Let's warm ourselves up. Here is something new. Let me know how you do!

Phonics

Please watch today’s videos on RWI YouTube channel. They will show at 9.30am and will be available for 24 hours.

If you are in Miss Barnett’s group and Mrs Beech’s group you will need to watch the set 2 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos.

If you are in Miss Meakin’s group you will need to watch the set 3 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos. When you have completed this lesson, try the reading longer words lesson.

I have attached the link below. Just scroll down to find the videos you need.

Today you are still using the Great Fire of London text. For today's reading lesson you can skim read through the text to remind you of the information inside the text. Your reading learning today is to answer multiple choice questions.

Skim through the text to find the part the question is asking you about, then select the correct answer from the choices.

Maths

Year 1

Yesterday we compared objects. Today we are going to use the language and symbols of comparing when looking at numbers up to 50.

more      fewer     greater than     less than     equal to

You need to look at the numbers carefully because they will be written in different ways. You will need to use your knowledge of tens and ones to help you. Look at comparing these two numbers

30      3 tens + 4 ones

3 tens and 4 ones is 34

So 30 is less than 3 tens + 4 ones

30 < 3 tens + 4 ones

Watch today’s learning on comparing numbers. Make sure you have your worksheet ready.

Year 2

Today, you are going to put your learning from yesterday into practise.

You will need to look closely at the block diagrams.
Can you say what the block diagram is showing? What is it showing the amount of?
How many of each type of ‘thing’ is there? Remember to read the scale on the left hand side (the y axis).
What type has the most?
What type has the least?

For your challenge, you are going to create your own block diagram so that you can prove you understand block diagrams.

Blue group

Today you are going to carry on practising your learning about doubling.

Remember that doubling is when we add the same number to itself. Like this:

Now you try. Complete the doubling number sentences. You can use objects to help you double to find the answer.

Literacy

At the end of the story Burglar Bill decides to lead an honest life and stop being a burglar.

Today I would like you to pretend to be Bill and write a letter to apologise to someone he has stolen from.

First, let’s remind ourselves about writing letters. can you remember when we wrote a letter for the story The Boy Who Cried Wolf?

There is a special way we need to write letters.

Here is an example of a letter to remind you how to set a letter out.

First you need your address at the top of the letter in the right corner.

Then you need the date you are writing your letter underneath the address.

On the other side of the page, you need to write who you are writing the letter to. We usually start Dear.

Then on a new line you start writing what you want to say.

When you have written everything down you want to say, you need to sign your letter so the person knows who sent the letter.

Now we know how to set out a letter we can start thinking about what to put in the letter.

Because you are writing as Bill you will need to use the words I, me and my.

• Think of a pretend address to put at the top of your letter (you can use mine if you want to)
• Write the date you are writing the letter
• Start your letter Dear _________  - the name of the person you are you writing to?
• Say who you are
• Say why you are writing – to say sorry for stealing
• Say what you did that was wrong – What did you steal?

How did you get the things?

Did you cause any damage?

• Say how the person must have felt when they found out their things had been stolen
• Say what you are going to do now
• Are there any questions you want to ask the person you are writing too?
• Finish your letter From or Yours Sincerely then your name (Bill)

Here is the start of my letter:

• you have a capital letter to start a sentence
• a full stop at the end of a sentence
• a question mark if you have included a question
• conjunctions to write longer sentences – and, but, because, so, or, when

Don’t forget to send me your letters. I can’t wait to read them.

Blue group – Make a card to say sorry for stealing something from a house. Think of a picture to put on the front of your card. Then write some sentences to say sorry. Don’t forget to start your card:

To ____________

and end

From Bill

Here is mine:

Dear Sam

I am sorry for stealing your vase. I will not do it again.

From Bill

I chose a vase but you can choose something else that Bill might have stolen. You might pick something from the alphabetical ordering activity on Tuesday.

R.E

As the 16th of February (next Tuesday) is Shrove Tuesday and we have been learning lots about Christianity I thought it would be a good idea if we learnt why some people celebrate Pancake Day!

Do you like pancakes? Not everyone does!

If you do, what are your favourite toppings?

The power point below will teach you a little more about Shrove Tuesday and some of the different traditions in different parts of the UK.

After you have read the information in the power point you have some activities to complete.

On your worksheet you have a picture of a pancake to colour and design in the way in which you would have your pancake! If you don’t like them perhaps you could design one for someone you know who likes them. You also have some questions to answer about Shrove Tuesday.
I have included a pancake recipe: you could make your own pancakes if you like them and have the ingredients! (You could make your pancake design match the pancake you make.)

There is also a cutting and sticking activity to design a pancake, you can complete this if you want to!

Here’s  a silly rap you could try to learn about making pancakes, just for a bit of fun!

PSHE

This week in our PSHE learning we are going to learn about online safety.

What devices or consoles do you use that are connected to the internet? (You might need to check with a grown up!)

I’m sure lots of you watch videos on youtube and play games on different devices and consoles. This lesson will teach you some really important things to do to keep yourself safe whilst you are online and what to do if you are worried about anything you see or hear online.

After you have completed the learning video, complete the worksheet below to show what you have learnt.

Blue group: Tell your grown up how you have learnt to stay safe online.

## Story time

It is time for a new story. Today we have A Monster’s Coming!

I hope you enjoy this one. ðŸ˜Š
