Explorers

 Welcome to the Explorers Home Learning Page

The work on this page is for those children who are isolating at home. If your child is isolating, you will have received a letter from us explaining what to do and letting you know the work pack your child needs to use. This is what you need to do:

 

  1. Scroll down below the teachers’ photographs
  2. Click on right pack for your child. This is your child’s learning for the next two weeks.
  3. Look at the work in the pack with your child and talk to them about how this is going to be completed every day.

 

The work should be completed in the book we have sent home. It would be great if you could help and encourage your child to personalize the book into something they are really proud of. Enjoy the learning!

Today’s game will help you to count forwards and backwards in steps of anything from 1 – 12.  I would like you to practice counting in steps of 10.  Use the ‘STEPS OF’ slider on the left hand side and slide it to 10 (keep the other ‘START NUM’ slider at 0).  The switch on the right hand side lets you swap between counting forwards and backwards.  Make sure you have a go at both.  Then try counting in steps of 5 and steps of 2.  Good luck!

  • What is the tallest slope you have been down?
  • Have you fallen over yet? 
  • How many hot chocolates have you had?

Here is the link of how to write a postcard if you need a reminder:

Today you are going to be estimating the volume of water in a glass.  Look carefully at the glasses and estimate the amount of water in them.  Some glasses hold 50ml of water and some hold 100ml of water so think really carefully.  Remember an estimate is a good guess, so it doesn’t matter if you get it wrong! For example: the first glass holds 50ml and the glass is half full, so, what is half of 50ml?

Please send me a video of you reading your story.  Then you can add pictures to your writing.

THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR

In the light of the moon a little egg lay on a leaf.

One Sunday morning the warn sun can up and – pop! – out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar.

He started to look for some food.

On Monday he ate through one________________ but he was still hungry.

On Tuesday he ate through two ________________ but he was still hungry.

On Wednesday he ate through three ________________ but he was still hungry.

On Thursday he ate through four ________________ but he was still hungry.

On Friday he ate through five ________________ but he was still hungry.

On Saturday he ate through _______________ .  That night he had a stomachache!

The next day was Sunday again. 

The caterpillar ate through one nice green leaf and after that he felt much better.

Now he wasn’t hungry any more – and he wasn’t a little caterpillar any more.

He was a big fat caterpillar.

He build a small house, called a cocoon, around himself.

He stayed inside for more than two weeks.

Then he nibbled a hole in the cocoon, pushed his way out and…

He was a beautiful butterfly!

Tuesday 28th April

Good morning Explorers!  Well done to those of you who did their tricky words spelling test yesterday – great job!  Here are today’s tasks, keep up the good work everyone!

English

Acrostics are a fun poetic form that anyone can write.  They have just a few simple rules, and this lesson will teach you how to create acrostic poems of your own. 

To begin with, an acrostic is a poem in which the first letters of each line spell out a word or phrase.  The word or phrase can be a name, a thing, or whatever you like.  Usually, the first letter of each line is a capital (this makes is easier to see the word spelled out vertically down the page). 

Acrostics are easy to write because they don’t need to rhyme, and you don’t need to worry about the rhythm of the lines.  Each line can be as long or as short as you want it to be. Watch this video to help:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwhdXU3KXg8

Write an acrostic poem for the word ‘SPRING’.  You can incorporate some of the spring ideas that you used in your sentences last week. I look forward to reading your spring acrostics. 

Spring Acrostic

 

Maths

Please continue yesterday’s work on division. Division is the process of taking a whole item or a set of items and splitting, or dividing, them into equal groups. When you use division, you are starting with a larger number, and breaking it into smaller, equal pieces. 

Click on the green link in the brackets, (Division). Watch the activity Powerpoint and work out the answer to the problems by drawing or using counters.  Write the calculations (number sentences) for 10 problems of your choice.

For example, this is how you could draw, work out the answer and write the calculation for the first problem:

Expanded Noun Phrase

Thinking about spring, I would like you to write some expanded noun phrases for these spring related nouns.  You could use an orange colouring pencil for the determiner, a green colouring pencil for the adjectives and a blue colouring pencil for the noun.  I have done the first one for you...

E N P Table

 

Maths

Arrays are columns and rows of objects that help count the total number of objects more efficiently. When objects are organised into columns and rows, it becomes easier to count the total number of objects.  In order to do this, you simply count the number of columns and the number of rows and multiply this number together.

Please watch this presentation arrays Arrays and then draw the arrays for these number sentences.

Today we are continuing with multiplication.  A multiplication array is simply an arrangement of rows or columns that matches a multiplication equation. You can make arrays out of objects or pictures, and you can use any sort of shape. For example, here are 3 different arrays that all show 3 × 4.

Good morning Explorers! I hope you all enjoyed your handwriting and multiplication tasks yesterday.  It has been so lovely receiving your emails and photos.  Here are today’s activities:

English

During your 1 hour of exercise today (or in the garden), please look out for signs of spring! For example; buds on the trees, flowers growing, birds making nests and maybe even some baby animals.  Take photos of what you find.  When you get home write about the 'spring things' that you saw (don’t forget to use adjectives in your sentences) and draw a picture to go with your writing.  For example:

On my walk today I saw a beautiful tall tree with pink blossoming buds on it. 

Blossom Tree

 

Maths

Today you are going to be finding out about multiplication as repeated addition.  Repeated addition is adding equal groups together. It is also known as multiplication.

Using your understanding of number bonds to 10, can you write the 11 different ways of making 100 (using 10’s numbers).  So if you know 6 + 4 = 10 then 60 + 40 = 100.  Please make a pick up pairs game for these numbers but instead of writing the numbers in numerals please can you write them in words? Here is an example, it has the number in numerals, the number in words and the number in diennes. Why don’t you give it a go?

Today I would like you to sing the alphabet!

Maths

Today you are going to create your own ‘Number Bonds to 10 Pick Up Pairs Game’. 

  1. First of all write down all the pairs of numbers that equal 10 in full number sentences (this is to check you know them all!)
  2. Then cut out 22 squares (about 5cm x 5cm).
  3. Next write a pair of numbers (that make 10) on two individual squares.  For example if you write 6 on one square you need to write 4 on another square.
  4. After that, write down all the other numbers bonds on the remaining squares.  Remember there are 11 different ways of making 10 so some numbers will be repeated.
  5. Finally, you are ready to play your very own ‘Number Bonds to 10 Pick Up Pairs Game’. Lay all of the squares face down and take in turns to turn over two cards – are they a pair of numbers that equal 10? If so, keep that pair and have another go.  If not, turn the squares over and it is the next persons go. 
  6. ENJOY THE GAME!
