6K Memories

We want to wish a Happy 11th Birthday to Bobby!

Here are some of the amazing things you have been doing at home!

Writing

Today we are going to learn about Haiku poetry and practice our writing skills. 

What is a Haiku Poem?

 Haiku poetry is traditional in Japan. Each haiku only has 3 lines and the lines follow a pattern of syllables 5 – 7 – 5

 

Let’s count and clap the syllables together to the Haiku poem below:

 

 

 

Let’s have a go at writing a Haiku poem.

You can choose any theme you like for your poem.

You may want to plan by thinking of some key words. 

I have used a Summer theme for my Haiku poem.

I thought of some key words that remind me of Summer to help me when planning: 

Remember to count the syllables in each line to check the pattern matches the format.

5 – 7 – 5

My example: 

The ocean is cold

The sun blazing down on me

Let’s go for ice-cream. 

 

Have a go at creating your own Haiku poem.

We would love to see your ideas and poems!

The Seasons.

This term in science we are going to be looking at the seasons.

 

Each season has 3 months in each. The Winter months are December,January and February. Spring months are March,April and May. Summer months are June,July and August. Autumn months are September,October and November.

Can you remember how many months are in a year?

How many days are in a week?

We are in the month of June which is in Summer. We need to protect ourselves from the hot sun outside and the short video below will explain all about what we have to do.

 

 

 

Here is a reminder of what you need to keep yourselves safe and protected from the sun outside.

Can you choose which weather we get in what season?

Depending on the season we wear different clothes, can you say what season you will wear these clothes?

Challenge

Lets describe the seasons ?

Here are some words to start you off…. warm,cloudy,hot,green and fresh.

Can you think of any of your own? Maybe you could put them into a sentence?

Can you remember what describing words are called?

Maybe you could draw a picture of one of the seasons and send it in for us to look at :

Let’s get moving!

Kerry, Gaynor and Katie are focusing on exercise this week.

We have a positive mindset by being active and exploring the outdoors.

What is your favourite exercise or activity? 

How do you feel after you have exercised? 

It is really important to be as active as we possibly can. Have a look at the video below to see the reasons why people exercise and ideas on what we can do to stay active.

Last week we started to look at different places, focusing on their physical and human features. This week we are exploring different areas and their features. We have taken some photos for you explore and label. 

What features can you see?

Have you been out walking?

You may have even explored a new area. We would love to see your pictures on staying active and experiencing different places.

Challenge:

On your walk, take a photo with a geography feature that you can name.

Search on google maps to find different types of geography features.

Explore different countries and climates. What features do they have that are different to what we have?

6K have been having a wonderful time learning at home and keeping up with Ladywood peers. 

Take a look below…

A very creative alien robot and that sunflower is growing very tall. You are amazing!

We cannot wait to see you on our weekly zoom chat on Friday (19th of June) we have some exciting things planned.

The details have been sent to you.

We would like to wish Ella a very Happy 11th Birthday today! We hope you have a wonderful day.

Please get in touch with any questions and keep sending your pictures and videos to: larch@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk

Geography learning

We are learning this half term in Geography all about different places in the UK and their human and physical features.

Rivington Pike is a hill on Winter Hill, part of the West Pennine Moors at Rivington, Chorley in Lancashire England.

Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales. It is located in Snowdonia national park.

Does anything look different or similar between the two places?

Maybe you could do some research to find out the following information:

Rivington Pike has a tower, how tall is it?

How high is Snowdon?

How long does it take to climb Snowdon?

Are Rivington and Snowdon near Bolton?

You could use :  

 

What is the climate like at Rivington and Snowdon.

Is it the same or different? If it is different do you know why?

You could go for a walk up Rivington but would hike up Snowdon as it is much steeper and harder to climb.

Here is a picture of myself climbing Snowdon. Can you see what equipment or clothes I am wearing, choose from the pictures below. What else do you think I would need?

Physical Geography is the Earths natural features, such as a mountain,grass and the coastline.

Human Geography is everything that is made and built by man.

 

Are these pictures of physical or human geography? Can you sort them correctly?

I would love to see pictures of you out walking and spotting lots of human or physical features.

Send you pictures to Larch@Ladywood.bolton.sch.uk

Special Delivery!

We were so lucky to be able to come and deliver a special box to lots of you today.

We loved seeing your happy faces and hearing all about what you have been getting up to.

We cannot wait to see what you create. Please send lots of pictures and videos to: larch@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk

Maths number!

Number

Lets warm up before we begin our learning. Join in with the video below and let’s count  and move together to 100.

What number can you count to?

I have used stickers on my video below to count to 10, try it with me!

Can you carry on to 20? or even 100!

Challenges to try:

Number bonds to 10
Number bonds to 20 

Below is a video of how you can practice number bonds to 10 at home. I have used twigs for my objects to help, you can use any 10 objects around your house or outside. You may want to try it without objects.

 

Pairs to 100

Challenge yourself and see how many pairs you can do that make 100!

Examples in 10’s     

 10 + 90 = 100 

30 + 70 = 100

Examples to try in 5’s

5 + 95 = 100

55 + 45 = 100

We would love to see your learning. Send in photos or videos to larch@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk   and we can add them on to this post 🙂
