# Tuesday

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.

Yesterday we partitioned numbers by writing the tens and ones, today we are going to be partitioning numbers using dienes. These are actual tens and ones. Do you remember when we used them in class? Watch this video first and then have a go at the activity.

## Partitioning 2 digit numbers into Tens and Ones

Blue group:

Today you are using your careful counting to help with adding 2 amounts. Count the pictures carefully, remember to cross it out when you’ve counted it. Put the answer in the box then add the 2 amounts together. Try adding these 2 amounts in this game:

Year 2:

We will spend another day on place value today.

We are going to order and compare numbers. The learning you completed yesterday about place value will be important today!

Numbers can be more than, less than or equal to each other. You can show this using symbols.

51 > 21 means 51 is more than 21
97 < 99 means 97 is less than 99
You need to look closely at the tens and ones when comparing and ordering.
Tip: If the tens digits are the same, look at the ones digit!
If the ones digits are the same, look at the tens digit!

To start your learning today you will be saying which number in a pair of numbers is the smallest.
Then you will look at some number sentences using < > or = and tick the number sentences you agree with and cross the ones you disagree with.
Following that you will put < or > between two numbers to show which is greater than or less than.
Then you will order 6 numbers from biggest to smallest, then from smallest to biggest.
You have the same learning and challenges today but one of the challenges will really get your brains working today. I will be really impressed if you can solve it!

Literacy

Spelling

Year 1 - Today we are going to look at spelling plurals.

Plural means more than one.

For most nouns (naming words) we just add ‘s’ to make the plural.

one cat                   lots of cats

one dog                      two dogs

For nouns ending in ch, sh, s or x a we add “es”

one glass                three glasses

one torch                five torches

Watch the video to find out more about plurals then click on the worksheet to practise your spelling learning.

Year 2

This week we are going to look at spelling words with suffix -ly and -ness,

A suffix is a letter, or group of letters, that is added to the end of a root (base) word.

The suffix “ly” and  “ness” can just be added to most root words.

Where words end in “y” the ‘y’ changes to ‘i’ then the suffix “ly” or “ness”.

happy    happily    happiness

Geography

This is our last Geography lesson this year! I have really enjoyed learning about Australia and I hope you have too. Today you will be learning about Sydney, a city in Australia.

Look through the power point to find out some key facts then I have made a quiz for you to answer to see how much you learnt about Sydney!
