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!
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
Saturday – remember to use ur – nurse with a purse
Now watch this video to help you learn how to spell these words.
I would like you to cut out the days of the week and stick them in the correct order. When you have done that, underline or highlight the tricky part of each word. You can then practise spelling the days of the week on the next activity.
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.

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.
Today we will be finding out what 1 more and one less than a number is in numbers up to 50. For your warm-up, I would like you to fill in the missing numbers in the number grid.
When we look at a number line or grid, the numbers get bigger by 1 each time when we go backwards.
21, 22, 23, 24, 25
Have a look at these numbers. What is 1 more than 23? The answer is 24
When we are on a question that says what is 1 less than a number, we go backwards instead of forwards so, What is 1 less than 23? The answer is 22.
Have a go at the questions on your worksheet.
Now try this game.
Today we will continue with our learning of the numbers to 10. Here is the counting to 10 song; Can you sing along?
For our warm-up I would like you to count and write the number of the amount of objects. Remember careful counting!
For your activity I would like you to colour in the picture. Each number has a different colour so make sure they match.
In your last computing lesson, you planned out your story. You thought about the character’s names, what they might be saying and whether it would still make sense if your pictures were in a different order.
Today, you will focus on taking clear photos. Do you how to take a clear photo?
I want you to take photos of the characters down to their level and from further away so you can see the setting.
Can you look at the screen and check what is in frame?
Can you press the capture button carefully to make sure nothing changes?
What would happen if you move when capturing photo? Would it be clear or blurry?
You should always keep the camera still when taking a photo.
Make sure that the surrounding areas are bright enough so you can see them.
Take your photos and stick them on the planning sheet like you did last computing lesson.
It’s important that we exercise and keep physically active and healthy. Here’s the latest from Joe Wicks; can you keep up?
