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.
How did you get the things?
Did you cause any damage?
Here is the start of my letter.
When you have finished read through your work and check:
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:
Here is mine:
I am sorry for stealing your vase. I will not do it again.
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.
Today, we will use our counting in 2s knowledge to count to 50. If you are not sure about counting on in 2s, you can use a number grid, which I have attached to your worksheet. Remember that when we count in 2s, we always miss a number so:
2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16……… Numbers in our 2s always end in either 0, 2, 4, 6, 8.
Watch this video to complete your warm-up and learning:
In the first task, I would like you to colour in the 2s to 50. Then, I would like you to answer the questions. Remember to count carefully and use the number grid to help you!
Today you will be counting forwards and backwards in 1s. You can use a number line like this to help you:
If we look at the number 4:
1 more than 4 is 5 because we count on forward by 1.
1 less than 4 is 3 because we count backwards by 1.
Have a go at the questions; I know you can do it! Remember your careful counting.
Try this game by trying the more than and less than 1 up to 10 option
Chinese new year
Chinese new year is on the 12th February this year. This year is the year of the Ox. Click on the story below to learn about the history of Chinese New Year.
Do you know anyone who celebrates Chinese New Year?
During the celebrations people make lanterns and write a wish for the new year on it. I’ve attached a lantern template so you can try this at home. People who celebrate Chinese New Year also have a meal with their family and throw party where some people dress up and dance around as the dragon from the story. I’ve attached a paper dragon you can make yourself. This year, it is the year of the Ox, I have attached a picture of the Ox for you to colour in. Have fun learning about Chinese New Year!
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.
