# Thursday

Good morning.

I hope everyone is well and had a lovely day yesterday. It was a beautiful, hot day, so I hope you remembered your sun cream and sun hat when you went outside!

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

Have you started the book about the lazy giant? Are you enjoying it?

Remember it is split up into 5 short chapters, so you could read a little bit each day. (Unless you get caught up in it, and want to finish it to see what happens!) At the back of the book it tells you a little bit about the author and there are some questions you could talk through with a grown up.

Maths

Year 1:

Here is a game to get your brains working this morning. You have to put the numbers in the right order. Read them carefully and don’t forget to challenge yourselves!

Today we are going to be measuring length using centimetres. We can measure tiny things using millimetres (mm), small things using centimetres (cm) or big things we measure using meters (m).

Put your learning to the test with this game: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/measuring-in-cm

Blue group: Your learning today is about looking and finding the longest or shortest, the biggest or the smallest. You could measure these pictures first using Lego bricks or anything else you can think of. Put your learning to the test with this game:

Year 2: Today we are going to order lengths.
You may need to order from the largest to the smallest, or from the smallest to the largest.

Example:
Ordering lengths from longest to smallest
(15cm)    (34cm)    (28cm)
34cm, 28cm, 15cm

Read the questions carefully to find out what you need to do to solve each of the questions. Remember to check how many tens are in each digit to work out which numbers are the largest.

Literacy

The Anansi stories tell us about the adventures of a spider that is very different from the ones we see around us.

Today you are going to find out some facts about spiders. Tomorrow you will be using this information, so keep it safe!

Here are some things that you could find out:

What they look like? What special features do they have?

What do they eat? When do they eat? How do they get their food?

How do they move?

Are there different types of spiders? Where will we find them?

Here are some websites and a few videos to start you off.

## Spider Facts for Kids!

R.E

LC: Can you explain what a special place is?

Today we are going to think about special places. I’m sure you can think of somewhere that is special to you. It might be because you have a happy memory at that place, or you had a special experience at that place. Look through the power point and read about some people’s special places. You can answer the questions as you go along. When asked to talk to a partner, talk to your grown up. Draw your special place and explain why it is special to you.

PSHE

Today we are going to learn about having good hygiene. I want you to have a look at the power point about different ways we can have good hygiene and why this is important. Then I want you to take a look at the Keeping Clean I spy. Can you say what good hygiene these pictures are showing? I spy someone brushing their teeth. Take it in turns with someone else in your home. If they make a mistake make sure you tell them what the picture is showing!
