# Thursday

Good morning.

Here is today’s learning.

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 find a book at home to read to a grown up. It could be a fiction book, a non-fiction book or a poetry book. You could even send a video of you reading part of the book to me!

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 learning about data, data is information that we collect. There are lots of different ways we can show data. We can use pictographs, line graphs, tally charts and block graphs. I want you to click on the worksheet and answer the questions about these graphs.

Now have a go at this game where you help the farmer collect the fruit and answer questions about how many you have collected.

Year 2: For your learning today, you will be using your super fraction knowledge to find ½ or ¼ of an amount. Use objects at home to help you if you need to. Share the full amount by 2 when finding ½ and count how many are in 1 of the groups for your answer. Share the full amount by 4 when finding ¼ and count how many are in 1 of the groups for your answer.

Your second summer challenge today is to use your place value knowledge to identify the value of a digit within a 2-digit number. If you had the number 34 and the question asked you what the value of the 4 is. You would know it is 4 because it is in the ones column and 4 ones is 4.

Literacy

The story of Baboon on the Moon has quite a sad ending. He has been on the moon a while doing his job with no one for company.  It ends with Baboon staring at Earth. I think he is missing home, his family and his friends.

I wonder if we could think of a happier ending to this story for Baboon? What might happen to baboon? will Baboon get back to earth? How will this happen?

I would like you to draw set of pictures like the comic strip you did for Traction Man to show me what happens. Then write your story. The end of the story starts with:

Baboon sat and got out his trumpet. He looked at Planet Earth. How he missed his family and friends! He began to play a sad tune.

Remember you need to use a capital letter to start a sentence and a full stop at the end of a sentence. You may need to use an exclamation mark (!) at the end of a sentence to show how someone is feeling. (angry, happy, sad, scared, excited)

Send me your stories. I can’t wait to read your new ending to Baboon on the Moon.

R.E

In our RE learning we have learnt a lot about the Islamic festival, Eid.
Today I want you to think about a festival or celebration you and your family celebrate. What is it called? What do you enjoy about it? Is there something you do to help prepare for it?

At the top of your worksheet there is a box for you to draw a picture of you celebrating!

I look forward to seeing which festival or celebration you choose and why you enjoy it!

PSHE

In our PSHE learning we have been learning about different feelings. This week we are going to link our learning to reflect on how we are feeling at the end of this school year. It has been a very different school year!

Think back to when you were in school.
Who were your best friends this year? (They are still your best friends!)
