Always Learning and Achieving Together

Week beginning 11.5.20

Dear Dahl class,

I hope that you are all keeping well and enjoyed celebrating VE Day. It was so lovely to talk to so many families last week or to hear from others teachers about how you are getting on.  Keep up the hard work. Remember if you have some great learning to share you can ask a grown up to email it to I would love to see what you have been up to.

Below is the self-isolation leaning for this week.

If you don’t have access to a printer then just copy the answers to the questions into your learning book. Don't worry if you do not have time to do everything, pick the activities that interest you and try to do a little learning every day. 



1) Look at this picture. It's called 'Morning Surprise'.  Why do you think it is called this?     

a.  You can only ask 3 questions to the octopus. What would you ask and why?  

b. How did the octopus get here?

c. Why is ir wearing a hat? 

d. Where did the plants come from?

e. Write to story about how the octopus came to be here and what happens next. 


2) Spellings. Practise these words. You could try rainbow writing.

Look at Week 3 of the Spelling booklet for ideas to help you learn these words. 

Write 5 sentences using 5 words. Try to use interesting adjectives and conjunctions. If you have a dictionary you could look up these words. 

pencil   fossil   nostril   pupil   metal   pedal  capital   hospital   animal   oval.   

Ask an adult to test you on your words. 


3) Keep reading as much as you can. Try this reading comprehension about Captain Tom Moore. Remember to read the text carefully and highlight to find the answer. There are 3 levels to choose from. Look at the stars at the bottom of the page. Write the answers in your book. 



1) Answer the questions about the pictograms. Be careful and notice that one picture = 2. You will need to practise counting in 2s. You can answer the questions in your book. Try to make your own pictogram where one picture = 2. Maybe you could make a pictogram to show Haribo sweets in a packet or  make a pictogram to show eye colour. You could ask as many people as you can. 


2) Practise adding tens. Try to answer the questions on the sheet. You can write the answers in your book. Remember to draw 'chips' and 'peas' to represent the tens and ones. 


3) Play Addition Race with a pack of cards. This is a 2 player game. Remove the picture cards first and deal out the cards to each player. Both players turn over their cards at the same time. The first person to say the total wins the cards. Ths game can be made easier by removing 'trickier' numbers such as 7,8,9. You can also change the game to practice subtracting. 


4) Try the arithmetic paper. 



We are continuing with our learning about Living Things and Habitats. 

Try to collect about 20 different objects or pictures. Can you sort them into 'Living', 'Dead', and 'Never been alive'. Think about an apple. This was once living on a treebut a plastic toy apple has never been alive. Either draw pictures in your book or take photographs of how you have sorted your objects and pictures. There are some pictures which will give you some ideas in the link below.
