Well I can't believe it is Friday already!
Enjoy your learning today and I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Year 1 Phonics
Please watch today’s videos on RWI YouTube channel. They will show at 9.30am and will be available for 24 hours.
If you are in Miss Barnett’s group and Mrs Beech’s group you will need to watch the set 2 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos. Today the sound is igh.
If you are in Miss Meakin’s group you will need to watch the set 3 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos. Today the sound is a-e. When you have completed this lesson, try the reading longer words lesson. This lesson looks at ay, a-e, ai sounds.
I have attached the link below. Just scroll down to find the videos you need.
Year 2 Reading
Today you will be reading another non-fiction text. Non-fiction means it is information.
You will be finding out about Antarctica. This is a vey cold place. In fact it is the coldest place on earth! Read the information then use your Ninja eyes and skim and scan to find the answers to the questions.
Remember you need to answer questions 2,3 , 5 and 6 in complete sentences.
Year 1: First I would like you to complete the maths warm up on the worksheets below for recognising 3D shapes. To help you, watch the video all about 3D shapes.
Today we are going to revise how we order numbers from the smallest number to the greatest number. Watch the video to find out more.
Now I would like you to order the numbers on your activity sheet from smallest to greatest.
I have given you a 100 square to help you. You could always find the numbers on the 100 square first before you put them in order. When you have written the number down cross it out so you don’t use it again.
When you have finished, put your learning to the test by completing this ordering activity. Click on the ordering caterpillar and click on the which orange game you want to play.
Can you order numbers from greatest to smallest? Try one of the green games.
Year 2: Today we are moving on to add equal groups. This skill helps us to find the total.
First, we look at the equal groups and find out how many are in each group, then we add the amount from each group.
There are 4 equal groups of 2
There are four 2s
The addition number sentence would be:
2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 8
Watch the video below to help you learn how to add equal groups:
On your worksheet you will see a stem sentence to complete like the above example. Look at the picture carefully to see how many groups there are and how many are in each group, then fill in the missing parts.
Next you will see a grid.
To complete the grid you will need to look at the pictures to see how many groups there are and how many are in each group. Next you will draw a picture to show the groups (a circle with dots inside will show this well), then you need to say the sentence – you can tell a grown up or write ‘___ groups of ___’ and lastly you will write the addition number sentence like the example above.
For your challenge use some items from home or cut out the ‘counters’ and share them into equal groups and write the number sentences to go with them. There will be more than one way for both challenges! How many different ways can you find?
Example: 10 counters
2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 10
5 + 5 = 10
Blue group: Today we are going to learn to look at numbers 11 to 20.
Work through the video to find out about these numbers. Listen carefully then you will be able to complete your activity.
Year 1 and 2
Today I would like you to retell the story of The Princess and the Pea in your own words. Use the pictures you ordered from yesterday to help you.
Remember you can use some fairy tale words like:
Once upon a time
A long time ago there lived
They lived happily ever after
When you write your story make sure to:
Start each sentence with a capital letter
Put a full stop at the end of a sentence
Use a conjunction to write longer sentences like and, because, but, when, so
Use some adjectives to describe the prince and the princess. I can’t wait to read your stories.
You could start with something like this:
Once upon time, there lived a handsome prince who was trying to find a beautiful princess to marry. He had searched all over the kingdom but could not find a real princess to marry. Many dishonest people tried to trick the prince into marrying them!
******There is some lined paper to print below if you have no lined paper at home.******
Blue group: Today you are going to finish writing the story of the princess and the Pea.
You are going to write who, what doing, what sentences.
Use the pictures to help you write sentences about what is happening in each picture. Don’t forget to put the little words in your sentence so it makes sense.
Have you ever drawn a picture on the computer?
In class, we have been looking at a drawing programme and exploring the different tools you can use. The programme is called Paint. You could also use Sketchpad if you want to.
Today you are going to create a portrait using this programme.
What is a portrait? It is a picture of a face.
Look in the mirror at your features. What colour are your eyes? What colour is your hair? Is it long or short? Look at the shape of your face, nose and mouth.
You will need to use the ‘Shape’ tool to draw an oval (called an ellipse on Sketchpad).
The ‘Fur’ brush could be used for hair.
The ‘Pencil’ tool could be used to draw big circles for eyes.
If you cannot access a computer to draw a portrait, try using different shapes to make a picture of your face. You could use an oval shape for your face and circles for eyes. It is up to you.
When you have finished, perhaps you could send me a photograph of your work and tell me what tools you used to draw it on the paint programme or what tools you used to draw it on paper.
You could do both activities and then complete the activity I have attached.
