Home Learning Task: January 5th

Home Learning for Class One

Hello, we are so sad that we won’t see you for a few weeks – but we will be learning together every day. It would be a really good idea if you set yourself up a little learning zone where you can complete your home learning tasks over the next few weeks. Think about what you might need in your ‘office’. Have you got pencils, crayons, paper, a rubber, a sharpener, a ruler, scissors, glue? You might like to make yourself a sign and a badge. You could even make a little calendar like we have at school where you could change the day of the week, date, month and weather?

For English:

It has been lovely and snowy over the last week. There are lots of different words to describe snow eg glistening, freezing, dazzling, white… We love to make our writing really exciting by adding adjectives. 


Reception – Talk to a grown up and see if you can think of some words to describe the snow. Draw a snowman and use your phonic knowledge to write some of the adjectives you thought of around him.


Year 1 and 2 – I think you could write a list of adjectives to describe the snow and then use them to write a story about a Snowman including your amazing describing words. 

I can’t wait to read your work.

Yesterday, in maths, we started to talk about shapes. We identified circles, ovals, triangles, squares, oblongs/ rectangles and Y1 and 2 started to look at pentagons, hexagons, octagons too.  We also talked about how many sides and vertices (corners) they had. Check that you can remember the names and properties of the shapes and then go for a shape hunt around your house. Which shape can you find the most of? 

Home Learning for Class Two

Class 2 have three tasks for today, try to do as much as you can and don’t forget to look out for more learning for the rest of the week soon.

For English, please try to write a descriptive piece, inspired by a winter scene. You could use this picture for your inspiration or you could use a photo or memory that you have.

Use adjectives, noun phrases, powerful verbs:

Eg. The icicles shone in the tree like sparkling icy fingers …

Children zoomed down the snowy hills like rockets …

The cute robin sang happily perched on the fence, his red chest glowing like a red ruby…

In Maths, please go on, TT Rock stars (use your logins) and practise 3, 4, 6 and 7 x tables – Get an adult or older sibling to test you.

Practise telling the time using a clock – quarter past/to, half past, 5 mins past.

In PSHE we are thinking about New Year’s Resolutions. Please watch the slide show below and then use the sheet here to set out your own hopes, aims and resolutions.

Home Learning for Class Three

We are really going to miss you in Class 3 but, over the next few weeks we will be doing lots of learning together from home.

In order for us to work well and be able to concentrate, it is really important to have somewhere that is ready and equipped for learning. Can you find a space in your house where you will be able to do your learning?

You may want to make a little space in the area or even have a special box where you could put your things so that it can be tidied away when it needs to be.

In your space can you put some stationery like a pen, pencil and colouring things. If you have a nice notebook or paper, you could add that too. You could make a nice sign or label for your area/box. If you have a younger brother or sister, you could help them to create their space or box and labels too.

Once you’ve made your space, you have three tasks for today.

The words we use within sentences and speech can be given different names depending on their roles. A word is an adjective if it used to describe something, a verb if it is an action/doing word or a state of being and a noun if it is a person, place or thing. Can you watch and try to answer the questions in this video from Oak Academy?

If you cannot access this video, can you write 6 sentences of your own? Then underline the different words in the sentence and label them with their word class for example, adjective, noun, verb.

Our focus in Maths for the next couple of weeks will be fractions. Today, I would like you to create a mind map of all the things you remember or know about fractions. Think about what they are and how we identify them, the words we use when we talk about fractions, when we might use them in real life and anything else you can think of (you can even include pictures)! If you are struggling to remember information, then write down some questions or ideas that you want to know.

You can email a picture of this to me.

Finally, let’s get a bit crafty! Yesterday we started to create some winter/snowy scenes using pictures taken in Sabden and Clitheroe. Can you create your own winter scene today (or use a picture of one) in any way you wish? You can use colours, paints, crayons, chalk- be creative. I’d also love to see any pictures of these too!
