‘The crazy verb adverb game’
Acting can help reinforce the idea of what an adverb is, and how it can complement an accompanying verb.
How to set up the game
First think of a range of present tense verbs ending with the suffix ‘ing’ (running, jumping, swimming) and write them on to slips of paper.
Next do the same with a range of adverbs ending in the suffix ‘ly’ (slowly, sadly, happily).
Finally fold the pieces of paper and put all the verbs into one box and all the adverbs into another.
How to play
Get into two or more teams.
|What happens next?…
(See image below)
The enchanted tunnel
Standing in the forest, Sophie gently blew into her magical shell. Music filled the air and they became surrounded by sparkling lights. Suddenly a door in the thick, bumpy tree trunk appeared. The two children paused for a moment before crawling inside…
Write the next part of the story (No need to finish the whole story)
Remember to use your senses. What can they see, hear, feel and smell?
How are they feeling?
What is it like inside the tunnel?
Where does it take them?
Do they meet another character?
Do they know where they are going?
Will they face a problem or come across something dangerous, or find something exciting and magical?
You’re the auther!
|‘The Yuck factor’
This activity is an imaginative introduction to microorganisms.
Just before you start the lesson, take some gel (hair gel, soap, shampoo, shaving foam etc…….preferably green) and place a large amount on your hands. Then, pretend to sneeze loudly into your hands. Immediately after this, turn to the person next to you and shake their hand. This should get a laugh! They in turn shake the hand of the person next to them, while you turn to the person on your other side. See how far the gel goes. Ask….’What has happened to my sneeze?’ ‘How did it get on to your hand/face? Why did this happen? etc
Discuss the ideas given.
Germs can travel really far…. What happeneds if you touch the door handle or the banister?
Link this to handwashing routines.
Make a poster about how to stop germs.
Your poster must include
See the bottom of the blog for ideas.
|Maths||This week’s learning is all about shapes! We want to see whether you can remember the differences first between cubes and cuboids.
Watch this clip first and then go on a shape hunt in your kitchen. Can you make a list of what you find? Put them under the headings of Cubes and Cuboids
Let’s move onto the Sphere. Can you remember what they look like? Watch this clip and then can you write a description of a sphere? Which games can you play with a sphere?
Now let’s look at Cylinders and Cones. Watch the chip below and think about what we use cylinders for and why. What do we use cones for? Can you think of three different uses for cones?
What do animals eat? Let’s see what we remember.
Watch this video to remind yourself of what special names are given to the groups of animals that eat meat, or plants or meat and plants.
Now you have been remined, see how much you can remember by taking the quiz underneath the video!
Can you think of any animals that would fit in to these different groups? What are you, an omnivore, a carnivore or an herbivore?
As we get older, we grow and change, we start as babies and grow up to children and then adults. Animals are the same. Watch this video to see the different stages animals go through.
Now have a go at drawing the life cycle of a butterfly. Can you label the different stages?
Butterflies are very pretty to look at but they are also special because their wings are symmetrical. This means their wings are the same on each side, they have the same pattern and colours. If you held a mirror on the body of the butterfly it would look the same on both sides. This is how you can check if something is symmetrical.
Look at the butterflies underneath. You can see they are all symmetrical. Have a go at drawing, painting, or creating your own butterfly that is symmetrical.
