# Friday

## Good morning Troughton Class!

It is Friday again! Only one more week until half-term! Time seems to be flying by!

Have you got anything planned for the weekend? Are you going for a walk? Perhaps, making a junk model or baking something? Let me know what you get up to! Work hard today and have a lovely weekend!

Phonics

Miss Sharpe's group - I would like to join in with the live phonics lesson streaming on youtube at 9:30am (remember if you miss it - don't worry! It will be on the youtube channel for 24hrs)
You are learning set 3 sounds so make sure this is the one that you watch. You should also watch and join in with the spelling video to match the sound which you are learning today. You will need some paper and a pencil to write the words on.
It's really important to keep practising your sounds.

Today you are going to continue practising your reading skills using the text, 'Harbours' for the final time. Today you are going to find and copy important words and phrases and determine whether a sentence is true or false.

Use your ninja eyes to skim and scan through the sentences to locate the correct part to copy.

When you answer the true or false questions, look back over the text and read the sentences carefully to work out if the statement is true or false.

## Maths: Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

Did you manage to interpret pictograms yesterday? Today you are going to put this new skill into practise and try to interpret some more pictograms!

Once again, here is yesterday’s learning video in case you want a recap!

Remember when you are answering your questions to check the key and to count really carefully to work out what number is being represented by each amount. You can always write down the amount in numbers to help you next to the pictures.

For some of your learning you have to tick statements that are correct. You will need to read carefully to see what the statement is saying to determine whether it is true or not, this is where having the amounts written in numerals may help you.

When you get onto the challenge you need to explain how you know whether it is correct or not. Think about what helps you to know the amount of what is being represented.

I am looking forward to seeing how you get on!

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to practise our learning about tens and ones. Yesterday we learnt that a 2-digit number is made up of groups of tens and some more which we call ones.

Look at the number 37. 37 has got some tens and some ones.

It has 3 tens which makes 30 and 7 ones. I have made 37.

I have put the link up to yesterday’s learning video in case you need to remind yourself about tens and ones.

Now you have some questions to answer. Make sure you read the questions carefully.

## Writing: Spelling

Today we are going to look at spelling some common exception words. These are words you need to be able to read and spell by the end of the year.

We are going to first learn how to spell the days of the week. They are proper nouns – special naming words so they need to start with a capital letter.

Let’s look closer at these words. There are some tricky parts in the words (which I have highlighted) so these are the parts you need to learn so they do not catch you out!

Monday

Tuesday – ue (come to the rescue) is another way of making an oo (poo at the zoo) sound.

Wednesday – these are tricky because you can’t hear the sound when you say

Thursday – remember to use ur – nurse with a purse

Friday

Saturday – remember to use ur – nurse with a purse

Sunday

Now watch the video to help you learn how to spell these words.

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups – I would like you to look at the words on the worksheet. They are all days of the week but the letters have been all scrambled up for each word. I would like you to unscramble them. When you have done that underline or highlight the tricky part of each word.

There is a spelling quiz to complete afterwards where you have to choose the correct spelling of each word.

Good luck! Let me know how you get on.

There are two activities I have chosen to help you spell the days of the week on Education City in My Classwork section. If you need your log in details email me and I will send you your logins.

Blue group: Today we are going to learn to spell words with special friends ng and th.

First watch the video and see if you can read words with special friends ng.

Now I would like you to look at your worksheet. You are going to spell words with ng and th in.

You will need to use fred fingers to help you spell the words. Pinch the sound on each finger then write it down.

## P.E

Time to get yourself active again! Are you able to keep going until the timer runs out?

Here's the link to the playlist, you can do today's workout or a different one! Try to keep going!
