                                       Good Morning Travellers!   How are your journeys going?


Excellent research and information writing, yesterday.  You've been busy finding out about lots of different forms of transport.... submarines, Zeppelin airships, fancy cars, trains and aircraft.  We've also had people travelling all over the place, again... even to other planets!
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 Wicks and Mrs Acheson! 

 

 Today, Mr Gamble is doing  
Collective Worship, so please join in by going to the Class 3 page or the  New Articles Page

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/
                                                                                                                                                                                                 
Reading and Writing Activity
 - Sequencing events

Listen to Hey! Get off our Train


After you have listened to the story, think about the things that  happened on the journey.
Who is the driver?
Do you think the author is sending a message? Think about endangered animals 

Make a list of the key events, then put them in  time order.
Write a sentence for each main event and draw illustrations. You could draw speech bubbles to show what the characters said.
You could do each event in a train carriage, like the picture below.  Then create an engine at the front. 
You can draw your own squares and circles to make the train or print some carriages like this one:
 
 -train story strip template.doc-  You might need more than one template

There's also a wordmat with lots of useful words that you might need. -Oi-get-off-our-train-wordmats.pdf-  
 

Phonics and Spelling:
Practise spelling  the Common Exception words using this online game, ‘Spooky Spelling’
C
lick on the picture to begin.

 
 

Also, please write your spelling words into the spelling log and practise reading and writing the words, ready for tomorrow's test.
Year 1 - Words with the spelling 'wh' and 'ph'

Maths:

KIRFs Practise you KIRFs target ready for the test tomorrow. 
                   
                                                                                                                

Collecting transport data and Tally charts                                                                                                                                                                    Year 1 and Year 2
Watch BBC bitesize clip about tally charts  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zjbcd2p                                                                                             

Look through the window or ask an adult to go outside with you.                                                                                       
Make a tally of the different types of transport that passes by.                                                                                                       
Can you record this information in a bar chart or pictogram?

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

 
Answers to yesterday's challenge:

 


 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/

 

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
