# Wednesday

Hope you are all well and ready for another day of learning.

Let's start off with a warm up. Let's try something new!

Let me know what you think.

Phonics

Please watch today’s videos on RWI YouTube channel. They will show at 9.30am and will be available for 24 hours.

If you are in Miss Barnett’s group and Mrs Beech’s group you will need to watch the set 2 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos.

If you are in Miss Meakin’s group you will need to watch the set 3 speed sounds, word time and spelling videos. When you have completed this lesson, try the reading longer words lesson.

I have attached the link below. Just scroll down to find the videos you need.

Are you enjoying The Woman Who Fooled the Fairies?

Let’s see what happens next.

You can read the text on the video or you can you can read from your printed sheet.

First click on the video to start your reading learning with Miss Fawkes.

Skim through the text to find the part the question is asking you about, then select the correct answer from the choices.

Maths

Year 1 and Blue group

Today we are going to learn to count in 5s.

Like counting in 2s, it is a quick way to work out totals. There are lots of things around us that count in 5s.

Watch the video to find out how you can practise counting in 5s

Year 1: I would like you to count in 5s on the 50 chart. Colour the 5s number you land on each time. Then try the challenge.

Blue group: I would like you to count in 5s on the 20 chart. Colour the 5s number you land on each time.

Year 2

Today you are going to learn how to count the vertices on a 2-D shape.
Hopefully you are getting familiar with the different 2-D shape names by now, but I shall put them below again in case you need a reminder.

Vertices are the points where edges meet on a shape.

See this example:

So on a square there are 4 vertices.

Watch the video below to find out more about how to count vertices on a 2-D shape. Make sure you join in with the activities and pause the video when you are asked to.

Literacy

I hope you enjoyed Wolves yesterday. Did you notice it is a picture book? The whole story is told through the fantastic pictures Emily Gravett has drawn. The words are from the book that rabbit is reading about wolves.

I have attached it again for you to watch if you need to watch it again.

Year 1 and 2: Today we are going to tell the story of what happened to rabbit the day he went to the library. When we write the sentences, we are going to concentrate on making sure we are using:

• capital letters to start a sentence and full stops to end a sentence (you may need to use an ! to show how someone is feeling or a ?)
• using adjectives (describing words) in our sentences
• using conjunctions in some of your sentences – and, but, because, so, when

You can choose which ending you want to use for your writing.

Click here to see to see how I have started my story. All of the pictures are on the video so you will only need a pencil and paper to write your story.

If you want to write the sentences next to the pictures, I have added the worksheet so you can do this.

Don’t forget to read through and check your work when you have finished. Have you included some of the things on the check list?

Blue group. I would like you to write colourful sentences next to each picture. I have included a colourful sentence word mat to help you on the activity sheet.

I look forward to seeing your writing.

DT

For this DT lesson you will be using the Oak Academy learning video and activity to learn about and investigate the suitability of a material.

Last time we learnt that a material is what something is made from. We also found out that materials have different properties. Take a look at this material word mat to remind yourselves of some of the key vocabulary we learnt.

Did you know some of these materials and key words from last time?

In this lesson, we will be investigating the suitability of a material. We will be recording all of the different materials and testing to see whether they can bend and stand up by itself.

You only need some paper, some card and a pencil to complete this learning!

We are taking part in lesson 4 as we are carrying on from lesson 3 which we completed last time!

Story time

Today I am going to the 2nd and final chapter of Mantu the Elephant.
Let me know what you thought of the story!
