Tuesday 16th June 2020

 

Hello Fantastic Foxes, thank you very much if you sent an email yesterday, it was lovely to hear from so many of you, if you have not had your reply yet I will be sending it today. We have had lots of super pictures to add to our display too! Well done everyone

 

Phonics / GPS

 

We have done lots of work over the last few days all about using apostrophes, first to show that something belongs to someone, and also in contractions, turning two words into one. The work that you have been sending to me has been super, so I think it is time for us to move on to homophones, these are words that sound the same but have different spellings, like

there       their      they’re

Your task for today is to make a homophone poster that shows the different spellings for words that sound the same. Here are some examples to help you.

 

Collective Worship

 

Today we are going to continue to think a little more about our brains, but first here are the answers to our brain quiz from yesterday.

  • Which fruit is a brain roughly the same size as? A melon
  • What does the brain have billions of?  Neurons
  • How many different lobes does a brain have? 4
  • Which two types of memory does your brain have? Long term and short term

 

How many did you know?

 

Our brains are amazing and without them, we would not be able to do all of the fantastic things we do. We would not be able to walk, talk, hear, smell or even breathe without it. The video in the link below shows us a little more about the parts of our brain, how it works and what it helps us to do. You could always make your own after watching it, think carefully about what thoughts and feelings you might add to yours.

Class Memories Task

Today for our task we are going to get creative, which I know you are all brilliant at! I have found another of the stories that we started our year with, this one is called ‘Mog on Fox night’ by Judith Kerr. Can you remember it? Follow this link to listen to it and see the pictures.

When you have read the story make a fox any way that you like, there are some ideas for you to look at. When you have made your fox ask your grown up for some help because you need to send a picture of you holding your creation so that I can add it your end of year report.
