# Tuesday

## Good morning Troughton Class!

I hope you had a good Monday and enjoyed completing your learning.

I am really impressed with the work that is being emailed to me. Keep up the great work, you are SUPER STARS!

## Phonics

Miss Sharpe's group - Just like yesterday I would like to join in with the live phonics lesson streaming on youtube at 9:30am (remember if you miss it - don't worry! It will be on the youtube channel for 24hrs)
You are learning set 3 sounds so make sure this is the one that you watch. You should also watch the spelling video to match the sound which you are learning today.
It's really important to keep practising your sounds.

For your reading learning today you are still using the non-fiction text 'Planting Seeds'. You should read through the text again to remind yourself of the content.

For your main learning you are going to match information. Skim through the text to find the key word you need to match, then read the sentence before checking the options for matching the word. You should then be able to choose the best match.

## Maths: Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

Today we are going to learn our 10 times-table.

Again I would like you to watch and join in with the supermovers video on the link below. Webster the spider is going to help you learn your 10 times-table.

Can you count in 10s?
10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120

Last week when we learnt about using the multiplication symbol we learnt that the first number in the number sentence tells us: how many groups of a number there are and the second number tells us how many are in each group.
So, 5 X 10 means 5 lots of 10, or 5 groups with 10 in each group.

We can count in 10s to find the answer of 5 X 10 (10, 20, 30, 40, 50) five 10s are 50.

If we learn our multiplication facts, we wouldn’t even need to count in multiples! You have to practise your times-tables lots to learn them by heart. Can you learn your 10 times-table off by heart?

Watch this video on the link below to help you with your multiplication learning today. Make sure you have a piece of paper nearby so you can join in.

When you complete your learning you need to count in 10s and work out how many 10s are in an amount.
So if you had 60 as your ‘amount’ you would count in 10s until you reached 60 – (10) , (20) , (30) , (40) , (50) , (60) So 6 lots of 10 make 60 or six 10s make 60.

## Maths: Blue group

You are going to continue your subtraction learning today. You will still be counting backwards to help you subtract but today you will be crossing tens.

Watch the video from yesterday to remind you how to count backwards from 20.

You know that counting backwards means we have to jump back to find an answer.

When completing your learning activity use the number tracks and number lines to draw on the jumps to help you subtract amounts.

## Writing

This week we are going to look at a few poems about food.

In Year 1 and 2 we need to read and perform poetry to an audience. I think this is going to be a fun week!

First of all, let’s find out what a poem is. Watch the video to find out.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zjhhvcw/articles/zg6dng8

The first poem we are going to look at is very well known. You probably sang and acted it when you were in Nursery. It is called Jelly on a Plate.

Watch the video and listen carefully. In this video Michael Rosen sings the rhyme. He is a famous author.

I have attached a copy of the poem. It has different verses to the one you just heard. See if you can spot what is different?

All: Today I would like you to practise reading this poem and then perform it to a grown up. Perhaps you could send me a video of this.

Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups: When you have finished performing your poem, I would like you to answer a few questions about jelly on a Plate.

Blue group: When you have finished performing your poem, I would like you to complete your activity about Jelly on a Plate.

Challenge:

As a bit of fun, I have attached a tongue twister for you to try.

A tongue twister is a group of words or sounds that are very tricky to say correctly and quickly!

Have a go and see how you do. Can your grown-ups say the tongue twister?

## History

We have been finding out about significant people and events from the past.

Today we are going to learn about another significant person who lived a long time ago.

Can you remember what significant mean?

It means important.

We are going to find out about a woman called Florence Nightingale who dedicated her life to nursing.

She travelled to a place called Crimea in the 1850’s where there was a war taking place. She was shocked to find that many soldiers were wounded and that the terrible conditions (how good or bad a place is) were the reason many soldiers were dying.

She is significant in history because she improved the conditions for soldiers by training nurses and showing them how to prevent infections. This made nursing a profession and that is her legacy. (something left behind after death)

I would like you to watch the video and look at the power point to find out all about Florence Nightingale. Below the video is an activity. See if you can put the cards in order to show what happened in Florence Nightingale’s life.

For your learning activity today, I would like you to make a timeline of some of the important events in Florence Nightingale’s life. Then I would like you to sort out the facts to show her legacy.

If you cannot print the activity tell your grown up all about Florence Nightingale’s life. Perhaps you could draw your own timeline.
