For your English work this week we would like you to read this story 'Possum Magic' by Mem Fox to help you with different and interesting tasks! Here is a link to the story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsmRJ3v457o
Monday: Listen to the story a couple of times so you know what happens. When Hush wants to be seen again, she starts to eat lots of delicious food to reverse the magical power. Can you spot any Australian food in the story? Create an exciting poster all about food you might find in Australia! See if you can discover any more Australian food that isn’t in the story. Start having a think about which one of these foods you would like/will be able to make at home for your next task…
Tuesday: Why don’t you have another listen of the video to remember the story? Become a story teller in your house and try and re-telling the story to your parents, siblings or teddies! Today we would like you to have a go at making an Australian food. Miss West likes the look of fairy bread that she found online! You will need to use all those amazing cooking skills you learnt from our ‘Food Glorious Food’ topic. While you are cooking, you could take some pictures of the different stages and ingredients as this will help you with tomorrow's activity. If you aren’t able to make any food, why don’t you research the food you have chosen and draw some pictures of what you would have liked it to look like? You could still write a list of the ingredients you would need and could make it another time.
Wednesday: Now you have made your delicious food, why don’t you have a go at writing your very own instructions to make it. You can use the recipe you used to help you. I want you to make it interesting and easy to follow. Think back to when we last made our recipes for our fruit pots! Can you remember using time adverbials? Here’s a video to remind you what they are. Have a go at using one in each instruction, as well as a super adjective! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seaeluxIsqw
Thursday: Have a think about Grandma Possum’s magical powers. If you could choose a magical power, what would it be? Can you use some interesting adjectives to describe your power? Can you use your conjunctions to explain why you would choose that magical power? Imagine you are looking in the water at your reflection just like Hush, draw a picture of yourself and your magical power to show me how wonderful it would be!
Friday: Now you have created your magical powers, can you think about what adventures it might take you on? Think about Grandma Poss and Hush’s adventure to inspire you! You can present this in any way that you want. You could write a short story or maybe even set it out like a comic strip through drawing. Here’s an example of a comic strip to help you…
In science this term we were going to be studying 'animals including humans' in Year 2 and 'weather in the UK' in year 1.
Year 2 - This week we are looking at the human life cycle, understanding that animals, including humans develop and change from birth to adulthood. To start this session think about the things that have changed about yourself already since you were born, perhaps your parents have some photos you could look at to observe the changes that have happened to you already. Maybe your parents have some photos of themselves, or even your grandparents that you could look at to understand the different stages of a human life cycle.
Click on this link to watch a video about the stages of the human life cycle: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zgssgk7/articles/z2msv4j
Attached below is a powerpoint about the human life cycle, read through this to help you understand the changes and events that happen during each stage of our lives. For your independent work, can you draw and label a human life cycle? For an extension task you could add some information to your drawing to explain some of the things that happen at each stage.
Science - Year 1
This week we are continuing to think about weather and weather patterns. In this session we are looking at weather forecasts. Use the slides attached below to find out about how weather forecasts are created and used to help people know what the weather is going to be like in the coming days. This is important as it means we can be prepared for what is to come and will be able to dress and plan our days according to the weather. For your activity this week we would like you to have a go at creating weather forecast video for a family member or friend who doesn't live with you! You could make some weather symbols on paper and cut them out to use in your video then send them your forecast so they know what the weather is going to be like the next day where they live. You can use this website: www.bbc.co.uk/weather to find out what the weather is going to be doing in their area to help you plan your forecast. Don't forget to tell them what kinds of clothes they might need and the sorts of activities they could be getting up to in the weather that they will be having!
In Geography this week we are looking at the weather and climate in Australia. Now, this is very different depending on which part of Australia you are in, so in this lesson we are going to focus on two places; Darwin, which is in the North of Australia and Hobart which is on Tasmania to the very south of Australia. Use the slides attached below to find out all of the information that you need. Once you have read through the slides, can you create a poster, fact file or piece of writing that explains and compares the weather and climates in these two different places? Remember to use the slides to help you find your information!
In art this week we continue our journey into aboriginal art work. Hopefully you enjoyed using Aboriginal symbols to tell stories last week! This week we are looking at using Aboriginal 'naturalistic' style to create paintings. Aboriginal people used lots of natural colours to create images and paintings such as browns, greens and earthy tones. They used to draw the skeltons and features of animals in great detail to show that they understood the natural world around them. This week the slides are going to tell you a new Aboriginal story about a Barramundi, which is a type of fish! Your activity this week is to have a go at drawing a barramundi in great detail, including its bones and fins. You might want to look on the internet for some pictures to help you. When you have drawn your detailed fish, use pencils, paints or any other media to colour your picture in an Aboriginal style using natural tones only.
This week we are continuing our journey in Judaism by learning about how the Torah is used by Jewish people in life today. Here is a video about the Torah to introduce the learning: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zw9jxnb
Below are the slides for this session which explain a little more about the Torah, what it contains and why it is special to Jewish people.
For your task in this session we would like you to answer the following questions, you could do this by writing the answers, you could make a poster to explain the answers or you could do a video interview where your parent asks you the questions and you say the answers!
- What is the Torah?
- What does the Torah look like?
- Where do Jewish people read the Torah?
- Why do Jewish people use a silver pointer when reading the Torah?
- Why is the Torah special to Jewish people?
In music this week we would like you to take a look at this video of an Aboriginal dance show in Australia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhyKsEn6_So
Watch the video with your parents or family and talk about what you see and hear. How does it compare to dance as we know it in our culture? What do you like about it? What instruments are they using to create the music that they are dancing to? Do you notice that the dancers have painted themselves using cross hatching, jsut like we learnt about in art two weeks ago! Maybe you could have a go at creating your own dance to some aboriginal music and paint some cross hatching patterns on your face - if you have face paints of course!
