I hope you are all well and keeping safe.
Let’s start with a Zumba warm up. Enjoy!
This week I am going to be giving you some reading comprehension to do. Remember to use the sounds that you have learnt in RWI to sound out any words you are unsure of. When you have finished reading there are some questions to answer.
Today you are going to be reading about The Camping Trip. Have you ever been camping? Did you enjoy it? I’m not sure that one of the children in the story is looking forward to camping! I wonder if she will enjoy it?
Ms Ellson’s reading group
Today you are going to be reading about a boy who does not mind the rain but does not like the grey sky. He wants more colour! Read the story to see what happens and then answer the questions.
Year 1 and 2
On a Monday we always do our skills quiz. Last week we practised our skills together so this week it is your turn to see if you can complete the questions independently. If you need a grown up to read the questions or any words you are not sure of that is ok.
Let me know how you got on and if you needed any help to work out the answers. Good luck!
We are going to be carrying on looking at poetry. Last week we looked at the poem At the Seaside by Robert Louis Stevenson. Can you remember it? Perhaps you could perform the poem to your grown up. Don’t forget the actions!
Today we are going to be writing some seaside tongue twisters.
Look at this tongue twister:
She sells seashells on the sea shore
First say it slowly then see if you can say it three times quickly. It is very tricky to say!
Tongue twisters are very hard to say because the words in the sentence start with the same sound or sounds.
Look at the power point and see if you can say some of the tongue twisters.
When you have done that, you are going to try and write your own seaside tongue twisters. I have attached a word bank to help you but you might think of some of your own words too.
Send me your tongue twisters and I will see if I can say them quickly!
Take a look at these plants.
What do they all have?
What’s similar about them?
What’s different about them?
Our learning today is about identifying the structure of plants which means the things that they have.
Watch this video and then see if you can complete the quiz underneath.
Here is another video that tells you about the parts of a plant.
So how does water get from the roots to the leaves of a plant? Watch this experiment to see how.
Now you are ready to complete your learning.
Year 1: Label the parts of the plant then match the sentences to the correct plant part.
Year 2: label the parts of a plant and then write what the function of each part is.
