I hope you are all ready for another day of learning.

Don’t forget you can send me your learning on the class email or write just to say hello!

Reading

How did you get on with answering the questions yesterday by filling in the gap?

Today, you have the same information but this time you have to choose the correct answer by drawing a circle around it.

Maths

Year 1: This morning we have a maths warm up to get our brains working, try to complete this independently.

Today we are going to be adding equal groups. This is the same as the repeated addition we did a few weeks ago.

Remember that 2 + 2 + 2 can also be written as 3 x 2 because there are 3 lots of 2. Click on the document to practise your learning.

Blue group:

Your learning today is all about ordinal numbers. Ordinal numbers tell us the position of something in a list, for example: first, second, third, fourth, etc.

We use ordinal numbers to order and position items and numbers, perhaps to say which position someone came in a race or place numbers on a number line / time line.

Dates are another example of ordinal numbers as they tell us when something happened.

1st     First

2nd    Second

3rd     Third

4th     Fourth

Today I want you to first order the numbers attached and then colour the correct picture in on the worksheet.

Year 2: Today we are going to move on to start to read the time.
We will be looking at o’clock and half-past times today.

Remember the minute hand is the longer one and when it is on the 12 it is an o’clock time. The hour hand is the shorter hand and points at what hour it is when it is an o’clock time.
Reading half-past times are a little trickier. The minute hand will always be on the 6 when it is a half-past time, the hour hand will be in between two numbers. If it was half past 1 the hour hand would be between the 1 and the 2 as it is on its way to 2 o’clock.

Literacy

Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to look at a book that has a hero in it who is ready to save the day!

First we are going to find out about superheroes. There are many fictional superheroes that you see in comics and in films. Can you name any?

A hero does not just have to be fictional. They can be ordinary people who do amazing things for other people and make a difference.

Year 1 – First test your superhero knowledge and match the name to the correct superhero. Then read the information about the superhero in the middle of the page and answer the questions about it.

Year 2 - Read the information about superheroes then answer the questions. Try to answer in complete sentences.

Art

This week we are going to learn about Piet Mondrian. He is an artist from the Netherlands. Can you find the Netherlands on a map?

Mondrian used primary colours to make his art. By looking at the power point I’ve attached, you can learn about these primary colours and create your own piece of art in the style of Mondrian. This can either be a collage, like the one shown in the power point or you can use paint to make a picture in the style of Mondrian. I look forward to seeing your art. I have attached a colouring in sheet for you too, remember only use primary colours.
