## Phonics

Miss Sharpe's group - 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 and join in with the spelling video to match the sound which you are learning today. You will need some paper and a pencil to write the words on.
It's really important to keep practising your sounds.

This week you are going to read a new text. This is a non-fiction text about pets we keep at home. Do you have any pets?

This text will be needed for the whole week so hold onto it if you print it out.

First of all read the text through carefully. It is good to read it through again to familiarise yourself with where all the information is.

For your reading 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?

## Maths: Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

For today’s learning you are going to learn about odd and even numbers.
Here are 2 videos to get you warmed up and ready!
Odd numbers first:

Now even numbers:

Look at the image below to help you understand how to identify an odd or even number.

So when you look at a number, you have to see which number it ends in to determine whether it is odd or even.

Here are some examples:

24 – This number ends in 4 so it is even

37 – This number ends in 7 so it is odd.

82 – This number ends in 2 so it is even.

99 – This number ends in 9 so it is odd.

All even numbers can divide by 2. When you split an even number in half both groups will always be equal. This can help us to work out if a number is even.

When you complete your learning you will be showing whether or not numbers are even or odd. If the whole number can be shared in groups of 2 it is even. When completing question 2 it might be good to us colours like in question 1 so you can clearly see if there is an equal amount. J

Remember when we learnt about dividing by 2 we learnt we sometimes have to exchange a 10 for 10 ones. This may help you with some of your learning.

## Maths: Blue group

This week you are learning about 3D shapes. A 3D shape has three dimensions. Therefore, unlike a 2D shape, it’s not flat. 3D shapes are measured by length, width and depth.
Here are some examples of 3D shapes:

Can you see any around you?

Practise the 3D shape poem at the top of the worksheet and try adding your own actions.

For your main learning you will match the 3D shape to the correct shape name.

## Writing - Grammar: Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

Today we are going to continue our learning about adjectives. Adjectives are describing words. They tell us more about people, animals, places and things.

an enormous elephant        an old car

Adjectives can also describe the difference between two things.

old man – older man

small bike – smaller bike

Words like bigger and smaller are called comparative adjectives because they compare two things.

Watch the video. It compares different sea creatures. See if you can see which ones are bigger, smaller, faster, slower, longer.

Now complete the worksheet to practise your learning.

## Writing: Grammar - Blue group

Today we are going to look at doing words. Doing words are called verbs.

Watch this video to reminder yourself about doing words. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrqqtfr/articles/zpxhdxs

Am, is and are help to make doing words. Here are some examples.

I am looking.

I am washing.

He is walking.

She is walking.

You are drinking.

They are drinking.

we are playing.

Now have a go at the worksheet to practise your learning.

## Science

Can you remember when we looked at different animal groups? We sorted animals into birds, fish, mammals, amphibians and reptiles.

There are other ways to group animals. Today we are going to look at what animals eat.

Some animals are meat eaters. We call this group carnivores.

Some animals are plant eaters. We call this group herbivores.

Some animals eat meat and plants. We call this group omnivores.

Watch this clip to find out about these groups.

Blue group: Look at what the animals eat and sort them. Can you find one more animal of your own to put in each group?

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups: I would like you to look on the animal fact file and use the information to sort the animals on the Venn diagram. I have attached the answers for you to check to see if you were right when you have finished.
