Here are some fun Phonics activities for you to enjoy at home-

Maths

This week in Maths we are investigating 2D and 3D shapes.

 

Lesson 1 – Today, we are going to look at the 3D shapes or solid shapes.   These shapes have faces. Let's look at a cube and cuboid. How many faces do they have? What is the same what is different? Are they flat or are they curved?

 

At home - Go on a shape hunt around your house. Can you find any cubes or cuboids?

 

 

Lesson 2 – 

Today, we are going to look at the 3D shapes or solid shapes.   These shapes have faces. Let's look at a sphere, cylinder and cone.

This solid shape is a sphere.  It has one curved face. There are no edges and no corners. It rolls.

 

This solid shape is a cylinder. It has two flat faces that are circles. It has one curved face. It rolls and it slides.

 

 

This solid shape is called a cone. It has one flat face and one curved face.

What shape is the flat face?

What else do you notice? It has a point.

 

Challenge - How many faces do they have? What is the same what is different? Are they flat or are they curved?

 

At home - Go on a shape hunt around your house. Can you find any spheres, cylinders and cones?

 

Lesson 3 – 

There are shapes in the world all around us. Look at a ball. What shape is this? Yes, it is a sphere. It has 1 curved face that goes all the way around. It has no corners. It is a solid (3d) shape. When do we use spheres at school? – PE. People use all sorts of balls and other equipment in sports and at the Olympics. Today we are going to be shape detectives and see what different flat 2d shapes and solid 3d shapes we can find at the Olympics.

 

Look below at the image of an athlete with a shot put. What shape can you see? I can see a sphere. It has 1 curved side that goes all the way around. There are no corners.

Look at the other images and see what shapes you can see!

Shape Hunt

Lesson 4- 

Today we are going to think about a different property of the solid shapes.

Because some shapes have flat faces and some have curved faces they can be moved in different ways. Some roll, some don’t roll they only slide. Some have flat and curved faces and they can roll and slide.

We are going to investigate if these shapes roll or slide.

 

Find a sphere and move it about. Because of its curved face it can roll,  that’s why a sphere is used as a ball because it rolls.

Can they think of any other spheres?

Let’s look at another shape - Can you find a cuboid?

Can you remember if the faces are flat or curved?

Is a cuboid is a good shape for a brick. Why isn’t it a sphere?

Can it roll or slide?

Can you find a cylinder - Does it roll or slide?

Look at can of beans and think why it might be useful for this object to be this shape?

Topic

 

We are going to be learning about The Olympics!

 

Lesson 1 – In Literacy, we read a book by an author called 'Mo Farah'. Mo Farah is is a British long-distance runner and the most successful British track athlete in modern Olympic Games history. He is the 2012 and 2016 Olympic gold medalist in both the 5000 m and 10,000 m.

This week in school is Big Arts week, where we will be making lot of amazing artwork all linked to the Olympics. This year it is held in Tokyo. Take a look and see what you can find out about the Olympics!

Olympic Games

Lesson 2 – Today we are going to make some art based around things we know about the Olympics. Maybe you could make something to do with :

-the coloured rings
-athletes
-medals
-flags
-flame cone
-sport equipment etc

Here are some ideas to help you!

Lesson 3 –  Today, we are going to be making music with different parts of our body, called Body percussion –

Some music is made without any instruments at all.

The music is made using the body – such as clapping, patting, stamping etc.

Explore the sounds that you can make.

To make music we have to plan what noises to make together and create a pattern of sounds.

You can work in patterns of 4 or 8.  Agree 8 different movements that create a sound – some that are quiet, some that are louder.

Watch the clips and see what amazing music you can make!
