Spellings – double the last letter of words ending in a short vowel followed by a single consonant, before adding a ‘y’ (like fog=foggy, fun=funny). Try these words, and put into sentences:
Run, wool, fur, mud, skin, bad
English – today is about exclamation marks. An exclamation sentence beginnings with either ‘What’ or ‘How’ and ends with a ! Can you write some of your own exclamation sentences? Can you find any in your reading books?
Maths – today visit Purple Mash – maths – topics – geometry/shape – activities/position and direction – 2Go. Can you move the objects around the pathways by using the correct left, right, forwards, backwards commands? There are many different backgrounds to explore, or you can make your own. If you save your work in the Maple folder then I can have a look too!
Theme – this week you will be in charge of your own learning about Japan. Below are some suggestions, but feel free to come up with your own ideas:
- Did you write some questions about things you wanted to know about Japan in week 1? Have you answered them? If not, complete some research to find out.
- Research what animals are native to Japan. Have you seen any of them before? Draw and label some pictures.
- Make a presentation of everything you’ve learnt about Japan. It could be in the form of a poster, leaflet or you could tell someone else all you know. Maybe write a letter to a friend or family member to tell them, or make a call, FaceTime, Skype.
- Karaoke originated in Japan – why not hold a karaoke party with your family and sing along to your favourite songs.
- Write your own quiz about Japan.
- Compare living in Japan to living in England. What would be the same? What would be different?
- Would you like to visit Japan. Tell someone else why or why not?
- Look at some of the other classes previous suggested activities on Japan – is there a craft activity you would like to try?
I can’t wait to see how you round up your research and learning on Japan. Please email me or post on the Maple class facebook posts with what you’ve been up to.
Thank you, Mrs Keeler.
