This week we are learning all about plastic pollution. 

 

I would like you to:

1) Write about a time that you have been to the ocean. What was it like? What did you do there?

2) Talk to an adult at home. Is it OK to ever drop litter?

3) Complete the plastic pollution reading comprehension. 

4) Use the internet or books to find out about pollution in the ocean. How is the ocean being polluted? Create a fact file or poster to show what you have found.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/uk/newsid_3959000/3959577.stm  

5) Find out about how you can recycle items at home. 

6) Research David Attenborough. Who is he? Why is he an important person? Create a fact file about him using headings and short paragraphs. 

7) Use materials at home to create an ocean themed piece of art work. It could be a picture of your favourite sea creature, a seaside landscape or a beach scene!

8) Recycle some trash at home into something useful. You could make a bird feeder out of recycled mottles. Write some instructions using 'first', 'next', 'then' and 'after' to explain how you did it!

9) Upload some pictures of your learning to Seesaw. It would be great to see what you have been doing!

Useful Websites during school closure

Here is a list of some useful educational websites available during the school closure

Homes for Beegu

We built homes for Beegu out of different materials including wood, foil, plastic and paper. We used what we had learnt last week in our bottle experiment to help Beegu to have a warm home. We talked about the properties of each material and why it might be good to make a home out of. We worked in pairs to design our home first, and then we built it together. Not only did we investigate materials but we developed our team work skills too.  

Cricket. 

We will be developing our cricket skills through our weekly cricket sessions. In week one, we played some throwing and catching games, we had a great time. 

 Family Maths 

Thank you to Family Learning who came to our school to do some shape based activities with parents and children.  We really enjoyed ourselves.

Bottle Experiment 

Today we did a science experiment. We used different materials to test which would keep a bottle of warm water warm the longest. They used paper, fabric, foil and a plastic carrier bag.  You may want to try this experiment out again at home. 

27/2/20

Beegu

We are studying the book called Beegu by Alexis Deacon. We will be using this to learn about our Science topic this term, which is all about materials and their properties. Here is our knowledge mat for this topic. This is full of the knowledge and vocabulary that we will be learning over the Spring 2 half term. It would be great if you would go over this with us at home too. 

Key Questions 

Here are the key questions that we will be exploring and answering in our topic "What does Beegu think of life on planet Earth? 

We will be learning all about different materials and their properties. 

Welcome back!

Home Learning for this term

Please see the list of key documents below. You will have also received a paper copy of these in your child's book bag

Key Questions

Here are the key questions that we will be exploring and answering in our topic "Where do and did the wheels on the bus go?"

Our topic is based on Local Geography. We will begin our topic with a walk around the local area and we will be finding out all about Dungworth. 

Our Trip to the Cathedral

We went to explore the city centre. We took a walk around the city centre to see what was similar and what was different to Dungworth. We then went to one of Sheffield's most important buildings, the Cathedral, to learn about what it is used for and what is special about it. 

The Naughty Bus

We are studying the book called 'The Naughty Bus' by Jan and Jerry Oke. We will be using this to learn about our Geography topic this term, which is all about UK geography. Here is our knowledge mat for local geography. This is full of the knowledge and vocabulary that we will be learning over the Spring 1 half term. It would be great if you would go over this with us at home too. 

Year 1 and 2 local walk. 

The focus for our learning in week 2 is signs We went on a local walk to see what road signs were around Dungworth. We will use this in our writing later in the week. 

Fiction or Non-Fiction?

In Y1, we have been sorting books into fiction and non-fiction and also talking about what what makes books non - fiction. Did you know that non-fiction books are full of facts? And that they usually have a contents and index page? They also have real photos a lot of the time and captions to explain what is going on in the pictures. 

Schools through time 

On Friday we had some special visitors come into Rainbow and Willow class.  Mr and Mrs Martin showed the class photos of when they were at school and talked all about the things they learnt and got up to at school. We got a chance to ask questions and even play some of the games they played when they were at school.

Why are I-Pads more fun than our grandparent's old toys?

We have been interviewing grandparents and some of our classroom helpers to find out what toys they played with when they were children. We also found out about what school was like when they went to it. Here are some of the things that we found out:

  1. They had no I-Pads and no Interactive Whiteboard.
  2. They did not have a lot of money so made some of their own toys and also played outside a lot. 
  3. In school, they had a nit nurse visit to look for head lice.
  4. In school, they played marbles, skipping and hopscotch at play times.
  5. In school, they had wooden tables and used a pen and nib to write with. They also had an ink well on their table. 
  6. In school, they also got milk, but it was in a glass bottle! 

We have loved finding out all this information and we really enjoyed it when Mr Gilbert shared some of his actual toys with us. 

Here is the homework sheet for Willow class for Spring 1 2020. 

Here is the spelling homework for group 1 and 2. Our spelling competition will be Friday 18th October 2019.
