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. It is called, 'Mountain Mona'. It is a fiction text. Do you remember what fiction means? Well done if you remembered a fiction text is a made up story.
This week you have a video to watch which has the text in it. You need to watch the video and pause it at different points to join in with your learning. Click here to find the video!
I have also typed up the text which you can print out if you would like it in front of you to underline or highlight. Keep a hold of it if you print it out!

Your reading activity today is to match information. Skim and scan through the text to find the key words.

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

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.

Watch the video below to learn more about how to sort 2-D shapes!

You are now ready to complete your learning.

A little hint for Yellow & Green groups: 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.

## Maths: 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.

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

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.

## Writing: Grammar - 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:

Now you are ready to complete your worksheet!

## 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!

Watch the video below to learn more about materials and their uses!

## 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's story is a story from China called, 'The Magic Paintbrush'. I hope you enjoy the story, let me know what you think.
