'Farmer Duck'

 

This week we are looking at the story ‘Farmer Duck’ by Martin Waddell.

 

Yesterday, we looked at a plot point and we discussed and wrote about how the duck was feeling in the picture.

 

For today’s lesson please watch and listen to the video again (below)

and pause it at 1 mins 15 sec.

 

Take a look at a close-up picture of the story below.

Here you can see the duck crying with his friends in the barn.

 

Now, for this lesson we are going to look at the ‘asking’ lens for our discussion and writing.

 

 

For this lens I want you to think about what the other animals might ask the duck.

 

What would you ask your friend if they were upset?

How would you offer to help someone?

 

Talk about these questions and have a go at thinking of questions other animals might ask the duck.

 

Here are some examples:
 Are you ok?

  • Can we help you?
  • Do you want a hug?
  • What can we do?

 

Now…I’ve got a sentence in my head for this picture … my sentence is…

 

 “Are you ok Duck?” asked the hens.

***notice how I’ve used a question mark at the end of my question***

 

I would like you to have a go at using your phonics to write your own sentence about the picture thinking about the specific ‘asking’ lens.

 

Remember to use capital letters (at the start of your sentences), finger spaces and full stops (at the end of your sentences).

 

Don’t forget- your teachers need to see your work- so take a photo and upload it to Tapestry or send it to our year group email address: yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

'Farmer Duck'

 

This week we are looking at the story ‘Farmer Duck’ by Martin Waddell.

 

Yesterday, I asked you to listen and watch the video of the story and then draw a picture related to it and write a caption or simple sentence.

 

For today’s lesson please watch and listen to the video again (below)

and pause it at 0mins 26sec.

 

 

Take a look at a close-up picture of the story below.

Here you can see the duck with his head down, working hard in the farmyard.

 

Now, for this lesson we are going to look at the ‘feelings’ lens for our discussion and writing.

 

 

For this lens I want you to think about how the duck felt.

 

Do you think he was happy?

How do you think he was feeling?

 

Talk about these questions and have a go at writing different words to describe how the duck is feeling.

 

The duck was feeling….

 

Here are some examples:
- exhausted

  • - fed up
  • - weary
  • - drained

 

Now…I’ve got a sentence in my head for this picture … my sentence is…

 

 The duck felt unhappy and weary.

 

*notice how I’ve used two words and I’ve joined them together with the word ‘and’ *

 

I would like you to have a go at using your phonics to write your own sentence about the picture thinking about the specific ‘feelings’ lens.

 

Remember to use capital letters (at the start of your sentences), finger spaces and full stops (at the end of your sentences).

'So Good To Me'

 

This week we are looking at the music video ‘So Good To Me’ by Chris Malinchak.

 

Yesterday, we talked about how the giraffe felt to touch. My sentence was:

He felt so soft and warm.

 

For today’s lesson you can watch the music video again all the way to the end. 

 

Today in our writing activity we are going to be making and writing a ‘lost poster’!

 

We make lost posters to put around the neighbourhood when we have lost something or someone.

 

Take a look at my example of a lost poster for my dog, Bob.

 

 

So, I want you to create your very own lost poster for the giraffe.

 

On your poster please remember to include the following:

  • The heading: Lost Pet!
  • A picture of the giraffe
  • Have you seen …: the name of the animal and his name (you can make up your own name)
  • I really … (what you want to happen)
  • If you see him… (what someone needs to do if they see the giraffe)

 

Here is a simple drawing of a giraffe that you can copy when drawing your picture on your lost poster.

 

Remember, use your phonics to sound out words using your fingers and then have a go at writing the individual sounds. Try and remember to leave finger spaces in between your words too.

 

Don’t forget- your teachers would love to see your work- so take a photo and upload it to Tapestry or send it to our year group email address: yr@anglesey.bham.sch.uk

'The Extraordinary Gardener'

 

This week we are looking at the story ‘The Extraordinary Gardener’ by Sam Boughton.

 

Yesterday, we looked at the picture at the end of the story where the colourful plants made the outside world look beautiful.

 

For today’s lesson you can watch the video of the story again all the way to the end.

 

Today in our writing activity we are going to be writing instructions for growing plants.

 

Plants, like humans, need certain things to grow and flourish.

They need soil, water, food, space and sunlight.

 

Think about the steps that you would need to take to grow a plant and write them down.

Re-watch the video if that helps and below is my example of instructions of how to grow plants.

 

Remember, use your phonics to sound out words using your fingers and then have a go at writing the individual sounds. Try and remember capital letters and leave finger spaces in between your words too.

'The Extraordinary Gardener'

 

This week we are looking at the story ‘The Extraordinary Gardener’ by Sam Boughton.

 

Yesterday, I asked you to imagine you were Joe and explain what he would say that he wanted his world to look like (by using the picture for clues).

And this is the sentence I came up with:

 “I want the world to have beautiful plants!” exclaimed Joe.

 

For today’s lesson please watch and listen to the video again (below)

and pause it at 3mins 59sec.

 

Take a look at a close-up picture of the story below.

Here you can see something in Joe’s hand. What is it? Do you know?

Yes, that’s right! It’s an apple pip!

 

Now, for this lesson we are going to look at the ‘touching’ lens for our discussion and writing.

 

I want you to look at the pip. What do you think it feels like? Maybe you have an apple at home? Ask a grownup to cut the apple and you can pick out a pip and see how it feels to touch it- almost like you are acting out the story as Joe.

 

It is wet or dry? Is it rough or smooth? Is it hard or soft?

 

Talk about these questions and have a go at writing words about what the pip feels like to touch.

 

The pip feels ………….

 

Here are some examples:
- hard
- smooth
- wet

- firm

- solid.

 

Now…I’ve got a sentence in my head for this picture … my sentence is…

 

The apple pip felt hard in Joe’s hand.

 

Maybe you can come up with your own verbal sentence to explain what the pip felt like in Joe’s hand.

 

You could even have a go at using your phonics to write your own sentence about the picture.

Remember to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

Here are some examples:
- beautiful plants
- huge flowers

'The Hug'

 

This week we are looking at the story ‘The Hug’ by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar.

 

Yesterday, I asked you to describe how you thought the tortoise’s shell felt.

Tortoise’s shell felt hard and ridged.

 

For today’s lesson you can watch both videos (below) again all the way to the end.

 

The characters showed their love for each other in the story by hugging. Another way we can show our love for our loved ones is to tell them…. So…. 

 

Today in our writing activity we are going to be making and writing

a valentine’s day card!

 

As I said before, we write and send valentine’s day cards to people that are important to us to tell them that we love them.

 

Here is a picture of the front of a valentine’s day card. Can you see the beautiful hearts on the front?

 

You can make your own card by taking a piece of paper and folding it in half.

Maybe you could draw a heart on the front and colour it red?- or use different colours if you would prefer.

 

 

Now inside your card you will need to do some writing.

 

You will need to include:

  • To …. (who the card is for)
  • Happy Valentine’s Day
  • I love you because … (write here why you love them)
  • End the letter with ‘Lots of love from … (your name)

 

Here is an example of a valentine’s card that Miss Lee wrote to her Mum and Dad

 

 

Remember, use your phonics to sound out words using your fingers and then have a go at writing the individual sounds.

Try and remember to leave finger spaces in between your words too.

'Six Dinner Sid'

 

This week we are looking at the story ‘Six Dinner Sid’ by Inga Moore.

 

 

Yesterday, we talked and wrote about how Sid searched for a new home.

 

For today’s lesson you can watch the whole video if you would like. (See below)

 

 

So today for our writing activity, we are going to be having a go at writing an apology letter.

An apology letter is when you write to someone to say sorry.

 

I would like you to pretend that you are Sid.

He knew that the neighbours were cross and upset with him when they found out that he had been going to all of the houses for dinner and fuss.

 

How do you think he feels?

 

Yes, I think he feels embarrassed and sorry for what he has done.

Use these ideas in your letter.

 

In your letter you can include these things:

  • Say sorry
  • What you will do/ won’t do next time
  • What you hope will happen in the future

 

 

Here is my example of an apology letter from Sid to the neighbours:

 

Also, make sure that you start your letter with ‘To’ and finish off your letter with ‘From’.

This week we are looking at the story ‘Six Dinner Sid’ by Inga Moore.

 

 

Yesterday, we talked and wrote about what Sid’s new food tasted like.

 

For today’s lesson please watch and listen to the video again (below)

Take a look at a close-up picture of the story below.

Here you can see Sid searching for a new home.

 

Now, for this lesson we are going to look at the ‘action’ lens for our discussion and writing.

 

I want you to look at the picture of Sid again. Look at how he is searching for a new home.

What is he doing to look for a new home? He is looking, that’s right.

But can you think of any other words to describe how he is searching?

 

Talk about your ideas and have a go at writing some of them down.

Sid did what to find a new home?

Sid…

 

Here are some examples:
- looked
- searched
-hunted

-investigated.

 

Now…I’ve got a sentence in my head for this picture … my sentence is…

 

Sid searched for a new home.

 

Maybe you can come up with your own verbal sentence to describe what he did to find a new home/place to live.

'Bridge'

 

This week we are looking at the animation ‘Bridge’ by Disney Pixar.

 

Yesterday, we talked the sound the moose and bear made when they hit the ground.

They fell to the ground with a crash.

 

For today’s lesson you can finish watching the animation. -see the video below.

 

 

Today in our writing activity we are going to be writing a list of rules.

 

We have rules to make sure that people stay safe and to make sure they don’t do things they are not meant to do.

 

Below is an example of a list of some of our classroom rules:

(You can talk about these and why we have them with your family.)

 

 

So today, I don’t want you to write a list of classroom rules, I want you to write a list of rules that the animals (the moose and the bear) need to follow to cross the bridge safely.

 

First of all- think about what the bear and the moose did wrong- what should they have done so that they didn’t get cross with each other? How would you walk across the bridge safely?

 

Discuss your ideas with your family and grown ups and then have a go at writing your list!

 

Here is my example:

 

Remember, use your phonics to sound out words using your fingers and then have a go at writing the individual sounds. Try and remember to leave finger spaces in between your words too.

I want you to look at the bear and the moose. The bridge has fallen down- so what do you think will happen to them?- That’s right… they are going to fall down to the ground.

But what noise will they make when they land on the ground?

Will they gently fall to the ground like a feather and land quietly and softly?

No, of course they wouldn’t! They are heavy animals- so what sort of noise will they make when they land?

 

Talk about these questions and have a go at writing words about what sort of noise they would make when they land below.

 

They fell with a  …
