It is time for a week of super learning!
Thank you to all the parents who sent pictures of your learning for me to look at. I was so impressed with the hard work you are doing at home! A huge well done to you all. You are SUPER STARS!
Here is a reminder of the class email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am looking forward to seeing more of your learning this week!
Miss Sharpe's group - Just like yesterday I would like to join in with the live phonics lesson streaming on youtube at 9:30am (remember if you miss it - don't worry! It will be on the youtube channel for 24hrs)
You are learning set 3 sounds so make sure this is the one that you watch. You should also watch the spelling video to match the sound which you are learning today.
It's really important to keep practising your sounds.
Here's the link:
For your reading learning today you are going to read a non-fiction text about Chinese New Year. This year the Chinese New Year will be celebrated on February the 12th. The date of the New Year changes every year, unlike our New Year which always starts on January 1st!
Use your Ninja eyes to read the text carefully.
For your main activity today you are going to practise skimming and scanning through the text to find the words on your worksheet. Do any of the words appear more than once?
For your maths learning today you will be learning how to use the multiplication symbol ( X )
This builds on our learning from last week. When we have 4 equal groups of 2 like the picture below, the number sentence using the X symbol would be 4 X 2 as there are 4 lots of 2.
Being able to use the X symbol helps us to multiply more quickly as we don’t have to count out lots of representations one by one or do lots of repeated addition.
Click the link to watch the video below to teach you some more about using the X symbol.
For your learning you need to use some of your learning from last week too!
You need to draw out the representation using large circles for the groups and smaller circles for the amounts inside each group. You will then need to write the addition sentence to go with the representation. Once you have done this you should be able to write the multiplication sentence. However many groups you have will be your first number in the number sentence. Then you will place the X symbol before writing the next number in your number sentence. This number is the amount which is in each group. You will work out the answer by counting the total, you can do this by counting the amount in each group, adding the amounts in the repeated additions or by counting in multiples.
For your maths learning this week you are going to learn to add by counting on.
When we add by counting on, we put the largest number in our head and count on.
So if the question was 13 + 4 we would put 13 in our heads and count on 4.
Watch the video in the link below to help you learn more about adding by counting on.
For your independent work you need to draw the circles on for your first question, then count on from 9 to find the answer.
For your second question, start at number 7 and make 4 jumps forwards to count on.
Then I’d like you to have a go at the true or false questions, start with the largest number, and then count on. Are they correct?
Next use the number line to count on carefully.
Today we are going to revise nouns. Can you remember what nouns are?
Yes, they are naming words. Naming words tell us the names of things.
Blue group: Today I would like you to look at the picture on the worksheet and see if you can spot all the objects and say the naming word. Put a noun to finish each sentence.
Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups
Today we are going to be looking at pronouns.
A pronoun can be used instead of a noun.
The girl is running. Girl is the noun.
She is running. She is the pronoun.
The boy is running. Boy is the noun.
He is running. She is the pronoun.
These are pronouns.
I you he she it we they
See if you can use pronouns in your activity today.
