Our learning today will be on special naming words. We’ve already looked at names and days. Can you remember what they begin with?
If you are thinking capital letters, then you are right; Well done!
Our focus today will be on the months of the year. There are 12 months of the year and they are:
January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November and December.Here is the months of the year song, which is an easy way to remember the months so please do sing along.
Today, your learning will be about the initial sounds of words. Make sure you say the words out clearly and listen carefully to the sound at the start. Which letter makes that sound? On your worksheet, circle the letter which makes the first sound.
Last week your learning was on counting in 2s and 5s. This week your learning is on length and height. Today your learning is on comparing lengths. What is a Length?
A length is a distant from one point to another point. It is how long something is.
Here are some of the words you will use to compare lengths:
Short, Shorter, Shortest
Long, Longer, Longest
When we compare the lengths of two objects, make sure the objects start at the same point.
We can put the key words above in sentences; We use shorter and longer to compare two things:
The snake is longer than the worm.
The worm is shorter than the snake.
When we are comparing more than two things, we use shortest and longest:
Comparing a snake, a worm and a robin:
The snake is the longest.
The worm is the shortest.
Watch this video for your learning then answer the questions on your worksheet.
Today you are counting and recognising your numbers to 5. I would like you to count the objects carefully because careful counting is very important. I would then like you to trace the numbers 1-5 and then have a go at writing them down. It is important that your numbers look like the numbers you have traced, which means they face the right way and they sit on the line.
Can you remember your learning from last week? You investigated materials and whether they were able to bend, squash, twist or stretch. You filled in a table with all the results.
Which materials did you investigate?
What did you find out?
Today you will be using your knowledge of materials and their properties to fill in a table.
Complete the table
In this example, the object is a window. You have to write down the material it is made from and say why is it a good material to make that object. Use the word bank to help you.
What material is it made from? Why is it a good material?
I would then like you to answer a reasoning question where you give an answer and then say why you think that.
