English - Read Write Inc.
Today, we are revising the sounds we have looked at this week. Use the powerpoint to support you through the tasks.
Reading- The Secrets of the Tattered Shoes.
Here is the link for the story. Watch from 8:30-end
Can you find the meaning of these words?
A synonym is a word that means the same. (Big and large)
Read the passage below.
Answer these questions.
What will the soldier and the woman in the forest say to each other when they meet again?
Act out being the soldier and the woman when he finds her again in the forest. Consider what they would both say and use evidence from the page above. Write down the conversation between the soldier and the woman in the speech bubbles above.
Good to be me – ‘Feeling good about myself’
Think of all the things about you. Here are some examples below:
You enjoy reading, you support Liverpool, Pink is your favourite colour, you have a sister, you were in 1M last year.
Ask someone at home to tell you all about them.
Are you the same? No each one of us is different.
We are going to think about the things that we are good at - note down on some paper what you think you are good at.
Ask someone at home to add anything they think you are good at.
ACTIVITY – Create a profile sheet about yourself. You may want to ask someone at home to make sure you have included everything.
Lesson 3- What other animals can we find? You will use different instruments in relation to different animals. To recognise the different sounds of instruments.
Today you will need:
· A selection of instruments if you have any.
If you don’t have instruments, do not panic! Some options include rice in empty plastic bottles, crumpled cellophane, saucepans and wooden spoons, plastic buckets and a stick to hit them with!
· A piece of material (or a larger item of clothing).
Sing the song ‘Baby Shark’. Use the you tube link below if you want the music.
“I wonder if you can sing it as you fly about the room like a lark?”.
Now sing it again asking things such as, “I wonder how it would sound if the lark were flying very slowly/ quickly?”
Listen to a small section of Lark Ascending (e.g. 0-1min). Use the link below.
Can you remember what someone who writes music is called?
The solo instrument that is representing the lark is called the violin. Vaughan Williams is using this instrument to tell the story of the lark.
What do you think the lark is doing?
Where could the lark be flying to?
Put a selection of four or five instruments underneath a piece of material. This could include a drum, a shaker, a tambourine, a triangle, a chime bar, a wooden block etc.
With your adult come and pick one instrument from underneath the material.
Play the instrument. What animal do you think this sounds like?
Move like this animal as you play your instrument.
Choose another instrument and repeat but make it a different animal now.
Can you sing the same song that you sang at the beginning, but this time like the animals you thought of?
For example: · The snake could be slithering, so sing it really smoothly.
· The elephant could be slow and big, so sing it slowly in big voices.
It’ll really help if you move around the space like the animal!
