Maths

Year 1 – Today we are going to be learning to count forwards and backwards in 10s. Join in with the counting in 10s song.

## Jack Hartmann Counting by 10s

Look at a hundred square

What pattern do you notice?

Yes, all the numbers end in a 0. 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100 are all multiples of 10.

See if you can borrow some 10p coins. Can you count in 10s to see how much there is altogether?

Can you use pasta or Lego bricks and group them into 10s. Count in 10s to see how many you have altogether?

Year 2 – Today you are going to complete your weekly skills sheet first.

Now we are going to move onto multiplication, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Watch the first video to remind yourselves about multiplication.

Now I would like you to practise your 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Click on the links to practise each one.

Blue group – yesterday you practised 1 more. Today you are going to practise 2 more. Remember you will need to jump 2 spaces forwards on a number line.

Literacy

Today you are going to think about writing as Plop the Barn Owl. You are going to write a diary entry pretending to be Plop. A diary is a book that you can write about what you have been doing and your thoughts and feelings. Watch the video to find out about writing a diary entry.

Like all good writers, you need to plan what you are going to write first.

You can choose which event you want to tell your diary.

Is it going to be:

• the time you met the boy by the camp fire
• the time you met the old lady sitting outside,
• the time you met the girl

or

• the time you met the man looking at the stars?

It is your choice. Listen to the story again to decide which part you are going to write in your diary.

## The Owl Who Was Afraid Of The Dark

Look at the plan and write notes next to each question. You will use these notes when you write your diary entry tomorrow so keep them safe! When you have finished you can draw pictures to show what you are going to write about too.

Year 1 and 2 – Complete your diary plan

Blue group  – write colourful sentences about the pictures

Art

It is art! I know you all really enjoy our art learning.

Today we are going to look at abstract art. Abstract art uses lots of shapes and colours to make a picture.

Have a look at the pictures attached of artist Beatriz Milhazes.

What shapes can you see? Can you see small shapes? Can you see big shapes? Can you see where the shapes overlap? What colours have been used?

Today you are going to make a picture that uses circle shapes. See if you can make some different shaped circles out of coloured paper at home. If you have no coloured paper, perhaps you could draw the shapes and then colour them in.

Try placing the circle shapes into a picture you like. You can keep moving the shapes around until you are happy with it. You can even cut some of the circles in half and you can overlap the shapes to make your abstract art more interesting.

When you are happy, then glue the shapes down or if you have drawn them, colour the shapes in.

Beatriz Milhazes uses the colour black to outline some of the shapes to make them stand out. Get a black pen or crayon and do the same to your picture.

I have attached a sheet to show you how to make your abstract art. Good luck!

When you have finished, take a photograph of it and send it to me. I would love to see your abstract art.

I have also attached a video for you to draw an owl if you cannot complete the abstract art activity. You could try both art activities if you wish!

I would love to see your finshed owls.
