Spring 2

Hello Puffins and Penguins!


We hope you managed to have an enjoyable and restful half term break. Now that we begin a new half term, our new topic is called 'Fantastic Females'. We will be learning about a range of influential females including Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole, Edith Cavell, Grace Darling, Mary Anning, Rosa Parks and Emeline Pankhurst.

 

In English, we begin a new book-led topic where we will be reading 'George's Marvellous Medicine' by Roald Dahl. The first two weeks of lessons will build up to writing a set of instructions for your own marvellous potion. In maths, we will continue our final week learning about fractions before moving on to learning about capacity. 

 

We would like you to read daily with your child. You can find a range of online e-books on the Oxford Owl website:

 Spring 2 Text - George's Marvellous Medicine

This half term we will be reading 'George's Marvellous Medicine' by Roald Dahl.

 

This story is about a young boy, George, who is forced to stay with his witchlike grandmother, with a penchant for eating bugs. However, considering her elderly state, she must have her medication each day, and her grandson must bring it to her. George, being the curious young boy he is, decides he will instead create his own medicine for her, just to kind of shake her up a bit.

He begins to look all around the house and the barn for all sorts of medicines, lotions, creams, paints; just about anything he could get his hands on to mix up for the medicine. When he is finally complete, he gives the medicine to his granny, causing some rather unexpected results...

Lesson 1 - Making Potions!

 

In today's lesson, we introduce you to our new core text, 'George's Marvellous Medicine' by Roald Dahl. As part of your guided reading task for today, we ask you to listen to a recorded reading of the first part of the book. You may want to do this before carrying out today's English lesson.

 

Watch our video below of us making our own disgusting, marvellous potion! Can you spot the nouns that we are adding to our potion? Remember that a noun is a person, place or thing. Once you have watched us making our potion, can you write down a list of nouns that you are going to add to your potion? Fill up the cauldron on the worksheet provided. You may even want to make your own potion to get inspired! If not, there is an ingredients list provided for inspiration...

Lesson 5 - Roald Dahl Words

Roald Dahl is an author known for his interesting and wondrous words. He creates these words himself and includes them in his books. In today's lesson, you have the chance to explore these wondrous words! At school, we are going to have a Roald Dahl word hunt around the classroom so you may want to do the same at home. Once you've found all of the words you can discuss together what they mean.

 

Once discussed, can you use them in the correct context? For example: ‘George’s grandma is such a grunion.’ Which was your favourite word and why?

Lesson 5 - Fractions Problem Solving

 

To conclude our final week of our fractions unit, we will be looking at some problem solving and reasoning tasks. Using your knowledge of fractions from the last 3 weeks of learning, can you have a go at working through some of the word problems? You can choose which sheet you would like to do or you can do both! You may want to work through these with an adult first before having a go on your own. 

 

Remember the methods you have been taught to find fractions of an amount and apply these today such as a part whole model. Use concrete resources wherever possible to support your learning (any objects from home that you can find!).

Lesson 6 - Imperative Verbs

 

 

Imperative verbs are sometimes referred to as ‘bossy verbs’. They are often used to give a command. 

To practise this skill, play a game of 'Simon Says' focusing on which words are the imperative verbs.

For example: 

'Sit down' - the imperative verb is 'sit'.  

'Stop what you're doing right away' - the imperative verb is 'stop'.

 

Imperative verbs will be used in the children's set of instructions at the end of this week to command someone what to do to make their potion (explore those above). For today's task, you can complete the worksheet below by writing a list of commands that begin with imperative verbs (these can be about anything). Or, you may want to complete a practical task and ask your child to use imperative verbs to tell you how to do something e.g. how to make a sandwich, to make their lunch, how to play a game, how to build a lego model.

This week our maths learning focus is capacity. Take a look at the video below to view a short introduction to capacity and volume. 

 

 Can you fill a beaker to full, half full, nearly full, nearly empty and empty? 

Can you find a large container and a small container? How many times do you need to refill the small container to fill up the large container? Perhaps you can test this with a range of different containers? What do you notice about filling up tall containers? What do you notice about filling up wide containers?

 

If you would like to follow up the practical learning you can order these images to help you understand the concept of capacity. There are 1* 2* and 3* options. 1* is more than adequate in embedding the concept.

Lesson 7 - Adverbs 

 

An adverb is a word which tells us how, when or where something happens. For the purpose of writing instructions, the children will most likely be using an adverb to tell us how something happens. It is a word that is describing and adding more information to the verb. 

 

For example:

Pour in a can of sticky, brown paint carefully  (carefully is the adverb)

 

For today's task, you are given a variety of sentences with words missing. Can you select the most appropriate adverb from the adverb bank to fill in the gap? As an extension, can you write your own sentences that include an adverb?

To tie in with our new topic book by Roald Dahl, we will be having a brief look at another of his famous stories, 'James and the Giant Peach'. There are similarities between the characters of this book and those of George's Marvellous Medicine which we will look at later this week. For today's task, read the blurb of the James and the Giant Peach story or have an adult read it to you and on the worksheet below complete your predictions (write or draw).

 

What do you predict the magical gift is? What will it do? What will he do with it?

 

Lesson 2 Worksheet

Maths

Today we are going to be making comparisons within capacity. We will be using > greater than (more than) and < less than as a means of embedding learning taught previously in the year. A good way to explain this to your child is reminding them that the 'crocodile' always like to eat the bigger quantity so it's mouth is always facing the larger number/amount.

Lesson 9 - Introduction to Instructions

 

Today, you will be writing an enticing introductory paragraph to your instructions on how to make a marvellous potion before writing the instructions tomorrow. This should not be lengthy and should introduce what your potion is for. Often, such introductions include a rhetorical question to interest the reader. This is a question that does not require an answer. For example: 

 

Do you have a horrigust old grunion of a Grandma that you want to make disappear? Well, look no further than this uckyslush potion!

 

 

 Can you include Roald Dahl language from lesson 5 last week?

Can you add the equipment you might need? E.g. enormous saucepan, wooden mixing spoon, apron so they don’t get messy etc. Complete on the sheet below.

Lesson 4 - Comparison

Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker

 

For this final lesson looking further into another of Roald Dahl's stories, we will be using our knowledge of the characters from George's Marvellous Medicine and James and the Giant Peach and comparing them to characters from other books. You may have noticed some similarities between George and James, and George's Grandma and James' two Aunts. 

 

Can you decide if they are good characters or bad characters? Once you have done so, think about all of the other books you have read before (not just Roald Dahl ones) and think about whether there are any characters in those books that are bad or good too, just like Roald Dahl's characters. You may want to think about the characters from our previous topic books or characters from fairytales. For example, James' aunts are cruel like the teacher in the book Beegu who kicked her out of the playground.

Lesson 2 – Step 2 Apply: What different things make people sad then happy?

LEARNING OBJECTIVE: I can identify feelings of sadness/happiness in different situations and for different people

 

  • Use different scenarios to explore different responses to different situations.

E.g. – fall over and hurt yourself, going to the cinema, going on holiday, trying something new

  • Discuss “do different things make us sad then happy?”

“Are there some things make us sad then happy?” 

  • ACTIVITY

 Draw pictures and annotate

What makes me sad                             What makes me happy

If you would prefer to simply discuss... this is fine!

Can you listen to the sound clips above and think about what parts of Grace Darling's story they link to?

What can you hear in each clip? 

What part of the story does it sound like? 

What can you imagine happening? 

You may wish to refer to last Friday's video to remind yourself of Grace's story.
