Reading

I have found some stories for you to read on the booktrust website. I like these books because you can read along with the person reading the story or switch the sound off and read the book yourself.

Try this one.

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 time. To start with let’s recall the days of the week with this song: 

The 7 Days of the Week Song ♫ 7 Days of the Week ♫ Kids Songs by The Learning Station

Today we are going to be ordering the events of the day. It is a school day we are ordering so if it has been a while since you were last in, try to remember and order the day. 

Blue group:

Today you are going to order the days of the week. Click on the days of the week video to remind yourselves of the days of the week then click on the worksheet and cut and stick the days of the week in order.

Year 2: This week we are going to be learning about different graphs and tables. Today we will be looking closely at tally charts.

Tally charts are used to collect data quickly and in an easy way.

Each tally group is worth 5 so you can then count in multiples of 5s.

You draw a line to represent 1 like this | when you want to make a group of 5 you draw 4 lines like this |||| then strike a line through on the 5th one ||||
I will show you some different numbers represented by tallys:

|||| |||| = 10 (for this you would count in 5s: 5, 10)

|||| ||| = 8 (for this you would count the group of 5 then continue in 1s: 5, 6, 7, 8)

|||| |||| ||| = 13 (for this you would count the groups in 5s then count the ones: 5, 10, 11, 12, 13)
Complete the first worksheet as a practise, then move onto your worksheet.

Literacy

Year 1: Grammar – Describing words (adjectives)

Describing words are called adjectives.

Adjectives can have an opposite. Opposites are pairs of words that have different meanings. Doing words (verbs can have opposites too) Watch the opposites song to help you with this. How many opposites do you know?

Opposites - Opposites Songs for Children - Kids Songs by The Learning Station

When we add un before a word it can make the opposite word.

un + describing word = opposite

un + lucky = unlucky

un + fold = unfold

Today we are going to practise using un to write some opposites.

Year 2 Grammar – Adverbs

An adverb tells us more about how something is done. Adverbs tell you more about the verb – how something is done.

Lots of adverbs are made by adding ly to the end of an adjective.

The boy is shouting.

The boy is shouting loudly.

Shouting is the verb (doing word) and loudly is the adverb; telling us how the boy is shouting.

Many adverbs are made like this:

Adjective + ly = adverb

      loud    + ly = loudly

      bright + ly = brightly

Today you are going to practise identifying and using adverbs.

Science

Last week we looked at different animal groups. Can you remember them?

There were mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds and fish.

Today we are going to look at some special mammals called marsupials. Many marsupials live in Australia and you have been looking at Australia in Geography.

First, I would like you to read the power point about Australian animals. It tells you about 8 different animals that you may find in Australia. I would like you to sort the animals into marsupials and not marsupials.

After you have done this, I would like you to watch the video explaining some more about marsupials. Then I would like you to write 3 facts you have found out about marsupials. Good Luck!
