Whole School Phonics

Good Morning Everyone,

When learning your sounds, it’s really important to practice blending to make words. Today’s activity is all about building words, segmenting and blending together. It’s really easy to set up, all you need is post it notes or small pieces of paper and pens to write the sounds!

Below is an example.

Let’s see how many words you can make, Enjoy!

Join in with the DWJ Daily Art Challenge

Hello TEAM,

It’s Miss Percival here! I hope you have enjoyed your first week learning from home. I have really enjoyed looking at your fantastic work each day, especially the super artwork on Monday.

Inspired by your efforts, I am very excited to introduce the DWJ Daily Art Challenge beginning on Monday. Each weekday there will be a new theme, with a few prompts and ideas – the rest is up to you! I will be posting a calendar with the daily themes for the following week every Friday.

A few notes about the challenge:

· As with all of the resources we post, this is completely optional. It is there if you need some inspiration and feel like getting creative. You can take on the challenge of creating something daily, or you may only want to take part on some days – it’s up to you!

· Don’t worry if you don’t have lots of fancy art supplies – the more creative you can be with what you do have, the better.

· You don’t need to spend hours creating a masterpiece each day – some days you might do this, and other days it may be a quick doodle. Both are encouraged!

· The challenge isn’t just for children! Parents/carers and siblings, feel free get involved! Art is a great way to work together, have fun and relax during difficult times.

Most of all, if you do take part, don’t forget to share your fantastic creations with us using the email addresses below:

dwjs34.wood@taw.org.uk – Year 3/4 pupils

dwjs56.wood@taw.org.uk – Year 5/6 pupils

Below you will see the Daily Art Challenge calendar for next week, beginning with the theme “Me” on Monday.

I can’t wait to get started!

Time for a Design Technology Treat!

Good morning inventors, designers and engineers!

It is time to be creative! Today, your DT challenge is to look in your recycle bins and use whatever you have to design, construct and test a model.

Year 6: You must create a rain shelter (a model will do but you can make a big one if you want) that is monsoon proof. Using natural ways to join the parts, would be a bonus. If you have a garden, or go for a walk, look for some material to use.

Year 5: You must design and make the Infinite Possibility (the rocket in our book ‘Cosmic’). Adding any moving parts would be a bonus!

Year 4: You made guitars in DT. Can you make a range of different  musical instruments that can produce different sounds? It would be a bonus if you can include wind and string instruments.

Year 3: Make a toy (like the boats we made). It would be even better if they use a force to move.

Have a great day designing! Don’t forget to email in a picture of your models and there will be future prizes for the best ones.
