# Monday

Good morning.

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Are you ready for our last week of learning before we break up for the summer?

I would love to hear from you all before we break up for the summer so don’t forget to send me pictures of your learning and tell me what you have been up to.

For the last week can you find a favourite Julia Donaldson book to read to a grown up. Tell me which one you have chosen and why it is your favourite.

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 comparing numbers. We are going to read 2-digit numbers and find the largest or the smallest number. Then we are going to use equal to (=), more than (>) and less than (<) to compare numbers. Do you remember when we did this a few weeks ago?

After you have finished your work, try this game to see if you can order these numbers:

Blue group:

Your learning today is about 2D shapes. Today we are going to recognise these shapes and match them to the names. At home with your grown-up talk about the 2D shapes you know, do you know how many sides and corners they have? Can you spot them on the worksheet and colour them in the correct colours?

Year 2: This week we will continue recapping some of our learning. For today and tomorrow’s learning we will recap our fraction learning.

A fraction is a part of a whole, for example ½

The numerator (top number) tells you how many parts of the whole you have or need to show.
The denominator (bottom number) tells you how many parts make up the whole.

Look at the fraction diagrams, how much are they showing?
How many parts are there altogether? How many are shaded blue?
If there are 4 parts and 2 are shaded blue the fraction would be 2/4 as 2 parts out of 4 are shaded.

Join the fraction diagrams to the written fraction amounts.

Literacy

Year 1 Grammar

Today we are going to revise some of the grammar we have been learning this year.

We have learnt so much!

• naming words (nouns) and special naming words that all need a capital letter
• different sentences
• statements which start with a capital letter and end with a full stop. This is a dog.
• questions which start with a capital letter and ends with a question mark (?)
• sentences which show how people are feeling start with a capital letter and end with an exclamation mark.
• Doing words (verbs)
• Plurals (more than one)
• Prefixes (-ed -ing) and suffixes (un)

Now try the worksheet to see how you do.

Year 2 Grammar – conjunctions

Conjunctions are words we use to join sentences.

The conjunction and, but and or are used to join sentences.

I like the chocolate cake and I ate a big slice.

I like the chocolate but I was too full to eat any more.

I sometimes like chocolate cake or I sometimes like fruit.

Two other conjunctions are so and because.

Put the chairs on the table so I can sweep the floor.

I don’t eat cabbage because I don’t like it.

Watch the videos to find out about conjunctions.

Science

We have looked at how there are different animal groups. Can you remember the 6 animal groups?

Today we are going to group the animals in a different way.

Different animals eat different types of foods. We can group animals by the different types of food they eat. Some animals are carnivores, some are herbivores and some are omnivores.

Carnivores eat meat.

Herbivores eat plants.

Omnivores eat meat and plants.

Watch the video to find out what more about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.

Now I would like you to click on the worksheet to show me what you have learnt.
