I enjoy seeing all your learning and telling me all your news so don’t forget you can send me your learning on the class email or write just to say hello!

Today I have attached a non-fiction book about whales and the songs they sing.

I have also attached a fiction book about an adventure story some children end up having while playing hide-and-seek.

Which one are you going to read first?

Maths

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

This week we are going to be learning about fractions. Today we are going to be learning about half. Half is written like this: ½ . This means there are 2 equal parts. Watch this clip to see how we find ½ of a shape.

## Fractions Year 1 - Finding Half of Shapes

Now click on the worksheet to put this learning to the test.

Year 2: This week we are continuing our geometry learning. For the next 2 days we will continue looking at 2D and 3D shapes.

For you learning today you will be recognising and identifying 2D shapes on the surfaces of 3D shapes.

Here is a reminder of 2D shapes:

When you are finding 2D shapes on the surfaces of 3D shapes, you need to look at the faces. What shapes can you see?

Take a look at this example:

What 2D shape is the arrow pointing at?
A circle!

Work through your worksheets and see if you can identify 2D shapes on the surfaces of 3D shapes.

Literacy

Year 1 Grammar – Doing words (verbs)

We are going to revise what we know about past tense verbs.

Verbs are doing words. They tell us what people, animals and things do.

chew    play    jump

Verbs can tell us what people, animals and things did.

chewed    played    jumped

We add ed to the verb family name.

Watch the video to find out about verbs.

Now try the activity. You have to read the verbs (doing words) and sort them into past tense (things that have happened) and present tense (things that are happening now) You can either cut out the verbs and stick them under the correct heading or write the verbs under the correct heading.

Year 2 Grammar – superlative adjectives

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

Adjectives can describe the difference between two things.

an old car       an older car

Adjectives can describe the difference between three or more things.

an old car     an older car     the oldest car

Words like oldest are superlative adjectives.

Try the worksheet. Write the superlative adjective to finish each sentence.

When you have done that see if you can sort the words into adjectives, comparative adjectives (end in er) and superlative adjectives. (end in est)

For example; The hill is the ______ of them all.

The hill is the highest of them all.

Science

At the start of our topic “Fire and Ice” we looked at lots of animals. We found out that there were different groups of animals.

Today we are going to revise our knowledge on this.

I would like you to watch some short films about each of the different animal groups. Watch the films about mammals, amphibians, birds, fish and reptiles.

I have also attached a power point about the different animal groups for you to look at too.
