Week 5 Summer Learning
Hello Chestnut Class and welcome back to a brand new week of online learning. It's been great to have received work from you showing us what you have been learning at home. We hope you have enjoyed seeing everyones pictures as we celebrate all our successes. In the video to the side you will find more lovely activities you have kindly shared with us. Enjoy. Please remember we don't expect you to be teachers for your children at home. All we ask is that you provide the time and resources for your children to be able to access these tasks. Remember that we are always here if you need to email us to ask questions.

Make A Wrap Around Hug For Someone Special!
If you would like to make one of these for someone special who you have not seen but have missed, then scroll down to the PSHCE section and you will find all you need to do to make one. You can write any message you like. This message was sent to my daughter from her best friend.
New book for your thoughts and opinions.
As we share our stories with you on our Youtube channels we would love to hear your thoughts on them. This link takes you to Chestnut Class' padlet where you can share your thoughts or questions on the books we read. It is particularly good for commenting on our chapter books. The other children in our class can read your commnets and reposnd to them or "like" them.
Once you follow the link below, just click on the add symbol, type your child's name and the story you're watching (or let them see if they can type) in the 'Title' section, then type your child's story thoughts in the box that says 'write something'. Once you've done that, click anywhere on the screen and it will pop your thought up.
Things you could comment on:
- What you like or dislike about the story.
- What words or phrases you thought were brilliant.
- How you felt about the characters.
- Did it remind you of any other stories?
There is a tab at the top of the page that says tablet where you will be able to find this link during the coming weeks,

As usual continue to play games from www.phonicsplay.co.uk
Year 1 to focus on games from Phase 5
Year 2- Click on phase 6 and scroll to bottom for spelling games.
Year 1 phonics ( also useful for Year 2 to brush up on their sounds) As a continuation of last weeks work, The Dept of Education has set up a series of phonics lessons on YouTube based on Letters and Sounds which many schools use to teach phonics. It has been set up for parents to use at home with their children.
Most of our children will know most if not all of the sounds already but it is always a great idea to refresh and practise them on a daily basis so that they become embedded and automatic.
We really hope it is helpful to you all. It is honestly quite straightforward and key to children continuing to become fluent readers.
Below are the lessons for this week.
Ew as in grew
U-e as in tube
E as in we
Aw as in claw
Ir as in bird
Continue to work on practising the high frequency words that were given at the start of the home-learning packs. When you have started to recite them all you can begin to move on to the following spelling activities.
Year 2 will be spelling words ending in ly. (It is a bit of revision so that you feel totally confident with it.)
Year 1 will be spelling plurals s or es endings. (It is a bit of revision so that you feel totally confident with it.)

|Year 1 Plurals 's' or 'es'.||[pdf 124KB]|

This is fiction but the story weaves in and out of real paintings from several famous artists. There will be a section each day with some artists in each.
We would really like to hear which artist you liked the most and why. We would also like to know which ones your didn't like and why.
Why not choose one of the artists each day and try to paint or draw in their style. Do remember to send in your pictures so I can post them up on the webpage for your class to see.
At the end, choose one of the artists and find out about them. Where they were from, when they painted, where they lived, what style their work was called? Also, find some other paintings and artworks by them. You will need your parents help with this to help you find some of the information.
Then write a fact file about them.
There are some initial links below to start you off.

This weeks English work is from the Talk for Writing website by Pie Corbett. Pie has been working with children for many many years and is resposible for the radio blogging work that happens every morning at 9:30. If you haven't visited the radio blogging site then please do. Many of our children at school are visitors every day and are posting work for us to see and comment on. Their work is sometimes read out to all the listeners and other teachers and pupils can also read and comment on work. Its a fantastic opportunity for children to improve their writing and become part of something greater during this isolating time. The link below will take you staright to the site and Miss Hall has posted a video on her page about how to use the website.
I have attached the talk for writing documents below for your English this week. It is a booklet to work through based on a story. Year 1 and 2 have different stories and activities so please choose the most apppropriate one.

The White Rose maths home learning has changed and you now have to have a subscription to access the resources. Our school has already paid for this premium subscription so that you can still access the resources at home.
The resources will not be available next to the videos on their home page as they have done before, but we have included them here for you to download. The link below will take you to the home learning page where you click on the relevant year group and then make sure you choose the correct date for this week (18th May Week 5). I have added the videos below the work sheet documents.
On Friday I would like you to design a times table game and it must include the 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s. Draw it out, write down the rules and teach your parents. You are more than welcome to send them in to us and they will be put on the class slides of celebration.

For music this week please continue with the out of the ark resources. We are on week 4 now on this website.
Listen to the Tree of Life Music
As our topic is plants, this is a tree inspired piece of music.
As you listen to this piece of music I would like you to create a tree/ favourite place picture using paints or pencil or anything else you wish to use. Listen to the music to inspire your work.
We would like you to look at trees this week. Look at their shape, size and leaf shapes.
When you are either in your garden or on a walk, collect leaves from different trees and take them home.
Firstly if possible, we would like you to do some rubbings of the leaves and see if you can identify them.
Then we would like you to group them into either deciduous or evergreen. The more rubbings of different tree leaves you have the more fun the sorting will be. You could stick the leaves on a sheet with the title deciduous trees and do the same for the evergreen leaves you find. Label the ones you can identify too! Send in your photos and I will pop them onto the slide show.
The science part.
Evergreen leaves stay green all year round and deciduous trees lose their leaves in Autumn as the trees become dormant.
Can you find out why some trees do this and others don't?
