# Monday

Good morning

It is the last week before you break up for a well deserved rest.

You are working so hard. Thank you for sending me your work. I have been so impressed. Keep it up.

Let us start with a warm up and shake off the weekend ready to start our learning.

Phonics

Please watch today’s videos on RWI YouTube channel. They will show at 9.30am and will be available for 24 hours.

If you are in Miss Barnett’s group and Mrs Beech’s group you will need to watch the set 2 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos.

If you are in Miss Meakin’s group you will need to watch the set 3 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos. When you have completed this lesson, try the reading longer words lesson.

I have attached the link below. Just scroll down to find the videos you need.

This week you are going to read a new text. This is a non-fiction text about The Great Fire of London. This was an event that happened a long time ago. Do you know anything about it? Read the text to find out about it.

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

Year 1

Today we are going to carry on our learning about numbers to 50. We are going to use part-whole models to show numbers to 50 by partitioning into tens and ones.

Year 2

Last week you learnt what a pictogram was and how to draw one if the picture represented 1 which you could tell from the key.

What I mean by this is when the key said: O = 1.

You then knew each O was worth one so if there was OOO you knew this was equal to 3.
Today in your maths learning you are going to be drawing pictograms but you will have to look closely at the key as today the pictures may be equal to more than 1.

The key might say:

O = 2 so if you were showing 8 you would draw: OOOO as 4 lots of 2 is 8.

Watch this video below to teach you more about how to draw a pictogram in this way.

Did you see how sometimes you have to halve the shape as if O = 2 and you only have 1 you would have to halve the circle as half of 2 is 1.

It’s a bit trickier today than last week, but you did such a great job that I am sure you will be able to get the hang of this too!

Today, we have 2 learning videos as the first one is doing it with you and the second one that you will watch now is showing you more about how to do it independently before you have a go on your own on your worksheet.

Here’s the link to the second video:

Remember to check the key as the pictures may be worth 2, 5 or 10.

If you need half of the amount you might need to split the shape in half.

I’m looking forward to seeing how you get on as I was really impressed last week!

Blue group

We are going to keep on thinking about numbers to 20 this week.

Today we are going to compare and order three numbers.

We still need to use the language of comparing we used last week like greater, less, compare, more and fewer.

We will also use the word compare. This is when we look at two or more things to see what is similar and what is different about them.

When we compare, we want to see which number is greater and which number is smaller. So, we will look at a number’s value. That is how much it is worth.

I would like you to watch the video and then complete the independent activity mentioned on the video. Don’t forget to try the quiz after the video to test your learning.

Grammar

Year 1

Today we are going to look at sentences.

A sentence usually starts with a capital letter.
A
sentence usually ends with a full stop.

These are telling sentences. They are statements.
I am going by train
.

Telling sentences can also be called commands.
Wait for me
!

Some sentences end with a question mark.
These are asking sentences. They are questions.
?

Some sentences show people are:

These sentences end with an exclamation mark.
They are
exclamations.
I have missed my train
!

Year 2

Today we are going to learn some more about verbs.  Can you remember what a verb is?

A verb is a ‘doing word’. Today we are going to look at past tense verbs, these tell us what people, animals and things did.
To make the past tense, we usually add
ed or d to the verb family name.

Look at these examples:
I comb
ed my hair.                           I washed my face.
I walk
ed to the door.                      I picked up my dog.

If the words we are changing to the past tense already end in an e, then we just add d to the end!
I bake
d a cake.                               I saved my pocket money.
I smile
d at my friend.                     I waved goodbye.

Another way to make past tense is like this:

Watch this video which will teach you about present and past tense verbs to help you understand how they change.

Now you have an activity to complete to show what you have learnt.

Blue group

Today we are going to practise using the alphabet.
First of all listen to the alphabet song below to learn the alphabet using letter names.

## Alphabet Song | BBC Super Movers

Watch it for a second time and this time try to join in.

Look at this alphabet mat:

Can you say all of the letter sounds? Start at ‘a’ and say the letter sounds.

For your learning today, you are going to fill in the missing letters from the alphabet and add the first letter of a word.

Science

This week in our Science learning we are moving on to learn about materials.

Do you know what a material is?

A material is what something is made from.

Here are some examples of some materials and their properties, you may remember these from your DT learning.

Today you are going to watch and join in with the Oak Academy Science lesson with Miss Harris. She is going to teach you what a scientist is, what materials are and some properties of materials.

For this lesson you will need some paper and something to write with.

Storytime

Let's end the day with a story.

Do you like eating vegetables? This is a story about a boy who hates vegetables.

It is called Doug Lugg, Boy Slug.
