Dosbarth 3

Class 3: Week Beginning 13th July 2020

Bore da Class 3, sut wyt ti? I hope you are all safe and happy and that you enjoyed having a go at some of the activities last week. This is our final week of the year, I can not believe how quick the time has gone! I am very proud of all of you for how hard you have worked this year, both in school and at home. You should all be proud of yourselves too! Our time in class together was cut short but I am sure you will have lots of happy memories of the fun we had during our topics, I know I do! During our ‘Memory Box’ topic we had fun with our ‘Guess Who’ challenge trying to name who’s who from our baby photo’s, making our own memory boxes, shared our special toys and lots more. I am sure you all have lots of memories from our ‘Space’ topic too like discovering the space crash scene outside our class, making our own aliens, learning the story ‘Beegu’, designing and making moon buggies, having our own ‘space shuttle’ in class,  our moon crater experiment that made  lots of mess with flour flying everywhere and lots more!

As this is our last week, I would like you to use this week to ‘catch up’ on any activities you have not completed that you would like to have a go at.

Below are a few activity ideas you may like  to have a go at this week:

  • Write about some of your favourite  memories from Class 3 this year. I would love to hear about them!
  • Have a tea party with your family to celebrate the end of term – put some music on, dance and have fun!
  • Maybe you could bake some cakes for your tea party/ help a grown up to make sandwiches.
  • Make a friendship bracelet/key ring to give to a friend when we go back to school
  • Decorate a pebble

I hope you have a fun week, don’t forget to share your work/ pictures with me on HWB if you can, I would love to see them.

Class 3: Week Beginning 6th July 2020

Hello everyone, I hope you all enjoyed some of the activities that were here for you last week. We are about to start another week of our distance learning, keep up the excellent work you have been doing, I am very proud of how hard you have worked. For the boys and girls who are back in school for our ‘catch up and check in’ sessions, I would like you to continue to have a go at some of the activities here. We will do activities that go alongside these in class together. Please can you bring your Home Learning Logs to your class session next week.

Below are some activities that you can have a go at this week. If there are any activities that you want to continue with from previous weeks, give them a go this week.

 

Language activities

Over the last few weeks, you have worked very hard on the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. We have done list writing, story maps, story writing, we have innovated the story and some of you have written your own versions of the story. I have seen that we have had a story about ‘A Very Hungry Unhealthy Caterpillar’, ‘The Very Hungry Bee’ and ‘The Very Hungry Ladybird’. I was very proud of how hard you worked on your stories. Well done boys and girls! If you have not yet had a go at writing your own version of our story, give it a go this week.

This week I would like you to focus on your handwriting, you can do this straight into your home learning logs. You can choose any words to practise writing, it could the days of the week, months of the year, your tricky words, high frequency words, anything you like. Think carefully about your tall and long letters and have a go at joining your letters if you can.

Below I have added two amazing new writing units for you to try if you wish. The first one is all about Brian Bear’s Picnic. You can read or listen to the story and explore it, then there are some activities you can try out such as planning what you would have in your own picnic.

The other unit is all about Superheroes. You can read about the different superheroes and then have a go at making up your own!

This week I would like you to continue to practise your tricky words and high frequency words. Remember, when you are confident at spelling the words in your current phase, move onto the next phase. Have a look at the links below to see the words you need to focus on.

High frequency words

Next 200 High Frequency words

Tricky words phases

Can you write the words in an interesting sentence? Remember to try to make your sentence a ‘Super Sentence’ by adding adjectives and connective words to extend your sentences such as ‘because’ and ‘and’.

 

 Topic activities

This week I would like you to continue with your work on honey bees. I would love to see some of the posters/ fact files you have created, try to share a picture of them with me on HWB if you can.

Over the last few weeks we have done lots of activities all about different minibeasts. This week I would like you to plan and design your own minibeast. You can use the planning sheet below to help you. Be as creative and imaginative as you can! Once you have planned your minibeast can you make a model of it? I would love to see pictures of your creations.

Create your own minibeast

I hope you have fun completing some of these activities this week.
Thinking of you all. 
Miss Evans 

Hello, Miss Evans here, today was our first day in welcoming our children back to class 3 and we all had a fantastic day. We very quickly got used to how our classroom looks and the new rules we need to follow to keep us safe. We all have our own special space on the carpet and our own table space in the classroom. We make sure that we have our ‘magic bubble’ around us and not to get too close to others not to ‘pop’ our bubbles. We enjoyed catching up with each other, sharing our news, playing with playdough, writing about our memories from our time at home, building with lego, chalking outdoors, having races and much more! Mrs Fahey, the children and I all left school today with big smiles after having such a lovely time. We look forward to the fun activities we will do throughout the rest of the week. Wednesday update: Today we had enjoyed creating our own lanes using chalk and then had lots of races. We done skipping, hopping, jumping, running races and lots me. We enjoyed doing some colour addition sheets and we were busy bees making our own bees this afternoon.

Mrs Fahey and I look forward to welcoming our Group 2 class bubble back to class tomorrow! Friday update: Group 2 had a fantastic two days in class this week. We all look forward to carrying out more fun activities next week.

 

 

 

 

 

Class 3: Week Beginning 29th June 2020

Bore da boys and girls,

This week we look forward to welcoming many of our pupils back into class, it will be lovely to see you.

I hope you all had a lovely week last week and enjoyed some time outdoors in the lovely weather we had. I hope the sun will be shining again this week for us. Well done to those of you who uploaded your work to HWB last week, remember you can upload a photo of the work you do into your home learning logs too, I would love to see your work as I know how hard you are working.

Below are some activities for you to have a go at this week. If there are any activities that you have not had a go at from last week, you can give them a go this week. 

 

Language activities

Last week we started to plan ours story innovations where we changed parts of the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. Some of you may have focused only on changing the foods the caterpillar ate and some of you have had a go at changing the caterpillar too. This week I would like you to have a go at writing the story. Remember the stages of the story (egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, butterfly) will remain the same. If you have chosen a different insect then think about how the insect will change throughout the story. Have a look at the short examples below: 

Example for innovation. Remember if you have changed the insect you need to change the parts in red too.

In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf. One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and pop! Out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar. He went to find some food … 

On Monday he ate one peach but he was still hungry. 

On Tuesday he ate two kiwi’s but he was still hungry

On Sunday he ate through one leaf and felt much better. Now he wasn’t a hungry caterpillar anymore, he was a big fat caterpillar. 

He built a small house called a cocoon around himself. He stayed inside for more than two weeks.

Then he pushed his way out and finally he was a beautiful butterfly.  

Have a go at writing your story this week and remember to upload them to HWB if you can. I can’t wait to read them!

 

Maths activities

This week we are going to be focusing on money. Below are some ideas of activities and games to have a go at this week.

Please continue to practise maths using J2Blast:

(Use J2E – J2Blast- SATsBlast Level 1. See how you get and you can move up the levels as you improve)

 

 

This week I would like you to continuing to practise your tricky words and high frequency words but I would like you to focus on writing them in a sentence. Make sure you remember to use capital letters and full stops and try to make your sentences super by extending them and by using adjectives.

This week we are going to revisit the digraph ar.

Activities:

  • Can you go on a hunt around your house and garden to see what you can find that has the ‘ar’ sound.
  • Write what you find in a list and draw a picture to match them.
  • Choose at least 3 of the words and write them in a super sentence.
  • Year 2 phonics ‘ar’ and ‘al’
  • Sorting sounds game

 

Welsh activities

This week we are going to be focusing on foods in Welsh.  I would like you to practise the sentence patterns:

Beth wyt ti’n hoffi fwtya? (What do you like to eat?)

Dw i’n hoffi bwyta … (I like to eat…)

 

Beth wyt ti ddim yn hoffi fwyta? (What don’t you like to eat?)

Dw I ddim yn hoffi bwyta… (I don’t like to eat…)

  1. Practise asking and answering these questions  with a grown up or with your bothers or sisters. If a grown up could record you speaking in welsh and upload it to your HWB that would be great, I would love to hear you!

2. Have a go at writing a few sentences to tell me what you like/ don’t like to eat and draw some pictures to match. Have a look at the links below for Welsh food words.

Food vocabulary

Food word mat

Fruit word mat

3. In our story ‘The very hungry Caterpillar’, he ate lots of different foods. Can you write a list of the foods he ate in Welsh?

 

Topic activities

This week we are going to focus on honey bees as part of our topic on minibeasts.

What do you already know about bees? Create a mind map to write what you know. Think about the following things:

  • What colour are they?
  • What do they do?
  • What is their job?
  • What do they sound like?
  • Where do they live?

Once you have thought about what you already know, have a look at the links below to find out more.

https://www.natgeokids.com/uk/discover/animals/insects/honey-bees/

https://www.coolkidfacts.com/bee-facts/

https://youtu.be/ta154f5Rp5Y

Can you create a poster or a fact file to show me what you know about bees?

In your fact file try to include the following:

  • Where bees live
  • What bees look like – can you draw a detailed picture of a bee and tell me information about how many legs/ wings/ eyes they have?
  • What do bees eat?
  • What is a bees important job?
  • And any other interesting facts you have found.

 

I hope you enjoy the activities this week. Mrs Fahey look forward to seeing some of you this week!

Have fun!

Miss Evans

 

 

 

Class 3: Week Beginning 22nd June 2020

Good afternoon boys and girls! Mrs Fahey and I are looking forward to seeing you next week back in class 3. Today Mrs Fahey and I have been busy bees working hard rearrange our classroom ready for next week. We have special crosses on the carpet area that we will sit on when it is carpet time. We have two handwashing stations in our classroom and 4 areas each side of the classroom to sit and play at. Each of you will have your own zip lock bag with pencil, rubber, ruler, sharpener, glue and colouring pencils in and your own tub of construction toys and playdough that will be yours to use each time you come to class. In the areas that we have set up Mrs Fahey and I will put out different resources each day for you to use such as small world figures, junk modelling and collage materials. I have uploaded some photos below so you can see what our class looks like now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We look forward to seeing you next week!

Love from Miss Evans and Mrs Fahey

 

Shwmae boys and girls. I hope everyone is well. It was great to see some of the lovely work that a few of you shared with me last week, please keep sharing your work with me through HWB if you can. I have seen some excellent story writing of our story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ this week, some very creative clocks, fact files of a chosen minibeast and lots more. Keep up the great work boys and girls, you are doing a fantastic job and I am very proud of you!

Here are some more activities or you to have a go at this week. If you wish to continue with any of the tasks from the previous weeks, please do so. Hope you enjoy!

Language activities 

Over the last few weeks we have been focusing on the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. So far we have done list writing, story maps and have had a go at writing the story.

This week we are going to use the story that we now know well and we are going to become authors! We are going to innovate the story, that means to change the story, just like we did when we focused on our story Elfa and the box of memories when we were in class together.

We are going to keep some things the same and change other parts of the story. For example, we could change what the caterpillar ate on the different days. So on Monday instead of eating one apple, he could eat one pineapple.

If you are feeling very clever year 2, you may want to change the caterpillar too! You may decide to have ‘The Very Hungry Frog’. Remember to think about the life cycle then – egg, tadpole , frog.

This week I would like you to plan your new story using the template below. Remember if you are unable to print, you can complete it straight into your home learning log. I have also uploaded an example of one I have completed for you to have a look at.

Hungry Caterpillar Story Innovation Example

Class 3: Week beginning 15th June 2020

 

Parents, please see attached a letter regarding pupils returning to school from 29th June 2020.

Parent-Letter-120620-Eng

 

Bore da Class 3,

Sut wyt ti? I hope you all had a good week and enjoyed some of last weeks activities. Thank you to those of you who uploaded your work on HWB for me to see. I saw fantastic story maps, videos of you retelling the story of the hungry caterpillar, welsh descriptions of minibeasts and more. I love seeing the work you have been doing, so keep sharing it with me if you can. 

Have a look below for this weeks activities. Remember if you did not finish any activities from last week, you can continue with them if you’d like to. 

 

Language activities 

For the last few weeks we have been learning the story of the very hungry caterpillar. This week I would like you to write to write the story of the hungry caterpillar. Try to include the time connectives if you can and remember to use your story map to help you.

Click on the link below to view a word mat to help you with the key words from the story.

Hungry Caterpillar word mat

Have a look below for a short example, you can use the same start as I have for your story.

In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf. One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and pop! Out of the eff came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar. He went to find some food … 

On Monday he ate one apple but he was still hungry.

On Tuesday he ate two pears but he was still hungry. 

Can you complete the rest of the story? Remember to use capital letters at the start of the sentence and for the days of the week and don’t forget your full stops.

 

Maths activities 

This week I would like you to focus on ‘time’.

Year 1 – can you tell the time to the hour? Can you use half past?

Year 2 -can you tell the time to the hour? Can you use half past, quarter past and quarter to?

Remember the important rule about how we use the big and small hands to help us tell the time. The small hand points to the hour. The big hand points to the minutes past. When the big hand points to the 12 the time is ‘o’clock’.

This week we are going to have a go at lots of practical activities to help us learn to tell the time. Have a look at the activities below:

Telling the time powerpoint

  • Can you make your own clock? Maybe you could make a big clock outdoors using chalk and sticks for the hands. Ask a grown up to shout out a time, can you use the sticks to show the time they called?

 

  • Can you make your own paper plate clock? Year 2 can you show the minutes past?

If you have made some times on your clocks, ask a grown up to take some photos of you showing me the times and upload them to HWB if you can.

  • Think about the different things that you do during the times of the day. When do you have your breakfast? When do you brush your teeth, go to bed? Can you draw some pictures of what you do during the day and write the time next to them? 

Please have a go at practising maths using J2Blast. It was lovely to see some of you practise on here last week, well done!

(Use J2E – J2Blast- SATsBlast Level 1. See how you get and you can move up the levels as you improve)

 

 

 

Well done to those of you who have been working really hard with your phonics. I saw some excellent work on ‘ue’ words last week with you writing your own words with the split digraph too.

This week we are going to revise the diagraph ‘er’ as in spider, teacher.

Year 1 activities

  • Can you write a list of as many ‘er’ words as you can think of? Draw a picture to match the words.
  • Choose at least 3 of the words and write them in a sentence. Remember what sentences need to have. That’s right… capital letters and a full stop.
  • Have a go at the ‘er word search if you can. er Word Search With Word Bank

Year 2 activities 

The digraph ‘er’ can also have alternative spellings that make the same sound. There are ‘ir’ as in dirt, ‘or’ as in worm, and ‘ur’ as in curl.

  • Can you make a list of words that have our sound in? If your unsure of which spelling you should use, write it in each way and put a tick next to the one you think is right.
  • Have a go at the sorting words sheet here. Alternative spellings for ‘er’ sound
  • Choose at least 3 words and write them in an interesting sentence. Remember to use capital letters and full stops.

Don’t forget to continue to practise the spellings of your tricky words and high frequency words. Remember you can move through the phases once you are confident at spelling the words in your current phase.

 

Topic activities 

For our topic work this week I would like you to think of your own mini topic about minibeasts to focus on for the week. You may decide you want to learn more about a specific minibeast such as a spider or a snail. Or you may wish to make a poster all about an minibeast, such as a butterfly to show me everything that you have learnt about them the last few weeks. You may choose to do some craft activities on the minibeast of your choice.

Over the last few weeks we have been focusing on the story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and last week one activity was to keep your own food diary for the week. This week I would like you to have a go at some of the activities below.

  • Not all the foods the hungry caterpillar ate were healthy foods. Can you make a list ‘healthy foods’ and ‘unhealthy foods’ and write the foods he ate under the correct heading.

To have a healthy diet, our foods are split into food groups. Can you name any of the food groups? They are…

Fruit and vegetagbles

Carbohydrates

Dairy

Protein

Fat

To have a balanced diet, which means a healthy diet, we need to have foods from all of these groups. But there are some groups we should not each too much of. Can  you guess which it is?

Have a little look at the PowerPoint here to learn more about the food groups. Healthy Eating – Food groups

  • Have a go at the food group sorting activity on the powerpoint below.
  • Food groups sorting
  • Using the template below, or drawing into your home learning log, can you plan your own healthy meal? Remember to try to include something from a few of the different food groups on your plate. Meal template

I hope you enjoy this weeks activities. If you have any questions please email me on evansr811@hwbcymru.net.

Have fun, keep safe and I look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Maths activities 

Last week we focused on making symmetrical patterns using 2d and 3d shapes and I saw some lovely symmetrical butterflies being made.

This week we are going to continue with shape and symmetry activities. Have a look at the activities below and have a go at a few of them.

  1. Can you go on 3D shape hunt around your home? What can you find that is a cube, cuboid, sphere, cone, pyramid, cylinder, and triangular prism? Are there any shapes you could not find? What were they?
  2. Can you make your own symmetrical pattern? You could draw a line down the middle of the page and create a mirrored image of a pattern. Using chalk outdoors, draw a line on the floor, collect objects such as leaves, twigs, stones and make a symmetrical pattern.
  3. Can you make the butterfly symmetrical by drawing the correct 2d shapes?

Please have a go at practising maths using J2Blast:

(Use J2E – J2Blast- SATsBlast Level 1. See how you get and you can move up the levels as you improve)

 

 

 

 

Year 1 – This week we are going to focus on the digraph ‘ue’. Have a look at the video below.

 

Activities:

  1. Can you write a list of words with ‘ue’? Go on a hunt around your house to see if you can find anything with this sound in.
  2.  Year 1 – Find and write the ‘ue’ words  If you are unable to print the sheets, please write the words straight into your home learning logs and draw a picture to match, or you can do this on HWB using J2E.

 

Year 2 – This week I would like you to focus on the ‘ue’ digraph too but we will look at the split digraph u_e too. Have a look at the video below:

Activities:

  1. Can you write a list of words with ‘ue’ ‘u_e’? Go on a hunt around your house to see if you can find anything with this sound in.
  2.  Year 2 – Find and write u_e words     If you are unable to print the sheets, please write the words straight into your home learning logs and draw a picture to match, or you can do this on HWB using J2E.

ou could use the internet or a book to find out more about that animal. For example, what it eats, what it looks like, where it lives, any particular unusual features etc..

 

Topic activities 

Last week we started to learn all about the life cycle of a butterfly. We now know the life cycle; egg – caterpillar – chrysalis – butterfly. Below is a very interesting  video that shows the lifecycle, have a little look, I’m sure you will enjoy it.

  1. This week I would like you to create a fact file all about butterflies. You could use the internet or a book to find out lots of information. Try to include lots of interesting facts about what it looks like, what it eats, where it lives, any particular unusual features etc. You could write it on paper and draw a picture to go with it, or you could try doing it on JIT5.

2. The caterpillar was very hungry wasn’t he?! Can you keep a little diary of what you have to eat for the week? Can you write what you have for break, lunch, dinner and snacks each day? You can do this straight into your home learning log or you can use the template below.

My food diary

 

Below are some creative activity ideas you may like to try this week:

Can you create your own caterpillar? Maybe you could use milk bottle tops, plastic cups, sponge painting, handprints, egg boxes. Can you create a repeated pattern for it’s body, e.g. green, red, green, red? How long is your caterpillar? Can you measure it?

Can you make your own 3D butterfly using resources you have in your house? Try using recyclable materials such as plastic bottles, cardboard tubes, plastic cups, lollypop sticks etc. If you can, take a photo of your creations and share them with me on HWB, I would love to see them.

 

Welsh activities

Over the last few weeks we have been learning about the names of minibeasts in Welsh. We have listened to the story ‘Tedi Twt a Doli Glwt yn yr Ardd’, matched names of minibeasts, learnt about where they live in Welsh and have written a short description of a minibeast.

Activity 1:

Can you match the descriptions to the correct minibeast? You need to remember your colours in welsh.

Matching Descriptions

Activity 2:

Have a go at writing making your own matching cards using the language we have practised over the last few weeks. Choose 3 minibeasts to write clues about. You can tell me the colours they are, if they are big (mawr) or small (bach) and where they live.

 

I hope you enjoy the activities this week, if you have any questions you can email me evansr881@hwbcymru.net. Remember you can also comment using the speech bubbles above your work on HWB. 

Have fun this week and keep safe. 

Miss you all and hope to see you soon.

Bore da boys and girls,

Miss Evans here, how are you all? I hope you and your families are all safe and well. Did you have a nice half term? We were very lucky to have such lovely weather last week, I hope you made the most of it by having lots of fun outdoors with your family.

As we start our first week of our final Summer term, we will be continuing with our topic of ‘Minibeasts’. So far we have written a poem about a minibeast, named as many minibeasts as we could by writing a list, been on a minibeast hunt, explored minibeasts and their habitats, learnt the names of minibeasts in Welsh and described them and created bug hotels. We have been busy bees! When we began our topic, many of you sent me a topic web back of things that you would like to learn about, and a very popular response was the life cycle of a butterfly. So this is going to be our focus this week.

Below are some activities for you to have a go of this week. If you have any questions you can email me evansr881@hwbcymru.net. If you upload your work to HWB I will leave comments in the speech bubbles in your files about your work. Remember you can also comment back, I’d love to hear from you! 

Language activities

I would like you to write a recount about your Whitsun holidays. Have a think about things that you have done that you have enjoyed. Maybe you have had fun in the garden, been in a paddling pool, had water fights, played games with your family, been on walks, planting and much more. I would love to hear about what you got up to.

When you write your recount, remember it is in the past tense as you will be telling me about something you have done. Remember to use capital letters and full stops. Have a go at using time connectives in your writing, for example, first, next, then, after that. We

Below is a recount template you could use. If you can’t print it, you can write your recount straight into your home learning books or you can use JIT5 to type your work.

Recount template

 

Maths activities

This week I would like you to focus on different types of 2D and 3D shapes and symmetrical patterns.

You could try and make a collage using different 2D shapes or you could try and make a 3D sculpture! Try to take photos if you do and share them with me on HWB. You could look around the garden and see if you can find any symmetrical patterns. Can you create your own symmetrical pattern? What shapes have you used? Remember when something is symmetrical it is the same both sides.

Below are some further activities that you could try to develop your knowledge and understanding of shapes and symmetry.

Here is an interactive activity for you to have a go at where you need to select the correct 2d shape to make the butterfly symmetrical.

This week I would like you to continuing practising your tricky words from the set that you are on. Ask a grown up to test you on spelling your words and if you are confident at spelling them, move onto the next phase.

Tricky Words

I would also like you to keep practising the spellings of High Frequency Words. Below is a link to these words, work on the phase that you are currently on with your tricky words. If you are confident with all of these, move onto the next phase.

Phase 2 to 5 High Frequency Words

Ideas of how to practise these words:

  •  Can you choose a few of the words from your list and write them in a sentence? Can you make your sentence a ‘Super Sentence’? Remember we do this by adding adjectives, verbs and by making our sentences longer  by adding those connective words such as ‘because’ and ‘and’.
  •  Rainbow writing – write the words in as many different colours as you can. Maybe you can write them in a shape of a rainbow!
  • Practise writing them outdoors with chalk or a paint brush and water.
  • Write them in paint
  • Bubble writing
  • Type them using JIT5

Topic activities

This week we are going to start learning all about the life cycle of a butterfly. The first thing I would like you to do is to write/ draw what you think the life cycle of a butterfly is like? Record your ideas. After you have done this I would like you to listen to the story of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. Were you right about the life cycle? What happened?

Activities:

  1. After listening to the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, can you show the lifecycle of a butterfly? You can be creative and display this is any way you would like. Have a little look at the ideas below:

*Don’t forget to label the process of the life cycle.

2. Now you know the life cycle of a butterfly, can you research some facts about each stage and write a short factfile about it. Have a little look at the information sheets below to help.

Life cycle information poster Butterfly facts

3. Now have a go at writing a little bit about each process. Have a look at the sheet below, you can either print or complete it on JIT5 or straight into your home learning books.

Butterfly Life Cycle Write up

 

I hope you enjoy the activities this week. Remember, upload your work to HWB if you can so I can see your fantastic work! 

Keep safe, miss you all,

Miss Evans

Bore da Class 3,

Sut wyt ti? I hope you are all safe and well and have been having fun at home with your families. Last week I saw some fantastic photos of the bug hotels some of you have made, I know you have even had some ‘guests’! Well done to all of you who have continued to upload your work to HWB, you have been working so hard and I am very proud of you.

 

This week is Whitsun half term so I would like you to spend the time to catch up with any activities that you have not had chance to do over the last few weeks. If there is anything that you found a little bit tricky to do, have a little practise of it again this week with and ask a grown up to help you.

 

Below are some fun activity ideas you may wish to have a go at this week.

  • Remember to keep a look out over half term to see if your bug hotel has any guests too and record it on the sheet. If you have not made one yet, maybe you could have a little go this week.
  • Have fun outdoors in the sunshine, but remember to keep safe, wear a hat and suncream.
  • Go on a 2d or 3d shape hunt around your house or garden
  • Set up an obstacle course outdoors
  • Build a den and share a story in there with someone
  • Make a bird feeder
  • Help a grown up do some gardening; plant some seeds.
  • Play games with your family
  • While outside in the garden, or when you go for a walk with grown ups try collecting leaves, twigs and stones to make a minibeast picture.
  •  Paint some stones, you can paint them to be minibeasts, a rainbow, anything you want!

I hope you all have a lovely half term and I look forward to hearing all about what you have got up to next week. Remember if you would like to send me any photos of you doing some activities this week, then please do, I would love to see them.

Keep safe and have fun,

Miss you all very much,

Topic activities 

So far as part of our topic work we have made lists of the names of minibeasts, been on a minibeast hunt, wrote facts about a chosen minibeast, created our own minibeasts and started to learn about a minibeasts’ habitat. We have definitely been busy bees! Remember if there is anything that you have not had chance to complete and would like to do so, please do.

This week why not try to make your own bug hotel? Have a look at the pictures and links below for ideas of how you can build your bug hotel.

Once you have made your bug hotel, I would like you to look closely each day to see if you have any ‘guests’. Record your findings on the sheet below. This can be done over the next two weeks. I wonder what minibeasts will visit your hotel? I can’t wait to hear about it. If you can, take some photos of your bug hotel and share them with me on HWB.

Minibeast hotel recording sheet

 

Welsh activities

The last few weeks we have been learning the names of minibeasts and how to ask and answer new sentence patterns. This week I would like you to use all of the skills you have learnt so far to write a short profile about a minibeast. Look at the example below:

Pili Pala ydw i. Dw in oren , coch, du a melyn. Dw in byw yn yr ardd. 

Have a go at writing your own. The parts highlighted in red are the parts you could change. Draw a picture to go with what you have written about. If your feeling very clever, have a go at writing more than one!

 

I hope you have fun completing some of these activities this week. Remember if you have any questions you can email me on evansr881@hwbcymru.net. 

Miss you all, keep safe.

Class 3: Week Beginning 11th May 2020

 

 

Bore da Class 3,

How are you all? I hope you are all safe and well. I was glad to see the sun return last week and get outside in the garden. I hope you all had a fun week and enjoyed completing some the activities that I left for you. I have been very impressed with how many of you that have been sharing your work with me on HWB. You should be very proud of yourselves; I am proud of you all because this way of working is very different from when we are in class together and you have all been working very hard. I will leave comments in the speech bubbles in your files about your work, you can also comment back. Keep up the excellent work boys and girls!

This week I would love to hear about what you have been doing during your time at home. Have you learnt any new skills? Maybe you have been getting creative and been practising your drawing or painting skills, helping grown ups to do some cooking or gardening? I have been learning to crochet and have so far made some teddy bears, it is fun to learn a new skill, give it a go!

 

If you have any activities from the previous weeks that you haven’t finished or would like to continue with, please do. In the meantime, below are some activities that you can try this week. 

 

Literacy activities

For the last few weeks we have been focusing on rhyming words ready to write our own poems. This week we are going to use the skills that we have learnt to have a go at writing our own short rhyming poem about minibeasts. You can choose one minibeast to write your poem about or it can be about many minibeasts. When you write your poem, think about the following things:

What do the minibeasts look like? Use adjectives to describe what they look like.

Are they bright,  beautiful, big, small, long, furry, shiny, slimy, pretty?

What is their personality like?

Are they happy, friendly, kind, mean?

What are they doing?

Are they flying, buzzing, eating, munching, hiding, slithering, creeping, crawling?

Try to include some rhyming words in your poem. Remember to give your poem a title, remember a grown up can help you. Click on the link below to see some examples. It would be lovely if you can decorate your poem with pictures too! 

Poem examples

 

 

 

 

This week I would like you to continue to practise your tricky words and high frequency words. Remember you can do this in many different ways.

  • Rainbow writing
  • Use paint to write your words
  • Bubble writing
  • Chalk
  • Making the letters out of playdough, stones, twigs, any loose parts.

This week I would like you to practise your handwriting, so choose a few words from the list and write them neatly into your home learning logs. Remember join your letters if you can.

Class 3: Week beginning 27th April 2020


Bore da Class 3! Miss Evans here! I hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine we have had again this last week and keeping safe and well. It has been nice to see some of you have used HWB and the work is in your files. Remember that if you are unable to access HWB, you can do your work in your home learning log book. 

Well, we are now in the Summer term and during our last week that we were together in school, we thought carefully about what topic we would like to learn about this term. As a class we decided we wanted to learn all about animals so this week we will start our topic off by learning all about Minibeasts. So what are minibeasts? Minibeasts are insects and bugs such as, spiders, caterpillars and many more. I am sure you can name lots!

If you have any questions you can email me on evansr881@hwbcymru.net

Below you will find the activities that I have left here for you to complete this week. I am sure you will have lots of fun completing these this week.                             

Topic activities:

I would like you to complete the 3 topic activities below this week.

  1. In your Home Learning Logs create a mindmap showing all the things that you already know about minibeasts. How many can you name? Do you know where they live? What they eat? Write it down on your mindmap.

 

  1. After you have created your mindmap I would like you to have a think of what you would like to learn about during this topic. Do you want to learn about a certain minibeast? Do you want to find out about what they eat? Do you want to learn about the lifecycles of a butterfly? Write down on a new mindmap everything that you would like to learn. Please ask a grown up to help you take a photo of this and upload it using J2E so I can see what interesting things you would like to learn about.

 

Click on the link below to see an example of how to set out your mindmap. I know you will include lots more detail on yours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. This final activity is one I think you are going to have lots of fun doing. I would like you all to become minibeast detectives! Get your magnifying glasses ready, your good looking eyes and listening ears and start searching. Go out into your garden, or when you go out for a walk with a grown up, see how many minibeasts you can find. Don’t forget, many of the minibeasts like to hide so check underneath rocks and plants. Below is a hunt sheet you can print and complete when you are on your hunt. If you can not print it, then make your own by drawing a picture or writing the name of the bug. I would like you to record how many of each minibeast you find using a tally. Remember the rule we learnt, when we say a number that is in the 5 times tables we make a gate.

Below is the link you will need for your minibeast hunt sheet and an activity I would like you to compete after your hunt. You can print it or can write it into your home learning book.

Minibeast Hunt Sheet My Minibeast Hunt Write Up

If you are unable to print the reseources above, ask a grown up to help you write it in your home learning logs.

Here are some links to videos about minibeasts that I think you will enjoy listening to.

  1. You can also continue to practise spelling your tricky words daily. Remember you can practise your words in many fun ways:
  • Bubble writing
  • Rainbow writing
  • Cut up a piece of paper into small squares, write the letters from your tricky words on each piece and then build your words together.

 

  1. This week I would like you to practise writing words with the ‘th’ digraph. How many words can you think of? Can you write them in a sentence?

If you are confident at spelling the tricky words you are on, ask a grown up test you and if you do well, move onto the next phase of words.

Maths Activities 

This week I would like you to continue practising your times tables. Remember you can use J2Blast to practise these or the games on the Topmarks website.

Have a go at the Daily 10 challenge on Topmarks. See if you can improve on your result each day.

After you have been on your minibeast hunt I would like you to make a pictogram to show what minibeasts you found. You can do this through J2E like we have done in class. I will share an example with you in our shared files on HWB.

I have left a video below for you to help remind you how to use JIT5 to create your pictogram, so if your unsure take a little look.

This link includes all the Year 1 and 2 language patterns that you can practise: Welsh Language Patterns

This week I would like you to practise the following patterns:

Pwy wyt ti?

Sut wyt ti?

Sut mae’r tywydd heddiw?

Draw a picture to go with the answers of each of these and share them on HWB. Why not teach members of your family how to ask and answer these questions.

Week beginning 20th April 2020

Hello Class 3,

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter, have been keeping safe and enjoying the lovely weather that we have had. It is very strange not to be with you all in school and I miss you all very much. I will be putting ideas and video’s here for you of activities for you to complete. 

Bellow are the activities that I would like you to complete this week. You can complete these through HWB using J2E-JIT5 or you can complete them on paper into your home learning logs. If you complete them into your home learning logs please can you take a photo and upload it onto HWB, if possible, so I can see the fantastic work you have done.

Phonics Activities

This week I would like you to continue to practise your tricky words that you were given in your home learning logs. You can practise them in lots of different ways.

  • Rainbow writing – write your words in different colours. How colourful can you make your page?
  • Chalk – ask a grown up where you can practise writing your words on the wall/ floor outside.
  • Write your words in glitter, salt or flour.

The digraph I would like you to focus on this week is ‘ch’.

Click on the links below to watch the video’s.

Activities:

  1. Go on a hunt around your house to see how many things you can find that has the ‘ch’ sound in them. Remember the ‘ch’ sound doesnt have to be at the start of the word, it can appear at the end too.
  2. Write down the words that you have found and draw some pictures of them too.
  3. Can you write your ‘ch’ words in an interesting sentence?

 

Writing activities

This week I would like you to write about your news from the Easter holidays. Did the Easter bunny visit you? Did you go on an Easter egg hunt in the house or in the garden? Have you had fun playing games with your brothers and sisters? Maybe you have been playing board games with  the grown up’s, going for walks or bikes rides? I would love to hear what you have been up to during the Easter holidays. 

 

PE/Games activities

It is very important that you keep active on a daily basis. If you have a garden, think of all the different activities that you can do outside to keep fit. Do you have space to play games? throwing and catching, kicking balls? What athletic activities can you do in the space? Races back and forth? Perhaps you could time yourself? See if you can beat your time! How many star jumps can you do in 30 seconds/ 1 minute? Can you beat your score?

If you don’t have space in a garden, or would prefer to keep active inside, try: 5 a day fitness and Joe Wickes.

I hope you have lots of fun completing these activities this week.

Keep safe, missing you all.

Miss Evans
