Welcome to Kingfisher Class 2019 - 2020

Summer Term - Wacky Races

We will now be setting a week's work at a time, following national schemes, and the school office will respond to emails whilst we are both back teaching year 1s in the classroom. We aim to look at your completed work every Friday so please send in photographs of any work you are especially proud of (office@kingfield.surrey.sch.uk).

The Wildlife Trust is running a '30 Days Wild' campaign throughout June and we have signed Kingfishers up to access the materials. Enjoy the resources on offer at https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/30-days-wild-schools-pack

If you would like some more paper activities then have a look at this KS1 Booklet. It is over 100 pages long and packed with ideas - choose a few pages to print out. The answers are in this document but have a go yourself first! Dont forget to have some breaks from your learning and do some exercise. In class we love the song 'Popsico' but take a look at Go Noodle and try something new!

Science:


Here is a link to some BBC bitesize videos looking at the Science topics you have covered in Year 1 and Year 2 – they’re a good resource to recap your learning.


https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/science-ks1-explain-this/zn9dwty


We’ve looked particularly at:
The Human Body,


Keeping my Body Healthy,


Animal Life Cycles,


The Food Chain and


Plan Life Cycles.


Could you make a poster about one of the topics in the videos? Perhaps showing the lifecycle of an animal (remember the work we did in class about butterflies and frogs?), or telling people about what they need to do to look after their bodies and keep themselves healthy?

again, half, parents, break, steak


 


Write them out 3 times each, making sure there are clear ascenders, descenders and joined handwriting.

Monday 4th May


Just a reminder – the whole week’s planning is available for you to view in the menu below.


For English this week we’re trialling the use of Oak National Academy Resources – this is the national Academy that has been set up to support teachers and families during school closures. There are no accounts/logins required! To access the sessions your child will need a device to watch the video on each day (usually 20-30mins long), and ideally a notebook and pen/pencil. For some sessions they’ll need the previous day’s work handy, so having it all within a notebook would be easiest, or if it’s on separate pieces of paper, perhaps staple them or treasury tag them together to keep them safe.


VE Day Tasks:


Here are a couple of voluntary tasks for the week - on a VE day theme!


We thought you'd like to try some code-breaking! Click on the link to download the task ... let's see how many of you can write a message for others to de-code! 


Here are some texts for reading, with some comprehension questions. The texts are similar, but differing in difficulty. The ones with one star at the bottom of the page are easier, and the ones with three stars at the bottom are trickier.


Maths


Attached is a PowerPoint (and the same file saved as a PDF if that’s easier for some) to work through. It is using our familiar resources that we’d be using it class, so shouldn’t seem to daunting!


English


The link to the first session is: https://www.thenational.academy/year-2/english/the-firework-makers-daughter-to-retrieve-information-year-2-wk1-1 . The video is 18 minutes long, and you’ll need a piece of paper and a pencil to write with. The unit of work is based around a book by Philip Pullman – The Firework Maker’s Daughter. You don’t need a copy of the book – it’s shared in the video to follow along with.


Tuesday 5th May


We're loving the photos coming in - Check out the message below sent in by Emma, written in Morse Code:



You're very welcome to send through a reply to be put up here!

Maths


We have learnt a little about metres and centimetres in school. Use a ruler or tape measure to help you make a metre rule - remember this is 100cm long. How can you do this if you have a 10 cm ruler at home?  Use string or paper stuck together to make your 1metre rule.


Then find 3 things around the house that measure 1 metre.


Think!  Could a double decker bus fit in your lounge? But .... would you be able to get it through the door?


Try the challenges on this Mastery sheet.



Literacy


Look at this Summer Term Spellings Sheet which lists our spellings for the term and use each of the words in the first column to write a sentence. Don't forget capitals letters and full stops!  Can you make the sentence more interesting by using a connective (and, so, but, because) ? If you do not know the meaning of a word then look it up in a dictionary.

Maths


Today we are going to carry on with our measuring but this time looking at weight.


You will need an adult to help you with this problem and something that weighs 1 kilo (a bag of sugar or 1 litre of water) - Ten to the Kilo


If you tried the measuring activities yesterday can you remember how many centimetres make 1 metre?


You might be able to try this challenge on your own - Jack's Amazing Beanstalk



Geography


Lets try something different today and draw a map. Get out your crayons, felt tips or paints (if allowed) and draw a map of your surrounding area. Can you include key features such as roads, schools, churches and parks.


Use a key with symbols if you can.


Think!  Do people or cars appear on maps?


Next - can you write clues to lead someone from your house to school using left, right, clockwise/anticlockwise turns and the key symbols?


Maths


More measuring but this time looking at capacity and volume. Have some fun with water and various sized containers outside or in the bath but check with an adult first to make sure you are safe.


Work through the Power of Maths slide (1) and slide (2) to think about the meaning of the words capacity and volume - they use popcorn, rice and tea to help you think about comparing measures.


Literacy


We all support Woking Football Club and maybe know all about their team and games! If not take a look at their website (https://www.wokingfc.co.uk/history/) and then write a factfile of the club, their team, last game and/or their history. Use this template to help record your 5 favourite facts. Try to use some adjectives in your writing so that the factfile is interesting to read.

Maths


Today we will practise telling the time. 


Remember the big hand reads the minutes and the small hand reads the hours. We can tell the time to half past, quarter past and quarter to the hour in school. Here is a powerpoint to help remind us. 


New learning for us is counting the minute hand around in 5 minutes increments. 


Go around the house and see if you can find all the clock faces (analogue displays) and digital clocks.


Can you read the times?


Can you draw a clock face with these times?  1.15pm, 3.30pm, 5,45pm 9.05pm and 11. 25pm

Science


This term we’d be starting to look at different materials. Ask your child to call out all the different materials they can see around the room. Ask them to state why they think different objects are made from different materials (e.g.  ĽA table is made from wood because wood is strong’). See what different materials you can gather - samples of wood, different metals, plastic, glass, brick, rock, paper, tissue paper, cardboard, rubber, different fabrics, catalogues, magazines and forks made out of plastic, metal and wood. Can they identify pairs they think are similar and why? On Active learn I’ve allocated a ‘Spot the Difference’ https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/resource/282290 activity.

It’s great to see that some of you continued logging into Doodle, Times Tables Rock Stars or Spelling Shed over the break – well done to Aaron, Arthur, Aurelia, Babak, Emma, Grace, Issy, Maggie, Oliver, Rumaysa, Sam and Skyler J Extra house points once we’re back! If you’ve not yet logged in to any of them, please do have a look. Parents – their quite easy to navigate, but we’re happy to send over extra guidance if you want it – just ask!

Maths


Did anyone try any of the WhiteRose Maths Easter Fun activities? https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/easter-fun/ feel free to let us know!


We’d like you to recap some multiplication and division this week. To the side are snips from resources we’d use in class. Using arrays to create and solve multiplication problems. Please do have a look, and then perhaps see if you can arrange something into an array? Some toy cars? Magnets from the fridge? If you can write the multiplication to go with it, that would be even better – do take a photo and send it to us!


 


English 


Today we’d like to you write a thank you letter. This could be to someone who’s given you something recently (an Easter Egg perhaps?), someone who’s helped you/your family (the postman?) or even to a toy! Remember how we start letters? Dear xxx . And remember to put who it’s from at the end. You can type your letter if you’d like, or write it on some paper. Whichever is easier for you.

WOW! We’ve been sent some super photos of fantastic learning – it’s lovely seeing what you’ve been up to! We’ll be putting some of them on here tomorrow to help inspire you.


 


There was also some wonderful online learning happening yesterday – I noticed logins on Doodle Maths from Arthur, Aurelia, Babak and Emma, Naia, Oliver, Rumaysa, Scarlett and Sophia. Our Times Table Rockstars yesterday were Johann, Arthur, Sam, Scarlett, Naia and Taylor. I’m really glad to see some of you still logging in to ActiveLearn – well done Rumaysa, Arthur, Johann, Aurelia, Sophia, Scarlett, Oliver and Skyler!



Maths


Carrying on with the multiplication and division today, you’ve got a maths task in Purple Mash waiting for you! In ActiveLearn you’ve also all been set up with MathsFactor activities – have a play! If the activities on MathsFactor seem too tricky or too easy, let us know. We can adjust them for each individual child.


 


English


Today I’ve set a task on Purple Mash. It’s called Rainy Day – look for a picture of a lady with a rain cloud above her! It’s looking at different conjunctions (linking words) and where to use them. Words like and, then, because, so, if etc. I look forward to seeing the work pop into my folder as you complete it!

Well done to Arthur, Sam, Naia, Emma, Maggie, Skyler, Scarlett, Aurelia, Johann, Taylor and Hugo who have all ‘handed in’ some maths work on Purple Mash – there’s more there for you now!


 


Later today I’m planning on setting up a Times Tables Rock Stars battle – it will be just our class, but with two houses playing against the other two houses …. Keep an eye on it!


 


Maths


You’ve got some maths activities waiting in Purple Mash today – all based on multiplication and division. Some are questions to answer, and some are games … try doing as many different ones as you can!


 


English


In Purple Mash you’ve got a task writing about different materials ‘Which Materials’ with a picture of a knife, fork, spoon and pencil. Please choose a picture from the ClipArt board on the right, then write a description of that material. Is it hard, soft, bendy, see through, solid, man-made, natural etc.? Try and do 3 different pictures and descriptions!


 


It’s also Earth Day today – why not see if you can create some artwork based on natural materials? Have a look at the picture below for some ideas.


Well done to Arthur, Sam, Naia, Emma, Maggie, Skyler, Scarlett, Aurelia, Johann, Taylor and Hugo who have all ‘handed in’ some maths work on Purple Mash – there’s more there for you now!



Maths


Today we’re going St George’s Day themed! Below is a PDF with a problem to solve .. the case of the missing sword! The file is a PDF, so you can either print it, or of you don’t have a printer, you can open it with Adobe PDF Reader (Free, official software) and then you can click ‘fill and sign’. This allows you to type text onto the document. Give it a go!


English


Have a look at the story powerpoint (also copied into a PDF) below. Once you’ve read the story, there’s a writing task on Purple Mash waiting for you!


 


Earth Day


Did anyone manage to make anything 'Earth Day' based? If so, send in a photo!

Firstly, please accept my apologies for yesterday’s English task mix-up… Mrs Watts and I have been in school ‘on duty’ this week, as well as keeping the website up to day. Add in some laptop issues, and it resulted in yesterday’s glitch, sorry! The laptop issues meant I also wasn’t receiving emails on Wed or most of yesterday, so I’m on catch –up. If you’ve emailed through the office, I’m aiming to reply today.


Next we wanted to say how lovely it was to speak to some of you yesterday. We’re glad to hear that most of the children are enjoying the activities and seeing their pictures on the website.


Lastly, as we mentioned in most of the calls yesterday, we are hoping to get some new paper-based work packs out to you. Keep an eye out for an email from the office explaining how we intend to get these to you. 


Wow – so many of you logged into Doodle Maths today – well done! We noticed: Hugo, Oliver, Aurelia, Arthur, Emma, Harry, Callum, Maggie, Scarlett, Rumaysa, Skyler and Issy. SUPER!


 


I’m also loving the work coming in through Purple Mash – when you log in you should notice a little alert icon near the top (a purple bell, along from the ‘to do icon’. Click on this, and hopefully you can see my comments on work that you’ve been submitting!


 


Maths


Today we’ve set another ‘extra’ on Doodle Maths for you. Still linked to our multiplying and dividing that we’ve been working on this week.


 


English


Today it’s a reading focus. Below are some reading comprehensions based on St George’s Day. The pages look similar, but they are differentiated. The first is slightly easier (with one star at the bottom of the page) up to the three-star version which is a little trickier. There’s also a familiar looking word search for the children if they wanted something a little different.


 


Music


If you’d like something different to mix up your day/weekend, have a look at the https://www.kingfield.surrey.sch.uk/parents/curriculum/music page. It’s got some suggestions of great resources you can tap into.

Each Day:

Fantastic doodling on Doodle!  Aurelia, Sam and Babak - great work :)


Maths – This week’s learning is all about addition and subtraction. Remember we have lots of strategies to help us. Have a go at the Eggs worksheet in our Home Learning Pack to practise splitting numbers into tens and ones.


Next try the Spring Mosaic worksheet to reveal the hidden picture. Think! What strategies did you use? (Number bonds, adding tens and then ones, drawing a number line)


English – On Purple Mash a ‘to do’ has been set for you called Dinosaur Factfile. Use all the learning we have done in class to create your own factfile. Try dinosaurs like Spinosaurus, Oviraptor or Megalosaurus!


Well done those of you that are Times Tables Rock Stars! Grace, Hugo, Taylor and Oliver :)


Fantastic doodling on Doodle!  Emma, Issy, Jesse and Scarlett - fabulous effort!


Search for dinosaurs in your Purple Mash account to find lots of great learning and activities.


Maths – Also in Purple Mash, the game Bond Bubbles has been set as a ‘to do’. Can you use your bonds to 20 to help work through the first games?


Don’t forget we have been learning to tell the time to quarter past and quarter to the hour. What time will lunch be or TV time or bedtime? Can you draw a clock face with hands and also write this time in digital?


English – Oops! There are 15 mistakes in this sentence! Can you rewrite it and make all the corrections please?


i am gowing to tell you about mi weekend it all startd on saterday wen mi little sister sally jumpt on mi bed


Easter is nearly here. Use the letters in EASTER to write an acrostic poem. Use felt tips or crayons to add Easter pictures.

Well done those of you that are Times Tables Rock Stars! Can you beat Arthur who has more than 22,000 lifetime coins!


Go Doodle – great job Aurelia, Arthur, Issy, Johann, Oliver, Scarlett, Skyler and Sophia.


Maths – Can you add 10 to these numbers? 7, 12, 40, 67 and 89


Now try adding 9. Next try adding 11.


So 7 + 10 =


      7 + 9 =


      7 + 11 =


What do you notice? How can adding 10 help you to work out the answers for adding 9 or 11?


Also, have some fun on Doodle Maths!

Maths - Please follow the link and complete the activities https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-2/. This is consolidating our work on fractions that we’ve been doing over the last few weeks. There are lesson videos and then activities to do. Either you and your child can talk through the activity questions, or you can give them some paper and ask them to write/draw their answers as we would at school. Why not let them set you some fractions challenges? Find half of the chocolate bar? 3/4 of the apple? We've also allocated an 'extra' on DoodleMaths (log in details are on the back of the yellow card). This is about turning clockwise/anticlockwise using fractions, eg, turn 1/4 to the left. https://students.doodlemaths.com/


English – Listen to the story ‘Monkey Puzzle’ by Julia Donaldson on You Tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgeKHjLSQUM. Concentrate on the ‘ey’ sound in monkey. Discuss the habitat of monkeys.


Write sentences such as the ones below using words that have the ee, ea or ey sounds in them.


 A monkey lives up in the trees. The leaves are big and green. A monkey can swing from branch to branch looking for food.


 Explain that in this story there are lots of descriptions of animals. Describe an animal without using its name. Write clues such as


I have 4 legs.


I can purr.


I have sharp teeth and I can pounce!


I have orange and black fur.


I am a …..?


See if a member of the family can guess the animal being described.

WELL DONE to those of you who logged into one of our websites yesterday!

English – Listen to the story ‘Monkey Puzzle’ by Julia Donaldson on You Tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgeKHjLSQUM again. 


Discuss with your child that in the story many questions are asked to find out about the characteristics of Monkey’s Mum, eg How big is she? She coils around trees? She has legs?


Find a picture of an animal without your child seeing it (Have it on your phone, or turn to a page in a book with an animal on).


Ask your child to write down good questions to ask to find out the animal your hiding. A bit like playing 20 questions, but writing the questions down! 


eg What do you eat?


How many legs do you have?


Where do you live?


Do you have fur?


Can you fly?


They do all know what question marks are, but often need reminding to use them!


Well done for those that accessed some of our online resources on Tuesday – I can see that Rumaysa, Sam, Babak, Arthur, Aaron, Skyler and Issy have all be playing Times Tables Rock Stars … there’s now a proper competition between the students and the teachers! I wonder how many of you can join in and try to beat us?


Our top Doodle Mathematicians were Aurelia, Scarlett and Oliver – well done!


Maths - Today, why don’t you try out some of the activities in your home learning pack we sent home? There’s a Spring Maths activity booklet in there, with many different tasks to complete. Perhaps try a page or two?


EnglishIn Purple Mash we’ve set a ‘2Do’ item called ‘Toy Shelf’. We’ve done lots of work on sentence types in class – in this activity children sort the sentences into whether they are a statement, command, question or exclamation. Encourage children to read them out loud and look at the punctuation clues. Children can then try writing their own 4 sentences, one of each type.

It’s good to see more of you playing on Times Table Rock Stars yesterday – well done to Taylor, Oliver, Johann, Skyler, Arron, Scarlett, Harry, Arthur and Lily!

Play ‘would you rather’ – questions like ‘Would you rather get ¼ or 1/3 of a chocolate bar?’ ‘Would you rather have ¾ or 4/5 of the apple?’ ‘How many sections in the orange? If I ate 4 of those, what fraction have I eaten?’.
