I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and have enjoyed spending time with your families!
I hope you are feeling refreshed and ready for your learning!
Please send me pictures of your work or grown-ups can let me know how you are getting on.
Our class email address to email examples of work to is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
If you normally go to Miss Sharpe's phonics group please click the link below to watch and join in with the daily Set 3 sound lesson. It will be live at 9:30am each day but you can still watch it a little later as they will be available on the Youtube channel for 24 hours.
If you are in Miss Fawkes' group then I would like you to read the information text below about elephants. Then you will need to use your Ninja eyes to skim and scan through the text to answer the comprehension questions.
Did you find out anything that you didn't already know?
For your maths learning today you will be learning how to recognise equal groups.
When groups are equal it means each group has the same amount in. The whole amount has been shared equally within the groups.
So if we had 4 equal groups of 2 it might look like this:
If one of the groups had a different amount in, then they would not be equal groups.
Click the link below to watch a video in more detail help you to learn about equal groups.
Now you are ready to have a go at your learning.
You will be completing some stem sentences about the equal groups, make sure you check which part the blank part is talking about.
If it says: there are _____ equal groups (this part is talking about the number of groups, in the example above the groups are the circles) when it says: with _____ in each group (this is the amount inside each group, so on the above example it would be 2)
So if we were talking about the example picture the whole sentence would say: There are 4 equal groups of 2.
It also asks for how many altogether, this is where you count the total. You could count in 2s for the above example 2, 4, 6 & 8.
If you cannot print your worksheets out you could write the answers on a piece of paper. You could also find some things at home to share equally (such as pasta pieces, cars, little toys, lego) and ask your grown-ups to make equal groups and check that they have shared them equally!
For your maths learning today you are going to practise counting in 2s.
Watch the video below and join in to practise counting in 2s.
When we count in 2s we have to miss one between each number. Look at the hundred square example below.
You can use this hundred square to help you complete your worksheet below.
You need to fill in the missing numbers in the gaps and carry on the pattern adding the next 3 numbers in the sequence. Find the number on the hundred square and jump forwards 2.
If you cannot print your worksheet out, write your answers on a piece of paper.
Over the next 2 weeks we will be looking at a fairy tale. Do you know what is a fairy tale is? Watch this video to find out about them.
The fairy tale we will be looking at is called The Princess and the Pea.Watch and listen to the story below.
Today you are going to answer questions about the story. Read the story to a grown up first.
Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups: Read the story of the Princess and the Pea and answer the questions. You will need to answer some questions with a sentence.
Your sentence will need to make sense.
You will need to start with a capital letter and end with a full stop.
Blue group: Today I would like you to order the pictures to tell the story of the Princess and the pea. If you cannot print the pictures and stick them in the correct order then perhaps you could draw your own pictures to show what happens in the story. Don’t forget the pictures need to be in the correct order or else the story will not make sense!You could even act out the story to a grown up.
For your science learning today you are going to learn about the different animal groups. If you look on the bbc bitesize link below you can watch some videos to find out about the different animal groups: mammals, amphibians, birds, fish and reptiles.
Now have a look at the power point below to give you some more information about the different animal groups. This power point will be useful when you complete your learning too!
Now it is time to show what you have learnt. Can you correctly group the animals in the pictures based on their features?
If you cannot print perhaps write the different headings and write the name of the animal beneath each heading.
