## Good morning Troughton class!

It is Friday! Your last day of home learning before the weekend. I hope you are ready to work hard!

You have really impressed me with your super learning this week.

Don't forget to send me your learning to the class email address.

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 we are going to be finishing 'The Woman who Fooled the Fairies'. I hope you have enjoyed reading this story. I wonder if the fairies will finally be able to taste the cake?

Watch the video below to join in with your learning, try to pause the video when asked and join in with the questions that you are being asked.

For your learning activity today you are going to practise the skill of sequencing. You will be placing different parts of the story and words in order. Check back in the text carefully!

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

For your learning today you are going to use your knowledge of lines of symmetry from yesterday to draw the whole of a shape. Remember when a shape has a line of symmetry it means that both halves of the shape are the same.

Watch the video below to teach you more about how you can draw the other half of a shape.

When you are completing your learning you can use the squares to help you. If the top line is 2 squares across, then you need to draw 2squares across on the other half. If it is 4 squares down, then you’d draw a line 4 squares down too.

Diagonal lines are trickier to draw and you will have to look closely at how many squares across and down the diagonal line passes through to help you draw it carefully.

Good luck with your learning today!

## Maths: Blue group

This week we have been learning about counting in 2s and 5s.

Here are some counting songs in 2s and 5s to practise first.

Count in 2s

Count in 5s

Look at this number track. Are we counting in 2s or 5s?

Today you are going to practise counting in 2s and 5s and find the missing numbers.

You are also need to count how many altogether by counting in 2s or 5s.

Remember to send me a photograph of your learning.

## Writing: Spelling

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

For our spelling learning this week I would like you to look carefully at these words. Say them out loud to a grown up. What do all these words have in common?

word     worst     bird     dirt     early     learn

These words all have an ur sound in them.

Look again at the words to check this.

word     worst     bird     dirt     early     learn

‘or’ can make the sound ‘ur’ in a few words but usually makes the sound ‘or’ (shut the door).

‘ir’ can make the sound ‘ur’.

‘ear’ can make the sound ‘ur’ in a few words but can also makes the sound ‘ear’ (gear with your ear).

You are going to sort the words into the different ways of spelling this sound like we do in class. When you have finished choose 1 word from each group and write a sentence using the word.

Now try the scrabble challenge.

Blue group

Today we are going to look at our spelling families.

Can you say the sound they make?

ai (snail in the rain)     ea (cup of tea)     ie (terrible tie)
oa (goat in a boat)     ue (come to the rescue)

They all make a long vowel sound.

I have included a video for the long vowel sound ie and ue as these will be new sounds for many of you.

You are going to sort the words into the different ways of spelling this sound like we do in class. When you have finished choose 1 word from each group and write a sentence using the word.

Then try the challenge. I have attached the answers for your grown ups to check you were correct.

## Art

This week we have been reading the book Wolves by Emily Gravett.

Many of her books are picture books that she has illustrated.

She has won the Kate Greenaway Medal which recognises "distinguished illustration in a book for children".

Wolves was the first book she made. Here is an interesting video where she tells us how she came to make the book.

She has made a video to show people how to draw some of the characters in her books.

Today we are going to see if we can draw wolf from our story.

You will need to listen and watch carefully to the video below.

Don’t forget to send me a photograph when you have finished. I can’t wait to see them all.
