Sparrowhawks

Welcome to Sparrowhawks!


We are the amazing Year 1 class taught by Miss Digance and fantastically supported by Mrs Verrecchia, Mrs Cousins and Mr Lunn. We love to learn in different ways, exploring the world outside and inside the classroom and follow our fascination! We are very hard workers who are amazing at working as a team. Go team Sparrowhawks! We also like to be known as Awesomehawks! 

Friday 22nd January

 

Happy Friday Sparrowhawks!

 

We made it. What a week! Well done to each and every one of you for trying your best and working so hard.

From this Friday onwards, they will be known as 'Fascination Fridays'!

 

Fascination Fridays are all about following your fascination. What are you really interested in? What would you like to learn more about? 

 

Show me what you have chosen by sending me some photos! Maybe you want to act something out? Maybe you would like to write a story or make a poster. Whichever way you want to showcase what you have learnt, it is up to you! Let's see where it takes us. smiley

 

I have still included Maths, Literacy, Spelling and PE ideas for you today to keep you busy if you want to!

 

 

We have been SO creative with our learning this week!

Maths - Today we are looking at the 2D shapes we can see in 3D shapes! Follow the slides and start on page. 128 in your power maths books, I have also included a suggested activity for afterwards!

Just like Irene in our maths lesson this morning, what can you create using 2D shapes? What objects could you use to create differet shapes and pictures? Why not try what Irene did!

Spellings

See how well you have learnt your spellings this week! Remember, it does not matter if you don't get them all right, it is all about practice!

Literacy

 

Today I want to link Literacy with our Fascination Friday theme! Maybe you can write about what you have chosen to learn today?

 

Writing Checklist:

 

Capital letter

Full stop

Finger spaces

 

Extra challenge:

 

Use an adjective, noun or verb in your writing!

 

 

PE - We have been inspired by Leila's recommendation for a briliant Yoga adventure! As we are doing PE in school today, why not try this at home?

Thursday 21st January

 

Good Morning Sparrowhawks. It was so lovely to see you yesterday and you are doing so well with your maths and home learning! Well done. 

 

Please see today's learning below, and some of the amazing this we have been up to!

Maths - Today we are looking at 2D shapes. go through the teaching slides if you are not able to join me for Zoom, then start p. 125 in your Power Maths books. There are some extra challenges below to keep you busy!

2D Shape Hunt! How many 2D shapes can you find in your house or outiside on your walk? Maybe you could take photos and make a collage out of the shapes you have found? I loved the ideas below!

Literacy

 

Today is creation day! After visualising what Beegu's home planet might look like, now you can create it!

 

Use Beegu as inspiration to create a whole new world. 

You can use any art medium you would like to, I have provided some inspiration below to help you get started!

 

 

 

 

Geography

 

We have been monitoring the weather where we live for a little while now. What have you noticed? What has the weather been like?

 (I have definitely noticed there has been A LOT of rain...)

 

Is this what the weather is like everywhere in the world? If not, why?

We are now going to start looking beyond the weather where we live and think about the weather in different continents. 

Wait....what is a continent? Let's start there today.

 

Below I have posted a map of the world showing the 7 continents. Your mission today is to learn what continents are and name all 7 of them! I have also included some resources to help you learn the 7 continents of the world!

 

Extra - Have you experienced the weather in a different continent? If so, what was it like? Was it different from the UK? You can document your thoughts by writing about a holiday you have been on, or maybe you could video yourself and tell me all about it! Have fun explorers!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday 20th January 

 

Good Morning Sparrowhawks. We are halfway through the week! Happy Wednesday to you all! I hope you had a great day of learning yesterday.

 

Please see today's learning below laugh 

 

 

Eloise was inspired by Neil Armstrong's Moon Landing. Along with her sister, they made their very own rocket and flew to space yesterday! "One small step for man, one giant leap for Eloise and her sister!"

Maths - We are continuing to learn about our 3D shapes, and recognising them when using them to build different things. Go through the slides and complete the work in your Power Maths books. Today you are starting from p.122

Literacy - Today is the introduction of a 2 day task - continuing with our lovely book, Beegu. Watch the video to hear more of our story. Then, I have attached the task as a document for you to read through. Start with the writing task today and we will start the art section tomorrow.

Science

 

Today in Science we are going to be thinking about daytime and night-time. 

 

Have you ever noticed that is it darker for longer in the winter, and lighter for longer in the summer? Why is this do you think?

 

Check out the videos below to learn more about why we have day and night, before completing today's task:

 

 

Why We Have Seasons

A great way to experience how the Earth orbits around the sun, is by experimenting with shadows!

 

Today you're going to conduct an experiment on using shadows and making your own shadow sculptures!

 

You will need:

A torch or lamp (if there is no sunshine!)

Materials to create your sculpture

Paper and pencil. 

 

Experiment:

  • Create a sculpture of your choice - the more interesting the shape the better! I will add some inspiration below.
  • Place your sculpture on some paper and shine a light on it. Can you see a shadow?
  • Draw around the shadow, then move your light to shine on your sculpture from a different angle.

 

What do you notice? Does your shadow stay the same? Or does it change? Think about why.

This helps us understand how our Earth spins, and orbits around the sun, which provides the biggest shadow of all, night time!

 

Do send in your pictures of your sculptures and drawings!

Tuesday 19th January

 

Good Morning Sparrowhawks,

 

Happy Tuesday! Well done for amazing work yesterday, you are all working so hard already! Go team Awesomehawks.

Good Morning Sparrowhawks!

 

I hope you had a great weekend. Here we go! Another brilliant week of learning ahead! Please see below for today's learning, and I look forward to seeing you all in our Zoom sessions.

Have a great Monday! laugh

 

 

 

Maths - Today we are looking at 3D shapes. If you are unable to join me for a Zoom session this morning, use the slides below to learn the properties of 3D shapes. Your task for today is to go on a 3D shape hunt! What 3D shapes can you find in your home? How can you prove which 3D shape they are? Take pictures and show me how many you can find!

Literacy

Every Monday we are going to practice our sentence writing by writing about what we got up to at the weekend. 

(Also, I am very nosy and want to know all the fun things you have been doing!)

 

Please try to write at least 2 sentences. Your sentences must include:

 

A capital letter

A full stop

Finger spaces

 

Can you include an adjective (describing word) and a verb (doing word)? Maybe you can also use a noun (name of a person, place or thing)?

 

I will use my weekend as an example:

 

This weekend I walked in the woods with my friend Beka.

On Sunday I cooked some soup and made a delicious apple crumble.

 

Spellings

 

Spellings have been updated on SpellingShed and can also be found below. You have your assigned words on the SpellingShed site, however as there is no formal spelling test, you can also practice whichever spellings you would like to as I have posted them below:

History - Today in History we are learning more facts about the amazing Neil Armstrong. We are also using time lines to show we know when significant moments happend. Your task is to go through the slides provided, then cut and stick Neil's time line moments in the correct order. This is a chance to think about why we use timelines and how they are helpful.

Friday 15th January

 

Happy Friday Sparrowhawks. We did it, we made it through our first official week of online learning. I am so amazingly proud of each and every one of you for working so hard. We have certainly earned a restful weekend!

 

Today's learning is below.  Just a few little tasks for the morning, then I have suggestions for fun activities this afternoon. 

 

But first, it is show off learning time!

Maths - Today marks the end of our unit on subtraction. The teaching slides double up as today's work. It goes through different questions that cover all the different things we have covered.

Literacy

 

Well done for creating such detailed 'Lost' posters! Hopefully, they will help make sure Beegu is found safe and sound. 

 

One of the things we have talked about in class is how lonely Beegu might be feeling. So today, your task is to design and create your very own alien to be a friend for Beegu.

 

Today it is up to you how you make your alien. You could draw, paint or make your alien out of different materials. 

 

Things to think about:

 

What is your alien going to look like?

What would they feel like? Would they have fur? Or scales? 

Would they have arms and legs like humans? Or would they look completely different?

 

Your main task today with this is...to have fun, and get creative!

Spellings

 

We would normally practice our spellings together today! Why don't you practice them at home and show me your scores?

Thursday 14th January

 

Good Morning Awesomehawks! It was so lovely seeing you yesterday and once again, I am so impressed with how hard you are all working. I just want to take this moment to thank you all for being so AWESOME.  We are Awesomehawks after all, so it is no surprise. laugh

 

Today's learning will be posted below. But first, it is show off learning time!

Eloise had some lovely ideas to help Beegu. You would be a great friend to Beegu Eloise!

Literacy 

Beegu's parents have got in touch and said that they need our help! They are very worried about Beegu as she is lost and they cannot find her. They have asked us to make some 'Lost' posters to help with the search!

 

Your task today:

On the poster template provided draw Beegu to show people what she looks like.

Use adjectives in a sentence to describe Beegu to help others find her. 

 

For example, Beegu has yellow fur.

 

Check your sentences have capital letters and full stops!

I think everyone can start with 2 sentences, but do write more if you can!

 

Can you discover more interesting adjectives to make your writing more descriptive?

Please send me pictures of your fabulous writing! 

 

 

Geography

 

Today we are going to think about weather forecasts! But what is the weather forecast?

Check out the video below to learn more:

Your Task: Using what you can learn from the weather forecast, can you find out what the weather forecast is for the weekend? You can write it using the worksheet below. Or, you might like to video your very own weather report!

Wednesday 13th January

 

Happy Wednesday Sparrowhawks! I hope you had a great day yesterday and are ready for another day of learning!

 

But first, it is time to show off all of our fantastic learning, let's take a look!

Maths - We are carrying on with comparing additions and subtractions. I have also included a 'Who's on the Bus?' game that you can print off and play which is a great way to practice your adding and taking away!

Literacy 

 

Today we are starting to read our book for this term, Beegu. Watch the video first of me reading the beginning of this story. Then, in any way you would like to, can you tell me what you would do to help Beegu feel less lost and more comfortable? I have provided a mind map worksheet if you would like to do that. However, you can show your ideas any way you would like to! 

 

Please follow the link below to access the video for today's lesson. If you have any issues please do let me know.

Tuesday 5th January 2021

Hello Awesomehawks! We hope you all have had a magical Christmas and a lovely New Year. It is officially 2021, how exciting!

With a new year comes lots of new amazing things to learn and explore, so let’s have a look at what we will be doing this term!

 

Literacy

 

This term in Literacy, our topic is...wait for it…SPACE! We will be reading a wonderful story about a special creature called Beegu. We are going to explore this book using our amazing writing, art and drama skills, so we cannot wait to get started!

 

Let’s get inspired!

 

 If you could create your very own alien, what would it look like? What would it feel, sound and act like? Where would it live?

 

 

We are lucky enough to have access to some super daily online RWI lessons to help with our sounds and reading!

The first YouTube lesson is up today at 9:30. Below is the link to the YouTube channel and a download of the daily lesson schedule. Each video is up for 24 hours so if 9:30 does not suit, then you can watch the videos at a time that suits you!

 

https://www.youtube.com/c/RuthMiskinTrainingEdu/videos

 

 

 

Maths

 

We are beginning the term by refreshing our brains with some subtraction and addition! If you want to do some extra practice at home that would be AMAZING! Of course, daily Numbots for 10 minutes is brilliant, but if you want more, I have included some extra resources below to help you get settled back in this week, have a look and do use them if they are helpful!

 

After our recap on addition and subtraction, we will be moving on and learning all about shapes!

 

Let’s get inspired!

 

What shapes do you know? How do you know what each shape is? What characteristics do they have to help you know? How many shapes can you find at home?

 

Spellings

 

New spellings are now available to practice! There will be no spelling test this Friday as we only have 3 days back at school, so this means you have extra time to practice your spellings for next Friday!

 

Let’s get inspired!

 

If you know them all off by heart, here’s a challenge! Can you write a sentence using a word from your list of spellings?

Science

 

This term we are exploring weather and seasons! What different weather types are there? How can we tell what the weather will be in the future? We will also be exploring seasons!

 

Let’s get inspired!

Can you investigate how we can forecast the weather? Why is it important that we know what the weather will be like? What is your favourite type of weather and why?

 

Geography

 

Linking with our Science topic, in Geography we will be exploring climates around the world!

 

Let’s get inspired!

 

What can you remember about our discussion about climate before the Christmas holidays? What climate would Mister P live in? How do you know? Why would Mister P not like to live in a hot climate?

 

We will be incorporating Art, Drama, Music and DT with our topic this term, and I will include all our lovely photos and videos of what we create on this page!

 

We cannot wait to see you on Wednesday! Let’s start the term off with a bang!

 

Miss Digance laugh

Literacy:

 

This week we are learning the story of Monty the penguin. Watch the clip below to learn his story.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rJ86fLF71I

 

 

To start with this week we are thinking about feelings and emotions. Watch the clip again and think about what emotions you think this penguin is feeling throughout the video. 

 

Things to think about:

Why do you think Monty feels the way he does?

What shows you this in the video?

How does Monty feel when he receives his present?

 

Draw your own Monty and write around him the different emotions you feel he was feeling. Can you explain why?

 

 

Maths:

Keep going with your Numbots every day! 10 minutes a day is great practice!

 

For extra more focused maths practice, this week we are continuing to look at subtraction.

Follow the daily WhiteRose lessons:

Check out the video and look out for toys that you use today:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z7sygk7

Think together:

When were the Romans around?

What toys did they have that we have today?

What toys did they have that we no longer have?

What has surprised you?

Your task:

To pick a toy to research and find out:

  1. When was it invented?
  2. What is it made of?
  3. Has it changed over time?
  4. If so, how?

Create a poster about your chosen toy – you could draw your toy or cut and stick a picture, and write about the things you have discovered!

 

Geography:

This week we are looking at climate and weather in the Arctic.

Firstly, what is meant by climate? What is meant by weather? Are they different? If so, how?

Take a look at the resources below to find out more about climate and weather. What will you discover about the climate and weather of the Arctic?

You might want to think about what animals live there, or what plants are best suited to grow there?

 

Showcase your findings anyway you would like to. You could draw a picture, create a leaflet or poster, or video your findings! Be creative and follow your fascination!

Monday 30th November

 

Good morning Sparrowhawks and happy Monday! I hope you had a very restful and fun weekend.

 

We had an amazing week of learning last week, both in the classroom and at home. We are so impressed with all your hard work, well done!

 

 

Look at our amazing learning!

This weeks learning:

 

Spellings:

 

Spelling Shed has been updated with this week's new spellings! 

 

English:

 

This week we are learning about instructions, what they are and how they help us. Firstly, take a look at the link below that helps explain how to write instructions:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2189sv8Bvy4

 

As we have been learning about Polar Bears, we are going help a Polar Bear by writing instructions to make a perfect home.

 

What to think about:

What will a Polar Bear need to eat?

Where does a Polar Bear like to live?

What temperature is ideal for a Polar Bear?

 

Your challenge is to create instructions to build the ideal home for a Polar Bear! Remember to use verbs (doing words) to help people to know what to do!

 

Maths:

 

This week we are starting to look at problem-solving using addition and subtraction. Follow the link for White Rose Home Learning.

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/week-8-number-addition-subtraction/ 

 

Optional Further Activities:

 

History:

 

This week we are comparing older and newer toys. Pick your favourite toy or game, and compare that toy with a toy your grown-ups know or have played with.

 

What have you noticed?

When was your toy invented?

What is it made of?

How do you know your toy is newer? 

 

Create a poster for your toy and your grown-ups toy, comparing the differences and similarities! 

 

Science:

 

Carry on with your Arctic research, this week maybe think about the similarities between the Arctic and Antarctica? Are they similar? Are they different? If so, how?

 

Geography:

 

Where is the Arctic and Antarctica? Can you locate these places on a map? Have an explore on google earth to learn more!

Wednesday 25th November

 

Hello Sparrowhawks! Happy Wednesday! 

 

I have loved seeing all the amazing learning we have been doing this week, in the classroom and at home! Do keep sending me your lovely pictures of all your hard work. 

 

In History this week we are looking at a specific toy that has been around for a very long time! Lego! (Ask your grown-ups, I bet they played with Lego when they were your age!) The history of Lego is very interesting, and this week we are using it to understand what time-lines are and how they help us know when things happened. Find the PowerPoint below:

 

 

In Science, we have followed our fascination as we have so loved reading 'Me and Mister P' which is all about a Polar Bear that turns up out of the blue in Arthur's life?!

 

We wanted to learn more about Polar Bears and where they live! This week we are looking at the Arctic and becoming science researchers to find out all we can.

 

Check out the PowerPoint below for activities to get stuck in to!

In maths this week, we are focussing on addition, making number bonds and finding addition facts!

 

Follow the link to White Rose Home learning - Week 7 - Addition. We can start on the second lesson (adding more) and work through one of these every day.

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/week-7-number-addition-subtraction/

 

Keep going with your Numbots too!

 

Have a wonderful day, and I will be updating our page again on Friday. Do get in touch if you have any questions.

This week we are looking at finding number bonds to 10. A great way to practice this at home is to create your own game of bowling! Using materials to make 10 skittles, how many fall down? How many are left? How many ways can you make number sentences showing 10?

 

If that is too easy, try it with 20!

I will be adding topic resources throughout the week so do look out for extra activities.

 

In the mean time, follow your fascination and pick something to learn about that really interests you! I would love to see what you come up with!

Friday 16th October 

Starting from next week we will be uploading some additional resources to our page every week to support learning at home, including spellings, Maths, English and humanities. 

 

We will also be sharing what we are up to in the classroom so everyone at home can share in the fun and successes!

We have been very busy bees this term! We have all been learning so much and we are so proud of everyone for working so incredibly hard!

Let's have a look back at our successes so far:

 

Friday 17th July 2020 - Last day of school!

 

Hello Hawks!!  WE HAVE DONE IT!  We have completed Year 1!  I hope you have had a brilliant year 1, you have all been amazing and I have really enjoyed teaching you all both in school and through your home learning! 

I hope you have a great summer and get to do lots of fun activities! 

Good luck in Year 2, I know you are all going to be amazing :)

 

Love, 

 

Miss Currant :) 

A brilliant memory jar!

Wednesday 15th July 2020

Good morning Hawks! 

 

I hope you are enjoying your time at home with your families! 

There is no extra science task today :) Just keep on going with the learning plan and enjoy your last week of term :) 

 

Miss Currant 

 

 

Monday 13th July 2020

Good morning Hawks! 

 

Welcome to your last week of Year 1! I hope you have all had brilliant weekends and are ready for your last week! 

 

This weeks learning is all about going into Year 2 and thinking about what you are excited about for next year and all the achievements you have made for this year. There is only 1 task per day and 1 maths task per day to make your last week a little easier and give you more time for fun activities with your families and grown ups. 

 

I have put the learning plan and maths plan (with the powerpoint) on the website as usual! 

Enjoy your last week! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

What a brilliant Solar system poster from Hannah! Well done! You have drawn the planets so beautifully!

Friday 10th July 2020

Good morning Hawks!

 

Your art task today is to make a 3D model of your favourite planet! This could be done using paper mache if you would like or you could draw on a balloon or you could just cover a ball with paper and draw on that!

 

I wonder if as the class we could make the whole solar system?

 

Send in your photos of your planets!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant space writing from Danny! Well done Danny!

Wednesday 8th July 2020

Good morning Hawks!

 

Your science task is a half science and half writing one today!

I wonder if you could come up with your own pneumonic to remember the order of the planets.

 

My        Mercury

Very      Venus

Easy      Earth

Method    Mars

Just       Jupiter

Speeds    Saturn

Up        Uranus

Naming    Neptune

Planets    Pluto

 

This is the one that I always use but I wonder if you could come up with a more fun one! First you will have to remember or look up the correct order of the planets and then go from there! Your adults could help you if you need it :) 

 

Send in your pneumonic and we will see which ones we can remember.

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant home learning from Danny and even a trip to the park! Very lucky!

Monday 6th July 2020 

Good morning Hawks! 

 

I hope you have had a good weekend and didn't get blown away in all the wind we had! Hopefully this week will be nice and sunny and we can all get outside! 

 

This weeks learning is all about Space! We have learnt a bit about space before so I wonder how much you will remember and impress your adults with your astronaut knowledge. 

 

I hope you enjoy your learning this week! Keep sending in the fabulous photos of your home learning! 

 

Miss Currant :)

We have a fossil hunter amongst us and they look like they were very successful!

Evie has been doing some brilliant musical home learning this week! Well done!

Friday 3rd July 2020

Good morning Hawks,

 

I hope you have enjoyed your music topic so far this week. This weeks art task is to make a musical instrument out of recycling from your house. You could use wool and cardboard to make a guitar, you could use lentils and a bottle to make a shaker or try and make a drum with a pot and some material.

Make up a tune to play on your instrument and send either a photo or a video of you and your instrument into school to share with your friends! 

 

I look forward to seeing what you create!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Great home learning Danny! Well done! I love your new collection of instruments!

Super dancing Loki! You can jump so high!

Great home learning Harriett! I wonder if you will ever learn the french horn?

Joshua has been busy with his home learning and has even lost his first tooth!

Wednesday 1st July 2020

Good morning Hawks, 

 

Happy 1st of July! We are in our last month of school. I hope you have enjoyed your music topic so far this week :) 

 

Your science today is another sorting activity to show your grown ups what super scientists you are! We are thinking about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores this week. 

Sort the animals into the right part of the venn diagram after reading the information about the animals :) 

 

Enjoy your science and keep sending in your photos of your work!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some great home learning from a couple of Hawks! A time whizz and a concert to attend!

Monday 29th June 2020 

Good morning Hawks, 

 

I hope you have had a great weekend! What did you all get up to? Did anyone get caught in the rain? I did and I got very soggy! 

 

This weeks learning is all about music which is an exciting topic! I have uploaded the weekly learning plan and your power maths for you as usual. 

 

It is brilliant to hear from you all still and I love seeing the learning that you are doing at home! You are all doing really well and I can see that you are trying your best :) I know that Mrs Hillier will be very proud to have you all next year and see how hard you all work! 

 

Enjoy this weeks learning :) 

 

Miss Currant :) 

We have a new chef in Hawks class who has been cooking up a Chinese Feast!

Some superb art projects! Well done! Can anyone see what animal they have drawn?

Friday 26th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

For your art task today we are going to continue the theme of ‘Around the world’ and think about Australia. In Australia they have a specific type of art called aboriginal art where instead of painting with big brush strokes they use lots and lots of different coloured dots to make up one larger picture.

I have attached a PowerPoint for you to look through to learn more about the art and then you can have a go yourself. Draw a picture of an animal (you will have to make it quite big) and then paint that in and see how it comes out! 

 

Enjoy your arty afternoon!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Evie has been very busy with lots of learning! Well done Evie! Keep up the good work!

Someone in our class has a new kitten! He's very cute!

Brilliant maths work!

Super science! Well done!

Some brilliant home learning from Joshua! Well done, keep up the good work!

Wednesday 24th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

This week for your science we are going to be thinking about the structure of animals. Once again, we have done this before in Autumn term, but I would like you to show your grown-ups how much you can remember. Have a look through the PowerPoint with your grown-ups and then see if you can draw your own animal to label.

If you want a super challenge, then you can draw more than one animal with a different structure and label that too.

If you think that you will find drawing an animal too tricky then you can use the elephant labelling activity that I have attached instead 

 

Enjoy your science!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant fruit facts! Well done!

What a super fun extra activity! Very stretchy slimy!

Some lovely writing about a lovely place!

Monday 22nd June 2020

Good morning Hawks!

 

I hope you have had a brilliant weekend and are looking forward to all the sunshine we are going to have this week! Hopefully you will be able to get outside a little more this week! 

 

Your topic this week is 'Around the world' which gives us a chance to learn about our world a little more which is exciting! I have posted your weekly plan and power maths below. 

 

I hope you enjoy this topic and keep sending in pictures of your home learning! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some lovely art work here! Florence Nightingale would be proud of these lanterns!

Friday 19th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!


Seeing as we have been learning about Florence nightingale and other significant people I thought we could make something that Florence nightingale is famous for carrying around with her during her time helping others.

This week I would like you to make some paper lanterns. I have included some instructions on how to make them. You can either make 1 and then dress up like Florence nightingale and send in a picture of you or you could make lots and hang them up as decorations! It is up to you!

 

I hope you have fun making them!

 

Miss Currant :)

Some super science! Well remembered!

Wednesday 17th June 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

For today’s science task I am seeing if you can remember when we did this back in Autumn term. We have looked at the different type of animals before and thought about why they belonged to each category.

Go through the PowerPoint with your grown-ups and see how many facts you can remember about each animal group. After wards see if you can sort the animals into the correct groups!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Great maths and even some friends to help you out with sharing! Well done!

Some brilliant writing! Well done!

Oh no Hawks! Look what has happened! Poor Hannah has broken her wrist but she tells me that she got to see the bones inside her arm which was pretty cool! I wonder if anyone could make a card for Hannah to make her feel better?

Monday 15th June 2020

Good morning Hawks! 

I hope you have had a brilliant weekend and have stayed dry in the rain! What did you do? I hope you are all still having fun with your families at home :) 

This weeks learning is all about significant people in our history. The people you will be learning about are key figures in our past and are very interesting! 

I hope you enjoy this historical project! I can't wait to see what is sent in! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

An amazing piece of rainforest artwork! Well Done Hannah!

Well done on your spellings Hawks! I have had a look and I can see lots of you are practising hard!

Friday 12th June 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

This week in Art we are going to think about a famous artist called Henri Rousseau. He did lots of paintings of Jungles and put his own unique style on creating them.

I have attached a PowerPoint for you to learn a little about him and also some of his pieces of art.

I would like you to try and recreate one of his pieces of art or make your own using his style of drawing!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Emilia has been busy doing an amazing rainforest project! Well done Emilia! This is great!

Wow! Look at these sock puppets! I would like to listen to a story with them!

Some great animal factfiles! Well done! These could be in Longleat!

These look like some really fun activities!

Wednesday 10th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

This week for your science task I would like you to make a seasons wheel. This means dividing something circular (it could be a paper plate or just a circle of paper that you have cut out) and divide it into 4 sections.

Each section represents one of the 4 seasons. You can write the seasons name in the section and also draw a picture of what a tree would look like in that season. If you would like an extra challenge you can also draw pictures of clothes that you would wear in that season and write a sentence on the back to describe either the tree or the clothes.

 

I hope you enjoy your science task and keep sending in your work!

 

Miss Currant :)

Brilliant new olympic sports medals! Well done!

Someone in Hawks has been very busy cooking for their family! It looks very yummy!

Friday 5th June 2020 

Good Morning Hawks! 

 

Your art task today is to create your own Olympic medal to go with your new olympic sport or to create a medal for someone in your family who deserves one. Will they be the same colours as usual medals (Bronze, Silver and Gold)? What picture will it have on the front? Will they be metal? Could you make one as well as design it?

 

I hope you have fun with this task today and have a brilliant weekend! 

 

Miss Currant :)

Hello Hawks! 

I have put these handwriting and number formation practice sheets up as an optional task for you to complete. We know in Hawks that is it very important to do your neatest handwriting and this means we have to practice. 

Please do not feel that you have to do these, they are very much an optional task. 

 

I hope you are all keeping well and keep sending in your brilliant work! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Well done for finding some 'or' words! These can be tricky to find!

Some powerful mathematicians have sent me their work! Well done Hawks!

Some super science! Well done!

Wednesday 3rd June 2020

Good Morning Hawks! 

 

Today for your science task we are going to start thinking about the seasons. I have uploaded a powerpoint to get you thinking about the different seasons and a worksheet to fill in. You can either do the worksheet on Autumn (what was done in the powerpoint) or you can do it about the season we are in now, it is up to you. 

 

I hope you enjoy your science and keep sending in your fabulous work!

Good morning Hawks! 

I hope you have all had a brilliant half term and got up to lots of exciting things! I expect lots of you have been keeping cool because it has been very hot! If you would like to send in any pictures of your half term then please do. I would love to see what you got up to. I have been very busy planting new trees, making things out of elderflower and starting lots of projects with recycled wood! 

 

This week for our learning we have a sports theme to keep us active during the time we are away from school. The weekly plan has been uploaded and so has our power maths. 

I am going to be in school with some of the children in the daytime so might not be able to reply to your emails straight away but I will do my best to reply quickly and if not I will reply to them at the end of the day. 

 

I hope you enjoy this weeks learning and I look forward to hearing from you!

Some great rainbow weaving fish! Well done!

Friday 22nd May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks,

 

I hope you have had a good week so far! I have really enjoyed seeing all the pictures of your home learning! You are look like you are working really hard and you should be very proud of yourselves!

 

For your art task today I thought we could continue on the ‘Under the Sea’ theme and make some weaved rainbow fish. You can use anything to weave into your fish, it could be coloured paper, wool, ribbon, pipe cleaners, anything that you can bend to weave it in!

 

I have attached some pictures and instructions on how to make them. I hope you enjoy your art task and have a lovely weekend in the brilliant sunshine!

 

Miss Currant :)

Under the Sea writing! Well done guys! These are brilliant!

Super maths! Well done!

Extra home learning! Well done guys! You look like you are doing some brilliant extra tasks at home!

Some super science! Good work!

Wednesday 20th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

Today for Science I have 2 different activities for you. One of them is to think about trees again but this time to think about the different parts of a tree.

I have uploaded a cut and stick for you to do but if you don’t want to do it this way, you can always look at the labels that I have provided and make your own big versions of them and stick them on a real tree that you could find in your garden or out on a walk!

 

The second activity is a little quiz to see what you can remember about our learning from the past few weeks. You do not have to do this if you don’t want to and you do not have to do it independently. Your adults could read you the questions and you could talk about the answers together. Some of them are matching activities and I know that all of Hawks like matching activities and we are very good at them!

 

I hope you are having a good week and enjoying your Under the Sea learning! You have sent in some brilliant work so far! Well done! 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant reading tasks! Well done!

Some brilliant junk modelling inventions as part of Mrs Butt's challenge have been sent in! Well done guys!

Under the Sea learning!

Monday 18th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you enjoyed your weekend! What did you get up to? I went on a bike ride, played some rugby and frisbee and re-planted some of my plants :) I am trying to grow some new plants and will post pictures of them if they work! 

 

This week for your learning you have an ‘Under the Sea’ theme. The weekly plan is uploaded as usual but looks slightly different this week. We have changed it so it is slightly more structured and lays out what you should do for each day for the core subjects.

In the maths boxes there are 2 tasks for each day. The power maths is the more important of the two but if you are feeling super sonic then you can have a go at the second activity!

 

The afternoons still run as usual:

Monday and Tuesday – Pick a topic activity from the plan

Wednesday – Science

Thursday – P.E.

Friday – Art/D.T.

 

I hope you enjoy your learning for the week and have fun with your grown ups :)

 

Miss Currant :)

Some brilliant baking has come in already! I wonder what everyone else is making?

Friday 15th May 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you have had a lovely week this week and have had lots of fun looking at different foods!

 

For this weeks Art/D.T. project I would like you to continue thinking about food and make something with your families at home. You could bake, you could cook or you could simply help make dinner. Help to weigh out the ingredients and think about how each one is going to make the product better or what function it has in the cooking!

 

Send in pictures of what you make and we will share all the yummy foods that we have been making!

 

Have a brilliant weekend and enjoy going outside!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some brilliant tree rubbings sent in! Great work!

Wednesday 13th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

This week we aren’t going to think about flowers in science. We are going to think about trees! I am going to send you on a tree hunt when you are next on your walk!

 

We are going to think about 2 different types of trees: Evergreen and Deciduous. I have attached a video to explain the different to you and also 2 small posters. I would like you to go out on a walk and find 3 evergreen trees and 3 deciduous trees and take rubbings of them in the rubbings box on your worksheet. Make sure that you put the rubbing in the right column and after you have taken the rubbing you can identify what kind of tree it is and write it in the box. If you don’t know what type of tree it is I have attached a link to a tree ID app that you can use to help you identify it.

 

I hope you enjoy this tree hunt and finding different types of trees!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some extra activities that look very fun! What extra activities has everyone else been doing?

Great writing Hawks! Well done!

Wow! Lots of different food listed here and all sorted brilliantly! Well done!

Some brilliant maths being completed! Well done!

Joshua has been very busy this weekend! He did a virtual race challenge called to the moon and back where he had to do 20 of all the following sit ups, press ups, burpees, tuck jumps then ran 2 miles then all again when he got back! He must have worked very hard! Well done Joshua!

Monday 11th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you had a brilliant weekend and enjoyed VE day! What did you do on VE day? Did anyone celebrate and have a socially distant street party?

 

Here is your weekly plan for this week! This week we are thinking about Food (which is all very yummy).

 

This week I have also put up some guidance to help you with your PowerMaths books. This is what you would usually see in your text books before we started working and we would work through this together answering the questions to talk about methods to answers questions before doing them in our books.

The ‘Discover’ questions can be talked about together, thinking about how we can answer them and what information we used.

The ‘Share’ question usually tells us how the previous questions could be answered (providing clarification and consolidation to conversation that would have happened during the ‘Discover question’).

The ‘Think together’ question you can have a go at on your own and then discuss it with an adult after.

Please don’t feel like you have to complete the challenge question. Only try this if you feel ready to do it and understand all the other questions.

 

Please use this resource if it is helpful but if it is not then please don’t feel that you have to use it!

 

I hope you enjoy this weeks work and I will speak to you again on Wednesday! Keep sending in all your photos!

 

Miss Currant :) 

Mrs Butt's Challenge!!

Mrs Butt has come up with a challenge for you all which is very exciting! 

She has been thinking hard about how she can recycle as much as possible and help save the planet. 

Mrs Butt would like you to save as much recycling over the next couple of weeks and build something amazing with it! It could be a new toy, a robot, a tower or anything else you can think of! 

Please send us a picture of what you make and we can share it all with our friends! 

 

From, 

 

Mrs Butt and Miss Currant :) 

Book Token Competition 

Mrs Nolan has an exciting task for you which she has put below! Have a look through and see if you want to take part! 

Brilliant decoration guys!

Friday 8th May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks!

 

Today is a very special day! It is VE day today and it is the 75th anniversary of VE Day! To mark this special occasion, I have prepared some fun art and DT activities for you to do today!

 

I have attached a PowerPoint which will help you learn about VE day and why we celebrate it. After that, I have attached a variety of activities for you today so you can choose as many or as little to do as you would like!

 

I hope that you enjoy celebrating VE day and I can’t wait to see what you make! I am going to make some of my own decorations today and put them in my window for everyone to see!

 

From,

 

Miss Currant

Some brilliant writing sent in! Keep up the good work Hawks!

Some more brilliant maths sent in! Well done! Keep up the good work!

Some brilliant science work sent in! Great work everyone!

Some brilliant extra activities have been sent in from home! You all look like you are having lots of fun!

VE Day

Just a note to say: I am aware that other teachers have posted VE day work for today. I will be posting VE day work for Hawks on Friday. If you are taking Friday as a bank holiday then please do not feel you have to complete this work! 

Henry, Alex and Betsy have been busy doing some planting! It's very exciting watching them grow!

I was very excited when I found an eggshell outside my front door! I thought I would share it with you. I wonder what sort of bird hatched out of it?

Wednesday 6th May 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you have had a good week so far and are enjoying your work and time at home with your families!


Today for science we are going to be looking at flowers again but this time we are going to look at what makes up and flower and what flowers need to survive and grow. Usually I would have done some planting with you and we could watch our plants grow together. If you have the resources to do this at home then you can do so and watch your plant grow with your families! If not don’t worry, it isn’t necessary.

 

I have attached a power point and worksheet for you to do today. I would like you to be able to remember the labels and then write them on rather than just copy them on from the power point. As an extra challenge, could you also write on the function of each plant part underneath the label.

 

I have also attached a video and worksheet for what plants need to grow. Watch the video and then fill in the worksheet. If you can’t print out the worksheet, don’t worry! You could make a fact file on what you learnt from the video!

 

Have fun and I’m looking forward to seeing what you get up to!

 

Miss Currant :)

Mrs. Butt has been busy thinking about her environment and helping out the rubbish men by labelling her bins! Luckily she has Fred the food waste to keep watch!

Monday 4th May 2020

Good Morning Hawks! 

I hope you all had a brilliant weekend and managed to go outside even though it rained lots and lots! 

For this weeks learning you are thinking about the environment which we looked at a little bit when it was Earth Day! I hope you enjoy doing these tasks! Keep sending in what you are doing! It would be great to hear from everyone!

Some brilliant puzzles have been sent in! Well done! Very careful cutting and colouring!

Friday 1st May 2020 

Good Morning Hawks! 

 

Today is our art afternoon and we will be continuing to think about animals! Today I would like you to make a animal puzzle! I have attached instructions on how to make them below and attached pictures of mine :) I had lots of fun making mine and hope you enjoy making yours too! If you would just like to do a picture of the animal and not any scenery behind it then that is fine but make sure you draw your animal nice and big! 

 

Enjoy making your puzzle and enjoy the weekend! 

 

From, 

 

Miss Currant :) 

 

Puzzle Instructions 

1. Get a piece of paper, pencil, pen, pair of scissors and some colouring pens or pencils. 

2. Draw a picture of your favourite animal or animal character (make sure it fills the page if you are not doing any scenery behind it)

3. Go over your pencil lines with pen (you don't have to do this stage but I found it useful) 

4. Colour in your animal

5. Draw the scenery behind it 

6. Go over your pencil scenery lines with pen (you don't have to do this stage but I found it useful)

7. Colour in the scenery 

8. Cut up your picture into as many pieces as you want (the pieces don't have to be square but it might be easier to put them back together if they are! Make sure you don't cut them too small otherwise your puzzle will be super super difficult!)

9. Mix up the pieces 

10. Try to put it back together again! 

 

After you have done all of the stages you could test it on a grown up in your house! If they can do it then you could think of a grown up that you think would enjoy doing it and send it to them (you can think back to when you were writing addresses and see if you can remember how to do it). I have tested mine on my partner and now I am going to send it to my mum and dad! I will post some pictures about how they get on! 

 

 

Picture Instructions:

Some brilliant topic animal activities! So much wildlife from inside your houses!

Penny 

Hi Hawks Class,

 

It is Penny here!  I have been being looked after by Mrs Verrecchia for the last few weeks and we have been helping each other with our home learning. 

 

We have also been having some fun playing in the garden and making friends with a Blackbird who comes to visit us for food everyday.

 

Mrs V keeps showing me all the pictures of your brilliant home learning so keep sending the pictures in. I look forward to seeing them each week. 

 

Here are a couple of pictures of my home learning for you to see.

 

Lots of Love,

Penny

What a lovely garden some of our Hawks have drawn! Well done!

Some super maths has been sent in! Great work!

Some brilliant writing tasks! Well done everyone!

Some brilliant animal factfiles! We'll all be experts when we come back to school! We could make our own animal facts book, just like our favourite part of the books we usually read!

Wednesday 29th April 2020 

Good Morning Hawks! 

 

Today's science activity is all about the plants in your garden! Have a close look at them and see how many you can find! 

It would be lovely to see the gardens that you draw after! 

 

As an extra challenge it would be brilliant if you could label the different plants that you find! 

Have fun searching in your garden! We're lucky it's not raining today! (Yet)

 

From, 

 

Miss Currant :) 

Some of our Hawks have been searching for fossils! They look so cool! I wonder what else they saw in the Quarry?

Friday 24th April 2020

Good Morning Hawks!

 

Today is Friday so that means it is our Art day!

 

On Wednesday 22nd it was Earth Day. Every year on 22 April, Earth Day is celebrated around the world in over 192 countries. But this annual event is much more than a celebration – it’s an important day to raise awareness about looking after the environment.
If we want to keep our planet clean and safe for years to come, we need to reduce the amount of pollution we produce and fight against climate change. That’s why on Earth Day, over a billion people take part in activities to make the world a healthier place – from conferences and street marches, to art displays and beach clean-ups!

 

To take part I would like you to create an Earth day poster to remind everyone of the 3 important rules to ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’.

 

This means we are reducing the amount of waste we produce, reusing what we can for other purposes and recycling as many different materials we can!

Your poster can look however you would like it to! I have made an example one for inspiration. If you would like to do the same as mine you are welcome to but get your creative hats on too if you would like!

 

I am looking forward to seeing what you produce! I am going to put mine in the window with my rainbow!

Good Morning Hawks!

 

I hope you are having a good week so far and are having lots of fun!

 

For your Science this week I am sending you on a hunt (either in your garden or on your next walk). We are thinking about plants in Science now and I want you to see how many of these wild plants you can find when you are next outside! There is an extra challenge at the bottom to draw 2 different plants or flowers that you see when you are outside! Don’t worry if you can’t find them all, some might not grow near you :) 

P.E. will run the same as last term. Please continue to pick a P.E. activity off of the websites/sheets that I sent you last term or choose some Go Noodle videos to do!

 

Enjoy your week and I will talk to you again on Friday!

Good Morning Hawks!

 

Welcome back from your Easter break! I hope you had a brilliant time with your grown-ups and enjoyed the lovely weather that we had! I wonder if anyone saw the Easter bunny hopping around out there?

I have been very busy in my house doing some painting, some sewing and making cards for my family to cheer them up. Please send through any pictures of what you have been doing over Easter!

 

Just like the weeks before the Easter holidays, I have posted your weekly work in the attachment called ‘Week 3’. It runs the same as before and your spellings are ready on spelling shed for you to have a go on.

For the next few weeks we have some new phonics resources! I have attached the link for this on the weekly plan. It is a website called Oxford Owl and there are lots of free games, books and sounds that you can practice on there (adults have a look and then you can pick what you want your child to do that day. It is very similar to the program that we would usually run in school). There is no school login for this site but there is no charge for using it. You only need to register to be able to use it and registering does not take long :) 

 

I will post your science and art later in the week. I can’t wait to see what you are going to create this week! Remember to keep having lots of fun!

Some great pieces of Literacy from some of our Hawks! Well done guys!

Wow! Look at these Easter crafts that everyone has done! They are brilliant! Happy Easter everyone!

Great extra home learning activities Hawks! You all look like you're having a great time!

Friday 3rd April 2020 

Good Morning Hawks and welcome to the last day of the Spring term!! 

 

You are about to start the Easter holidays, and your grown ups can have a break from teaching you! Well done on all of your work this week! You have sent me some really great pieces! I can see you are working very hard and doing some great extra learning at home as well! 

 

Today is Friday so it's your Art task today! Seeing as it's so close to Easter we thought that you could do some Easter art today! Your Art task today has been set by Mrs Duery & Mrs Butt (instructions below this message) who have been missing you all and thinking of some great activities for you. 

 

I hope you enjoy your task and have a fabulous Easter break! You are a brilliant class and I really miss seeing you in school. I look forward to seeing you when school is able to return to normal!

 

Love from, 

 

Miss Currant :) 

 

Mrs Duery: Hi Hawks Class. Here is a picture (and instructions) of the Easter card I made earlier this week. I also wanted to make an Easter Bonnet but didn’t have one at home, so instead, I’ve made an Easter Band. It looks a bit funny but that’s all part of the fun! I would love to see some pictures of you wearing an Easter bonnet or whatever you can make at home. I am missing you all so much and can’t wait to see you again when we come back to school! Have a wonderful Easter Love from Mrs Duery ( don’t eat too much chocolate xx)

Mrs Butt has come up wit this brilliant card for you to make! If you are feeling super creative you could try and make both!

Great work writing to a landmark! I wonder which other landmarks everyone wrote to?

Great work looking at your house and making a family flag!

Great work on materials and their properties! I can see you had fun testing all of the materials! I wonder how everyone else got on?
