# Thursday

Good morning. Hope you are all raring to go this Thursday morning!

Thank you for some of the lovely videos of you performing your poem. They were brilliant!

Remember you can email me and send me your learning on the class email or just to say hello!

It is so important you carry on with your reading. There is a document that tells you how to keep reading at home on our webpage. Also, a reminder that there are RWI lessons daily which are very good and will help you practise your speed sounds and fred talking. You are all fantastic readers!

Have you been listening to Story time with Nick?

Maths

Year 1:  For our warm up this morning help the camel to find his toy by weighing the food and giving him the heaviest bowl.

Today you are going to describe if something is on the left or right. This will help you when giving directions to someone.

Put your learning to the test by saying which way the animal is facing, left or right?

Remember to practise your times tables with Times Tables Rock Stars.

Blue group: Your learning today is about knowing 1 more and 1 less. You need to count the dinosaurs carefully. Write this number by the dinosaurs, now write the number that comes before this number in the circle and the number that comes after in the other circle. To check your answer the numbers should go in order like 3, 4, 5.

Year 2:  Today you will be finding fractions of amounts. First of all, take a look at the Power Point to refresh your memory of how to find a fraction of an amount. (There is a PDF version incase you cannot open the power point.)

You need to count the total amount, then say what 1/2, 1/4 or 3/4 of the amount is. Make sure you check what the question is asking. You can still use coins, pasta, toys… anything you have at home to help you share the amount into halves or quarters to help you find the answer.

Literacy

Today we are going to look at a different poem called On Monday.

I would like you to read and perform the poem aloud to a grown up. You might want to send me a video of you performing this poem too!

Did you notice the names begin with the same letter e.g. Jenny Jar, Simon Stoat?

When you have read the poem, I would like you to find pairs of rhyming words in the poem and write them down.

Here is a clue: There are 7 pairs of rhyming words.

Can you see a pattern to the pairs of words that rhyme?

R.E

In our last R.E lesson we learnt about leaders. In the Isamic religion, there is a special leader called Prophet Muhammad. He is such a special leader that he has nearly 2 billion followers who respect him. More than 1400 years ago he taught all Muslim people how to follow God. He is so special that when Muslims talk about him, when they say his name they say ‘Peace be upon him’. And when they write his name they put the letters ‘PBUH’ after his name.

Watch this video which has two stories about the Prophet Muhammad. Whilst you are watching try and think about how he shows good leadership!

Now you have watched the video clip, think about and answer these two questions. You can write your answers down or tell a grown up what you think.

How is Prophet Muhammad a good leader?

What does he teach the people who follow him?

PSHE

Today we are going to learn about why sleep is important and different ways to rest and relax.

Watch this video about Rodd's bad day to learn about how sleep can affect your memory. If you have these items you can join in the games, for the first game:scissors, a pencil sharpener, rubber, apple and a lunchbox. For the second - scissors, a watch, a water bottle, pencil and sock.

After you have watched this video click the worksheet below. It has some things to think about and 2 questions to answer.

You will also see some yoga cards that help with relaxation. Try one of these before bed if you like! Let me know if they help you relax and get to sleep more easily.
