Moving on up!
Monday 13th July 2020
Good morning everybody and welcome to the final week of learning. School will be finishing for most children on Thursday before you break up for the summer holiday. When you return in September you will be in a new year group which is another change that you will experience. Throughout this week, we would like you to reflect on how you feel about this change.
To begin with, we would like you to work on creating leaflets that give important information to the children who will be coming into year 2 in September. Today you will start your leaflet which you will continue to work on throughout the week so keep it in a safe place.
For maths, we would like you to work on multiplication. For today's session you will be looking at equal groups and repeated addition which will help you write multiplication calculations. Follow the link within the PowerPoint to access the video for the session and complete the worksheet below.
Log on to Purple Mash for today's reading comprehension task.
With an adult, read the story about the 'Cautious Caterpillar' and discuss what you think the main idea is behind the story. What do you think 'cautious' means? Why was the caterpillar described as being cautious? How do you think it links to change?
Fun in the sun!

Good morning and welcome to a new week of learning!
We would like you to think about all of the different ways we can have fun in the sun. This week's learning activities will help you to do this.
For English, you will be learning about being safe in the sun and throughout the week will be creating a leaflet. For today's session, we would like you to design a front cover for your leaflet. Keep your leaflet so that you can add to it throughout the week.
For your maths session, we would like you to compare lengths. Do you remember the mathematical symbols we can use to compare amounts? Well these can also be used to compare lengths. Click on the link to access the session and either print or copy the worksheet from below.
Log on to Purple Mash to complete your reading task for today.
To get into the spirit of summer, we would first like you to design and make your own bunting. You can copy the template or print it. Next, we would like you to design your very own delicious ice-cream. Think about the flavour of the ice-cream you would have, the toppings and the shape of the cone. Later, if you have lego or any construction toys at home, have a go at creating your own funfair ride.
One of the ways that people enjoy the summer is by travelling to different countries around the world. When they travel, they get to see cultures and traditions that are different to their own. You get to experience a new story each day that is from a different part of the world. Watch and listen to today's story by clicking on the link on the slide for Monday from the PowerPoint.
Have fun and enjoy learning!
Find your brave
Monday 29th June 2020
Good morning, everyone! We hope you have had a super weekend.
Continuing with the story 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Phillip Pullman, for today's English session you will work on finding the meaning of words. You will need a pencil and some paper to write on ready before you begin. Follow the link to access the lesson.
For maths today you will be working on finding three quarters. You will need the worksheet and the video which you can access by clicking on the link. Remember you can print the sheet or copy it by hand.
You have a new book to work through for your reading comprehension task on Purple Mash.
The theme for this week is 'find your brave' and is based on the story 'Beegu' by Alexis Deacon. You will be completing activities based on the story. Watch and listen to 'Beegu' by following this link.
Beegu needs to get home. Can you design a rocket for her to use to get back? Follow the instructions on the PowerPoint to design your rocket first. You will need a bottle and some craft materials or use what you can find at home. It make take a some time for your rocket to dry so you might have to decorate on another day.
After this, we would like you to draw and name Beegu's mum and dad. We want you to think of the digraphs and trigraphs that you have learnt through phonics and use them to come up with a name for Beegu's mum and dad.
Remember you can share your work on our class blog.
Have fun and enjoy!

Good morning everyone. Welcome to a new week of fun learning. This week is Virtual Sports Week at Godwin Primary. We would like you to take part in the daily activities and keep track of your scores after each activity. It would be great if your adults join in as well. If you can, take some photos and email them to the schools. Details and videos of the daily tasks can be found here: https://www.godwinprimary.co.uk/virtual-sports-week/
Click on the link for today's English session, where you will use what you learnt in last week to write a character description about Hamlet the white elephant. Remember to have your pencil and paper ready and to pause the video when you need to.
In your maths lesson you will learn a few different ways to find a quarter. Once you have clicked on the link, you will need to watch the video 'Week 1 - Lesson 5 - Find a quarter'. You will also need a copy of the worksheet 'Monday Maths: Find a quarter (either printed or copied by hand). Here is the link:
On Purple Mash, you will find your reading comprehension activities for today.
Both D.T. and art are based on our theme 'superheroes'. In D.T. you will be designing and making a shield for your very own superhero. We want you to be as creative as possible by using different materials that you have at home. Through the art PowerPoint, you will learn to draw a range of superheroes by following the link on each slide. By the end of the week, you should have drawn 4 or more characters. Cut these characters out to make them into puppets by sticking a lolly stick or some strong card on the back of each one. You will then work on creating a short scene using the storyboard template. Once you have done this, you can act out and record the scene using your puppets. This could be done on a phone, Ipad or an app like 'Puppet Pals' (available free on Apple and Android phones).
We look forward to seeing any learning that you want to share on our class blog and hope you have an enjoyable day.

Hello everyone! Welcome to our second week of learning, we hope you have had an enjoyable weekend in the sun.
Click on the link to access today's English lesson. You will be writing a set of instructions based on the story 'The Firework Maker's Daughter'. Remember to have your paper and pencil ready before you begin and pause the video when you need to catch up.
For maths, you will be continuing your work from last week on the 'equals' symbol. You will look at how it can be used in both addition and subtraction number sentences that give the same value.
In art, we want you to think about how we are still part of our school community even though we are not in our normal routine. We want you to create a display based on the colours of a rainbow and send virtual hugs, high-fives and smiles (all things we can do from a distance). You can put your display up somewhere in your houses like in the window for people to see.
Last Thursday, you reflected on how change can be tricky and how somethings stay the same whilst others look different once we go through a change. When you download 'HUK Back 2 School - Monday' it will allow you to think about those things that you have been missing and also those that you are looking forward to which give you hope and make you feel good.
Don't forget to also complete the reading activity on Purple Mash and to upload pictures (if you want) to our class blog.
For your first maths lesson of the week, we would like you to warm up by reading the different 2-digit numbers on the first slide. Afterwards, put them in order. You could arrange them from the least or most valuable, smallest or largest coin or any other way that you can think of. For the main part of the lesson, we would like you to explore money. Try to identify the different coins and then attempt the investigations at the end of the PowerPoint. If you or your family have any coins in the house, use them. You could draw coins if you don’t have any available. Don’t forget to upload any work that you do to our blog. Have fun!
