# Monday

Hi Donaldson Class. I hope you are all well and have managed to enjoy the sunshine a little bit this weekend.

Thank you once again for sending me pictures of all your learning. I have enjoyed looking at all of them.  Please keep sending them to me.

It is really important that you continue to practise your reading at home! I have put lots of information about different ways you can keep reading at home if you have read every book you have at home. You can always read it again... you know that 3 times is best! Remember to ask your grownup to ask you questions about your book.

* Who is the main character?
* What happens in this story?
* Were there any funny parts? What parts were funny?
* What was your favourite part and why?
* Was there a part you didn't like and why?

Don't forget the daily RML lesson too!

Maths

Year 1 -   For our maths warm up let’s practise number bonds to 20:

https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button   Press the number that you need to add to the one at the top to make 20.

Your learning for this week is going to be fractions. We are going to learn about a half (½) and a quarter (¼).

To start off we are going to learn about ½ and find ½ of a shape. I have attached a power point that goes over the learning then a worksheet to see if you can put your learning to the test. If you have any questions about the learning, just email me and I will do what I can to help.

Remember to practise your times tables with Times Tables Rock Stars.

Blue group: Let’s start off by counting to 20:

Your learning today is ordering events. I want you to look at the pictures, cut them out and place them in order. What do you do first, next and last?

If you cannot print the pictures you can draw them yourselves or tell a grown up what the order will be and why.

Remember to use your order words like first, next, then, after that and last.

Year 2 - First we are going to remind ourselves of our 2 times table. Get ready to join along with the movements! Don’t forget your pinky when you drink your cup of tea!

Don’t forget to shout the answers to Bridget’s questions towards the end!

Today you will be filling in a table to show the repeated addition or the multiplication calculation.

 Calculation Repeated addition 5 x 2 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 2 x 2 2 + 2

Challenge: draw the arrays that go with each calculation. Look at the example to help you.

 Calculation Repeated addition Array 5 x 2 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 OO OO OO OO OO 3 x 2 2 + 2 + 2 OO OO OO

Literacy

Grammar – alphabetical ordering

Today you are going to complete some work using your alphabetical knowledge.

Can you say the alphabet? Here is a new alphabet song to watch and join in with. Were you right?

## Alphabet Song - ABC Song UK

Can you write the alphabet in order? Try putting in the missing letters of this alphabet.

a  b  ___  d  e  f g  ___  i   j  k  ___  m  n  ___  ___ ___ r  s  t  ___  v  __   x  y  ___

Now can you write the alphabet using upper case letters? I will start you off.

A  B  C  D

Today you are going to use this to help you make a bike dictionary. A dictionary is a book that has words in alphabetical order and tells you what each word means.

Look at the pictures of things to do with bikes. First put these words into alphabetical order. You can either cut the pictures out and stick them in the right order or draw your own pictures of the bike objects in the correct order.

When you have put the words into alphabetical order see if you can write next to each picture what the word means. You can use the internet to help you or ask a grownup.

You can do it like this:

Snake – A snake is a long, narrow reptile that has scales but no legs.

Spider - A spider is a small animal with eight legs and a body made up of two parts.

Most spiders spin a web.

Science

Last week we learnt the difference between an object and the material it is made of e.g. the object is a chair and it is made of wood. The material is wood. There are lots of different materials: wood, metal, plastic, glass, stone and many more.

Today you are going to recognise these different materials in and around your house.
