Dear Parents,  

We have created a timetable of suggested home learning activities for each week. The activities are being sent out by email on a Monday morning and duplicated here. Please upload any completed work to Seesaw if you would like to do so. Do as much as you are able and work at a pace that suits your family life at this time. Our priority is for you and your family to keep safe.   

Please feel free to work in the way you would prefer, whether that be paper or screen based. We are aware much of the work we are setting is based around using technology and using Seesaw allows us maintain a connection with our children but we are also sensitive to the fact that this may not work for everybody. Please do email us using the class email address if you would like any support or would like to give us feedback.

Many thanks,  

Mrs Laver                      tudors@clewergreen.org.uk

Summer Term 2 Week 7:  13.07.20

Subject Learning Activities

Maths

 

 

Mass and Capacity

This is Week 2 of a 2 week block and consists of 2 lessons. There are also 4 optional fun worksheets at the end. 

National Curriculum Objectives

  • To measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (mm/cm/m); mass (g/kg); volume/capacity (ml/l)
  • To compare, describe and solve practical problems for mass/weight: [e.g. heavy/light, heavier than/lighter than]; capacity and volume [ e.g. full/empty, more than/less than, half, half full, quarter]

At school, there would be lots of practical learning using different sizes of measuring jugs with different scales for l and ml for liquid, as well as scales using g and kg for solids. If you can, make this a practical activity at home and enjoy the practical side of maths and its application in the real world. The worksheets are there to consolidate learning and you will need to judge how much theory you need in comparison to the practical side of the topic.

The extension tasks have some activities that everyone can access.

Final Activities

This week, we are focusing on what has been positive about this year, as well as what you are looking forward to over the coming months.

PLEASE NOTE: These tasks are not due in at the end of the term but instead can carry on over the Summer holiday with ideas and items being added as and when. When we get together for our week in September, we can share the work with the rest of the class!

Task 1: Learning highlights

Create a Power point covering 2 specific areas:

1) Highlight what you have enjoyed this school year. 

This could be activities we covered at school or during your Home Learning time or both. Think about the activities and special days we had before lockdown and pick some of your favourites; include what you enjoyed and why. Maybe there are also special memories you have from learning at home or something you particularly enjoyed.

2) What you are looking forward to in the next school year.

This may be related to Year 4 or more generally related to coming back to school. What are your wishes for your final year at Clewer Green? Maybe there are things you want to improve or practise. Choose your own format and include some detail in your presentation.

Task 2: A letter to your future self

Write a letter to your self using the template provided or create your own. You won't need to share this with the rest of the class unless you specifically want to.

Task 3: Do one of the following or BOTH of them

Task 3a Create a Wellbeing jar. Look at the attached sheet and create your own jar - you can fill it with ideas for the rest of the year, both in and out of school.

Task 3b Create a collage. Produce a collage of pictures and other items to represent your time in lockdown. You could include items from a park or garden, photos, a rainbow, decorated handprints from the members of your family you were in lockdown with, drawings you did. There are many other ideas. You could make a single sheet collage or a booklet if you have a lot of material.

 

French

Parts of the Body

Work through the Power point showing Parts of the Body. Then watch this online clip to help with pronunciation. There are more French words than we've looked at so it's up to you whether you want to expand your knowledge further.

Complete the Body Parts labelling Worksheet or the Activity Sheet. There is also an optional Wordsearch.

Finally, here are the words for you to sing Head, shoulders, knees and toes in French

Investigating your Area
There are three activities this week, all focused around the area in which you live.
 
1) We often spend a lot of time walking around our street and area without really looking at what is there. Your first task is to take a walk (with an adult) starting at your house or flat and take along a copy of the Observation Sheet (or write down the list). As you walk, see how many items you can tick off, The first section contains different types of buildings, the second is more rural and contains items you may see outside your street. You may not see them all!
 
2) Following on from your walk, you need to draw a map of your local area. It must include:
  • Your house or flat
  • Clewer Green School
  • At least 6 different streets
You decide how detailed your map is and what symbols you choose to use (if any). If you do use symbols, you must include a key.
 
3) Finally, you are going to create a My World template. Have a look at a finished example then print out the My World Template document which has 4 blank circles. (If you can't print it out, draw round objects to give you 4 different shaped circles.)Then click on instructions to learn what to do next. Have fun with it!

Classroom Instructions and Objects

This lesson revisits simple classroom instruction vocabulary and common objects.

1) Watch the Classroom Instruction Power point.

We have used all the instructions during regular lessons, except these which are new:

Rangez vos chaises    =   put your chairs away

Venez au tapis      = come to the carpet

Rangez vos affaires     = tidy up

Allez-y  = off you go

For taisez vous (stop talking) we use Silence as it is the same in English as French.

Complete the Classroom Instructions worksheet. Choose either 1 star or 2 star so that you can concentrate on accurate spelling.

 

2) Watch the What's in the Classroom Power point and What's in your Pencil Case Power point to remind you of common classroom objects. Click here for a list of new words that haven't been covered before. There is also an Optional Worksheet to complete. 

Finally, here are some thoughts on learning French and a helpful game.

Perimeter

National Curriculum objective: to measure the perimeter of simple 2-D shapes. 

Lesson 1: Adding lengths

This a recap lesson to remind children that there are 10mm in a cm and 100cm in a metre before moving onto perimeter. It is important to use the correct unit of measurement, depending on the object being measured. Discuss different units of measurement and what might be measured using them (ie teaspoon, chair, field, car)

If you have a ruler, practise measuring objects, making sure that the measuring starts at 0 not 1 as this is a common mistake.

Complete the Add Lengths Worksheet on Seesaw.

NOTE: Worksheets are available on Seesaw to complete online. Remember that there is often more than 1 page to each worksheet.

Lesson 2: Measure Perimeter

Watch the BBC video for an explanation of perimeter then try the examples and short quiz. At school, this would be a practical lesson with the children measuring the perimeter of various objects. This can be done at home (for example a book, table, door). There would also be a discussion of perimeter versus the size of an object as it can sometimes be surprising. You could also set a challenge to try and find the largest and smallest perimeter then prove it.

Complete the Measuring Perimeter Worksheet on Seesaw.

Lesson 3: Calculate perimeter

Work through the Calculating Perimeter Power point and use the squared paper to complete the examples.

Complete the Calculating Perimeter Worksheet on Seesaw.

Lesson 4: Equivalent Lengths cm and m

This is a further recap lesson to remind you that 100cm = 1m. If you are comfortable with this, then as usual, Lesson 4 is an optional further lesson.

Last week, we focused on images, logos and slogans. This week we are looking at the use of language and it can persuade you to buy something. The information and tasks are all contained in the Advertising 2 Powerpoint. You will also need to access the Questions worksheet which you can open either here or as a link in the slide set.

Lesson 2: Reading Comprehension plus recap on prefixes and suffixes

1) First, watch the video about  Sun Safety then read the Sun Safety text and answer the questions.  Although there is a 1 star version, I think everyone should be attempting the 2 star or 3 star version of the text with corresponding questions and answers. The text gets more difficult depending on the star (3 star is the most difficult). 

2) To finish with, there is a recap activity on prefixes and suffixes which we have covered many times in class. Complete the table on Seesaw.

Lesson 1: Features of Advertisements

1) In this lesson, you will need the slide set Advertising but before you open it, go to Lesson 1

2) Look at the pictures on Images. For each of them, write down 3 words to describe how the images make you feel. Think about how these images could be used in an advert.

3) Now find 3 advertisements in a magazine or printed off from a website. Or use the examples document and pick 3 from there. Write a paragraph about each and describe how they are trying to sell their product. Remember to check through the points listed in the slide set.

Lesson 2: Logos and Slogans

1) Do you know what a logo is? Can you think of any you already know?

Definition: A logo is a symbol or other small design used by an organisation to identify anything to do with its products or services.

Now look at slides 1-5 on the slide set Logos and Slogans

2) What about slogans? Do you know what one is? Can you think of any?

Definition: A slogan is short and striking or memorable phrase used in advertising.

Now continue with the slide set.

You may not remember all the words but the Power point will give you the option to listen to the correct way of saying the words. Please don't worry - just have a go and encourage an adult to do it with you! Learning another language at first school is all about having fun with it and gaining confidence. Maybe you could arrange a zoom call to practise with a friend?

Pets

Go through the Power point on Pets. To say qu'est-ce que c'est (meaning "What is it?), there is a 4 second video to help.

Complete the worksheet "as-tu an animal?" meaning "Do you have a pet?"

  • Carry out a survey or just discuss what pets you know friends have, if this is not possible in person.
  • When writing underneath the picture, write "J'ai un/une followed by the animal name in French ("I have a ")
  • Remember that all nouns are either boys or girls and therefore need un (boy) or une (girl)

Recap: Multiplication and Division

This is a 2 week block of lessons. This is the first week and consists of 3 lessons.

National Curriculum objectives for Year 3 Multiplication and Division can be found here

We have already covered this at school and would normally revisit it as well as look at problem solving. At this stage, each child may have a different level of understanding and some content may need to be retaught. Others may just need a reminder of the steps.

We have learned various methods of multiplying a 2 digit number x 1 digit number (eg 23 x 4). We started with practical methods such as using place value counters then moved to written methods. (These can be seen on White Rose clips)

Written methods move through a natural progression of grid method, expanded multiplication then finally short multiplication. The reason for this is so that children fully understand the values behind the numbers they are using.

There are reminder videos for each of these methods:

At this stage (before the recap), your child will probably feel more comfortable with one method over the others. 

Lesson 1

As well as the clips above, there is also a White Rose clip (Summer term week 4 wc 11th May lesson 2) which concentrates on place value counters and the short multiplication method.

Now complete Multiplication Worksheet 1 on Seesaw.

NOTE: Worksheets are available on Seesaw to complete online. Remember that there is often more than 1 page to each worksheet.
