I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Have you read lots this week? What was your favourite book? Why did you enjoy it? What was it about? I would love to hear what books you have been reading. Send me an email and let me know.

Maths

For all groups today our maths warm up is playing hide and seek with 2D and 3D shapes, can you guess the shape?

Year 1- Your learning for today is to put your brains to the test using both ½ and ¼ of shapes and amounts which you have been practising this week.

Remember to practise your times tables with Times Tables Rock Stars.

Blue group: Your learning today is to add more to help the wizard to create his spell. At the end you can draw what you think the wizard has made with his fantastic spell. Remember to count carefully by touching the creatures and take care when you write the numbers. I look forward to seeing what you think the wizard has created.

Year 2:  Click on the link for hit the button (or you can download the app) Choose times tables and on the right where it is titled hit the question. Practise your 2, 5 and 10 times tables. How many can you get correct?

Can you find the missing numbers to help Detective Dog complete his calculations?

Challenge: Now test yourself on how well you know your times tables!

(You will need to choose a time to complete each question in.)

Literacy

Have you worked out what we are going to do today in Literacy? Yes, you guessed it! You are going to write a description of your new pair of roller skates.

I have copied information from last week to remind you what you need to do.

Write sentences using each line of the planning chart to help you. Don’t forget a capital letter to start your sentence and a full stop at the end. You can also use conjunctions and, but, because, so that to write longer sentences.

Here is an example.

My wheeled toy is a bike. It is new and I had it for Christmas.

It has two shiny, silver handle bars at the front so I can hold on tightly and steer it in the right direction. It has a long, metal brake on the right handle bar to help me to stop safely.

You can change the order of your planning chart to write your sentences if you wish to make it more interesting to the reader. Here is an example:

Instead of It has a long, metal brake on the right handle bar to help me to stop safely. You could start with where the brake is first. On the right handle bar there is a long, metal brake to help me stop safely.

Remember to send me your finished description!

Computing

This week we are going to be learning about coding. Computers need code to complete activities. They don’t use language to speak like we do. Click on the link below to watch the clip about code and play the game to find the different things that use code.

P.E

Today we are going to try these Go Noodle routines for our P.E session. You can choose to do as many as you wish. You may be able to do all of them because they are not very long! Have fun and remember to try your best.
