# Tuesday

Good morning.

Don’t forget you can send me your learning on the class email or write just to say hello!

donaldson@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

Today you are going to read the information about the United Kingdom and answer the questions by filling in the gaps.

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 making equal groups. Equal means the same. The groups have to have to have the same amount.

When we share amounts for dividing and completing repeated addition questions for multiplication we need to make sure we know the groups are equal.

Today is all about checking if we know when groups are equal and making equal groups ourselves.

Blue group: Your learning today is counting carefully. We are going to be counting the objects, you can cross them out as you count them if you like. Remember to write the numbers correctly. To start off let’s begin by counting to 20 with this fun song.

## Count to 20

Year 2: Today we are going to practise sequencing time intervals. This means putting periods of time in order. Check if the question is asking you to order from shortest to longest or longest to shortest.

There are 60 seconds in 1 minute.
There are 60 minutes in 1 hour.
There are 24 hours in 1 day.
There are 7 days in 1 week.
There are usually 30 or 31 days in a month except in February where there is normally 28 days (apart from leap years like this year where there were 29 days!)
There are 365 days in a year, (or 366 when in a leap year like this year).
There are 12 months in 1 year.

Literacy

Year 2 – Last week we looked at adjectives ending in y with the suffix er and est.

Today we are going to look at adjectives ending in y with the suffix ed and ing.

suffix is a letter or group of letters that goes on the end of a word and changes the word's meaning.

When we add ed to words that end in y we need to drop the y and add i then add ed.

cry – cried

When we add ing to words that end in y we need to keep the ‘y’ when adding to prevent having a double ‘i’ (ii).

cry - crying

Now click on the document and practise your spelling.

Geography
