Good morning Rabbits.
Well today is the last learning day of the week as tomorrow is VE Day and a bank holiday. I have found a few different activities to suggest for you today and they might just be something you can do over the weekend as they are fun too.
Cloudbusting: The Met Office have sent over some suggestions for watching the weather. This one is for looking at clouds – I am sure you have noticed them before so how interesting to learn a little bit more about them. The website is www.metoffice.gov.uk. I have then clicked on links to weather and climate – DIY activities and cloud spotting (if the link below does not get you straight there.
English: Please see the daily activity from BBC Bitesize for today. Also there are some ‘rainy day’ grammar games still set for you on Education City.
Maths: White Rose Hub offer a good activity today, please tune into that. Please take the TT Rock Stars challenge too. I have also attached this file of different maths problems and puzzles – I suggest you scroll through and see one that you like then work through the problem. They are real brain-teasers!
Reading: Year 2: Take a look at this story which is written for your age group by Carol Moore. It is called “It could happen!” http://www.magickeys.com/books/happen/index.html
The illustrations are rather beautiful but I wonder if you could all do a great drawing of your surroundings – the village or town where you are at the moment, the walks that you go on – and colour it all one colour – like in the story. See if you could then re-colour it a different colour – what would it be like to have only one colour outside?
Year 3: I have chosen for you “The Master Artist” also written by Carol Moore. It is a short story but there are some words in green – if you click on these, you will be taken to another page of explanations and background information. At the end, you can test your knowledge with a quiz. http://www.magickeys.com/books/artist/index.html
Spelling Test: I suppose you thought that I had forgotten? So for a test – I have included a page of spellings – I need you to highlight or circle the correct spelling of each word. There are 3 spellings for each – two are incorrect – see if you can spot them. Good luck!
Have a lovely day tomorrow.
