Dear Home Learners and Home Learning Support Crew,

Welcome to our short, snap Remote and Flexible Learning 5.0! It is challenging to be here again, but we are resilient and we are optimistic, and we’ve got this down-pat by now, so we will be fine!! We are here to support you in any way we can during this time.

You will be able to access each day’s learning activities below. These activities will go live each day between 4-5 pm.

There will also be a PDF attached for each day, if you prefer to print it out.  As always, we understand that not all of you will be able to do the activities and the learning in the scheduled time or on the scheduled day. Please feel free to change things to suit your own family, your device availability and your own time availability to assist your child.

We have tried to ensure the learning is independent learning, with a minimum of adult assistance- but thank you in advance for the support that many of you will be giving your children.

Our WebEx classrooms will be open from 12:00 until 1:00 each day, and we would love to see students or parents pop in and say hello, share work or ask questions.

We will be holding small groups each day and will send out the times for the small groups .

We will be adding activities to the Extra Activities page and the Extension Activities page over the coming days, should students want more activities to continue on with when their learning is finished for the day.

Good luck, and please have fun! We miss our students already- and look forward to seeing them all for our open classroom and our small groups each dayy.

Our WebEx classrooms are:

Reading  (30 mins) Reading small groups

First:

Write in your learning goal: I know how pictures are used in non fiction texts

Next:

See your class roster for your small group time slot and bring along your book report to share with the group and the book you chose to use.

Independent Reading (10 minutes)

Spend 10 minutes doing Independent Reading. You may want to choose a nonfiction book from Reading Eggs or PM Online.

Practise your reading goal while you are reading.

Writing (30 mins)  Diagrams

Write the learning goal in your book.

LG: I know what a diagram is

First, Look at this diagram below.

This is a diagram. A diagram is a picture that gives us information about something through labeling the picture!

You can see that it shows us where the flower, stem, leaf and roots are by drawing a line directly from the parts.

Next, you are now going to have a go at making your own diagram by labeling parts of your body!

Then, draw an outline of your body on your page like the one below and label it using the word mat below for ideas and to help you spell!

In your diagram, try to include some of the facts that you wrote about in your “My Body” section of your All About Me  Information text. For example, if you wrote that you have brown eyes, colour the eyes in your diagram brown and label them.

You made your own diagram! Well done!

Maths (30 mins) Shapes Location (30 mins)

Learning Goal: I can draw a birds eye view map.

Yesterday we learnt about birds eye view maps.

Remember, we call it this because its what a bird would see fly above us and looking down.

This week we would like you to have a go at drawing a birds eye view map of your bedroom, or another special room in your house. Make sure your map takes up the whole page.

First, pick a special room in your house and imagine what the room would look like if you were staring down at it from the ceiling.

Next, draw a birds eye view map of your room. Make sure it takes up the whole page in your scrapbook.

Then, use labels and colours to finish off your map.

Here is an example of a birds eye view map of a bedroom.
(Challenge: draw a birds eye view map of your whole house, or even your neighbourhood)

Monday Week 3 Term 3
Reading (30 mins)

First,

Write in your learning goal:  I know why pictures are used in nonfiction texts

 

Information texts often include pictures to help us understand the information.

The pictures that are used in information texts are usually photos or diagrams (drawings that show facts).

Next:

Below are 2 different information texts. Choose the one that is the right reading level for you.

Easier- tigers pictures

Harder-tas devil pictures

At the bottom of the facts are some pictures that go with the facts.

Option 1: IF YOU CAN PRINT OUT THE SHEET…

Read the facts, then cut out the pictures and glue them next to the fact that they match.

One of the facts is missing a picture- you should draw a picture next to it that shows that fact.

 

Option 2: IF YOU CAN’T PRINT THE SHEET…

Tigers

Write each of the headings down and write the number of the picture that goes with it.

You can draw your own version of the picture next to the heading.

Tasmanian Devils-

Write down the numbers of the picture, and the fact from the sheet that goes with the picture.

You can draw your own version of the picture next to the heading.

One of the facts is missing a picture- you should draw a picture next to it that shows that fact.

 

 

ANSWERS Tasmanian Devil pictures

 

Then:

Independent Reading (10 minutes)

Spend 10 minutes doing Independent Reading. You may want to choose a nonfiction book from Reading Eggs or PM Online.

Practise your reading goal while you are reading.

Writing (30 minutes) Prefixes and Suffixes

Write the learning goal in your book.

LG: I know what prefixes and suffixes are

First, watch this video on YouTube

Next, Write these words in your book

  • Submarine
  • Unfair
  • Reopen
  • Undoing
  • Decode
  • Nonsense
  • Export
  • Misplace
  • Kindness
  • Careful

Then, read back through these words (you might need some help from a family member) and decide which words have a prefix and which words have a suffix.

Remember that a prefix is at the beginning of a word and a suffix come after.

You can colour in Prefixes in blue and suffixes in red or any two different colours that you choose is fine!

Here is Shannon’s example:

submarine

kindness

Challenge: Come up with your own prefix and/or suffix words.

Maths Small Groups (30 minutes) – Shape & Location

Wednesday Week 2 Term 3
Reading  (30 mins) Headings and subheadings

Write in your learning goal- LG: I can use subheadings to sort facts

We learned yesterday that headings tell us what a whole text is about, and subheadings break that information up into parts.

Ant was making a fact sheet about Australia, but all his facts got jumbled!

Help him to create his fact sheet about Australia by finding the facts that go with each subheading.

Choose the level that is right for you-Easy, Middle or Challenging, and look at the sheet and instructions for that level.

You can print out the sheet and cut up the facts to go with each subheading.

If you can’t print the sheet, write the subheadings and choose 1 or 2 facts to write under each subheading.

You will see some subheadings and some facts. You have to sort out which facts belong with which subheadings.

Put a heading at the top of your work- AUSTRALIA

 

Easy

PDF Download-Australia Subheadings and facts Easy

At school last week we were learning about changing and combining different materials for a certain purpose….to make a toy!

Since we’re at home this week, we’re going to have a go at using things from around our house to make a super cool toy. Today we’re going to make the plan.

First, have a think about what kind of toy you would like to make. Some options are…

  • Board games
  • A doll house
  • A stuffed/hard toy

Next, think about what materials you will need to make your toy and check around your house to make sure you have them. For example, if you want to make a doll house you might check for a shoe box.

Finally, draw a plan of the toy you want to make and write a list of the different materials you’ll need. Keep in mind that you should be able to make your toy on your own 🙂

Some ideas:

Tomorrow we’ll use our plans to start making our toys.

Mindfulness  Mindful seeing

First, sit down somewhere in your home.

Next, find something in the room and focus all of your attention on it. Try to pick something you might not have noticed before. Like a crack in the ceiling, or a piece of fluff on the carpet. What do you notice? What does it look like?

Then, repeat a few more times, mindfully watching each thing for about 1 minute.

Writing (30 minutes)

Learning Goal: I can collect and use interesting words in my writing.

First, get a pencil and your writing book. You are going to collect some words from the story that you listen to, then write a narrative using some of those interesting words!

Next, listen to Arnie the Doughnut, read by Chris O’Dowd.

As you watch, listen out for interesting words. You may want to pause the video and write down some of your favourite ones.

Then, choose some of the interesting words used in the story from the list below, or choose some of your own from the story, and include them in your own narrative. You can add to this narrative over the next few days, but get started today and remember to include interesting words. (If you need to, you can ask a grown-up to help you understand a couple of them!)

Maths (30 minutes)    Features of a 2-D Shape

Learning goal: I know the features of 2D shapes.

Yesterday we learnt about the features of 2-D shapes in our small group. We learnt that 2D shapes have sides. Sides are the lines that go around the outside of the shape that helps us name the shape. The sides can be straight or curved.

We also learnt that 2D shapes have corners. Corners are where 2 sides meet to make a point.

First, Open your book to the table you started during the small group session.

Next, finish the table by filling in the amount of  sides and corners for the shapes you had not finished.

If your group looked at angles yesterday, fill this part in as well.

 

Extra challenge- do you know any other shapes that you could pop into your table and count their sides and corners?

 

Then, build all the shapes you learnt about yesterday with some building materials (popsicle sticks, toothpicks, rulers or pencils). Check they have the right amount of sides and corners.

Alternatively have a go at creating your shapes using this website.

https://apps.mathlearningcenter.org/geoboard/  (Chrome only)

After that, create a picture using as many shapes you can.

Extension: Find the angles of your shapes.

How big are the angles? Do they have any right angles, angles smaller than a right angle,(acute) or angles bigger than a right angle (obtuse)?

Challenge: Make a shape with your building materials that has more than 10 sides. Draw/trace your shape in your book.

Then,

  • List the number of sides
  • List the number of corners.
  • Colour all the right angles red.
  • Colour all the angles smaller than right angles
  • Colour all the angles bigger than a right angle blue.
Play based (30 minutes) Challenge Time-You choose!

  • Congratulations! You have been hired to design and create a new rollercoaster for an amusement park. Take a picture of your design/creation
  • NASA has asked you to build them a new rocket please! Draw a design before you start

Mindfulness:

First, put on this meditation

Magical Rocking Chair :

Next, Find somewhere to lay and make yourself comfortable.

Then, think about how you are feeling after the meditation and what zone you are in.

I felt calm and in the green zone.

Mindfulness: Write a letter to a friend

Did you know when we make other people feel good, it makes us feel good?

First, pick a friend that you miss when not at school.

Next, write a letter to them, telling them why they are so important to you, why you love getting to be their friend and what is special about them. You can give it to them when we are back at school!

Then, draw a picture to go with it.
