Remember to carry on with your reading. You are all fantastic readers!

What books have you been reading at home?

What was your favourite book? Why did you enjoy it? What was it about? I would love to hear what books you have been reading. Send me an email and let me know.

Have you been listening to Story time with Nick?

Maths

Year 1:

For our maths warm up let’s try some take away questions.  Can you complete the challenge by answering the questions in 2 minutes?

Your learning today is to fill in the missing part. We are going to cover part-whole models, pictures and maths sentences. You are going to have to count the overall amount first and then take off the amount you have been given to find that missing amount.

Remember to practise your times tables with Times Tables Rock Stars.

Blue group: Let’s start off by adding amounts. Can you read the maths sentence and count the animals carefully?

Your learning today is to count on to find one more than a given number. Use the number line at the top of the page to help you.

Year 2:  Today you will show that multiplication can be completed in any order.

Below each multiplication fact, write another which gives you the same answer. The first one has been done for you.

Literacy

Mr Gumpy decided to go for a ride in his motor car. It was a nice day and the sun was shining. But he only got as far as the lane before the children, the rabbit, the cat, the dog, the pig, the sheep, the chickens, the calf and the goat asked if they could go as well. But when it rained and the car got stuck nobody would volunteer to help push the car out of the mud. They had lots of excuses!

Can you match the excuses to the correct animal?

Imagine there were some different animals in the car with Mr Gumpy. What would their excuse be for not helping Mr Gumpy push the car out of the mud? Write some speech bubbles telling me what they would say?

Art

This week we are continuing our learning about sculptures. This week we are learning about Andy Goldsworthy. He is a British artist famous for his sculptures created from nature. Today you are going to create your own land art. Watch the power point I’ve attached and then go on a hunt for your natural objects. You can create your art inside or outside. Take a photo and send it to me with a few sentences about what materials you used, the shapes you used in your sculpture and the colours you used.

Have fun and I look forward to seeing how creative you get with your land art.

( I have attached a PDF version of the presentation in case you cannot open the power point)
