Good morning.

Are you ready for another day of learning? Let’s go!

I enjoy seeing all your learning and telling me all your news so don’t forget you can send me your learning on the class email or write just to say hello!

Today I would like you to read Hairy Maclary. I love this book. I hope you do too.

Maths

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

Yesterday we learnt about o’clock, today we are going to learn about half past. When the minute hand is on the 6 we say half past because it has gone half way past the hour. The hour hand tells us what hour it has gone past. Click on the power point to learn about half past. Then click on the worksheet to see if you can label the time.

Now click on this link to see if you can tell the time using half past.

Blue group:

This week we have been learning the days of the week. Today we are going to play snap. Print the cards off and divide them between the players. Each player keeps their cards face down, take it in turns to put 1 card at a time in to the pile in the middle. Each time you say the day that you have put down. When you find two identical cards you shout ‘SNAP’ and this person keeps the pile. The person with the most cards wins.

Year 2: For your Maths learning today, you will be learning about pictograms.
Pictograms are used to show amounts in pictures. Sometimes each picture represents more than 1. It will usually tell you in a key how much the picture is worth. So if the pictogram used triangles it would say triangle = 1 or triangle = 2.

If each picture is worth 2 and you can only see half of the picture, this means it is worth 1 as half of 2 is 1.

Literacy

Today we are going to look at a poem by a famous writer from a long time ago. His name is Robert Louis Stevenson. He was Scottish and wrote many books and poems. People still like reading his books such as Treasure Island.

The poem we are going to look at is called “My Shadow”

Watch the poem here.

Did you like the poem?

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.

When you have done this, I would like you to answer a few questions about the poem.

D&T

Last DT session we learnt about old and new toys. Can you remember any of the toys we learnt about? Old toys were usually hand made using fabric, wood and glass like the teddies that had glass eyes. New toys are usually made by a machine and are created using plastic. One toy that has been around for many years is Lego. Have you got some Lego at home? Have you created something before using Lego? Watch this clip to see how Lego is made:

Now I want you to pretend that you are at the Lego headquarters and it’s your job to design a brand new Lego character. Use the design sheet to colour and label your Lego person. Next use the layout to colour in and cut out your own Lego characters. There is a word search all about toys for you to finish with. I can’t wait to see your Lego characters!
