# Monday

Good morning.

I hope you have had a lovely weekend even though the weather hasn't been very nice. I have enjoyed looking at your emails. Keep sending them in to donaldson@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

Today I am attaching a non-fiction text about the United Kingdom, then a page of matching questions.

Can you match the information correctly?

Maths:

Year 1: This morning we have a maths warm up to get our brains working, try to complete this independently.

Today we are going to be counting in 10s. Watch this and join in as we remember how to count in 10s.

Next I want you to complete your learning activity below.
Blue group: Your learning today is counting carefully. We are going to be counting the objects, you can cross them out as you count them if you’d like. Remember to write the numbers correctly. To start off let’s begin by counting to 20 with this fun song.

Year 2: We are continuing our learning on measurement this week.

This week we will be looking more closely at time!
Today we are going to compare and sequence intervals of time!

To start our learning today have a go at the ordering task below:

Did you order the times correctly?
second, minute, hour, day, week, month & year

There are 60 seconds in 1 minute.
There are 60 minutes in 1 hour.
There are 24 hours in 1 day.
There are 7 days in 1 week.
There are usually 30 or 31 days in a month except in February where there are normally 28 days (apart from leap years like this year where there were 29 days!)
There are 365 days in a year, (or 366 when in a leap year like this year).
There are 12 months in 1 year.

For your first activity you need to match the time sentences to the time periods.
After that you will be comparing time periods to say which amount of time is the shortest or longest.

Year 1 Grammar – Conjunctions (joining words)

We use conjunctions (joining words) to join sentences.

A useful joining word is and.

Mum made a cake. She put it in the oven.

You can make one sentence by using and.

You need one capital letter and one full stop.

Mum made a cake and she put it in the oven.

Look at the power point to find out more about using and to join words and sentences together.

Year 2 Grammar – Contractions

If something contracts it gets smaller.

Contractions are words that are smaller.

• A letter or letters are missed out.
• An apostrophe goes in place of the missing letter or letters.

I am sorry     I’m sorry

I have lost a book.     I’ve lost a book.

Click on the document to practise your learning on contractions.

When you have finished there is a challenge! Rewrite the sentences using contractions.

Science

Last week you carried out a science experiment to see which materials were waterproof.

Today I would like you to find out more about different materials. You will need a grown up to help you.

My question today is: Which materials are absorbent?

See if you can get a dry sponge. What happens when you put the sponge in water?

Now watch this video to find out about the word absorb.

Now I would like you test some different materials to find out which will absorb water and which will not.

Here is a list of objects you could test. cotton wool, fabric, foil, plastic toy, cardboard, kitchen towel, fork, pencil, paper

You can choose which ones to test. You might even test some other things that are not on the list. Remember to always ask a grown up first!

Put one object in a bowl of water and see if it absorbs water. Sort the objects into two piles. Those that are absorbent (soak up water) Those that are non-absorbent (do not soak up water)

After, record what you have found out on the recording sheet.
