# Wednesday

Good morning. Did you have a lovely Tuesday? I have had some lovely emails so far this week showing me your fantastic learning and some of the activities you have been doing at home.

Remember you can write to me and send me your learning on the class email or just to say hello!

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 look at some fact families:

Last week and this week we have been practising adding and taking away. Today we are going to use these skills to compare number sentences. To do this we are going to be using greater than (>), less than (<) and equal to (=). Do you remember these symbols? Here is an example to remind you how to use them…

 SYMBOL WORDS EXAMPLE > greater than 10 > 3 < Less than 2 < 6

Blue group:

Let’s start off by counting as we collect carrots in our car. Can you collect all 50? https://pbskids.org/curiousgeorge/busyday/drive/

Your learning today is about counting and forming numbers to 20. Some superheroes have missed the numbers out, can you fill them in?

Year 2:  Today you need to find 3/4 of objects.
To find 1/4 you know you need to share the whole amount equally into 4 groups. You are finding 3/4 so after you have shared the whole amount into 4 groups you must then count the total of 3 groups. Each group is 1/4 meaning 3 groups is equal to 3/4.

Literacy

Yesterday you read a poem, now it’s your turn to write a poem.

Do you all know the song The Wheels on the Bus? Watch the video to remind yourself if you need to.

.

Now you are going to change this to write a poem about car noises!

You can use some of the ideas on the sheet or you may think of other words to describe the sounds each part of the car makes.

Design & technology:

In our last D&T lesson we learnt about stability, making something that wouldn’t fall over. Today we are learning about structure. This means we are going to learn about how things are built using different parts. We will learn about structure by learning about bridges. There is a power point attached that explains different structures bridges use.

After you have learnt about these different structures, I want you to design and make your own bridge. The bridge has to be strong enough to carry a toy car. You could build it so it reaches from a table to a chair or it could go over a house made of Lego. You could use straws, spaghetti, blu-tack, string, yoghurt pots for support, be creative! But remember to stick to your plan and think about the structure and stability of your bridge. After you have made your bridge, send me a picture, I’d love to see what your structure looks like.
