# Thursday

Good morning.

Let’s see what our learning is today.

I enjoy seeing all your learning and telling me all your news so don’t forget you can send me your learning on the class email or write just to say hello!

Today I would like you to choose your own book from home. We are looking at comics in writing so perhaps you have a comic you can read. If not why not use the time to reread a favourite book.

Maths

Year 1: This morning we have a maths warm up to get our brains working, try to complete this independently.

Today we are going to be finding ¼ of an amount. I have attached a worksheet with some ladybirds for you to share between 4 leaves. Remember that ¼ is 1 part of 4 equal amounts so today we are sharing equally between 4 leaves and finding out how much 1 leaf has.

Blue groupToday we are going to learn about the takeaway sign –

I want you to physically take away. For example for 4 – 3 =. We need to read the number sentence by pointing to each part as you read it. Go through the number sentence and complete the action:

4      get 4 objects

-      “get ready to take away”

3      take 3 away

=       how many are there?

Year 2: Over the next 2 days we will be learning about position, direction and movement.

Take a look at the ‘Position Movement Game’ power point. This is a starter activity for you to have a go at to remind you of some easier positional language before we move on to some trickier language tomorrow!

Also take a look at the positional language prompt. This includes lots of key words you might see and some explanations!
Your task today is to write the directions in the city to get to the different shops.

Literacy

Remember a comic tells the story through a set of pictures.

Sometimes these pictures have speech bubbles to show what the characters are saying.

Sometimes they have sound words or action words to let the reader have a clear idea of what is happening in the story. Here are some examples of the kinds of words you might find.

Today I would like you to draw the pictures to tell the story of Traction Man and Scissor Shark.

Draw the pictures carefully because the reader needs to be able to see where the story is set and which character is Traction Man, Scissor Shark and any other characters you might need.

When you have drawn your pictures perhaps you could include a few sound or action words for some of your pictures.

I have attached a comic strip for you to tell your story. You don’t have to use this though, if you want to draw your very own comic strip that is fine too. Remember to leave the rectangle below each of the picture boxes because that is where your sentences will go to tell the story. We will do this part tomorrow.

R.E

This week for our R.E learning we are going to be looking at important words.
We use lots of different words to show respect and kindness towards others, these words are important.
Have a look through the power point and answer the questions. Then complete the worksheet about important words.

PSHE

For your learning this week we are going to look at different emotions.
We feel lots of different emotions at different times in our lives and when good and bad things happen.

Work through the power point and answer the questions about the different emotions the children are showing.
Finally, try to draw different faces to show the different emotions on your worksheet.
