Welcome back to home learning! I hope you all had a fabulous half term and enjoyed the beautiful weather.
Don't forget tomorrow (Monday 1st June) is an INSET day so you have another day to relax.
This week I have planned some activities around the 'Summer' theme so hopefully your learning can take you outside.
There is a fun activity to do do called 'Animal Mash Ups'
There is also a reading comprehension about birds you may see in your garden. Perhaps you could try and spot some of these birds in your own garden or whilst out for a walk.
Finally there is a SPaG activity to do.
Lesson 1 - 10 x table
Lesson 2 - Sharing
Lesson 3 - Grouping
Lesson 4 - Odd and Even Numbers
This week we are thinking about the change from Spring to Summer.
I have attached a powerpoint to get you thinking but maybe you can go on a hunt to see what signs of Summer you can see.
What plants and flowers can you see at this time of year? What is happening to the trees? What birds can you spot? What is the weather like?
What are people wearing? Why? You could take photos, do some drawings or keep a weather diary. There are lots of different ways to show what you have learnt. I look forward to seeing your ideas. Have fun!
Congratulations to Mikey who made it to 2nd place yesterday on The Maths Factor's leaderboard. He also came 3rd today.
Awesome home learning Mikey!
Look at all the amazing things we have been doing in our home learning. From artists and chefs to historians and bridge builders!
Hello Fistral Class,
I hope you had a lovely bank holiday weekend.
Don't forget you can send us photos of your VE day celebrations on Seesaw.
Here are this week's home learning tasks.
This week is a task all about designing and creating a reading den.
There is also a reading comprehension about mini beasts and an activity about expanded noun phrases to complete.
All the activities are attached below.
The videos to go with these tasks are still available on www.whiterosemaths.com but they are no longer giving the worksheets away for free.
I have attached what you need below instead.
Monday - Adding and Subtracting Tens
Tuesday - Add 2 Digit Numbers
Wednesday - Subtract 2 Digit Numbers
Thursday - Bonds to 100
Friday - Maths Challenge Day
This week why don't you have a go at creating your own time capsule.
Click on the link below to find out how to do it.
I hope you are all well. Thank you to all of you who have sent me messages and photographs on Seesaw.
It is lovely to see what you have all been doing.
Here are this week's tasks.
This week the focus is on addition and subtraction. All the sheets are attached below and here is the link to the White Rose website which has the lesson introduction videos:
Monday - addition and subtraction bonds
Tuesday - comparing number sentences
Wednesday - related facts
Thursday - add and subtract ones
Friday - BANK HOLIDAY!
This week's activity is based on a book by Oliver Jeffers and is all about imaginary friends.
The task is attached below. There is also a reading comprehension task and a grammar task about using effective adjectives.
On Friday it is VE day. Find out what this means in the attached powerpoint and have fun colouring the flags to make bunting.
Maybe you could have a picnic or a tea party to celebrate and send us some photos.
This week's work is based on a story written by author Ed Vere.
The activities are attached below.
This week the children are learning about statistics. It is not on the White Rose home learning site but it is a short unit that we need to cover. It is 6 days long so will continue into next week. I have attached the work below.
Some parents have asked for handwriting to practise so I have also attached a booklet that you could work through at your own pace.
There is a short task this week to help children think about when to use a question mark, a full stop and an exclamation mark.
Don't forget to continue reading a book from Oxford Owl each day to practise your reading skills. I have also attached a comprehension about hedgehogs to complete.
Bridge Schools have worked alongside the National Trust to create an exciting competition for you to focus on during home learning time! It looks really fun and will allow you to be involved in nature. Below is the PDF with all of the key information that you need to enter.
I look forward to seeing your entries - good luck!!

For maths you can follow the link to the White Rose home learning page. This week's work is all about measuring and there is a video with a follow up activity to complete each day.
The children could also complete a couple of activities from their green 'Living & Learning' book if they have time.
It looks as though the sun may shine this week so maybe try choosing some outdoor activities if you are able.
Welcome back to home learning after the Easter Holidays!
Firstly, please remember that when it comes to ‘home learning’ we would like you to do as little or as much of this as you can- there is absolutely no pressure. We know that many of you will be working at home yourselves, trying to teach multiple children, having challenges with internet speeds etc., so please do not worry if things don't quite go to plan.
If in doubt, ask your child to pick up a book and enjoy reading, do a fun Joe Wicks workout or go on a minibeast hunt in the garden!
Whilst the children are missing education in school, we are sure that they are learning many wonderful life skills at home with you, as well as spending time with their families.
Please be assured that we will pick up where they left off, once children return to school and everything returns to normal.
Resources are below for literacy.
For numeracy, please click on the link below which takes you to the 'White Rose - Home Learning' website. This is the scheme we follow and the resources they have provided for home learning are excellent. The resources do not need printing. Please remember to read daily.
If you need any support with any of the work please send me a message on Seesaw and I'll be happy to help.
Thank-you very much.
Take care and stay safe.
If your children love Lego click on the link below for a Lego version of the Easter story.
We have been keeping our calculation skills on the boil today with some outdoor maths. We used the garden wall, some chalk and a pile of stones! This helped us recap on doubles and all the ways to make 11.
On Mathletics we have been looking at time so we are recapping on telling the time to the half hour before moving onto quarter past and quarter to. To help with this we stopped regularly throughout the day to tell the time (10.30 snack time, 11.30 story time, 12.30 lunchtime, etc) so they had a reason to learn it.
We recommend reading a book from Oxford Owl daily at your child's level. I have messaged you all a link to this website on See-Saw. Your child's reading level should be in their reading record but if you are unsure which colour bookband they are on, feel free to message me.
For writing today, we wrote a letter to our grandparents to tell them about our weekend. However, if we were in school we would be linking our literacy and R.E. and learning about the Easter story. There are some good powerpoints on Twinkl you can download which is now free. The children could read the powerpoints and discuss them. Later in the week maybe they could have a go at writing the Easter story.
I have e-mailed you daily updates on See-saw as this is a more interactive way to communicate with you and I have loved seeing what your children have been up to. Keep sending me your photos on Seesaw as we hope to make a display of what we have all been up to in our home learning.
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
From June 2nd 2020, Delaware Primary (and as hub for Gunnislake Primary) is open only for children of key workers, vulnerable groups and Year 6 children. We will update parents and carers regularly as the situation changes.
