Week 17 w/b 13.7.20 or XIII/VII/XX

Welcome to the last week of term. I can't quite believe that this is the last week and soon we will be starting the Summer holidays.

I have put some learning on for this week and later on this week I will post some Summer learning for the holidays if you want to do it. 

So enjoy the last week of being a giraffe. 

 

English 

Writing Traditional Stories from a Different Point of View.  We are going to think about writing a traditional story that you know from an alternative point of view.  Listen to the story of the Three Little Pigs here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oanczCDuSrk.  Could you write the story from the point of view of the wolf?  He is hungry and is desperate for a meal.  How cross do those pesky pigs make him?

If you want to choose a different story, do.  For example, you could write "Cinderella" from the point of view of one of the ugly sisters,

OR Write "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" from the point of view of the troll,

OR Write "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" from the point of view of Goldilocks.  Use your imagination and choose any book you have at home or know well.

 

There are more stories read aloud here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episodes/b00jdlm2/cbeebies-bedtime-stories

Geography

Can you remember the names of all the continents and the seas and oceans?

Watch some of these bitesize clips to remind you. Click on the world!

 

History

Watch some of the clips of significant people in history - click on the picture below. Some you may have heard of already. Write a short information piece about why they were significant or important people. Think about whether they lived before or after Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.

Week 16 w/b 6.7.20 or VI/VII/XX

Can you believe it you have only 2 more weeks of being a giraffe? I am feeling a little sad that you will soon be moving to Year 3 and I will no longer be your teacher. However, the most important thing is that you are all safe and well and hopefully doing lots of work to keep your learning levels up. 

Let's look at multiplication and arrays this week.

English

Firstly, a reading comprehension.  Marcus Rashford has made the news, as he won his campaign for the government to provide free school meals for children entitled to them throughout the summer holiday. 

Read this and answer the questions to learn a bit more about him (there are 3 levels, choose the one appropriate to your child).

 

Now a creative writing task.  Watch this video and think about the happy accident, which makes the boy and his Granddad realise their invention has been made even better.  Can you describe the story in words, or create a story with your own invention.  Perhaps something will go wrong with your invention too.

 

 

Mindfulness

There are some lovely activities here for you to try at home with your child or children.

 

 

Music

Week 15 w/b 29.6.20 or IXXX.VI.XX

Hello everyone....where has the sun gone?

I hope you are all well, looking after each other and being good!

Welcome to ANDREW MAKARKUS who is a new boy joining Giraffe Class. 

Andrew if your parent/carer would like to send me a picture/fact file about yourself I will put it on this website. My email is sarah@baring.lewisham.sch.uk 

 

Let's start the day off with  Tooty Ta and Allouette gentille Allouette.

Have a good week.

 

Maths

Try some of these challenges. They are open ended that means they may have more than 1 answer. Some will need you to try a few times before you get the right answer. We call this trial and error.

English

Right, back to creative writing again this week.

 

 

You can use some of the ideas from the site, such as describing the creature that comes out of the well, or writing in role as the girl.  Or you could get creative and make up your own story about discovering a mysterious creature somewhere.  Maybe in the park, or in your wardrobe?  Is it friendly or scary?  Let your imagination run wild.

 

Art/Science

Our topic this half-term is Green Fingers.  I would like you to get creative.  Can you design your dream garden or dream park that would have everything in it that you would like.  Think about things that you can play on, but also about the environment.  Could you build a treehouse or adventure playground amongst the trees?  Would you like to grow some fruit trees, so you can have cherries and apples every year?  Or would you plant some vegetables to feed your family?  Perhaps you would like a lovely patch of flowers, something that smells beautiful, like lavender, or looks beautiful like roses?  Get researching and let your imagination run wild!

Week 14 w/b 22.06.20 or XXII.VI.XX

A message from Gill and her family.

Dear Children 

Thank you so much for your lovely book, with all the wishes for Harry. 

Mark, Izzy and I really enjoyed reading them, and we will keep it safe, so Harry can read it when he is older. 

We wish that you are all happy and healthy, and looking after each other, and your family. 

We are very sad we couldn’t come into school anymore, but we will come and see you again, when you are in year 3.  

Love Gill, Harry, Izzy and Mark

For your English this week we are going back the Literacy Shed to be inspired by one of the films:

Could you write a story about an amazing adventure you want to go on, or could imagine someone else going on.  Would you go to space?  Across the sea?  Underground.  Be inspired, get writing and let me know how you get on.

 

Science

Our next step in our science is learning about the life cycle of a plant.

Week 12 w/b 08.06.20 or VIII.VI.XX

Hello Giraffes and families,

I hope you are all keeping well and coping with the rainy and colder weather. 

Thank you for the wishes for Harry I have passed them on to Sue.

A great suggestions from a Giraffe mum is to do little projects. 

I have added some 'topics' you might like to look at. They have a power-point and some information. You could choose your own topic and look up some facts for yourself.

Remember our non-fiction books on dinosaurs and our biographies on Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole?

You could use some of the features you learnt about to make your own information book or biography.

Information books - a title, contents page, an introduction, diagrams with labels, captions, facts, fun facts, glossary, blurb, headings and sub headings.

Biography - a title, pictures, photos, introduction, headings, sub-headings, facts in time order so starting with 'early life'.

 

To start with I have included 2 artists

Van Gogh -     and paintings.

Wassily Kandinsky    and Powerpoint

or how about 

Flags       and  

or

Pioneering people (pioneering means a person or organisation that is the first to do something).

Elizabeth Fry  

 

Emmeline Pankhurst and Emily Davison

Can you write some instructions for how to grow a plant.  You can include pictures or diagrams and could include numbering or bullet points.  Think about when we wrote our recipes for Mama Panya's pancakes, what did you include?  There was a list of things you needed, then the step-by-step guide for how to do it.

 

Here is a reading comprehension about a park-keeper, called Liam.  Click on the image to read about his job and answer the questions here:

Following on from last week, this week, look at the parts of a plant, here.

Week 11 w/b 01.06.20 or I.VI.XX

Welcome back from half-term, I hope you have all had a good break during half-term and were able to enjoy the sunshine.  Hopefully you are being good at home and helping out with tidying up and things like that.  This is a great chance to practise your cooking skills or try new foods that you haven't had before.

Our new topic this half-term is 'Green Fingers.'  If you are lucky enough to have an outside space, then use that, or try growing something on your windowsill and get growing some things: sunflowers are always great fun (http://kidsinthegarden.co.uk/plants-for-kids/how-to-grow-your-own-sunflowers-with-your-kids/), or some vegetables, such as tomato plants are quite easy to do (https://playofthewild.com/2020/02/02/growing-tomatoes-with-children/).  Cress can be grown really easily in a small space, such as an egg shell or a yoghurt pot - https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/makes/mr-blooms-nursery-cressheads.

 

Thank you to Henry for his picture of Little Miss Angry. That should make a great story.

 

Thank you to Raul for his pictures....lovely rainbow.

English

Here is a reading comprehension about sunflowers.  There are 3 different ones, which get progressively harder, so choose the one most appropriate for your child.

News from Gill (and Harry):

Dear children

I hope you are all, staying safe and healthy. 

Harry misses you very much. He has started crawling now, he likes to try and get to the stairs, to climb them. He also has two teeth at the front, I have tried to get a picture for you, but they are very tiny as the moment. He also shakes his head to say no, when he doesn’t want something.  
He likes having his sister and his daddy at home, as he gets to play with them a lot more, now they are not at school and work. 

 Please take care of yourselves, and work hard at your homework. Harry and I will see you as soon as it is possible. 

 Love Gill and Harry

 Week 7   w/b 4.5.20  or IV/V/XX

ENJOY THE SUN AND HAPPY BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND. REMEMBER TO STAY SAFE.

Hello Giraffes,

I hope you are well and helping out as much as you can at home.

Can you believe we are now 7 weeks into lockdown!!

I hear you are all doing very well with exercising, helping out at home and staying safe.

Just a reminder: to read for at least 20 minutes every day, watch Newsround (link below) and practise your times tables (use the multiplication square) - you can write them out, chant them, rap them or ask an adult to quiz you....what is 3 x 5? 2 x 6? etc..By the end of year 2 you should know your 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times table.

If you can it is really important to get outside and do some exercise every day to keep your body and mind healthy. Can you walk/run a mile every day or skip for 5 minutes or dance to 3 of your favourite songs daily?

 

So week 7.....

Thank you to Alexia for the lovely photos of her lockdown.

      

 

Maths   this week is all about money. So, it’s time to raid the piggy bank and use real coins in your learning….if you can.

Monday - Wednesday click on the link.   

Also the poem 'The owl and the pussy cat'. I know Owls have probably learnt this but now it's Giraffe's turn. Try and add actions as well.  

Thursday maths lesson VII/V/XX or 7.5.20

Here are some excellent interactive maths games to play on the Nrich website, which take a bit of getting used to, but are fun to play: https://nrich.maths.org/14582

Do you have a skipping rope? Yes well how about doing some skipping. 

 

English/History

This week I would like you to think about the order of events in the Great Fire of London.  You can use this PowerPoint to help you.  Can you create your own storyboard of the Great Fire of London, starting with the outbreak of the fire in the bakery.

You can also listen to this on BBC School Radio.  Listen to the stories and the song and see if you can learn the song.

 

Week 6   w/b 27.4.20  or XXVII/IV/XX

Welcome to week 6 of lock-down from school. I hope you are all well and enjoying the sun, if you can. Don’t forget to put sunscreen on.

History

Here is a link to learn about some of the key people involved in the story of the Great Fire of London.  Read about Thomas Farriner and think up some questions that you would like to ask him, for example, about how the fire started, what he did next and how he felt about it.  You could ask someone in your house to ask you the questions and put yourself in the 'hotseat,' to answer the questions as if you are Thomas Farriner (could you dress up like him?  Send me some photos and I can put them on the class page).

 

 

Week 5 w/b 20/4/20 or XX.IV.XX

Hello Giraffes and your families. Welcome back to the Summer Term.

I hope you have all had a safe and relaxing Easter. 

I have allocated more games on Abacus please have a go at the activities. 

I received this picture of Harry having fun with his sister in their Easter crowns. Hasn't he grown!

 

Our topic for this half-term is the Great Fire of London.  Sadly, we cannot visit the wonderful Museum of London displays on the Great Fire, but you can see some of the things on display there on the slideshow here: https://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/museum-london/permanent-galleries/war-plague-fire

The Museum of London has also produced this excellent interactive story, which the children should enjoy and will help them to learn what happened: http://www.fireoflondon.org.uk/game/

 

There is a really good introduction to the Great Fire on this Magic Grandad video (the children should remember the Magic Grandad from our Florence Nightingale learning!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VarSSAwiimU

 

The children can use these images of London before the Great Fire of London to describe the houses and how the city was built.

 

 Maths : Monday XX.IV.XX

Before Easter we were learning about multiplication. Today we are looking at arrays. 

Key vocabulary.....multiplication; equals; times; product; array; altogether; column; row.

Look at this page to see how arrays are written in number sentences.

Now draw arrays for these number sentences....

4 rows of 6 or 4 x  6 = ?   5 rows of 9 or 5 x 9 =

7 rows of 2, 3 rows of 9, 5 rows of 5, 2 rows of 10 8 rows of 6.

Now go back and switch the numbers to draw the new array and you should get the same number. Example 4 rows of 2 = 8 then draw 2 rows of 4 = 8. 

Did they all have different arrays? What about 5 rows of 5?

Tuesday XXI. IV. XX

Practise telling the analogue and digital time on this link. 

Understand units of time: minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years

Key vocab: minute; hour; day; week; month; year; quarter; half; day; night; o'clock; calendar

Look at the August 2019 calendar month. Print or copy it out if you can. Write all the events from here onto the calendar and then answer these questions.  If help is needed guide your child to understand what each question means and do some of them as examples for them.

Wednesday XXII.IV.XX

To understand how long a minute is? 

What is a minute : 60 seconds.

Can you count down with a minute timer or use the second hands on the clock. 

What can you do in a minute? Use the counter to :

  • how many times you can write your name/

  • how far can you say your numbers?

  • how far can you write your numbers?

  • how many press-ups can you do in 60 seconds?

  • how many star jumps can you do in a minute?

  • What else can you try to do in a minute....Make an aeroplane or a chatterbox?

 

Key questions: How many minutes in an hour? In a quarter of an hour? In three quarters of an hour?

  • How many seconds in a minute?

 April 22nd Stephen Lawrence Day

What can we learn from Stephen Lawrence's Life?...Answer to LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE. I know at the moment that is hard but we can all try our best and make the right choices.

Week 1 w/b 23.3.20 or XXIII/III/XX

This week I would like you to look at Homes through History. Read all the slides on this link and then choose 2 homes to draw and find out/write about. You could also compare your home to a home from history, such as a Tudor house. What is the same and what is different? 

Maths This week practise doubling numbers to 30 or 50 or further, by partitioning the number, double both numbers and then recombine (put back together). e.g. 

Also halve even numbers in a similar way by partitioning the number, halve each number then recombine. e.g.

 

 

English - Have a go at this comprehension about the story - The Bear Who Came to Babysit. Read it on your own if you can or ask an adult to help you.

Spellings for this week are attached here:

 

History

Here is a link to learn about some of the key people involved in the story of the Great Fire of London.  Read about Thomas Farriner and think up some questions that you would like to ask him, for example, about how the fire started, what he did next and how he felt about it.  You could ask someone in your house to ask you the questions and put yourself in the 'hotseat,' to answer the questions as if you are Thomas Farriner (could you dress up like him?  Send me some photos and I can put them on the class page).

 

 

Week 5 w/b 20/4/20 or XX.IV.XX

Hello Giraffes and your families. Welcome back to the Summer Term.

I hope you have all had a safe and relaxing Easter. 

I have allocated more games on Abacus please have a go at the activities. 

I received this picture of Harry having fun with his sister in their Easter crowns. Hasn't he grown!

 

Our topic for this half-term is the Great Fire of London.  Sadly, we cannot visit the wonderful Museum of London displays on the Great Fire, but you can see some of the things on display there on the slideshow here: https://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/museum-london/permanent-galleries/war-plague-fire

The Museum of London has also produced this excellent interactive story, which the children should enjoy and will help them to learn what happened: http://www.fireoflondon.org.uk/game/

 

There is a really good introduction to the Great Fire on this Magic Grandad video (the children should remember the Magic Grandad from our Florence Nightingale learning!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VarSSAwiimU

 

The children can use these images of London before the Great Fire of London to describe the houses and how the city was built.

 

 Maths : Monday XX.IV.XX

Before Easter we were learning about multiplication. Today we are looking at arrays. 

Key vocabulary.....multiplication; equals; times; product; array; altogether; column; row.

Look at this page to see how arrays are written in number sentences.

Now draw arrays for these number sentences....

4 rows of 6 or 4 x  6 = ?   5 rows of 9 or 5 x 9 =

7 rows of 2, 3 rows of 9, 5 rows of 5, 2 rows of 10 8 rows of 6.

Now go back and switch the numbers to draw the new array and you should get the same number. Example 4 rows of 2 = 8 then draw 2 rows of 4 = 8. 

Did they all have different arrays? What about 5 rows of 5?

Tuesday XXI. IV. XX

Practise telling the analogue and digital time on this link. 

Understand units of time: minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years

Key vocab: minute; hour; day; week; month; year; quarter; half; day; night; o'clock; calendar

Look at the August 2019 calendar month. Print or copy it out if you can. Write all the events from here onto the calendar and then answer these questions.  If help is needed guide your child to understand what each question means and do some of them as examples for them.

Wednesday XXII.IV.XX

To understand how long a minute is? 

What is a minute : 60 seconds.

Can you count down with a minute timer or use the second hands on the clock. 

What can you do in a minute? Use the counter to :

  • how many times you can write your name/

  • how far can you say your numbers?

  • how far can you write your numbers?

  • how many press-ups can you do in 60 seconds?

  • how many star jumps can you do in a minute?

  • What else can you try to do in a minute....Make an aeroplane or a chatterbox?

 

Key questions: How many minutes in an hour? In a quarter of an hour? In three quarters of an hour?

  • How many seconds in a minute?

Weds: Fill in the sheet attached using the 'x' sign as times, multiply, sets of, groups of etc.... You can use the 3 kangaroos sheet from yesterday to help you. 

Thurs :To investigate multiplication with the same answer. 

 We know that 6 x 2p = 12p and 5 x 5p = 60p Tru the other coins to buy each fruit.

     How about is the answer is the same = 20p

Use the coins to make 3 different multiplication sentences.

Now try 40p. What do you notice?

Fri: To count in 2s, 5s and 10s to solve multiplication problems

Work on these 2 problems with an adult. Remember to draw a picture if it will help.
