If I could fly….

What do you think it would be like if you could fly?

Today I want you to do some writing for me starting with, If I could fly…….

Think about some of these questions to help add lots of detail to your work:

How would you fly? Would you have wings or a flying machine?

What would it feel like?

Where would you go and what would you see?

Remember to write in clear sentences, use finger spaces and add lots of detail! I can’t wait to read them.

After you have done your writing, can you draw a picture to go with it? It could be of you in your wings or your flying machine or what you see when you are flying!

Story time!

Here is a story for you to enjoy!

Maths

Today we are going to be looking at quarter, half and three quarter turns. I will give you a few ideas to get you started, but as usual you can always come up with your own activities too.

When we turn we can turn clockwise, which is the same way a clock hand moves, or anti-clockwise. If you put an object in front of you and turn it clockwise you will turn it to your right.

Get an object and practise turning it quarter, half and three quarter turns clockwise.

You can stand still and a family member can tell you to turn quarter, half and three quarter turn clockwise too.

You can also draw or cut out 2 of the same images and practise sticking them down according to the turn you are given like the image below.

On Seesaw I have also set you a simple task. It is the first time I have had a go at this, as I am learning just like you, so fingers crossed it all works ok!! (Mrs Plant)

Music

In Music we like to listen to different songs to appraise them. Choose one of your favourite songs and answer the following questions.

Why do you like the song?

What instruments can you hear?

What is the style of music? – rap, blues, pop, gospel etc.

How is the song put together? Does it have a chorus? Does it have an instrumental?

Now have a go at creating your own piece of music using 2Beat on Purple Mash. Click on 8.1.2021 My Music in your 2DOs. I look forward to hearing what you create.
