This is the mission possible homework booklet for Chestnut class. The home learning activities are linked to areas of mission that we are focusing on in class to help develop their skills in different areas of the curriculum.
What we've been doing this week
In Mission we have stated off by looking at some family festival clips so that all children have basic knowledge of what a festival is and what it entails. We then started to develop our knowledge through 3 rotating activities.
Activity 1: The children choose an adjective to describe a festival.They then write this adjective in bubble writing on their A3 card and design their own festival in the letters using the visual aids on the table.
Activity 2: The children are to order cards that have information and years of different festivals on them in chronological order. They are to use these to create their own information cards and place them on their own timeline to show the history of festivals.
Activity 3: After watching the video of a festival the children are to write a descriptive piece of writing to describe what a festival is like and to draw an image to go with this.
In Maths we have been looking at number sequences playing different group games to work out missing number patterns. Our favorite activity of the week was the one where as a group the children chose a card which told them to add or subtract a 2 digit number for example -40 and a number to start with for example 260. The children would then go round each person on the table and they would have to say/write what their number would be, taking away 40 each time. Once the children all had the correct number they would write their number sentence in their book then choose a new card.
In English we are looking at recounts. We watched a clip of a cartoon called 'Little Bill' and this clip showed him going camping- linked to our Mission of festivals. The children watched the clip and took down notes about what happened in the video. We discussed if we needed to note down every single thing that happened or if we just needed to include some points and discussed why. We have then began using these notes to draft our own recount of what we watched as if we were Little Bill going camping.
In SPaG we have been looking at suffixes, recapping what a suffix is, finding examples and looking at the rules of adding suffixes which the last letter of a word is a vowel/a consonant.
In PE we have been hard at work practicing our sprinting, egg and spoon race and the sack race for sports day next week
