Good morning.

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and you are ready to start a new week.

Remember you can write to me and send me your learning on the class email or just to say hello!

Today I have a book that I would like you to read. Remember if you come across any words you find a bit tricky, use your speed sounds to fred talk the words.

It is about the famous characters of Winnie and Wilbur. It is all about having to stay at home at the moment, just like you are having to do!

I really enjoyed it. Let me know if you enjoyed it too.

Maths

Year 1: Today we are going to be counting amounts using 10s and 1s.

We are revising our learning on this. Watch the video first to see how we partition numbers into tens and ones.

Now click on the document to try the activity.

Here is a game to put your learning to the test:

Year 2: This week we are moving on to do some learning about measures. Take a look at the power point which will give you an idea on the areas of Maths we will be looking at in the coming weeks.

We will spend this week comparing and ordering different measures.

Today we will practise just comparing numbers, ready to move on to comparing measures tomorrow.
You must look at the tens digit to see how many tens there are in each of the numbers. If both numbers have the same tens digit then look at the ones digit to see if you can find out which number is the greatest. Then you will be able to work out which way the greater than or less than sign needs to go.

Take a look at the crocodiles below, this helps us to know which sign is to show greater than or less than. The ‘crocodile’ always eats the largest number.

Example:

25 > 13 (This is showing 25 is greater than 13)

56 < 72 (This is showing 56 is less than 72)

10 + 5 = 15 (You have to do the addition part first, then when you find out 10 + 5 is 15 you can see each side is the worth the same amount. So this is showing that 10 + 5 is equal to 15)

Literacy

Year 1 Grammar – doing words (verbs)

This week we are going to be looking at doing words. These words are called verbs.

A verb tells us what people and animals and things are doing.

I help at home with the washing up.

help                          peck                             talk

A verb tells us what people and animals and things did in the past.

help + ed = helped         peck + ed = pecked     talk + ed = talked

I helped at home with the washing up.

Now see if you can add the verbs to the sentences and then use the verbs and write your own sentences.

Year 2 Grammar – comparative adjectives

We already know that an adjective is a describing word. They tell us more about people, animals, places and things.

an enormous elephant – enormous is the adjective

an old car – old is the adjective.

Adjectives can describe the difference between two things.

old man    older man                               small bike    smaller bike

A comparative adjective has the suffix “er

This video tells you about comparative adjectives and the spelling rules for them.

Now try the worksheet. Write the comparative adjective to finish each sentence.

When you have done that see if you can sort the words into adjectives and comparative adjectives.

For example; The hill is ______ than that one.

The hill is higher than that one.

Science

Materials - Famous Inventors

Over the weeks we have spent time looking at objects and seeing what materials they are made of. We have looked at the properties of those materials and we have seen how these properties help us choose the best material for a job.

Today we are going to look at some famous inventors of new materials. They lived a long time ago but our lives today would be very different without them.

Their names are John Dunlop, John McAdam and Charles Mackintosh.

I would like you to watch the three short videos and then complete the sheet.

I wonder which invention you think is the most important?
