                                                      Good Morning Travellers!   How are your journeys going?!

                                                     Let's begin today with a short clip about different vehicles from the past.  
                                                                      Click on the Galley to begin:
                                          
  

The Travel Project learning has got off to an excellent start.  We had people travelling all over the place, yesterday!
...in Ferraris, Rolls Royce cars, tractors, rockets and even a flying saucer! I've already had some amazing work sent in.
I hope you have more fun on your travels today.


Here are today's activities.  You can do them in any order and you don't have to do them all if you don't have enough time, but please work hard on the activities that you choose to do.
F
or those of you who are in school today, have fun with Mrs Matthews and Mrs Acheson! 



Today, Mrs Hebblewhite is doing  
Collective Worship, so please join in by going to the Class 1 page or the School News Page



 P.E:

Maybe you would like to 'wake up and shake up' with some exercise or perhaps later in the day.  Choose a time when you will do some exercise today. Have you decided what you're going to do?  Maybe more than one thing.  You might like to do one of the activities below, or maybe go for a walk, run or do some cycling. 
 You could do an exercise routine with Joe Wicks, find a fun activity on GoNoodle or try something new like yoga:  https://www.harrogatessp.com/keeping-all-young-people-active/

 



Reading:


I hope that you are enjoying reading  stories and information books about vehicles and transport, from your bookshelf at home.
Try to spend at least twenty minutes reading. This can be reading a book aloud or sharing a book with an adult. 

Year 2 -You can do an AR quiz when you have finished your  book: https://ukhosted79.renlearn.co.uk/6706937/

Your task today, is to use your reading skills to find information to use in the writing activity, below:                                                                                                                                                                                                    
Writing:
 
Information Writing
Choose a vehicle that you are interested in. 
Today, I would like you to create a fact file about the vehicle.  
Find out what the vehicle was like in the past and then write information about what it is like now.
You might also find information about future plans for the vehicle.


There is some information in the this week's Travel Learning Project (below).  
You might also have books to find facts, or you could search on the internet.  

Remember to include 'for children' in your search:
eg.  'Information for children about boats'   or 'Information for children about trains'  
Hopefully, the search will then give you some information that isn't too difficult to read and understand.

 
Grammar:  
Can you list adjectives to describe ten  vehicles from the past or the present time?
Try to use alliteration e.g. charging chariot, valuable van.   

Phonics and Spelling:
Please write your spelling words into the spelling log
Year 1 - Words with the spelling 'wh' and 'ph'
Year 2 – Common excedption words
Please write 3 sentences, each with at least one of the words from your spelling list.

Year 1 and Year 2
Choose one of your books, then find 3 items which are heavier than the book and 3 items which are lighter than the book. 
Then weigh the objects and the book to see if you were right.  Write down your the weight of each object.

Maths Challenges:  
Also, for those of you who would like to do a maths challenge.  Have a go at these questions! 
 


Answers for yesterday's challenge:

 

Be kind and help others
Have you done anything to help someone else today?  Try to do a kind act for someone else. It might be to help with something or it might be to do something to cheer up another person.  A friendly wave and smile through the window can mean a lot to someone who is lonely.

Transport Learning Project
This week you will be learning more about transport.  You might find out  about different typs of transport, transport in the past or the science behind transport.  You could also learn about road safety and how to be safe around water. 
               
                                                                     

Wacky Wheels- Can you investigate bicycles from the past to the present?                                                                            

How have they changed? 
Make a timeline of drawings of bikes through time
Have a look at the powerpoint slides below, to see lots of pictures and information about bicycles from the past.
The powerpoint might go into your downloads file.  Open the powerpoint into ‘slideshow’ so that you see everything.
 
  -t-he-052-the-history-of-the-bike-powerpoint_ver_1.ppt-  

Can you create a design for a bike in the future?
 
 

 
   Transport Through Time!-  
Look through these slides to find out what changes have taken place. 
Make sure you open the powerpoint into ‘slideshow’ so that you see everything.

-How Has Transport Changed.ppt-  

-History of transport.pptx- 
 
 Pictures showing the first cars -History of the car.pdf-  

 Pictures showing early space travel -History of space travel-V299535281.pptx-  

Activities that you might like to do:
Create a timeline of transport from the past to the present.
Find out about the first aeroplanes. Who was the first person to fly in one?
Find out about the first trains?  Who invented the first train?
 You could make a poster or fact file. 

Create a booklet about different forms of transport. You can choose which form of transport to write about:
You might want to do some more fact finding about rockets?
How about sports cars and racing cars?
Maybe, you are interested in sea travel – ships, submarine, boats, yachts? Perhaps trains or tractors?

Transport around the world Do all countries have the same types of transport? Investigate different forms of travel across the world.  Here’s a slide show for you to start your fact finding:

  -t-t-4891-transport-around-the-world-powerpoint_ver_2.ppt-  
 
Maybe you could make a poster or a report about the transport used in a different country.

Moving Models-
Find some junk modelling around the house and a make a model car that moves.
If you prefer, you could make a model car from lego or a different construction kit.
Test it out in the garden or during your daily walk.
Does the car move faster or slower on a ramp? Why/why not?

 
Float your Boat!


Using a variety of materials to make boats out of junk e.g. wood, plastic , paper,  polystyrene etc.
Make a prediction about whether or not they will float and then test them to see which floats the longest. Can you write a report about which boat floated for the longest and why?
 
Brilliant Boats
  • Use tinfoil to create a simple boat design.
  • Try testing it by seeing how many coins it will hold.
  • What shape makes the best boat?
  • Don’t forget to recycle the tinfoil after using it!
Work hard, be kind and have a fun day. I will be back with you tomorrow!
Missing you all,
Love from Mrs Micklefield
