How Do We Learn To Read At Bishopton?

We LOVE reading in Class3 and we have two new exciting areas of the classroom! Children can choose to access these areas as either the reader or the listener. 

 

Class Reading Tent

Children can use this quiet area of the classroom to read the book they have chosen from the Class Library (children must read to an adult first to ensure the book is at an appropriate level). The listener chooses a coloured box and asks questions about the book (eg. retrieval, inference questions etc). The children love it!

 

 

Reading Station

Children can choose to take on the role of one of our Class Reading Dogs and ask questions to the reader. It is proving very popular with the children!

A new age began when iron replaced bronze as the main metal for tools and weaponry. Society changed a lot and people lived in tribes that were often at war with each other. Iron Age people (sometimes called Celts) built hillforts for themselves where they could live and farm. The hillforts also provided protection and a good lookout place for any enemy tribes approaching. Imagine you had to build a hillfort with no supermarkets, cars or online shopping, everything you need must be grown or made within the hillfort including food, clothes, cooking pots and weapons for protection.

 Many people had been waiting for a special person to arrive and that person was Jesus. He’s now grown up a bit and is 12. What sort of things do you think he would have liked to do when he was a boy? He had a mum and dad who loved him very much and worried about him just like your parents. When have they been worried about you? Draw a picture of Jesus as a boy and describe what he might like to do now!

It was so lovely to see you on Friday :-)! Hopefully next week, I will be able to see you all at the same time .  Don't forget to bring your pets to the meeting, or your favourite cuddly toy!

This week is 'Child Mental Health Week'. Looking after our emotions is so important and it is just as important as looking after our physical health. Have you tried any of the Emotional Wellbeing activities at the top of this page? Did you enjoy them? 

Being able to recognise how we feel and put in place ways to help us deal with our emotions is really important. During this week, I will be asking you to visit the Emotional Wellbeing page on our school website and look at a different activity to do each day. Click here to access the resources. You will need to scroll down the page until you see the headline 'Child Mental Health Week 2021'.

If you have not accessed the Emotional Wellbeing Resources on our class page, choose one to try today.

Today, you are going to imagine your own scenarios for washing a woolly mammoth. Mindmap  ideas about the different steps that might be needed, including problems that would need to be overcome (such as how to get the mammoth into the bath) and possible solutions. Does it matter whether the steps are taken in chronological order or not?

Write your ideas on a piece of paper and check your spelling please. You will need this for your next piece of written work, which I will be setting as an 'assignment' on Teams.

Daily Maths

 

 

English

Look at the listed features of instructional texts. Can you explain to someone at home what the purpose of each feature is?

 

Reread How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth and look out for some of the features of instructional texts listed in the table, ticking the ones that you find. Are there any instructional features missed out of the book?

 

Identify features of instructions from the set of instructions you followed yesterday to make your models. Stick a copy of the instructions from yesterday onto the middle of a coloured sheet of A3 paper. Turn it into a poster to show the features of instructional texts by labelling them or highlighting in different colours and including a colour code key. You can use your table from earlier as a prompt for remembering the features to look out for.

 

Challenge

Choose another instructional text such as a recipe or a DIY manual and complete the last column of the table.

Spellings

Year 3

This week you are going to be learning the spellings of some homophones (words that sound the same but are spelt differently and mean different things).

 

When learning about homophones, it is important to put the word into a sentence so you can work out which spelling you need.

 

Challenge

When you think of some other homophones, write a sentence for each word.

 

Year 4

This week, you are learning to add the suffix '-ous'. Suffixes go on the end of words. 

 

 

Have a go at the activity below by writing the definitions next to the word on lined paper. Remember to use your best handwriting!

Reread 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth' up to pages 17-18, pause and look at the the illustration of the mammoth stuck up a tree. Talk about how you would get the mammoth down from the tree in three steps and come up with verbal instructions. Remember to use imperative verbs! 

 

 

Today, you are going to follow a set of written instructions about making a model woolly mammoth. Read through the whole set of instructions before you start. Why might it be helpful to read all the way through first? Discuss why the ‘You will need’ section might be important.

Challenge

Consider whether any particular steps in the written instructions could have benefitted from an extra diagram to help it to be clearer to understand or visualise. Draw a useful diagram on the space at the bottom of the sheet. You may wish to label it ‘figure 1’ and to add a reference to it (such as ‘see figure 1’) into the correct place in the written instructions.

 

Please spend 20 - 30 minutes on Letter-join.

A Time to build. Rebuilding Jerusalem: Nehemiah 1-4

Values: Love and Forgiveness

God’s people finally got to go home after living in a strange place for a long time. How would you feel if you were not able to live in your home for a long time. What would you miss? How would you feel? Think about the world today – many children are refugees and have no place to live. Write a prayer asking God to help anyone who is homeless or unable to live in their own home. Think about forgiveness and giving a second chance to people.

 

Science

 

Amp Up the Sound!

The loudness of sound, or its amplitude, is measured using the decibel. Small differences in amplitude (short sound waves) make quiet sounds, while large differences (tall sound waves) make loud sounds.  Try this fun demonstration - cover a radio speaker with a sheet of paper, and sprinkle uncooked grains of rice on top. Turn the radio on and  observe the rice. Next, crank up the music all the way — and watch out for flying rice!  Think about: “What relationship exists between the loudness of sound and amplitude?” (Hint: the bigger the amplitude, the taller the sound waves, and, therefore, the more rice will jump off the paper).

Challenge

“Some sounds have so much amplitude, they can damage our ears!” Investigate decibel levels, then design a hearing safety poster.

Daily Maths

 

 

 

SPaG

First, read our new class reader by clicking here.

Today, we are learning about imperative verbs. These are 'bossy verbs' - words that command somebody to do something, such as ‘jump’ or ‘wriggle’.

 

Look at the 'Imperative Ducks' worksheet and discuss the definitions of any unfamiliar words, using a dictionary if required. 

These imperative verbs all relate to washing something. Look at page 2 of the book and use the imperative verbs worksheet to explain possible ways of cleaning the different parts of the mammoth. For example, ‘scrub the tusks with a toothbrush’ or ‘scour behind his ears extra carefully’.

Now, you are going to practise using these imperative verbs whilst cleaning! Do you have a dirty teddy bear or some dirty toys? Using soapy water and cleaning equipment (sponges, scourers, toothbrushes and cotton buds), give them a good wash. Whilst you are washing them, describe to someone what you are doing (don't forget to use imperative verbs!).

Spend some time finishing off your story this morning. If you have finished, your next job is to self edit. This means to improve your work and make it a bit better.

 

Some questions to ask yourself.....

 

Did you go through the checklist after you had finished your story? If not, take some time to carefully check it.

Have you included any adverbials or Stone Age vocabulary? Have a look at the word mat and visuals to see if you could add something into your story and check your spelling.

Do your sentences start with a capital letter and end with a full stop or another punctuation mark e.g. ? or ! ?

Have you used capital letters for proper nouns?

Could you make a sentence sound a little better? Check you have used expanded noun phrases or use a thesaurus to find a better word.

Have you used paragraphs?

 

Use a different coloured pen (at school we use green) to add your improvements. This will show me which parts of your story you have chosen to edit (change) to improve your work.
