Well Being Wednesday from Mrs Viner

Well-being Wednesday
Hi 👋🏼 everyone!
Hope you had a fun half term 😊
This week I would like you to write some daily affirmations that are personal to you.
Affirmations are simple, positive statements declaring specific goals that can be used to encourage and motivate you.
You could write them on a poster or turn them into a song!
Here are mine to get you started.
I am grateful for my family 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦
My friends like me for who I am 💞
My thoughts and feelings matter 👍🏼
I don’t need to put to much pressure on myself 🙂
I’m not perfect, but that’s ok 👌
If you’d like to send me your ideas to Viner.l@ruyton.shropshire.sch.uk I’d love to see them 😍
Take care 🌈

Rabbits – Home learning for 3rd June

Good morning Rabbits

It has been a great start to the week and I hope you are all back into the swing of things at home; mixing a bit of work with a lot of fun!

Handwriting – Please can you write out the spelling words for this week but I would like you to do this in a volcano shape.  I suggest that you draw the outline of the volcano on a piece of paper and then add the words to fill the shape of the volcano.

Reading:  I have two different reading tasks for you today – year 2 and year 3 but the year 3 task is quite advanced.  Good luck!

Year 2 Comprehension June 3rd

Year 3 (advanced) comprehension June 3rd

English:  please follow the BBC Bitesize for today.

Maths:  please work on the correct year group activity today:

Y3 Lesson 3 – Fractions of a set of objects (1) 2019

Y3 Lesson 3 Answers – Fractions of a set of objects (1) 2019


Project:  Today, I have set a more time-consuming challenge which should take you two days.  I hope that you have enjoyed learning a little about volcanoes.  You will have learned about the various vocabulary that is used, and also made a diagram about the Earth’s insides.  Today, I would like you to get crafty again.  Your challenge is to make an animation of a volcanic explosion.  You can use either drawings, models or pictures but you have to find a way to sequence the images so that they look like an explosion happening.

Drawing Animation:  we once made a zeotrope in class – a sequence of drawings that were slightly different each time but when you looked at them quickly, they appeared to be moving.  Here is a short clip that shows you how to create an animation using sketches.  I don’t think you need to see the whole thing – you will remember about drawing each picture slightly different –

Picture animation:  you can use pictures in a sequence, if you are able to find a series of still photos of a volcano eruption, you can sequence them and do the same action of flipping the pages to show the movement.

Model animation:  This is a bit more time consuming and tricky – but I think it is also a lot more fun and a wonderful challenge.  If you can model a volcano from clay, playdough or other modelling material, you can make the animation using a phone camera.  You need to take each picture then move the model a small amount. You can use different coloured clay or play dough for the lava flow and make it drip down the side of the volcano slowly.  See what wonders you can create!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Rabbits – Home learning from 2nd June

Good Morning Rabbits

I hope you are all well and excited about learning today. I am so sorry to those who were unable to open some of the documents.  I have attached the word search to the spellings page for today.

Warm up – here is a crossword puzzle for you – but you have to complete it yourself!  Volcanos Crossword Puzzle  You will need to look at the vocabulary that I have also provided to work out the answers!

Lava  Plume  Crater  Magma  Volcanic Fissure

English:  Please see the BBC Bitesize lesson for today and the Education City grammar activity.

Maths:  Please select today’s lesson (lesson 2) for your year group.

Project:  To continue with Volcanoes, I have included some more information on how a volcano is formed.  Take a look at the powerpoint.  6. Structure of a volcano

Can you now do one of your amazing cartoon-strips for me?  I would like 8 squares each showing the sequence of the volcano’s eruption.  You can use vibrant colours and you need to explain in one sentence, what is happening in each of the pictures.  Remember this is an ACTIVE VOLCANO as it is exploding right now!  You could give your volcano a name – something that sounds exciting or from a distant place.

For your reading – I have included  a legend of a volcano – they are all around the earth and these legends that I will give you to read each day will show you where on earth they have appeared over the centuries:

Rabbits – Home learning for 1st June

Good Morning Rabbits and I hope that you all had a lovely half term.

I have put together some tasks for you today which will link in with the rest of the work through the week.  I hope you find it interesting!

Warm Up and Spelling Words:  I have included this wordsearch – please can you solve the puzzle and then write out the words three times for handwriting and spelling practice.

Engish:  BBC Bitesize lesson for today on www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize

Maths: White Rose maths for today:

Grammar:  I have loaded a few activities onto Education City that will support you with some grammar learning this week – work through the tasks doing one each day.

Project:  I would like you to learn all about Volcanoes this week.  I have selected a few fun things to do that will get you used to the vocabulary such as the wordsearch at the start of today.  Here is a lovely little cartoon clip featuring two volcanoes – you may have seen this already:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh4dTLJ9q9o

The next powerpoint shows you how the earth’s crust is made up of different types of rock and materials.  A Slice Through The Earth

Please can you make your own version of a slice of the Earth?  You could draw it – or perhaps make it from play-dough or some other materials.  See what you can find in your garden – you have probably got rocks there – imagine that they are actually tiny bits of the earth’s crust!

A Volcano erupts due to the pressure from the heat of the Earth.  Can you imagine how hot it needs to be to explode like that?  Have you ever seen popcorn exploding?  That is the same type of thing – the heat from the pan, heats the inside core of the corn grain and the steam bursts the corn apart.

There are many legends surrounding volcanoes and for your reading task to finish off the work for today, I have set this story for you. Volcano Reading Activity

Have a super day
