I hope you have all had a lovely weekend and you have managed to enjoy the lovely sunshine.

Remember to send me your work so I can see how you are getting on with your learning.

Let's start this week with a warm up.

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 story. It is called Mountain Mona. We are going to read a bit each day.

You can read the text on the video or you can print it out first. This text will be needed for the whole week so hold onto it if you print it out.

For your main learning you are going to match information. Skim through the text to find the key word you need to match, then read the sentence before checking the options for matching the word. You should then be able to choose the best match.

Maths

Year 1 and Blue group:

This week we are going to be learning about measuring length and height.

We are going to start by comparing length. When we compare length, we need to use language like long, longer, longest

short, shorter, shortest and the same.

First watch the short film that introduces how we compare length. Listen carefully because there are some activities you will be asked to do. I have made a sheet for you to record what you have found for each activity or you can record what you have found on your own piece of paper.

Bow you have compared length, let’s compare height. When we compare height, we need to use language like tall, taller, tallest, short, shorter, shortest and the same.

Again, watch the short film that tells us about comparing height. After complete the activities.

Year 2

Today in your maths learning you are going to be sorting 2-D shapes.

Look at these pictures of 2-D shapes.
Can you remember their names?

Can you say anything else about these shapes?
How many sides does each one have?
How many vertices does each one have?
What is the same between the yellow and blue shape?

When we sort 2-D shapes like we will be learning how to do today we have to find out about the shape’s properties and what shape it is.
Sometimes we could be asked to identify (find) all of the triangles or circles. So we need to know the properties of these shapes so that we can do this.

You might be asked to group shapes by a certain about of vertices or sides which is why it is important to know how to count these accurately.

A little hint: odd numbers cannot be shared between 2 and always end in 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 & even numbers can be shared between 2 and always end in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8.

Grammar

Year 1 and Blue group

For your grammar learning today you are going to learn some more about special naming words. You might remember learning about these word types a few weeks ago. The special naming words we are learning about today are months of the year which are proper nouns. Proper nouns have capital letters at the start of the word.

Special naming words have capital letters.

Names are special naming words.

Mrs Hill

Days of the week are special naming words.

Monday

Months of the year are also special naming words.

January

I have found a video for you to watch that teaches you what proper nouns are and lets you practise finding proper nouns in a sentence. Watch this video below:

Here is another video to remind you of the 12 months of the year to help you with your learning today:

Year 2

Today you are going to learn about homophones, we sometimes call these confusing words as they are tricky to remember how to spell. Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings.

The words you are going to be learning about today are: two, too and to.

Look at the example below to see how and when these different spelling of the words which sound the same should be used.

Here is a video that will show you how to use these words and give you a chance to practise selecting the correct word to fill the gap.

When you complete your learning check back to the example above to remind yourself of what each spelling means so you can make sure you choose the correct word.

Science

We have been looking at materials and their properties.

Today we are going to look at the materials we use and how that links to their properties.

Objects are made from materials that suit what the object will be used for.

Click on the picture on the BBC bitesize page to find out what the different objects are made from and why.

## Materials and their uses.mp4

I would like you to choose the best material for each object.

Then I would like you to identify the material an object is made of and say why the material is best for the job.

Story time

Today I have chosen a story from China called The Magic Paintbrush. You can join in with the story as well!

I hope you enjoy it.
