)

When you have written down the animals, think about the way that they move.

  • How could you describe their movement? What verbs could you use? Are the animals walking? Swimming? Waddling?
  • What verbs can you think off to describe the animal’s movement?

Write them down on the brainstorm sheet and stick them in your book.

Now that you have brainstormed the sea animals and written down a list of verbs to describe their movement, you will use your ideas to write a verse for the song.

For example

I see a Penguin , waddling along beside me

Do you see a Penguin, waddling along beside me?

I’m sure I saw a Penguin, go waddling by me!

What animals can you think off? Write your verse and sing it to your family!

We will put all the children’s ideas together to make a class song. Keep looking on class Dojo to see the class song that your teachers will put together when everyone has uploaded their learning!

RE

This term in RE we are looking at the lives of some people for whom Jesus was good news.

Jesus offered friendship, forgiveness and peace. We will think about how these three offers are ‘good news’.

This week we are looking at the good news of forgiveness, if you do wrong. In the book of Luke Jesus taught: ‘Forgive and you will be forgiven’. Your task this week is to write these words Jesus said in the centre of a piece of paper. Think about all the people who you might need to forgive and draw these people around the words. Once you have done this draw a speech bubble from each person, with the word ‘Sorry’ in it. Please upload this to ClassDojo.

History

We began looking at who are our local heroes? This week we will be looking at Michael Bond.

Michael Bond was a British author. He is best known for a series of fictional stories for children, featuring the character of Paddington Bear. In the first book the Brown family find the bear at Paddington Station, and adopt him, naming the bear after the station. We can walk to Paddington station from school in just 25 minutes!

Michael Bond lived in London, not far from Paddington Station, the place that inspired many of his books. More than 35 million Paddington books have been sold around the world, have been published in nearly twenty countries, in over forty languages and the characters have also been featured in film and on television. His first book was published in 1958 and his last in 2017, that’s a span of 59 years!

Have a look at the link with the story of Paddington:
