Today’s lesson will be to continue writing up your plan on ‘How to make a Celtic roundhouse’.  This needs to be completed today.

Remember this is your best work and you must include everything on the check list, this is:

  • That it has a title (underlined!)
  • Subheadings (for each of the steps)
  • opening sentence/ paragraph (this was done last lesson)
  • You do not need bullet points, you are writing each out in full sentences using conjunctions (see word map for this)
  • you have used adverbs and prepositions for time, place and cause (see word map from last lesson for this on Wednesday)
  • you have used imperative verbs (bossy verbs)- see word map for these too.
  • that each step is  separated by a line and then the subheading.

You must include a final conclusion once you have written all these steps out in neat, remember you are writing out 4 steps from your plan.  A conclusion sums up what you have done/ what you have made.  Here is an example:

Example:

Well done on making your very own Celtic roundhouse!

I hope you have found this set of instructions easy to follow and feel confident to be able to build your very own Celtic roundhouse!  Why not cook a meal on an open fire inside, be careful not to let the wood catch alight!

Happy World Book Day 2021!  We are hoping this day will give you chance to do something different. We have thought of a selection of activities that you can try throughout the day at your own pace – just choose whichever ones you think you will enjoy and feel able to do!  The learning today is the same for each class so if you have siblings in school you can do the activities together if you like.  The teachers will still be available on Class Dojo at the normal times and we’d love to hear and see what you have been up to so do send them photos and messages if you are able!  Your suggested activities for the day are below…

Don’t forget to take some time to just read, read, read, read and read throughout the day too!!

Book Cover Challenge!

Can you recreate a book cover or blend into a book?! Have a look at the photos below for some inspiration!  You can keep it simple or go really all out in fancy dress – it is up to you!  We would love to see your creations so please do send photos in on Class Dojo to the teachers when you are done.

Share a Story Live Event

We are delighted to celebrate this year with an extra special digital event!

You can watch the World Book Day special – Bringing Reading to Life LIVE on the World Book Day website at 10:30am. The event will last 30 minutes.
Starring: Joseph Coelho (the poet whom Maple class saw at Stroud Book Festival last year) & Fiona Lumbers, Tom Fletcher and Lydia Monks
Hosted by Nigel Clarke, TV presenter.   Just click on the link below to watch live at 10.30am.

The Masked Reader!

Watch the video clips below of our masked Whiteshill staff members reading a page from their favourite book. Can you guess who is behind each mask? I wonder if you can name any of the favourite books too?! You can send us your guesses over Class Dojo!

 

 

 

                                  How many did you guess?!

Share a story together…

Take ten minutes to share story with someone in your bubble. Look at the pictures together, guess what the characters are up to and predict what you think will happen next. Sharing stories boosts creativity and imaginationimproves wellbeing and is a positive experience for everyone!

Video books to enjoy together…

Visit the World Book Day website to watch the ‘Share a Story Corner videos’ where you will find familiar characters and easy to follow stories with tips for reading together.

https://www.worldbookday.com/share-a-story-corner/

You can also listen to a range of audiobooks here…

https://www.worldbookday.com/world-of-stories/

Create a bookmark

Cut out a rectangle shape from a piece of card. Add colour with pens, pencils, paint, glitter glue or sequins. Add a pompom, tassel or ribbon to the end.

Share the love – give a bookmark to your family and friends. Pass them out in the neighbourhood. They’re great to accompany any book gifts you’re giving. Or hide them in the pages of books in your local library next time you are able to visit!

Create a book nook

Of course you can read anywhere, but creating a special place to read shows just how wonderful books are.

It’s very simple to set up a book nook – all you really need is a place to sit and some books – but adding in some extra special touches can make a little reading den that you love to visit.  Perhaps you could decorate it with some posters of your favourite books?

Write a book of your own…

Click the links below for ideas…

Make a Zig Zag book.

Draw your own graphic novel.

Combine art and storytelling and make a miniature book or matchbox book.

Take the first line of your favourite tale and write your own ending.

Put yourself in a story with speech bubbles.

Guess who game…

This simple game is great for developing language, learning to take turns and following basic rules. You can play with just two players, or as many as you like. One person thinks of a character from a story book and the other players have to guess who they are by asking questions.  Try the game both ways: with you asking questions for them to answer (‘does this person fly on a broomstick?’) and also see if they can give clues. Giving clues is harder but great for considering how someone else might think.

Bring your favourite books to life with arts and crafts…

Make finger puppets or peg doll puppets of the characters from your favourite story. You may like to act out the story afterwards.

Make your own character masks and put on a show for your family.

Paint a character from one of your favourite stories.

Be creative…!

Clips, quizzes and activities…

Celebrate your favourite authors, stories and characters with the best clips, quizzes and activities from CBBC.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/curations/world-book-day

Ready, steady, cook….

Cook, bake or put together a dish inspired by a story!  You could make the ‘wormy spaghetti’ from The Twits, the porridge from Goldilocks and the Three Bears, a gingerbread man or a salad from Mr McGregor’s garden in Peter Rabbit!

Roald Dahl

The Roald Dahl website has lots of quizzes, videos, stories and activities for you to try!

https://www.roalddahl.com/world-book-day

You can also watch a theatrical reading of the Twits online here – performed at the Unicorn Theatre (probably more appropriate for the older children).

https://www.unicorntheatre.com/twits

Draw like Tom Gates…

Learn to draw like Tom Gates and lots more…

http://lizpichon.com/tomgatesmusic

Visit your favourite author’s website…

If you don’t like Roald Dahl or Tom Gates, why not look up the website of your favourite children’s author or book series – some of the websites have some fantastic facts, videos, games and activities on.  Older children could find out more about their favourite author…where do they come from?  How did they start writing?  What is their favourite book?!

We hope you have lots of fun today!!  We can’t wait to see what you get up to!

Music

Last week you created your own pulse of 8 beats, but added in a new note length which lasted for 2 beats! Today we will look at adding one new beat, and then finish by creating one new final pattern with a phrase to speak along with it!

To start with, I’d like you to just clap the pattern below:

 

1                          2                  3                       4                    5                  6                7              8

Clap                   Clap                 C        L       A     P               Clap          Clap           C       L     A   P

 

You will see it is the same phrase repeated, two claps followed by one clap which lasts for 2 beats.  Just practice this a couple of times.

Now we are going to add in what is called a REST. The rest means that no sound should be played on that beat. That beat is effectively SILENCE. So if you see the word rest under a beat, it is very important to make sure you do not make a sound on that beat! I will put an example below for you to have a go at:

1                2               3               4                 5               6               7               8

Clap       REST         Clap         Clap             Clap        REST          C      L    A     P

So with the above pattern, there are 2 rests on beats 2&6, so be careful to make sure you do NOT clap on those beats! Then the final clap lasts for TWO beats on beats 7&8. As usual, keep practicing this pattern until you feel confident and comfortable performing it at a steady speed.

OK! I’m sure you have guessed what to do next! Create your own 8 beat pattern! You can use whatever sounds you like (Clapping hands, Clicking fingers, Stamping  feet or Tapping Knees), however, you will need to include at least one rest, and one two beat sound!

Good work! Now to finish, we are going to make a longer 16 beat pattern! To do this you will take your 8 beat pattern you have just created, and repeat it to make 16 beats! It is important there is no gap between the repetition! It has to flow nicely so will need some practice! I will show my example below taking my 8 beat pattern and repeating it! To save room ‘C’ means clap and ‘R’ means rest!

1        2      3      4        5         6        7        8       9     10       11      12        13      14       15        16

C       R      C     C       C         R       C  L  A  P     C     R        C        C         C        R         C  L  A P

Take your time when looking at my example. When the word ‘CLAP’ is written out in full, that means the clap lasts 2 beats. If you would like to practice the example above first, then do, I have only used claps for my sounds as this makes it easier! Have a go at repeating your pattern so it is 16 beats long though and give that a go! If you seem to struggle, then break it down! Start with the first 4 beats, then 8 beats, then repeat the first 4 to make 12 beats, and finally try all 16 beats! It won’t happen first time, but that’s why practice is so important in music!

Forest School at Home:

This traditional game has been played for hundreds of years.

When you’re out in the woods, or in your garden if you have one, why not have a game of Aunt Sally.

You’ll need to find 6 throwing sticks, approximately 30 to 40cm long and 3 to 4cm diameter if possible – just use what you can find though. You will also need a small log, to act as Aunt Sally’s head – known as the dolly, and a log/post/box/low wall that can form a post for the dolly to sit on (about 75cm tall).

Play the game in an open space, so nothing can be damaged by flying sticks.  The dolly should be about 75cm above ground level.

Lay a long stick on the ground if you have one, or mark it another way, about 7 or 8m away from the dolly as a throwing line.  (Adjust the line closer for younger children).

Play three rounds.  Sticks must be thrown underarm and each player gets 6 throws per round.  The person who hits the dolly off the post the most times is the winner.

Have fun!

Whiteshill's Day of

Welcome to our very first day of wonder at Whiteshill!  Today is all about inspiring a sense of wonder, awe and curiosity about the world around us.  We want to enhance well-being by focusing on nature, getting outside and being creative.  We hope it will also give you chance to marvel at the amazing details of the natural planet, widening our ‘window on the world’ in the current lockdown situation.

Below are a range of activities that Mrs McKay, our wellbeing lead, has put together for you to have a go at today.  You can choose which ones you would like to do and how many – go with whatever inspires you!   If you want to take an activity in your own direction as well, go for it!  Just enjoy marveling in the wonder of the world around us!  We can’t wait to see what you have been up to – please do login to Dojo and send us some photos if you are able to.  Have fun!

Nature Scavenger Hunt

If you are able to go outside in the garden or for a walk, have a go at the nature scavenger hunt here.

Cloud Spotting

Can you see objects in the clouds? Wrap up warm, go outside and watch the clouds for 10 minutes. Can you make any pictures from the clouds? E.g. dolphin, face etc

Read some poems about clouds here:

I am riding on a cloud

Cloud_Poetry

Cloud poem

Perhaps you could write your own.

You could research different types of clouds and present your information as a poster or a Power Point.

I think to myself…what a wonderful world!

Take the Natural wonders of the World quiz here.  You might need to research the answers on the internet. You can then wow your family with the new information you have learnt.  The answers are here for when you need them.

Choose a natural wonder and find out more about it. This could be presented as a poster or Power Point or younger children could draw a picture or tell another member of their family about what they have learnt.

Northern Lights

Watch the time lapse video of The Northern Lights here.

What does it make you feel? Imagine standing in the dark and watching the light show. How might you feel?

Try writing a poem about this phenomenon.

You could use simile to compare what you have seen to something else e.g. The lights are like dancing ribbons.

Or you could try an acrostic poem or perhaps a Haiku. Here are some examples of Haiky and acrostic poems to inspire you:

Acrostic examples

Haiku Teaching Powerpoint

Haiku Rules Poster

Acrostic poems

Younger children could imagine that they are there in the cold watching the Northern lights and do some role play, thinking about what they are feeling as they watch it.  Perhaps if you have some black paper at home, you could create a chalk picture of the northern lights too.

Somewhere over the rainbow

Have you ever wondered how a rainbow is made?

Is there really a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow?

Is there such a thing as a moonbow?

Head to the met office website to find answers to these questions and find out about different types of rainbows. Who knew?!

https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/learn-about/weather/optical-effects/rainbows

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEl3G3Ky9Gs

You could present what you have learned as a leaflet, poster or Power Point.

Or you could draw a picture of write a poem about rainbows too if you like.  Maybe you could come up with your own rainbow art – get out all of your colours – pens, paints, chalks etc. and get creative!  Can you remember the colours of the rainbow in order?!

The lyrics to the song ‘somewhere over the rainbow’ are here if you want to try singing it together.

Below are some rainbow craft ideas that might inspire you – if you don’t have coloured paper at home, try looking in the recycling and using colourful junk mail instead!  The bead patterns could be made from anything colourful you have at home e.g. toy cars, beads, lego

Amazing Animals!

Head to the National Geographic Kids’ page and find out about some weird and wonderful animals!

Below is the worksheet for you to complete.  It is using your 4 x table knowledge.  Read carefully and complete.

Worksheet:4 x table lesson 1

Music

Before half term, you created your own new pulse! Today we are going to introduce a new note length for your pulse!

You ended last week by making an 8 beat pattern, with you explaining your favourite food, with the pulse underneath. To start this week, I’d like you to make a NEW 8 beat pulse, using any of the sounds given last week. As a reminder, those are : Clapping your hands, stamping your feet, tapping you knees, and clicking your fingers. For Example:

 

1                2                        3                4                5                 6                     7                8

Stamp       Stamp             Clap           Click            Tap              Tap                Clap          Clap

 

Once you have made your new pulse, practice it until you’re confident and can perform it with no gaps or hesitations, and keeping it at the same speed all the way throughout.

OK! Now we’re going to introduce a new note length! So far, all of your sounds for your pulse last for ONE beat each! Now we are going to add in a note length which will last for TWO beats! To show you as an example, I am going to copy the example above, but change the last sound to last for two beats:

 

1                   2                       3                      4                   5                    6                   7                8

Stamp        Stamp               Clap                Click              Tap                Tap               C     L      A    P

 

You will see that over beats 7&8, I have written the word Clap, but dragged it out to cover both beats! That means you still only clap ONCE, on beat 7, and then hold it until the end. You do NOT clap twice (otherwise you’re doing two notes of one beat each, not one note of two beats). This can be difficult so don’t worry if you do not get it straight away! First of all practice my example above, making sure you only clap ONCE on beat 7. The best way to ensure you get this right is to make sure you make SEVEN sounds, and not eight! Once you clap on beat 7, count 7+8 in your head and then once you’ve said 8, you can end the pulse.

Well Done! That was difficult! To end now, all I want you to do, is to take the pulse you created at the start of this lesson, and change the end of it to last for 2 beats like in my example! So whatever sound you had on beat 8, get rid of that sound, and then change the sound on beat 7 to last for two beats. Once you have done this, make sure you practice it again until you feel comfortable with it!

Well Done! Today’s work has been very tricky, but you have done really well! And this sets us up really nicely for next week!

Forces

We have already looked at air resistance, whilst making parachutes.  Hopefully, you found that a greater surface area created more resistance and slowed your parachute.  You may also have discovered that the resistance of the air has a greater effect on a lighter material.  Can you explain why this is the case in your own words?

Air resistance concerns objects being slowed by impacts with molecules in the air.  For this session I’d like you to study the resistance between solid objects.  This is called friction.

Press your hands together and rub them together fast – what can you feel?  What’s happening?

Friction can be used in everyday life to slow things down and sometimes objects are designed to have low friction (to allow sliding). Can you think of some examples?

Here is an experiment to try:

Lift the end of the plank up slowly until the car begins to roll down the slope (if you don’t have a car you can use anything that rolls).  Use the ruler to note how high you had to lift the plank to start it moving.  Now try this again after covering the plank smoothly with some different materials – for example tin foil, a scarf, sandpaper, bubble wrap etc.  Does this effect the height at which the car begins to move?  Is the surface creating more or less friction against the movement of the car, if you have to lift the plank higher?

You might like to run this experiment again using a heavier car – how does this effect your results?  Why do you think this happens?

As we are testing which surfaces produce the most/least friction, what things must we keep the same to ensure this is a fair test?

Today’s English lesson will be to edit your African Elephant fact file.

To do this you need to get a dictionary and check all your spelling and correct any mistakes.

You need to check and correct any punctuation.

Read your work through then read aloud to a family member to check it makes sense.  If there isn’t anyone available then you could record yourself reading it on the IPAD and play to them later on.  In the meantime read the fact file to your teddies etc.

Make sure you have included facts and it all makes sense.

Wednesday 10th February 2021

Today we are going to be learning all about keeping safe online.  It is really important to learn the skills we need so that we can make the most of the wonderful world of the Internet whilst staying safe!  For today’s home learning, we have got a selection of videos and presentations below for the children to engage with – you can choose how much or how little you want to do and pick the bits that you think the children will enjoy.  Please do not feel you have to do it all – it is just there to give you a range of ideas to choose from at a level you feel comfortable with for your children.  The important message threading through all of this work is that they should talk to a grown up if they see something they don’t like or are not sure about online.

Thinkuknow

We use the thinkuknow website in school to support the children with their understanding of staying safe online -you can visit the website here: https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/jessie-and-friends-videos/

There are three videos on this page aimed at younger children – ‘Watching videos’, ‘sharing pictures’ and ‘playing games’.   In school we love the ‘funny in your tummy’ song and it’s a great way of helping the children understand how important it is to share their worries.  Have a dance and sing around to it together!  Believe me…it will definitely stick in your head!!

There is also a storybook version of the videos at the bottom of the webpage if you would prefer.

There is also another area of the website aimed at 8 – 10 year olds which may be more relevant for your child – it all depends on how much they use the internet at home – it is up to you which you decide they watch.  This part of the website also has a game called ‘Band Runner’ which they can play.

https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/8_10/watch/

If you are not able to do this with the children today, we would suggest they stick to the younger videos.

Detective Digiduck

There are two Detective Digiduck stories that the children can read (they are aimed at younger children so may be more appropriate for the year 3 children).  The first one below is about how not everything we read on the internet is true – it is a theme that they will come back to as they progress through school and this story introduces them to the idea.  You have to scroll right down to the bottom of the page to find the storybook:

https://www.childnet.com/resources/digiduck-stories/detective-digiduck

This second Detective Digiduck story introduces the children to the fact that we don’t always know who we are talking to online in a very child friendly way – again, this is something they will come back to as they get older, but it is an important concept that they can begin to understand through stories.  Again, scroll to the bottom of the page for the story:

https://www.childnet.com/resources/digiduck-stories/digiducks-famous-friend

Suggested activities for when you have finished reading the stories together:

  • Draw an animal and think of some facts that you know about that animal that are definitely true because you have seen them for yourself e.g. a sheep is covered in wool.  Then, see if you can search online for some more facts about that animal – which ones do you think are true?  Which ones might be true?  Which ones are you not sure about?  Top Tip – if you put ‘for kids’ at the end of your search the websites are likely to be more child friendly e.g. sheep facts for kids.
  • You be the detective – ask someone in your family some questions – what can you find out about them?  How old are they?  What is their favourite food?  Maybe you could draw a picture of them and write some facts that you have learnt.
Interland!

At this link: https://beinternetawesome.withgoogle.com/en_us/interland the children can play a fantastic online game from Google which is themed around being internet awesome!!

In The Net

Each Gloucestershire county council put on a play called ‘In the Net’ which is all about staying safe online.  This is something which is offered to all school’s in Gloucestershire and which we have done in the past.  Of course this has not been possible at the moment and so Gloucestershire LEA have instead provided an online version of the play for the children to watch at home.  It can be found here:

In the Net Audio Gloucs

E-safety Activities

Finally, there is a presentation here which covers a range of internet skills and knowledge including:

  • What Is Cyberbullying?
  • To Buy Or Not To Buy?
  • Keep It To Yourself
  • Emailing
  • Online Communication
  • Protect Yourself

 

You can pick and choose which bits you would like to do with the children – you do not need to do it all.

Here are the activity sheets that go alongside it:

Activity 1

Activity 2

Activity 3

Y3 Word Search

 

There is a more complex presentation here which you might like to pick some bits from – have a look through it first though to see if you think it is relevant to your children (it is aimed at year 4 upwards):

  • Cyberbullying
  • Super Searchers
  • Copycats
  • Too Much Information?
  • The Online Community

Here are the activity sheets which go with this one:

Activity 1

Activity 2

worksheet- 3 x table worksheet

Music

Last week we created a new pulse! Today we will keep practicing that, but also you will create your own!

 

We ended the last lesson by making an 8 beat pattern, with you explaining your favourite place, with the pulse underneath. The example was this:

 

1                2                        3                4                5              6                          7                   8

My            Favour-ite         Place-is      Spain           It             seems-to           Nev-er          Rain

 

Just spend a few minutes recapping this example, making sure you keep the pulse by stomping your feet on beats 1&2 (5&6) and clapping your hands on beats 3&4 (7&8).

Good! Ok, now you are going to keep the same phrase, but you are going to change the pulse to one you will make up! There are four sounds you can use: Clapping your hands, Stomping your feet, Tapping your knees and (if you can) clicking. You are going to use these sounds to create an 8 beat pulse! Here is an example (but do not copy it, you need to make your own up):

 

1                   2                       3                      4                   5                     6                   7                8

Stamp        Stamp               Tap                 Tap                Clap               Stamp          Clap          Click

This may take a while to do, and it may help to write it down, but once you have made your pulse, practise it until you feel confident and you can perform it at a steady and consistent pace.

Fantastic! Now to end, I want you to make up a phrase to say with your new pulse you have made up! This time, I would like you to make your phrase about your favourite food! As normal I will put my example here below:

 

1                2                     3                4                    5              6                 7                   8

My            Favour-ite      Food-is      Piz-za            There         are            Lots-of         Types

Again this can be tricky, and it may take you a few goes to get it, but once you have it will sound fabulous! You will see I have got 4 beats where there are two words or syllables underneath (beats 2,3,4&7). Remember if you have 2 words or syllables to a beat, that does not mean you speed up and rush, it is important to still keep at a steady pace, and that is what your pulse does! So if you find it difficult, practice your pulse again first, then add your phrases!

So if you find it difficult, practice your pulse again first, then add your phrases!
