We are learning about toys today compared to toys from the 1960s. How are they the same? How are they different? The children’s grandparents will have played with toys in the 1960s. Please can children communicate with grandparents and ask them to recall their favourite toys. Can children prepare some questions for grandparents such as ‘How are toys different? How are toys the same?’. Watch this video (1960s only).
In science we have been learning about materials, their names, where they come from, how to describe them and their properties. Last week in school we investigated absorbent and not absorbent. We also investigated floats and sinks. This week (16th November) we are investigating magnetic and not magnetic. Find a selection of objects made from different metals. Take a magnet and test the magnetism of each object. Record your findings on this sheet.

Welcome back! We hope that you have had a lovely week of relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. Are you ready for some more home learning? Don’t forget to send in some of your fantastic English and Maths work each week.
Week Commencing 18th May 2020
We hope you have all enjoyed a sunny bank holiday week end.
We are going to start the next phase of Talk for Writing today, if you are a day behind due to Fridays bank holiday, then start this new plan on Tuesday.
Here begins three weeks of non-fiction writing. An explanation text (sometimes called information texts) is a non-fiction text that explains how something works or why something happens.
For the independent hot write at the end of the three weeks your child could write about anything that interests them, explaining how it works or why something happens. We have used examples of British Wildlife to link to our topic.
Week Commencing 4th May 2020
Please find below some work for you to look at with your child at home this week. There is quite a lot, so please do what is right for your child. Please don’t feel pressured to complete everything. If you can, please send in one piece of English and Maths. Thank you.
Help to understand the Talk for Write sequence.
Last week your children and you worked through the first stages of the Talk for Writing sequence of learning. You learned the actions to the model text and wrote some short burst writing. Then you wrote most of the Innovate stages.
This week you can complete the Innovate story by writing the last section, the ending. Take some time to appreciate the completed story. Parents read it to your child. Children read it to an audience.
Next stage is where you plan the Independent story using the Boxing Up planning sheet attached. The final stage is writing the Independent story, (using the planning you will have done) which is also called the Hot Write (the child’s very own story). So, by Friday you will have completed a whole sequence of Talk for Writing ☺.
You could plan the Independent story and then do a Hot Tell instead of a Hot Write. Or a combination of writing and telling. A Hot Tell is where the children tell their story aloud, instead of writing it. This is a very valuable literacy skill in itself.
