Acorn Class

FRIDAY 3rd APRIL 2020

Happy Friday to my wonderful class! You have been amazing over the last two weeks, well done.  Look at the fabulous Easter egg designs I have received.

Don’t forget to keep active throughout the day. A good way to do this is by accessing GoNoodle or joining in with Joe Wicks every morning at 9am.

All the teachers in our school are making a weekly phone call home to the children in their class to have a chat and find out how they are doing and I would like to do the same too.  Unfortunately, I am not currently able to access our school site as I need to work but from home.  As a result, I do not have access to any contact details for you.  Parents – if possible, please can you email me a contact number on which you are happy for me to contact you / your child to be able to have a chat and see how your child is doing.  Please send the details to our Acorn Class email address…

FRIDAY 27th MARCH 2020

Happy Friday to my wonderful class! I am so overwhelmed with all the wonderful work I have received this week; you really are super stars!

Don’t forget to keep active throughout the day. A good way to do this is by accessing GoNoodle or joining in with Joe Wicks every morning at 9am. I have had great fun doing this!

English: LO: to create a persuasive advertisement

After all the hard work you have done this week, you are now persuasive experts. Your task today is to create an information poster/ advert to advertise the toothpaste you have designed. You will need to add lots of information to persuade people to buy it. Use the persuasive language and ideas from your plan.

(The answers will be available on this page on Monday).

Now tell me two things that the data on this table shows you.

For example: the table shows me that the temperature was warmer in March than it was in January. 

Red, Blue and Green: after you have told me two things the data shows, create one question that you could ask somebody about the data.

Purple and Yellow: after you have told me two things the data shows, create two questions you could ask somebody about the data.

Reading: choose your favourite book and read it aloud to somebody at home. Think about your expression and remember to take note of punctuation. You could ask the person you have read to, to write a comment in your reading record to describe how you read.

SPaG: Spelling test!

Get somebody at home to test you on this week’s spellings. Complete this in your English book and record your score. Good luck!

RE: Read all the following information to help you gain a better understanding of the importance of Jesus’ crucifixion in the Christian faith.

The Cross

The Jewish leaders wanted to find Jesus guilty at his trial but found it hard to actually find anything he was guilty of. They asked him if he was the Son of God and Jesus replied, “I am”. The Jewish leaders said this was an insult to God so they took him to Pontius Pilate (the Roman Governor).

The chief priests convinced the people that Jesus should die, so when Pontius Pilate asked them what he should do with Jesus they shouted, “Crucify him”. Pilate asked the crowd why and what Jesus had done but they just kept on shouting, “crucify him”.

The soldiers placed a crown of thorns on Jesus’ head and laid a heavy wooden cross on his back. Jesus had to carry the cross himself up a hill out of the city gates.

  • On the top of the hill, Jesus was put on the cross and nails were put through his hands and feet. The cross was raised up.
  • Jesus was next to two robbers. One of the robbers was very scared. Jesus spoke to him and comforted him.
  • Jesus’ crucifixion was very significant as it wasn’t an ordinary punishment and was mainly used to scare others from committing the same crime.

Resurrection

After Jesus had died, his friends and his mother took him down from the cross and laid him in a tomb. They rolled a huge stone in front of the entrance to the tomb.  Two days later, one of Jesus’ friends (Mary Magdalene) went to the tomb and found the stone had been moved and the tomb was empty.  Mary was weeping when a man came and asked Mary what was wrong. She replied that her Lord had been taken away. Mary asked the man if she knew where Jesus’ body had been taken (she thought the man was the gardener). The man replied “Mary it is I”. Mary was so happy. Jesus told Mary to tell all her friends that she had seen him and that he would soon be with his Father in heaven. Mary ran back and told all her friends.

Now think about the following questions: Why do you think the resurrection is such an important part of the Easter story?  Why do you think Christians feel it is so important that the cross and the resurrection are together?

I would now like you to create a craft cross using bright colours to reflect the crucifixion and resurrection together.

Red and Green: create your own paper cross to display the joy of the resurrection using bright colours within a cross template.

Blue, Yellow and Purple: create your own stained glass cross to display the resurrection alongside the cross.

 

HAVE A FANTASTIC WEEKEND!

Reading: log on to reading cloud and complete a book review.

SPaG: LO: to create noun phrases

Look at the image above. What can you see? Describe the image using noun phrases. Remember a noun phrase describes a noun. Why not challenge yourself and create an expanded noun phrase?  To expand a noun phrase you could add the conjunctions ‘with’ or ‘that’.

Here is an example:

    • The illuminating sun that reflects upon the calm sea’s surface.

Science: LO: to research tooth decay

In science, I would like you to research tooth decay. Using a computer or books, research the following questions about tooth decay:

– What causes tooth decay?

– Can you stop teeth from decaying?

– Is tooth decay hereditary?

– Do certain foods cause tooth decay?

-Do certain drinks cause tooth decay?

– What reduces the risk of tooth decay? How can you prevent it?

Record your findings and then create an information poster all about tooth decay. Your poster needs to inform people of the causes and the risks of tooth decay. It also needs to teach people how they can prevent tooth decay.

Monday 23rd March 2020

Here are the learning activities I would like you to complete today:

  • Maths – by the end of today you need to have logged onto Time Table Rock Stars and spent 15 minutes practising your times tables. See if you can beat your quickest time.
  • English – have a go at designing your very own toothpaste! You will be persuading people to buy your toothpaste later on the week. Draw your toothpaste, name it (make sure this catchy) and label the features of the toothpaste. For example, your toothpaste might have a stripe of yellow fluoride, which is designed to fight tooth decay. Create some alliteration and a noun phrase for your toothpaste.
  • Guided reading – spend 15 minutes reading your school book or a book at home. Whilst reading, collect any words that describe how a character feels or what a character is thinking. After this, complete a role on the wall for your character. Remember that thoughts go on the inside and feelings go on the outside.
  • SPAG- put 3 of the following pronouns into a sentence:
              • you
              • my
              • theirs
              • his
              • them
              • me
              • her
              • your

Make sure your sentence makes sense and focus on correct spelling and punctuation.

  • Theme – I would like you to research ‘dementia’. Identify what it is and how it affects a person’s life. What happens to their body? What parts of the body does it affect? Create an information poster to show all your findings.
  • Make sure you take regular breaks throughout the day and keep active. You can access Go Noodle or do some exercise in your garden.
