Which book did you read yesterday? Today I would like to read the other book.

Here is the non-fiction text about the whales.

Here is the fiction book about an adventure story some children end up having while playing hide-and-seek.

Maths

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

Yesterday we learnt what ½ a shape looks like. Today we are going to be learning about ½ of an amount or a number. To find ½ of set of objects we need to divide the set into two equal groups. Watch the link below and then click on the worksheet for your group.

## Fractions Year 1 - Finding Half of a Quantity

Blue groupYesterday we learnt about ½. Can you remember what this means?

Your learning today is finding half of pictures. Remember they have to match.

Year 2: For today’s learning you are putting all of your super 2D and 3D shape learning to the test!

Firstly, you need to read the clues for the 2D shapes and look at the pictures below, which shape fits the clue?

Next you will look at some 3D objects and sort them into the correct shape groups.

Literacy

Spelling

Year 1 - Today we are going to look at ir (whirl and twirl) ur (nurse with a purse) and er (a better letter)

Look at these words where does the ir sound come in the word?

bird     girl

Look at these words where does the er sound come in the word?

kerb     term

Look at these words where does the ur sound come in the word?

burst     turn

Now have a go at this “ir, er, ur” spelling game

https://www.spellzone.com/word_lists/games-1196.htm Click on the link, find the egg hunt game and click on it. You need to click the single player link and then you can start the game.

You have to click on the eggs to spell the words from the list.

Now click on the document and practise your spelling.

Year 2

This week we are going to be looking at a spelling rule for when we add the suffix ed and ing. Just like last week when we added the suffix er and est, we are looking at doubling the consonant at the end of a word before adding ing, and ed.

In short, one syllable words with a short vowel before a final consonant you have to double the final consonant.   (Vowels are a, e, i, o, u       Consonants are the other letters of the alphabet)

Clap is a one syllable word, a is a short vowel sound and there is the consonant p after it. So, to add ed: we write clap – double the consonant add ed = clapped

Skip is a one syllable word, i is a short vowel sound and there is the consonant p after it. So, to add ing: we write skip – double the consonant – add ing = skipping

Now you can practise your spelling. Can you choose the words to fit in these letter shape boxes? Remember, only put one letter in each box. All the words double the final consonant before adding the suffix ed, ing, er and est. Look out for a word with the suffix y at the end!

The first one has been done for you.

Geography

In our last Geography lesson, we learnt about Aboriginal people.
This week we are learning about the Great Barrier Reef! Read through the power point to learn lots of interesting facts.
Did you spot the clown fish? Who did that remind you of?

You have 2 choices for your activity today:

You can make a poster about recycling and trying to use less plastic and how this will protect the Great Barrier Reef

OR

You can create a leaflet about The Great Barrier Reef. I have attached a leaflet document to help you know how to set a leaflet out.
