# Monday

Good morning.

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Are you ready to start another week of learning?

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!

I have attached a story about a fish who lives at the bottom of the ocean but longs to see the sun so sets off on an adventure. Be careful when reading there are many funny sounding fish names!

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 partitioning numbers, this means we are going to break numbers apart in to tens and ones. First look at the power point and watch how we break the numbers apart. Next look at the worksheet attached, I want you to break the numbers apart in to tens and ones like I have done in the example.

We are going to start with carefully counting to 10. First watch this song to recap the numbers.

## "Counting to 10" - 10 Little Numbers Song, Learn to Count 1 to 10

Now use your careful counting skills (this means you touch each picture as you count) to count the pictures.

Year 2:  As we just have 2 weeks left until the end of the year we will be recapping our Maths learning. Instead of spending a week on a Maths area we might spend just a day or a few days!

Today we will be recapping our place value knowledge.

When we look at a 2 digit number it is made up of a tens and ones digit. The first digit shows you how many tens there are and the second digit shows you how many ones there are. Look at this example for the number 23:

2 tens is ‘twenty’ and 3 ones is ‘three’, so 23 is ‘twenty-three’.

For your main learning today you are going to practise matching numbers to the numbers written in words and writing numbers both using digits and in words.
Remember when you write numbers in words that numbers greater than 20 have a special symbol to join the tens and ones digits. Twenty-three, it joins them as one number. If you wrote twenty three, it looks like two separate numbers.
I've also included a help sheet to help you spell the different numbers correctly.

Literacy

Year 1 Grammar – naming words (nouns)

Naming words tell us the names of things.

We can add -er to the end of many doing words (verbs) to make new words.

The words we make by doing this are nouns and the -er bit of the word means “someone or something that does something

doing words(verb)                               naming words (noun)

paint                                                            painter

If you paint you are a painter

clean                                                          cleaner

If you clean you are a cleaner.

Look at the power point to find out more about adding the suffix -er.

Click on the worksheet to practise your learning.

Year 2 Grammar – homophones

Today we are going to be looking at some confusing words. We are looking at words that sound the same but are different in spelling and what they mean.

Like see (I can see an apple on the tree.) and sea (The ship went sailing out to sea.)

Like hare ( A hare is an animal like a rabbit.) and hair (I have to comb my hair every morning.)

These words sound the same but are spelt differently and have different meanings.

Listen to the song. How many homophones can you spot?

## "Homophone Monkey Song" by Waterford.org

Today we are going to look at the homophones to, too and two.

Two is a number.   In two days it will be my birthday.

Too can mean as well and it can mean very.  You can come too.    These books are too heavy!

We use to like this.   I am going to the park.     to eat.

Now click on the worksheet to practise using the correct to, too, two.

Science

We have looked at how there are different animal groups. There is one more group to look at and that group of animals is the minibeasts.

First, I would like you to watch the short film to find out which animals belong to this group. When you have watched the film try the quiz.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6882hv/articles/z9fkwmn

Now see if you can name and sort the minibeasts into groups: those that have legs and those that have no legs.

When you have done that, look at the worksheet and see if you can match the minibeasts to where you might find them.

I would like you to go on a minibeast hunt in and around your garden or if you are going on a walk with a grown up perhaps you can spot minibeasts then.
