Here is your last day of online learning!
I can’t believe that this is your last day in Donaldson class! I have been so proud of all of you and am so pleased to have been your teacher. You are all super stars!
I hope you all have a lovely, safe summer and I will see you all in September.
How are you getting on with your reading? Which was your favourite book this week? I would love to know so send me an email.
Year 1: This morning we have a maths warm up to get our brains working, try to complete this independently.
This is your last maths lesson in Year 1, so I thought we’d go outside for our lesson today. I want you to go for a walk with a grown up and collect some of your own data. You don’t have to collect the same as me, I have attached 2 graphs, one is blank and one has my choices. Click on the power point to see the task explained for today. Have fun!
Year 2: For your final day of summer Maths challenges you will be using your counting knowledge!
In the first challenge you should count forwards and backwards in multiples of 5 to help you fill in the blanks in the sequences.
Here’s a reminder of how to count forwards in multiples of 5:
0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60
Here’s a reminder of how to count backwards in multiples of 5:
60, 55, 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 5, 10
Your second challenge needs you to look at the tens and ones in the picture and use super counting to find out how much the tens and ones make. You could count in multiples of ten first, then count the ones. So if there were 4 tens sticks and 2 ones cubes you would count: 10, 20, 30, 40 then carry on in 1s… 41, 42.
If you find that a bit tricky count your tens separately and then your ones and join them together. So if you had 4 tens and 2 ones you would have counted the 4 tens: 10, 20, 30, 40. Then you would count the ones: 1, 2. Finally you would solve 40 + 2 to give you your answer of 42.
Today is our last Literacy lesson of the year! While you have been learning from home we have looked at many different books. Today I am going to ask you to write and tell me what has been your favourite book and why.
I have listed the books below and put the links on so you can watch them again if you need to.
Remember to include:
I look forward to seeing which has been your favourite.

For our last computing session for this year, I want you to think about the technology that is around you. Technology is a machine or device that we can use. There is technology all around us, our phones, our TVs, our cars. Can you think of any others? Do all these pieces of technology look the same? Does every phone, TV or car look the same? Why do you think this is?
Technology is forever changing and getting better. Watch the power point attached to learn about how technology has changed over the past years. Now click on the worksheet to sort technology from the past and technology from the present (what we have now).
For PE today I thought we would do a Sports day from home! You have all been working so hard and it is a shame we didn’t get to do our sports day on our school field. So instead I thought we could have a little fun creating our own sports days from home. Try and take part in the activities suggested in your garden, living room, bedroom or local park with a grown up. The main aim is to have fun with your family. I look forward to seeing your pictures!
